lyrics

I saw Jesus with my Angel
Walking down Decatur Street
I saw a woman who once loved me
I hang my head in defeat

I thought I was wise but what did I know
I thought I was right but I had no reason

Go away I scream in fear
I can’t let go! That moment of regret
You followed me here from another year
I stand in line with those who drink to forget

I pray to your picture I keep in my pocket
Your standing afar sun shining on your face

I saw Jesus with my Angel
Walking down Decatur Street
I saw Jesus with my Angel
Walking down Decatur Street

I know a boy who became a man
Beat and battered for his life he pled
She was judge and jury the trial began
Man and wife by the verdict, I do, she said

I see my face in the bottom of a glass
Wink back at me as I throw it in the trash
I see your eyes in headlights that I pass
Driving me back to doorsteps from my past

Don’t go, don’t stop, don’t give in
Love is the way we wash away our sins

Thank you for the days that you gave to me
Thank you for the nights and the mornings too
I lost your trust that I see
I’m sorry for the time I took from you

So now you’re out with brand new friends
And a man with a beard, long hair, and a smile

I saw Jesus with my Angel
Walking down Decatur Street
I saw a woman who once loved me
I hang my head in defeat

I know a boy who became a man
Beat and battered for his life he pled
She was judge and jury the trial began
Man and wife by the verdict, I do, she said

I saw Jesus with my Angel
