Charlotte Church Cup Of The Sun

I took a cup of the sun and drank to a beautiful one

And I bottled the clouds and buried them under the ground

I took the form of a spoon and scooped out a piece of the moon.

And all the things that I won I fed to a beautiful one.

And everything is here and everything is yours my son,

You’re a song unsung.

Sing it loud and sing it strong, you’re a beautiful one.

I took a bucket of sound just to spill it all over the ground,

And all the air in my lungs I breathed for a beautiful one.

Gathered the sparks in the sky and held them up so very high,

But when I let them go it’s gonna be one hell of a show.

And everything is here and everything is yours my son,

You’re a song unsung.

Sing it loud and sing it strong, you’re a beautiful one.

Here you are where you belong, my beautiful one.

Charlotte Church Barcarolle

Night of stars, and night of love,

Fall gently o’er the waters,

Heav’n around below, above,

No more we’ll heed the shore!

Floating thus in silver light,

Sing on! Oh earth’s fair daughters

Love had ne’er an hour so bright,

In fabled days of yore.

The cadenc’d oar will rhyme

To the measure we sing,

Till even charmed Time,

Fold a moment his wing.

Wander on!

Till the dawn! Ah!

Night of stars, and night of love,

Fall gently o’er the waters,

Heave’n around below, above,

No more we’ll heed the shore.

Night of stars and of love,

Ah! Gently fall o’er the waters

Heave’n around below, above!

Ah! Ah!

Charlotte Church Ding Dong! Merrily on High

Ding dong! merrily on high

In heaven the bells are ringing:

Ding dong! verily the sky

Is riven with angels singing.

Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

E’en so here below below,

Let steeple bells be swungen,

And io, io,io,

By priest and people sungen.

Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

Pray you dutifully prime

Your matin chime ye ringers.

May you beautifully rime

Your eve time song ye singers.

Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

Charlotte Church Danny Boy

O Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling

From glen to glen, and down the mountain side.

The summer’s gone and all the roses falling;

It’s you, it’s you must go and I must hide.

But come ye back when summer’s in the meadow,

Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow

I’ll be there in sunshine or in shadow;

Oh Danny Boy, oh Danny Boy, I love you so!

But when ye come, and all the flow’rs are dying

If I am dead, as dead I may well be.

Ye’ll come and find the place where I am lying.

And kneel and say an Ave there for me.

And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me;

And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be.

For you will bend and tell me that you love:

And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me!

Charlotte Church Confessional Song

I’m gonna be hypnotized

To stop me from smokin’

Everyone keeps telling me

It’s bad for my voice

I’m gonna stay home tonight

So I don’t get hungover

Get myself a takeaway

And watch MTV

This is not a confessional song

I’m just singin’ to myself

My situations didn’t leave me strong

Everybody needs a little help

Got myself a little dog

(Sasha)

She’s eighteen weeks old now

Guess, she’s just a substitute

But I don’t know what for

I was born a Catholic

Poor father Delaney

Now I’m on a guilt trip

That I try to suppress

This is not a confessional song

I’m just singin’ to myself

Ooh, the situations didn’t leave me strong

Everybody needs a little help

This is not a confessional song

I’m just singin’ to myself

Ooh, the situations didn’t leave me strong

Everybody needs a little help

Charlotte Church Breach Of The Peace

Maybe it’s the easiest way

If we just call it a day;

No more phone calls

That lead to late night brawls.

We don’t even have to pretend

That we’ll try to stay friends.

We’ll just walk back clothes

We left in each others’ homes

And say it’s nice to have known you.

There’s no love left in this machine.

We both stopped operating months ago.

You know this cut is going to hurt like hell

But it’s what we need

Before we cause a breach of the peace.

Before we cause a breach of the peace.

I could colour your lips

With a kiss

But it hurts too much,

Boy you’re driving me straight off a cliff;

So let me fall.

I don’t want to know that I won’t be awake

When you get home.

If I’ve got you

Then my God I want you.

There’s no love left in this machine.

We both stopped operating months ago.

You know this cut is going to hurt like hell

But it’s what we need

Before we cause a breach of the peace.

Before we cause a breach of the peace.

You won’t let me go.

You won’t let me love.

Do you need me?

Do you even see me?

There’s no love left in this machine.

We both stopped operating months ago.

You know this cut is going to hurt like hell

But it’s what we need

There’s no love left in this machine.

We both stopped operating months ago.

You know this cut is going to hurt like hell

But it’s what we need

Before we cause a breach of the peace

Before we cause a breach of the peace.

(I hope that someday

You know I never meant any harm)

Charlotte Church Death And Mathematics

Mistakes

Made by death and mathematics

Allow me to fall

Impossibly in love with you

As darkness falls

Seems to make the whole world

Disappear

These thoughts

These thoughts

Only seem to scatter away

Beneath

Beneath

Daylight but trust my love

They remain

Time chewed up by an impossible and absolute machine

Lets those blinding eyes amaze in my time

And my space

Darling you leave me amazed

If F is more than death

Then what could be the limit?

If C is you plus me

Then what could be the limit?

If F is more than death

Then what could be the limit?

If C is you plus me

Then what could be the limit?

If F is more than death

Then what could be the limit?

If C is you plus me

Then what could be the limit?

If time has no limit

Then how do we define ourselves?

By mistakes
