lyrics

A rosary
And I’m hit like a train by a memory
My mother praying in the cemetery
For the boy in the old mans clothes

A photograph
People mourning in the aftermath
Scribbled on the back the epitaph
For the boy in the old mans clothes

The bluest sky
Turned to darkness then opened wide
Even god in heaven cried
For the boy in the old mans clothes

Wedding bells
A cause for celebration despite herself
And I threw my pennies in the holy well
For the boy in the old mans clothes

The memory disappears
And I think of the silence in her older years
Secrets stored away like souvenirs
For the boy in the old mans clothes

In my darkest days
She comes to visit but she never stays
Sometimes this life I would gladly trade
With the boy in the old mans clothes

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.’
