A few cds and an old Kodak
Some china plates and a Wal-Mart sack
Her mom passed down back in '92
The calloused clerk says twenty bucks
They both know that's not near enough
But she signs that ticket, cause the rent is due
She takes the cash and wipes away her tears
As another part of her disappears

She's worth so much more
Than this world gives her credit for
She keeps givin' pieces of herself away
She can't see she was made to fly
In the arms of heaven's light
She's fallin' cause her wings are tied and tangled
A pawnshop angel

Sometimes in her baby's eyes
She sees his face and that Friday night
In the backseat of his cavalier
Nine months later he was gone
She was 17 and on her own
She never dreamed she'd be standing here
She clinches to her mama's wedding band
She opens up her fingers and says give me what you can

She's worth so much more
Than this world gives her credit for
She keeps givin' pieces of herself away
She can't see she was made to fly
In the arms of heaven's light
She's fallin' cause her wings are tied and tangled
A pawnshop angel

She's an angel
And some day she'll fly

She's worth so much more
Than this world gives her credit for
She keeps givin' pieces of herself away
She can't see she was made to fly
In the arms of heaven's light
She's fallin' cause her wings are tied and tangled
A pawnshop angel
She can't see she was made to fly
In the arms of heaven's light
She's falling' cause her wings are tied and tangled
A pawnshop angel

She's an angel
