1990 – Somewhere in Europe – Liam Reilly

Music and Lyrics by Liam Reilly.
2nd (shared with France)/22  (132 points)
 



SOMEWHERE IN EUROPE

It's been a long time since we were together
I'm back in Ireland and I miss you more than ever
In early spring we parted and I've been here since then
But if I could only see you once again

Meet me in Paris on a Champs-Élysées night
We could be in Rome again, 'neath the Trevi fountain light
We should be together, and maybe we just might
If you could only meet me somewhere in Europe tonight

I remember Amsterdam as we sailed along the canal
And as the leaves began to fall, we were walking in old Bruxelles
In the Black Forest on a German summer's day
And the memories refuse to go away

Meet me in Paris on a Champs-Élysées night
We could be in Rome again, 'neath the Trevi fountain light
We should be together, and maybe we just might
If you could only meet me somewhere in Europe

Don't you remember those Adriatic days?
I miss your laughter and all your little ways
I can still see you in London, walking on Trafalgar Square
And drinking wine in Old Seville, how I wish that we were there

Meet me in Paris on a Champs-Élysées night
We could be in Rome again, 'neath the Trevi fountain light
We should be together, maybe we just might
If you could only meet me somewhere in Europe tonight

Meet me in Paris on a Champs-Élysées night
We could be in Rome again, 'neath the Trevi fountain light
We should be together, and maybe we just might
If you could only meet me somewhere in Europe tonight

Somewhere in Europe tonight
Somewhere in Europe

1991 – Could It Be That I’m in Love? – Kim Jackson

Music and Lyrics by Liam Reilly.
10th (shared with United Kingdom)/22  (47 points)
 



COULD IT BE THAT I'M IN LOVE?

I don't know why I want you the way that I want you
And I don't know why I miss you the way that I miss you
But when I'm in your arms, it makes me feel so good
And I don't know the reason why
I don't know the reason why

And I don't understand why I feel the way I do
And I don't understand what I feel when I'm with you
And anyway now, it's no use worrying until I find out what it is

Could it be that when I'm with you, my fears all go away?
Could it be that when I'm with you, it's like the start of a brand new day?
Or is it just that when I hold you, I can't hold you enough?
Or could it be that I'm in love?

Somebody once told me: "You've gotta trust your heart"
And this I have tried to do right from the very start
And when I'm close to you, it makes me feel so good
And I don't know the reason why

Could it be that when I'm with you, my fears all go away?
Could it be that when I'm with you, it's like the start of a brand new day?
Or is it just that when I hold you, I can't hold you enough?
Or could it be that I'm in love?

Could it be that I'm in love?
Could it be that I'm in love?

1992 – Why Me? – Linda Martin

Music and Lyrics by Johnny Logan.
1st/23  (155 points)
 



WHY ME?

Sometimes I watch you passing by my window
And sometimes I watch you passing through my dreams
And sometimes, when I look at you
You take my breath away

Sometimes I try and understand your reasons
You choose to feel the way you feel about me
And sometimes, when I turn around
And you're there, like today
I wanna say:

Why me?
I look at you and I get to feeling
Why me?
I know it true but I can't believe it
I keep on wondering why
My love shines in your eyes
Why me?
I look at you and I ask myself
Why me?

Sometimes I lie awake and watch you sleeping
And listen to the beating of your heart
And sometimes, when you're lying there
You take my breath away
And I wanna say

Why me?
I look at you and I get to feeling
Why me?
I know it true but I can't believe that it's me
Who's gonna be holdin' you in my arms tonight
And why it's me
Who's gonna be the one to make you feel all right
Tonight

Why me?
I look at you and I get to feeling
Why me?
I know it true but I can't believe it
I keep on wondering why
My love shines in your eyes
Why me?
I look at you and I ask myself
Why me?

Why me?

