Here They Come Again

About this Song:

Moira: People who know me well have frequently told me that I go over and over old grievances in my mind instead of just letting them go and looking ahead. So I thought I’d write a song about it!

Siobhan: Jazz, Easy Listening. I love the  James Bond Movie Themes – So I tried to setup one with Moira’s fantastic voice. The song is about a fight against these bad thought – James Bond enemies are also like unwanted ”family members”. Orchestra (Brass / Strings), Piano, Bass Guitar, Synthetic Drums.

Lyrics:

HERE THEY COME ROUND AGAIN

Here they come round again
Those tormenting thoughts of now and then
I’ve always tended to be this way
I inhabit the present
But I was made yesterday

Here they come round again
Those painful thoughts of now and then
They’re not my friends
More like family members
Causing regret whenever I rake over the embers

People always tell me
I’m an angry person inside
I keep an eternal flame burning
Wherever dark memory resides

I should bury the hatchet
Unsettle the score
But when I recall an injustice
I’m flexing my claws

Here they come round again
Those bitter thoughts of now and then
I’ve always been this way
I cling to the present
But I was made yesterday

It has been my experience
When stepping into the light
The next step might take you
To an endless night

Here they come round and round and round again
Those bitter thoughts of now and then

I cling to the present
But I was made long ago
