So far from home
My cry of pain
Won't ease my longing heart
I miss you mam
I miss you dad
I'm falling apart
Now when I look out my window
Through a winter's evening rain
I see the same sky
You see at home
Somehow it's not the same

I'm longing to get home
How I miss all you loving smiles
Oh how the winter bites
When you're so far away
for so long
For far too long

Is my girl still there
Does she visit you
Is she still as pretty as ever
Does she ask for me..
'Cos I long for her
I need her more than ever
Tell her it won't be long
Until I'm home to stay
I won't ever go again
By her side I'll always stay
I'm longing to get...

    General CommentId advise any Irish person who is living away from home and feeling homesick to never listen to this song. Just makes you wanna go home and never leave again.

    My OpinionI love this song but I can't listen to it when I'm living away from home, I get homesick by the end of the first line.
