Song Description

Knowing that something real and true is better than something fanciful and unrealistic A love song Conviction of love Dispelling doubts of others

Story Behind the Song

Real meaningful love is better than big fanciful ideas. Good things in front of you are better than far away dreams of something bigger and better. Sometimes the best things in life are right in front of you!


They All Said
Brigid o'Neill 2015
Intro Ooooh.....first two lines
Verse 1
They all said the storms were gonna get here
Rollin' on in from an angry sea
But all I saw when I went out to greet them
Was a cool north Atlantic breeze

Verse 2
They all said there'd be a lunar eclipse
An awesome sight to take your breath away
But all I saw was a low glow in the dark west
At the end of a lovely day
They all said you would blaze so briefly
Potassium flare to singe my heart
A shooting star to burn a trail then leave me
But you burn low
And you burn slow
There ain't no way we're gonna part

Verse 3
They all sad there'd be a shower of meteorites
Never again would you get that view
But lying out, all I saw was one star
Burning long and fierce and true

Some dreams are made I'd say
Up in that dusky milky way
But dont you miss the things of worth
Closer to earth
Repeat Chorus
