Track Name: RENDEZVOUS
watched your train lights fade
I yearn again for your embrace
in these shadows of twilight...

don't let it be for good
farewell for now, my love
all I breathe are sighs...

I left a message on your phone, saying "I love you"
I'll never find another girl that compares you to
I will cherish all my life this rendezvous
inside me there's a sense of sweet butterflies
Track Name: FLAWLESS
she is flawless like her skin
with a smile to lead you in
all your days you'd waited for
for her to come knocking on your door

a fear runs through your mind
all you've gots' this time
she's standing there in her summer dress
so beautiful you must confess

now you can't even say hello
and her gaze is letting go
her world is such a sudden place
the minute flashed before your face

a flutter steals through your heart
and stammer from the start
we can dream for all tomorrow
and send our love ahead and hope to follow

now you can't even say hello
and her gaze is letting go
all your days you'd waited for
for her to come knocking on your door
Track Name: PSYCHEDELIC SKY
is it too late
for what I've got to do
to release me?
lover
yes I am loving you
some kind of loving

surrounded by the sounds
of all the strangers and these changes in my head
I was outside and feeling cold
what was it I had told myself to forget?

fly high, try to clear my head now
flying my paper plane
from everything that feels insane
gliding seven different highs
through a psychedelic sky
a kaleidoscope tripping through my mind

wake up
in a different place
I see a rainbow
breathing incense
now I see her face
dawn will come tomorrow

soft and warm
my fingers trace her body dressed all over in white lace
she won't fade away like all the rest
'cos I've been waiting for the sun to shine again
Track Name: CAFE MADELEINE
all around I catch my breath
on the window pane I write your name
I draw a heart and sign a kiss
sitting here with my memories

the road along from St Pierre
the table's here that we would share
your picture hangs there on the wall
my croissant drops down to the floor

I didn't know it
how could I have known it?
the last time that I saw you
there for the last time
I would not have left you
how could I have left you?
standing at the doorway
could have been nowhere else
but a very French affair

I tried to phone but you were never there
I thought you'd found some other man
I waited with such misplaced pride
so forlorn and so hurt inside

they say you won't have felt a thing
but your laughter is no longer there
now your eyes follow everyone
at these tables where you once belonged

I didn't know it
how could I have known it?
the last time that I saw you
there for the last time
I would not have left you
how could I have left you?
standing at the doorway
so I came back again
to the Cafe Madeleine
Track Name: PSYCHOSIS
Greg was a guitarist in a band
the idolatry turned his mind to sand
Lena loved her man but he went away
all alone the knife would ease the pain

within these walls there are voices in their heads
the unit serves to protect them from themselves
outside real insanity surrounds
they call it The Pindown
and society will control your mind

Bobby was behaving like John Wayne
give him a gun and he'll surely shoot again
Les was born a boy and not be a girl
he wore a wig of rather fetching curls

in the white room there is nothing to be said
they'll strap you down and start messing with your head
but this misfit ain't ready to be read
they call it The Pindown
to be analysed, this psychotic shell

in the white room there is nothing to be said
they'll strap you down and start messing with your head
outside real insanity surrounds
they call it The Pindown
and society will control your mind
Track Name: DREAM NUMBER TWO
circles blown of smoke I see
turning round
coming back at me again
the twist of fate
it makes no sound
the still of night
is mocking unconcerned

watching the swallows soaring free
in daytime, the playground it should be
but she was there
and I was here
and over there
was everywhere to me

all of a summer
through all of a winter
the waters got darker
and the sky turned to thunder
no taste of a moment
of fulfilled emotion...
....to dream....
the chance of a lifetime
where two come together
to hold one another
embracing the future
our two hearts forever
would beat ever faster...
...I dream...

come on, hold on
I'm fighting this atmosphere
I'm watching, waiting
drowning in a sweat of fear
I said yeh.....
I'm coming so hold on tight
and everything will be all right
Track Name: COLOUR THIS WORLD
colour this world
your eyes are now open
from dark to a new mornings' light
stir from your slumber
as nature awakens
a new day takes over from the night

filling the soul
with such energy
and the promise of the day
these sounds in stereo
as you stand on the threshold
love all you can in this world

sweet music will come
lifting the spirit
your fingers caress the notes you hear
the children will play
somewhere far from the city
in fields where the air is so clear

no use is the worry
of what can't be changed
far from the solace of your sleep
for dreams are mere echoes
of you thinking too deeply
give what you can to this world
Track Name: SHOT THROUGH THE HEART
you took my love
and all the words I spoke
betrayal hurts
never understood
I thought of you
but then so did you
you made a fool out of me

now I'll never fall in love again
I'll never find another you
this adoration in my heart has fallen apart
I was shot through the heart
now my thoughts are devoid of emotion
stabbed in the back
now my blood is filled with your poison

loved you every day
could you kill this man?
not fair to feel this way
but you won't understand
'cos you are you
the centre of your universe
like a woman can

now I'll never fall in love again
I'll never find another you
this adoration in my heart has fallen apart
I was shot through the heart
now my thoughts are devoid of emotion
stabbed in the back
now my blood is filled with your poison now
now love has gone
I'm on my own again
Track Name: BELLS OF LONGING VALLEY
your love gave me purpose
I can smell your favourite perfume
in my sleep
lifting my eyes that somewhere
from the cold of a winter where I dream

I could drift away
carried by a breeze
to where the trees are swaying
and the rustle of their leaves

The Bells Of Longing Valley
are calling to my heart
and the years that we've wasted far apart
I've tried to understand it
to explain to myself
I am older and wiser in my head

I chose a path that's easy
ending something oh so nearly
for me and you
so you took your love and beauty
to fall into the arms of someone new

was it always there
so pointless to deny
always where
it's hidden deep inside?

The Bells Of Longing Valley
are ringing from afar
and the days that I've wondered how you are
I can sense your existence
as I close my eyes
I'm yearning for your presence I realise
Track Name: STELLAR
looking down
to where we are lost
synchronise
to what time forgot
a portal waits
to transform our minds
heaven's gates
are there for all mankind

all the tales of wisdom and of light
ancient mysteries buried out of sight
where's the word forsaken long ago
and the symbol to take control?

for what did we know
and what did we care
in the chaos and the darkness of our lives?
what do I know
and what do I care?
this stellar universe was here to guide us

can we be Gods within our human shell
and climb the steps to the temple in our heads?
this world will shine forever in the sun
for this journey of ours has just begun

and here I am feeling in control
there's no going back, the secrets in my soul
no emptiness or oblivion lies ahead
all the Faith's align as one in the end
