I thought it was you and me against the world How wrong I was It’s you and her and her and you now. I don’t claim to be original in any way We’re all the same, go say the same things now I read your mails It came as some relief to know you could feel good again But still I knew we’ve been losing you and me for years, I was looking for you Looking for you Looking for you Looking for you And I know that you’re not one for looking back and all of that But take my word, there’ll come a time you will And you’ll remember then, the cogs in wheels Where they come from and what went wrong And where your heart belongs I saw your face It hit me like a blow to know you could feel good again Still I knew we’ve been losing you and me for years I was looking for you I was looking for you Looking for you Looking for you Looking for you And you won’t find that thing inside you gave to me You won’t find that thing inside you gave to me I was looking for you Looking for you Looking for you Looking for you

Still Alive 04:57
Will you be my Jekyll or my Hyde Nothing breaths under cyanide Your blue bird has fallen from the sky All things bloom, everything will die We will over come We will overcome Tried to let sleeping dogs lie Something changed, the river ran dry You moved on so soon I new I was right to cut this bloom We will over come We will overcome All my fears turned out to be right 13 years, a 7th of my life All those words ‘forever hold you tight’ Your French love is running through the night We will overcome Tried to be all you wanted Inside me resisted your orders Your father’s son My mother’s daughter I can’t live where there’s no laughter Hold on Hold on tight We’re still alive

All of the gardens I ever tended No matter how splendid, I moved on I’ll never know the earth again under my feet no, nor plant a seed nor watch it grow I fell in to a well to the bottom of the sea I gave in to the well Built a tower of rivers All of the ceilings that I ever painted have somehow been tainted in my mind And all of the curtains I made out of velvet They stand in the pulpit of time Where was my God when he put out his cigarette on my arm when I was small I’ll never take a train again or pick up a paper Or see a skyscraper Or go to the mall I fell in to a well to the bottom of the sea I gave in to the well Built a tower of rivers I die, I die but my body keeps living I die, I die but my body keeps giving I’ll never leave my room again unless you drag me

White Shoes 04:03
I was a long time thinking about The things I love about you What is forever Forever is long That was a long time That was a long time I remember the view we first met You came as the sun set White shoes Eyes of blue Looking through me That was a long time That was a long time

Where is the meaning Switching the channel Your facial expression Tower is falling down Down I am switching on Revival of Heart Cuckoo’s got a hold Go Build another nest Seasons will come and go Revival of the heart can be so slow All will come clean All will grow old Legacy is what we leave behind Trees will lose their leaves Love is blind Love Where is the money Is all I hear you say You were the honey I was the bread while you were making hay All night and day All work no play Cuckoo’s got a hold Go Build another nest Seasons will come and go Revival of the heart can be so slow All will come clean All will grow old Legacy is what we leave behind You can eat the fruit, I’ll chew the rind Love is blind Love

Working on forgiving you Not to take it personally You found someone who’s skinnier than me Looks more like Charlotte Gainsbourg Who understands rigidity Bows down to the patriarchy Homages to men and so much closer to your dream Mmm Sweet Confectionary (you had me in chains) Mmm Sweet Confectionary Ours is such a tragedy Started out as love supreme We were the cats who got the cream We were the ones who killed the dream Change the picture on your locket Chase the devil in your pocket Hanging man of Jodorowsky Chocolate hearts your sweet confectionary (you had me in chains) Mmm Sweet Confectionary (you had me in chains) Mmm Sweet Confectionary

Go 03:37
I knew what love was before I met you You put me under, now I’ve come to Ooh there’s no need to lie Ooh, I wished you would die I’m dancing in my head Dancing in my head Dancing in my head Save it for the hand Save it for the hand See how I’m oh oh oh oh ver you We built a love on pure fantasy Something inside me fell at the wheel Ooh there’s no need to lie Ooh, I wished you would die Save it for the hand See how oh oh oh oh ver you Dancing in my head Dancing in my head

Joan 03:53
Your mouth is moving I can see but darling I can’t hear I’m under water You are standing by I see your fear Did you change the world Did you make it good Did you mean it all Did you live your word It’s not what you have it’s what you do with it It’s not what you have it’s what you do with it It’s not what you have it’s what you do with it It’s not what you have Golden hearts and minds and words and love don’t change a thing It’s what you do with what you feel inside that makes you sing It’s not what you have it’s what you do with it It’s not what you have it’s what you do with it It’s not what you have it’s what you do with it It’s not what you have And I can let it go I can let it go Golden hearts and minds and words and love don’t change a thing It’s what you do with what you feel inside that makes you sing M.A.K.E. M.A.K.E. D.O Switching on Switching off Did you change the world Did you make it good Did you mean it all Did you live your word M.A.K.E. M.A.K.E. D.O Switching on Switching off Switching on M.A.K.E. M.A.K.E. D.O I.T

One of you 03:36
All the suffers of the body See all I am All the world is burning And we better start again or it’s over To the top of the hill run Run Run I’m one of you I’m one of you I’m one of you I make my own moves Oh and who started it All the fires I see Can we buy Obviously the sense of unequal services me Service me me me me me me me Run Run (We’re all sick)And the city rubbish We’re all born equal Is it true Is it true Giant otter Amur leopard The lines are crossing now The stakes are getting high Can somebody sell me the future The Bengal flourican The tides are rising now The hopes are rising too Sumatran tiger Polar bear Koala Sumatran Rhino clownfish The Hawksbill turtles the nightingale I’m one of you I’m one of you I’m one of you I make my own moves

When you’re losing all your power Burning ashes in your heart Hold your head up Hold your hand out Let me pull you from the dark I was wondering is anyone out there tonight was wondering if anything should come to light Stepping away from the explosion Somewhere fallen underneath All things everybody’s feeling Caught between the lines of light Everything was such a fight All the birds have taken flight Am I not deserving Am I not deserving Deafening the silence Consummated sorrow LLLLlove boat was sold at sea Holding a broken heart I know it will heal Emulate this love but this one was real I was wondering is anyone out there tonight was wondering if anything should come to light Stepping away from the explosion Somewhere fallen underneath All things everybody’s feeling Caught between the lines of light Everything was such a flight All the birds have taken flight I am receiving I am receiving

about

This album is extremely personal. It is almost like a love letter to my own heart.
It is not overly dramatic to say that it has transformed my life.

It was born from the power of the people and gave me new life and has brought peace to my heart and fire to my life.

I hope it does the same for you. I hope it helps you transform.
I hope you are Zapped.
ZAP!

If you want to listen as an album experience,
Side A on the vinyl consists of the first 5 tracks, the broken heart, the sorrow, the nostalgia, the getting through it.
Side B are the tracks 5-10.
From bitchy to cheeky to angry to grace to joy, the slow healing.

I dedicate ZAP! to Dan Hegarty who has been playing my music on a regular basis on Irish National radio since 1999 and to you the funders who make it possible for me to create.
