I Pray the Angels Watch Over You.

I know that you're gone now
but I'm still wonderin' how
things went so wrong.
we never talk
or go on long walks.
I dream of the days
that once took my breath away
and I thought for a moment
that maybe you'd stay.
Where ever you are,
near or far...

I pray the angels watch over you.
I hope they protect you
wherever you go.
Wherever your life may lead
I hope you stop and think of me
every once in a while
and when you do
I hope you smile.
Even if you and I are through
I pray the angels watch over you.

I sit in my room
with the music full blast.
Listenin' to sad songs
sang by Taylor Swift.
Being wihout you is a painful shift.
Then I heard our song
and that was all it took.
I grabbed my phone
and dialed your number
for the first time in years.
Tears fell slowly.
You answered with the normal "Hello?"
And I spoke slow:

"I pray the angels watch over you.
I hope they protect you
wherever you go.
Wherever your life may lead
I hope you stop and think of me
every once in a while.
When you do
I hope a smile
lights up your face
even if we're through.
I pray the angels wach over you
because deep in my heart
at the end of every day
I wish you never would've gone away.
I miss the days
you and I were happy.
I go back to that
all the time."

The other side seemed blank.
You wouldn't speak.
You, then, you told me
to look out my window.
I saw a slight shadow.
My heart was racin'.
Back and forth, I was pacin'
but I pulled back the curtains
and I opened the window anyways.

There you stood
Roses in your hand
quoting lines from "Romeo and Juliet"
just like our first kiss.
And you hung up the phone.
I tried to speak
but you put a finger to my lips.
You smiled and your brown eyes lit up
and I saw your cute dimples.
This sight seems so surreal.
This is like the first time
and you said,
"I prayed the angels would watch over you.
I prayed they'd protect you.
I never wanted us to be through.
I prayed the angels would bring you back to me.
I wondered where you were
and I wondered if you were happy.
I loved you
but I had to let you go.
Just thought I'd let you know
I loved you then and I love you still.
Baby, I always have. and always will.

You held a ring
and climbed through my window
and you got on knee.
"Marry me?"
I answered with a kiss.
I glad I'm the only one who's ever bestowed a kiss
upon your angel lips.

Now here we go
into our happily ever after.
We pray the angels watch over us
and protect us as we go.
We're dancing through forever
holding eachother close.
This is the path we should've chose
all those years ago.

Now we'll be together
forever and ever.
For better or worse.
'Til after death do us part.

it is long i agree! but it wouldn't be so amazing if it wasn't long. "Now we'll be together
forever and ever.
For better or worse.
'Til after death do us part."
