Was it that you weren't ready for the world
Or was the world not ready for you
If you had stayed you'd be 23 years old
For a living what would you do
Your brothers and a sister are all grown now
But only one is older than you
But now you're the Angels
You're watching over them too
Dad spent his teenaged years in Vietnam
While your ma waited at home
They got married on the 4th of July
You were still living in your heavenly home
The family always dreamed of someone like you
To be a part of the family tree
But now you're the Angels
You're watching over them too
