Down on a dead end street
Cold dawn, feeling beat
Tryin' to make sense of it all
Sun rose, burning red,
Visions spinning in my head
I thought I saw a shooting star fall
These eyes were blind
Now I found what I've been looking for

Down on a dead end street
Looking in the eyes of an angel
In the eyes of an angel

Somewhere a bird sings
On the strings of the wind
The rain drops gently strum
The sirens play a symphony
I hear the angel sing to me
My heart beats like a drum
I walk on air, misty eyed, I'm wanderin' in a dream

Down on a dead end street
Looking in the eyes of an angel
In the eyes of an angel

Yeah.

Night falls and lovers kiss,
On neon stars I made a wish
Walking down a street of light
Love burns a naked flame
Love burning in the rain
I'm lost in the city night
Into the blue, out of this world
Oh I can see for miles

Down on a dead end street
Looking through the eyes of an angel
Through the eyes of an angel
Through the eyes of an angel

All right.

Through the eyes of an angel
Through the eyes of an angel
Through the eyes of an angel
Through the eyes of an angel
