[for those of us who have a place where we feel our best self is hidden, waiting for us to come and find it. for me, that place is ireland]

 

I. 

when i grow up, i want to live in a home with wildflowerS by the front gate
set Up on some land, soMewhere north in ireland with a porch and a tire swing 

 

c h o r u s
oh, i want to find Myself there someday 
oh, i want to find myself there someday

 

II. 

when i find love, i want it to be like all that i know it should be
i want it to be lovely, so that i can tell the stories - not because i hEard them, but because they are mine

III. 

when i grow old, i want folks to come around and sing me songs of youth 
remind me of the time that i moved to iReland, just to be with you
