I shouldn't have walked away
I would've stayed if you say
We could've made
Everything ok
But we just

Threw the blame back and forth
We treated love like a sport
The final blow hit so low
I'm still on the ground

I couldn't have prepared myself for this fall
Shattered in pieces curled on the floor
Supernatural love conquers all
'Member we used to touch the sky
And

Lightning don't strike
The same place twice
When you and I
Said goodbye
I felt the angels cry

True love's a gift
But we let it drift
In a storm
Every night
I feel the angels cry

C'mon babe can't our love be revived
Bring it back and we gon' make it right
I'm on the edge just tryin' to survive
As the angels cry

[Ne-Yo]:
I thought we'd be forever and always
You were serenity
You took away the bad days

Didn't always treat you right but it was okay
I do somethin' stupid and you still stay with me

But you can only go for so long
Doing the one you claim to love wrong

Before too much is enough...
You look up
Find your love gone...
And...

We were so good together
How come we could not weather
This storm and just do better
Why did we say goodbye

Cause lightning don't strike
The same place twice
When you and I
Said goodbye
I felt the angels cry
True love's a gift
But we let it drift
In a storm
Every night
I feel the angels cry

Come on baby can our love be revived
Bring it back and we're gon' make it right
I'm on the edge just trying to survive
As the angels cry

Baby I'm missin' you
Don't allow love to lose
We gotta ride it through
I'm reaching for you

Baby I'm missin' you
Don't allow love to lose
We gotta ride it through
I'm reaching for you

Lightning don't strike
The same place twice
When you and I
Said goodbye
Felt the angels cry

True love's a gift
But we let it slip
In a storm
Every night
I feel the angels cry

    what a nice song...
    cool.
    basangbasa ako sa ulan...
    Pero promise sa lahat ng hindi marealize ang kagandahan ng angels cry
    super meaningful nito...
    wala nga akong asabi sa sobrang meaningful nito eh...

    yea...when you do things that u can hurt someone,you have to feeel how the angels cry...i wish i would see a real angel sent from above...love is a kind of emotions or feeling to a one person..its not wrong about having a LOVER..i have a lover.but im not making him cry..so that the angels dont cry...if u hurt a lover,FEEL THE ANGELS CRY..

    when one feels tired of their relationship saying goodbye is not always the right move. dont wait for the time, you have to realize the 'what ifs' and 'i should haves' when everything has come to pass... every prob can be resolved when you really love each other.. coz:"lightning dont strike the same place twice"
