Lyrics

Katie’s in the corner, all alone
She don’t say much, she prefers to be on her own
Pretty in her ribbons and her bows
But what nobody knows
She keeps well hidden to herself

But all the colours she used to wear
Could fill a room and brighten up the air
Now she’d trade her dresses and her shoes
For something she could use
To make the shame just go away

Michael, ring the Angels bell
The story of a broken child must be one you know too well
But all we suffer here on earth
Surely must be worth
A glorious reward

He told her she must never tell
And she didn’t so I guess he picked his target well
Instead she blamed herself for what he did
But she was just a kid
And it could never be her fault

Michael, ring the Angels bell
The soul of a broken child surely must suit Heaven well
For all we suffer here on earth
Surely must be worth
A glorious reward
