Close Your Eyes

Close Your Eyes              June 13, 2015

You can reach an Irish hero
Close your eyes in bed at night
You'll leave the world behind you
You'll join the dream so true
When you meet them, don't be frightened
They're charming, as we know
They'll greet you as a friend
They'll talk about the end
The day that they left Ireland
The dream they left behind
Killed for freedom, so they say
Just say hello and show them love
In the spirit of the dove
There are many heroes in our past
Connolly, Bobby will say hello
Strongmen, from before, you never know
Meet heroes in your dream
God Bless Ireland
Respect the heroes
Heroes of the past
You can reach an Irish hero
Close your eyes in bed at night
