Cover my eyes
Cover my ears
Tell me these words are a lie
It can't be true
That I'm losing you
The sun cannot fall from the sky

Can you hear heaven cry
Tears of an angel
Tears of an aaaangel...
Tears of an angel
Tears of an aaaangel.

Stop every clock
Stars are in shock
The river would run to the sea
I wont let you fly
I wont say goodbye
I wont let you slip away from me

Can you hear heaven cry
Tears of an angel
Tears of an aaaangel...
Tears of an angel
Tears of an aaaangel.

So hold on
Be strong
Everyday hope will grow
I'm here, don't you fear

Little one don't let go
(Ooooooooooohhhhhhhhh)
Don't let go
(Ooooooooooohhhhhhhhh)
Don't let go
(Ooooooooooohhhhhhhhh)

Cover my eyes
Cover my ears
Tell me these words are a lie

    I know he probaly wrote this for his niece who was dying of cancer and its a beautiful song with lots of meaning behind it. Even if you dont believe in angels and stuff the meaning of it shines through. Wjen someone loses someone close it really does leave a hole in your heart and this song highlights that.

    This song was written by ryandan for their niece who was dying from a brain tumor. Basically it's a plea and a prayer for someone you love to stay and not leave you. Which in turn could be used to apply to death, moving, break-ups & divorces, moving on in life, and many other things. As it is with most songs, the application and meaning is up for you to apply to your own life as you see fit. But for historical accuracy, this is why ryandan wrote the song, and this is their interpretation.

    It is about their beautiful 4 year old niece, who died from an incurable brain tumour. My son was being treated for cancer when she was as well. I will never forget her. Consider donating to cure childhood cancer. Thanks to the goodwill of others, my son survived. Let's make sure no child loses this battle, like ryan dan's neice.

    To me it's talking about a new born child that only got to live for a few moments before it passed on. It also sounds like a something a husband say to his wife and to the child he is loosing and dosen't want to believe it's happening to him. (heaven cry, angel).
