Resurrection Song, Second Version

Resurrection Song, Second Version

 

ShelleyMiller In 2004, when I was writing song lyrics, I had the good fortune to hook up with talented singer/songwriter Shelley Miller. On a shoestring, without the aid of a recording studio, she transformed my lyrics into a medium-tempo folk song, created the music, and sang my Resurrection song beautifully. In less than two weeks, she polished off the recording so I could submit it in time for the 2004 Songwriting USA contest. Shelley’s talents have continued to grow; you can check out her website at http://www.shelleymiller.net/shelleynew.html

Followers of my blog know this is the second Resurrection song I have posted here. I wrote the lyrics of both to honor my dear late friend Vic Lazzarini, the hero of my memoir Angel Hero.

 

RESURRECTION

Lyrics by Lizbeth Hartz/Music and Vocals by Shelley Miller

 

I loved you madly, did you know?

I wish I’d told you so

But both of us were shy, and I

Never dreamed that you would die

 

At the hand of a jealous friend

You never saw until the end

The hate he hid inside his mind

The lust that made him deaf and blind

 

Three days of grief, then resurrection,

I felt his bullets shatter me

And prayed to know why this should be

Three days of grief, then resurrection

Your energy shines out to me

Love connection, resurrection

 

I dreamed you died protecting me

Your spirit felt so wild and free

As you ascended into light

I plunged into the darkest night

 

It comforts me that God above

Says no man has a greater love

Than he who dies to save a friend

Could that be why your soul transcended

 

Three days of grief, then resurrection,

You fought with him and thought of me

I’ll always be your devotee

Three days of grief, then resurrection

Your energy shines out to me

Love connection, resurrection

 

On days when grief won’t set me free

I feel your love anointing me

 

Three days of grief, then resurrection,

You touch my dreams so tenderly

Your energy infuses me

Three days of grief, then resurrection

Great heart, your love still shines for me

Love connection, resurrection

Resurrection, resurrection
