In the Arms of an Angel

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
Thereís always one reason
To feel not good enough
And itís hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh beautiful release
Memory seeps from my veins
Let me be empty
And weightless and maybe
Iíll 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
Youíre in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
Thereís vultures and thieves at your back
And the storm keeps on twisting
You keep on building the lie
That you make up for all that you lack
It donít make no difference
Escaping one last time
Itís easier to believe in this sweet madness oh
This glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

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
Youíre in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there
Youíre in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

Sung by Sarah McLachlan
