Intro: C G Am G 
       F G Am G 



C           G                Am    G 
I saw you standing on that bridge 
F                     G               Am             G 
Right then I knew the life that I would like to live 
C           G                Am    G 
Your frizzy hair tangled my mind 
F             G              Am                 G      
Right then I knew that I would love you for all time 
C            G               Am     G   
You ran your hand across the ledge,  
F             G              Am               G   
Right then I felt that all my hunger had been fed 
C             G                   Am   G 
You cracked a smile up towards the sky,  
F             G                  Am              G 
That thought alone will keep me happy for my life 
             F 
But I ask now 
F                                  G               C 
How can angels fly when you're still on the ground? 
F                                  G                        C          
Cause I've been searching my whole life for you to turn my life around 
F                                  G                           C 
And now I don't know what to say because the pain won't go away 
                                       F                        G       C 
And I've been crying since the day that you      took all my good away 


I wish I'd never walked away 
Cause if I knew you'd jump I'd dive into that bay 
And I would have saved you from the cold 
Cause when you took that leap you stole my heart and soul. 
So I ask now 

How can angels fly when you're still on the ground? 
Cause I've been searching my whole life for you to turn my life around 
And now I don't know what to do 'cause I've been standing at your grave 
And I've been crying since the day that you took all my good away 

Your mother said you're up above 
And all you wanted was a man for you to love 
Well I just started breaking down 
Cause the angel I've been searching for 
Has left me on the ground 


And now I'll die alone
