Lyrics

Evangeline

Evangeline,
Yeah, before we lose control
You’re gonna try to save my soul
From the forces unseen
Evangeline,
Yeah, I know that there’s a flame
That’s gonna burn me one day
But it’s only when you leave

I know your spotless reputation
And your angel eyes are like a painting in the Sistene
You had me going at the invitation
Yeah, I closed my eyes, I felt your hand
And a spirit coming over me, yeah

Evangeline,
Yeah, before we lose control
You’re gonna try to save my soul
From the forces unseen
Evangeline,
Yeah, I know that there’s a flame
That’s gonna burn me one day
But it’s only when you leave

And every light ray through your stained glass heart
Is reflected like a moonbeam coloring this scene
And I can believe in almost anything when you come to me like a dream
You know what I mean
Oh, Evangeline

You’re looking for a sweet lost soul revival
With a prodigal experiment like me
You want to hear me swear forever on a bible
But I swear that I can see our fate, yeah
Without any prophesy, yeah

Evangeline,
Yeah, before we lose control
You’re gonna try to save my soul
From the forces unseen
Evangeline,
Yeah, I know that there’s a flame
That’s gonna burn me one day
But it’s only when, yeah, it’s only when you leave
Yeah, Evangeline, Evangeline
I’ll believe most anything when you come to me like a dream
Evangeline, oh, Evangeline,
You know I believe in you
Won’t you have some faith in me
