Heaven Knows (This Angel Has Flown)


Words & Music by Clementine

There are times
When i’m lying in my bed,
How I bellow and cry
From this stupid get

And my eyes are like windshields
On a rainy day
Almost rubbed-out, swelling
As I keep on

Digging my face in these cold hands of mine
Heaven knows how embittered I am

Cause this angel has flown away from me
Leaving me in drunken misery
I should have clipped her wings and made her mine
For all eternity
Now this angel has flown away from me
I thought I had the strength to set her free
I did what i did because i love her so
Will she ever find her way back home to me
Aah…

Im so tired
I feel like catching forty winks
Being up all night in this elbow room
That puts me in a trance
Where hopes and dreams come true

Now my lips are burning
And my eyes are hurting
From this fumes I make,
Still I light another cigarette
Just to pass my time
Oh, heaven knows how embittered I am

Cause this angel has flown away from me
Leaving me in drunken misery
I should have clipped her wings and made her mine
For all eternity
Now this angel has flown away from me
I thought I had the strength to set her free
I did what i did because i love her so
Will she ever find her way back home to me
Aah…
