Like a Virgin

"Angel" is the third single off Madonna's second studio album Like a Virgin.

Background

Written by Madonna and Steve Bray, it was one of the first songs developed for the project and, according to Madonna, was inspired by a girl who is saved by an angel, and she falls in love with him.

Composition

The song consists of a three-chord ascending hook, which serves as the verse and chorus. It has vocal harmonies beneath the main chorus and the lyrics repeat the angel-like image of Madonna's savior.

Lyrics

Why am I standing on a cloud
Every time you're around
And my sadness disappears
Every time you are near

You must be an angel
I can see it in your eyes
Full of wonder and surprise
And just now I realize

Ooh, you're an angel
Ooh, you're an angel
Ooh, you're an angel in disguise
I can see it in your eyes

Walking down a crowded avenue
Other faces seem like nothing next to you
And I can't hear the traffic rushing by
Just the pounding of my heart and that's why

You must be an angel
I can see it in your eyes
Full of wonder and surprise
And just now I realize

Ooh, you're an angel
Ooh, you're an angel
Ooh, you're an angel in disguise
I can see it in your eyes

Ooh, you're an angel
Ooh, you're an angel
Ooh, you're an angel in disguise
I can see it in your eyes

You're an angel
You're an angel, baby
You're an angel
You must be an angel

Now I believe that dreams come true
'Cause you came when I wished for you
This just can't be coincidence
The only way that this makes sense is that

Ooh, you're an angel
Ooh, you're an angel
Ooh, you're an angel in disguise
I can see it in your eyes

Ooh, you're an angel
Ooh, you're an angel
Ooh, you're an angel in disguise
I can see it in your eyes

You're an angel
You're an angel, baby
You're an angel
You must be an angel, baby

Clouds just disappear
