about

The word Dublin literally translates to a black pool, which is why the city was built where it is. And black pools, like Dublin eyes, are mesmerizing.

lyrics

DUBLIN EYES
© Bob Wright

they’re as black
as a total eclipse of the sun
harbors of brilliance and light
deep as a pool where a wide river bends
are your beautiful Dublin eyes

Dublin... Dublin
was built... by a beautiful pool
And like... Dublin
I’d build a city for you

there have been others
who’ve tried for my heart
I let them all pass me by
cause I was enchanted the moment I saw
your beautiful Dublin eyes

Dublin... Dublin
was built... by a beautiful pool
And like... Dublin
I’d build a city for you

there are traces of starlight
of places you’ve been
of all of the times that you cried
but its power and strength
that intrigues me the most
in your beautiful Dublin eyes

Dublin... Dublin
was built... by a beautiful pool
And like... Dublin
I’d build a city for you

They’re as black
as a total eclipse of the sun
harbors of brilliance and light
deep as a pool where a wide river bends
are your beautiful Dublin eyes

Dublin... Dublin
was built... by a beautiful pool
And like... Dublin
I’d build a city for you

They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
