the sun never shines on closed doors......

I saw her there from afar  Her hair grey charcoal  Takes a drag from her tar  I kissed her a smile  But her blood red shot eye  Said the son never shines on closed doors  It's been eight long years since I saw  The woman who's labored  Since the day I was born  These wrinkles now face  To that cold dark damp place  Where the son never shines on closed doors  She said the son never shines on closed doors  I open to find only hurricanes blow  Take me away back to the green fields of May  Because the son never shines on closed doors  Death comes like a theif in the night  To steal while you sleep  The soul's flickering licght  Well maybe it's then  She said, I'll see you again  Because the son never shines on closed doors  She said the son never shines on closed doors  I open to find only hurricanes blow  Take me away back to the green fields of May  Because the son never shines on closed doors  And we all go the same way home  Yeah we all go the same way home "flogging molly"

i just like the song, i thought i help you with the meaning of it........ 😁
@ButterflyBlu Dave King talked about an experience about flying back to Ireland to see his mother after 8 years, and she didn't recognise him immediatley because he had changed so much. That's what it's about.
Sooo, I'm not sure how close to 100% true the story is, but I've heard that the story behind this song is as follows: while Dave King was in "exile," he didn't see his mom for 8-9 years. She had a stroke during that time. Then, afterwards, he was able to go home, having attained his green card. The stroke had caused her to have significant memory loss, though. When he came home, he rang the doorbell and she answered the door, but she didn't recognize Dave, her own son. 😢 Thus leading to the lyrics of this song. Like I said, I'm not 100% sure of the validity of that story. A friend saw a documentary and recounted that story to me... My mom has early onset dementia. (She also happens to be of Irish descent.) I always think of her when I listen to this song. It makes me tear up. It's a beautiful song. 💜

Adele's Producer Struggled With Keeping 'Hello' A Secret
"Hello from the other side." Greg Kurstin is not going to lie, it was incredibly hard to keep his lips sealed while preparing Adele's current number 1 hit, "Hello". This week, Adele's producer sat down with the Associated Press for an interview where he revealed that he struggled keeping her hit single a secret for over a year. Not only did he produce the song, but he also cowrote it. "I'm not going to lie — it's not easy to hold that information in for that long," the Grammy and Golden Globe nominated songwriter-producer said. Since last Friday, "Hello" has topped number one on the iTunes charts in over 85 countries. It also beat the Vevo record for most views in one day with 27.7 million which is more than Taylor Swift's huge hit, Bad Blood. This is Adele's first single to be released in just under four years which helped boost some of the hype around the song. "You kind of want to shout it out, run around in the streets yelling to random strangers what you've just done," he joked. Kurstin has worked with Pink, Lily Allen, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and now Adele. He is the writer of famous pop hits, "Chandelier" by Sia, "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" by Kelly Clarkson, and "Burn" by Ellie Goulding. He was supposed to work with Adele on her past hit album '21' however it never fell into place. He did contribute to Adele's two songs within the upcoming album, "Water Under the Bridge" and "Million Years Ago". "I'm still in shock, honestly. I was just pretty blown away," Kurstin said about the success of the track. She's just so wonderful to be around. She is funny and she's just so down-to-earth...You can immediately relate to her and connect with her. I really felt very comfortable around her because she makes you feel that way. She's just cool, and then she gets on the microphone and of course blows your mind." Adele's album is set to debut November 20.
Rest In Peace: David Bowie
Today we lost a truly incredible human being. I was raised on a steady supply of David Bowie thanks to my dad, and when I heard of his passing today I absolutely couldn't believe it. I used to wake up to Modern Love just about every single day in college. At the age of 69, after a battle with cancer and a fucking AMAZING life, David Bowie passed away today, January 10. Don't know much about him? You can visit this site here to see what Bowie had already accomplished at your age. I'm 23 and at my age Bowie was kicking ass, releasing his third album, and creating the iconic pop alias - Ziggy Stardust. This man changed not only the music world, but also the definitions of masculinity, sexuality, and much more. I'm honestly grateful that I grew up knowing Bowie and am indebted to the legacy he left. This gangly kid from south London grew up to change the world, and he wanted everyone to feel like they had that power too. Below are some of my favorite tracks, but I'd love to hear yours too! Heroes "We can be Heroes, just for one day We can be us, just for one day" Modern Love "Never gonna fall for Modern Love" Under Pressure "'Cause love's such an old-fashioned word And love dares you to care for The people on the edge of the night And love dares you to change our way of Caring about ourselves" Suffragette City "Oh don't lean on me man Cause you can't afford the ticket' The Man Who Sold The World "Who knows? Not me We never lost control You're face to face With the man who sold the world" Fame "Fame makes a man take things over Fame lets him loose, hard to swallow Fame puts you there where things are hollow" Rest in peace David Bowie. You magical, marvelous you.
