X Keep On Knockin'



X Keep On Knockin'

This is not at all what I wanted,
I tried, I smiled, I did
So sing me a song
Sing me a better one than that I got

Gone out West I’ve gone to try my best
To get to the next step up,
So play me a melody,
Play me a better one than what I got

Chorus
I keep on knocking but I can’t get in,
I keep on trying but I never win,
I keep on dreaming but my dreams don’t last,
I keep on going and I oh oh oh (x2)

Oh my goodness me,
This is so much harder than it seems to be,
So sing me a song,
Sing me a better one than what I got

Never miss the sun until it snows,
Never miss a good thing ‘til it goes
How about from now on let me know
Give me one more change to tell you so
Look at my heart grow,
I think I should let you know
Maybe we could try a second go

Chorus
Open your heart to me I am coming home,
And now everything’s clear to me, and I am sorry
That it’s taken so long for me but now I’m on my way
I’m coming home to let you know love

Oh the night is dark and oh so long
All the big big crowds move me along,
I hope that someday you’ll say to me,
It’s not too late for us to be.
Look at me I grow,
And everyday I want you so,
I need you to try a second go

Don’t stop me now (x2)

Monday morning I wake up in a city that I love,
Heavens high above and I’m just sitting,
Lexington and Lafayette, New York’s Broadway queen,
Stealer of the scene and I’m addicted

Chorus
Come and take a change make a real romance,
Come and meet the band baby take my hand
Dance dance with me
Come and take a chance make a real romance,
Cone and meet the band baby take my hand
Dance dance with me
Oh oh oh

Downtown noise seeps in my ears, if fills me up inside,
Time is on my side and I am drifting
People come and people go, wonder what do they know,
Faces all aglow, it’s oh so pretty

X Geronimo

I’m not a CEO, like Geronimo.
I take the bus tonight
I got no hero, noone I know
I will work al night
Noone sees me, noone needs me, I am on my own.
There’s nobody that I can talk to,
On this road I walk through
Ho can I catch a falling star,
How can I get to where you are.

Chorus
How can I catch, how can I catch, how can I catch,
How can I catch a star (x2)
Catch a star (x2)

No silver spoon, I had no honeymoon,
He left me long ago,
God knows I tried, to save my pride
I just could not make it alright.
Gotta keep on going onwards,
Keep on going forward,
Keep on going on and on.
Don’t think what they’ve got
I won’t think what I’m not
How can I catch a falling star,
How can I get to where you are.

X Rocky Road to Dublin



X Rocky Road to Dublin

In the merry month of May, from me home I started
Left the girls of Tuam nearly brokenhearted
Saluted father dear, kissed me darlin’ mother
Drank a pint of beer, my grief and tears to smother
Then off to reap the corn and leave where I was born
Cut a stout blackthorn to banish ghosts and goblin’s
A brand new pair of brogues I rattled o’er the bogs
Frightened all the dogs on the rocky road to Dublin

Chorus
One, two, three, four, five
Hunt the hare and turn her down the rocky road
And all the way to Dublin, whack-fol-la-de-da
In Mullingar that night, I rested, limbs so weary
Started by daylight, next mornin’ bright and airy
Took a drop of the pure to keep me heart from sinking
That’s the paddy’s cure whenever he’s on for drinkin’
To see the lassies smile laughing all the while
At me curious style, ‘twould set your heart a-bubblin’
Asked if was I hired, wages I required
‘Till I was almost tired of the rocky road to Dublin

In Dublin next arrived, I thought it such a pity
To be so soon deprived a view of that fine city
When then I took a stroll all among the quality
Bundle it was stole all in a neat locality
Something crossed my mind when I looked behind
No bundle could I find upon my stick a wobblin’
Enquiring for the rogue, they said me Connaught brogue
Wasn’t much in vogue on the rocky road to Dublin

From there I got away, me spirits never failin’
I landed on the quay, just as the ship was sailin’
The Captain at me roared, said there’s no room Paddy
When I jumped aboard a cabin found for Paddy
Well down among the pigs, they played some funny rigs
Danced some hearty jigs, oh the water ‘round me bubblin’
When off at Holyhead, I wished myself was dead
Or better far instead on the rocky road to Dublin

The boys of Liverpool, when we safely landed
I called myself a fool, I could no longer stand it
My blood began to boil, temper I was losin’
Poor Old Erin’s Isle they began abusin’
Hooray me soul, says I, me Shillelagh I let fly
Some Galway boys were nigh they saw I was a hobblin’
With a loud hurray, they joined in the affray
And we quickly cleared the way for the rocky road to Dublin

X Sweet Dublin Bay



X Sweet Dublin Bay

They sailed away in a gallant barque,
Roy Neal and his fair young bride
They had ventured all on that bounding ark
That danced o’er the silvery tide
But his heart was young, and his spirit light
As he dashed her tears away
As they watched the shore recede from sight
Of his own sweet Dublin Bay

They sailed three days and the storm arose
And the lightning flashed the deep,
And the thunder broke the short repose
Of the weary sea boy’s sleep
Roy Neal, he clasped his weeping bride
As he kissed her tears away
“Oh, love, ‘twas fate” aloud she cried,
“When we left sweet Dublin Bay!”

On the crowded deck of the periled ship
Some stood in their mute despair
And some more calm with the holy lip,
Sought the God of the storm in prayer
“She has struck a rock,” the seamen cried
In their breath of wild dismay
And the ship went down with the fair young bride
That sailed from Dublin Bay

X The West’s Awake



X The West’s Awake

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
Her lake and plain smile fair and free
Mid rocks their guardian chivalry
Sing oh, let man learn liberty
From crashing winds and lashing sea

That chainless wave and lovely land, freedom and nationhood demand
Be sure the great God never planned, for slumbering 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 glories trace

For often in O’Connors Van, to triumph dashed each Connacht clan
And fleet as deer the Normans ran, through Corr Sliabh 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, when Connacht lies in slumber 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 to death for Erin’s sake

X Let Mr. Maguire Sit Down



X Let Mr. Maguire Sit Down

Oh me name it is Maguire and I’ll quickly tell to you
Of a pretty girl that I admire named Katie Donoghue
She was fair and fat and forty and believe me when I say,
Everytime I go a courting her I can hear her mammy say (mammy say)

Johnny get up from the fire get up and give the man a seat
Don’t you see it’s Mr. Maguire and he’s courting your sister Kate
Sure you know very well he owns a farm, a wee bit out of town
Would ya get up outta there and be takin’ the air
And let Mr. Maguire sit down

