Sarah McLachlan “Angel” – Monday’s Music Moves Me

This week’s theme for Monday’s Moves Me is a movie song.  When I saw that, I knew exactly what song I wanted to share, it gives me major goosebumps every time I hear it.  From the movie , a song simply entitled ‘‘ by :

Here are the lyrics:

Angel 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
Memories 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
The storm keeps on twisting
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 is especially poignant at this time, as my FIL is preparing to leave this world and travel into the arms of angels.  We’re driving to where he’s at in Maryland today to take Princess Nagger to say her goodbyes in case today may be her last chance.  I’m not sure how to explain to a 7-year old about what that all means, but she’s a bright kid and I bet she understands a lot more than I think.

At 88 he’s ready to go, and has chosen to stop all treatment for his Cryoglobulinemia and Lymphoma, which means his days are literally numbered.   I will be a little scarce during this time, but will welcome the chance to ‘escape’ into the blogosphere as time permits.

Enjoy your Monday!

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.
