This is the social event of the season It's not my game, but you give me reason You dance with kindness around the floor While your escort seems ready for war His hand is tight around your arm Your dignity, he’s doing harm I see you flinch. To restore your calm, I will break the rules with all of my charm Give me the favor of a dance Give me the favor of a dance She spoke of your generosity Given that, then won’t you please Give me the favor of a dance He lets us dance though it’s not my game Then cuts it short and puts you to shame Lay into him and we dance on the floor We draw our swords, ready for war Give me the favor of a dance Give me the favor of a dance You spoke with such animosity Given that, then won’t you please Give me the favor of a dance I leave him lying in a puddle of shame It might be fun but this ain’t my game The cruel rules of your society Are different than those for me Give me the favor of a dance Give me the favor of a dance We prefer generosity Given that, then won’t you please Give me the favor of a dance

Naked 03:10
You're a stunning lady Your emotions you hide You tear down my defenses With a wink of your eye * You think it's a game That only you can win But that is insane, girl Cuz it's you… who's naked That I undressed your heart You choose to downplay Try to reclothe your thoughts But your feelings you betray You're breaking down now Can I hold you when you cry? Or will you disarm me? Before you tell me goodbye And leave me naked Don’t cut yourself off There’s no need to hide Wanna know every part of you Please let down your guard

Blink 03:35
I love old things. They make me feel sad Take me back to the past, and all the happiness I had But when I met you, I could not close my eyes I couldn't even blink, Lest you disappeared into time Asked you out for a drink while the rain fell down I tried not to think that you might turn me down You’re like an angel as old as the universe You saved me from a lonely life that is so much worse Don't blink. Don't look away Life is too short I won't blink. I won't turn my back Let go of the hurt. I won’t blink Things don't always happen like we dream and plan It gets lonely sometimes. That's why I take your hand To grow old with you for as long as time goes by You showed me this moment and you opened up my eyes

I’m going back to the ocean I’m gonna feel the sand I’m gonna roll in the waves Like a seal swim away from the strand I got to live among men I swooned the ladies well I gained many new friends None of them compare to the swells Going down to the ocean I missed the ocean I tried to ride the waves I thought that I could thrive I struggled to go with the current Every twist and turn felt contrived Going down to the ocean Back in the ocean Got cold after a few days on the island Good friends and lovers aren't warm enough for me I wanna be free again, not hiding The ocean is the place I need to be I’m gonna dive neath the waves I’m gone with the setting sun I’m going back to the depths Where a selkie’s life was begun Going down to the ocean Back in the ocean

There are scallops in the sea, put there for you and me By the Lord who reigns from heaven above And the divers catch and sell, but we won’t go to hell We treat the sea with joy, respect and love * There’s a wild and rolling sea bringing me back home to ye To yer bed that’s dry and crisp and woman warm And our lovin’ knows no harm when I hold you in my arms When the Boys from Lerags Glen come rollin’ home There are rocks upon the shore. there are sgheirs even more And the trawlers they are dredging to and fro’ But the diver’s in the gully, for the seabed we don’t sully Hand pickin’ is the way I chose to go But today the sea is calm and the boat is full of clams And swiftly we have cleared KilBrannan Sound Sacks of scallops stacked up high. All our divers safe and dry And soon for Lerags Glen, we’re homeward bound But now a new day’s dawned and time is moving on Conservation is a game that they all play And my work they cannot thole and I’m told to sign the dole No more from Lerags Glen go to the sea

Redemption 03:38
I was so young. I made a mistake That I have never shared Much to regret, I tried to forget. I ran That just laid it bare. It laid it all bare To speak the words out loud made me Shudder for the harm I done Now I help the innocent Still I feel the need to run Because I burn. I burn It won't cover the pain But it's time I learn. It’s time I learn Redemption can come again Redemption can come again Redemption can come again Are great men truly forged in fire While others light the flame? That's what I tell myself so that I can avoid the blame, avoid the blame Deep down inside, there's a scared little child Smashing statues, filled with fright Under cover, changing faces To hide away in plain sight But still I burn. I burn It won't cover the pain But it's time I learn. It's time I learn Redemption can come again Redemption can come again Redemption can come again And still my monsters come from my past They shatter my future bones Scary to face them, but time will heal Don't have to do it alone, no longer alone Promise to keep, tho I may weep For the pain I kept deep down Face my fears for 1200 years Hope will turn my life around No longer burn. No longer burn It may not cover the pain But it's time I learn. It's time I learn Redemption can come again Redemption can come again Redemption can come again But it's time I learn. It's time I learn Redemption can come again Redemption can come again Redemption can come again Can come again

