Tom Prasada-Rao: songs

When Angels Sing

(tom prasada-rao)

I wrote this at my favorite place in the world: The Kerrville Folk Festival - Songwriting Mecca. I was walking by the "Kerrtry" Store, down to the lower meadow, there were songs all around me - in front at the crossroads, behind at Camp Calm, to the right where the Rouse camp is now.

When Angels Sing / tpr

when angels sing
nothing else matters
hosannas ring
heaven descends

lovers arise
dreamers awaken
open your eyes
the day begins

it is worth remembering
every time the angels sing
dreaming of the day
where once upon a shooting star
little visions from afar
serve to light the way
and all is forgiven
all is forgiven

lost in the dark
this is your dharma
lay down your heart
on holy ground

lift up your voice
sing allelujah
angels of course
gather round

it is worth remembering
every time the angels sing
dreaming of the day
where once upon a shooting star
little visions from afar
serve to light the way
and all is forgiven
all is forgiven

om namah shivaya
om mani padme hum
om namah shivaya
om mani padme hum

when angels sing
nothing else matters