1993 – In Your Eyes – Niamh Kavanagh

Music and Lyrics by Jimmy Walsh.
1st/25  (187 points)
 



IN YOUR EYES

Showing no emotion, my feelings locked inside
I made myself an island, trying to take my heart and hide
I built a wall around me, afraid of letting go
But suddenly an open door I never saw before

In your eyes
I see the light leading me home again
It's heaven in your arms, my love
My heart is in your hands
In you eyes, seems so right
I see forever in your smile
This woman is a child again
(In your eyes)

Love's been building bridges between your heart and mine
I'm safe here on my island, but I'm out on the edge this time
I built a wall around me, thought I'd save myself the pain
Your touch swept me away, now I'll never play it safe again

In your eyes
I see the light leading me home again
It's heaven in your arms, my love
My heart is in your hands
In you eyes, seems so right
I see forever in your smile
This woman is a child again

I've never been this close
How do I know love will survive?
I'm walking a tightrope
Here, in your arms, I'm alive

In your eyes, I see the light
I see forever in your smile
This woman is a child again

Oh... in your eyes
(I see the light leading me home again)
See the light, I see the light
(It's heaven in your arms, my love)
(My heart is in your hands)
Whoa...
(In you eyes, feels so right)
I see forever in your smile
This woman is a child again
When I look in your eyes

1994 – Rock ‘n’ Roll Kids – Paul Harrington & Charlie McGettigan

Music and Lyrics by Brendan Graham.
1st/25  (226 points)
 



ROCK 'N' ROLL KIDS

I remember Sixty-Two
I was sixteen and so were you
And we lived next door on the avenue

Jerry Lee was big and Elvis too
Blue jeans and blue suede shoes
And we never knew what life held in store
We just wanted to rock 'n' roll forever more

We were the rock 'n' roll kids
Rock 'n' roll was all we did
And listenin' to those songs on the radio
I was yours and you were mine
That was once upon a time
Now we never seem to rock 'n' roll anymore

Now Johnny's in love with the girl next door
And Mary's down at the record store
They don't wanna be around us no more

Golden oldies, but we hardly speak
Too busy running to a different beat
Hard to understand we were once like them
How I wish we could find those rock 'n' roll days again

We were the rock 'n' roll kids
Rock 'n' roll was all we did
And listenin' to those songs on the radio
I was yours and you were mine
That was once upon a time
Now we never seem to rock 'n' roll anymore

I was yours and you were mine
That was once upon a time
Now we never seem to rock 'n' roll
We just never seem to rock 'n' roll anymore

1995 – Dreamin’– Eddie Friel

Music and Lyrics by Richard Abbot & Barry Woods.
14th/23  (44 points)
 



DREAMIN'

Dreamin', dreamin' on a silver sea of moonlight
Magic fills the night, melodies alight, when I'm dreamin'

Dreamin', dreamin' how I love this nowhere feelin'
'Round and 'round I go, shadows soft and low, when I'm dreamin'

You can sail on any ocean, dream an easy melody
Moonlight magic shines so gently, moonlight magic harmony

Night time slips away in silence (Dreamin')
Daylight steals across my silver sea
Goodbye dreamin' in the moonlight (Goodbye)
Sleepy wake up to reality

Lay lay lay... la la la la la la la la la la la... la la la la la...
Underneath the stars, dreamin'

Faraway - a blue horizon driftin' on the midnight sea
Moonlight magic shines so gently, moonlight magic harmony

(Dreamin'... la la la la la la la la la la la...)
Sleepy wake up to reality (Dreamin')

1996 – The Voice– Eimear Quinn

Music and Lyrics by Brendan Graham.
1st/23  (162 points)
 



THE VOICE

I hear your voice on the wind
And I hear you call out my name

"Listen my child," you say to me
"I am the voice of your history
"Be not afraid - come follow me
"Answer my call and I'll set you free"

I am the voice in the wind and the pouring rain
I am the voice of your hunger and pain
I am the voice that always is calling you
I am the voice, I will remain

I am the voice in the fields when the summer's gone
The dance of the leaves when the autumn winds blow
Ne'er do I sleep throughout all the cold winter long
I am the force that in springtime will grow

I am the voice of the past that will always be
Filled with my sorrows and blood in my fields
I am the voice of the future
Bring me your peace
Bring me your peace and my wounds - they will heal

I am the voice in the wind and the pouring rain
I am the voice of your hunger and pain
I am the voice that always is calling you
I am the voice

I am the voice of the past that will always be
I am the voice of your hunger and pain
I am the voice of the future
I am the voice
I am the voice
I am the voice
I am the voice

