Nina has just finished an album called ‘Really Really do’ with her band The Husbands. It will be released in Ireland on April Friday the 13th 2007. The first single 'Flutter and Wow' is available by texting 'music 262' to 57501. The second single, the double a side; ‘Fitness’ and ‘Somewhere out there’ is available as a download on www.ninahynes.com in ‘shop’.
She is currently touring with one of her Husbands. Fabien Leseure, a French musician and sound engineer. Together they make a unique sound that is atmospheric and dreamy indie pop. Nina has been playing with recorded sound since about
the age of seven when she used to collect the tapes of bleeps from the heart machines in a hospital where her auntie worked. She used to record herself singing over the bleeps. She started the piano around this time also and wrote her first song at the age of eight about a man who used to dress up as a woman called 'Big Woman'. Since then, she has learned the guitar and her solo shows often incorporate live-layering and sampling using guitar pedals, spoons and whatever is at hand. She writes songs and music on guitar, piano, harp, computer or whatever instrument is lying around. She tours mostly solo but has been involved in many bands, instrumental, experimental, acoustic, electronic and electro rock. Often, her shows are atmospheric using costumes and visuals edited live to the music. She spent 2004-2006 in college studying sound engineering and music technology. She releases hand-made limited edition Eps on her own label Transplant Records and in the last two years has begun touring solo around Europe.

In 2003, she was nominated for ‘Best Female’ in the Meteor Awards. She has performed on over twenty compilations, soundtracks and releases and has collaborated with many people including the experimental French composer Hector Zazou and Brian Eno collaborator, Harold Budd. Actress and Singer, Jane Birkin ("Je t'aime") has recently covered a song of Nina's on a collaboration album with Hector Zazou. Her first solo release was "Creation"(mini-album), released in 1999
and her subsequent debut album "Staros” in 2002. Both are critically acclaimed in Ireland and the USA (where
she has toured extensively), and up until recently had only been available in America as an import and through Amazon.com, who voted “Creation” number 44 in their TOP 100 RELEASES OF THE YEAR - it topped releases by Sparklehorse, Pavement, Stereolab, Underworld and Tindersticks. In March 2006, her song ’Universal’ was in the final 50 out of 15,000 entries in the most prestigious and largest song writing competition in the US.

William Tell

No pictures on the wall
Just the bare colour
I've had to strip it down
To just the bare colour

I'm not your bread-dough girl
That you can mould in your hands
To bake for your appetite
Cannot be filled by me

I'm not your wife, William Tell
It's when the times are so exciting, I love you
So just let go of your arrows, William Tell
It's when you make it so inviting, I love you

I'm not your bread-dough girl
That you can mould in your hands
To bake for your appetite
Cannot be filled by me

It's when the times are so exciting
I need you...
It's when you make it so inviting

I'm not your bread-dough girl
That you can mould in your hands
To bake for your appetite
Cannot be filled by me
I'm not your bread-dough girl

This Magic Stuff

Be my sanctuary
I know it's not ordinary of me
But I can't get enough of you
I could be in love with you
So be true
'Cause I know
I know, I know, I know you

When you're away
I promise you'll stay in my heart
If you stay
I promise you'll stay in my heart
You'll stay in my heart

'Cause you bring me
Somewhere so beautiful
You make me
Feel so beautiful
You take me
Somewhere so beautiful
And you know it's you

I could be your gambling machine
And you could put the money in me
Can't call the bluff on you
I could be in love with you
So be true
'Cause I know
I know, I know, I know you

When you're away
I promise you'll stay in my heart
If you stay
I promise you'll stay in my heart
You'll stay in my heart

'Cause you bring me
Somewhere so beautiful
You make me
Feel so beautiful
You take me
Somewhere so beautiful
And you know it's you
You know it's you
You know it's you
You know it's you
You know it's you
You know it's you

He Turned The Light Off

Do you know who I am anymore
Do you know who I am anymore
I thought I was covered for eternity
It was my own mother who brought me
From the deep, into the real world
Into the real world

I try to find my peace
I try to curve my niche

He turned the light off
So I could see his star shine
I let the lines cross
Coasting through it
Heart of life

Do you still let it in anymore
Do you still want to love to the core
Do you feel you've discovered something so concrete
It was your own lover that brought you to the deep
Into the real world, into the real world

And try to be released
And try to face the beast

He turned the light off
So I could see his star shine
I let the lines cross
Coasting through it
Heart of life

He turned the light off
So I could see this star shine
I let the lines cross
Coasting through it
Heart of life

Speak your voice I hear
Come on hold me now
Speak your voice I hear
Come on hold me now
Speak your voice I hear
Come on hold me now
Speak your voice I hear
Come on hold me now

Trigger

I feel your everglade rising
My face is raw from lying
Our fears could carry us almost there

Turn over a new page
Turn over a new page
Turn over a new page
Catch yourself falling
And pick it up
Pick it up
Pick it up
Pick it up

One move could trigger an ice-age
Unleashing from the mind's cage
We will our bodies carcass leave

