If I Ever Needed Someone

Van Morrison

Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You
Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You

See me through the daytime
(See me through the daytime)
And through the long, lonely night
Lead me through the darkness
(Ooh-ooh-ooh) And on into the light

To stand with me when I’m troubled
(Stand with me when I’m troubled)
And help me through my strife
At times, get so uncertain, I turn to You
(Ooh-ooh-ooh) Turn to You in my young life

Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You
Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You

Someone to hold on to
(Someone to hold to)
And keep me from all fear
Someone to be my guiding light
(Ooh-ooh-ooh) And keep me ever dear

To keep me from all my selfishness
(Keep me from all selfishness)
To keepin’ me from all my sorrow
To lead me onto givingness
(Ooh-ooh-ooh) So I can see a new tomorrow

Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You
Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You

Someone to walk with
Oh, someone to hold by the hand
Someone to talk with
Someone to understand
Eh (yeah)
Yeah (yeah)To call on when I need You
(Call on when I need You)
And I need You very much
To open up my arms to You
(Feel Your tender touch) Feel Your tender touch

To feel it and to keep it
(Feel it and keep it)
Tuck it right here in my soul (yeah-yeah)
And care for it and keep it with me
(Never, never to grow old) Never to grow old

Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You
Lord, if I ever needed someone, I need You
One more time again
Lord, if I ever needed, needed someone, I need You
Lord, oh, if I ever needed someone, I need You

Lumiere, Damien Dempsey – The West’s Awake, Live @NCH

The West’s Awake

Lumiere

When all beside a vigil keep,
The West’s asleep, the West’s asleep –
Alas! and well may Erin weep
When Connacht lies in slumber deep.
There lake and plain smile fair and free,
‘Mid rocks their guardian chivalry.
Sing, Oh! let man learn liberty
From crashing wind and lashing sea.

That chainless wave and lovely land
Freedom and nationhood demand;
Be sure the great God never planned
For slumb’ring slaves a home so grand.
And long a brave and haughty race
Honoured and sentinelled the place.
Sing, Oh! not even their sons’ disgrace
Can quite destroy their glory’s trace.

For often, in O’Connor’s van,
To triumph dashed each Connacht clan.
And fleet as deer the Normans ran
Thro’ Corrsliabh Pass and Ardrahan;
And later times saw deeds as brave,
And glory guards Clanricard’s grave,
Sing, Oh! they died their land to save
At Aughrim’s slopes and Shannon’s wave.

And if, when all a vigil keep,
The West’s asleep! the West’s asleep!
Alas! and well may Erin weep
That Connacht lies in s1umber deep.
But, hark! a voice like thunder spake,
The West’s awake! the West’s awake!
Sing, Oh! hurrah! let England quake,
We’ll watch till death for Erin’s sake

The Corrs – Breathless [Official Video]

Breathless is the first single by The Corrs from their third studio album, In Blue.

Lyrics

Go on, go on
Leave me breathless
Come on
Hey, yeah

The daylight’s fading slowly
But time with you is standing still
I’m waiting for you only
The slightest touch and I feel weak

I can not lie
From you, I can not hide
And I’m losing the will to try
Can’t hide it (can’t hide it)
Can’t fight it (can’t fight it)So go on, go on
Come on, leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me
Until I can’t deny this
Loving feeling
Make me long for your kiss
Go on, go on
Yeah, come on
Yeah

And if there’s no tomorrow
And all we have is here and now
I’m happy just to have you
You’re all the love I need somehow

It’s like a dream
Although I’m not asleep
And I never want to wake up
Don’t lose it (don’t lose it)
Don’t leave it (don’t leave it)So go on, go on
Come on, leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me
Until I can’t deny this
Loving feeling
Make me long for your kiss
Go on, go on
Yeah, come on

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And I can’t lie
From you, I can not hide
And I’ve lost my will to try
Can’t hide it (can’t hide it)
Can’t fight it (can’t fight it)

So go on, go on
Come on, leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me
Until I can’t deny this
Loving feeling
Make me long for your kiss

Go on, go on
Come on, leave me breathless
Go on, go on
Come on, leave me breathless
Go on, go on
Come on, leave me breathless
Go on, go on

Sometimes You Can’t Make It on Your Own

U2

Tough
You think you’ve got the stuff
You’re telling me and anyone
You’re hard enough

You don’t have to put up a fight
You don’t have to always be right
Let me take some of the punches
For you tonight

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don’t have to go it alone

And it’s you when I look in the mirror
And it’s you when I don’t pick up the phone
Sometimes you can’t make it on your own

We fight all the time
You and I, that’s alright
We’re the same soul don’t need, I don’t need to hear you say
That if we weren’t so alike
You’d like me a whole lot more

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don’t have to go it alone

And it’s you when I look in the mirror
And it’s you when I don’t pick up the phone
Sometimes you can’t make it on your own

I know that we don’t talk
I’m sick of it all
Can you hear me when I sing?
You’re the reason I sing
You’re the reason why the opera is in me

Hey now
Still got to let you know
A house doesn’t make a home
Don’t leave me here alone

And it’s you when I look in the mirror
And it’s you that makes it hard to let go
Sometimes you can’t make it on your own
Sometimes you can’t make it
Best you can do, is to fake it
Sometimes you can’t make it on your own
