Howth in Spring

Let’s go out among the heather 
Leave the Spanish students behind
We’ve nowhere else to be right now
I’m switching off my mind.

Footstep after footstep
Harbour suburb melts away
Rounding a high clifftop corner
Lapis sea displayed

I’m following your footsteps on this path
Like I’ve done since ‘91
You’re my leader and my measure
Behind you I’m no one

We descend through moss green thicket
To find the rocky shore

Stripped of all our clothing
We’re human. Nothing more
