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

    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.

    In my opinion, the song is talking about a boy who is losing the girl he is in love and he denies to believe it. He is so sad that angels are crying for his sadness. He is begging her no to let go and he is hopping to get her back. The first time I heard this song I cried. For then it is my favourite song. Is there a movie?

    Castiel! Talking about how you can't hear his true voice or see his true visage and then dean is gone and its the end of his world because he rebeled from heaven for this guy and now everthing he has been fighting for is gone and he's crying and all the angels in heaven are crying because their brother is depressed and sad and alone and castiel will give everything to get dean back and he wont let go of dean and he's saying that he's here for dean and he wont ever let go and that dean being gone is a lie O.
