lyrics

We could've tie-dyed the sky in reply to a lie
But we're not gonna try anymore
We got cut up and scuffed and roughed up and left on the moors
Make up or brake up or shake up, pull stakes up?
Just wake up, just don't even try
All that you get in the end's a black Irish goodbye.

Black Irish goodbye
Black Irish goodbye
All that you get in the end's a black Irish goodbye

An Irish goodbye's when you sense that it's time
And you quietly slip out the back
A black Irish goodbye's just like that but you never come back
Because silence is sacred and silence is strong
and it's steeped in it's own kind of proof
If you're doubting the power of silence
Well here is the proof:

Black Irish goodbye
Black Irish goodbye
All that you get in the end are black Irish goodbyes

God woke up one morning alone in the garden
And called out two names to the sky
A lonely and cavernous echo was the only reply
Their names were Adam and Eve, I believe
And both of them started to cry
It was the first penance, the first black Irish goodbye

Black Irish goodbye
Black Irish goodbye
All that you get in the end's a black Irish goodbye
