Well past memories are gone
hymns to the silence again
and a long lonely night will bring us
together my friend
the morning light will shine in your eye
when you pass me by

Oh the Irish sea will roll on
and the sight will still be young
and the view will speak the words
that get caught upon my tongue
yet I’ll turn my head turn my head and sigh
when you pass me by

I wish the music would play
and the lantern light would glow
and your eyes would speak again
like a gypsy on the go

The pub will close it’s doors
and the voices will be still
in the morning my soul
will pay the bill
I’ve something to say before I cry
when you pass me by

I wish the music would play
and the lantern light would glow
and your eyes would speak again
like a gypsy on the go
and the whistle of a midnight train
meant a child returning home
to the old country
where a kindred soul can roam
