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

    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.

    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.

    The lyrics to this song made me think of my daughter, troubled little angel. Flyin blind not knowing who to be, inconsistent due to the selfish behaviour by me and her dad. Needy little baby, scared to love and who can blame her? Hiding deep inside, cause yes she will always be tucked away deep in my heart. A heart that has been given away too easily to others to abuse, leading her to fear I had no love left. Hence the line in the song, "Always rearranging the wreckage of her life" (that I constantly caused by bad choices in partners in my life). I love this song and want to dedicate it to my beautiful baby girl, my needy little baby, and so she should be as she needs so much reassurance that she has and forever will be truly loved before anyone else. She finds it hard to trust in my love again, understandable. But as Chaka sings "Don't u know your love can heal?". My troubled little angel I love you and I'm talking to you. So sorry for the hurt I've caused you but I now want you to be free and open up your heart. You are so amazing I love you more than words could ever say my beautiful little angel. x x x x

    I love with my whole soul only to be disappointed over and over. I retreat. Heal. And then love again with sometimes lessons learned, and sometimes not. The little angel within me is needy to love and be loved. I find myself cleaning up the wreckage with full hopes of loving intact. I carry on in time still with an open heart because I must love from my soul and refuse to give up that it exists in raw form. I need it to be returned and have to give it. My love is nurturing and healing. It blesses and it causes me to fly blindly because it drives me. Meeting time and again that people aren't ready to receive soul love because they haven't lavished it on themselves is where the repeated disappointment comes from. I need people to love like I do. Wholly and unconditionally. I give love the way that I need it returned. I have to accept that people can't give what they don't have. I need to spend more time in that healing space so I can open my wings and fly. Again. Wiser. And like the song says, without the desperation flying blindly and inconsistently.

    Forever hopeful,
    Cam
