Down the line (Written by Fiona Kennedy and Calum MacColl) Down the line, feel the wind and hear the whistle blow Take your time, ride the rails and you will learn to read them as you go You will live and you will die, you will laugh until you cry, down the line Can you see, I'm waving at the station after you And I will be, dreamin' of the future all the things you're gonna do Feelin 'lonely, feelin' proud as you slip into the crowd I won't lose you. Yesterday, we were holding hands singing playground songs Now you fly, never looking back, till you're gone Down the line Years ago, I was riding on this train just like you Ran so fast, doin' all the stupid things I knew I shouldn't do I was looking for the answers, climbing mountain after mountain, same as you. Yesterday, we were holding hands singing playground songs Now you fly, never looking back, till you're gone Almost gone Down the line Down the line....you'll be waiting at the station

Who Would Have Thought (Written by Fiona Kennedy and Beth Nielsen Chapman) Who would have thought after all of these years We'd still be dancing in time  A beautiful spark whenever you're near, pulling your heart into mine. And who would have thought the moment we met You'd turn around with that smile  Telling me then, it's not if, it's just when, we'll take that walk down the aisle. Slainte Mhath Slainte Mhath  Slainte Mhath  Here's to you and me Who would of thought we'd have three little ones,  In the blink of an eye they'd be grown  Waltzing through life with their dreams taking flight  Someday with kids of their own. Chorus  Ullapool, London, New York and Harris The highlands, the islands, aurora borealis We danced through the fountains of Rome Wherever we are feels like home Who would have thought I could look in your eyes And feel like we've only begun Spin me around lift my feet off the ground Here's to the best yet to come Slainte Mhath Slainte Mhath Slainte Mhath Here's to you and me Here's to you and me.

Always on my mind (Written by Johnny Christopher, Mark James, Wayne Carson Thompson) Maybe I didn't love you Quite as often as I could have Maybe I didn't treat you Quite as good as I should have Little things I should have said and done I just never took the time But you were always on my mind You were always on my mind Maybe I didn't hold you All those lonely, lonely times I guess I never told you I'm so happy that you're mine If I make you feel second best Girl I'm sorry I was blind You were always on my mind You were always on my mind Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died Give me, give me one more chance To keep you satisfied, (satisfied) Little things I should have said and done I just never took the time But you were always on my mind You were always on my mind  You are always on my mind

Weaver of dreams  (Written by Fiona Kennedy and Marcus Hummon) There she is in all her glory, holding court for those who care The devil and the angel in my story Shining bright in the public glare Oh She's a weaver of dreams She's a weaver of dreams She's a castaway diva, a Greek tragedy, my Norma, Tosca, Medea and the voice from the gallery She's a weaver of dreams You must be blinded by her beauty Can't you see a radiant dove If I reach out will she fly to me She's just a child looking for love She's a weaver of dreams She's a weaver She's sailin on Christina, crying over Jackie O, drawling with Ophelia with nowhere left to go She's a castaway diva, a Greek tragedy, my Norma, Tosca, Medea and the voice from the gallery She's a weaver of dreams x 4 There she is in all her glory

Trail of the Survivor (Written by Dougie MacLean) Oh they tell their tales to the wide young eyes Of the fertile plains and the cloudless skies But honesty must take the strain Where lives move fast like a roarin train And the shy ones bleed while the sure ones fail On the trail of the survivor  And the trade winds blow through a burning sail On the trail of the survivor And they make their move around the virgin light Leave their filthy stains on the clear and bright But hope can never be restrained But freedoms hands have been nailed and chained And the shy ones bleed while the sure ones fail On the trail of the survivor  And the trade winds blow through a burning sail On the trail of the survivor And sleep will come it comes to us all And some will fade and some will fall But the distance gained is never gained at all And Atholl's children we rise and fall And the shy ones bleed while the sure ones fail On the trail of the survivor  And the trade winds blow through a burning sail On the trail of the survivor

I Am Whole 02:51
I Am Whole (Written by Susan George & Debbie Wiseman) Wherever I am, you are with me Wherever I look, your face I see I can feel you, you're dancing with my soul And I am whole You live in my heart, it beats to our tune  You were the one, who gave the moon Here I am now in a different role And I am whole You have set my spirit free To fly like a bird who soars to the sea A pathway in shadow, or so it seems Looking to find yesterday's dreams In my heart you're dancing with my soul And I am whole And I am whole And I am whole

