IN THE ARMS OF AN ANGEL Lyrics

in the arms of an angel

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 a 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 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 think that it is also about the hardships of life, but that things always work out in the end - life is never worth giving up on. I also collect angels and one day will see those angels when God comes to take me home or if I get in a place where nothing matters, I'm a sick retarded mental patient I'm told. The lyrics indicate that their departed loved ones are now in a different and happier place where they can eternally rest in the arms of an angel despite the painful end of their lives. An Angel may be heavenly, but Lucifer was also an Angel, and his magic is only used for pure evil and his power, once he has your soul, is unbreakable.

Select Silver in the Certification field. She struggled with lymphodema and she had pulmonary heart disease and congestive heart failure. In the arms of a good Angel being that cared for, warm, safe, happy, beautiful feeling. Drugs are heavily themed in the song and I'm sure she mentions Kurt Cobain as an example who fits with the songs meaning. You see, I'm a former heroin addict. This tells us that there are memories and feelings that the addict just doesn't want to feel and would rather be empty than have those memories or feelings — they would rather feel nothing at all.

In January 2002, a dance remix of the song peaked at number seven in Ireland and number 36 in the United Kingdom. Sarah McLachlan has used an Angel as the analogy for drugs and alcohol to demonstrate this complete contradiction in the initial concept of those drugs and how evil they really are; their frightening and sinister deceit; as well as their power. According to the wonderful world of Wikia which is where this next portion of my post was copied from, this is what Ms. It reminds me of my old dog Rocky. God bless every single beautiful soul. His birthday is tomorrow, and for some reason this song seems to be popping up everywhere I look.

It's not necessary that a work of art make a certain kind of impression on everyone because of the artist's motivation. This song was playing while my mom was talking to the vet when the vet said that Rocky had died of a cancerous tumor in his brain. This is the song McLachlan's fans ask her about the most, and the one many seem to relate to. A person who is in the arms of a good angel will also be a very good person and behave well. I've seen a lot of death in my 18 years, and Ill be damned if this song doesn't in some way remind me of them. I hear this song and all I want to do is sleep.

In The Arms Of An Angel lyrics

in the arms of an angel

The arms of the angel to me is I've given up and I can't live like this anymore and be a burden on my kids and husband. More to the point, Angel is about those people who have so much to give but for whatever reason feel that they can't go on any longer. It preys on children who are wanted from the age of 8 years old all the way to 18. Although if you think about it, it kinda is about suicide. People need to open their eyes and see that these things can happen to you any day like tomorrow.
