"Angel" as written by Mariah Carey, Christopher A. Stewart and James Quenton Wright....
Spend all your time
Waiting for that
Second chance
For a break that
Would make it okay
There's always one reason
To feel not good enough
And it's hard at
The end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh beautiful release
Memory seeps
From my veins
Let me be empty
And weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight
In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark
Cold hotel room
And the endlessness
That you fear
You are pulled
From the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the
Arms of the angel
May you find
Some comfort there

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
There's vultures and

Thieves at your back
And the storm
Keeps on twisting
You keep on
Building the lie
That you make up
For all that you lack
It don't make no difference
Escaping one last time
It's easier to
Believe in this
Sweet madness oh
This glorious sadness
That brings me
To my knees

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark
Cold hotel room
And the endlessness
That you fear
You are pulled
From the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the
Arms of the angel
May you find
Some comfort there
You're in the
Arms of the angel
May you find
Some comfort here

    General Commentyeh... you psycho
    and for the first person, don't you know anything? a band has to get permission from the original artist before the song can be redone. so sarah must have approved of it.
    idiot
    fair enough if you like the original version more; everyone always does, but don't go bitching about the cover song. remember, it was the original artist who sold the rights to the song.
    you people are so hostile...

    General CommentI think it's unfair to say that westlife aren't good at this song...I prefer it to the original. It means a lot to me since it reminds me of a friend who has gone, and so I think that gingerguineepig should realise that people are entitled to their own opinions.

    General Commentsurely you should just be pleased that this song is reaching more people! i've heard both versions, but the reason why bands release covers because they are incredible songs, and deserve to be recycled! this way, younger generations get to here these songs!

    i mean come on, who here has actually listened to barry manilow's version of mandy! i know that i never have, only other people's versions (david boreanaz's was hillarious!), and i'm 18! i love mandy, but it's because of westlife that i know all the words!

    give me westlife any day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    General CommentYeah, that she said above me. One of the more better and matured boybands. And as you you gingerguineepig, your the kind of person who think's a peice of sandpaper is a map of the desert.

    Open your eyes to more than sucking ass

    General CommentHaha. You guys just dont know talent when you hear it.
    Seriously. Westlife are awesome.
    And I like Slayer. =]
    Just grow up. If you don't like the song, don't post your opinion, it just ruins it for small minded people. Let them make up their own damn mind cheers.

    General CommentOh my God!! Such hatred, I can't believe it!! Honest. I know some really cool people that listen to westlife and don't deserve to die because of it.
    why would you say such things? It's just not right.
    Wow...

    General CommentHmm...I think Westlife are alright for a boyband. One of the better ones. But to cover this song was really really wrong.
