You, you were all there was for me you were all there was to be and motion flowed, the circus went away from town we nearly had it all, we really had a ball but now I notice shadows where the moonlight fell on your hair, on your eyes shadows fall when the summer dies Chorus And my soul gallops on the lonely fell and my soul is solitary by the stony stell now there's no more to say and the curlew's gone away O my darling winter's here to stay Wild, you were always wild and free always running out on me you wanted to distance me why did this have to come about why couldn't we have worked it out I can't believe this has happened again the mist sinks down through forest rides gathering gloom as the daylight dies © Words & Music - Brenda Heslop (Ribbon Road Music)

Sweet Lady 02:55
O how the sun rises over the fell I hold your memory as clear as a bell Chorus Sweet lady, fair lady dearest friend to me ca' away, far away, here come bye away Dear is the face that adored me every day sweet were the hours when you helped me work the way O how the mist rises off the bonny flough clever and quick you were to spy that far-off yow The brown burn sparkles in the sharpened April sky the dark pools deepen in your kind and soulful eye O how the sun rises, O how the mist rises O how your soul rises to live another day O how my heart quickens, O how my spirits lift to see you live another day, but not this way Stylish and swift you moved with skill and grace and ease always your greatest gift to me your will to please © Words & Music - Brenda Heslop (Ribbon Road Music)

Show Me 03:30
Is there nothing I can do to fill the emptiness is there nothing I can say to make it right is there nowhere I can go to find the answer tonight, tonight is there anything I should have done is there anyone I should have been like is there anyway, O is there anyway, is there anyway to make it right Hold me like you did then, never let me go fill my days with sunshine and fill my nights with love Is there anyway that I can tell them are there any words to tell them why is there no-one's shoulder for me to cry on tonight, this lonely night I die as a man of sorrow I speak as a woman deceived is there anyone, O is there anyone who cares enough to make it right Hold me like you did then, never let me go fill my days with sunshine and fill my nights with love show me how you really want me, never, ever let me go fill my days with sunshine and fill my nights with love fill my days with sunshine and make my nights full of love © Words & Music - Brenda Heslop (Ribbon Road Music)

The rhythm of the seasons beat, feel the pulse of time no man can hold the clock back, the reason or the rhyme so close your eyes and feel the way the wind blows in your hair let his peace flood your soul, know that he will care for every sparrow that falls, he'll hear every call he'll weather the storm for you The rhythm of the seasons beat, the world is at your feet you're in the spring of life don't let me see you drag your feet so open up your heart to him, he loves you can't you tell he's the one to free you from your cold and lonely shell don't close the door on him, and you will see he'll weather the storm for you The rhythm of the seasons beat, the ocean's deep and wide there's no real choice, so ebb and flow with the tide don't try to understand it, just relax and let life flow he'll give you all the answers when you really want to know he'll set your course, take the oars when the waves have an angry roar he'll weather the storm for you Every sparrow that falls, he'll hear every call he'll weather the storm for you and you and you © Words & Music - Brenda Heslop (Ribbon Road Music)

O think of me lovingly, O lovingly as you go from me, as you go from me leaving me, leaving me, I'm hurting deep inside 'cos there's nothing more that I can do please come back loving me think of me lovingly O, I think of you longingly, O longingly as the past haunts me when you were loving me all the good times that we had but there's nothing more that I can do I think of you longingly please come back loving me Chorus O my love, remember me for all the wrongs you've done to me think of how we could have been me loving you and one day you loving me O I see it now, I'm losing you, O losing you I always knew this was how it would be me loving you, you leaving me now there is nothing more that I can do I think of you lovingly think of me lovingly © Words & Music - Brenda Heslop (Ribbon Road Music)

Hurt lies deep, as an ocean deep as the knife that drives in my heart hurt is the loss of a loved one gone as grief shifts with sand long gone Chorus And the clouds drift by and the waves roll on and the boat rocks my soul toward the sky and I rest my head on the pillow of my lord he can have it all Peace rests deep, as an ocean deep as this lonesome sleep within my heart peace is as high as the winter sky and still as the moon hangs in her pride Love digs deep, as an ocean deep as the love you're giving me love is content as the humble sheep and wild as the storm can be © Words & Music - Brenda Heslop (Ribbon Road Music)

Well it's a strange, lonely world and I'm doing the best that I can I've been waiting all of my life for you Well I've been in amongst the roses with the butterflies flitting between the clouds in the blue, blue skies hoping you would net me in your loving arms I've been waiting all of my life I've been searching for your love hoping you would notice me well I tried, but I can't earn my way back to you I've been floating in my dreams good and bad, nothing is what it seems now only you are real to me, only you © Words & Music - Brenda Heslop (Ribbon Road Music)

Too small a town to hold me too small a world to live too small a picture to receive too small a gift to give too dark for the night owl too shallow for the sea too low for the highest mountain far too small for me Chorus And though it's lonely high out here the air is rarified too small a frame for the photograph too much to deny Too slow for the fastest car too long a road by far too hard a tune for the nightingale too big to put in a jar too ripe for the harvest too loud for harmony too outrageous for everyone its far too small for me too dull for the finest hour far too far to fall too dry for the April shower I can still hear the call Too loud for harmony far too small for me too small a world to live too small a gift to give © Words & Music - Brenda Heslop (Ribbon Road Music)

All For You 03:48
My songs are all for you each note composed of you in perfect harmony I weave my broken dreams my heart poured out for you each heart-string plucked for you each moment we have known is sung for you Chorus And the lark still soars high overhead and the grouse still sleeps in her heather-bed and the curlew glides down the valley to her love, I love you The shepherd tends his sheep a lonely vigil to keep the collie hears his master's cry, do you hear mine the wind sings soft and low where does true love go the distance grows each time the seasons come and go The world was given for you all held dear because of you the rays of life on heathery hills in spring I sing, I still sing of you © Words & Music - Brenda Heslop (Ribbon Road Music)

Part Of Me 01:55
O the rolling hills of home where freedom's in the very air I breathe where heather grows far and free wide and true, they're part of me O the memories go back the lonely wind blows harsh across the fell the dreams I dreamt are past and gone time moved on, they're part of me Chorus Standing here by stony cairn I oft think of thee, my bonny bairn you're in the fabric of the fells love weaves it's mystic hold upon me yet As the swaledale rakes the fells relentlessly the seasons pass along the sun burns strong and then it's gone you're calling me in silent song O the openness of home where wildness is the very heart of me the peaty floughs I know so well the fox-holes stell, they're part of me O the memories flow back the lonely wind blows harsh across the fell the dreams I dreamt are past and gone time moved on, they're part of me © Words & Music - Brenda Heslop (Ribbon Road Music)

Grey Lady 05:07
My dear grey lady, sailing high over mossy floughs on sad misty evening my dear grey lady, gliding ghostly from the valley floor see how she soars o'er me Chorus And she takes my heart with her wherever she goes across the fell, just as the wind blows and we'll meet again when the curlew returns My lovely grey lady, so wild and free and high? locked in my memory my lovely grey lady, calling the tune of solitaire, I think of you longingly My regal grey lady, she's good and strong and fair mystery on air my regal grey lady, I'll fly with her all of my days and I'll keep singing harmony with her My sweet grey lady, she lives on the rise of the whaup hill she'll soon be coming home my sweet grey lady, she'll return on the westerly wind she'll bring my spring-time back © Words & Music - Brenda Heslop (Ribbon Road Music)
