Send me an Angel lyrics


I occasionally come across lyrics to CB Milton songs on the web. Most have some errors. So I dug out the original lyrics I registered (back in 1992 – yikes!). The song is straightforward Eurodance, and helped to define the sound back in the early nineties. We were extraordinarily lucky to have the soulful voice of CB Milton (now knows by his middle name Clarence Bekker). He added some lyrics, although I can’t remember which bits, which shows that they integrated well into the song as a whole.

Incidentally, the one line most lyric sites get wrong is: “Pride is like a prison and I’m dyin’ here.” If you’re interested in covering the song, just contact me and I’ll send a PDF of the sheet music. If you know of any covers, please let me know!


Send me an Angel

I’m gonna say this right here and right now
I need your help
So, baby, it’s now or never
Set me free, yeah!

Set me free, you got to set me free
Set me free, you got to set me free

When lovers clash when hearts are angry
Nothing can get in their way
Their looks are steel with eyes like razors
No second chances left to play

A question, an answer, a lover, two rivals
So many things I’d like to say
A whisper, a promise, a lover to die for
Pride is like a prison and I’m dyin’ here

Send me an angel and set me free
Send me an angel to set me free
Send me an angel and set me free
Send me an angel to set me free

Would it take so much to say I’m sorry?
Would it break my world in two?
Another chance, a new departure
Can’t find the words to say to you

So take me and break me and make me your lover
No-one else can take your place
Take me and shake me and break down my prison
There is nothing like this hell of mine called pride

Send me an angel and set me free
Send me an angel to set me free

Girl, set me free
Yeah, oho, come on
Oh, oho Ohoho

Oh, won’t you please help me out, girl?
Help me

A question, an answer, a lover, two rivals
So many things I’d like to say
A whisper, a promise, a lover to die for
Pride is like a prison and I’m dyin’ here

Send me an angel and set me free (Oh, yeah, set me free)
Send me an angel to set me free
(You got to set me free, you got to set me free)

Why don’t you set me free, girl?
Why don’t you set me free?
Why don’t you set me free, girl?
Why don’t you set me free, babe?

Yeaheah, oho
And set me free (Oh, yeaheah, you got to set me free)
Yeaheah, oho
And set me free (Oh, it’s now or never)

Send me an angel and set me free (Oh, yeah, set me free)
Send me an angel to set me free
