Lyrics

Caislean Óir
02:07
Thart orainn, reált geal san oí­che
Tá'n fharraige chiúin agus suaimhneas sa ghaoth
An fharraige chiúin ina codladh sa ghaoth

Thí­os sa ghleann an ghleann an cheo
Riocht na gréine i gCaisleán óir
Tá'n fharraige chiúin agus suaimhneas sa ghaoth
An fharraige chiúin ina codladh sa ghaoth

Thart orainn, reált geal san oí­che
Tá'n fharraige chiúin agus suaimhneas sa ghaoth
An fharraige chiúin ina codladh sa ghaoth

Driocht a mheall na daoine roinn
Soilse geala i gCaisleán óir
Tá'n fharraige chiúin agus suaimhneas sa ghaoth
An fharraige chiúin ina codladh sa ghaoth

Thart orainn, reált geal san oí­che
Tá'n fharraige chiúin agus suaimhneas sa ghaoth
An fharraige chiúin ina codladh sa ghaoth
The Wild Cry
04:44
Still in time and time to say
I don't believe my eyes
Is this the place I love to hate?
Can I explain the altered state
Of the waiting room, waiting room?

And the wild cry out
It cries out loud in me

Stayed out, script at your command
A silouhette against sky
I see the changing of the faces, I see
Betrayed us, one gets free
Of the waiting room, waiting room

And the wild cry out
It cries out loud in me

Set my sights on the day
When I'll have you here by my side
And for me to share a thousand dreams with you
So far removed the days
In the waiting room, waiting room

And the wild cry out
It cries out loud in me
Closer to Your Heart
03:32
It's the same old story when someone __ you
The harder they come is the harder they fall
Taking it easy no matter what people say
And time will heal all your troubles away

I've got a notion
I might as well get closer to your heart
It's out in the open
I might as well get closer to your heart

Tossing and turning, burning dreams across the night
Forever searching
Silently waiting for such a long time
But will I know tomorrow that he will be mine?

I've got a notion
I might as well get closer to your heart
It's out in the open
I might as well get closer to your heart

So it's the same old story when someone __ you
That the harder they come is the harder they fall
Like taking it easy no matter what people say
And time will heal all your troubles away

I've got a notion
I might as well get closer to your heart
It's out in the open
I might as well get closer to your heart
In a Lifetime
03:11
Hard to tell
Or recognise a sign
To see me through
A warning sign

First the thunder
Satisfied, if the past will not lie
Then the storm
Torn asunder
The future you and I got blown away
In the storm

And as the rain it falls
Begin again, as the storm breaks through
Heavy in my heart
Believe the light in you
So the light shines in you
Without colour, faded and worn
Torn asunder in the storm

Unless the sound has faded from your soul
Unless it disappears

First the thunder
Selfish storm
Then the storm
Hold on the inside
Torn asunder
One life

In the storm
In a lifetime
In a lifetime
Almost Seems (Too Late to Turn)
04:52
Thought I care a lot
You don't believe it's true, do you?
So the answer's not
Give in before you start to try

Almost seems to late to turn
What to do if I'm to learn
Almost seems to late to turn
To you

I saw the sad decline
A rift become a storm
Stayed so cold last night
This lonely heart inside me says

Almost seems to late to turn
What to do if I'm to learn
Almost seems to late to turn
To you

Now the anger's gone
It leaves behind the pain again
Where did we go wrong?
Let go, my shadow, pass me by

Almost seems to late to turn
What to do if I'm to learn
Almost seems to late to turn
To you
Indoor
03:57
There's a rumor spreading all around
We're on the way
To a change of setting, homeward bound
Autumn day

'Cause indoor we will light the fire
Light the fires of hope
Lost between the mountain and the sun
Caught the high emotion by the setting sun

So let's leave early, don't be late
Don't delay
Though we expect you here at eight
Come what may

'Cause indoor we will light the fire
Light the fires of hope
Lost between the mountain and the sun
Caught the high emotion by the setting sun

Lost between the mountain and the sun
Caught the high emotion by the setting sun

With song and dance we greet the dawn
Another day
The parting mass will soon be gone
We're on our way

'Cause indoor we will light the fire
Light the fires of hope
Lost between the mountain and the sun
Caught the high emotion by the setting sun

Lost between the mountain and the sun
Caught the high emotion by the setting sun
Buachaill Ón Éirne
03:11
Buachaill ón Éirne mé 's bhréagfainn féin cailín deas óg
Ní iarrfainn bó spré léithe tá mé féin saibhir go leor
'S liom Corcaigh 'a mhéid é, dhá thaobh a' ghleanna 's Tír Eoghain
'S mura n-athraí mé béasaí 's mé n' t-oidhr' ar Chontae Mhaigh Eo

Rachaidh mé 'márach a dhéanamh leanna fán choill
Gan choite gan bád gan gráinnín brach' ar bith liom
Ach duilliúr na gcraobh mar éideadh leapa os mo chionn
'S óró sheacht mh'anam déag thú 's tú 'féachaint orm anall

Buachailleacht bó, mo leo, nár chleacht mise ariamh
Ach ag imirt 's ag 'ol 's le hógmhná deasa fá shliabh
Má chaill mé mo stór ní dóigh* gur chaill mé mo chiall
A's ní mó liom do phóg ná'n bhróg atá'r caitheamh le bliain

A chuisle 's a stór ná pós an seanduine liath
Ach pós a' fear óg, mo leo, mur' maire sé ach bliain
Nó beidh tú go fóill gan ó nó mac os do chionn
A shilfeadh a'n deor tráthnóna nó'r maidin go trom
Blackstairs
04:15
Colder eyes, they look through me
Stare those eyes at me

You must be one of those girls
Who live on the blackstairs
Yes, you must be one of those girls
Who live on the blackstairs

There's no disguise upon your face
You're not like anyone I know
They give so freely and they come when I come out
But you're the one, the one I want to understand

You must be one of those girls
Who live on the blackstairs
Yes, you must be one of those girls
Who live on the blackstairs

You're not scared, no, you don't answer
You just stand there, face the stairs going home
If I could choose my own way down
I'd take the road to the blackstairs

You must be one of those girls
Who live on the blackstairs

Sadness raging in the broken man
Stays until the day ends
When he is free to think of better days again
Looks the scales of love and time are all the same

You must be one of those girls
Who live on the blackstairs
And I long to up there
And live on the blackstairs
Yes, you must be one of those girls
Who live on the blackstairs
Journey's End
02:43
Blue waves are rolling
Visions in my mind
Of a strange voice calling
Journey's at an end, journey's at an end
Journey's at an end, journey's at an end

Hear the anchor sinking
Voices ringing clear
Farewell from my kindred
And friends I love so dear, and friends I love so dear
Journey's at an end, journey's at an end

Lost streams are fading
They sweep across the vale
And with oceans of meadows
To bring me back again, to bring me back again
Journey's at an end, journey's at an end

Long have I traveled
In storm, in the sun, in the rain
And it's homeward singing
Journey's at an end, journey's at an end

Journey's at an end, journey's at an end
Journey's at an end, journey's at an end
Northern Skyline
04:58
Sit awhile staring at the ocean
Riding high the boats flying motion
Just a smile, tears and emotion
Storm rise on the northern skyline

Shadows are haunting me drifting down to the sea

Remember when we used sing the old songs
Of friends that part to sail to a new land
Without a smile, so long a journey
Storm rise on the northern skyline

Shadows are haunting me drifting down to the sea

Rest awhile staring at the mountain
Reaching high, the valley's far below us
See for miles __ the clear horizon
Storm rise on the northern skyline

Shadows are haunting me drifting down to the sea
