'CHASER' made R&R Hall Of Fame DJ Meg Griffin's 'TOP 10 CDs of The Year' .

'IF I WAS AN ANGEL'' was the most played radio tk off 'CHASER', & the band have performed it live on WFUV many times.

IF I WAS AN ANGEL (Hurley-JF)

"Of the many facets that Hurley and company reveal on this extremely eclectic disc, the gentle passion that's illustrated on "If I Was an Angel" is the album's most striking composition."

NEW YORK POST 'CDs Of The Week'


"Listening to CHASER, you'll be struck by by the vivid imagery and rough poetic quality of Hurley's songs. On the waltz "If I Was an Angel", Kenny Margolis' accordion lifts up some stark-yet-tender lyrics by Hurley.
"If I was an angel, I'd save you like Moses,,From drifting down rivers of pawnshops and poses, You'd carry the weight of a hundred dead roses, and still carry on," Hurley sings convincingly."

IRISH VOICE


"You'll hear Hurley's prowess as a songwriter and storyteller: The burnt-out subject of "This Town", the lost soul in the hushed ballad "If I Was an Angel", the thief sent away in 'Clear' (based on a real-life boyhood friend of Hurley's who wound up on the wrong side of the law)"

"IF I WAS AN ANGEL" Lyrics by Joe Hurley

"If I was an angel, I'd hold you real tight
Keep you in my arms, bathe you in light
With a long winter coat you'd sleep in at night
And Sweet Easy Dreams

I'd show you the things that made you once care
A match in a schoolyard, a night on the tear
The Trembling kiss of your first love affair
If I was an angel

Angel, what was your name
How can I recall, the days before the fall
I'm lost and I'm alone
This living's got me thrown
Help me get home, do this for me

If I was an angel, I'd save you like Moses
From drifting down rivers of pawnshops and poses
You'd carry the weight of a hundred dead roses
And still carry on

If I was an angel, your love she'd be true
With a heart like a lion, and only for you
Get you crying with laughter on the days when you're blue
If I was an angel

Angel, watch over me, dont ever set me free,
dont ever let me go
I'm lost and I'm alone, this living's got me thrown,
Help me get home, do this for me, do this for me

Angel, what was your name
How can I recall, the days before the fall
I'm lost and I'm alone
This living's got me thrown
Help me get home, Do this for me,
Do this for me...Do this for me"
