Becky posted "Soldier's Call" on lyrics' forum on Songramp and I loved her moving lyric. I was so happy when Becky agreed for me to compose music to it. Here is our song. Both Becky and me are very grateful to Gemma for her beautiful singing and Billy for his amazing orchestral score, demo and playing all the orchestral instruments!
A Soldier’s Call

V1
My eyes filled up with tears
When I heard them on the phone
They said he was a hero
But he won’t be coming home
I’m sorry for my selfish need
To want him here with me
I’m sure that where he is now
Is a better place to be

Chorus:

In the midst of heavy fighting, someone called his name
It must have been an angel; he’s feeling no more pain
His spirit drifts above the clouds, no more need to fight
The angels came to lead him into the shining light

V2

His life had much more meaning
With pride in his uniform
He saved the broken and bleeding
And braved the enemy storm
This group of men like brothers
Came against a fire wall
He had to save the others
It was a soldier’s call

Chorus

In the midst of heavy fighting, someone called his name
It must have been an angel; he’s feeling no more pain
His spirit drifts above the clouds, no more need to fight
The angels came to lead him into the shining light

The heavens opened for him, to wait there for us all
Because the angels answered this fallen soldiers call.

This is such a delicious song! I'm so happy that I discovered the music of Nadia Cripps. She always surprises me, either solo or in her collaborations with other artists. And most of all, I'm delighted to be one of these collaborating artists. :-)
