Irish Angel

This song is by Jonny Lang and appears on the Compilation album Touch... The Best Of Jonny Lang (2004).

In the fall of the year
She flew across the ocean
To Ireland, the land of her fathers
When we said goodbye,
A tear was in her eye
I lost her then and there
My Irish angel

The first letter came
She said she liked it there
And how much she wished
I was there with her
She wrote it on a hill in
A gentle Irish way
I saw her in my mind
My Irish angel

I wrote her back and then
There was no second letter
Just the silence of the snow
That fell around me

I let her down I know
The day I let her go
Now she's found someone else
My Irish angel

The first time I saw her
My heart went in a spin
When they speak of love
They call it falling
It was like I held my breath
Till I laid eyes on her again
So beautiful she was
My Irish angel

And when a storming glance
Lead to a storming kiss
I thought I knew the
Chance that I was taking
In all I never knew
A love as strong as this
Or what it was to feel
My own heart breaking

So now I raise the glass
And then I raise another
One to forget
One to remember
It was just a dream
Of how things could have been
If I hadn't lost my Irish angel
