Celtic Thunder – Katie lyrics

Tumbling curls of green
With the stained glass streaming light
And the yellow-colored lampshade
Used to keep us up all night
The smile upon your face
And the tears upon your cheek
The night sky on the window
And your heart calling out to me

Come running home again Katie
Come running home again
Cross my heart and hope to die
Shall I cause another tear from your eye?

The mirror that won't talk
And your nightgown on the door
The old pedal-singer just won't sing
No more
You can roll the reels for hours
From the movie of this book
It's a question mark on this heart of mine
Sends an elder back to look


Now I'm looking through a tunnel
Back into the room
The genius of a druid
And the sunlight floods the tomb
And I'm never going back there
I couldn't anyway
And though I made the great escape
I never got away
