81. Maria Doyle Kennedy
Singer, songwriter and actor
My song ‘All The Feels’ goes some way towards explaining my mind, and its frequent battles with itself.
ALL THE FEELS (Lyrics)
Let me tell you how I feel
Sharp intake of breath
Adjust the position,
Let me tell you how I feel, Tension building, can you hang in? Let me tell you how I feel,
Can you bear it, will I tear it? Is it coming out too real?
Avert your eyes, adopt surprise and carry on for miles,
Suddenly bowed and brutally tired,
Of fighting myself and the way that I’m wired,
And the effort it takes to suppress the desire,
Just to let the bad guy drive, All the feelings, all the time, A restless body and a mind that lies,
Little helper makes everything quiet,
Just don’t let the bad guy drive,
Is not talking, one foot on the other,
A better way to get through the week?
What I’m proposing gets worse before it’s better,
Let me tell you how I feel.
