Kris Kristofferson

Fallen Angel


It's sad to see we may never be the way we were before

We don't believe in the magic of the music anymore

And everything's older now, and colder and grey

Oh, darlin' I believe there's got to be a better way


It seems to me we've forgotten how to let our feeling show

We seem to be so much farther from the dreams we used to know

And too many more my friend, are dying today

Oh, darlin' I believe there's got to be a better way


Listen to the fallen angels learning how to spread their wings

How will they make it all alone

Look into the children's laughter, tell me what tomorrow brings

For those so far away from home


And I can say I'm not sorry for the thing we tried to be

But I'm afraid what we're heading toward is up to you and me

The future is ours you see to change today

Oh darlin' don't you believe there's got to be a better way


'Cause we got a choice and we've got a chance to change it today

Oh, I believe together we can build a better way

Oh, if we believe together there can be a better way
