seeing out the angel

background
"You wouldn't really imagine this being on Empires And Dance. It's got a new colour. 'Angel' is amazing, I adore this track." - Steve Hillage.

It was one of the last songs from the set to be developed, and was probably given lyrics at the last minute. Therefore it's not unreasonable to believe an instrumental mix was prepared and shelved; only to be picked up by Ian Caple and subtly remixed as and exclusive B-side for Promised You A Miracle.




lyrics
Voice leading to voices,
Last song that the land sings,
In colourful breathless emotional sea,
Leaving us in this way.

Seeing out the angel,
From the shadow of a day,
That stands alone and crying young.
Singing fascination,
For the twist in anxious days,
That stand alone and crying young.
See out the angels,
For the rescue pools of life,
That stand alone and crying young.

Rescue by the first light,
Receiving us with these tears,
Feeling your gaze in the back of my eyes,
Leaving worlds this way.

In voice leading to voices,
Last song that the land sings,
In colourful breathless emotional sea,
Leaving us this way.

Seeing out the angels,
Singing fascination...
