After every day-after-Thanksgiving sale the malls just ain't complete
Without a bunch of decorations and a paper angel tree
There's artificial smiles on artificial tree limbs
Saying what she'd love to have and what to buy for him

Well i hope Maggie likes her new winter clothes and her buggy with a baby doll
And maybe Tom'll smile with his new nike shoes when he shoots that basketball
I can't help but wishing that i could do more
But not just while I'm shopping in the department store

[Chorus:]
Paper angels you're in my thoughts and prayers
No matter where you are right now remember God's right there
He's asking all of us to help take care
Of his paper angels everywhere

Going through the mail almost every afternoon i see a Mom and Dad's
Worst dream
There on the back of a money-saving ad to get my carpet cleaned
Height, weight, hair, eyes, date missing, and DOB
A child's name, a picture, and the words 'have you seen me?'

[Chorus:]
Paper angels you're in my thoughts and prayers
No matter where you are right now remember God's right there
He's asking all of us to help take care
Of his paper angels everywhere

His documented bruises fill a folder file
She's a second grade self-portrait drawn without a smile
And every town is littered with this kind of debris
We've got to stop this madness and it's up to you and me

[Chorus:]
Paper angels you're in my thoughts and prayers
No matter where you are right now remember God's right there
He's asking all of us to help take care
Of his paper angels everywhere

Paper angels everywhere

    I first bought for a paper angel when i was 14... Today at age 39 i was able to provide christmas for 8 children, next year my goal is 12. These children will be in my heart all year long. I am a casa but have not been able to work yet due to a move. One day, until then i continue to reach out where i can.

    This song makes me think about what i have and what others have. I am so blessed to have what i do. This song makes me want to help those that don't have anything like food, shelter and clothing. Thanks for making this song because it touched a lot of people's hearts just like it did mine. :)
