    The Waterboys - This Is The Sea, This Is The Sea (1985)

    Lyrics:

    These things you keep
    You'd better throw them away
    You wanna turn your back
    On your soulless days
    Once you were tethered
    And now you are free
    Once you were tethered
    Well now you are free
    That was the river
    This is the sea!

    Now if you're feelin' weary
    If you've been alone too long
    Maybe you've been suffering from
    A few too many
    Plans that have gone wrong
    And you're trying to remember
    How fine your life used to be
    Running around banging your drum
    Like it's 1973
    Well that was the river
    This is the sea

    Now you say you've got trouble
    You say you've got pain
    You say've got nothing left to believe in
    Nothing to hold on to
    Nothing to trust
    Nothing but chains
    You're scouring your conscience
    Raking through your memories
    Scouring your conscience
    Raking through your memories
    But that was the river
    This is the sea, yeah

    Now i can see you wavering
    As you try to decide
    You've got a war in your head
    And it's tearing you up inside
    You're trying to make sense
    Of something that you just can't see
    Trying to make sense now
    And you know you once held the key
    But that was the river
    And this is the sea
    Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

    Now i hear there's a train
    It's coming on down the line
    It's yours if you hurry
    You've got still enough time
    And you don't need no ticket
    And you don't pay no fee
    No you don't need no ticket
    You don't pay no fee
    Because that was the river
    And this is the sea

    That was the river...
    This is the sea...

    Behold the sea

    The Waterboys live in Athens - Piraeus 117 Academy

    I pictured a rainbow
    You held it in your hands
    I had flashes
    But you saw the plan
    I wandered out in the world for years
    While you just stayed in your room
    I saw the crescent
    You saw the whole of the moon
    The whole of the moon
    Hmm, you were there in the turnstiles, with the wind at your heels
    You stretched for the stars and you know how it feels to reach too high
    Too far
    Too soon
    You saw the whole of the moon
    I was grounded
    While you filled the skies
    I was dumbfounded by truth
    You cut through lies
    I saw the rain dirty valley
    You saw Brigadoon
    I saw the crescent
    You saw the whole of the moon
    I spoke about wings
    You just flew
    I wondered, I guessed and I tried
    You just knew
    I sighed
    But you swooned, I saw the crescent
    You saw the whole of the moon
    The whole of the moon
    with a torch in your pocket and the wind at your heels
    You climbed on the ladder and you know how it feels to get too high
    Too far
    Too soon
    You saw the whole of the moon
    The whole of the moon, hey yeah!
    Unicorns and cannonballs, palaces and piers
    Trumpets, towers and tenements
    Wide oceans full of tears
    Flags, rags ferryboats
    Scimitars and scarves
    Every precious dream and vision
    Underneath the stars, yes, you climbed on the ladder
    With the wind in your sails
    You came like a comet
    Blazing your trail too high
    Too far
    Too soon
    You saw the whole of the moon

    6:13

    Come with me
    on a journey beneath the skin
    Come with me
    on a journey under the skin
    We will look together
    for the Pan within

    Close your eyes
    breathe slow we'll begin
    Close your eyes
    breathe slow and we will begin
    To look together
    for the Pan within

    swing your hips
    loose your head, and let it spin
    Swing your hips
    loose you head, and let it spin
    And we will look together
    for the Pan within

    Close your eyes
    breathe slow and we will begin
    Close your eyes
    breathe slow and we will begin
    To look together
    for the Pan within

    Put your face in my window
    breathe a night full of treasures
    The wind is delicious
    sweet and wild with the promise of pleasure
    The stars are alive
    and nights like these
    Were born to be
    sanctified by you and me
    Lovers, thieves, fools and pretenders
    and all we gotta do is surrender

    Come with me
    on a journey under the skin
    Come with me
    on a journey under the skin
    And we will look together
    for the Pan within
    When to be with you
    is not a sin
    When to be with you, oh just to be with you
    is not a sin
    We will look together
    for the Pan within

    Song lyrics to Too Close To Heaven:
    All your trouble will be over, so will your pain
    you are gonna see those blue skies bursting right through the rain
    The higher you climb, the lower you fall
    You got too close to heaven, that's all

    Now in the morning you can cry all you want to
    - we'll spend the whole day weeping
    Right now I want you to lay down your weary head
    and let me see you sleeping
    You've been walking around baby, inflamed and ashamed
    feeling like you're one inch tall
    You got too close to heaven, that's all

