"Carrickfergus" as written by Simon Franglen, Katherine Jenkins and Traditional,....
I wish I was in carrickfergus
Where the castle looks out to sea.
I would swim over the deepest ocean
For my love to be with me.
But the sea is wide and I can not swim over
Nor have I the wings to fly
I wish I had a handsome boatman,
To ferry me over, my love and i.

I wish I was in the land of arak,
Where the mountains reach the sea.
Where flowers blossom as I do remember.
Where my true love came to me.
But the sea is wide and I can not swim over.
Nor have I the wings to fly.
Ahh to be back now in carrickfergus
To be together .. my love and i.
To be together .. my love and i.

I wish I was in carrickfergus,
To be together my love and i.

I wish I was back home again.

    General CommentBeautiful, peaceful, and sublime. Those are the characteristics of Charlotte Church and her music. (Especially this song)

    General CommentI LOVE THIS SONG! The music is so beautiful. It surprised me though to find "Carrichfergus" on Loreena McKennitt's CD, though the lyrics were VERY different. I love this version though. Wait, I already said that didn't I.....
