P.J. Walsh - Bright Street

Looking at once emerald fields and such wide open space
Spotted now with brown has left great hunger in its place
I know I must fly south away
Will we meet again one day
I hope they have a pub or two on Bright Street

Across the terracotta rooftops lies a turquoise sea
Once bountiful but now so bare, that just shouldn't be
I know I must sail west away
Will we dance again one day
I hope they have a dance club there on Bright Street

Tried to pull the silver from a snowy ledged mountain
I only got to change my lady's roof from sod to tin
I know I must ride east away
Will we sing again one day
I hope they have a music hall on Bright Street
I hope they have a music hall on Bright Street


Ancestors came from far away
And it's always been a joyous place to stay
But I can't see the horizon anymore
And there are those who want to close the door

The leaves have since turned brown and fallen from their limbs
It seems the lights on Bright Street have started to grow dim
I fear I must skate north away
Am I to return one day
It's time I leave to seek out my new Bright Street
I hope they have a pub or two on Bright Street

I can see it in my mind everything will be just fine
When we get to live our lives on Bright Street
