<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Life was perfect, we said I do<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">I left my home and made one with you<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">I woke in your country from a distant dream of Ireland<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Chorus<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-right: -1in"><span style="font-size: 14pt; color: blue">Eidir mo gra agus mo bhaile<span style="mso-tab-count: 4">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><span style="mso-tab-count: 1">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><o:p></o:p></span></p>
<h2><span style="font-size: 14pt">Between my love and my home<o:p></o:p></span></h2>
<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-right: -1in"><span style="font-size: 14pt; color: blue">Eidir saol agus saoirse ta mo chroi tuirseach<span style="mso-tab-count: 2">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><span style="mso-tab-count: 1">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><o:p></o:p></span></p>
<h3><span style="font-size: 14pt">Between life and freedom my heart is tired<o:p></o:p></span></h3>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt; color: blue">Ag troid me fein nil aon rud eile, eidir na ri ra ach mo gra<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<h3><span style="font-size: 14pt">I fight myself<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </span>there is nothing between the trouble but my love<o:p></o:p></span></h3>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt; color: blue">Nil fhios agam ca bhfuil mo bhaile inniu<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<h3><span style="font-size: 14pt">I don&rsquo;t know where home is today<span style="mso-tab-count: 1">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><span style="mso-tab-count: 2">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span><o:p></o:p></span></h3>

<h3><span style="font-size: 14pt">But underneath my heart true love is here<o:p></o:p></span></h3>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">The right time, the right line doesn&rsquo;t exist<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">You can&rsquo;t tell her just what you miss<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Then in an instant you hear a reel and smell the heather<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Chorus<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">You keep your home &lsquo;cause I love our life<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">I&rsquo;ll keep mine in my heart and my dreams each night<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Look past the difference, love will always be long distance<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">Chorus<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14pt">&nbsp;<o:p></o:p></span></p>
