Jig Of Life

Hello old lady
I know your face well
I know it well
She says ooh-na-na, na-na-na, na-na-na
I'll be sitting in your mirror
Now is the place where the crossroads meet
Will you look into the future?

Never never say goodbye
To my part of your life
No, no, no, no, no
Let me live
She said, come on let me live, girl
She said, come on let me live, girl
(Come on, let me live)

This moment in time
(She said)
It doesn't belong to you
(She said)
It belongs to me
And to your little boy and to your little girl
And the one hand clapping
Where on your palm is my little line
When you're written in mine
As an old memory?
Ooh-na-na, na-na-na, na-na-na, na-na-na, na-na-na, na-na

Never never say goodbye
To my part of your life
No, no, no, no, no
Well, never, never, never, never, never
Let me go
She said, come on let me live, girl
(Come on, let me live)
She said, come on let me live, girl
(Come on let me live)

I put this moment here
I put this moment here
I put this moment over here

[Paddy narration:]
Can't you see where memories are kept bright
Tripping on the water like a laughing girl
Time in her eyes is spawning past light
Run on the ocean and the woman unfurls
Holding all the love that waits for you here

Catch us now for I am your future
A kiss on the wind and we'll make the land
Come over here to where when lingers
Waiting in this empty world
Waiting for then, when the life spray cools
For now does ride in on the curl of a wave
And you will dance with me in the sunlit pools

We are of the going water and the gone
We are of water and the holy land of water
And all that's to come runs in
With the thrust on the strand
