With just one look around

As far as the eye can see

Pairs of wings set tip to tip

Finally all set free

I am drowning in angels

How this room has grown

Over an instant, over years

Filled from wall to wall

Wings made of fresh-dried tears

I am drowning in angels

Some came all together

Some alone, some in pairs

All standing now as one

And when I look, I find you there

Drowning in angels

Some of you passed quickly

Some hard gave up the fight

Some found their way through darkness

Some in sunshine made their flight

We are drowning in angels

As I roam around I see fathers and mothers

Friends and acquaintances, brothers and sisters, too

I see cowboys and firemen swapping tales

And right there in the midst of it all, I see you

I am drowning in angels

One single glance around

As far as the eye can see

Pairs of wings set tip to tip

At last and finally, now set free

I am drowning in angels

Filled in an instant, filled over years

Standing wall to wall now

Wings made of fresh-dried tears

We are all drowning in angels

Some of us came together

Some came alone, we came as a pair

Standing together as one now

As always, you are there

Drowning in angels

In a sea of golden tipped wings

I am drowning in angels
