"She Sang Angels to Rest" as written by and Richard Thompson....
She charmed me from my cocoon
She eclipsed the sun and the moon
All that summer my feet never walked on the earth

She sang angels to rest
She sang angels to rest
How do you fall when you already fell for the best

She had that smile on her face
When her thoughts were some other place
All that summer my feet never walked on the earth

She sang angels to rest
She sang angels to rest
How do you fall when you already fell for the best

She had that look in her eyes
Like she'd seen a ghost in the sky
All that summer my feet never walked on the earth

She sang angels to rest
She sang angels to rest
How do you fall when you already fell
How do you love when your heart isn't well
How do you fall when you already fell for the best

    General CommentAngels sing children to sleep. What kind of woman would be able to sing an angel to rest?

    This evokes a love affair of only a few weeks. She doesn't speak much. She's often in another world. No chemical assistance is needed, it's who she is. The songwriter was smitten with her, but no one believed it could last.
