  • Deep inside
    My soul fights a war
    I can't explain
    I can't cross over any more
    All I see are dirty faces
    Rain and wire
    And common sense in pieces
    But I try to see through Irish eyes, Belfast.

    Look outside
    Summer's lost and gone
    It's a long walk
    On a street of right and wrong
    In every inch of sadness
    Rock and tanks
    Go hand in hand with madness
    But I never saw a braver place, Belfast.

    And it's sad when they sing
    And hollow ears listen
    Of smokin' black roses
    On the streets of Belfast
    And so say your lovers
    From under the flowers
    Every foot of this world
    Needs an inch of Belfast

    Who's to say
    On whom Heaven smiles
    Our different ways
    We try harder to recognize
    No more enchanted evenings
    The pubs are closed
    And all the ghosts are leaving
    But you'll never let them shut you down,
    Belfast.

    And it's sad when they sing
    And hollow ears listen
    Of smokin' black roses
    On the streets of Belfast
    And so say your lovers
    From under the flowers
    Every foot of this world
    Needs an inch of Belfast

    The enemy is not at home
    A jealous green
    Streaks down this faulty diamond
    No bloody boots or crucifix
    Can ever hope to split this emerald island
    But I never saw a braver place,
    Belfast.
