Irish Angel - Jonny Lang

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 loved it there
And how much she wished
I was there with her
She wrote it on a hill
In the gentle irish rain
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
'til i laid eyes on her agian
So beatiful she was
My irish angel

And when a stolen glance
Led to a stolen kiss
I thought i knew the
Chance that i was taking
I know i never knew
A love as strong as this
Or what it was to feel
My own heart breaking

So now i raise a glass
And then i'll raise another
One to forget
One to remember
And one just to dream
Of how things could have been
If i hadn't lost my irish angel
