about

The Fireside Family Wales, UK

Surprisingly, they really are a family! With influences of Ed Sheeran, Of Monsters and Men and Annie Lennox to name but a few, they have been delighting audiences since 2014 with their Alternative Indie-Folk vibes. The folk roots run deep, which is apparent in their style of writing and musical content. With four previous generations of professional musicians they couldn't really do anything else! ... more

Track Name: Swenio
Great Mystery, sweet mystery
You've been a friend of mine.
Guided my steps
From my first breath,
Now you're teaching me to fly,

Oh Swenio
Oh Swenio

All over the world,
I've been searching for answers
To solve the mystey,
But we are a part of eternal creation,
The answers you and me,

Oh Swenio
Oh Swenio

There are many names
By which they call us
It's hard to know who's to blame
If only they'd look
Past what they're perceiving,
They'd know we're one and the same,

Oh Swenio
Oh Swenio

Don't fit in, don't feel right
Not included
We don't subscribe to their norm,
When we open our eyes and awake
We will take this Fifth World by storm!

Oh Swenio
Oh Swenio
Oh Swenio

I have trust in your plan
For you are who I am,
We will shine like the stars
For the future is ours,
Feel the joy in our hearts
As we make a new start,
We'll break free from these chains
To be children again,
Sing your prayers to the sky
Kiss the Fourth World goodbye,
The destruction will cease
In this Fifth World of peace,
Swenio

Oh Swenio
Track Name: Why I'm Wrong
Don't think, don't try,
Don't sink, don't lie,
Don't speak until I say you can.
Can't breathe, can't walk
Can't leave, can't talk
Can't see this so called master plan.

I'm turning to you will you take my hand
And if I lean on you will you help me stand,
But you say

You can't rely on me, my foundation's built on sand
Can't decide for me, for I am not at your command
And when you take my wings and fly away,
You leave me here alone,
Leave me here alone,
That's why I'm wrong.

Stand still, stand tall
Stand by, don't fall
Stand up for all the world to see.
Your face, your mask
Will break, won't last
You're fake and all the world can see.

I'm turning to you will you take my hand
And if I lean on you will you help me stand,
And if I break in two will you make me whole,
I'm asking, will you heal my soul
But you say

You can't rely on me, my foundation's built on sand
Can't decide for me, for I am not at your command
And when you take my wings and fly away,
You leave me here alone,
Leave me here alone,
That's why I'm wrong,
So wrong


You can't rely on me, my foundation's built on sand
Can't decide for me, for I am not at your command,
You can't rely on me, my foundation's built on sand
Can't decide for me, for I am not at your command,
And when you take my wings and fly away,
You leave me here alone,
Leave me here alone,
That's why I'm wrong,
So wrong.
Track Name: Anyway
As hard as this is to say,
Think that we should say goodvye,
I feel you hanging on,
But I refuse to live a lie,
'Coz now I finally see

That you didn't want me anyway,
No you didn't want me anyway

This pain it's hard to bear,
And I'm drowning in my tears,
Feel like I can't go on,
But I've been this way for years,
It's catching up on me

That you didn't want me anyway,
No you didn't want me anyway

I've been the albatross around your neck,
I've been pulling at your seams,
Just took me time to see it babe,
I'd locked away my dreams

So now you're moving on,
Hope you find somebody new,
I wish you every happiness,
I just wasn't right for you,
I have to set you free

'Coz I didn't want you anyway,
No I didn't want you anyway,
I didn't want you anyway no no no,
I didn't want you anyway,
I didn't want you
Track Name: Confusion
Mindless dreams are manufactured,
Deep inside my heart is fractured,
Nobody asks for reasons why -
Introspection's a reflection,
Trying to find my soul connection,
Seems like the World is passing me by

Deep in my mind I am screaming out loud,
My mouth open wide I don't utter a sound,
The monsters are under my bed -
There's demons inside of my head,
Is it all in my head?

