MY MUSIC & SONGS ARE FOR EVERYONE BUT NOT EVERYONE WILL LIKE THEM.

Biography

Holistic healing is one of the core motifs that has been central to the song writing of the enigmatic Gerry Maguire over the last three decades ( Sit with it, The Process, Wisdom & Satellites...) A critical overview of his crafted lyrics and their subtext reveal and put into clear context what Gerry is about. He humbly observes, empathises, examines, both generalises and details the many facets of the human condition. Gerry writes about personal and public conflict, love, loss, cameos from life .He never preaches but just puts it out, shares and suggests from simple truth, experience and gleaned wisdom. He humbly asks that you take what belongs to you from him and that you 'sit with it'. "When people connect with some of my songs - those songs just become mirrors, all I'm doing is holding up the mirror for them.

Hailing from a well known Dundalk music family the modest Gerry Maguire has been writing, recording and performing his own songs and music since his teens. Over the years his work has found its way into plays, documentaries, short films and radio stations from Beijing to Boston. His songs are in the collection of presidents and repertoire of American blue grass singers.
Gerry has worked and recorded his songs & music with some of the finest musicians in various genres over the years - from Traditional Music (Arty McGlynn, Nollaig Casey) to Jazz (Ritchie Buckley, Rod McVey, Robyn Robbins, Nick Scott) from Pop & MOR (Patrick Dunne, Liam Bradley, James Blennerhasset) right up to Hip Hop and R&B (Ken McHugh, Stella) .In 2006 the prolific Gerry was among the Irish at the Cannes Music Festival & had a classic version of his song ‘Crazy Love’ on the Irish Music Industry CD which also included tracks from the likes of Rodrigo Y Gabriela, Turn, and Leya to name a few.
There’s lots more about this man whose stop/start career has spanned three decades but as Gerry says himself “My music and songs are what I’m about: when someone gives me their time to listen to my songs and finds something of value there – what more is to be said?”

Lyrics

crazy love

Written By: gerry maguire

1.crazy love - puts you out & takes you in,
crazy love- puts your head into a spin,
unconscious to heartache you flow with the breeze,
in sickness & suffering it's all that you need,
regardless of warning there's nothing you'll heed,
it's just crazy .......

refrain: crazy love x 4

2.crazy love- hits you anytime at all,
crazy love - never sees those boundary walls,
straight into action- it moves with such ease,
before you can mask it you're hearts on your sleeve,
madness or faux pas there's no time to see,it's just crazy .......

refrain: crazy love x 4

3.crazy love sneaks right up & pulls you down.
crazy love - lost your heart but life you found.
a wave of emotion you're surfing that sea,
deaf to the forecast you're all out to sea.
it's all down to kismet is what you believe.it's just crazy .......

refrain: crazy love x 4

Rainy Day
Rainy day clouding in on top of you,
Feel the grey go blue down where you’re cold
To seek that wonder and share with you a purpose bold,
I long to hear the echoes of your soul ..............
Refrain
Rainy Day, Rainy Day
Rainy Day, Rainy Day
(2)
Sail away softly through your silent mind,
Guide your light quite naked into space,
Breath expanse and now as mist we’re face to face,
Diffused in time such treasure I behold .................
Refrain
Rainy Day, Rainy Day
Rainy Day, Rainy Day

Pitter patter numb in distance
Fading rhythm coming close
Crystal clear in patient whisper
Seduced in the sounding .....................
I think I hear the echoes of your soul
I think I hear the echoes of your soul
(3)
Rainy day, washing back from whence it came
Swell it’s wave a rolling back to shore
True and go but do come back to say hello
I live to hear the echoes of your soul
Refrain
Rainy Day, Rainy Day
Rainy Day, Rainy Day
I long to hear the echoes of your soul x 2
I long to hear the echoes - I live to hear the echoes
of your soul - Rainy Day
