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.

Track Name: FOREVERMORE
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
Track Name: LOVERS
'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...
Track Name: YOU'LL KEEP ON LIVING
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....
Track Name: SLEEP FOREVER
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...
Track Name: THIS COULD BE
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...
Track Name: OUT OF THE DARKNESS
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....
Track Name: JUSTINE
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
Track Name: SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL
'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...

Silent Friend Composed/Written by Dennis McCalmont

Silent Friend

Oh Silent Friend You are dear to Me
And I'm so grateful that You found Me
Oh Silent Friend You are near to Me
Everyday your love surrounds Me

Oooooh Like a River flows from the Stream down to the Ocean
Oooooh Flowers grow a sign of Mother Earth's Devotion
And together We will go watch the Mystery unfold
As We travel to the Ocean of the Soul

While I'm awake You are here with Me
My Soul in safety keeping
When darkness comes Watching over Me
In the silence of my sleeping

Oooooh Like a River flows from the Stream down to the Ocean
Oooooh Flowers grow a sign of Mother Earth's Devotion
And together We will go watch the Mystery unfold
As We travel to the Ocean of the Soul

And together We will go watch the Mystery unfold
As We travel to the Ocean of the Soul
Track Name: THE DIFFERENCE (The Bible & The Gun)
'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....

SANDBAR BLUES

WHEN THE DAY IS WEARY
AND I'VE GOT THE TIME
ONLY ONE PLACE ON EARTH
I CAN EASE MY MIND
COME TAKE MY HAND JOIN ME ON THE SAND
ON THE BEACH
WATCH THOSE SAIL-BOATS RIDE UPON THE TIDE
HEAR THE BIRDS CALLING HIGH IN THE SKY
NOT MUCH TO DO JUST ME AND YOU
ON THE BEACH

SO LET THE SEA ROLL IN
LET THE MOUNTAINS CLIMB
ALL I WANNA DO IS JUST LOSE SOME TIME
WALKING AND TALKING TO MYSELF

WALK FOR MILES AND MILES
AND SWEETLY SMILE
AT ALL THOSE PRETTY WOMEN
AND THEIR BIKINI STYLE
LIFE HOLDS NO FEAR
I WISH YOU WERE HERE
ON THE BEACH

SO LET THE SEA ROLL IN
LET THE MOUNTAINS CLIMB
ALL I WANNA DO IS JUST LOSE SOME TIME
WALKING AND TALKING TO MYSELF

SO WHEN THE DAY IS WEARY
AND I'VE GOT THE TIME
ONLY ONE PLACE ON EARTH
I CAN EASE MY MIND
COME TAKE MY HAND JOIN ME ON THE SAND
ON THE BEACH
Track Name: TILL WE MEET AGAIN
Composed/Written By Dennis McCalmont
Mastered by Ciaran Byrne

Till We Meet Again

Come let Me Hold You
Just before the Dawn
Tenderly Enfold You
Soon I will be gone.
Don't You ever worry, I'll be by Your side
No matter what comes, I'll wait for You. on the Other side
As You gaze upon Me
Fear not what You see
This Pale and Lifeless Body
Thats not really Me
Dont You ever worry, I'll be by Your side
No matter what comes I'll wait for You, on the Other Side
Friends and Family gather round
To Lay Me to My Rest
There'll be Tears and Laughter here
But You know I've done My Best
Don't You ever worry, I'll be by Your side
No matter what comes, I'll wait for You, on the Other Side
Go and Tell our Children, Hold Them Close to You
Give Them My Love, and Comfort Them
Like You Always Do
Don't You ever worry, This is Not The End
No Matter what comes, I'll wait for You
Till We Meet Again.
