1965 – I’m Walking the Streets in the Rain – Butch Moore

Music and Lyrics by Teresa Conlon, George Prendergast & Joe Harrigan.
6th/18  (11 points)
 



I'M WALKING THE STREETS IN THE RAIN

My poor heart feels like breaking
'Cause I'll never see you again
Still, nobody knows I am crying
'Cause I'm walking the streets in the rain

My tears are mixed through the raindrops
And I feel like I can't stand the pain
Still, nobody knows I am crying
'Cause I'm walking the streets in the rain

I'm retracing your steps one by one
Oh... we walk down the street for so long
I can still see your face through my teardrops
While the rain whispers softly: "She's gone"

The tears and the rain will keep falling
'Til you bring back the sunshine again
Still, nobody knows I am crying
'Cause I'm walking the streets in the rain

Still, nobody knows I am crying
'Cause I'm walking the streets in the rain

1966 – Come Back to Stay – Dickie Rock

Music and Lyrics by Rowland Soper.
4th (shared with Belgium)/18  (14 points)
 



COME BACK TO STAY

My love, I need your touch, I need your love so very much
Since you went away, I cried for you each night and day
The day you went away, I said I didn't mind
Now I know that you have left a broken heart behind

Please, come back to stay and promise me you'll never stray
I promise I'll be true and that I'll never make you blue
For no one else can take your place
Your smile, your lips, your eyes, your face
Please, darling, oh please, come back to me to stay

Please, come back to stay and promise me you'll never stray
I promise that I'll be true and that I'll never make you blue
For no one else can take your place
Your smile, your lips, your eyes, your face
Please, darling, oh please, come back to me to stay

Oh darling, please come back to stay

1967 – If I Could Choose – Sean Dunphy

Music by Michael Coffey, Lyrics by Wesley Burrowes.
2nd/17  (22 points)
 



IF I COULD CHOOSE

They envy me, my hills of Clare
The white gulls calling in the soft sea air
So much to lose
And yet I'd leave the hills of Clare
And live in a desert if I had you there
What would I lose if I could choose

If I could choose a place to walk with you
I'd choose the longest road
And it would lead us to a house that no one knew
Bellows by the fire, and the turf smoke rising higher
Than the lark that wings and always sings of you

If I could choose a time to talk with you
I'd choose the longest day
And over all the hills of Clare, I'd shout the news
I would tell them how a day could last forever
And I'd never leave your side if I could choose

If I could choose a time to talk with you
I'd choose the longest day
And over all the hills of Clare, I'd shout the news
I would tell them how a day could last forever
And I'd never leave your side if I could choose

1968 – Chance of a Lifetime – Pat McGeegan

Music and Lyrics by John Kennedy.
4th/17  (18 points)
 



CHANCE OF A LIFETIME

One day, while I was out walking, I saw your face in the midst of a crowd
Here, I thought, is the chance of a lifetime, I thought you'd stepped from a cloud

Think of that wonderful meeting, oh... the sun shone down on us from above
Why should I be out walking that day and get the chance of a lifetime of love?

Show me the way you are feeling, always tell me just what I should know
Oh... a guiding hand must have brought us together, but now that seems so long ago

You are the one I have dreamt of, oh... I never thought my dreams would come true
All I want is the chance of a lifetime, the chance of a lifetime with you

Show me the way you are feeling, always tell me just what I should know
Oh... a guiding hand must have brought us together, but now that seems so long ago

You are the one I have dreamt of, I never thought my dreams would come true
All I want is the chance of a lifetime, the chance of a lifetime with you

All I want is the chance of a lifetime, the chance of a lifetime with you

1969 – The Wages of Love – Muriel Day

Music and Lyrics by Michael Reade.
7th (shared with Belgium)/16  (10 points)
 



THE WAGES OF LOVE

Look before you leap right into love, my friend
It cannot be bought so very cheap, my friend
Love that makes you laugh, love that makes you cry
Before you really understand it, it can make you live, it can make you die

