This is a song reminiscent of when I was in college! And even to this day, I still like to listen to it.
It’s called Heaven Knows (This Angel Has Flown) by Orange and Lemons.
Orange and Lemons have disbanded already but I was a fan when they were hitting the airwaves in the Philippines. I loved their style as they were not like the common popular bands at that time. Their music had the influence of Beatles and the bands from the 60’s. The first time I heard their song made me think twice if they were Filipino or not!! I think that’s why I liked them at that time. The words in their songs were also very deep and well thought of.
This is my favorite songs among all the songs they’ve released. I like it because of the melody, simple and subtle and sounds like a song you would hear from the 1960s. The words are nice and a little romantic. At that time, the clipping of the angels wings to make her mine made me swoon! ahahaha. The video though is simple, not really sure about the concept though… 🙂
Will also be posting the lyrics to this song ^_^
Heaven Knows (This Angel Has Flown)
There are times when I’m lying in my bed
How I bellow and cry from this stupid get
And my eyes are like windshields on a rainy day
Almost rubbed down, swelling, as I keep on
Dipping my face in these cold hands of mine
Heaven knows how bitter I am
‘Cause this angel has flown away from me
Leaving me in drunken misery
I should have clipped her wings and made her mine
For all eternity
Now this angel has flown away from me
Thought I had the strength to set her free
Did what I did because I love her so
Will she ever find her way back home to me
I’m so tired, I feel like catching forty winks
Being up all night in this elbow room
That puts me in a trance
Where hopes and dreams come true
Now my lips are burning and my eyes are hurting
From this fumes I mixed till I light another
Cigarette just to pass my time, oh
Heaven knows how embittered I am
I truly miss the old OPM bands… at the moment, I’m too sad as I am seeing some very good bands disband. Hope OPM bands would rule the airwaves again!!!
