Someone asked me whether this was a contest entry of any sort. This isn't. This is a song that is very close to me; those of you who know me well will know why.

The lyrics are from the perspective of my beloved Seán. I broke down and wept when writing the lyrics; Seán broke down and wept when he heard the song.

Recorded at Soundskills.

NB for those of you who do not know my workflow: I do not own a Mac; Soundskills computers are all Macs and nearly every one of them has a copy of Logic in them. The studio at Soundskills runs Logic Pro 8; there are some computers running Logic Pro X. I personally use FL Studio 20 on a PC, and anything indicating on the left sidebar that I used Logic Pro of any kind would have been recorded at Soundskills, rather than at home.

LYRICS

I
Whatever broke your heart before,
whoever threw you to the floor,
whatever made you scared
has no more power over you.
Whatever ripped you at your seams,
whoever cast away your dreams,
all these and so much more
are merely shadows.

All those who chased you far away,
all those who looked at you to say
that you were nothing more
than what they called you;
all those who dragged you across the ground,
who seemed to really like the sounds
of your screams of pain—
they're all gone now.

PRECHORUS
And shadows only show against the light.
Within your heart I see it burning bright.
The stronger it is, the harder darkness fights.
So remember me and sing:

CHORUS
No one can take away your pride,
you know you're beautiful inside,
and not a word they say could ever conquer you.
And when you feel alone at night,
when you feel nothing's going right,
come back into my arms and let me comfort you.

POST CHORUS
For I've been watching you from far away.
Remember me and just
sing.

II
And while the people round you move
in the direction that they choose,
while they go face-to-face
with life's great lottery,
you've always stood your ground and screamed
so that no one could crush your dreams.
My child, you do not know
how proud I am of you.
(to PRECHORUS and CHORUS)

LAST SECTION
For I'll be watching you from far away,
and be near you when you need me.
Will you go out there and shine bright for me?
Remember me and just
sing.
