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 again
So beautiful 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
