Saoirse Eireann

Saoirs Eireann
Beloved land
Your hills so green
Surrounded by blue waters
The language of your children
Voice of druids
From a time long beyond
Poetry with every word
There where foreigner become friends
On the turffires
Singing old lyrics - telling old tales
Your enemy was destiny
You won the fight
Ships arrived to take your children
Into a far away land
The foreign man could not break your your pride
But why are your storytellers silent
Listen harps and fiddles playing
From coast to coast you can hear them
Through the foggy dew
Marching with the death
Beloved land
Your hills so red
From your own blood
Surrounded by sadness and tears
The language of your children
Voice of violence
Made by bombs and riffles
Hatred with every words
There where brothers and sisters become enemies
On the streets
Old churches burning - homes are ruins
Your new enemy your sons and daughters
You lost the fight
No ships save your children
Destroyed by your own - your pride
Will there ever be a tale
Listen uilleann pipes and bodhrans playing
From glen to glen you can hear them
Through the morning light
Marching with a new generation
Beloved land
They will burn the turffires
There where the corn of freedom rises
Singing old lyrics - narrate a new tale
For you - My Ireland
