There she is, standing across the room and you realize you are looking at an angel. She may be pretty. Or not. Her size, large or small, melts away. You always believed that you were attracted to a blond or brunette or something else. It doesn’t matter. In your eyes and in your heart you are looking at an angel. It’s love at first sight. Is that it? Just a glance across the room and she’s gone, never to be seen by you again. Or do you wake up one day and realize it is the 40th anniversary of your wedding to that angel? Angels are like that. Sometimes a fleeting vision and sometimes a partner for life. Love and angels hold the promise of wonderfully mysterious adventures.
I’m one of the lucky ones. The angel I saw from across the room has been my partner for life. One look and I said to myself, “SHE’S THE ONE! Now, what am I going to do? I don’t even know her name or who she is except that she’s the one. Don’t blow it!” Since that moment, every love song I have written has been for her. Without a doubt, I can say the same for my singing partner. I’m sure the love songs we write are, for him, about his lady. Love and love songs are like that. No matter how the song goes, they are always about the one you love.
Like most of the songs on Brewer and Shipley’s “Heartland” album, much of it was recorded in my home studio. The same place I’m writing this as well as the other stories on the One Toke Tom site. And it is where I create the music videos that go along with the songs. So here is another one. “I Think I Saw An Angel.” A love song for our ladies. And we hope you like it.
