Misguided Angel (Cowboy Junkies)

She is my Misguided Angel…or, perhaps I have been Hers. This is how I feel about Her when I am all swoopy, not caring about consequences, just wanting Her…And, no, I’m not getting any work done today.

MISGUIDED ANGEL

I said ‘mama, She’s crazy and She scares me
But I want Her by my side
Though She’s wild and She’s bad
And sometimes just plain mad
I need Her to keep me satisfied.’

I said ‘papa, don’t cry cause it’s alright
And I see you in some of Her ways
Though She might not give me the life that you wanted
I’ll love Her the rest of my days’

Misguided angel hangin’ over me
Heart like a gabriel, pure and white as ivory
Soul like a lucifer, black and cold like a piece of lead
Misguided angel, love You ’til I’m dead

I said ‘brother, you speak to me of passion
You said never to settle for nothing less
Well, it’s in the way She walks,
It’s in the way She talks
Her smile, Her anger and Her kisses’

I said ‘sister, don’t you understand?
She’s all I ever wanted in a man
I’m tired of sittin’ around the t.v. every night
Hoping I’m finding a mr. right’

Misguided angel hangin’ over me
Heart like a gabriel, pure and white as ivory
Soul like a lucifer
Black and cold like a piece of lead
Misguided angel, love You ’til I’m dead

She says ‘baby, don’t listen to what they say
There comes a time when you have to break away’
She says ‘baby there are things we all cling to all our life
It’s time to let them go and become my wife’

Misguided angel hangin’ over me
Heart like a gabriel, pure and white as ivory
Soul like a lucifer
Black and cold like a piece of lead
Misguided angel, love You ’til I’m dead
