FOREVERMORE 03:35
FOREVERMORE Somewhere on this night a Child is born, and Somewhere else another Life gets torn That's Reality can't You see? It's the same for You and Me Now I don't understand it, it's not the way i planned it But if Love's worth praying for, if a Love's worth praying for It's gotta last forevermore I hope it lasts forevermore Now I don't care if it's black or if it's white When something's wrong, it's got to be put right. Hey we give comfort and a kiss, to the Loved Ones that we miss. While a World away is Starving, Hey Ignorance is bliss! But if Love's worth fighting for, If a Love's worth fighting for, I hope it lasts forevermore I hope it lasts forevermore Now he sits down alone with tears and sighs "Why did you have to leave me and never say goodbye?" and then the Old Man starts to laugh as he holds her Photograph and then he sees her Smile, again he's with her for a little while And If Love's worth dying for, If a Love's worth dying for I hope it lasts forevermore I hope it lasts forevermore It's gotta last forevermore I hope it lasts forevermore

LOVERS 03:27
'Lovers' : Composed & Written by Dennis McCalmont Mastered by Ciaran Byrne LOVERS We are Lovers, We are Lovers And Our Hearts cannot be Covered We're not Takers We're not Fakers, We are Real... Funny how a Lifetime goes, and Where it leads You, no-one knows. Right now I'm Sailing with the flow, Now that I've let those Demons go We are Lovers, We are Lovers, And Our Hearts cannot be Covered We're not Takers We're not Fakers, We are Real... You led Me to this Happy place With the Tenderness of Your Sweet Grace I see it in Their Eyes upon Their Tiny Face No looking back, No Time to waste And It's All Right, It's All Right, It's All Right It's All Right It's All Right It's All Right To be a Lover, To be a Lover... We are Lovers, We are Lovers And Our Hearts cannot be Covered We're not Takers We're not Fakers, We are Real...

Written/Composed & Mixed by Dennis McCalmont Mastered by Ciaran Byrne YOU'LL KEEP ON LIVING When You've drawn your last breath, You're dancin' with Death, it's through Sorry if I let you down, Sorry if I was'nt around for You But You'll keep on Living with Me One Thing We'll never know, When it's Our Time to go from Here I Live my Life this way, I Turn Up to face another Day Like It's All Brand New. I try not to Hurt anyone and I always try to.. let the Sun, Let The Sun Shine Through But You'll Keep On Living with Me One thing We'll never know When it's Our Time to go from Here... The Way's not Clear When I feel the Fear, I 'll hold You near.. You'll keep on Living with Me One thing We'll never know When Its Our Time to go from Here....

Sleep Forever I recall as we lay in an Autumn Day When the leaves of our Love Would gently blow and sway The Autumn winds carried away Every word that we'd say I believe we belong in a distant past Where all things of that Age They were built to last Our love was shaped on a Farrier's blast In Iron was cast Memories we'll keep, Secrets so deep But why must we Sleep Forever, never ever, To walk in this moment again It's the Autumn of Life, and Nothing stays the same Except the key to my Heart Which will always bear your name As the leaves fall to the ground without aim, Like a colourful flame I thank God for memories, and Days that have gone When I walked with you In the early Morning Sun Words never spoken A Promise unbroken, and Love like an endless Birdsong Memories we'll keep, Secrets so deep, but Why must we Sleep Forever, never ever To walk in this moment again... Never to walk in this moment again...

Dennis McCalmont : Acoustic Guitars & Vocals Composed & Written by Dennis McCalmont Mastered by Ciaran Byrne at www.cauldronstudios.com THIS COULD BE Another Day beginning, Another Nightfall ends Ain't got no time for Sinnin' I just got time to make amends For I will never know the Hour or Day, when my Spirit's will fly away One thing is certain, the die is cast and This Day could be my last Another Day beginning and I am grateful too For every waking hour that I share my breath with You Life's Uncertainty is a Guarantee, One Day You're gonna call on Me So I will Live for the Moment, Forget my Past, cos This Day could be my last! This Day could be my Last, This could be my last, Checkin' Out now! Often Days are wasted, when we're trying to Forget, or worryin' about the Future,and things that have'nt happened yet! Life's a Precious thing and the Joy it brings, grasp it while You can. Get Out There have Yourself a Blast You know This Day could be Your last This Day could be Your last, This Could Be.... Another Day is over, and will Tomorrow ever come? Will I live to Greet the Dawning or See Another, Rising Sun? That's the Mystery, that's how Life goes. Perhaps it's better that we should'nt know Life moves so quickly, Days go so fast, and This Day could be my last This Day could be my Last, This Could be my Last This Day could be My last This Day could be Your last This Day could be Our Last So I'm gonna Live my Life, like This Day was My Last...

OUT OF THE DARKNESS I'm on my knees now, Tears on My Face. I'm begging You Please now, I'm not in a good place. I'm trying to Pray now, come near me and Stay Cos I need to hear your voice, I've lost my way So Let me be right, give me the Sight to see the light I feel so uptight, and I need You to hold me tight Just through this Night Just for this Night... So tell Me You hear Me, say I'm not alone Comfort me through this Darkness, and carry me Home A Fear of the Past, I feel so Outcast And My Will to Live is fading, but You're here at Last So let me be right, give Me the Sight to see the Light I feel so uptight and I'm about to Lose the Fight Just for this Night, Just for this Night... So Here I Am Now, In a better place I can never be Thankful enough For Your Love and Your Grace Today Life's for Living, I'm back in the Race Out of The Darkness, with a Smile on My Face....

