It Will Pass…

The Race

Vocals: Cillian McHugh
Guitars: Cillian McHugh

What if you, if you were in my shoes?
Would they fit? And would they keep you warm?
What if you, if you were in my shoes?
What have I missed?

Time…
Time…
Time…
Goes on, moves fast

Stealing words of green tinted blue
Shadows of what we thought we knew
No more…

… time
… time
… time
is caught up, is made up

Another Goodbye

Backing Vocals: Donal McHugh, Cillian McHugh

All good things come to an end
All good things come to an end

You don’t want them to
You don’t want them to

And all you’ve lived and all you own,
and all you’ve learned an all you’ve known
And all you’ve worked and all you’ve done
And everything you’ve become

And you don’t even know
And you don’t even know
And you don’t even know
And you don’t even know

And those you’ve loved and those you’ve known
And those you’ve seen and those you’ve shown
The ones who knew and understood
The ones you thought would stay for good

And you have to say goodbye
And you have to say goodbye
And you have to say goodbye
And you have to say goodbye

There Are No Words

Vocals: Cillian McHugh
Guitar: Cillian McHugh

There are no words, there are no words, there’s just hanging on
And holding out, and holding on, until it’s gone
Your broken heart, your broken heart, you thought had healed

You check the screen, you check the screen for any sign
For her reply, for her reply, but you know inside
The empty screen and what that means, it’s all you feel

You came too close, you got too close, like you did before
And every time, and every time, no matter what you try
Will come again, will come again…

Counting the Days

Vocals: Cillian McHugh
Guitar: Cillian McHugh

Walking home across the city from the train to the plane
You’re on your own, there’s no pity there’s no pain in vain
When you said good-bye on the platform this time
Like you said good-bye the first time

You know this place by day but it’s night this time
Cold breeze on your face, night air and the city lights shine
Across the water reflect the sights
Across the water you’ll trek tonight

Growing apart, time and distance will take their toll
But in your heart you know it’s wort it to make you whole
The signs are there but hope remains
‘Cause love is to share, it’s worth the strain

Back on land back to normal doubt left behind
You’re almost home, just the drive and in your mind
You count the days till the next time
Like you count the days each time

If I Care

Vocals: Cillian McHugh
Guitars: Cillian McHugh

What if the best advice was wrong?
Advice you followed for too long.
And you turn to the bottle or the rolling good times,
Did you find it there? Do you even care?

I remember the secret joy,
I remember your voice……
……..your eyes…..

I don’t know if i care for you,
And I don’t know if you want me to.
I don’t know………….
….You…..

I don’t care if you miss me too
Coz I don’t care (how I felt for you)
Coz if I care…….
I’d care

It Will Pass

Vocals: Cillian McHugh
Guitar: Cillian McHugh

Too many times,
But it will pass and come again,
As history plays out, the cycle comes round again.
And it’s back to the drawing board but you know its the same song over again
same song over again…..same song over again

You can only be a happy fool for so long,
Till you have to face the truth and accept that you’ve got it wrong.
And poets of the past speak truths that will always last
And the band sings your heart, drawing distractions

Too many times,
But it will pass and come again.

And you know it’s done, and you know it’s too late to talk
‘cause nothing you can say, and nothing you can do will change what’s come
And you always knew this day could come,
But your heart still believed

Believed you could overcome, believed she was the one,
You tried to make it work, you thought you could make it work,
And even when the cracks began to show,
You never gave up hope

The four leaf charm, to hang on her arm,
The phone call in the sun, remembering as one, one last time
Back to how it used to be
and what we had.

Two months on, the time you bought is gone,
Today’s flight home, the last flight home

Look up to see, to see how high
can we ever reach the sky
what’ll i be before i die
and should i wonder why

start with one, another makes two
are the numbers really true
it can’t be done, if we only knew
to count them all: impossible to do

time goes on and on, every day we’re here
adds up to pass the year
when it’s done and gone you can’t go back
to change the past it doesn’t work like that

the universe expands that’s what they say
getting bigger every day
the big bang blew it all away
far and wide past the milky way

What if I told you that everyone was wrong?
wrong in what they believe…
And what if I told you that everyone was right
right in what they believe … but wrong…?…

Would you call me mad if I told you right was wrong and wrong was right?

Good and Evil invented by men trying to explain what we cannot comprehend.
Don’t search for the answer ‘cause it’s right there to be found… and not there… and right there.

Would you call me mad if I told you there’s no point? and that’s the point… so what’s the point?

Follow your heart and believe in what you believe… let it’s music reach you, just listen.
And live your life ‘cause it’s all that you can know… take good with bad and let the balance flow.

Would you call me mad if I told you that I knew…?…and didn’t know…because I know…?..

Verse 1
Reverse the answer, It’s 24
But what is the question? No one cares anymore
God is Forgotten, Who needs heaven’s door
We’ve got money

Chorus
And the more we learn, Learn about the earth
The more we seem to forget
Technologies and good careers, we try to beat our peer
And 24 is all the time we get

Verse 2
The edge of the rainbow goes up to 24
On the other side we’re getting fried, more than ever before
Chainsaws and trucks expose the forest floor
And we let it happen

Verse 1
paint a picture, write a song… to illustrate this life
the page is yours, your work your life… you do your best to get it right

but the colours start to run … words become undone

Chorus 1
cross it out
tear it up
erase it till there leaves no trace
and start again, start again

Verse 2
ealainteoir ar leathnach bán … dathanna an saol
amhran beo le mothúchán … focail don saol

ach theip an ghrá bhris an peann ní leor a bhí ann

Chorus 2
scrois é
chuir sa tine é
bris é go dtí píosaí beag
is tosaigh arís, tosaigh arís

Verse 3
start again on a brand new page … we all learn with age
peann nua, dathanna nua … ach an amhrán chéanna

nuair a theip an ghrá bhris an peann ní leor a bhí ann

Chorus 3
scrois é
chuir sa tine é
bris é go dtí píosaí beag
is tosaigh arís, tosaigh arís

If i’ve got somethin’ to say i say it
If i’ve got something to do i do it
And i feel so good

Doesn’t even matter if the rains fall
And i Don’t care if there’s no sun at all
Coz i feel good

Some things that happen you cannot change
What reason why?
But if i’m ever feelin down
I know

Nothing can be thrown at me i cannot catch
all obstacles can be overcome
and even if i feel alone
i know

i’ve got my friends
there’ll always be someone to call on
someone to cheer me up

when i’m happy i’m with friends
and when i’m with friends i’m happyv and i believe
