Angel came down from heaven yesterday She stayed with me just long enough to rescue me And she told me a story yesterday, About the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea And then she spread her wings high over me She said app book of ra gonna come back tomorrow And I said "fly on my sweet angel, Fly on through the sky, Fly on my sweet angel, Tomorrow I'm gonna be by your side" Sure enough this morning came on to me Silver wings silhouetted against the child's sunrise And angel jimi hendrix angel she said unto me "Today is the day for you to rise, Take my hand, you're gonna be my man, You're gonna rise" And she took me high over yonder And I said "fly on my sweet angel, Fly on through the sky, Fly on my sweet angel, Forever I will be by your side".
