Angels Don`t Do Anything
on: November 01, 2019, 18:02:05
In gratitude for the better angels  in my life who stick around:praise:



    Angels Don`t Do Anything

almost out of chances allowed
to read your tattoed soul
getting close enough to know
your masterpeice of art
will break someone`s heart

take a train to become invisible
lose yourself in the blur
in stations of the waiting world
a girl`s unforgettable face
returning you to grace

angels
angels don`t do anything
angels are just there
oceans in their eyes
making hard truth and lies
easier to bear

man in the torn straw hat
beside you as you fight against the crowd
whispers can sound so loud
did he say was it a dream
over here step outside stream

nights you try to make more light
burning rights with wrongs on a pyre
standing all around the fire
children who never lost faith
in promises you made

angels
angels don`t do anything
angels are just there
oceans in their eyes
making hard truth and lies
easier to bear
oceans in their eyes
making hard truth and lies
easier to bear

This is just beautiful. Wonderfully full acoustic guitar playing provides a perfect vehicle for these excellent lyrics.

You sing this song with strength and emotion....just an excellent production all around.

Hola @robertkc

You have made a very emotional song, the sound of the instruments gives a nostalgia full of landscape, and the lyrics, full of calm within the sadness...

Beautiful lyrics and guitar.....post "stations of the waiting world" sounded a bit like a slack key riff.

When the steel guitar came in my heart lifted to heaven and I saw the angels you were talking about. Beautiful song.

@Dutchbeat  Thanks for those thumbs up!
@Leonard Scaper Good to hear you liked this one ... there are so many angel songs out there I tried to take a different tack without losing the good things the word evokes.
@Mora Amaro La Loba I like your description and appreciate those thoughts.
@Kolohe I sure wish I could really write a slack key tune! Thanks for your listen and comments.
@IsleofSkye  That`s very kind - I love that spacey pedal steel too.

Robert

Wow @robertkc  this is awesome! A lyrical masterpiece and very uniquely beautiful and unsettling with those five line verses and nine line choruses ... wow!
Good show!

What a very beautiful thing youíve made.
Lyrics wise, the uneven length and uneven amount of sentences.
And the way you sing is the living proof that screaming is totally unnecessary for conveying emotion.
Iíve hammered the heart on SC 5 times for pure enthusiasm. Not that it helped of course.
What an incredible level of beautiful things are posted in the Kitchen lately.

Maybe I should take this at heart and give more consideration to beauty and do less 1, 2, 3, 4 hit it.
But thatís not about you/your music.
This song of yours stands out, wherever it is played. And I hope it will be played a lot and in all the right places.
Log may you run, @robertkc !
Kind regards, Gus

You've had a good year musically @robertkc ... and this one continues the run.
People often talk of song-writers as being a special breed and you my friend are one of them.

They do limit my enthusiasm.
5 times hammering equals 1 heart.
Annoying, but hammering doesn't help much.

Beautiful song @robertkc - great lyrics, very emotional vocals that suit the song.

And I also really like the acoustic playing.

The pedal steel though is what makes it for me!

cheers
