Eagle Over Angel

from by J. K. Coltrain

lyrics

I'm sure you don't remember me Its been a while I know
You put this tattoo my arm A long long time ago
The last time I was in your shop She was sitting by my side
The girl that I called Angel But her love for me has died

Chorus
So, put an eagle over angel Put a teardrop in his eye
And I'll just look the other way And try hard not to cry
Put an eagle over angel Spread his wings so he can fly
Toa place where hearts aren't broken And no one says goodbye

You put her sweet name on my arm With a tiny heart below
But it lasted longer than her love Now she's gone for good I know
For years I wore my Angel's name Always happy to explain
But when they ask about her now I just can't stand the pain

Chorus
So, put an eagle over angel Put a teardrop in his eye
And I'll just look the other way And try hard not to cry
Put an eagle over angel Spread his wings so he can fly
To a place where hearts aren't broken And no one says goodbye
