There's one thing that I've learned in this life
The only thing sweeter than the laughter of friends
Is the smile of a woman when you do a little something
To please her now and then

I like the nightlife but I don't wanna be
One of those slouched over in the corner guys
Looking for the game that don't come here no more
Sleeping alone at night

I look a little rough but I got faith
That I still can change

But I'm no angel
Just lucky that I found one
And I never wanna see her
Slowly flying outta sight
Now I'm not trying to preach it
But buddy I believe it
If you wanna keep an angel
You gotta learn to fly right

Oh, it goes without saying
That I've never been the kinda fella who'd walk away
Fom a good time bar fight
Late night party at a stranger's place

Thing is that a woman walked into my life shining
Maybe I'm just bathing in her light
Yeah, I know she deserves someone better than me
And I'm trying to be that guy
Truth is this is all new to me
I guess it outta be

But I'm no angel
Just lucky that I found one
And I never wanna see her
Slowly flying outta sight
Now I'm not trying to preach it
But buddy I believe it
If you wanna keep an angel
You gotta learn to fly right
If you wanna keep an angel
You gotta learn to fly
You gotta learn to fly right
Learn to fly right