There will be bridges to be crossed and there'll be teardrops to be lost
Or you will have to pay the cost, just wait and see, oh yeah
There are many rainbows on the way, days are maybe bright or maybe grey
So when you fall in love, you pay the wages of love
The wages of love, the wages of love

Just take my advice, don't be a fool, my friend
When you fall in love, you go to school, my friend
Lessons must get learned, fingers must get burned
Before you really understand it, love is very nice if you pay the price

There will be bridges to be crossed and there'll be teardrops to be lost
Or you will have to pay the cost, just wait and see, oh yeah
There are many rainbows on the way, days are maybe bright or maybe grey
So when you fall in love, you pay the wages of love
The wages of love, the wages of love

There will be bridges to be crossed and there'll be teardrops to be lost
Or you will have to pay the cost, just wait and see
There are many rainbows on the way, days are maybe bright or maybe grey
So when you fall in love, you pay the wages of love
The wages of love, the wages of love

1970 – All Kinds of Everything – Dana

Music and Lyrics by Derry Lindsay & Jackie Smith.
1st/12  (32 points)
 



ALL KINDS OF EVERYTHING

Snow drops and daffodils, butterflies and bees
Sailboats and fishermen, things of the sea
Wishing wells, wedding bells, early morning dew
All kinds of everything remind me of you

Seagulls and aeroplanes, things of the sky
Winds that go howling, breezes that sigh
City sights, neon lights, grey skies or blue
All kinds of everything remind me of you

Summertime, wintertime, spring and autumn too
Monday, Tuesday, every day, I think of you

Dances, romances, things of the night
Sunshine and holidays, postcards to write
Budding trees, autumn leaves, a snowflake or two
All kinds of everything remind me of you

Summertime, wintertime, spring and autumn too
Seasons will never change the way that I love you

Dances, romances, things of the night
Sunshine and holidays, postcards to write
Budding trees, autumn leaves, a snowflake or two
All kinds of everything remind me of you
All kinds of everything remind me of you

1971 – One Day Love – Angela Farrell

Music and Lyrics by Donald Martin & Ita Flynn.
11th/18  (79 points)
 



ONE DAY LOVE

You love for a day, then you go on your way
Breaking hearts, lonely hearts, though they want you to stay
Then you laugh, how you laugh, when the tears start to fall
Turn your back, one day love, wave your hand to them all

Yesterday, lovely day, I was yours for a while
In your arms there was peace as you kissed with a smile
Words of love, empty words, whispered close to my ear
They were lies, only lies, but I held them so dear

How can you be so deceiving? Why do you injure my pride?
Building me up with your promises only to throw me aside
How many hearts have you broken, closing your ears to their cries?
How many times have you cheated and lied with a look of deceit in your eyes?

One day soon, very soon, deep in love you will fall
And the one that you want will not answer your call
So beware and have care, take advice from a friend
Your kind of love, one day love, will come to an end

How can you be so deceiving? Why do you injure my pride?
Building me up with your promises only to throw me aside
How many hearts have you broken, closing your ears to their cries?
How many times have you cheated and lied with a look of deceit in your eyes?

One day soon, very soon, deep in love you will fall
And the one that you want will not answer your call
So beware and have care, take advice from a friend
Your kind of love, one day love, will end

CEOL AN GHRÁ

Éistigí, éistigí, cloisim arís é, ceol an ghrá
'Seo nó ansúid dom, bíonn sé de shíor liom, ceol an ghrá
I lár na cathrach breá, cois abhainn nó é trá
Cloisim an tiún, is tú mo rún, sin ceol an ghrá

Éistigí, éistigí, cloisim arís é, ceol an ghrá
Canann an t-éinín é, casann an ghaoth dom é, ceol an ghrá
Maidin nó lár an lae, cloisim i gcónaí é
Éist leis an túin, is tú mo rún, sin ceol an ghrá

Seo Tír na nÓg is tá sciatháin in áit mo chos
Anois is go deo tá an sonas romham thall is abhus
Is tú mo chroí de lá is d'oích'
Is gach uile nóiméad de'm' shaol

