A Christmas Sky

Written By: Conor Foley

A Christmas Sky

A Christmas sky is
clear and blue
I'm going home now
to be with you
glow is all around
warmin up the town
liftin off the frost
from the cold cold ground

A christmas sky is
pale and gray
flurries of snow
across a window pane
friends all around
and laughing aloud
keeping out the cold
this christmas time

With the light of love inside me, I can see my way around me
just because I've found a love with you
hand in hand we hope to live a life together
just like the way that other lovers do

You're the one I give my heart to, the one I open up to
you're the one that I need
You give me all you have to give you never take you never leave
I never have to ask

A christmas sky
fades into night
its cold outside
hushed and quiet
bells are ringing
people are singing
Theyre hoping to find
a lover's light

With the light of love inside them, they can see their way around me
if they find a love with someone true
hand in hand they hope to live a life together
just like the way that other lovers do

Someone to give their heart to, someone to open up to
They find someone that they need
Give them all they have to give, never take and never leave
and never have to ask

The one I love

Written By: Conor Foley

The One I love

Sunshine thru the mountain trees
streams flowing by me
make me sing
when Im with the one I love

Strolling down a city street
is the place to be
and I sing
when Im with the one I Love

To lie there by her side
where I can watch the morning sun
and so I know how happiness grows
When Im with the one I want

Birds sing in the morning air
flying here and there
and they sing
when theyre with the one they need

Friends calling round at night
cosy talk by fire light
and they sing
when theyre with the one they need

Cos life's good things are for two
to share rather than win
and we know how happiness grows
When we’re with the one we want

And I want to share with you girl
And I want to share with you girl

Sunshine thru the mountain trees
streams flowing by me
and makes me sing
when Im with the one I Love

Thrown Away

Written By: Conor Foley

Thrown Away

Been away a long time now
found my way home somehow
Hoped to see what was before
The trees and the fields through the rolling hills
Where I walked as far as I could go
and good friends out walking by could stop to say hullo
with time to give to all who pass nothing taken nothing asked
just share a little love along the road
now its all gone away thrown away

But now the buildings rise so fast
no one stops to let you pass
they push and shove just to get their share
the young ones want it all tonight
they’ve got the money and the right
to take them as they may care
The simple things mean nothing now
folk only stop to stare
at tv adds and trashy rags, windows wares on display
in advertising lights and neon glare
while friendship melts away thrown away

But don’t mind me
I’m just an old fashioned guy
who would like to have the wind blow in my hair
by brimming streams flowing, by
trees in the sunshine, reaching out
to touch the morning air

In our lives and in our time
let us keep what is fine
and everyone can learn and know
of all that’s good under the sky
and sit and watch life go by
in a place we call our own
where late at night when you walk there will be
somewhere you can go
with time to give to all who pass nothing taken nothing asked
just share a little love along the road
before its all gone away thrown away

But don’t mind me
I’m just an old fashioned guy
who would like to have the wind blow in my hair
by brimming streams flowing, by
trees in the sunshine, reaching out
to touch the morning air.
