Track Name: Shadow In The Light
SHADOW IN THE LIGHT

She was a shadow in the light,
All the secrets of her heart fading fast
As the radio played in the dead of night
Like a ghost from the past

In a windswept town,
High summer coming round
She danced all night with those beach town boys
Swept her feet off the ground

She was a shadow in the light, we're still holding on
Hold on tight, cause we're so far gone

Shadow in the light, coming out tonight
Shadow in the light
Shadow in the light, coming out tonight
Shadow in the light

Invisible kids in the pinball palace
Glow of machines
Where the promenade winds
To the beachside pier
Neon jukebox scenes

She was a shadow in the light
Roman candles explode as they kissed
In that beachside town,
High summer coming down
You'll be so sadly missed
Track Name: The Sun Will Shine Again
THE SUN WILL SHINE AGAIN

The sun will shine, the sun will shine again
The sun will shine, the sun will shine again

The winter night long was long
All my hope was gone yesterday
In her eyes I see
A river to the sea faraway

A little bit of love in your heart for me
A little bit of love and harmony
The sun will shine, the sun will shine again
The sun will shine, the sun will shine again

The lonely road is long
Long forgotten song' s melody
Fire from a spark
Searching in the dark endlessly

The sun will shine again
Down upon the kingdom of the rain
The sun will shine
Tthe sun will shine again
Track Name: Junior Astonomer's Club
JUNIOR ASTRONOMER'S CLUB

She looks towards the stars
wishing for a lucky day
Tape tangled cassette wouldn't play
See "the starlight in her heart"

Victoria's Day, flip the single let the b-side play
Love's bleeding in her heart she'd say
See the star-light in her heart

She was a chapter in a tragic book of love
A star-crossed lover's love
Junior Astronomer's Club meets tonight!

The Fortune Teller said,
"According to the horoscope she read"
According to the lonely life she led
See the starlight in her heart
Lowest low to high tide
Old river to the dark seaside,
Now we found we were so lost inside
See the starlight in her heart

She was a chapter in a tragic book of love
A star-crossed lover's love
Junior Astronomer's Club meets tonight!
Junior Astronomer's Club meets tonight!

Bleeding hearts in love again,
Silver jewels of tears swirl in the rain
When I close my eyes she appears in dreams

Track Name: Teardrop Town
TEARDROP TOWN

Teardrop Town where the sunshine is rare
She moves like a ghost with her blood red hair
If you catch the gaze of her eyes ice blue
Her wicked eastern wind will put a curse on you

Yes two hearts are better than one
But in Teardrop Town you're better off ... to run

Teardrop Town full of crooked grace
Sweet revenge lies in her sweet embrace
Like a badge she wears her mystery
Since her lover disappeared into the deep dark sea

Teardrop Town secrets pave the street
You can see it in the eyes of the strangers you meet
Hear their whispers as you walk on by
Her eternal love is gonna make you cry, cry, cry
And the moment when he found out why
"I slid a knife into his heart just to watch him die"

Teardrop Town once you're here you'll stay
My rocky skirt will become your grave
So if you find yourself passing throughBeware ... cause I'll bewitch you too
Track Name: Emily Blue
EMILY BLUE

Spring came to this northern town
Like a record spins around
Turning my world upside down in a heartbeat

Emily Blue, lost in her memory
She dreamt that it's true, Emily

Spring came to this northern town,
Season' s cycle spin around
Roller-coaster up and down in a heartbeat

Northern town, winter turns to spring
Northern girl, she would surely sing
Emily Blue
She shines, she shines
She shines, she shines, she shines

Oh Emily
She shines, she shine
she shines, she shines, she shines

Emily Blue
Black light, black light
Emily Blue,

Oh Emily
She shines, she shine
she shines, she shines, she shines

Oh Emily
She shines, she shine
she shines, she shines, she shines
Track Name: Broken Dreamers
BROKEN DREAMERS

