Lilac 03:40
Come to me my darling Wrap your arms around my neck Kiss my eyelids and my nose Say you'll always hold me close You don't know this yet But someday you'll see These will be The good old days All your questions will hang Like your grandmother's wash Rippling in the wind Dripping in the sun And you'll let them go And you'll let them go Sometimes no answer Is all there is But you can't deny Birds in the sky Are beautiful When they fly I'm so lucky I'm the one Who gets to hold your tiny hand The past is over and it's gone The future hasn't yet begun The present's just fine As long as you're mine Chorus Repeat Chorus Come to me my darling Wrap your arms around my neck Kiss my eyelids and my nose Say you'll always hold me close

Alnilam 04:36
I have dreams every now and then That feel like memories I find myself walking in a world Much like this one When I wake I recall Running through the dunes As if I knew the way In the pale saffron light of an alien sun Fine sand looks like gold dust Oh and I remember you You were there too Large like moons Orion's string of pearls Hang in the sky Then you turned to me and said Alnilam's the brightest one When I wake I recall Standing by the sea Tall grass swaying in the wind Tide pools sparkling, teeming with life Singing a symphony of blue When I wake I recall Running through the dunes As if I knew the way In the pale saffron light of an alien sun Fine sand looks like gold dust Shine on Alnilam

Rise 03:20
Big changes around the corner Trying them on for size New skin still a bit too tight But the place and time feel right I'm feeling a little light-headed tonight Happy to find I'm not dancing alone Feel our spirits Rising higher Flying colors Test of fire I'm feeling a little light-headed tonight Look around we're not dancing alone Feel our spirits Rising higher Throw the ballast In the fire Your eyes your grin I drink you in (Where have you been?) Is this happening? Your hair your skin I breathe you in (Where have you been? Where have you been?) Big changes around the corner Look around we're not dancing alone

New Year 04:17
The last time I saw you You sat across the table We had a drink or two Before the year was through You stared at me all night Don't know why you were unable Right in front of you To see me across the table It's been a long time since I thought I knew you well You looked like a prince It's been a long time since Outside the heavy snow Was falling like rain We said goodnight and I Stepped out into that white world I knew my heart was breaking It's been a long time since I thought I knew you well It's been a long time since I thought I knew you well The last time I saw you We talked about the weather Movies we had seen And things we'll never do It's been a long time since I thought I knew you well You looked like a prince It's been a long time since Inside the lights were dim The windows were steamed Polite conversation Lost in celebration It's been a long time since I thought I knew you well It's been a long time since I thought I knew you well

I've been trying to get used to Your voice only in my mind Your sweet face only in pictures I still forget sometimes There's so much I'd like to tell you Things that would have made you laugh There's so much I'd like to tell you But you're just a photograph I've been walking and I've been running I've been dreaming that I'm flying This is all that I have found Take a picture, take a picture Life all around There's a garden on the rooftop I can see the sea from here Rows of weeds wave little flowers My shadow changes every hour There's so much I'd like to tell you Things that would have made you laugh There's so much I'd like to tell you But you're just a photograph I've been walking and I've been running I've been dreaming that I'm flying This is all that I have found Take a picture, take a picture Life all around Ocean winds push clouds around A flock of starlings circles down As if they were just one

Ye sacred Muses! With whose beauty fired My soul is ravished and my brain inspired Whose priest I am, whose holy robes I wear, Would you your poet’s first petition hear? Give me the ways Of wandering stars to know Why flowing tides prevail upon the main? And in what dark recess they shrink again? What shakes the solid earth? What force delays, The summer nights and shortens winter days? But, if my heavy blood restrain the flight Of my free soul aspiring to the height Of nature and unclouded fields of light My next desire is Void of care and strife To lead a soft, secure, inglorious life A country cottage near a crystal flood A winding valley, and a lofty wood Some god conduct me to the sacred shades Where bacchanals are sung by Spartan maids Happy the ones who, studying nature’s laws Through known effects can trace the sacred cause Their mind possessing in a quiet state Fearless of fortune and resigned to fate

High on the branches Of familiar trees I lived in mansions Of green, unseen What touches me? What can I do? What will I give? What will I leave? Years went by In the blink of an eye I saw the giants Come down, undone What touches me? What can I do? What will I give? What will I leave? Images and headlines Too sad to bear People in the streets Images and headlines Too sad to bear What touches you? What can you do? What will you give? What will you leave?

Wish 04:28
When voices no longer stay quiet And eyes can no longer stay closed When love becomes the answer And hope embraces us all Wishes sail across the ocean Under this wide open sky Currents of freedom in motion Rushing in from every side Pick it up and think it over Lift it up and move it over Dare to build a new tomorrow Wishes sail across the ocean Under this indigo sky Rivers of people in motion Rising to stand by your side

You trace the raindrops On your window Watch them falling from the sky Beyond the glass Your visions soaring Over trees and through the channels And another day is ending With your dreams upon your sleeve Open doors and Chairs and tables On the floor a nest of cables While another day is ending With your dreams upon your sleeve Outside another day is ending With your dreams upon your shoulders Outside another day is ending With your dreams upon your sleeve

These early rains Turn everything green These days I drift in wonder Nothing's what it seems When it comes to you I am not myself When I look at you I hide behind my eyes When I talk to you I hope you can't hear When I'm close to you Thunder in my ears These early rains Leave me feeling blue These days I dream in color All because of you When it comes to you I am not myself When I look at you I hide behind my eyes When I talk to you I hope you can't hear When I'm close to you Thunder in my ears When it comes to you I am not myself When I look within You're under my skin
