The Angel in Me


There's a devil in me that makes me do crazy things.
But there's an angel in me that spreads her wings.
'cause she's crazy in love just livin' her dreams,
She's crazy in love with you.

There's a devil in me that makes me do things all wrong.
But there's an angel in me that sings her song.
'cause she's crazy in love and not just in dreams,
She's crazy in love with you.


And what does that devil in me do?
It repeats in my mind that we're through.
But that angel in me has her say
And that angel in me will get her way.
So devil beware. My angel 's said her prayer
and my crazy things are all done.
I've nothing to fear. My angel is near.
And I know her side of me has won.


There was a devil in me that made me do crazy things.
But that angel in me still spreads her wings.
'cause she's crazy in love, still livin' her dreams.
'cause she's crazy in love. She's crazy in love.
She's crazy in love with you.
