Lyrics

THE ANGELS’ SHARE
Sammy Horner/Phil Madeira
We've been on this merry dance a lifetime now,
And I know we didn't start so we could fail
But I think I've tried 'bout everything that anyone could try
And your coat's been hanging on that rusty nail.

It's time to go, say au revoir, auf wiedersehen
I've done my best to play this fare
Fair thee well won't be seeing you and I won't be back no more
I'm letting go as if you were the angels’ share.

I know that every person has their sins
I know that's true of me as well as you
But your words have cut me deeper than my old swiss army knife
Now it's time that I was cutting loose from you.

It's time to go, say au revoir, auf wiedersehen
I've done my best to play this fare
Fair thee well won't be seeing you and I won't be back no more
I'm letting go as if you were the angels’ share
