lyrics

Good Conversation

There was a time when I was younger I was easily led
I use to look at certain people strange
I believed what they told me and it stuck inside my head
But a funny thing happened then one day

Yes a good conversation was had by me
And a man who shall remain innominate
And as he walked away I found that we were much the same
A good conversation’s what it takes

I couldn’t wait to tell my family and my friends about this man
Let’s just say that they were not impressed
So I offered them the challenge to explore their narrow minds
And get all their opinions off their chest

Yes a good conversation we had right then
I’m glad to say that it was not in vain
If a little common ground is the least that can be found
Then a good conversation’s what it takes

Oh what it takes

Now in this world there are some people who will never engage
Hatred has become their sole defence
Some are just too ignorant and some are not too bright
All there to be exploited by the press

If a good conversation is lost on them
Then the rest of us can step up to the plate
When curiosity sparks that’s the perfect place to start
And a good conversation’s what it takes


Oh what it takes

about

Paddy Nash Ireland

Gate Fever is the new Solo Album from Paddy Nash. Usually seen with his 7- strong-stomping-ensemble ‘The Happy Enchiladas’ this album sees Paddy revisit his Folk roots.

‘I wanted to write songs about how I view the world today. The things that make me angry, the stuff that makes me despair, the time and people that we lost, that I miss. I tried to find some hope along the way. I hope I did.’
