Track Name: Juno's Song
Into the world with innocent eyes
No burdens to bear, no reason to hide
Watch, little one, there’s so much to learn
How gardens grow and how seasons turn

Oh Bonny Girl, you’ve stolen our hearts
More than a dream and brighter than stars
How could we know before you arrived
How one so small could open our eyes

Dream in the day and gaze at the sky
If you want wings we’ll teach you to fly
Let us bring sun to your rainy days
We’ll be the breeze to blow clouds away


Wherever you go, whatever you do
We’ll be the words to comfort and soothe
Open our arms and wipe away tears
All of our love for infinite years

Track Name: The House
When you go, wake me from my sleep
You say the fight is yours and yours alone
But you know I’m here to hold you
If you fall I’m where you are
Wait for me and see what we can be

This is the house we built together
When the dawn was burning through the misty shore
And through these walls we fight for freedom
Let the arrows fly and strike a lasting chord
For many years the light of hope
Will guide us safely through the night
We carry on and stand together
Though the walls around us may be burning down

Ask yourself if you would do the same
Let me go and face the fight alone
In the dark I’ll stand beside you
We’ve been through so much before
Now it’s time to let me be your light

Track Name: Riddles & Rhymes
You said you loved me
But wasn’t I stupid sometimes
Warm on the outside
But cold as an ice wind inside
With thoughts held so deep
Even I cannot sleep ‘til I find
The root of the cause
But I’m left without reason or rhyme

Where are you now?
It’s torn me apart
I give you the words that I should’ve said more
I listen so hard to find
Is there any love behind riddles and rhymes?
And we’re lost in time

Three words are easy
Believing them’s harder to do
Simple affection, a shield from the obvious truth
It’s simple to see
That these words are not all that they seem
It’s time to admit that we looked
So much better in dreams


And still it comes down to
The feelings we had from the start
When you’re in my mind
All the heartache is gone for a time

Track Name: For Real
You’re a day in the park
You’re the light in the dark
You’re the needle and thread
When I’m undone
You’re the sound of the sea
You are where I want to be
You’re the road and I’m standing at the start

See the perfect paper pages turning fast
Here’s where our story goes
So take the pen and make it last

‘Cos I never quite imagined what this could be
And I’m looking for the words but they’re out of reach
But I’ll tell you the one thing
Think this is something that I don’t want to lose
I’m underneath the water but I can breath
And I hope you’re reading between the lines I speak
I wake up everyday to sunshine
I’ve got a sneaky feeling that this time it’s for real

You’re a night full of stars
You arrived here from Mars
You’re a scarf in the coldest winter snow
You’re the rain in the drought
You’re the one I talk about
You’re the breeze in the Caribbean heat

See the perfect paper pages turning fast
Here’s where our story goes
So take the pen and make it last

Track Name: The Time That Comes Between
In the darkened morn you left me
And you made but not a sound
Your eyes met mine so briefly
My heart it broke in two
Where’er you go come home to me
Where the fire always burns
Let it lead you back to my love
Let the heat light up your soul

How far we are could not keep us apart
Keep me in mind, keep me safe in your heart
Carry me, oh carry me and know you’ll be with me
Patiently I’m living with the time that comes between

One night as I lay sleeping
I saw you in my dreams
In a boat on deep blue oceans
You sailed so far from me
I watched you from the stony shore
‘Til I could see no more
Even in my dreams you are out of reach
Not a sign is sent to me

Track Name: If You Were Mine
It's not too late
For an evergreen romance
It only takes
Something wanting from within your soul
Would you let this go?

I overheard
You’ve been looking for a sign
Don’t look too hard
You could find it’s right before your eyes
Let your heart think twice

When we collide I see the stars align before me
A burning history that's making room for somebody new
Oh could you ever give yourself the way you want to?
Let's see tonight if we can play the game
As if you were mine

We fall in time
Like the oldest summer leaves
You closed your eyes
To the sight of something real and true
Let the light shine through

You gave your heart
To an unforgiving soul
In love and hope
We are bound until we let them go
Could you ever know?

CHORUS to fade
Track Name: Star of the County Down
In Banbridge Town in the County Down
One morning last July
From a boreen green came a sweet colleen
And she smiled as she passed me by
She looked so sweet from her two bare feet
To the sheen of her nut brown hair
Such a coaxing elf, sure I shook myself
For to see I was really there

From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and
From Galway to Dublin Town
No maid I've seen like the fair colleen
That I met in the County Down

As she onward sped, sure I scratched my head
And I looked with a feeling rare
And I says, says I to a passer-by
"Who’s the maid with the nut brown hair?”
He smiled at me and he says, says he
"That's the gem of Ireland's crown
Young Rosie McCann from the banks of the Bann
She's the star of the County Down."


At the Harvest Fair she'll be surely there
And I'll dress in my Sunday clothes
With my shoes shone bright and my hat cocked right
For a smile from the nut brown rose
No pipe I'll smoke and no horse I'll yoke
‘Til my plough turns a rust coloured brown
‘Til my smiling bride by my own fireside
Sits the star of the County Down.