Turn over a new page
Turn over a new page
Catch yourself falling
And pick it up
Pick it up
Pick it up
Pick it up

Your end is my beginning
I won't stop my soul giving
Crash down
Erosion comes your way

Turn over a new page
Turn over a new page
Catch yourself falling
And pick it up
Pick it up

Catch yourself falling
And pick it up
Pick it up

Catch yourself falling
And pick it up
Pick it up
Pick it up

Catch yourself falling
And pick it up
Pick it up
Pick it up

It's as easy as that

Out of the tunnel

Out of the tunnel we have come
Out of the darkness, better than ever before
We had blankets, we had beds
Protection, illusion

You were a warm wind blowing
You were a soft breeze on me
You were a wild beast wrecking
You were such a strong force

I've been blown away by you

You were a sky so stormy
You were a little light drizzling
You came into my dreaming lightly
You were not careful, you were heavy

I've been blown away by you
I've been blown away by you
I've been blown away by you
I've been blown away by you

But we're out of the tunnel
We're out of the darkness
Out, out, out...
Dream...

Bring me alive

Got beautifully beaten by the storm
Uncovered so many layers
This physical manifestation of me is
Not who I am, not who I am
Some clinical analysation of me is
Not who I am, not who I am
And you, will always be here
Yes you will always be here
With you I seem to loose all sense of who I am
Is gone with us just breathing
In, out, in, out, brings me alive

With you I seem to loose all sense of who I am
Is gone with us just breathing
In, out, in, out, brings me alive
In, out, in, out, brings me alive
In, out, in, out, brings me alive
In, out, in, out, brings me alive

Bring me alive
Got beautifully beaten by the storm
Uncovered so many layers
This physical manifestation of me is
Not who I am, not who I am
Some clinical analysation of me is
Not who I am, not who I am
And you, will always be here
Yes you will always be here
With you I seem to loose all sense of who I am
Is gone with us just breathing
In, out, in, out, brings me alive

With you I seem to loose all sense of who I am
Is gone with us just breathing
In, out, in, out, brings me alive
In, out, in, out, brings me alive
In out, in out, brings me alive
In out, in out, brings me alive

Brings me alive, brings me alive
Brings me alive, brings me alive.
Brings me alive, brings me alive.
Brings me alive, brings me alive.
Brings me alive, brings me alive X11
This music, brings me alive, brings me alive
This music, brings me alive, brings me alive...

*** Thanx a lot to Orla for this one ***

Staros

Time Flies

She's got a watch
And it can speak the time
In a New York accent
It says 8:45
And when she's late for work
It's up to you to get her up
It's so cold outside
She'd never leave you
For kissing you goodbye

No we don't say 'I love you'
But I know she's mine
No we don't say 'I love you'
But I know she's mine

He's got a smile
That makes you feel you've won the first prize
His long eyelashes blink so fast before he cries
You trust him when he says
He won't tell you any lies
How times flies
He wouldn't leave you for kissing you goodbye

No we don't say 'I love you'
But I know he's mine
No we don't say 'I love you'
But I know he's mine

Time flies, time flies, how time flies, with you
How time flies, time flies, time flies, with you

Mono Prix

Hey when we first met
I thought that time had come for me to die
But now I see that you had come to bring in here new life
To think that I hear music that I never knew could be
To think that I can see new things I never would have seen

I will wish for you the best
I can see in you
While I watch you sleeping

We've got so much time
We've got time
We've got so much life
We've got life to live

And life is full of complicated situations, hush
I'll bring you tea in mornings when you feel you have to rush
Affection is not real although I felt it with you near
So stay with me while we grow older live life with no fear

I will wish for you the best
I can see in you
While I watch you dreaming

We've got so much time
We've got time
We've got so much life
We've got life to live
To live, to live, to live

We've got so much, so much time
We've got so much time
We've got so much, so much time
We've got so much life
We've got so much, so much time
I will wish for you the best
We've got so much, so much time
I can see in you in you
While I watch the clouds go on the sky
We've got so much time
We've got time
We've got so much life
We've got so much time
We've got time
We've got so much life
We've got life to live

La la la la la...

Universal

It could have been any one of us
You or me
To walk the line of fire
Any day it all could change
Don't see it coming on, it's coming on

It's a crazy, crazy world
A topsy-turvy, upside down, corners curving kind of world
And sometimes, I don't know
Who I am
And sometimes, I don't know
Where I stand

It's universal, I know, I know
It's not less special, to know, to know
Everybody can feel it too
And what's unique
Is me and you

Watching the way things can turn round and round
You need the grace of a tightrope walker
Anyway now, that you can, just do something that's good
Something that's good

It's a crazy, crazy world
A topsy-turvy, upside down, corners curving kind of world
And sometimes, I don't know
Who I am
And sometimes, I don't know
Where I stand

It's universal, I know, I know
It's not less special, to know, to know
Everybody can feel it too
And what's unique
Is me and you

It's a crazy world

The other side of now

The little boy I met today with the evil eye reminded me of you
With his little catapult thing, I gave him a look as if to say "just you try" reminded me of you

