Wings On An Angel
words and music by Lisa Derosia

Cover my heart
with the wings of an angel
And send me to sleep lord
send me to sleep
You can't clip the wings off god's little angels
Though the devil he creeps
the devil he creeps

Sweet gospel music
sings to my soul
Makes me feel there's someplace
I have left to go
My heart must be showing right through my dress
The blood's rushing down
oh lord what a mess

So cover my heart with the wings of an angel
and send me to sleep lord
Send me to sleep
You can't clip the wings off god's little angels.
Though the devil he creeps
the devil he creeps.

My only heart seems to be breaking
While my tongue
I'm holding it still
I'll never forget the things that you've taken
I'll never trust the stories you tell

So cover my heart with the wings of an angel
and send me to sleep lord
Send me to sleep
You can't clip the wings off god's little angels
Though the devil he creeps the devil he creeps

If it's not god that I believe in
If it's not Jesus who's saving my soul
I'll take my whiskey
you take your religion
And we'll meet again on that salvation road
