​Ireland

This song is by Jess Klein and appears on the album Draw Them Near (2000).

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
