LINER NOTES
In a Lifetime: Words by Ciaran Brennan and Paul Brennan.
OTHER NOTES
Recorded in 1985, Bono duets with Maire Brennan on the song "In a Lifetime" originally released on the album Macalla.  The song is a haunting traditional tune.  In a Lifetime was released as a single, and a promotional video was filmed for release.  The video features a longhaired Bono, with wind blowing out behind him.  This was the look that inspired the look of DC Comic's Sandman character.

The song itself has been a staple of various Clannad compilations over the years.  Each time they package together another, the song appears yet again.  It also tends to pop up on many celtic collections.  It was also released twice as a single, once in 1985 to promote the album Macalla and again in 1989 to promote the compilation, Past Present.
