a flash of beauty
a glimpse of splendour
angel incarnate

at the moment of rapture
becomes an angel

used to run with beautiful boys
tried to be just like them

didnít know how to act
forgot my lines

they cut off my wings

angels descend from the sky
beauty so appalling
to gaze upon their faces
turn men to stone

if we cannot love
let us fight

having lost the secret of flight
having found my place among men
