Cover Me

Featuring the amazing Natalie Gond

"Cover Me" is a rockin' reggae number that lets French-American soprano Natalie Gond shine. She's been with me a long time, and with her classical music background combined with a natural gift for the blues, Natalie's the perfect candidate for the music that I aspire to in Peace Oratorio. I needed a rocker to end Act 1, and "Cover Me" fit the bill. The bridge on this song has a series of chromatic descending 7th chords in the choir and the keys as the soloist sings about these crazy angels that make gold threads from invisible spider webs to protect our hero in the cold harsh streets of reality. Rock on!

COVER ME 

These wings of gold, Ooh

Comin’ down to cover me 

Ye wings of old, Ooh

comin’ to me like a dream 

Oh life is short, Ooh

Go by faster than light

Yet ye go on, Ooh

Shinin’ in the ray of night 

With wings of gold

Cover me

Ye wings of old

Cover me, Come cover me 

These streets are cold, Ooh

Try to find a place to be 

I feel so old, Ooh

Won’t you come on down and cover me? 

With wings of gold

Cover me

Ye wings of old

Cover me, Come cover me 

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh 

Solo/ Bridge :  They come floatin’ down, they’re all around

Just over your head at the top of your bed

A little lullaby from a night fly,

Spinnin’ a web for some new threads

Cover me, Cover, Cover Me, Cover me

Cover me, Cover, Cover Me, Come Cover me

Oh give my soul, Ooh

Three precious things

 Love, Joy, Vision, Ooh

Won’t you come on down and cover me

These wings of gold, Ooh

Comin’ down to cover me

Ye wings of old, Ooh

Comin’ to me like a dream

With wings of gold

Cover me

Ye wings of old

Cover me

With wings of gold

Cover me

Ye wings of old

Cover me, Come cover me 

Cover me, Cover Me, Cover Me, Come Cover me (Ad Libs)

With your wings of gold (4x)

Ye wings of old, Oh ye wings of old,

Come and cover me, come on and cover me,

Won’t you please, please cover me,

 With your wings of gold, 

Cover me, Cover Me, Cover Me, Come Cover me 

Ahh, (softly) Ooh
