Angel In Blue Lyrics By The J Geils Band

    we met in a bar
    out on chesapeake bay
    with her white patent boots
    and her blouse red lame
    a table top dancer
    she would smile on cue
    those lips of an angel
    angel in blue

    she’s been dancing for ages
    though cities of bars
    she was kickin’ the habit
    of scoring in cars
    she’d been drained of her spirit
    all caged in this zoo
    a wildcat angel
    angel in blue

    and as she stared out into nowhere
    i thought yes i thought she might break down and cry
    when i whispered i thought i could love her
    she just said baby don’t even bother to try

    and i watched as she spoke
    her words chilled my bones
    all her friends did her favors
    that were really just loans
    and she never had dreams
    so they never came true
    the palest of angels
    angel in blue

    and the bees they had stung her
    the birds they had flown
    there were guys she could number
    but none she had known
    and she never had dreams
    so they never came true
    my fade away angel
    angel in blue
