If my songs were maps I'd want them to stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean.

Track Name: Black Rose
I was the skin for your thorns
The pale light for your bloom
Black rose

I was the blood for your earth
The twilight in your poison
Black rose

Across the mark of unlit roads black rose
I wait for you where no one goes black rose

I was the undecided conscience borne
The fragment of a shattered sun black rose

I was the last of the good
You have left me without name black rose

I loved and I love you still
I want you but I have lost my will
Track Name: Broken Mirror
I was only a tide apart
Only as close as fingers touch
I was only an age away
Only as near as tongues can taste

But the whole plane shattered for me
Gone with every little thing I see
I know that i've never been apart from you
And I know that i've never been apart from you

I was only a wing apart
Only as pressed as arms can hold
I was only one breeze north
Only as joined as limbs can take

You were only a whisper down
Only as far as pleasure breaks
You were only the crying gone
Only as high as voices reach
Track Name: Missing Words
Three words of a love song
Lie broken across the scene
Tangled up parts
A whole i've never seen
One line from the story
Lies missing from the verse
Three words i lost
Regretfully unrehearsed

So where should i go
For all the things i don't know
Where should i leap
For the good faith I can't keep

Letters to a love song
Three words and they were set
A ring around a promise
The hope we never let
Words to you I coudn't speak
Are gone without a trace
Three words unsaid
The gaps I can't replace

So where should i go
For all the things i don't know
Where should i leap
For the good faith I can't keep
Track Name: Feather Light
Was is circumstance or was it fate
The day your lips met mine
Will it be fortune or even bad luck
I'll know before it's time

If your love should turn dead as stone
Stop this fire consuming me alone

So tired of falling here come the calling
But still you won't reply
Weary of waiting yours for the taking
I've nowhere left to hide

If your love should turn dead as stone
Stop this fire consuming me alone

I'm floating away hold me tight
I'm drifting away feather light

You're the unbroken and the unspoken name upon my tongue
The unregrettable and the unforgettable knot that's come undone

If your love should turn dead as stone
Stop this fire consuming me alone

I'm burning away hold me tight
I'm drifting away feather light
Track Name: Wide Shut Eyes
It helps me to help myself
It keeps me from getting lost
It helps me keep the lines uncrossed

When despair will brush her grey blue kiss
The ache will fade like the morning mist
Wide shut eyes
I blindly see

It turns me from turning on myself
It wakes me from dream’s dull nest
It turns me away wanting less

When the poison leaves its violet trace
The bruise will lift like dawn's embrace
Wide shut eyes
I blindly see
Track Name: Reste la Marée
Nos coeurs battent au rythme de la marée
Reste la marée reste la maree
Les reves percent le voile et je me tais
Reste a marier reste la mariée

Mes pas perdent le sens du sentier
Reste a trouver reste a trouver
Mes mains touchent l'eau de la rosée
Reste la rosée laisse la rosée

La quete s'efface au pas des années
Reste des années reste des années
Tes lèvres m'effleurent ma bien aimée
Ma bien aimée ma bien aimée

Les feuilles tombent et je m'en vais
Reste je m'en vais reste je m'en vais
Les saisons passent je reviendrais
Reste la maree reste la maree

Tes lèvres m'effleurent ma bien aimée
Ma bien aimée ma bien aimée
Les saisons passent je reviendrais
Reste la maree reste la maree
Track Name: Pieces of Ourselves
Pieces of ourselves we left behind
When we made our way back across the great divide
Pieces of ourselves we lost out on the track
Each day the flame burns more candle in the wax
Every path I've found opens up to you

Shards of memories I sought to hide
When we had no choice but to smother all the light
Shards of truth uncomfortable within
I kept their secret closed under the skin
Every choice I made led me back to you

When dreams are skin and skin is torn
When kings have crowns and crowns have thorns

Fragments and remains that flashed before us
When we sought to fill all the spaces in the gaps
Fragments that we hurled so hard into the breach
I ran from the shock and then kept you out of reach
Everything I've lost drives me back to you

Pieces of me in word I spelt too late
Now that the door is closed and I'm out on the street
Pieces of me still remain yet to die
Somewhere the truth was held hidden from our eyes
Even the unknown still belongs to you

When dreams are skin and skin is torn
When kings have crowns and crowns have thorns
When lives are thread and thread is worn
When kings have crowns and crowns have thorns
Track Name: Girl in the The Corner
Come my girl in the corner
Even wrapped up you're bare
You move like wind on the water
When the weather is fair

Your pale mouth your weary sighs
Your southern skin your dreamy cries
Beginning at the end somehow
Drawn to the ether now

Come down my girl from your tower
Your heart is here in the ground
In the billowing grass and blooming wild flowers
In the earth that's ploughed up and down

Your dark green eyes your tiny feet
Your slender waist your lover's heat
Beginning at the end somehow
Drawn to the ether now

Come my girl in the corner
Near the window framing the sky
My hand on truth never another
Come and together we'll lie

Your honey tongue your quiet laugh
Your perfect fit my long lost half
Beginning at the end somehow
Drawn to the ether now
Track Name: Il Cammino
Ricordo una volta ma non quando
Il tempo sai ti lascia andare
Perché il passato fa male
Forse e' il momento di partire

Saprai non perdere il cammino?
Saprai vedermi anche nel buio?

Ti cercherò fatti trovare
Ti aspetterò non mi abbandonare

Di notte tornano i tuoi occhi
Cieli azzurri dentro il mare
Parlavi ma non sentivo voci
Parole perse nel profondo

Saprai non perdere il cammino?
Saprai vedermi anche nel buio?

Ti cercherò fatti trovare
Ti aspetterò non mi abbandonare
Track Name: Like Water Like Stone
I’m counting time on a pebbled shore
I see it pass from some to more

I throw a stone and a ripple's made
I watch it grow until it fades

The journey's hard and the path is long
I walk the way that keeps me strong

But even mountains end up as sand
Upon the ground for us to stand

A million rain drops are falling now
Into the ocean they are bound

A million circles on the surface placed
They fade as fast as they are traced

We are like water we are like stone
We are of flesh we are of bone

And when the tie is closed and drawn
Like water and stone we are reborn
