Track Name: Remember
Do you remember when
we’d look beyond each other’s eyes Each second, a clean slate where new adventures would arise Do you remember?

The film rolled by, We tried to freeze the time but failed to catch the tide Let us be immersed in the art of living It’s who we are

And then, one day, We grew up tall away from all that we were Leaving the child behind So we could reach the skies But we forgot to fly Do you remember?

You and me, sitting underneath the apple tree You and me, sharing endless days throughout the spring

Each day, just breathe Let the feeling fill yourself Wake up, heart of a child, Take your turn to grace

You and me, sitting underneath the apple tree You and me, sharing endless days throughout the spring

Do you remember?
Track Name: Masquerade
I’ve been looking for inventions
In this masquerade of life
I’ve been searching for directions
Only to find, that I’d lost sight of my path

I’ve been longing for a new dimension
To give color and shape and to bring a new light
But I learned that through my expectations
I couldn’t see what was in front of me

And now you’re here
The only one my heart longs to see
And now each river runs its course

I’ve been giving myself explanations
Blindfolded my eyes, believed my own lies
But when you reached my destination
I could not resist rising to the occasion

A device of my own creation
These monsters and shadows, they seemed so real
After all the fear and frustration, they robbed me so
But you came and made them go

And now you’re here
The only one my heart longs to see
And to be so found inside your grounds
That I can let go and get lost
Forever more
Track Name: Eyes to Sea
Oh, I hear a sacred voice
Calling me beyond this shore
All I hear and all I feel
The sweetest longing of love’s tears
That draw the current of my being
Dissolving me right into sea

Enter in this cave inside
Where words dance in story lines
The endless pages of this book
Tell the tales of love anew
Sprouting from a barren land
The timeless blossom of the heart
Has started

All the way across the seas
I will drown myself to be
Part of you, you part of me
Navigating silently
We’re cruising on, no journey’s end
Anchored in each other’s breath

Oh, this feeling is so clear
Screaming out for us to hear
Fire, fire, burn me deep
Till I know myself to be
Part of you, you part of me
Swinging on a solar string

Oh, this fire of creation
Molded us in sweet perfection
Harmony was born for us
To carve the sculpture of our heart
Along the way, along the fight
The weightless grace of love has come
All the way to us
Track Name: One, Two, Three
One, two, three
One, two, three
One, two, three…and one

One, is the name of true revelation
Two, is the fault and hence, no redemption
By three…it’s a waltz
Between two opposing forces

One, two, three..

One, weary instance, you got me lost
Two, are the days that love came aboard
And three are the chances I gave
You lost at three, and now you’re gone, gone, gone

CHORUS:
So then all went wrong
And the waltz we once sang
Became a funeral march

One, two, three..
One, is the day that you promised heaven
With your two, deceiving eyes
Lies, lies, many more than three times…
Now you’re gone, gone, gone, gone
Track Name: Little Voice
Once upon a time
There was a voice that was food to my soul
There were soft guitars
There were stars exploding like fireworks

But then there came oblivion
The dream swallowers came
Dressed in smoke

Once upon a time
There was a voice that was fuel to my faults
Oh, so loud and strange
I listened to the paradigm it created

On its back it wrapped me up
On a train of despair
I was kidnapped

Little voice, please come into my world
Little voice please shelter me from harm
little voice please, I still hear you
you’re the one that I love and adore

Once, I had to choose
I had to see in me a chance for life
Track Name: Ground Zero
I know you’re guarded
I know you’ve been hurt
And you, you must have known I’ve been jaded and lost
I’ve been through a lot of discoveries
That led me to nothing and so
I am just where we started

Ground zero, I miss you, don’t know how to reach you
We’re going in circles, just to be doing the waltz
Let’s us hold hands and rejoice in the fact
That we’re sitting here together
Like two silly drunks

This is the point in the story
Where you sweep me off my feet
You jump on a plane and confess
How hard living is without me
Distance unseen and an ocean between
But this is just how we started

