"Sinead" as written by and Sharon J. Den Adel Robert Westerholt....
I've gotta try
It's not over yet
No signals of love
Have you left
My heart is bleeding just for you
Bleeds for only you

And it hurts to know the truth

Are you looking for saviours
Chasing a dream
Love turned to hate

Now I'm crossing the border
See then I fade
But I'm not afraid

Oh Sinead,
For the first time
Love is gonna turn around
I'm telling you
You will like it, I know

Oh Sinead,
It's the first time
Only you can set it free
Oh Sinead
Come break away with me

This second chance I know won't last
But it's OK
Got not regrets
And I, I feel the end here
I'm a fool
Getting closer

But I'm doing what I should
I been drowning in sorrow
Chasing tomorrow,
Running away

Now you're crossing the border
See no tomorrow
But you're not afraid

Oh Sinead,
For the first time
Love is gonna turn around
I'm telling you
You will like it, I know

Oh Sinead,
It's the first time
Only you can set it free
Oh Sinead
Come break away with me

But I'm doing what I should
I've been drowning in sorrow
Chasing tomorrow,
Running away

Now you're crossing the border
See no tomorrow
But you're not afraid

Oh Sinead,
For the first time
Love is gonna turn around
I'm telling you
You will like it

Oh Sinead,
For the first time
Love is gonna turn around
I'm telling you
You will like it, I know

Oh Sinead,
It's the first time
Only you can set it free
Oh Sinead
Come break away with me.

    My InterpretationApparently, Sinead is an Irish name that means "God is Gracious." So from what I can gather, the song might be about a person (maybe a girl, since it is a name of female persuasion, although I think that depends on what language it's in, as I have found it is also the equivalent of the name "John," therefore it also could be male). The beginning seems to imply that the person singing the song feels a certain sense of loneliness or purposelessness ("looking for a savior, chasing a dream"), which can imply that it is a song about finding someone (or for my fellow religious folks, perhaps finding faith?) or something that can fill that emptiness (or uselessness).

    The problem I'm running into is that the song alludes to taking something of a leap of faith. I wonder if this supports my theory, but I'm going to relate the text as I have seen it. When the singer is talking about feeling no fear at moving past the mundanity of life at the risk of danger (or possibly death), this could be seen as a challenge on the life the person is living, and how they want to take that leap of faith (again, perhaps to glorify God in this world, or perhaps just to find some meaning in life). Leastways that's the interpretation I developed from the text. If anyone has anything to comment on or add go ahead.

    Lyric CorrectionHmm, I could be wrong here but..

    I think the line "Only you can set [it] free." should be "Only you can set [me] free."

    Maybe it's just me, but it sounds more like "me" than "it". Feel free to let me know if you guys agree or disagree.

    My OpinionFrom the way that she has sang the song, first with her crossing the border and then the person she's singing to crosses then latter on in the song. I think that it a be a temptation song. That shes telling them that they'll like it and there is no fear when they cross the border to whatever that border could be.

    My InterpretationThe song was written based on a comic series called "The Unforgiving"

    Sinead is a vampire - the rest should become clear.
