[Chorus]
You have one wing
I have another
Seeking shelter like sister and brother
Through the winter
Through the summer
Like one angel we'll fly
Far away

Hold my hand and we'll make it all right
From this hell that we live in
Cross the road until the light
Comes inside and lives within
It's a long and lonesome ride When your friends have all gone home
But the roses in your eyes
They pull me in so I don't feel alone

[Repeat Chorus]

Sometimes I just can't help but cry
When I think of what we've become
Like a soldier lost in the night
Forgetting all where he has come from
But the mud will soon become dry
And the sun will rise again
And the shadows in our eyes
Will fade away down to lower plains

'Cause

[Repeat Chorus]

[Music]

[Repeat Chorus]

You have one wing (hold my hand)
I have another
Seeking shelter like sister and brother (like one angel to the sky)
Through the winter
Through the summer
Like one angel we'll fly
Far away

So my friend now this I say
I won't leave you hangin' on
Hold on tight and don't fly away
Till one angel we have become
