Angel Lyrics

Play "Angel"
on Amazon Music

I call you up
You pick up
You call my bluff
On the card of love
You hold too close
Your hands to your chest
I can’t read your eyes
But I confess
It’s lonely far from you, oh

Even when you’re right by me
It’s only why I wait for...

    i think it means that the girl who 'calls him bluff' doesn't really love him, but he is trying to make her' be his angel'. so to sum it up, he wants the girl to give him a chance.

    in this song dave is relating a card game to the game of love "I call you up" meaning both a term in poker and calling his girl on the phone. "You pick up" meaning both picking up cards and picking up the phone. "You call my bluff" means both bluffing in poker and that he hoped she wouldent pick up the phone. from here on it relates more loosley in my opinion he wasent trying to be exact just give you the general Gist. -Joeg-
