Track 11 on my album "HEARTSONG OF THE PHOENIX"

lyrics

"MOONCLAN" by NIamh O Brien Rhiannon

(Rill a diddle diddle, dum a diddle dum a diddle
Dum a da, dumma dumma da) x 2

Cradled by the Stars above, hung in a tented Sky of deepest blue
Rounded by an Orange Peel Moon so full and Ripe with hue
In the company of an Irish Clan…invited by the Bogman

(Chorus)

Music lifted my Spirit as the tunes began
Joy poured upon the wing and my Heart bloomed to sing
My eyes danced with smiles and the air filled with song
And my Soul whispered…”I finally belong….”

…To the Music, to the Night and to the Glow
That throws its Golden Shadows on the faces here below
I belong to the Storyteller’s lilt and turn of phrase
And the fiddler’s wild bowing and his consecrated gaze…

(Chorus)

As the Night breezes rustled, the Clan gathered in
To huddle by the firefly sparks as they curled and grinned
And story and song filled each other’s thirst for a sense of earthen place
And you surprised me with the kindness in your face…

(Chorus)

My eyes danced with smiles and the air filled with song
And my Soul whispered …
“I finally belong …”

And Our Music Sings my Soul up far into the Sky
As the Dawn Chorus Sings me Lullaby….
