Countless times I have tried

To impress you with my bravery

But still you donít seem so kind

To reward me with what I really need

I have fought many battles for an angel young like me

I have saved many prophets from their own obscurity

Many times I perished but merely managed to hold on

And every time Iíve come back again to your throne to proof Iím strong

 

All angels get their wings

I still pray for mine

Waiting for the day when trumpets sing

And you wonít recline

All angels get their wings

When proven they are pure

Tell me, what can I do to convince you my heart is poisonís cure?

 

Sleepless nights I have wondered

Maybe itís that Iím simply too young, but

You know I am even stronger than the others

A lionís passion and unicornís love flow freely in me

But still itís not enough and wingless I see another dusk go down

Iím drowning in the morning sorrow and want to turn around

But as I try to move I notice Iíve got stuck

Like in a silver spiderís web of death

I admit my prideís run off

 

All angels get their wings

I still pray for mine

Waiting for the day when trumpets sing

And you wonít recline

All angels get their wings

When proven they are pure

Tell me, what can I do to convince you my heart is poisonís cure?

 

Fighting the demons of the dark has always been my pleasure

Never did I whine, or scream or tell you I wanted to go back

To my safe home, my palace in the clouds

Still, you wonít return the pleasure of meeting me half-way

I have fought many battles for an angel young like me

I have saved many prophets from their own obscurity

Many times I perished but merely managed to hold on

And every time Iíve come back again to your throne to proof Iím strong

What more can I do? And I will act now

Who more can I face? Iíll take them on now

What must I bring back? Iíll catch the moon out of the sky

If you can return my pride

 

All angels get their wings

I still pray for mine

Waiting for the day when trumpets sing

And you wonít recline

All angels get their wings

When proven they are pure

Tell me, what can I do to convince you my heart is poisonís cure?

 

I know that you know

It wonít be long before Iíll take flight

I know that you hope

Iíll be safe in the midnight light

I know you are proud of me

I see your secret smile

But you canít let your fear get in the way

Of letting me be free to fly
