We were sitting in an empty room
The moonlight was falling
You were holding my hand
When the car pulled up for you

And I could have spent a life with you
But those days were over
You were calling my name when your face faded from view

And wasn't it you who told me
The sun would always chase the day
And wasn't it you who told me

Angels fly
In the air tonight
Saying
Wasn't it just like swimming out on the lake
And stars collide
In the airs alive
And was it just like those promises that you made
On our last night

I remember waking up with you
Days doing nothing
You meant more to me then than I think you ever knew

You were gonna be a doctor, a movie star, a poet at Noble seminar
I hope the world never tore that out of you

'Cause wasn't it you who told me
The sun would always chase the day
And wasn't it you who told me

Angels fly
In the air tonight
Saying
Wasn't it just like swimming out on the lake
And stars collide
In the airs alive
And was it just like those promises that you made

And what ever happened to the things you loved
And the songs we played in the Indian days
Whatever happened to the things you gave away
Like Harold and Maude singing
Like Harold and Maude singing

I was waiting as you drove away
The sunlight was falling
You were riding backwards in the dusty window pane

Angels fly
In the air tonight
Saying
Wasn't it just like swimming out on the lake
And stars collide
In the airs alive
And was it just like those promises that you made
On our last night
On our last night
On our last night……

    for me, i think this song tries to tell us that "love is not enought for two people to be together" ... we gotta give ourselves the feeiling of fullfillment in persuing our dreams and just be happy for the things that happen/came along the process of doing so.. thanks you for taking time reading this tag of mine. thanks all.

    I think it is more like a story.
    Two people who love each other will be seperated because
    of one of the persons career.
    That's what I think