JUSTINE 04:14
Composed & Written by Dennis McCalmont JUSTINE Bittersweet Memories, Everyday Why must You haunt Me? Your Voice whispers on the breeze, or am I fooled by this Disease? Why must I wander from place to place? If only I could see Your face... My Sweet Justine Hold Me in Your arms again, and help Me to remember My Sweet Justine, We were Children then, It was late September You are Real to Me, although They cannot See Stay with Me, say You'll never Leave I am Lost, I am Lonely, Stare at Pictures on the Wall Strangers here say They know me, but Their Names I can't recall Why must I wander from place to place? If only I could see Your face... My Sweet Justine Hold Me in Your arms again, help Me to remember Sweet Justine, We were Lovers then, say that You remember You are Real to Me, although They cannot See Stay with Me, say You'll never Leave.. Say You'll never Leave Say You'll never Leave Justine.....Justine....Justine

'Something Beautiful' Composed/Written By Dennis McCalmont Sinners Preach with feet of clay From Golden Pulpits, You lead The Way. We were Young Innocents, full of Fear, It made No sense And how were we supposed to know? We only did what we were told, but Now We Know.. And In my Head Your God is Dead, now i've found Something Beautiful Your Vanity, Blinding Me, Now I see Something Beautiful Something All Embracing, for Uncertain times we're facing Keeps my mind from racing Why can't Your Secrets All be Told? Why Can't Your Riches All be Sold? Sinners Preach with Feet of Clay Are You Leading Us astray? The Messenger was Pure and True.. Love Each Other as I've Loved You.. But You Clouded That from View And In My Head Your God is Dead Now I've found Something Beautiful Your Vanity, Blinding Me Now I see Something Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful I've found Something You can't take from Me...

'The Difference' Written & Composed by Dennis McCalmont Mastered by Ciaran Byrne THE DIFFERENCE The Trouble is We speak in different Tongues All the Patriotic 'Battle-Songs' We've Sung We both sang our Songs Of Freedom, but none of Us were Free The Past was never Laid to Rest, No Chance for Liberty. As I stare at You through Bitter Eyes and You stare back the same at Me We're not to Blame for the Bigotry, Inherited You See On Our Father's knees, We'd Fight and Die and Kill Our Enemy We're really not so Different You and Me... I Know most of You just want to Live as OneWill We ever find an Answer? Will We ever Live as One? Will We ever Learn the Difference between The Bible and The Gun? And What Will We tell Our Children? Can We Tell Them What We've Done? How Strangers in The Darkness took Fathers from their Sons Sure We both Pray to the same Spirit, The Father and The Son But Fear He has Us in His Grasp, We're Afraid to Turn Our Back Afraid We'll be the Victim of a Sectarian Attack And Who will comfort the Innocents? The Ones Who suffer Most. Tell those Who Pull the Trigger, that Guilt will be Their Ghost. Will We ever find an Answer? Will We ever Live as One? Will We ever Learn the Difference between The Bible and The Gun? And What Will We tell Our Children? Can We Tell Them What We've Done? How Strangers in Broad Daylight took Mothers from their Sons. Last Night I had a Strange and Lovely Dream I Pray to God it was a Prophecy I dreamt You sang Your Songs of Freedom and I sang Harmony And right there in that Moment, The Both of Us were Free In an Instant The Past was Laid To Rest as We Sang in Unity We're really Not so Different You and Me... Ah Yes We can find an Answer Yes We can Live as One and We can Learn the Difference between The Bible and The Gun and We can tell Our Children, They can Learn from Wrongs We've done. The Love of a Human Spirit, will Unite us All as One And If You Look around You, Its plain for All to See We're really Not so Different You and Me We're really Not so Different You and Me....

about

Dennis McCalmont embraces the tired heart with Forevermore
I hope it lasts forevermore…
So the line from the title track croons to your tired heart like the best medicine ever. The latest offering from Irish singer/songwriter is a surprise because I was thinking he would go the same route as his soul-inspired debut SoulRecall album. After all, he does have a soul and he grooves like a master.

Forevermore centers around the theme of relationships..the beginning and the the end of them. The style is more laid back with the simplicity of folk/rock. I think this is the album that is close to his Irish roots. And man, this guy has an amazing voice!

There are 12 original tracks that play around 45 minutes. I am listening to this while sipping my first hot coffee of the day and I tell you, the mood is just right. Most of my favorites are slow tunes. Sleep Forever is cinematic and it demands for a scene in a movie. I think it’s the singing and the emphasis on the piano. This Could Be is another favorite which has a ‘hit’ potential. But I think with more live shows and promotion, this could be possible.

All of the songs in Forevermore are easy to remember and to singalong to. I find myself able to hum them after hearing. I think a lot of singer/songwriters can learn from Dennis McCalmont. He is an example that to be excellent you don’t just write and perform…you gotta have a really good voice with a good range to communicate the emotions behind the songs.

Like I said, I have many favorites in this album. But some of them really needs a mention. For example Out of Darkness has an uplifting hymn-like quality that proves to be a classic. There are more and it is up to you to find out. So go ahead and get this album when it comes out. It is a beautiful and artfully crafted second release from this magical Irish musical artist.
