about

A song about a young man’s coming of age, with the title paying homage to Irish poet, Thomas Moore who was known for seducing ladies with his wit & charm. The legendary “Meetings of the Waters’” is the location in Co Wicklow, Ireland where Moore penned some of his most famous works… also where singer Ian Byrne spent much of his youth.

lyrics

The last rose of summer everyone knows
Every sailor & schoolboy in the throes
A hero of rebels looking for a fight
Let loose the muse like so many times before tonight

We were late to the party we stayed too long
Remembered the words but forgot the songs
I knew all the titles to vanquish my foes
Poetry & wine were part of the plan
Making my mistakes, learning what it takes to be a man

This holy night of summer’s just begun
Tonight we’ll dance until the morning sun

Meet me at the meeting of the waters
Meet me underneath the tree

Moore’s melodies in the air
And all defenses would disappear
Soothing her with verses that roll off my tongue
Choosing every word she would offer her charms
And in the lucky morning I’ll hold her in my arms

This holy night of summer’s just begun
Tonight we’ll dance until the morning sun

Meet me at the meeting of the waters
Meet me underneath the tree