Spiderwebs 02:08
Bad men are bird dogging our town Dogging our town, bird dogging our town Bad men are bird dogging your town We’ll lay a trap for them We’re gonna spin a spiderweb, Spiderweb, Spiderweb We’re gonna spin a spiderweb That’s how we will catch them I’ll wear a soft cotton dress, Soft cotton dress, soft cotton dress I’ll wear a soft cotton dress A pretty floral bonnet on top We’ll shoot them down in the spider web Spiderweb, spiderweb Shoot them down in the spider web And celebrate our win A pretty little girl has lured me in, Lured me in, lured me in A pretty little girl has lured me in And declared her love for me She caught my heart in a spiderweb. Spiderweb, Spiderweb Caught my heart in a spiderweb Now how will this all end She’s leading me to the end of the line. End of the line, end of the line Leading me to the end of the line We'll put things right again I’ll break free from her spiderweb, Spiderweb, spiderweb I’ll break free from her spiderweb And never kiss a girl again Come here little lady, may I meet you, I meet you, I meet you Come here little lady may I meet you Guess it begins again It’s all a game of spiderwebs, Spiderwebs, spiderwebs It’s all a game of spiderwebs And everybody falls in

He was an alpha male and like a strong gale, He blew thru your life without regret Left destruction and pain, then came back again To hurt you and leave you upset But he rushed to your side when he heard you cry, Like a cowboy though he caused your distress You ain't a lady in need. So he better take heed Or you’ll destroy him in your purty dress * By amazing grace, you don’t need him It’s amazing he didn't know he was wrong The true measure of a man Is how willing he is to stand By the side of a woman who’s strong With a little bit o' force, he laid out a course To show you that he was righteous But you saw through that routine. You knew he was just mean Though he tried to pretend he was pious Yes, monsters are real, especially when they feel That their actions are justified by God You ain’t looking to run and you’re my kind of dumb You’ll lay him right down in the sod

* Bash their heads flay their skin Make them scream in pain Let ‘em alone and think you’re done Let's start another refrain Niska was old and scary, A bad reputation And then he heard a reaver scream His body's gone for cremation Badger was a businessman Roots in the community A reaver ate his little gang And now he can't even pee Durran's steak was always rare Before I first met him He met a reaver, now won't eat steak He's a vegetarian Bester loved ships and women They howled when he boarded them His ship was boarded by reavers. Now He howls when they board him Boss Higgins' word was law What he said was set in stone Then reavers hit Higgins' Moon The law is now written in bone Fanty and Mingo are fine twins You can't tell one from t'other Until they met a band of reavers Now Mingo's the prettiest brother Jubal was a bounty hunter A sadist through and through He rambled about philosophy While a reaver started to chew No mercy, they all were weak Cattle for the slaughter Open them up, look inside I think I see Harry Potter

Molly Malone 02:38
In Dublin's fair city, Where the girls are so pretty I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone She wheeled her wheelbarrow Through the streets broad and narrow Crying "cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh" * Alive, alive, oh, alive, alive, oh Crying "cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh" She was a fishmonger, And sure, t'was no wonder For so were her mother and father before They each wheeled their barrow Through the streets broad and narrow Crying "cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh" She died of a fever And no one could save her That was the end of sweet Molly Malone Now her ghost wheels her barrow Through the streets broad and narrow Crying "cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh"

Together 02:27
A journey we did not ask to take Threatening those we hold dear Into the frightening unknown Fighting to move through fear On our fight we end up places We never wanted to be But we are not alone Even though others we may not see * Together we are stronger Together we connect Together we seek knowledge Together we never forget It takes visionaries to gather us Focused on the broader view Bridging the gap between science and warrior Krabbe we will cure you
13.
There's a secret door to a hall unknown Inside are fears that turn me to stone Do I step forward or head back home? Which is the path for me? I raise my head and take one step more The ground it shakes. I look back to the door Feel like I’m caught and stuck to the floor And so I cut myself free * This world’s a treasure that is full of strife Every moment can enrich your life Just face your dragons with the edge of a knife It’s a better life you see. Come adventure with me There are ugly goblins doing scary things Deep down in dungeons there are magic rings Live or die with the riddles we bring You’ll find your way through the dark My Precious life has so many memories Fluttering birds, butterflies in trees My home is comfort, comfort is a breeze But there’s another way to live So many wars. It’s an endless fight To slay our dragons that soar through our night But I’m no coward. I’ll do what is right Before I make my way home. Now I’m back with stories that ring A truth that soars up on eagle wings Let’s not forget the songs elves sing Oh the joy that they bring!
