LYRICS

Could you come over
Could you come over
I’m feeling blue
What will you do

You could come over
You could come over
I’m feeling bad
I’m feeling sad

Then I see the rose
I see the glory in your eyes
And Winter comes
And then it snows
I see the glory in your eyes
I’m feeling lost
I see the rose
I see the glory in your eyes
And Winter comes
And then it snows
I see the glory in your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes

Do you remember
Late in September
The banshee cries
When someone dies

Sleeping in silence
While I am dreaming
It’s all in my mind
The beauty I find

Lost
I see the rose
I see the glory in your eyes
And Winter comes
And then it snows
I see the glory in your eyes
I’m feeling lost
I see the rose
I see the glory in your eyes
And Winter comes
And then it snows
I see the glory in your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes
In your eyes
In your eeee-e-e-eyes

aaaaa-aa-a-aaaah
aaa-aaa-aaa-a-aaa-aaa-aaah

aaa-aaa-aaah
aa-a-aaah
aaa-ah
aa-a-aah na na

aa-a-aaah
aa-a-aaah
aaa-ah
aa-a-aah ah ah

aa-a-aaah
aa-a-aaah
aaa-ah
aa-a-aah ah ah

MEANING

  • Dolores mentioned in the album press release that, when she wrote The Glory, she “was trying to think about the fact that there’s always hope, there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel no matter how dark life can get. It can be difficult at times but you have to search for the light and the positive in things“.

NOTES

  • The song was written by Dolores in The Irish Chamber Orchestra’s rehearsal rooms at the University of Limerick.
  • Lyrics on this page were transcribed by our team and aim to be the exact ones (even including all the la la la’s as much as possible) as official lyrics available in different album releases are most of the time incomplete and/or sometimes have mistakes.
