Lyrics

Change

Written By: Jason and Heather Steed

Painted leaves are falling down
Summer has grown from green to brown
Guess you're about to take your leave
With the wind that bends the trees
Whistling down your lonely road

Like a dragonfly
That had another life
Like the seasons change
Like the sun will rise

The sun goes away but I don't mind
Things are in motion all the time
If you choose to stay then you're left behind

Like a dragonfly
That had another life
Like the seasons change
Like the sun will rise
Like a morning rain
Like a hurricane
You can't stop the seasons of your life
So, change

Give me your hand, don't stay the same
You'll hear me whispering your name

Like a dragonfly
That had another life
Like the seasons change
Like the sun will rise
Like a morning rain
Like a hurricane
You can't stop the seasons of your life
So, change

Angel

Written By: Blue Fable

V1:
Angel dreaming. Painted earth and crystal skies
Dawn is speaking, "Give me life, help me to thrive."

V2:
Angel waking. Darkened skies, she rubs her eyes.
Phoenix falling, so broken, flying too high

V3:
Angel weeping. From this place she cannot hide
Dawn is pleading, "Bring me the breath to survive."

Chorus:
Now she'll go to that place
Countless scars she'll erase.
What she took she'll replace
And the dawn will find her own skies
Phoenix will rise. Phoenix will rise.

V4:
Angel pleading. Shares a message with the wise
Dawn is grieving. Broken by flying too high

(Chorus)

Bridge:
From the ashes, Angel finds new life.

V5:
From the ashes, painted earth and crystal skies
Phoenix singing,
Bringing something bold and new
From the ashes that Angel revived.
