Story Behind The Song
I got in touch with Alan about a possible collaboration in the future, and he was also considering trying a collaboration. He hadn't done one since 1964!
He sent me some lyrics to 'Face of an Angel' and i added a few lyric changes and come up with a melody, which Alan then altered slightly to suit his style.
I was pleased to help Alan with this, he had the harder part of singing and recording it :-)
I think it's a great song..hope you enjoy it. Thanks!

Face of an Angel (by Alan Gillis and Darren Gibbons)
I'm gonna chop down the tree where I carved your name
Burn every mem'ry that still remains
My friends all told me you must be losing your head
Keep away from that girl or you'll wish you were dead
They were right, I can't fight it. All my senses are dead
I can't sleep any more, no use going to bed
'til I've wiped her memory right out of my head
Tell me woman are you some kind of witch
Destroying lives just for kicks?
With your negative heart and your evil design
And the face of an angel to hide behind.
Never thought any woman could hurt me this way
I'll love her and hate her 'til my dying day
My friends all told me that girl will do you no good
I didn't believe them - I misunderstood
