Lyrics

In Search of a Heart
03:53
This heart of mine won't keep
Or believe in the secret, like the moss on a stone
This heart of mine won't beat
It just carries itself away
These parting times won't break me
Deserted times stop running
Ar do chul

This form of love won't share
Or give in to a feeling with nothing to gain
No compromise in time
You're so near and yet so far
These parting times won't break me
Deserted times stop running
Ar do chul

And when i turn in silence found
What i say won't let you down
And when your call, outside my door
Ends the searching...
Second Nature
03:20
To a son it is given
Some dusty strings from the wall
Fingers touch and he plays a tune
It's a mighty air
You know the heart is there

It hides from the outside
And it shines from within

A ready pen for a picture
Fine scribes lead the way
Focus lens direct eyes that see
The gifted hands
Through timeless sands

It hides from the outside
And it shines from within

When nature takes you for a stroll
Down an avenue with so much soul
Pleasure, gifts and the ornaments
The creation found "in the moving cloud"

It hides from the outside
And it shines from within

The kind that keep holding on
And it shines within
Second nature
Turning Tide
04:41
Let me show you a face in disguise
Uncover
A colour that's faded
Swept aside by the tide.

Scene after scene, later;
There's a grey dust that's in our eyes
A misty cover;
That hides on the turning tide.

The soul of a proud man drowns

Sad insinuation
Using words that are unwise
How they waver in your eyes
Wheels within wheels are turning
By now you know

The soul of a proud man drowns
For so long a proud man

As we face the fierce wind
And the turning tide.
Skellig
04:47
Like mighty ships that sail atlantic foam
The skellig isles parade the kerry coast
It's a strange place
With a needle's eye
Where shipwrecks lie

Where the king of the world
Rested for a while
And a place for the pilgrim
A sanctuary of time
Fourteen steps to nowhere
Out of solid stone
Don't lead us to the heavens
Or lead us to the sea

The vikings came to plunder and destroy
But to this day the holy relics stand
In a blind mans cove
Where the wailing woman sighs
And the seagulls cry

Where the king of the world
Rested for a while
And a place for the pilgrim
A sanctuary of time
Fourteen steps to nowhere
Out of solid stone
Don't lead us to the heavens
Or lead us to the sea

A journey to these islands so rare
The sound of screaming souls that fill the air
A thousand wings
Against the sky
And grey seal's disguised

Where the king of the world
Rested for a while
And a place for the pilgrim
A sanctuary of time
Fourteen steps to nowhere
Out of solid stone
Don't lead us to the heavens
Or lead us to the sea
Stepping Stone
03:54
Moving drift wood stopped and stared
It proved too much for me
I'm looking at an empty shell

The young girl waiting
She's waiting there
With a suit case in her hand
She won't look back on the land

But with a change of heart
For you it might come true
It's like a stepping stone
You know it's up to you
Just like a stepping stone
You know it might come true.

She wants her freedom
To see with her own eyes
All the cities of the world
And the faces strange to hers
Strange in her eyes.

But with a change of heart
For you it might come true
It's like a stepping stone
You know it's up to you.
With a change of heart
You have to see it through
It's like a steppng stone
You know it's up to you
It's like a stepping stone
You know it might come true.
White Fool
04:40
Rothaí­ an t'saoil ag cásadh leo
Ní­l imeacht úaidh go deo
Daoine corr an t'saoil ag góid leo
Ní­ cuma leo go fóill
Rothaí­ an t'saoil ag cásadh leo
Ní­l imeacht úaidh go deo

White fool, come to a new land
There's a dark moon on the sand
Then nothing was ever the same again
This land is in their hands
A thousand years of a tribeland
Strong winds carry the pulse
Greed and lust, it strips the earth bare
When the white fool came to a new land

Cries of an anthem, cráite
Of fury and unrest, túirseach
Fix your eyes to the sound, éist leo
Of the horizon

Rothaí­ an t'saoil ag cásadh leo
Ní­l imeacht úaidh go deo
Daoine corr an t'saoil ag góid leo
Ní­ cuma leo go fóill
Rothaí­ an t'saoil ag cásadh leo
Ní­l imeacht úaidh go deo

White fool, come to a new land
There's a dark moon on the sand
Then nothing was ever the same again
This land is in their hands
A thousand years of a tribeland
Strong winds carry the pulse
Greed and lust, it stripped the earth bare
When the white fool came to a new land

Bhí­'os acu
Ar a t séan dóigh
Éist leo...
Something to Believe In
04:47
Everybody's rushing around,
Trying to keep a hold
On some piece of mind
All the time
And somebody's lookin' around
Tryin' to find
Something to believe in
To believe in
All the things they promised
They're always lies

Well it's something
Oh it's something to believe in
You know it's something

Every little once in a while
You take a chance to win
On a turning card
But it may be hard
We could be fooled on the merry-go-round
But i'm trying to find
Something to believe in
To believe in
All the things they promised
You know they always lied

Well it's something
Oh it's something to believe in
You know it's something

I've been willing and strong all along
Through chilling times
In a sea of heartbreak
Where you give and take
I won't give in to promises
Until i find something to believe in
To believe in

Well it's something
Oh it's something to believe in
You know it's something
Live and Learn
03:34
Can't you feel the change in a different way
When you listen?
Like standing in the cold on a rainy day
It didn't really matter

Had no choice you had it your own way
You live and learn

It was just a shame on another day
You know we kept on missing
So try and try again
No it's not in vain
You live and you learn

Heard that voice
Now do it your own way
You live and learn

It's what you have to say you just say anyway
Only space that matters
Taking in the rays
Holding out the pain
So you live and you learn

Take that choice
To have it your own way
So you live and learn
Many Roads
03:24
When many roads lead to nowhere
And all the places look the same
Everywhere

You just call me
You just call 'cause I'll be there

So many words said forever
And all the tales of yesterday
Fade away

You just call me
You just call 'cause I'll be there
You just call 'cause I'll be there

When many roads lead to nowhere
And all the faces look the same
Everywhere

You just call me
You just call 'cause I'll be there
Sirius
05:38
A blind bargain can't you see
In a cloud of secrecy
Voices whispering for they might get heard
Play with fire, be insane
It's a danger game, cast aside
A guiding star leads the way

Sirius

Our ocean's a red sea
But you won't change your ways
Or move close as the giant stares on
The money and the power unite
Cast aside
A guiding star lights the way

Sirius

The brightness in this sky
Light years we've tried
As our childrens echoes become lonely cries
The money and the power divide us
Cast aside
A guiding star lights the way

Sirius

And we'll see who cares
For those that dare
The time will tell
Time will tell