Oh the first time that I met her was at a dance at Tarmagee
And I asked her very kindly would she dance a step with me
She wanted to know if I’d see her home and with her have some tae
Ah but as soon as I go inside the door I can hear her mammy say (mammy say)

Johnny get up from the fire get up and give the man a seat
Don’t you see it’s Mr. Maguire and he’s courting your sister Kate
Sure you know very well he owns a farm, a wee bit out of town
Would ya get up outta there and be takin’ the air
And let Mr. Maguire sit down

Ah but now that we are married, sure her mother’s changed her mind
Just because I spent the legacy her father left behind
She hasn’t got the decency to bid me the time of day
Ah but as soon as I come in at the door I can hear the ould one say (ould one say)

Johnny pull up to the fire pull up you’re sittin’ in a draught
Don’t you see it’s ould Maguire and he nearly drives me daft
Sure I don’t know what gets into him for he’s always on the tear
Ah would ya sit where you are and never you dare
To give ould Maguire the chair

X Handsome Johnny Flynn

I’ve a nice slated house and a cow or two at grass
I’ve a fenced garden running by the door
I’ve a shelter for the hens and a stable for the ass
Now what can a girl want more

But I don’t know, maybe so
And a spinster she’s easy and she’s free
Well I’ve lots to look after and I’m livin’ all alone
And there’s no one lookin’ after me

Me father often tells me I should go and have a try
To get a man that owns a bit of land
And I know the way he says it sure there’s someone in his eye
And me mother has the whole thing planned

But I don’t know, maybe so
And t’would mollify them greatly to agree
But it’s handsome Johnny Flynn, and it’s him I want to win
Though he never throws an eye at me

Now there’s a little man who is worth his weight in gold
And that’s a decent dowry don’t you see
And I mean to go and ask him just as soon as I get bold
If he’ll come and have an eye to me

But I don’t know will I go
For I’d love to be sittin’ on his knee
And I’d sing like a thrush on a hawthorn bush
When he comes and makes an eye at me

Of all the money that e’er I’ve spent,
I spent it in good company
And all the harm that e’er I’ve done,
Alas it was to none but me
And all I’ve done, for want of wit,
To memory now I can recall
So fill to me the Parting Glass
Goodnight and joy be with you all

Of all the comrades that e’er I’ve had,
Are sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e’er I’ve had
Would wish me one more day to stay
But since it falls, unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I’ll gently rise and I’ll softly call
Goodnight and joy be with you all
Goodnight and joy be with you all

And she’s ready for the game, off her head and pretending here today
That she’s waving to the stars
Ah… like the queen of England, ah... like the Taj Mahal
Ah… she cannot wait to get out to the city bars
So this is what she says

Chorus
Let me go, let me go out
Come on Daddy let me go out
I am not afraid of the night
Come on Daddy let me go out

Daddy works all day, got no mammy ‘cause she ran away again
Cowboy kid and she’s wearing her high heels, all alone in her room
Ah... like the garden on Eden, ah... she has Estella’s eyes
Ah... everytime she looks up at the starry skies
So this is what she says

Let me go, let me go out
Come on Daddy let me go out
I am not afraid of the night
Come on Daddy let me go out
Let me grow, let me grow up
Come on Daddy, let me grow up
I am not afraid of the night
Come on Daddy let me grow up

There’s got to be a little more to me, I’m gonna go and see and watch the cars roll by me
A million miles away the trees are green all day, I’m gonna go and blow the boys all away

In the village of Kilgory, there’s a maiden young and fair
Her eyes shine like diamonds, she has long and golden hair
The horseman he comes riding, riding up to her father’s gates
On a pure-white stallion, he comes at the strike of eight

Chorus
I have come to court your daughter, Mary of the golden hair
I’ve gold and I have silver, I have goods beyond compare
I’ll buy her silks and satin and a gold ring for her hand
She shall have a mansion, she’ll have servants to command

I don’t want your gold and silver, I don’t want your house and land
I’m going with a soldier, I have promised him my hand
But the father spoke up sharply: You will do as I command,
You’ll get married on a Sunday and you’ll wear that wedding band

In a while I’ll try and smile
And I’ll open up the door and no one will ever know
What’s deep inside of my mind
No one can see me like this
No one can know me like this
No one can fool me, like this like this

And it’s only 8 am

Won’t make it to the end, to the end

X Summerfly



X Summerfly

In another younger day I could dream the time away
In the universe inside my room
And the world was really mine from june to september
And if it wasn’t really so I was lucky not to know
And I was lucky not to wonder why
'cause a pure and golden high is all that I remember

A summer fly was buzzin’ every night
When I was young
In the gentle world my childlike senses knew
And the world was just my cousin
And the wind was just the tongue
In the voice my lonely moments listened to

And I look at me today all the dreams have gone away
And I’m where I never thought I’d be
Seein’ things I never thought I’d see happen to me
And I lay awake at night till the darkness goes to light
Hearin' voices callin’ out my name
Dronin' over and again the same message to me

Cryin’ who’s your partner, who’s your darlin’, who’s your baby now
Who wakes up at night to pull you in
It don't matter, you just make her lonely anyhow
Don’t know why you even try to win

All around my hat,
I will wear the green willow
All around my hat,
For a twelvemonth and a day
And if anyone should ask me the reason why I’m wearing it,
It’s all for my true love,
Who is far, far away

Fare thee well, cold winter
And fare thee well, cold frost
Nothing have I gained,
But my own true love I’ve lost
I’ll sing and I’ll be merry
When occasion I do see,
He’s a false, deluding young man,
Let him go, farewell he, and…

A fine diamond ring, but he

Of a far better thing!

X Whiskey on a Sunday

He sits at the corner of Begger’s Bush
Astride of an old packing crate
And the dolls at the end of the plank were dancing
As he crooned with a smile on his face:

Chorus
La da da...
Come day, go day
Wish in me heart it was Sunday
Drinking buttermilk all the week,
And a whiskey on a Sunday

His tired old hands worked the wooden beam
As the puppets they danced up and down
A far better show than you ever will see
In the fanciest theatre in town

Chorus

In 1902 old Seth Davie died
His song it was heard no more
The three dancing dolls in the dustbin were thrown
And the plank went to mend a back door

On some stormy night if you’re passing that way
With the wind blowing up from the sea
You can still hear the song of old Seth Davie
As he croons to his dancing dolls three

X John Barleycorn



X John Barleycorn

There were three kings into the east,
Three kings both great and high,
And they have sworn a solemn oath
John Barleycorn should die.
They took a plough and ploughed him down,
Put clods upon his head,
And they hae sworn a solemn oath
John Barleycorn was dead.

