A Million Dreams (click here for the rehearsal track)

I close my eyes and I can see
A world that’s waiting up for me, 
That I call my own.
Through the dark, through the door,
Through where no-one’s been before,
But it feels like home.
 
They can say, they can say it all sounds crazy.
They can say, they can say I’ve lost my mind.
I don’t care, I don’t care so call me crazy
We can live in a world that we design.
 
‘cos every night I lie in bed
The brightest colours fill my head,
A million dreams are keeping me awake.
I think of what the world could be,
A vision of the one I see.
A million dreams is all it’s gonna take
Oh a million dreams for the world we’re gonna make.
 
However big, however small,
Let me be part of it all.
Share your dreams with me.
You may be right, you may be wrong, 
But say that you’ll bring me along.
To the world you see.
To the world I close my eyes to see
I close my eyes to see.
 
‘cos every night I lie in bed
The brightest colours fill my head,
A million dreams are keeping me 
A million dreams, a million dreams!
 
I think of what the world could be,
A vision of the one I see.
A million dreams is all it’s gonna take
Oh a million dreams for the world we’re gonna make.
for the world we’re gonna make.
 
Amani Utupe
 
As we travel down this weary road,
Amani utupe na ustawi*
We need strength to carry on our load;
Amani utupe na ustawi
Grant us peace, give us courage
Amani utupe na ustawi
Grant us peace, give us courage
Amani utupe na ustawi
 
Road is rocky and the way is dark,
Amani utupe na ustawi
Ev’ry road has a different fork;
Amani utupe na ustawi
Grant us peace, give us courage
Amani utupe na ustawi
Grant us peace, give us courage
Amani utupe na ustawi
 
Halleluhaj, hallelujah!
Amani utupe na ustawi
Halleluhaj, hallelujah!
Amani utupe na ustawi
Grant us peace, give us courage
Amani utupe na ustawi
Grant us peace, give us courage
Amani utupe na usta----- ----- wi-----
Amani utupe na ustawi!

Feels Like Summer
 
 
Time of our lives, wonder of surprise,
the open blue skies reflecting in our eyes
in a photograph, captured as we laugh,
like we always do.
 
Clear country air, ever free from care,
true friendship that we share, 
joy beyond compare,
in a perfect place, see the sunny days,
comin' into view
 
‘cos ev’ry day feels like summer with you,
everything feels like starting anew
ev’ry day feels like summer with you
Aaah, aah, aah!
 
Once you were here, my worries disappeared,
it all became clear, nothing left to fear,
you have got my back, keeping me on track,
like you always do.
 
Time of our lives, such a sweet surprise,
together mystified, ever starry-eyed,
beyond any price, pure as paradise,
coming into view
 
‘cos ev’ry day feels like summer with you,
everything feels right starting anew
ev’ry day feels like summer with you
Aaah, aah, aah!
 
If we get lost on a grey cloudy day,
Let’s stick together, 
we'll always find our way
We’ll always find our way.
 
‘cos ev’ry day feels like summer with you
Ev’ry day feels like summer
Everything feels right starting a new
Ev’rything feels like starting
Every day feels like summer with you, ahh!
Ev’ry day feels like summer
 
‘cos ev’ry day feels like summer with you
Ev’ry day feels like summer
Everything feels right starting a new
Ev’rything feels like starting
Every day feels like summer with you, 
Ev’ry day feels like summer
Ahh, ahh, ahh!
 
Here Comes The Sun
 
 
Here comes the sun, doot ‘n’ doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say, 
It’s all right.
 
Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter.
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here.
 
Here comes the sun, doot ‘n’ doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say, 
It’s all right.
 
Little darling, the smiles returning to their faces.
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here.
 
Here comes the sun, doot ‘n’ doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say, 
It’s all right.
 
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
 
Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting.
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been clear.
 
Here comes the sun, doot ‘n’ doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say, 
It’s all right.
It’s all right.
Here comes the sun.
 

Island in the Sun

 
This is my island in the sun,
Where my people have toiled since time begun.
I may sail on many a sea,
Her shores will always be home to me. [repeat]
 
Oh island in the sun, 
willed to me by my father’s hand.
All my days will I sing in praise of your forests, waters, your shining sand.
 
This is my island in the sun,
Where my people have toiled since time begun.
I may sail on many a sea,
Her shores will always be home to me.
Her shores will always be home----- to---- me-----.
 
