Rattle and Hum

 
It was a cold and wet December day
When we touched the ground at JFK
Snow was melting on the ground
On BLS I heard the sound of an angel

New York, like a Christmas tree
Tonight this city belongs to me, angel

Soul love... well this love won't let me go
So long... Angel of Harlem

Birdland on fifty-three
The street sounds like a symphony
We got John Coltrane and a love supreme
Miles, and she's got to be an angel

Lady Day got diamond eyes
She sees the truth behind the lies, angel

Soul love... and this love won't let me go
So long... Angel of Harlem
Angel of Harlem, yeah

She says it's heart... heart and soul
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah right now

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
Through the side streets and the alleyway
Like a star exploding in the night
Filling up the city with broad daylight
An angel in devil's shoes
Salvation in the blues
You never looked like an angel
Yeah yeah... Angel of Harlem

Angel... Angel of Harlem
Angel... Angel of Harlem
Angel... Angel of Harlem (Alright let's take it)
Angel... Angel of Harlem, yeah
(Alright, that's alright, that's alright now Della) / Angel... Angel of Harlem
