Lyrics

Last night an angel flew in through my window
And he took his place at the corner of my bed
I searched his face to see the peace I knew I’d find
And was surprised at all the pain I saw instead
His tear-filled eyes and furrowed brow had trapped his soul
Allowing no light out and no light in
So I gathered this sweet child up in my arms and sang
To remind him of the joy I learned from him

And the love that he could give knew no bounds
And he first time that he touched me
It felt like going home
And now he trembled in my arms
And he wept upon my chest
And he had no words to tell me what was wrong

The first time that he took my hand was in a dream
Floating with the stars to guide our way
He taught me I could laugh and I learned that I could love
He showed me there was joy in every day
He led me through the darkness to a light I’d seen
We walked through walls I thought were made of steel
I saw then that the walls I’d safely hid behind
Were my own fears and they were never real

And the love that he could give knew no bounds
And he first time that he touched me
It felt like going home
And now he trembled in my arms
And he wept upon my chest
And he had no words to tell me what was wrong

Then he lifted up his head and wiped a tear away
And he held it to my lips for me to kiss
Sweet and warm it entered me this pain he’d bled
And the words that filled my soul I knew were his
They said: “The love that you can give knows no bounds
And as long as love flows freely, you know that you are home
But still I’ll tremble in the dark and I’ll weep before the dawn
Because you have no way to keep me from my storm.”

And the love that he could give knew no bounds
And he first time that he touched me
It felt like going home
And now I held in my arms
As he drew in his last breath
Still no words to tell me what was wrong

And the love that we can give knows no bounds
As long as love flows freely
We know that we are home
And still we tremble in the dark and we weep before the dawn
Because we don’t believe the light of love will lead us through the storm
Don’t close your eyes, don’t bow your head, don’t give into the pain

Last night…last night an angel flew in through my window.
