Angel Of Fate By Edwin Boone.
If you were the angel at the end of my fate
I would be powerless to avoid you
And drawn to your embrace
I would cherish the moment
As a thousand lifetimes went by
And return to you over and again
Knowing each time that I would die
I would climb any mountain
And cross any river
Or desert, oceans wide
Even walk through fire
To fulfill the desire
Just to be by your side
And if you were the angel at the end of my fate
I could do nothing but come to you
With arms open wide, run to you
While holding on with my last breath
As the spirit left my lifeless chest, unto you
And returned me to the sky.
