"Sleeps With Angels" as written by and Paul Durham....
She sleeps with angels way up high in the air
She sleeps with angels, she got angels in her hair.
They call her Gabrielle, from the way that she sings
Oh lover come, you ought to get you some wings.

She sleeps with angels up in the sky
Sleeping with angels you can't help but get high.
When you bag gets heavy baby, lay down your load
Get on your hands and knees and do like you been told.

You can ask for more, or ask for less
Or you can just sleep forever in that big feather bed.
With the angels in their long white robes
Sleeping with Jesus Lord, sleeping with jove.

Sleep with the angels, mama never look back
Sleep with the angels while the sky turn to black.
You can sleep under ladders, on the tracks of a train
But sleeping in the clouds won't keep you out of the rain.

    General CommentI must say... this song touches me... my mother committed suicide when I was 9 years old, and thought of things like this... I think he is writing this in a child-like way purposely. This is obviously about his mother who has passed on, and he is trying to think happily even though her suicide was wrong, and she was taking the easy way out... hence:
    "sleep with the angels mama never look back.
    sleep with the angels while the sky turn to black.
    you can sleep under ladders on the tracks of a train.
    but skeeping in the clouds won't keep you out of the rain"
