​Against The Wind

This song is by Moya Brennan and appears on the album Máire (1992) and on the live album Heart Strings (2008).

A wall strong in numbers
Burns the midnight candle
The brave arm in arm

Stands before them now
Up against the wind
Old ways up against the wind

The game is in their hands
Calling out the color
Togetherness, their courage
Recognize the power

Make a stand before them
Old ways follows the beaten track
Against the wind
Against the wind

Defying their leaders
Holding out for free will
The strong dare to echo

Nothing can stop
Nothing can stop us now
Up against the wind
Old ways up against the wind

The game is in your hands
Reach for every moment
In rising generations
Capturing the change

Make a stand before them
Old ways follows the beaten track
Against the wind
