Angel On The Roof
Del Amitri

Maybe I don't understand it
Maybe I was never meant to know
I heard he had the whole world in his hands now
But everything is still out of control

Maybe it's his way of explaining
Maybe he's just showing me the way
He gave the gift of love when I was lonely
Then he went and took that gift away

Now all the true believers say that she'll come back again
But no one ever shows me the proof
And when you hear the thunder growing louder than the rain
They'll tell you it's an angel on the roof

Maybe I'm not meant to question
How it is that this has come to be
The dream that I built at his suggestion
Has completely failed as far as I can see

Now all the true believers say that she'll come back again
But no one ever shows me the proof
And when you hear the thunder growing louder than the rain
They'll tell you it's an angel on the roof

And signs say call on Jesus, save yourself from sin
But right now I'd rather have a hangover than have to talk to him

Maybe I don't know the answer
Maybe now someday I shall be saved
But since he took her from this bed and blessed her
I see nothing but a mattress and a grave

Now all the true believers say that she'll come back again
But no one ever shows me the proof
And when you hear the thunder growing louder than the rain
They'll tell you it's an angel on the roof
They'll tell you it's an angel on the roof
