Lyrics
Someone sent an angel to my side
and she lay me down with her love 'til I cried
and all the years of aching silence
deep within my oceans' tide
finally met their shoreline
because someone sent an angel to my side

Precious lady, precious lover, precious friend
I dreamed of holding you time and time again
and now I kiss your lips and taste the finest wine
but this life can be as cruel as it is kind

'Cause this babe, this is no mistake
Not with the kind of love we make.
So they can tear me up and put me down
But they cannot take the love I've found with you

Someone sent an angel to my side
and she lay me down with her love 'til I cried
and all the years of aching silence
-deep within my oceans' tide
finally met their shoreline
because someone sent an angel to my side

Touch is tender and it's sacred and it's real
and I cherish how this woman makes me feel
call me crazy, call me dyke
but she knows just what I like
and what I need
what I need

And to love you they say I have to fight
to be respected and to have an equal right
but I'm a person and I just don't see the crime
in the tenderness within your arms I find

Someone sent an angel to my side
and she lay me down with her love 'til I cried
and all the years of aching silence
deep within my oceans' tide
finally met their shoreline
because someone sent an angel to my side
