lyrics

I used to be a physician
now, I'm a freak
and they pity me

But part of me laughs
now the outside
matches the inside
secrets I still keep

and nobody knows all the times I have tried just to die
Only something compels me back to life

nobody knows that to fail and survive is the penance
I serve for the love I denied

No I'm not a vampire but I was adored
They called me an angel a lifetime before
I went to the best school and dated the best girl
and threw her away 'cause I wanted the world

Oh you may hate me if you like
for what I dared back in my prime
Nobody stopped me, no one tried
My mirror's a monster I recognize

Used to be a romantic
now I'm a creep
and they flinch from me

But I was a prince in your eyes
for a moment before all the greed and the blood and the spite

And nobody knows how the sorry is told
by a scoundrel alone in the dark getting old
and nobody knows how I scream in the night
as you vanish again and forbid me to find you

Once I was a marvel, yes I was adored
They called me an angel a lifetime before
I went to the best school and dated the best girl
and threw her away 'cause I wanted the world

Oh you may hate me if you like
I'm gutted by a bitter knife
And no one could stop me, nobody tried
My mirror's a monster I recognize

and would you believe I began to pray for a miracle
let me forget the child I lost and the woman who bore the cost

Once I was important, yes I was adored
They called me an angel a lifetime before
But now I'm revolting, a hermit abhorred
you surely would shun me and show me the door

but once I was an angel
I was an angel
I was an angel

I was an angel
I was an angel
I am an angel
no more
