We may find a female vocalist for this later. In the meantime, Billy has provided a fine vocal guide on the demo.
Lyrics
Angels In Snow (v1) In the dusty window of a small pawn shop I saw something shiny that caused me to stop An old-fashioned snow globe had caught my eye Though it wasn't an object I'd normally buy Suddenly memories took centre stage And I was a child at a very young age Chorus My daddy beside me, at 13 below Teaching me how to make angels in snow We lay on our backs Did jumping jacks Giggling under a pale winter sky I closed my eyes tightly, pretended to fly With my daddy beside me, at 13 below Watching his angel make angels in snow (v2) The frog pond iced over, he laced up my skates Held my hand tightly as I tripped in his wake He'd do a few rounds to get into his stride Then glide to a stop while he twirled me up high With my toes nearly frozen by the time we got home He knelt down before me to rub my feet warm Chorus My daddy beside me, at 13 below Teaching me how to make angels in snow We lay on our backs Did jumping jacks Giggling under a pale winter sky I closed my eyes tightly, pretended to fly With my daddy beside me, at 13 below Watching his angel make angels in snow Bridge Somber now under a pale winter sky I close my eyes tightly, try hard not to cry I see Dad beside me, at 13 below Watching his angel make angels in snow (v3) Over the years, there seemed so much to do I travelled afar, and even letters grew few He called out my name when he didn't have long But before I could reach him, my father was gone Now all I'd wish, if I could give the command Is my feet once again in my father's warm hands Repeat bridge Somber now under a pale winter sky I close my eyes tightly, try hard not to cry I'm smiling through tears because I see him right now Teaching angels to make self-portraits in snow Copyright: 2008-2009 Donna Devine
