Music Monday: Angel by Poets of the Fall

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

Thoughts and other ramblings

Poets of the Fall is one of my favorite bands. I’ve known them for about 13 years now I think. I still remember when a friend of mine showed me Carnival of Rust. And finally, after so many years, I’m going to see them in April! I’m so goddamn excited by that.

I have quite a few songs I love from them and I use many when I’m writing, and I already babbled about them a lot on this blog too. So suffice to say if you want something unique, check them out. I probably could pick about a dozen songs, but they just released their latest album Ultraviolet about 2 weeks ago. I gave them a quick listen then, but I was distracted with many other things and I only just got around to pay attention. I was about to go to sleep but I was still chatting with a friend when this song came up. It struck a chord in me and then saw the title. Angel.

Now, this has quite a lot of meaning for me. I’m not going into details, because no one wants to die of boredom. Let’s just say, I’m not religious, but I wrote both of my BA (History) and MA (History of Religions) dissertation about angels, the pendant I always wear is a pair of angel wings forming a heart with a star in the middle, and my MCs tend to have something to do with angels. And the friend to whom I was talking to tends to call me angel, although I have to disagree with him there, lol. I had a good friend, angel was in his name (when I first learned about that I thought it was a joke), and in a way he started this obsession of mine with angels. I can’t quite explain. I don’t even believe that they exist, and still, they intrigue me and they are somehow always present in my life in one way or another. I don’t believe in coincidences, so probably there is some kind explanation or reason for this. Who knows?

Lyrics

I’m not looking for words
I’m not running from hurt
I just want you by my side

In this moment in time
Feels I’m crossing a line
I’m not looking to set things right

This tear I cry
Falls like healing rain
Softly soothes my pain
This surrender it feels like I’ll

Kiss the feathers of a hummingbird in flight
Breaking up into a million specks of light
Take the shape of an angel in the night
Carry you to peaceful fields

My home is my skin
And in the world I’ve within
All I have is my love for you

If I conceal my fear
Will I be in the clear
Or am I giving life to phantom pain

Cos it’s playing out
Every note in the score
I surrender once more
But as my tears fall they still

Kiss the feathers of a hummingbird in flight
Breaking up into a million specks of light
Take the shape of an angel in the night
Carry you to peaceful fields

Grant me one wish
Send me one more kiss
On the whispering wind
Like white horses
Running in the fields
Something new begins

This tear I cry
Falls like healing rain
Softly soothes my pain
This surrender it feels like I’ll

Kiss the feathers of a hummingbird in flight
Breaking up into a million specks of light
Take the shape of an angel in the night
Carry you to peaceful fields
In your dreams of peaceful fields
In your dreams of peaceful fields
