ACOUSTICALLY YOURS
(featuring Cormac De Barra)

© Hazel O`Connor

Under the shelter of the old milky way
On a beautiful star studded night
I realise
I am miniscule
When ever I gaze on that sight
And I wish that you could play me a tune
And we could make music till dawn

Accompany me, through some wild diddle diddle dee
And I’ll be acoustically yours

Let's make us a wish here together we'll stand
Through the vastness of spaces and time
We can be friends' oh we can be friends
Stripped down with nothing to hide
And maybe you could play me a tune
And we could make music till dawn

Accompany me, through some wild diddle diddle dee
And I’ll be acoustically yours

If everyone who lived on this earth
Lit a torch at the very same time
Together we'd make like a new milky way
Together its how we will shine
Aah come on y'all and sing us a song
We could make music till dawn

Accompany me, through some wild diddle diddle dee
And I’ll be acoustically yours

Accompany me, through some wild diddle diddle dee
And I’ll be acoustically yours

Accompany me, through some wild diddle diddle dee
And I’ll be acoustically yours

I'LL SEE YOU AGAIN
© Hazel O`Connor - Cormac De Barra

In my heart, in my soul
In my darkest hours
Through rivers deep,
Lonely roads over mountain towers
Through the driving rain and the sunlit plains
It's you I embrace
From the echo on the wind
Its your song they sing

It says
I'll see you again
I'll see you again

Another door, another hall
Another lonely room
I light a candle to your name
Hoping to lift the gloom
I run my fingers through your hair
And your almost there
As play through your hair
And whatever comes my way
I'll survive siné

And
I'll see you again
I'll see you again

Through the driving rain and the sunlit plains
It's you i embrace
And whatever comes way
I'll survive siné

I said
I'll see you again
I said
I'll see you again
And
I'll see you again
I'll see you again

HIDDEN
(featuring Moya Brennan)
© Hazel O`Connor - Mike Bennett

I walked the path the winding road
That told me things that shouldn’t be told
I climbed the rock of ages old
And I saw

Hearts and souls of humanity
Earth and the air
The sky and the sea
Left all their words
That were passed on for free

Tell me how were they hidden
How were they hidden
How how
How were they hidden so long

You talk in awe of wonders and fears
And listen intently but never quite hear
You sold the rock of ages old
And you cry

Hearts and souls of humanity
The earth and the air
The sky and the sea
Began with the word
That was passed on for free

Tell me how were they hidden
How were they hidden
How how
How were they hidden so long

How were they hidden so long
How were they hidden so long
How were they hidden so long
How were they hidden so long
Been so long


I walked the path the winding road
That told me things that shouldn’t be told
I climbed the rock of ages old
And you cried

Hearts and souls of humanity
Earth and the air
The sky and the sea
Left all their words
That were passed on for free

Tell me
How were they hidden
How were they hidden
How how
How were they hidden so long

How were they hidden
How were they hidden
How how
How were they hidden so long

How were they hidden
How were they hidden
How how
How were they hidden so long
Hid so long

PERFECT DAYS
© Hazel O`Connor - Diane Charlemayne

Look out over the ocean
See what you can see
Another land, another people
Essentially like you and me
And all these lives had their moments
Been the buildings blocks of change
Recognise each circumstance
We're family not a bloody race

Get ready cause
Here come the time
Here come the place
Here come the moment
Here come the perfect days

Each and every creature
Has it's true and rightful place
We are not the overlords
We are links upon the chain
And each and every creature
Treasures in their heyday
Nobody can overlord
We're sharing, there's a world
And there's the space

Get ready cause
Here come the time
Here come the place
Here come the moment
Here come the perfect days

Get ready
Here come the time
Here come the place
Here come the moment
Here come the perfect days
Get ready

Now if you've travelled far
And if you've travelled worldwide
And you get to speak another lingo
Then you online, your online oh yeah
They say knowledge
It is power
Not to be abused
Use it for a little understanding
Gotta use that God given tool

Get ready cause
Here come the time
Here come the place
Here come the moment
Here come the perfect days
Get ready

Here come the time
Here come the place
Here come the moment
Here come the perfect days
Get ready
Get ready
Get ready
Here come the time

WHO WILL CARE?
© Hazel O`Connor

Did she wake up cold and alone
Hoping someone might phone
Did she crawl out of bed, scratch her head
Look in the mirror and think she was dead
Who will care? Who will care?
Did she thrown on her clothes and
Walk slowly to the door
Go into town hoping to score
Did she find her a man who said he'd give her all he can
And when that's not enough then life starts to get tough
Who will care? Who will care?