Éistigí, éistigí, cloisim arís é, ceol an ghrá
'Seo nó ansúid dom, bíonn sé de shíor liom, ceol an ghrá
I lár na cathrach breá, cois abhainn nó é trá
Cloisim an tiún, is tú mo rún, sin ceol an ghrá

Éistigí, éistigí, cloisim arís é, ceol an ghrá
'Seo nó ansúid dom, bíonn sé de shíor liom, ceol an ghrá

1973 – Do I Dream? – Maxi

Music and Lyrics by Jack Brierlev & George F. Crosbie.
10th (shared with Portugal)/17  (72 points)
 



DO I DREAM?

Does the sun dance on the river? Does it sparkle? Does it quiver? Do I dream?
Are the mountains blue and hazy or am I a little crazy? Do I dream?

My darling, tell me, do your arms enfold me? Did you say you love me only?
Is it true, or am I in a dream?
Has this cloud a silver lining? Will the sun be always shining? Darling, do I dream?

Are we walking through the heather? Are we holding hands together? Do I dream?
Are there many coloured flowers? Have we loved away the hours? Do I dream?

My darling, if I'm dreaming, do not wake me, never let my dream forsake me
I love you and that is not a dream
Will this love go on forever? Could we share our life together?
Do I dream, do I dream, do I dream?

Is the moon a little brighter? Are my footsteps feeling lighter? Do I dream?
Are there lucky stars above me? Tell me once again you love me - do I dream?

My darling, are we walking close together? Could we stay like this forever?
Is it true, or am I in a dream?
Will this love go on forever? Could we share our life together?
Do I dream, do I dream, do I dream?

Are we walking close together? Could we stay like this forever?
Is it true, or am I in a dream?
Will this love go on forever? Could we share our life together?
Do I dream, do I dream, do I dream?

1974 – Cross Your Heart – Tina Reynolds

Music and Lyrics by Paul Lyttle.
7th (shared with Israel)/17  (11 points)
 



CROSS YOUR HEART

La la la la la... la la la la la... la la la la la la...

Cross your heart, say 'I love you', cross your heart and hope to die
For a very simple reason and here's the reason why -
For so many hearts are broken by one little lie
Cross your heart and hope to die

Sticks and stones wouldn't break my bones, though it happened again and again
But I came smilling through, don't ask me how
Playing at games and calling me names never worried me then
But it's a different game we're playing now

Cross your heart, say 'I love you', cross your heart and hope to die
For a very simple reason and here's the reason why -
For so many hearts are broken by one little lie
Cross your heart and hope to die

It wasn't easy to get up, believe me, to get up again and again
Each time they knocked me down, it hurt a lot
Love's got to show now, there's nowhere to go now
This is the end of the line because I'm giving this all I've got

Cross your heart, say 'I love you', cross your heart and hope to die
For a very simple reason and here's the reason why -
For so many hearts are broken by one little lie
Cross your heart and hope to die

La la la la la la la... la la la la la la...
La la la la la la la... and here's the reason why -
For so many hearts are broken by one little lie
Cross your heart and hope to die

La la la la la... la la la la la... la la la la la la la...
La la la la la la la la... la la la la la... la la la la la la la...
La la la la la la la la... la la la la la... la la la la la la...

1975 – That’s What Friends Are for – The Swarbriggs

Music and Lyrics by Jimmy Swarbrigg & Tommy Swarbrigg.
9th/19  (68 points)
 



THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR

When you're lonely, when you're blue
When you need someone to talk to
When you need a talkin' to
And when troubles full and plenty
Come pilin' at your door
That's what friends are for

Ladies and gentlemen of the whole wide world
If every now and then a single voice was heard
Telling it like it should be, makin' it simple and plain
If that man needs a helpin' hand
Help him in from the rain

Now I know you, know you well
And I know that you've been worryin'
It's not hard for me to tell
But I'm standin' right beside you
Of that you can be sure
That's what friends are for

