Angeles – Elliott Smith
The song is composed of wordless mouth sounds that resemble Irish and Scottish Gaelic. Its story was inspired by the tradition of Scottish waulking songs sung by women as they weaved cloth. It follows its partner piece, "Miss Clare Remembers" from Watermark, also named after one of her stories. The song was adapted from its original form as an instrumental track for the soundtrack to the romantic film Far and Awaywith Roma writing a set of lyrics based on the film's themes.
A girl who was crying while recounting the story of her separation from, and return to, her home had moved them greatly.
After Enya had written a melody for the song, the two imagined the scenario of the girl saying goodbye at the train station, "waiting until it's all over". Roma was inspired to name the track by listening to its sound and structure with the melody lines constantly "sweeping in between each other" which created a wind-like effect. The song refers to the story of a large tidal wave destroying the church, and everyone inside it, at the same location where her grandparents are buried, at a graveyard by a beach at Enya's birthplace in County Donegal.
