Randy Crawford – One Day I’ll Fly Away

Lyrics
I’ll make it alone
When love is gone
Still you made your mark
Here in my heart
One day I’ll fly away
Leave your love to yesterday
What more can your love do for me?
When will love be through with me?
I follow the night
Can’t stand the light
When will I begin
My life again?
One day I’ll fly away
Leave your love to yesterday
What more can your love do for me?
When will love be through with me?
Why live life from dream to dream?
And dread the day that dreaming ends?
One day I’ll fly away
Leave your love to yesterday
What more can your love do for me?
When will love be through with me?
Why live life from dream to dream?
And dread the day that dreaming ends?
One day I’ll fly away
Fly away
One day I’ll fly away
Fly away
Fly away

Dolores Keane – The Island

‘The Island’ by Paul Brady (1985)

County Tyrone native Paul Brady used his song ‘The Island’ to draw some comparisons between the Troubles and the civil war in Lebanon that began in 1975. A pacifistic song highlighting the tragedy of the cycles of violence that Ireland had been experiencing for centuries, it contrasts the peaceful image of a couple making love on an island with acts of terrorism and war.
