onnie Tyler.midi 5-5th.march02 TRULY MADLY DEEPLY

By Savage Garden

I'll be your dream
I'll be your wish
I'll be your fantasy
I'll be your hope
I'll be your love
Be everything that you need
I love you more with every breath
Truly madly deeply do..
I will be strong
I will be faithful
Cos I'm counting on
A new beginning
A reason for living.
A deeper meaning
I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me...
And when the stars are shining brightly
In the velvet sky
I'll make a wish
Send it to heaven
Then make you want to cry..
The tears of joy
For all the pleasure and the certainty
That we're surrounded by
The comfort and protection of
The highest power
In lonely hours
The tears devour you..
I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me...
Oh can't you see it baby?
You don't have to close your eyes
Cos it's standing right before you.
All that you need will surely come...
I'll be your dream
I'll be your wish
I'll be your fantasy
I'll be your hope
I'll be your love
Be everything that you need
I'll love you more with every breath
Truly madly deeply do...
I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me...
I want to stand with you on a mountain....

.Nearer thy God to Thee (1915) Played at the end of the funeral Mass for Paddy T.Fennessey earlier today.

Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!
E’en though it be a cross that raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.

Refrain

Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!

Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down,
Darkness be over me, my rest a stone.
Yet in my dreams I’d be nearer, my God to Thee.

Refrain

There let the way appear, steps unto heav’n;
All that Thou sendest me, in mercy given;
Angels to beckon me nearer, my God, to Thee.

Refrain

Then, with my waking thoughts bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs Bethel I’ll raise;
So by my woes to be nearer, my God, to Thee.

Refrain

Or, if on joyful wing cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I’ll fly,
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.

Refrain

There in my Father’s home, safe and at rest,
There in my Savior’s love, perfectly blest;
Age after age to be, nearer my God to Thee.

Refrain

Help! The Beatles.... Written by John Lennon. midi 24th - 28th feb02

Help! I need somebody,
Help! Not just anybody,
Help! You know I need someone,
Help!


When I was young, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way,
But now these days are gone and I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors,
Help me if you can, I'm feeling down,
And I do appreciate you being around,
Help me get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please please help me?


And now my life had change in oh so many ways,
My independence seems to vanish in the haze,
But ev'ry now and then I feel so insecure,
I know that I just need you like I've never done before.
Help me if you can, I'm feeling down,
And I do appreciate you being around,
Help me get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please help me?


When I was younger so much younger than today,

Streets of London midi and words ...Ralph McTell. 21/22nd feb02.

Have you seen the old man in the closed down market
Kicking up the paper with his worn out shoes
In his eyes you see no pride
And held loosely by his side,
yesterday's paper telling yesterday's news

How can you tell me you're lonely
And say, for you, that the sun don't shine
Let me take you by the hand
And lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind

Have you seen the old gal who walks the streets of London
Dirt in her hair and her clothes in rags
She's no time for talkin, she just keeps right on walkin
Carryin her home in two carrier bags

In the all night cafe at a quarter past eleven
Same old man sitting there on his own
Looking at the world over the rim of his teacup
Each tea lasts an hour and he goes home alone

Have you seen the old man outside the seaman's mission
Memory fading like the ribbons that he wears
In our winter city, the rain cries a little pity
For one more forgotten hero in a world that doesn't care

last night the 20th.February 2002 at 8.02pm the digital time was 20 02 20 02 2002.

Don't Leave Me this Way.

..by the Communards.

All of my life, all of my life
I've been searching for a love like ours
Somewhere to stay, somewhere safe in your arms
I was so sure
Are you really saying your heart's changing
Do you really mean goodbye

Don't leave me this way, no, no
Don't tell me it's over
We've only begun and our love is so young
You're leading me nowhere
Don't leave me this way
Don't leave me this way

Say what's on your mind, one thing at a time
And I promise you we'll talk it through
Don't walk away, there's so much more to say
Though my words seem lost on you
Can't believe you're talking like we're just friends
Can't you see the tears I cry

Don't leave me this way, no, no
Don't tell me it's over
We've only begun and our love is so young
You're leading me nowhere
Don't leave me this way
Don't leave me this way

