Every Beat of My Heart

Through these misty eyes 

I see lonely skies

Lonely road to Babylon



Where's my family

And my country

Heaven knows where I belong



Pack my bags tonight

Here's one Jacobite

Who must leave or surely die



Put me on a train

In the pouring rain 

Say farewell but don't say goodbye



Seagull carry me, over land and sea

To my own folk, that's where I want to be

Every beat of my heart

Tears me further apart

I'm lost and alone in the dark

I'm going home



One more glass of wine

Just for auld lang syne

And the girl I left behind



How I miss her now 

In my darkest hour

And the way our arms entwine



Seagull carry me, over land and sea

To my own folk, that's where I want to be

Every beat of my heart

Tears me further apart

I'm lost and alone in the dark

I'm going home



And we'll drink a toast

To the blood red rose

Cheer a while the Emerald Isle



And to the northern lights

And the swirling pipes

How they make a grown man cry



Seagull carry me, over land and sea

To my own folk, that's where I want to be

Every beat of my heart

Tears me further apart

I'm lost and alone in the dark

I'm going home



Every beat of my heart

Tears me further apart

I'm lost and alone in the dark

I'm going home
