"The Hands Of Man" (2014)

The Hands Of Man lyrics - Chris De Burgh

These are the hands that build cathedrals
These are the hands that feed the world
These are the hands that kill the ones we heal
These are the hands of man

These are the eyes that see the wonders
These are the eyes that greet the dawn
These are the eyes that see the glory of
The place that is our home

These are the wounds that tell of anger
These are the wounds that speak of hate
Yet there was one that gave his only son
And these are the wounds... of love

And we have crossed the oceans
We have followed the stars
We have learned to reason
And we have studied the heart
We can build cathedrals
We are part of the plan
We have sailed the skies
For we are man!

These are the days to live forever
These are the days of the human race
For there will come a time when we'll be gone
Gone without a trace

These are the dreams that take us forward
These are the dreams that walked the moon
These are the dreams that make us what we are
These are the dreams... of Man!

And we have crossed the oceans
We have followed the stars
We have learned to reason
And we have studied the heart
We can build cathedrals
We can sail the skies
We have energy hostage
Turning day into night
We are far from perfect
We are making mistakes
We can change direction
'Cos it's never too late
We can cross over bridges
We can open our hands
To a brand new world
We are man!

And we have crossed the oceans
We have followed the stars
We have learned to reason
And we have studied the heart
We can build cathedrals
We can sail the skies
We have energy hostage
Turning day into night
We are far from perfect
We are making mistakes
We can change direction
'Cos it's never too late
We can cross over bridges
We can open our hands
To a brand new world
We are man!

There Goes My Heart Again lyrics - Chris De Burgh

There goes my heart again
Lost in the dark again
One touch, a crowded room
The whisper of her name

Her cold and simple kiss
Turns me upside down like this
There goes my heart again
I'm losing it over you

So many people say
Don't lose your heart again
But look, what could I do
When lightning strikes this way

She took me by suprise
With that something special in her eyes
There goes my heart again
I'm losing it over you

I've done my time
In the prison of love
And just when they let me out
I'm locked inside again

How could a simple kiss
Turn me upside down like this
There goes my heart again
I'm losing it over you

I've done my time
In the prison of love
And just when they let me out
I'm locked inside again

So throw away the key
This is where I want to be
There's no need to escape
Cos she's in here with me

If this is doing time
Well my friends I'm doing fine
There goes my heart again
I'm losing it over you
There goes my heart again
I'm losing it over you
There goes my heart again
I'm losing it over you
There goes my heart again
I'm losing it over you

Big City Sundays lyrics - Chris De Burgh

Birds on the wing, we are the lost generation
We have to go breaking the hearts of a nation

Oh but I'm fine, this city's ok
This is my time, I'm finding my way
In this brave new world
But there's one thing

Here on a Sunday, it's always the same
The streets are deserted, just me and the rain
On big city Sundays, it's when I'm alone
I'm holding back the tears, dreaming of home

Birds on the wind, sailing the highways of freedom
Birds have to sing, needing a dream to believe in

Oh but all changed, utterly changed in this land
That's losing it's way, like a ship adrift on the ocean

Here on a Sunday, it's always the same
The streets are deserted, just me and the rain
On big city Sundays, it's when I'm alone
I'm holding back the tears, dreaming of home

Home, where my heart is
Home, the sea and the sky and that feeling inside
Just to be with my friends
How I long for that feeling again

Here on a Sunday, it's bringing me down
The streets are deserted, there's no one around
On big city Sundays, it's when I'm alone
I'm holding back the tears, dreaming of home

On big city Sundays, it's when I'm alone
I'm holding back the tears, dreaming of home
Dreaming of home

Where Would I Be? lyrics - Chris De Burgh

We would walk to the park on sundays
Down the road from our very first home
And see the little children playing
Wondering if we would have our own

And now we've had our lovely family
Grown up and gone away
And there is something that I've always meant to say

Where would I be without your love
How can I sleep without your touch
How would it be if I were living on my own
Without you, without you

If I walked in days of darkness
You were always there with a light for me
Down the years there have been so many changes
Friends have parted chasing dreams

But we're still here and there are no regrets
For tears along the way
And there is something that I've always meant to say

Where would I be without your love
How can I sleep without your touch
How would it be if I were living on my own
Without you

We're still here and there are no regrets
For tears along the way
And this is something that I've always meant to say

Where would I be without your love
How can I sleep without your touch
How would it be if I were living on my own
Without you, without you
Where would I be
Without you
Where would I be

The Ghost Of Old King Richard lyrics - Chris De Burgh

I have seen the ghost of old King Richard
Walking through the hall as if he were alive
And with such an air of pain and sorrow
Trying to get back to the other side

I have heard the tale of when King Richard
Was granted a relic of the Holy Cross
But from him 'twas stolen when in prison
Now he's greaving for the loss

