100% of my proceeds from on-line digital sales of “Garden of Angels” will be donated to Sandy Hook Promise, a charity organization whose dual mandate is doing meaningful work in healing its community and effecting positive change for safer communities and a safer country.

Lyrics

A darkness fell upon us
In shock, I feel numbness
So many beautiful angels lost

No reason, no explanation
To comfort a grieving nation
So many angels lost

Now a town drenched in sorrow
In search of hope for tomorrow
While lines are drawn, fear escalates
As we struggle to keep our faith

There is a candle in the world
Midst the sickness and insanity
One flame of humanity
Waking hearts one by one
A Garden of Angels in the Sun
A tragic sacrifice
Shine their light
Be One Candle in the World

Dear Sandy Hook, Connecticut
Your strength, a love exalted
All the beautiful souls aglow

But today more weapons sold
Tomorrow's devastation told
How many more bodies to lie cold?

While your town drenched in sorrow
Leads the way with hope for tomorrow
Fear fills schools and streets
And villains scheme to deceive

There is a candle in the world
Midst the sickness and insanity
One flame of humanity
Waking hearts one by one
A Garden of Angels in the Sun
A tragic sacrifice
Shine their light
Be One Candle in the World

Midst our land of war and greed
Where young hearts die in vanity
Rising up on Angel Wings
I see new hope in wounds that bleed

Now a town drenched in sorrow
On its knees, pray for tomorrow
What will it take if not this tragedy
To stop the killing machines?

There is a candle in the world
Midst the sickness and insanity
One flame of humanity
Waking hearts one by one
A Garden of Angels in the Sun

There is a candle in the world
Midst the sickness and insanity
One flame of humanity
Waking hearts one by one
A Garden of Angels in the Sun
A tragic sacrifice
In our world wired to fight
Let Heroes everywhere
Shine their light
Be One Candle in the World

A darkness fell upon us
In shock, I feel numbness
A Garden of Angels
All aglow
