Find Comfort in the Arms of an Angel

I want to share one of the most comforting and peaceful songs I’ve ever heard by  Sarah McLachlan. So sit back, relax, close your eyes, and listen to the voice of an Angel singing…

Here are the lyrics…

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

You’re in the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here

  1. I love this song, Larry, “In The Arms of an Angel”. You’re right, in that’s it’s comforting and peaceful. Soothes our soul to stop and listen breathing in the love expressed in this song. I used this song in a story I wrote back in 2012 on the Colorado theater shootings called “Calling All Angels”. In the version I used she sang it with Josh Groban.

    There’s another song, along these same lines, that I used for the title of that story that was sung in the film “Pay It Forward”. I’d like to share with you, if I may. It’s called “Calling All Angels” by Jane Siberry and KD Lang at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRUErh47sao.

    Thank you for sharing this lovely song and for the reminder of the sweetness that is available to us today and everyday. Happy New Year to you and your family. 🙂
