Atmospheric country-rock tune, dedicated to all those who suffer from depression and those who have lost someone due to depression. Let's talk!


You’d been hurting all your life
And no one ever knew
Just something you were born with
Was nothing you could do

You held it all inside
Until you hit the wall
Just something you were born with
That made you take that fall

Are you happy now
Are you in a better place
Did you find what you were looking for
Did you find your peace and grace

My Angel
We only had you for a while
I can’t forget your smile
My Angel
Now you’re watching from above
Looking down with love

I wish I could’ve helped
Better than I did
But it’s just something you were born with
You tried to keep it hid

Memories of the past
Those who did you harm
That’s not something you were born with
Your innocence was robbed

I hope you’re happy now
I hope you’re in a better place
I hope you found what you went looking for
A place of peace and grace

My Angel
We only had you for a while
I won’t forget your smile
My Angel
As you’re watching from above
I hope you know that you were loved
You were loved.

Horse Opera Vancouver, British Columbia

Horse Opera calls themselves Outlaw Country, but in truth, no genre can contain them - it just means they play whatever they want: rootsy Rock 'n Roll with a dash of soul, a touch of twang, a bit of blues, with punk energy and rockabilly attitude. Their sound has been compared to Blue Rodeo, Chris Isaak and the Mavericks.
