Lyrics

It's later than I thought it was
The shadows long and lost
Circle through the room

Swear as I met your mother there
In new orleans
The sun was slipping into blue

The longest day is over
The longest day
My alphabet angels come out to play
Yeah

Maybe the "Alphabet Angels" are related to those the Kabbalah (jewish mysticism) speak of?
