Track Name: Delicate Angel
You hand me the light
I’d have lost my way again
Walking in circles twice
Making me
Confused

Tears were cold in my eyes
So you held me like a child
I‘m made for your smile
Your voice
Loving you
Makes sense

Delicate angel in your arms
When you take me
Just a fragile flower
In a field but
Pick me please
So the scent of love
Is on your hands when you hold me
I’ll have the answer
I’ll have the answer

An invisible tide
Now states my need of you
Your breaths upon my hair
Knowing you is
Perfect

The ocean tune to the night
I’m in paradise now
No shame on how I feel
Loving you is
So right

Delicate angel in your arms
When you take me
Just a fragile flower
In a field but
Pick me please
So the scent of love
Is on your hands when you hold me
I’ll have the answer
I’ll have the answer

I need
All your love surrounds me
Surrounds
Surrounds

Delicate angel in your arms
When you take me
Just a fragile flower
In a field but
Pick me please
So the scent of love
Is on your hands when you hold me
I’ll have the answer
I’ll have the answer

I need
When you take me
Just a fragile flower
In a field but
Pick me please
So the scent of love
Is on your hands when you hold me
I’ll have the answer
I’ll have the answer
Track Name: Forbidden (Dark Space)
Is the sun making love to the sky?
Are the moons tears falling on my floor?
I watch I‘m fascinated
I wonder
Powerful thoughts where do they come?
From perfect emptiness
The piano cries and tells a story
Does it always have to say goodbye?
Do I always have to say goodbye?

Tell me what to do
To catapult me into that dark space
No I can’t restrain
My thought and words I can’t be forbidden
Don’t you know?
I love you before I know you
Don’t you know?
I’m close
Closer

Is the meaning of life hiding by?
A kaleidoscope of chaos
I watch for my amusement
Consoling
The promise of unknown excites
So hold me in your arms
Ecstasy follows
I know now
Doesn’t always have to be goodbye
I don’t always have to say goodbye

Tell me what to do
To catapult me into that dark space
No I can’t restrain
My thought and words I can’t be forbidden
Don’t you know?
I love you before I know you
Don’t you know?
I’m close

Closer to the answers
I‘m searching
Closer to the answers
Searching

Tell me what to do
To catapult me into that dark space
No I can’t restrain
My thought and words I can’t be forbidden
Don’t you know?
I love you before I know you
Don’t you know?
I love you

Closer to the answer
Called love
I love you before I know you
Don’t you know?
I’m close
Track Name: Crawl To The Edge
What’s that expression?
In your eyes
Trying to read the thoughts that you have
Don’t you realise

Wind me hard
Take my clothes
Leave me naked
In your hold
I melt I’m nervous I’m yours

Let’s crawl to the edge
I need the stuff that love is made of
Craving your heat
Passion scorching our souls as we meet
Let’s crawl to the edge
I need the stuff that love is made of
Craving your heat
Passion scorching our souls as we meet
Let’s crawl to the edge

I try to explain
This golden haze
You’ve grooved my corners
I’m amazed
Now you’ve tantalised

Wind my mind
Body too
Won’t stop spinning
Just us two
I know I’m ready I’m yours

Let’s crawl to the edge
I need the stuff that love is made of
Craving your heat
Passion scorching our souls as we meet
Let’s crawl to the edge
I need the stuff that love is made of
Craving your heat
Passion scorching our souls as we meet
Let’s crawl to the edge

Don’t look back
Don’t look back
Take a chance
Don’t look back
Don’t look back

Let’s crawl to the edge
I need the stuff that love is made of
Craving your heat
Passion scorching our souls as we meet
Let’s crawl to the edge
I need the stuff that love is made of
Craving your heat
Passion scorching our souls as we meet

Let’s crawl to the edge
I need the stuff that love is made of
Craving your heat
Passion scorching our souls as we meet
Let’s crawl to the edge
Track Name: Extraordinary
You have your own cupboard
You put your own thing
Hold your own
I don’t know anything
About you no more
And I needed it so
Now my head’s somewhere else
And the history remains
Sits on the shelf

All the pain that I’ve pulled through
Freed myself for something new
Something more me
Except that I knew
I’m no longer your wall
So be careful now you don’t fall

I never thought I’d feel this crazy
I never thought I’d feel alone
I never thought I’d know the pain of losing
Your love
But I’m living through it
It’s extraordinary
I never thought I’d be this crazy
I never thought I’d be alone
I never thought I’d know the pain of losing
Your love
But I’ve come through it
It was extraordinary

The space we left in our old bed
The mood has changed it all lies dead
No one’s to blame
The last stage’s game
And our needs
Could not be met
And the plans we made in love
Now neglect

I have my own cupboard
I put my own thing
Home’s my own
You don’t know anything
About me no more
And I want it that way
The worlds opened her arms
And now I’m feeling kind of safe
There’ll be no harm

I never thought I’d feel this crazy
I never thought I’d feel alone
I never thought I’d know the pain of losing
Your love
But I’m living through it
It’s extraordinary
I never thought I’d be this crazy
I never thought I’d be alone
I never thought I’d know the pain of losing
Your love
But I’ve come through it
It was extraordinary

Extraordinary
You must feel it too
Track Name: Planet Of Love
You have the pieces
Don’t throw them away
How patiently I’ve waited
As I wake each day
Maybe it’s nothing
Just a game we play
Or perhaps we will extend this
In a physical way

Or am I wrong?
Got carried away
Or am I wrong?
Have I got carried away?

I wanna walk
On the planet of love
Picking up words like shells and
Holding them to my ears
And tentatively to my breath
I’m feeling
Truly loved
Truly

Is there too much space
Between heart and words
And the million miles and stretch ahead
Feelings you create
I’ll give you them back
My favourite scene in front of us
A world is right

Or am I wrong?
Got carried away
Or am I wrong?
Have I got carried away?

