She never mentions the word addiction
In certain company
Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan
After you meet her family

She paints her eyes as black as night now
Pulls those shades down tight
Yeah she gives a smile when the pain comes
The pain gonna make everything alright

Chorus:
Says she talks to angels
They call her out by her name
Oh yeah, she talks to angels
Says they call her out by her name

She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket
She wears a cross around her neck
Yes the hair is from a little boy
And the cross from someone she has not met
Not yet

Chorus 2:
Says she talks to angels
Says they all know her name
Oh yeah, she talks to angels
Says they call her out by her name

She don't know no lover
None that I ever seen
And to her that ain't nothing
But to me it means, means everything

She paints her eyes as black as night now
She pulls those shades down tight
Oh yeah there's a smile when the pain comes
The pain gonna make everything alright
Alright yeah

She talks to angels
Says they call her out by her name
Oh yeah, yeah angels
Call her out by her name
Oh, oh, oh angels
They call her out by her name
Oh, she talks to angels
They call her out,
Yeah, yeah call her out
Don't you know that they call her out
By her name

    A lost soul
    Without love or limits never put in a structured life no direction looking in the wrong places for comfort . Dreamer.

    When i was growing up all i knew was battered,belittled,and abused. My dna mo gave birth to a baby boy when i was 16 0r so. After his birth i held him and cried ,i knew if she kept him,she would just damage him too.so as i was getting ready to leave the room i took his lilt-shirt an extra that was in his lil crib at the hospital-i kept it .. Took a lil piece off and put it in my locket that my grand mother gave me when i was a teenager with the one other thing that meant the world too me-.. I never forgot my little brother and found him after sooo many years.. And he is the strongest person i know and love ,next to my two lil girls.. But that locket was taken from me with the one other thing i will never get back.. So this song means everything to me and is close as i will ever get as if i still had the locket-that was 1986

    Born into a family that pays no attention to her. The pain of neglect and lonliness is unbearable to her. She finds a place of comfort by using drugs. The pain is the needle slipping in and she welcomes it. It is the only way to escape her pain of loneliness. Unable to feel love for herself or anyone she prefers solitude and her drugs. She bares a clild of her but cannot care for him because she has not learned to care for herself. She feels there is no hope in this life and seeks oblivion, and a heaven if it exists, there's nothing here for her...
