Find a way home


I would never have dreamt on the first day I came
I would still be in London to-day
To return home I've tried but my hopes have long died
Work in Ireland is further away
And I can't seem to find a way home
I can't seem to find a way home
But to give up my soul and go back on that dole
That would seem is the only way home
And I can't seem to find a way home
I can't seem to find a way home

My mother, she's hopin' some day they'll re-open
That factory that's down near Athy
What use is there writin' a job application
There's never a word of reply
I can't seem to find a way home
Can't seem to find a way home
A lost generation in forced emigration
How many will never return
For we can't seem to find a way home
We can't seem to find a way home.
