An angel came to me
when I was in despair
Light shined from her eyes
as she floated in midair

She said that in the future
after I am dead
People will listen my songs
and the things that I said

Like love is real
But not today
Love is real
But not today

Today you will be hungry
Today you’ll be alone
today you will wander
looking a home

And you’ll wonder
If your life means anything at all
Watching shadows slide along the wall

When the angel was finished
she faded away
I thought I’d finally gone insane
as the curtain swayed

And the night gave way
To the sun’s first rays
just like love is real
But not today
Like love is real
But not today
Love is real
But not today


from Country's What I Sing to Keep from Crying, track released December 21, 2018
