“When Ya Go Away” Speaks to My Soul

The title of this post pretty well says it.
When Ya Go Away” by The Waterboys.  I first heard this song in 1988.  I’ve listened to it maybe a thousand times since then.
Still makes my soul feel a good ache deep down.  I’m only maybe a third Irish, but I feel 100% when this one’s playing.  Simple joy.  Doesn’t cost a thing. Happy to share it with you.
Enjoy.
“Now he’s brought down the rain
And the Indian summer is through
In the morning you’ll be following your trail again
Fair play to youYou ain’t calling me to join you
And I’m spoken for anyway
But I will cry when ye go away
I will cry when ye go awayYour beauty is familiar
And your voice is like a key
That opens up my soul
And torches up a fire inside of meYour coat is made of magic
And around your table angels play
And I will cry when ye go away
I will cry when ye go away

Somebody left his whisky
And the night is very young
I’ve got some to say and more to tell
And the words will soon be spilling from my tongue

I will rave and I will ramble
I’ll do everything but make you stay
Then I will cry when ye go away
I will cry when ye go away

When ye go away…
When ye go away…”
