You Tube - Perfect Angel...NOW AVAILABLE on De’s NEW album ‘I feel small’


Perfect Angel was written for an amazing little girl by the name of Miette Skiller, I first heard about Miette on Facebook when I stumbled onto her Journey page and I was so touched with what I read I made it a point to check in every few days to see how things were going.  I often read the posted blogs and was so very moved by what i had read that I started writing down how I was feeling. A song started to formulate and then I read that Miette had passed away, so the song needed to be written.  The song was finished on Saturday 13th April 2013, and on Sunday (the 14th) I asked 3 good friends of mine who are all amazing musicians if they would help me record it so I could send it to Miette's family, and they all agreed.  So on Monday 15th April 2013, Myself, Dave Evans (bass), Josh Schuberth (drums) and Angus Woodhead (piano) who were all in different places set about to record in our own studios our track and finally dropbox it all to me to take to Angus' studio for mixing and mastering.  It was a hard song to sing because of the emotion and after about 80 takes with crying in at least 77 of them, I finally got it ok...And I can say there wasn't a dry eye with the others when they were recording their parts either...When it all got put together I was blown away by the result, it was so perfect for a Perfect Angel.

Lyrics

Perfect Angel (Miette's Song) © De Greer-Yindimincarlie 2013


My heart aches as I think of you; I'm overcome by sadness, but my heart smiles as I remember you.
The most beautiful sunrise was rising as you grew your wings, and you had rainbows in your hair. Rainbows in your hair.


I knew this day would come, the pain it will never pass, I'll remember sandcastles and kites in the air.
This pouring rain is draining, and we watch as you crumble, our sadness echoes everywhere, echoes everywhere.


Sometimes Angels need to do their work from heaven, although this world feels like a different place.
You have touched hearts and souls from all round the world,
grow your wings and fly high with the rest.

And we know you'll make the perfect angel, perfect angel.


Surrounded by family, I carried you one last time and we watched as you were driven away.
Our beautiful angel, spread your wings and fly high, and share the beauty of your soul. The beauty of your soul.


Sometimes Angels need to do their work from heaven, although this world feels like a different place.
You have touched hearts and souls from all round the world, grow your wings and fly high with the rest.

And we know you'll make the perfect angel, perfect angel. Perfect angel.
