Hall Of Angels Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

We stayed at the barroom till closing
I held down a place at his side
And drank to the memory that crushed him
A lady who'd loved him and died

He purely could not find a reason
To get it back up and go on
Then out of the dark came a stranger
Who turned us around with a song

He said: I know the pain that youi're feeling
I had a sweet little girl
And I loved her more than her mother
Or anything else in the world

And sure as I loved her I lost her
Sure as I wanted to die
Then I had a dream or a vision
Of wonder that opened my eyes

I dreamed of a young band of angels
That shone like the stars from above
'Cos each had a bright bruning candle
Except for the angel I loved

And I asked why their candles were burning
And why that hers wasn't the same
She said: Oh, Daddy, each time that I try to light it
Your tears just keep drowning the flame

We stared at the stranger in silence
His spirit was truly alive
If life had made his eyes glisten
The diamond was bright in his eye

'Cos everyone who ever loved him
Though fortune had torn them apart
Will live in the Hall of the Angels
As long as the love in his heart

Oh they'll live in the Hall of The Angels
As long as the love in your heart
