“Angela’s Song” long version now available (UPDATED)

Thanks to YouTube user Alfonso MartzG who shared the long version (2:30) of “Angela’s Song”. The guy does not mention the source but the animated short film was released yesterday on Netflix so…

Rest with me
We’ll be warm and free to dream
Of all the things yet to come
For you my little one

Look up high and see
All the stars above you and me
They shine a light on all the things to come
For you my little one

Stay with me
Forget the cold streets of Limerick city
Let’s drift away and sing our song
And dream on and on

Lay with me
Let us sing a sweet melody
Of all the things yet to come
For you my little one

Look up high and see
All the stars above you and me
They shine a light on all the things to come
For you my little one

Look up high and see
All the stars above you and me
They shine a light on all the things to come
For you my little one


UPDATE – 4:55 PM (UTC)

Source is indeed Netflix. Compared to the RTÉ’s broadcast in 2017, the end credits are now scrolling slowly and we can hear the full version of the song (or more likely, this is the normal speed and RTÉ had deliberately broadcast a speed up version). Anyway this is a Netflix exclusive!
