Conley, Earl Thomas - Angel In Disguise Lyrics

You were just another pretty face in the crowd
I was just hangin' out
I wasn't ready for love when I looked in your eyes
You took me by surprise
You weren't supposed to say that you loved me
You were just gonna stay for the night
I never held a hand that could touch me
And leave me with stars in my eyes

Oh angel in disguise
You're just an angel in disguise

Almost made it too easy for me to believe
That love could happen to me
But you're not afraid to show me how much you care
And prove your heart is there
You weren't supposed to say that you loved me
You were just gonna spend the night
I never held a hand that could touch me
And leave me with stars in my eyes

Oh angel in disguise
You're just an angel in disguise

Conley, Earl Thomas Angel In Disguise Comments
  1. Kelly Moyer

    One of my ten favorite male country singers and my favorite song by Earl Thomas Conley. So very sad he has passed. I have all of his albums and Cds and have seen him in concert in 1983 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and he was excellent. I sing and play guitar and have performed a few gigs and at a county fair free stage for a few years and have played another one of his number one hits and that's Love Out Loud. I was sad and heartbroken when he passed away, but this country legend's music will live on forever and I will always play and listen to his music. Rest in peace my friend you will never ever be forgotten. One of your biggest fan, Kelly Moyer.🎸🎵

    I was a country DJ in the 80s and ETC was a huge success. 80s country was the greatest. So many great artists: Alabama, Steve Wariner, Ronnie Milshap, Don Williams, Oak Ridge Boys, Conway, Barbara Mandrell, Kenny Rogers, Charley McClain, and on & on!
