Ode To My Family :

Understand the things I say

Don't turn away from me

'Cause I've spent half my life out there

You wouldn't disagree

Do you see me? Do you see?

Do you like me?

Do you like me standing there?

Do you notice? Do you know?

Do you see me? Do you see me?

Does anyone care?

Unhappiness where's when I was young

And we didn't give a damn

'Cause we were raised

To see life as fun and take it if we can

My mother, my mother she hold me

Did she hold me ,when I was out there

My father, my father, he liked me

Oh he liked me,does anyone care?

Understand what I've become

It wasn't my design

And people everywhere think

Something better than I am

But I miss you, I miss

'Cause I liked it. I liked it

When I was out there

Do you know this ? D'you know

You did not find me, you did not find

Does anyone care?

Unhappiness was when I was young,

And we didn't give a damn

'Cause we were raised

To see life as fun, and take it if we can

To see life as fun and take it if we can

My mother, my mother she hold me

Did she hold me ,when I was out there

My father, my father, he liked me

Oh he liked me,does anyone care?

Does anyone care?

 


  

I Can't Be With You :

Lying in my bed again

And i cry cos' you're not here

Crying in my head again

And I know that it's not clear

Put your hands, Put your hands

Inside my face

and see that's it's just you

But it's bad and it's mad

And it's making me sad

Because I can't be with you

Baby I Can't Be With You

Thinking back on how things were

And how we loved so well

I wanted to be the mother of your child

and now it's just farewell

Put your hands in my hands

And come with me,

We'll find another end

And my head , and my head

On anyone's shoulder

Cause I can't be with you

Baby I can't be with you

Cause you're not here, you're not here

Baby I can't be with you

Cause you're not here, you're not here

And baby I'm still in love with you

 


 

Twenty One : (Twenty One was written on the September 6th 1992)

I don't think it's going

To happen anymore

You took my thoughts from me

Now i want nothing more

And did you think you

Could just take it all away

I dont think it s happening

This is what I say

Leave me alone

Cause i found it all

Twenty one

So I don't think it's going

To happen anymore

I don't think it's going

To happen anymore

Twenty One

Today

Twenty One

 


 

Zombie : (Zombie was written on the Cranberries - English Tour 1993.)

Man 's inhumanity to man

and worse still, to child

Another head hangs lowly

Child is slowly taken

And the violence caused such silence

Who are we mistaken

But You see it's not me,

It s not my family

In your head,in your

Head they are fighting

With their tanks, and their bombs

And their bombs, and their guns

In your head,

In your head they are cryin'

In your head Zombie

What's in your head,

in your head Zombie

Another mother's breakin'

Heart is taking over

When the violence causes silence

We must be mistaken

It's the same old theme since 1916

In your head,

In your head they're still fightin'

With their tanks

In your head they are dying

In your head, in your head Zombie

What's in your head, in your head

Zombie

 


Empty :

Something has left my life

And I don't know where it went to

Somebody caused me stripe

And it's not what I was seeking

Didn't you see me, didn't you hear me

Didn't you see me standing there

Why did you turn out the lights

Did you know that I was sleeping

Say a prayer for me

Help to feel the strength I did

My identity has it been taken

Is my heart breaking on me

All my plans fell through my hands

They fell through my hands on me

All my dreams it suddenly seems

Empty

 


 

Everything I Said :

It makes me lonely

It makes me very lonely

When I see you there, waitin'on

It makes me tired,

It makes me very tired

And inside of me, lingers on

But you have your heart

Don t believe it, and you will find it

Waitin'on

Everything I said, oh, well I meant it

And inside my head, holdin'on

'Cos if I died tonight

Would you hold my hand, no

Would you understand

And if I lived in spite

Would you still be there, no

Would you disappear

Surely must be you

But I don t make you lonely

I'll get over you

But I don 't make you lonely

 


 

The Icicle Melts :

When, When will the icicle melt,

And when,

When will the picture show end

I should not have read the papers today

'Cause a child, child,

child he was taken away

There's a place for the baby that died

And there's a time...

...for the mother who cried

And she will hold him in her arms...

... sometimes

'Cause nine months is too long

How could you hurt a child

Now does this make you satisfied

I don't know what's

happening to people today

When a child, he was taken away

There's a place for the baby that died

There's a time for the mother that cried

And she will hold him in

her arms sometimes

'Cause nine months is too long

There's a place for the baby that died

And there's a time...

...for the mother that cried

And you will hold him in your arms...

... sometimes

'Cause nine months is too long

 


 

Disappointment : (Written on making a clear decision, no more struggle inside...)

