about

This song discusses the metaphysical reality of our guardian angels and how the world beyond keeps us safe on earth. Various musical and vocal sections feature a combination of pop, new wave, church hymn stylings, and a touch of 1950s rock n roll ambience as well, with the classical choir ending featuring lush 5-6 part vocal harmonies.

lyrics

Guardian angel, guardian dear
To whom his love commits me here
Ever this day be at my side
To light and guard, to rule and guide, amen

There is an angel
Flying above
With fine white wings
Does she know?
He will protect her
From pain or harm
When she's asleep
He will watch

Late at night
She's alone
Then she cries
Nothing can harm you ‘cause he will be there

You will always have a guardian angel
(Ah, ah, ah, ah)
Look above and see your guardian angel
(Ah, ah, ah, ah)
He’ll watch
He guards with his white wings
As you’re sleeping

He is so strong
Stronger than men
He guards the street
When she walks

From the car
To the door
ln the house
Nothing can harm you ‘cause he will be there

You will always have a guardian angel
(Ah, ah, ah, ah)
Look above and see your guardian angel
(Ah, ah, ah, ah)
He’ll watch
He guards with his white wings
As you’re sleeping

Now I lay me down to sleep tonight
Guardian angel, fly above my bed

ln the dark
Don’t be scared
Just sleep tight
Nothing can harm you ‘cause he will be there

You will always have a guardian angel
(Ah, ah, ah, ah)
Look above and see your guardian angel
(Ah, ah, ah, ah)
He’ll watch
He guards with his white wings
As you’re sleeping

Now I lay me down to sleep tonight
Guardian angel, fly above my bed
lf I die, make sure I fly above
Guardian angel, guard my soul
And watch me as I sleep all night
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah,
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
