about

Greg Murray and the Seven Wonders Ros Comain, Ireland

Greg Murray finds a way of telling his tales through his songs with love, forgiveness and a bit of wry humour. Wistful tales, like anecdotes in sepia, paint pictures of the people he has known and his life and times here in this world. Moments that are rich and meaningful, harmonies that are of the earth and stars. Come into the garden, and be a part of the landscape that he has created. ... more

Track Name: Edge
If you take your pen
Out and scribble your
Name here you never know
When we’ll cross again
On your global travels
You’re gone again
No time to spend
Talking to me

We made it work when a whole lot fell
We lost the edge to catch the weary out
And all the colours blend to black
Keep your head
The only one like your oldest son
When you’re the only one to have begun
And you’re standing at the sink
With your make-up on

If you take your bible
Out complete the picture
Since time began repercussions
Explain to me what you think’s wrong with
Me memory won’t help me

We made it work when a whole lot fell
We lost the edge to catch the weary out
And all the colours blend to black
Keep your head
The only one like your oldest son
When you’re the only one to have begun
And you’re standing at the sink
With your make-up on

We made it work when a whole lot fell
We lost the edge to catch the weary out
And all the colours blend to black
Keep your head
The only one like your oldest son
When you’re the only one to have begun
And you’re standing at the sink
With your make-up on
Track Name: Dining
Dining with you
I can’t get over
Panic blinded as ever before
Trigger testosterone
I never had
And everything
Floods back into focus

When you begin living anew again undo the chains tied to
the funeral you wore your heart I only
borrowed it

Negative are the feelings I remember
Magnelite is what’s needed
In the thick of it
Accurate to light the tunnel like a needle
Piercing light
A lazy night by the fire side

When you begin living anew again undo the chains tied to
the funeral you wore your heart I only
borrowed it
Track Name: The Gathering
Pride was torn love unaccustomed
Drive the stake I apologise
To the walls I’ll derive
My cantor and harmonise
To the flaws no fault of my own
To the barriers they’re mine to bear
And the insect divides my funeral rites
I’d repent if I can

So come be counted
Come to the gathering
Come be counted
The obvious option eludes me
Some and most of the time

But captors are
We we defend our own
For fear of years alone
Myth or fact it’s all an act
An act I’ll try and better
And the years are fraught with fear
No purpose no purpose

So come be counted
Come to the gathering
Come be counted
The obvious option eludes me
Some and most of the time

Divide and conquer
I don’t believe in anyone else
To know is to know
That my heart never melts
And I need you inside
To monger my motives
Hide a part of me
You know I can’t decide
A victim of the system I am
In spite I’ll never forgive
But I need you inside I need you inside

So come be counted
Come to the gathering
Come be counted
The obvious option eludes me
Some and most of the time
So come be counted
Come to the gathering
Come be counted
The obvious option eludes me
Some and most of the time
Track Name: Go Honey
I would have thought
That you would have made
A scene or two
Of differences too
We’ve come through so good
I’m reaching out for you
It’s true
I’m one domestic boy
And you’re Helen of Troy
Replaying history
The way it’s meant to be
We’ve come through so good
I’m reaching out for you
That makes two

Go honey
Fa-so-la-te go honey
Far as you can go honey
You will never know

Go honey
Fa-so-la-te go honey
Far as you can go honey
You will never know

Someone should’ve said
The world was not your oyster
You must have been so gullible
In your earlier existence
And you are one of one
One of one makes two
I’m reaching out for you
The mirrors on the ceiling
Do justice to your feelings
You’re squinting your eyeballs
In the ultra violet toilets
But your veins are invisible
Eni-meani-minee mo
It takes you

Go honey
Fa-so-la-te go honey
Far as you can go honey
You will never know

Go honey
Fa-so-la-te go honey
Far as you can go honey
You will never know

Go honey
Fa-so-la-te go honey
Far as you can go honey
You will never know
Track Name: Young
You got what you wanted
And it almost seems a lifetime away
I got a smack in the mouth
And I can still feel the bruise today
I never needed you
You see I’ve gone right off you
Gone up market
I’ll watch some television
Some mindless television
Take me away

How can you be so cold
And heartless and old
Don’t you know you’re young
How can you be so cold
And heartless and old
Don’t you know you’re young

You’ve got a new perspective
A new way about everything
You got a way about you
I could see myself suffering
Maybe I’ve lost myself
Maybe I’m so obvious
At least I humour you
At least I try to take you away

How can you be so cold
And heartless and old
Don’t you know you’re young
How can you be so cold
And heartless and old
Don’t you know you’re young

How can you be so cold
And heartless and old
Don’t you know you’re young
How can you be so cold
And heartless and old
Don’t you know you’re young
Track Name: Orange Peel
I could take you to foreign places
Where the weird and wonderful live
And I could tell you stories
To make your worries disappear
Aborigines in Australia
Claim to understand dream time
But me I believe in dead time
That’s when we know it’s our time

I feel there’s something wrong with me
I want it to take hold death
By old age or a stroke
I’ll never give up hope

I could creep into your bedroom
And flip through your photographs
I could be in the bed with you
And you wouldn’t stand a chance
And I could follow your every move
For you live in my head

I feel there’s something wrong with me
I want it to take hold death
By old age or a stroke
I’ll never give up hope
Track Name: Homemaker
Should you be the jewel of the sea
But you can’t help it
Or the star of the County Down
Someone told me the story
Like a satellite spinning orbits
Circling out of control

You could fit this place the way it ought to be
You’re a homemaker
That’s all I want to be
That’s all I ever wanted to be

You’re my right hand you’re my honesty
You’re so slippery
Dying stars so spirited
You’re a window I see through you
A book that nobody reads
And everything comes to you so easily

You could fit this place the way it ought to be
You’re a homemaker
That’s all I want to be
That’s all I ever wanted to be

You could fit this place the way it ought to be
You’re a homemaker
That’s all I want to be
That’s all I ever wanted to be
