The Calling lyrics

by Méav Ní Mhaolchatha

So many paths not taken
So many words unsaid
Though I travel far, they bind me
In a web of golden thread

Ooh ooh ooh ooh... Ooh ooh ooh...
Ooh ooh ooh ooh.. Ooh ooh ooh...

On the bank, three women passing
They measure time for me
In the mirror of the water
They can but darkly see

I will walk beyond the meadows
With a child in either hand
Through the river’s many shadows
We will pass from land to land

Ooh ooh ooh ooh.. Ooh ooh ooh...
Ooh ooh ooh ooh.. Ooh ooh ooh...

All the promises unspoken
Lie like fallen leaves on the ground
But the thread is still unbroken
And the hidden may be found

When the wheeling birds are leaving
They pass the sinking sun
We will travel with the river-man
Until time and time is run.

Ooh ooh ooh ooh... Ooh ooh ooh...
Ooh ooh ooh ooh... Ooh ooh ooh...

Ooh ooh ooh ooh... Ooh ooh ooh...
Ooh ooh ooh ooh... Ooh ooh ooh...

"The Calling" shows Méav's expertise in writing beautiful thoughts in songs. In this song, Méav speaks of the passage of time which will take place in all of our lives. She takes her children, one in each hand, and takes them through the meadows and from land to land. This song, the title song, brilliantly takes us all with her on a journey through life. Méav is amazing with putting her thoughts in words and this song truly shows that she is brilliant in doing so... more
