Donna Boyd: My Music

Angels Fly Close To The Ground

(Donna Boyd)
(Music & Lyrics by: Donna Boyd / David Carter / Merelyn Carter © 2005)

V1:
It's the little ordinary things
Like biscuits kept in shiny tins
Seem to be the things I miss the most
Like open fires and ginger cakes
The pride that always lit her face
When I'd sing a song
She'd sing along and smile

V2:
A heart can break a thousand ways
I learnt this at an early age
She always found the words to make it right
Not all rainbows end in pots of gold
But every rainbow holds its own
Story to tell
And she knew it well
And now I know

Ch:
Angels fly close to the ground
They give us wings to fly
High above the storm clouds in our lives
Angels touch hearts when they're down
They give us strength to try
When you feel you've had enough
Like giving up
Look around
I hope you'll find an Angel
Flying close to the ground

SOLO

Bridge:
I know you'll always be beside me
To walk along my road and guide me
You're the strength I need to carry on

Ch:
Angels fly close to the ground
They give us wings to fly
High above the storm clouds in our lives
Angels touch hearts when they're down
They give us strength to try
When you feel you've had enough
Like giving up
Look around
I hope you'll find an Angel
I hope you find your Angel
I hope you find an Angel
Flying close to the ground

It's the little ordinary things
