Lyrics:On Grafton Street at Christmas time
The elbows push you 'round.
This is not my place of
memories -
I'm a stranger in this town.

The faces seem familiar,
And I know those
songs they're playing.
But I close my eyes and find myself
Five thousand miles
away.

It's funny how my world goes 'round without you -
You're the one thing I never
thought I could live without.
I just found this smile to think about you;
You're a Saturday
night far from the madding crowd.

The buskers sing by candle light
In front of
Bewley's Store,
And a young nun offers me a chair
At a table by the door.

And I
feel compelled to tell her
Of the sisters that we knew,
How when they lit their
candles
I'd say a prayer for you.

It's funny how my world goes 'round without you
-
You're the one thing I never thought I could live without.
I just found this smile to
think about you;
You're a Saturday night far from the madding crowd.

The church bells
ring for holy hour,
I'm back out in the rain.
It's been twenty years or more
Since I
last said your name.

I hear you live near Dallas now
In a house out on the
plains;
Why Grafton Street brought you to mind
I really can't explain.

It's funny
how my world goes 'round without you -
You're the one thing I never thought I could live
without.
I just found this smile to think about you;
You're a Saturday night far from the
madding crowd.

On Grafton Street at Christmas time
The elbows push you 'round.
All
I carry now are memories -
I'm a stranger to this town.
