Song Lyrics

A song written for Billie Holiday
Tonight we dedicate to Michael Jackson

It was a cold and wet December day
We touched the ground at JFK
Snow was melting all around
BLS I heard the sound of an angel
New York like a Christmas tree
Tonight this city belongs to me
Angel

Soul love
This love won’t let me go
So long
Angel of Harlem
Angel of Harlem

Birdland on fifty-three
Street sounds like a symphony
John Coltrane and a Love Supreme
Miles, and she’s got to be, an angel
Lady Day got her diamond eyes
She sees the truth behind the lies
Angel

Soul love
This love won’t let me go
So long
Angel of Harlem…woo
Angel of Harlem…woo

Oh-oh-oh…
Oh-oh-oh
She’s heart and soul…
Hey-yeah, oh yeah
Hey-hey, she’s a love supreme

Blue light on the avenue
God knows they got to you
An empty glass, the lady sings
Eyes swollen like a bee sting
Blinded, you lost your way
On the side streets in the alleyway
Like a star exploding in the night
Fallen in the city in broad daylight
An angel in devil’s shoes
Salvation in the blues
You never looked like no angel
Whoa… Angel of Harlem
Hoo

Angel, Angel of Harlem
Angel, Angel of Harlem

I’m talking ‘bout the man in mirror
I’m walking if the man can change
And no body can be any different
If you wanna take the world
A better place
Take a look at yourself and make that change
Hoo-hoo-hoo

Stop or you don’t stop
Don’t stop till you get enough
Keep up with the force, don’t stop
Don’t stop till you get enough
Keep up with the force, don’t stop
Don’t stop till you get enough
Keep up with the force, don’t stop
Don’t stop till you get enough
Keep up with the force, don’t stop
Don’t stop till you get enough
Keep up with the force, don’t stop
Don’t stop till you get enough
Keep up with the force, don’t stop
Don’t stop till you get enough
Keep up with the force, don’t stop
Don’t stop till you get enough
Keep up with the force, don’t stop
Don’t stop till you get enough
Keep up with the force, don’t stop
Don’t stop till you get enough
Keep up with the force, don’t stop
Don’t stop till you get enough
Keep up
