"Angel" as written by and Tanya Donelly....
Give it to me, please
I said to god.
It's only fair.
Instead, he sent three angels
To move the river,
So now it flows by my house,
So now it goes by my house.
Angel
Angel
I'd still rather have the man.
I've had bad dreams,
So bad I threw my pillow away.
Move the river,
So now it flows by my house,
So now it goes by my house.
Angel
Angel
I'd still rather have the man.

    General CommentI love the line "bad dreams / so bad I threw my pillow away"!

    This has been one of my favorite songs for years. Heart-breakingly sad but it's impossible to pin it down -- images from a dream.

    I thought the words were "I'd still rather have them here."

    General CommentTanya has several songs about things she'd dreamed (ie. moonbeam monkey was one I;m sure of)
