Bright Blue Rose

Christy Moore

I skimmed across black water, without once submerging
Onto the banks of an urban morning
That hungers the first light, much much more
Than mountains ever do.
And she like a ghost beside me goes down with the ease of a dolphin
And emerges unlearned, unscathed, unharmed.
For she is the perfect creature, natural in every feature
And I am the geek with the alchemists stone.
For all of you who must discover, for all who seek to understand

For having left the path of others, you find a very special hand

And it is a holy thing, and it is a precious time
And it is the only way
Forget-me-nots among the snow, it’s always been and so it goes
To ponder his death and his life eternally
For all of you who must discover, for all who seek to understand

For having left the path of others, you find a very special hand

And it is a holy thing, and it is a precious time
And it is the only way
Forget-me-nots among the snow, it’s always been and so it goes
To ponder his death and his life eternally
One bright blue rose outlives all those
Two thousand years and still it goes
To ponder his death and his life eternally

Nanci Griffith – Love at the Five & Dime

Nanci Griffith Love at the Five and Dime

Love at the Five & Dime

Nanci Griffith

Rita was sixteen years
Hazel eyes and chestnut hair
She made the Woolworth counter shine

And Eddie was a sweet romancer
And a darn good dancer
And they waltzed the aisles of the five and dime

And they’d sing
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight

Dance a little closer to me
Hey, it’s closing time
And love’s on sale
Tonight at this five and dime

Eddie played the steel guitar
And his mama cried ’cause he played in the bars
And he kept young Rita out late at night

Soon they married up in Abelene
Lost a child in Tennessee
But still that love survived

And they’d sing
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight

One of the boys in Eddie’s band
Took a shine to Rita’s hand
So , Eddie ran off with the bass man’s wife

Oh, but he was back by June
Singin’ a different tune
Sporting Miss Rita back by his side

And they’d sing
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight

Eddie played in the barroom band
‘Til arthritis took his hands
Now he sells insurance on the side

And Rita’s got her house to keep
She sells dime store novels with a love so sweet
And they dance to the radio late at night and still sing

And they’d sing
Dance a little closer to me
Hey, dance a little closer now
Dance a little closer tonight

Songs of Ireland – Louise Morrissey – Come Back Paddy Reilly

The Garden of Eden has vanished they say
But I know the lie of it still
Just turn to the left at the bridge of Finea
And stop when halfway to Cootehill.

It’s there you’ll find it I know sure enough
For fortune has come to my call
The grass it is green around Ballyjamesduff
And the blue sky is over it all.

And tones that are tender and tones that are ruff
Come whispering over the sea
Come back, Paddy Reilly to Ballyjamesduff
Come home, Paddy Reilly, to me.

My mother once told me that when I was born
The day that I first saw the light
I looked down the street on that very first morn
And gave a crow of delight.

Now most newborn babies appear in a puff
And start with a sorrowful squall
But I knew I was born in Ballyjamesduff
And that’s why I smiled at them all.

The baby’s a man now, he’s toil-worn and tough
Still, whispers come over the sea
Come back, Paddy Reilly to Ballyjamesduff
Come home, Paddy Reilly, to me.Come home, Paddy Reilly, to me…

Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton – You’ll Never Be the Sun

Lyrics

You’ll never be the sun turning in the sky
And you won’t be the moon above us on the moonlit night
And you won’t be the stars in heaven although they burn so bright
But even on the deepest ocean you will be the light

You may not always shine as you go barefoot over stones
You might be so long together or you might walk alone
And you’ll find that love comes easy
Or that love is always right
So even when the storm clouds gather you will be the light

And if you lose a parting side when love turns round on you
Leaving the past behind is knowing you’ll do like you always
Holding you blind
keeping you true

You’ll never be the sun turning in the sky
and you won’t be the moon above us on the moonlit night
and you won’t be the stars in heaven although they burn so bright
but even on the deepest ocean you will be the light
you will be the light
you will be the light

The Cranberries – When You’re Gone (OMV)

The Cranberries – When You’re Gone (Official Music Video)

[Verse 1]
Hold onto love
That is what I do
Now that I’ve found you
And from above
Everything’s stinking
They’re not around you

[Pre-Chorus]
And in the night
I could be helpless
I could be lonely
Sleeping without you
And in the day
Everything’s complex
There’s nothing simple
When I’m not around you

[Chorus]
But I miss you when you’re gone
That is what I do
Hey, baby
And it’s going to carry on
That is what I knew
Hey, baby

Do-be-da, do-be-da
Do-be-da, do-be-da

[Verse 2]
Hold onto my hands
I feel I’m sinking
Sinking without you
And to my mind
Everything’s stinking
Stinking without you

[Pre-Chorus]
And in the night
I could be helpless
I could be lonely
Sleeping without you
And in the day
Everything’s complex
There’s nothing simple
When I’m not around you

[Chorus]
And miss you when you’re gone
That is what I do
Hey, baby
And it’s going to carry on
That is what I knew
Hey, baby
