Track Name: All Your Secrets
S.Hennessey 2009
Hey, what a beautiful day
i remember your name, it's nice to see your face again
Sweet, do you live on this street
Do you have somewhere to be?
Come see about me.
Say your sweet goodbyes
There’s nobody on the end of the line
Everybody’s tried,
They just can’t see inside.
How about a light?
To play your cards against mine, we don’t know what we might find
The sun may shine!
Try.
There’s a couple of suns
There’s a couple of moons
There’s a picture of you
Wait.
Was it something I said, that got in your eyes,
That stayed in your bed?
Fold your piece of time, into a plane, into the sky.
I meet you in my mind, girl
deep, deep , deep inside.
There is a light,
To lay your stars against mine, to map out where they align
(I will know) All your secrets in time… so come on and let me in.
Please, I wanna be inside, there's a secret to keep,
but there's nothing to hide
Cause Love, is the only permanent thing, i love the sound of you voice
i wanna hear you sing to me
Just give me one night.
To lay your heart against mine
To find out where they align
The sun may shine
Track Name: Grand Bazaar
S. Hennessey 2009
Grand Bazaar
I miss your Grand Bazaar
And Falling for your charms
Oh, the distance we endure
When it’s dark, we talk for
hours
And you’re still growing
flowers
From, the seeds you took back
home
Before This, We were only
thinking of ourselves
Before This, we weren’t
concerned with anybody else
I would like to know you still,
Just ask me to, I will,
Find another way
Are we running out of steam?
Waking from a Dream?
Or like the moon and star,
never seen apart?
Wade down starry streets, so
incomplete, I forget
Stare down the spinning
leaves, from big big trees
I forget, I forget, I forget, I
forget
It’s everywhere I turn
Something doesn’t add up,
You’re not the only one
You don’t deserve this
Even the moon and stars
agree
You’re like and angel,
you’re always watching over
me
I’ll never forget,
The precious stones you
showed to me
Before this, I guess we
thought you’d always be
around
Before this, moments passed
without making a sound
Know this, nothing’s changed
no matter what they’ve found
Before this music fades let’s
dance upon the ground
Track Name: Evergreen
S.Hennessey 2009
Evergreen
Your tone is honest as a stone is.
Heavenly as home is, I wanna know,
How you do it better
In truth, our love is bulletproof
And we can push on through this. We can show
How we do it better
Beam down the automated soldiers,
And they can all roll over,
The ordinary dead.
We’ll stay tied together, always
Dancing on cause this is
No ordinary love
Soon our love will light the moon, dear
And I will hold you so near, then we can show
How we do it better
Time will never run out, we will
Always have a refill, seasons will change
But we’re Evergreen
Bring on the elephants and cayman,
Throw us in the fire,
And we’ll come out okay.
Leave us, floating on the ocean;
Sharks can come, cause this is
No ordinary love
Track Name: There There There
S.Hennessey 2005
There There There
Trying to get some place,
There, there, there
Trying to get some place,
There, there, there
Had a girl and I loved her,
But I chose to be alone,
I’m never alone,
I’d die if I was alone
Trying to get some place,
There, there, there
Trying to get some place,
There, there, there
I never met my father
he died in October
All I remember is
perfume and leather
Trying to get some place,
There, there, there
Trying to get some place,
There, there, there
Track Name: Guns
S.Hennessey 2007
Guns
Put down your arms,
Your secret Guns
to save yourself
Run away, A broken dream is all you’ll
ever see, turn away from me
Even though the problem
is a pattern we created
by the moon
it’s hard for us to progress
when you’re dragging other people
along with you
So, Swallow your wine
Your precious wine
To lose yourself…
In solitude,
Do you ever see your father there?
Does he still know how to
comfort you? Like the way I do.
Put down your arms
your secret guns
Your Father is fine
And so is mine
Track Name: Together Alone
S.Hennessey July 2008
Together Alone
You were made for me
I was made for you
I guess we always knew
When I stop to think
I’ve never felt alive like this
Forever in just one kiss
When I stop to think
There were times
When I always knew
Just what to do
Like I’d done it all before
The seasons change
Like they always do
And spring comes in
And everything is new
I was made for you
You can dance for me
I can play for you
Whatever we want to do
You can dance for me
Take my hand
We’re almost home
Together, Alone
As land to sea
When we wake
In the morning sun
You’re the only one
I want to see
You were made for me For Eric and Abby
Track Name: Leading Me On
Leading me on - Shawn Hennessey 2010

It’s not how my life is supposed to be
Caught between cure and catastrophe
Keep it together day by day
Never thought I would feel this way
Mmm you’re leading me on

I talked to my old friend on the telephone
I told him that I need him, I need him in my life
Told him I’m feeling like nothing’s gonna change now
I’m still glad that he’s leading me on


Leading me on, Leading me on
I’m glad that you’re leading me on


When it’s dark and the vision is hard to see
And I try to listen for a melody
Because the music is the only thing keeping me strong
Said I’m glad that you’re leading me on….


