ONLY AN ANGEL
Patterson, Parvin & Hall
Copyright 2006


Sure enough he's done it again
The way he treats her should be a crime
She caught him in the lie he was livin'
But you know she'll forgive him one more time
In the cold hard light of the day
Doesn't the man look small
There's just no way a woman could love him through it all

CHORUS:
Only an angel could really love a man that way
He's been breakin' her heart right from the start
But she won't walk away
He never could tell at all where his best interests lay
Only a fool would treat an angel that way

Sooner or later she'll find her anger
And that'll give her wings to fly
Well call it chivalry but until she is free
I'll be there standing by
Because I'm sure a love that pure
Would make a man ten feet tall
And for that you need an angel after all...

CHORUS:
Only an angel could really love a man that way
Well she touched my heart right from the start
And I can't walk away
He never could tell at all where his best interests lay
Only a fool would let that angel get away...

Only an angel...
Only an angel...
