C             Am G
Waiting on an angel
C               Am  G
One to carry me home
C                Am     G
Hope you come to see me soon
C                     Am  G
Cause I don't want to go alone
  F             G  Am   Am/E
I don't want to go alone,
  F             G  C    C/B  Am G
I don't want to go alone



Now angel won't you come by me
Angel hear my plea
Take my hand lift me up
So that I can fly with thee
So that I can fly with thee

And I'm waiting on an angel
And I know it won't be long
To find myself a resting place
In my angel's arms
In my angel's arms

So speak kind to a stranger
Cause you'll never know
It just might be an angel come
Knockin' at your door
Knockin' at your door

And I'm waiting on an angel
And I know it won't be long
To find myself a resting place
In my angel's arms
In my angel's arms

Waiting on an angel
One to carry me home
Hope you come and see me soon
Cause I don't want to go alone
I don't want to go alone
Don't want to go
I don't want to go alone