I wanna walk
On the planet of love
Picking up words like shells and
Holding them to my ears
And tentatively to my breath
I’m feeling
Truly loved
I wanna walk
On the planet of love
Picking up words like shells and
Holding them to my ears
And tentatively to my breath
I’m feeling
Truly loved
Truly loved
Track Name: Asking Too Much
Silent child I’ve returned
Quiet afternoon
The rain trying to get in
I’m that child again

So I close my eyes and watch the picture
To your face I recall
And sometimes when you’re not around
Sometimes when I’m feeling down
I want you
To chase my fears
Yes wipe them clean away
Your tender Touch
Am I asking too much?

That when we’re old
Can we still love?
Stand on the sand
And watch the skies turn blue
Remembering back
That when we’re old
Can we still love?
Stand on the sand
And watch the skies turn blue
Remembering back
To our young love
Remembering back
To our young love
Remember back
How we first fell in love
How we first fell in love

I was floating with the world
Floating with ideas
Floating with commitment
Don’t want a superficial love
Is that asking too much?
So run across my universe
And whisper my name
I’m searching for a new way
To wake up
Am I asking too much?

That when we’re old
Can we still love?
Stand on the sand
And watch the skies turn blue
Remembering back
That when we’re old
Can we still love?
Stand on the sand
And watch the skies turn blue
Remembering back
To our young love
Remembering back
How we first fell in love
How we first fell in love

It’s a deeper meaning
So let it out
I sense you
When you’re not near
And then you wait
To wake up
Was I asking too much?
Track Name: Fighting To Get Out
The sky is falling on my dream
Bringing chaos to my hell
I won’t get hysterical
No the past is dead and
I’m standing outside your door
I know paradise within
Why am I frightened?
Why am I frightened?
To go in
To go in

I’m screaming but no sound emits
Tears are streaming
But my face isn’t wet
Words are forming but I haven’t spoken yet
I try to know myself but I’m complex
You wouldn’t understand me
Who’d blame you?
Not me

So I sit gently rocking myself
Looking further than my eyes can see
Something stirs within me
And it’s fighting to get out
I sit gently rocking myself
Looking further than my eyes can see
Something stirs within me
And it’s fighting to get out
Is this love?
Is it

I try not to dwell on this
So I bash those thoughts away and
I stand here connected now
I’m flowing with my day and I’m
Sitting close to my fear
But I’m not breaking down
Tears fall like straight words
My tears fall like straight words
Escaping

I’m screaming but no sound emits
Tears are streaming
But my face isn’t wet
Words are forming but I haven’t spoken yet
I try to know myself but I’m complex
You wouldn’t understand me
Who’d blame you?
Not me

Oh so I sit gently rocking myself
Looking further than my eyes can see
Something stirs within me
And it’s fighting to get out
I sit gently rocking myself
Looking further than my eyes can see
Something stirs within me
And it’s fighting to get out
I sit gently rocking myself
Looking further than my eyes can see
Something stirs within me
And it’s fighting to get out
Is this love?
Is it love?

Won’t get hysterical
I won’t get hysterical

Is it?
The past is dead
Track Name: Dance On The Moon
Knowledge burns a hole in my head
So I sit still and wait it out
On the edge of nowhere
I might be but
I stand still
I’m braver
Hold me till I don’t cry no more
Stay until you’re really sure
Enjoy the moment
Don’t look for the next
I laugh in your face

You fool yourself you fool yourself
The price was high to pay
Don’t fool yourself don’t fool yourself
The price is high

Like a dance on the moon
Can’t you stay the distance?
I know that you’re gonna run soon
Like a dance on the moon
When your breathing scares you
I know that you’re gonna run too

Leaning forward I can’t reach
The girl I was before this teach
Leaning forwards
Will I fall?
Into love

I fooled myself I fooled myself
The price was high to pay
You fooled yourself you fooled yourself
The price is high

Like a dance on the moon
Can’t you stay the distance?
I know that you’re gonna run soon
Like a dance on the moon
When your breathing scares you
I know that you’re gonna run too
Too

Like a dance on the moon
Can’t you stay the distance?
I know that you’ll runaway soon
Like a dance on the moon
When your breathing scares you
I know that you’re gonna run too
Too mmm too
I know that you’ll runaway soon
Like a dance on the moon
When your breathing scares you
I know that you’ll runaway too
Track Name: Ocean's Door
Look into my eyes
Why can‘t you see beyond
To who I really am
Never will you find
Into the next world
I’ll carry this hurt
Into the arms of angels
Maybe they can hold
My sadness in a smile
I’ve hidden from your day
Something I could touch
Call it my world pain

But someone whispers my name
Makes me understand
Someone whispers my name
I’m standing in the sand

At the ocean’s door
I rest my case
I’ve fallen for you
At the ocean’s door
I lost myself
In needing you
At the ocean’s door
I couldn’t breathe
I was drowning in you
At the ocean’s door
I think its love
It’s all about you

A fragrant rain
Now washes my face
Soft betrays the moment
Of all those memories
Then I saw a flower
Open wide and smile
I would give all that
If only I could fly
To that new place
Of forward looking thoughts
Quickly I’d repair
My truly broken heart

But someone whispers my name
And I think I understand
Someone whispers my name
I’m standing in the sand

At the ocean’s door
I rest my case
I’ve fallen for you
At the ocean’s door
I lost myself
In needing you
At the ocean’s door
I couldn’t breathe
I was drowning in you
At the ocean’s door
I think its love
It’s all about you
Mmm
