Too Many Angels

(Alan Brown)
March 23, 2017
Words & Music Alan Brown
Like a prophet returning to his country
From a fact-finding mission overseas
I bring honour in my case and a smile upon my face
'Cause at last I'm seeing wood instead of trees
Like a sailor returning to his harbour
After one too many mornings all at sea
Seeking compass nor a chart, I can find the way by heart
On this last voyage of discovery

'Cause too many hearts have been broken
Too many good times gone
Too many angels have fallen from the sky
Now it's time to draw the line and move along

Faith, Hope and Charity were sisters
In the happy times long before the fall
Now they've almost passed away, getting weaker by the day
And they might not recognise you if you call

Nation shall speak peace unto nation
Was the song we all sang when I was young
And nothing I have seen in the years that came between
Will stop me singing in my native tongue
