  1. Angel Can Fly

From the album American Gypsy

Angel Can Fly is softer around the edges and has lyrics full of feeling. At times, the sound of an acoustic piano shines through and gives this song a different soul. Contrast between clear and fuzzy guitar strums creates depth, while the trumpet has an illuminating quality. Though it ends on an IV chord and leaves a listener wanting, the guitar fades, and a drum-roll introduces the next song on the album.

Lyrics

Nothing I wouldn’t give
to see your face again
This oh so broken heart
left here all alone

I can still recall
the time we spent
livin’ a fast lane life
with no regrets
The candle burned at both ends
won’t last the night
oh when it burns
what a fine shining light yeah

Try not to fly no higher
than your angel can fly (3x)

Try not to fly no higher
than your angel, angel flies

You taught me how to love
I pray there’s more than this
Never to forget
til I hold you in these arms again, well

I can still recall
the time we spent
livin’ a fast lane life
with no regrets
The candle burned at both ends
won’t last the night
oh when it burns
what a fine shining light, yeah

Try not to fly no higher
than your angel can fly (3x)

Try not to fly no higher
than your angel, angel flies

Angel can fly (4x) yeah yeah yeah yeah

Try not to fly no higher
than your angel can fly (3x)

Try not to fly no higher
than your angel, angel flies
