Story

Clonard is a small town in County Meath, Ireland, and is the site of a 6th century monastery started by St Finnian.  Of course I had no idea about all this when I wrote the song... Writing songs can get wierd.

Lyrics

Clonard

She called from the distance
Called out from a dream
Beyond a world of resistance
From the spaces between


We're going to Clonard
We're going to see
We're going to Clonard
Come you with me

I walked in her footsteps
Seeking her hand
Heard the river beside me
In this darkened land

We're going to Clonard...

Echoes in the distance
Weeping from the trees
Sighs like morning mist
Falling broken leaves
She called from the distance
Called out from a dream
Beyond a world of resistance
From the spaces between

We're going to Clonard
We're going to see
We're going to Clonard
Come you with me
Home to Clonard
Home to see
Home to Clonard
Come you all with me
