Leiski Sapnuot

When evening gets tired, and on the shoulder of mountains
The sunset starts snoozing - you let me to dream
When sweet dream is poured into a tulip cups (glass cups)
The wind sights - let me to dream.
 
When stars like chandelier on the branches of apple trees
It's shining through the night - you let me to dream
When the moonlight sounds - cobwebs of Kanklės*
Touching the windowsill- let me to dream.
 
You let me to dream
Because I'm very afraid to awake
And in the glittering dawn to lose you.x2
 
To continue our dream through a long fairy tale
In the wakeless night - you let me to dream
Feel the depth of the dream
And drink this dream to the full chest-
You let me to dream.
***chorus***
 

Can't Smile Without You

You know, I can't smile without you
I can't smile without you
I can't laugh and I can't sleep
I don't even talk to people I meet
 
And I feel sad when you're sad
I feel glad when you're glad
And you must know what I'm going through
I just can't smile without you
 
You came along, just like a song
You brightened my day
Who'd believe, you were a part of a dream
That only seemed light years away
 
And you know, I can't smile without you
I can't smile without you
And you must know what I'm going through
I just can't smile without you
 
Some people say, the happiness wave
Is something that's hard to find
Into the new, leaving the old behind me
 
And I feel sad when you're sad
I feel glad when you're glad
And you must know what I'm going through
I just can't smile without you
 
Into the new, leaving the old behind me
 
And I feel sad when you're sad
I feel glad when you're glad
And you must know what I'm going through
I just can't smile without you
 

Quand tout s'enfuit

Quand tout s’enfuit
Quand tout bascule dans l’oubli
Quand il n’y a rien
Qu’un froid soleil au déclin
 
Quand l’hiver noie ses pleures
Dans mes nuits qui se meurent
 
Toi seul, tu es là
À graver dans mon cœur ton image
Comme dans un bouquin
Qui n’a dans ces pages qu’une page
 
Et je sais pourtant qu’un de ces jours
Quand on n’aura jamais le temps pour notre amour
 
Quand tout s’en va
Il y aura toi, y aura moi
Il y aura des jours, des tous jours pour t’aimer
Oh, mon amour
 
Et moi, je suis là
Tout près de toi, de tout ce qui te ressemble
Mais moi, je serai là
Pour finir ensemble ce long voyage
 
Et t’aimer, et t’aimer d’avantage
À tout jamais, à tout jamais
 
Et je sais pourtant qu’un de ces jours
Quand on n’aura jamais le temps pour notre amour
 

Let it Go

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen.
A kingdom of isolation,
and it looks like I'm the Queen
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn't keep it in;
Heaven knows I've tried
 
Don't let them in,
don't let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don't feel,
don't let them know
Well now they know
 
Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
 
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door
I don't care
what they're going to say
Let the storm rage on.
The cold never bothered me anyway
 
It's funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all
 
It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me,
I'm free!
 
Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You'll never see me cry
Here I stand
And here I'll stay
Let the storm rage on
 
My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I'm never going back, the past is in the past
 
Let it go, let it go
And I'll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone
Here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm rage on
 
The cold never bothered me anyway.
 

Life Is For Living

You and me, our life is drifting along
Watching the world as it's singing its song
High above, someone is calling to me
Life is for living and living is free
 
You to me, are like the sun in the sky
See how you fly, you have wings of your own
You and me, our love will last without end
Ride with the wind, won't you follow me home?
 
Turn around, and see the circles we spin
And we're taking our chances on where we begin
Up above, the rain is falling on me
Life is for living and living is free
 
You to me, are like the sun in the sky
See how you fly, you have wings of your own
You and me, our love will last without end
Ride with the wind, won't you follow me home?
 
Taking up time, trying to write a line
Till the break of day
Given a sign, can you make it rhyme
Tell me what to say?
Making it fine, can you ease my mind
Help me drift away?
 
Turn around, and see the circles we spin
Taking our chances on where we begin
Up above, the rain is falling on me
Life is for living and living is free
 
You to me, are like the sun in the sky
See how you fly, you have wings of your own
You and me, our love will last without end
Ride with the wind, won't you follow me home?
 

