Beautiful Music: Silence — Sarah McLachlan



Silence……….. 

Give me release 
witness me 
I am outside 
give me peace 

Heaven holds a sense of wonder 
and I wanted to believe 
that I’d get caught up 
when the rage in me subsides 

In this white wave 
I am sinking 
in this silence 
In this white wave 
in this silence 
I believe 

I can’t help this longing 
comfort me 
I can’t hold it all in 
if you won’t let me 

Heaven holds a sense of wonder 
and I wanted to believe 
that I’d get caught up 
when the rage in me subsides 

In this white wave 
I am sinking 
in this silence 
In this white wave 
in this silence 
I believe 

I have seen you
in this white wave you are silent 
you are breathing in this white wave

“Angel” Lyrics:
Spend all your time waiting
for that second chance
for a break that would make it okay
there’s always some reason
to feel not good enough
and it’s hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
oh a beautiful release
memory seeps from my veins
let me be empty
oh and weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the 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 here

So tired of the straight life
and everywhere you turn
there’s vultures and thieves at your back
the storm keeps on twisting
you keep on building the lies
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 the 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 here
you’re in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here
