Song Lyrics

And if it’s not too much
Think about everyone here
People trying to wrestle the world from fools
Leaving stuff behind, kissing the future
Let go of the past
This…first in our country, this song is for you
Past and present

If you twist and turn away
If you tear yourself in two again
If I could, you know I would
If I could, I would let it go (this horror)
Surrender, dislocate

If I could throw this lifeless
Lifeline to the wind
Leave this heart of clay
Just to see you break, break away
Into the night
Out through the Irish rain
Into the half-light and the light
And then back again to the light
Sing it now

Wo-wo…

To let it go
So not fade away
To let it go
So not fade away
I’m wide awake
Wide awake
Wide awake
I’m not sleeping

If you should ask
Well maybe they’d tell me
What I should say
True colours fly in blue and black
Bruised silken sky and like a burning flag
Colours crash, collide in bloodshot eyes

If I could, you know I would
If I could I would let it go
This separation
This concept of a nation
I want instegration
Not condemnation

Let it go, oh-ho
So not fade away
To let it go
So not fade, fade, fade away
Fade away
Fade away
Not fade away

C’mon
Be their rock
Be their rock

Wide awake
Wide awake
Wide awake
I’m not sleeping
I’m not sleeping
(Not yet, not yet)

We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Before the …
Sailed…into the mystic
