Lyrics

Now the fire is burning low
And it will soon be time to go
As the night turns into dawn
With the light I'll soon be gone
So kiss me once before I go
And say my name out soft and low
And as I turn on down the road
Your kiss will lighten up my load

And though I know I never will return
Inside the hope will always burn
That we may meet in some place once again
And you and I will still be friends
The sun is shining brightly on the mountains and the sea
The waves run white round Inis Mór
The ship lies in the harbour waiting for the evening breeze
To take us to some foreign shore

The world we lived in now is past
And winds of change are coming fast
What once was holy now just seems
To be a world of broken dreams
So kiss me once and say goodbye
And we will try hard not to cry
These tumbling thoughts going through my head
Will stay forever left unsaid

And though I know I never will return
Inside the hope will always burn
That we may meet in some place once again
And you and I will still be friends
The sun is shining brightly on the mountains and the sea
The waves run white round Inis Mór
The ship lies in the harbour waiting for the evening breeze
To take us to some foreign shore

Too many trials, too many tears
Too many tired and hungry years
But I will not forget the land
Where you and I walked hand in hand
So kiss me once before I go
And say my name out soft and low
And as I turn on down the road
Your kiss will lighten up my load

And though I know I never will return
Inside the hope will always burn
That we may meet in some place once again
And you and I will still be friends
The sun is shining brightly on the mountains and the sea
The waves run white round Inis Mór
The ship lies in the harbour waiting for the evening breeze
To take us to some foreign shore
