Song title
Even angels love to ride

v1
I found my leather jacket
That I put away for good
As I held it in my hand
Something told me that I should
V2
I wondered when this day would come
As I dusted off that bike
I could feel her presence near
First time in years this felt so right
Chorus
I could here her voice say
I loved it when we'd ride all day
The feeling of the wind,holding you so tight
The sound and the rumble from those twin pipes
I'd be talking to her,my heart filled with pride
As she whispered in my ear Angel's love to ride
v3
My mind quickly goes back when that
Truck slammed into our side
She was gone from me so fast
Yet somehow I survived
v4
So I headed for the coast
Where she loved to sit and whatch the tide
For now we are together
"cuz" even angels love to ride
Chorus
I could here her voice say
I loved it when we'd ride all day
The feeling of the wind,holding you so tight
The sound and the rumble from those twin pipes
I'd be talking to her,my heart filled with pride
As she whispered in my ear Angel's love to ride

Hey Ken,

wow, pretty cool/powerful/sad/thought provoking song.

Just a thought in v4
v4
So I headed for the coastline
I felt her arms around my side
For now we were together
"cuz" even angels love to ride

Maybe you could put
"Now we are together...alone on this ride" or something like that. Just thought it might be better to not say the Angel line again in the verse. It took a little away from me at the end of the chorus.

Just a thought.

Either way...real good.

Be Blessed!

The first verse grabs hold of you sucks you in, and you kinda get spat out at the end. I like it.

In the last verse, though, is our hero riding off to the coast now? Or, is he recalling a ride to the coast afte the accident? I think that needs to be clearer, but it doesn't stop me enjoying the lyrics.

Best,
