ADRIFT (Song for Angela)

Get Flash to see this player.

I need to tell the world

5 years ago I broke up with the love of my life, a certain woman by the name of Angela, I never thought I would hear from her again, until, one day out of the blue came a friend request from her on Facebook. A few tentative messages passed between us & that was it. Well, life & fate intervened & we soon both realised we could not be without each other any more & the last 5 years apart had been torture for both of us, with, each other constantly in the thoughts of each other without either of us knowing.

Unfortunately there is quite a distance between us at the moment, but, she IS going to be finally coming back to me once again. It may be a few months off so there are going to be some lonely moments for both of us I’m sure, & long periods of wanting, she cannot believe that I am prepared to wait for her but wait I will, after all I have waited for 5 years so a few more months won’t matter, all I know is that she is coming back to me. From the very first day that I met her I had always felt the need to love & care for her.

I hope you enjoy it a bit more though now you know the story behind it.

A big thank you to James for his music & love goes out to Caz & Lisa for their divine interference on Facebook!!!! thank you xx

ADRIFT (Song For Angela)
Lyrics by Billy Attwell © 2009

Five years ago
It felt like my life had ended
But now, your back
It’s allright

I was adrift for so long
Sailing a lonely sea
I was adrift
For so long
But now love is in sight
Now love is in sight
Your love is in sight
Our love is in sight
This love is in sight
You’re comin’ back to me
You’re comin’ back to me

You set me asail
On a cold Winters night
A shooting star for my guide
Was chilled right through to my bones on that night
As I set my course for alone
I was lost in the dark, which way was home?
Heavy skies lay ahead


I thought about you every day
Since that fateful storm altered our course
Never thought you’d drift my way
When out of the blue.....a message from you
Declared your love for me
& to your surprise
I felt the same about you
I felt the same about you
I felt the same about you

valerie bertinelli will be in the movie version...
the best stories are the cheesy ones, thats the stuff that keeps us getting up in the morning. anyway cool tune. I like the almost country end of the chorus, it makes for a nice contrast with the shoegazing. also like the syntax and phrasing in the verse, reminds me of the housemartins for some odd reason. You ought to allow downloading, i'd enjoy hearing this on the ipod walking to work.
