AngelHeroBlogPost13_2I wrote the lyrics of the song Angel Heroes (music and arrangement by gifted local musician John Valentine, demoed by Azalea studios in Nashville in 2005, and CD cover by my friend Phyllis Ha) as a tribute to my formerly dearest friend and present angel hero Vic Lazzarini, the protagonist of my memoir Angel Hero. 

This was the third version of Angel Heroes demoed by talented Azalea studios in Nashville. Why did I write multiple versions of this song? Because thoughts of deep-hearted, fun-loving Vic continued to dance through my mind as I pursued my quest of capturing his character and telling his story in such a soulful and authentic way it would do his spirit proud.

And I might not be done yet! I’ve got a feeling the future holds changed lyrics and another demo.

Here are the lyrics that belong to this version:

 

Angel Heroes

 

You who died protecting us are heroes

You bravely fought the devil in his den

We’re proud of you but hurting too

Our hope died with you ‘til you rose again

At dawn we sometimes feel your spirit kiss

Your living light dissolves our pain like mist

 

Angel heroes above the blue blue sky

Your true love gives us the wings to fly

Up up and away into your arms again

Still our white knights now with angel wings

Shine your higher love on us and hear us sing

Angel heroes, angel heroes

Kissing you in our dreams

 

The Bible says no man has greater love

Than he who dies so other folks might live

We thank the Lord your spirit soared

Your final thought was wanting just to give

You conquered night to shine in dawn’s golden blush

You heal us with your awesome holy touch

 

Angel heroes above the blue blue sky

Your true love gives us the wings to fly

Up up and away into your arms again

Still our white knights now with angel wings

Shine your higher love on us and hear us sing

Angel heroes, angel heroes

Kissing you in our dreams

 

Kissing you, kissing you

Feeling you kissing us too

Kissing you, kissing you,

Feeling your love shine through

Angel heroes, angel heroes,

Kissing you in our dreams

 

I hope listening to Angel Heroes gives you goose bumps, or, as they say in Hawaii, chicken skin, as it does me. Comments?
