Make Me An Angel

By Amy Black © 2011 Got My Dime Music

Mama says that I’m an angel sent to her from God above
She says I was sent to save her – show her what it means to love
I don’t much believe her, I ain’t seen no proof
Angels can do lots of things that I can’t seem to do

Sleep with mama in her bedroom. Pray each night that I can keep
All the demons and the devil away from mama while she sleeps
I ain’t got the power to release her from his grasp
If I was an angel I’d stop him in his tracks

Chorus
They can fly, they can fight
They can disappear without a word into a starless night
They can stop a man from doing wrong
Calm an angry storm with a heavenly song
There’s more to angels than their wings
They can fix all kinds of things
God make me an angel tonight

As I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord her soul to keep
If she goes before I wake
I pray the Lord her soul to take

Wish to God I was an angel. Wish that I could make things right
Mama says I came to save her. But she cries almost every night
I don’t much believe her. I hate to let her down
But if God made me an angel, I think I’d know by now

Chorus
They can fly, they can fight
They can disappear without a word into a starless night
They can stop a man from doing wrong
Calm an angry storm with a heavenly song
There’s more to angels than their wings
They can fix all kinds of things
God make me an angel tonight

So I can fly, I can fight
I can disappear without a word into a starless night
I can stop that man from doing wrong
Calm an angry storm with my heavenly song
There’s more to angels than their wings
They can fix all kinds of things
God make me an angel tonight
