From the recording Angel

I dreamed this song.I had a nightmare, wherein something terrible happened that took me away from my family. I woke up and heard this song in my head. I sat at the desk, in the studio that my wife owns, for an entire day and night and I wrote, sang, and played every instrument and vocal on this. My wife put together the video, which includes some of our dearest friends. This is some of our best work. Please give a listen, and contact us if you ever need our help with one of your songs. The little Soul Shack Studio is a wonderful place. God bless.

Lyrics

Maybe I’ll become an angel
When all my earthly work is through
Maybe I’ll become an angel
So I can keep watch over you
 
I’ve always lived a hard life
I’ve done my runnin’ round
I’ve taken things I knew weren’t mine
I’ve put people in the ground
 
They say that there’s forgiveness
For even men who live like me
As I step into this last fight
God’s grace is all I need
 
Maybe I’ll become an angel
When all my earthly work is through
Maybe I’ll become an angel
So I can keep watch over you
 
And when I saw the darkest night
Still it bore a shining star
And If I can get myself back upright
I know I’ll wonder where you are
 
You’re all the hope this bad life’s shown me
You’re every good thing that I knew
Well I deserve whatever comes to me
But I can’t bear not seeing you
 
Maybe I’ll become an angel
When all these earthly bonds are loosed
I hope I become and angel
So I can keep watch over you
 
Maybe I’ll become an angel
When all my earthly work is through
I hope God lets me be an angel
So I can keep watch over you
 
I wanna be an angel
When all my earthly work is through
God, please let me be an angel
I wanna keep watch over you
