Track Name: Stars Are In Your Eyes
When the tide retreats
Yielding to a gaze
Clearing in its trail
Every trickle of a wave
And the dune standing proud and strong
Loses too to a windward song

When the moon is high
And paints the world in grey
Such peculiar times
When that mystical haze
Makes you think of things big and small
Makes you feel like nothing at all

When you race the sun to set
And you glimpse the silhouettes
Blending into night
But something stays alight

Stars are in your eyes
If you could only see
You are not alone
I've seen it in my dream
Let me ask you why
Do we believe in dreams
When it is clear as day
No one cares but me

Stars are in your eyes
If you could only see
You are not alone
I've seen it in my dream
Let me ask you why
Do we believe in dreams
When it is clear as day
No one cares but me

When you race the sun to rise
Morning glow is no surprise
However unwanted
But something stays within
But something stays within...
Track Name: Purum
Asking for more ice in your G&T
Trying to drown the dreams
That you had one day, one day way back when
Life was easy, you just lived, you were free

Staring blank eyed as the train screeches in
Trying to make your way in
And then something happened, the final link opened
Life is easy, you just live, you are free
Track Name: B74
Water always flows to the sea
People always long to be free
I will always love the sun on my skin
That it how the story always begins
Trees will always grow from the ground
Gravity will always pull us down
‘I could never live without you by my side’
How many times will we have to hear that line

Music, Music
There’s no need to say a thing, no need to complicate it
Music, Music
There’s no need for brainless speech, just stop and listen to it

I know this song is hypocritical
But you know I’m not very lyrical
So I’ll stop trying to find something more
I’ll just do what others have done before

Music, Music
There’s no need to say a thing, no need to complicate it
Music, Music
There’s no need for brainless speech, just stop and listen to it

Water always flows to the sea
People always long to be free
I will always love the sun on my skin
That it how the story always begins
Trees will always grow from the ground
Gravity will always pull us down
‘I could never live without you by my side’
How many times will we have to hear that line

Music, Music
There’s no need to say a thing, no need to complicate
Music, Music
There’s no need to say a thing, no need to complicate

Track Name: In the Field
In the field beyond the gate an old game of croquet was left to rust
And I still don’t know the rules to that game we loved so much
Stolen fruit we’d throw at cars, walk in the woods for a couple of hours
There’s nothing like the summertime, but it was better with you

I can hear the birds chirping outside
I can hear the wind blow in the sky
Yet the only thing missing here is you

In the field beyond the gate
In the field beyond the gate


In the field beyond the gate we’d build a fort and feel like we’re four
It’d always end up in us chasing cards, then run and laugh around in the sun
The rainy days come and we’d stay in, play some board-game for hours on end
There’s nothing like those fields of gold, but it was better with you

I can see the vines grow and intertwine
Soon there’ll be the sweet smell of the wine
Still the only thing missing here is you
Track Name: Seasons
I’ve eaten all that I can eat, I drank and quenched my thirst
But there’s something that is missing here, I didn’t see at first
Since the sun has left me here it hasn’t been the same
So I’m locked up in my memories with no-one there to blame
Hey, I think I’m falling again. Hey, I think i’m falling again
Hey, I think I’m falling again. Hey, I think i’m falling again

I wish that you could hear me scream
I wish that you could hear me crying out for help
Oh but, no-one else can help me, no-one else can help
So please bring it back, bring it back to me
Hey, I think I’m falling again. Hey, I think i’m falling again
Hey, I think I’m falling again. Hey, I think i’m falling again

Since the sun has left me here it hasn’t been the same
So I’m locked up in my memories with no-one there to blame
Hey, I think I’m falling again. Hey, I think i’m falling again
Hey, I think I’m falling again. Hey, I think i’m falling again
Track Name: Racecar
Don't hold me back
Don't want a conventional life
I wanna dig my path
I want the struggle and strife

Now let me be
None of this is for me
Because remember
I have the soul of a racecar driver

So many things I could do or people I could be, places I could see
Not enough hours in a day or days in a life for all those lives I have planned

Don't hold me back
Don't wanna punch in and out
I wanna try and be
All the things that I could be

Maybe one of these days
I'll get tired of trying
But remember
I have the soul of a racecar driver

So many things I could do or people I could be, places I could see
Not enough hours in a day or days in a life for all those lives I have planned

Don't hold me back

Now let me be
None of this is for me
Because remember
I have the soul of a racecar driver
Track Name: Faux Real
Voit le poirier fleurir

Voit le poirier fleurir
Il ne cesse de grandir
Rien ne peut l’arreter
Rien ne peut le tuer

Voit le poirier fleurir
Il ne cesse de grandir
Rien ne peut l’arreter
Rien ne peut le tuer


Voit le poirier fleurir
Track Name: Tell It to the Sea
Oh forgive me, forgive me what I’ve done, what I’ve done

It’s a typical human behavior, what is out of sight is out of mind
It is not my fault, it’s a human behavior, what is out of sight is out of mind

Ooh, how could I know that what I was doing was hurting you so
(Tell it to the sea now, tell it to the sea)
Tell it to the sea now, tell it to the sea

We will never change, but we still want to apologize for what we’ve done
We will never change, but we still want to feel a bit better for what we’ve done

Ooh, how could I know that what I was doing was hurting you so
(Tell it to the sea now, tell it to the sea)
Tell it to the sea now, tell it to the sea

Tell it to the sea now, tell it to the sea

Oh forgive me, forgive me what I’ve done, what I’ve done
Oh forgive me, forgive me what I’ve done…
Track Name: Environmentally Lazy
Letting water run takes some courage to do
It may seem effortless to you, but let me tell you it's true

Letting water run may seem pointless but think it through
Washing the muck off our pipes can only help, right?

If one day you're feeling down, turn on the lights, turn on the lights
Take a nice warm bath and let the water run

Let the money run. Need, buy, need more, again and again
The cycle never ends so might as well let the money run

Let the water run
Let the money run
Let the water run
Let the money run
Track Name: Daughters
DAUGHTERS

Why can’t you look me in the eye?
Is it because I told you
Something you weren’t ready to hear?
Maybe it’s too hard to try
Feeling what it’s like to be ‘her’?
But for the sake of our daughters…

My life is my own
I wasn’t born to listen to you
My life is my own
I wasn’t born for you to tell me
No

I’m tired of being scared
I shouldn’t have to ‘be prepared’
I want someone to tell me
‘La nuit vous appartient ma fille’

My life is my own

We’re born out of love
For our unborn children
We’re born out of love
For the world we live in
Track Name: The Delta
Children how I envy you
You get to see the sunrise
You get to see the fireflies
Children how I envy you
You get to see the world go round
With your bright young eyes
You get to see the fireflies

Children how I envy you
You get to see the sunrise in the sky
You get to see the fireflies
Children how I envy you
You get to see the world go round, and round, and round
With your bright young eyes
You get to see the fireflies...