All the missiles intercepting missiles meet
All the broken republics breakdown
All the centuries of cities crash
I'll meet you on the other side of now
I see you on the other side of now
I want you on the other side of now

And the shiny streets below the rathmines clock
I was walking to the beat reminded me of you
And the siren came from the street last night
Was trying to sleep, reminded me of you

All the missiles intercepting missiles meet
All the broken republics breakdown
All the centuries of cities crash
I'll meet you on the other side of now
I see you on the other side of now
I want you on the other side of now

And the sweet temptation like a corner shop everywhere i turn reminding me of you
And the coloured ring upon my finger, finger burning, reminding me of you
And the cover on the magazine, beauty shines reminding me of you
How history repeats itself, love is blind reminding me of you

All the missiles intercepting missiles meet
All the broken republics breakdown
All the centuries of cities crash
I'll meet you on the other side of now
I see you on the other side of now
I want you on the other side of now

I want you on the other side of now

Last Song Of The 20th Century

Radios and cars, walkmans, aeroplanes
Electric fans, cyber-sex, your ideal man
Helicopters, floating candles, liquidizers
TV channels, buy it now while you can
Video remote control, acid rain and sugar snow
The butter mountain, ten year plan.

The world is your oyster
I've seen it on TV

And now's about the time
We look into our minds
We look into our lives and see
Who's feeding of who
Who's giving what to
Who is full and who is empty
Yeah, and I'll still be here
I'll be here for you
Yea, I'll still be here
I'll be here for you

Mobile phones and hairdryers
Firelighters, instant fires
Doggy clothes and ethnic cleansing
Coca-Cola signs on mars, plastic breasts
Rocket cars, cosmic fearing gay priests preaching
Casanova presidents, the bombing down of monuments
The papers tell you who the stars are kissing

The world is your oyster
I've seen it on TV

And now's about the time
We look into our minds
We look into our lives and see
Who is feeding off who
Who is giving what to
Who is full and who is empty
Yeah, and I'll still be here
I'll be here for you
Yeah, I'll still be here
I'll be here for you

The world is your oyster
I've seen it on TV

Tenderness

Give me some tenderness
In need of gentleness

The city's such a fast place
You are not made for the rat race
Remembering the time that you prayed in to your pillow
'Til the morning light, it's alright now

Look in to the skies
For the stars within your eyes

And feel the splendidness
Mending the brokenness
You thought it was all over
But you see it's just beginning
Remembering the time
That we stayed up all night singing
'Til the morning light
It's alright now

Look in to the skies
For the stars within your eyes
And feel the sparkle come back to life

Shine

You were the brain child of your time
You could walk on water, walk through fire
If only you knew that love was blind
You'd set up a lie detector in your mind

But see how you fall in and out of time
See how you go blind
It only takes belief to feel it shine

So let it shine
So let it shine
So let it shine
So let it shine

You're married to your TV set
Your friends are in the fridge and on the shelf
If you could remember to pay the bill
You could make the telephone your new thrill

But see how you fall in and out of time
And see how you go blind
It only takes belief to feel it shine

So let it shine
So let it shine
So let it shine
So let it shine

So let it shine
So let it shine
So let it shine
So let it shine

So let it shine

Swallow

Take me out for a little walk
I could be your doggie dog
Thinking of all the things that we love to do
We could make a living
Would you love me if I'm small or I'm tall
If I'm fat or thin

Swallow me
Show me you mean it
When you say you love me now
Love me now

Fingers wrapped around your neck
Walk the diving board off deck
Thinking of all the wonderful unbelievable things we do
I wonder if in two thousand and sixty nine, I will be with you

Swallow me
Show me you mean it
When you say you love me now
Love me now

I know I hang out with strangers and freaks
But no one else ever gets close to me
Like you, like you

Swallow me
Show me you mean it
When you say you love me now
Love me now

Swallow me
Show me you mean it
When you say you love me now
Love me now

Dive

Beyond the words we speak
The sacred line from you to me
In our own minds we touch the sky
Our everyday lives we're keepers of time

You can come down
I'll take you to mine
Take you in to the divine

And when I'm drowning in the sea of me
Will you dive in and save me
Dive in and take me out of the crowd in my head
And when I'm really dead I'll be your bed
You can rest your head on me

Funny times to be
Stigmata world we bleed
But with our own hands we'll touch the sky
There's every chance your dream horse will ride

You can come down
I'll take you to mine
Take you in to the divine

Dive in love, dive with love

Zhivago Blue

Searching for the gold
Wrapped in silver
On a Rathmines road
Didn't mean to be bitter, didn't mean to be cold
Just missing the closeness of you
Sounds like such a cliché
But no-one can do what you do

Zhivago blue, to you I'm true
Zhivago blue, I'm coming to you
I put my foot on the accelerator
I'll see you soon and forget about later
Forget about later, forget about later

Cocoa without sugar, impersonal coffee
A refugee stare
Everyone's crazy and going nowhere
Just missing the closeness of you
It sounds like such a cliché
But no-one can do what you do

