Santa Maria, Santa Teresa, Santa Anna, Santa Susannah
Santa Cecilia, Santa Copelia, Santa Dominica, Mary Angelica
Frater Achad, Frater Pietro, Julianus, Petronella
Santa, Santos, Miroslaw, Vladimir
And all the rest

A man is placed upon the steps, a baby cries
And high above it hear the church bells start to ring
And as the heaviness
Oh the heaviness settles in
Somewhere you can hear a mother sing

Then it's one foot then the other
As you step out onto the road,steppin on the road,
How much weight? how much weight?
Then it's how long? and how far?
And how many times ah..ah.. before it's too late?

Calling all angels
Calling all angels
Walk me through this world
Don't leave me alone
Calling all angels
Calling all angels
We're trying' we're hopeing'
But we're not sure how long....

And every day you gaze upon the sunset
With such love and intensity
Why it's...it's almost as if
If you could only crack the code
you'd finally understand what this all means

But if you could...do you think you would
Trade it all
All the pain and suffering?
Ah, but then you've miss
The beauty of the light upon this earth
And the sweetness of the leaving

Calling all angels
Calling all angels
Walk me through this world
Don't leave me alone
Callin' all angels
Callin' all angels
We're tryin'
We're hopin'but were not sure how
Calling all angels
Calling all angels
Calling all angels
Calling all angels
Walk me through this world,
Walk me through this world
Don't leave me alone
Calling all angels
Calling all angels
We're trying'
We're hoping
We're hurting
We're lovin'
We're cryin'
We're callin'
'cause we're not sure how this goes.....

    The way i've interpreted this song when i've sang: i used this as a prayer, although i'm not religious ("calling all angels... We're trying... 'cause we're not sure how this goes"). So for me, it's a prayer for other people, but not a prayer to a particular god because i'm confused by religion.