Are you really saying your heart's changing
Do you really mean it this time
Baby

Don't leave me this way, oh no
Don't tell me it's over
We've only begun and our love is so young
You're leading me nowhere
Don't leave me this way
Don't leave me this way
No, don't tell me that it's over
We've only begun and our love is so young
Don't leave me now

Don't leave me, don't leave me this way (don't leave me this way)
Don't leave me, don't leave me this way (oh you're gonna leave me now)
Don't leave me, don't leave me this way
Don't leave me, don't leave me this way

Don't leave me this way
If you'll just take a little bit of time
You just might wanna change your mind
Don't leave me this way
Don't leave me this way

She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain   She'll be comin' round the mountain When she comes,  (When she comes). She'll be comin' round the mountain  When she comes, (When she comes).  She'll be comin' round the mountain,  She'll be comin' round the mountain, She'll be comin' round the mountain,  When she comes,  (When she comes).  She'll be drivin' six white horses  When she comes,  (When she comes).  She'll be drivin' six white horses  When she comes,  (When she comes).  She'll be drivin' six white horses,  She'll be drivin' six white horses,  She'll be drivin' six white horses,  When she comes,  (When she comes). 

 

Suspicious Minds.... Elvis

Suspicious Minds
Elvis Presley/FineYoug Cannibals

We're caught in a trap;
I can't walk out
because I love you too much, baby.
Why can't you see,
what you're doing to me,
when you don't believe a word I say?

CHORUS:
We can't go on together,
with Suspicious Minds;
and we can't build our dreams,
on Suspicious Minds.

So, if an old friend I know,
drops by to say hello,
would I still see suspicion in your eyes?
Here we go again,
asking where I've been.
You can see these tears are real I'm crying.

CHORUS

Oh, let our love survive,
I'll dry the tears from your eyes.
Let's don't let a good thing die,
when honey, you know I've never, lied to you;
Mmm, yeah, yeah!

We're caught in a trap;
I can't walk out
because I love you too much, baby...

Mentes Desconfiadas
Elvis Presley/FineYoug Cannibals

Nós estamos presos numa armadilha,
Eu não consigo sair
Porque te amo demais, querida.
Por quê você não percebe
O que está fazendo para mim,
Quando não confia numa palavra que eu digo?

REFRÃO:
Não podemos continuar juntos,
Com mentes desconfiadas;
E não podemos construir nossos sonhos
Sobre mentes desconfiadas.

Então, se uma velha amiga que conheço,
Fizer uma visita para dizer "oi",
Eu ainda veria a desconfiança nos seus olhos?
Lá vamos nós, de novo
Perguntando onde estive,
Você pode perceber que estas lágrimas são reais, estou chorando.

REFRÃO

Deixe nosso amor sobreviver,
Eu enxugarei as lágrimas dos seus olhos.
Não vamos deixar uma coisa boa morrer,
Quando, querida, você sabe que eu nunca menti para você.
Sim, sim!

Nós estamos presos numa armadilha,
Eu não consigo sair
Porque te amo demais, querida...

I re-examine the city celebrates some and is delirious about it Suffocating under the sun and under the joy And I hear in the musiqu' the cries, the laughter Which éclat' NT and rebondiss' NT around me And, lost among these people who hustle me Étourdie, disabled, I remain there When sudden I am turned over, it is moved back And the foul' comes to throw me between its arms... Carried by the crowd Which trails us, involves us Écrasés one against the other We form one body And the flood without effort pushes Us connected one and the other And leaves us both Épanouis, enivrés and happy Entraînés by the crowd Which springs and which dances insane a farandole Our two hands remain welded And sometimes raised Our two intertwined bodies fly away And fall down both Épanouis, enivrés and happy. And the joy splashed by its smile transpierces Me and flashes back at the bottom of me But suddenly I push a cry among the laughter When the foul' vien to tear off it among my arms... Carried by the crowd Which trails us, us involves moves away Us one from the other I fight and I debates But the sound of its voice is choked in the rir' S of the others And I shout of pain Of fury and of rage and I cry And trailed by the crowd Which springs and which dances insane a farandole I am carried with far And I contract my fists Maudissant the foul' which steals me the homm' that it had given me And that I never found...

