Running Out Of Angels

They say they're running out of angels
They say I'm running out of time
Oh you don't have to be lucky
It is easier than trying, now they're bringing down a
Hammer on anything that sells
I suppose you're a winner
Because they're running out of angels

And all the lies upon the tongues of all the girls upon the rails
Will ruin any man who moved too soon
All except the one who seems to know more than she tells
You know she looks just like an angel
but she sings so out of tune

They say they're running out of angels
They say I'm running out of time
Oh you don't have to be lucky
It is easier than trying, now they're bringing down a
Hammer on anything that sells
I suppose you're a winner
Because they're running out of angels
Oh



Se Esta Perdiendo La Inocencia (Spanish Model) lyrics

Se fué la poca inocencia
Ya es tarde para empezar
No tienes que tener suerte
Pierdes el tiempo tratando de agradar vivímos
Donde murió la candidez

Se fué la poca inocencia
Ya es tarde para empezar
No tienes que tener suerte
Pierdes el tiempo tratando de agradar vivímos
Donde murió la candidez
Vencedor vencido porque
Se está perdiendo la inocencia.

Y la impostura de las chicas coqueteando en el balcón
Arruinarían tipos como tú
Todos menos ése que en el fonod sabe bien
Que aunque parezcan ser un ángel tienen otro interés.

Se fué la poca inocencia
Ya es tarde para empezar
No tienes que tener suerte
Pierdes el tiempo tratando de agradar vivímos
Donde murió la candidez
Vencedor vencido porque
Se está perdiendo la inocencia.