Disappointment you shouldn't have done

You couldn't have done

You wouldn't have done

the things you did there

And we could 've been happy

What a piteous thing, a hideous thing

was tainted by the rest

But it won't get any harder

And I hope you'll find your way again

But it won't get any higher

But it all boils down...

...to what you did there

In the night we fight, I feel you're right

It was exactly there, I decided

and drew you out

In the night we fight, I feel you're right

It was exactly there, I decided

But it won't get any harder

And I hope you'll find your way again

But it won't get any higher

But it all boils down...

...to what you did there

Disapointment

 


 

Ridiculous Thoughts :

Twister does anyone see through you

You re a twister an animal

But you're happy now

I didn't go along with you

So happy now

But you re going to have to hold on,

Hold on

Or we're going to have to move on,

Move on

I feel alright

And I cried so hard

The ridiculous thoughts

I feel alright

Twister.

I shouldn't have trusted you

Twister

It's not going to happen no

You re not going to make fun of me

Happen no

But you re going to have to hold on

You re going to have to hold on,

Hold on

Or we're going to have to move on,

Move on

I feel alright

And I cried so hard

The ridiculous thoughts

I feel alright

I should have lied

And I cried so hard

The ridiculous thoughts

I should ha' lied

But you re gonna have to hold on

Hold on

but you're gonna have to hold on to me

 


 

Dreaming My Dreams :

(Dreaming my dreams was written on december 25th 1993, Where i found happiness. Dedicated to my husband, lover, best friend, support. What more can be said ?)

All the things you said to me today

Changed my perspective in every way

These things count to mean

so much to me

Into my faith you

And your baby

It s out there

If you want me

I'll be there

It's out there

I'll be dreaming my dreams

With you

And there's no other places

That I'd lay down my face

I'll be dreaming my dreams with you

It's out there

If you want me,I'll be here

I'll be dreaming my dreams with you

And there's no other places that I'd

lay down my face

I'll be dreaming my dreams with you

 


 

Yeat's Grave :

Silenced by death in the grave

W B Yeats couldn't save

Why did you stand there

'Where you sickened in time

But I know by now

Why did you sit here?

In the GRAVE

W.B. Yeats "Second"

Why should I blame her

That she filled my days

With misery or that she would of late

Have taught to ignorant men violent ways

Or hurled the little street...

...upon the great

Had they but courage

Equals to desire

Sad that Maud Gonne Couldn't stay

But she had Mac Bride anyway

And you sit here with me

On the isle Inisfree

And you writing down everything

But i know by now

Why did you sit here

In the grave...

Why should I blame her

Had they but courage equals to desire

This song has been written with inspiration from theses William Butler Yeats poems

------------------------

William Butler Yeats

(1865 - 1939)

------------------------

THE LAKE ISLE OF INNISFREE

 

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,

And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:

Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,

And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

 

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,

Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;

There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,

And evening full of the linnet's wings.

 

I will arise and go now, for always night and day

I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;

While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,

I hear it in the deep heart's core.

 

NO SECOND TROY

 

Why should I blame her that she filled my days

With misery, or that she would of late

Have taught to ignorant men most violent ways,

Or hurled the little streets upon the great,

Had they but courage equal to desire?

What could have made her peaceful with a mind

That nobleness made simple as a fire,

With beauty like a tightened bow, a kind

That is not natural in an age like this.

Being high and solitary and most stern?

Why, what could she have done being what she is?

Was there another Troy for her to burn?

 

 


Daffodil Lament :

Holding on that's what I do

Since I met you

And it won't be long, would you notice

If I left you

And it's fine for some

Cause you're not he one,

All night long, I laid on my pillow

Theses things are wrong

I can't sleep here

So lonely, so lonely

I have decided to leave you forever

I have decided to start things from here

Thunder and lightning won't change

What I'm feeling

And the daffodils look lovely today

Oh in your eyes I can see the disguise

Oh in your eyes I can see the dismay

Has anyone seen lightning

Has anyone looked lovely

And the daffodils looked lovely today

Looked lovely

 


 

No Need To Argue :

There 's no need to argue anymore

I gave all i could

But it left me so sore

And the thing that makes me mad

is the one thing that I had

I knew, I knew I'd loose you

You 'll always be special to me

And I remember all the

Things we once shared

Watching TV movies on

the living room armchair

But they say it will work out fine

Was it all a waste of time

Cause I knew, I knew I'd loose you

You 'll always be special to me

Will I forget in time

You said I was on your mind

There 's no need to argue

No need to argue anymore

There 's no need to argue anymore

Special
