Here The Guitar Chords - By Angela(A - D)
 
Look in my eyes, tell me what do you see,
Are you (A) looking for someone that (D) just isn't me.
Why your trying to (D7) change me I (G) don't under(D)stand.
Won't you (A) leave me the way that I (D) am.

How can you tell me the way that I feel,
Your (A) turning my thoughts, every(D)thing's so unclear.
And how can you (D7) know what I (G) feel in my (D) heart.
When we're (A) ten million light years a(D)part.

(A) Leave me to make mistakes, (G) leave me to (D) heal the breaks
(A) Leave - what you don't under(D)stand,
(A) Leave me to live my life, (G) find out what's (D) wrong or right.
(A) Leave me - the way that I (D) am.
 
(A – D)

True friends are with you in good times or bad,
They (A) laugh when your happy, they (D) cry when your sad.
They don't try to (D7) change any(G)thing that you (D) do,
They (A) love you for just being (D) you.

So go on your way, I don't want you here,
I (A) don't need the anguish, I (D) don't need the fear.
I'll bid you fare(D7)well with a (G) wave of my (D) hand.
And I'll (A) stay just the way that I (D) am.

(A) Leave me to make mistakes, (G) leave me to (D) heal the breaks
(A) Leave - what you don't under(D)stand,
(A) Leave me to live my life, (G)find out what's (D) wrong or right.
(A) Leave me - the way that I (D) am.

(A) Leave me to make mistakes, (G) leave me to (D) heal the breaks
(A) Leave - what you don't under(D)stand,
(A) Leave me to live my life, (G)find out what's (D) wrong or right.
(A) Leave me - the way that I (D) am.
won’t you (A) leave me the way that I (D) am

Leave Me The Way That I Am, Lyrics 
Look in my eyes, tell me what do you see,
Are you looking for someone that just isn't me.
Why your trying to change me I don't understand.
Won't you leave me the way that I am.

How can you tell me the way that I feel,
Your turning my thoughts, every thing's so unclear.
And how can you know what I feel in my heart.
When we're ten million light years apart.

Leave me to make mistakes, leave me to heal the breaks
Leave what you don't understand,
Leave me to live my life, find out what's wrong or right.
Leave me the way that I am.

True friends are with you in good times or bad,
They laugh when your happy, they cry when your sad.
They don't try to change anything that you do,
They love you for just being you.

So go on your way I don't want you here,
I don't need the anguish, I don't need the fear.
I'll bid you farewell with a wave of my hand.
And I'll stay just the way that I am.

Leave me to make mistakes, leave me to heal the breaks
Leave what you don't understand,
Leave me to live my life, find out what's wrong or right.
Leave me the way that I am.
Repeat Chorus By 2.
 
 
 

Lough Ree Lyrics Isla Grant.
As I sit here by the window on this lovely autumn day,
I look out on the waters of Lough Ree,
I see the small boats drifting by, I hear the Seagulls cry.
And there's no place else on earth I'd rather be.

The trees are slowly turning with the seasons,
Their leaves are changing now to autumn gold.
Is there any wonder why, there's a teardrop in my eye,
As the magic of Lough Ree starts to unfold.

Lough Ree Oh Lough Ree I've come to see you now for years,
Still the beauty that surrounds you, still makes me shed a tear,
There's something truly magic, that's the way you make me feel,
It's where I long to be, looking out across Lough Ree.

And when I'm far away from you somehow I seem to know,
That when the sun sets over you the sky is all alone,
And old friends that I left behind, I know some day I'll see.
When I go again to visit you, Lough Ree.

My heart is soar each time I have to leave you,
But still you live within my memory,
But I'll be back some day, you know I could not stay away.
From the place I love to see again Lough Ree.

Lough Ree Oh Lough Ree I've come to see you now for years,
Still the beauty that surrounds you, still makes me shed a tear,
There's something truly magic, that's the way you make me feel,
It's where I long to be, looking out across Lough Ree.

The Guitar Chords , Intro G – C – D – G
 
As I sit here by the window on this (C) lovely autumn (G) day,
I (Bm) look out on the waters of Lough (D) Ree,
I (G) see the small boats drifting by, I (C) hear the seagulls (G) cry.
And there's (G) no place else on (D) earth I'd (D7) rather (G) be.
The (C) trees are slowly turning with the (G) seasons,
Their (Bm) leaves are changing now to autumn (D) gold.
Is there (G) any wonder why, there's a (C) teardrop in my eye,
As the (G) magic of Lough (D) Ree (D7) starts to un(G)fold.
Lough (C) Ree, oh Lough Ree I've come to (G) see you now for years,
Still the (Bm) beauty that surrounds you, - still (D) makes me shed a tear,
There's (C) something truly magic, - it's the (G) way you make me feel,
It's where I long to be - looking (D) out a(D7)cross Lough (G) Ree.
 
(One semitone up)
And when I'm far away from you some(C)how I seem to (G) know,
That (Bm) when the sun sets over you the (D) sky is all alone,
And (G) old friends that I left behind, I (C) know some day I'll (G) see.
When I (G) go again to (D) visit (D7) you, Lough (G) Ree.
My (C) heart is soar each time I have to (G) leave you,
But (b) still you live within my memo(D)ry,
But (G) I'll be back some day, you know I (C) could not stay a(G)way.
From the (G) place I long to (D) see a(D7)gain Lough (G) Ree.
Lough (C) Ree, oh Lough Ree I've come to (G) see you now for years,
Still the (Bm) beauty that surrounds you, still (D) makes me shed a tear,
There's (C) something truly magic, it's the (G) way you make me feel,
It's where I long to be - looking (D) out a(D7)cross Lough (G) Ree.
It's where I long to be - looking (D) out a(D7)cross Lough (G) Ree.

An Accordion Started To Play Lyrics
We danced 'round the room to an old fashioned tune
An accordion started to play,
As we danced to the strings of the sweet melody,
My thoughts seemed to drift far away,

To a place long ago, where we both used to go
Where we danced 'till the dawn of the day.
Where old friends would gather, in all kinds of weather.
And pass all the hours away.

As we waltzed 'round the room, to an old fashioned tune,
I knew you had something to say.
When you told me you loved me, you'd always be mine,
I could an accordion play.

Many years have gone by since we wed you and I,
And we promised we'd always be true,
All the good times we've had and the times I've been sad.
Happy [meetings ?] because I've had you.

And the gold wedding band that you placed on my hand,
On that wonderful day long ago.
Oh sweet memories here in my mind so clear,
It's no wonder that I love you so.

As we waltzed 'round the room, to an old fashioned tune,
I knew you had something to say.
When you told me you loved me, you'd always be mine,
I could an accordion play.

Over The Years.
Over the years I have travelled many lands
Over the years I have come to understand.
That down the pathe of life there are joys and there are tears.
Many lessons I have learned, over the years.

It seems like many years ago I packed my bags and had to go.
Along the many highways far and wide.
To Cities I have never seen, to countries I have never been.
The strangers that I met became the best friends in my life.

Over the years I have travelled many lands
Over the years I have come to understand.
That down the pathe of life there are joys and there are tears.
Many lessons I have learned, over the years.

Things with silver wings have taken me so far away,
To places of great beauty, neon lights as bright as day,
But even with good friens around, when I'm all alone.
Constantly my mind returns to loved one's and to home.
[Repeat Chorus]
