Track Name: Sorrow Bearing Tree
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…
Track Name: Perfection in Disguise
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
Track Name: Miracle Days
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
Track Name: Collide
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
Track Name: Breathe With Me
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
Track Name: Seraphim
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
Track Name: Rain and Rivers
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
Track Name: The Spiral Leads
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