LA FOULE (The Crowd)Edith Piaf (France)

Je revois la ville en fête et en délire Suffoquant sous le soleil et sous la joie Et j'entends dans la musique les cris, les rires Qui éclatent et rebondissent autour de moi Et perdue parmi ces gens qui me bousculent Étourdie, désemparée, je reste là Quand soudain, je me retourne, il se recule, Et la foule vient me jeter entre ses bras... Emportés par la foule qui nous traîne Nous entraîne Écrasés l'un contre l'autre Nous ne formons qu'un seul corps Et le flot sans effort Nous pousse, enchaînés l'un et l'autre Et nous laisse tous deux Épanouis, enivrés et heureux. Entraînés par la foule qui s'élance Et qui danse Une folle farandole Nos deux mains restent soudées Et parfois soulevés Nos deux corps enlacés s'envolent Et retombent tous deux Épanouis, enivrés et heureux... Et la joie éclaboussée par son sourire Me transperce et rejaillit au fond de moi Mais soudain je pousse un cri parmi les rires Quand la foule vient l'arracher d'entre mes bras... Emportés par la foule qui nous traîne Nous entraîne Nous éloigne l'un de l'autre Je lutte et je me débats Mais le son de sa voix S'étouffe dans les rires des autres Et je crie de douleur, de fureur et de rage Et je pleure... Entraînée par la foule qui s'élance Et qui danse Une folle farandole Je suis emportée au loin Et je crispe mes poings, maudissant la foule qui me vole L'homme qu'elle m'avait donné Et que je n'ai jamais retrouvé...

Diego by Johnny Halliday. midi

Diego libre dans sa tête


Derrière des barreaux
Pour quelques mots
Qu'il pensait si fort

Dehors il fait chaud
Des milliers d'oiseaux
S'envolent sans effort

Quel est ce pays
Où frappe la nuit
La loi du plus fort

Diego, libre dans sa tête
Derrière sa fenètre
S'endort peut-être

Et moi
Qui dans ma vie
Qui chante et qui rit
Je pense à lui

Oh ! Diego
Libre dans sa tête
Derrière sa fenêtre
S'endort peut-être

Quel est ce pays
Où passe la nuit
La loi du plus fort

Oh ! Diego
Libre dans sa tête
Derrière sa fenètre
Déjà mort peut-être...

Three words that are divine
And now my dear
I'm waiting to hear
The words that make you mine

I love you, I love you

I love you, I love you
Three words that are divine
And now my dear
I'm waiting to hear
The words that make you mine

C’est le bonheur pour moi

 

Eternal Flame by the Bangles

Close your eyes, give me your hand, darling
Do you feel my heart beating
Do you understand
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming
Is this burning an eternal flame

I believe it's meant to be, darling
I watch you when you are sleeping
You belong with me
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame

Say my name
Sun shines through the rain
A whole life so lonely
And then you come and ease the pain
I don't want to lose this feeling
Is this burning an eternal flame

Chama Eterna
Bangles

Feche seus olhos, me dê sua mão, querido.
Você sente meu coração pulsando?
Você compreende?
Você sente o mesmo?
Estou apenas sonhando?
Isto que está ardendo é uma chama eterna?

Eu acredito que está destinado a acontecer, querido.
Eu te observo quando você está dormindo,
Seu lugar é comigo.
Você sente o mesmo?
Estou apenas sonhando
Ou isto que está ardendo é uma chama eterna?

Diga meu nome,
O sol brilha em meio à chuva...
Uma vida toda tão sozinha,
E então você chega e alivia a dor.
Eu não quero perder este sentimento.
Isto que está ardendo é uma chama eterna?

 

Time After Time
Cyndi Lauper

Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick
and think of you
Caught up in circles, confusion is nothing new
Flashback, warm nights,
almost left behind
suitcase of memories,
time after

sometimes you picture me
I'm walking too far ahead
You're calling to me,
I can't hear what you've said
Then you say - go slow - I fall behind -
the second hand unwinds

CHORUS:
If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you - I'll be waiting
Time after time

After my picture fades and darkness has turned to gray
watching through windows,
you're wondering if I'm O.K.
Secrets stolen from deep inside
the drum beats out of time

CHORUS

time after time
time after time
time after time
time after time

Vez Após Vez
Cyndi Lauper

Deitada em minha cama, eu ouço o tique-taque do relógio
e penso em você.
Presa em círculos, a confusão não é novidade.
Lembranças, noites calorosas
Quase abandonadas lá atrás,
Uma mala com recordações
Tempos depois...

