I WILL FOLLOW

I WILL FOLLOW If you walk away, walk away


I walk away, walk away
I was on the outside when you said I will follow.
You needed me I will follow.
I was looking at myself
I was blind, I could not see. Your eyes make a circle
I see you when I go in there
A boy tries hard to be a man Your eyes, your eyes
His mother takes him by the hand Your eyes, your eyes.
If he stops to think, he starts to cry
Oh why? If you walk away, walk away
I walk away, walk away
If you walk away, walk away I will follow.
I walk away, walk away If you walk away, walk away
I will follow. I walk away, walk away
If you walk away, walk away I will follow.
I walk away, walk away I will follow.
I will follow.
I will follow.

I was on the inside


When they pulled the four walls down
I was looking through the window
I was lost, I am found.

If you walk away, walk away


I walk away, walk away
I will follow.

TWILIGHT

I look into his eyes Twilight, darkened day


They’re closed but I see something. Twilight, lost my way
A teacher told me why Twilight, night and day
I laugh when old men cry. Twilight, can’t find my way.
Can’t find your way
My body grows and grows Can’t find my way
It frightens me, you know Can’t find your way.
The old man tried to walk me home
I thought he should have known. Twilight, darkened day
Twilight, lost my way
Twilight, lost my way Twilight, night and day
Twilight, can’t find my way. Twilight, can’t find my way.

In the shadow, boy meets man In the shadow, boy meets man
In the shadow, boy meets man In the shadow, boy meets man
In the shadow, boy meets man In the shadow, boy meets man
In the shadow, boy meets man. In the shadow, boy meets man.

I’m running in the rain


I’m caught in a late night play.
It’s all, it’s everything
I’m soaking through the skin.

AN CAT DUBH INTO THE HEART

Say goodnight Into the heart of a child


She waits for me to turn out the light I stay awhile
Really still I can go there.
She waits to break my will.
Into the heart of a child
Woah-oh I can smile
Yes, and I know the truth about you. I can go there.
She cat.
Into the heart, into the heart of a child
And in the daylight I can go back
A blackbird makes a violent sight I can stay awhile.
And when she is done I can look straight
She sleeps beside the one Into the heart.

Woah-oh-oh Into the heart.


Yes, and I know the truth about you
She cat.

Yes, and I know the truth about you


She cat.

OUT OF CONTROL STORIES FOR BOYS

Monday morning There’s a place I go


Eighteen years dawning That takes me far away.
I said how long. There’s a T.V. show
Say how long. And I can play.

It was one dull morning Sometimes when a hero takes me


I woke the world with bawling Sometimes I don’t let go
I was so sad Oh, oh, oh.
They were so glad.
There’s a picture book
I had the feeling it was out of control With colour photographs
I was of the opinion it was out of control. There’s a comic strip
That makes me laugh
Boys and girls to school
And girls they make children Sometimes when I am taken
Not like this one. Sometimes I don’t let go.

I had the feeling it was out of control Stories for boys


I was of the opinion it was out of control. Stories for boys
Stories for boys
I was of the feeling it was out of control Stories for boys
I had the opinion it was out of control. Stories for boys.

I fought fate There’s a place I go


There’s blood at the garden gate And it’s a part of me
Arcadia Ballroom, Cork, 1978
The man said childhood There’s a radio
It’s in his childhood And I will go

One day I’ll die Sometimes a hero takes me


The choice will not be mine Sometimes I don’t let go.
Will it be too late?
You can’t fight fate. Stories for boys
Stories for boys
I had the feeling it was out of control Stories for boys
I was of the opinion it was out of control. Stories for boys
Stories for boys.
Stories for boys.
Stories for boys.
Stories for boys.
Stories for boys.

THE OCEAN

A picture in grey
Dorian Gray
Just me by the sea.

And I felt like a star


I felt the world could go far
If they listened to what I said.
Just me, my ego by the sea.

It washes my feet
It washes my feet
Splashes the sole of my shoes.

Acklam Hall, London, 1980. Photo by Paul Slattery.

A DAY WITHOUT ME

Started a landslide in my ego


Looked from the outside to the world I left behind.
I'm dreaming, you're awake
If I wasn’t sleeping, what’s at stake?

A day without me.

Whatever the feelings, I keep feeling


What are the feelings you left behind?

A day without me.

Started a landslide in my ego


Looked from the outside to the world I left behind.
In the world I left behind
They wipe their eyes and then let go
In the world I left behind
They shed a tear and on they go.

ANOTHER TIME, ANOTHER PLACE THE ELECTRIC CO.

Bright morning lights Boy, stupid boy


Wipe the sleep Don't sit at the table
From another day's eye. Until you're able to.
Turn away from the wall
And there's nothing at all. Toy, broken toy
Being naked and afraid You can shout and shout, ‘til you're inside out
In the open space of my bed. But if you don't know.
Electric Co.
I'll be with you now If you don't know
I'll be with you now Electric Co.
I'll be with you now
We lie on a cloud, we lie. Red, running red
You play for real
Just as I am But the toy can feel
I awoke with a tear on my tongue Holding your head
I awoke with a feeling of never before You won't shout
In my sleep, I discovered the one You still beg
But she was gone with the morning sun. If you don't know
The Electric Co.
I'll be with you now
I'll be with you now If you don't know.
I'll be with you now Electric Co.
We lie on a cloud, we lie. If you don't know
Electric Co.
Another time, another place
We lie.
Another time, another place.
We lie.
Another time, another place
We lie.
Your time, your place.
