CLEVELAND --  Alex Bevan is no stranger to the Northeast Ohio music scene.  But the shooting incident in Chardon two weeks ago struck a deep chord. 

The night after the shooting, he woke up and started writing lyrics to a song he felt compelled to write.  It's called "Brittle Winds."  For Bevan, music is a way to process and heal.  He hopes the song may do the same for the community of Chardon.

Brittle Winds

When sad angels learn to fly
In brittle winds of an iron sky
No church bell rings the welcome tone
Just tired pilgrims coming home

What is gone is gone
What's lost is what is lost
Innocence spilled...
Such dreadful cost
No rhyme, no reason... it's safe to say
Nothing finds the easy way

When sad angels learn to fly
In brittle winds of an iron sky
No church bell rings the welcome tone
Just tired pilgrims coming home

The severed tendon
The fatal flaw
From dark intention
To shock and awe
A parent's loss
The tearstained face
The withheld comfort
Of amazing grace

When sad angels learn to fly
In brittle winds of an iron sky
No church bell rings the welcome tone
Just tired pilgrims coming home

To leave behind the blood and stone
Too soon they gather... too soon to go

The sacrifice here is their's alone......
Grace and mercy
Are the gifts revealed
But soiled and dirty
Is how I feel
After all these prayers
For those distant souls
The dirt's not here
To fill these holes

When sad angels learn to fly
In brittle winds of an iron sky
No church bell rings her welcoming tone
Just tired pilgrims
...............tired pilgrims
           ...............tired pilgrims
                                             coming home..........
                                                             coming home..........