Did she die in the cold
Was she scared to be old
Nobody knows where and old loner goes
At the end of the line

And on one grey day some children at play
Saw her dead body, thought it was funny
Oh look at that lady on the ground fast asleep
Nobody knew her so nobody weeps
Who will care? Who will care?

Did she die in the cold
Was she scared to be old
Nobody knows where and old loner goes
At the end of the line

Did she? Did she? Who was she?

STRONG
© Hazel O`Connor - Gavin Barrett

Somebody told me
Your spirit had gone
Worn down by a cynical world
Had it stolen your clothes

Somebody told me you know, you know
If it don't kill you it'll make you strong

And I wish I was close
I would wrap my lovin' arms around you
But I’m not and all I’ve got
Are my platitudes, songs and the
Hopes that you'll make it through

Somebody told me you know
Don’t you know
If it don't kill you it'll make you strong
If it don't kill you it'll make you strong

I tried to remember
Was such a long time ago
When we were forever
You said we'd always gone on
Being stronger and stronger
And strong

Stronger and strong

Somebody told me
Your spirit had gone
But I don't believe it's true
Cause it was you
Who said the spirit goes on and on and on

Somebody told me it was you - you know
If it don’t kill you it'll make you strong

Yeah yeah it will make you so strong
It will make you so strong
You'll be stronger than strong

LOVABLE
© Hazel O`Connor - Cormac De Barra
- Fionán de Barra

Isn't it good when you
Finally meet one who
Brightens your world
With their view

Maybe there's hope for me
Stop watching junk tv
I'm born again
Human being

Many lives I've lived before
Many kinds of armour
There's many loves
And many hurts
They make my heart grow harder

But you make me feel
Like I was lovable
You make feel
Like I was the only woman in the whole wide world
And it was beautiful
You make me feel
Like I was the only woman in the whole wide world

Come in and keep me warm
Shelter me from the storm
Billy will sing us a song
Then maybe we could dance
Take us a tiny chance
See we have a romance

Many times I've blown my moments
Moments heaven sent
With many tries
And many fails
I thought my strength was spent

Then you make me feel
Like I was lovable
You make feel
Like I was the only woman in the whole wide world
And it was beautiful
You make me feel
Like I was the only woman in the whole wide world

Theres many live's I've lived before
There's many kinds of harm here
There's many hopes
And many dreams
They make your heart grow stronger

And you make me feel
Like I was lovable
You make feel
Like I was the only woman in the whole wide world
And it was beautiful
You make me feel
Like I was the only woman in the whole wide world

You made me feel
Like I was lovable
Like I was the only woman in the whole wide world
And it was beautiful
You make me feel
Like I was the only woman in the whole wide world

TIME AFTER TIME
© Hazel O`Connor - Major Black

Time after time, I will follow you,
I lay myself on the line, I'll always try for you
Because you, you are my inspiration
you, you are my destination

That's why time after time I choose you

Night after night, I have dreamed of you
I see your smile, see your face, how can I ever hide from you
Because you, you are my inspiration
you, you are my destination

Time after time, I will follow you,

I lay myself on the line, I'd even die for you
Because you, you are my inspiration
you, you are my destination

That's why time after time I choose you
Time after time I choose you
time after time

TELL ME WHY
(featuring Rob Reynolds)
© Hazel O`Connor - Major Black

Tell me why, why, why when a man wants a woman
does he give her his best, does he try to impress
all the things he will do for her, why,
when that man gets that woman, does he
tend to neglect her, does he tend to forget all
the things, all the things that he said to get her
all the promises that he made, gonna lose
what he gained, cause the...

Time has come for things to change
gotta change

Tell me why, why, why when a woman wants a man
does she give him her best, does she try to impress
all the things she will do for her, why,
when that woman gets that man, does she
give him her heart, does she then fall apart
when he's late start to hate, all those lonely
nights alone when the loving feelings have gone
when his home's not a home, when the...

