Song Lyric Sunday 4/29/18 – Angel (Fleetwood Mac 1979)

Song Lyric Sunday is upon us once again and this time the theme is angel. This is somewhat of an appropriate topic for my situation this week as yesterday we committed my dear friend’s soul back to the universe in a rather moving memorial service. Somehow I managed to play a few tunes on the pipes while tears gushed out of my eyes. I don’t know how I did it but I did.

Though this song doesn’t have much to do with that, the one-word title does match the challenge. Here then is the song “Angel,” a 1979 song by the group Fleetwood Mac and one of two songs by the same title by the same band (I don’t much care for the first one admittedly). Anyway, this song was on the album Tusk and was written by Stevie Nicks.

Sometimes the most beautiful things
The most innocent things
And many of those dreams pass us by
Keep passing me by

You feel good
I said it’s funny that you understood
I knew you would
When you were good
You were very, very good

So I close my eyes softly
Till I become that part of the wind
That we all long for sometime
Yeah

And to those that I love
Like a ghost through a fog
Like a charmed hour and a haunted song
And the angel of my dreams
Angel of my dreams

(You said) you feel good
I said it’s funny that you understood
I knew you would
When you were good, baby
Mmm, you were very good

I still look up
When you walk in the room
I’ve the same wide eyes
Now they tell a story

I try not to reach out
When you turn around
You say hello
And we both pretend
No great pretender

So I close my eyes softly
Till I become that part of the wind
That we all long for sometime

And to those that I love
Like a ghost through a fog
Like a charmed hour and a haunted song
And the angel
Angel of my dreams

Angel of my dreams

I still look up

I try hard not to look up
Ooh, yeah

That girl was me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Track a ghost through the fog
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

A charmed hour and a haunted song

Track a ghost through the fog, baby

Ooh, you try hard
But you’ll never catch me
Yeah

  1. I love Stevie’s voice as well. It makes me wonder why I never really listened to Fleetwood Mac. I think I love every song I hear. I suppose it’s time to check them out a bit more. Thanks for sharing!!

    Also, once again, I’m so sorry about your friend. Hang in there… ❤
