Track Name: Don't You Cry
You're five years old and you're full of life,
And I love to see you play,
You got your mommy's eyes and your daddy's pride,
And you show it every day,

And I hate to see you fall down,
Cos your smile goes away,
But I'm always there to pick you up,
And kiss your tears away,

So don't you cry my baby girl,
I'll never leave your side,
It's just a scrape on the knee today,
But I'm always on your side,

The days have gone and you're sixteen now,
And you're oh so very smart,
But the boy you love didn't feel that way,
And he broke your precious heart,

And I hate to see you down and out,
Cos your smile goes away,
But just you wait cos your daddy's sure,
The right one is on his way,

So don't you cry my baby girl,
I'll never leave your side,
There's such a pain in your heart today,
But I'm always on your side,

I said, Don't you cry my baby girl,
I'll never leave your side,
There's such a pain in your heart today,
But I'm always on your side,

You're all grown up with your white dress on,
And I'm giving you away,
And I do my best to hold it back,
Remembering the days,

You skinned your knee and I picked you up,
And I kissed your tears away,
And I held you close when your little heart broke,
And I hugged the pain away,

And now I walk you down the isle,
And tears roll down your face,
But before I say her mother and I,
I lean to you and say...

I say, Don't you cry my baby girl,
I'll never leave your side,
Cos even though you're going away,
I'm always on your side,

I said don't you cry my baby girl,
I'll never leave your side,
Cos even though you're going away,
I'm always on your side.
Track Name: Goodbye
This isn't how I thought it would be,
But it isn't over yet,
Cos I've still got you here with me,
Clinging to your every breath,

There's so much left,
To say to you,
But I never got the chance,
And if I have just one more rainy day,
I'd take your hand and dance,

So close your eyes,
I'll still be here in the morning,
Take my hand,
I know you'll make it through,
Close your eyes,
I'll still be here in the morning,
When the sun comes up,
I know I'll be with you,

Well I've never been too good with goodbye,
And your time is nearly through,
But before I hang my head and cry,
I send these words to you,

Close your eyes,
I'll still be here in the morning,
Take my hand,
I know you'll make it through,
Close your eyes,
I'll still be here in the morning,
When the sun comes up,
I know I'll be with you,

Cos I loved you every day,
With every thing inside,
And you'll always have my heart,
Even way up in the sky,

So close your eyes,
I'll still be here in the morning,
Take my hand,
I know you'll make it through,
But if you don't,
I'll still be here in the morning,
For one last time,
To tell you I love you.
Track Name: Irish Eyes
We're a long, long way from home,
This feels all right too,
I feel, right at home,
As long as I have you,

Underneath the purple sky,
We watched the Irish fight,
Conversations with the Knights,
Beneath the propane light,

They sang their songs and we sang along,
Or at least I think we tried,
I walk the shore as the sun went down,
With you right by my side,

So afraid as the rope bridge swayed,
Underneath our feet,
We walked the stones where the giants roamed,
And drank a lot of tea,
Leave the car it's not too far,
It's closer than you know,
We'll be there forever paired,
In heart, in mind, in soul,

We're a long, long way from home,
This feels all right too,
I feel, right at home,
As long as I have you,

If you feel you don't belong,
There's someone out there too,
Just take a trip across the pond,
And we'll be here for you,
There's so much more on another shore,
You'll find it if you try,
You'll see the world as I have seen,
Through humble Irish eyes,

We're a long, long way from home,
This feels all right too,
I feel, right at home,
As long as I have you,