Now

He said I only can rely myself
And he wrapped it up and put me on his shelf
It's so easy to walk away
What's a friend then if you don't stay
Around when I'm down when I'm on the ground
Where are you to be found

And I'm trying hard not to be cynical
In a world we are few seem to keep their word
But who am I to say, was I there, did I stay
Around when you were down when you were on the ground
Was I there to be found

And I believe in love
And I believe we can change the world
To see how future could be ours
Future could be hours
And I believe in now

He said "I love you forever sweetie pie"
He said "My love, you know our souls are linked for life"
It's so easy to say
What does it all mean if you don't stay
Around when I'm down when I'm on the ground
Are you there to be found

She's passing by
No more stay here
Forget me now while I disappear
Did I give, did I take
Was I there, did I stay
Around when you were down when you were on the ground
Was I there to be found

And I believe in love
And I believe we can change the world
To see how future could be ours
Future could be hours
And I believe in now

And I believe in love
And I believe we can change the world
To see how future could be ours
Future could be ours
And I believe in now

*** Thanx a lot to Chogu for this one ***

Staros

You were always on my mind
I know I said that you should leave
I didn't mean a thing
I didn't say it from my heart
I said it from my most instinctive defensive part

So kiss me like this could be the last day
This could be the last time you hold me this way
So show me if I mean the world to you
So show me if I mean the world to you

Been living like a hurricane
Into my house, into my streets
It blew my city down
I know there's nobody to blame
Just something so fast could never last

So take it like this could be last day
This could be the last time you hold me this way
So show me if I mean the world to you
So show me if I mean the world to you

You're gone as gone as you have come
I said that you could be the one
And I meant everything
You know I said it from my heart
I said it from my most instinctive courageous part

I will take you with me when I go, when I go

Really really do

Flutter and Wow

You flutter and wow
Now cut up and paste your memory
Highlight the effect that led you astray and send me
Some grace, this page is torn
I'm out of phase, need to be reborn

Look how amazing it is
Look how amazing it is
Look how amazing it is

Look how amazing it is
Look how amazing it is
Look how amazing it is

You're running so far
Just shut up and face the memory
Undoing the glaze that led me astray
So send me, some space
The phase is over
I'm out of sight
Gone to brave the fight

Look how amazing it is
Look how amazing it is
Look how amazing it is

Look how amazing it is
Look how amazing it is
Look how amazing it is

The day is now and belief
Belief is all you need
The day is now

Somewhere Out there

Looking out holding on
Moulding all the thoughts I have
I realise the power now
Begin again, begin again

Touch and go, line so fine
Never thought could be so good
You got me feeling that I could believe again
I could believe again

Somewhere out there
I can believe
Somewhere out there
I can see

Toast the town, lost and found
Letting go of all I've ever known
It happens now
I can begin again
I can live again

Now's the time, yours and mine
Moulding all the thoughts I have
Realise the power now
Begin again, I can live again

Somewhere out there
I can believe
Somewhere out there
I can see
It's you for me and me for you
You for me and me for you

You got me, you got me, you got me
You got me, you got me, you got me
You got me, you got me

Somewhere out there
I can believe
Somewhere out there
I can see
It's you for me and me for you
You for me and me for you

Fitness

We do fitness, we can christen stars
We do euthanasia and life on mars
We do great escapes
We can even clone you

We've great machines who can get to know you
Know you, know you, know you know you
We do amazing polystyrene

You can fix me, I can fix you
Meet you at therapy, need to consume
You can fix me, I can fix you
Meet you at therapy, need

We do cellophane around your soul
You know it stops your eyes from getting old
We do pace makers
We can change your hips
We can suck your thighs to puff out your lips
To puff out your lips, to puff out your lips
We do amazing polystyrene

You can fix me, I can fix you
Meet you at therapy, need to consume
You can fix me, I can fix you
Meet you at therapy, need to consume

Don't forget your daily grace
The wind might change
Don't make that face, no
Don't forget your medicine
You don't want to go before you've seen
Our amazing polystyrene

You can fix me, I can fix you
Meet you at therapy, need to consume.
You can fix me, I can fix you
Meet you at therapy, need to consume
You can fix me, I can fix you
Meet you at therapy, need to consume

Really really do

Do you think we can be real
Do you think we can be cool
It's so sad to see you go
You know we really love you so

You know we really really do
You know we really really do
You know we really really do
You know we really really do

There you go again
Going places in your mind that
If they were a street
Taxis would not take you there

I'm tuning in to your mind
Like guns in the night, or shooting stars
There's no in between
It's a vast obscene world

No looking back, no looking back
There's bars on your window
I don't want to be on the outside
I won't be the shoulder that someday you will look over
I'm looking out to the sea
To see what I'll see, shooting stars
There's no in between
It's a vast obscene world
No looking back, no looking back
There's no looking back.