Oh a lack a day
May good fortune come his way
Oh a lack a lee
May his spirit rest in peace

I have seen the sword of old King Richard
Hanging with a scabbard at the fireside
Such a mighty blade of Spanish silver
Keen and flashing in the firelight

I have read the words of old King Richard
Standing at the walls of Jerusalem
When he raised his voice to exhort his people
Ready for the battle with the Saracen

Oh a lack a day
May good fortune come his way
Oh a lack a lee
May his spirit rest in peace

Oh a lack a day
May good fortune come his way
Oh a lack a lee
May his spirit rest in peace

I have seen the ghost of old King Richard
Walking through the hall as if he were alive

The Candlestick lyrics - Chris De Burgh

She moved through the fair with a smile in her eyes
So pure and graceful and free
And caught the attention of one who was there
A Candlestick-maker, he

Handsome and young, a craftsman fine
Smitten by her that day
And so then he wrote down a poem for her that would say

"Take me in your hands tonight
Come through the parlour by candlelight
With thee I will wait this night
Chase away shadows and stay 'til the morning is nigh"

But the journey of love is a rocky road
And comes with many a spill
He wooed and pursued her for more than a year
And then she said I will

He made her a gift of a candlestick
On their wedding day
And written in silver around in the words, that did say

"Take me in your hands tonight
Come through the parlour by candlelight
With thee I will wait this night
Chase away shadows and stay 'til the morning is nigh"

That candlestick was so much loved and admired
But hundreds of years would go by
'Twas there in an old Curiosity shop
I found it, forgotten by time

Blackened with age but soon to shine
Beauty from long ago
And I often consider all those who have held it before

"Take me in your hands tonight
Come through the parlour by candlelight
With thee I will wait this night
Chase away shadows and stay 'til the morning is nigh"

"Take me in your hands tonight
Come through the parlour by candlelight
With thee I will wait this night
Chase away shadows and stay 'til the morning is nigh
Chase away shadows and stay 'til the morning is nigh"

Through These Eyes lyrics - Chris De Burgh

Through these eyes I have seen the world
Lived my dreams in a thousend ways
With my treasures and my memories
Now I wait for the end of days

A rose that is old and dry
And a mirror that's broken
But through these eyes they come to life again

And then the rose begins to bloom and shine again
I must be dreaming
And in the mirror there is a face, I'm young again
I must be dreaming

Through these eyes

Through these eyes I have seen so much
In a changing world that is made for the young
And for the ones who are left behind
I still have my photographs

Of where we would laugh and run
Now almost forgotten
But through the darkness I can see a light

And then the sun begins to shine, I see my friends
I must be dreaming
They're reaching out to hold my hand, we're young again
I must be dreaming

Through these eyes
Through these eyes

The Keeper Of The Keys lyrics - Chris De Burgh

I hear her voice
She calls to me
I know she's near
But I cannot see
Through prison walls
That come between
Her dreams of freedom and the real world
Where her face is never seen

All the king's horses and all his men
Are fearful of the power that can come from book and pen
And all the changes there that can be found
And far away I hear a distant sound

It's rolling like thunder

Oh, shout it from the highest window, break down every door
And tell them you won't take it anymore
Show that you will never spend a lifetime on your knees
Rise up and catch the Keeper of the Keys

Oh, what ancient words can hold her here
But she's never heard
By men who claim the higher ground
It was always there for them to have and hold
Where woman's never found

All of the holy men who are at her door
Are frightened that their power will be lost forevermore
If she believes her freedom's on the way
And still it's getting louder every day

The sound of thunder

Oh, shout it from the highest window, break down every door
And tell them you won't take it anymore
Show that you will never spend a lifetime on your knees
Rise up and catch the Keeper of the Keys, rise up!

Tell them you will never spend a lifetime on your knees
And when you catch and kill the Keeper of the Keys

You will be free!
You will be free!
You will be free!
You will be free...

Letting Go lyrics - Chris De Burgh

I can tell by your eyes you've had one of those days
When nothing is easy everything is a strain
The endless queues and traffic
It always seems to be this way

I can tell by your face you need one of those nights
To really go crazy, let the woman inside
Come on out instead of hiding
The way you have to everyday
So now it's time to set her free again

I really love it when you lose control
I really love it when you're letting go
You're really laughing from your heart and soul
It's a wonderful kind of a feeling
It's the best kind of a feeling
Just letting go

I can tell by your face you've had a terrible time
Spending your day just hanging on the line
Trying to talk to someone human
Not a multi choice machine

So put on your makeup and your dancing shoes
A kiss and a hug to get rid of the blues
There is no point looking backwards
'Cos it can only bring you down
So let's go now and really hit the town

I really love it when you lose control
I really love it when you're letting go
You're really laughing from your heart and soul
It's a wonderful night for the feeling
It's the best time for the feeling
Just letting go

What a wonderful night for the feeling
It's the best time for the feeling
Just letting go

You really love it when I take control
You really love it when you're letting go
You're really laughing from your heart and soul
I really love it when you're letting go
Letting go

When The Dream Is Over lyrics - Chris De Burgh

When the dream is over, hold it in your heart
Keep it for the moments when we're apart
Kisses in the moonlight, whispers with the dawn
Memories of this magic with your loving boy

On and on the weels are turning, taking me away
But I'll be coming home again, and on that day...
There'll be celebrations and for you and me
Time to have a dance around the Christmas tree!

