A-N-G-E-L
A-N-G-E-L

Just like a shadow
I'll be beside you
I'll be your comfort
And let it guide you home
I will provide you a place of shelter
I wanna be your zone
Tell me what to do
Tell me what you wanted me to do
I'll make you great to be a man
With a woman who can stand
Who will never promise given
Making vows to please her man

If I could be your angel
Your angel, Your angel
Protect you from the pain
I'll keep you safe from danger
You'll never hurt again
I'll be your A-N-G-E-L
Yeah, (A-N-G-E-L)
Hey, (A-N-G-E-L)
I'm gonna be your A-N-G-E-L
I'll be your angel

Just like the moon
I'll step aside
And let your sun shine
While I follow behind
'Cause baby what ya got
It is with all the props
With everything I'm not
Tell me what to do
Tell me what you wanted me to do
I'll make you great to be a man
With a woman who can stand
Who will never promise given
Making vows to please her man

If I could be your angel
Your angel, Your angel
Protect you from the pain
I'll keep you safe from danger
You'll never hurt again
I'll be your A-N-G-E-L
Yeah, (A-N-G-E-L)
Hey, (A-N-G-E-L)
I'm gonna be your A-N-G-E-L
I'll be your angel

Tell me why there's so many good men
And the world's misunderstood
He's a dog, he's no good
I wish somebody would
Disrespect my man
You're gonna have to come see me
I go hard for my baby
He's all that I need

So if you got a good one
Put your hands up,
Come on girl and stand up
Go ahead lift your man up
Get up
If you got a good one, put your hands up
Go ahead lift your man up
Get up
If you got a good one, stand up
Come on girl, and stand up

If I could be your angel
Your angel, Your angel
Protect you from the pain
I'll keep you safe from danger
You'll never hurt again
I'll be your A-N-G-E-L
Yeah, (A-N-G-E-L)
Hey, (A-N-G-E-L)
I'm gonna be your A-N-G-E-L
I'll be your angel
