The Archipelago

Oh my son

Come back home

I will be waiting, waiting 

You be dreaming oh your days

You were dancing on the archipelago

 

 

Miller and the Midnight Cry 

We are left scorned, oh father of mine, waiting all night for our home. We hung 

our harps, rumors afire, now we’re estranged

Lift your eyes, look to the sanctuary, there you’ll find ancient of days. Wake the 

dawn, know the revealers timing, hold your heart, your work is not yet done

In 1818, oh so convinced, all of those years in the books. The falling of stars, 

thousands had followed, now we’re alone

Lift your eyes, look to the sanctuary, there you’ll find ancient of days. Wake the 

dawn, know the revealers timing, hold your heart, your work is not yet done

We wake the dawn

 

 

Knox Patrick

A man now 

It’s a new day the sun is rising

There’s something beating in his chest 

He takes his ink and nib and writes

Nothing but a calling on his mind 

Listen he’s a man now

His heart is purer than a diamond

His thoughts are way above the crowd

He says goodbye to ma and father

They wave as they with tears release their son 

Listen he’s a man now

Listen he’s a man now

He sees a lass there in the distance 

Her hair is long her fragrance sweet 

Stories, they collide and sing 

The day that they await is near 

Listen he’s a man now

Listen he’s a man now

Listen he’s a man now

 

 

Blood Brothers

King is sick

Play a song for him

In return a javelin hurled at me

I’m running away I’m running away

To the field of my brother

You driving me away, I’m running away 

My brother 

Please don’t leave 

My plea  

Stay comfort me

I didn’t’ sign up for this

Oh take my sword my shield

Your hands

The armies of the hills

My future is not sealed

Your words 

Broken the covenant you made

Now bulls surround me, they encircle me

I’m running away I’m running away

My brother 

Please don’t leave 

My plea  

Stay comfort me

I didn’t’ sign up for this

Oh take my sword my shield

Your hands

The armies of the hills

My future is not sealed

Your words 

My brother 

Please don’t leave 

My plea, Stay comfort me

 

 

Floating now

“My husband and I, We were soul mates, I was right there by his side always, Its just the way we were”

We are floating now

Water holds us high 

Never to fall in unbelief

I have built this, oh my days

Look at my scars

My weathered hands, look in my eyes

It was cheap enough

Futures bright my dear

Faithfulness prevails 

We smiled as we saw, the breaking clouds 

I have built this, oh my days

Look at my scars

My weathered hands, look in my eyes

It was cheap enough

I’ll hold your heart my dear

Our boat meets earth my dear

Faithfulness prevails

We are floating

 

 

Arrows 

Broken I came to you

And I fell at your feet

Tripping over my regrets, consequence, 

now relenting, now repenting

These eyes need light

Oh my head needs the oil

My burden is lifting 

The arrows retreat at your word 

I’ve journeyed through hinterlands 

I swam in the leaves

I covered my face with the rain, rid this stain

Needing release, craving your peace

These eyes need light

Oh my head needs the oil

My burden is lifting 

The arrows retreat at your word 

The sins of our fathers

The ache of the nation

Broken in two by the king of redemption 

The lines in our borders

The red on our hands

Like a plunge in the blue there is clear

These eyes need light

Oh my head needs the oil

My burden is lifting 

The arrows retreat at your word 

 

 

Winter

I cannot let go

My mission calls me back to you

You’ve won my heart

The winter season 

The rugged plains that I traverse

So I can savour

Holding you in my arms today

We’ve come so far

Stay with me you can’t go back there 

Stay with me you can’t go now 

Stay with me you can’t go back there 

 

 

Open sea

I’m free

Running to the open sea

Sky is overwhelming me

Its amazing I’m with you

Friend all these you’ve walked with me

Sowing life inside of me

I’m indebted to you

Wipe away my pride

How I want you by my side

We’ve unveiled our disguise

Oh I want you 

And I feel 

Surprising calamity 

Earth is shaking under me

Danger never hindered you

Life, nothing more than spoken words

Woven through an atmosphere

It’s amazing I’m with you

Wipe away my pride

How I want you by my side

We’ve unveiled our disguise

Oh I want you 

All that we endure

All that we hold on to

The shape of the sunset, the look in your eyes

Its amazing I’m with you

 

 

The sound of your waterfalls

You spoke to me

You spoke to me

In a cave when I was afraid 

You spoke to me

You spoke to me

In a cave when I was afraid 

A beckoning, a still small voice

Chaos ends, what am I doing here

A beckoning, a still small voice

In a cave when I was afraid 

Oh my child where are you running

Its over now, the sound of my waterfalls calling you

“reside, reside in me,” 

Everything that I demonstrated all power and might, the sound of my waterfalls 

calling you

“abide, abide in me,”

Oh my child

 

 

Dry bones

You sat me down in the valley 

My eyes beheld a barren waste it does not live  

Wind, oh quicken this 

Wind, instilling birth again today 

I see a great battalion as they stand upon their feet 

The graves have opened up oh breathe 

Sing, can these bones sing? 

The things that I saw

The things that I heart

My head in my hands

My coat in the sand

Son of man, can these bones live?

Son of man, can they sing? 

I see a great battalion as they stand upon their feet 

The graves have opened up oh breathe 

 

 

Kempsey

All that the world could not give

All that the world could not give

All that the world could not give

Is found in the Son of His Love

All that the city could not sing

And all that your walls could not save

And all that the world could not give

Is found in the Son of His Love

Don’t let me hesitate to praise you in your gates

Don’t let me hesitate
