Everybody has an Angel

Wow! Just been going through the archives and came across this one. I wrote and recorded this when I left my daughters mother 15 YEARS AGO!!. My daughter (Georgia) was 3 years old at the time and I wanted to let her know that although I was leaving the house; I would always be there for her. She's 18 now and spends most of her time raiding my fridge.

It's very 'reverby' and you can hear the creaking of the wicker chair I'm sitting on while I play my old Yamaha 12-String... but I think I'll keep it exactly the way it is! ;o)

One day you'll be so much older
then the time it takes to forget.
When the thoughts of now are cloaked in clouds of regret.
You may believe in one thing...
but all I can tell you is that nothing could be further from the truth.
There is only one star in my life, and baby that's you.

Cos everybody has an Angel, for a moment in time.
Yeah everybody has an Angel and you'll always be mine.

So long, I've no need to miss you
'cos you're always here in my dreams.
From the first word I taught you, to the first time I saw you,
and I knew nothing in this world could be as bad as it seems when...

Everybody has an Angel, for a moment in time.
Yeah everybody has an Angel and you'll always be mine.

As long as the stars shine
and the gift of life keeps flowing through my veins,
though even when I'm gone you know that
I will still be there for you; if you'll be there for me.

I've gotta go now and fight those battles
like the hero you think I am.
But as always I'll leave you with a token of my heart in your hands.
So heed the words...

Everybody has an Angel, for a moment in time.
Yeah everybody has an Angel and you'll always be mine.

Jon! This is outstanding! Beautiful tune. Your vocal is spot on! The harmonies are great. Crystal clear guitar sound. This is pro stuff. Now go restock the fridge!

Hi Jon. Glad you left this as is, it is fantastic. I really like your vocals and the guitar work and tone is wonderful. Really like the lyrics too. How does your daughter cope with hearing you sing this one now that she is 18? Great post. Warm regards, Peter.

Nice songwriting here. Good hook and the lyric develops it well. I like the transition to the bridge, and the changes/melody there are a good contrast to the rest of the song. Heartfelt vocals and tight playing.

Hehe, I'm twice that age and STILL raid my Mom's fridge. You have a terrific voice, very controlled and it shows nicely on this song. Great lyrics as well, very awesome tune!

Great song
Outstanding vocal tone, as is the playing and production. Has a country feel to me - George Strait maybe? What I especially like about the lyrics is that although they're written with your daughter in mind, they have a general meaning that could apply in lots of contexts. Much enjoyed!
