Angels

By Robbie Williams

I sit and wait
Does an angel contemplate my fate
And do they know
The places where we go
When we're grey and old
'Cause I've been told
That salvation lets their wings unfold

So when I'm lying in my bed
Thoughts running through my head
And I feel that love is dead
I'm loving angels instead

Chorus

And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call she won't forsake me
I'm loving angels instead

When I'm feeling weak
And my pain walks down a one way street
I look above
And I know I'll always be blessed with love
And as the feeling grows
She breathes flesh to my bones
And when love is dead
I'm loving angels instead

Chorus

And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call she won't forsake me
I'm loving angels instead

Repeat chorus

Lesson Plan:

  1. Background Knowledge. flag
  1. Omitted words: FATE, WINGS, FORSAKE. (These are probably the more complex words in the song, at least from my point of view)
  2. British Culture and Society:
  1. Games. By drawings, mimic or definitions students must guess some familiar words. Then, joining the initial letter of each word they will obtain the omitted ones.
  2. Listen to the song for the first time and fill the gaps with the words. Do you know the meaning of them?

    I sit and wait
    Does an angel
    Contemplate my _ _ _ _
    And do they know
    The places where we go
    When we’re grey and old
    Cos I’ve been told
    That salvation lets their _ _ _ _ _ unfold
    So when I’m lying in my bead
    Thoughts running through my head
    And I feel that love is dead
    I’m loving angels instead

    And through it all
    She offers me protection
    A lot of love and affection
    Whether I’m right or wrong
    And down the waterfall
    Wherever it may take me
    I know that life won’t break me
    When I come to call
    She won’t _ _ _ _ _ _ _ me
    I’m loving angels instead

    1. Sing the song aloud with your teacher.
