I saw you standing on that bridge
Right then I knew the life that I would like to live.
Your frizzy hair tangled my mind
Right then I knew that I would love you for all time.
You ran your hand across the ledge,
Right then I felt that all my hunger had been fed.
You cracked a smile up towards the sky,
That thought alone will keep me happy for my life.
But I ask now...

How can angels fly when you're still on the ground?
'Cause I've been searching my whole life for you to turn my life around
And now I don't know what to say because the pain won't go away
And I've been crying since the day that you took all my good away

I wish I'd never walked away
'Cause if I knew you'd jump I'd dive into that bay
And I would have saved you from the cold
'Cause when you took that leap you stole my heart and soul.
So I ask now...

How can angels fly when you're still on the ground?
'Cause I've been searching my whole life for you to turn my life around
And now I don't know what to do 'cause I've been standing at your grave
And I've been crying since the day that you took all my good away

Your mother said you're up above
And all you wanted was a man for you to love.
Well I just started breaking down
'Cause the angel I've been searching for
Has left me on the ground.

And now I'll die alone.
