Lyrics
Hello You Who
Hello you who moves with me in a dance
Hello you who moves me like the sea
Hello you who shows me what our fears are made of
Who love me Love loves me just to be
I’ll hold you, hold me closely
All that I can give you know I want to
All I have to offer it’s all for you
I’ll hold you, hold me closely
Goodbye to those starless skies, empty eyes, sorrow cries,
“no not goodbye”
Goodbye to the dawning of the star inside our turning around
Your sunshine eyes
I love you Love love you just to be
Peace Tonight
She lives above the motor line
Staring out those deep brown pearly eyes
She’ll cast your spell, she’ll hold you well
You remember well, you remember well,
you remember well.
She calls the circle, she sets the tone.
She lights the candles that burn on.
Staring out into the sun
She says what new day has come
Oh what a thing to have a star
A wishing well, I wish you well, I wish you well.
She thanks the sky, and she walks the earth.
Her tears that fall are beautiful.
She says my people, she says my tribe,
all good lovers out there, peace tonight, peace tonight.
Petals
Changes will continue but I’ll never give in to
The woman that you’ve assumed me to be
Thought that I had seen
Could feel me beneath you
Beneath a distant longing..
To arrive
There’ll be no more waiting
No sorrowful blaming
I’m sitting right where I’ve wanted to be
I am and I am not
These petals pressed into
These pages unnumbered
I am and I am not
But then I remember
And when I remember
It seems that I become more of what I remember
Which is not necessarily insanely related
Or jaded or tainted by bleak memory
In fact I’m enjoying
The lifting of morning
These petals intended for giving release
On and On
Chisel the stone, inward there you go.
Pretty soon you’ll learn there’s nowhere else to go or turn.
The halls, the mirrors, the chains, the fears
And breath you’ll hold.
But the crowning queen, well she’s spinning like the world.
And she goes on and on, she goes.
The teller of tales of stories long forgot,
He’s still speaking in tongues and he’s rolling in the plot.
With a wheel that spins, without, within a heart of fire.
With your breath upon the embers as the flames grow higher.
And he goes on and on, he goes.
The truth can die ever so young
Reborn upon the beds,
Of the dying tongue so many have sworn,
For all truths to be said.
Night it falls upon desire where forgotten dreams.
In our eternal flames and fire our bodies wax and wane.
And it goes on and on, it goes.
Raindrops
Raindrops on the rooftops he said
Just stop and listen
Constant as the earth quakes
As the day breaks
Stop and listen
Careful is the movement
Light a candle in the basement
But there's sunlight
On up the stairs
I'll go up there just to see it
Raindrops on the rooftops he said
Just stop and listen
Constant as the earth quakes
As the day breaks
Stop and listen
Season Song
I opened a book and found a four leaf clover.
Turned the page and there was October.
As I stared into Autumn’s eyes, I saw a death that never dies.
And I watched as the leaves were turning,
Falling into the wind and swirling.
How we break, we mend, we tremble.
And that’s how I found November.
And we spin, another day, another dawn.
Another year, another song.
Into winter we surrender.
Deep into it’s splendor.
In mirth we warm our bones, we dream these seeds we’ll sow.
Praise the birth of a star, for January is not too far.
A saviour like the sun it shine, resurrecting one more time.
And we spin, another day, another dawn.
Another year, another song.
Oh the joys now I remember.
I think i’ll tell you in a letter,
Of all the love in a budding rose.
How flowers come and flowers go.
And to the drunkards that dance on tables,
One fell off right into April.
To the hour of a child’s birth.
To the evening of all her searching.
And we spin, another day, another dawn.
Another year, another song.
Furthest Shore
(a later part of the Curragh story from the perspective of the once lost child as a
grown man)
I've seen the furthest of the shore
I felt the deepest of the sea
Carried away that fateful day
My mother calling after me
Heard my mother calling after me
The rope released when lightning shone
From all that I had ever known
Out on the waters one alone
Oh how the waters they had grown
Oh how the waters they had grown
The night it faded into day
The sky and sea seemed without end
For loving mother I did pray
I heard her strength inside the wind
I heard her strength inside the wind
And with the wind there came a ship
Like nothing I had ever seen
'Cept for the lady carved on the bow
Like my mother so she seemed
And the faces they were many
Smooth and dark with eyes that showed
They'd take me in and care for me
And raise me as though I's their own
They raised me as though I's their own
I've heard the furthest of the shore
I've felt the deepest of the sea
Seems everywhere I go is there
The songs my mother sang to me
"deeper than the sea"
Sea Monster
I’m going out over the sea
I’ve got a boat, I’ve got a dream
I trim the sails with my own hands
leave all my thought back on the land
I’m going out over the sea
I won’t be back until I’m free
I hear a voice, a siren’s review
I hear it calling out of the blue
a song of a strange unbearable thing
it grows in the water, it goes unseen
I’m going out over the sea
hearing the song I’ve come to see
What is this monster in the gyre
all that’s thrown over the side
and I want to know…
How we live in a world that provides and expires
how we grow, come to know our hearts desire
I’m going out over the sea
all I have heard, all I have seen
we are all out, out in a dream
we are a boat, we are the sea
After all the rise and fall is all that still remains
When I Fall
When I fall, Lord let me fall
When I rise, see you standing there
A light beyond the dark
A love that is unbound
A veil that shields our eyes
As the sun goes down
When I fall, Lord let me fall
When I rise, see you standing there
We start, where we find ourselves
In heartbreak, doubt and pain
It's here, within these walls
That we transcend and begin again
When I fall, Lord let me fall
When I rise, see you standing there
When I fall, Lord let me fall
Home in Your Heart
Falling down
Spin me ‘round
No one said this would be easy now,
but you’ve gotta keep moving somehow.
Drifting ‘round
Cold river bound
Someone said to me one day
“head on down to the waters and stay a while”
Go down to the soul of the river
Go where love found you there
Feel deep down them goosebumps and shivers
Go where the mouth of the river runs wide
And don’t push that river
Let the river move you along
Home in your heart and there’s heart in your home
Don’t force nothing, something will come around
Light as a feather when you’re homeward bound
You said it’s sown from the smoke heavy roads
You dance along, all your words turn to prose,
but you’re not bound, no shameful regret
You set your sails and move full speed ahead
Don’t push that river
Let the river move you along
Home in your heart and there’s heart in your home
Don’t force nothing, something will come around
Light as a feather when you’re homeward bound
Light as a feather when you’re home
Falling down
Spin me ‘round
No one said this would be easy now
but you’ve gotta keep moving somehow.
Don’t push that river
Let the river move you along
Home in your heart and there’s heart in your home
Don’t force nothing, something will come around
Light as a feather when you’re homeward bound
Light as a feather when you’re home
Close as Can Be
Is it true?
Heard a cry
You've gone away
Saying now it's plain to see
Through you
Like the shadowy photograph
Or stars in the morning
They say you've gone away
But I feel you near
You're lifting the leaves
Saying to me
We'll be close as can be
Now that you know
However that goes
Do you still lie
Down with denial
For the nearness of you not to be
That's hard to see
If you've gone away
Where've you gone to?
Cause I feel you're near
For now
Somehow
And I hear your ghost
It's calling me out
From all of my doubts
Saying to me
Someday that we
Will be close as can be
