I scrapped my car back on new year's day
But memories of Dublin refuse to fade
We booked the ferry on the night before
Your accordion, my guitar, and headed for the shore

And dolphins play on Killiney Bay
Heard your laugh in the sunshine that crisp December day
Six pints of Guinness, a bottle of Tullamore Dew
I know I'm going back there but I dare say, without you

And I come to you now
Bring the past up to bear
Singing Dublin City in the Rare Old Times
Looking out over the sea as the light declines

It was time that I yearned for in seasons oh so long
I asked and I waited for you
And if I didn't give you everything, if I felt afraid
I guess somewhere deep down we both knew...

But we spent the night in that old LDV
One lighted candle, cheese and wine, and you and me
And the bed's too short now, that night was long
Singing Roll On Winter and our midsummer songs

I gave you much, I didn't give you all
I was careful with my words, I refused to be your fool
But at least we connected, and something in me grew
Didn't know a breakup could be beautiful, now I do

Cos I come to you now...

Scrapped my car back on new year's day
Memories of Dublin, refuse to fade
Ring-a-rosie cheeks and a broken tooth
In a smile just for me.