Time has come for things to change
gotta change

And why does a woman, why does a man
turn something special into a battle ground
When they both know what they're fighting
is just a losing battle against the power
of love which nobody ever wins

Tell me why, why, why when a man loves a woman
why can't he change, just rearrange all the
things that does to hurt her why when
that woman gets that man, why can't she forgive
him, cause, the...

Time has come for things to change
gotta change

END OF MY DAYS
© Hazel O'Connor - Cormac De Barra

I remember our youth as we played in the snow
Our foot steps be melting the places we'd go
When the day was done
We'd off and run
Turn round and say
Tis here I’ll be waiting at the end of my days

Now the seasons have moved on
And we've both gone our ways
And I savour the moments
And I rage at my fate
Did we lose our way
One fine day
Forgot to say
Tis here I’ll be waiting at the end of my days

I have travelled my own road
Now the end does come near
In the gathering darkness
Like a beacon you appear
And we say hello
Like we'd always know
That's where we'll be
Tis here I’ll be waiting at the end of my days
Tis here I’ll be waiting at the end of my days
Tis here I’ll be waiting at the end of my days

IF ONLY
(featuring Tony Dangerfield
of the Subterraneans)
© Hazel O`Connor

What do you do when they turn on the light
You guard your heart, so they steal your sight
You reach out in blindness, touch the alone
His icicle fingers chill you to the bone
What do you do when the cat gets your tongue
No way to tell it's all going wrong
Mouth out the words on the telephone
Nobody answers, nobody's home

What's done has been done, and I won't be the one
Who despairs in the wheelchair, resigned to 'if only'
No, I'll stand up again and I'll run
I'll jump up till I touch the sun
Because I won't be the one to be bound
By the sound of 'if only, if only, if only...'

Well, I reach out in blindness now, but what do I care?
I'll walk into walls and I'll stumble downstairs
I'll laugh like a fishwife, I'll cry like a clown
Up is the only way to go when you're down
When I reach a mountain top, then I start to climb
I'll walk on the water, I'll turn water to wine
Hope is the one thing we got on our side
Hope can be salvaged when all else has died

What's done has been done, and I won't be the one
Who despairs in the wheelchair, resigned to 'if only'
No, I'll stand up again and I'll run
I'll jump up till I touch the sun
Because I won't be the one to be bound
By the sound of 'if only, if only, if only...'

What's done has been done, and I won't be the one
Who despairs in the wheelchair, resigned to 'if only'
No, I'll stand up again and I'll run
I'll jump up till I touch the sun
Because I won't be the one to be bound
By the sound of 'if only, if only, if only...'

FEAR OF FLYING
© Hazel O`Connor - Gavin Barrett

Sometimes I’ve been afraid of flying
Then I’d wish that was lying in my home
Head hidden under the bed clothes
These days are few and far between now
I try hard to memorise words my mum said to me
Life ain't rehearsal its real so show no fear

And you could
Laugh out loud
Loud and proud
Sing and dance
Might only get one chance

Jump and run
Have your fun
Live and learn
And learn to love yourself

And be brave of heart
And try to be kind
Let love shine
And don't be afraid to fly

Sometimes life can be so trying
It's no use in sitting down and crying on my own
All alone in the blue room
Come on come out and to play like we were
Back then we'd memorise words my mum said to me
Life ain’t rehearsal its real
So show no fear

And you could
Laugh out loud
Loud and proud
Sing and dance
Might only get one chance

Jump and run
Have your fun
Live and learn
And learn to love yourself

And be brave of heart
And try to be kind
Let love shine
And don't be afraid to fly

Live is but a stage
And all the people
Merely players on it
Each one in their time
Has many entrances and many exits
Each in our time
Play many parts
Each in our time
Play many parts

You could
Laugh out loud
Loud and proud
Sing and dance
You might only get,
You might only get
One chance

Jump and run
Have your fun
Live and learn
And learn to love
You gotta learn to love
Yourself


Laugh out loud
Loud and proud
Sing and dance
You might only get,
You might only get
One chance

Jump and run
Have your fun
Live and learn
And don't be afraid to fly