But the cheerful Spring came kindly on,
And showers began to fall;
John Barleycorn got up again,
And sore surprised them all.
The sultry suns of Summer came,
And he grew thick and strong;
His head well armed with pointed spears,
That no one should him wrong.

They’ve taken a weapon, long and sharp,
And cut him by the knee;
Then tied him fast upon a cart,
Like a rogue for forgery
They laid him down upon his back,
And cudgelled him full sore;
They hung him up before the storm,
And turned him o'er and o'er.

John Barleycorn was a hero bold,
Of noble enterprise;
For if you do but taste his blood,
'Twill make your courage rise.
'Twill make a man forget his woe;
'Twill heighten all his joy;
'Twill make the widow's heart to sing,
John Barleycorn must die.

X The Foggy Dew



X The Foggy Dew

As down the glen one Easter morn to a city fair rode I
There armed lines of marching men in squadrons passed me by
No pipe did hum, no battle drum did sound its loud tattoo
But the Angelus Bell o'er the Liffey's swell rang out through the Foggy Dew

Right proudly high over Dublin Town they hung out the flag of war
'Twas better to die 'neath an Irish sky than at Suvla or Sud-El-Bar
And from the plains of Royal Meath strong men came hurrying through
While Britannia's huns, with their long range guns sailed in through the Foggy Dew

'Twas England bade the wild geese go, that “small nations might be free”;
Their lonely graves are by Suvla's waves or the fringe of the great North Sea.
Oh, had they died by Pearse's side or fought with Cathal Brugha
Their names will be seen where the Fenians sleep, 'neath the shroud of the Foggy Dew.

Ahh...
And the world did gaze, in deep amaze, at those fearless men, but few,
Who bore the fight that freedom's light might shine through the Foggy Dew

X Deep Sheephaven Bay



X Deep Sheephaven Bay

Away behind the Rosses stills, the sun sinks down to rest
The little birds in their shady nooks, sleep on their peaceful nests
On such an eve through lonesome groves, where lovers chanced to stray
While the evening sun reflecting back, on deep Sheephaven Bay.

That night there stood a maiden fair, upon the peaceful shore
Her cheeks they bloomed like the purple heather, on lovely Gania Mor
While gently flowing o’er her neck, her yellow ringlets lay
Like the evening sun reflecting back, on deep Sheephaven Bay.

He took her hand into his own, and to his breast he drew
Saying darling dear, it’s nice to know, there’s one heart ever true
And with these words they parted, on the Autumn evening day
To toil amongst the fishermen, on deep Sheephaven Bay

And from the north the wind came forth and long and strong it blew,
The waves that didn’t move all day to a milky darkness grew
The fishermen, their hearts were sad, for their loved ones far away
And their crafts were wildly tossed about, on deep Sheephaven Bay

A father mourns a stalwart lad, A mother mourns her son
A sister and a brother too, their old companion is gone
But there is one in secret still, who weeps the same as they
Her sweethearts bones are bleaching white, on deep Sheephaven bay
Her sweethearts bones are bleaching white, on deep Sheephaven bay.

X Home to Mayo

In Belmullet Town where I first saw the light,
where the waves of the sea roar by day and by night
I’ve travelled long miles on land and on sea
But a journey I’ll make and soon that will be

Chorus
Home to Mayo, Home to Mayo
Someone is waiting for me , I know
In the firelight her smile will be bright
And my hearts in a cottage in Co. Mayo.

I would love to go back to old Ireland once more
To roam ‘round the scenes as in days of yore
Then surely next summer, please God I will go
Back to my home in the Co. Mayo

Chorus

I’ve see famous cities and bright dazzling skies
And the girls I saw there were a sight for the eyes
But I’d leave them all and never more roam
For her eyes like the stars are calling me home

Chorus

With a God save you kindly as old friends stop by
And lovely Croagh Patrick so big in the sky
Sure that’s where my heart is longing to go
To my dear little home in the Co. Mayo

X Lonely Boy

An old man sits down, he has a secret,
A desire to be someone new before he will die,
There is a lady, she has it so hard,
But she keeps dreaming that she will one day be a big star
And I don't know why we're losing it all
Running around we’re messing it up

Why can't you tell me what's gonna happen
If we go on going along, alone and on our own
Whatever happened to the fairytales
We let the monsters win
We push and we shove, forget who we love
To get up and get in
And I don't know why we're losing it all
Running around we're messing it up

Chorus
Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh
Lonely Boy, lying on the street
with no one there to hold your hand
Lonely Boy, living at your feet
'cause we don’t want to understand

Don't want to know you, just control you
I don't have the time to give you a smile
Or even talk to you
I only want whatever's good for me,
I don't care about you ya see
We're caught up in lies, we're fake and disguised
And never satisfied
And I don't know why we're losing it all
Running around we're messing it up

Chorus (x2)
An old man sits down, he has a secret,
A desire to be someone new before he will die,
And I don't know why we’re losing it all

‘Cause you are not alone
Don’t run and hide
You’re not on your own

Words will never bring you down

It hurts you for a little while
And then it goes

I see your shame
But you’re not the one to blame
Calling you names
You’re never part of the fun and games
You’re cold and you are frozen
And today you just feel broken
But don’t you ever give up

Oh you can smile, ooh ooh.... come on and smile (to end)

Get down on your knees be all apology’s

So I’m running away

But she’s all strung out, she’s so cold
Her face is looking much too old

Written on the faces of the people that I meet
With shoulders bent down in defeat

And don’t ever look around
I feel I’m drowning because I can’t figure it out

‘Cause nothing ever’s gonna change
It all stays the same, nobody even seems to care
Coming going fever’s growing
It’s such a shame
‘Cause today it’s the strong who survive oh yeh yeh
Today it’s the strong who survive.