Be alone,
See your soul,
Heed your own advice,
But don't trust their eyes,
They'll hypnotize
And feed you with their lies,
So don't think twice

This affliction's been my addiction,
I'm breaking free with no restriction,
Facing the shadows deep inside -
No confusion, no illusion,
Link by link this chain will loosen,
And I'll have nowhere left to hide

Feeling the darkness that's hanging around,
My heart's open wide to this truth that I've found,
The monster's were all in my head -
Those demons are already dead!

Be alone,
See your soul,
Heed your own advice,
But don't trust their eyes,
They'll hypnotize
And feed you with their lies,
So don't think

Be alone,
See your soul,
Heed your own advice,
Release the bind,
That keeps you blind,
Be free from your disguise

Be alone,
See your soul,
Heed your own advice,
But don't trust their eyes,
They'll hypnotize
And feed you with their lies,
So don't think twice,
No don't think twice,
Don't think twice
Track Name: Elen of the Ways
I hear your call
The call of the wild,
I'll follow you
Like an eager child,
Your steps they leave no trace,
Your smile lights up my face,
And I fall into your warm embrace.

In days gone by
Your story was known,
We'd search for you
In tree, lake and stone,
But time has passed away,
And we ave lost our way,
Ah but I will find you come what may

Come with me, can you see
I am Elen of the Ways
Dance with me, then you'll see
I am Elen of the Ways
Come with me, can you see
I am Elen of the Ways
Dance with me, then you'll see
I am Elen of the Ways
(repeated)

I see your soul
The soul of the wild,
I feel your pain
Your voice unheard,
Our wounds, they cut you deep,
Our hate it makes you weep,
Have we fallen to a bitter,
A bitter sleep
A bitter sleep
A bitter sleep

Elen of the Ways
[Come with me, can you see
I am Elen of the Ways]

Elen of the Ways
[Dance with me, then you'll see
I am Elen of the Ways]

Elen of the Ways
[Come with me, can you see
I am Elen of the Ways]

Elen of the Ways
[Dance with me, then you'll see
I am Elen of the Ways]

Come with me, can you see
I am Elen of the Ways
Dance with me, then you'll see
I am Elen of the Ways
Come with me, can you see
I am Elen of the Ways
Dance with me, then you'll see
I am Elen of the Ways
(repeated unitil end)
Track Name: Fools Errand
Are you in it for the money?
Are you in it for the fame?
Are you in it for the glory of being a household name?
I'm in it for the music that's running through my veins,
And I've got something to say,

Are in it 'coz you love it?
You in it for the fun?
Do you wanna be adored by all those you gaze upon?
If music don't consume you, then nothing can be done,
Have you got something to say?

We live in a fantasy,
Dreaming big, it's for you and me
Is that where you want ot be?
You tell me

Did you make the right decision?
Did you see it to the end?
Or were your personal ambitions too deep to comprehend?
Time to face the music,
Where are you my friend?
Have you got nothing to say?

We live in a fantasy,
(Fantasy)
Dreaming big, it's for you and me
(You and me)
Is that where you want ot be?
You tell me,
Tell me.

(Instrumental)


We live in a fantasy,
(Fantasy)
Dreaming big, it's for you and me
(You and me)
Is that where you want ot be?
You tell me,
You tell me,
We live in a fantasy,
(Fantasy)
Dreaming big, it's for you and me
(You and me)
Is that where you want ot be?
You tell me,
Tell me.
Track Name: Come to Me
Come to me,
Warm to me,
Closer than you've ever dared to be,
Feel my heart,
Feel my soul,
Closer than I've ever let you go,

I'll take you on a trip,
I'll take you on a trip around my heart,
Around my heart...

See the scars,
See the pain,
See to it - it won't happen again,
Trust in me,
Love in me,
Close your eyes and I will set you free,

I'll take you on a trip,
I'll take you on a trip,
Yes I'll take you on a trip,
I'll take you on a trip around my heart,
Around my heart...

Ti camelo gitano á bailas
Ti camelo gitano á bailas
Ti camelo gitano á bailas

See the scars,
See the pain,
See to it - it won't happen again,
Trust in me,
Love in me,
Close your eyes and I will set you free,

I'll take you on a trip,
I'll take you on a trip,
Yes I'll take you on a trip,
I'll take you on a trip around my heart,
Around my heart...

