Raven Angel

Well angels aren't always robed in white
I've seen them blending into the night
Seen them toying with sisters of Sarapis
Who must resist
Angelic bliss

I've seen a raven angel
Wrapped in little black dress
She laid her eyes upon me
Told me I was blessed
I've seen a raven angel
Rocking tall black boots
Spread wide her black wings
And launch into the night

The souls that are most in need of heart
Most spend their lives hiding in the dark
Bless their lives and help them to resist
That siren tryst
The poisoned kiss


I've wallowed in sin and guilt, been wracked
This heart that never gave love back.
Until this angel, black with a soul of light
I accept delight
Made her my wife

I love an raven angel
Saved by her little black dress
She laid her eyes upon me
Told me I was blessed
I'm loved by a raven angel
Rocking, rocking tall black boots
Wrap me in her black wings
And carry me through this night
Carry me through this life
Carry me
Till the end of time.
Till the end of time.
