I hope you're happy now...
...I could never make you so...
you were a hard man...
no harder in this world
you made me cold and you made me hard
and you made me the thief of your heart

Winter is cold...oh!
But you're colder still
and for the first time
I feel like you're mine
I share you with the one who will
mend what falls apart
and turn a blind eye
to the thief of your heart

Ohhh you lost
Ohhh you lost all
you lost all
you lost all

I'll never wash these clothes
I want to keep the stain
Your blood to me is precious
nor would I spill it in vain
your spirit sings
though your lips never part
singing only to me
the thief of your heart

Ohhh you lost

Ohhh you lost
Ohhh you lost all
lost all

Ohhh you lost
Ohhh you lost all
lost all

Yep.  Empire with Bomb The Bass is another one.

Best avatar I've seen for a long time.  Quick Draw McGraw lives.

that's mad, I didn't exactly the same thing in The Savoy in Dublin, I get chills when I hear this. the opening song as well, leading up to the bomb in the pub, jesus Christ, shocked everyone in the cinema.

But seriously, folks... check out the beef between Sinéad and Miley:

Newsflash: the Miley Cyrus comment was a JOKE.

 
I suspected that was the case. And I cannot picture Sinead swinging on a whale-sized ball and chain.
If you like rarish Sinnead tracks, listen to her version of Silent Night - with good headphones or sound system.
I saw the movie in 1993 and really liked the music so I bought the CD.

Ya, me too, a for real double take.  I hadn't heard this song, I like it.
 Please, Please, go see the film!!! 1902canoe wrote:

Missed the film and the soundtrack in '94, so this is actually fresh to my ears.... really like it!  I'm somewhat embarrassed because I was really listening to U2 and Sinead back then.  How did I miss this??  I've always loved the U2 soundtrack / side project stuff like Passengers, Million Dollar hotel and Captive, so this is a nice addition to my collection.

Singing-wise, I guess opinions can vary, but Sinead's a much better cook than Miley.  You've got to try her Orange-Poppyseed scones - they're awesome.

Certainly one of them.  I think Bjork is more innovative and playful but the dark Celtic heritage and heartfelt nature of Sinead's singing is more powerful.

Compelling, as always.
Just the kind of mood I'm on on this cloudy Black Friday.
Notwithstanding all the controversy in her life, Sinéad is still a highly underrated and talented musician.
When I go there, I go there with you.
Right now, jeez, this is massively depressing. NEXT!
Despite her personal issues (we all have some), an amazing, unique talent.  I wish the best for her.

Why don't artists can have their privacy? Or someone wanted to schedule a promotional case? ;-))

Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a heart.

Is this song about murder?

Sinead looks a bit masculine in that album cover.

Gripping, powerful song.  Same for the movie!  Only improvement I'd like to hear is to lose the synth-looped drums.

Sinead can turn up the intensity to a level that would simply be affected and absurd in most artists. With her, it's haunting.

 

Exactly. (Hey neighbor! ) Hillsboro-ite here.....
I never get sick of this one. It just kicks ass in the best, most Celtic-sounding possible way.
 
It really helps to have heard it in the soundtrack while watching In the Name of the Father. 
Not for me! ick

Bernadette Mary in fine form.
She just did a show here in my town - great band she had with her.
Her voice was perfect and she sang with the intensity that we know of her.

 
I can safely say that I've never had a chick feel this way about me before.  Fortunately.  {#Stop}   {#Eyes}
Very nice!
This has to be one of her best songs ever. Gives me goosebumps.
 
Then put that together with its association with one of the best movies ever, and oh my god!

Goosebumps..  It's as if Sinead has put all the sadness that is Ireland into one song.... I must get this soundtrack.

Hey Bill...Sleepy Maggie by Ashley McIsaak would go great after this!!!

I don't think "nice" is quite the word for either this song, or the movie. Devastating maybe.
She is an amazingly passionate creature.
Ah Sinead, when she was good she was grrrreat! This is a great one. And what the heck is that some kind of electrified violin in the background? It's epic. It sounds like it's being played by the Tasmanian Devil. Love it.

Yes, very nice.

Pretty powerful stuff. I admire an artist who just lays it all out there. No compromises. No fluff.
There is nothing "Nice" about this song, lyrically.  I love angry Sinead.
This is really really captivating, the voice.  Made me stop in the middle of my Amazon shopping just to listen.
One of those "great talents" that just makes me cringe.  I know, I know, I just don't "get it."  I really don't.   {#Zip-lip}
That VOICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nice song, nice movie
Ok...my little valve amp is making me cry...wow....what a vocal...wow...

Both incredible voices, tho,one must admit.
Anyone know if that's Ashley MacIsaac on fiddle in this song? Sure sounds familiar....

Beautiful! I love this movie!

If you called her a "chick" to her face you'd be eating knuckles. This is one tough, if mixed-up and traumatised, woman.And she sure got it right about the Pope, now that the Catholic Church paedophile scandal is out in the open.

Brilliant song on a great soundtrack - St. Patrick's Day block indeed.  Slainte!
Methinks we are two songs into a St. Patty's day block...

Wow, what a great song.
Joe Piscapo as Frank Sinatra on SNL: "Sine-aid O'Connor, what's up with you, Cue Ball?"

Yeah, not all that funny, but it takes me back. Anyway, I like the intensity of her voice. She's not given to half measures of passion.
What a waste of great talent. 
 
Had never heard this before RP. Really cool!!!
Ahhh...such beauty, power and grace...
She may be fodder for gossip again, but she has always had the beautiful voice. Wonderful song and sung with grace.

Who cares about Madonna-esque mega stardom.  Sinead O'Connor can sing circles around Madonna Louise Ciccone.

So true.  Her voice, has a piercing and pure quality.  Just listen to it on this track, her album "I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got," as well as her work on Peter Gabriel's "Us" album.  I hope she can keep her personal life together and keep making good music.

Yes. Her amazing, amazing voice.

Damn, she's pissed.  Like Alanis Morissette pissed. 
A little Vangelis like keyboard added in makes this one of her best tracks.
