There are times
When I'm lyin' in my bed
How I pellow and cry from this stupid get
And my eyes are like windshields on a rainy day
Almost rubbed-out, swelling
As I keep on
Diggin' my face
In these cold hands of mine
Heaven knows how embittered, I am

Cause this angel has flown away from me
Leaving me in drunken misery
I should have clipped her wings
And made her mine
For all eternity
Now this angel has flown away from me
I thought I had the strength to set her free
I did what I did
Because I love her so
Will she ever find her way
Back home to me

I'm so tired
I feel like catching forty-winks
Being up all night in this elbow-room
That puts me in a trance
Where hopes and dreams come true
Now my lips are burning
And my eyes are hurting
From these fumes I make
Still I light another cigarette
Just to pass my time
Oh, heaven knows how embittered, I am

Cause this angel has flown away from me
Leaving me in drunken misery
I should have clipped her wings
And made her mine
For all eternity
Now this angel has flown away from me
I thought I had the strength to set her free
I did what I did
Because I love her so
Will she ever find her way
Back home to me

    Germaine j *b*n*r*, i am sorry for what i have caused you for the past years we're together. I thought i am your angel when you told me about this song, how fool i am to think that way, i lately realized that you are this angel that left me in drunkem misery. You may not be reading this anymore but i did have my chance now to mourn and feel what you felt before. It was never easy when i know you will never turn back. But i am happy for you now. Maybe during that time, you dont deserve me after all, but at least you will forgive me boi. U take care always. "i know you’ll meet someone better but would still think of me if he can’t hold you like i did
    Would you run back to me? I know this pain shall pass"

    the first time I heard this song during the time when I'm depressed, lately narinig ko ulit na kinanta ng taong minahal ko ng sobra.

    Actually.. Nka2relate tlga ako sa kantang toh.. Specially ung mahal co.. Knowing he is suffering because of kidney failure... He request to me to d.load this song and when i finally heard this song, my tears just fall down.. And realize that he is really depressed about his llness.. I decided immediately that i will be his angel for all his life.. And i will make him very happy.. Even giving my the half of my lifespan i will.. Just to be with him..
