Celtic Woman - Like An Angel Passing Through My Room Lyrics




Long awaited darkness falls
Casting shadows on the walls
In the twilight hour I am alone
Sitting near the fireplace, dying embers warm my face
In this peaceful solitude
All the outside world subdued
Everything comes back to me again
In the gloom
Like an angel passing through my room

Half awake and half in dreams
Seeing long forgotten scenes
So the present runs into the past
Now and then become entwined, playing games within my mind
Like the embers as they die
Love was one prolonged good-bye
And it all comes back to me tonight
In the gloom
Like an angel passing through my room

I close my eyes
And my twilight images go by
All too soon
Like an angel passing through my room

Everything comes back to me again
In the gloom
Like an angel passing through my room

I close my eyes
And my twilight images go by
All too soon
Like an angel passing through my room

  10. Anthony Goddard

    Great cover. One of ABBA's hidden gems

  11. Ride with Riley

    Before I start! This is what I had written to my family & friends to share this video
    The woman with this beautiful voice that is singing this song, she’s like wow! The song is so beautifully & forgive me if it sounds that I’m blaming this song, which I am not in contrary it has helped me!
    So here is what this song inspired me to do! Forgive me to all that really read this!
    (Behind the scene our mother had passed away about two months ago & we all know how we all love our mother’s!) Well!
    WOW!!!
    Turn on the waterworks will yeah!!!
    To look at this improperly slapped together sentences, phrases, & word composition that some how got pulled out of someone’s rectum!
    Also to look at it from top to bottom, I too would say (WTH Riley!) starting a novel?
    You can blame it on the song if you want! WOW!!!!!!!
    Just listening to it made me want to start writing & crying!
    You know the pity me party! This is a party for only one person at a time, so wait your turn, it’ll be at your house next week!
    This is what I had been feeling for a while now, but it never got it to page!
    This is what happens when you sit in a stationary truck for 5 days afraid to move it because you don’t want the engine to blow up, then 3 more days in a hotel room by yourself & no one to talk too, while you are getting your truck fixed!
    This song & the way she sings it is so beautifully & serene!
    I could die tomorrow & feel at peace listening to her sing this song & be happy with what I have accomplished thus far in my life! But!
    With my eyes closed I could see my childhood once again & seeing my family that I miss & love so very much, right alone with the friends I used to know & the friends that I still care about today!
    To my family & friends I Thank You for being in my life & sharing this pathway that I have chosen to go down! I know it will be bumpy at times, but with good friends & family & The Lord above to travel along with, has made my life bearable!
    With all of you at your posts throughout my life, helping me keep on the straight & narrow! Giving me hope when I needed it the most & receive a ray of your love & kindness to quench my thirst in humanity!
    (Break, get a Kleenex blow your nose wipe your eyes) (Continue!)
    Because without that what you have given me at the right times in my life I would have committed suicide so many years ago!
    Thinking back to those days is like another lifetime ago!
    With me making it to the age I am now, which is a miracle in it’s own right! I have learned that we all fight inner demons! We have our own hell that we manufacturer from birth!
    You know our own personal private war you might say that we have to fight & win! So we can move on to the next stage in our lives, & the Lord is giving each of us a medal of accomplishment when we have completed each task he has given us! The Lord has blessed me with a wacky weird but lovely family!
    Starting with my Grandfathers & Grandmothers & ending with my little brother & including some awesome people that I’m proud too call my friends & I thank you all for being here so for!
    Now I hope no one checks out & leaves this wacky weird wagon wiggling its way through the tall weeds of life!
    Am I at the bottom already!
    I think I will keep this in my notes & try to write a book what do you think?
    Do you know down here looking up to the top I don’t know what I was trying to say well maybe a little!
    I hope you could see what I was trying to say!
    But she sounds good doesn’t she?

  17. John Grenchenko

    st. mike

  18. Rosemary L.

    She does a good job singing this ABBA song but nobody can sing it better than ABBA member Frida Lyngstad.

