Big Country - Celtic Dream Lyrics




When I look into your eyes
See the years I spent in them
I’m amazed to find they still show clear
Clear out to the edge every chance I took with you
Shining in the darkest places of my fear

I love the warmth that moments were the summer
As you softly shimmer in seven veils of haze
I feel the rainfall of a lifetimes worth of autumns
Running on my shoulders like November days

Last night I took a walk into the fire
Of my Celtic dreams
Someday soon I’ll leave that innocence behind me
Until then I’m here

Sometimes you just can’t tell the way the flood is gonna flow
Sometimes you never know the way the coldest wind will blow
I used to answer all these things for everyone
Not because I knew the truth
But because I was having fun

Last night I took a walk into the fire
Of my Celtic dreams
Someday soon I’ll leave that innocence behind me
Until then I’m here

Last night I took a walk into the fire
Of my Celtic dreams
Someday soon I’ll leave that innocence behind me
Until then I’m here

Stay free and throw your cares into the future
Let them all come out
Be true and pass those dreams onto someone
Before you wear them out

By some strange god and a good right hand
You can chase the ghost from the promised land
If the promised land turns out as it should
We can flood the place with consumer goods

If we eat our greens and we say our prayers
We can trap the beast in his stony lair
We’ll tame the beast and we’ll save his soul
And fill our schools with the gold we stole

By some strange god and your good right hand
We can shake the ghost from the promised land
If the promised land turns out as it should
We can flood the place with consumer goods

If we eat our greens and we say our prayers
We can trap the beast in his stony lair
We’ll tame the beast and we’ll save his soul
And fill our schools with the gold we stole
