Angel

Back in '98,I had this friend,a girl,who was in college,and I wrote a few songs for her before she went off to China to save souls.She's read the words for this song,but never heard it.It's a plea for higher help and I hope it's helped her along the way.
At night I lay awake
Put my demons to rest
Pray to the Lord for my soul's sake
And for the love of someone else
Gotta ease my mind
'fore I go insane
And though I beg forgiveness
I know I'll never be a saint
Lord won't You send me down an angel
Lord won't You send one just for me
Lord won't You please,show some pity on me
Won't You please send me an angel
I see you standin' alone
Oh,you never smile
See the sadness in your eyes
Expressionless all the while
If you needed someone
Oh,just to talk to
I'd gladly put my pain aside
But,only for you
Could you be my angel
Lord,did You send this one just for me
Lord, did You send her down,
Lord,did You send her down
Could this be my angel
At night I still lay awake
Put my demons to rest
Pray to the Lord for my soul's sake
And for the love of someone else
Gotta ease my mind
'fore I go insane
And though I beg forgiveness
I know I'll never be a saint
Lord, won't You send me down an angel
Lord, could You send one just for me
Lord, would You please,
Show some pity on me
Could You send me
an angel
