Angel Lyrics - Sarah McLachlan

Review The Song (60)

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
memory seeps 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 life
and everywhere you turn
there's vultures and thieves at your back
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

A beautiful song | Reviewer: jessica | 10/24/12

I just herd this three weeks ago and was hooked,i cant get it out of my mind,and i dint no the name of the song,but found it.
I also dint no it was about someone addiction,and died.
But what a beautiful song,and it could mean enything,to enyone.
And i will have it,at my funeral.

Rebirth | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/15/12

We played this song at our wedding...I love how it has multiple meanings to different people. I know it's about drugs, but in these lyrics...we felt rebirth and regeneration. To this is hauntingly beautiful and very appropriate. Still touches our hearts!

sad song for an addict | Reviewer: absofsteel | 2/2/12

This song is lyrically beautiful, and it's sort of appropriate for playing at funerals, but it's a lament for someone who died because he was caught in the arms of an addiction, and eventually overdosed. Les Greenberg had it right.

soothed | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/19/11

Beautifully Sad | Reviewer: Les Greencoat | 6/14/11

It was a hot, mid-June afternoon in 1999, when my sister and I reunited to go to our dying father's side. It was his life-style that was killing him and the events brought mixed emotions. I was sad about his wasteful demise, and angry that his lifestyle never did slow down in a happy escalated to a sudden halt, and now, he was dying. As we drove to the hospital, it was very quiet in the car so I suggested some music. The song that came on was Angel, and it was so moving and powerful. It was as if my timing with wanting the radio on was meant to be, so I could hear that song and not be so bitter about my father's demise. After that song played, the air in the car had changed, and I felt compelled to turn the radio off. As I sat their, the lyrics resonated in my head. I came to understand that the poor man was a victim of himself who didn't find the way out. All he found was an escape but he never found the way out, and now...he was going to die in his lonely state of being. I felt cold and scared. When I arrived at the hospital, I looked at that sad and pitiful man and cried. I vowed to see him through the end, which I did. Although his method of communication was limited, he understood why I was there and when I kissed his check and told him that I was happy that God gave me him for my father, a single tear streamed down his cheek and he closed his eyes. That was the last time I talked to him as he never woke up. But, I understood him better that day and had more respect for his ability to deal with his lifestyle and to have made it that far. God Bless that Man! What a beautiful song...I also believe the lyrics can mean what you want them to mean during your time of need.

the love of my life | Reviewer: peter | 6/5/11

this song means so much to reminds me of one night when i took my girl out and we sat by a bridge.i played it and she hugged me and sung it to me, it was magical! and what hurts the most is that we never did break up, we just got shipped to seperate ends of the world, we still love each other but can't be together because of a lot of issues..i play this all the time to think of her and i cant let go..I've tried but i just cant!

MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER | Reviewer: Kaye | 6/1/11

This beautiful song was played over and over at the funeral home where my 42yr. old daughter died. The words are so her. She had fibro and other medical problems and died in her sleep on March 10, 2011. This song was the first one that came to mind and she is the one who first hunted down the artist for me when i heard it the first time. It now means so much to me..

A song for the heart | Reviewer: Kate | 5/22/11

I think this song is incredible because people can find so many personal meanings to it. The lyrics, melody and Sarah McLachlan's singing make it pierce one's walls and heart. It touches the emotions so deeply. It was getting a lot of air play when my dog died very suddenly and it helped me to grieve her loss. (I have no children so my pets are very important to me). I plan to have this song at my service as I want to let people know they are surrounded by the angels and love, and that I hope they'll be comforted when I'm gone.

I miss my Grandma | Reviewer: kim kuhns | 3/11/11

The very first day my grandma died of cancer that morning. when i listen to it i just brake down and cry because i miss her so very much and i wished she never had cancer to start with. I MISS YOU GRANDMA!!!!!!!!

"My Angel Son" | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/2/10

My son took his life over easter this year (2010) his birhtday is just a few days before xmas,he would have turned 21. this song is the most beautiful song, I had a friend who sings and offered to sing at my sons funeral,and the first song that came to me was "Angel" she did the most awsome job, there wasn't a dry eye. He had so much to live for yet could not see it. It has been 7mths and I miss my angel. Devistated mother.

Song for children and close families | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/17/10

I believe the song means different things to each individual. That's the beauty of interpretation. I made a slide show using photographs of all the chilren in our family. To me all the chilren are in the arms of an angel. All cherrished in their own innocent way and looked after no matter where they may be. 17.06.10

really good | Reviewer: natalie clark | 5/9/10

i have heard in the arm of the angel before but has been perford by westlife and that westlife mite not have song better than this girl but the song is buttiuful and really tearful when it played at an funel.

meaning of angel | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/9/10

My mother was dying of cancer in the hospital & they had her so morphined up, that she felt no pain. Someone said that at that point she was "traveling w/ the angels", a common term to an older generation, and I'm guessing that Sara M. was aware of this syllogism.

'' my baby '' | Reviewer: betty | 2/4/10

i lost my son to drugs almost 2 years ago, this song could have been written for him down to the dark cold hotel room were he died of a methadone over dose.after fighting all his life with drugs and drinking.this song is so true and every one should realy listen to it close.not only with their ears but with their heart.thank you so much for this song.

Double Meaning | Reviewer: Marguerite | 2/2/10

For me, and I'm sure some others, this song has a double meaning. My sister suffered from Bipolar Disorder and Alcoholism. She did not leave the coast of Texas during the warnings of Hurricane Ike. Many do not understand that mental illness and addiction had overtaken her better judgment. When the storm surge of nearly 17 feet came in seventeen hours before the storm made landfall, she apparently tried to leave with her boyfriend and their pets. Their car was found several days after the storm. Nearly a year-and-a-half later, her remains have never been found. As I plan a memorial for her, I don't think I could have found a song more meaningful than Sarah McLachlan's beautiful piece.
