Lyrics
I have a guardian angel
I keep him in my head
And when I'm afraid and alone
I call him to my bed

I have a guardian angel
Who keeps bad things from me
The only way to ruin it would be for me not to trust me
The only way to ruin it would be for me not to trust me
I have a guardian angel
Who's often saved my life

Through malevolent storms and crystal drums
The angel on my right
Has lifted me up and set me down
Always showing me what's right
And if my instinct proved me wrong
The angel set it right
And if my instinct proved me wrong
The angel set it right

I have a guardian angel
I keep him in my head
And when I'm having nightmares
He shows me dreams instead

I have a ring
I have a dress
I have an empty shell
By the books below tea cups
I've kept a kind of hell
By the books below tea cups
I've kept a kind of hell

Panic and anxiety so often in my head
But I had a guardian angel
Who took care of me instead
The champagne cork, the nightlight owl
A raven and a duck
The seed of pining parents
And your despairing love
The seed of pining parents
And your despairing love

Love and luck both having charmed lives
Can change all things about
I had a guardian angel
That's what this is all about

I have a guardian angel
I keep him in my head
And when I thought I was alone
He saved my life instead
And when I thought I was alone
He saved my life instead
