Lyrics

Book Of Days (English lyrics)

from Far And Away film soundtrack

Roma Ryan

One day, one night, one moment,
my dreams could be, tomorrow.
One step, one fall, one falter,
east or west, over earth or by ocean.
One way to be my journey,
this way could be my Book of Days.

Ó lá go lá, mo thuras,
an bealach fada romham.
Ó oíche go hoíche, mo thuras,
na scéalta nach mbeidh a choích.

No day, no night, no moment,
can hold me back from trying.
I'll flag, I'll fall, I'll falter,
I'll find my day may be, Far and Away.
Far and Away.

One day, one night, one moment,
with a dream to believe in.
One step, one fall, one falter,
and a new earth across a wide ocean.
This way became my journey,
this day ends together, Far and Away.

This day ends together, Far and Away.
Far and Away.

Adeste, Fideles

Traditional

Adeste, fideles laeti triumphantes;
Venite, venite in Bethlehem;
Natum videte regem angelorum:

Venite, adoremus,
Venite, adoremus,
Venite, adoremus, dominum!

Deum de Deo, lumen de lumine,
Gestant puellae viscera;
Deum verum, genitum non factum.

Venite, adoremus,
Venite, adoremus,
Venite, adoremus, dominum!

(Cantet nunc io chorus angelorum,
Cantet nunc aula caelestium,)
Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Venite, adoremus,
Venite, adoremus,
Venite, adoremus, dominum!

Translation

Come, ye faithful
Be present, faithful, joyful, triumphant
Come, come into Bethlehem
Behold the arisen, king of angels

Chorus:
Come, let us adore
Come, let us adore
Come, let us adore the Lord

God of God, light of light
He abhors not the Virgin's womb
Very God, begotten, not created

(Chorus)

Glory to God in the highest

(Chorus)

Christmas Secrets

Roma Ryan

Underneath a winter sky
A distant train sings out the miles
And so I wonder, can it be
Will every mile bring you to me?

A promise made may still come true
So I am waiting here for you
If you don't come, what will I do?
Whom shall I tell my secrets to?

Christmas bells ring out their chimes
I hear them echo through the night
And moonlight shines upon the road
And trembles on the falling snow

I look into the midnight blue
So many stars I never knew
If you don't come, what will I do?
Whom shall I tell my secrets to?

(2x)

The Magic Of The Night

Roma Ryan

When the stars are in the skies
Make a wish, then close your eyes
Are you dreaming? Angels singing
Everything is right
It's the magic of the night

Far horizons made of snow
Bring the hopes each child will know
Someone's dreaming, bells are ringing
Everything is white
It's the magic of the night

High up in the sky
Can you see a shining light?
Can it be that we can see
An angel who is flying, flying?

Can an angel lose their way
Who of us on earth can say?
Someone's dreaming, angels singing
Everything is right
It's the magic of the night

High up in the sky
Can you see a shining light?
Can it be that we can see
An angel who is flying, flying?

When the stars are in the skies
Make a wish, then close your eyes
Are you dreaming? Bells are ringing
Angels are in flight
It's the magic of the night
Angels are in flight
It's the magic of the night

We Wish You A Merry Christmas

Roma Ryan

We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
And a happy new year
(2x)

Good tidings we bring
To you and your kin
We wish you a merry Christmas
And a happy new year

We all want some figgy pudding
We all want some figgy pudding
We all want some figgy pudding
So bring some right here

We won't go until we get some
We won't go until we get some
We won't go until we get some
So bring some right here

Good tidings we bring
To you and your kin
We wish you a merry Christmas
And a happy new year
(2x)

We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
And a happy new year
(2x)

Storms In Africa II (English lyrics)

This is the second version of that song, originally in Gaelic.

Roma Ryan

Though I walk through
warm sands in Africa
winds will grow soon
to storms in Africa.

How far to go
I cannot say.
How many more
will journey this way?

Dark skies fall on
black earth and ivory.
Far from your sun
clouds now close over me.

How far to go
I cannot say.
How many more
will journey this way?

Storms have come!
rains wash the earth away
Dark skies fall down
into another day.
Rains have now come
from storms in Africa
Time will go on
through Storms in Africa

Oíche Chiúin

Traditional

Oíche chiúin, oíche Mhic Dé,
Cách 'na suan dís araon.
Dís is dílse 'faire le spéis
Naíon beag, leanbh ceansa 'gus caomh.

Críost, 'na chodladh go sámh.
Críost, 'na chodladh go sámh.

Oíche chiúin, oíche Mhic Dé,
Aoirí ar dtús chuala 'n scéal.
Allelúia aingeal ag glaoch.
Cantain suairc i ngar is i gcéin.

Críost an Slánaitheoir Féin.
Críost an Slánaitheoir Féin.

Translation

Silent Night
Silent night, night of God's son,
Everyone is asleep, the pair together.
The most faithful pair, watching with hope
A little baby, a mild and gentle child.

Christ, calmly asleep.
Christ, calmly asleep.

