Track Name: You Didn't
when i first saw your face
i was almost without words
then my pulse began to race
as i realized i was in love

you could have held me in your arms
i could have helped you to be strong
you could have given me all your love
but you didn't
you could have kissed me oh so soft
told me things i needed to hear
we could have been something good
but you didn't

you told me i was your girl
that you loved to see my face
but when i tried to get close
you always always pushed away

and where were you when stuff got hard?
you ran out the door across town to hers
ill never get why you kept me around
when all you wanted was someone else
Track Name: Mná na hÉireann
Tá bean in Éirinn a phronnfadh séad domh is mo sháith le n-ól
Is tá bean in Éirinn is ba bhinne léithe mo ráfla ceoil
Ná seinm théad; atá bean in éirinn is níorbh fhearr léi beo
Mise ag léimnigh nó leagtha i gcré is mo thárr faoi fhód

Tá bean in Éirinn a bheadh ag éad liom mur' bhfaighfinn ach póg
Ó bhean ar aonach, nach ait an scéala, is mo dháimh féin leo;
Tá bean ab fhearr liom nó cath is céad dhíobh nach bhfagham go deo
Is tá cailín spéiriúil ag fear gan Bhéarla, dubhghránna cróin.

Tá bean a déarfadh dá siulfainn léi go bhfaighinn an t-ór,
Is tá bean 'na léine is fearr a méin ná táinte bó
Le bean a bhuairfeadh Baile an Mhaoir is clár Thír Eoghain,
Is ní fheicim leigheas ar mo ghalar féin ach scaird a dh'ól
