Lyrics

My angel lies in bed
Bandanna on a small head
Eyes look up, and I hear
"When will I go home?"
"I just wanna know"

Hiding the truth, I know
Holding back tears, I wanna cry
Words stick in my throat
I say "Maybe tomorrow"

Maybe tomorrow
Those words come back to me
Every moment I believe
My angel will be with me

I look around at crayon drawings
On a long white string
Smiley faces, word balloons
Crooked letters spell: "Get well soon"

My angel has a dream
No more pain, just light
Lots of time to run and play
"No worries, no, cause I'm all right"

Maybe tomorrow
Those words come back to me
Every moment I believe
My angel will be with me

Maybe tomorrow
Those words come back to me
My heart believes
My angel will be with me

My angel lies in bed
Bandanna on a small head
Lean in for a kiss
I hear a whisper
"When will I go home?"
