lyrics

9. Gentle is the Angel

Gentle, gentle is the angel
gentle, gentle is the angel who blows the candle out

and you were running through the wood
how the branches grabbed at you with human hands
and the stars in the night swirling 'round her face
Was the moon in the sky come to kiss
you goodbye

Gentle, gentle is the angel
gentle, gentle is the angel who blows the candle out

They were running in the night
how their teeth were long and white
and voices low
and the frozen air you worked
with shallow breath
and you stood alone in the snow
With the scent of blood

Gentle, gentle is the angel
gentle, gentle is the angel who blows the candle out
