(I'm an angel with a shotgun, shotgun, shotgun,
An angel with a shotgun, shotgun, shotgun...)

Get out your guns, battles begun,
Are you a saint, or a sinner?
If loves a fight, than I shall die,
With my heart on a trigger
.

They say before you start a war,
You better know what you're fighting for.
Well baby, you are all that I adore,
If love is what you need, a soldier I will be
.

I'm an angel with a shotgun,
Fighting til' the wars won,
I don't care if heaven won't take me back.
I'll throw away my faith, babe, just to keep you safe.
Don't you know you're everything I have?
... and I, wanna live, not just survive, tonight.

Sometimes to win, you've got to sin,
Don't mean I'm not a believer.
... and major Tom, will sing along.
Yeah, they still say I'm a dreamer.

They say before you start a war,
You better know what you're fighting for.
Well baby, you are all that I adore,
If love is what you need, a soldier I will be.

I'm an angel with a shotgun,
Fighting til' the wars won,
I don't care if heaven won't take me back.
I'll throw away my faith, babe, just to keep you safe.
Don't you know you're everything I have?
... and I, wanna live, not just survive, tonight.

Ooohhh, ooohhh whoa whoa oooh whoa

I'm an angel with a shotgun...
Fighting til' the wars won...
I don't care if heaven won't take me back...

I'm an angel with a shotgun,
Fighting til' the wars won,
I don't care if heaven won't take me back.
I'll throw away my faith, babe, just to keep you safe.
Don't you know you're everything I have?
(I'm an angel with a shotgun)
... and I, want to live, not just survive, tonight.
(Live, not just survive)

... and I'm gonna hide, hide, hide my wings tonight.

They say before you start a war,
You better know what you're fighting for.
Well baby, you are all that I adore,
If love is what you need, a soldier I will be.

    To me this song means, if you love someone you will fight for them. It's incredibly inspiring and it's about protecting who you love and being able to hold onto their heart

    This song is not only perfect for Destiel but also an Inspiron song about loving someone so much you will do whatever you can just to protect them. If they need you to protect them then you will no matter what the cost much like an angel who will give heaven up for their love. (In my mind Dean is the lover and Cas is the Angel) it's about not just surviving but living life and loving every moment. At least that's what I get from it. Sorry for comparing it to Supernatural but that's just the perfect song for Destiel and it's how I can best compare it. Because their relationship is jut so cute and adorable and perfect and I'm so glad that the writers decided to make it cannon the last episode of the ninth season.

    Even the kindest people will become murderous just to protect the ones they love and anything that is quite important. This song has a person who wants to protect the one he loves, even if it means death to clear this up lol

    Destiel i mean seriously just listen and then think about the plot of supernaturals season 5. It's perfectly parallel to the plot. Simply beautiful
