Fallen Angel


I am the the dark angel that walks amongst you
Cast down from heaven, I'm faithless
My once white wings, now charred black and hollow
Crimson tears fall, it's hopeless

I know who you are, you're searching for me
Your soul told me, it needs me
I know you cannot set yourself apart from me
Your shadow told me, it wants me

I walk by you to make you shudder, to put fear in you heart when I am near
Light as you know it, will no longer be, darkness is what sets you free
I hiss your sinister secrets, to play and tempt you wickedly
Acknowledge who I am, as I hold out my hand

Don't you know I am the opposite of what you strive to be
I visit you in your dreams to hear you plead with me
Your once clear tears fall crimson at my feet
I hear you screaming, God, please forgive me

Your halo gone, your feathers charred black and hollow
You tremble as I lean down to kiss your crimson tears
As I pull you close, I whisper in your ear, Some angels are destined to fall
Isn't darkness amazingly clear

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
