about

This song was inspired by my grandfather who I remember teaching me as a child to pray to my guardian angel.
He was a very serious minded man, a principle and a lover of logic but also a man of great faith.
These are things we taught to believe are incongruous to the modern mind... I get tempted to believe that as fact. But the memory of him forces me to question it and I believe always will.

lyrics

MICHAEL

I used to hear my angel come,

When I was just a little one,

and I was told to ask his name.

Michael came with me to school and

minded me through the day,

but as I grew, I never knew,

if he went away.

Michael, are you with me?

as I grow old,

will you promise to stay?

Now I have my own babies,

so do I tell them it is so?

when I really don't know,

Anything at all.

Michael are you with me?

as I grow old,

will you promise to stay?

about

Anna Cordell Melbourne, Australia

Melbourne singer Anna Cordell plays tender yet deceptively complex folk music that belies a
childhood spent learning the piano, guitar and musical theory. Her voice is rich and warm yet lyrically her music is filled with angst and conflict, a emotional impact heightened by her penchant for the minor key.

"when you hear her you know you are listening to something very special ..."
