Lyrics

Ho 
Hey
Ho 
Hey

I been trying to do it right
(Hey) I been living a lonely life
(Ho) I been sleepin' here instead
(Hey) I been sleepin' in my bed
(Ho) I been sleepin' in my bed (hey ho)

so show me family
(Hey) all the blood that I will bleed
(Ho) I don't know where I belong
(Hey) I don't know where I went wrong
(Ho) but I can write a song (hey)

I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart
I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweet' (ho)

Hey (come on now)
Ho
Hey

I don't think you're right for him
(Hey) think of what it might have been if we
(Ho) took a bus to chinatown
(Hey) I'd be standin' on canal (ho) and Bowery (hey)
(Ho) she'd be standin' next to me (hey)

I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart
I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart

Love we, need it now
Let's hope, for some
'Cause oh, we're bleedin' out

I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart
I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweet'(ho)
Hey

Lyrics

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Breeze driftin' on by
You know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good
I'm feeling good

Fish in the sea
You know how I feel
River running free
You know how I feel
Blossom on a tree
You know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun, you know what I mean, don't you know
Butterflies all havin' fun, you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done, that's what I mean
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me
For me

Stars when you shine
You know how I feel
Scent of the pine
You know how I feel
Oh, freedom is mine
And I know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
It's a new life
For me

And I'm feeling good
I'm feeling good
I'm feeling so good
I feel so good

When I was six years old I broke my leg
I was running from my brother and his friends
And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down
I was younger then, take me back to when I

Found my heart and broke it here
Made friends and lost them through the years
And I've not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I've grown
But I can't wait to go home

I'm on my way
Driving at ninety down those country lanes
Singing to "Tiny Dancer"
And I miss the way you make me feel, and it's real
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes
Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends
Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don't reckon that I did it right
But I was younger then, take me back to when

We found weekend jobs, when we got paid
We'd buy cheap spirits and drink them straight
Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we've grown
But I can't wait to go home

I'm on my way
Driving at ninety down those country lanes
Singing to "Tiny Dancer"
And I miss the way you make me feel, and it's real
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill

One friend left to sell clothes
One works down by the coast
One had two kids but lives alone
One's brother overdosed
One's already on his second wife
One's just barely getting by
But these people raised me and I can't wait to go home

And I'm on my way, I still remember
This old country lanes
When we did not know the answers
And I miss the way you make me feel, it's real
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill

My love (my love)
My lover, lover, lover
I'm in paradise whenever I'm with you
My mind (my mind)
My m-m-m-m-mind well, it's a paradise whenever I'm with you
Ride on (ride on)
I will ride on down the road
I will find you, I will hold you, I'll be there
It's long (how long?)
It's a mighty long road but
I'll find you, I will hold you and I'll be there

I know you heard it from those other boys
But this time it's real
It's something that I feel and
I know you heard it from those other boys
But this time it's real
It's something that I feel and

If it feels like paradise running through your bloody veins
You know it's love heading your way
If it feels like paradise running through your bloody veins
You know it's love heading your way

My time (my time)
My t-t-t-t-time well, it's a never ending helter-skelter
We'll be out whatever the weather
My heart (my heart)
My boom-boom heart
It's a beat and its a thumping
And I'm alive

I know you heard it from those other boys
But this time it's real
It's something that I feel and
I know you heard it from those other boys
But this time it's real
It's something that I feel and

If it feels like paradise running through your bloody veins
You know it's love heading your way
If it feels like paradise running through your bloody veins
You know it's love heading your way

Paradise, hold on hold on
Meet me there, hold on hold on
Paradise, hold on hold on
Meet me there, hold on hold on
Paradise, hold on hold on
Meet me there, hold on hold on
Paradise, hold on hold on
Meet me there, hold on hold on
Paradise, hold on hold on
Meet me there, hold on hold on
Paradise, hold on hold on
Meet me there, hold on hold on

If it feels like paradise running through your bloody..

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
You cunt, I'm not a queer
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
And each and every highway
And yet, much more than this
I did it my way
Regrets. I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention.
But dig, what I have to do
I'll see it through with no devotion
Of that, take care and just
Be careful along the highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way
There were times,
I´m sure you knew
When there was but but
Fucking else to do
But through it all,
When there was doubt
I shot it up or kicked it out
I faced the wall, and the wall
And did it my way.
Knocked out in bed last night
I´ve had my fill, my share of looting
And now, the tears subside
I find it all so amusing 
To think, I killed a cat
And may I say, oh no, not their way
But no, oh no, not me
I did it my way
For what is a brat,
What has he got
When he finds out that he cannot
Say the things he truly thinks
But only the words,
Not what he feels
The record shows,
I´ve got no clothes
And did it my way

Lyrics

I was born by the river in a little tent
Oh and just like the river I've been running ev'r since
It's been a long time, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

It's been too hard living, but I'm afraid to die
'Cause I don't know what's up there, beyond the sky
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

I go to the movie and I go downtown
Somebody keep tellin' me don't hang around
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

Then I go to my brother
And I say brother help me please
But he winds up knockin' me
Back down on my knees, oh

There have been times that I thought I couldn't last for long
But now I think I'm able to carry on
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

Well I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
And she broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

But baby I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
You know, I used to live alone before I knew ya
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well there was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show that to me do ya
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Maybe there's a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya

And it's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Lyrics
Babe, there's something tragic about you
Something so magic about you
Don't you agree?

