"Revelate" as written by and David Odlum Colm Macconiomaire....
My simple slant
My broken chant
My human fate
My revelate
Are you so far from me this day
That you can't say my revelate

My open arms
My lucky charm
Number eight
My revelate
I fucked it up
I rest my case
This is all too grey
My revelate

Sometimes I need a revelation
Cause sometimes it's all too hard to take
Sometimes I need a revelation
This time I'm making my own now

Does this mean we're though
Does this mean it's gone
I spent a day just to ponder the words
That I would write to you this day
But all it's too great
My revelate

Sometimes I need a revelation
Sometimes its all too hard to take
Sometimes I need a revelation
This time it's up in arms

This time I need ya revelation
Sometimes it's all too much to take
This time I need a revelation
Sometimes it's easy just to hate ya
Sometimes I need a revelation
Sometimes I, sometimes I,

Redeem yourself
Redeem yourself
Redeem yourself

    General Commentto me this song is about loss. somebody you need so much has left. it's about the pain you feel. how you try to get them back (with the lucky charms and open arms). i love this song and it reminds of my friend. i love the apin in his voice and the music is amazing. "sometimes its easy just to hate you" - amazing line. i was annoyed not to see so many comment for The Frames, but it makes this song more special to me

    General CommentIt's about a destructive relationship. She is his 'revelation' but they run through the same arguments all the time ('my simple slant, this broken chant'). In the second verse he's trying to get her back with his open arms' and his 'lucky charm' (perhaps the charm in his nature that attracted her to him) but he's f**ked it up, and it's too great to fix. The chorus is about how he needs her, but the hurt that he gets from the relationship is all too much to take. The third verse is pretty self-explanatory, they've finally self destructed as a couple and he'd go back to her if he could ('I would ride to you this day, but it's all too great'). The final rendition of the chorus has a slightly different meaning, it's how he's saying he needs her now, even though he knows they hurt each other, and that 'sometimes it's easy just to hate you'.

    General CommentGlen once explained some time ago that this song was written to himself, whilst he was looking for a record deal.

    The "my number eight" line refers to a pool ball - a number 8 ball in fact, that was given to Glen as a lucky charm whilst he was over in the USA looking for a deal. The day after he was given the ball, he and the band got a deal. And thus it's become his lucky charm.

    The "Does this mean we're through? Does this mean it's gone?" refers not to a relationship, but to his career and the band.
