I walked a long way I’ve walked a pace Looking for the day Looking for your lovely face Loving me again This good wind has blown me home And the stars don’t shine alone I’ve felt the cold and known the pain Of you loving me again I’ve walked a long way I’ve walked a pace I’ve waited for this day Now I see your lovely face Loving me again The cruel twist of human kind Is lost and left behind I’ve felt the rain and I’ve been blind To you loving me I’ve come a long way I’ve moved a pace Hurting for the day With every step I lose the race To you loving me again I am tired and I am weary And this tidal wave is dry I’ve felt the grief of my own belief Fallen from the sky I’ve walked a long way And I’ve been sad To see the mountain trail To find the good things with the bad To feel so lost and frail Now I’ll rest within these arms This fine world has no charm I’ve walked a long way to see your face And seeing so disarmed Oh, it fades away Oh, love fades away Oh, it fades away Love comes fading with the day Till I see you loving me again

Changes 02:57
So many changes So many faces So many different roads I love the places Wide open spaces Where sheep no longer roam And now the gardens grow Where there were wild roses And every path is named It’s all well sign-posted So many changes So many faces So many different roads I love the places Wide open spaces The shepherd has no home And now the trees have come And fences beat the drum All for the sake of those Who’d like to make us some So many changes So many faces So many different roads I love the places Wide open spaces Where I no longer roam And so I close my eyes And look for brighter skies And all I’ve loved and lost We must not count the cost The hills are mine forever So many changes So many faces So many different roads I love the places Wide open spaces I love the hills of home

Golden Bells 03:53
Good morning love, Good morning day I greet the sleepy skies The summertime has come again To open up my eyes I see the pleasant sunny sun Across the rippling fields And in that moment wars are won And broken bodies healed Chorus I can hear the golden bells Ringing out within ourselves You and me are all we need To ring the bells Good morning love, Come with a smile And meet me on the hill Where grasses grow and waters flowing Peace between us still The air is breathed, a sweeter air As if to breathe a dream To see it’s you that’s standing there Is more than I can feel Chorus Good morning love, Good morning day Walk with me a while Where every footsteps found or lost With every gentle mile The hare is quiet in the grass A deer across the field And in their shadow I must ask The wings to fly me free Chorus You must believe The golden bells Will ring you through the day That every heartache comes to break And take the bells away And if you feel the rain must fall Close your eyes and pray And ring those bells inside yourself Good morning to the day Chorus I can hear the golden bells Ringing out within ourselves You and me are all we need To make it well Chorus I can hear the golden bells Ringing out within ourselves You and me are all we need To ring the bells

The Only One 03:56
You’re the only face I want to see this morning the only hand I want to hold today the only voice to tell me that you love me the only words I want to hear you say You’re the only one I ever want to talk to the only one who ever understands everyone must speak a foreign language and I am lost to who I really am Chorus It hits me now and then without a warning I’m doing fine and then the ground gives way riding high and suddenly I’m falling you’re not there and I just fly away You’re the only shadow’s length that I want near me the only set of clothes beside the bed the only pair of shoes under the table the only one I want inside my head So it’s all that I can do to face the coffee I made too much and burnt the toast again it’s quiet and the silence creeps up softly I wonder if this day will ever end Chorus It hits me now and then without a warning I’m doing fine and then the ground gives way riding high and suddenly I’m falling you’re not there and I just fly away You’re the only one I want to see tomorrow I’ll be waiting at the station for your train and we’ll embrace the heartbreak and the sorrow but never leave me standing here again no never leave me standing here again

With feet of clay I take the sky And I am broken-hearted Ever-knowing, wondering why The sun and moon have parted Far away among the clouds Come what may I’m wrapped around Wearied from the pilgrim’s door Glad to be back home Washed in sunlight I look away The morning dew like diamonds Quiet sings the lark her joy I hear the silence Words of wisdom now are stilled A curlew crying in the hills With my love the burn flows on Glad to be back home Now the winds begin to sing And my heart is lighter Every angel takes her wings And every morning brighter See the skyway clear and long Feel the life-blood clear and strong Pouring out and pouring on Glad to be back home From the grave the spirit flies Free from pain and sorrow With feet of clay I take the sky For who knows of tomorrow Every breath is sweet to take With every gift of life I break And someone smiling for my sake Glad to be back home Glad to be back home