Paris Is Burning

I write to give word the war is over
Send my cinders home to mother
They gave me a medal for my valor
Leaden trumpets spit the soot of power
 
They say 'I'm on your side when nobody is, cause nobody is
Come sit right here and sleep while I slip poison in your ear'
 
We are waiting on a telegram to give us news of the fall
I am sorry to report dear Paris is burning after all
We have taken to the streets in open rejoice revolting
We are dancing a black waltz fair Paris is burning after all
 
Oh no
 
Enclosed in this letter there's a picture
Black and white for your refrigerator
Sticks and stones have made me smarter
It's words that cut me under my armor
 
They say 'I'm on your side when nobody is, cause nobody is
Come sit right here and sleep while I slip poison in your ear'
 
We are waiting on a telegram to give us news of the fall
I am sorry to report dear Paris is burning after all
We have taken to the streets in open rejoice revolting
We are dancing a black waltz fair Paris is burning after all
 
Oh no, ooh
 
Dance poor people dance and drown
Dance fair Paris to the ground
Dance poor people dance and drown
Dance fair Paris ashes now

Beast of Fire

Thou whom they call the desolate one
Thy face we need not see
For thy presence is yet so clear (in every murder and crime)
Thou who shall grant us the fatal wind
And bestow us the light that is not
Opposer beyond the veil of the void.
 
Ascend, oh beast of fire!
Torch now this world so tired
Thy will is our desire
My heart is thine.
 
On parchment made from a stillborn child
Drawn in blood is the seal of thine
My prayers are aimed at the highest of might
To take on the world and withdraw the false light
You kill and you rape the illusions of clay
You break the cycle of life
 
Ascend, oh beast of fire!
Torch now this world so tired
Thy will is our desire
My heart is thine.
 
Unbearable sight
Enslavement the plague that has conquered us all
For the first of crimes
Withdrawal the sentence which all shall abide
Those phosphorous eyes
Forging the furnace of the ending of time
Accuser divine
Our swords in thy name now world shall divide!
 
Lands ablaze, writhing in vain
Choirs sing, welcome his reign
 
'Foes behold the wrath of our lord, shrouding fast, mowing all cords'
 
Oh, free me from their stillborn god
Who rapes our minds and steels our thoughts
Descend now with the brightest of light
And set afire this world plagued by plight
 
Ascend, oh beast of fire!
Torch now this world so tired
Thy will is our desire
My heart is thine.
 

Sweet Talk

You can turn the sound off on the clouds
With your sweet talk
Sweet talk
You can stop the rain from falling down
With your sweet talk
Ooh, sweet talk
You can change your frown into a smile
With your sweet talk, sweet talk
Maybe a woman from a child with your sweet talk, sweet
I let your sweet talk
 
When you're lying to my heart
I make you leave me to stay
You talk so sweet
I lost control of my advantage
Talking at the shore
If you really let them sweet talk
Ooh, can you sweet talk
 
You're really lying to my lie
Sweet talk
Ooh, ooh, can you sweet talk
You can change the worst into the best
With your sweet talk, sweet talk
You don’t give my heart a chance to rest
With your sweet talk,
Ooh, sweet talk
You can stop a heart from feeling pain
With your sweet talk, with your sweet talk
You played all those silly games
With your sweet talk, ooh, sweet talk
 
So now you're gonna leave
And sweet talk someone new
You try to be so sweet,
Ooh, cant believe I let you sweet talk me this way
 
Sweet talk
Ooh, ooh, sweet talk
Sweet talk, can't you sweet talk
Doo doo doo doo, sweet talk
Can you sweet talk
Can't you sweet talk, doo doo
 
I let you sweet talk your way
Right into my heart
I let you leave me astray
You talk so sweet
 
I lost control of my senses
How can I be sure
If you really let them
You wanna sweet talk your way
Right on out the door
 
I’ve heard nothing now
I know I can't believe I fell for all those streak of lies
I come to realize your sweet talk
 
Ooh, can you sweet talk
Ooh, ooh, can you sweet talk, ooh, ooh, ooh
Sweet talk, can you sweet talk
Yeah, yeah, sweet talk
Sweet talk, can you sweet talk
Sweet talk, can you sweet talk
 

De semaine en semaine

[Verse 1]
Un truc qui bouge à la radio
Un fond d'essence sous le capot
Ce qu'il faut pour me sentir chaud
Ce qui frappe le plus pour dix euros
Va savoir où tout ça mène
La chute pourrait se faire soudaine
Et de semaine en semaine
Une boucle qui tourne dans le soundsystem
 
