Soweto Gospel Choir : In the arms of an angel

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There’s always some reason
To feel not good enough
And it’s hard at the end of the day

I need some distraction
Or a beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
Let me be empty
Oh and weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
There’s vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting
Keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack

It don’t make no difference
Escaping one last time
It’s easier to believe
In this sweet madness
Oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

In the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

After a song of Sarah Mc Lachlan

Leadership for the Africa we want

The World Economic Forum (WEF) report for 2014 identifies two critical leadership problems globally – the first is that there is a leadership deficit, and the second is that there is a lack of trust in policies and programs pursued by leaders.
