I have travelled far over the ocean,
To a land that is lovely and fair
But of my Dublin bay I am dreaming
my heart it will always be there.
When shadows of evening are stealing,
And the lights of the city are gay,
Sure the lights that I see
in my memory,
Are shining on my Dublin Bay.
I have riches and rings on my fingers,
But my lonelyness I can't disguise,
How I long for the love light that
Of the sunshine of soft Irish eyes.
This song from my heart I am singing,
From a heart that's more lonely each day,
Can it be I can only be dreaming,
love once by my Dublin Bay.
