Sarah McLachlan Quotes
We're just here to put on a great musical show and I think any social or political issues are secondary, although very important, because it is a music festival first and foremost,
The first gig we ever played was in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where I'm from,
'Time after Time' is one of the best pop songs ever written, in my opinion. It's an incredible, beautiful, timeless song.
I'm so tired, but I can't sleep...standing on the edge of something much too deep...funny how I feel so much but cannot say a word...we are screaming inside, oh, but we can't be heard...so afraid to love you, more afraid to lose...clinging to a past
In the arms of the angels, fly away from here....you are pulled from the wreckage, of your silent revelry, you're in the arms of the angels, may you find some comfort here...
The night is my companion...solitude my guide....and I would be the one to hold you down, kiss you so hard, I'll take your breath away...my body aches to breathe your breath, your words keep me alive.
My love, you know you are my best friend. You know that I'd do anything for you And my love, let nothing come between us. My love for you is strong and true.
