And I'd love you to notice

To destroy for no one
Now it's that time again to take revenge
On all the debutantes and their friends

Hey, yeah

And all I see is empty

In the back of the car
The angel dust was given back to the stars

Hey, yeah
Was I good enough to break you
Hey, yeah

And in this fall from grace
We'll meet again
Another time another place
I've been down deep in you and me
Let's see where we can go
Yeah yeah yeah
Angels, Barbe
