    Lyrics

    Slow giving, slow coming
    Slow giving, slow coming
    Joy giving, joy coming
    Love giving, love coming

    Angel, I've seen you in the rocket speed
    I've seen you in the ground that feeds
    My angel, with me you've crawled through the trenches
    Forever scaling my defenses
    I need you now in my rebel mind
    Please lock the door and hang a sign
    My heart is open wide but the bleeding's hard to stop
    Explain to me what is and what is not, what is, what is, what is

    Slow giving, slow coming
    Slow giving, slow coming
    Joy giving, joy coming
    Love giving, love coming

    Angel, until the beast in me forever burns
    It's hard to know which way to turn
    On the guard rail of your 25 years
    I feel the piercing ember of every tear
    On a desert *plain*, on my knees,
    broken and ragged saying please baby please baby please
    Oh angel I've lost so many times
    Please, please show me a sign
    On a pretty lip
    On a broken grip, don't let me bring the roof down
    Let me build my spirit sound
    I'm standing right back where I started, please let me stay open hearted
    Oh angel, my sweet angel, angel