Some follow the stars, some follow the word
Some follow their family.
I follow the sound it’s all that I’ve found
That brings out the very best in me


I know there is a better day drawing near
With all the strange mistakes I make I’m seeing clear
And day by day, I play and play. I’m moving on
So you take all your money and trade it in for one real song
Singing “I’m glad you’re leading me on”

Leading me on, Leading me on
I’m glad that you’re leading me on
Track Name: More Love
“More and More”

You’re an angel; I’m a sinner
There’s a song without a singer.
There’s a mountain, under water.
There’s a son, there’s a daughter.

Just because you didn’t know Him, doesn’t mean he wasn’t there.
Because you didn’t get to hold Him, You can feel it wasn’t fair.

There are so many reasons why Love, takes everything you have,
But if you give it all you’ve got, Love, you’ll be sure to get back…

More and More, Let’s take it easy, let’s be cool, so neither one of us will play the fool
More and More, Let’s make it easy from the start, when we try to hard it falls apart

There’s a top and there’s a bottom. If there were rules, I never got ‘em.
I’ve come to terms with our decision. It’s a perfect collision.
Lots of people, in many places, Feel the same, good graces. Then it changes, in an hour, Loss of blood, loss of power.

There’s so much I want to show you;
Like the light within the drum

And there’s so much you need to show me; the Eternalness of Love

There are so many reasons why Love, takes everything you have.
But if you give it all, you’ve got, Love, you’ll be sure to get back…

More and More, Let’s take it easy, let’s slow down, so neither one of us will play the clown.
More and More, Let’s make it easy from the heart, when we try too hard it falls apart.

More, Love, Come Surround Us
More, Light, Shine to Guide Us

But all I wanted was to know Him, and the color of his hair
And all I wanted was to hold Him, and feel His presence in the air.
There are so many reasons why Love, takes everything you have. But if you give it all, you’ve got, Love, you’ll be sure to get back…

More and More, Let’s take it easy, let’s be cool, so neither one of us will play the fool
More and More, Let’s take it easy, let’s get stoned, and let the music come and fill your soul. More and…
More and More, Let’s make it easy from the start, when we try to hard it falls apart
Track Name: Save Me Some Relief
S.Hennessey 2011
“Save Me Some Relief”
Let Go, Stop holding on
Let Go, Stop holding on
As we circle round the sun, I feel
the clock tick
We always tend to run, right when
the drum hits
Based on, how we’ve made it, up
until now
I feel, seamless, devotion
Can we, surrender motion?
Out of our hands
We make the mold, We brake the
mold.
Conceiving. When does the body
encompass the soul?
Believing. That everything
happens, to make up the whole.
You woke up screaming, last night.
Writhing, silent writhing.
Never so helpless.
Let’s pretend we’re dreaming
Let’s pretend we’re home
Somewhere there are reasons
That we’ll never know
Save me some relief….
Let’s Go!
Hit me again. Hit me again.
I never knew how much i could
take.
You’re my best friend,
I’ll stay with you till after the end.
And the shots keep comin’ on and
I’m holding you down, holding you
down
And the leaves are wet with colour
and they cover the ground.
And we knew that this could
happen, cause it happens all the
time
I wish someone would take some
action, take some action, take
some action… I’m bleeding.
Because I’m afraid, you’re afraid
(Don’t be scared)
You’re alive, we’ll survive (Don’t
cry)
Open your eyes, make me smile
(Mirror me)
Pretend your falling backward
freely, falling backward free
Let’s pretend we’re dreaming
Let’s pretend we’re home
Somewhere there are reasons
That we’ll never know
We’ve been through a failure
Through loss of hope, and more
The storm is almost over
Soon we’ll reach the shore
Track Name: Let's Get Carried Away
S.Hennessey 2011
Let’s Get Carried Away

Maybe I’ve waited, life times
I’ve waited, but now I’ve
made it home,
To your Love, and I’m certain
we’ll be fine
Made in the Fire, Maid in the
Fire, live for a higher Love
And die, and die, and rise
above
Let’s get carried away, with
this Love
I wanna get carried away, with
this Love
Let’s get carried away
All the young Lovers, all the
young Lovers, all the young
Lovers grow
In time, in time, to know
There is a feeling, natural
feeling, that if you ever find,
You’ll never let it go.
Let’s get carried away, with
this Love
Let’s get carried away, with
this Love
I wanna get carried away
|I-------want-togo--on-thistrip---with-you----my-love|
|And-------on-ly you--can-fillme--up-and--let-me-grow|
And it seems our dreams are
one in the same.
And so I’ll------be with you--inthis-world---right-now… let’s
go home.
Now we’re united, now get
excited, now for to see it
grow,
In time in time you’ll show.
I can’t believe it, hard to
receive it, gifted a little soul,
You shine, in love, you glow.
Let’s get carried away, with
this Love
Let’s get carried away, with
this Love
I wanna get carried away S.Hennessey 2011
Oh what a season, must be a
reason, one that we’ll never
know.
We’re so blessed, so blessed,
with thankfulness.
The future is seeming much
like I’m dreaming,
All that I’ve ever hoped, has
come to pass, so fast
Cause it seems our dreams
are one in the same.
