Beat Angels - Rickie Lee Jones

Begging round the sun beaten streets
I can't make me no connections
Locals here no speak no English
Where is my woman, well no one knows
Ah well, some girls just have to leave in the night
While you're fast asleep
But I don't worry, I move in the dark
There were lights, there were border lights
I thought I heard that drum in the distance playing
I saw the light, I crossed my heart and beat angels were there

I woke in some hotel room
I could hardly remember my name
They were only sixteen years old
I felt so lonely, I felt so ashamed

I know sometimes I just have to leave
In the night, while you're fast asleep
But I don't worry, I move in the dark
There were lights, there were border lights
I thought I heard that drum in the distance playing
I turned around, I crossed my heart and beat angels were there

Don't you wonder where one goes wrong
Is it somewhere in a foreign rain?
We're sitting out the storm
Every lamplight in town
Man don't know when he's got it his grace
Till beat angels come and take her away, beat angels, beat angels
Well I crossed my heart and beat angels were there, beat angels?
