The Monarchs – Look Homeward Angel lyrics
(Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh)

Look homeward, angel
Tell me what you see.
Do the folks I used to know remember me?

Look homeward, angel
Find my lady fair.
Does she dream about the love we used to share?
So she'll know how very much I miss her.
Angel, while she's dreaming, won't you kiss her?

Look homeward, angel
One thing I must know.
Do her empty arms still yearn for me alone?

So she'll know how very much I miss her.
Angel, while she's dreaming, won't you kiss her?

Look homeward, angel
One thing I must know
Do her empty arms still yearn for me alone?

Do her empty arms still yearn for me alone

    The singer is asking the angel to look homeward. Do the folks I used to know still remember me” Does his lady miss and dream of him. He must be deceased and asking the angels to check on his loved ones hoping they still love and miss him. That seems to be the logical reason behind the song since we all want to be remembered, missed and loved when we are gone.

    Chris, the military separation explanation is a good one but I prefer an alternative that the lyrics are those of a lover asking an "angel" in heaven to "look homeward" and intercede in communicating with his deceased lover in the afterlife - even asking the angel to give that person a kiss for him. One of the saddest and most beautiful songs ever written. I love the Johnny Ray version of it. It will break your heart!

    "Look Homeward Angel" is about A military person trying to get information from home. Prior to the tech age the deployed military had to communicate with their mind, heart and soul.
    The mail delivery was the most important activity of the day. The mail brought all the news from home, and the song comforted the military man as well as those it was shared with.
