Angels Don't Fall In Love - The Bangles

(V. Peterson/S. Hoffs)

I saw you today
She's lovely
You're such a heavenly pair
You hope and you pray
Someday she'll take you all the way there

You should know better, darling
When push comes to shove
Angels don't fall in love

You stand at the gate
Hoping to gain admission
How long are you willing to wait
She won't give permission tonight

You've got your higher aims
Got your ambitions
You think you're spiritual
And on some mission

Well, I can see it when I look in your eyes
When you think of love
You think of compromise

It's no big disgrace
There's no loss of grace
The trouble is there's always someone there to take your place
And the trouble is you don't believe that it's true
When the sun goes down there's something left for you

The trouble is I see you missing so much
While you're knocking on all the wrong doors
Looking for some angel's touch
You think she's everything you're dreaming of
The trouble is those angels never fall in love
