"Angel Song" as written by and Niven/kendall....
Fallen angel ripped and bruised
Think on better days
Life is rude, treats you bad
Tears your wings away
Raise your eyes to star and sky
Believe in fly aways
Take your dreams, your broken schemes
And sweep the past away

Fly lonely angel
Hight above these streets
Fly lonely angel
Far away from mad desire

Hollywood ain't paved with gold
It's just a trick of light
Sunset falls on stars of old
And blinds you with its light
A spiders web of tangled lives
Lays stretched across the hills
From distances it's glistening
Like El Dorado's halls

Fly lonely angel
High above these streets of fire
Fly lonely angel
Far away from mad desire

The dream was light
And fragrant nights
But how were you to know
The streets are hard
They're mean and scared
Where only fools find gold

Fly lonely angel
High above these streets of fire
Fly lonely angel
Far away from mad desire

Fly lonely angel
Spread your wings another way
Fly lonely angel
Find a better way
A better day

    My InterpretationAre you kidding me? Another great song here! Talking about the seductress that is L.A. and how easy it is to get lost in the "mad desire" and "streets of fire". The glamour of the coast is an illusion to the unprepared. The false light of the night will blind you to the reality of what you will lose. Only fools find gold, but what is the cost? So, fly Lonely Angel, if Peace is what you seek, take a different course, find a better way, a better day.
