Geri Halliwell releases heartfelt song “Angels in chains” in memory of George Michael

Geri Halliwell penned a touching new song for her late friend George Michael, who died on Christmas Day last year at his home in Oxfordshire.
Called “Angels in chains”, the track is a brilliant and poignant ballad produced by Chris Porter with lyrical references to George’s songs “Freedom” and “Faith”, as well as his untimely death.
About the song, Halliwell said: “I believe in times of trouble and difficult times, we find out two things: What we’re made of, and who our friends are. My relationship with George started out as a fan, but every time I had a little bit of difficulty he stepped up for me. When I left the Spice Girls, I went to live with him. I stayed for a long time. Also when I had my first child, I went to live with him. He was really sweet and kind to me.”
She added: “I’d always go around his house and play songs I was writing, asking what he’d think. Sometimes he’d tell me it was good, and sometimes he’d tell me ‘Ooh, that needs work’. He’d always tell me to leave space for evolution as an artist. I really admired him in so many ways”.
“Angels in chains” is available to buy on iTunes and proceeds from the sale of the single will benefit one of the Wham! singer’s favorite charities: Child Line.

Lyrics:

Every young gun has their fun
The brightest star burns half as long
Who knows why the good die young?
I wonder where you’ve gone
Could’ve been gone tomorrow
Could’ve walk through the sorrow

But you left us singing
Heal the pain (ooh)
We’re all angels in chains (ooh)
Looking back, the aftermath
Still burning from the pain
We say goodbye
It’s time to heal the pain

George, your faith will never end
(You gotta have faith)
Father figure, brother, friend
(Understand me)
dying to belong
I wonder where you’ve gone
The world can be cold and cruel
but we’re not a fool

You left us singing
Heal the pain (ooh)
We’re all angels in chains (ooh)
Looking back, the aftermath
Still burning from the pain
We say goodbye
To a star tonight
It’s time to heal

Something here came to teach us
This love will always reach us in the end

Heal the pain (heal the pain)
We’re all angels in chains (angels in chains)
You’re not to blame (heal the pain)
We’re all angels in chains (ooh)
Looking back, the fun we had
It’s freedom that you gave (freedom)

Say goodbye
You’re a star tonight
It’s time to heal the pain
