    Wait for the Sun - Fiona McBain/Ollabelle 2011

     

    Don't fade away

    Don't turn out the light of the day

    When even the shadows are claimed by the dark. 

     

    I won't let you down

    I won't let them turn you around

    Just hold on for now, the dawn isn't far away.

    So just keep your stay

     

    And wait for the sun, wait for the sun, wait for the sun

     

    Tracks in the sand

    And cracks in the clay where you stand

    The wind sweeps away all that was lost and found

    So go underground

     

    And wait for the sun, wait for the sun wait for the sun.

     

    Wait, wait for the sun

    Wait wait for the sun

    Wait wait for the sun

  • 04:17 Lyrics Into My Arms

    INTO MY ARMS- Nick Cave

     

    I don't believe in an interventionist God
    But I know, darling, that you do
    But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
    Not to intervene when it came to you
    Not to touch a hair on your head
    To leave you as you are
    And if He felt He had to direct you
    Then direct you into my arms

    Into my arms, O Lord, into my arms
    Into my arms, O Lord, into my arms
    Into my arms, O Lord, into my arms
    Into my arms, O Lord, into my arms
    Into my arms, O Lord, into my arms
    Into my arms, O Lord, into my arms

    And I don't believe in the existence of angels
    But looking at you I wonder if that's true
    But if I did I would summon them together
    And ask them to watch over you
    To each light a candle for you
    To make bright and clear your path
    And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love
    And guide you into my arms

    Into my arms, O Lord, into my arms
    Into my arms, O Lord, into my arms

    But I believe in Love
    And I know that you do too
    And I believe in some kind of path
    That we can walk down, me and you
    So keep your candles burning
    And make her journey bright and pure
    That she will keep returning
    Always and evermore

    Into my arms, O Lord, into my arms
    Into my arms, O Lord, into my arms
    Into my arms, O Lord, into my arms






  • 03:48 Story Lyrics Don't Fade on Me

    I remember you so clearly
    The first one through the door

    I return to find you drifting
    Too far from the shore


    I remember feeling this way
    You can lose it without knowing
    You wake up and you don't notice
    Which way the wind is blowing


    Don't fade
    Don't fade on me

    You were the one who made things different
    You were the one who took me in
    You were the one thing I could count on
    Above all you were my friend

    Don't fade
    Don't fade on me

    Well your clothes hang on a wire
    And the sun is overhead
    But today you are too weary
    To even leave your bed


    Was it love that took you under?
    Or did you know too much?
    Was it something you could picture?
    But never could quite touch?

    Don't fade
    Don't fade on me

    Don't fade
    Don't fade on me
