Always There.. My Land.. Caledonia.. Celtic Thunder

Regardless of how I’m feeling, Emmet sounds passionate about the words in this song.

Always There

When I’m less than I should be
And I just can’t face the day
When darkness falls around me
And I just can’t find my wayWhen my eyes don’t clearly see
And I stumble through it all
You, I lean upon, you keep me strong
And you raise me when I fall

You are there when I most need you
You are there so constantly
You come shining through, you always do
You are always there for me

When life brings me to my knees
When my back’s against the wall
You are standing there right with me
Just to keep me standing tall

Though a burden, I may be
You don’t weary, you don’t rest
You are reaching out to carry me
And I know I’m heaven blessed

You are there when I most need you
You are there so constantly
You come shining through, you always do
You are always there for me

You are there when I most need you
You are there so constantly
You come shining through, you always do
You are always there for me

There when I most need you
There so constantly
You come shining through, you always do
You are always there for me

You come shining through, you always do
You are always there for me

My Land is breathtaking no matter where I am when I hear the men singing their solos.

My Land

How green are your valleys, how blue your great skies,
Your mountains stand tall in their glory:
Your rivers run free – the bright stars are your eyes,
Your beauty is endless before me.Oh, you are the song ever singing in me,
And you are the heart ever true:
For, you are my land and you always will be,
The voice ever calling me… home to you.

When times we are far from your forests and streams,
When sailing from your shining waters:
We carry your hopes – your spirit, your dreams-
In the hearts of your sons and your daughters.

CHORUS

When to your green valleys some day I return,
When you lay your mantle around me:
At rest I will be where the heart will not yearn,
With my land to ever…surround me.

CHORUS

The voice ever calling me…home to you.

And then Caledonia tugs at my heart.

“Caledonia”

I don’t know if you can see, the changes that have come over me
In these last few days, I’ve been afraid, that I might drift away
I’ve been tellin’ old stories, singing songs
That made me think, about where I’ve come from
And that’s the reason why I seem so far away today.Let me tell you that I love you
And I think about you all the time
Caledonia you’re calling me, now I’m goin’ home
But if I should become a stranger
Know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia’s been everything I’ve ever had.I have moved, and I’ve kept on movin’
Proved the points that I needed provin’
I Lost the friends that I needed losin’
Found others on the way
I’ve kissed the girls and left them crying
Stolen dreams, yes there’s no denying
I’ve traveled hard sometimes with conscience flyin’
Somewhere in the wind

Let me tell you that I love you
And I think about you all the time
Caledonia you’re calling me, now I’m goin’ home
But if I should become a stranger
Know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia’s been everything I’ve ever had.

Let me tell you that I love you
And I think about you all the time
Caledonia you’re calling me, now I’m goin’ home
But if I should become a stranger
Know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia’s been everything I’ve ever had.