Behind the stars, shining silver
There are so many scars
But all I see is just how powerful we think we are
Driving around in our very big cars
So get out of my way it’s time for payday today
You sit there laughing in you designer suits
Go hide your slimey boots
‘Cause I can figure it out
I think I must be losing my mind yeh

You don’t show up and I don’t know where you went again
If I could just get you out of my mind
If you would just walk away and make it easier for me to decide to leave you,
Leave all the lies far behind

Goodbye to all my friends, I’m going away
Time for a new star ,leaving today
Don’t have much to say, it’s better that way,
Cause i don’t know how long I’ll be away
Why does it always rain,
Why is it always cold round here

Chorus
‘Cause nothing ever happens for me here
And I am getting older every year

So what do you say when you wake up today,
And everyday after is always the same,
People you meet when you walk on the street ,
Know what you’ve eaten and know where you sleep,
Ifind it so very hard to breathe,
So I need to leave

Chorus
‘Cause nothing ever happens for me here,
And I am getting older every year
‘Cause nothing everchanges for me here,
If I go on like this I’ll disappear

It wasn’t that I didn’t want you with me,
But leaving is something that I couldn’t see,
You ever wanting or longing to do,
So I say goodbye now, I’m leaving you

‘Cause nothing ever changes for me here,

Everyday the same thing in every way
I keep saying that I’m gonna change
Yeah I will do better

I’ll push a little harder so make room for me
Don’t hold me back, don’t argue don’t patronise me
‘Cause no one and nobody fights for me
‘Cause no one and nobody cares for me

Listen to the rain failing down
Day after day the same sound
Yeah, so I creep along just singing my songs
And doing my best to get on
Sometimes it’s hard when people laugh at me
And somedays I can’t even get through
But oh I’ve gotta big dream

X Say Hello



X Say Hello

Nobody knows me and I feel so lonely
Every day I’m low like the ground
I take my train in to work
Stand in line and fake another smile for a while
I wanna scream, it makes me feel alive
I wanna shout, make you all look around
Let it out and finally find the right time
To tell me you’re mine

Wear the right lipstick
Not make a mistake but you don’t even notice me
I walk by your desk but I fail at the test
Of trying to get you to see me
What’ll I do to try to get to know you
What’ll I say if only you adore me
And all I care is that I get reaction
I need some action

Chorus
Why can’t you see what you’re doing to me
I can’t believe that you’re too blind to see
I’m so lonely and I need company
So come on and say hello

Some say you’re too tall and some say I’m too tall
And some don’t say nothing at all
Life is confusing, there’s far too much choosing
And using and loosing it all
I wanna scream, it makes me feel alive
I wanna shout, make you all look around
Let it out and finally find the right time
To tell me you’re mine

Chorus

Give the boy a smile and get the pretty side out
Then he won’t escape and you’ll have him for life

Nobody knows me and I feel so lonely
Every day I’m low like the ground

X Ghost Riders in the Sky

An old cowpoke went ridin' out
one dark and windy day
Upon a ridge he rested
as he went along his way
When all at once a mighty herd
of red eyed cows he saw
A plowin' through the ragged skies
and up a cloudy draw

Their brands were still on fire
and their hooves were made of steel
Their horns were black and shiny
and their hot breath he could feel
A bolt of fear shot through him
as they thundered through the sky
He saw the riders coming hard
and he heard their mournful cry

Yippie I Ay, Yippie I Oh
Ghost riders in the sky

Their faces gaunt their eyes were blurred
Their shirts were soaked with sweat
He’s ridin' hard to catch that herd
but he 'aint caught 'em yet
He’s got to ride forever
that range up in the sky
On horses snorting fire
they ride on hear their cry

Yippie I Ay, Yippie I Oh
Ghost riders in the sky

As the riders 'loped on by him
he heard one call his name
If you want to save your soul
from hell a riding on our range...
Then cowboy change your ways today
or with us you will ride on
Tryin' to catch the devil's herd
across these mournful skies

Yippie I Ay, Yippie I Oh

X When We Were Young

I have walked along this path only to end up here,
only to be right here,
I have talked too many times, empty and idle words,
empty and idle words
Thinking of you and what you would say,
If you could be here beside me,
Wonder if you are still dreaming like you used to,
I’m missing you, I never told you,
Life without you is so much colder,
Wonder if you will ever come home looking for me.

When we were young, we were so young
Now you are gone and it seems so long
When you swore that you would marry me when I was 21.

Tell me why things turned around
‘cause everything’s different now, the world is so different now.
Remember, we used to laugh,
We believed in fairytales, we believed in fairytales
But yesterdays gone, I have lost you,
Gotta move on, I am older, lost and alone,
I am on a lonely road
And the old man, he sits beside me,
Singing a song that reminds me of better times that we’ll never get to go back to.

When we were young, we were so young
Now you are gone and it seems so long
When you swore that you would marry me when I was 21.

When we were young, we were so young
Now you are gone and it seems so long
When you swore that you would marry me when I was 21.

Cause I don't sip that sweet champagne.
I'd rather drink beer all night

So sing me a song that I don't know,

Yeah,yeah,yeah.

Now Doc at the bar is a good friend of mine,
He plays the guitar and he's been living here a
Couple of years now
But getting tired of just trying to get his music played.
'Cause he can't afford to pay the D.J.'s,
So his songs will never get played.

So sing me a song that I don't know,
'Cause I am sick of the radio
And I don't like the tunes they play
They're the same I hear them everyday
And I've really had enough
Of Simpson,Spears and Duff,

Just one more smile under these lights and then I’ll drive
Back to my beginnings the start of my real life,
Lightening crashes dreams get smashed
I took a chance but fate had other things planned.
Take one last look, I think, I thought but don’t ask why
Made up and dressed is just my best but it’s a lie
Time is telling me to stop,
Time is cheating me,
Well it’s time for me to go on back home to real life.

I say goodbye to all the good friends I have met,
And all those beautiful people who soon forget.
These silent nights are keeping me cold,
That’s me over there in the corner with no show
I raise my glass and drink a toast before I leave,
Goodnight, adieu I wish the best to all of you.
Time is telling me to stop,
Time is cheating me,
Well it’s time for me to go on back home to real life.

Let’s have another round it’s hard to leave this town,
Go to a party but I could not hang around

X City of Chicago

To the City of Chicago,
As the evening shadows fall,
There are people dreaming,
Of the hills of Donegal.

Eighteen forty seven,
Was the year it all began,
Deadly Pains of hunger,
Drove a million from the land,
They journeyed not for glory,
Their motive wasn't greed,
Just a voyage of survival,
Accross the stormy sea.

To the City of Chicago,
As the evening shadows fall,
There are people dreaming,
Of the hills of Donegal.

Some of them knew fortune,
And some them knew fame,
More of them knew hardship,
And died upon the plain,
They spread throughout the nation,
Rode the railroad cars,
Brought their songs and music,
To ease their lonely hearts.

