    When you came in my life you changed my world
    My Sarah
    Everything seemed so right my baby girl
    My Sarah

    You are all I want to know
    You hold my heart so don't let go
    You are all I need to live
    My love to you I'll give

    My Sarah

    When you begin to smile you change my style
    My Sarah
    When I look in your eyes I see my prize
    My Sarah

    You are all I want to know
    You hold my heart so don't let go
    You are all I need to live
    My love to you I'll give

    You are all I want to know
    Oh my Sarah
    Don't let go oh no
    My Sarah

    You are all I want to know
    You hold my heart so don't let go
    You are all I need to live
    My love to you I'll always give

    You are all I want to know
    You hold my heart so don't let go
    You are all I want to know
    My Sarah

    Yes you changed my style with your baby smile
    Sarah
    Childlike charms keep me warm hold you in my arms
    Sarah

    Changed my world my baby girl
    Sarah
    All I want to know don't let go
    No,no,no,no,no
    Sarah

  • Frannei from Dumaguete City, PhilippinesI like the song, it reminds me of my special friend "sarah".
  • Rosaleen from Leeds , United KingdomI named my 1st daughter SARAH CATHLEEN she's now 12, I always sing SARAH to her, she likes the song but not me singing it, haha. Lizzy fan since I was young, so it was apt that I gave Sarah her name, my 2nd daughter is Maria, my middle name is Marie (Sweet Marie) and 3rd daughter Rosie, me l'm Rosaleen (Dark Rosaleen) or Rosalie is you wish!
    By the way, the debate above "Sarah" it is called "Sarah" Americans record companies must have made a misprint on your albums. Soz but it's definately "SARAH" older version is about Phil's Grandmother. R.I.P. PHIL,(Still in Love with You)
  • Roddie from Waterford, IrelandThe songs correct title is SARAH and was written for Philips eldest daughter. For some reason, Americans tend to refer to it as 'My Sarah' which is incorrect. There is ANOTHER Thin Lizzy song also titled SARAH which was written many years previously and was written for Philips grandmother. Philip also wrote a song for his other daughter, Cathleen.

  • Greg from Dublin, IrelandTo be fair adam if you look at the track listings on the Black Rose Album, this song is track five and it's simply called "Sarah". The other version is also called Sarah, but is often referred to as Sarah -Version 2. I bet Snowey White was your favourite lizzy guitarist too...
  • Adam from A Little Cute Town, SwedenCan't you please get your facts right? This song you mention here from Black Rose album is actually called "My Sarah" and yes it's about Phil's daughter. The song called just "Sarah" is from the album Shades of a Blue Orphanage (1972) and this song is about Phil's grandmother.
  • Sarah from Colac, Australiai love this song, i wish my dad had written it about me!