[Chorus]
Et de semaine en semaine
Cette boucle qui tourne à perdre haleine
Et de semaine en semaine
Je serre les dents sur le BPM
Et de semaine en semaine
Cette boucle qui tourne à perdre haleine
Et de semaine en semaine
Un coup de volant et je quitte la scène
 
[Verse 2]
Ce truc qui tourne à la radio
La nuit défile en stéréo
La percute monte au cerveau
Peut-être que soudain j'en fais trop
Va savoir ce qui me freine
D'accélérer vers tout ce que j'aime
Et de semaine en semaine
L'aiguille décide et moi je traîne
 
[Chorus]
Et de semaine en semaine
Cette boucle qui tourne à perdre haleine
Et de semaine en semaine
Je serre les dents sur le BPM
Et de semaine en semaine
Cette boucle qui tourne à perdre haleine
Et de semaine en semaine
Un coup de volant et je quitte la scène
 

Somewhere Out There

Fv: Somewhere out there,
beneath the pale moonlight,
someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight.
 
Ty: Somewhere out there,
someone's saying a prayer,
that we'll find one another in that big somewhere out there.
 
Ty: And even though I know how very far apart we are,
it helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star.
 
Fv: And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby,
it helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky.
 
Together: Somewhere out there,
if love can see us through,
then we'll be together, somewhere out there,
out where dreams come true.
 

Work

Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, turn it up (Rewind!)
 
[Verse 1]
The dance train is coming back again
Extravaganza, you should run and tell a friend
Kings and queens are posted at the bar
Buckin' down, it's time to tip it off
 
[Pre-Hook]
Walk that walk (walk)
Show me how you move it
Can you walk that talk (talk)
Put some snap into it

The spotlight is on you, you better
 
[Hook: 2x]
Work work work work

[Verse 2]
You better shake that thang like a donkey
And go hard for it bitch, you better work
You better swing from a paw like a monkey
And go hard for it, you better work
Cause big girls get down on the flo'
And make it jiggle, jiggle, jiggle you ain't know
Ain't no shame, it's the name of game
Now everybody down to the flo', here we go
We got the rhythm of the be-be-beat
We got the rhythm of the beat
We got the rhythm of the hands
Let's get the rhythm of the feet
Jump in, jump out (4x)
 
[Pre-Hook]
 
[Hook: 2x]
 
[Intro/Bridge]

And if you want the danceflo, you tell the DJ, 'Back it up!'
This your jam, this your joy, 'Hey Mr. DJ back it up!'
This that new Ciara, go holla at the DJ: Back it up!
Now! drop down! everybody in a club drop down
Jiggle that, jiggle that
Till it drop, till it drop, till it drop
All the way, all the way down to the ground

Me and Ci be on dessert
All the ladies on the flo you better work

Flowers in the Rain

Woke up one morning half asleep
With all my blankets in a heap
And yellow roses scattered all around
The time was still approaching four
I couldn't stand it anymore
Saw marigolds upon my eider down
 
I'm just sitting, watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain
Making the garden grow
I'm just sitting, watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain
Keeping me cool
 
So I lay upon my side
With all the windows open wide
Couldn't pressurise my head from speaking
Hoping not to make a sound
I pushed my bed into the ground
In time to catch the sight that I was seeking
 
I'm just sitting, watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain
Making the garden grow
I'm just sitting, watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain
Keeping me cool
 
If this perfect pleasure has the key
Then this is how it has to be
If my pillow's getting wet
I don't see that it matters much to me
 
I heard the flowers in the breeze
Make conversation with the trees
Relieved to leave reality behind me
With my commitments in a mess
My sleep has gone away depressed
In a world of fantasy you'll find me
 
I'm just sitting, watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain
Making the garden grow
I'm just sitting, watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain
Keeping me cool
 

Mary Hot Lips Arizona

You came into town with your truck and your wardrobe
Your turquoise, your pills and the crew
Your cowboys, your playboys, the studs and the gay boys
Your gals and your hairdresser, too
 
And you rented a small apartment
And everyone settled in
Midst the pillows, the beads and the stereo leads
And the ups and the downs in the gin
 
