The street bears no relief
When everybody's fighting
The street bears no release
With lights so hot and biting

I run the stairs away
And walk into the nighttime
The sadness flows like water
And washes down the heartache

And washes down the heartache

My heart is full
My heart is mild
The saddest songs are played
On the strings of my heart

The heat is on its own
The roof seems so inviting
A vantage point is gained
To watch the children fighting

So lead me to the harbour
And float me on the waves
Sink me in the ocean
To sleep in a sailor's grave

To sleep in a sailor's grave

My heart is full
My heart is mild
The saddest songs are played
On the strings of my heart

My heart is full
My heart is mild, so mild
The saddest songs are played
On the strings of my heart

ha sempre quel qualcosa in piĆ¹ che lo rende sempre ascoltabile e mai banale 
I confess,  I did look to see which one had the stubble beard.
Really digging it!  And through the years I've grown to love Sinead!  This song really flows with the last two... thanks RP! No surprise there... Sometimes my mood sets my mood... others music puts me in a mood... prefer those times!  Thanks for an enjoyable evening...

Wouldn't have hurt if they also dropped the back 3 minutes or so of the song and sped the remainder up by about 30%.
Desperately repetitive sections, but I find it enjoyable after that big key change (would you call it the chorus?), when I can hear what I recognise as Moby. Then it drops off my radar again.
Strange combo? Yes, but it works well, imo.

Sinead is great here???
Ohh  NO!
She sounds horrid. Warbling, Off key.
This was unpleasant for the ears

 
True enough. Moby and O'Connor are great artists, but on this song the whole is considerably less than the sum of its parts, and does neither of them any favours. I honestly can't see O'Connor's impassioned angst-ridden Celticness mixing with Moby's laid-back electro-trance - oil and water, musically.
That moby is SO F talented!!!

But that's just my humble opinion.

Superb

I must need a faster processor. My old PC makes this song sound like it just goes on forever and drones on. How can two extremely talented people produce such shite? Are they not deeply ashamed? :??:
:lol: But they're certainly earnest about it all, aren't they?
I like this very much. Very melancholy in a soothing way. Or maybe the other way around.
i'm bored of sinead and i'm really bored of moby. bored bored bored.
Love Moby, but this isn't one of his best.

Are they the first bald male/female duo in the history of music? Just wondering. :p
outstanding... :clap:
Could you find a more boring duo?
Does this song ever end? :(
Dreadful Awful Hideous
:cry: :cry: God I can\'t stand this one! :frustrated:
ok. I\'ve heard enough of this one. Let\'s move along, please. Nothing of substance here. :frustrated:
I like this. It reminds me of some of the Kid A stuff. I love Sinead, but the song isn't really Sinead-y, if you know what I mean. I still like it, though. Everyone seems to have a strong opinion on this song...except for me!

Huge Sinead fan... her politics and the way she made them known aside, she has an incredibly pure voice and people should take a listen to her a bit more... I look forward to hearing this track (and possibly some other Sinead songs?) again.
Although each person may be talented enough, this cut is really wearing on me...it sounds like what happens when your cerebral cortex is only semi-funcitonal......
I like it.
I hate when people think that because you don\'t \"like\" a song that means you don\'t \"Get it\" or you don\'t \"Understand it\". I say \"no it just means I DON\'T LIKE IT!\" :p
Anyone know which way the hearse went? :p
Ho Hum sums it up. And I even like both artists (well, only early Sinead). Just Ho Hum. :moon:

i can\'t believe sinead could start a controversy on radio paradise! :lol:

There used to be a DroneZone - thanks, RIAA. On the subject, though, this song is tolerable if you're in the right space.

The tone of her voice is perfect for a song like this I think. Vulnerable but strong at the same time. Banal? mmm, I suppose you can listen to it like that, but I'd rather call it simple and effective. Besides that, I'm already glad I kinda like a song by Moby, which doesn't happen that often. Maybe I should be aware not to over react in such a case ;-)
Painful, simply painful to listen to. I\'m sorry if I don\'t see the enjoyment value in this one. Doesn\'t even sound like a song.
wow one good song after another... :)

Good song. Great album....
I love you Sinead! :D

So is that Fripp\'s guitar work being sampled?
Marginally better than root canal. :lol:
Yeah. Sounds like Morisette, fershure. Sinead is way overated IMHO. Don\'t care much for her droning and repetitive lead. Lyrics leave MUCH to be desired. uhhh...other than that it has a nice Mobyesqueishness about it. <---what did I just say??!!? :p
Nice music but jeeze, Sinead, pick a key already.
For a minute there, I thought this might be another track from Alanis\' new CD.
