Fallen Angel

It’s a long way down below
It’s a long way back up to the world you used to know
Don’t be afraid, I’m here
To chase away all your fears
Fallen Angel

Look up, Look down
Nowhere to be found
Chasing after a fallen angel
They run too fast
don’t think it will last
Chasing after a fallen angel

I could stop or I could run
but he wouldn’t find that fun
He’ll outrun me to the end
but he’ll always be my best friend
Fallen Angel

Who are we today, tomorrow?
Who are we to drown our sorrow?
Who are we to throw you out?
amid ‘spicion, amid doubt
Who are you to turn away?
just in time to miss the day
Who are we to fight this war
Why can’t we just soar away?

Look up, Look down
Nowhere to be found
Chasing after a fallen angel
He captured her heart,
but we don’t know where to start
Chasing after a fallen angel


My oldest daughter wrote this song in her early teens, and on a whim we whipped up a sketch of it in the studio. So began the first of several fun recordings of songs by my kids. I was invited by Beth to accompany her when she sang it at her High School talent night – so it’s got great memories.
