Angel



Lyrics

Why am I standing on a cloud
Everytime you're around
And my sadness disappears
Everytime you are near

You must be an angel
I can see it in your eyes
Full of wonder and surprise
And just now I realize

Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
In disguise
I can see it in your eyes

Walking down a crowded avenue
Other faces seem like nothing next to you
And I can't hear the traffic rushing by
Just the pounding of my heart and that's why

You must be an angel
I can see it in your eyes
Full of wonder and surprise
And just now I realize

Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
In disguise
I can see it in your eyes

Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
In disguise
I can see it in your eyes

You're an angel
You're an angel baby
You're an angel
You must be an angel

Now I believe that dreams come true
'Cuz you came when I wished for you
This just can't be coincidence
The only way that this makes sense is that

Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
In disguise
I can see it in your eyes

Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
In disguise
I can see it in your eyes

You're an angel
You're an angel baby
You're an angel
You must be an angel baby

Clouds just disappear

Angel, the single The third single of the Like A Virgin album is often forgotten. Angel was released in the US on April 10, 1985, as a 12" single with Into The Groove, the popular single from Desperately Seeking Susan, which overshadowed Angel. Still, it made it to #5 in the Billboard Hot 100 and to #1 in the dance chart. In July 1985, Angel and Into The Groove were together certified Gold for shipping more than 1 million copies in the US.

In Australia, Angel with Into The Groove as its B-single became her second #1. In Europe Into The Groove was released separately, and Angel reached #5 in the UK on its own in September 1985. In Japan it climbed up to #3.
