Glen Hansard - Good Life Of Song Lyrics




Well, I call this room to order
Gather round now and hear my song
If you're drunk or at its border
Listen well, this won't take long
There's no doubting fortune's favour
When it tells you you're the one
But may the real fruits of your labour
Be sown by you alone

Oh, good life of singing
Good life of song
Won't you grant us our full measure
When our day is done
Oh, good wine and winning
Good nights so long
Won't you ease us through our toiling
The road is very long

After long weeks in the corner
Where the wine won't make you drunk
But you held your place with honour
Among the bards and the troubadours
This is no roaming lamentation
No ode to those who've gone
But a joyful incantation
To the road we've come upon

Oh, good life of singing
Good life of song
Won't you ease us through our toiling
The road is very long
Oh, good wine and winning
Good nights so long
Won't you grant us our full measure
For now we must go on

Good life of singing
Good life of song

Go tell it on the mountain
Let them know we passed this way
Let them see we came as equals
Let them know we weren't afraid
And they'll feel your love of music
In every note you play
Well, it leaves you if you don't use it
Don't let it slip away

Oh, good life of singing
Good life of song
How you granted us our measure
When our work was done
Oh, good days of drinking
Good nights so long
How you eased us through our toiling
For now we must go on

Good life of singing
Good life of song
Good life of singing
Good life so long

Glen Hansard Good Life Of Song Comments

    Just to add I listened the other day to Glens passed Lps, and the connection with the energy, passion, the lyrics, the emotion, the feelings, his music just makes me stop, and I close my eyes and it’s like fuck he is singing about my life past and present, great song writers do that, they give that symbiosis effect. It becomes more than music it’s just deeper than that.
    So looking forward to the new LP arrived today,

    Una delle migliori dell'album, a mio giudizio!! E credo anche più replicabili dal vivo. Lancio il messaggio nella bottiglia:"Glen, suonala il prossimo autunno in Italia. Lo spero!!".

    Long live the bare-bellies.
