Oh love, the moment that we live now
Will stay with me forever and ever and ever
Too good, you're too perfect for this world
A visitor, I wonder if you're from somewhere better

When they're calling all the angels to a great departure place
Leave us earthly creatures to our fates
I'll be running across the desert trying to find you on your way
Change your mind before they close the gates
When it's too late, come home angel

(Come home angel)
Angel don't go
(Come home angel)
Come home angel
(Come home angel)
Angel don't go

Some nights I lie up and watch you sleep
And wonder what places and planets you dream on
Someday I'll come to an empty house
They'll call you back, the silence, celestial beckon

When they're calling all the angels to a great departure place
Leave us earthly creatures to our fates
I'll be running across the desert trying to find you on your way
Change your mind before they close the gates
When it's too late, come home angel

(Come home angel)
Angel don't go
(Come home angel)
Come home angel
(Come home angel)
Angel don't go

They're imaginary people in a dream of seas and mountains
And the cities and the towns will all be gone
When they wake up, wake up

I'll be running across the desert trying to find you on your way
Change your mind before they close the gates
Before it's too late, come home angel

(Come home angel)
Before it's, before it's too late
(Come home angel)
Angel don't go
(Come home angel)
Come home angel
(Come home angel)
Angel don't go