Babe, there's something lonesome about you
Something so wholesome about you
Get closer to me

No tight side, no rolling eyes, no irony
No 'who cares', no vacant stares, no time for me

Honey you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits prison, chivalry fell on it's sword
Innocence died screaming, honey ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door

Babe, there's something wretched about this
Something so precious about this
Oh what a sin

To the strand a picnic plan for you and me
A rope in hand for your other man to hang from a tree

Honey you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on it's sword
Innocents died screaming, honey ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to sit outside your door

Honey you're familiar like my mirror years ago
Idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on it's sword
Innocence died screaming, honey ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden just to hide outside your door

Lyrics

To run 
To fall 
To pretend we were never there at all 
To live 
To love 
To find out we were made of stronger stuff 

And (ooh) 
Do you want me? 
When you're lonely 
Do you see me? 
Ooh 
Won't you call me 
When you're lonely 
And you're looking like you miss someone 

Now we're flying to the stars 
Just to see how small we are 
Just to know your little dreams 
Ain't as scary as they seem 
All at once the camera stops 
All those little lights turn off 
You're still stuck here in my thoughts 
No-one asked to fall in love 

To laugh 
To smile 
To realise that I've been staring 
More than a little while 
To hold 
Your hand 
Kiss you on the cheek 
These bodies tangled for a whole damn week 

And (ooh) 
Do you want me? 
When you're lonely 
Do you see me? 
Ooh 
Won't you call me 
When you're lonely 
And you're looking like you miss someone 

Now we're flying to the stars 
Just to see how small we are 
Just to know your little dreams 
Ain't as scary as they seem 
All at once the camera stops 
All those little lights turn off 
You're still stuck here in my thoughts 
No-one asked to fall in love 

I know it's so cold 
But she's my Summer 
I know that I'll be warm 
Dreaming of her 
I know it's so cold 
But she's my Summer 
I know that I'll be warm 
Dreaming of her 
Dreaming of her 

Now we're flying to the stars 
Just to see how small we are 
Just to know your little dreams 
Ain't as scary as they seem 
All at once the camera stops 
All those little lights turn off 
You're still stuck here in my thoughts 
No-one asked to fall in love  see less

Lyrics

I don't like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand, I'll walk with you my dear

The stairs creak as I sleep,
It's keeping me awake
It's the house telling you to close your eyes

And some days I can't even trust myself
It's killing me to see you this way

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey! Hey! Hey!

There's an old voice in my head
That's holding me back
Well tell her that I miss our little talks

Soon it will all be over, and buried with our past
We used to play outside when we were young
And full of life and full of love

Some days I don't know if I am wrong or right.
Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

You're gone, gone, gone away,
I watched you disappear
All that's left is a ghost of you
Now we're torn, torn, torn apart,
there's nothing we can do,
Just let me go, we'll meet again soon

Now wait, wait, wait for me, please hang around
I'll see you when I fall asleep

Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
this ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Lyrics

The tears have all been shed now
We've said our last good-byes
His soul's been blessed and he's laid to rest
And it's now I feel alone

He was more than just a father
A teacher my best friend
He can still be heard in the tunes we shared
When we play them on our own

I never will forget him for he made me what I am
Though he may be gone memory lingers on
And I miss him ... The old man

As a boy he'd take me walkin'
By mountian field and stream
And he showed me things not known to kings
And secret between him and me

Like the colors of the pheasant
As he rises in the dawn
And how to fish and make a wish
Beside the holly tree

I never will forget him for he made me what I am
Though he may be gone memory lingers on
And I miss him ... The Old Man

Song Facts:

Who wrote the song Grace ?
It was written by Sean And Frank O'Meara in 1985.

Who Sang It ?
Jim McCann, who often played with The Dubliners had the most success with it,
It was also sang by The Wolfe Tones, John McDermott, Barleycorn, and Anthony Kearns to name but a few singers.

Who Is The Song About ?
It was written about Joseph Plunket and Grace Gifford who married hours before Joseph was executed for his part in the 1916 rising in Dublin

Grace
Tom Clarke was a source of inspiration in the Post Office.
There was Joseph Plunket, pale and weak having come directlyfrom the hospital where he had just undergone an operation.Joseph was shot seated, as he was too ill to stand for the firing squad.
He struggled to be with his comrades on that eventful morning. Margaret Skinnider said he looked like death and he met his death a few days later, not a natural one but a murderous one by firing squad. Jo was married to Grace Gifford at midnight just a few hours before his execution in the little church beside Richmond Barracks.

She was Thomas MacDonagh's sister-in-law.
The song tells the sad story of their wedding and has tobe one of the saddest songs of all time. Joseph Mary Plunkett had tuberculosis and was hospitalisedfor that prior to Easter, the phrase, "the blood upon the rose" comes from one of Joseph's poems -- he was a Catholic mystic and poet. Grace Gifford was protestant and her parents did not much approve of the relationship.

Lyrics

As we gather in the chapel here in old Kilmainham Jail 
I think about these past few weeks, oh will they say we've failed 
From our schooldays they have told us we must yearn for liberty 
Yet all I want in this dark place is to have you here with me. 

CHORUS
Oh Grace j..
