Strong in the Sun

The Wind Was High (O’Kelly)

The wind was high and the sky was blue
The last day I spent with you
 The wind was high and the sky was blue
Last day I spent with you

In the morning we woke and we clung so close together
It was a good day to sail
In the morning we woke and we clung so close together
I could feel you were afraid

And that’s the way, that’s the way
We feel today,
That’s the way, that’s the way we feel
That’s the way, that’s the way
We feel today,
That’s the way, that’s the way we feel

I took your things down to the boat train
That was waiting on the line
When we kissed goodbye we were laughing
But afraid that we might cry
And I walked away and I turned to wave
But the train it just stood there
And oh, when I looked again
That station it was bare

And that’s the way, that’s the way
We feel today,
That’s the way, that’s the way we feel
And that’s the way, that’s the way
We feel today,
That’s the way, that’s the way we feel
And that’s the way, that’s the way
We feel today,
That’s the way, that’s the way we feel

Whitestone Bridge (Condell)

Climbing in the car, climbing in the car
And we’re rolling cross the Whitestone
Listen to the car, listen to the car
As we roll across the Whitestone
Getting nearer, getting nearer
Getting to your red lights
And I’m rolling cross the Whitestone Bridge
And I’m rolling cross the heaven-held ridge
And I‘m rolling cross the Whitestone

See the lovely sky, see the lovely sky
And the evening full of aeros
Not so long ago, not so long ago
I was high above there
See the lovely, see the lovely, see the lovely red sun
And I’m rolling cross the Whitestone Bridge
Yeh I’m rolling cross the heaven –held ridge
And I’m rolling cross the Whitestone bridge.

And it makes me feel not so far from you
Ah, it makes me feel not so far, not so far from you
And it makes me feel not so far from you

We’re not so far away, we’re not so far away
And we turn into the southward
The lights are full of wheels, the lights are full of wheels
And there’s sorrow on the airwaves
You radio, you radio you’re reaching to the people
And I’m rolling cross the Whitestone
Rolling cross the Whitestone
Rolling cross the Whitestone Bridge
And it makes me feel not so far from you
And it makes me feel not so far, not so far from you.

In the Morning (Condell)

The night has rumbled by
The sunflower unfolds
I feel my hand being taken
And then my day begins
I hear your quiet voice
Like the lakeside’s gentle wave
In the morning, in the morning

There are people on the stairs
And a bell being rung
The shutter is firmly closed
But the sun is squeezing through
Filling our tiny room
With hope for the future
In the morning, in the morning

Outside our little room
Runs race 1949
Above the baby’s dreams
The hum of hectic life
We can see no chequered flag
But the one that keeps us warm
In the morning, in the morning

The night has rumbled by
The sunflower unfolds
I feel my hand being taken
And then my day begins
I hear your quiet voice
Like the lakeside’s gentle wave
In the morning, in the morning
In the morning, in the morning.

Teesside (Condell)

Leave your old Teesside
You know my love’s an ebb-tide
I’ll bring you down upon the wave
Your sail is full I’ll lead the way

I thought I’d never see you
You came so like the morning
Like ships at sea we couldn’t pass
But you came down and we made fast

Oh my love, whoah
We came at last
Oh my love, whoah
And we made fast

And me upon my hilltop
You seldom came to see me
For all my songs and all my signs
They’re in the sky but you never see

I’m leaving on the north wind
Sometimes it blows a whisper
From off your lips a tiny word
That brings it down and tingles on
Oh my love, whoah
It brings on
Oh my love, whoah
It tingles on

Love Lost (O’Kelly)

I lay upon the cliff-edge thinking
Seagulls they did swoop and scream
And whitening clouds blew across the sky
And everything was right but me
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah

Leather boots
And lightening nights did taunt the sun
Oh take me back to that fair place
Where I came from
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah

I dreamt we drank iced-coffee
In the shade, me and my true love
Shadows falling everywhere
Oh we were so good.

