Paper Angels 2008 (Single)

Released: Dec 2008

Jimmy Wayne is a sharp, skillful songwriter, especially when writing songs that tug on heartstrings. Such is the case with "Paper Angels," a song about people in need -- of both material goods, such as Christmas presents for their children, and of emotional goods like love, understanding and patience -- and how those needs seem to get amplified around the holidays. This song was originally recorded in 2003, but this kinder, gentler new version really plays to the holiday season with sleigh bells, a children's chorus and stirring string accompaniments.
