Paper Angels Lyrics

After every day-after-Thanksgiving sale
The malls just ain't complete
Without a bunch of decorations
And a paper angel tree.

There's artificial smiles
On artificial tree limbs
Saying what she'd love to have
And what to buy for him.

Well, I hope Maggie likes her new winter clothes
And her buggy with a baby doll
And maybe Tom'll smile in his new Nike shoes
When he shoots that basketball.

I can't help but wishing
That I could do more
But not just while I'm shopping
In the department store.

Chorus:
Paper angels you're in my thoughts and prayers
No matter where you are right now
Remember God's right there
He's asking all of us to help take care
Of his paper angels everywhere.

Going through the mail almost every afternoon
I see a Mom and Dad's worst dream
There on the back of a money-saving ad
To get my carpet cleaned.

Height, weight, hair, eyes,
date missing, and D.O.B.
A child's name, a picture
and the words 'Have you seen me?'

Chorus:
Paper angels you're in my thoughts and prayers
No matter where you are right now
Remember God's right there
He's asking all of us to help take care
Of his paper angels everywhere.

His documented bruises
Fill a folder in a file
She's a second grade self-portrait
Drawn without a smile.

And every town is littered
With this kind of debris
We've got to stop this madness
It's up to you and me.

Chorus:
Paper angels you're in my thoughts and prayers
No matter where you are right now
Remember God's right there
He's asking all of us to help take care
Of his paper angels everywhere.

Paper angels everywhere...
