Hey guys. So in September, a friend of mine had a baby who sadly passed away at only 9 days old. Because i'm really bad with talking about emotional things, I sat down with my guitar that evening and this song just wrote itself. I played it at the Thanksgiving for Life service we had at our church. I then decided to get it professionally recorded to raise money for charity!

Hands so small
eyes still closed
helpless and unknowing

You are loved
beyond belief
you set our hearts aglowing

Baby girl you stole our hearts
You'll forever be remembered
We know you're safe with Jesus now
In a beautiful place called Heaven
You were taken far too soon
We wish we could've helped you
But we'll see you again someday
In a beautiful place called Heaven

Button nose tiny toes
all wrinkley and new
you'll hold a place
in our hearts
until again we see you

Baby girl you stole our hearts
You'll forever be remembered
We know you're safe with Jesus now
In a beautiful place called Heaven
You were taken far too soon
We wish we could've helped you
But we'll see you again someday
In a beautiful place called Heaven

But we'll see you again someday
In a beautiful place called Heaven

Beautiful song, Alice.

When the harmonies first came in I caught my breath a little......those harmonies seem to gather up all that emotion and let it go free.

It must have been a powerful thing performing it like that.

Hey @acoustic-alice ,  how sad.. I'm sorry for the friend of yours..
I love this song, OMG you can sing.. I keep telling you that over and over again.. It's a beautiful recording and production.. The two voices (wow to your buddy's voice as well) sound perfect and I love the instrumental as well. Goosebumps here..
Well done Alice!

Just chiming back in because I am listening in my studio now.

This is an excellent recording and mix. Your voice sounds amazing and the accompanying tone of the guitar is perfect to my ears. All those added instruments are so complementary as well.

The song ended as I was writing this and I am playing it again.

Hey @acoustic-alice - I'm with the others, fantastic vocal performance as always but great to hear a professional production of your singing much as I love to see and hear you play in your to-camera pieces.


Great that you could express your and your friend's loss in this way and I'm sure she appreciates it - assuming she shares your religious beliefs, this song must be very comforting for her and I'm sure she appreciates how important she and her daughter are to you for you to have written this.

Just a beautiful song Alice and such a sad thing to happen.

Your voice and your friends work so well together and your words are extremely emotional and powerful.

It's also really nice to hear your voice recorded like this - it always sounds great of course but it's at another level on this one.