Not My Baby Anymore (Written by Marcus Hummon & Alissa Moreno) I didn't mind those sideways glances Those stolen moments, getaway cars I didn't mind you takin' chances On a dollar, dark horse, my heart I didn't mind you disappearing, from time to time  Through some secret door But I tell you what makes me crazy Is knowin' you're not my baby anymore Not the one who'll save you Though I always wished it would be me There may be another Maybe Jesus come set you free Set you free, set you free I think freedom's overrated You say loves a chain I know those fields of joy are gated But you can always walk away And I promise I won't follow Or stand forever at the door  You'll forgive me if I cry a little You're not my baby anymore I'm not the one who'll save you Although I always wished it would be me There may be another Maybe Jesus come set you free Set you free, set you free Set you free set you free I promise I will always love you When I'm laughing and teardrops pour It's one step back and two steps forward  You're not my baby any more You're not my baby anymore You're not my baby

Cold Brew 03:05
Cold Brew (Written by Fiona Kennedy, Calum MacColl, Calum Malcolm)   Cold brew, skinny jeans - text you later in your dreams, Slow down, catch her if you can. All alone, a busy station - lost in solo conversation Bet you wish you had a plan. We could talk for forever and a day We could walk but we’ll never find the way Don’t know why, don’t know how – where’s the here and where’s the now? Dreaming a million miles away. Saw a picture, saw a girl – headphones in another world, Another time, another place. Keeping up and looking down – checking out who’s still around, Don’t think she ever saw his face. We could talk for forever and a day We could walk but we’ll never find the way Don’t know how, don’t know why – where’s the earth and where’s the sky? Dreaming a million miles away. (thought it may be good if this chorus is slightly different)   Everyone’s a superstar. No-one’s knows just who they are. Freefall in space and time, hoping that the stars align Maybe this could be our time  Our time chorus

Boy Blue 03:34
Boy Blue (Written by Fiona Kennedy & Nils Elders) They say it's some journey, you're still young Deep breath before you go Be good with your name  Head towards the sun Whoever knows, whoever knows They say that you're leavin now and that you're going with the wind Well she knows the way young heart blows So listen when she she sings A life on open wings Boy blue, boy blue They say it's a blank page, a long way But I know you can do it Yeah there's dangers, but no different if you stayed Dream like a king and bend your will to it They say that you're leaving now and that you're going with the wind Well she trades in a young man's fortunes    So listen when she sings, a life on open wings Boy blue, boy blue It's all in front of you, pearls of wisdom through the years  Just take it slow, remember that I'm here The circle of life goes on and on Boy blue,boy blue Doors wide open, sail on through boy blue

Christ Child Lullaby (Gaelic Verse, arr. Calum MacColl) My love, my treasured one are you My sweet and lovely son are you You are my love my darling new Unworthy I, of you Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia Your mild and gentle eyes proclaim The loving heart with which you came A tender, helpless tiny babe With boundless gifts of grace Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia...

The Crossing Over (Written by Fiona Kennedy & Marcus Hummon) For love of you we are crossing over Planting our spirit on another shore Leaving these mountains, hills, still waters deep I close my eyes and I try to sleep And here is my dream for the crossing over  Watching you grow, whilst running wild and free Seeing the smile light upon your face As amazing falls back into grace The cross, the crossing over  Darkness descends as we are crossing over Still we're afraid of the great unknown Sirens may call to draw us near  But we lift up our voices and sail beyond fear We sing the old songs as we are crossing over Memories of home of lovers lost and found Comforted by an ancient melody Brings the sun through the clouds, calms the seas Sea, sea Sing me a new song Sing me a new song For love of you we are crossing over Stepping with grace upon another shore Leaving these mountains, hills, still waters deep A prayer of Thanksgiving my soul to keep The cross, the crossing over The cross, the crossing over 

about

“I’ve always admired Fiona Kennedy. This is some of the best work she’s ever done.” Burt Bacharach

“It sounds AMAZING!!! A classic! Love the light feathery guitars…and that voice!” Beth Nielsen Chapman

"Fiona Kennedy’s “Time To Fly” is a highly desirable album – with it’s Easy Listening/Upbeat Country crossover feel! … (rendition of “Always On My Mind” has got to be one of the best that I’ve heard!)"