Oh Mary, oh Mary, the stars of the prairie
Still shine on your high-stepping shoes
But those were the days, Mary, those were the days
When you sidestepped the Hollywood blues
 
When the money ran low, all your friends found excuses
The family soon fell apart
And you learned there's a limit to what you can do
When your purse ain't as big as your heart
 
But still you're blasting off somewhere
On something with somebody new
And nobody knows what he does, where he comes from
Nobody, least of all you
 
Oh Mary, oh Mary, the stars of the prairie
Still shine on your high-stepping shoes
But those were the days, Mary, those were the days
When you sidestepped the Hollywood blues
 

Willie The Wimp

Willie the Wimp was buried today,
They laid him to rest in a special way.
Sent him off in the finest style
That casket-mobile really drove 'em wild
Southside Chicago will think of him often
Talkin' 'bout Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac coffin,
Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac coffin
 
That casket, it looked like a fine Seville
He had a vanity license and a Cadillac grille
Willie was propped up in the driver's seat
He had diamonds on his fingers and a smile sweet
Fine red suit had the whole town talkin'
Talkin' 'bout Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac coffin
Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac coffin
 
Oh, Cadillac to Heaven he was wavin' the banner
He left like he lived, in a lively manner
With a-hundred dollar bills in his fingers tight
He had flowers for wheels and a-flashin' headlights
He been wishin' for wings, no way he was walkin'
Talkin' 'bout Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac coffin
Yeah, Willie the Wimp and his Cadillac coffin
 

The Horizon Has Been Defeated

The horizon has been defeated
by the pirates of the new age
alien casinos
well maybe it's just time to say
things can go bad
and make you want to run away
but as we grow older
the troubles just seems to stay
 
future complications
in the strings between the cans
but no prints can come from fingers
if machines become our hands
and then our feet become the wheels
and then the wheels become the cars
and then the rigs begin to drill
until the drilling goes too far
 
things can go bad
and make you want to run away
but as we grow older
the horizon begins to fade away
 
thingamajigsaw puzzled
anger don't you step too close
because people are lonely and only
animals with fancy shoes
hallelujah zig zag nothing
misery it's on the loose
because people are lonely and only
animals with too many tools
that can build all the junk that we sell
sometimes it makes you want to yell
 
things can go bad
and make you want to run away
but as we grow older
the horizon begins to fade away
 

No One But You

I can see no one but you,
Oh, just you and me,
I can feel no one but you
Oh why can't you see,
What I see..
 
So I'm leaving to my house beside the river,
In the boat I'm crying, blaming you for what is done
It is cold, but it's your lies that make me shiver
I might be drowning, but please come
 
I can see no one but you,
Oh, just you and me,
Oh why can't you see,
What I see..
 

Morning Has Broken

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word
 
Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where His feet pass
 
Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day
 
Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word

Old town

The girl's a fool
She broke the rule
She hurt him hard
This time you will break down
She's lost his trust
And so she must
Now all is lost
The system has broke down
Romance has broke down
 
This boy is crackin' up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crackin' up
This boy has broke down
 
She plays it hard
She plays it tough
But that's enough
The love is over
She's broke his heart and that is rough
But in the end you'll soon recover
The romance is over
 
This boy is crackin' up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crackin' up
This boy has broke down
This boy is crackin' up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crackin' up
This boy has broke down
 
I've been spending my money
In the old town
It's not the same honey
With you not around
I've been spending my time
In the old town
I sure miss you honey
Now you're not around
You're not around
This old town
Ola
 
This boy is crackin' up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crackin' up
This boy has broke down
This boy is crackin' up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crackin' up
This boy has broke down
 

Key to the Highway

I got the key to the highway,
Billed out and bound to go.
I'm gonna leave here running;
Walking is most too slow.
 
I'm going back to the border
Woman, where I'm better known.
You know you haven't done nothing,
Drove a good man away from home.
 
[Live Verse]
When the moon peeks over the mountains
I'll be on my way.
I'm gonna roam this old highway
Until the break of day.
 
Oh give me one, one more kiss mama
Just before I go,
'Cause when I leave this time you know I,
I won't be back no more.
 

