Damien Rice Lyrics
Damien Rice was born on the outskirts of Dublin in the
early 70's and grew up in Celbridge Co. Kildare. He spent
much of his childhood down by the River Liffey
fishing...hours of catching little left plenty of time for
In March 1999 he moved to Tuscany, then travelled around
Europe, busking the streets. He arrived back to Dublin a
year later, with a clear head, loaded with idea's, he
approached his music with a new found freshness and decided
to put some songs down. Borrowing money from those that
would lend it, More...

Review about Damien Rice songs
saying I love you is saying goodbye. | Reviewer: mkc------ About the song Cannonball performed by Damien Rice
Damien has the way to say just what goes on every day.
I told her I loved and never heard from her again. That
happened more than once but what is so sad is, I was told
I was loved and never called her again.
How easy is it to
recycle broken hearts. In a song, Not easy.
powerful honesty | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Accidental Babies performed by Damien Rice
As with everyone. This song describes better my situation than I ever could. I guess I am the first to go all out with this song though.
My situation: I am married and have been for 4 years now. My wife is an amazing woman. I love her... but not as much as I should or the way I should. 2 years ago I got a new job and met a woman there... from the beginning we have had just this 'thing' between us. This synchronicity that cant be judged or measured. She is also married. Because of this, we had never acted on our unspoken feelings. Until recently.
We both got married young and for the wrong reasons. But the reasons we should have had with our partners, we have found in each other. I am in the process of leaving my wife, but she wont let me go. And my affair, the woman I truly love wants to leave her husband but is terrified of what it will do to him.
this song is perfect, because it doesnt just describe the feelings but the situation. Having to have to hide your true happiness. While at work having to pretend there is nothing between us. The only time is behind closed doors that we dont have to act. Its so hard not to ignore what people might think when I look at her.
Sorry to speel... but it just feels so good to finally let it out.
damien rice. You are amazing and a true artist.
review the song minus your love for the songwriter | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Rootless Tree performed by Damien Rice
Lets assume these lyrics weren't written by a great singer and songwriter whose music we love but just a somebody. Take that emotional connection out and what do you have? You have someone who lacks character and emotional intelligence. He lacks the character to acknowledge his predicament involves his own doing. He is emotionally unintelligent to accept that and so appoints himself the victim.. All this torture and suffering, all the depth of despair he's in... it's all because of somebody else...the result of a perpetrator victimizing an innocent man. Please. Well unless we hear from the other side of the story, or hear what the perpetrators in this mans life have had to live with, then perhaps some simple advise will bring him out of his despair. Grow up!
Emotions & respect | Reviewer: Da ...------ About the song Accidental Babies performed by Damien Rice
Eight years ago I met the man I would have loved and that I will love till I live. There is something unique between us, something that cannot be explained. We felt each other's feelings, sadness, happiness and anything else you can think of that a person can feel, without even speaking. When his eyes met mine I felt o much inside of me that I often cried because it was too much.
When I went to bed with him our bodies were like melted into each other and I used to cry cause of the strength of these emotions.
When we spoke we were able to finish each other’s sentences and it was also like this when we wrote to each other. We were seriously together for a little while but then in an everyday life things just didn't work out between us. Too similar to live under the same roof. Two strong characters which didn't leave space for the other. So we moved on to different lives and different people and 6 years ago I met a truly honest good and loyal person who's loved me ever since we met. In my own way I love him too cause of how much I admire him and his amazing personality. I feel good when I'm with him as I’ve always felt but in time I needed what no one in the world has ever had the change to live and that's what you read above. I needed all those emotions therefore I betrayed the one who I admired for his honesty and respect. This went on and off for years. Twice I tried leaving the respectful man for the "emotional" one but this always went wrong.
I've now decided to behave like a woman and gave up my emotions for a safe, respectful and loyal life. I will live till I die with this massive pain because I gave up those emotions as a sign of forgiveness of all that I've done without him knowing.
But I miss them and I miss who gave to me.
This song describes exactly what the "emotional" man would say to me if he now knew that I've decided to give my whole life to the other one.
His emotions were mine and mine were his.
Fifty shades of Grey?? | Reviewer: Kpm------ About the song Volcano performed by Damien Rice
This song is perfect for Fifty shades of Grey... somehow, it explains what happens between Ana and Christian, I don't know, just reading what you said, it just pop in my head... Love the song, it is perfect...
who knows | Reviewer: not important------ About the song Eskimo performed by Damien Rice
to me it's about looking to a colder self, to not care. The "brightness fills empty space." there is a false happiness in some and for me it fills that void. my "eskimo," friends are the beautiful people, who are somewhat more "hardened," to the world.
Intense, Deep, Profound Love | Reviewer: Paulina Asturias------ About the song Volcano performed by Damien Rice
He is the volcano that might get hurt if she gets to close, wich is why they say how the strength of the heat will melt her. He states he is not real 'cus he does not want her to go through falling in love with someone who gets easily affected by his sorroundings. They know every single corner of each others passionate side but he still desires for her not to need him. I can absolutely relate to he song 'cus I deeply love and whenever you let yourself fall into the arms of true sensations your pears might not understand it and your beloved one might not be able to handle your need to devour life.
Found it!! | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Cannonball performed by Damien Rice
I had always loved this song but never really saw it in its true light until my guitar teacher taught me the chords for the song so I could play it. I started off not liking the chords and not understanding the strumming pattern. So I did it my own way and made it work. I tried to remember some of the lyrics but just couldn't so I looked on line and found this. One play through with the lyrics and I was in love with this song. I felt every emotion and was almost brought to tears. It is a truly great song and will always be.
Utterly Appropriate | Reviewer: Wrey------ About the song Silent Night performed by Damien Rice
Someone mentioned being offended at the "inappropriate" use of this melody given the story that is being told with the words. Clearly the commentator has missed the point of the artist's use. It is the very incongruity of the melody and the words that makes the song so haunting and disturbing. The song speaks of a love affair gone terribly wrong, while the music is about something beautiful. The artist has juxtaposed what should be with what sadly is. It's beautiful because it's wrong. It's evokative because it's jarring. It's real because it works.
People these days have such giant and delicate comfort bubbles. Nothing is sayable, nothing is touchable, everyone and everything at arms length. Happy "appropriate" smiles on every face. Artifice made life.
Meant to be together | Reviewer: Anonymous------ About the song Accidental Babies performed by Damien Rice
I stumbled accidentally upon this song. I played it to my lover and he said "How did he know about us" I have a soul mate and we cannot be together because of his situation. I miss his smell ... and he doesn't feel alive without me. I have to believe with all of my heart that the universe will look after us and that we will eventually be as one.
