Angel has been reading this
since before the day I wrote it down
She told me it was humorous
but she said it with a frown.

Angel thinks she sees herself
and her deepest thoughts displayed
in the words that I have uttered
and the sounds that I've arrayed.

Angel thinks she understands
and that what I write is true.
She thinks it may be dangerous
but she hasn't got a clue.

(Angel, in her innocence
believes that I should try again
to overcome the emptiness
she thinks my life has been.)

Angel thinks I'm cynical
and it shows up in my song.
Angel thinks I'm cynical
but she will not say I'm wrong.
