Lyrics:

Spoiler

I confess I am lost
In the age of the social
On our knees, take a test
To be lovin' and grateful

Shots were fired on the street
By the church where we used to meet
Angel down, angel down
But the people just stood around

I'm a believer, it's a trial
Foolish and weaker, oh, oh, oh
I'd rather save an angel down
I'm a believer, it's chaos
Where are our leaders? Oh, oh, oh
I'd rather save an angel down

Doesn't everyone belong
In the arms of the sacred
Why do we pretend we're wrong?
Has our young courage faded?

Shots were fired on the street
By the church where we used to meet
Angel down, angel down
Why do people just stand around?

I'm a believer, it's a trial
Foolish and weaker, oh, oh, oh
I'd rather save an angel down
I'm a believer, it's chaos
Where are our leaders? Oh, oh, oh
I'd rather save an angel down

I'm a believer, it's a trial
Foolish and weaker, oh, oh, oh
I'd rather save an angel down
I'm a believer, it's chaos
Where are our leaders? Oh, oh, oh
I'd rather save an angel down

Save that angel
Hear that angel
Catch my angel
Save that angel
Hear that angel
Catch my angel
Hear that angel
Hear that angel
Catch my angel
Save that angel
Hear that angel
Catch my angel
Hear that angel
Catch my angel

Truly one of her best songs on Joanné, I love it so much

Perfect use of her voice and it's so different for Gaga. I love this gentle sound from her.

The ending sounds like a track from King of Limbs by Radiohead and I love it! Gaga would have never included that ending bit on past records because its not "commercial" but I feel like it adds a certain feeling to the song.

I'm actually not as high on this as everybody else seems to be. The chorus melody is undeniable, but the production doesn't do it any favors, and the lyrics are too on-the-nose. Her "woe is the world" shtick works better on Come to Mama because that song keeps it cheeky, but here there's a self-seriousness that I find a little stifling.

Well that's because a bad producer made it

Ronson obvoiusly made the best he could with the limited amount of talent he has

Don't worry the work tape version will be even better
