All of the Angels - Letters to Bach - Lyrics


Lyrics: Noa (Achinoam Nini)

Music: cantata 140, Johann Sebastian Bach

If all of the angels sang together surely, they’d say: we need you!

If all of the angels stood together they would embrace and greet you.

Some say, everything has always been this same, but they wouldn’t if they had a chance to meet you…

Now daylight is fading, and I will be waiting,

For you to send a sign from where the wind has taken every song every smile your spirit has awakened, sunrise birds singing out Halelluya,

Halleluya.

When all of the angels wondered how your curious eyes had found them

Then all of the angels understood you’d wrapped your arms around them…

Through strong winds and thunder, they’d spread wings and wonder…

They’d try tenderly to rally in your soul, but your spirit and conviction would astound them..

When all of the angels wondered how your curious eyes had found them…

Then of the angels understood you’d wrapped your arms around them…

They’d try tenderly to rally in your soul, but your courage and conviction would astound them…

And I won’t be crying, for you dear, are flying,

Into a place of light, a place of freedom,

You’ve escaped the dark bitter night, you went believing in the sunrise, birds singing out Halleluya..

Halleluya..

For what is a life but shifting sky, the loneliest cry, a story

For what is a life, but love made gently, or in blaze of glory

The bliss of creation, the realization,

That you wonderful as you could ever be, on the way to being free you find elation,

Your arms reaching like the branches of a tree, to begin the journey to your destination

Now daylight is fading, and I will be waiting,

For you to send a sign from where the wind has taken every song every smile your spirit has awakened, sunrise birds singing out halelluya,

Halleluya.

And I won’t be crying…

For you, wonderful as you could ever be, you are waiting to begin and you are trying..

To gather the angels ‘round your soul and send them to those left hollow…

My dear, I am fighting back a single tear, though I said I wouldn’t cry, she will not follow.

It’s hard to break free of the memory of thee, love,

The loneliness, the black, the urge to whisper...

how I wish we had you back, beloved sister,

I will sing, Halleluya,

But all of the angels know you now, your stubbornness so beguiling

And fear melts into a puddle at your feet, for your spirit and your eyes are always smiling…

forever the giver,

You flow like a river,

Into a place of light, a place of freedom you’ve escaped the dark bitter night, you went believing in the sunrise, birds singing out Halleluya..

Halleluya!