Ladies and gentlemen of the whole wide world
If every now and then a single voice was heard
Telling it like it should be, makin' it simple and plain
If that man needs a helpin' hand
Help him in from the rain

So remember, take your time
Just be sure and let it harmonise
Yeah, be sure and let it rhyme
I might call on you to see me through
So open up your door
That's what friends are for
That's what friends are for

1976 – When – Red Hurley

Music and Lyrics by Brendan Graham.
10th/18  (54 points)
 



WHEN

When the days of wine are gone
And all the nights are lone
Then all my thoughts run on to you

When the lonely silence comes
When I walk through empty halls
Then all my thoughts run on to you

And when they linger for a while
You come and touch me with your tender smile

And when your love was all my world
My days, my life - you were
Then all the songs were songs of you

I tasted well of sweet success
Nothing touched me that was second best

Oh... but then I turned and you were gone
To someone else's song
And now I'm going back to when
I loved you now and then

When the story now is told
And all my love unfolds
I've lost my very soul to you

Your love was written in the sky
But at the time, I never looked so high

Darlin', when will you come back to me?
Release me, set me free
When? Oh when?

1977 – It’s Nice to Be in Love Again – The Swarbriggs Plus Two

Music and Lyrics by Tommy Swarbirgg & Jimmy Swarbrigg.
3rd/18  (119 points)
 



IT'S NICE TO BE IN LOVE AGAIN

The sweetest thrill is knowing you're wanted
Never thought I'd feel it again
So long ago, I almost forgot it
It's coming back like and old refrain

It's nice to be in love again
That old familiar feeling when
You say hello and you know it's love

It's nice to be in love again
That old familiar feeling when
You meet your girl and the world stands still
Your heart is filled with sweet melody
It's nice to be in love again

The sweetest thrill, I couldn't believe it
I hadn't even a friend
This heart of mine was thinking of leaving
Until you came walking 'round that bend

It's nice to be in love again
That old familiar feeling when you say hello
And you know it's love

It's nice to be in love again
That old familiar feeling when
You meet your girl and the world stands still
Your heart is filled with sweet melody
It's nice to be in love again

It's nice to be in love again
That old familiar feeling when
You meet your girl and the world stands still
Your heart is filled with sweet melody
It's nice to be in love again

It's nice to be in love again
That old familiar feeling when you say hello

1978 – Born to Sing – Colm Wilkinson

Music and Lyrics by Colm Wilkinson.
5th/20  (86 points)
 



BORN TO SING

I said: "It would never work", you said: "Let us try"
I said: "I'm a travelling man who will only make you cry"
And when the feeling hit me and I had to move along
You said: "You were right, I guess, you must sing your song"

And a man is born to do one thing and I was born to sing
And I must take the good times and the bad times that it brings
And I missed you in the morning but most of all at night
And I couldn't stop the music, though I tried with all my might

I lie in bed and watch the shadows moving on the wall
And the loneliness is killing me, so I turn the radio on
And I need you now, I want you, in the slow morning light
And the music makes it easier, but it doesn't make it right

And a man is born to do one thing and I was born to sing
And I must take the good times and the bad times that it brings
And I missed you in the morning but most of all at night
And I couldn't stop the music, though I tried with all my might

Some day, I hope, you will understand why I live this way
Songs keep moving in my head, this music I must play
So I pack my bags and once again I get out on the road
Another day, maybe tonight, I might catch my soul

And a man is born to do one thing and I was born to sing
And I must take the good times and the bad times that it brings
And I missed you in the morning, oh... but most of all at night
And I couldn't stop the music, though I tried with all my might

And a man is born to do one thing and I was born to sing
And I must take the good times and the bad times that it brings
And I missed you in the morning, oh... but most of all at night
And I couldn't stop the music
(Couldn't stop the music)
No, I couldn't stop the music
Because I... hey... I was born... born to sing
Born to sing... born to sing... born to sing

