Lyrics

An Angel In My Life

Written By: Steve Barnett

AN ANGEL IN MY LIFE
A-- D--
SITTING HERE ON THE PORCH SWING

WATCHING THE SLOWLY SETTING SUN

THE LATE SUMMER BREEZES BLOWING THROUGH MY HAIR

ANOTHER DAY IS DONE
D E
THE PHONE RINGS INSIDE THE HOUSE

AND DAD SAYS HE’S RIGHT HERE

THE SARGEANT SAYS ITS TIME TO GO TO WAR

AND I HEAR MY DAD SOFTLY SHED A TEAR

A D A D
I LIFT MY HEAD AND SEE AN ANGEL SAILING BY
A D
HER FLOWING ROBES DRAPED ACROSS THE HEAVENS
A D
SHE GAZES INTO MY EYES
Bm Fm
AND I HEAR HER SAY
Bm Fm Bm Fm E
IT WILL BE ALRIGHT, I WILL KEEP YOU SAFE

ON THE GROUND IN THE HOT DESERT SAND

BULLETS FLYING ALL AROUND

I HEAR MY COMRADES CRYING OUT

AND ANOTHER HITS THE GROUND

THE SMELL OF DEATH IS IN THE SKY

AND A TEAR COMES TO MY EYE

PLEASE GOD LET ME LIVE ANOTHER DAY

PLEASE DON’T LET ME DIE

A D A D
I LIFT MY HEAD AND SEE AN ANGEL SAILING BY
A D
HER GRACEFUL WINGS SOARING OVER THE DESERT
A D
SHE GAZES INTO MY EYES
Bm Fm
AND I HEAR HER SAY
Bm Fm Bm Fm E
IT WILL BE ALRIGHT, I WILL KEEP YOU SAFE

ALONE AT LAST IN THE QUIET OF MY TENT

READING LETTERS FROM HOME

DAD WRITES HE’S PROUD TO HAVE ME AS HIS SON

AND ENDS TO OUR HERO HURRY HOME

THE SARGENT AND THE CHAPLIN ARE OUT SIDE THE DOOR

THEY CLEAR THEIR THROATS AND ASK TO COME INSIDE

THE CHAPLIN SAYS I’M SORRY BUT YOUR DAD HAS PASSED AWAY

WE’VE GOT TO GET YOU HOME TONIGHT

A D A D
I LIFT MY HEAD AND SEE AN ANGEL SAILING BY
A D
HER FLOWING ROBES DRAPED ACROSS THE HEAVENS
A D
SHE GAZES INTO MY EYES
Bm Fm
AND I HEAR HER SAY
Bm Fm Bm Fm E
IT WILL BE ALRIGHT, I WILL KEEP YOU SAFE

ALONE IN A ROOM WITH A THOUSAND OTHER MEN

ALL TRYING TO GET BACK HOME

I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE TO GO OR WHERE TO STAND

I WISH I COULD JUST RUN

A NURSE WALKS BY AND SAYS THAT I LOOK SO LOST

IS THERE ANYTHING SHE CAN DO

I TELL HER MY HERO DIED AND I’M TRYING TO GET HOME

BUT THE ROOM’S SO FULL WHAT AM I TO DO

SHE TAKES MY HAND, AND GUIDES ME THROUGH THE ROOM

AT THE FRONT OF EACH LINE SHE SAYS THIS SOLDIER LOST HAS DAD

WE’VE GOT TO GET HIM THROUGH
Bm Fm
AND I HEAR HER SAY
Bm Fm Bm Fm E
IT WILL BE ALRIGHT, I WILL KEEP YOU SAFE

For A Girl Who Loves You

Written By: Steve Barnett

FOR A GIRL WHO LOVES YOU
DO YOU REMEMBER THE NIGHT WE FIRST MET
TESTING OUT EACH OTHERS NERVE
DARING TO BE OVERHEARD
THEN I TOOK YOU AWAY AND I SANG YOU A SONG
OUR HEARTS BEGAN TO FIND A PLACE
WHERE THEY COULD EXIST AS ONE
CHORUS:
AND THE WORLD SEEMS TO MAKE A NEW DIFFERENCE
WHEN YOU LOVE ME
BABY YOU LOVE ME
AND THE WORLD SEEMS TO MAKE A NEW DIFFERENCE
NOW THAT YOU LOVE ME
AND BABY I LOVE YOU
DO YOU REMEMBER THE NIGHT WE FIRST DANCED
SLOWLY MOVING CHEEK TO CHEEK
WHISPERS MEANT TO MAKE HEARTS MEET
WE MOVED OFF TO THE CORNER BODIES HELD SO TIGHT
MOVING SLOWLY BACK AND FORTH
BOTH HEARTS NEW THIS WAS RIGHT
CHORUS
DO YOU REMEMBER THE NIGHT WE FIRST KISSED
THE RAIN WAS FALLING ALL AROUND
NEITHER CARING IF WE DROWNED
LIPS PRESSED TOGETHER YOUR SCENT FILLED THE AIR
A WARM PLACE BUILT DEEP IN MY HEART
FINDING YOU WAITING THERE
CHORUS
DO YOU REMEMBER THE NIGHT WE MADE LOVE
GLOWING IN THE CANDLELIGHT
HEARTS BEATING THROUGH THE NIGHT
ROLLING EMPASSIONED THE NIGHT SAILED ALONG
COLLAPSING IN EACH OTHERS ARMS
DRIFTING AT THE BREAK OF DAWN
CHORUS
