Mary Dillon and Déanta: Lullaby for Sad Hearts


She and her sister Cara are blessed with sweet and otherworldly voices. If rainbows make a sound, then they would sound like Mary. I am inviting you to sing along with Mary and the wonderful Northern Irish band Déanta. I guess it is the mood of the night that made me seek out sad but beautiful songs. The name of the band is  Irish for done or made. Check out their Green Linnet discog.

Members are

Mary Dillon
Deirdre Havlin
Rosie Mulholland
Eoghan O’Brien
Kate O’Brien
Clodagh Warnock

Where Are You
Where are you tonight, I wonder?
And where will you be tonight when I cry?
Will sleep to you come easy, though alone I can’t slumber?
Or will you welcome in the morning at another one’s side?

How easy for you the years slip under
And left me a shadow the sun can’t dispel
I have built for you a tower of love and admiration
I see you so high I cannot reach myself


I look through my window at a world filled with strangers
The face in my mirror is the one face I know
You have taken all that’s in me, though my heart is in no danger
My heart is in no danger, but I’d still like to know


If there’s a silence, then it can be broken
If there beats a pure heart, it’s there I will go
And time will work its healing, and the spirit will grow stronger
But oh, in the meantime, I’d still like to know


Where are you?
Oh where are you?
Where are you?
