Words And Music By Tom Petty

I dreamed you,
I saw your face.
Cut my lifeline when drifting through space.

I saw an angel,
I saw my fate.
I can only thank God it was not too late.

. Over mountains,
I floated away.
Cross an ocean,
I dreamed her name.

I followed an angel down through the gates.
I can only thank God it was not too late.

Sing a little song of loneliness,
Sing one to make me smile.
Another round for everyone,
I'm here for a little while.

Now I'm walkin'
This street on my own.
But she's with me
Everywhere I go.

Yeah, I found an angel,
I found my place.
I can only thank God it was not too late.
I can only thank God it was not too late.
