half a million angels lyrics – colin hay

walkin’ around like i’m in a trance
thinkin’ i lost you to circ*mstance
feelin’ the weight as the world pulls me down
while my heart and my head spin around

stayin’ alone on top of the hill
then one day i lost my will
thought i was drowning in the sea of loneliness
couldn’t hear a sound through the roar of the emptiness

so i listen in the distance
the voices that i hear sound like
half a million angels
singing very clear

even if they can give me strenght or help me make it through
half a million angels will never take the place of you

i think about you nearly all the time
sometimes your presence is so defined
whether you’re near or far away
makes no difference in my heart you’ll stay

so i listen in the distance
the voices that i hear sound like
half a million angels
singing very clear

even if they can give me strenght or help me make it through
half a million angels will never take the place of you
half a million angels will never take the place of you