1979 – Happy Man – Cathal Dunne

Music and Lyrics by Cathal Dunne.
5th/19  (80 points)
 



HAPPY MAN

It seemed life had no answers for me, no special meaning or plan
How could I be a happy man?
Then just like in a love-song, you're here, making each day seem so clear
Now I can smile - I'm a happy man

I'm in love and I'm alive - happy man
Got the sun inside - happy man
I've got a girl on my mind
Love in my heart - happy man

I'm in love and I'm alive - happy man
Got the sun inside - happy man
So now the whole world can see
I've got all I need - I'm a happy man

And now you say it's happened to you, this love I'm feeling inside
Girl, you've made me a happy man
And I will share a lifetime with you making our dreams all come true
Now I can smile - I'm a happy man

I'm in love and I'm alive - happy man
Got the sun inside - happy man
I've got a girl on my mind
Love in my heart - happy man

I'm in love and I'm alive - happy man
Got the sun inside - happy man
So now the whole world can see
I've got all I need - I'm a happy man

I'm in love and I'm alive - happy man
Got the sun inside - happy man
I've got a girl on my mind
Love in my heart - happy man

I'm in love and I'm...

1980 – What’s Another Year? – Johnny Logan

Music and Lyrics by Shay Healy.
1st/19  (143 points)
 



WHAT’S ANOTHER YEAR?

I've been waitin' such a long time, lookin' out for you
But you're not here - what's another year?

I've been wakin' such a long time, reachin' out for you
But you aren't near - what's another year?

What's another year
For someone who's lost everything that he owns?
What's another year
For someone who's gettin' used to bein' alone?

I've been prayin' such a long time
It's the only way to hide the fear - what's another year?

What's another year
For someone who's lost everything that he owns?
What's another year
For someone who's gettin' used to bein' alone?

I've been cryin' such a long time
With such a lot of pain in every tear -
What's another year (for someone who is getting used to being alone)?
What's another year (for someone who is getting used to being alone)?
What's another year (for someone who is getting used to being alone)?

1981 – Horoscopes – Sheeba

Music by Jim Kelly, Lyrics by Joe Burkett.
5th/20  (105 points)
 



HOROSCOPES

Rushing for the papers every day
To find out what the stars have got to say
About the fortunes that are on the way
It's crazy, crazy

Working, not waiting that forever we'll hold
Success comes from what we do, not from what we're told
And counting our lucky stars is living unforetold

Don't let the planets take control of our lives
Believe in the truth and not celestial lies
It's we, not the stars above, who write our horoscopes

There go those Aerians, Leos, Aquarians
Pisces, Cancerians show
No matter when we're born, Libra or Capricorn
Taurus and Scorpions know

Nothing can change the way we've chosen to live
And no one can tell us when to take or to give
It's we, not the stars above, who write our horoscopes

Yet in spite of this, one day, life died
There we are, with eyes turned to the sky
All anxious to be told a few more lies
Still crazy, crazy

Working, not waiting that forever we'll hold
Success comes from what we do, not from what we're told
And counting our lucky stars is living unforetold

Don't let the planets take control of our lives
Believe in the truth and not celestial lies
It's we, not the stars above, who write our horoscopes

Throw away all the maps, signs of the Zodiac
Then there is said to be found
They are celestial, we are terrestrial
Let's keep our feet on the ground

Don't let the planets take control of our lives
Believe in the truth and not celestial lies
It's we, not the stars above, who write our horoscopes

It's we, not the stars above, who write our horoscopes

1982 – Here Today, Gone Tomorrow – The Duskeys

Music and Lyrics by Sally Keating.
11th/18  (49 points)
 



HERE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW

La la la la la la... la la la la la... la la la la la...
La la la la la... la la la la la... la la la la la...

