Dark Angel - Benny Joy

Dark Angel

Benny Joy

(Benny Joy, DEMO, recorded in Nasville 1958)

Dark Angel, Dark Angel, I know you've come for me
I know you've come to claim my soul for all eternity
I just had a vision, deep down in my mind
As I felt that bullet hit my head
But I need just a little more time
Dark Angel, Dark Angel, I need a little more time

For I am still a young man, restless as I can be
I've still got so much to learn, so much to do and see
A woman made a fool of me, but I still love her so
She drove me to this suicide, but I'm just not ready to go
I'm just not ready to go, I'm just not ready to go

Dark Angel, Dark Angel, I know you've come for me
I know you've come to assist my change in personality
My breath is getting shorter now
And day has turned to night
But I'm not ready to leave this world
So please don't take my life
Dark Angel, Dark Angel, please don't take my life

My mind's been so tormented, she treated me so cold
I wanted to possess that woman, heart, body and soul
When I saw her with another man
She made me break down and cry
In a jealous rage I pulled that trigger
But I really don't want to die
I really don't want to die, I really don't want to die

Dark Angel, Dark Angel, I know you've come for me
I can see you standing at the gates of all infinity
But what's this?
I'm regaining consciousness
I'm in a hospital
And they tell me that's it's not the end
Dark Angel, Dark Angel
I wanna thank you
And I'll never shoot myself again
