Runrig - In Search Of Angels Lyrics




Pick up the broken pieces from the ground
All your diminishing returns
And take a good look at the master plan
'Cause down here every candle burns

You are as gentle as the morning dawn
Torment can't wash away your grace
In search of angels with the Uist eyes
So many suns light up your face

Tonight the skies are red
So red they fill my eyes
Sundown on barren words that can't describe
Your island paradise
But I know that all's well with the world
Don't worry anymore
Don't worry now

Too many seas to cross, too many roads
You leave me with my higher need
This one horizon in our borrowed hour
Such little lives we lead

Tonight the skies are red
So red they fill my eyes
Sundown on barren words that can't describe
Your island paradise
But I know that all's well with the world
Don't worry anymore
Don't worry now
Another sun will rise

  1. Rainer Viehmeister-Philipps

    Great Song and great Voices

  2. Charlotte Cook

    im here because one of my residents, who was a big runrig fan, and adored brian, sadly passed away on monday suddenly..... im listening to remember her.... every time i supported her in the morning, she would play runrig, and talk about her favourite songs.... i took her to see them in london a couple of years ago, and she made it to stirling for the final concert... im going to miss her goodnight sara xx

  3. Siobhan North

    Goosebumps!!!

  4. Don Stewart

    Just ordered this from Music Scotland! Didn't know they were in Oban. Used to live in Oban! Fergie played at my wedding back in '73!

  5. Don Stewart

    Just love that smile at the end when he knows he's nailed it!

  6. Don Stewart

    Who wrote this song?

    burrowfields

    Rory MacDonald (Runrig)

    Don Stewart

    @burrowfields Thanks. So these boys were not just good musicians but great composers.

  7. Don Stewart

    Oi! "Music in Scotland!" You still about? I think I want to speak to you! Hope you got this on disc! Or I am open to other options.

  8. Don Stewart

    That smile at the end - he knew he cracked it!

  9. Don Stewart

    Who had the inspiration for this recording? I cannot stop playing it. Must get it on disc. I reckon this would have won us the Eurovision contest!

  10. Don Stewart

    I think I want this when my ashes are scattered on the water. Not that I'll be there to hear it but it may incite a tear or two in my memory - something has to!

  11. Don Stewart

    Is this on general release? Where can I buy it and why have I not heard this on radio? I listen to radio 2 which unfortunately has taken a nosedive recently.

  12. Wolf S

    This is incredible, gordious, like angels-singing, you are wonderful - THANK YOU so much !! THIS IS MUSIC PURE °_°

  13. Colin Douglas

    I have to say, great vocalist that Bruce Gelloe is, this version knocks Bruce out the park! Perfect performance!
