Song Description

This is a song about a girl from a small town in Ireland who is trying to find herself sung through the eyes of a stranger.

Lyrics

Maggie works in a hotel
In a quiet seaside town
Turning 19 on her birthday
It's soon coming around

The girls and her are planning what there gonna do that night one things for certain they'll get wasted in style

She left school just over a year ago, been waiting tables ever since cause it's real hard to know, what's gonna keep her happy, gonna keep her close to home
Ambition's not a thing from which she's grown...

Maggie, don't you bury your head in the sand
You're heavy now with worry that's weighing you down
And Maggie don't you shut tight those blazing blue Atlantic Eyes

She's real close to her sister whose name is Evonne
She went off to college once but didn't stay away too long
See these small town girls from way up north
Find it hard to shed their skin find it hard to break the cord

But I wouldn't wish on you my shallow city life the town you come from is real just don't let it leave you bitter inside and Maggie don't you shut tight those blazing blue Atlantic Eyes

I want to take you out
I want to hear you speak
Just to tell me about
All the dreams you keep

Maggie I wouldn't wish on you my shallow city life the town you come from is real just don't let it leave you bitter inside. A diamond in the rough is the hardest thing to find but I can see it clearly in those Atlantic Eyes.