Às vezes você me imagina,
Eu estou caminhando muito adiante.
Você está gritando para mim,
Não consigo ouvir o que você disse.
Então você diz: "vá devagar" - eu fico prá trás,
O segundo ponteiro do relógio gira ao inverso...

REFRÃO:
Se você estiver perdido, pode procurar e me encontrará,
Vez após vez...
Se você cair, eu te segurararei, estarei esperando,
Vez após vez...

Depois que minha imagem desvanece e a escuridão fica cinza,
Observando pelas janelas
Você quer saber se estou bem.
Segredos roubados bem do interior,
O tambor bate sem ritmo...

REFRÃO

Vez após vez,
Vez após vez,
Vez após vez,
Vez após vez...

7.02.02 Wild Irish Rose (1899 ) by request for Charles Gaffney who chose it for his good friend.. Jim Flynn in Waterbury, CT. USA This was his Mother's favorite. She was born in Ireland.  

If you'll listen, I'll sing you a sweet little song,
Of a flower that's now drooped and dead,
Yet dearer to me, yes, than all of its mates,
Tho' each holds aloft its proud head.
'Twas given to me by a girl that I know,
Since we've met, faith, I've known no repose,
She is dearer by far than the world's brightest star,
And I call her my wild Irish Rose.
My wild Irish Rose

,

The sweetest flow'r that grows,
You may search ev'rywhere,
But none can compare
With my wild Irish Rose.
My wild Irish Rose,
The dearest flow'r that grows,
And some day for my sake,
She may let me take
The bloom from my wild Irish Rose.


They may sing of their roses which, by other names,
Would smell just as sweetly, they say,
But I know that my Rose would never consent
To have that sweet name taken away.
Her glances are shy when e'er I pass by
The bower, where my true love grows;
And my one wish has been that some day I may win
The heart of my wild Irish Rose.
My wild Irish Rose,
The sweetest flow'r that grows,
You may search ev'rywhere,
But none can compare
With my wild Irish Rose.
My wild Irish Rose,
The dearest flow'r that grows,
And some day for my sake,
She may let me take
The bloom from my wild Irish Rose.

LOVE. (The second Reading at the Wedding.)

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels,
but have not
love,
I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

And if I have prophetic powers,
and understand all mysteries and all knowledge,
and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains,
but have not
love,
I am nothing.

If I give away all I have,
and if I deliver my body to be burned,
but have not
love,
I gain nothing.

Love is patient and kind,
Love is not jealous or boastful,
It is not arrogant or rude.

Love does not insist on its own way;
It is not irritable or resentful,
It does not rejoice at wrong,
but rejoices in right.

Love bears all things,
Believes all things,
Hopes all things,
Endures all things.
Love never ends;

As for prophecies,
they will pass away;
As for tongues, they will cease;
as for knowledge,
it will pass away


First Letter of Paul to the Corinthians-31_13:8

Angels ..................Robbie Williams

I sit and wait
does an angel contemplate my fate
and do they know
the places where we go
when we're grey and old
'cos I've been told
that salvation lets their wings unfold
so when I'm lying in my bed
thoughts running through my head
and I feel that love is dead
I'm loving angels instead

CHORUS:
And through it all she offers me protection
a lot of love and affection
whether I'm right or wrong
and down the waterfall
wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
when I come to call she won't forsake me
I'm loving angels instead

When I'm feeling weak
and my pain walks down a one way street
I look above
and I know I'll always be blessed with love
and as the feeling grows
she breathes flesh to my bones
and when love is dead
I'm loving angels instead

Chorus x 2

Because You Loved Me
Celine Dion

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful baby
You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me through through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I'm grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don't know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You've been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

All That I Need lyrics
Boyzone

I was lost and alone,
Trying to grow,
Making my way down that long winding road,
Had no reason no rhyme,
Like a song out of time,
And there you were standing in front of my eyes,
How could I be such a fool?
To let go of love and break all of the rules,
Girl when you walked out that door,
Left a hole in my heart and now I know for sure.

