Hello dear readers of Eurovision Ireland!

Today we are happy to announce the start of a new series: One Day Love!

Each week we will celebrate one song from Eurovision History. Here, you will find facts like: year, country, artist, title of the song, lyrics (translations when the song is in another language other than English), video, points and placement in the semi-final, final or even national final (if the song only performed at that stage of the competition).

Without further ado, here is our first One Day Love!

Year: 1971

Country: Ireland

Artist: Angela Farrell

Title: One Day Love

Lyrics:

One day love

You love for a day
Then you go on your way
Breaking hearts, lonely hearts
Though they want you to stay

Then you laugh, how you laugh
When the tears start to fall
Turn your back, one day love
Wave your hand to them all

Yesterday, lovely day
I was yours for a while
In your arms there was peace
As you kissed with a smile

Words of love, empty words
Whispered close to my ear
They were lies, only lies
But I held them so dear

How can you be so deceiving?
Why do you injure my pride?
Building me up with your promises
Only to throw me aside

How many hearts have you broken
Closing your ears to their cries?
How many times have you cheated and lied
With a look of deceit in your eyes?

One day soon, very soon
Deep in love you will fall
And the one that you want
Will not answer your call

So beware and have care
Take advice from a friend
Your kind of love, one day love
Will come to an end

How can you be so deceiving?
Why do you injure my pride?
Building me up with your promises
Only to throw me aside

How many hearts have you broken
Closing your ears to their cries?
How many times have you cheated and lied
With a look of deceit in your eyes?

One day soon, very soon
Deep in love you will fall
And the one that you want
Will not answer your call

So beware and have care
Take advice from a friend
Your kind of love, one day love
Will end
