Angel

Ooh…ooh…ooh

Sometimes the most beautiful things
The most innocent things
And many of those dreams
Pass us by
Keep passing me by

You feel good
I said it’s funny that you understood
I knew you would
When you were good
You were very, very good

So I close my eyes softly
’till I become that part of the wind
That we all long for sometime, yeah
And to those that I love like a ghost through a fog
Like a charmed hour and a haunted song
And the angel of my dreams
Angel of my dreams

He said you feel good
I said it’s funny that you understood
I knew you would
When you were good, baby
Mmm, you were very good

I still look up
When you walk in the room
I’ve the same wide eyes
Now they tell the story

I try not to reach out
When you turn around you say hello
And we both pretend
No great pretender

So I close my eyes softly
’till I become that part of the wind
That we all long for sometime, yeah

Well, to those that I love like a ghost through a fog
Like a charmed hour and a haunted song
And the angel
Angel of my dreams
Angel, mmm, of my dreams…

I still look up
I try hard not to look up, ooh yeah
That girl was me
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Track a ghost through the fog
Yeah, yeah, yeah
A charmed hour and a haunted song
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Go track a ghost through the fog, baby
Yeah
Well, track a ghost through the fog, baby

Oh, you try hard
But you’ll never catch me, yeah
Ooh…well that girl was me
I know you’ll try hard
But you’ll never catch me

About the Song

About: Mick Fleetwood

In a contemporary documentary, Stevie noted that this upbeat rock ‘n’ roll song somehow ended up with an eerie undertone.

Stevie: “A song about Mick. Not so much my love affair with him. I was always taken with his style, and in those days he would walk in the room and I would just look up. ‘I still look up when you walk in the room… I try not to reach out.’ It’s all about him and his crazy fob watch and his really beautiful clothes. He’s a very stylish individual and I was just this little California girl who’d never really known anybody like him.”
