Behind every song is a story. If you think of your favorite song for a second, once the lyrics come to mind, you probably have a pretty good idea of what the song is about. Some songs are happy and upbeat but others are darker and are sad. But what about if the songs are like my songs, and are instrumental only? Since there are no words, it could be open to interpretation. What one person “sees” in their mind while listening to one of my songs could be completely different from someone else. Most people have told me that my songs sound very reflective to them, and they usually end up thinking about their own life, or different things or people from their past.
Each one of my songs means something different to me though. Sometimes it’s not very specific and is more about a feeling about something going on in my life. The song “Angel” is no different. When I was writing this song I was thinking about how blessed I am that I have always had good people in my life that were always there for me. I have a great family and a few very close friends that I love very much. I was thinking about them when I wrote this song, and how they’ve helped me stay positive (or at least try to) when things get me down. I tend to internalize everything and never really tell anyone how I feel about things when I’m upset (I know. That’s bad). But there’s a few people in my life who know me so well that it’s almost like they can read my mind, and they try to help me feel better. So, in a way, they kind of save me. Like an angel would. Hence the name of the song.
If you know me and you’re reading this, you know who you are 🙂 Thank you for always being there for me. I don’t know what I would do without you guys.
“Angel” will be available for streaming here on this blog December 1 and available for download exclusively from cdbaby.
