Breathing in the night
There's nothing else I'm needing now
The wind is at my side
And so are you
And together we will rise

Above all these word and promises we couldn't keep
Together we will fly above it all
But sometimes we will fall
From the light
But it shines on us tonight
And together we will rise
And together we will rise

And surely it's a sign now,
That everything's in tune to some kind of higher plan
Surely it's a sign
That you were right
And there's the secret line
That we've been denied
But we're crossing it tonight
And together we will rise
And together we will rise

Sometimes we will fall
From the light
But it shines on us tonight
And together we will rise

Pass this line
That we're crossing here tonight
But together we will rise
And together we will rise
We will rise, we will rise

Completely reminds me of young Buckley ... in some regards anyway.
Is that you, Icarus?

Absolutely, my friend.  Superb material for my 'flu-ridden ears today.  9 from me, too.
Sound and fury, signifying little or nothing.

Meh. 
I've heard Glen Hansard before and been thrilled - but apparently I've been sheltered from The Frames..  
My ears have been forever opened... I cannot turn back now. Thanks Bill! {#Music}

First time hearing for me. Love Glen Hansard's passionate voice.

nice strings
fuckin awesome      10    (in an arty way love the album cover image too)
Wow.  This is great.  I'm in a rockin' mood, and while this isn't really that, it just works!
Love those Irishmen.
MUSIC - BIG TIME!
Enjoying it.
Caught Glen and the Frames live two days in a row in October in San Francisco. On Saturday night they played a killer show at The Fillmore, playing until almost 1:00AM in that legendary venue. His passion and commitment to the music come through in every song. The next afternoon he played a great set at The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, one of the great (and free!) music festivals in the world each year, outdoors in Golden Gate Park. At both shows Levon Helm's horn section were a nice complement to The Frames music.
Once, I saw the Frames from The Commitments. What a Swell Season that was....
Great song, Great band!
 I'd say Marianne Faithful meets Tim Buckley's arrangers.

wow- this is a surprise to hear Glen Hanson on this- very distinctive voice!
Good song.  Bonus point, maybe 2, for scorching vocals.

The lead vocalist and chief songwriter for the Frames for many years, the fabulous perfomer in the film Once, who continued the partnership established in that film in the Swell Season, who is just a great great vocalist- and judging by his off and on-stage behaviour at Pearl Jam's 20th Anniversary festival, one hell of a nice guy.

Love Glen Hansard.

 
Me too, love him.  If you get a chance to see the Frames live, jump on it.  Best live band ever.

Pure superbness!
wow, such a beautiful song. From the land of the Great musicians.

Yep, that would be Glen Hansard... Unmistakable voice...

Saw Glen the night before last, solo acoustic, right here on Cape Cod. Highly recommended, if you ever get a chance to see him like that. His voice is exquisite, can't think of anything he can't do. Highlights were a gorgeous drop d cover of Tim Buckley's, " Buzzin' Fly," and a couple of verses of, " Into The Mystic."

Stunning talent! 
So haunting, so beautiful... Almost scary...
Really like the vocals
This is a 9-er.
Wow first time hearing this....love it. So smokey sounding.
They played this song at the end of a Castle episode.

Episode 13 - Knockdown, Season 3

No, it's the guy from the Frames in the film Once! Also played the guitarist in the film The Commitments.....

Great song, great vocals!

Absolutely. This CD stayed in my player the entire first week. I still love it.

It is a powerful song... but it makes me giggle. I had a neighbor who sang (a bit over the top like this) and played guitar in various spots around the city. He would ask me to sit and listen to him play at home. I could never keep a straight face.
Holy $#!+

that song is awesome.

immediate 9.

buying it tonight. it'll be a 10 in the morning

On the cover it says this CD includes the song "Falling Slowly".  On 9/2/2010 this was played right after Ben Folds Five "Brick"  (she's the brick and I'm falling slowly..).  Do I win a prize?
 
According to the RP site for the "Falling Slowly" it hasn't been played in more than three yearsLast Played: Jul 03, 2007 - 20:28

They had one of the best live performances I've ever been too — not a breath heard during this song...
Sounded Buckley-esque to me.  I like that fact more than some of the other commenters.  Not as good as Buckley, and not a rip-off either.  I think Hansard is good in all his various projects, and I liked this tune enough to log in and comment instead of letting it "just go by"

I don't think he has anything more ,,

I also thought Buckley but for me that's high praise rather than a slagging off.  Oh and Hanio Ben Harpers latest album has some great songs with him rocking out.

Ben Harper needs to sing like this.  At least occasionally.

Upgraded from 8 to 9 for emotional prowess.
one word: sublime.
two words: f***** great

So thematically the album is a bit sad. I still think there is an underlying theme of hope, especially in this song.

I was just thinking the same thing.

I *wish* I would have heard this song.  I heard Public Image Limited's "Rise" earlier today, great song.  Does anyone know if they are the same song?
Such a good band- talent's go way past Once
definitely went and saw Once in theatres, but the sound quality was so bad we couldn't understand a word they said outside of liberal usage of the word f*ck, {#Biggrin} still really enjoyed the movie, was better when we watched it again with subtitles.  Love Glen's voice! (and marketa irglova's for that matter, but thats a little off subject)


Wow, this is so different from his acoustic version of the song.
Shades of Marianne Faithful in his voice, I like.

I completely agree. 
 
Er, that is probably because Glen is the lead singer for the Frames....
Just saw "Once". Decent movie. For once, a movie set in Ireland that doesn't have everyone saying "f##k sake" every other word.

I wouldn't necessarily call their work, "enjoyable", but I like it for some reason. As for Hansard, he's got an album in him that should be called "Songs for the Needy." 

Sounds like Tom Baxter ripped off this song for his song Skybound.

There's a good reason for that...
What a lot of noise and fuss about a shag. Just get on with it, man!
brimming with emotion
Wow, shades of Damien Rice all over that.

Not all the time, but definitely sometimes. I noticed that particularly on a couple of songs from the soundtrack to "Once".

Actually, I haven't seen that Simpsons episode, and I have no idea what you're talking about. I just happen to use "meh" to express my boredom/indifference with anything particular. Forgive me, o annoyed one, for voicing my opinion. But you know what? I'm still going to keep using the word regardless of what you think...

Just went up a point to "8" Very powerful.
Proof positive that you must ALWAYS check to make sure your equipment is grounded.
definitely an interesting song...however a little reminicent of Jeff Buckley.
THANKS RP!!! :notworthy:
The more I hear the more I like :boohoo:
interesting ... how about some DMB?
