Anywhere is

Lyrics by Roma Ryan
[top]
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

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 the 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

Athair ar Neamh

Lyrics by Roma Ryan
[top]
Athair ar Neamh.  Dia linn.
Athair ar Neamh.  Dia liom.
M'anam, mo chroí, mo ghlóir,
moladh duit, a Dhia.

Fada an la, go sámh,
fada an oíche', gan ghruaim,
aoibhneas, áthas, grá,
moladh duit, a Dhia.

Moraim thú ó lá go lá.
Moraim thú ó oéch' go hoích'.

Athair ar Neamh.  Dia linn.
Athair ar Neamh.  Dia liom.
An ghealach, an ghrian, an ghaoth,
moladh duit, a Dhia.

Translation:
Father in Heaven, God help us.
Father in Heaven, God help me.
My soul, my heart, my voice
praise to you, oh God.

Long is the day, and peaceful,
long is the night without gloom,
happiness, joy, love,
praise to you, oh God.

I praise you from day to day.
I praise you night after night.

Father in Heaven, God help us.
Father in Heaven, God help me.
The moon, the sun, the wind,
praise be to you, oh God.

China Roses

Lyrics by Roma Ryan
[top]
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.

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.

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.

I see the sun...
I see the stars...

Hope Has a Place

Lyrics by Roma Ryan
[top]
One look at love 
and you may see
it weaves a web 
over mystery,
all ravelled threads
can rend apart
for hope has a place in the lover's heart.
Hope has a place in the 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 the 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 are wanderers.
So let love rise,
so let love depart,
let hope have a place in the lover's heart.
Hope has a place in the 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.
Hope is home and the heart is free.

Once You Had Gold

Lyrics by Roma Ryan
[top]
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.

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.

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.

La Soñadora

Lyrics by Roma Ryan
[top]
Yo;  el otoño
Yo;  el véspero
He sido un  eco

Seré una ola
Seré la luna
He sido todo, soy yo

Yo;  el verano
Yo;  el ébano
Soy la soñadora

Translation:
I; the autumn
I; the evening star
I have been an echo

I shall be a wave
I shall be the moon
I have been everything, I am myself 

I; the summer
I; the ebony
I am the dreamer

On my way home

Lyrics by Roma Ryan
[top]
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.

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.
On my way home
I remember 
all the best days.
I'm on my way home
I can remember
every new day.
