david m. bailey: Music & Lyrics

Angel in the Attic

(david m. bailey)
It’s Christmas time again
Feels like an old familiar friend
The angel on the tree
Is looking down at me

She's been sleeping in the attic for a year now
Waiting for this day to arrive
She’s only got a short while to shine her light
Just like us, gotta shine while you're alive

It’s Christmas time again
Feels like an old familiar friend
There's music in the air
Songs are everywhere

They've been left alone in silence for a year now
Waiting for somebody to sing
They haven't changed a note since the last time they played
Not like us, look at what a year can bring

It's Christmas time again
Feels like an old familiar friend
Gifts beneath the tree
Hope there is one for me

And that baby we’re all here to remember
The reason that the angel sings her song
Well the angel's gonna fly away when the song is over
But that baby will be with you all year long

It's Christmas time again
So good to have a friend
Emanuel.