    You're way too hard on yourself baby
    - you got some pretty basic things wrong
    You wouldn't believe me if I told you why I wrote you into this song
    You're looking at your heart baby, and you're calling it black
    but like Icarus and like Saul
    You got too close to heaven, that's all

    Now I know this hurt you're feeling - I've felt these same things too
    I've got spaces way down deep inside of me that are just the same as you
    You wanna wrap your arms around your head, turn out the lights
    and roll yourself into a ball
    You got too close to heaven, that's all

    Are you blinded by the brilliance ?
    Are you dazzled by the Light ?
    Why is it I see nothing but emptiness in your tired beaten eyes
    that once were bright
    I know you just can't help but run when you hear that sweet voice call
    You got too close to heaven, that's all

    I walked a mile for you baby
    so won't you smile for me baby ?

    THE WATERBOYS

  • THE WATERBOYS - Peace Of Iona

    6:29

    The Waterboys are a band formed in 1983 by Mike Scott. The band's membership, past and present, has been composed mainly of musicians from Scotland, Ireland and England. Edinburgh, London, Dublin, Spiddal,New York, and Findhorn have all served as homes for the group. The band has played in a number of different styles, but their music is a mix of Celtic folk music with rock and roll.

    Universal Hall is a 2003 album released by The Waterboys. It is named after the theatre and performance hall at the Findhorn Foundation, which is pictured on the album cover. The album shows much more influence from folk music than its predecessor, A Rock in the Weary Land. It is the first Waterboys album to feature Steve Wickham since Room to Roam, and therefore the first Waterboys album with all three core members of the post-reunion band.
    Mike Scott describes the album as a record containing one Irish reel and eleven spiritual songs that articulate - to the best of my ability - the vision that drives, challenges, sustains and transforms me. It's an album full of love and fire. Peace Of Iona is the 5th track of the album.

    Lyrics:
    Peace of the glancing dancing waves
    Peace of the white sands
    Peace of Iona

    Peace of the singing wind
    Peace of the stones
    Peace of Iona

    Iona

    Peace of the crying gulls
    Peace of the humming bees
    Peace of the noon-time stillness

    Peace of the dreaming hills
    Peace of the breath of angels
    Peace of Iona

    Iona
    Iona

    Peace of the saints and seekers
    Peace of the monks and Druids
    Peace of the resting place of kings

    Peace of the ruins
    Peace of the doves in the bell tower
    Peace of Iona

    Iona
    Iona

    Peace of the rested mind
    Peace of the glad heart
    Peace of my lover's pots and potions

    Peace of her healing hands
    Peace of her lazy laughter
    Peace of Iona

    Peace of the unseen
    Peace of the spirit
    Peace of Iona

    Peace of the unseen
    Peace of the spirit
    Peace of Iona

    Peace of the unseen
    Peace of the spirit
    Peace of Iona

    Peace of the unseen
    Peace of Iona

    Iona..

    You cant touch me now, can't touch me now can't touch me now

    Come with me on a journey beneath the skin (x2)
    We will look together for the Pan within
    Close your eyes, breath slow and we will begin (x2)

    Utrecht 17-03-2012

    Do you see them coming through fields of snow?
    do you see them riding through fields of snow?
    One rides for a woman who has no name
    one rides for a king
    And one just rides and rides and rides and rides
    for the girl in the swing

    They race like phantoms in the Belmont light
    you see them follow the Belmont light
    They ride through places where the walls are white
    where the noble voices of women sing
    A brace of thanks and silent night
    and a song for the girl in the swing

    Well, you just asked me do I know what love is
    well, sure I know, sure I know what love is
    It's the thief of sleep, a boy and his dog
    a red rubber ball, these old foolish things
    A rain that falls a long, long way from home
    it lives in the girl in the swing!
    It lives in the girl in the swing...

  • The Waterboys: Fishermans Blues

    4:56

    Como canción de fin de semana os propongo este blues del pescador, obra de los conocidos grandes-desconocidos, The Waterboys, del inconmensurable Mike Scott, un tema cargado de reminiscencias celtas de aires alegres y desenfadados, aromas a taberna de puerto marinero, humo de cigarros y olor a güisqui.
    Alfredo Webmaster


