"Angel" as written by Mariah Carey, Christopher A. Stewart and James Quenton Wright....
I believed that love was sacred
As I dove blindly into her sea
You see, that warm embrace felt more like drowning
As endless waves crashed down on me

She was an insatiable black hole
Feeding off my mind and off my soul
I find love humilating
A sick and desperate need that drives me
God I hope I never feel again

(CHORUS)
But I've never been loved by an angel
I've never felt anything so pure
I've never been loved by an angel
Until tonight your heaven filled my room

She showed that love could lift me higher
With a kiss she repaired these broken wings
She revived my fading spirit
Restored my faith in everything

I have never felt I had a home
Even in a crowd I felt alone
I'd almost given up on life
I believed it's all a lie
And never thought I'd feel again

(CHORUS)
But I've never been loved by an angel
I've never felt anything so pure
I've never been loved by an angel
Until tonight when your heaven filled my room

I believed in nothing
But you believe in me
I thought that life was worthless
But you told me I'm a star

(CHORUS)
But I've never been loved by an angel
I've never felt anything so pure
I've never been loved by an angel
Until tonight your heaven filled my room

    General CommentGod this song reminds me so much of my boyfriend. He's done so much for me, gave me hope, something worth living for, and shown me that love doesn't always hurt. Think Stabbing Westward got it one with this song. I love it

    General Commentmy interpretation of the song is of that one love that hardly every comes around and is so pure, real, and so rare. That one love that makes you feel like you can do anything, or be anything, personally i wish i had that =P

    General Commenti love this song.. its one of my faves.. i have many faves of stabbing westward.. i love them.. i have all their cds.. im like obsessed.. lol.. anywayz.. what the song means to me is you think you've lost all hope of everything.. then this one person comes in and changes everything.. cuz he/she is so unlike anyone else that they gave you hope, reason, love, everything.. and once you have that.. you feel so real and free..

    General CommentAt first i dismissed this song since i wasnt so keen on the music of it. I prefer SW's harder songs. When i listened to it..i almost cried.

    I got burned in love...very badly...and was jaded and depressed.

    Now I have the most wonderfull girl loving me. The sun does shine occasionally :)

    General CommentI think all Stabbing Westward fans are Stabbing Westward fans because we can all relate to Chris Hall's lyrics. Almost every single song is touching in some way. Granted, there are a few that we just wanna rock out to, but then you have songs like this and others on the last cd that make you feel something deep down. I personally love Angel and all the SW songs. WHY DID THEY HAFTA BREAK UP!?
