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.
