Dave Matthews Band - "Angel" lyrics

I call you up
You pick up
You call my bluff
On the card to love
You hold too close
Your hands
To your chest
I can read your eyes
But I confess
It's lonely far
From you, oh

Even when you're
Right by me
It's only why
I wait for you
To take my hand

Why do I beg like a
Child for your candy'
Why do I come after
You like I do,
I love you'
Wherever you are
I swear
You be my angel
You

I play my cards
The best I can
But I lose my luck
When you're not here
My darling heart
Won't you please give in'
I may be strong
But I want you back again

When you're not here
It's hard to pretend
It's all all right again
When you're not here
Love it's hard to pretend
It's all all right but still
Why do I beg like a
Child for your candy'
Why do I run after you
Like I do, I love you'
Whatever you are
I swear
You be my angel, you

Watch the day
Count your cards
Makes no sense
That I'm always losing
When you're gone

Why do I beg like a
Child for your candy'
Why do I come after
You like I do,
I love you
Whatever you are
I swear
You'll be my angel, you
When you're gone
