Following several requests here are the lyrics to the songs on 'Beekeeper' 


THE SONG OF LOST THINGS

Remember the Days we walked down by the River

We’d catch a little trout and maybe catch another

And all the while the stream goes gently bubbling by.....

We’d gather up the twigs and set to light A fire,

The Sun in the Sky is climbing higher and higher

And all the while the stream goes gently tumbling by...

Rosaleen Where are you? Rosaleen Where are you?

Then there were the times we’d go climbing on the Mountain

Looking at the Stars and then we’d start a counting.

One Two Three Four Five and on she goes....


You take out a Map and I'll take out a compass

Looking for a clue or something that will help us

Find our merry way back Home...


Many’s the lovely Day out walking by the Ocean

Sharing all our Dreams and all our Wonderful Notions,

The Gulls are laughing, all the while the tide is rolling in...

And We Dance in the sand as we contemplate Nature

And the Moon comes up like a Complicated Creature

And Shines her pale light down upon Us all.


Rosaleen Where are you? Rosaleen Where are you?


SILENCE OF A SUNDAY ( lyrics Steve and Tim Bryant)


In the silence of a Sunday after the Storm

the Flag poles ringing, the congregation gone

I did something Bad I caused some harm

to one as Bad as Bad can be

Pretty Pocket watch and Alligator shoes

Big city breath, stinking with booze

My grip was tight how could I refuse

He was as bad as bad can be

Now My song is tough to sing,

My story’s hard to tell

He Promised me Heaven but took me to Hell

Now the truth will come out like the ringing of a bell

He was as Bad as Bad can be

'The Whole wide world’s a gallows' the Carpenter said

And I’ll dance in the breeze ‘til they reckon Im dead

so Wrap me up in Roses and send me off to Bed

He was as Bad as Bad can be.

The Bottle is empty the whiskey's all Gone

Our damn lives are tattered and torn

upon my head a crown of scorn

He was as Bad as Bad can be.

Down by the water the river runs deep

the darkening pools have secrets to keep

there’s a child in the water is unable to weep

He was as Bad as Bad can be. 



SONG OF THE RIVER ( Lyrics Steve and Mike Scott)


I cannot sing the song of the river

as to the sea the river runs

and the words to the tune 

of the sea as it turns to the moon

are too long for my tongue


but i know and you know too the song she sings is I love you.


Its five in the morning and my neighbours are all asleep

I should be sleeping in my bed

But I hear the song of the blackbird calling the dawn

and its gone right to my head


i know and you know too the song she sings is I love you.



I would give you lover all these songs 

If I was truly free but

I'm wrapped in a body dressed as a man

with only words and a broken melody



i know and you know too

the song she sings is I love you.

I know and you know too

I'm singing that same song to you.


STOPPING BY WOODS ( Poem by Robert Frost)

Whose woods these are I think I know.   

His house is in the village though;   

He will not see me stopping here   

To watch his woods fill up with snow.   


My little horse must think it queer   

To stop without a farmhouse near   

Between the woods and frozen lake   

The darkest evening of the year.   


He gives his harness bells a shake   

To ask if there is some mistake.   

The only other sound’s the sweep   

Of easy wind and downy flake.   


The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   

But I have promises to keep,   

And miles to go before I sleep,   

And miles to go before I sleep.


THE BAND PLAYED ON ( lyrics Steve)

 Is that really you?

Are you who you say?

 pleased to meet you,

I was expecting today.

I saw you in Florence you looked really swell,

With that hat, you never can tell.

Our conversation was in two thousand and three

down by the river in a big marquee.

And the band played on  and nobody knew,

Just me and you.

and the band played on.

A favorite gun,

a little black sheep, A prodigal son,

tonight a widow will weep.

I'm a man on a horseback

Picasso painted blue,

capturing moments,

moments of you,

A bottle of wine,

a moment of flux,

you were all mine,

I could tell by your books.


I'm an amateur bee keeper

I keep only one Bee.

Hi Bro' is everything OK?

you sure look vulnerable to me..


I must row into land,  I've been too long at sea.

The drinking water's dirty and Salty

I'm not in a hurry, haste cuts like a knife.

the shadows lengthen but my song means life

Thinking of you this fine day

lift me up in your arms and carry me away


And the band played on, nobody knew,

Just me and you.

and the band played on.


LOVE'S  DARK SISTERS  ( lyrics Steve)


From Among the many ways to Love

I was given one a little quicker than all the rest.

Find a Good Woman, wrap her in your Arms 

And together you'll feather a little nest


And When the wind howls 

and the storm bells ring

And the Seas Growl

Together we can sing


All we need is Love and Laughter in the Rain


Well the Sun came out and we wandered along a road

where fortune favors lovers and laughs upon their load

Life was great LIfe was a Blast

No Thoughts for tomorrow 

No regrets from the past


And When the wind howls 

and the storm bells ring

And the Seas Growl

Together we can sing


All we need is Love and Laughter in the Rain



Why did I ever let you go?

What did I say?

Are some of the thoughts that haunt me today

when I was younger

Love seemed easy to Find

Now Im wiser, Im not blind


Storm Clouds on the horizon

And I didn't really care

It didn't make sense to me 

how could they get here, from there?


But When they did and when they Hit

I turned my back on Love, I quit.


And When the winds howl 

I can hear the storm bells ring

And when the Sea Growls  

The wires began to sing


You need nothing, not even Shelter from the rain


I've since become acquainted with Love's three dark Sisters

Jealousy, Anquish and Rage upon my road

Rage is fiery painted she covered in blisters

Jealousy's mean and dark and Anquish is like a Toad.  



And When the winds howl 

I can hear the storm bells ring

And when the Sea Growls  

the three of them begin to sing


all you need is LOve and Shelter from the rain

all you need is LOve and Shelter from the rain



FRACTURED  ( Lyrics Steve)

It's not the mining I despise 

or even all the lies

but when I see the heart of every town I love get fractured


I'm a ghost in the rain

I'll never be the same 

please tell me who's to blame if we get fractured


Thousands of trucks

they don't give two F*%$s

Buddy tough luck  you've been fractured


Fresh water Salmon 

at the mouth of the Shannon

Know GOD not Mammon

will they be fractured?


The rich rule the poor

but beware the cute hoor

turns fresh water to sewer

when you get Fractured


It's not the mining makes me mad,

money can turn good people bad,

But when I see the heart of every town I love get Fractured.