Oh I will free you,
Let me try...

Ti camelo gitano á bailas

Ti camelo gitano á bailas
Ti camelo gitano á bailas

Track Name: Left Behind
Always

I love the way you look, when you're sleeping
I love the way you smile, when you're dreaming
I love the way we talk all night
Until the early hours of the day,
I love the way you said it'd always
Be this way,
(Always)
Just you and me,
(Always)

And as you kissed my mouth, my heart crumbled
And as they shipped you out, my tears tumbled
And as we talked all night until the early hours of the day,
You told that I knew it'd always
Be this way
(Always)
But I don't want to see
(Always)

Please don't talk to me of life, while you're leaving
Please don't talk to me of love, my hearts bleeding
Please just talk to me all night until the early hours of the day,
Please just tell me it can always
Be this way
(Always)
Just you and me

I don't know how to say it,
I cannot find the words,
This pain it makes me crazy,
I know it sounds absurd,
I cannot bear to lose you,
Don't want to say goodbye,
Tears just keep on falling,
No matter how I try
I don't wanna say goodbye
So please
Dont make me say goodbye,
No you know, you know, you know
I cannot bear to say goodbye,
Why should I say goodbye?

I loved the way you looked, when you were sleeping
I loved the way you'd smile, when you were dreaming
I loved the way we talked all night
Until the early hours of the day,
I loved the way you said it'd always
Be this way,
(Always)
Just you and me,
(Always)
Now I see,
(Always)
It was always you and me
(Always)

Always
Always
Always
Always
Track Name: Who Are You
Fear burning in his eyes,
Heat upon his skin,
Honest men may tell no lies
But secrets hide within,
Pictures tell a thousand words
That no-one ever can,
Memories may fade
But they still haunt the guilty man

Who are you?
Who are you?

You hide, you run
From what you've done,
Your soul's in broken pieces
Lying on the floor,
You shy away,
You cry each day,
The word forgiveness
Doesn't reach you anymore

All those years for one mistake,
He takes a front row seat,
Watches it unfold again,
Moments on repeat,
Man may wish to roll back time
And right the wrongs he's done,
But the path towards redemption
Is a solitary one,

Who are you?
Who are you?
Who are you?
Are you? Are you? Are you?

You hide, you run
From what you've done,
Your soul's in broken pieces
Lying on the floor,
You shy away,
You cry each day,
The word forgiveness
Doesn't reach you anymore

(Instrumental)

You hide, you run
From what you've done,
Your soul's in broken pieces
Lying on the floor,
You shy away,
You cry each day,
The word forgiveness
Doesn't reach you anymore
Can't turn to face
Your hearts disgrace,
All consuming hate
Is what you're living for
The choice you made,
The debt you paid
The word forgiveness
Doesn't reach you anymore
It doesn't reach you anymore
It doesn't reach you anymore
Track Name: Words, Water
Words, water, rainbow
Words, water, rainbow

Faces in the clouds,
Chilled my bones,
Calls from the crow,
Take me home,
The winds whispering song
Spoke to my soul,
And the words, words fell like water
From the rainbow

Words, water, rainbow
Words, water, rainbow

Tales from the stones,
Told me what I'd find,
That love never dies,
And that eased my mind,
And the winds whispering song
Was soothing my soul,
While the words, the words fell like water
From the rainbow

Words, water, rainbow
Words, water, rainbow
Words, water, rainbow
Words, water, rainbow

AHHHHHHHH

Faces in the clouds,
Chilled my bones,
(Chilled my bones)
Calls from the crow,
(Calls from the crow)
Take me home,
The winds whispering song
(Winds whispering song)
Spoke to my soul,
And the words, the words fell like water
From the rainbow
Oh yes the words, the words fell like water
From the rainbow,

Words, water, rainbow
Words, water, rainbow
Words, water, rainbow
Words, water, rainbow
