This is a new song: to listen to it, please click here: Running in the Dark

RUNNING IN THE DARK

You are an echo in the entrance hall
You are a song that I can’t quite recall
It once was playing
As we made our rounds

You are the laughter from another floor
You are the moon behind the sycamore
That is swaying
In the castle grounds

You had no fear of running in the dark
And when you lost your way it left no mark
I sometimes thought that you had gone too far
But I would like to wind up where you are

You’re consolation for the deepest loss
In a world that’s carrying a cross
Still a broken
Heart can be raised up

You are a kindness that has been repaid
You are a celebrating cavalcade
When a local
Team has won the cup

When the rain has fallen
We’ll watch the flood
From our universe of flesh and blood
When the cards are dealt we’ll get on with the game
But everything has changed
And nothing … nothing … nothing remains the same

You had no fear of running in the dark
And when you lost your way it left no mark
I sometimes thought that you had gone too far
But I would like to wind up where you are

    Brendano I truly believe you have a gift for words, especially song-lines. This is very memorable and one I shall learn. As usual I shall delay my listening to the tune, only to savour the words again.

    Beautiful, Brendan. I needed something like this on the dark wet winter night down our way. IkeJ

    Heartbreakingly poetic. Sean would have loved it.

  4. Thanks very much, David, Ike and Liam.

    Deeper and more poignant than some of your compositions and very moving.
