Behind the curtains

Metal is cooling my skin

When nerve starts to lurk in

I kick it away once again

A few songs, in heaven I’m able

To play in absolute bliss

They say beauty is angel

I guess angel is this

I was friends with this one girl

Said we’d be best friends for eternity

Played with dolls, church on Wednesdays

And we put on shows full of harmony

Do I know what she’s up to now

Do I really care

Maybe she got a boyfriend

Maybe dyed her hair

I’m sitting at home now

Awaiting my call

In front of myself, I bow

But all I see are faults

Everybody’s getting a label

They stick till the end

They say beauty is angel

I guess angel is friend

I was friends with this one boy

We solved Rubik’s Cubes sitting on the floor

He taught me a special technique

I still use it now when I’m feeling bored

During a group project

He taught me about 80s fashion

Didn’t understand it then

But I still love Michael Jackson

It feels like I’m dreaming

I’m moving so fast

We’re running from demons

And it’s much too late to ask

Right now, I’m stable

But I’m still not sure what I should do

They say beauty is angel

I guess angel is new

I was friends with this one girl

Met her at a school on a Friday night

She wore a skirt, I wore a trench coat

And we danced to songs in the dimming light

It was one great night for me

I think I learned enough

Because I knew when I saw her face

We would fall in love

Underneath the spotlights

I felt you by my side

We smiled when the time was right

And if not, we cried

The perfect song on the turntable

I knew this was true

They say beauty is angel

I guess angel is you


Angel is you