Hey baby, tell me please
How can you come back to me as cool as a breeze?
You can fool some people with your big brown eyes
But I'm the one who knows that you've been telling me lies
You tell me that you love me so
Then you pack up and off you go

Here today, gone tomorrow
One day love, next day sorrow
First you give, then you borrow
Here today, gone tomorrow
Baby, love me all of the time, or I don't really wanna know

Here today, gone tomorrow
One day love, next day sorrow
First you give, then you borrow
Here today, gone tomorrow
Baby, give me all of your love, or I don't really wanna know

La la la la la la... la la la la la... la la la la la...
La la la la la... la la la la la... la la la la la...

Hey baby, would it be nice
If I paid attention to my friends' advice?
They've been telling me that I should turn you down
'Cause you've another girlfriend on the far side of town
I always hoped when you'd go away
That you would change your rovin' ways and come back to stay

Here today, gone tomorrow
One day love, next day sorrow
First you give, then you borrow
Here today, gone tomorrow
Baby, love me all of the time, or I don't really wanna know

Here today, gone tomorrow
One day love, next day sorrow
First you give, then you borrow
Here today, gone tomorrow
Baby, give me all of your love, or I don't really wanna know

Here today, gone tomorrow
One day love, next day sorrow
First you give, then you borrow
Here today, gone tomorrow

1984 – Terminal 3 – Linda Martin

Music and Lyrics by Johnny Logan.
2nd/19  (137 points)
 



TERMINAL 3

Long distance U.S.A., last night I heard him say
He's been away too long, now he's coming home
Be on the morning plane, if I still feel the same
I should be waiting 'cause he'd be all alone

I'm in arrivals by the time he had said
I search the information board and it read
"Terminal 3, flight's on time"

Staring into a space, searching through every face
He's been away too long now, he must have changed
Another time and place can never quite erase
The way he turned his back and walked away

I repeated all the words he had said
Until a voice came through into my head
"Terminal 3, flight's on time"

Fly to me on the wings of all you meant to me
Memories of the dreams that all tomorrow can be for you and me
"Terminal 3, flight's on time"

Fly to me on the wings of all you meant to me
Memories of the dreams that all tomorrow can be for you and me
"Terminal 3, flight's on time"

Long distance U.S.A., last night I heard him say
Could I be waiting 'cause he'd be all alone
I told him nothing's changed and I still feel the same
He's been away too long

Come on home (Long distance U.S.A., last night I heard him say)
Come on home (Could I be waiting 'cause he'd be all alone)
Come on home (I told him nothing's changed and I still feel the same)
Come on home (He's been away too long)
"Terminal 3, flight's on time"

Long distance U.S.A., long distance U.S.A.
Long distance U.S.A., long distance U.S.A.
Long distance U.S.A., long distance U.S.A.
Long distance U.S.A., long distance U.S.A.

1985 – Wait Until the Weekend Comes –Maria Christian

Music and Lyrics by Brendan Graham.
6th/19  (91 points)
 



WAIT UNTIL THE WEEKEND COMES

Wait until the weekend comes
Then we'll have what time it takes
To sort it out, to see it through

Wait until the weekend comes
Sundays always change your mind
And make you laugh about me and you

Hold me now, really don't want you to go
Really don't want you to go, and I'm so afraid
Hold me now, really don't want you to know
Really don't want you to know that I'm so afraid

Wait until the summer comes
Sunshine looks so good on you
We'll catch the tide and start anew

Hold me now, really don't want you to go
Really don't want you to go, and I'm so afraid
Hold me now, really don't want you to know
Really don't want you to know that I'm so afraid

Wait until the rainbow ends
Then we'll find our pot of gold
Lovers, friends, just growin' old
So wait until the weekend comes and goes
Wait until the weekend comes and goes

1986 – You Can Count on Me – Luv Bug

Music and Lyrics by Kevin Sheerin.
4th/20  (96 points)
 



YOU CAN COUNT ON ME

I was so happy with you
My hopes and dreams had all come true
And our love shone for all the world to see

As if you turned out the light
Your love was gone overnight
And all I've left - the words you said to me

You can count on me
You can count on me
'Til the end of time, plus eternity

You can count on me
You can count on me
I'll be by your side, you can count on me

