There is a video at YouTube and a complete sound file at MySpace, but this is a tough one to transcribe. Here's my attempt; it has a lot of gaps and uncertainties. Nuala has a very appealing voice and energy, which made this task a pleasant one.
[a] Stop. Don't leave this town so soon.
Wait for the rhythm. I can see you're touched by the groove.
Hold yourself strong(?); let it all wash over you.
Let this feelin' come up from beneath your toes.
Tilt your head to the sky. Heaven knows what's up there.
Heaven knows what your future holds.
[b] And it's like finding diamonds inside a cockle.
Divin' for pearls beneath a very fine [or "rarified"?] rubble,
Diggin' for gold, the last place that I saw my guitar(?)
Searching for a soul in a strange ...(?).
[c] Stop. Come on, let yourself relax.
Let your body go and ...
It's gonna ... your head in.
Don't let it end. Don't let it bend.
You've got to ...
REPEAT [b] 3 TIMES.
