Laurie Anderson Strange Angels Lyrics

They say that heaven is like TV A perfect little world that doesn't really need you And everything there is made of light And the days keep going by Here they come Here they come Here they come. Well it was one of those days larger than life When your friends came to dinner and they stayed the night And then they cleaned out the refrigerator - They ate everything in sight And then they stayed up in the living room And they cried all night Strange angels - singing just for me Old stories - they're haunting me This is nothing like I thought it would be. Well I was out in my four door with the top down. And I looked up and there they were: Millions of tiny teardrops just sort of hanging there And I didn't know whether to laugh or cry And I said to myself: What next big sky? Strange angels - singing just for me Their spare change falls on top of me Rain falling Falling all over me All over me Strange angels - singing just for me Old Stories - they're haunting me Big changes are coming Here they come Here they com

A beautiful song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/20/2007

We played this song before our infant daughter's funeral. As odd as that may sound, we thought it summed up a lot of our feelings. "This is nothing like we thought it would be." Laurie Anderson has long been a favorite, and my husband and I saw her perform many times, most notably during her Strange Angels tour. It was beautiful, funny, charming and moving. All reasons we chose two songs from Strange Angels for the time before the funeral.

This is a great song first time I heard it was during the viewing of "The Doctor" starring William Hurt. It was the music in the background during the stopt they made on the way to see an indian dance corp. The woman in the movie was dying from a brain tumor and one of the things she did to keep her spirits up was to dance and she and William Hurt danced to this incredible song in the desert. Fabulous visualization to go along with a fabulous song.