Even For You 03:40
Far away I’ve been watching you From far away I’ve been keeping you And in the night, keep holding on tight Love is coming true, even for you Hold onto my hand ‘cos these hills are high It’s a barren land I know it makes you cry And when words are cruel, be nobody’s fool Love is coming true, even for you Even for you the sun will shine Even for you a valentine Even for you the stars will glow Even for you a dream will grow Far away I’ve been watching you From far away I’ve been keeping you Even for you the sun will shine Even for you a valentine Even for you the stars will glow Even for you a dream will grow Far away where the breezes blow Far away where the flowers grow I’ll be there to carry your care Love is coming true even for you Love is coming true even for you Love is coming true even for you

When you cried for me Jesus died for me I know that I have been set free When you cried those tears All the years fell away And I know that love has come to stay And the curlew calls from an open door And the soaring lark still sings When you cried for me Jesus’ blood ran free And the brown burn washes me clean When you cried for me I felt the peace At last I laid down my heavy load When you cried those tears And you held me close No more to walk a suffering road And the harebells will come again in August After dog daisies dancing in July When you cried for me You set me free And heaven took its place above the sky You can dry your tears There’ll be no more tears For the storm has passed and gone away When you dry your eyes In the clear blue skies We’ll be smiling in the sweet by and by And the sheep will lie out on higher hills Where the cool wind whispers still When you cried for me Jesus died for me and the lambs will come again in the spring

I'LL HOLD YOUR HAND There’s a chill into the air The evening’s coming in I’m sitting in my chair and I am dreaming The world is running riot But I’m looking to the hills Where everything is quiet And love is with me still I’ll hold your hand until it’s over I’ll hold your hand, lean on my shoulder There’s so much more is needed But the stage is closing down I don’t know how to feel it The death of every clown And all the burned-out bridges Are charcoal in the rain No point in going back there Just to break your heart again I’ll hold your hand until it’s over I’ll hold your hand, lean on my shoulder The flowers are declining In a mass of stalks and leaves The seeds on breezes flying Hoping someone still believes I search the one who stayed with me And take hold of that hand To find the rock from underneath And reach the promised land I’ll hold your hand until it’s over I’ll hold your hand, lean on my shoulder I’ll hold your hand, we’re getting older The time has come to count it And I’m looking to the hills No-one there must doubt it ‘cos love is with me still and I am looking higher and listening for the bells reaching out one final time for one who loves me well RUNNING DOWN THE ROAD The river runs The river runs And I am running down the road There’s the sun I see it come And blood is running down the road I believe I am free And I am running down the road I can see What it’ll be And blood is running down the road The river runs The river runs And I am running down the road No-one comes But no-one comes And blood is running down the road And with a kiss And all of this I am running down the road I am loved I am loved And blood is running down the road The river runs The river runs And I am running down the road There’s the sun I see it come And blood is running down the road And I am running down the road And blood is running down the road And I am running down the road running down the road

A Lovely Day 04:06
it’s the end of a day such a lovely day it’s the end of a day it’s been a lovely day I walk across the fields tonight, it’s quiet and it’s cool the sky becomes an ocean as it gives up to the blue I give myself to thinking as the sun dips down her head I wish that I was different, but I always make my bed it’s the end of a day such a lovely day the air is scented hawthorn and the hedgerow’s like a bride the wedding laid about me in dark and thorny pride I give myself to dreaming, what’s a dreamer left to do I wish that I was different ‘cos it makes me such a fool it’s the end of a day such a lovely day it’s the end of a day it’s been a lovely day I walk across these fields tonight with memory in my tread the paths are worn forever so much inside my head I give myself to everything and do the best I can but I was born a woman and you were born a man it’s the end of a day such a lovely day walk with me across the fields and maybe you will see the sky become the ocean, reaching out to me the roadside blushing roses blowing kisses on the breeze fools are made of promises, and I no more than these it’s the end of a day such a lovely day it’s the end of a day it’s been a lovely day it’s the end of a day such a lovely day it’s the end of a day it’s the end of a lovely, lovely, such a lovely, lovely day

Bainshaw 04:01
In the hills heather blooms in August sun With honey for the bee And the clouds against the bonny blue Blowing past from me And when I pause to think awhile I’m saddened to my heart So very few will see this view And love where I must part It does my spirits good To hear of Bogey’s Bonny Belle And know that music could And though the wind blows colder here The innocent are clean With not an ugly word to pass Then heaven lives in me There’s a cloud of white above the moss To softly catch the breeze No-one loves to count the loss Of jewels such as these And though I’ve travelled far and wide I could not find beyond The hills that bloom in August sun And what love has become And so I’ll wander through these years And o’er the winding burn And I will let the silence grow The world will always turn And in my heart I’ll walk the hills And I will always be Nearer to my truest love Nearer God to thee Nearer to my truest love Nearer God to thee