To the City of Chicago,
As the evening shadows fall,
There are people dreaming,
Of the hills of Donegal.

Don oíche úd i mBeithil go dtáinig an Bhréithir slán;
Tá gríosghrua ar spéarthaibh 's an talamh 'na chlúdach bán;
Féach Íosagán sa chléibhín, 's an Mhaighdean 'Á dhiúl le grá

Ar leacain lom an tsléibhe go nglacann na haoirí scóth
Nuair in oscailt ghil na spéire tá teachtaire Dé ar fáil;
Céad glóire anois don Athair i bhFlaitheasaibh thuas go hard!
Is feasta fós ar talamh d'fhearaibh dea-mhéin' siocháin!

I sing of a night in Bethlehem
A night as bright as dawn
I sing of that night in Bethlehem
The night the Word was born

The skies are glowing gaily
The earth in white is dressed
See Jesus in the cradle
Drink deep in His mother's breast

And there on a lonely hillside
The shepherds bow down in fear
When the heavens open brightly
And God's message rings out so clear

Glory now to the Father
In all the heavens high
And peace to His friends on earth below
Is all the angels cry

Don oíche úd i mBeithil

X Rose of Allandale



X Rose of Allandale

The moon was bright, the night was clear
No breeze came over the sea
When Mary left her highland home
And wandered forth with me
The flowers be-decked the mountainside
And fragrance filled the vale
But by far the sweetest flower there
Was the Rose of Allendale

Oh the Rose of Allendale
Sweet Rose of Allendale
By far the sweetest flower there
Was the Rose of Allendale

Where e'er I wandered east or west
Though fate began to lour
A solace still was she to me
In sorrow's lonely hour
When tempests lashed our lonely barque
And rent her quivering sail
One maiden's form withstood the storm
'Twas the Rose of Allendale

Oh sweet Rose of Allendale
Sweet Rose of Allendale
One maiden's form withstood the storm
'Twas the Rose of Allendale

And when my fever'd lips were parched
On Afric's burning sands
She whispered hopes of happiness
And tales of distant lands
My life has been a wilderness
Unblessed by fortune's wheel
Had fate not linked my love to hers
The Rose of Allendale

Oh sweet Rose of Allendale
Sweet Rose of Allendale
Had fate not linked my love to hers
The Rose of Allendale

Come
a little closer
Look at my face
It is changing

Come
a little nearer
Look at my eyes
They are aging

You turn your back another time
You tell me that I’m wasting life
You don’t know me at all

Don’t look me up and look me down
Don’t push me further under ground
You’re a liar
Baby, you’re a liar

Swim
a little deeper
Get under my skin
Feel my heart beat (oh yeah)

Sit (oh sit)
A little longer
Let me tell you my name
Don’t you walk away

I’ve taken all that I can take
I know I’ve made a few mistakes
Don’t judge me by them

Don’t look me up and look me down
Don’t push me further under ground
‘Cause you’re a liar
Baby, you’re a liar

You’re a liar
Baby, you’re a liar

Come (oh come)
A little closer
Look at my face
It is changing

You turn your back another time
You tell me that I’m wasting life
You don’t know me at all

Don’t look me up and look me down
Don’t push me further under ground

Lost out on the way forever I’m falling down
To this cold stony ground
Gotta get out of this place
Gotta try and save my face
Gotta get away from here

Whatever it is
Taste salt from the sea
I’m wasted and waiting still for this life to begin
Gotta get out of this place
Gotta try and save my face
Gotta get away from here
Gotta better place to be

I want to give you
Some advice
‘Cause what I’m gonna say
Is not so nice
How I’ve been
Since you walked out on me
I think it is time
You should know

Did you think about me
When you went and left me
Did you forget to see
The way you left me
Never will I
Fade away
I’m here to tell you
I mean what I say

How dare you tell me
I’m insecure
You messed it all up
Inside my head
Waiting to hear words
You’d never say
I wasted my time
Why did I stay
So long

Did you think about me
When you went and left me
Did you forget to see
The way you left me
Never will I
Fade away
I’m here to tell you
I mean what I say
Yeah

All the damage is done
With things said and done
Now you turn and
Run away

Did you think about me
(did you think about me)
When you went and left me
Did you forget to see
(did you forget to see)
The way you left me
Never will I
Fade away

X Not Over You

Yeah, I guess I was doing fine
‘till you came back here
Yeah, I know I was doing ok
Then I saw you
We keep on meeting up and I look away
I see you with that other girl everyday
I’ve been told that the loneliness
Will ease with time
It’s kind of hard
‘cause I’m used to having you
By my side
I go out every night
And sit at the bars
I’m drinking to get drunk
To forget who you are

Not over you, not over you
Not over you
Wish that I was over you

Coffee is cold
And I don’t know how I can
Work at all
So why did I even bother
Getting dressed at all
I’ll take a few more pills
To help me get through all of this
Then I will take a trip
And loose this lonely view

Not over you, not over you
Not over you
Wish that I was over you

Fire in my heart
And I told you
From the start
That I loved you

Not over you, not over you
Not over you
Wish that I was over you

Too bad, too bad

Turn your back

Too late, too late

X Don't You Cry

January’s coldness can mean nothing to me
With the bright stars shining down
Strangers might look away but I have you here
Whenever I fall down
Bright colors come out when spring is born
Like the times you invite me in
See, I used to be wary of you
Now I wonder what took me so long
In trusting you

Don’t you cry
I will never say goodbye
And I want you to hold me tight
For always and tomorrow
Don’t you hide
I will never let you down
Close your eyes
Eyes

And life is much better
Than what’s gone behind
What’s mine is now yours
And what is yours is mine
Seasons change like scenery
But with you near I’m ready
For whatever will be

Don’t you cry
I will never say goodbye
And I want you to hold me tight
For always and tomorrow
Don’t you hide
I will never let you down
Close your eyes
I am now with you
You

See I know deep inside me somewhere
I’ll always have you
Beside me
Close your eyes (close your eyes)

Outside there's a box car waiting
Outside the family store
Out by the fire breathing
Outside we wait 'til face turns blue
I know the nervous walking
I know the dirty beard hangs
Out by the box car waiting
Take me away to nowhere plains
There is a wait so long (so long, so long)
You’ll never wait so long

Here comes your man
Here comes your man
Here comes your man

Big shake on the box car moving
Big shake to the land that's falling down
Is a wind makes a palm stop blowing
A big, big stone fall and break my crown
There is a wait so long (so long, so long)
You'll never wait so long

