Rediscovering The Corrs

August 18, 2007

Now that the car’s cd player is working again – but couldn’t read mp3 files – I had to scour through my brother’s collection for audio discs. I found this old cd of The Corrs – an album recorded from a live performance. Though long overwhelmed by music I hardly recognize, a single from the album reminded me how much I owed The Corrs for singing our songs.

“Heaven Knows (No Frontiers)”

[SHARON:]
If life is a river and your heart is a boat
And just like a water baby, baby born to float
And if life is a wild wind that blows way on high
And your heart is Amelia dying to fly
Heaven knows no frontiers and I’ve seen heaven in your eyes

[CAROLINE:]
And if life is a bar room in which we must wait
‘Round the man with his fingers on the ivory gates
Where we sing until dawn of our fears and our fates
And we stack all the dead men in self addressed crates

[BOTH:]
In your eyes faint as the singing of a lark
That somehow this black night
Feels warmer for the spark
Warmer for the spark
To hold us ’til the day
When fear will lose its grip
And heaven has its ways

Heaven knows no frontiers
And I’ve seen heaven in your eyes

[SHARON:]
If your life is a rough bed of brambles and nails
And your spirit’s a slave to man’s whips and man’s jails

[CAROLINE:]
Where you thirst and you hunger for justice and right
And your heart is a pure flame of man’s constant night

[BOTH:]
In your eyes faint as the singing of a lark
That somehow this black night
Feels warmer for the spark
Warmer for the spark
To hold us ’til the day when fear will lose its grip
And heaven has its ways
And heaven has its ways
When all will harmonise
And you know what’s in our hearts
The dream will realise

Heaven knows no frontiers
And I’ve seen heaven in your eyes
Heaven knows no frontiers
And I’ve seen heaven in your eyes
