The New Ground / Isle Of Hope, Isle Of Tears - Celtic Woman (凱爾特女人)

On the first day of January

 

Eighteen ninety two

 

They opened ellis island

 

And they let the people through

 

And the first to cross the treshold

 

Of that isle of hope and tears

 

Was annie more from ireland

 

Who was all of fifteen years

 

Isle of hope isle of tears

 

Isle of freedom isle of fears

 

But it's not the isle you left behind

 

That isle of hunger isle of pain

 

Isle you'll never see again

 

But the isle of home

 

Is always on your mind

 

In a little bag she carried

 

All her past and history

 

And her dreams for the future

 

In the land of liberty

 

And courage is the passport

 

When your old world disappears

 

But there's no future in the past

 

When you're fifteen years

 

Isle of hope isle of tears

 

Isle of freedom isle of fears

 

But it's not the isle you left behind

 

That isle of hunger isle of pain

 

Isle you'll never see again

 

But the isle of home

 

Is always on your mind

 

When they closed down ellis island

 

In nineteen forty three

 

Seventeen million people

 

Had come there for sanctuary

 

And in springtime when I came here

 

And I stepped onto it's piers

 

I thought of how it must have been

 

When you're fifteen years

 

Isle of hope isle of tears

 

Isle of freedom isle of fears

 

But it's not the isle you left behind

 

That isle of hunger isle of pain

 

Isle you'll never see again

 

But the isle of home

 

Is always on your mind

 

Isle of hope isle of tears

 

Isle of freedom isle of fears

 

But it's not the isle you left behind

 

That isle of hunger isle of pain

 

Isle you'll never see again

 

But the isle of home

 

Is always on your mind

 

But the isle of home

 

Is always on your mind
