In the arms of an angel

I float above the earth

I see below the sorrow

the happiness and mirth

I watch the rockets flying

I hear the people scream

in the arms of an angel

I pray for many things

I pray that all wars end

all soldiers can go home

that poverty and hunger

leave everyone alone

I pray that man lives better

their souls clean again

and those who feel so bitter

I pray smiles from within

in the arms of an angel

though I know it’s a dream

the things that I do pray for

are more real than they seem