Silent night, night of God's son,
Shepherds were first to hear the tale.
The angels crying out Alleluia.
Lovely chanting near and far.

Christ, the saviour himself.
Christ, the saviour himself.

'S Fagaim Mo Bhaile

Roma Ryan

Maidin is tús an lae
Is fágaim mo bhaile
Tá mo chroíse go brón
Is fad ar shiúl m'óige

Oíche is mé liom féin
Spéartha dubh go domhain, a choích
Ag cuimhneach ar laethanta a bhí
Gan ghá agus gan ghruaim
Eistim leis an ghaoth
Uaigneas mór, go deo, a choích

Deireadh an turas mór
Táim brónach, buartha 's briste
I mo dhiaidh nach mbeidh níos mó
Ach, tá sé i ndán dúinn, a pháistí

Is fada anois an lá
A d'fhág mé mo bhaile
Níl áthas i mo chroí
Níl ann ach an marbh.

Translation

And I Leave my Home

Morning and the start of the day
and I leave my home.
My heart is grieving
and my youth is long past.

Chorus:
Night and I am alone.
Endless deep black skies.
Recollecting the days that were
carefree and happy
I listen to the wind.
Great loneliness, forever, and ever.

The end of the great journey,
I am sad, sorrowful, and broken.
After me, there will be nothing more,
but, it is our fate, children.
but, it is our fate, children.

Chorus

Long ago was the day
that I left my home.
There is no joy in my life.
Nothing is left except the dead.
Repeat last line

I May Not Awaken

Roma Ryan

When the warmth of the day becomes the night
Who could sleep beneath a strange moonlight?
No guiding star
So far from home

Walked the way o' promise to find but snow
Throughout, the voice of the winds brings nothing more
Than low echoes
So far from home

Even from a child
A wish is not enough
For me, for me the sky may fall
And even from a child
A dream is not enough
Could be, could be the sky may fall
Could be, could be the night ends all

No rains could weep as I have wept
To know a simple dream will not be kept
I am a child
So far from home

One by one the sky falls
I may not awaken

May It Be

From the soundtrack of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.

Roma Ryan

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh! How far you are from home

Mornië utúlië (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornië alantië (Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadow's call
Will fly away
May it be your journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornië utúlië (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way

Mornië alantië (Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

A promise lives within you now

Aníron

From the soundtrack of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. The lyrics in italics are not included in the version feaured on the soundrack.

Roma Ryan

E mor henion i dhu:
Ely siriar, el sila.
Ai! Aniron Undomiel.

Tiriel arad ‘ala mor
Minnon i dhu- sad oltha.
Ai! Aniron Edhelharn.

Alae! Ir el od elin!
I ‘lir uin el luitha guren.
Ai! Aniron Undomiel.

I lacha en naur e-chun
Sila, eria, bronia.
Ai! Aniron Edhelharn

Translation
Out of darkness I understand the night:
Dreams flow, a star shines.
Ah! I desire Evenstar.

Having watched the day grow dark
I go into night - a place to dream.
Ah! I desire Elfstone.

Behold! The star of stars!
The song of the star enchants my heart.
Ah! I desire Evenstar.

The flame of the fire of the heart
Shines, rises, endures.
Ah! I desire Elfstone.

The Frog Prince

from The Frog Pince film soundtrack

Roma Ryan

Deep in my dreams,
I saw you close by my side.
And the words you said to me,
made me reel down deep inside.
My hand in your hand,
so warm and so lovingly.
Leaving all my dreams behind,
wonder who my prince will be?

Chorus:
What is this wonder,
that love can make you feel?
Am I deep now in slumber,
or is my prince real?

Now, now my dream,
is standing close by my side.
Saying words I wish to hear,
and I'm reeling deep inside.

Chorus

Morning has come,
my dreams are left far behind.
As I walk through Paris streets,
I know now what I shall find.

This smile on my face,
will carry a love I have known.
Like a fairytale come true,
oh, what joy this love has shown

Dreams

from The Frog Pince film soundtrack

C. McGettigan

You're everything my dreams have seen.
But, what are dreams?
I'm walking where my dreams have been.
But, what are dreams?

Can I believe these spells I feel?
I'm wary now.
Can I believe, or is this real?
I'm wary now.

Just like some new-born creature, I.
What are dreams?
A child in need of love and care.
Tell me what, tell me what, are dreams?

Can I believe these spells I feel?
I'm wary now.
Can I believe, or is this real?
I'm wary now. 

Just like some new-born creature, I.
What are dreams?
A child in need of love and care.
Tell me what, tell me what, are dreams?

Song of the Sandman

Roma Ryan

Can you hear in night's deep song
all the shadows say
telling you when you're asleep
tears will fade away

Dream of morning's golden light
when you and I will leave the night

And when the moon is high and bright
stars will shine on you

Dream of morning's golden light
when you and I will leave the night

Make a wish and when you close your eyes
I will come to you

Dream of morning's golden light
when you and I will leave the night

Make a wish and when you close your eyes
I will come to you

Eclipse

Roma Ryan
