When the world has just begun,

You’re alive but you don’t know it,

The wind will pick you up to either fortune or to falls,

And there’s no one there beside you,

You don’t know where to look,

And every face is like a strangers from a Grimm tales fairy book,

Just keep your eyes wide open,

Your heart and mind as well,

You’ll find that troubles pass you if you see them coming well,

From the moment of conception,

You taught your lessons well,

You gave me good instruction in the miracles of the world,

And keep your sense of humour,

It will serve you til the end,

Cause people value lightness more than just about anything,

Forget about your failures,

Let them go,

Cause if you like your company,

You’ll never be alone,

You’re an angel,

I know it,

Just do the best that you can do,

And as the days fill up your diary,

I’ll always be there for you,

My angel,

My angel,

Well so much is going to happen,

You don’t know what’s coming next,

It doesn’t seem that fair that some get the best cards from the deck,

Keep those that keep you strong near,

And let the others go,

And always have a smile for strangers,

If they say hello,

But close your eyes now baby,

Rest your head,

You grasp my little finger like the first time that we met,

My angel,

I love you,

Just do the best that you can do,

And as the days fill up your diary,

I’ll always be there for you,

My angel,

My angel
