Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Is the sun in your eyes, easy rider?
Do the flame colored skies light your fire?

We are heavy metal lions
They will never understand
The kind of people you or I am
Bow your heads and take your hands

They were angels forever, forever angels
They were angels forever, forever angels

Does the ocean inspire, easy rider?
Do the stars and the wind take you higher?

You are California proud
You are angels of the night
Rock and roll guardians now
The last keepers of the light

They were angels forever, forever angels
They were angels forever, forever angels

Paradise is a love-colored flame sky
Is it nice to feel free and wild?
Paradise is a game of do or die
I just ride, ride

They were angels forever, forever angels
They were angels forever, forever angels

They were angels forever, forever angels
They were angels forever, forever angels
