Cliffs of Moher Ireland

One of my favourite places on this earth, it can bring me to rears.

(If the video does not play here on the blog follow the link underneath to its YouTube location)

So I say a little prayer
And hope my dreams will take me there
Where the skies are blue to see you once again, my love.
Over seas from coast to coast
To find the place I love the most
Where the fields are green to see you once again, my love.
