SARAH MCLACHLAN


Angel Lyrics

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There's always some reason
To feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day

I need some distraction
Oh beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
Let me be empty
Oh and weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear

You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting
Keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack

It don't make no difference
Escaping one last time
It's easier to believe
In this sweet madness
Oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear

You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

Thank you, Sarah. Thank you to the writers of this song as well. I will read this song this weekend at my brother's grave site as he tried to escape the demon but it held him tight and gave him what you sing about.

I lost my mother and older brother, 25 years apart to suicide. This is what I think they must of felt before pulling the trigger. They gave up and believe it or not, I found comfort in this song.

This is a tribute to Jonathon, the drummer for smashing pumpkins after he overdosed on heroin. It's a song about how musicians turn to heroin to relieve themselves of the pressures of their lives.

So many miss the meaning of this song. It is not beautiful. Drugs and alcohol can not provide the comfort we seek, but only a distraction before we slip further...down.

I thank Sarah for this song because it gives me a higher self esteem. I always feel 'not good enough' and it is ALWAYS 'hard at the end of the day.' But this song helps lift me up and feel 10x better.
