Lyrics

Me and some of the boys were sitting around the other night
Started talking about politics, religion, love and life
And what a shame it was about 9/11
And what about hell and what about heaven
And is there or isn't there angels on earth
And then one guy said
Well you can take that for what it's worth
If it's something I can see or something I can touch
Well I might believe in all that stuff
So I just had to say to him

Are you telling me that you've never seen an angel?
Never felt the presence of one standing by?
No robe of white
No halo in site
Well you missed the most obvious thing
Man, are you blind?
Just look in your mothers eyes

And then I said who went through the pain
And smiled through the tears on the day of your birth?
She counted your fingers and toes and thank god you were whole
Son you outta know who loved you first, that's right
And who always came running everytime you cried out
And how many more things have you forgotten about
And who tried their best to teach you wrong from right
And how many nights did she leave on the light
While she waited and prayed that you came in
And who'd be there for you right up to the end
Think about it tonight

Are you telling me that you've never seen an angel?
Never felt the presence of one standing by?
No robe of white
No halo in site
Well you missed the most obvious thing
Aww Man, are you blind?
Just look in your mothers eyes

Aww Man, are you blind?
Just look in your mothers eyes
That's right

Bryan says...
I have listened to at least a hundred songs. I should have started here. This is the one. I could have been done in twenty minutes or so. Three weeks later I finally listen to each song, and it's less than twenty songs from the top of the list. Well, at least I know this is the most perfect song out there for the m/s dance.

Ashley says...
I just cried like a baby at work reading the lyrics to that song! It is beautiful!! Being a mother of a 3 year old I guess it hit me a lot harder than it would have 3 years ago. Simply said: BEAUTIFUL.

Victoria says...
