about

Each Other's Shadows is a brand new song, which is inspired by the Irish phrase "Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine",
which I've seen translated as No Man is an Island. The literal translation in my opinion is more along the lines of "The people live in each others shadows". This idea had been going round my head for a while so I'm delighted it found form in this song.

lyrics

Each Other's Shadows

You got a long way to go
You got a long way to go
So
Be good to yourself
You got a long way to go
You got a long long way to go
So
Be good to yourself

Be good to one another
Like Sisters and Brothers
Be good to yourself

You got a lot of love to give
You got a lot more love to give
So
Let that love show

Be good to one another
Like Sisters and Brothers
Let that love show

Cause We All Live in Each Others Shadows

I got a lot of time for you
I got a lot of time I do,
but Oh
How time just goes

So be good to one another
Like Sisters and brothers
Cause time just goes!

And we all live in each other’s shadows

I live within your shadow
You live within my shadow
We live within each other’s shadows.
