Too Many Angels Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
There's an angel on a ribbon
Hanging from the armoire door
There's a Cupid with his feet crossed
On the bird cage by the door
There's a baby angel drummer
Verse 2
His eyes are open wide
And two more tiny cherubs
On the mantle side by side
Too many angels
Verse 3
Have seen me crying
Too many angels
Have heard you lying
Verse 4
There are photographs of children
All in their silver frames
On the window sills and tabletops
Lit by candle flames
Verse 5
And upon their angel faces
Life's expectations climb
Where the moment has preserved them
From the ravages of time
Verse 6
Too many angels
Have seen me crying
Too many angels
Have heard you lying
Verse 7
Bring the morning on
Voices sing of day
I want to step out in the morning sun
Through the flood of tears
Verse 8
I want this darkness gone
Your sweet face appears
These apparitions coming one by one
But there's no end in sight
Verse 9
Only the dead of night
And too many angels
Verse 10
Too many angels
Have seen me crying
Too many angels
Have heard you lying
Too many angels
Verse 11
Bring the morning on
Voices sing of day
I want to step out in the morning sun
Through the flood of tears
Verse 12
I want to greet the dawn
Cast away these fears
Forget about the things we could have done
Bring the morning on
Verse 13
Voices sing of day
I want to watch the children as they run
Through the broken years
I want this darkness gone
Verse 14
Your sweet face appears
These apparitions coming one by one
But there's no end in sight
Only the dead of night
And too many angels