Ashes and dust
Lost diamond in the carnival night
Merry-go-round
Young lovers hold on so tight

Wake up my dear for we are the broken dreamers

The book of lost love all hail these neon lovers
Pages are torn apart from cover to cover
Her bittersweet kiss
Electric in the endless summer night
Let's get out of town,
One last chance to get it right

Wake up my dear for we are the broken dreamers
We are the falling stars and make believers

Wake up my dear for we are the broken dreamers

Her silhouette cast a magic spell,
Waves crash to the shore
Crimson glow of the sunrise,
Her heart longs for more
These star-crossed lovers,
Haunting the heart of a fleeting glance
Put a coin in the jukebox darling,
One last dance
Track Name: Land Of 1000 Goodbyes
LAND OF 1,000 GOODBYES

We faded away the sunshine today
The carnival has locked it's gates
The rain is on it's way
Where have you been my cinema queen?
Her watercolour memory slipped into a dream

Oh where does the summer go
If eternal sun shines in your eyes?
Oh sing me your summer song
The land of 1,000 goodbyes

Bicycle blue, I saw her in you
The king and queen of lonely dreamsLove began to bloom
Time in freeze-frame
Someone whispered her name

She read from her novel then threw it on the fire
Black songbird singing Bird on a Wire
Deep beneath the ocean, beyond the light of day

The mermaids of the high tide
Swept them all up into play
Track Name: State Of The Art
STATE OF THE ART

I don't know quite how to play your game
My dear friend you know you're not the same

State of the art
Arrow to the heart
When we're together we're falling apart

You see I can't see through your strange disguise
You see I see a stranger in your eyes

The truth is it's a lie, feel like I could die
I still want you... I can't deny

If I could solve your sad soul' s mystery
Once we sang in perfect harmony
Track Name: Lucky Streak
LUCKY STREAK

Her love is dead to you now
Drive the highway to the sea
Oooh sweet love broke their hearts
Mercy, mercy, mercy me
Faraway, broken hearts beat slow
She would lay, like a river bed of snow
Mountainside, wayward blackbirds flown
Deep inside, they were so alone
He would wait 1,000 years for you

Torn in two, on a lucky streak
For you, torn in two
On a lucky streak, down on a lucky streak
He would wait 1000 years for you

Lost at sea, miles from the shore
Yes we know, nothing is for sure
And she waits, misty morning rain
The highest stakes, for love that is in vain
He would wait 1,000 years for you
Track Name: Northern Love Song
Now she's gone,
Left in the early morning dawn
Walked alone,
Winter wind chills the skin and bone

Darling darling darling
Where did our Love Song go?
Falling falling, melodies fall like northern snow
Darling darling darling
Where did our Northern Love Song go

Spring appeared ghost of her lost love disappeared
Melodies, summer we sang in minor keys

Darling, darling darling
Where did our Love Song go?
Falling falling, melodies fall like northern snow
Darling darling darling
Where did our Northern Love Song go?

Remember your love
Remember my love
Remember our love was true

Northern girl
Top of the world was your pearl
Words you wrote
Finding the perfect missing note

Darling, darling darling
Where did our Love Song go?
Falling falling, melodies fall like northern snow
Darling darling darling
Where did our Northern Love Song go?
Track Name: Stars In Her Eyes
Oh my love
Help me transcend the pain
Bring forth the spring rain
Stars in her eyes
Stars in her eyes

From here to eternity
Deep as the dark blue sea
Stars in her eyes
Stars in her eyes

Oh my love ocean deep to mountain high
Oh my love
High as a kite can fly
Oh my love
Stars shining in her eyes
True love can make you cry
Oh my love
Stars in her eyes
Stars in her eyes.. see less
Track Name: Empire Of The Night
EMPIRE OF THE NIGHT

Spent all these years searching
Searching the darkness for the light
Here in the empire of the night

Yeah adrift upon the seven seas
Deep in dreams, melodies, memories
Here in the empire of the night

