The Angel Opens Her Eyes...pale Blue Colored Eyes

This song really gets to's really emotional. Get a tissue ready:


lightning crashes, a new mother cries
her placenta falls to the floor
the angel opens her eyes
the confusion sets in
before the doctor can even close the door

lightning crashes, an old mother dies
her intentions fall to the floor
the angel closes her eyes
the confusion that was hers
belongs now, to the baby down the hall

oh now feel it comin' back again
like a rollin' thunder chasing the wind
forces pullin' from the center of the earth again
I can feel it.

lightning crashes, a new mother cries
this moment she's been waiting for
the angel opens her eyes
pale blue colored iris,
presents the circle
and puts the glory out to hide, hide

I love Live! This song, for me, represents the continuation of life. There is no death, only the passing of the life force from one altered state to another. Life unto life.

I have always loved this song in fact i still have the CD lol its green with Live on it!! this was the best and this song still makes me think! cause in our family it goes when one is born one dies......

still a good song, remember when that came out, I was in high school. Life ends and a new life begins........
