Bobby Helms – The Fool & The Angel lyrics

Here is the story of
The fool and the angel

The fool and the angel
Once fell in love
While heaven was watching
From up above

The fool gave his love
In a reckless way
For fools only live for today

But love to the angel
Was not the same
She couldn't believe
It was just a game

She gave all the love
In her heart and soul
For true love's an angel's goal

How do I know these things I say
The answer is all too clear
I was the fool who walked away
When Heaven was, oh, so near

Now the fool and
The angel are far apart
The fool learned too late
What was in his heart

But always the spark of hope will remain
The fool finds his angel again
But always the spark of hope will remain
The fool finds his angel again
