God are you with me

My God are you with me

When I'm alone and have time to think, my mind is in full control
I think of my country and other things, I search around my soul
I go to places that make me feel good and others make me sad
I remember times gone bye with mum and dad, it was about them and me
I was with them free just them and me, and loved those times we shared
My mind wandered to happy times, we played and shared, so happy I could cry
I was free, yes you and me. My God you were with me, I ask you why
Things changed from my childhood days with my mum and dad, so sad
I soon found out my country of Ireland did not belong to the people of this nation
I became confused as a child that this is not my country. As Marley said Emancipation
My country changed when I was young, they told me a foreign the army came to-day
I was confused and asked my God, please make my thoughts go away.
I want my mum and dad days back again, it's all about them and me
I hope I don't sound selfish. I just want to live in my country and be free
Don't leave me Lord. Please hear my plea, help me if you can
I want the thoughts inside my mind to let me know I'm free
