I cut off my wings to be near you,
I ripped off my halo so I could fall down;
Cause heaven is hell without you;
Cause heaven is hell when you’re not around.
I see you each day from the sky,
Smiling as though nothing happened at all.
You forgot everything that you knew before,
Of your heavenly deeds, whether big ones or small.
And it crushed me to see you laughing,
Without those wings that once shone on your back.
And it hurt me to know that you forgot who I was.
Given the chance would you ever come back?
You being cursed was a nightmare,
You being gone was my death;
And everyday you smile like it’s perfect,
When I have absolutely nothing left.
So I tore at the lightning for strength,
And bled like an angel of sin.
Just so I could fall down to your level,
To escape from the hell that I’m in.
I stood in your way on the street,
You passed me like we’d never met.
I guess after warring in heaven,
This is the punishment that I get.
