Song Lyric Sunday – Angel by Sarah McLachlan

I think there are many different ways to lose the one you love, but the one I’ve been fearing lately (and I don’t mean to be macabre) is that I won’t have as much time as I want with my soon to be husband.  We’ve both been struggling health-wise since we moved into our new house, and it makes me grateful for each new day  I get to spend with him.

If I ever do lose him, I imagine this song is how it would be.  I hope he visits me each night to bring some sort of comfort to my life.  As it stands now, I can’t imagine being without him, especially since I really feel like he was my second (third, fourth or fifth?) chance for happiness in love.  I’m truly blessed to be his partner in this thing called life and I couldn’t have asked for more.

Thank you for loving me baby and for making each new day brighter than the next.  You are truly my angel, even now.

Lyrics found at AZ 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
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
and the storm keeps on twisting
you 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

    • I HATE those commercials. I have to either mute them or turn the channel. It’s not that I don’t have empathy, but I don’t feel the need to tear at the heartstrings like that. I love this song so much that I didn’t even think of the commercials. I suppose that’s a good thing. 😉

  1. I love this song so much and of course anything that Sarah sings. I still feel she should have sung the theme song on the Titanic and not Celine Dion…it was just so Sarah’s style. As usual I went through so many songs and videos and cried and cried but end up going back to my first choice without even looking for the video. I just know this song helped me. Will post it now at Tracesofthesoul.
