Album: Be Yourself Tonight (1985)
Charted: 1 22
  • No one on earth could feel like this
    I'm thrown and overblown with bliss
    There must be an angel playing with my heart

    I walk into an empty room
    And suddenly my heart goes boom
    There's a multitude of angels and they're playing with my heart

    Must be talking to an angel [x12]

    No one on earth could feel like this
    I'm thrown and overblown with bliss
    There must be an angel playing with my heart

    And when I think that I'm alone
    It seems there's more of us at home
    There's an orchestra of angels and they're playing with my heart

    Must me talking to an angel [x12]

    I was feeling, Ooh, sedated
    Watching angels celebrating
    Could this be reactivating
    All my senses dislocating

    This must be the strange deception
    By celestial intervention
    Leaving me the recollection
    Of your heavenly connection

    I walk into an emtpy room
    And suddenly my heart goes boom
    There's a multitude of angels and they're playing with my heart

  • Graffiti from Australia If I watch the video closely I notice an intentional indifference between Stewart and Lennox which is resolved at the bridge when a woman catches Lennox’s eye. The multitudes of angels could refer to the others who feel similarly to Lennox.
  • Jen from Dover, NhThis is one of the most beautiful songs ever made...love the video too
