Turning Away

Dougie McLean
In darkness we do what we can In daylight we're oblivion Our hearts so raw and clear Are turning away, turning away from here On water we have walked like the fearless child What was fastened we've unlocked revealing wondrous wild And in search for confirmation We have jumped into the fire And scrambled with our burning feet through uncontrolled desire In darkness we do what we can In daylight we're oblivion Our hearts so raw and clear Are turning away, turning away from here There's a well upon the hill from our ancient past Where an age is standing still holding strong and fast And there's those that try to tame it And the carve it into stone Ah but words cannot extinguish it However hard they're thrown In darkness we do what we can In daylight we're oblivion Our hearts so raw and clear Are turning away, turning away from here On Racherie they have worked with their island dreams By Lough Cleggan they have nourished in the mountain streams And in searching for acceptance They have given it away Only the children of our children Know the price they had to pay In darkness we do what we can In daylight we're oblivion Our hearts so raw and clear Are turning away, turning away from here