You're the air that I breathe,
Girl you're all that I need,
And I want to thank you lady,
You're the words that I read,
You're the light that I see,
And your love is all that I need.

I was searching in vain,
Playing a game,
Had no-one else but myself left to blame,
You came into my world,
No diamonds or pearls,
Could ever replace what you gave to me girl,
Just like a castle of sand,
Girl I almost let love slip right out of my hands,
And just like a flower needs rain,
I will stand by your side though the joy and the pain.

You're the air that I breathe,
Girl you're all that I need,
And I want to thank you lady,
You're the words that I read,
You're the light that I see,
And your love is all that I need.

You're the air that I breathe,
Girl your all that I need,
And I want to thank you lady,
You're the words that I read,
(words that I read)
You're the light that I see,
(you're the light that I see)
And your love is all that I need,
(all that I need)
You're the song that I sing,
(song that I sing)
Girl you're my everything,
(girl you're my everything)
And I want to thank you lady,

You're all that that I need girl,
You're the air that I breathe, yeah,
And I want to thank you lady,
(I want to thank you)
You're the words that I read girl,
Your love is all that I need, yeah,
And I want to thank you,
(And I want to thank you lady).

A thousand stars in the skies, like the stars in your eyes

They say to me, that there'll never be

No other love, like yours for me

A thousand stars in the skies, make me realise

You are the one love, that I'll adore

Tell me you love me, tell me you're mine once more

Each night I count the stars in the sky

Hoping that you are not telling me lies

You're with me tonight, I'm captured by your charms

Oh pretty baby, let me hold you in my arms

A thousand stars in the skies, make me realise

You are the one love, that I'll adore

Tell me you love me, tell me you're mine once more

Bitch by Merridith Brooks...midi and lyrics by request...

Hate the world today
your so good to me i know
but i can't change
tried to tell you but you look at me like maybe I'm an angel underneath
innocent and sweet
yesterday I cried
must have been relieved
to see the softer side
i can understand how you'd
be so confused
I don't envy you
I'm a little bit of everything
all rolled into one

chorus:
i'm a bitch
i'm a lover
i'm a child
i'm a mother
i'm a sinner
i'm a saint
i do not feel ashamed
i'm your hell
i'm your dream
i'm nothin' in between
you know you wouldn't want it any other way

so take me as i am
this may mean you'll have to be
a stronger man
rest assured that when
i start to make you nervous
and i'm going to extremes
tomorrow i will change
and today won't mean a thing

chorus:
i'm a bitch
i'm a lover
i'm a child
i'm a mother
i'm a sinner
i'm a saint
i do not feel ashamed
i'm your hell
i'm your dream
i'm nothin' in between
you know you wouldn't want it any other way

i'm a bitch
i'm a tease
i'm a goddess on my knees
when you're hurt
when you suffer
i'm your angel undercover
i've been numb
i'm revived
can say i'm not alive
you know you wouldn't want it any other way

ooh,ooh,oh (repeat until fade)

It Doesn't Matter Anymore ...Buddy Holly.midi lyrics

There you go and baby, here am I.

Well, you left me here so I could sit and cry.

Well, golly gee, what have you done to me?

I guess it doesn't matter any more

Do you remember baby, last September

How you held me tight, each and every night

Well, oh baby, how you drove me crazy I guess it doesn't matter any more

There's no use in me a-cryin'.

I've done everything and I'm sick of tryin'. I've thrown away my nights, Wasted all my days over you.

Now you go your way and I'll go mine

Now and forever till the end of time

I'll find somebody new and baby, we'll say we're through

And you won't matter anymore.

The Prayer of St. Francis Italy 1182 – 1226 Sebastian Temple...midi dec 16th.

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow your love,
where there is injury, your pardon, Lord,
and where there's doubt, new faith in you.

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there's despair in life, let me bring hope,
where there is darkness, only light,
and where there's sadness, ever joy.

O Master, grant that I may never seek
so much to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
in giving to all men that we receive,
and in dying that we are born to eternal life.

