Rilo Kiley, “The Angels Hung Around”

I been had and I been held
With the ghosts at bay
I been oaked and I been doped
And carried away

I been charred and I been scarred
On my own face
But I never thought I’d see you as I did today

Till the angels hung around
Till the angels hung around
Till the angels hung around
As they carried me away

I been clubbed and I been snubbed
By the dogs of LA
And I been burned and I been learned
In the same city

I been whored and I been gored
I been less and I been more
But I never thought I’d see you
As I did today

Till the angels hung around
Till the angels hung around
Till the angels hung around
As they carried me away

You were stuck in the badlands
Acting like a bad bad man
I been photographed and painted up
And I been in love only once

And I feared the best and loved the worst
And insisted that I go first
And watch your eyes as they poured
And I never really loved you more

And I never thought I’d see you
As I did today

Till the angels hung around
Till the angels hung around
Till the angels hung around
As they carried you away

And they put you in the ground
When the angels hung around
And the angels hung around
As they carried me away
