Song Description

A young woman struggling with her addiction and her faith.

Story Behind the Song

I lost some good friends along the way.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Nice arrangement. I like the way you mixed up all the different instruments. You place stops at just the right places. Good dynamics. Good job, keep it up.

dark melody, good harmonies.

Lyrics

She broke in to St. Michaels and kneeled before the cross
She was hoping for redemption, regain what she had lost

She had walked a road where everything was known
Knocked down by failed reason sinking like a stone
Faith was a stranger hanging on a cross
The tally done her every action had a cost
Like me and the Angel I had lost

Tears mixed with prayers, to wash down the bricks
She was rounding the rosary, guilt and fear just don't mix

With every lie the dragon wailed, a suffering soul and way too pale
Weighted down with darkened chains, only the pain remains

She had walked a road where everything was known
Knocked down by failed reason sinking like a stone
Faith was a stranger hanging on a cross
The tally done her every action had a cost
Like me and the Angel I had lost

We were hiding from the storm; we denied what was on the way
The needle dreams took her today no reason for a life she threw away

Every choice she made pushed her further down
The habit she wore just made her look the clown
Juggling prayers afraid of what judgment waits
A self -made leper patiently waiting by the gate
Like me and the Angel I had lost
