Description
Alimar was kind enough to re-mix this song I originally posted in January. This version is much cleaner and simpler...closer to the way it was originally written. Thank you, Alimar!

A song for my daughter, Kerry Anne- 2001-2003 I wrote this song when she was born and it took on greater significance when we lost her in June 2003.

Lyrics
Lying there so precious and small
I close my eyes and take in it all
You are so beautiful,
You are my angel, Kerry my angel

Heaven sent, from above
With every breath you give me love
and you don't know how precious you are
You are my angel
Kerry, my angel

Sleep little baby
close your eyes
I will protect you through the night

God is watching over you
Sees your smile and I know it's true
He will protect and keep you well
For you are my angel
Kerry my Angel

Sleep little baby
Don't you cry
I will protect you
through the night

Lying there so precious and small
I close my eyes and take in it all
Who knows what tomorrow will bring
but you are my everything
I will protect and keep you well
for You are my angel
Kerry my angel
Kerry my angel

nice re-master
Sounds like Alimar did a nice job with the remix. As
before, this song is so very moving. Sweet melody and
wonderful lyrics. And another adorable picture of Kerry.

Moving
I can hear the pure adoration in your voice. This is so sweet. What will she think when she is old enough to know you have written this for her? You know, my mom's name is Kerry and she too, is an angel. Thanks for sharing Adam, and congratulations, she looks just like you.

When you asked if I would remix this song, there was no
hesitation. You placed a precious stone in my hands, and
I'm honored that you entrusted me with it. I was worried,
at first, that I took such a minimalist approach with it.
Your vocals needed to be up front, where they belonged
all along. Thanks for letting me take all those liberties.

Al- I can't thank you enough for what you've done here. Taking this "precious
stone" and shaping it into something closer to what was more intended. Most
important of all, my family much prefers the purity of this version. Thank you!

Perfect

While we've talked about the 'imperfections' in this song
and what they mean, this song is, nonetheless, 'perfect,' in
what it is, AC.

I'm so glad you've shared it here...again.
Beautiful.

Alimar, superb job on the remix.

Gorgeous and lovely heart!
This song continues to move me upon each listen. This
new remix is superb. I agree with Al that your vocals up
front are where they belong and just love the harmonies.
This is such a beautifully written song and played so heart
felt. You've certainly touched my life with this precious
piece....thank you Adam! True love is never lost as it
keeps giving and giving....My Angel is a perfect example
of unconditional love.

Awww
Very touching... This goes right into my bones. This song
is very important to you and your family obviously - I am
honored you have taken the time to share this with the
macjam community as this should in one way or the other
concern all of us on top of the fact that this is also a very
good song without the tradegy that lays behind it. Very
nice mix, clean but thick.

Thank you aclarke.

Lovely song
I'm not religious but there are times when I wish the belief could be true and, for your sake and Kerry's, this is one of them. It was beautifully sung and harmonized and courageously offered given words that must have an overwhelming irony for you. She lives in your song and it's quite a beautiful thing you have done. It was very loving to write it and extraordinarily loving to share it.

Great vocals
Hard to review this, knowing the circumstances. My wife
and I have three kids, and I don't know what I'd do if we
were to lose any of them.

An excellent song. Vocal harmonies are well done.

It is wonderful that we have music to celebrate and remember... an incredible tribute... when I write music for my family I like to think it is something that will live on and serve as a reminder of the amazingly perfect miracle of life and love.

Harmony
I like the song but I would loose the background vocals or only have them come in on the chorus. There's a few that are off key. Cool song man! Just throwin my two cents. Hope this helps?
aclarke said 5180 days ago (May 9th, 2005)
Harmony
Thanks- I appreciate the input. Yeah, I know there are some flat notes in
there- all the harmonies were one take improvosations. As far as the song
goes, it's a tribute to my daughter who was perfectly flawed. I considered re-
singing the harmonies but it just seems right the way it is. Again- thanks for
the listen and taking the time to comment!

I really like the guitar sound, kinda reminds me of the Pretenders. I commend you for taking something tragic and making something creative and good from it. Some of the best art comes out of bad experiences.

Heartfelt and touching.
Beautiful songwriting with a heartbreaking story behind it.

Nice, non-fussy production that lets the emotion take the
lead. I think Kerry will live on in the hearts of anyone who
hears this song. Good job, dad. Good work.

well recieved
this song is extremely expressive - sounds like a classic. by
enduring something this tragic; you have truly captured the
emotion you are trying to project, and have communicated it
beautifully.

I cant even imagine how hard it must have been for you and your family. I
have too much experience with grief, and I know how unpredictable it is.
I'm so impressed that you were able to take it and make this beautiful
tribute. Beautiful.