  19. Gerard Hayes

    Stunning version of this ABBA song

  20. rclaws

    She is the most alluring woman I have ever seen.

  21. Michael Dowd

    My favorite single for her. Fantastic.

  22. Julie Gurley

    what a beautiful song done by a beautiful artist with a beautiful voice.

  23. Danny Setser

    class, grace, morning doves

  24. bubbel hubbel

    the greatness, the real greatness of Anni-Frid Lyngstad as a singer, as a vocalist lay in her ability to let this song not to sound like a piece of kitsch - and this song has, despite the undisputable beauty of its composition, the tendency to this. If you´re not a master vocalist - as Björn and Benny called Anni-Frid - this song can sink immediately in a whole ocean of kitsch; and that´s what happend here: an ABBA-masterpiece turned into conventional kitsch.

  25. petros tsakos

    Oh god .....an Angel!!!

  31. HughJaxident67

    Very pleasant rendition, but her voice is not as rich or as good as Frida's in the original version

  32. ian macdonald

    She just gets better and better

  33. adam flory

    Long awaited darkness falls
    Casting shadows on the walls
    In the twilight hour I am alone
    Sitting near the fireplace, dying embers warm my face
    In this peaceful solitude
    All the outside world subdued
    Everything comes back to me again
    In the gloom
    Like an angel passing through my room
    Half awake and half in dreams
    Seeing long forgotten scenes
    So the present runs into the past
    Now and then become entwined, playing games within my mind
    Like the embers as they die
    Love was one prolonged good-bye
    And it all comes back to me tonight
    In the gloom
    Like an angel passing through my room
    I close my eyes
    And my twilight images go by

    Everything comes back to me again
    In the gloom
    Like an angel passing through my room
    I close my eyes
    And my twilight images go by
    All too soon
    Like an angel passing through my room

  39. Sam Paone

    So beautiful.

  40. Grace Rykaczewski

    So pure

  41. Marjorie McBride

    Hearing her intakes of breath spoils this for me she needs to be taught how to breathe without gasping into the mic. She needs to listen to Sissel Kyrkjebo sing it flawlessly.

  42. Diego T.

    Nice version of the ABBA song

  43. Synchronicity Man

    Lovely version of an ABBA classic.  Well done!

  48. lisa willis

    This is the most beautiful version of ABBA's song I have heard She has the voice of an angel so heartwarming and mesmerising

    Marjorie McBride

    lisa willis Have you listened to Sissel Kyrkjebo sing this?

  49. chelseacharger

    It's a bit saccharine sweet.  Richard Carpenter said he and his sister wouldn't cover an ABBA song because 'Nobody does ABBA like ABBA'.  This song is a lament of someone going to sleep for the final time.  Listen to the original on good headphones to understand it's full message. Recorded 37 years ago.  Minimalist instrumentation yet starkly beautiful and the perfect closer of an extraordinary final album.  It doesn't need such lushness.

    Michael Halligan

    Chelsea...Your opinion is only valid for you, and so you cannot opinionate for everyone else.

    Clive Hocker

    Interesting interpretation - but, equally, it’s a peaceful resolution to the wild paranoia of the album’s opening track, The Visitors, which portrays something malevolent trying to break in.

  50. claude grayson

    i think ive listened to all the versions of this song ,and still think this is the most beautiful and easiest to listen to.well done .

  51. Mike thefoto

    Sorry, but in my humble opinion this version has no feeling, no soul to it, just sounds as though it is just another number to be turned out before collecting the pay cheque.

  52. Geraldine Gaggia

    Beautiful

  53. Alex Odonnell

    A terrible rendition in EVERY way.

    Cassie and Hailey

    Alex Odonnell what do you mean? She did stunning!

    Marjorie McBride

    She is gasping for breath instead of taking breath from the diaphragm.

    Keith Pilbeam

    Bollocks

  54. Keith Pilbeam

    Absolutely beautiful.Will have this played the day they put me to rest

  55. Ronni G

    She's a pretty girl, and her voice is smooth and pretty, but she isn't the BEST or STRONGEST singer I have ever heard.

