Lyrics

Sometimes it's easy, it's meant to be
I dream of the moment you'll be with me

'Cause I wanna look down now
I wanna get deeper
Can you let me in
To show me places, to be my keeper?
I'm waiting for my seraphim

Oh, I'm looking for an angel, for an angel
I'm looking for an angel
Yeah, I'm looking for an angel, for an angel
I'm looking for an angel

My heart is ready, my mind is open
My body's aching, I'll wait for you

'Cause I wanna rise up now
Don't wanna be earthbound
Reach up to the sky
Into the distance a new future
It's waiting for me in your eyes

I'm looking for an angel, for an angel
I'm looking for an angel
Yeah, I'm looking for an angel, for an angel
I'm looking for an angel
(I'm waiting, I'm waiting)
I'm looking for an angel, for an angel
I'm looking for an angel
Yeah, I'm looking for an angel, for an angel
I'm looking for an angel

And when good things are good I want to share them
I don't want to be alone
And when darkness falls, will you hear my call
And show me the way back home?
'Cause I want this life, to be twice as nice
With somebody by my side
So I dream of things like your golden wings
When you carry me in flight

'Cause I wanna look down now
I wanna get deeper
Can you let me in
To show me places, to be my keeper?
I'm waiting for my seraphim

I'm looking for an angel, for an angel
I'm looking for an angel
Yeah, I'm looking for an angel, for an angel
I'm looking for an angel
Oh, I'm looking for an angel, for an angel
I'm looking for an angel
(I'm waiting, I'm waiting for you)
I'm looking for an angel, for an angel
I'm looking for an angel
(I'm waiting, I'm waiting)
(I'm waiting, I'm waiting for you)
