Angel For Hire - Single

lyrics

In the autumn when she was twenty-four
With a rose in her hair and looking for more
Out of nowhere came, like some movie scene
A man in red getting ready to leave

A note in his hand to a lover torn
Broken hearted couldn't take anymore
And she didn't laugh, didn't even speak
She just took his hand, and she kissed his cheek

She was an angel for hire
Set this earth on fire
Working on the streets
Down on Harbor Beach
Trying to make ends meet
To break from this scene
That they put her in
Since she's been eighteen

She said, "You might drown, love is just a war
One worth fighting trying to reach for the shore
And some people tire, and some retreat
But everyone looks for someone they need"

She was an angel for hire
Set this earth on fire
Working on the streets
Down on Harbor Beach
Trying to make ends meet
To break from this scene
That they put her in
Since she's been eighteen

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

I laid my money down, said, "I couldn't stay"
She said, "Honey, we all work to get paid"
Lit her cigarette, told me not to speak
If it made it easier on me

She was an angel for hire
Set this earth on fire
Working on the streets
Down on Harbor Beach
Trying to make ends meet
To break from this scene
That they put her in
Since she's been eighteen

Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on

Hold on
