Track Name: Drifting Daydream
Drifting Daydream

Old friend, can I take your hand?
Seems you’re sinking in quick sand

The days grow thin
The nights fold in

Great grey owl, phantom of the north
Ride your wings to the underworld

The light grows dim
The shadows spin

Drifting daydream paints the air white
Clean slate white like a lotus floating in the
Pale moonlight
Drifting daydream paints the air white
Clean slate white like a lotus floating in the
Moonlight
Track Name: Cold
Cold

Cold like cold like I’ve never felt
Cold, cold to the bone
Cold like cold like I’ve never felt
Cold, cold and alone

It’s been said we’re hangin’ from thread
Hangin’ from thread in the wind
It’s been said we’re hangin’ from thread
Hangin’ from thread in the wind
Track Name: Invisible
Invisible

Invisible dreams color your heart
Invisible words pardon your thoughts
Untameable urgency
A long, long journey home

Invisible face shadow-filled eyes
Invisible name wears a disguise
Untameable river flowing downstream
Waits for you

Invisible dreams color your heart
Invisible words pardon your thoughts
Unwavering will unfolding arms to break your fall
Track Name: Your Eyes
Your Eyes

Cold, like a day in November
Cold, that’s all that I remember
Cold, like the wind in December
Cold, that’s all that I remember

Your eyes your eyes your eyes
Your eyes your eyes disguise

Stones formed the weight of your words, dear
Stones, you were aiming my way, dear
Stones built a wall between us, dear
Stones, made of paralyzing fear

Your eyes your eyes your eyes
Your eyes your eyes disguise

Once upon a time our passages aligned
A geometric curve adorned the sky
But then a symphony of angels
Orchestrated our goodbye
Our last goodbye
Track Name: Blind Spot
Blind Spot

Blinked twice missed the sign
Blind spot hid the crime
You got away
You ran away

This is just a test
Signalling distress
Don’t be alarmed
Don’t be alarmed
Don’t be alarmed

Falling asleep at the wheel
Headlights flash sealing the deal
You got away
You flew away
You couldn’t stay

Sunrise
Newborn eyes
Track Name: Venezia
Venezia (Laine Dahlen)

Soft moonlit night
Gentle breeze upon the sea
Violins, sweet sounds of mystery

Lovers trace strains of a rhapsody
Caressing flowers making memories

Waves of time
Wash upon
Your history
Measured years will someday set you free

Venezia
Dancing on the sea of life
Your heart is torn but your soul is wise
Venezia
Sea god’s daughter take my hand
Remove your veil
Guide me to enchanted lands

Two bodies touch
Eyes closed until the dawn
Awaken now to a lonely song
Lover’s place sudden rain upon her gown
Masks the hurt flowing down

Lady of light
Tears glitter bright
Do your bells toll for me?

Venezia
Dancing on the sea of life
Your heart is torn but your soul is wise
Venezia
Sea god’s daughter take my hand
Remove your veil
Guide me to enchanted lands
Remove your veil
Help me see and understand

Si Je Pouvais

Si je pouvais j’y retournerais
J’y retournerais
J’y retournerais
Si je pouvais j’y retournerais
À cette journée
Je lui dirais

Comment
Comment je l’aime

Si je pouvais je la prendrais
Je la prendrais
Je la prendrais
Comme un enfant je la bercerais
Dans mes bras et je lui dirais

Comment je l’aime
Comment je l’aime
Comment je l’aime

Sous le soleil je te chanterais
Je te chanterais
Je te chanterais
Sous le soleil je te chanterais
Une chanson qui te dirait

Track Name: Ice Age Paradise
Ice Age Paradise

Across the street top the signpost in neon in reads
“I Will, in loving memory”
Kid lost his way puttin’ tricks on display
Now he’s dead
This fog carried him away
So far away

Across the map through my heart to the left of my brain
I sit fondling the shame
Girl you have managed to shatter you world with a lie
And sweet toxic lullabies
Sweet toxic lullabies

Carving a path through the snow
Weary thoughts to the wind
Twilight is lingering flickering under the wing
Ravenous raven cawin’ and cravin’ sin
Preachin’ his black magic ways wearin’ a grin
In this ice age paradise
In my ice age paradise

Across the echo of emptiness present hears past
Chanting mantras at half mast
Where there’s a will there’s a why there is breath to survive
Your truth holds eternal light
So bright inside
Track Name: Boat Afloat An Ocean
Boat Afloat An Ocean

Your guard is measured by the weight of your armour
Your eyes are lightening in a storm
Our destiny is flailing like a flag that lost its honour
Boat afloat an ocean sails a’ torn
Boat afloat an ocean sails a’ torn

Your pride is measured by the strings around your heart
Your mouth is dry and parched for love
Our road is fraught with holes and forks and dead-ends in the dark
Boat afloat an ocean, sinking sunk
Boat afloat an ocean, sinking sunk

I wanna know who was steering
I wanna know whose hands embraced the wheel
I wanna know which one of us was veering
You took my left I took your right
Now we’re sinking out of sight
You took my left I took your right
Now we’re sinking out of sight

Boat afloat an ocean
Boat afloat an ocean
Boat afloat an ocean sinking sunk

My time is measured by the strength of my longing
My heart is beating on a drum
Our destiny is praying for the sun to guide the moment

Boat afloat an ocean, singing sung
Boat afloat an ocean
Boat afloat an ocean
Boat afloat an ocean singing sung
Boat afloat an ocean
Boat afloat an ocean drifting home
Track Name: Reappearing Dream
Reappearing Dream

Lightening
Strikes the ink black night sky
Thunder
Jolts me out of my deep
Reappearing dream

Day wakes
Sun breaks
Through a cloud-filled
Summer sky floating above a
Paris carrousel