Keep You In Peace
 
 
Parts 1&2
Warm be the sun that shines upon you;
Soft be the winds as they breathe on you.
Smooth be the roads that rise before you;
Keep you in peace ‘til we meet again.
 
Parts 1&2
May you have shelter in storm to hide you;
May you have stars in the night to guide you.
May you have ever a friend beside you’
Keep you in peace ‘til we meet again.
 
May you not lack for good bread to feed you;
May you not lack for good hope to speed you.
And for your singing a heart to heed you;
Keep you in peace ‘til we meet again.
 
Warm be the sun that shines upon you;
Warm be the sun----
Soft be the winds as they breathe on you.
Soft be the winds ----
Smooth be the roads that rise before you;
Smooth be the roads----
Keep you in peace ‘til we meet again.
Keep you in peace ‘til we meet again.
 

Lazy Coconut Tree

 
Some folk like to go fishing
Far across the bay,
I would rather be dreaming
On the beach all day.
 
Like the lazy coco-coconut, coco-coconut tree
Like the la-zy coconut tree, coco-coconut
Like the lazy coco-coconut, coco-coconut tree
Like the la-zy coconut, coco-coconut tree
 
Some folk work in the jungle,
‘til the day is done,
I can keep myself busy,
Dozing in the sun.
 
Like the lazy coco-coconut, coco-coconut tree
Like the la-zy coconut tree, coco-coconut
Like the lazy coco-coconut, coco-coconut tree
Like the la-zy coconut, coco-coconut tree
 
I could be a rich merchant, 
in some fine bazaar,
But I’d rather be happy,
Nodding to a star.
 
Like the lazy coco-coconut, coco-coconut tree
Like the la-zy coconut tree, coco-coconut
Like the lazy coco-coconut, coco-coconut tree
Like the la-zy coconut, coco-coconut tree

In-gon-ya-ma 
nengw’en a-ma-ba-la
In-gon-ya-ma 
nengw’en a-ma-ba-la
 
Night, and the spirit of life, calling
Oh oh i-yo 
Mamela,
Oh oh i-yo
 
And a voice, with the fear of a child,
asking,
Oh oh i-yo
Oh mamela
Oh oh i-yo
Wait, there’s no mountain too great,
Hear these words and have faith,
Oh----
Oh oh i-yo
Have faith.
 
Hela hey ma mela x3
**They live in you
Hela hey ma mela, hela
They live in me
Hela hey ma mela, hela
They’re watching over
Hela hey ma mela
Everything we see
Hela hey ma mela
 
In every creature
Hela hey ma mela
In every star
Hela hey ma mela
In your reflection, they live in you.   [Repeat from **]
 
In-gon-ya-ma, nengw’en a-ma-ba-la
In-gon-ya-ma, nengw’en a-ma-ba-la
 
From the day we arrive on this planet
And blinking step into the sun,
There is more to see 
than can ever be seen,
More to do 
than has ever been done.
 
There’s far too much to take in here,
More to find, than can ever be found.
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small 
on the endless round.
 
It’s the circle of life, 
and it moves us all
Through despair and hope,
Through faith and love.
Till we find our place, 
on the path unwinding.
In the circle, the circle of life. 
 
[Instrumental then repeat.]
 

Perfect Day (click here for rehearsal track)

The rain has moved on
And left a new day.
Nothing seems to move, everything is still.
It’s just a per-fect day.
 
The shadows and light
That move with the wind.
Hidden violets grow, 
splashed with summer spray
Just another per-fect day.
 
On the wild and misty hillside,
Fear is nature’s warning.
Hunger here is never far away.
 
[Instrumental break]
 
And all of this world
Is for children who play.
Days that never end, always should remain
Another per-fect day.
 

Scarborough Fair

 
Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there.
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.
She once was a true love, was once a true love of mine
 
Tell her to make me a cambric shirt
On the side of a hill in the deep forest green.
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Tracing of sparrow on snow-crested brown.
Without no seams nor needle work.
Blankets and bedclothes, the child of the mountain.
Then she’ll be a true love of mine.
Sleeps unaware of the clarion call.
 
Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there.
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.
She once was a true love, was once a true love of mine.
 

Will Ye Go Lassie Go

 
O, the summer time is coming
And the trees are sweetly blooming
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the purple heather.
Will ye go, lassie, go?
 
And we’ll all go together,
To pluck wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather
Will ye go, lassie, go?
