You stepped out on that Clare ground
Didn’t even mind the rain
Oh I know you were a bright particular one
Clear and straight - we’ll not forget your name
Turning your own way
You did not seek to be the same

You stepped out on the stony ground
Didn’t even hear the rain
I know those cliffs up there at Kilkee
Their steep cut slopes, they’re something else
Shades of gray and green, you can lose yourself

You stepped out on the holy ground
Didn’t even feel the rain
Time it goes by, but we’ll not forget your name
You were facing the North Atlantic shore
Up here on the heads, you’ll find that we still are


from Here by the Fire, released February 10, 2011
