Troubled little angel
Inconsistent... flying blind most of the time
Drama queen

Preening and untanglin'
Feathers in her wings
Captured by her dreams
Desperately she sings

Needy little baby
Open up your heart
Don't you be afraid to feel
Needy little baby
Hidin' deep inside
Don't you know your love can heal

Troubled little angel
Inconsistent
Flying blind most of the time
Don't know who to be [yeah]
Always rearranging the wreckage of her life
Ever holding tight to the hope that she'll be free

Needy little baby
Open up your eyes
Don't you be afraid to feel
Needy little baby
Hidin' deep inside
Don't you know your love can heal

I'm talking to you angel
Angel
Deep inside of me
I'm talking to you angel
Angel
One day you'll be free

Angel [Angel]
Angel [Angel]
Deep inside of me [inside... inside]
Talking to you angel [Angel]
Angle [Angel]
You'll be free

    The meaning of this song: angel is about love. Like an angel with tangled wings. Love deep within the heart bearing on to pain that it should let go, because that is what is holding it back from spreading its wings and flying.

    Self love,tolorance,mistakes,doubt exists in all of us which wrecks our emotions. We've all been given wings,inspite of all, we can free ourselves thru determination and untangle our feathers and fly!

    Chaka is speaking of the little girl that lives within every woman. It's the spirit of our inner child afraid to feel, afraid to be who she really is, our inner child is longing to be free so the woman would be free. It doesnt matter what your age 20, 30, 50,60 until she is free angel can't be all that she was meant to be and fully be ?woman.
