"Even Angels Cry" as written by Stephen Daniel Mason, Charlie Lowell, Dan Haseltine and Matt Odmark....
I whisper,"You don't have to worry, we'll survive"
Forced smiles underneath the brittle, frozen light
No proof that you're alive
Cold fingers find the curve below your tired eyes
No comfort in familiar places, not this time
You hold it deep inside

Oh sister, if you wake up in the night
Walls are falling, letting in the light
No need to worry
Baby, even angels cry

No flood warnings, still the waters rise
Flowers through asphalt, Diamonds in the pockets of your eyes
Turn your face and hide
I saw a woman with ribbons in her hair
Old and lonely, so beautiful I had to stop and stare
The well will not run dry

Oh sister, if you wake up in the night
Walls are falling, letting in the light
No need to worry
Baby, even angels cry

Oh sister, if you wake up in the night
Walls are falling, letting in the light
No need to worry
Baby, even angels cry

Cry Sister, if you wake up in the night
Walls are falling, letting in the light
It'll be alright
Baby, even angels cry

Baby, please don't worry
Not tonight

    General CommentI would like to know if anyone can clarify the lyrics to this song? I am very curious as to whether or not it is referring to what I'm thinking it does...

    Is it the struggles and pain that someone goes through in life??? The pain of not knowing whether or not one will live or die - the pain of dealing with death - And through it all - even angels cry??? Did I get that right??? I can't help but wonder.

    I have lost my brother, forgive me for saying this again and again in the threads (and lyrics pages), but this line:

    Oh Sister, if you wake up in the night, walls have fallen letting in the light, no need to worry
    Baby, even angels cry.

    ...makes me think of him looking down on me, letting me know he's with me and that it's okay to cry. Even angels cry. Thanks to anyone who can help me :)

    General Commenthey faith, i think you nailed it in your last line of your post: it's okay to cry.

    i think that as beautiful as this song is, it has a simple message; life is hard but it's ok because it's hard for everyone and it's ok to get down about everything sometimes.

    death and heartache surround us much more than we could ever imagine and life is going to get you down, but thats completely normal. and it's also completely normal to cry about it.

    but i also think that the song is about hope. throughout all this bad stuff we encounter, pleasant things are around us too. When they write, "I saw a woman with ribbons in her hair, old and lonely...so beautiful I had to stop and stare, the well will not run dry," I am reminded that life is still worth living every day because of these simple pleasures. The beauty in simple life will keep you going.

    And remember (even though the song doesn't say it) that although everyone grieves differently, it's okay and usually good when we let people in.

    Faith, I'm truly sorry for your loss - even still, I urge you to love life anyway and live your life to the fullest every day. I'll pray for you.
