Angie Lyrics

Angie, Angie, when will those clouds all disappear?
Angie, Angie, where will it lead us from here?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You can’t say we’re satisfied
But Angie, Angie, you can’t say we never tried

    It would seem to be recognition that an addiction must end in that it has left pain and consumed time and resources, and empty soul, the drug no longer satisfies. Perhaps it was wonderful feeling at first but no more just destructive. All the dreams we held so close seemed to all go up in smoke.

    It's about his dog dying. "There ain't a woman who comes close to you."

    This song couldn't have been written about Angela Richards as at the time of writing, her name was Dandelion..She changed it to Angela much later.

    This song is about David Bowies wife Angie, who allegedly walked in on Bowie and Mic in bed together naked... Denied by mic and Bowie, but Angie herself swears that she walked in on Mic and Bowie after having sexual relations.

    It was definitely written by Keef, but Mick could easily have helped with finishing the lyrics (a common distribution of duties). Angie is most likely related to his daughter Angela... that timing makes perfect sense. Anita was a mess through most of her relationship with Keef, which started on rocky terms as he nicked her from Brian Jones. Poor Brian, lost his girl, then his gig, then his life. I'm sure there are many, many other women around the Stones' various circles that inspired it. But, I think Anita is the most likely model: Keef always loved her, but she was a messed up, hard to handle, often violent person.

    In "Life" written by Keith Richards, he states that in indeed wrote Angie directly after kicking heroin and right before the birth of his second child, a daughter named....... Angela.

    Mick Jagger, when asked about Angie, said that this song was written by Keith Richards. So this song is probably about Anita Pallemberg and KR & AP persevering heroin addiction

    It was absolutley about David Bowies wife anglea, and he was breaking it off without trying to hurt her. David was a great friend to mick they all three very close for about a five years or so but i do beleve the rumors that they were all lovers toghether. Bowie and angie were and sill are very beautiful,ecentric people as is mick jagger. Despite all relationship proplems Bowie and mick continue to stay friends.

    I interpret it as a song Jagger wrote for Bowie suggesting that maybe it's time for Bowiw to end things with his wife Angie because they had a famously rocky relationship

    Mick Jagger wrote this song about David Bowie's ex-wife Angela. She and Mick were having an affair and Mick decided it was time to break it off as not to hurt Bowie, his good friend and rumored lover.
