The title itself, on first consideration evokes the most beautiful concept. Our own relations to it are more important than the true inspiration, although the stories are fun to read about. He was 17 and had a blood clot in his brain that burst. The side that we pray we will never experience in our lifetime which in reality it will come to pass sooner or later. There is nothing I can do to make it better, and it doesn't always work out in the end, at least, how we would like for it to. According to the wonderful world of Wikia which is where this next portion of my post was copied from, this is what Ms.

Angel (Sarah McLachlan song)

who sings in the arms of an angel

My ex thought this song was about a guardian angel and all that comforting crap the churchies talk about, and when I said I was pretty sure the song was about suicide that just destroyed my ex's enjoyment of this song. All of these things build up inside and you find yourself lying when people ask how you are doing. And that sweet sadness and glorious madness, the Angel says brings the addict to their knees. A cousin of mine made a video with clips and images about our people who had suffered during and after The Secret War in Laos and the way when he plugged this song in the background with an old man who taped his somber voice about how he hasn't ate and had to suffer through the whole day to his father who immigrated to the United States, tears stream down my eyes ok, tears are coming out my eyes right now. We can never forget them, but the Angels are there to see us through. It's a beautiful, bittersweet song.

If you're suicidal and embrace it as being about that, then you relate. And my brother who's a recovering alcoholic. In January 2002, a dance remix of the song peaked at number seven in Ireland and number 36 in the United Kingdom. She was a nurse, so she pulled over to see if she could help. The influence of drugs of alcohol may give you these feelings. What is very sinister about the whole of the chorus is that it swaps from the person talking about themselves in the first verse to the Angel talking as it does for the rest of the song — making us feel that the Angel has ultimate power, it gives us an image of the Angel bringing the addict into their care, persuading them that they are good for the addict, that they are doing this because they want to help the addict, pretending to be good.

They also want to get away from the endlessness that they fear — the endlessness that they will never be able to escape from this hotel room, the endlessness of trying to escape from it, the endlessness of the feelings and memories that won't go away when they are sober. Both phrases have contradictions demonstrating the perverse contradiction in addiction to any drugs or alcohol. I knew people who died after years of drug abuse. 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. To be honest, many people only pick up on the chorus and that is what they fine comforting. I have never found a med that helps.

This video is definitely worth watching and then watching it over and over. And it is that contradiction that the title of the song is alluding to. So to say that this song dredges up strong emotions in me would be a monumental understatement. Thank you to the writer, it is very powerful. God bless every single beautiful soul.

Also this song makes me think of my grandmother who suffered with sickness on and off the last years of her life,and still my grandfather beat her and she never complained,you never saw her cry. I've never done heroin, but I've done plenty of other things to escape. You can make a song that is so beautiful be about anything that you are going through. Spend all your time waiting For that second chance For a break that would make it ok There's always some reason To feel not good enough And it's hard at the end of the day I need some distraction ooh beautiful release Memory seep from my veins Let me be empty and weightless and maybe I'll find some peace tonight Chorus In the arms of the angel Fly away from here From this dark cold hotel room And the endlessness that you feel 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 are 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 Chorus You're in the arms of an angel May you find some comfort here Some comfort here. But being in the arms of the bad angel is an extremely frightening and hopeless thought — selling you soul to the devil, being absolutely powerless over such an evil with no chance of escape.

IN THE ARMS OF THE ANGELS Lyrics

who sings in the arms of an angel

Consisting mostly of covers, the album was recorded over a seven-day period in January 2014. The Angel goes on to say, what many addicts say again and again to themselves, one last time won't make any difference, I'll give up tomorrow. The song has charted in Austria and Switzerland on several occasions, peaking at number 17 in both counties, and it also reached number 57 in Germany in October 2012. Her family played this song at her funeral, and they cry each time they hear it. When I found out what it was about, it made it ten times more powerful. The legacy of this song is so immense that even after 15 years since its release, people still recognize and relate to the track.
