Secret Garden’s musical ideas are built on organic melodies telling their own stories, simplicity and straight from the heart performances. With this album “once in a red moon” we wanted to retain these basic elements, but also explore new areas in our musical universe, and challenge our own creative thoughts. During this process we also discovered that this development was a circle – like an orbit in our creative universe taking us around to the intimacy and emotions of where Secret Garden once originated. It was from this album that “You Raise Me Up” was born into the world.

  • YOU RAISE ME UP

    Lyrics by Brendan Graham

    When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
    When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
    Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
    Until you come and sit awhile with me.

    You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
    You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
    I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
    You raise me up… to more than I can be.

    You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
    You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
    I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
    You raise me up… to more than I can be.

    There is no life – no life without its hunger;
    Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
    But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
    Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

    You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
    You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
    And I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
    You raise me up… to more than I can be.
    You raise me up… to more than I can be.

  • THE GATES OF DAWN
    Lyrics by Brendan Graham

    The wheels of life keep turning,
    Spinning without control.
    The wheels of the heart keep yearning
    For the sound of the singing soul;

    And nights are full with weeping
    For sins of the past we’ve sown
    But tomorrow is ours for the keeping
    Tomorrow the future’s shown.

    CHORUS:
    Lift your eyes and see the glory,
    Where the circle of life is drawn;
    See the never-ending story,
    Come with me to the gates of dawn.


    And whose is the hand who rises
    The sun from the heaving sea?
    The power that ever amazes
    We look, but never will see.

    Who scattered the seeds so life could be,
    Who coloured the fields of corn?
    Who formed the mould that made me – me
    Before the world was born?

    CHORUS:
    Lift your eyes and see the glory,
    Where the circle of life is drawn;
    See the never-ending story,
    Come with me to the gates of dawn.

    Lift your eyes and see the glory,
    Where the circle of life is drawn;
    See the never-ending story,
    Come with me to the gates of dawn.

  • Greenwaves

    Lyrics by Ann Hampton Callaway

    I remember a meadow one morning in May,
    With a sky full of dreams that sailed in that day.
    I was dancing through green waves of grass like the sea
    For a moment in time I could feel I was free.

    There are waves of forgiveness and waves of regret,
    And the first waves of true love I’ll never forget.
    In the meadow that morning as I wandered alone
    There were green waves of yearning for life still unknown.

    chorus:
    Take me home to the meadow that cradles my heart
    Where the waves reach as far as you can see.
    Take me home to the meadow – we’ve been too long apart,
    I can still hear you calling for me.

    What I’d give to remember that heavenly state
    Just a moment in time – all mine to create.
    As I’m taking my last breath I know what I’ll see
    There’ll be green waves forever out there waiting for me.

    chorus:
    Take me home to the meadow that cradles my heart
    Where the waves reach as far as you can see.
    Take me home to the meadow – we’ve been too long apart,
    I can still hear you calling for me.
