Lyrics

I got drunk on old photograph of you
That I'd taken in my mind- Only an angel
Sent from up above- Can tell me if your the devil
Or the one I should Love- Oh Where is that Angel?
I'm praying with all of my might
Oh, take me into your heart again
with kisses sweeter than lies
Don't tell me the truth- I can already hear it
In the way you hold in the night-
Only your bones can tell my hands
That you're right
I'm trying to be innocent as a dove
But I'm smarter than a nestful of snakes
Oh, Heaven help me, If only for the Devils sake
I got drunk on an old photograph of you
That I'd taken in my mind
Only an angel sent from up above
Can tell me if your the devil
or the one I should Love
