Shane in his own words 

Taken From :

IN REAL LIFE  by Lise Hand.  the official book


I remember my first day at school. My mum brought me in, and I was bawling, crying. She had to lift me up for a big kiss I was an awfully small child; no one thought I was going to grow! She left me in the classroom and, about an hour later, my older brother Finbarr came up to the window, looked in and pulled a huge face! I started to roar



I was ten the first time, and I thought it was a bit weird. When I was twelve, I tried it again. It was a bit sloppy, and I didnt know what to do. I wasnt sure what she thought about me afterwards because she was more experienced than I was. But between thirteen and seventeen I put in a lot of practice! I had to have a new girlfriend every week!



With the band, its very difficult. I date whenever I can, but its hard for me to trust girls now, and to find one who loves me for who I am, and who is happy chilling out on a couch watching videos, rather than going to parties every night. I love good-looking girls with long legs who wear short skirts and high heels. I love girls who look after themselves, but I dont like them plastered in make-up. I hate girls, who talk too much, but I have to be able to have a laugh with them, and they have to like what I do for a living. I hate bigheaded girls, even if they are beautiful. (Erm a bit fussy, then Shane?) I am fussy, but girls are very important to me, so I have to get the right one!



Id like to wake up somewhere in the countryside, and I have a big breakfast out on a patio in front of a lake. Then Id go for a walk with my beautiful wife and two kids a girl and boy. Wed stroll down to the lake that would have a few swans, and just relax. Then Id go horse riding, have a big dinner with a few glasses of red wine, then go to bed and snuggle up. Someday, Im going to sit at that lake and look back over a good and happy life.,
