Sorrow Bearing Tree Let’s not wait ’til Summerland Take my hand and make some room For our souls to mend We planted seeds That came to bloom Is this what life deserves What love is worth I suffer from an overkill of sensitivity I feel all My tears are shaken from the Sorrow Bearing Tree I'm on my hands and knees What is left to offer, When you won’t receive from me My treasures, my empathy We planted seeds That came to bloom Is this what life deserves? What love is worth? I suffer from an overkill of sensitivity I feel all My tears are shaken from the Sorrow Bearing Tree I'm on my hands and knees The morning comes to consciousness, there’s life in the palms of my soiled hands Our souls stretched out, across the sky. I’ve seen the moment Is this too much, is this too much to take Is this too much to give Is this too much to ask Is this what life deserves What love is worth…

Perfection in Disguise Intro I am the daughter of earth and water, I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores In those days, those far off days By astral lights, by moonbeams bright You rose to disappear You're stepping down and feeling strong Where has your compassion gone? Standing here - Perfection in disguise All alone - Reflected by your lies. By life and love, oh please descent I breathe in you my heart, Why don't you comprehend? Perfection in disguise, Reflected by your lies, I see it in your eyes… Standing here - Perfection in disguise All alone - Reflected by your lies. Feeling strong - Perfection in disguise Oblivion I am the daughter of earth and water, I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores I change, but I cannot die

Miracle Days She was surrounded by soft purple mist Color of amethyst. And you passed her by, With an indifferent eye. Your so-called ‘love’ has an impatient beat If you keep on running There’s no soul, no heart you’ll meet The world you find, would make you sigh, On a miracle day, a miracle day. From kiss to kiss, eternal bliss, On a miracle day, a miracle day. So Thunder said ‘Here is no water but only rock’ Nevertheless, it’s you who decides if you want to stay stuck Stuck in your ways, missing out on the miracle days In hearts delight Feeling so right With change in motion, your heart will burst, On a miracle day, a miracle day. In full devotion, you stand right here, On a miracle day, a miracle day. But you keep on running

Collide Seven years of life and love We fear ourselves Fighting battles in our heads Of what lies ahead I'm spinning circles round and round You lift me up instead We're breaking the waves This desire feels like fire We're burning up inside We're breaking the waves Memories gone wild Things you do recall seem right ahead Seeds of desire Would you light my fire, again? Collide - we're breaking the waves I'm spinning circles round your head You lift me up instead We're breaking the waves This desire feels like fire We're burning up inside We're breaking the waves Seven years of life and love We’re burning, we’re burning - Seven years of life and love We’re breaking, we’re breaking - Seven years of life and love When stormy waves come crushing down And serpents crawl along the ground I see the stars shine overhead For days to come In the end

Breathe with me Verse I will breathe All because you are here Right beside me to stay And I won't try to escape Faith again PreChorus Breathe with me Chorus Another day is rising and you're not here Just stand beside me Verse 2 I won't turn in your eyes I will stand the cold this time Trust the ice will melt between us Chorus Another night is over and I'm feeling sad Just stand beside me Another day is rising and you're not here Just stand beside me Mid I'm on your way

Seraphim I saw the skull beneath the skin Starring the Seraphim Burned invisible and dim When wings break, I am wakeful for their sake Time to murder and create Time for you and me now Time for something new I saw the skull beneath the skin Starring the Seraphim Burned invisible and dim There’s healing to be found, in the mystery of sound Time to wonder do I dare… For decisions and revisions I will show you how I saw the skull beneath the skin Facing the Seraphim Full of fire fierce within When we reign, it’s a totally new game Unfold your wings Regain your fire I count to six We’re getting higher I saw the skull beneath the skin Unfold your Seraphim As life anew begins Another healing to be found, in the mystery of sound

Rain and Rivers I surrender, surrender to you, If I could Part of you keeps my destiny now So hear my plea Pray for the rain That follow rivers And you'll cry, When you feel, when you hear, when you see The beauty I surrender, surrender to you, If I could I am no stranger to sacrifice But this can’t be the price Pray for the rain That follow rivers And you'll cry When you feel, when you hear, when you see Once you said that you adored me, We made love in ecstasy and you saw me Present pain is what we feel Though dreams we feel Pray for the rain That follow rivers You cry, When you feel, when you hear, when you see Once you said that you adored me, We made love in ecstasy and you saw me

The Spiral Leads ‘When everything seems so bleak, so hard, and love is barred to me like a fortress door I haul myself through the dark, and slowly I regain my strength once more’. I wander through life, Reaching for love, Can’t handle this any more, I’m bursting with questions, Searching for answers What has our journey in store I give it my all For that is my nature But I can’t take this no more You’re crossing my boundaries, You are breaking my limits Where is the love ‘When everything seems so hard, and I feel I can’t control anything anymore. I court my way through the mud , it takes time to regain some strength, somehow.’ I will wait for another time For my life is not only now And the spiral leads to tomorrow, All is connected somehow I give it my all For that is my nature But I can’t take this no more You’re crossing my boundaries, You are breaking my limits Where is the love In this all Where is the love, Don’t blame Me for try to hold on to what we got ‘cause I believe we got a lot Don’t fight me for keeping to mind dreams of our destiny
