Subject: Lyr Req: Exile
From: GUEST,dollydaydream

I found a lovely song on youtbe by Sean Keane, the song is called Exile and the first few lines are something like this:

Now the fire is. low ........now it will soon be time to go
And as the night turns into dawn
Wih the light I will be gone
So kiss me once and then I'll go
Sing my name out soft and low

Does anybody have the words to that song?
It would be lovely to have them.
Thank you!

I'll try to work out a transcription later, unless somebody beats me to it.
Click here for a YouTube recording by Seane Keane.

Click here for the song, as recorded by the songwriter, Kieran Wade.

Nice song.

Thanks for the nice comments on the song, glad you enjoyed it, Kieran.

Here are the words:


EXILE
(Kieran Wade)

1. Now the fire is burning low
And it will soon be time to go
As the night turns into dawn,
With the light I'll soon be gone
So kiss me once before I go
And say my name out soft and low
And as I turn on down the road,
Your kiss will lighten up my load

CHORUS: And though I know I never will return,
Inside the hope will always burn
That we may meet in some place once again
And you and I will still be friends.
The sun is shining brightly on the mountains and the sea
The waves run white round Inish Mór
The ship lies in the harbour waiting for the evening breeze
To take us to some foreign shore

2. The world we lived in now is past
And winds of change are coming fast
What once was holy now just seems
To be a world of broken dreams
So kiss me once and say goodbye
And we will try hard not to cry
These tumbling thoughts going through my head
Will stay forever left unsaid. CHORUS

3. Too many trials, too many tears,
Too many tired and hungry years
But I will not forget the land
Where you and I walked hand in hand
So kiss me once before I go
And say my name out soft and low
And as I turn on down the road,
Your kiss will lighten up my load. CHORUS

As best as I can make out, these seem to be the chords in the key of D major.

Now the fire is burning low and it will soon be time to go

D                        A                G       A         D
As the night turns into dawn, with the light I'll soon be gone

D                        A                G       A       D
So kiss me once before I go and say my name out soft and low

D                           A                   G       A      D
And as I turn on down the road, your kiss will lighten up my load


Chorus
D             G                  D       Em         G         
And though I know I never will return, inside the hope will always
A
burn

The world we lived in now is past and winds of change are coming fast
What once was holy now just seems to be a world of broken dreams
So kiss me once and say goodbye and we will try hard not to cry
These tumbling thoughts going through my head
Will stay forever left unsaid

Chorus

Too many trials, too many tears, too many tired and hungry years
But I will not forget the land where you and I walked hand in hand
So kiss me once before I go and say my name out soft and low
And as I turn on down the road, your kiss will lighten up my load.

Chorus

What a cracking song! Kieran would you mind if I added it to my reportoire, if possible I try to get the permission of the writer before I sing a song. I've just listened to Sean Keane's version thats played in DADGAD which if anything enhances the song in my mind, again a beautiful song.

The first post has these words for the ending of the first and third verses:

    So kiss me once and then I'll go
    Sing my name out soft and low

That's what I hear on the Kieran Wade recording, but those aren't the lyrics Kieran posted above (we have no way of proving the post above actually came from Kieran Wade, but I'm guessing it did).

Brilliant Song

For information it looks like the guitarist in the video is in DADGAD tuning.

Iain has lost Keiran's email address, and would like to sing "Caledonia's Sleeping"

Any ideas how to contact Keiran ??