1997 – Mysterious Woman – Marc Roberts

Music and Lyrics by John Farry.
2nd/25  (157 points)
 



MYSTERIOUS WOMAN

I saw you at an airport, ticket in your hand
I got a feeling in my heart I didn't understand
Something in the way you were, something foreign in your eyes
Made me wish that I could share one moment of your life

Mysterious woman, I wonder, did you see the kind of spell you put on me?
Mysterious woman, I wish I could find the key to the kind of spell you put on me

The room was full of faces, but you stood out from the crowd
People going places, far away beyond the clouds
Were you from the streets of Paris or the coast of Italy
Or were you from as far away as the gulf of Araby?

Mysterious woman, I wonder, did you see the kind of spell you put on me?
Mysterious woman, I wish I could find the key to the kind of spell you put on me

Did I imagine you smiled, or were my thoughts going wild?

Suddenly you were going, the speaker called your plane
There was no way of knowing if I'd ever see you again
But this brief - so brief - encounter will always stay with me
I will always treasure the bittersweet memory

Mysterious woman, I wonder, did you see the kind of spell you put on me?
Mysterious woman, it'll always be a mystery - the kind of spell you put on me

1998 – Is Always Over Now? – Dawn Martin

Music and Lyrics by Gerry Morgan.
9th/25  (64 points)
 



IS ALWAYS OVER NOW?

I never thought that it would end
You were the one - my love, my friend
You were my every dream come true
Always, you said, was me and you

So how can you say it's over now?
How can you wave it all goodbye?
Always, you said, this love would be
Always, you said, was you and me

Is always over now? Does it never last that long?
Were the feelings that I had ever right, or was it wrong?
To think that love should last was mistaken on my part
But you promised me the Earth (You promised me...)
And you only broke my heart

You touched my soul
You touched my life
You always would, you said
But now, you are taking always away

Is always over now? Does it never last that long?
Were the feelings that I had ever right, or was it wrong?
To think that love should last was mistaken on my part
But you promised me the Earth (You promised me...)
And you only broke my heart

Is always over now? Does it never last that long?
Were the feelings that I had ever right, or was it wrong?
To think that love should last was mistaken on my part
But you promised me the Earth (You promised me...)
And you only broke my heart
(You promised me...)

1999 – When You Need Me – The Mullans

Music and Lyrics by Bronagh Mullan.
17th/23  (18 points)
 



WHEN YOU NEED ME

And you would always be there, in everything I'd do
But the fool that I am never tried to understand
When you needed someone to help you through the rain
But this child inside of me never let me feel your pain

And how I've let it all just slip away, and now I'm wishing for yesterday

Don't you go on your own, don't leave me here alone
'Cause I'll be there, yes, I swear, when you need me I'll be there
Don't you go, I'm on my own, don't you go

You been inspiration all along the way
But I can see it in your eyes, well, there's no more yesterday
But I will find my way back, no matter what it takes
For the first time I can see the love you lost on me

Don't you go on your own, don't leave me here alone
'Cause I'll be there, yes, I swear, when you need me I'll be there
Don't you go, no, no

And now I've let it all just slip away, but the fool, the fool's inside of me

Don't you go on your own, don't leave me here alone
'Cause I'll be there, yes, I swear, when you need me I'll be there
Don't you go, I'm on my own, don't you go

2000 – Millenium of Love – Eamonn Toal

Music by Gerry Simpson, Lyrics by Raymond J. Smyth.
6th/24  (92 points)
 



MILLENNIUM OF LOVE

Nature's child lays beside a mother's broken heart
We stand denied the power and glory
Bitterness can't feed the hungry, hate just leaves us cold
It's time to change it

I lit a candle in a dream I thought I heard
Liberated voices crying freedom
Open hearts, open doors in truth and honesty
Let wisdom be the guiding light

Celebrate the new millennium of love
Where our footprints leave a harvest for the children
Somewhere on our journey lies a world beyond compare
I believe we all have the answer

A cloud can hide a mountain and a face can hide the pain
Search until you find the answer
There is no reason, who can understand man's inhumanity to man

Celebrate the new millennium of love
Where our footprints leave a harvest for the children
Somewhere on our journey lies a world beyond compare
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe in you