 

When You Say Nothing At All! by Ronan Keating .

from "Notting Hill 'film soundtrack"

It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word you can light up the dark
Try as I may I could never explain
What I hear when you don't say a thing

Chorus
The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you'll catch me where ever I fall
Now you say it best ... when you say nothing at all.

All day long I can hear people talking out loud
But when you hold me near you drown out the crowd
Try as they may could never define
What's being said between your heart and mine

Chorus

Believe...by Sher nov 30th.01

No matter how hard I try
You keep pushing me aside
And I can't break through
There's no talking to you
It's so
sad that you're leaving
It takes
time to believe it
But after all is said and done
You're gonna be the lonely one

Do you believe in life after love?
I can feel something inside me say
I really don't think you're strong enough
Do you believe in life after love?
I can feel something inside me say
I really don't think you're strong enough

What am I supposed to do?
Sit around and wait for you?
Well I can't do that
And there's no turning back
I need
time to move on
I need
love to feel strong
'Cause I've got time to think it through
And maybe I'm too good for you

Better than all the rest...Tina Turner midi 28th.Nov 01 .

I call you when I need you, my heart's on fire
You come to me, come to me wild and wild
When you come to me
Give me everything I need
Give me a lifetime promises and a world of dreams
Speak a language of love like you know what it means
And it can't be wrong
Take my heart and make it strong baby

 You're simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart, and hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead

 In your heart I see the star of every night and every day
In your eyes I get lost, I get washed away
Just as long as I'm here in your arms
I could be in no better place

You're simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart, and hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead

 Each time you leave me I start losing control
You're walking away with my heart and my soul
I can feel you even when I'm alone
Oh baby, don't let go

But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right

VISITING IRELAND FROM SUNNY CALIFORNIA! removed Nov 25th. after some weeks.

Hi to accountant Nick Resurreccion from California who has spent the last four months touring Europe by bicycle arrived in Ireland just before the September 11th. New York tragedy. He told me he spent most of his first week here watching the awful news on TV .

I caught up with Nick at the Kilmorna Hostel, Lismore, where on the lighter side, he told me he got a little drunk in Wales a couple of weeks ago and lost his beard with the help of a few friends he had met earlier in the day, here in County Waterford he might be in for a few more suprises!

Update!

I believe that the heart does go on
Once more, you opened the door
And you're here in my heart and
My heart will go on and on


Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go til we're gone
Love was when I loved you
One true time, I hold to
In my life will always go on

Near, far, where ever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more, you opened the door
And you're here in my heart and
My heart will go on and on

You're here, there's nothing I fear
And I know that my heart will go on
We'll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart and
my heart will go on and on.

Delaney's Donkey! .........Words below

Delaney had a donkey everyone admired, Tempo'rily lazy and permanently tired A leg at ev'ry corner balancing its head, And a tail to let you know which end it wanted to be fed Riley slyly said ""We've underrated it, Why not train it?" Then he took a rag Rubbed it, scrubbed it, oiled and embrocated it, Got it to the post and when the starter dropped the flag There was Riley pushing it, shoving it, shushing it Hogan, Logan and ev'ryone in town Lined up attacking it, shoving it and smacking it

They might as well have tried to push the Town Hall down! The donkey was eyeing them, openly defying them Winking, blinking, twisting out of place Riley reversing it, ev'rybody cursing it The day Delaney's donkey ran the half-mile race

The muscles of the mighty never known to flinch, Didn't move the donkey quarter of an inch Delaney lay exhausted, hanging round its throat With a grip just like a Scotchman on a twenty shilling note Starter, Carter lined up all the rest of 'em. When it saw them, it was willing then Raced up, braced up, ready for the best of 'em.

