Track Name: Street Car
STREETCAR All music and lyrics by Miriam Donohue

Roads go on forever into your back yard,
hills turn into mountains
people into cars
and all is bright and blurry a streetcar named desire
as signing posts ans homeless ghosts hang off the corner boulevard

And yes i love the feeling of cruising round town
I'm stuck in, I'm reeling in the gridlocked eiderdown,
sometimes getting itchy feet means walking out for ten
sometimes it means rolling out the bends

Well we all go the same way like ants unto our Queen
guided by the traffic lights our neon tails all weave
the least detail the smallest scale is lost in time and speed
and we're paying no attention to where this road might lead

And yes i love the feeling of cruising round town
I'm stuck in, I'm reeling in the gridlocked eiderdown,
sometimes getting itchy feet means walking out for ten
sometimes it means rolling out the bends

We all live in boxes, afraid of what we see,
we gave our boxes little wheels so that we felt free
and all is bright and blurry a streetcar named desire
as signing posts ans homeless ghosts hang off the corner boulevard


And yes i love the feeling of cruising round town
I'm stuck in, I'm reeling in the gridlocked eiderdown,
sometimes getting itchy feet means walking out for ten
sometimes it means rolling out the bends

BOOKMARKS All music and Lyrics written by Miriam Donohue

I remember how the pages curled beneath my fingertips,
and the first taste of a kiss,
it seems so long ago,
getting lost between the lines,
folding corners to mark times to which we would return

People wishing on a star,
people making love
People wishing on a star,
people making love

Overcast in overcoats on paper boats we sail,
on a paper... trail
Floating through these cardboard streets we wave to passers-by
Searching for the perfect partner for our little boat,
Carefully we fold away our sails into our coat

People wishing on a star,
people making love
People wishing on a star,
people making love

Do you remember how the pages curled beneath your fingertips,
and the first taste of a kiss,
it seems so long ago,
getting lost between the lines,
folding corners to mark times to which you would return

People wishing on a star,
people making love
People wishing on a star,
people making love

Overcast in overcoats on paper boats we sail,
on a paper... trail
Floating through these cardboard streets we wave to passers-by
Searching for the perfect harbour for our little boat,
Carefully we fold away our sails into our coat

PLASSEY
All music and lyrics by Miriam Donohue

'Howling heaven have washed her and her cargo,
Burning sun has left her out to dry,
Deep in her heart I wonder does she grieve you,
Coming on troubled waters,
Don't you drown"
Track Name: Feathers and Stones
FEATHERS AND STONES All music and lyrics by Miriam Donohue

"So I'll build a stone wall to remember,
this will all still be here when I'm gone..."
Track Name: Waiting
WAITING All music and lyrics by Miriam Donohue

It's a wave that never crests,
it's a song stuck in my breast,
I'm always waiting,
for circles in the sand,
for you to hold my hand,
I'm always waiting"
Track Name: Beautiful (live at Bridgebrook Arms, Thomastown)
BEAUTIFUL All music and lyrics by Miriam Donohue

"Such a dreamer and your head is full of feathers.. and I'd forgotten just how beautiful you are..."
