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

    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!