(Celebrate the new millennium of love)
Let our footprints leave a harvest for the children
Somewhere on our journey lies a world beyond compare
I believe we all have the answer
I believe we all have the answer

2001 – Without Your Love – Gary O’Shaughnessy

Music and Lyrics by Pat Sheridan.
21st/23  (6 points)
 



WITHOUT YOUR LOVE

I don't want to live my life without you
I don't ever want to say 'goodbye'
'Cause you're the only one that I am here for
Never want to see you cry
But I can't go on, oh no
No, I can't go on, oh no

Without your love, without your heart
I'd be lost here, in the dark
I just don't know where would I be without your love
You're the light in the dark

I want to wake up with you beside me
I will never let this feeling die
I just want to be here in the morning
To see the sunlight in your eyes
But I can't go on, oh no
No, I can't go on, oh no

Without your love, without your heart
I'd be lost here, in the dark
I just don't know where would I be without your love

Without your love, without your heart
I'd be lost here, in the dark
I just don't know where would I be without your love
You're the light in the dark

2003 – We’ve Got Tonight – Mickey Joe Harte

Music and Lyrics by Martin Brannigan & Keith Molloy.
11th (shared with Germany)/26  (53 points)
 



WE'VE GOT THE WORLD TONIGHT

She stands under moonlight
She touches her hair
Her smile lights emotions
And her love fills the air
 
And I know you're my every tomorrow
And I know that you'll always be there
 
We've got the world tonight (Tonight)
Let's hold on together
And we've got a love that's right (That's right)
So open your heart
'Cause we've got tonight
 
We move even closer
With hope in our eyes
'Cause love is the answer
To the hurt and the lies
 
And I know you're my every tomorrow
And I know that you'll always be there
 
We've got the world tonight (Tonight)
Let's hold on together
And we've got a love that's right (That's right)
So open your heart
 
We've got the world tonight (Tonight)
Let's hold on together
And we've got a love that's right (That's right)
So open your heart
 
Ask me why (Ask me why)
The sun and the moon go round
Ask me why (Ask me why)
My feet never touch the ground
(Tell the truth) Tell the truth
You take my breath away
 
We've got the world tonight
 
We've got the world tonight (Tonight)
Let's hold on together
And we've got a love that's right (That's right)
So open your heart
So open your heart
 
We've got the world tonight (Tonight)
Let's hold on together
Let's hold on together

So open your heart
So open your heart
 
We've got the world tonight (Tonight)
Let's hold on together
Let's hold on together
'Cause we've got tonight

2004 – If My World Stopped Turning – Chris Doran

Music by Bryan McFadden, Lyrics by Jonathan Shorten.
22nd (shared with Belgium)/24  (7 points)
 



IF MY WORLD STOPPED TURNING

I could see my future
When I'm looking in your eyes
And I can sense security
Just by you being in my life

A little voice inside my head
Says you're an angel in disguise
Without you I feel hopeless
Without you I'm deprived

I wish I could describe it
All the love I feel inside
Maybe I can find the words
That would make you realize

My life seems near perfect
When I got you in my arms
That's when I feel wholesome
That's when I'm with you

And if my world stopped turning in the morning
And if God should take this all away
If it all should stop without a warning
I would still stand tall
'Cause behind it all
You're the one who's made a winner out of me

I lie alone to touch you
And it comes as a surprise
That we spent so long apart
Even more that I survived

And if I'm speaking frankly
There's only one thing I can say
That I'm falling for you, baby
Falling further every day

And if my world stopped turning in the morning
And if God should take this all away
If it all should stop without a warning
I would still stand tall
'Cause behind it all
You made me your winner

If my world stopped turning in the morning
And if God should take this all away
If it all should stop without a warning
I would still stand tall
'Cause behind it all
You're the one who's made a winner out of me

2005 – Love? – Donna & Joe

Music and Lyrics by Karl Broderick.
Non-Qualified Entry
(14th/25 in Semi Final with 53 points)
 



LOVE?

Love can build you up
Love can tear you down
Love can change the world
This is what I've found

Love can make you happy
Love can make you cry
Love can be the best
Til it's passed you by

(Love, love, love)

Do you wanna, do you wanna
Do you wanna fall in love?
Do you need it? Can you feel it?
Do you think you're strong enough?

