Come into these quarters Come explore the chambers Of this heart I’ll keep no Secrets from you but I Might not be staying long When I left it open I did not know that the Door would draw the draught in Set the embers glowing Under the sleeping logs Of a fire I thought Had expired long a- Go, when I was knocked down In the violence of the Storm of a fleeting love Go where you will, go where you will, Go where you will Love who you will, love you will love Travelling a while and Lingering a little Dip my toes into the Stream and feel the trickle Quickening my blood flow Now my nerves awaken And the buds are shaking Leaves and flowers blossom No more playing possum No longer laden down By the heavy hands of Recollection held up To reflect the patterns Of my predilection For a repeating love Go where you will… Flickering like a flame we are Changing all the time each Face we turn towards the Sun another story Line drawn into the sand Scattered like Feathers on the Breeze, we gather and settle for a While, but we could never be to- gether forever for nothing in this World can be made to stand In the way of time and Tide the lies of light will Fade the hallows of the Night will shade the spark of Love living and unplanned Go where you will...

Wake Up 03:19
Wake up, Wake up Day is breaking ground is warming Sun comes over the horizon Eyes are open birds are calling Flying low the fog is rising up Wake up, Wake up Pull on clothes and stoke the embers Kettle's on the morning fire Coffee in a metal cup Time we were all gently rising up Wake up, Wake up Wake up, Wake up

You believe in heaven You believe in hell, I don’t believe in fairy tales But I believe in life And something stays behind Even after we die Even after we die, Something stays behind And you talk about angels In a holy choir, well, I’m not sure about things with wings But there’s a song in the whistling wind Let me hear it again Let me hear it again In the whistling wind and the rain Let me hear it again So just give me one reason To go looking for help When the only meaning I know Is the one that I found myself And I’m not trying to sell It to anyone else I’m not willing to sell my soul To anyone else

Early in the morning While you were sleeping I saw them coming I saw them coming Flying one by one by one Flying one by one And the air was golden And the clouds were cotton And they were singing A song long forgotten I felt them leaving By the open window While you were breathing Silently and slow Breathing in and in and in Breathing in and in And the air was golden And the clouds were cotton And they were singing A song long forgotten

Pomegranate 03:20
Dry and papery, ruby so terrible Sweet and secret, let nobody know Broken open and scattered on the table Another year over and another shoot grows Dark and delicate, I’ll try to keep you all to myself For nobody else With a paper laid out on the table beside you And a pool of ink that dripped down to the floor Blood had broken and I wanted you more Dark and delicate, I’ll try to keep you all to myself For nobody else Sprouted seeds turned to shoots, grew some roots Wound around from my eyes to my mouth Sweet and sinful now let them all call you Grow so quietly that no one will know Dark and delicate, I’ll try to keep you all to myself For nobody else Went to be but you got in my head No red fruit just a shell and a stone Caught myself speaking only to please you Another year over and another shoot grows Dark and delicate, I’ll try to keep you all to myself

I found my mother way up on the mountain She wore a dress of the deepest blue She sang a song of the first creation The words were old but the tune was new I found my father in the woodland waiting His hands were held in silent prayer The air was still but the spirit was moving And I felt better for having been there I found my brother on the crooked highway He looked like every man I ever knew I said my brother I have been searching The whole world over just to find you I found my sister in the golden valley As the evening sun was going down And then I knew my journey was over That place would be my resting ground

For Bert 02:16

Half Blind 04:07
I have fallen foul of my desire Striking while the iron’s in the fire Taking ever more than I require So forsaking love to be admired Yet you cast your net when not one star was shining Caught my eye upon your silver lining Torn between resisting and resigning Like a fly toward a flame inclining Darling I am not opposed to letting go this time Though I fear I'll leave an eye still dangling on the line There are far worse things I could expect to leave behind Then to keep my heart intact and walk about half blind

Brían found the lyrics of this song in a book called The Legendary Ballads of England and Scotland, and adapted and arranged this version of the song to his interpretation of the melody. This is a popular traditional song in Ireland and Britain, particularly in the North of Ireland and Scotland, and versions of the lyrics and melody vary greatly across the islands. These lyrics have been chopped and changed a little from the original, and the melody is inspired by the version sung by Paddy Tunney from Donegal/Fermanagh. The love that I have chosen, I’ll therewith be content The salt sea shall be frozen before that I repent Repent it shall I never, until the day I die For the Lowlands of Holland have twined my love and I My love lies in the salt sea and I am on the side Enough to break a young thing’s heart, wha lately was a bride Wha lately was a bonny bride and pleasure in her eye For the Lowlands of Holland have twined my love and I My love he built a bonny ship and set her on the sea With seven score good mariners for to bear her company But the weary winds began to rise and the seas began to rout And my love then and his bonny ship turned withershins about There shall neither coif come on my head nor comb come through my hair There shall neither coal nor candle-light shine in my bower mair Nor will I love another one until the day I die For the high winds and stormy seas have twined my love and I Oh hauld your tongue my daughter dear, be still and be content There are mair lads in Galloway, ye need na sair lament Oh there is nane in Galloway, there’s nane at a’ for me For I never loved a love but one, and he’s drowned in the sea
