Black Irish Heart

Well the clouds come for you today
Washed the shine right out of your eyes
And it's cold cold cold by your fireside
And you don't feel no hope along the way  

Got a demon riding on your shoulder
Filling your ears with cinders and smoke
And your words your words your words come out in a choke
And you're thinking that you're only getting older  

Blow out the ashes
Of your black Irish heart
And come back to me
Please come back to me  

November blows ice into your bones
Baby nothing can keep away the storms 
You gotta love love love to stay warm
Or you'll freeze and you'll shiver all alone  

Blow out the ashes
Of your black Irish heart
And come back to me
Please come back to me  

But the winter is just another season
And your heart will replant and regrow
And the sun the sun the sun will come back home
And your love will be the only reason  

Blow out the ashes
Of your black Irish heart
And come back to me
Please come back to me
