And all the rest

Oh a man is placed upon the steps and a baby cries
And high above you can hear the church bells start to ring
And as the heaviness, oh the heaviness, the body settles in
Somewhere you can hear a mother sing
Then it's one foot then the other
As you step out onto the road of hope
Step out on the road
How much weight?
How much?
Then it's how long and how far and how many times
Oh before it's too late

Calling all angels
Calling all angels
Walk me through this one
Don't leave me alone
Calling all angels
Calling all angels
We're tryin' and we're hopin'
But we're not sure how

Ah and every day you gaze upon the sunset
With such love and intensity
Why it's ah, it's almost
As if you could only crack the code
Then you'd finally understand
What this all means

Ah but if you could do you think you would
Trade in all
All the pain
And suffering?
Ah but then you'd miss
The beauty of the light upon this earth
And the
And the sweetness of the leaving

Calling all angels
Calling all angels
Walk me through this one
Don't leave me alone
Calling all angels
Calling all angels
We're tryin' and we're hopin'
But we're not sure how

Calling all angels (calling all angels)
Calling all angels (calling all angels)
Walk me through this one
(Walk me through this one)
Don't leave me alone
Calling all angels
Calling all angels
We're tryin' (mm-mm) we're hopin'
We're hurtin' (mm-mm-hm) we're lovin'
We're cryin' (mm-mm) we're callin'
Cause we're not sure how
This goes
