No Such Thing As Angels

by Brett Matthew West

No Such Thing As Angels

She was over in the corner when I came home tonight.
Once again Jack Daniels helped me see the light.
She didn't have to wonder. She knew where I had been.
So many times I've headed down the road to Hell again.
I don't know why I go there it ain't the place I want to be.
She's been holding on to what she found in me,
but, how long can that woman stay here by my side?
This bottle that I cling to must break her heart inside.

They say there's no such thing as angels, well, my woman's wearing wings.
She's the rock that I still lean on. The gold inside our wedding rings.
The only peace I find here in the valley is when she gives herself to me.
There may be no such thing as angels but I got one here with me.

Every time I feel these walls start closing in on me
I run right to the bottle the only place I'm ever free.
I know that I have got to be right out of my mind.
My woman sits home waiting while I'm drinking myself blind.
I don't know what I'd ever do if she should go away.
I'd get down on my bended knees begging her to stay.
No matter what life does to me I can make it to the end.
She is more than just my lover she is still my best friend.

They say there's no such thing as angels, well, my woman's wearing wings.
She's the rock that I still lean on. The gold inside our wedding rings.
The only peace I find here in the valley is when she gives herself to me.
There may be no such thing as angels but I got one here with me.