They started off to cheer it but it changed its mind again There was Riley pushing it, shoving it and shushing it Hogan, Logan and Mary Ann Macgraw, She started poking it, grabbing it and choking it It kicked her in the bustle and it laughed ""Hee - Haw!"" The whigs and conservatives, radical superlatives Libr'rals and Tories, they hurried to the place Stood there in unity, helping the community To push Delaney's donkey in the halfmile race

The crowd began to cheer it, Rafferty, the judge Came to assist them, still it wouldn't budge The jockey who was riding, little John McGee, Was so thoroughly disgusted he went home to get his tea Hagan, Fagan students of psychology, Swore they'd shift it with some dynamite

Bought it, brought it, then without apology The donkey gave a sneeze and blew the darn stuff out of sight There was Riley pushing it, shoving it and shushing it Hogan, Logan all the bally crew, P'lice, and auxil'ary, the Garrison Artillery The Second Inniskilling's and the Life Guards too

They seized it and harried it, picked it up and carried it Cheered it, steered it to the winning place Bookies all drew aside, and committed suicide Because Delaney's donkey won the halfmile race

Words by John Newton 1779Amazing Grace dedicated to Mary Hayes (see story above).....

Amazing Grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind, but now I see.
 
'Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear,
And Grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.
 
Through many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come.
'Tis Grace hath brought me safe thus far
And Grace will lead me home.
 
The Lord has promised good to me.
His Word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.
 
When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we'd first begun.

Tracy Chapman (1988) ...Baby Can I Hold You!

Sorry
Is all that you can't say
Years gone by and still
Words don't come easily
Like sorry like sorry

Forgive me
Is all that you can't say
Years gone by and still
Words don't come easily
Like forgive me... forgive me

But you can say baby
Baby can I hold you tonight
Maybe if I told you the right words
At the right time you'd be mine

I love you

Is all that you can't say
Years gone by and still
Words don't come easily
Like I love you... I love you

FROM ANNIE (MARIE) RYAN IN AUSTRALIA, ' I accidently found this site and I find the material very interesting. My fathers family is from Waterford and I have recently returned back to Australia ,but intend to spend my honeymoon in Ireland next year.I was hoping to track down any girls who attended the Mercy Convont in 1980-82 who might remember the young Aussie who couldn't speak a word of Gaelic. I remember one girl whose name was Elaine who lived in Ballybeg. It would bi great to hear from any of them, or any one who lived in Comeragh Green, Lismore Park who may remember the Australian family who tried to teach the kids in the street Aussie Rules for football and cricket. Any help you could give me would be more than appreciated. Regard, Annie [Marie] Ryan. ....


IGOLETTO......ARIAS....by Giuseppe Verdi ...born Oct 10 ...1813. This wonderful composer had many a sadness in his life as you can read by clicking this link................midi link....http://www.melodylane.net

Some of the words from Act 1 ....................Caro nome "Sweet Name"
Sweet name, you who made my heart throb for the first time, you must always remind me of
the pleasures of love!

My desire will fly to you on the wings of thought and my last breath
will be yours, my beloved.

Some of the words from Act 3 La Donna è Mobile "Woman Is Fickle"
He who trusts her with his heart, o wretch! is always miserable. Woman is fickle, a feather to the wind, no orator or thinker.

Sweet name, you who made my heart throb for the first time, you must always remind me of
the pleasures of love! ...My desire will fly to you on the wings of thought and my last breath
will be yours, my beloved.

AVE Maria.. ( Schubert ) .....Special Sunday request for Sharon in Florida, thanks for the nice messages Sharron.

'Lower Botany,' New Street, Lismore, County Waterford.


"You show me the path of life. In your presence there is fullness of
joy; in your right hand are pleasures forevermore."  ~Psalm 16:11

.=:  M E D I T A T I O N   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=. 4th.November 01


"In your presence there is fullness of joy; in your right hand are
pleasures forevermore."  We do not find true happiness by looking for
it.  Seeking pleasure does not bring happiness in the long run, only
disillusionment.  We need not seek to have this fullness of joy by
seeking pleasure.  It cannot be done that way.  Happiness is a
by-product of living the right kind of life.  True happiness comes as a
result of living in all respects the way we believe God wants us to
live, with regard to ourselves and to other people.

GONE FOREVER!   

 Is this possibly the last view of New York the terrorists saw before they  crashed into the World Trade Centre?   After all the recent dramatic photos and TV footage of the twin towers disaster, it’s hard to remember what East Manhattan looked like only one mony one month ago.

As a sad reminder, I have just received this amazing postcard from Sharon Ann Murray who lives in Florida, that she purchased on a trip to New York a short time before the skyline there changed forever.

