Description

Saturday night in August 2011 after a show in
Kilkenny city, I witnessed a large group of young
girls completely drunk out of their minds, falling
on the road, extremely vulnerable. It scared and
haunted me.
So you’re preparing for the weekend
Spray on colour try the high-heeled shoes
Comparing notes with all your girlfriends
Making plans for smokes and booze
Friday night’s a giddy feeling
You never know what is in store
Avoid the looks from worried parents
You go waltzing out the door
I can’t protect you from the world
I can’t protect you from yourself
I can’t protect you from the world
If I could I would
If I could I would
It was midnight when I saw you
Alone and propped against a wall
Lipstick mascara run together
Couldn’t hide the bruises from your fall
Your little wings could bring you anywhere
Your little heart is open as the sky
I’m haunted by the empty gaze
A naked truth within your eye
I can’t protect you…
Dear God take care of all the young ones
Chasing shadows in the night
I hope you guide them all home safely
Home to sleep and to the morning light
I can’t protect you from the world
I can’t protect you from yourself
I can’t protect you from the world
If I could I would
If I could I would
