about

This track was recorded in Open Door Studios in Limerick City in May this year, it's just a little demo - I've just come away from a tour in the UK where they're coming to the end of Mental Health Awareness Week. A great initiative. Every week should be Mental Health Awareness Week, really.
www.awarenessdays.com/awareness-days-calendar/mental-health-awareness-week-2018/

Later this month I'll re-release Tug O' War, a track that talks about my own struggles with anxiety. This song however is about men's mental health, and the obstacles put in place in our society that prevent men from opening up and talking.

Please talk, we love you.

All proceeds from sales of this track will go to an Irish charity - please let me know what resource, group or charity have helped you, and I'll chose one.

lyrics

When the boat did rock
Well he threw his sails to the wind
And he didn't mind the rain, it felt cool on his skin

But it came as quite a shock
To find himself at sea
But he didn't mind the solitude, it felt new to be free

And the boat did try to cast him off
But he clung with both hands to the mast
Yes the boat did try to cast him off
You must cling with both hands to the mast

And the times that he felt his fingers slip
And he thought that he'd jump ship
He felt a cool breeze, a voice on the ocean
And it was soothing
And it made him steady

And the boat did try to cast him off
But he clung with both hands to the mast
Yes the boat did try to cast him off
You must cling with both hands to the mast

He came in from the sea
And with his feet on solid ground
Well sure he wondered what all the fuss had been about

He came in from the sea
He came in from the sea
He came in from the sea
He came in from the sea