Here comes your man
Here comes your man
Here comes your man

Was mistaken by your eyes

And I will stand my ground
Until you tell me

So confusing treating

Two once were adoring, now they don’t care
Two hating each other over there
Two not caring love’s gone off somewhere

Two screaming at each other inside here
Two victims of anger both unseen
Two shouting at each other inside here
Two caught up in a madness get out of here

So cold, so cold, so cold
Nothing can ever warm me
So cold, so cold, so cold
Nothing can ever warm me

You say I’ve changed, but I reply I’m just the same
Look out the window, I hear that door slam out
I kick it all under the table, it’s the same
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, nowhere nowhere

So cold, so cold, so cold
Nothing can ever warm me
So cold, so cold, so cold, so cold

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

So cold, so cold, so cold

X Good Tradition

There's a good tradition of love and hate staying by the fireside
There's a good tradition of love and hate staying by the fireside

And though the rain may fall
Your father's calling you
You still feel safe inside
And though your ma's too proud
Your brother's ignoring you
You still feel safe inside

Oh, was this solo?
Was this yesterday?
Was this true for you?
'Cause while all the rest have taken time
This didn't do a lot for you

And the corners laced with memories
Tell you how it used to be
Your mother smiles, the children play, and all the bad things happening miles away

Well, strong feelings never bother you
You hold your head up while the rest of us try to

Oh, call the stations
Call the people
We all want to know
'Cause while all the rest have taken time
You don't wanna know

Well, there's a good tradition of love and hate staying by the fireside
There's a good tradition of love and hate staying by the fireside

And though the rain may fall
Your father's calling you
You still feel safe inside
And though your ma's too proud
Your brother's ignoring you
You still feel safe inside

Oh, was this solo?
Was this yesterday?
Was this true for you?
'Cos of all the choices you have made
This didn't do a lot for you

Gotta get up and go
ÂCause IÂm here on my own
With no time to be lonely
Far across the sea
And nobody noticing me
But I know, yeah I know
Gotta have to let go
ÂCause IÂm here on my own
But I miss my home
Yeah, I miss going home

Take me over to sea back to Dublin
Take me over the sea to Dublin
Take me quick as can be
To Dublin town

Sisters and love
With the man who lives above
But I donÂt like him
I donÂt trust him
And I really hope sheÂs lusting
ÂCause she needs to get out
And meet nice Irish man
She needs nice Irish man

Take me over to sea back to Dublin
Take me over the sea to Dublin
Take me quick as can be
To Dublin town

Love hanging out
Meet my friends for a pint
Or two or three or four
Or maybe more

So, take me over to sea back to Dublin
Take me over the sea to Dublin
Take me quick as can be

Into it deeply tonight
So watch me run when will I ever stop it
Where do I go now,
I’m over my head
And though I may seem alright

I can never seem to say or do
Be at ease with you
Stay with only you
But I always end up back with you
I go home with you
And last with only you.

You’re not my hero making me smile
You're not my hero everything’s fine
I wouldn’t want to change a thing
‘Cause every time we end up the same

Here’s not to happy endings,
Here’s not to today it seems,
So distant now but if you call my name out
Well I’ll come running,

And though I may seem alright

But I always end up back with you
I go home with you

You’re not my hero making me smile
You're not my hero everything’s fine
I wouldn’t want to change a thing

Watch me run and if you call my name out,
Will I come running

Although I may seem alright.

I can never seem to say or do
Be at ease with you
Stay with only you
But I always end up back with you

And last with only you.

Don’t wanna dull and simple life
I lie on my pillow every night
And dream of faraway delights
Where I can go live and spend my nights,
But I’d go anywhere to be a star,
And I’d do anything for a fancy car.
Neighbors call in tell me things I hate to think,
Then they drink up some tea and off they go,
Sipping wine get it into my mind,
Have to get away

‘Cause everything will be alright
And everybody’s here tonight,
If this world makes you crazy
Brighten up it’ll be alright
If this world calls you lazy,
Lighten up it’ll be alright

I stare at the man driving in his van,
He’s tired and depressed fighting too much stress,
He looks like he needs to get out and relax,
Lie in the chair well it’s the summertime but
He’s got bills to pay that won’t go away
His wife spends today or she’ll runaway

But everything will be alright
And everybody’s here tonight,
If this world makes you crazy
Brighten up it’ll be alright
If this world calls you lazy,
Lighten up it’ll be alright

It’s alright, everything will be alright
It’s alright, everything will be alright right,

‘Cause everything will be alright
And everybody’s here tonight,
If this world makes you crazy
Brighten up it’ll be alright
If this world calls you lazy,
Lighten up it’ll be alright

Finished, done my apprenticeship
Sold out, lost all innocence
When you said laud that I (hey)

Had no future doing what I did
Held no promise believing as I did (ah)

You took my confidence
Stole all my sweetness

But thank you, you’ve really done me a favor
And got me to face hard facts
I thank you, you’ve really done me a favor
Made me wake up.
(My thanks to you, you’ve really done me a favor etc)

Like hell, all the stories that you would tell at my expense
But I know now, laughing last is louder
Well haven’t you noticed that (hey)
I’m no longer walking behind you and I am
No longer just thinking beside you

You took my confidence
Stole all my sweetness

But thank you, you’ve really done me a favor
And got me to face hard facts
I thank you, you’ve really done me a favor
Made me wake up, you made me wake up
(My thanks to you, you’ve really done me a favor etc)

You took me for a ride
Played with me for a while
Mr. Jekyll and Hyde on the inside
That’s all you were to me
And all that you said to me was
I could never be strong and I could
Never belong and I could never be anything at all
But there’s something you forgot
I learned from what you taught

Thank you……..thank you………….