But then I woke and reached for you
The space between us was so great
It made me feel that I could never
Fill that emptiness
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah

How could I get so far away
In just so few short years
It was so hard to get near
Although I know it’s here
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah

Cinema (O’Kelly)

All day long I waited
Waited all day long
All day long I waited
Waited all day long
Outside the cinema
Outside the cinema
Outside the cinema
For you

While you watched railroads flyin'
While you watched cowboys dying
While you watched clowns cryin' like the rain
I had it flashed on the screen
I had it flashed on the screen
I had it flashed on the screen
The screen in my dream

All day long I waited
Waited all day long
All day long I waited
Waited all day long
Outside the cinema
Outside the cinema
Outside the cinema
For you

While you watched railroads flyin'
While you watched cowboys dying
While you watched clowns crying' like the rain
I had it flashed on the screen
I had it flashed on the screen
I had it flashed on the screen
The screen in my dream

And then a kiss so short so sweet
And then a kiss so short so sweet
Penetrated through, penetrated through
All that was between me and you.

Strong In The Sun (O’Kelly)

Oh I just can’t believe it when I look out my back window
And I see you coming down the road
You got your cases in your hand, am I to understand?
You’re coming to stay with me
You’re coming to stay with me

We’re gonna be strong in the sun
We’re gonna show everyone
We’re gonna be warm in the night
We’re gonna be free

We’re gonna be strong in the sun
We’re gonna show everyone
We’re gonna be warm in the night
We’re gonna be free

We’re gonna be strong in the sun
We’re gonna show everyone
We’re gonna be warm in the night
We’re gonna be free

Oh I feel so happy when I look out my back window
And I see you playing with the kids
They’re making daisy-chains
And I can hear them say
That they love you
Just like I do

We’re gonna be strong in the sun
We’re gonna show everyone
We’re gonna be warm in the night
We’re gonna be free

We’re gonna be strong in the sun
We’re gonna show everyone
We’re gonna be warm in the night
We’re gonna be free

We’re gonna be strong in the sun
We’re gonna show everyone
We’re gonna be warm in the night
We’re gonna be free

Most Magical (Condell)

Oh, I see my little lady
When I’m stretching out before the fire
Yeh, I see my little lady
When I’m stretching out before the fire
Aha, aha, aha, aha

Oh, I see my little lady
When I’m stretching out before the fire
Yeh, I see within the flames
You know I see her in the flames of fire
Aha, aha, aha, aha

And this night could be more than magical
Yeh, this night could be more than magical
With you

Oh, see my little lady
When I’m singing out across the water
Yeh, see my little lady
When I’m singing out across the water
Aha, aha, aha, aha
Oh, see my little lady

Oh, see my little lady
When I’m singing out across the water
Yeh, seems a little crazy but you know I really wish I’d brought her
Aha, aha, aha, aha

And this night could be more than magical
Yeh, this night could be more than magical
With you

Oh, she’s my little lady and I’d really like to hold her tightly
Yeh, she’s me little lady and I‘d really like to hold her tightly
Aha, aha, aha, aha

Yeh, she’s my little woman and you know I really miss her nightly
Aha, aha, aha, aha

And this night could be more than magical
Yeh, this night could be more than magical
Yeh, this night could be more than, more than,
More than magical - with you

Fall Of Day (Condell)

So sing for the fall of day
I wouldn’t have it linger
Turn clock and all homeward go
And be you not so wayward
Oh the lark has told the eagle
The snake has told the dying
And all around the sea
The waves have kissed the caves cool

I was leaning on my hands
Waiting for the cock crow
I saw our red mountain
With dew upon his shoulders
And down she climbs, the angel
Down the steps of starlight
And me, the gazing savage,
Pondering the full bloom

Waiting, I’m a desert soul,
The stream of love is stony
Come now, oh my golden girl
Your flood can overflow me
Oh, you are the eyes of laughter
Banishing the dismal
Oh, you are the bells of living
Ringing in the dark sea.
