Anywhere Is
English

Ahh… Ahh… Ahh… Ah!

I walk the maze of moments,
But everywhere I turn to
Begins a new beginning
But never finds a finish.
I walk to the horizon
And there I find another.
It all seems so surprising
And then I find that I know…

You go there, you’re gone forever.
I go there, I’ll lose my way.
If (we) stay here, we’re not together.
Anywhere is…

The Moon upon the ocean
Is swept around in motion
But without ever knowing
The reason for its flowing.
In motion on the ocean,
The Moon still keeps on moving.
The waves still keep on waving,
And I still keep on going…

You go there, you’re gone forever.
I go there, I’ll lose my way.
If (we) stay here, we’re not together.
Anywhere is…

I wonder if the stars sign
The life that is to be mine,
And would they let their light shine
Enough for me to follow?
I look up to the Heavens,
But Night has clouded over;
No spark of constellation,
No Vela, no Orion…

Vocals

The shells upon the warm sands
Have taken from their own lands
The echo of their story,
But all I hear are low sounds.
As pillow words are weaving,
And willow waves are leaving,
But should I be believing
That I am only dreaming?

You go there, you’re gone forever.
I go there, I’ll lose my way.
If (we) stay here, we’re not together.
Anywhere is…

To leave the thread of all time
And let it make a dark line
In hopes that I can still find
The way back to the moment.
I took the turn and turned to,
Begin a new beginning,
Still looking for the Answer;
I cannot find a finish.
It’s either this or that way.
It’s one way or the other.
It should be one direction.
It could be on reflection.
The turn I have just taken,
The turn that I was making:
I might be just beginning,
I might be near the End.

Fada an lá, go sámh.
Fada an oích’, gan ghruaim.
Aoibneas, áthas, grá,

China Roses
English

Who can tell me if we have Heaven?
Who can say the way it should be?
Moonlight Holly, the Sappho Comet,
Angel’s tears below a tree.

You talk of the break of morning
As you view the new aurora.
Cloud in crimson, the key of Heaven,
One love carved in acajou.

ooh… ooh… ooh… ooh… ooh… ooh…

One told me of China Roses,
One a Thousand nights and One night.
Earth’s last picture, the end of evening;
Hue of indigo and blue.

Ahh…

A new Moon leads me to
Woods of dreams, and I follow.
A new world waits for me;
My dream, my way…

I know that if I have Heaven
There is nothing to desire.
Rain and river, a world of wonder,
May be Paradise to me.

Vocals


Hope Has A Place
English

One look at love, and you may see
It weaves a web over mystery.
All raveled threads can rend apart
For hope has a place in the lover’s heart.
Hope has a place in a lover’s heart.

Whispering world, a sigh of sighs,
The ebb and the flow of the ocean tides,
One breath, one word may end or may start
A hope in a place of the lover’s heart.
Hope has a place in a lover’s heart.

Look to love; you may dream,
And if it should leave, then give it wings.
But if such a love is meant to be;
Hope is home, and the heart is free.

Under the Heavens, we journey far
On roads of life; we’re the wanderers.
So let love rise, so let love depart.
Let hope have a place in the lover’s heart.
Hope has a place in a lover’s heart.

Look to love; you may dream,
And if it should leave, then give it wings.
But if such a love is meant to be;
Hope is home, and the heart is free.

Vocals

Hope is home, and the heart is free.


Once You Had Gold
English

Vocals

Once you had gold,
Once you had silver,
Then came the rains
Out of the blue.
Ever and always,
Always and ever,
Time gave both darkness and dreams to you.

Ahh…

Now you can see
Spring becomes Autumn.
Leaves become gold
Falling from view.
Ever and always,
Always and ever,
No one can promise a dream come true; Time gave both darkness and dreams to you.

Vocals

What is the dark?
Shadows around you.
Why not take heart
In the new day?
Ever and always,
Always and ever,
No one can promise a dream for you;
Time gave both darkness and dreams to you.

Vocals

Seré una ola.
Mmm…
Seré la luna.

He sido todo, soy yo.

Vocals

Yo; el verano.

Yo; el ebano.

On My Way Home
English

I have been given
One moment from Heaven
As I am walking
Surrounded by Night.
Stars high above me;
Make a wish under moonlight.

On my way home I remember only good days.
On my way home I remember all the best days.
I’m on my way home; I can remember every new day.

Ahh…

I move in silence
With each step taken.
Snow falling ‘round me
Like angels in flight.
Far in the distance
Is my wish under moonlight.

On my way home I remember only good days. Ahh…
On my way home I remember all the best days. Ahh…
I’m on my way home; I can remember every new day. Ahh…

Instrumental & Vocals

On my way home I remember only good days. Ahh…