Thank you (my thanks to you)
You’ve really done me a favor
And got me to face hard facts
But thank you
You’ve really done me a favor
You made me wake up
You made me wake up

X Unsolved Mystery



X Unsolved Mystery

The lazy times of yesterday are gone
Friends turn their faces from me, they carry on
Together under perfect blue skies
Why do they all have perfect blue eyes
Every time I walk into the morning rain
I look around me everything appears the same
And they tell me I need to prove myself
They force opinions all the time

But I keep trying to tell myself
That I will succeed
Yeah and I keep trying to tell myself
That I will make it one day
And I deep trying to tell myself
It’s an unsolved mystery

They say, stop living your life in your old make believe work
And stop setting your sights on for elusive dreams
By myself I can see everything more clearly
And on my own, I hold my secret thoughts more dearly
Yeah, but between the thoughts of you and me
Well now I know that
The end will justify the means to show
Don’t try and tell me, I need those points and degrees
Don’t force opinions all the time

But I keep trying to tell myself
That I will succeed
Yeah and I keep trying to tell myself
That I will make it one day
And I keep trying to tell myself
It’s an unsolved mystery

Don’t stand on my dreams
Don’t patronize me, stop criticizing
Don’t shatter illusions
Don’t patronize me, stop criticizing
Yeah…. do do do

Do… do… do

But I keep trying to tell myself
That I will succeed
Yeah and I keep trying to tell myself
That I will make it one day and
I keep trying to tell myself
It’s an unsolved mystery

Do… do… do

X I Found Out



X I Found Out

Never before did I know
Someone so kind, he was more than a friend of mine
Silently sharing the same things
But love to anger, I’ve seen our friendship collapsing when
I found out, that he had let me go
Oh I found out

Looking from my window to the streets below
Evening clouds starting to show and ‘m so alone
Nothing can make me forget
When I gave everything hoping he felt the same when
I found out
Oh I found out, that he had let me go
Oh oh I found out
It happened that way

Now that you’re far away, I’m her to stay (repeated)
Now I know you’re far away from me and I’m here to stay,
But I know you’ll not come back
You’re leaving me alone, now you’re leaving me all alone,
I know you’ll not come back, and I’m here to stay
Hey hey hey

Never before did I know
(Never before)
Someone so kind

I Found Out

X Little Affair



X Little Affair

Here again, today is the same as any day
Still it rains
Missing you near me now
Wishing you were with me now
No one helping me out
There’s no one here helping me
Out of my heart, of my life
Of my everything you are gone
But all of this just seems so wrong

And this is what I was, nothing more to you
Thank some precious little affair
Not much is working out for me
I am shocked and I am tired
Of pretending that it’s ok
Everything’s ok

It’s clear to me now, things are not as I thought
They would be, mistakenly
See I went and believed in what you said
I was so easily led
I didn’t listen to the voice in my head
Now I now the truth instead and you’re
Out of my heart, of my life
Of my everything you are gone
But all of this just seems so wrong

And this is what I was, nothing more to you
Thank some precious little affair
Not much is working out for me
I am shocked and I am tired
Of pretending that it’s ok
Pretending that it’s ok
Everything’s ok…………..

Ah……..

Out of my heart, of my life
Of my everything you are gone
But all of this is wrong wrong wrong

And this is what I was, nothing more to you
Thank some precious little affair
Not much is working out for me
I am shocked and I am tired
Of pretending that it’s ok
Pretending that it’s ok
Everything’s ok…………..

X Listen And Learn

I can’t paint that smile, on my face all the while
But if I could you know I would,
Really would try to paint it
And I refuse to say
Too many secrets I’ve held safe
But if I could you know I would
Really would try to tell you

So don’t ask me what I think of you
Don’t tell me what I should or what I should not do
Yeah yeah, I will learn to listen too
As only few do

I don’t like denying
I go red when I’m lying
It’s something I would love to hide
If I could only find a way
And I can’t lock away my mistakes made today
They’re something I would love to hide
If only I could find a way

So don’t ask me what I think of you
Don’t tell me what I should or what I should not do
Yeah yeah, I will learn to listen too
As only few do

If I listen
Then I learn

So don’t ask me what I think of you
Don’t tell me what I should or what I should not do
Yeah yeah, I will learn to listen too, I will
As only few do……

X Road To Nowhere



X Road To Nowhere

I’ve seen this girl here before
I used to be like her older sister
And I am trying not to notice
The change from a child to a stranger
That answers to her name

She’s come a long long way down
On this road to nowhere
She can’t wait (wait) to grow up

And everybody comes here too
And this place stinks of beer
She doesn’t care she’s all surrounded
And I am trying not to notice that she can’t even see me
And guess who is that she’s walking out with

It’s a long long way down
On this road to nowhere
Can’t wait (wait) to grow up
Hope she’ll make it
Hope she’ll make it somehow

Up all night and so easily led
Another day has gone and nothing seems right
Still trying, hard to say goodbye to the child
She will never be, never will be, she will
Never be again

It’s along long way down
On this road to nowhere
Can’t wait wait to grow up
On this road to nowhere
Wait to grow up
(Make-up wearing thin my dear)
Road to nowhere making …….. ahh……..
(Make-up wearing thin my dear)

Hope she’ll make it, hope she’ll make it
Hope she’ll make it, hope she’ll make it
Somehow

X Against The Wall



X Against The Wall

I was 9 years old, and did as I was told
Careful not to upset anyone,
Now I reached 16, life got interesting,
Unanswerable to anyone
Now I am older, still wondering what it is that
I’m going become
‘Cause when I’m tired and grey
There’s one thing I won’t say
It’s funny how it never worked out
Isn’t it funny how it never worked out

So don’t give up on your dreams
Cant’ break apart inside
Try harder, don’t forget what they mean, yeah……
And with your back up against the wall,
Don’t be afraid, go let it all come out,
Just don’t give up on me

Scared of acting free, they try and bury me
With long faces of conformity
To anyone who’ll see, it’s not affecting and
I am overcoming all their gravity
See I stand prouder, and I won’t settle for
Anything second best
My craving calling me, anxious and eagerly
Isn’t it better to have failed than not tried
Isn’t it better to have failed than not tried at all

So don’t give up on your dreams
Cant’ break apart inside
Try harder, don’t forget what they mean, yeah……
And with your back up against the wall,
Don’t be afraid, go let it all come out,
Just don’t give up on me

Had my fill of being broke……..
Had my fill of feeling choked but
I was born with inner will to survive
See I was born with inner will to survive

So don’t give up on your dreams
Cant’ break apart inside
Try harder, don’t forget what they mean, yeah……
And with your back up against the wall,
Don’t be afraid, go let it all come out,
Just don’t give up on me
Don’t, don’t, don’t…
Da, da, da

X Selfish Stupid



X Selfish Stupid

Underneath blue skies and red sun
We all live silent, dangerous and cold
Touched by nothing anymore
Another earthquake somewhere out there
We turn our heads and raise our hands in defense
It’s nothing to do with me
And we call ourselves human

Selfish stupid, why are we all selfish stupid

We share the same minds as children
Then grow up loving scandalous lies
Too busy with our own gains
Our sanity’s gone astray
Humanity has walked away

Selfish stupid, why are we all selfish stupid
Selfish stupid, why are we all
Hey don’t bury me

Why should I
Why should I
Why should I

Why should I care about you
When all you do is trample on me
All of your skin-deep beauty just hides the rot
That lies beneath your skin

Our sanity is gone astray
Humanity has walked away

Selfish stupid, why are we all selfish stupid
Selfish stupid, why are we all selfish stupid
Selfish stupid, why are we all selfish stupid
Selfish stupid, why are we all selfish stupid

Selfish Stupid

X Fading Life



X Fading Life

Suddenly out of the picture
Funnily feel like I don’t belong anymore
Think I’d like to go some place
Where I can be just by myself
Grown so used to keeping it all inside
And every day’s a little more I must get through
Too scared to rock the boat
And still too needing of a hand to hold
Ahhhhhhhhh…………….

