Rained down by wine, circled 'round by smoke
Your rosy cheeks take on a glow
You think I don't understand
But I understand

Sunny dreams born leap into the air
Then fade into smoke
You won't tell me where
But I know where

'Cause in Ireland you say
Oh, the air they breathe is clean
So I pray, I pray, I pray
For the rain
Make me green

People that you love, they could always leave
They could leave the room
Even when you're tugging at their sleeve
But the trouble is
They leave if you don't dare believe
When I said I was leaving baby
Had you already gone there?

To in Ireland you say
The air they breathe is clean
So I pray, I pray, I pray
For the rain
Make me green

Green enough to be your heaven
Green enough to be your sea
Greener than the rolling hills
Could you ever see that in me?

Rained down by wine, circled 'round by smoke
All you talk about is where you would go
When you look at me,
Do you love this world yet?
Or do you see how much better it could get?

In Ireland you say
The air they breathe is clean
So I pray, I pray, I pray
For the rain
In Ireland you say
The air they breathe is clean
So I pray, I pray, I pray
For the rain
Make me green

That's so funny, I was about to post "Does anyone else think she sounds like Susanna Hoffs?" Obviously, someone else does.
:lol: I think so, too.

I wont visit "oirish" pubs as they are a disgrace to authentic Irish pubs, which can only be found in... Ireland. By the same logic, this track has faux leather bound copies of Ulysses, 'antique' farm implements and Guinness mirrors everywhere you look. But no craic.
Quite agree. It is interesting to compare with the comments some RPers have made about the Corrs just before this was played. At least the Corrs actually come from 'Oirland'
Like this too. Not sure about the rest of the album, but her Strawberry Lover is a great one. Laurie

The Bangles reincarnate.
The unplugged, acoustic, roots-rock version of the Bangles, perhaps. . . . Not that there's anything wrong with that. . . . Or with the Bangles in general. . . . Which is a long way 'round to say that I like this piece.

Haunting, evocative, beautiful. It did make me think of the gray-stone beaches of Galway Bay and the rolling blue-grass hillsides of Kildare and Carlow, all with the sky seeming so very close overhead. Now I miss it so much that I need to work on a plan to return sooner than I thought. Thanks to this song.
Think I can help here)))) I live in Kildare and right now the weather really sucks!!! The blue-grass is covered in sheep sh1t))) Galway though- thats another story... sigh Nice song too
Wow I thought that was the Bangles -- I miss them - very nice! --Shari
Sounds like what you\'d get if you mixed Jewel and Dido.

The Bangles reincarnate. :roll:
such a sweet voice
Pretty song, but when the volume is not high enough (as it has to be at work) she sounds exactly like Stevie Nicks, which is a little disconcerting.
I love this song, plain and simple. :)
so glad to see you playing Jess, how bout some voices on the verge too
Very tasteful.
