Song Lyric Sunday. Angel

This week’s song lyrics based on the word Angel.

There are so many songs about angels , fallen, special and even Cupid. But my favourite is Angel by Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart, it was the last song they did together as the Eurythmics before a break of a decade when they went their separate ways. It is a very special song for me.

Lyrics for Angel from A to Z Lyrics
Underneath this canopy of snow
Where fifty-seven winters
Took their toll
Where did you go?
And I believed in you
I believed in you
Like Elvis Presley
Singing psalms on a Sunday
Where did you go?
Well she’s gone to meet
Her maker
Back to where she came from
Come to save her soul…
Come to save her soul…
Come to take her home
‘Cause it’s late and past
Your bedtime
Well past bedtime
Angel
My angel
Fly over me
Angel…
She took her life
Within her hands
She took her life
Within her own two hands
And no one can tell her
What to do now
And I believed in you
I believed in you
Like Elvis Presley
Singin’ live from Las Vegas
Where did you go?
Well she’s gone to meet
Her maker
Back to where she came from
Come to save her soul…

********************

We all know people who died too young weather by illness of the body, soul or mind and these lyrics portray this perfectly.

Another song about Angels by Annie Lennox is Precious she wrote this about loosing her first born daughter. Anyone who has lost a child, or not will understand the lyrics to this song too.

Precious”

Precious little angel
Take a look at what you’ve done
Well I thought my time was over
But it’s only just begun
Precious little angel
You’re my own sweet turtle dove
Won’t you stay with us for ever
In a bundle full of love

I was lost until you came

Precious little angel
Won’t you spread your light on me
I was locked up in the darkness
Now you’ve come to set me free
I was covered up with sadness
I was drowned in my own tears
I’ve been cynical and twisted
I’ve been bitter all these years

I was lost until you came
I was lost until you came

And wouldn’t I run a thousand miles
To be with you
And wouldn’t I run a thousand miles
To be with you

Precious little angel
Tell me how can it be true
That such a gift from heaven
Has been sent for me and you
Precious little angel
Don’t you worry don’t you cry
When this bad old world has crumbled
I’ll be standing at your side

I was lost until you came