On and on the weels are turning, taking me away
But I'll be coming home again, and on that day...
There'll be celebrations and for you and me
Time to have a kiss behind the Christmas tree!

When the dream is over, hold it in your heart
Keep it for the moments when we're apart
Kisses in the moonlight, whispers with the dawn
Memories of this magic with your loving boy
There'll be celebrations and for you and me
Time to have a dance around the Christmas tree!

Welcome back, welcome home
Welcome back where you belong!
Welcome back, welcome home
Welcome back where you belong!

What a celebration and for you and me
Time to have a kiss behind the Christmas tree!
Welcome home...

Empty Rooms lyrics - Chris De Burgh

Empty rooms, childhood's end
Forgotten toys upon the bed
Dreams and memories are all around me now
And I can see you everywhere I look

But moving on is what you must do
Find your way, be happy to
Your world is waiting now and you need never know
Of all these places that I go

To hear the laughter and dry the tears
Remembering all the years
When you were growing up
And every photograph can take me there

We brought you up to be proud and strong
And ready for anything
Oh little child of mine
What life can bring

Empty rooms when I left home
I could not wait to be moving on
I never thought so much about those left behind
But now I know how it has to be

To hear the laughter and dry the tears
Remembering all the years
When you were growing up
And every photograph still takes me there

We brought you up to be proud and strong
In everything that you do
Oh little child of mine I miss you
Oh little child of mine I love you
I love you

The Bridge lyrics - Chris De Burgh

They stood on the bridge together
And watched the river flow
And to pledge themselves forever
A place where lovers go

To fix a lock upon the bridge
And each would have a key
That told of their eternal love
The way that it must be

And with this key, she said I give
My soul, my love, my heart
And if the lock should go from here
Then I will know that we must part

Oh but soon he had to leave her
To be a soldier far away
And she would go down to the cathedral
And every morning pray

To light a candle for her love
To bring him safely home
But on the day the letter came
She knew that he was gone

With trembling hands, she opened it
To read the words which said
"It is with deep regret we must
Inform you that he's missing, believed dead"

She stood on the bridge at midnight
And watched the river flow
And the lock was in her fingers
Into the water she would go

But in the distance heard a voice
Calling out her name
And as he ran to her, she fell
In his arms again

And with this key I gave, he said
My soul, my love, my heart
And when I saw the lock was gone
I knew that we could never be apart
We will never part...

The Fields Of Agincourt lyrics - Chris De Burgh

When darkness comes
And shadows fill the night
We stand at arms
And ready for the fight

Brave men will fall
Upon Saint Crispin's day
On fields of Agincourt hearts will stay

Raise up your voice
And let the fall man hear
Our duty calls
Of them we have no fear

See flags that fly
So proudly in the wind
On fields of Agincourt for them we sing

Now comes the hour
So hear the trumpet call
We will advance with long bow and the sword

Lift up your hearts
For England and the King
On fields of Agincourt
This day we will win

Hail to the King
His kingdom will not fall
Praise to the King
Who leads us from the fore

Long live the King
On fields of Agincourt
They will speak of them this day
And ever more

On fields of Agincourt
They will speak of us this day

And ever more

Ever more

One More Goodbye lyrics - Chris De Burgh

Now that this evening is through
Can I have this dance with you?
Here in your arms, the beat of my heart
Is betraying the way that I feel

Music, a glass of champagne
Who knows when we'll meet again
At the end of the night, by the dawns early light
Will you kiss me for one more goodbye?

Nobody knows what the future will hold
Or what's hiding behind every door
But a journey has begun and if you are the one
Do I have to keep on looking anymore?

So now let this story unfold
It's the same one that's always been told
A boy and a girl in an uncertain world
So kiss me for one more goodbye

Kiss me for one more goodbye

Yes nobody knows what the future will hold
Or what's hiding behind every door
But a journey has begun and if you are the one
Do I have to keep on looking anymore?

So let's dance in the old fashioned way
You've stolen my heart and I pray
That I'll see you again in the sun or the rain
So kiss me for one more goodbye

Kiss me for one more goodbye
Kiss me for one more goodbye
Goodbye
