Marianne Faithfull - Ireland Lyrics




There is a land that I can go to
When I have time to rest
All the people I love are there
And those who love me best

Then I heard the wind
Calling from over the sea
Saying Ireland, Ireland
When will you be free
Ireland, Ireland
When will you be free

This land I go to when I'm tired
And need to see and walk in green
The people who can laugh and drink
And see things others have not seen

Then I heard the wind
Calling from over the sea
Saying Ireland, Ireland
When will you be free
Ireland, Ireland
When will you be free

There is another side to this pure land
A side of blood and guilt and pain
A side of enemy and friend
And sorrow at the hearthside stain

Then I heard the wind
Crying from over the sea
Saying Ireland, Ireland
When will you be free
Ireland, Ireland
When will you be free

There is a land that I can go to
When I have time to rest
All the people I love are there
And those who love me best

Then I heard the wind
Calling from over the sea
Saying Ireland, Ireland
When will you be free
Ireland, Ireland
When will you be free

Ireland, Ireland
When will you be free
Ireland, Ireland
When will you be free

    So, I'm listening to this song years ago and Marianne sings 'Ireland, Ireland, when will you be free?' My sister, without even glancing up from the book she's reading, answers 'When the last Pope dies.'
