Damien Dempsey Canadian Geese Lyrics

Down Kilbarrack road I head for the coast
As the northern estates close in
They're closing on me so blatantly
A thickening of the skin

Well, the inner city folk, they often spoke
With a tongue that was more like a fist
On the reservation six miles north
Of the slums that some still missed

(Chorus break)
Na na na na-na
Na na na na-na

(Verse 2)
We'd walk the train tracks, out to the haystacks
As the swerved towards a greener world
Under Baldoyle bridge the gateway ridge
Our hay jumped dreams unfurled

And the Belfast train nearly killed my friend Wayne
As it sped like a bullet flying
Carrying souls and dreams, like a time machine
Back to 1690 meantime

(Chorus break)
Na na na na-na
Na na na na-na

(Verse 3)
On the flat of my back, in that field by the tracks
The Canadian geese flew by
In my mind I up and join with them
And we glide out to Ireland's eye

We can be free, with a little car key
The rivers of tar can take us far
There are friends and lovers we have yet to meet
And tonight, they are watching the same stars

I was born to wander and I'm
Not afraid to be free now
My heart grows far fonder for these streets
When your face I don't see now
Why don't you drop everything tonight?
And we can ride to the sea now
I'll always return but tell me
Do you dare to be free?
Can we snatch victory
From the jaws of these streets now!
When these walls, they close in
And your heart turns to tin
Lets escape to the sea now
I can see every face
Broken ghosts of this place
And they hand us the key now
