Track Name: Embrace the Rain
Through my life the wind blew a memory
So playful, the memory was so carefree
Hiding and smiling in places where only children could see
Binding and secret the fountain of youth was always dry
I will sit beside you
I will watch the weather change
I will lead you over
We embrace the rain
Track Name: Earth
I hear a warning as broken earth begins to breathe
I need to find the river and the streams
That rumble in the earth beneath the urban dream
They echo in the air above the ash and bone
The people didn't care until the world was theirs
It's the feeling in the moment
It's the power of dreams
It's the rhythm of the ocean
It's the world that I see
It's the power of boasting the love that you sing
It's the motion, it's the essence of all living things
It's the passion that's evolving
It's the world that I know
It's the heaven that we live for
It's the light that will glow
Down to the pasture with seeds that we sow
Mountains are rising and rivers still flow
Down to the valley and up through the trees
Open your wings, fly away in the breeze
Track Name: Lightning Tree
Down to the riverside
To open my eyes and tear away this hole
Soft sun and silver lines
Burn with pride in time
Time, Time, Time.
As life begins to burn
You will find me dancing in the rain
As life begins to sway
You will find me dancing in the rain
The river overflows
Be strong
As lightning strikes
The meadow overflows
Hold on
As lightning strikes
My body and my soul
Live on
As lightning strikes
My body and my soul
Live on
As lightning strikes
Track Name: King of Hearts
Everything is changing
As the world spins round
Though my eyes were once young
I start to lose my sight
And the rhythm of my heart
It begins to slow
We know this will not last forever
I will show you all
And we all climb so high
And we all delve so deep.
But our memories fade away, goodbye
And we all want, we all need more time.
Let go my love.
Farewell, be strong
Our fire burns on.
Now time has come
Kiss me goodbye
Track Name: Build it Higher
Listen now whatever happens here I got you
Listen now I got us something to pull us through
And we could build it higher, stronger
Don't you wanna live within the truth?
We could build a life together
All we need is to believe in you
Oh, how you lighten the rainy days
How peacefully, how peacefully you strengthen my honesty
Oh, how you calm the thunder storm
How carefully, how carefully you rescue my modesty
Things are never gonna be the same
But I will be here by your side
And there beneath the yellow moon we made our fire
Every second went to waste but mine
And we can build it higher, stronger
Don't you wanna live within the truth
We could build a life together
All we need is to believe in you
Listen now whatever happens I'll get us through
Listen now whatever happens here I got you
Oh, how you lighten the rainy days
How peacefully, how peacefully you strengthen my honesty
Oh, how you calm the thunder storm
How carefully, how carefully you rescue my modesty
Track Name: The Essence Between Us
Do you remember me?
Do you remember me?
Do you remember me echo of the past?
Do you remember me watching from afar?
And this was the finest moment, so pure and so fine.
I mistook you for an angel
Never had the heart to steal your smile
Who could deny the essence inside?
I thought you were an angel
My perfect love
I thought you were an angel
With your silver wings surrounding me
I thought you were an angel
In your eyes I knew you'd chosen me
I thought you were an angel
With your silver wings surrounding me
Track Name: Arctic
We sway in the cold
And wish for longer

Our time is fragile
And we will never sing again

I don't know how I feel
Are these feelings for real?

I fell into the Arctic
And I hope that I don't drown 

And I dream of a time
Where the clouds hide your smile

And the sky crowns us all crystal blue
Track Name: Waterfalls
And I hold, in my hand the finest grain of sand
But in the final hall of fame
You were the greatest love of all
I was the man who gave it all
Now fly away
To the waterfall
Listen to the call
Now fly away
To the evergreen
Let our heart be free
Hey I saw you floating into the air
I never knew that you would grow to be so tall
Hey I heard you singing without a care
I always knew that you had faith just like me
Now fly away
To the waterfall
Listen to it call
Now fly away
To the evergreen
Let your heart be free
Oh fly away
To the evergreen
Let your heart be free
Oh fly away
To the evergreen
Let your heart be free
Hey I saw you floating into the air
I never knew that you would grow to be so tall
Hey I heard you singing without a care
I always knew that you had faith just like me
Track Name: Whispers of a Sleepwalker
Sleepwalker
The lights you see (Burn't out feeling)
Are shining on forever
Caught by no-one.
You'll be home before they know
Fading into heaven
Peaceful slumber
You beckon me to hide away
Will you pull me under
Before I wake to find myself here again
Tonight I'll shy away
Before you go
And lead me astray (The shaman comes)
I don't know if life is here
Stuck in time.
Sleep again
I hope you're holding on
If so, I forever will
Make my way down through the lights
Will you hide tonight?
