We All Own The Sky – The Button Factory Dublin

Posted on 23 Sep 2020

Continuing the series from the Button Factory Dublin, here’s We All Own The Sky. I had the privilege of singing this one again for my Lutheran friends in a wonderful zoom event. We had an International service which tackled the Climate Change Crisis with St. Finians Lutheran Church of Dublin, Ireland, University Lutheran Chapel of Berkeley, California, a Catholic priest Fr. Dermot Lane and myself here in Detroit.
I’m not a religious person but I do respect that religions have an important role in society and so I was happy to collaborate because we all need to reconsider our place in the world and how we can live in harmony with the Earth.

We All Own The Sky hit home in the last days as the smoke from the California fires created a strange haze in our skies here in Detroit. I found myself looking at a very dim sun low in the sky and looking away quickly realising I shouldn’t look at the sun. Anyways, the core message of this songs is that we are all connected by the the air and the oceans and if we want to have a hope of fixing these problems we need more international co-operation.

We All Own The Sky by Enda Reilly

We all own the Sky

Blue in the day and Black in the Night

We all own the Wind

That blows around the World again 

What Have we done to her?

Changing her behaviour.

What can we do for her?

Can we even save her?

Forgive Me Mother Earth 

We all own the Seas

Americans and Japanese

We all own the Seas

Indians and Chinese

We all own the Wind

As it blows around the World again

We all own the Wind

European African

What Have we done to her?

Changing her behaviour.

What can we do for her?

Can we even save her?

Forgive Me Mother Earth

I Rolled Her Down

Posted on 22 Apr 2013

It’s Original Song Mondays again. A week goes by quick!

I wrote this song after being deprived of discovery channel for a few weeks a couple of years back. I used to watch that Deadliest Catch show a lot and in hindsight it must have been because I was missing the show, that I started writing I Rolled Her Down. So I guess it’s my take on a modern day sea chanty. The Fisherman who falls in love with the sea. I distinctly remember finishing writing the song in a campsite at a great festival in Wicklow called Knockanstockan whilst music from two different stages was colliding all around me. The song is also another experiment in using two capos, which i think worked out well.Songwriting-wise, it one of those songs where you discover a title and spend the rest of the writing of the song finding out what the title means to you. Hope you enjoy this solo version.
