Looking For Angels Lyrics

Going through this life, looking for angels
People passing by, looking for angels

Walk this world alone
Try to stay on my feet
Sometimes crawl, fall but I stand up
'Cause I'm afraid to sleep

Open my eyes to a new day
With all new problems and all new pain
All the faces are filled with so much anger
Losing our dignity and hope from fear of danger

After all the wars, after settling the scores
At the break of dawn we will be deaf to the answers
There's so much bigotry, misunderstanding and fear
With eyes squinted and fists clinched we reach out for what is dear

We want it, we want, we want a reason to live
We're on a pilgrimage, a crusade for hope
'Cause in our hearts and minds and souls we know
We need it, we need, we need more than this

Going through this life, looking for angels
People passing by, looking for angels
Walking down the streets, looking for angels
Everyone I meet, looking for angels

So many nations with so many hungry people
So many homeless scrounging around for dirty needles
On the rise, teen suicide, when we will realize
We've been desensitized by the lies of the world

We're oppressed and impressed by the greedy
Whose hands squeeze the life out of the needy
When will we learn that wars, threats and regrets
Are the cause and effect of living in fear

Who can help protect the innocence of our children
Stolen on the Internet with images they can't forget

We want it we want, we want a reason to live
We represent a generation that wants to turn back a nation
To let love be our light and salvation
We need it, we need, we need more than this

Going through this life, looking for angels
People passing by, looking for angels
Walking down the streets, looking for angels
Everyone I meet, looking for angels

I became a savior to some kids, I'll never meet
Sent a check in the mail to buy them something to eat
What will you do to make a difference, to make a change?
What will you do to help someone along the way?

Just a touch, a smile as you turn the other cheek
Pray for your enemies, humble yourself, love's staring back at me
In the midst of the most painful faces
Angels show up in the strangest of places

Going through this life, looking for angels
People passing by, looking for angels
Walking down the streets, looking for angels
Everyone I meet, looking for angels

Going through this life, looking for angels
People passing by, looking for angels
Walking down the streets, looking for angels
Everyone I meet, looking for angels

Going through this life, looking for angels
People passing by, looking for angels
Walking down the streets, looking for angels
Everyone I meet, looking for angels

Going through this life, looking for angels

This song offers no hope. Don't look for angels... Look for Jesus! If you call out to Him, he'll answer you!!! He is what all these people need. Seek Him, and you will FIND Him. :o)
