"Hope for an Angel" as written by and Simon Neil....
I believe
In the human need
To believe there's hope for an angel

One has gone
For he had to come
In the sky there's space for an angel

Overhead
If you look real hard
You will see there's millions of angels

One has gone
For he had to come
In the sky there's space for an angel

    General CommentThis song is fantastic, I've seen them play it live twice and its like everyone drops thier drinks and are surprised when the distortion kicks in. Its a great song to play on the guitar aswell. Also the lyrics missed here after the overhead lyrics: 'the love of one that your strength is from in the sky there's space for an angel' Also they shout "Wheres... hope"

    General CommentI love how this makes me jump every time i hear it.
    This song is so torturingly beautiful. It makes me want to cry 'cause it's so good.
    It seems to me it's about death and what the afterlife holds...
    Maybe they don't believe in anything. They believe it's just "human need" to believe there is something else. The "millions of angels" are friends and relatives who have gone before. But nobody wants to think the people they've loved so much are just gone so they hope that they are angels.
