More a New Year Song than a Christmas song, because it's aimed at the coming year with a hope that there WILL be peace soon. Hope you like this song.... more bells, but ringing in a year of happiness for all I sincerely hope, M

Lyrics
If There Are Angels

We are told that there are angels,
We are told they’re all around.
Helping lift us when we’re weary,
Lifting us to higher ground.

While this world is full of danger,
While our eyes with tears are filled,
We must raise that still small voice that lives within,
To ask for peace, our lives to fill.
Chorus.
Now I don’t know if there are Angels,
Or if Heaven is above,
All I know is we should sing with just one voice,
So this world will fill with love.

When we celebrate this New Year,
Pray we’ll celebrate with peace,
Then, if truly there are Angels,
They’ll bring love to never ever cease.

Repeat chorus.
Repeat last verse and last line.

Maurice Vizard.

you say the kindest thing, but if you wait a little longer I might truly be an Angel LOL. Really pleased you gave this a listen (2nd listen for me today from you, so thanks too for that), thanks so much.... I had wondered if it was a bit too slow, but I think the speed suits the song, since it's about peace, best regards M

Glad you like this. Your mention of my vocal does me a world of good too LOL. I did wonder whether I should put it under 'Holiday' since I'd already done a Holiday song since it's really to do with New Year... I suppose though it's still in the Holiday period, regards M

paul f. page said 2719 days ago (December 12th, 2009)
My two cents:
The chord changes are really striking, Maurice. Just beautiful and lush. You KNOW how to write a song and don't disappoint with this beautiful homage to peace. Thank you for this lovely song.
(Oh, the opening orchestration is airy and wonderfully angelic!!! Really brought me into the number. And the instrumental bridge is perfectly placed in the timing of the whole number.)
Peace...May it "never ever cease."

That's very kind of you, but I thought for a minute you were going to say 'Resident Angel" LOL As Magnatone would have you believe LOL. Actually the song came pretty quickly, but it was the production that kept me on my toes; though I know it's still not perfect it's about as good as I can get it. I'm very pleased that you liked it so much, so thank you for those nice words, best egards M

Lovely song! It reminded me of the end of New Years Eve...party hats, horns, ballons, and confetti litter the dance floor. A couple in love, (one in a tux!) holding each other swaying to the last dance of New Years Eve.
