Lyrics

Whatever happened to the teacher from our school?
She said I play guitar much better than I play the fool
And what of Mr Peacock? we all thought he was a guru
‘Give it all you've got and let the music play through you’

And what about the lady who was waiting at the station?
She said to me that maybe I would reach my destination
The only thing, she said, is that you must know where you're going
And as she turned around I thought, there is no way of knowing

You're my angel in disguise
Fifteen minutes, fifteen years, both can change your life
And no one gets from A to B the way the old crow flies

And what about that snowy day we're walking through the graveyard?
I never thought that trying not to fall could be so very hard
But I'd already fallen, and that was borrowed time
I never knew that I would lose what never could be mine

And what about the little girl who crossed me on the towpath?
She told me not to cry and then she turned into a photograph
She looked a little bit like me, a ghost from yesterday
I'm sure she came to tell me that everything was gonna be ok
Hey

You're my angel in disguise
Fifteen minutes, fifteen years, both can change your life
But no one gets to heaven on wishes or on lies

You're my angel in disguise
Some things you don't understand you simply recognise
But no one gets from A to B the way the old crow flies

Sitting all alone one night just dreaming by the fireside
Quietly getting older, when suddenly I realise
My world’s a better place today, we give what we can give
And nobody can take away what they left me with