I tried to light a brilliant spark
Now I'm swimming in the deepest ocean dark
Here in the empire of the night

We're following the strangest map
I see the future cause I'm in the black
Here in the empire of the night
All I want to do is love you true
There ain't nothing in this world
I wouldn't give to you

Here in the empire of the night

Yeah I'm searching for a heart that's pure
We're looking for a sacred cure
Here in the empire of the night

Oh lord, this cruel world has worn me down
Love's memory a haunted crown
Here in the empire of the night

I'll try to write the perfect song
But life's not like that
Right or wrong?
Here in the Empire of the Night

I'll love you till the end of time
Birds will sing and bells will chime
Here in the empire of the night
Track Name: Girl By The River
GIRL BY THE RIVER

Girl by the river, yes boy forgive her
Her beauty is timeless as the sea
Bells of the church chime
Marking in real time
Sweet honey sunshine on me

Oh girl by the river
Will wash our sorrows to the sea

We became sparrows in the heartbroken desert
Drawn towards the rivers edge
Wings tired and wounded
Circling downward
Lions await at the shore
But the wind was with us
For one last victory
Before the cruelty of life takes it's toll

I once believed in magic
Gods and devils
I still believe our love was true

We became sparrows
In the warm autumn moonlight
Where no one could hurt me and you
Track Name: The Deluxe
THE DELUXE

We all know that the four winds blow
And the rocky road will wind
Static snow on the radio
As you left our love behind

Frozen still in the window sill
The girl that time forgot
Cinema queen soft focus scene
DeLuxe restaurant, forget me not

Don't leave me in the rain
To watch the flowers grow
I'm waiting here in vain
Behind our shoppe's window
And one day when I die
In the valley of the shadow
I'll meet you in the rain
To watch the flowers grow

Mr Lee crossed ancient sea
And walked a crooked mile
All the gold in China
Would pale to her smile
We all know this earthly world
Is a blessing and a curse
It'll build you up and break you down
For better or for worse
Track Name: A Foolish Symphony (Wait)
A FOOLISH SYMPHONY (WAIT)

Wait, sweet darling don't you go
I'm still dreaming after the show
But the drive-In's getting dark
Oh my skylark
Oh please don't go
Are we dead and gone?

Wait, we'll sing a melody
A foolish symphony
The birds will ever see, flown to July sky
The sparkle in your eyes.
Don't let our love die.

Wait the hour's getting late,
A tangled twist of fate
Love can be so cruel
I was such a fool
Broke the golden rule
Darling please don't go
Oh it's been so long
Oh since our sweet love has gone
Are we dead and gone?

Strike a chord, write a tune

Maybe one day they will fall in love again
Brother that'll be the luckiest day of his life

Maybe one day he will write a song for her
Brother that'll be the luckiest day of his life

"I remember when I fell in love with you”
Track Name: Aloha Blue Sky
ALOHA BLUE SKY

Aloha blue sky
Her heartbeat won't lie
Love can make you cry

Her heartbeat won't lie
Sparkle of rain in her eyes
I'll love you until the day I die

Aloha blue sky
From mountain high
Time will testify
Her heartbeat won't lie
Sparkle of rain in her eyes
I'll love you, until the day I die

Aloha blue sky
No the heartbeat won't lie
You know that love can make you cry
Aloha blue sky

Her heartbeat won't lie
Her love will get you high
The heartbeat won't lie
Sparkle of rain in her eyes
I'll love you until the day I die
Aloha blue sky
Track Name: Falling Like A Star
FALLING LIKE A STAR

Since you're gone, yeah I'll carry-on
The sun and the moon will cast a magic shadow
Since you're gone, yeah I'll carry-on
Tangled in two symphony blue of sorrow

Love's falling like a star

Since you're gone, yeah I'll carry-on
The cinema show will cast a magic shadow
Since you're gone, yeah I'll carry-on
Will birds in the sky fly just as high tomorrow?

