Lyrics

Better Angels
©2016 Alice Bierhorst

Oh, lord
I slipped up on the job again
I thought that I was God again
I lost my way

Oh, lord
I sacrificed a friend tonight
How could I be so short of sight
I fell from grace

I keep trying to appeal to my better angels
I keep trying to fight my way back to the light
Oh, but no matter what I do, this darkness still seeps through
I keep trying to appeal to my better angels

Oh, lord
Just when I thought I had it made
All my plans have been mislaid
Gone with the wind

Oh, lord
Is there something broke in me
Something beyond sympathy
Will calamities never end

CHORUS

If only I could wash away the past
If only I could wash away the past
And start anew

Oh, lord
Can you teach me to forgive
All my sins so I can live
Can live with myself

Oh, lord
I know I’m not the only one
All of us have hurt someone
And cried out for help

CHORUS
