"Analyse" as written by and Dolores Mary O'riordan....
Close your eyes close your eyes
Breathe the air out there
We are free, we can be wide open

For you opened my eyes, to the beauty I see
We will pray, we will stay wide open

Don't analyse, don't analyse
Don't go that way, don't live that way
That would paralyse your evolution

La ah ah this greatest moment
La ah ah the greatest day
La ah ah the greatest love of them all

Close your eyes, close your eyes
Breathe the air, out there
Fantasise, fantasise we are open

For you opened my eyes, to the beauty I see
We will pray, we will stay together

La ah ah this greatest moment
La ah ah the greatest day
La ah ah The greatest love of them all

    General CommentDefinitely my favorite song on this album. I just wish the verse that starts "Don't analyse" were repeated in the second half (after "We will pray, we will stay together") - it's a very pretty verse, and all the others get repeated (if slightly altered), so it seems like it's missing. I always add it back in when singing it in my head. It's a minor complaint, though. I love the song.

    General CommentI think it's a fairly straightforward song...about not analysing what's going on, maybe not analysing a relationship- just take it as it comes, realise how nice things are and get lost in the happy.

    General CommentDefinitely one of my favorite songs! It obviously talks about not worrying too much about anything, don't over-think-it! This song helped me a lot like 6 years ago, I was a depressed child, I thought a lot about death, but this song made me see I only should worry about enjoying the moment and every breath you take!

    General Comment"Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know" - Ernest Hemingway

    To know that nothing has a point, to realize the futility of the daily existence of humans, to "overanalyze" in general, is to lose the sense of wonder and freedom (ignorance) that's present in most childhoods.

    I've been told many times to stop "overanalyzing" things. I wasn't overanalyzing; I was simply stopping every so often to think about my life and the motives behind thoughts and actions. People are terrified of thought, mostly because it disrupts the comfort of their carefree ignorance.

    General CommentI think this song is about being happy and letting all the troubles outside of your life for a while...sometimes people analyze too much events that can't be analyzed, maybe because we are afraid of things we don't know and that we can't explain or foresee. it's not so easy to be optimistic nowadays.
