Where Lagan stream sings lullaby
There blow a lily fair
The twilight gleam is in her eye
The night is no her hair
And like a love-sick lenanshee
She hath my heart in thrall
Nor life I owe, nor liberty
for love is lord of all

and often when the beetles horn
Hath lulled the eve to sleep
I steal unto here shielding lorn
And thro' the dooring peep
There on the cricket's singing stone
She makes the bog wood fire
And hums in sad sweet undertone
The song of heart's desire

Not the only one
Jeez. What a dirge! Fit her with a couple of AA batteries and place her on a foggy sea cliff. That'll save shipping and clear the fog at the same time. I gave it a 3 star but might have to score lower. Not her best I think
RIP Shane, and God Bless Sinead. So sad. I hope she finds closure.
Horslips did an instrumental version of this on their album The Book of Invasions...it rocks!
Such a great song. Regrettably this effort is turgid.
Far from my fav Sinead track, but powerful and passionate, as she certainly is. I understand why a listener wouldn’t like her jarring voice, but on an ethereal level, she is bold, bald and beautiful. 🔥
I'll go against the negative sentiments here and say that I like this rendition of the old Donegal lullaby. 7 
terrible
Pretty enough words, but does she have to bellow them?  Ugh.
never heard this  before. i'm a big sinead fan and this is really pretty, thanks!

I love this song! It's incredible how sinead's voice is so powerfull and yet so delicate at the same time. Actually, this CD was one of my favourites of last year.

Sinead is a good choice and even if this song is not an overwhelming favorite it's always nice to see another side of an artist that is not normally seen unless your a fan. Thanks for submitting it Kelli (even though I don't really like it - sorry)

I've caught bits and pieces of that concert myself. I often like Sinead but after watching that concert I think she often performs her songs with elements of this unappealing (IMHO), overly exagerated, cacophonous style that is seen here. I don't think I could sit through one of her concerts unless I sat near the door and could make an easy exit when my ears felt assaulted.
I only caught the last half of it, but wow! What a voice! You done good.

Oh no... oh no... I am going to...RAAAAUUUULLLLFFF..
Sinead has one of the most distictive and alluring voices ever. The tone and phrasing of her songs are always familiar,(as are Bjork\'s, for that matter...) and on the surface they can all sound the same, but upon deeper listening, there is something great and unique going on.
