Loveless, Patty - Sorrowful Angels Lyrics




She loved him most when his eyes were gray
The palest shade of a winter day
They filled her with a raging fire
And a bittersweet desire

She shined for him like candlelight
That softly beckons in the night
But he said no right to her face
Then simply turned and walked away

All Heaven watched from way on high
True love given and denied
And while her heart was broke and bleeding
Sorrowful angels wept into their wings

She wore him like a lock and chain
Only in dreams she spoke his name
By day it slipped upon her tongue
The taste of unrequited love

Now her hair is long and gray
The palest shade of a winter day
She never took a ring of gold
She swears she never loved a soul

    She loved him most when his eyes were gray
    The palest shade of a winter day
    They filled her with a raging fire
    And a bittersweet desire
    She shined for him like candlelight
    That softly beckons in the night
    But he said no right to her face
    Then simply turned and walked away
    All Heaven watched from way on high
    True love given and denied
    And while her heart was broke and bleeding
    Sorrowful angels wept into their wings
    She wore him like a lock and chain
    Only in dreams she spoke his name
    By day it slipped upon her tongue
    The taste of unrequited love
    Now her hair is long and gray
    The palest shade of a winter day
    She never took a ring of gold
    She swears she never loved a soul
    Sorrowful angels wept into their wings
    She loved him most when his eyes were gray

  31. MoPar Florida

  32. beadsandgrace

    Beautiful first time i heard this .. gonna buy it now.

  33. floyd phillips

    I just love her voice and way she sings. She sings from way down deep in her soul and she feels for what she's singing. That's something a whole bunch of country singers lack in today's music even rock ain't got the talent that it takes to get the audience up on their feet

    countrygirl country musiclover

    floyd phillips BITCH I CAN TELL YOU DO NOT KNOW JACK FUCKING SHIT ABOUT TODAY'S COUNTRY. TODAY'S COUNTRY DOES GET THE AUDIENCE ON THEIR FEET. TODAY'S COUNTRY DOES NOT LACK ONE SINGLE SOLITARY THING THAT IT HAD BACK IN PATTY'S TIME ERA. DO NOT EVER TYPE ANYTHING AGAIN UNTIL YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TYPING IS ACTUAL FACTS.

    countrygirl country musiclover —Well ‘Bless Your Heart’, Honey! You need to CHILL and sit your ranting ass DOWN. You need to humble yourself before you talk trash and calling people ‘bitches’, for stating their own opinion. Which obviously has a hell of a lot more ‘likes’ in agreement; than your opinion seems to have.🤣 ..Anyone who knows about music at all, from any era of time compared to today, would probably all agree that the music of today lacks a lot more talent then it did in other points in time. Please, do tell, how does the auto tune and over processed music of today even begin to compare to the music of other times. Or specifically Patty’s music? Also, how old are you? Like who writes in all caps like that? If you don’t like Patty’s music, then why the hell are you on one of her songs talking shit? Because if you DID like Patty’s music; I don’t see why you wouldn’t like the compliments given about her music!? So how about you sit down and shut up and enjoy her music, or get your whiny ass off her videos and go elsewhere! ✌️

  34. Vivi watkins berg

    love her!!!

  35. dan darnell

    Mercy.

    That whole band is NAILIN' it. Her voice, of course, is riveting.

  36. Willy Kayak

    truly a gem of a singer, I have enjoyed her voice for decades. . .this song is chilling and the line " sorrowful angles wept into their wings" , well true brilliance. . . .Willy

  37. paul levine

    It never ceases to amaze me the depth & emotional power this women has, while she never enters into the commercialism that prevades todays so called country music. While always surrounding herself with musicians of her own cailber, she blows pretty much everybody clean away. I play alot of her songs on guitar & am always trying to either wipe my eyes or get rid of the goosebumps,!! Songs like this & Old Soul, & Im On Your Side, & To Feel That way at All, show such grace & power, She's a REAL GEM

  38. Vera Lawrence

    This song hits home...BIG TIME!

  39. Greg Winters

    I had a Wife that this song reminedes of.Patty's voice is heavenly in this song as it always is.
