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

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

Miley Cyrus – “Lilac Wine”

Lilac Wine” is a song written and composed by James Shelton in 1950 and interpreted since by a number of artists such as Nina Simone or Jeff Buckley.

Lilac Wine

Jeff Buckley

I lost myself on a cool damp night
I gave myself in that misty light
Was hypnotized by a strange delight
Under a lilac tree

I made wine from the lilac tree
Put my heart in its recipe
It makes me see what I want to see
And be what I want to be

When I think more than I want to think
I do things I never should do
I drink much more that I ought to drink
Because it brings me back you

Lilac wine is sweet and heady, like my love
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, like my love
Listen to me, I cannot see clearly
Isn’t that she, coming to me nearly here?

Lilac wine is sweet and heady where’s my love?
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, where’s my love?
Listen to me, why is everything so hazy?
Isn’t that she, or am I just going crazy, dear?

Lilac wine, I feel unready for my love
Feel unready for my love

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…

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
