"A hardcore
Hes not setting out to hurt people
Hes got a lot of love in him
And you know,
for his mother, his brother and his girlfriend
He actually, i think, wants to do the right thing
So its more a question of, will power and self discipline and
circumstances.."

dark angel,
fall from the heavens above
send me an angel to heal my heart
from being in love
and after all of the love [for you]
in my life

but it wasn't good enough for you
I can't take no more tears from my eyes
but it wasn't good enough for you
then I can be an angel,
but it wasn't good enough for you

    General Commenti'm pretty sure it goes "archangel" instead of "dark angel"
    i figured so since the one song is called archangel.

    General Commentfrom an interview in The Wire (page 3 thewire.co.uk/articles/347/)

    "Sometimes I’d be hearing a song … I was worrying, I’d made all these dark tunes, and I played ‘em to my mum, and she didn’t like them. I was going to give up, but she was sweet, telling me, ‘just do a tune, fuck everyone off, don’t worry about it.’ My dog died, and I was totally gutted about that. She was just like, ‘make a tune, cheer up, stay up late, make a cup of tea’. And I rang her mobile twenty minutes later and I’d made that ‘Archangel’ tune, and I was like, ‘I’ve made the tune, the tune you told me to make.’ And I heard this vocal and it doesn't say it but it sounds like ‘archangel’."

    i believe he's talking about Etched Headplate, and then he ended up using the title Archangel for track 2 to make the album more synonymous and themed.

    General Commenti thought this was sampled from amanda perez

    "God send me an angel
    From the heavens above
    Send me an angel to heal my broken heart
    From being in love"

    weird

    General Commentthat is weird.
    The "from being in love" line is exactly the same.
    Perhaps burial sampled amanda perez?
