See you again

Last Updated on

Recorded at Shay’s Studio, April 2005

Well, it’s farewell to Ireland
I’m leaving again.
When this May morning dawns
Another parting will begin
With a sense of hope across the land
For our daughters and our sons.
For the first time in my life
I feel the healing has begun.

I want to see you again.

It’s farewell to the water
To the rivers and the wells
And there’s sixty thousand townlands
Each with a story to tell.
For there’s magic in the island
The power remains
And there’s gods and goddesses to be found
In the light behind the rain.

I want to see you again.

It’s farewell to County Antrim,
To Derry and Tyrone.
The three Ulster counties
Where my ancestors seeds were sown.
Though I’m leaving tomorrow
I vow I shall return
For the love of Dagda’s children
Is a flame that always burns.

I want to see you again.
