Last night I leveled with the angels they were everywhere and there was nothing I could do and it wasn’t their call.
We entered the house greeted by a stranger who would soon replace ours.

And right away I knew I was entering into a place of uncertainty and disdain.

Why is father on the phone? Did he notice her withering hand or is it something she said? Up this flight of stairs how dare I enter this room and this house.

I descend into a room down the hall my hands are shaking and I must reason with the angels.

They will understand; they will see the tears, tell everyone I can make them let her go…she’s in heaven now; this house couldn’t work as a cage for an angel.

Now it’s me I’ve got to let go.

    General CommentI agree with all of you.

    And they totally need more hype. Put a music video on MTV or something. People watch MTV, right? :)

    General CommentI agree w/ the person who said the song gave them images, it did that for me too. It's about loss and letting go. Such a beautiful song, my favorite of theirs. I like so many of the lyrics, but my favorite part is when he says "now it's me, I've got to let go."

    General CommentJust stay in my arms

    [Verse 1]

    Last night I leveled with the angels
    They were everywhere
    And there was nothing I could do
    It wasn't their call
    We entered the house greeted
    By a stranger who would soon replace ours

    [Pre-chorus]

    And right away I knew I was entering
    Into a place of uncertainty and disdain

    [Chorus]

    Why is father
    On the phone did he notice
    Her withering hand or is it something she said
    Up this flight of stairs how we dare
    I enter this room and this house

    [Verse 2]

    I descend into a room down the hall
    My hands are shaking I must reason with the angels
    They will understand
    They will see the tears
    Tell everyone I can make them let her go

    [Pre-chorus]

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge]

    Crying out
    She's in Heaven now
    And this house couldn't work as a cage for an angel
    Now it's me I've got to let go

    General Commentcan someone help me figure out what exactly the Chorus is supposed to mean

    Why is father
    On the phone did he notice
    Her withering hand or is it something she said
    Up this flight of stairs how we dare
    I enter this room and this house

    I don't really get this part.