    Schafer Olsen

    Yeah rather listen to Sissel's version

    Marjorie McBride

    Me too, Sissel is better.

  56. David Hopkins

    For me Mairead is an Angel

  57. Gnimn

    I was so impressed with how she connected to this song's every lyric. Vocally, she's perfect.

  58. Rob Laird

    I just want to spend the rest of my life with her.

  59. Patrick Deegan

    Don't know how many times a week i listen to this.

  60. Jim Clarke

    stunning

  61. Elizabeth Girard

    daisy mae is in heaven now . she is my angel now , daisy is fitted with wings now .

  62. Sophie Star

    blue looks the best on her because her dark hair compliments it

  63. John Combs

    Beautiful song, beautiful voice, super beautiful singer. (Oh, yes).

  64. Sin 2015

    Can't wait to go see them in April

  65. francisca veronica

    Bela interpretação!

  66. terry townsend

    very beautiful

  67. Jonathan S Fisher

    Beatiful!!

  68. Rick Mulligan

    If I had to pick One song and one song only, this is it; this s MY song. Thank you for 'bringing back' my Melissa. I cherish this song with every breath, and your version of it cannot be rivaled. ♥♥

    Gonzalo Peña

    Rick Mulligan I agree with you. It’s my favorite song !

  69. Gary Hinkle

    One Of The Most Beautiful Songs. That Benny Andersson, and Bjorn Ulvaeus Ever Wrote ! 🎵

    shuboy05

    Wait a minute, are you telling me this was an ABBA song?

    cdbvideo

    Sure is!

    Brian Kores

    It was off ABBA's last studio album, The Visitors, back in 1981.

    Morning Sky

    One of at least fifty that they wrote of this standard. They were as good in the 70's as Lennon & McCartney in the 60's.

  70. William Stall

    Wow, never thought someone could do better than Sissel but this was as outstanding as Sissel's rendition...

  71. Hailey E.M.S.

    She's my favorite member

    marty robbins

    she's  mine  too  very  beautiful  performer

  72. puellamagica

    she has a real knack for imbuing a song with a sort of exquisite, melting tenderness. such a good addition to the group <3

    true2himself

    My thoughts exactly, except I wasn't quite able to put them into words. Glad you were able to.

    Kevin Kurkowski

    @true2himself PC zc

    Quinn Meche

    she is the angel.

  73. ObssessedCWFan

    Although a few years too late, this would've been a good track for the CW Lullaby CD ❤❤❤

  74. Metamorph

    Mairead Carlin looks and sounds like an angel.

  75. ObssessedCWFan

    She's an angel herself! 😇😍❤

  76. Jochem Zijtveld van

    Best performance in 35 years, when Agnetha Faltkog did it.

    Jochem Zijtveld van

    yes you're right finaly got the CD what a terrific voice.

    Selina

    Frida sang it, not Agnetha

    Selina

    The 2 voices we are comparing are too different. I prefer Frida's voice, it gives the song an ethereal element. This singer is nice but not my cup of tea in regards to this song

    Selina

    Wolfman Jack wolfhounds wrote 'Best performance in 35 years, when Agnetha Faltkog did it.' Just correcting him on that

    desiderius g

    I think Mairead sings it far better i am thrilled by her voice. Tears got in my eyes, well people i must be a freak then but i can not change my feelings.

  77. sleekpiano

    absolutely gorgeous!... Absolutely gorgeous!! and i hate to add a but, But how much more would it be if untouched! no reverb on the piano (still upset david downes isn't on it!.. a bit..) and her performance! she needed a little more spaces to step forward for those big moments, and the lighting... i'll stop, lol

    Manoapool

    +sleekpiano excellent observations. The lighting is high school level at best.

    ObssessedCWFan

    +sleekpiano She's singing it even better in the current CW Destiny tour.

    DeutschWish

    Did David leave CW?

    ObssessedCWFan

    +DeutschWish Yes. He's working on other projects.