We really really do
We really really do
We really really do…

Avalanche

Metallic smell of coming snow
The wind is combing through the grass
And the holes in your description of this love
Has shot my plane right of the sky
Slow motioning the essence of a life
Cursing and blessing of a life

Avalanche
Avalanche inside

Now it's the morning of your life
So leave your finger prints behind with the ashes of the fire
You were burning in the eyes of another
Who'll always be love blind
Euphoric bitterness like NY traffic in my mind
Crawling traffic though my life

Avalanche
Avalanche inside

And your fire has burned in through my soul
and your fire has burned in through my all
And your fire has burned in through my soul
Ad your fire has burned in through my all
And your fire has burned in through my soul
And your fire has burned in through my all
And your fire has burned in through my soul and your fire has

Avalanche
Avalanche inside

Moving on

You took me in your arms
You warned me of the charms
To take your holy alms in me
And Winter said that he can see in my hands
I've changed, you rearranged me

And you're moving on, feels so wrong
I don't know how to carry on without you
I held you like a child
Inside the darkest mind

We travelled deep inside
For miles and miles and miles and miles
And Winter said that he can see in my eyes
The seams, the broken lines of truth

And you are moving on
It feels so wrong
I don't know how to carry on without you

You are moving on
It feels so wrong
I don't know how to carry on without you
You are moving on
It feels so wrong
I don't know how to carry on without you

Baby's Eyes

Have to start afresh again
Forget all of the bitter end
Forget all of the loss and lies
Take off the mask and disguise
Baby footsteps in the street
Apathy and Kfc
Walking slowly to the beat
Have to love decay

And see with baby's eyes
And see with baby's eyes
See with baby's eyes
And see with baby's eyes

Programme people like machines
Ten things to do with Vaseline
Ten steps for a better life
Ten new ways to see your wife
Ten new ways to meet a man
Ten minutes a day
You can get the perfect body
And change your life from dull and bland

And see with baby's eyes
And see with baby's eyes
See with baby's eyes
And see with baby's eyes

Mama, mama, can't you see it's me
See with baby's eyes
And see with baby's eyes
See with baby's eyes
And see with baby's eyes

Watch you crawl

I have got you up against the wall
I am staying here to watch you crawl
You heart,, a darkness covers me
Your heart, a darkness smothers me
What was that you said for not to hold so tightly
What was that you said for me to open up

See my heart
A darkness hollows me
My heart
A darkness swallows me

I am going south to see the sun
I no longer wait for anyone
Oh how, the days come slowly now
Oh how, the nights come early now
Oh my God, what have we gone and done
Lost my soul again pursuing fun
Oh yeah, just right there
Please don't stop, honey if you care for me at all
Hush now and lover me
Hush now and cover me
Mother me, lover me
Cover me, smother me

Bang Bang

It's a tender trap
Puts you on the map.
All the fuss, glamour puss.

Bang bang doo doo doo doo doo
Bang bang doo doo doo doo doo

Sweetie's on the edge again.
The trigger is all set
Cards on the table, place your bet
High IQ, high boiling point
Let's roll a dice, let's rip this joint

Bang bang doo doo doo doo doo
Bang bang doo doo doo doo doo

Sweetie's on the edge again.
I've got a gun so get out of my room.
You better love me or I'm gonna kill you
I'm gonna kill you

Bang bang doo doo doo doo doo
Bang bang doo doo doo doo doo

Sweetie's on the edge again

I could be

Take me out, out beyond the stars.
I'm the line in between their cars on the road
Get so chipped and so old
Yet still, I can be the light flickering on the ceiling
As you wake in the darkness

Cover me in your holy grace
I need someone to put me in my place
On the map, get so lost in a laugh and then
I be gone for days lingering on the creases in a face
The light and darkness

I found you, I found you
I see you, I see you

Turn on

You may as well be dead
You're outside your head
I can call your name a thousand times before
Before you realise, before you realise
You're standing in my heart
You're standing in my heart

Turn on, move on

I never know what's real
In everything believe
I will fall again
A thousand times before
Before I realise
I'm falling on my own
I'm standing on my own

Turn on, move on

Your words rubbing off me like snow
Melting, pouring down my hair

Goldmine

The World

I'm for the world, the fight is over
And yes, the world is ours forever
This boat has been sinking but sail now
This boat has been sailing so long

Somehow finding it's working
I'm seeing seeing so clearly
I'm feeling somehow it's all making sense
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Yes I'm feeling everything understood
Nothing left underneath the rug
Yes we've got everything that we need.

Ring out the bell, light up the firework
Where once I fell, I now get up
This train has been slowing the rhythm
This train has been slowing down

Somehow finding it's working
I'm seeing seeing so clearly
I'm feeling somehow it's all making sense

Yes I'm feeling everything understood
Nothing left underneath the rug
Yes we've got everything that we need

Rain

Rain on me
I see the sun through those clouds
Shake me down
I see divide in your mind
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
My enemy is your fear of me
Rain, take my gun
Lead me to the one

Shoot me down
Drink from the well of your fear
Take me on
I'll be your hope and despair

Shame a lonely sword
Takes me to the lord
Rain, take my gun
Lead me to the one

Tarnished

Tarnished the stars that fall from the sky
Yours in one of the best horses
Mine is a love no sinister light
Of boys in white dresses on alters
God was blindfolded when my heart came to you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Death to the star that prevails over all
Fear in the light of day
The young and the old all at the same time
A glittering trail of tarnish
God was blindfolded
When my heart came to you
God was all tied up
When the darkness came through

Nothing ever feels that its good enough
For your perfect private vision of the world
Well me, I've had it all and I've had enough
If its good enough for me, it's good enough for me

And I wash, wash wash my dark heart
In the wide open tide of you

Dancing Suns

Better believe now
Better forsake doubt
Better return back to headquarters
This is your sanctuary
So is the galaxy of your mind
Chasing the day we can't get away
From all the things that make us human
Yes we are weak so we must seek something true
Save the last dance for me
How to accelerate
No need to calculate
Everything might be for a reason
See synchronicity could be life kissing me
When I'm blind facing the day
We can't get away from all the things that make us human
Yes we are weak so we must seek something more
Save the last dance for me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
How can we change in seconds
What do we ever ask to see
How can we save the Winter sun
What do you see
What for the clouds are gathering
What's even sane
Who gives the sun
How come the clouds are gathering
what do you see
Only dance for me
Who puts the sun in sun
What's even real
Real is sane
How can we save the Winter sun

Mexico

I combat for solidarity
Junkies need a place to fix
No submission to vulgarity
And Love is always hit or miss

Sail the boat to somewhere to somewhere like Mexico
Get to where the sun oh it burns
Down down down down dog
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Yes defender of society
Need a language I can speak
Moved by motions of sobriety
To find more than where ends just meet

Sail the boat to somewhere to somewhere like Mexico
Get to where the sun oh it burns
Down down down down dog

I combat for space and just some time more than survival
So we can find that thing inside that gives us hope to feel alive

Sail the boat to somewhere to somewhere like Mexico
Get to where the sun oh it burns
Down down down down dog

Cuckoo

I leave the door slightly open
So if needs be, can get out
I know my way in the darkness
Can go so fast and still make no sound
I leave my hat by the bedside
I leave my boots at the foot
I've got my back to the sunshine
Leave no footprints or traces behind
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Cuckoo
Cuckoo
I see a fire in the distance
I see a silence
A bridge of sighs
Bridge of size
Bridge of sighs
A bridge of sighs

I left the light far behind me
I hold the torch to my heart
I wear the cloak of the starlight, am held only by night,
No feelings to part

Cuckoo
Cuckoo
I see a fire in the distance
I see a silence
A bridge of sighs
Bridge of size
Bridge of sighs
A bridge of sighs

Black Eagle

He saw me as a blue bird
Then I changed my feathers
He could see
He saw I was Black Eagle

When I changed my feathers, he saw me
Now he feels like he's my prey
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The world had lost its wonder
Then I changed the colours, I could see
All I ever dreamed of

When I changed my colours was here with me
Now see how you have it all

See how you have it all
I say men don't know how to love

Safe

When the heat is on have to give in
And you feel like you're gonna cave in
When somebody passes by and gives you that certain look
Oh how it feeds you
You're swallowed up by gestation
They crucify their heroes go unsung
You're safe here
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Poisoned ivy and you're drinking all day
Lose your mind again
Forget to pray
Vultures everywhere looking hungry
Cast the clouds away
Lose the angry
Captured by imagination
You're tuning in to manifestation
You're safe here

Goldmine

There's danger in the morning sun
There's danger in the morning sun
By sunrise, where the crow flies, better be gone

Gold, gold, gold mine
Gold, gold, gold mine
Don't waste your time seeing blind

Money doesn't mean an awful lot
'Til your hungry outside, the door is locked
Don't stay where you're slain
Better be gone
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
That's just a losing game
Money, success they failed me
But I'm a winner, I'm a winner in my mind

Gold, gold, gold mine
Gold, gold, gold mine
Don't waste your time seeing blind

Gold, gold, gold mine
Gold, gold, gold mine
Don't waste your time seeing blind

Over The Line

I showed him my wounds and he took out his scalpel
To breath some new life in these veins
I was looking for comfort instead found a surgeon
Who needed to dissect remains
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And I fall out of my mind
And I fall

I was reading those books that are all about winning
But all I did was lose time
I thought David Lynch maybe he had the answer
Go fishing without any line
I took out my heart and I wrapped it in gold leaf
Put it away for some time
I found an old oak tree and buried it under
In digging, I found my goldmine

And I fall out of my mind
And I fall out
And I fall over the line
And I fall

Amhrán an Síréana

( SnaG '05 - compilation album in Irish )

Ar na haigéin gan cruth
Dhein mé mo dhícheall meangadh
Gur tharraingt do mhéaracha
Mé lán le grá chuig do shúile
'S chan tú "Seol chugam, seol chugam
Tar chuig mo chuan
Seo mé Seo mé
Ag feitheamh ar do láimhe"

An rabhas i do bhrionglóidí
An raibh tú liom is mé faoi lán seoil
Seo mo amadaíocht,
Raic caillte ar do thrá
'S chan tú, "Ná leag, ná leag do lámh orm,
Ó mo chroí, ó mo chroí ag
Éalú ón mbrón"

Mé chomh soineanta le leanbh úr
Mé chomh fiáin leis an bhfarraige
An cóir dom seasamh san rabharta,
An cóir dom luí le bás mo chroí
Éist liom, "Snámh chugam, snámh chugam,
Tar i mo chuan
Seo mé Seo mé
Ag feitheamh i mo chuan"

Song of the Siren

( English Translation )

On the shapeless oceans
I did my best to resist
The pull of your fingers,
And I full of love, towards your eyes
And you sang, "Sail to me, sail to me
Come into my sea
Here I am, here I am
Waiting for your hands."

Was I in your dreams?
Were you with me when I was under full sail?
This is my foolishness,
A lost reck on your shore
And you sang; "Don't lay, don't lay your hand on me
Oh my heart, oh my heart
Fleeing from sadness."

I as innocent as a newborn
And I as wild as the sea
Can I stand in the flood,
Can I lie down with the death of my heart?
Listen to me, "Swim to me, Swim to me,
Come into my sea,
Here I am, Here I am,
Waiting in my sea."

*** Thanx a lot to Laura for this one ***

And the Party Was My Idea

(Michael Knight & Nina Hynes / Youth Is Wasted On The Young LP)

Michael Knight:
So you had a good time
Yeah, Trent's a great guy
I'm glad he drove you home
You know I hate the thought
Of you on your own
I thought tonight we could go see a movie
You never seem to know
You used always want to go
Oh you've seen that before
No it wasn't us
I'm not being suspicious

Nina Hynes:
You shouldn't worry so
You'd be the first to know

Michael Knight:
Since when were we organising committee
And these days thirtieths are hardly worth the fuss
Someone will let slip
Can we keep it quiet
Surely he'll have plans
Or does he have a girlfriend
He's never mentioned
In fact, you know, it's strange
The subject's always changed

Nina Hynes:
You shouldn't worry so
I don't think he'll ever know
He's really not that type
Though at times he might suspect
He's easily dismissed
I've known him far too long

Buds of Spring

Darling the birds sing me home
They sing to me fire breathing hearts

Fire, fire, fire, burn
Fire, fire, fire

Holding the torch
Buds bloom in spring
We suffer no more for all it's worth and brings

Fire, fire, fire, burn
Fire, fire, fire

Where the buds bloom in spring
Buds bloom in spring
Birds bloom in spring

Fire, fire, fire, burn
Fire, fire, fire

Christmas time is here

Christmas time is here
A Christmas cover by Nina and Fabien

Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there

Christmas time is here
We'll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year...

Coronation Street

(Michael Knight & Nina Hynes / I'm Not Entirely Clear How I Ended Up Like This LP)

Lads, I'd better be off now
Sounds like she needs calming again
He's out, why is he late again

I can tell her we talked about her
Though it wasn't quite the way that she'll think
He said he told all his friends about me

You know (I know) there's no other
Who'll keep believing such bad lies
We'll be together forever
At this rate we will
If soon she won't put out

I suppose I'll soon tire of her charms
Unless first she grows tired of me
Our love will shine eternally

Though I guess there're her gossip mags
And her beloved TV
It's time for Coronation Street

You know (I know) there's no other
Who'll keep believing such bad lies
We'll be together forever
At this rate we will
If soon she won't put out

Her skin gives me pleasure
I'll ditch her at my leisure
But I'll be polite when I tell her
"My sweet, meet my new lover"

I'm Not Entirely Clear How I Ended Up Like This

(Michael Knight & Nina Hynes / I'm Not Entirely Clear How I Ended Up Like This LP)

Now I've got the mortgage sorted
And a job that pays well
Found someone who loves me I guess soon we'll wed

Victory is mine
Victory is mine
Victory is mine
Victory is mine

Oh a week's sun in Las Palmas
That would be a nice break
Or we could save up for a conservatory

Victory is mine
Victory is mine
Victory is mine
Victory is mine

Victory is
Mine
Victory is
Mine

In a Million

See with our hearts and with our minds
One in a Crowd, one in a million
Deep in a rock within our heart
Down in the ground I see the stars

This is the time
This is the time to make amends
This is the time
This is the time
This is the time to live

Dance, give your heart unto the song
Dance 'til your hearts no longer aching
Dance 'till you glow and glow with joy
Dance 'till you feel that you're not faking

This is the time
This is the time to make amends
This is the time
This is the time
This is the time to live

Jesus

( Unreleased song from myspace )

Jesus, can you give me back my soul
He took it left
An aching, gaping, endless, restless hole
And a hunger
Bigger than the hope that used to grow
And I wonder

Jesus, can you take away the pain
Jesus, can you take the pain away
Or take me now
He took me out
And all that's left is a shell
A broken deep hollow sound

Jesus, can you send him back my way
I promise I'll be good this time
I promise I will stay behind the line
He draws for me a promise I must ???
But now I pray

Jesus, can you take away the pain
Jesus, can you take the pain away
Or take me now
He took me out
And all that's left is a shell
A broken deep hollow sound

Jesus, can you give me back my day
Jesus, can you tell me why I break and fall
Jesus, can you hold me through it all
Help me to forget the river where we met

Jesus, can you take me by the hand
When he can't
Jesus, can you kiss me on the mouth
Take the poison out
Help me to forget the river where we met
The river where we met

Or take me now
He took me out
And all that's left is a shell
A broken deep hollow sound

Take me now
He took me out
And all that's left is a shell
A broken deep hollow sound

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Laterna

Light, light, light
Light up our lantern
Keep us through the dark night
Moon and stars shine bright
With our light

Bright, bright, bright
Oh shine our lanterns
Keep us warm though cold night
Sing our voices bright with our light

Light, light, light
Light up our lantern
Keep us through the dark night
Moon and stars shine bright
With our light

Bright, bright, bright
Oh shine our lanterns
Keep us warm though cold night
Sing our voices bright with our light

Lulu Mae

Lulu Mae
Do you remember
Under docks (?)
???
I will live sinking
All the way down through
The ship sinking

Is there anybody out there
Is there anybody out there

Do you believe of bricks and hammers
A starting point of stumbles and stammers
I think I hear your voice
Is it you coming
All the way down through
A sign folding

Is there anybody out there
Is there anybody out there
Is there anybody out there
Is there anybody out there

Merry Little Christmas (B Movie Version)

(Flutter And Wow Digital EP)

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
Next year all our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
Next year all our troubles will be miles away

Once again as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who were dear to us
Will be near to us once more

Someday soon we all will get together
If the Fates allow
Until then, we'll have to muddle through somehow
So have yourself a Merry little Christmas now

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Mmmh

( Nina Hynes on Hector Zazou - Strong currents LP - 2004 )

I can imagine
Lying beside you
I can feel your
hair on my cheek

Can you feel
The love between us
Can you feel

I'm not worried
If I never see you again
But the thing is
No matter how far we are appart
No matter how far
We're linked through space and time
And you're in my memory
And I'm part of your history

Mmmh

Can you feel the love between us
Can you feel

Mmmh

There's no pint
In burning bridges
But if it feels
Your bridge is burnt and gone
And the ashes are blowing away
If it feels you're going astray
There's always a river
Underneath
There's always a river
Flowing in
To a deeper ocean

Mmmh
Mmmh

Never Over

(Unreleased song)

When the day is over
Our time is through
I'll stay ???
Through the wind
I'll be with you

In the flame of the fire
In the gray of the sky
In the voice of a singer
You'll feel it we'll never die

Our love is never over
It's never over
It's never over

When the last word is spoken
When your lungs can't breathe
When your heart is truly broken
The winter leave, just bleeds

It's in the flame of the fire
In the gold of the sun
In the voice of a singer
You'll feel it we will be one

Our love is never over
It's never over
It's never over

Our love is never over
It's never over
It's never over

Sewing Machine

I've got a sewing machine in my brain
Working on old tapestries patching up so neatly

I've got a fallen tree in my heart
Picking up the wood for fire
Finding where to put desire

To dream of a life was meant to be
To dream of a life was meant for me

I've got a tape recorder in my mind
Taping up those broken dreams recording over ripped up seams

I have a carnival in my soul
Slowly slowly moving conjuring that magic sound

I need to dream of a life was meant for me
Somewhere out there
Somewhere out there

I've got a sewing machine
Working on old tapestries patching up so neatly

Under my wing

( Nina Hynes on Hector Zazou - Strong currents LP - 2004 )

Chocolate kings lie under my feet
Waiting to be
Devoured by me
Devoured by me

You promised me delivery
You're just using me
Here's a knife
Go on make me bleed
Go on make me bleed

Under my wing
Under my wing
Ladders in your tights
Strange faces in the night
On the street
No one knows you.
You can be anyone
Just chose

Oh my sweet
Come here my darling.
Must be cold where you're coming from
'Cause your clothes are wrapped so tightly,
Makes me want to tear them from you
No camouflage, bare the big blue
I'll caress your ear
Run my fingers through your hair
Like your mother would
Like your mother would

Oh my sweet
Come here my darling
Let me caress your ear
If you play dead
Maybe then
You won't have to feel, have to feel.

Oh my sweet
Come here my darling
I'll take you in
I'll mind you under my wing
Under my wing, under my wing
Under my wing, under my wing

Wild Mountain Thyme

Oh the summer time has come
And the trees are sweetly blooming
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather
Will you go lassie go

And we'll all go together
To pluck wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather
Will you go lassie go

I will build my love a tower
Near your pure crystal fountain and on it
I will grow all the wild flowers of the mountain
Will ye go lassie

If my true love she were gone
I will surely find another
Where the wild mountain thyme grows
Around the blooming heather
Will you go lassie go

And we'll all go together
To pluck wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather
Will ye go lassie go
