The Emperor’s New Clothes – Sinead O’connor

Lirik lagu: The Emperor’s New Clothes

It seems like years since you held the baby
While I wrecked the bedroom
You said it was dangerous after Sunday
And I knew you loved me
He thinks I just became famous
And that’s what messed me up
But he’s wrong
How could I possibly know what I want
When I was only twenty-one?
And there’s millions of people
To offer advice and say how I should be
But they’re twisted
And they will never be any influence on me
But you will always be
You will always be
If I treated you mean
I really didn’t mean to
But you know how it is
And how a pregnancy can change you
I see plenty of clothes that I like
But I won’t go anywhere nice for a while
All I want to do is just sit here
And write it all down and rest for a while
I can’t bear to be in another city
One where you are not
I would return to nothing without you
If I’m your girlfriend or not
Maybe I was mean
But I really don’t think so
You asked if I’m scared
And I said so
Everyone can see what’s going on
They laugh `cause they know they’re untouchable
Not because what I said was wrong
Whatever it may bring
I will live by my own policies
I will sleep with a clear conscience
I will sleep in peace
Maybe it sounds mean
But I really don’t think so
You asked for the truth and I told you
Through their own words
They will be exposed
They’ve got a severe case of
The emperor’s new clothes
The emperor’s new clothes
The emperor’s new clothes

Oro Se Do Bheatha ‘Bhaile – Sinead O’connor

Se do bheatha a bhean ba leanmhar!
B’e ar gcreach tu bheith i ngeibhinn,
Do dhuiche bhrea i seilbh meirleach
‘S tu diolta leis na Ghallaibh.

[Chorus:]
Oro, se do bheatha ‘bhaile!
Oro, se do bheatha ‘bhaile!
Oro, se do bheatha ‘bhaile!
Anois ar theacht an tsamhraidh.

Ta Grainne Mhaol ag teacht thar saile,
Oglaigh armtha lei mar gharda;
Gaeil iad fein ‘s ni Gaill na Spainnigh,
‘S cuirfid siad ruaig ar Ghallaibh.

[Chorus]

A bhui le Ri na bhfeart go bhfeiceam,
Muna mbeam beo ‘na dhiaidh ach seachtain,
Grainne Mhaol agus mile gaiscioch
Ag fogairt fain ar Ghallaibh.

[Chorus]

V.I.P. – Sinead O’connor

Lirik lagu: V.I.P.

[Preacher:]
Someone say, “Boldness”.

[Congregation:]
Boldness

[Preacher:]
The Bible says in Proverbs 28 verse 1 “The righteous shall be bold like a lion.” Bold like a lion. Bold like a lion. The righteous shall be bold like a lion.

What is a real VIP?
Do we have the balls to go to that party?
Or do we rather stay and dance with vanity?
Tell me now what’s a real VIP?

And who are we to give that name to us?
When we don’t know the lives of others
When we can barely raise a finger
To help our own sisters and brothers
Wasn’t it in history
The artists always spoke their people’s needs
Now we’re gorged upon what devils feed
In the shallow form of MTV
Telling the youth to worship futile dreams
And along for bling and for material things
I tell you what a real VIP is
A face that never was nor will be kissed
To whom exactly are we giving hope
When we stand behind the velvet rope
Or get our pictures taken with the pope
Like some sick April fool kind of joke

Who is the really really real real VIP
The one the true and the most conquering king
Who looks around at everything
And sees exactly what we’ve been
His is the face that never was nor will be kissed
Do we think we’ll be down on his guest list?
When we’re standing at the gate
After being fashionably late
There’ll be no make up and there’ll be no film crews
No Vuitton bags and no Manolo shoes
When he’s presiding over you
Asking you, “Did you love only you,
Or did you stand for something else
Besides the hankering for fame and fame itself?”
The one who always was and always is
Will show you what a real VIP is

READ  All Apologies - Sinead O'connor

The fatherless
The motherless
The ravaged child at home who cried to you
You will be asked to say what did you do
And what’s behind this velvet curtain?
Don’t know but I can say for certain
A face that never was nor will be kissed
Will show you what a real VIP is

[Whispering:]
How can you say we are wise and we possess the instruction of the Lord? Certainly for nothing your pains are labored for nothing your righteous are written. The wise will be put to shame. See? They reject the word of the Lord so their wisdom amounts to nothing. They dress the wounds of my poor people as though they are nothing saying, “Peace peace,” when there is no peace. Saying, “All is well,” when nothing is well.
.

[Whispering:]
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning it is now and ever shall be, world without end. Oh Yeah.

Peggy Gordon – Sinead O’connor

O Peggy Gordon, You are my darling
Come sit you down upon my knee
And tell to me the very reason
Why I am slighted so by thee

I am so deep in love that I can’t deny it
My heart lies smothered in my breast
But it’s not for you to let the whole world know it
A troubled mind can find no rest

I leaned myself on a cask of brandy
It was my fancy, I do declare
For when I’m drinking, I’m always thinking
Wishing Peggy Gordon was here

I wished I was in a lonesome valley
Where womankind cannot be found
And the pretty little birds do change their voices
And every moment a different sound

I wish I was away in Ingo
Far away across the briny sea
Sailing over deepest waters
Where love nor care never trouble me
