I’ll Take a Glass —This Friday’s song.

This Friday’s song is “I’ll Take a Glass”, another song by Irish singer-songwriter Finbar Furey. I picked one of his “classic” songs as a Friday song a few weeks ago. “I’ll Take a Glass” is a new song. It was released on Furey’s 2023 album Moments in Time.

The song is a reflection on the singer’s life and the passage of time. It is a melancholic song, but it also has a hopeful message. The singer is grateful for the memories he has made and the people he has loved. He knows that life is short and that he should make the most of it. The song is a reminder that we should all cherish the moments we have with our loved ones.

The song is a beautiful and moving tribute to the power of love and memory. It is a reminder that even in the darkest of times, there is always hope.

Not sure if it’s my Irish roots or the stage I have reached in life, but his music is really striking a chord with me.

Here are some of the lyrics of “the song:”Il Take a Glass”:

“I’ll take a glass of life and drink it down
To the memories we’ve made, the love we’ve found
To the days that have gone, the years that have flown
And the hope that still burns, like a fire in my own”

    • I know the grey clouds over me,
      Will one day roll on by
      And I know the sun will shine again
      On this crazy heart of mine.
      I’ll take a glass and I’ll raise it to all that’s said and done
      Then I’ll sing and dance the starlight night
      Beneath the moon where love succumbed.

      [Verse 2]
      Some say people change with time
      And I know maybe some
      I know the future waits for no one
      And the past holds right from wrong
      I’ll take a glass and I’ll raise it to all, that’s said and done
      Then I’ll sing and dance the starlight night
      Beneath the moon where love succumbed.

      [Chorus]
      Moonlight, roses, I remember you
      Moonlight, roses, I remember you

      [Verse 3]
      I don’t know where the past has gone,
      I just know I haven’t failed
      I know the sun will shine again
      On this crazy heart of mine.
      I’ll take a glass and I’ll raise it to all, that’s said and done
      Then I’ll sing and dance the starlight night
      Beneath the moon where love succumbed.

      [Chorus]
      Moonlight, roses, I remember you
      Moonlight, roses, I remember you
      Moonlight, roses, I remember you
      Moonlight, roses, I remember you

      • Thank you so much for the lyrics… I’m also going to learn how to play it in guitar chords. I’ll sing it to our folk group here in the North East of England. X

  2. Over the last six months since discovering this beautiful haunting music and singing from Finbar Fury, I find that this song reverberates in my mind.

    It will always be lasting memory from this easy style, relaxing person who is truly blessed with such a unique voice.

    Thank you Finbar
