Verse 1:
C#m       A    E
   Sunken eyed best
friend of mine
C#m       A
   Why do you sit so
 E          D
still still shaking?
C#m     A    E
   Superhero sapped 
of all powers
C#m             A
   I'll kneel beside you
E             D
watch you for hours

Chorus 1:
B            C#m      D
  There's an angel on you 
B         C#m
  leaning down to 
kiss your cheek
B          C#m         D
  Feathers floating on air
B         C#m           D
  This is my prayer for you

Verse 2:
C#m          A
   Steps of stone 
E              D
morning bright blue
C#m         A
   Stick of flame
  E            D
a candle winks at you
C#m       A   E
   In the pew head 
down I'm crying
C#m        A
   I think you have 
E           D
thoughts of dying

Chorus 2:
B       C#m          D
  I'm eclipsing them now
B         C#m        D
  Calling all allies down
B        C#m           D
  I'm consumed by your eyes
B           C#m      D
  Keep them open and full

F#m             G#m     A
   It's raining in your room
F#m      G#m        D
   Angel tears bask sweet
F#m      G#m     A
   Angel eyes on you
F#m     G#m                D-- x4
   They love all that they see

Verse 3:
C#m     A    E
   Dewy palm cemetery 
D   C#m      A
lawn   Walk alone in 
E          D
gardens of loss
C#m          A
   You can't have a 
E          D
flower of stone
C#m      A        E
   Never let this soil 
come between us

Chorus 3:
B            C#m      D
  I'm asking you on a date 
B         C#m          D
  for the rest of your life
B            C#m      D
  I'm asking you on a date 
B         C#m          D
  for the rest of your life
