"Angels In Waiting" as written by and Tammy Lynn/mcbride Cochran....
We camped out on the living room floor,
in our old sleeping bags, by a make-believe fire.
In a tent made of covers, we talked for hours
My two brother and me.
Keeping the faith; racing with destiny.

They were angels in waiting.
Waiting for wings to fly from this world,
Away from their pain
Treasuring time, til time came to leave,
Leaving behind sweet memories.
Angels in waiting; angels in waiting for wings.

They always knew they? never grow old.
Sometimes the body is weaker than the soul.
In their darkest hour, I made a promise
I will always keep:
I?l give them life; I?l let them live through me.

They were angels in waiting.
Waiting for wings to fly from this world,
Away from their pain
Treasuring time, til time came to leave,
Leaving behind sweet memories.
Angels in waiting; angels in waiting for wings.
Angels in waiting; angels in waiting for me.

They were angels in waiting.
Waiting for wings to fly from this world,
Away from their pain
Treasuring time, til time came to leave,
Leaving behind sweet memories.
Angels in waiting; angels in waiting for wings.
Angels in waiting; angels in waiting for me.

    General CommentUgh. I like this song, but every time I hear it, I think of my younger brother. He's the kind of guy that always does the kind of stupid stuff that you know is going to get him killed one day, so this song really depresses me ! :(

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song. Over the last few years I've lost many friends. But each one I know is now in Heaven watching over me and all the ones they love. This song means a lot to me.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song. It reminds me of my brother so much. Both of my brothers, my oldest died in a car crash... but i remember sleeping out on the living room floor w/ both of them, and the tents that he had made for us. He'd also make me lil cardboard-box cars to play w/. He's the best, i love and miss him so much. But i know he's in Heaven, smileing down. He's watching over me, he loved and still loves me. I loved and love him still. This song is amazing how much memories it brought to me about my wonderful oldest brother. I thank Tammy Cocchran for this song, it is one of my favories along w/ Angel by Sarah McLachlan.

    General CommentThis song is really beautiful and a wonderful tribute to lost love ones. The meaning of this song is quite simple, its about the two brothers Tammy Cochran lost to Cystic Fibrosis.

    General CommentThis song brought tears to my eyes. My friend Dakota is only 15 and has to have a liver transplant because of Cystic Fibrosis. This is a beautiful and meaningful song to anyone who has CF or a loved one with CF.
