Aoife O’Donovan – Age Of Apathy Lyrics

Age Of Apathy Lyrics By Aoife O’Donovan

Ooh, let’s take a ride
I know you love the Taconic at twilight
Go East on 23
Past the farms and the festival memories
Listening to the Hudson Valley breeze

Oh, to be born in the age of apathy
When nothing’s got a hold on you
If you need someone to hold, you can hold me
Under the shade of a quaking aspen tree
We came for New England’s party
But the colors haven’t started, so it’s just you and me

When did you start to change?
Was it somewhere up along the coast of Maine?
Or when we drove back down 95?
We got stopped at the border but we made it out alive

The radio played Yellow Moon On The Rise

Oh, to be born in the age of apathy
When nothing’s got a hold on you
If you need someone to hold, you can hold me
Under the shade of a quaking aspen tree
We came for New England’s party
But the colors haven’t started, so it’s just you and me

Hold me like you held me on the day the towers fell
When we stumbled over to the christian science center pool
Was it the end or the beginning? All I remember is the singing
And the music trying to drive away the fear

I’m still here

Somewhere down the line
I let go around 2009
Lost the feeling in my hands
I guess it’s one that no one understands

The radio plays My Old Man
There’s a singer in the park
He’s a walker in the rain
He’s a dancer in the dark

Only the decent people know to stay home
Keeping us thethered to
The back home band
Keeping away the long slumber
