Angel By Your Side

Album: Hundred More Years
Artist: Francesca Battistelli

I can’t say that everything’s okay
‘Cause I can see the tears you’re crying
And I can’t promise to take the pain away
But you can know I won’t stop trying

I’ll be the angel by your side
I will get you through the night
I’ll be the strength you can’t provide on your own
‘Cause when you’re down and out of time
And you think you’ve lost the fight
Let me be the angel
The angel by your side

I know it feels like you’re running out of faith
‘Cause it’s so hard to keep believing
But if I can bring a smile back to your face
If for a moment, you’ll forget all about it


‘Cause this won’t be the last time
You’ll need a little hope
But I want to be the first to let you know

i heard this song for the first time a couple of weeks ago. it brought tears to my eyes. back in 2004 i lost my 16 year old sister stacey in a car accident. the hurt i experienced was unimagineable. since her accident i have found peace in my life by developing a relationship with jesus christ. i guess the reason this song resonated so much with me is that it reminded me of the angel i've had by my side before and after her accident. my wife alicia. if it hadn't been for her i wouldn't be where i am today. thank you lord for the angel by my side.

Love the song! My mom does too. She got sick (cancer) so I felt like the angel by her side. So I can relate to this song a lot! Thank you so much for making this song! Love it!

In the past year i have had to help care for my mother, her mind is not all here every day, good days, Bad days, i first fell in love with this is the stuff, as my plate became overloaded, then on afternoon after fighting with my mom (very bad day) i heard Angel By Your Side. Thank you it reminded me just how scary it must be to not have it all together anymore. so now this is my song for my mom. Thank you for making a hard time a little more do able..sabrina massie
