Leon Russell – The Hands Of Angels lyrics

Well I could have been sick
I could have died
I could have given up
And not tried
To make it to tomorrow
Like a broken hearted lover

But there was a brand new start
And suddenly I was taken
New and Far away places
And the music I was shaken

It was a whole new race
When I woke on that first day
There was nothing I could say
I was in the hands of angels

Johnny and the governor
Came and brought me to my senses
They make me feel just like a king
Made me lose all my bad defenses

And they knew all the places
I needed to go
All of the poeple
I needed to know
They knew who I needed
And who needed me
And who would come help me

And who would just let me be

I was in the hands of angels
Until this very day
Inside the hands of angels
What more can I say
When you're in the hands of angels
Life is oh so seet
And you feel the love
Down deep inside
Even out there on the street

In the hands of angels

    There are so many people in life that have to reach their very lowest point before they can really experience what pure joy, love, & faith is. Some go all the way down, taste it, & then slip away in death; while others taste it, rejoice, & then share it. I truly believe leon's one of the latter & I am so very thankful because his voice is such a blessing to my soul. Thanks elton for all you've done. Prayers go to these two awesome performers & remember, 'god's not through with you yet'!
