Angel Mine

Michael Timmins


[C] [Am] [Em] [F] [C] [G] twice

He [C] searched for those wings that he [Am] knew
that this angel should [Em] have at her back.
And [F] although he can't find them
he [C] really don't mind
because he [G] knows they'll grow back.
And he [C] reached for that halo that [Am] he knows
that she had when she [Em] first caught his eye.
Although his [F] hand came back empty
he's [C] really not worried
because he [G] knows it still shines.

[F] I can't promise that I'll [G] grow those wings
or [C] keep this tarnished [G] halo [F] shined
but I'll [F] never betray your [G] trust
angel [C] mine.

I [C] search all the time on the [Am] ground
for our shadows [Em] cast side by side.
[F] Just to remind me that I [C] haven't gone crazy
that you [G] exist and are mine.
And I [C] know that your skin is as [Am] warm and as real
as that [Em] smile in your eyes.
But I [F] have to keep touching and [C] smelling
and tasting for [G] fear it's all lies.

[F] I can't promise that I'll [G] grow those wings
or [C] keep this tarnished [G] halo [F] shined
but I'll [F] never betray your [G] trust
angel [C] mine.

[C] Last night I awoke from the [Am] deepest of sleeps
with your [Em] voice in my head.
And I could [F] tell by your breathing
that [C] you were still sleeping
I re- [G] peated the words that you had said.

[F] I can't promise that I'll [G] grow those wings
or [C] keep this tarnished [G] halo [F] shined
but I'll [F] never betray your [G] trust
angel [C] mine.

[F] I can't promise that I'll [G] grow those wings
or [C] keep this tarnished [G] halo [F] shined
but I'll [F] never betray your [G] trust
angel [C] mine.

[C] [Am] [Em] [F] [C] [G] (repeat and fade)

Except on the chorus where the strum pattern is more like all downstrokes.
