- Lyrics / Music: Dropkick Murphys (Casey, Barton, Kelly) -

I once met a young girl filled with fire, That saw through my front to this shell of a man
She knew I'd be a handful from the start, This strong willed woman had an angels heart
The holes in these wings don't allow me to fly
So you'd better brace for a life of pain, And if fate is the path to this better life
Somehow I feel you'll never see the faces change

Chorus:
Through thick and thin, She stood by you
She held the key to my broken heart

I look back and wonder, Sit and ponder. How I could have ever neglected you.
For the blood soaked soil on the old ball field, I gambled on a hand I wasn't ready to lose
But if the tables were turned and I faced the troubles, Tough times and struggles I put you through
I'd of been there as you were through heartache and hardship
My life and my love are pledged to you.

Chorus:

Remember the nights she waited and wondered, fused to a myth that it had taken it's toll.
But this Godless man has mended his way, Never again will she be alone.

I remember it well, Still I always knew that she was destined to be my bride
This woman had pride, She was full of life. I could see the passion in her eyes.
She thought she found a man, But she fell for the devil
An evil monster in disguise. Now I'll honor and obey, Forever stay.
True to you, my Irish rose

Chorus:
