lyrics

Song to the Earth

Words by Andonis Violaris
Music by Adam Violaris

There’s a song for everything
Music is a mystery
Words add to the chemistry
Sagas told in every key
There’s a song in everything
Humming of a bumblebee
Lapping of the Coral Sea
Music is a mystery

There are songs in our hearts to be sung
There are stories in rhyme to be told

Log drum and the whistle
And sangpipe and the blaedhorn
And sarga and the bodhran
The handbell and the harp

Take up all your places
And join in for the dancing
Sing along in harmony
So heroes can live again

(In English & Anglo-Saxon):

Play gently now, sweet harp
(Mende lae dan midsingend
Gete on citera sang
Gamenwudu hearpian
Hearpung gantan sealmian) - (Repeat)

Play softly now, beating drum
(Sanger ongalanes dre
Singan galan salletan)

There are songs in our hearts to be sung
There are stories in rhyme to be told

Log drum and the whistle
And sangpipe and the blaedhorn
And sarga and the bodhran
The handbell and the harp
Lift up all your voices
And join in with the singing
Accompany timely
So heroes can live again

Look to the east with your eyes
Lift your arms to the bright sky and pray
Great Erce giver of life
Bless this bountiful earth that you give us

Log drum and the whistle
And sangpipe and the blaedhorn
And sarga and the bodhran
The handbell and the harp
Lift up all your voices
And join in with my singing
Accompany timely
So heroes can live again

(Repeat in Anglo-Saxon):

Timpana hwistlere pip dre amahn timpestreha
Hwistlung hrei odpe cimbagli were herpe
Efenhlei odhrang myrge swinsian retorhte
Samodge-iddung wer hildewulf eftboren
