The Up Rooted tour of 2003 featuring The Young Dubliners and Seven Nations had been a whole lotta fun but a complete failure otherwise and I was getting tired of wasting my time. Sensing my frustration after our show in Vail Colorado , Kieth the californian dubliner asked if there was anything he could get that would make me feel better to which I promptly replied "How bout a pizza and a beautiful girl?" Within minutes my future wife was at my side followed shortly thereafter by one of the best pizza's I ever tasted. 

We shared that pie....and everything else.....ever since.

lyrics

for a long time now 
i have been afraid 
of promises i made 
and being led astray 

for a long time now 
I’ve been drinking way too much 
leaning on this crutch 
as we've been losing touch 

I Have Seen the Mountains 
unveil a Sky so blue 
and i remember what you wore 
when I fell in love with you 

For a long time now 
We have been apart 
a pair of lonely hearts 
Beating in the dark 

for a long time now 
i have missed your smile 
and that Look in your eye 
the day i walked u down the aisle 

I have seen the mountains 
unveil a sky so blue 
and i remember what you said 
when I fell in love with you 

So here again We stand 
unbroken hand in hand 
A woman and man 
And we will be together 
…for a long time now 

I have seen the mountains 
unveil a sky so blue 
and i remember who we were 
and I'll stay in Love with You 
for a long time...