Lover's Cross

I guess that it was bound to happen
Was just a matter of time
But now I've come to my decision
And it's a-one of the painful kind
'Cause now it seems that you wanted a martyr
Just a regular guy wouldn't do
But baby, I can't hang upon no lover's cross for you
 
You really gotta hand it to ya
'Cause girl, you really tried
But for every time that we spent laughing
There were two times that I cried
And you were trying to make me your martyr
And that's the one thing I just couldn't do
'Cause baby, I can't hang upon no lover's cross for you
 
'Cause tables are meant for turning
And people are bound to change
And bridges are meant for burning
When the people and memories they join aren't the same
 
Still I hope that you can find another
Who can take what I could not
He'll have to be a super guy
Or maybe a super god
'Cause I never was much of a martyr before
And I ain't bout to start nothing new
And baby, I can't hang upon no lover's cross for you
 
'Cause tables are meant for turning
And people are bound to change
And bridges are meant for burning
When the people and memories they join aren't the same
 
But I hope that you can find another
Who can take what I could not
He'll have to be a super guy
Or maybe a super god
'Cause I never was much of a martyr before
And I ain't bout to start nothing new
And baby, I can't hang upon no lover's cross for you
 

Key to the higway

I got the key to the highway,
Billed out and bound to go.
I'm gonna leave here running;
Walking is most too slow.
 
I'm going back to the border
Woman, where I'm better known.
You know you haven't done nothing,
Drove a good man away from home.
 
[Live Verse]
When the moon peeks over the mountains
I'll be on my way.
I'm gonna roam this old highway
Until the break of day.
 
Oh give me one, one more kiss mama
Just before I go,
'Cause when I leave this time you know I,
I won't be back no more.
 

New World in the Morning

Everybody talks about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning, so they say
I myself don't talk about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning, that's today
 
And I can feel a new tomorrow coming on
And I don't know why I have to make a song
Everybody talks about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning takes so long
 
I met a man who had a dream
He had since he was twenty
I met that man when he was eighty-one
He said: 'Too many folks just stand
And wait until the morning
Don't they know, tomorrow never comes'
 
And he would feel a new tomorrow coming on
And when he'd smile his eyes are twinkled up in thought
Everybody talks about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning never comes
 
And I can feel a new tomorrow coming on
And I don't know why I have to make a song
Everybody talks about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning takes so long
 

(There's) Always Something There To Remind Me

I walk along the city streets
You used to walk along with me
And every step I take recalls
How much in love we used to be!
 
Oh, how can I forget you
When there is always something there to remind me?
Always something there to remind me!
I was born to love you
And I will never be free -
You'll always be a part of me
A-whoa-whoa-whoa
 
When shadows fall
I pass the small cafe
Where we would dance at night
And I can't help
Recalling how it felt
To kiss and hold you tight!
 
Oh, how can I forget you
When there is always something there to remind me?
Always something there to remind me!
I was born to love you
And I will never be free -
You'll always be a part of me
A-whoa-whoa-whoa
Whoa-whoa-oh-ohhh
 
If you should find
You miss the sweet and tender love
We used to share
Just come back to the places
Where we used to go
And I'll be there!
 
Oh, how can I forget you
When there is always something there to remind me?
Always something there to remind me!
I was born to love you
And I will never be free
When there is always something there to remind me!
Always something there to remind me!
Always something there to remind me!
 

The Kerry Recruit

At the age of nineteen, I was digging the land
With me brogues on me feet and me spade in me hand
Well says I to meself, 'What a pity to see
Such a fine Kerry couldn't turf in Tralee.'
 
With your Kerry-I-Ah, fa lal deral lay
Kerry-I-Ah, fa lal deral lay
 
So I buttered me brogues and shook hands with me spade
Dashed off to the fair like a gallant young blade
The sergeant come up says 'Will you enlist?'
'Sure, sergeant,' says I, 'Stick the bob in me fist'
 
Then up comes the captain, and a man of great fame
Straightways he asks me my country and name;
Well, I told you before and tell him again
That me father and mother were two Kerrymen
 
Now the first thing they gave me, they called it a gun
And under the trigger I nesstled me thumb
The gun it spite fire, and vomited smoke
It gave a great leap and me shoulder near broke
 
Now the next place they took me was down to the sea
On board a great warship, bound for the Crimee
Three sticks in the middle, all hung with great sheet
Sure she walked on the water without any feet
 
We reached Balaclava all safe and all sound
And wet tired and weary we lay on the ground
Next morning at daybreak a bugler did call
And served us a breakfast of powder and ball
 
Now we fought them at Alma like wives and her man
But the Rooshians they foiled us along the Redan
While scaling a rampart meself lost an eye
And a great Russian bullet ran away with me thigh
 
Then the surgeon comes up and he soon stops the blood
And he gave me an elligant leg made of wood;
And they gave me a pension of tenpence a day
Contented on shiela I labour half-pay
 
Now that was the story that my grandfather told
As he sat by the fire all withered and old
'Remember,' said he,'that the Irish fight well
But the Russian artillery's hotter than Hell.'
 