I see despair all around
All of the world is upside down
And there's no light ahead that I can see

If we could only be friends
Give it a chance and try again
Maybe we can relive the words you said to me

You can count on me
You can count on me
'Til the end of time, plus eternity

You can count on me
(On me, don't you know?)
You can count on me
I'll be by your side, you can count on me

(You can count on)
(You can count on)
Don't you know you can count on me?
I'll be by your side, you can count on me

You can count on me
(On me, don't you know?)
You can count on me
Count on me 'til the end of time, plus eternity

You can count on me
(On me, don't you know?)
You can count on me
Count on me, I'll be by your side
You can count on me

1987 – Hold Me Now – Johnny Logan

Music and Lyrics by Johnny Logan.
1st/22  (172 points)
 



HOLD ME NOW

Don't... don't close your heart to how you feel
Dream, and don't be afraid the dream's not real
Close your eyes, pretend it's just the two of us again
Make believe this moment's here to stay

Touch... touch me the way you used to do
I know tonight could be all I'll have with you
From now on, you'll be with someone else instead of me
So tonight, let's fill this memory
For the last time -

Hold me now
Don't cry, don't say a word
Just hold me now
And I will know -
Though we're apart, we'll always be together
Forever in love
What do you say when words are not enough?

Time... time will be kind once we're apart
And your tears... tears will have no place in your heart
I wish I... I could say how much I'll miss you when you're gone
How my love for you will go on and on and

Hold me now
Don't cry, don't say a word
Just hold me now
And try to understand that

I hope at last you've found
What you've been searchin' for
And though I won't be there anymore
I will always love you

(Hold me now)
(Don't cry,) don't say a word
Just hold me now
And I will know -
Though we're apart, we'll always be together
Forever in love
What do you say when words are not enough?

What can I say?
Now my words are not enough

1988 – Take Him Home – Jump the Gun

Music and Lyrics by Peter Eades.
8th/21  (79 points)
 



TAKE HIM HOME

So much to do, so little time
You ask me, can I change the world?
And then, for everybody's sake
What are the changes I would make?
And you can dream, dream on, my friend
You have the right
There is something we can do
Something we can do, it's so easy

If I light a candle for everybody I know
I could see forever down that long, long road

So if you meet somebody, it might be someone I know
Brother, if he needs you, take him home

You can look him in the eye and hold out your hand
Tell him you're a brother and he'll understand

So if you meet somebody, it might be someone I know
Brother, if he needs you...
Brother, if he needs you, take him home

So if you meet somebody, it might be someone I know
Brother, if he needs you...
Brother, if he needs you...
Brother, if he needs you, take him home

Brother, if he needs you, take him home

1989 – The Real Me – Kiev Connolly & The Missing Passengers

Music and Lyrics by Kiev Connolly.
18th/22  (21 points)
 



THE REAL ME

I call my baby and she tells me that she's leavin' and this time it's for good
I can't believe her and I'm sure that there is something that I've misunderstood, yeah yeah
When she's gone, I'll be standin' here in the rain
When she's gone, well, the sun won't shine anyway

Can't you see that it's the real me?
Take me as I am or let me be
Come to me, discover me
Oh... take my hand and you will see it's me

You know the feeling when you're needing and your heart is cold
If there's a reason or a meaning then I ain't been told, yeah yeah
When she's gone, I'll be standin' here in the rain
When she's gone, well, the sun won't shine anyway

Can't you see that it's the real me?
Take me as I am or let me be
Come to me, discover me
Oh... take my hand and you will see it's me

Real me, it's the real me
Real me, it's the real me

Can't you see that it's the real me?
Take me as I am or let me be
Come to me, discover me
Oh... take my hand and you will see it's me

Mmm... can't you see that it's the real me?
Take me as I am or let me be
Come to me, discover me
Oh... take my hand and you will see it's me

Mmm... can't you see that it's the real me?
Take me as I am or let me be
Come to me, discover me
Oh... take my hand and...
