Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Nothing to Show for It All (Kieran Halpin
I've been too long away from your lovin',
Too long my back to the wall,
I've been to some faraway places, with nothin' to show for it all.
CHORUS: I've been too long away from this country,
Too long not heeding your call,
Now I'm back like some war weary sailor,
With nothin' to show for it all.
I've been to your sites and showcases
Marched to your strong city halls
Men in black suits with no faces
With nothing to show for it all. CHORUS
I've heard all the stories they tell you,
Some I can barely recall,
It's hard when the tide turns against you'
It's all you can do not to fall. CHORUS
I've taken the jibes and the jester.
I've laughed at your jokes through it all
They said go back to that place where you come from
Got nothing to give us after all. CHORUS
Breath easy theres someone there waiting,
Someone who cares after all!
