An Domhain ar ár nGuaillí – World On Our Shoulders

Posted on 5 May 2021

I was recently contacted by Abbey from planetresolution.com and asked to do a version of the Resolution Song as Gaeilge and one day later this is what I had. There are many great versions with choirs and all manner of amazing musicians out there if you search #planetresolution. Nice to see others singing about this most important of causes and great to see how this song has brought folks from all over the world together through song. I decided to do some looping as there’s so many options for that with this song. Irish and English lyrics are below.
Beir bua! E

The Resolution Project is a global music and climate action project.
The Resolution song has been sung by thousands of people in over 100 countries.
The song is a demonstration of global unity and the will to act now to protect our planet.

Liricí i ngaeilge le Enda Reilly 2021

Taispeáin do Rúndaingne (An Domhain ar ár nGuaillí)

Tá sé fógartha
Ta sé glaoite amach
Cad feasta?

Ó ghuth amháin go
dtí an slua is mó
Cad feasta?

‘s le fáilte is fiche (‘sé an t-am agat é!)
Do gach braon aigéanach (‘sé an t-am agat é!)
Taispeán do rúndaingne (‘sé an t-am agat é!)
Deirfimis
Is lá nua amárach

Táimse seasta anseo leat sa seasta anseo liom sa
Seasta leis an domhain ar ár nguaillí
Táimse seasta anseo leat sa seasta anseo liom sa
Seasta leis an domhain ar ár nguaillí

Chuirfimis an síol
Athrímís-lái threach bonn
le haghaidh domhain níos fearr
áit níos fearr láithreach bonn

‘s le fáilte is fiche (‘sé an t-am agat é!)
Do gach braon aigéanach (‘sé an t-am agat é!)
Taispeán do rúndaingne (‘sé an t-am agat é!)
Deirfimis
Is lá nua amárach

Táimse seasta anseo leat sa seasta anseo liom sa
Seasta leis an domhain ar ár nguaillí
Táimse seasta anseo leat sa seasta anseo liom sa
Seasta leis an domhain ar ár nguaillí

English lyrics

World On Our Shoulders

We have called it out
We have said it loud
What now ?

From a single voice
to the greatest crowd
What now

With our arms wide open (Time For a Change)
For every drop in the ocean (Time For A Change)
Make a Resolution (Time For A Change)
We say
Tomorrow’s a new day

I’m here standing with you here standing with me
standing with the world on our shoulders
I’m here standing with you here standing with me
standing with the world on our shoulders

We can plant the seeds
We can make a change right now
For a better world
For a better place right now

With our arms wide open (Time For a Change)
For every drop in the ocean (Time For A Change)
Make a Resolution (Time For A Change)

We say
Tomorrow’s a new day

I’m here standing with you here standing with me
standing with the world on our shoulders
I’m here standing with you here standing with me
standing with the world on our shoulders

Cicadas Song

Cicadas Song – Latest Youtube video

Every 17years a big batch of insects comes out of the ground in Eastern USA, noisy ugly feckers but supposedly harmless thankfully. Anyway somehow I’ve written this song to amuse myself about them. And seeing as though any song written about animals etc. is automatically a kids song, then I guess this is a kids song. A bit of craic anyways. Enjoy!


1 Year Of The Enda Reilly Live Stream

Posted on 17 Apr 2021

Hello a chairde,

Today marks one full year of streaming every Saturday at 12 noon ET or “Live at 5” in Éire. That’s over 60 1hr+ long Live streams
It has been very important for me to have a weekly musical outlet to perform old and new versions of songs,
and try out different audio setups etc. I’ve really enjoyed them. But more importantly it’s kept Anne Marie and I connected with
friends and family over this past year. So Thank You! for being with me whenever you could make it.

The format definitely suits me and so I’ll be continuing one way or another and I hope you’ll continue to join me!

Hup! – One Year Live Streaming