Ground zero, I miss you, don’t know how to reach you
We’re going in circles, just to be doing the waltz
Let’s us hold hands and rejoice in the fact
That we’re sitting here together
Like two silly drunks

Memories will not let go
Our heart strings are more like a rope
That bind us in spite of this world
Track Name: Son de Mar
Oh, son de mar, que lindo eschuchar tu voz
Entre la corriente y el alboroto
Oh, son de mar, dejame sentir tu ritmo
Dentro del vaivén llegamos tu y yo

En una botella que lleva mi nombre
Como una pluma, volando entre las olas
Llegando a Gibraltar
Navego en mi rumbo al despertar

En una botella que lleva mi nombre
Como una pluma, volando entre las olas
Llegando a Gibraltar
Navego en mi rumbo al despertar

Translation:
Oh, song of sea,
how sweet, to listen to your voice,
Between the current and the motion.

Oh, song of sea,
Let me feel your rhythm,
You and I arrive
within the ebb and flow.

In a bottle that carries my name
Like a feather, flying through the waves,
arriving in Gibraltar
I sail on my journey to awakening.
Track Name: Tame the Night
Tame the night with its own magic light
If you wanna win, gotta make it from inside
You dreamers, you drifters, architects of time, rise and shine
To taste existence
Take the blindfold off, this mundane perception don’t belong
To you, you…

And I fought most of the time,
and I know that the road turns are wicked and trite
But a fall won’t prevent me from keeping the sight
Of my love, that awaits on the other side

Well, he tamed me now…never thought this lion roar would subside,
He knows how to win, makes my heart sing and sleep in peace
You dreamers, you drifters, architects of time, paint yourselves alive
To taste existence
Take the blindfold off, this mundane perception don’t belong
To you, you…

And I fought most of the time,
and I know that the road turns are wicked and trite
But a fall won’t prevent me from keeping the sight
Of my love, that awaits on the other side
Track Name: When the Lights
When the lights are coming out
and the wicked witches growl
I will make no fearing sound
for the wind to reveal me out

And I want to, and I need to
face my fears in the dark
and I want to, and I need to
face the music and dance

When the lights are coming out
and the moaning loonies shout
I will call my midnight owl
and the wind will help me out

And I want to, and I need to
face my fears in the dark
and I want to, and I need to
face the music and dance

When frustration settles in
Instead of receiving it
And taking it in..
Bounce it back against those walls
No matter what they say,
The light is yours

When the voices of darkness get loud
Out of control, wrecking havoc
Creating doubt
Oh..All I say is
Look at the Love
That manifests with every step
of your chosen road
Track Name: Mr. Green
Never wrote a song ‘bout love before
Never thought such love was possible
So let me attempt to,
take it for what it’s worth
Read between the lines
Help me through my words
If I stumble and fall
No worries at all
I’ll rise above, to you, my love

When you lay your eyes on me
There’s nowhere to hide
That gorgeous green shoots through my skin
Straight into my butterflies

Embrace the fear, it’s just a shadow
Caress and kiss, protect our bubble,
We’re submerged into each other

You…

How we lose ourselves into each other, oh,
We’re like magnets, feels so good
To let go

Let’s go flying, let us glide
Take me with you, by your side,
I wanna be there
‘til the day is through

You…
Track Name: Wintersong
The stars are shaking,
The snow has covered them all
The wind caresses the leaves that managed to hang on

Just like I managed to weather this snowstorm
Out in the cold with my feet bare like stone
Lighting the fire has kept me warm
Icicles couldn’t capture my soul

The street is dark but a glow emerges from you
No heart is empty,
no hand unshaken tonight

Winter is here but so is the magic
Unfolding with each falling flake
The noise of the world put aside for a new sound
Icicles couldn’t capture my soul



(Nanananana-nananana)
My heart was broken but grace has glued it back on
The chill erases but seeds awaken below
(Nanananana-nananana)
Winter is here but so is the magic
Icicles couldn’t capture my soul
