So Near

I see the lights of Dublin as they shine across the bay
I take the path we used to walk before you went away
The only sound I hear is my own footsteps on the ground
And the words you sang inside my head turning round and round

CHORUS
Your song is in my memory, I hear it night and day
Like the skyline in the distance, so near and yet so far away
So near and yet so far away

I hear a foghorn blowing in the early light of dawn
It wakes me from my dreaming just to find that you are gone
With the ocean in between us, all I do is count the time
As you lie alone in your bed and I lie alone in mine

Oh I count the hours ’til I’ll hear your voice upon the phone
And I’m marking every date off ’til the night when you’ll come home

I see the lights of Dublin as they shine across the bay
I take the path we used to walk before you went away
With the ocean in between us, all I do is count the time
As you lie alone in your bed and I lie alone in mine
