Chaka Khan – Angel lyrics

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
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
Deep inside of me
I'm talking to you 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

    This song means to bring out the best in me that was locked up so long from fear, rejection, mixed emotions of self, self hate and not enough of self love. I now know what is really going on with me and what has stopped me through the inspiration of this song. Just reading the lyrics really shed light for me as a woman and brought more self acceptance as a person. I feel that I can go now and do what I have to do to better myself to get to the highted result of my dreamful success. May it all come true as a singer, writer, author, entrepreneurer, mother, and yes I am a wife. Thank Angel.

    Life has not been very good to her and she has not handled it too well. Because of life's experience and pain she is now afraid to give the love she so desparetly needs. Because of the entanglement of her emotions, because of the pain in her heart still, she is so afraid to even feel what she knows is real. She's trying to talk herself out of her fear so that she can live and love again. Knowing that some of her entanglement she caused herself. She must trust herself, open her eyes while flying, because though it may be cloudy out tonight, the stars are still shinning. She has to learn if you fly high enough you will soon soar above the clouds to the safty of the stars and the moon.
