Thread Name: ADD: No Frontiers (Jimmy MacCarthy/McCarthy)
Subject: RE: No Frontiers Jimmy McCarthy
Needs work. I don't know where the Noel Braul attribution comes from. Songfile.com attributes a song titled "No Frontiers" to Jimmy MacCarthy, and so does Mary Black's Website.
Who's Noel Braul, and who is CC, who submitted the lyrics to the Digital Tradition?


NO FRONTIERS (DT Lyrics)
(Noel Braul)

lf life is a river and your heart is a boat,
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 Emelia, dying to fly

cho: Heaven knows no frontiers
And I've seen heaven in your eyes.

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

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 way.

cho:

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
Where you thirst and you hunger for justice and right
And your heart is a pure flame of man's constant night

In your eyes faint as the singing of a lark
That somehow this black night
Feels warmer for the spark
Warmer for tbe spark
To hold us 'til tbe day when fear will lose its grip
And heaven has its way
And heaven has its way
When all will harmonise
And know what's in our hearts
The dream will realize

Repeat cborus twice.
