"Angel" as written by and Jill/glaser Cunniff....
Let the night be gone
Let it go without a sound
I have seen you twice before
Nothing by chance you said
 
I've heard it can be seen
In the places in between
Where the meek are said to seem
To be a part of it
 
You said everyone cries
You said everyone flies
And the joy I keep bound
Like a secret I hide
From the spirits that move
In the time that I bide
But it hurts sometimes
 
Float me past the night
Show me all the currents right
Leaning on a subtle light
That brings one back again
 
You said everyone cries
You said everyone flies
And the joy I keep bound
Like a secret I hide
From the spirits that move
In the time that I bide
But it hurts sometimes
 
When I dream it's never dark
When the moon is swirling through my head
Do you come to watch me too
Do you think of me as a part of you
Heart of you, start of you
 
Will this last that long
Though I know it can't be wrong
You repeat you're not that strong
But that's what angels do
 
You said everyone cries
You said everyone flies
And the joy I keep bound
Like a secret I hide
From the spirits that move
In the time that I bide
 
Did you know you could fly
When you opened your eyes
Does a miracle start
Even though no one tries
After all of this time
After all it's just fine
But it hurts sometimes

    General CommentFrom greyeyeglances.com:
    "'Angel' is one of the all time favorite GEG songs. A live show rarely passes without it being played. It is based on the movie 'Wings of Desire' which was later remade as 'City of Angels.'"

    Though framed in a supernatural theme, Angel is essentially about loving from afar. For whatever reason, the singer feels the need to keep her distance from her loved one, and so she has to be content with being his friend. This song expresses the mingled joy and pain of being close to him, but not as close as she'd like to be.
