|| Blue Surrender With blue surrender And tears of joy With tongues of fire She loved the boy, She learned To take him by the hand She waited for the man In him. In the world a singer She holds a spark For a song like diamonds In the dark And as the big lights burn the stage All that comes of age Is blue surrender
Through the night I feel her cold hand creep To brush the teardrop from her smile The demon dares With bodies drenched with sleep And when the night is gone Behind the curtains drawn It's blue surrender Just one more time To cool the burning Down inside And as you lean into the flame You call out in the name Of blue surrender Rept Ch.

The Shadow It's over now The guns have flowed The nightmare flashed On a cradel road, As the guilty rain came down. No child to hold Through anxious fears No gentle hand To catch the tears That soak the ancient ground. The smile that breaks so gently Belies a troubled head Like a voice that holds the secrets Of the life you might have led, Eyes with pale indifference In danger and in grace But the glance that knows the death-knell Left it's shadow on your face. In the deep enduring darkness As your loyal friends go down Touched by the violent crown 'Till their their hunter's,hunted down. Ch. And it's over now............ The web is slowly woven The endless dreamer shed, In the dawn the curfew is broken On the sunday mornings' dead. Centuries of thunder Take the Castle in the flood To the cold night air of London Where your hands are bound in blood. Mid winter deepened As the parting turned inside A thousand times you cried But the shadow never died. And it's over now The guns have flowed The nightmare flashed On a cradel road, As the guilty rain came down. No child to hold Through anxious fears No gentle hand No graceful years Just bitter ancient ground. But it's over now. Donagh Long. Universal Music SOLDIERS OF DESTINY Well we used to be Like Soldiers of destiny. And we used to drive our wings Through a clear blue sky. And if you still believe Believe in what tomorrow brings And you can drink from the endless well As the years roll by. But if you've got a heart for me And I know you had a heart for me And if you can find it at the end of every day Then there is still a place for me Burning in the midnight breeze And we will never lose our way As the years roll by. But if you find someone Hold him close and warm him. For it's the love inside That your great heart yearns. And if your happiness Is more than just a smile May the light in your brown eyes Bring you a child. And may your only true love Never be a blue love May you always be so carefree and so wild. And may whoever takes your hand Keep you safe and strong And may you never lose your way As the years roll by. Copyright Little Rox ARMS OF AN EAGLE Well the sunday drive is nearly over Bring the tired and hungry home And my Fathers' songs bring tears and laughter With a magic all their own For the working man it's a simple plan Now his Everest is near Guide the children of his faithfull union So safely through their years Ch. I grew up in the arms of an eagle Untouched by fear That I should be the lucky one To always have you near The stories of his early childhood In the great war first saw light He cut his teeth on the North-Atlantic fleets As the Dogs of War came out to fight And he'd shake his head in disbelief At how they tore the world apart He knelt and prayed that men some day Might lose the darkness in their hearts When the clouds had cleared and the war was over And we were safe and free He turned his hand as an honest man To keep his family In the summer of my younger years He would sing and I would play Now the songs still linger on inside me "From Rangoon across the Bay" A Place to Fall I held the hand of a girl one time,Who had touched the face of GodAnd I became her prisonerIn my body and my thoughtsI gave in so easy thenItís so hard to recallEverybody needs some place to fall Building bonfires to our youthWe scaled the Castle wallsWe freed the slaves in innocenceAnd we stood proud and tallWe tore up all the papersVows of love and allDid we both just need a place to fall I keep knocking on at my true lovesí doorShe donít answer me, cause I still want moreI didnít see it comingAnd I ran into the wallMaybe I just need a place to fall. So I exchanged a bibleFor my blood-stained rosaryAnd I woke up on a hillsideWith moon and silver seaI can hear the whole world singingAnswering my callBaby I just found a place to fall Jakes' Song It's not your love that makes you crazy, Or your desire that makes you crawl. And leaves you helpless, like a baby. On hands and knees to feel so small. You'll grow up in a world where angels, Throw their wings away too soon. Don't lose your love on careless strangers, Or wait too long under the moon. But to stay away from love Would be unkind. Don't be afraid of love. You were made for love Remember always. I see you move behind the curtain That turns a tremble to a smile. Your hand is quick but your eye's uncertain With passion born you bless the child. But to stay away from love Would be unkind. Don't be afraid of love. God knows you're made of love Remember always.
The China Waltz
Silver falls,Like painted dolls they sit.Their endless days now done.In fields of fireTheir hearts retireDancing the china waltz. Their younger yearsStill touched by thoughts(That) their time will surely comeAnd all their daysThrown awayOn love and the secret waltz. Ch.So dance me the china waltzUnder the Easter moonThey move in silence as their bodies rise and fall'Till the first love's overtakenIn the breaking light at dawn The hard releaseThat steals the peaceful dreamMight take this breath awayBut here behind Where love goes blindThe sound of the china waltz Rpt.Ch Lyrics and Music Donagh Long.
