"Angel" as written by Mariah Carey, Christopher A. Stewart and James Quenton Wright....
She lived like she knew nothing lasts
Didn't care to look like anyone else
And she was beautiful, so beautiful
I still hear her laugh like she's here

Shower it down on all the young
It isn't so wrong to have such fun

Forever angel
I hope they love yo like we do
Forever angel
I'll be proud to be like you
Be like you
(I'll be proud to be like you)

Does the sun shine up at you when you are looking down?
Do you get along with the others around?

It's got to be better than before
You don't need to worry now you're gone

Forever angel
I hope they love yo like we do
Forever angel
I'll be proud to be like you
Be like you
Just like you

And when i go to sleep at night
I'll thank you for each blessed thing sorrounding me
For every fall I'll ever break
Each moment`s breath I want to taste
Confidence and conscience
Decadent extravagance
Never ending providence
For loving when I had the chance

Forever angel
I hope they love yo like we do
Forever angel
I'll be proud to be like you
Forever angel
I'll be proud to be like you
Forever angel
I'll be proud to be like you

    General CommentI herad this sond for the first time when I went to a Corrs concert in Vienna. Four days later my grandmother, who'd been like a mother to me, died, and it has been "my grandmother's song" for me ever since...
    It's my favourite Corrs song, because it reminds me of her everytime I hear it.
    Beautiful.

    General CommentLovely song, reminds me of a close friend who died 2 years ago - the lyrics really describe her. Does anyone know if this song is actually based on a real person?

    General Commentthis song is so sad and beautiful. I love the fact that they (The Corrs) are, in this song, like celebrating their mother's life instead being crying because of her death.

    It's beautiful how they express the proud they had of her and how they love her.
