(music: A. Vandenberg, lyrics: R. Young)
There's a rose that grows up through the pavement
She's reachin' for the sky, but she knows
She's lost in a world that has no pity
It's all to keep the rats from your door
But in her dreams, it's hard to tell the fringe from the seams
And then she cries, do angels die
Everything she wants, everything she needs
It's hard to reach the sky, when you're on your knees
Everything she wants, everything she needs
Reachin' for it all, but she's in too deep
Now all her friends, the hookers and the prancers
They're tryin' to find the sense in it all
But she knows, that nobody has the answers
And no one gives a damn when you fall
She understands, you never get the blood off your hands
And then she cries, do angels die
And then she cries, do angels die
Reachin' for it all, but she's in too deep
Do angels die, do angels cry, cry cry cry, do they cry
Do you hear them cry as they're falling down, do they make a sound...
(Everything she wants, everything she needs) (repeats out)
