Lyrics

playI sit and wait
playDoes an angel contemplate my fate?
playAnd do they know the places where we go
playWhen we're grey and old?
playBecause I've been told
playThat salvation lets their wings unfold
playSo when I'm lying in my bed
playThoughts running through my head
playAnd I feel that love is dead
playI'm loving angels instead

playAnd through it all she offers me protection
playA lot of love and affection
playWhether I'm right or wrong
playAnd down the waterfall
playWherever it may take me
playI know that life won't break me
playWhen I come to call
playShe won't forsake me
playI'm loving angels instead

playWhen I'm feeling weak
playAnd my pain walks down a one way street
playI look above
playAnd I know I'll always be blessed with love
playAnd as the feeling grows
playShe breathes flesh to my bones
playAnd when love is dead
playI'm loving angels instead

playAnd through it all she offers me protection
playA lot of love and affection
playWhether I'm right or wrong
playAnd down the waterfall
playWherever it may take me
playI know that life won't break me
playWhen I come to call
playShe won't forsake me
playI'm loving angels instead

playAnd through it all she offers me protection
playA lot of love and affection
playWhether I'm right or wrong
playAnd down the waterfall
playWherever it may take me
playI know that life won't break me
playWhen I come to call
playShe won't forsake me
playI'm loving angels instead

Williams told his biographer Chris Heath that this song is about his fascination with the paranormal:

I believed that stuff when I wrote Angels – that's why I wrote Angels. Angels isn't about anybody, it's about the thoughts that loved ones that have passed on come back and take care of you.

(The Daily Telegraph).
