Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song about five years ago and recorded it a couple of years later but felt that it was too personal and kept it to myself. I finally let a couple of my friends hear it, and they persuaded me to go public. I had been unsure about general belief in this phenomenon, but after doing some internet research, discovered that it is quite widespread, and I am definitely far from alone.

Lyrics

White Feathers Fall from Heaven (Words and Music by Alan Gillis)

Verse 1
The bright eyes in your picture follow me around the room
That look you saved for me will never die
It's more than just a photograph, more than just a smile
Our love will live forever in your eyes

Verse 2
Your picture seems to talk to me, I talk right back to you
I feel you here in every breath I take
So many crying days, too many lonely nights
Wish I could hold you in my arms again

Bridge 1
They say I need more time, the pain will ease, the tears will dry
But time won't stop me missing my best friend
Living with the memories, the dreams we had, the plans we made
Love that knows no end - waiting for the messages you send

Chorus
White feathers fall from heaven, telling me you're still around
They let me know you're watching over me
White feathers fall from heaven when you know I'm really down
White feathers fall from heaven
White feathers fall from heaven to the ground

Solo

Bridge 2
I save the Angels' feathers in a box beside your photograph
A trinket box I gave you long ago
A message on the lid tells you each day's a new love story
Greater than before - Tomorrow I will love you even more

Chorus variation
White feathers fall from heaven telling me you're still around
They let me you're watching over me
White feathers fall from heaven when you know I'm really down
White feathers fall from heaven
I know they come from heaven
White feathers fall from heaven to the ground