Sitting in a corner full of excuses
And fearing solitude I’ll keep on making stupid mistakes
A girl rushes past me, her friend has kept her late
Can I remember being late too

Do you think that I am living a lie
Or will I be all right in a while
Do you think that I should kiss him goodbye
Or turn away and fake a sweet smile
Smile………

And given half a chance, then I would hide
But feeling unsure I’ll end up crying over
Lost innocence
Well I don’t wanna waste another year
Of me and my fading life

Do you think that I am living a lie
Or will I be all right in a while
Do you think that I should kiss him goodbye
Or turn away and fake a sweet smile
Just look at what I’ve done, what I’ve come through
And what I could’ve been
So how can I start now, not knowing what or where to go
Who’s gonna show me round, does anyone know for sure
Well I guess I have to start soon somewhere, anywhere

Ahhhhhhhh……….

Do you think that I am living a lie
Or will I be all right in a while
Do you think that I should kiss him goodbye
Or turn away and fake a sweet smile
Just look at what I’ve done, what I’ve come through
And what I could’ve been
So how can I start now, not knowing what or where to go
Who’s gonna show me round, does anyone know for sure
Well I guess I have to start soon somewhere, anywhere
Anywhere, do do do do do…

X Not My Problem



X Not My Problem

So he wants my autograph and I can only laugh at him
Someone who never sang me a lullaby, when I needed one sung
Go after the beautiful ones and all the popular people
That’s right up his alleyway, that’s all that he wants
Not that I’m strong enough, I realize I rise above him
And I’ve every intention of staying from him
He does not interest me
And all these games are bringing us down
These stupid games are only bringing us down and

This is this is not, this is this is not
This is not my problem
This is this is not, this is this is not
This is not my problem

How come my friends all ask me what I think
Of this and what I think of that
I hold my tongue because I’m sick of
Laughing at all their unfunny jokes
Yes I am sick of laughing at all their unfunny jokes
These games (ah) are only bringing us down
These stupid games are only brining us down and

This is this is not, this is this is not
This is not my problem
This is this is not, this is this is not
This is not my problem

I’m weary of pretending to be something
That I’m not and never could be
All I know is I weary of it, I weary of it
I’m weary of it

This is not my problem, this is not my problem

This is this is not, this is this is not
This is not my problem
This is this is not, this is this is not
This is not my problem

X Fools



X Fools

Don’t ask me why I’m here, it’s only morning
I’m still underneath the sheets yawning now, for now
Here lies my clothes and shoes, I’m untidy
I raise and rub my eyes, it’s never easy for me, a malady

(I’m just the same as anybody else)

When a fool cries out, no one learns and we stay the same
When a fool cries out, no one learns and we stay the same
Fools don’t ask why, we just follow

I take a second look around me
I see an angry man, he’s building up inside
His eyes grow wild
The mother of the unknown orphan
Complains that she’s not to blame
For leaving him all alone
He’s on his own again

When a fool cries out, no one learns and we stay the same
When a fool cries out, no one learns and we stay the same
Fools don’t ask why, we just follow

Meanwhile just the same goes on
Meanwhile just this life moves on
Meanwhile just the same goes on
Meanwhile just this life moves on

Two whispered words untrue, hidden meanings

When a fool cries out, no one learns and we stay the same
When a fool cries out, no one learns and we stay the same
He cries, she cries, cries
He cries, she cries, cries

He cries, she cries, we cry
I cry, you cry, we cry

X Cry Baby



X Cry Baby

Just 8 years old
A friendless child who never knew
Could understand or figure out why
I was all alone
Surrounded by my so-called friends
Who laughed at me behind my back

Hey……..
Hey…….

A perfect mess
Always lying face down, on the ground
Left and ignored
A well-known joke
Was how I never wore the latest dress and
My clothes were always torn

Get away from me, you don’t understand
Get away from me

How can I be strong
And how can I stand up to all the hurt that’s been done
It’s a little strange
And I feel so very sad that we can do this to ourselves
But I’m a shadow in the darkness
A captive of circumstance
And nothing else matters
I just want to be heard

Get away from me, you don’t understand
Get away from me
Leave me along, I’m begging you
Just play with me and
Get away from me, you don’t understand
Get away from me, ahhhhh
Leave me along, I’m begging you
Just play with me
And we could be friends

Cry Baby

X Happy

Strange how my dreary world has been changing
Now that you are so far away
And everyone keeps asking if I am feeling ok
Now that you’re no longer with me and I say
All of my days I have wasted with you so color blind
Now I find there’s so much more blue in the sky
The color has come back to my life

I don’t care what you say, because I don’t need you anyway
And I realize I can go this far now I’m free

Happy not being with you
I know now I never loved you (I never loved you)
So happy not being with you
I know now I never loved you (I never loved you)

Felt like I just died and have gone to heaven
The moment I got free from you
No explaining if I’m out past eleven, the moment
I got free from you
And now it is time for me to swim all of the seven seas
And take a good look
And I think about the little things you used to do
And breathe a silent sight of relief ah…….

I don’t care what you say, because I don’t need you anyway
And I realize I can go this far now I’m free

Happy not being with you
‘Cause I know now (yes I know) that
I never loved you (I never loved you) so
Happy not being with you
‘Cause I know now (yes I know)
I never loved you (I never loved you)

Will not stay here, pretend I am crying over you
Will not be here, quietly drying
Will not stay here, pretend I’m missing you
I’ll hold my head up and I will laugh even louder

Happy not being with you
‘Cause I know now (yes I know) that
I never loved you (I never loved you) so
Happy not being with you
‘Cause I know now (yes I know)
I never loved you (I never loved you)

I’m happy happy not being with you
I’m happy happy not being with you

Happy
