He has gone Heaviness lifts like mist On a crisp, spring morning, Letting light lengthen Into the corners of the room. Time returns with thoughts That bounce along the lily pads, Laughing and skipping, Singing and dancing, As a butterfly rests its wings I breathe In and out, to and fro, The balloon bobs in the air, Shaking loose the leaves That quiver and fall into the water. He has taken the road Long and lonely, it winds, relentless. Wretched, it stretches, Deeper and darker, Wider then narrower, Long and lonely, On and on. The water ripples Winds whisper the season’s changing clime, Thinning the branches Thickening the gorse, As the butterfly disappears. He's out the other side The beaten track burning The place where the rivers merge, spin That mountain That ocean That city where the lights dance, sing The rhythm of a different beat. Winter's in the water A dance in ice laced with snow Freezing that taste of where your thoughts go Along the valley And up the spine Within, without The bracken, the vine The white carpet cakes the heath Now I can see this, Now he has gone. I breathe In and out, to and fro, The balloon bobs in the air, Shaking loose the leaves That quiver and fall into the water. He has taken the road Long and lonely, it winds, relentless. Wretched, it stretches, Deeper and darker, Wider then narrower, Long and lonely, On and on. That mountain That ocean That city Where the lights dance...

It's a brand new day Get a coffee anyway It's the order of the day Is the sun already up ? (mysterious french spoken words) Tatoue-moi les contours de ma ville Détoure-moi la peau des buildings au pastel gras Le ciel du matin, gris le jour, peau-de-chagrin Carreaux givrés, un grain de beauté Boots en Hiver, sandales en Eté Noam, tu cherches les saisons Partir à l'heure, partout ailleurs...

I like to dream, at night because I can be whoever I want do what I wish to do my nightmares are cool too my boyfriend hates, that situation because when I ask him to go to bed it's never for that sweet temptation but always for what's gonna be in my head What I wish to do If only I had known about it What I wish to do I wish I could have stayed that magnificent in the morning What I wish to do I wanna keep those green eyes What I wish to do As brilliant as in that dream, let me be that way even if it's unwise. Automatic, happiness seeker Down through the ages, throughout the world Set the alarm for one hour later Baby please take me at my word Beautiful counting rhyme Every night in every corners of the globe Snooze it one more time As I can fly, fly a little more What I wish to do If only I had known about it What I wish to do I wish I could have stayed that magnificent in the morning What I wish to do I wanna keep those green eyes What I wish to do As brilliant as in that dream, let me be that way even if it's unwise. Dream it, dream it The day I walk in town, the night I rule the world But each time a loved one passed away I was waiting for the night to meet again We danced and laughed through a shiny day The day I walk in town, please let me be that way

I was right, you are not that soldier who was going to make us go trought the storm Overseas ain't no express carrier to proclaim my love ain't no shortened form For that reason, I am starting to wonder On the high seas, things are not as they should be. Distance is just a space in between Chance is to see your name on my screen your hidden feelings, your shy words, please make it deeper baby please, baby please don't fall on your sword Anytime, anywhere

Ring Road 04:15
Let's go fast Before it's too late One hour left Is it a matter of fate Swirl of smoke And car radio You take the ring road No other way to go You are jumping Far into the night Mystically reflecting All the city lights One-way street Hypnotic trance You're dying with sleep But could you just give it a chance Please go fast...
6.
When you dream about heaven It makes you wanna die When you dream about heaven It makes you wanna die You gotta feel the vibe But you will play it down Was the talk of the town You're inspiring jibes, cause you're a bit strange You gonna live at night And you gotta make it right You gotta bring me down Cause like a water sprite, you're a flood of light That's right When you dream about heaven It makes you wanna die When you dream about heaven It makes you wanna die You gotta feel the vibe But you will turn round You gonna let us play You gotta bring me down, tied and bound You gonna hold me tight And yvou gotta make it right You gonna reach the sky Cause like a water sprite, you're a flood of light That's right When you dream about heaven It makes you wanna die Ask for the 7th destination But do it on the sly 'Cause if your mum sees you smiling She will keep you by her side A sense of hope abounds She ain't gonna cry On the high seas of loneliness I'll take you for a ride The curtain drops I swear I'll remember you As the one who reached the shores of a strange new land Let's go...
