What's Playing in My Head Now

Angel by Sarah McLachlan

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

Finding that second chance in life, finding that opportunity to break free from form is what everyone's quest is. Human nature to always want more and more. But the more we take on, the more we tire. It is an insane world sometimes. We push ourselves so much that we lose sight of what's important.

And then the wheel comes to a grind. The carnival comes to a halt. You find yourself lost in the reverie. You have lived a lie. A big fat lie.

Will there be an angel to comfort you? Will you walk and fly into life again? Can you move on?

Can you find yourself, in this madness?

This post struck me deeply. Thank you for writing it.

The song by Sarah Maclachlan have always been a favourite.

I think it's time to take a step back. For once, it was okay to be the one on the outside looking in.
