    Lyrics

    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 beautiful release
    Memory seep 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 line
    And everywhere you turn
    There's 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

    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

      The song is about the Smashing Pumpkins bassist that o.d. on heroin. THAT SIMPLE !!!!

      This song may have been written about musicians on drugs, but in truth, that doesn't matter. What matters is what the song means to you. Everybody has a different idea about what it's meaning is; for example, I believe the song is about a girl who's life is steeped in pain and death, but she meets an angel, and he takes it all away.
      Thats just what I think. The point I am trying to make is that it doesn't matter what it was written about. The drug thing was what the writer was thinking about....the real question is: what do you think? Its up to the individual, and you can make it whatever you want it to be

      I love this song. It's beautiful, just like many of her songs. I especially like the live version she sang with Emmalou Harris.

      I love this song, it's so beautiful and sad and everything all rolled into one.

      I have a question though! I swear I have heard it in a movie or a TV show or something recently, like not yesterday but within the last year or so. Anyone know what i'm talking about? it's driving me nuts! haha.

      Lovely song, definitely a good one!
