lyrics

Last in Line

There’s a painting in the bathroom
From your art school days
Reminds you of the one who got away
There’s a stranger in the kitchen
Screaming out your name
Reminds you of how quickly things can change

Everyday it keeps on closing in
You’d start again if you knew where to begin

Happiness is a hard old place to find
Some people have been searching all their lives
That moment when you think that you've arrived
And you're last in line

There’s a date in your diary 1985
One decision changed the course your life
And here you are in the bedroom sorting through regrets
Which ones to keep which to forget

Everyday brings a little less belief
You’d start again if you could find the space to breathe

Happiness is a hard old place to find
Some people have been searching all their lives
That moment when you think that you've arrived
And you're last in line

You won't find it in a movie or at the bottom of a glass
And in those silly books that you've amassed
It’s not on no prescription or on pay per view
There is no big secret only you

When everyday feels like the one before
Only you know what you're waiting for

Happiness is a hard old place to find
Some people have been searching all their lives
That moment when you know that you've arrived
And you're next in line

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.’