Can you take the highs?
Can you take the lows?
Can you handle everything love throws?

Love can build you up
Love can tear you down
Love can change the world
This is what I've found

Love can make you happy
Love can make you cry
Love can be the best
Til it's passed you by

(Love, love, love)

If you want it, come and get it
Even though you know the score
I will love you, I will hate you
Then I'll love you even more

Can you handle love?
Can you handle pain?
Can you handle everything I'm saying?

Love can build you up
Love can tear you down
Love can change the world
This is what I've found

Love can make you happy
Love can make you cry
Love can be the best
Til it's passed you by

(Love, love, love)

Love will capture you whole
With your body and soul
Love is taking control of your senses

Love is guilty as tried
Love has no alibi
Love is breaking down all your defenses
Love...

Love can make you sorry
Love can make you weep
Love can take you over
Even when you sleep

Love can give you heaven
Love can make you high
Love can make you cheat
And love can make you lie

Love can build you up
Love can tear you down
Love can change the world
This is what I've found

Love can make you happy
Love can make you cry
Love can be the best
Til it's passed you by

2006 – Every Song Is a Cry for Love – Brian Kennedy

 Music and Lyrics by Brian Kennedy.
10th/24  (93 points)
 (Qualified from Semi Final as 9th/23 with 79 points)
 



EVERY SONG IS A CRY FOR LOVE

Every song is a cry for love
Every voice can rise above
So don't be afraid
Just show what you're made of
Sing it out: every song is a cry for love
 
Every day is a brand new start
Every night you could fall apart
Anytime you doubt the truth that's in your heart
Sing it out: every song is a cry for love
 
Being strong, being tough
Never tender, always rough
It was never enough for me
 
In the dead of the night
Only love can hold you tight
Sing it out: every song is a cry for love
 
Every kiss is a call for home
Every touch means you're not alone
You don't always have to make it on your own
Sing it out: every song is a cry for love
 
Being strong, being tough
Never tender, always rough
It was never enough for me
 
In the dead of the night
Only love can hold you tight
Sing it out: every song is a cry for love
 
Sing it out: every song is a cry for love
Sing it out: every song is a cry for love
Every song is a cry for love

2007 – They Can’t Stop the Spring – Dervish

Music and Lyrics by John Waters & Tommy Moran.
24th/24  (5 points)



THEY CAN'T STOP THE SPRING

The curtain has been raised, the wall no longer stands
And from Lisadell to Latvia, we're singing as one clan
The curtain has been raised, and Europe's all one stage
And the archipelagic icicles have melted like the cage
 
We don't need no party, just a party band
A continental choir singing hand in hand
 
They might scare the blackbird
But they cannot stop him sing
They may steal the honey
But they'll never steal the sting
They may crush the flowers
Trample every living thing
But they can't stop the spring
 
They might scare the blackbird
But they cannot stop him sing
They may steal the honey
But they'll never steal the sting
They may crush the flowers
And trample every living thing
But they can't stop the spring
 
They might scare the blackbird
But they cannot stop him sing
They may steal the honey
But they'll never steal the sting
They may crush the flowers
And trample every living thing
But they can't stop the spring
 
No, they can't stop the spring

Drag acts and bad acts and Terry Wogan's wig

Give us your twelve today
You're all invited to Dublin, Ireland
And we'll party the Shamrock way

What a great and interesting thread, Ian!  :goodjob1: Thank you very much.  :)

I was checking the votes and I noticed that Finland has not been too generous to Ireland - only 1 x 12 pts in 1987.  :o

I must admit I've enjoyed doing these threads again and updating them with the scores and writers :D

The UK has certainly been a bit more generous to the Irish than Finland, especially in recent years :)

Some lovely Irish entries, and yet we've sent a good few atrocious ones.

1994 really is a class act altogether.

