Words in the week: Flogging Molly, "If I Ever Leave This World Alive"

The irony in the lyrics is what I like most about this song.  That and the mixture of music from the mandolin, fiddle and accordian with the distinct Irish and yet modern sound of Flogging Molly

We know we won't make it out of this world alive- the irony- but through all of the twists life sends us we will be all right, even on our own- part of the message.

But read the lyrics for yourself, and let them say what they will.....

If you prefer the live version...
