Lyrics to Angel Eyes

Lyrics to the song Angel Eyes as recorded by Roxy Music.


Oh angel eyes
Am I deceived
Or did you sigh?
For all I know
You let your love light
Shine on me

Oh angel eyes
You never close
Who's got the time?
I can't wait
Until your love light
Shine on me

(Oh angel eyes)
(It seems to me)
(You fill the skies)
(And far below)
(So let your love light)
(Shine on me) (Rock Version Only)

Oh angel eyes
On the wing and open wide
No matter now
How high the moon shine
Down on me

Angel, angel eyes
Angel, angel eyes
Angel, angel eyes (angel)
Angel, angel eyes (angel)
Angel, (angel)

What Bryan says:

"After a short early career as an album track on our 1978 album Manifesto, Angel Eyes was reborn as a brilliant dance re-mix, anticipating a whole new world of music. It became a big hit as a single and in clubs. It was also the first record we made a specific promo video for."