Why did it happen?

Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life at Last I've Found You! (Another of my dad's favourites) (sequenced by Jill at http://www.melodylane.net 3nov 01)

Song from the operetta "Naughty Marietta" (1910)
Sung by Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy in the 1935 film version

Ah! sweet mystery of life, at last I've found thee!
Ah! I know at last the secret of it all!
All the longing, seeking, striving, waiting, yearning,
The burning hopes, the joy and idle tears that fall!

For 'tis love, and love alone, the world is seeking;
And 'tis love, and love alone that can repay!
'Tis the answer, 'tis the end and all of living,
For it is love alone that rules for aye!

Ah! sweet mystery of life, at last I've found thee!
Ah! I know at last the secret of it all!
'Tis the answer, 'tis the end and all of living!
For it is love alone that rules for aye!

For 'tis love, and love alone, the world is seeking;
And 'tis love, and love alone that can repay!
'Tis the answer, 'tis the end and all of living,
For it is love alone that rules for aye! .....


Its All Coming Back To Me Now! ..... (Meat Loaf) Celine Dion. 2nov 01

If you forgive me all this ...If I forgive you all that ....We forgive and forget... And it's all coming back to me ...When you see me like this ...And when I see you like that.... We see what we want to see ...All coming back to me I can barely recall ...but it's all coming back to me now.

There were moments of gold ...And there were flashes of light ..There were things we'd never do again ...But then they'd always seemed right ...There were nights of endless pleasure... It was more than all your laws allow Baby, baby, baby...

When I touch you like this ....And I hold you like that ....It's so hard to believe but It's all coming back to me...etc

When I Grow Too Old To Dream- words by Oscar Hammerstein II, music by Sigmund Romberg

When I grow too old to dream
I'll have you to remember
When I grow too old to dream
Your love will live in my heart

So, kiss me my sweet
And so let us part
And when I grow too old to dream
That kiss will live in my heart

And when I grow too old to dream
Your love will live in my heart

'When I grow too old to dream, I'll still have you to remember.'

This old fashioned song was one of my late dad's favourites.

Maybe we could even get to see each other sometime, Germany isn’t that far away... If someone can help Joanne and me get into contact, It would be really be great!   Luv, Petra          (Petra Finkenzeller.) Please email Kiely if you know her.

Words as requested....by Mary in New York.

Death is nothing at all I have slipped away into the next room I am I, and you are you ....Whatever we were to each other, That, we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name Speak to me in the easy way Which you always used

Put no difference in your tone.

Wear no  forced air of solemnity or sorrow ...Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.

Pray, smile, think of me, pray for me.. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.... Let it be spoken without effort Without the trace of a shadow in it

Life means all that it ever meant... It is the same as it ever was ...There is unbroken continuity.

Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight ? I am waiting for you Somewhere very near ...Just around the corner,

All is well.

by Henry Scott Holland (1847-1918)  Canon of St Paul's Cathedral

Received last week from a woman called Mary who works in a resturant in Upper East Side New York who wrote, (Sept 01)

I looked through your site and liked it very much.  I was wondering if you know of a poem from the Carmelite Monastery in Waterford, Ireland.    The poem reads in part as such:           "Death is but nothing at all.  I have only stepped away into the next room. Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way you used to. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together." I would like to have the whole verse of the poem if I may, so please, if you know of it, I ask you again, Please, send it to me.   I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  May God Bless You Always.                                                                           Mary  :)

Please email Kiely if you can help.

Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace .....Words by St. Francis of Assisi. plus midi

Make me a channel of your peace. Where there is hatred let me bring your love; Where there is injury, your pardon, Lord; And where there’s doubt, true faith in you. Oh, master, grant that I may never seek So much to be consoled as to console; To be understood as to understand; To be loved, as to love with all my soul. Make me a Channel of your peace. Where there’s despair in life let me bring hope; Where there is darkness, only light; And where there’s sadness, ever joy Oh, master, grant that I may never seek So much to be consoled as to console; To be understood as to understand; To be loved, as to love with all my soul. Make me a channel of your peace. It is in pardoning that we are pardoned, In giving to all men that we receive; And in dying that we’re born to eternal life.
