Angie, Angie.
When will those clouds all disappear?
Angie, Angie.
Where will it lead us from here?
With no lovin' 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.

Angie, you're beautiful.
But ain't it time we said goodbye.
Angie, I still love you (baby).
Remember all those nights we cried.

All the dreams we held so close.
Seemed to all go up on a smoke.
Let me whisper in your ear.
Angie, Angie.
Where will it lead us from here? Yeah.

Oh Angie don't you weep.
All your kisses still taste sweet.
I hate that sadness in your eyes.
But Angie, Angie, ain't it time we said goodbye.

(ain't it time we said goodbye)

With no lovin' in our souls and no money in our coats.
You can't say we're satisfied.
But Angie, I still love you baby.
Everywhere I look I see your eyes.
There ain't a woman that comes close to you.
Come on baby dry your eyes.
But Angie, Angie.
Ain't it good to be alive.

Angie, Angie, you can't say we never tried.

There was speculation that the song was about David Bowie's first wife Angela,the actress Angie Dickinson, Keith Richards' newborn daughter Dandelion Angela, and others. In 1993, in an interview for the liner notes to the Rolling Stones' compilation album Jump Back: The Best of The Rolling Stones, Richards said that the title was inspired by his baby daughter. However, in his 2010 memoir Life, Richards said that he had chosen the name at random when writing the song — before he knew that his baby would be named Angela or even knew that his baby would be a girl — and that the song "was not about any particular person". According to NME, Jagger's contributions to the lyrics referred to his breakup with Marianne Faithfull. (Wikipedia)
