Jealous Of The Angels
I didn’t know today would be our last / Or that I’d have to say goodbye to you so fast / I’m so numb, I can’t feel anymore / Prayin’ you’d just walk back through that door / And tell me that I was only dreamin’ / You’re not really gone as long as I believe
There will be another angel / Around the throne tonight / Your love lives on inside of me / And I will hold on tight / It’s not my place to question / Only God knows why / I’m just jealous of the angels / Around the throne tonight
You always made my troubles feel so small / And you were always there to catch me when I’d fall / In a world where heroes come and go / Well God just took the only one I know / So I’ll hold you as close as I can / Longing for the day, when I see your face again / But until then
God must need another angel / Around the throne tonight / Your love lives on inside of me / And I will hold on tight / It’s not my place to question / Only God knows why / I’m just jealous of the angels / Around the throne tonight
Singin’ hallelujah / Hallelujah / Hallelujah / I’m just jealous of the angels, around the throne tonight
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4