Love's falling like a star
Track Name: Time Disappears (La Lune de L'amour)
TIME DISAPPEARS (LA LUNE DE L'AMOUR)

Ain't it strange? Ain't it cruel?
Slipped away, played it cool

Now she's gone, I can't go on
Dear Lady Time disappeared

Ain't it funny? Ain't It sad?
Today let go of yesterday's hand

La Lune, de l' amore
Dear Lady Time disappears

It's wicked and it's cursed
Deepest love, it hurts the worst

Lonesome highway, Mistress Moon
Shangri-La, Brigadoon

Now she's gone, I can't go on
Dear Lady Time disappeared

She's blessed, she's pure
For her love there's no cure

You're enchanted and estranged
Dear Lady Time disappears

It's wicked and it's cursed
Deepest love, it hurts the worst

Lady Time plays her hand
Endless desert, grain of sand

Magic lovers descend beneath the waves,
Dear Lady Time disappeared

She's a saviour, she's a bitch
Under her spell your bewitched
Dear Lady Time, you left me behind
Sands of time in the tears that you cry

She loved me and left me to die
Dear Lady Time disappears ...
Track Name: Dream Another Dream
DREAM ANOTHER DREAM

When dreams are fading with the day
And you can't find the words to say
Hold on, hold on

When dreams are turning into dust
You're gentle heart could turn to rust
Hold on, while love's still strong

"Let's run away" she said
"It's all in your head" she said
They're living like they're dead she said
Dream another dream

Yes we all will live and die
Gone within a blinking eye
Hold on, hold on

We'll give our best to love that's true,
Darling dear I love you true
Hold on, while love's still strong

"Let's run away" she said
"It's all in your head" she said
They're living like they're dead she said

Dream another dream
Track Name: Sunset Beyond The Sea
SUNSET BEYOND THE SEA

Sunset beyond the sea
Love's bittersweet key

The loneliest melody
Once a harmony

What did you see in a lonely heart like me?
Where rivers flow into the endless sea

Sunset beyond the sea
Blood of love's heartbeat
Boy with the haunted eyes
Beyond the waves starry skies

What did you see in a lonely heart like me?
Where rivers flow into the endless sea

What did you see in a lonely heart like me?
Track Name: A Letter (To Our Future Selves)
A LETTER (TO OUR FUTURE SELVES)

A long forgotten photograph
She's sounding like a phonograph

Lost along the way

He met her on a cloudy day
Sunshine came to stay

Lost along the way

Saw her at the picture show
She would stop and he would go

Lost along the way

Spinning like a ferris-wheel,
You never know how you'll feel

Lost along the way

By design, star align
Lost in time, without you

Umbrellas and bicycles
Morning light, icicles

Lost along the way

A letter to our future selves
Dusty records on the shelf

Lost along the way

By design, star align
Lost in time, without you

Lost along the way
Track Name: Sweet Sorrow
SWEET SORROW

Hello, sweet sorrow
Summer slipped away

Left me ... today

Goodbye (goodbye sorrow)
My blue sky (blue sky)

Winter lover's tears
Falling through the years

Yeah, he loved you more than life

Annie don't you cry
Sunset in your eyes

Annie... oh, your heart to the knife
He loved you more than life

Ooh Annie don't you cry
Ooh sunset in your eyes

Annie don't you cry
Track Name: You Were My Summer Sun
YOU WERE MY SUMMER SUN

We're gonna write a book
A tattered paperback of memory
A scratched 45 of melody

Oooh my my
You were my summer sun

My my my
The years have got us on the run

Oh my my

We thought that we were oh so clever
Weathered the inclement weather
Whether it was now or never
We both knew the sun can't shine forever

We'll make a picture show
Slow motion of the falling snow
Black and white, stop and go
We thought that we were oh so clever
Weathered the inclement weather

Whether it was now or never
We both knew the sun can't shine forever

You were my summer sun
Shining warmth in my winter years
Shining brightly on my midnight tears

You're my summer
You’re my summer sun
Track Name: Drive-In
THE DRIVE-IN

She never cries,
Ocean colour tears, memories of the years pass by

Thunder and the rain
Falling on the pane, songbirds will sing so high

Lightning flashes to the sea
You and me are gonna be alright

Come on darling hold me tight,
You and me are going to be alright

Do you want to go to the Drive-In show?
Do you want to go?