2009 – Et Cetera – Sinéad Mulvey & Black Daisy

Music and Lyrics by Niall Mooney, Christina Schilling, Daniele Moretti & Jonas Gladnikoff.
Non-Qualified Entry
(11th/19 in Semi Final 2 with 52 points)
 



ET CETERA

This time you've really gone too far
So sick of hearing stories
About the new girl hanging round
You're supposed to be with me   

And when I heard the rumour
You kissed her at a party
Like a jealous fool I ran to you
You were still mine   

That's just the way my life goes
Still love me, even she knows
You say you're sorry, but you're not   

Et cetera (Et cetera)
I heard that old song many times
But I still believe you really wanted her
I spent the day (I spent the day)
Deciding should I go or stay
Hoping that the pain would go away   

Remember how astounding
It felt to be around me
Extravaganza in the heat
And then the rain came pouring   

That's just the way my life goes
Still love me, even she knows
You say you're sorry, but you're not   

Et cetera (Et cetera)
I heard that old song many times
But I still believe you really wanted her
I spent the day (I spent the day)
Deciding should I go or stay
Hoping that the pain would go away   

That's just the way my life goes
Still love me, even she knows
You say you're sorry, but you're not   

Et cetera (Et cetera)
I heard that old song many times
But I still believe you really wanted her
I spent the day (I spent the day)
Deciding should I go or stay
Hoping that the pain will go away   

Et cetera

23rd/25  (25 points)
 (Qualified from Semi Final 2 as 9th (shared with Cyprus)/17 with 67 points)
 



IT’S FOR YOU

Look into these eyes, hold onto these hands, believe in this heartbeat
Though you're afraid that I might break, just hold on
Shadows only haunt you when darkness crowds your heart
So let the light of my love shine bright   

When I cry, it's for the lonely
When I pray, it's for the lost and stray
When I love like there's no tomorrow
No more words to say, it's for you   

Look straight ahead, hold onto your dreams, believe in this magic
Open your eyes, open your mind and it's there
Shadows only haunt you when darkness crowds your heart
So let the light of my love shine bright   

When I cry, it's for the lonely
When I pray, it's for the lost and stray
When I love like there's no tomorrow
No more words to say...   

When shadows haunt you and darkness crowds your heart
Let the light of my love shine bright   

When I cry, it's for the lonely
When I pray, it's for the lost and stray
When I love like there's no tomorrow
No more words to say, it's for you (It's for you)
It's for you

LIPSTICK

You say you're on it, but you just don't know
You're spending money like you're on death row
You must be mis-educated by all the guys that you dated
You think I'll take the bait, but I don't think so   

Oh... am I headed for a car crash?
Oh... I'm just about to meet my match, she takes the
Ho... I'm about to fall in, head first
Sisters, let me tell you how it works
Hey!   

She's got her lipstick on
Here I come, da da dum
She's got her lipstick on
Hit and run, then I'm gone
Check my collar, collar, hey, hey hey...
Check my collar, collar, hey, hey hey...   

Oh... oh...   

You look at me and I got you in mind
I come on over, see what I could find
No appetite for delusion
How could I win when I'm losin'?
You're saying yes, when it is no, no, no, no   

Oh... am I headed for a car crash?
Oh... I'm just about to meet my match, she takes the
Ho... I'm about to fall in, head first
Sisters, let me tell you how it works
Hey!   

She's got her lipstick on
Here I come, da da dum
She's got her lipstick on
Hit and run, then I'm gone
Check my collar, collar, hey, hey hey...
Check my collar, collar, hey, hey hey...   

She's got her lipstick on
Here I come, da da dum
She's got her lipstick on
Hit and run, then I'm gone
Check my collar, collar, hey, hey hey...
Check my collar, collar, hey   

It's not that I don't wanna play (play, play)
And then I didn't look your way (way, way)
It's not like every girl's the same (same, same)
You gotta know just how to treat this miss
She won't be dismissed
Hey...   

She's got her lipstick on
Here I come, da da dum
She's got her lipstick on
Hit and run, then I'm gone
Check my collar, collar, hey, hey hey...
Check my collar, collar, hey, hey hey...   

She's got her lipstick on
Here I come, da da dum
She's got her lipstick on
Hit and run, then I'm gone
Check my collar, collar, hey, hey hey...
Check my collar, collar, hey, hey hey...   

Here I come, here I come
Dum da dum, da dum, da dum...
Here I come, here I come
Dum da dum, da dum, da dum...   

Hit and run, hit and run
Dum da dum, da dum, da dum...
Then I'm gone, then I'm gone
Gone, gone, gone, gone
