Social Distortion Angels Wings Lyrics

Last updated: 06/28/2013 11:26:23 PM

You say you’re down on your luck
Hey baby It’s a long, long way up
Hold back now, hold back your fears
You say you’re really down and out
And you feel like there’s no way out now
Let go now let go of your tears some more

How many times have you asked yourself?
Is this the hand of fate now that I’ve been dealt?
You’re so disillusioned this can’t be real
And you can’t stand now the way you feel

I don’t care about what they say
I won’t live or die that way
Tired of figuring out things on my own
Angel’s wings won’t you carry me home?

Chorus:
And when you’re down on your luck
Hey baby It’s a long, long way up
Hold back now, hold back your fears
And when you’re really down and out
And you feel like there’s no way out now
Let go now, let go of your tears some more

Repeat Chorus

I triumphed in the face of adversity
And I became the man I never thought I’d be
And now my biggest challenge, a thing called love
I guess I’m not as tough as I thought I was

I don’t care about what they say
I wanna marry you some day
Gonna wake up, it’s a brand new day
Angel’s wings gonna carry you away
Angel’s wings gonna carry me away
Angel’s wings gonna carry us away

Gonna carry us away
Gonna carry us away
Gonna carry us away

Angel's Wings is a Punk Love Song! | Reviewer: Ernest | 1/11/13

Semestinya musik Punk bisa memberikan nilai2 positif dr diri seseorang kepada pendengarnya seperti apa yg dibuat oleh Social Distortion.. nice Punk Rock ever.. i like it!(from South Sulawesi - Indonesia)

greatness | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/9/10

Mike Ness is awesome. Hes stuck with it for so long and doesn't change for no one. Social D in my opinion is one of the best ROCK bands ever to play, not just punk rock. Every song has meaning to it, every one. And the best part, you can rock out to each one. Live on Social D

love it | Reviewer: Saraaaaa Tejada | 4/4/10

This song is really nice. Both the lyrics and the style of the song fit awesome together. It's a powerful song. SO like the song says " I don't care about what they say.." this song is good as fuck. ;)

cant stop listening | Reviewer: Jeremy Rotten | 1/16/10

Nothin but love | Reviewer: JohnnyMoonshine | 12/19/09

Well said NxVx. Keep in mind that most people who try to dole out overly analytical, convoluted bullshit criticism are nothin but a bunch of whiny pretentious English major dipshits or completely blind to anything that lies past the asthetics of the music in question. To say a song written by someone who puts so much soul into such great music is shit is nothing short of ignorant. Go listen to the radio douchebag. This particular page was obviously put here for people Jo like the song enough to understand the lyrics.no one gives a shot about why you hate the song, asshat.

NxVx | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/19/09

Awesome song, being a punk band doesnt mean you have to ensure your lyrics and songs fit into a specific genre, it means you sing what you want. To say "Hey i just wrote this song but i better not sing it because it people will say it's not punk" goes against punk ideology anyway. Ness is a very thoughtful person who can write very powerful songs. Love Social D

right | Reviewer: salty92 | 4/11/09

social distortion are a fucking brilliant punk band.
if people are gonna be dickheads about it and say that theyre shit n pussys n whatever then thats theyre fairly idiotic choice. but in my opinion when u get a room full of punks like me and stick angels wings on or sick boy or dont take me for granted the room fuckin shakes. im not jokin. a few beers in the black country in the west midlands in the uk and the punks fuckin gather. fair play Social D! keep it comin

other lyrics | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/16/09

so a got a bad bootleg of other lyrics for this song when M. Ness originally. wrote it. It starts "welfare mom drinks her self to sleep, while her children silently weep" however the song distorts half way through the recording. i like the message better than the released version. If anyone knows where the lyrics are or have a better recording of the alternate version it would be appreciated.

really guy? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/16/09

dont get mad at these kids because they dont like social d (aka real music)im sure it comes down to there parents and how they were raised. its really just a vicious cycle....haha but really though these dudes suck,they are plain and simple ignorant. if you dont like this song you dont like music, go play in traffic.

hmm... cry for attention? | Reviewer: Kevin Salas | 7/19/08

sounds to me like the "two people" that quote "hat" this song are the same person, I mean this person gave a bad review right after the last bad one. looks like we've got a severe case of attention-whoritis

Angel's Wings | Reviewer: alley | 4/1/08

those people that just criticized the song...
fucking retards. yaaaah must've known they probably just listen to stupid rap songs that have no meaning at all.
so yah they should go jump off a cliff.

SOCIAL D. | Reviewer: butthead. | 2/13/08

love so much im a younger fan but really love them and getting into all old school punk stuff there so fucking great and this song is my favorite.they were comming to Aus for the Soundwave festival but pulled out.shit aye.love em still.

screw everyone else | Reviewer: Shelley Redden | 1/7/08

Those of you who think this song sucks can go to hell! It's a great song and rocks acustic. Verizon sucks for not having it on v cast to download. Thank you Social D for this song, it was my wedding song and everyone in the joint wanted it played again.

One of the best! | Reviewer: Bruce | 1/4/08

Social D is right up there with the best bands ever, and Angel's Wings is certainly one of their best songs! Incredibly uplifting and encouraging, and Mike Ness has lived it. On the current tour their opening with this song acoustically, and it's brilliant!