Strawberry moon, Echo City girl
Starling in a swirl sings a tune

Yes we'll meet again

Teardrops in the rain
Stardust has washed away

Do you want to go to the Drive-In show?
Do you want to go?
Track Name: The Loneliest Night
THE LONELIEST NIGHT

Girl, he dreamt of you every night
Felt darkness in the morning light
With summer on the run
We're spinning round the sun
Yeah, here comes the loneliest night
Lovers in search of the light

Stars shinning just out of sight
Here comes the loneliest night

Her love's teardrops turning into rain
Sparkle on the window pane
Skylark sings a sad refrain

Our summer left too soon
Beneath the silver moon

Yeah, here comes the loneliest night
Lovers in search of the light

Stars shinning just out of sight
Here comes the loneliest night

What would you do at the end of the day
If love slips away
You're left with your hopes and regrets?

Words you can't speak
For the answers you seek

Listen to your heartbeat
Yeah, here comes the loneliest night

Lovers in search of the light
Stars shinning just out of sight
Here comes the loneliest night
Track Name: Fall Of The Summer Heart
I / MAZE OF YOUR HEART

The maze of your heart
May lead your love astray
A trail of crumbs
Food for birds of prey

Summer seeds
The cards reveal what may
The maze of your heart
May lead your love astray

Where'd your love go
Now that you've found that your lost?

The maze of your heart
Filled with precious blood
A ship to the shore
Northern star above

Flowers and weeds
In the constellation's glow
Will you find your way out?
Only you will know

Where'd your love go
Now that you've found that your lost?

II/ SILVER TEARS OF RAIN(MY DARLING DEAR)

My darling dear cries silver tears of rain
Beneath the darkness of midnight skies

A love so deep, I could die
Beneath the darkness of midnight skies

Oh my love
Yeah yeah my love
Oh I'll testify!

III/ STAR GAZING

No I can't sleep at night baby
'Cause every dream I have is of you

No star gazing
'Cause my wishes won't come true

Your love's gotta hold on me baby
Oh no I can't let go!

Your love's gotta hold on me baby
Of my heart and soul

IV/ FALL OF THE SUMMER HEART

Ooooh

Your summer love got me high
Never thought we'd say goodbye
Till summer disappeared...

In a lightning thunder clap
We took the long road back

Met her in the house of the ocean rain
She's going to find a new lover
Going to start again

Ooooh we sang
Love will tear us apart
In the fall of the summer heart
Summer disappeared

V/ SHE DISAPPEARED

What took me so long
To write you a song
With proper heart and soul
The hit and the miss
Sorrow to bliss
Clapping our hands like this...

Bah ba ba ...

She disappeared
It's crystal clear
That silver tears are melting in the sun
Ooooh

VI / VICTORIA (MISS INDIA)

She appeared
At your window
Autumn night, the northern light
Aglow (oh oh oh oh oh oh)

Victoria (oooh la la la)
Victoria (oooh la la la)

Flown from her cage with the wind and the rain
And the sun on her wings
She is free

Victoria (oooh la la la)
Victoria (oooh la la la)

VII / LOST AT SEA

Midnight empire
Haunted hymns
Sparrow singing
Skipped a heartbeat
In a minor key

I'll surely love you forever
But our hearts are lost at sea

VIII / A GHOST OF MYSELF

So here we are, what's it going to be?
Going to take the long road back to the sea
A ghost of myself yeah it's plain to see

And all we've got left dear
Is you and me.
