Is the sun in your eyes, easy rider?
Do the flame colored skies light your fire?
We are heavy metal lions, they will never understand
The kind of people you or I am, bow your heads and take your hands

They were angels forever, forever angels
They were angels forever, forever angels

Does the ocean inspire, easy rider?
Do the stars and the wind take you higher?
You are California proud, you are angels of the night
Rock 'n' roll guardians now, the last keepers of the light

They were angels forever, forever angels
They were angels forever, forever angels

Paradise is a hell-colored flame sky
Is it nice to feel free and wild?
Paradise is the game of do or die
I just ride, ride, ride

They were angels forever, forever angels
They were angels forever, forever angels
They were angels forever, forever angels
They were angels forever, forever angels

    My InterpretationI think this song is about all people that lived at the world at any time and their souls that rise into some kind of paradise. It is one of my all time favorites, because it is life-affirming and flowery, while it sympathizes with the death at the same time.

    Song Meaning used to think this was about her and her lover just cruising through life, because I think a lot of Ride while listening to this, as if it was a sequel- the story of one of the men she was with in the music video or something

    But now I'm starting to think she's singing about her idols. She's talked a lot about her famous influences and a lot of them are rock gods, like guns and roses, nirvana, damn I can't even name any others that come to mind right now. But I think in this song she is idolising them

    "Rock and roll guardians, heavy metal lions, they will never understand the kind of people you or I am'
    Is she implying that she understands the pain and criticism they (kurt cobain especially?) Went through, being famous, and that they live on even after death (angels forever)
