lyrics

WILDER YEARS

In the wilder years
Boisterous and blue eyed
Now you’re seeing things
That will change your sight
Blame the rolling hills
Go ahead blame the sky
While you still can then the pain subsides

In the raging storm
Well you held your own
You could not afford
A minor slip or fall
When the rigging goes
And with rocks collide
You will throw yourself over to God’s side

Filled with honour you understand
Love’s a notion of no demand
Filled with honour you understand
Love’s a notion of no demand

In the wilder years
We knew how to take
What the hand it feeds
You don’t turn away
Blame the riverbank
That burst its sides
Until you know you’re wrong
Well you can’t be right

Filled with honour you understand
Love’s a notion of no demand
Filled with honour you understand
Love’s a notion of no demand

M E MCCARTHY – 21/01/2011
