Paddy Casey – Ancient Sorrow lyrics

Got this ancient sorrow
With everyone blaming each other for tomorrow
Brother against brother
When you were crying the wolves were at your door
But you're too shy, you hope there can't be much more
You say 'i have to go away'
I can no longer stay
I love you all so much
I hope we can stay in touch
But you never grow around here
Well all along there was this feeling of shame
That you were too young
So how can you be to blame
Can you can feel forgiven
For wantin' to do some living
I saw you leaving, leaving with the dawn
First to plead for your sanity, and then you're gone
Back on the road now just tryin' to keep your heart inside
Man I hope you keep it for the mile
