Lena Kovadlo is a writer for various content-sharing websites. She's the author of 12 books and helps other authors publish theirs.

One of my favorite things to write besides poetry is lyrics. It would be nice to actually write the music to go along with the lyrics, but unfortunately I don't play any musical instruments so I have to resort to singing them a capella.

Usually, when I write the lyrics I tend to have some sort of melody in my head, or a way to sing the words. After writing the lyrics, I sing them to make sure the flow is great and I like how they sound. Sometimes though, I might get an idea for a lyric⁠—be it a phrase or some lines⁠—and I just go and work on expanding the idea further into a complete song. In the midst of this process I might get a melody in my head for a way to sing the song. So, even though my lyrics don't have any actual music to go along with them I still think of them as songs because they can all be sung a capella.

Writing songs is therapeutic, creative, and fun. It can be thought of as that much needed medicine but without the unwanted side effects, except maybe the tears in your eyes; but that is not a bad thing in my opinion.

I have written over 350 lyrics so far. One of them is called "Angel." I wrote it after listening to a song called "Gloomy Sunday" performed by Heather Nova. I became so inspired by that song that my song "Angel" was born. I wanted to share it with you so here it is. The lyrics are followed by a recording I did of the song on my computer so you can get an idea of the way the lyrics can be sung. I hope you enjoy the lyrics and the song.


My Lyric "Angel"

I look out the window in search of you
Watch the falling leaves floating weightlessly
And the time like a turtle crawls slowly too
As I envision you walking here endlessly
You are here

You are an angel
Hanging above me
Gracing me with your essence
Day and night
You're my protector
Here beside me
Guarding my existence
So I am all right

The rose bouquet you have given me
Still hangs from a vase dried and withering
The petals are scattered like ashes here
And the memories I hear them whispering
He is here

You are an angel
Hanging above me
Gracing me with your essence
Day and night
You're my protector
Here beside me
Guarding my existence
So I am all right

All these things in my path that remind of you
Only give my heart yearning to join you
To give up my last breath so I'm close to you
So my soul that breaks can now link with you
I'll be there

I'll be your angel
Hanging above you
Gracing you with my essence
Day and night
I'll be your protector
Here beside you
Guarding your existence
So you are all right

And when our fates align
And I'll be there with you
We'll be angels together
We'll be linked here forever
As it was meant to be
Me and you

We'll be two angels
Hanging above them
Gracing them with our essence
Day and night
We'll be their protectors
Here beside them
Guarding their existence
So they are all right

An a cappella recording I did of Angel
