Come away little lass come away to the water,
To the arms that are waiting only for you.
Come away little lass come away to the water,
To the ones appointed to see it through.
We are calling to you.

Come away little light come away to the laughter,
Show yourself so we might live.
Come away little light come away to the laughter,
To the ones appointed to see it through.
We are coming for you.
We are coming for you.

Come away little lamb come away to the water,
Give yourself so we might live anew.
Come away little lamb come away to the slaughter,
To the ones appointed to see it through.
We are coming for you.
We are coming for you.

Super pretty backing vocals.

Perfect for a Sunday AM with coffee...and isn't that a banjo?
And it sounds like a siren song to me...

I'm guessing this is a song about JC?
Super pretty backing vocals.

I came slowly to the Glen Hansard party, and now I just think he is one of the most remarkable musicians out there. Eloquent, emotional, sensitive, powerful. Sensational voice, lovely guitar work, and seems like a straight-up good gent. Big big fan.
lol
So cold it burns !

I think you may be right and I missed it.  Hard to remember for sure that far back.

I honestly want to know what point they were making. A survey of old comments shows that the poster has a habit of posting cryptic messages. I'm gonna treat this like a rash - an irritation caused by exposure to a toxic substance - which either this is the product of a primitive chatbot or a steady supply of really good drugs.

 
I've observed previously that twoplain2sea's posts look just like old IRC chatbots.  While there's a rare post that looks like it might have come from a real human, I don't think most of them do.

I think the same thing with most of his posts, which amuse the hell outta me, and my sarcasm may have been hidden with the use of italics - LLRP and all you COOL posters ;-) 

Oh....I'm gonna +1 this to 8 now....it's the Irish wife causing it (and we'll be celebrating our 11th anniversary on 11/11!!) 
Oh good something else besides falling slowly

Who has seen "Once" from 2007? A great little movie. They made it into a Broadway show, too.Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová wrote the music.

twoplain2sea with what appears to be a normal post and not the usual perplexing prose he posts.  I was a bit hesitant to google "age-sex and pyramids" at work yet I found age-sex to be a statistics phrase (no doubt!) and then got lost in articles on pyramids...like this one...

I'm at a 7 on this song might go to 8 one day...Long Live RP!!
My first listen to to this artist, and really impressive, an instant 8.

Sorry, been to too many afternoons in old houses with people who take themselves far too seriously and want to drag me down with them.
A rollicking good Irish holiday is indicated. 
I'm intrigued.  I want to know who "the ones appointed to see it through" are that this man speaks of. 
a voice with the very sound I expect from that serious looking painting of a man
As much as I dislike Maroon 5, I love their version of this song
Glen just keeps getting better. My favorite guitar troubadour.
Nice piece for a dreary Friday afternoon. Helping with the report writing.
