Album “Ten Feet High”

TenFeetHighCover

Per il suo debut album da solista la bella Aindréa Sinéad Ó Corra scrisse una canzone d’amore che si trasformò in canzone contro la guerra (e soprattutto contro il coinvolgimento britannico in Iraq e Afghanistan) dopo la lettura di “Birdsong”, racconto di vite travolte dal primo conflitto mondiale scritto nel 1993 dal giornalista britannico Sebastian Faulks.
You left me thinking what a bore
I'm always stuck inside
I've got a feeling there is more
And I've been left behind
A lot of pain a lot of noise
That these four walls hide
Happy faces go to war
And dance upon the mines

Come on come join come join come join us
You're very young
Come join us
You'll be a man
Come join come join us
You're big and strong
come join us

You planted me in foreign ground
A pen within a hand
At least I am not on my own
In Hell I have a friend
And our finest and ashamed
It isn't my crusade
Dirty faces in a war
Asleep in open graves

Come on come join come join come join us
You're very young
Come join us
You'll be a man
Come join come join us
You're big and strong
Come join us

Shame on You
Shame on you
Shame on you
To keep my love from me
Shame on you
Shame on you
Shame on you
To keep my love from me
Shame on you
Shame on you
Shame on you
To keep my love from me

Shame on you
(Close your eyes to seeing)
Shame on you
(Lock your heart to feeling)
Shame on you
(Changes his name to number)
(He's somebody's child)
Shame on you
Shame on you
To keep my love from me

Close your eyes to seeing
Lock your heart to feeling
Changed his name to number
He's somebody's child