    Querría ser pescador
    y vagar por los mares,
    lejos de tierra firme
    y sus amargos recuerdos,
    sacando mi línea dulce
    con abandono y amor.
    Sin techo que me contenga
    salvo el cielo estrellado arriba,
    con luz en mi cabeza,
    contigo en mis brazos...
    Querría ser maquinista
    en un tren que rueda febril
    de cabeza hacia el interior
    como un cañón en la lluvia.
    Con el traqueteo de los rieles
    y el ardor del carbón.
    Contar los pueblos que pasan en un parpadeo
    y la noche que está llena de alma;
    con luz en mi cabeza,
    contigo en mis brazos...
    Y sé que me liberaré
    de las ataduras que me retienen
    y las cadenas en torno a mí
    caerán, finalmente,
    y ese día grande y fatal
    te llevaré en mi mano,
    montaré en un tren,
    seré el pescador.
    Con luz en mi cabeza,
    tú en mis brazos...
    Luz en mi cabeza,
    tú en mis brazos.
    Luz en mi cabeza,
    tú...
    Con luz en mi cabeza,
    tú en mis brazos...

    Si buscamos canciones capaces de elevar el espititu y definir un carrera, este hit de The Waterboys estaría en la lista. Primer single del exitoso “This Is The Sea” editado en 1985, ni el disco ni la canción han envejecido en la voz de Mike Scott y el violín de Steve Wickham. Actuación legendaria en La Hora Musa. Sin exagerar.

    The Waterboys' long-awaited new album Modern Blues was released on January 19th outside the US & Canada. The album was recorded in Nashville, produced by Mike Scott and mixed by the great Bob Clearmountain. Modern Blues is an electric, soulful, bold, freewheeling rock'n'roll record with a skinful of killer new songs, some of which have been premiered live over the past few years. Ralph Salmins, a mainstay on drums for the past four years, appears alongside the talismanic Steve Wickham, who weaves a dizzying fuzz fiddle spell on several tracks. Fresh to the ranks are Memphis keyboard player “Brother” Paul Brown and David Hood, legendary bassist from Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Additional lead guitars are played by 2013 US Waterboy Jay Barclay and Austin soul guitarist Zach Ernst. Guest backing vocalists include southern soul legend Don Bryant. The album cover is a green man photograph titled The King Of Weeds, by New York artists Kahn and Selesnick. Modern Blues will be accompanied by a worldwide tour.

  • The Waterboys - Spirit

    4:13

    The Waterboys - Spirit (long version), This Is The Sea (2004)

    Lyrics:

    Man gets tired
    Spirit don't
    Man surrenders
    Spirit won't
    Man crawls
    Spirit flies
    Spirit lives when man dies

    Man seems
    Spirit is
    Man dreams
    Spirit lives
    Man is tethered
    Spirit is free
    What spirit is man can be
    What spirit is man can be
    What spirit is man can be

    Now we tread the fresh fields,
    The higher ground and the summer slopes
    That man may someday climb on
    Now we tread the fresh fields
    The higher ground and the summer slopes
    That man may someday climb on
    We're on the heels of Rimbaud
    We are in the swing
    Chandelier-like dancing
    And we feel everything
    High on the wine of life
    High on the wine of life
    Untethered and free
    Untethered and free
    Untethered and free
    Untethered and free
    What spirit is man can be
    Man can be
    Man can be
    Man can be

  • The Waterboys - Down Through The Dark Streets

    9:09

    The Waterboys are a folk rock band formed in 1983 by Mike Scott. The band's membership, past and present, has been composed mainly of musicians from Scotland, Ireland and England, with Edinburgh, London, Dublin, Spiddal, New York and Findhorn serving as homes for the group. They have explored a number of different styles, but their music is mainly a mix of Celtic folk music with rock and roll.

    Lyrics :

    Down by old house, over the bridge
    Down through the dark streets, where we used to live
    Out by the cornfield and the sycamore trees
    Down to the water, will you come, lassie please?

    There's a place there by the river, I never showed you before
    But when I'm far away, that's where I go
    Outside it's lamplight, high time we leave
    Winter-a-borning, will you come lassie, please?

    Snow in the town square, December afternoon
    Christmas lights, a crescent moon
    A boy selling chestnuts, roasted and brown
    Dropping black cinders, that hiss on the ground

    You and I stand like strangers in our hokusai clothes
    Like we come from some strange country that nobody else knows
    And to go where the wind blows, are just the words of thieves
    So, will you come with me, lassie, will you come lassie, please?

    The big blue sea between us, is thousands of miles
    It's cruel I know but you just have to smile
    I'd be back for you, if I could just believe
    That everything is right and pure

    That everything is right and pure
    That everything is right and pure
    Will you come, lassie, please?
