"Caledonia, you're calling me..."

Woohoo!!!! I didn't miss taping "Celtic Woman: A New Journey" and it was AWESOME!!! I'm not a huge fan of women with high soprano voices but these ladies have such clear tones and the Celtic songs are amazing! I'm less enthusiastic about the regular songs, although those are done very well too. The Celtic stuff just blows me away. My favorites were "Caledonia", "At The Ceili" (pronounced like kay-lee), and of course, "Danny Boy". Except for the later outfits (some were not so very pretty) the whole show was excellent. Might have to look into getting some of the CDs...I bet the Christmas one was too cool. *L* *sigh*

"I don't know if you can see
The changes that have come over me
In these last few days I've been afraid
That I might drift away
I've been telling old stories, singing songs
That make me think about where I've come from
That's the reason why I seem
So far away today

Let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia, you're calling me, now I'm going home
But if I should become a stranger
Know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had

Now I have moved and I've kept on moving
Proved the points that I needed proving
Lost the friends that I needed losing
Found others on the way
I have kissed the fellas and left them crying
Stolen dreams, yes, there's no denying
I have traveled hard, sometimes with conscience flying
Somewhere with the wind


Now I'm sitting here before the fire
The empty room, the forest choir
The flames have cooled, don't get any higher
They've withered, now they've gone
But I'm steady thinking, my way is clear
And I know what I will do tomorrow
When hands have shaken, the kisses float
Then I will disappear


Caledonia's been everything I've ever had
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had"
