  When you say nothing at all - Ronan Keating  

Let the River Run - Carly Simon

We’re coming to the edge
Running on the water
Coming through the fog
Your sons and daughters

Let the river run
Let all the dreamers
Wake the nation
Come, the New Jerusalem

Silver cities rise
The morning lights
The streets that meet them
And sirens call them on
With a song

It’s asking for the taking
Trembling, shaking
Oh, my heart is aching

We're coming to the edge
Running on the water
Coming through the fog
Your sons and daughters

We the great and small
Stand on a star
And blaze a trail of desire
Through the dark’ning dawn

Peace Train - Cat Stevens

[Verse 1]
Now I’ve been happy lately
Thinkin’ about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun

Oh, I’ve been smilin’ lately
Dreamin’ about the world as one
And I believe it could be
Some day it’s going to come

Cause out on the edge of darkness
There rides a peace train
Oh, peace train take this country
Come take me home again

Now, I’ve been smiling lately
Thinkin’ about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun

[Chorus]
Oh, peace train soundin’ louder
Glide on the peace train
Ooh, ah, ee, ah, ooh, ah
Come on, now peace train
Yes, peace train, holy roller
Everyone jump on the peace train
Ooh, ah, ee, ah, ooh, ah
Come on, now peace train

[Verse 2]
Get your bags together
Go bring your good friends, too
Because it’s gettin’ nearer
It soon will be with you

Now, come and join the livin’
It’s not so far from you
And it’s gettin’ nearer
Soon it will all be true

[Chorus]
Oh, peace train soundin’ louder
Glide on the peace train
Ooh, ah, ee, ah, ooh, ah
Come on, now peace train
Ooh, ah, ee, ah, ooh, ah
Come on, now peace train

[Verse 3]
Now, I’ve been cryin’ lately
Thinkin’ about the world as it is
Why must we go on hating?
Why can’t we live in bliss?

Cause out on the edge of darkness
There rides a peace train
Oh, peace train take this country
Come take me home again

[Chorus]
Oh, peace train soundin’ louder
Glide on the peace train
Ooh, ah, ee, ah, ooh, ah
Come on, now peace train
Yes peace train, holy roller
Everyone jump on the peace train
Yes, come on peace train, yeah
Yes, it’s the peace train

Come on now, peace train, oh peace train

Chelsea Morning - Joni Mitchell

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning, and the first thing that I heard
Was a song outside my window, and the traffic wrote the words
It came a-reeling up like Christmas bells, and rapping up like pipes and drums

Oh, won’t you stay
We’ll put on the day
And we’ll wear it ’til the night comes

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning, and the first thing that I saw
Was the sun through yellow curtains, and a rainbow on the wall
Blue, red, green and gold to welcome you, crimson crystal beads to beckon

Oh, won’t you stay
We’ll put on the day
There’s a sun show every second

Now the curtain opens on a portrait of today
And the streets are paved with passersby
And pigeons fly
And papers lie
Waiting to blow away

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning, and the first thing that I knew
There was milk and toast and honey and a bowl of oranges, too
And the sun poured in like butterscotch and stuck to all my senses
Oh, won't you stay
We’ll put on the day
And we’ll talk in present tenses

When the curtain closes and the rainbow runs away
I will bring you incense owls by night
By candlelight
By jewel-light
If only you will stay
Pretty baby, won’t you
Wake up, it’s a Chelsea morning

When you say nothing at all - Ronan Keating

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 can never explain
What I hear when you don't say a thing

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
The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me wherever I fall
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 they could never define
What’s been said between your heart and mine

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
The touch of your hand says you’ll catch me wherever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all

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
The touch of your hand says you'’ll catch me wherever I fall
You say it best, when you say nothing at all

(You say it best when you say nothing at all
You say it best when you say nothing at all)

That smile on your face
The truth in your eyes
The touch of your hand
Let’s me know that you need me
(You say it best when you say nothing at all
You say it best when you say nothing at all)
