"The emotions that are on this record are very abstract, out of focus, fragmented, its words are gray. But that is exactlywhat it should be."

"Angel Of Harlem" (live from Paris)

A song written for Billie Holiday, tonight we dedicate to Michael Jackson.

It was a cold and wet December day
When we touched the ground at JFK
Snow was melting all around
BLS I heard the sound of an angel
New York like a Christmas tree
Tonight this city belongs to me, angel

Soul love, this love won't let me go
So long Angel of Harlem

Birdland on fifty-three
The street sounds like a symphony
We got John Coltrane and a love supreme
Miles, and she's got to be an angel
Lady Day got a diamond eye
She sees the truth behind the lies, angel

Soul love, this love won't let me go
So long Angel of Harlem
Angel of Harlem

She's heart and soul
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh hey, she knows you call

Blue light on the avenue
God knows they got to you
An empty glass, the lady sings
Eyes swollen like a bee sting
Blinded, you lost your way
Through the side streets and the alleyway
Like a star exploding in the night
Falling in the city in broad daylight
An angel in devil's shoes
Salvation in the blues
You never looked like no angel
Yeah yeah, Angel of Harlem

Angel, Angel of Harlem
Angel, Angel of Harlem

I'm talking about the man in mirror
I'm walking if the man can change
And no body can be any different
If you wanna take the world
A better place
Take a look at yourself and make that change
Stop or you don't stop
Don't stop till you get enough
Keep on with the force, don't stop
Don't stop till you get enough
Keep on with the force, don't stop
Don't stop till you get enough
Keep on with the force, don't stop
Don't stop till you get enough
Keep on with the force, don't stop
Don't stop till you get enough
Keep on with the force, don't stop
Don't stop till you get enough
Keep on with the force, don't stop
Don't stop till you get enough
Keep on with the force, don't stop
Don't stop till you get enough
Keep on with the force, don't stop
Don't stop till you get enough
Keep on with the force, don't stop
Don't stop till you get enough
Keep on with the force, don't stop
Don't stop till you get enough
