Who in their lifetime is good on Earth
And will become an angel after death
You look to the sky and ask
Why can't you see them

First if the clouds have gone to sleep
You can see us in the sky
We are afraid and alone

God knows I don't want to be an angel

They live behind the sunshine
Separated from us, infinite expanse
They must cling to the stars (very tightly)
So they won't fall from the sky

First if the clouds have gone to sleep
You can see us in the sky
We are afraid and alone

God knows I don't want to be an angel

First if the clouds have gone to sleep
You can see us in the sky
We are afraid and alone

God knows I don't want to be an angel

    To me, personally. It's speaking of having fun with life, and not needing or wanting to become an angel at death because they are miserable.
    Who wants to be an angel if you have to suffer to get it and once you get it?
