lyrics

Write it down in a letter to home
You can sell it in a storybook
All of the time this battle’s taken from us
Cost more than any ground we took

I used to pray to see my home again
Used to dream about family
I used to pray for a miracle
But now it seems like it’s all up to me

If God won’t send his angels, Tonight we’ll take up wings
We’ll suffer in our glory, While we dream of simple things
If God won’t send his angels, Tonight a choir will sing
And they will tell our story of a freedom that won’t ring
If God won’t send his angels

Earned a chest full of ribbons and brass
And a heavy mind full of doubt
Seems I’ve been bringing this hell so long
I can’t remember what we’re fighting about

Ain’t that the way the old world stays the old world

If God won’t send his angels, Tonight we’ll take up wings
We’ll suffer in our glory, While we dream of simple things
If God won’t send his angels, Tonight a choir will sing
And they will tell our story of a freedom that won’t ring
If God won’t send his angels

Ain’t that the way the old world stays the old world
Ain’t that the way the old world stays the old world

If God won’t send his angels, Tonight we’ll take up wings
We’ll suffer in our glory, While we dream of simple things
If God won’t send his angels, Tonight a choir will sing
And they will tell our story of a freedom that won’t ring

If God won’t send his angels, Tonight we’ll take up wings
Tonight we’ll take up wings
