Lyrics: The Promise Ring (1997)

 

Born To Dance

Fortune takes its name from tunesongs
Given for the freedom now delivered
Wake each son and daughter's lovelife
Spread the sweetest tidings now
Never let the sign of doubt
Love is here to stay

Born to dance
Born to live
Each one sacred step of life
Born to dance
Born to live
Each one sacred step of life

Gather all your favorite memories
Given for the wisdom now delivered
Sing each father, mother, love life
Spread the strongest tidings now
Never will the darkness be
Love is here to stay

Born to dance
Born to live
Each one sacred step of life
Born to dance
Born to live
Each one sacred step of life

Born to dance
Born to live
Each one sacred step of life
Born to dance
Born to live
Each one sacred step of life

Shake the dust of years a thousand
Speaking of the truth now delivered
All the mountains our relations
Hear the greeting tidings come
Now the world enchantment be
Love is here to stay

Born to dance
Born to live
Each one sacred step of life
Born to dance
Born to live
Each one sacred step of life

Flowers Of The Morning

All this time we've walked together
Watching for the flowers to grow
Knowing that our needs are simple
Knowing that our time has come
Now the world is ours
Now the smile is yours
Hold me like the moon 'n stars
Hold me like the river

All this time we've known this reason
Changes come and clear the air
Listening with the singing birds
Our peace of mind is waiting here
It's the course of Love
In the chord of life
I'll hold you like the summer breeze
And kiss you every morning

We want for nothing
Look out yonder to the sunset
God is glorious every day
Stars do shine and we have heaven
Now our peace of mind is clear
It's the course of Love
In the chord of life
I'll bring you flowers of my love
And love the flower of the morning

Timing Of The Known

If only time had brought us here
A thousand days or more
A thousand souls would come to life
And dance on every shore
For all the world has come to see
The meeting of the heart 'n' mind
Is all that humans need to do
To see the heavens begin

So all I see is you were there
And all I know the fire so strong
This timing of the ancient lore
This timing of the known

Now all we know transpired a while
While angels brought the power to bear
They specialize in credence form
To heal the broken hearts

How nature watches from afar
And spells the truth out in the corn
Be careful of the deeds you sow
So surely shall ye reap

So all I see is you were there
And all I know the fire so strong
The timing of the ancient lore
This timing of the known

If all the world we really knew
And understood the truth to be
We'd far more want to dance 'n' sing
The bringing o'er the light
At last our children stand in peace
The prophets say we live the news
Just once again forevermore
With nothing left to lose

So all I see is you were there
And all I know the fire so strong
The timing of the ancient lore
This timing of the known

If only time had brought us here
A thousand days or more
A thousand souls would come to life
And dance on every shore
For all the world has come to see
The meeting of the heart 'n' mind
Is all that humans need to do
To see the heavens begin

So all I see is you were there
And all I know the fire so strong
This timing of the ancient lore
This timing of the known

True Life Song

Lay down in the stars, my bonny lass
Lay down in my arms, we'll make it last
The senses aspire to this far greater time
As the rivers flow your heart will be mine

She changed my soul with her angel eyes
She gave her love to set me free
Like the waves of the ocean that come to the shore
She'd be loved by me forevermore

On the first of May all spring will arise
As the gardens of Eireland will be coming alive
'Tis the first day of wonder and the first day of light
I'm so glad we've arrived in a freedom so bright

So lay down in the heavens, my bonny lass
Lay down in my arms, we'll make it last
In the parting of old ways, we made our last stand
'Tis the first day of our future in this new land

She changed my soul with her angel eyes
She gave her love to set me free
Like the waves of the ocean that come to the shore
She'd be loved by me forevermore

We'll change our wisdom through your angel eyes
We have sown the seeds for our children's lives
For at last the aching has gone far away
Bring the future of Eireland to this new day

My Sweet Jane

Bring the glory, my sweet Jane
Down from heaven, down the lane
Sing the glory of her name
Singing, true li-ay

Spin the circle, make a chain
Dance the glory, my sweet Jane
Bring the sunshine every day
Dancing, true li-ay

For all to know the world's alive
At last the vision has survived
We see the future children sing
The glory of the world

As one together, pull together
One together we will be
Now the music is the power
Bringing love forever

The road ahead, the road ahead
The road ahead, can take us anywhere

Bring the glory, my sweet Jane
Down from heaven, down the lane
Sing the glory of her name
Singing, true li-ay

She takes me to a sacred place
Every time she kisses me
The light of love is on her face
Loving, true li-ay

We fly up to heaven on a wing
Listening for the birds to sing
We hear the angels on their wing
Every time we're loving

For all to know the world's alive
At last the vision has survived
We see the future children sing
The glory of the world

Bring the glory, my sweet Jane
Down from heaven, down the lane
Sing the glory of her name
Singing, true li-ay

The road ahead, the road ahead
The road ahead, can take us anywhere

I met her when my heart was low
She taught me how to love again
I watch her when he greets the day
I love her, true li-ay

A world of love is in her eyes
When she dances close to me
No one could ever take the prize
I love her, true li-ay

So deep inside my senses roar
When I hold her in my arms
I wake up to her every morn
Sunshine all the time

For all to know the world's alive
At last the vision has survived
We see the future children sing
The glory of the world

As one together, pull together
One together we will be
Now the music is the power
Bringing love forever

The road ahead, the road ahead
The road ahead, can take us anywhere

A world of love is in her eyes
When she dances close to me
No one could ever take the prize
I love her, true li-ay

True Hands Of Fate

There'll be times in my day
When I think of the past
How we tend to survive all that comes
How the maker repeats
With the sun of each morn
And the moon and the stars at night

Take a meadow of green
And the gold of the corn
As the flowers decorate by each wall
And the birds sing away as tho'
Nothing will change
Now that Eireland is Eireland once more

I have travelled so far
To the ends of the world
I have yet to feel all I can feel
Yet the maker redeems
A whole country each morn
Bringing light to the hearts of the dawn

Shall we sing to the grandmothers
Fathers long gone
Spread the wings of the angels of faith
There's a time to be born
And to be born again
Now that Eireland is Eireland once more

Make the most of each hour
Make the most of each day
We are blessed to begin a new time
Make our forefathers glad
All was not so in vain
So replenish the land that was given

To your friends both be kind
Yes, be gentle as lambs
And as clear as the stars, be as one
So may all of your dreams
Come to live in your heart
And be seen as a sign of the times

So be true hands of fate
Let the children be free
Let the spirit of goodness prevail
We shall rise to the change
As we rise up every day
And survive all that comes our way

O'er

O'er the green mountains 'n o'er the green valleys
The bluebird of faith sails far off to the shore
She sleeps on the breeze of the coming of love
The homelands of Eireland

So many times on the clouds of forgiveness
We walk through the country to feel so at ease
A gentle reminder how things really are
In the homelands of love

So the bluebird will fly o'er the world 'n' the stars
In the moonlight she prays for forgiveness that's ours
Only now can she rest from the singing of songs and
The freedom of love

We awake from a slumber, an age to receive
A way of forgiving, a planting of seeds
Watching the trees and the flowering of truth
Spread all over the world

So the bluebird will fly o'er the world 'n' the stars
In the moonlight she prays for forgiveness that's ours
Only now can she rest from the singing of songs and
The freedom of love

O'er the green mountains 'n o'er the green valleys
The bluebird of faith sails far off to the shore
She sleeps on the breeze of the coming of love
The homelands of Eireland
