All of the spaces we shift dance around Til the silence breaks Let our feet guess the beat Of the rhythm played The ghost of a song somewhere softly stays My heart hears a cymbal ring My head feels a bass beating My soul sleeps and waits for the sound It keeps safe You won’t break me All of the changes I list move around But still need to make Meet me in the minefield For no one’s sake There’s body and brain, blood and bones at stake If you ever know peace you will Feel a release but still Found something soft for sharp hurt To stick in You wont break me Don’t let love, don’t let love Stop You Don’t let love, don’t let love Stop You. Block you .Knock you All of the time wasted thinking that I’m not good enough For me or for you And for all that stuff If love is the answer the question’s rough Repair what need’s fixing Or replace the need for things Keep planning and packing for trips You don’t take You won’t break me Don’t let love, don’t let love Stop You Don’t let love, don’t let love Stop You. Block you .Knock you

Here round the park again Steer clear of cars and bends When my when my when my Kids grow too old to hold hands Laugh like we invented time Grass on your jeans and knees and mine When my when my when my Kids grow too old to hold hands When my when my when my Kids grow too old to hold .. Hands, I’ll still hold your heart and My grip won’t let go And when plans stand Still, I will Love you more big little Throw your wishes to the wind Grow your list until the end When my when my when my Kids grow too old to hold hands Know the calm before the calm Show your gentle tender hand When my when my when my Kids grow too old to hold Hands, I’ll still hold your heart and My grip won’t let go And when plans stand Still, I will Love you more big little Goodbye bad byes Goodbye Bye baby blue eyes Turn back time

I'm In Need 03:29
You were The crack in the cloud the First sip of wine the Second before sleep The state that I’m in I’m in need Are you blind, can’t you see I’m in need I’m not Killing time It’s thought I want to cut off How come there’s no law To stop me feeling what I feel To stop me being me I’m in need And if I found meanings in Feelings I drowned in Where is the freedom Freedom comes Freedom goes Where you’ve been Thinking I know the word's out now And words have consequences Too late to take back now I need strength to face the faces Without you Where am I free to fly to Take time Take time from my mind And I’ll try unwind Rewind to your line And sow a new word like a seed Change my reply I’m in need There’s no such Thing as perfect gloves The wolves wool was warm love I felt a part of The truth stuck and stitched at the seams I stitched myself up I’m in need

Desire Lines 04:01
I’ve walked this path too long Desire lines My hidden heart lit up Earthshine Too many doors unopened Too many steps left right behind The same things, the same things The same things are troubling me I’ve watched you wear your heart out Desire lines I could try fill your cup up Earthshine Too many words unspoken Too many starts stopped many times The same things, the same things The same things are troubling Bring it the open Out into the surface Give it space And it will shine I want the same things you want Desire lines The love deep down inside Earthshine There is gold in you The glow of your mine soothes my mind The same things, the same things The same things amaze me I want what you want We’re wanting

I’m going to try And be free I’m going to try And be me Swim crawl walk run Ride drive fly Swim crawl walk run Ride drive fly Why look for highs Digging deep Why look for highs Down beneath Still stall talk shun Hide miles high Still stall talk shun Hide miles high And I may lose you I’ll choose to not lose me And If I lose you I’ll choose to not lose me Light leaves the sky But your eyes meet the sea Light leaves the sky But your eyes never see Find bright white warm Sun shine signs Find bright white warm Sun shine lines Lie under overcast skies Lie freely Lie under November skies Honestly Inside outside Upside downside light Inside outside Upside downtown nights And I may lose you I’ll choose to not lose me And If I lose you I’ll choose to not lose me

Pocketful Of Doodlings (free) 03:23
Make something of The nothings and what was I know where I fell And will fall again I stepped on cracks My whole world collapsed And when no one could put me Back on track again You had the knack Of making the earth seem flat And drawing a map on the sand You were my pocketful of not so good Musings and doodlings A pocketful of love A pocketful of love A pocketful of love Can fuel a lifetime of brooding Breathe. Brood (or brood…breathe) Make something of The nothings and what was I know where I fell And will fall again Plectrums and paperclips Loose coins and torn strips Of old bits Numbers and business cards Of people I’ll never call On purpose You were my pocketful of not so good Musings and doodlings A pocketful of love A pocketful of love A pocketful of love Can fuel a lifetime of brooding Breathe. Brood Make something of The nothings and what was I know where I fell And will fall again

Slow Love 05:04
The hook’s in me The hook’s in me Slow love Slow love Light sighs Bright eyes Take time Slow Love There’s no beating heart that loves you There’s no beating heart that loves you There’s no beating heart that loves you More The book’s in me The book’s in me Slow love Slow love Thin lines Rhymes shine Take time Slow love There’s no beating heart that loves you There’s no beating heart that loves you There’s no beating heart that loves you More You took from me You took from me Slow love Slow love Thin lines White lies Take time Slow love There’s no beating heart that loves you There’s no beating heart that loves you There’s no beating heart that loves you More I’d kiss the footprints on the floor that brought you To my door I’d chase the wolves that haunt you More

When did I get so cold? When did I get so cold? You and me know What makes the taste Flavours of sadness Let go and grow If you find it If you find it I found it and let it go When did I get so cold? You and me know What breaks what shakes Sadness to madness Let go and grow If you find it You can find it I found it and let it go And I could do And I should do But it’s easier not to Are you tied up in knots too Has the weather in you made you cruel When did I get so cold? You and me know It takes a break You can bend sadness Let go and grow If you find it If you find it If you find it show me the way home

Untitled 04:26
Nothing but time Nothing but time can take its toll On souls and minds Feel nothing going your way I know that you’re afraid The strong can fade and break The strong can fade away I know the light I know that light can’t shine bright Every day and night Lay your head down to rest You’ve earned the right my fried The strong can fade and break The strong can fade away Every picture you paint’s untitled Every feeling falls short explaining Every encouraging word Sounds polite but absurd No one knows that your world Is fading A church of prayers a ship of saints and soldiers Couldn’t save the day The past has proved your strength You sailed thru every test The can strong can fade and break The strong can fade away Every picture you paint’s untitled Every feeling falls short explaining Every encouraging word Sounds polite but absurd No one knows that your world Is fading Every picture you paint’s untitled Every feeling falls short explaining Every encouraging word Sounds polite but absurd No one knows that your world Is fading

I fear there’s a wind Coming my way, making me pay I’m building my ark Need time apart, follow the heart Pair the best things for you You rolling river We’ll burn brighter than life Don’t know where to turn The river’s too deep, the mountain’s too steep I'm building my ark The old man is lost, to dreams in his sleep Pair the best things for you You rolling river We’ll burn brighter than life Can we just start it all again Start over again Can we just start it all again Start over again A song in the storm You caught in your hand, made me understand I’m building an ark A testament to how you got me through Pair the best things for you You rolling river We’ll burn brighter than life Can we start it all again Start over again Can we start it all again Build an ark again Nothing here dear Nothing here but love

about

Cormac O Caoimh Cork, Ireland

What do…
A honeyed whiskey drink,
A fine cognac on a cold winter’s eve
A warm woolly jumper in muted earthy colours
A colour .. a rich mahogany warm and beautiful
and a water color painting all have in common???
They have all been used in reviews to describe Cormac O Caoimh's 2012 album. He did 3 better since then

"Beautiful beyond words" - Mutant Space
