CHRISTY MOORE


Motherland Lyrics

Where in hell can you go, far from the things that you
know,
Far from this concrete sprawl that keeps crawling it's
way,
About a thousand miles a day.

Take one last look behind, commit this to memory and
mind,
Don't miss this wasteland, this terrible place, when
you leave,
Keep your heart off your sleeve.

Motherland cradle me, close my eyes lullaby me to
sleep,
Keep me safe, lie with me stay beside me don't go.

My five and dime queen, tell me what have you seen,
The lust and the avarice the bottomless cavernous
greed,
Is that what you see?

Motherland cradle me, close my eyes lullaby me to
sleep,
Keep me safe, lie with me stay beside me don't go.

It's your happiness I want most of all and for that I'd
do anything at all.
If you want the best of life and the most of love,
If there is anything I can do at all.

Come on shotgun bride, what makes me envy your life,
The faceless the nameless the innocent the blameless
and free,
What's that like to be?

Motherland cradle me, close my eyes lullaby me to
sleep,
Keep me safe lie with me stay beside me don't go,
Don't you go ...
