I once met a young girl filled with fire
That saw through my front to the shell of a man
She knew, I'd be a handful from the start
This strong willed woman had an angel's 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

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 have been there as you were through heartache and hardship
My life and my love are pledged to you

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

Remember the nights, she waited and wondered
Fused to a myth that had taken its 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
But now I'll honor and obey, forever stay
True to you, my Irish rose

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