lyrics from an unsung song

 all alone out here again tonight
just sitting in these, city lights
 sis, I think I messed up again
everyone ask me if i am ok
"yes i'm fine", i always say
but the truth is, yeah you know the truth is, I miss my friend

I keep holding onto this bottle like it's your hand
I hate to think I can never see you again
and I hate myself, cuz I wasn't there to say goodbye
I am not the same since you went away
a part of me died when you couldn't be saved
Now here I am, dead and dying inside

without my angel, how do I make it here
I am so lost by not having you near
all my memories, they're too hard to be around
and I keep trying, but their too strong for the whiskey to drown
oh please my angel, please know I hold you dear
and yes, my angel, I wish you were still here
but my angel, you sure earned those wings
and when I am alone, I swear I hear you sing 

picking you up and dancing around the room
you sounded so cute humming your own tune
I miss the warmth of your smile
brushing your hair, reading story books
laughing out loud when you'd give dirty looks
man, it kills me to know it had been a while

I guess i just had to go and move away
promising to come back and see you someday
I am so sorry that I lied
Always thought we'd have more time
that you'd never leave this life of mine
but they called to say that you died.... how could you die?

without my angel, how do I make it here
I am so lost without you near
all my memories, they're too hard to be around
and I keep trying, but their too strong for the whiskey to drown
oh pleases my angel, please know I hold you dear
and yes, my angel, I wish you were still here
but my angel, you sure earned those wings
and when I am alone, I swear I hear you sing

walking in that room, it got so hard to breathe,
seeing you laying there, but not looking at me,
I couldn't sing the song I wrote
all I could try to do is tell one last story to you,
and make it be the truth
but on my tears I choked

well this cup is empty and so am I
I am just crying tears I have already cried
I think I'll just call it a night
But if you ever do get the chance
come back to see me and have one more dance
and ask God when the timing is right;

without my angel, how do I make it here
I am so lost by not having you near
all my memories, they're too hard to be around
and I keep trying, but their too strong for the whiskey to drown
oh please my angel, please know I hold you dear
and yes, my angel, I wish you were still here
but my angel, you sure earned those wings
and when I am alone, I swear I hear you sing
