izquierdaThe Stars Over Kinvaraderecha

Through dark summer nights on his racing bike
Your great granda Miko Killeen
When art classes were done in Galway town
Cycled home the miles between
And the moon overhead
Led him home as he sped
'Til the stars over Kinvara
Said Welcome home

Long before I ran to be your aul man
I dreamed of living here
Where Atlantic waves neath Dunguaire's gaze
Keep the air so fresh and clear
I was 25 when I first laid eyes
On where I knew I'd find
My children's eyes
And the stars over Kinvara
Said Welcome home

That first night I drove you and mammy home
I pulled over in Ballindereen
I just had to pull in. I had never seen
Such a sky of gems that gleamed
Orion was out, and the starry plough
All the night was on display
Over The Burren, the road, and the bay
There were ten more lights that shone
For each one of our own passed on
And I dreamed that Miko too
Was shining down on you

When the stars over Kinvara said Welcome home
When the stars over Kinvara said Welcome home!
