Everytime A Train Goes By, delves deeply
into Celtic music.  Intro music carries such
a deep reflection on the inside.  As the
song goes, “When I suddenly heard that sound….Filled the valley and shook the
ground…”My body was frozen…Cups and saucers started to shake…Fear on the
horizon…Run and hide before it’s too late…One morning I stood still…Engine
rumbling over the hill…Held my breath and I close my eyes…Feared the worst, but
to my surprise…A loud whistle was blowin…Opened my eyes and what did I see…Right
there in my backyard…That conductor smiling at me…Every time a train goes by, a
train goes by, my confidence grows…I can face any old whistle that blows…Every time
a train goes by…”I just love the message behind this song. For me, it goes
along in quiet trust, increasing the faith and doing those necessary things in
life, persevering and growing in times of shaking.  Greater benefits can be found behind the
disappointments, failures in life, it can be hidden behind unanswered prayers.   The way will be made clear as we look
heavenwards and hear the Conductor’s voice in prayer.  It’s like digging dip in the tremors of life
and nourishing our soul to victory. 
“Somebody’s Daughter” covers the storybook
of life.  It’s about the role we have in
life.  It’s about giving up the fairy
tale life and deal with the reality of what’s going on around the world.  Message is just filled with the purpose we
have in life and encouraging us to dream and let our Father carry us in all
situations in life. 
“Leave The Past Behind” is finding a new
beginning with the one you love and not looking back.  It is settling down in spirit and giving
every part of oneself, surrendering heart and mind.  It’s finding a home and belonging while taking
time to dance to the rhythm of the song of care, love, peace and
forgiveness.  As the song goes, “It burns
way too fast, we can have all we can handle…So tonight, let’s just dance….and
who knows what we might find if we surrender heart and mind…Stay here with
me…Make this moment last…Let’s just leave the past in the past.”
“Right Turn” is finding the right person.
It’s finding the other piece of your heart. 
  It’s the heart thrill and the
gentle glow of love.  It’s discovering a
matchless treasure after treading in the highway of the lost.  The beat mixed with lyrics brings joy and a
glimpse of a broken heart becoming one.
The intro of “All In The Family” is the
echo of the song, “Because He Lives”. 
The strings just pierce it’s way to your heart and move you.  Tells about the precious moments with the
family, far more valuable that it could ever be, the perfect recipe of love,
going through the day of walking the aisle, talking, smiling, crying, laughing,
sharing blessings.   All these things
make life a thing of beauty. 
How can one live a dream?  “Immigrant Shoe’s can give you a bird’s eye
view.  It’s following the promptings of
the seed of promise for a reason, for a purpose that started as tiny mosaics
and finally seeing the full picture and stepping on the territory, saying
goodbye to the old world and saying hello to the new.  Tin whistle, the violin and the drum make you
dance to the new song in those immigrant shoes in the new home with the land
lighting the path.
