The Songs Of Danny Galway

This song is by Prefab Sprout and appears on the album Crimson/Red (2013).

I met him in a Dublin bar,
The sorcerer from Wichita
A wizard and his baby grand a range
Of powers at his command
He summoned ghosts of lover's sleeping
And soldiers dying far from home
Like a stone into a well,
I fell beneath their spell
The songs of Danny Galway
Like a stone into a well,
I fell beneath their spell
The songs of Danny Galway

In words he paints a vivid scene
Of places you may not have been
Yet listening you're moved to swear:
I know that house, I've climbed the stair
I've shared those overwhelming feelings
I've suffered loss. I've known such joy

Emotions we all know
Are burnished till they glow
In the songs of Danny Galway
Emotions we all know
Are burnished till they glow
In the songs of Danny Galway

His melodies? -
Inspired whims
His chord changes?
Like Baptist hymns
They'll lift your spirit till it soars
Till you forget that spirit's yours
Sound and word in sweet communion
Echoes of a better world
Where chivalry's not dead
Go look for it instead
In the songs of Danny Galway
Chivalry's not dead
Go look for it instead
In the songs of Danny Galway
Something rare and pure
Forever will endure
In the songs of Danny Galway
