Desperately looking for the lyrics to The Penny Falls, written by Anth & Gerry Kaley, as sung by the wonderfully talented Voice of Ireland, Seán Keane on his album You Got Gold and more recently on Never Alone, thus far to no avail. Can anyone help put me out of my misery, please?? :-)

The chorus is something like this:

"My heart plays host to all these (hopes?), but if you can't recall,
we never laughed, we never danced, we never loved at all.
It seems I must have dreamed it all but I still hear the penny fall."

Verses. Can only catch a word here and there, but something like this:

"Where did those (days?) in ......???? to shake their senses through the stars.
I'd lose you there, you'd slip the bars and find a (mirrored hall)?

There muscle bound proud hammer held (would?) stretch their hearts to strike a bell
I knew you'd found your wishing well and missed the ......."

There appears to be only two verses and the chorus but he repeats the first verse at the end. It's a slow, lullaby type melancholy and haunting melody.

I finally got the "The Penny Falls" lyrics (By Anthony & Gerry Kaley)

In case anyone else would like to have them, here they are:

THE PENNY FALLS             (Anthony/Gerry Kaley   IMRO/PRS)

Where devils dare in chrome tipped cars
To shake their senses through the stars
I'd lose you there, you'd slip the bars
And find mirrored halls.

While fools would boast of flights once made
From dizzy heights to rolling waves
On windy coasts in bright arcades
you played the penny falls.

Chorus:
My heart plays host to all these ghosts
But if yours can't recall
We never laughed, we never danced
We never loved at all
It seems I must have dreamed it all
But I still hear the penny falls.


The muscle bound proud hammer held
Would stretch their hearts to strike a bell
I knew you'd found your wishing well
And missed the Viking call.


While spinning clowns would waltz themselves
Round timber seas in gilded shells
You stood your ground, you watched the shelves
And played the penny falls.

Chorus
My heart plays host to all these ghosts
But if yours can't recall
We never laughed, we never danced
We never loved at all
It seems I must have dreamed it all
But I still hear the penny falls.