Blossom Lady

Once I had a boyfriend
He was so tall and strong
And he knew what I needed
When I was all alone
 
Then he said to me:
'I'll care for you day and night
I'll never forsake you
Yes, I'll stay by your side
 
Don't be afraid, girl
You're the one, the one I love
Don't be afraid, girl
You're the one, the one I love'
He said:
'Cause you're my blossom lady
You're my blossom lady
My blossom lady
My blossom lady
 
You're my blossom lady
My blossom lady
My blossom lady'
 
But one year later
I was as lonely as I was before
I saw my boyfriend
At some other girl's door
 
And there was that hurt again
As on the day we broke away
Then I remembered
What he used to say:
 
'Don't be afraid, girl
You're the one, the one I love
Don't be afraid, girl
You're the one, the one I love'
He said:
'Cause you're my blossom lady
You're my blossom lady
My blossom lady
My blossom lady'
 

All I Know

I can see your face on the wall
I hear your voice and I call
I feel the weight of it all
Can't brace myself for the fall
 
In the silence I hear your fading call
In your eyes I see and feel it all
In my mind I try to let go
It's so hard cause you're all I know
 
You act like there's nothing wrong
You laugh when I call on the phone
Say it's time that I try to move on
That the life that we had is now gone
 
In the silence I hear your fading call
In your eyes I see and feel it all
In my mind I try to let go
It's so hard cause you're all I know
 

The Spirit of Man

I'm chasing a shadow, I can't see a thing
It's dipping and diving like a bird on the wing
And every time I get near it just seems to slip away
There's a fighter inside who will never give up
We are what we are and it's never enough
Write the words in the sand that this man will come again
 
You may run from the sea, and the words disappear
Oh, you may fall to your knees
But the power is here, to survive
 
It's shining again
It's shining again - the spirit of man
It's shining again - the spirit of man
It's shining again
 
Ah, remember the first day of man on the moon
The whole world was watching, a whole world in tune
It was hard to believe he was the same as me and you
Oh, look back to the future and look down the years
It wasn't all battles and bad news and tears
We have brought to this place a desire to have a dream
 
We may reach for the stars, and fall from the sky
Oh, in the darkest hour the spirit of man comes to life
 
It's shining again - the spirit of man
It's shining again - the spirit of man
It's shining again - the spirit of man
It's shining again
 
And we work, aha, for the good things that we can have
Yeah we work, aha, for the family and home
Yeah we work, aha, for the D-Mark and the dollar
Yeah we work, aha, for the woman on the phone
Yeah we work (so hard), aha, for that moment of elation
Yeah we work, aha, for a chance to get away
And we work, aha, just to let imagination
Come inside and take me away
 
We may reach for the stars, and fall from the sky
Oh, in the darkest hour the spirit of man comes to life
 
It's shining again - the spirit of man
It's shining again - the spirit of man
It's shining again - the spirit of man
It's shining again - the spirit of man
 
(We work, we work, we work)
 
It's shining again - the spirit of man
It's shining again - the spirit of man
It's shining again - the spirit of man
It's shining again
 

The Lewis Bridal Song

(Chorus:)
Step we gaily, on we go,
Heel for heel and toe for toe,
Arm in arm and row on row,
All for Mairi's wedding.
 
Over hill-ways up and down,
Myrtle green and bracken brown,
Past the sheilings, thro' the town,
All for sake o' Mairi.
 
(Chorus)
 
Red her cheeks as rowans are,
Bright her eye as any star,
Fairest o' them a' by far
Is our darling Mairi.
 
(Chorus)
 
Plenty herring, plenty meal,
Plenty peat to fill her creel,
Plenty bonny bairns as weel:
That's the toast for Mairi.
 
(Chorus)
