Theme of the moment: Songs that hit home

(This does not include the too-many-to-count breakup songs that I still occasionally cry over. These specific songs just… hit something in me.)

“Sweet Angel of Mine” by Kassie DePaiva
As you lay sleeping on my chest
A million thoughts run through my head
Someday you’ll think that you’re too big to hold
You’ll spill milk on my favorite dress
Fall down and scare me to death
And you’ll refuse to do anything you’re told

And I’ll be so mad that I’m almost in tears
And you’ll smile that smile and they’ll all disappear
Yes sometimes you’ll hide your perfect wings
But through these eyes all I’ll ever see
Is that sweet angel of mine

I won’t be ready for first grade
Or when you go on your first date
And you’ll think that I just don’t understand
And I know that there’ll come a day
When you start to push me away
And I’ll feel like I’m losing my best friend

So when you want to be out on your own
Forgive me if I find it hard to let go
Yeah someday you’ll spread your perfect wings
But no matter where you fly you’ll always be
That sweet angel of mine

And I know I’ll cry on your wedding day
As I watch your father give you away
And I’ll bow my head, pray you find all your dreams
And thank god for every day he’s given me
That sweet angel of mine

“An Angel” by The Kelly Family
I wish I had your pair of wings
Had them last night in my dreams
I was chasing butterflies
Till the sunrise broke my eyes

Tonight the sky has glued my eyes
Cause what they see´s an angel hive
I´ve got to touch that magic sky
And greet the angels in their hive

Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you
Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you

“She’s Crazy” by The Kelly Family
I see the skies through her eyes
And the sun shines trough her smile
Sticks and stones could break her bones
But words could never harm her

She is crazy she is crazy
You can´t hurt her
You can`t break her

The roses are crying
The roses are crying

I miss her more than words can express
Her lonely dances like the waterfalls
