I made love with an angel once
She never compared to you
For I know she didn’t love me
She just wanted to see how I’d do
I stayed in the mountains of Mexico
And I lived off of the land
Every morning when I watched the sun rise
I wish I could have held you hand

Tell what the count is
Is it one, two, or three?
Or Have I been down so long
That I can’t even see?

I can still remember mama
With her apron blowing free
Wishing I would be a doctor
But, she left the choice up to me
But, I found the cow
Was my real mother
For she gave me her milk
My own mother never gave me hers
For she thought I was just a joke

Tell me what the count is
Is it seven or is it eight?
Or have I been down so long
That all I can do is hate?

I’ve made love with my mind so long
That now I live for the past
‘Cause I still talk to you in my sleep
And wake up breathing fast
I’ve seen and touched many things
That I’ll never understand
But, now I know I know your heart
And understand your hand

Tell what the count is
Is it nine or is it ten?
Or have I been down so long
That I’ll never get up again
Never, never, never know
