In The Arms of The Angel


Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
For the break that will 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, oh beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
They may be empty and weightless, and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

In the arms of an 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 an 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
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 an Angel, far 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
In the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here

Thank you for depressing the heck out of me :)

Sorry Wassim, the song has been crossing my way for the past few days so I was obliged!

it\'s comforting to know (selfishly) that i\'m not alone down at the pit.
The Eid is coming though and a mood swing is in order. You\'ll snap out of it.

God knows none of you is in this pit alone..
Unlike Abu Fares, I do not feel so optomistic about 'snapping out of it' as Eid arrives...
Anyway, it is a beautifully sad song that I loved listening to over and over again..
And don't you just love Meg Ryan!.. I am sure the word 'cute' was simply invented to describe her...

This is so my song. I had been wanting to put it on my blog :) I have been waiting for the right time. I used to listen to this song almost everyday. I haven't in almost two months. I guess I am scared. I will when I am ready.
