Angel lyrics

First Aid Kit's new single "Angel" arrives on June 22nd, stay tuned for the release. Here are the lyrics:



Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

I've been afraid all of my life
Crippled with anxiety, shame and doubt,
And sometimes at times I'd like to shout
At the top of my lungs and just let it out

What has that fear ever done for me,
ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
But hold me back?
oh
What has jealousy and hate ever done for you
But remind you of what you think you lack?
So

[Chorus:]
Give me love and give me compassion
Self-forgiveness and give me some passion
I love you even if you don't love me, ooh-ooh
I love you even if you can't love me.

Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

All of this pain that I've kept concealed
But if I didn't speak it, it wouldn't be real
But sometimes, sometimes I feel I have to shout,
At the top of my lungs and just let it out

What has that fear ever done for me,
ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
But hold me back?
So

[Chorus:]
Give me love and give me compassion
Self-forgiveness and give me some passion
I love you even if you don't love me, ooh-ooh
I love you even if you can't love me.

You've been staring at your mirror
Tryina make the picture clearer
But angel, can't you see who's in front of you?
So

[Chorus:]
Give me love and give me compassion
Self-forgiveness and give me some passion
I love you even if you don't love me.

I love, oh can't you see you're free?
Oh, angel, can't you see you're free?
Oh, angel, can't you see you're free?
