'Whispering Salvation' Lyrics-Joe Hurley
-----------------------------

The road is dark and littered with all kinds of bad intentions
Trudgin through the mud to find asylum or detention
Body soaked with sheets of rain, I badly need a saviour
Or even just a heart of gold, who might grant me a favour

Angel fell, just for me
She's just where I want to be
I have seen the glory
She's whispering salvation

Takes me to her bungalow, sits me by the fireplace
Tell her that I'm running scared, she runs her hands cross my face
A Botticelli angel, but I'm on good behaviour
A soldier rat-a-tats on the door, he wants to see my papers

In he storms, six foot three
He's not where I want to be
Angel smiles, winks at me
She's whispering salvation

Whispers in my good ear
Tells me what I want to hear
Knows just where the coast is clear
Takes my hand, says Never Fear
Sings me all her songs of old,
Italian sonnets, sweetly told
Her breath kills off the winter's cold
Her beauty breaks a curses's hold
Redeption for a noble heart
Goodnight sweet world, I now must part
An angel has just sung to me,
She's whispering salvation
