And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her sky

I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes

And so it is
Just like you said it should be
We'll both forget the breeze
Most of the time
And so it is
The colder water
The blower's daughter
The pupil in denial

I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes

(Lisa Hannigan)
Did I say that I loathe you?
Did I say that I want to
Leave it all behind?

I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind
My mind... my mind
'Til I find somebody new

Seems like he could have done better than repeat "Can't take my mind (eyes) off of you," for 200 times.
Love it almost as much as I loved Morris Albert's Feelings!

Not his best work but I do like this. A solid 7 for me.

Agreed. I'm not an emotional guy, but when they played this song in the movie it kind of tipped me over.
Please, no more.
How many songs have the word loathe in the lyrics?

Obviously your screen name is horribly inaccurate.  There is no known universe in which this song could be a "1".
Sung with feeling - but often with a very dodgy sense of pitch. Makes me go 'eeuww' sometimes. :-&
Not one of his best songs. But his debut album is brilliant though. Saw him performing life at Brixton Academy in March - outstanding!!!
Sucko-barfo.
It really doesn't get much better than Damien. One of the most perfect debut albums in recent times!

Okay. Let's tell it how it is. Joe is a jackass.
I've always loved this. A beautiful tune form an usual first album.
:clap: Outstanding
annoying....
This track "The Blowers' Daughter" was the first by Damien Rice I've had the pleasure of hearing...I LOVED IT!
The album is interesting to listen to. After several listens, I've started to think that the songs are excellent but the interpretations/performances/production aren't to my liking. Kinda like how I like Emmylou Harris doing covers of Lucinda Williams songs better than Lucinda herself. I'm not sure who I'd tap to do Damien Rice covers.

There guys sure make The Four Seasons sound like a Mega Group! Where's Frankie Valli when you need him!
This is one of the weakest songs on this album - I was blown away by the rest of it...quite worth a look if the alternative-folk thing is to your liking.
Absolute crap......Tell it as it sounds.....

What's a blower?
This song is awful. I'd like to hear more of his songs in hopes I can change my opinion.
Hail Damien Rice. Hail the king of sensitive male singer songwriters. John Mayer and Chris Carraba......please take a bow! :notworthy:

I think I've like just about all the songs I've heard from this album. Anyone here have it and care to offer a brief review?
Oh retch!! Blech.
