For a good family friend who passed away in 2003.

Gabriel, the churchyard seems so cold / Oh, Gabriel / I hardly feel the rain / Even though it's left a heavy stain / Gabriel / I think sometimes you're the lucky one / A thought that haunts me now / How can I live when I don't know how? / It's been five years / And I still can see the look on your face / Oh, Gabriel / There must be some mistake / When the churchyard begins to sing / You know, it's all for you / I hope you're listening / Gabriel, don't forget your wings / When the churchyard begins to sing / You know, it's all for you / I hope you're listening / Oh, Gabriel / Gabriel, oh, yeah / If you'd only let go of your wings / Then maybe you'd be here with me

Tears streamed down my face as I listened to this beautiful tune....The simple piano is so powerful....Well done....COld and lonely in Indiana.
