in the arms of an angel

“In the arms of the angel, fly away from here.                                                                        From this dark, cold hotel room                                                                                                          And the endlessness that you fear.”

Written as “ANGEL” by Sarah McLachlan about the heroin overdose death of Jonathan Melvoin of the SMASHING PUMPKINS

    I’ve always loved this song, but had no idea about the origin. I love it even more now. Thank you.

    This song resonates for so many of us…she wrote it from her own grief, but any of us who have felt grief, or who have felt lost, can relate to it so well. Thanks for sharing it, Larry!
