Angel came down from heaven yesterday
She stayed with me just long enough to rescue me
And she told me a story yesterday
About the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea
And then she spread her wings high over me
She said she's gonna come back tomorrow

And I said "Fly on, my sweet angel,
Fly on through the sky
Fly on, my sweet angel
Tomorrow I'm gonna be by your side"

Sure enough, this morning came up to me
Silver wing silhouette against a child's sunrise
And my angel, she said unto me
"Today is the day for you to rise
Take my hand, you're gonna be my man, you're gonna rise"
And then she take me high over yonder

And I said "Fly on, my sweet angel,
Fly on through the sky
Fly on, my sweet angel
Forever I will be by your side"
