Dreaming of coffee with cream and a basket of bread
Appearing in linen and silver at the foot of my bed
Cathedral bells ring in the morning in counterpoint peal
Remind me I'm no longer dreaming, this is for real

Angelico
Likes me because and loves me although
Angelico
Paint me a beautiful fresco, Angelico

Tasty delights served up in a beautiful bowl
I gobble them down to fill up the hole in my soul
Angelico always brings more but how could he know
The bottomless well of my heart and how deep it can go

Now I'm soft like the pillows I lie on in feathers and silk
Like a cat fed on Devonshire cream yet still cries for milk
I want you around all the time, except when I don't
Promise to love you I will, except when I won't

Like rock roses growing in sand in the back of the yard
I learned early on to believe love must be hard
Everything comes at a price and love always stings
Dangling shiny and tempting and tangled in strings

Angelico
Likes me because and loves me although
Angelico
Paint me a beautiful fresco, Angelico

Rust-colored vineyards in valleys of lavender hills
Hearing the sea in the distance if I'm very still
Silver wings lifting me up to where I can breathe
Glimpses of hope all around and a chance to believe

Angelico
Likes me because and loves me although
Angelico
Paint me a beautiful fresco, Angelico
Paint me a beautiful fresco, Angelico
