Track Name: Cerulean
fields of evergreen
the sky is cerulean
stay and while away the hours
Orion, Pleiades
over the maple trees
the moon illuminates the flowers
I could go for a while there just to find what I could see
I would seek out his smile there even though I know things aren't always what we want them to be

hot sun beating down
and there's no shade around
hard to keep yourself from burning
paved road turns to sand
on the dusty land
but cooler air and clouds returning
I could go for a while there just to find what I could see
I would seek out his smile there even though I know things aren't always what we want them to be

hold my hand
oh it's been so long since then

run away with me
towards the cerulean
and the moon and fields and flowers
open your eyes dear
there's not a thing to fear
but all we have is these few hours
I could go for a while there just to find what we could be
I would seek out your smile there even though I know things aren't always what we want them to be

but for now things can be what we want them to be
Track Name: Little Sailor Boy
little sailor boy in your lollipop ship
the sky is clear and blue for your sunny trip
but when the clouds appear and darken the skies
little sailor boy, do you turn round and hide

little daisy girl with your sugar smile
they'll hold your hand and flatter you for a while
but when they walk away and leave you alone
little daisy girl, can you find your way home

and when the time has come to just decide
and you can have the chance to grow
but you choose your status quo and die
you'll remember that I told you so

pretty princess girl with the world on a string
you have no need to fear anything
but when the string is cut and you learn how to fight
pretty princess girl, can you make things right

pennywhistle boy in your apple train
you chug through city after city again
but when the cities blur and you just want to break
pennywhistle boy, can you stop for your sake

and when the time has come to just decide
and you can have the chance to grow
but you choose your status quo and die
you'll remember that I told you so

maybe we are not just what happened to us
we don't have to choose to be numb
and maybe if we are not just what happened to us
we are what we choose to become

little singer girl with the strength of heart
you knew you loved him from the very start
but when your love's returned and happiness made
little singer girl, can you stop being afraid
Track Name: Twilight
twilight
how do you cast your spell so slow
with all the hours in the daytime, your time lasts only a blink or so

twilight
how many times i thought i knew
the way that happiness should find me, blindly following the same things

till nighttime
once dark and melancholy hours
unfolded like a lotus flower, full of possibilities unknown and lovely

twilight
how things can change within a day
to wake up any little morning, not knowing you'll meet the love you never knew
would stay
Track Name: I Am the Water
the current's too fast
the river's too wide
we'll get swept away if we try to swim to the other side
that's what you told me

the ocean's too deep
the tide is too strong
i'm dragging my feet cause i think this idea is very wrong
that's what you told me

well i am not afraid to go out there alone
the thing you feared is really just the truth i've always known
i am the water
i am free

the wind blows too hard
the rain's coming down
this ship's gonna crash, if we don't jump then we could drown
that's what you told me

the night is too dark
the lake is too calm
if we go too far, i'm scared that i won't know where we have gone
that's what you told me

well i am not afraid to go out there alone
the thing you feared is really just the truth i've always known
i am the water
i am free
Track Name: More
where do you go to find yourself?
do you go to the sea?
do you go far from me?

where do you go to heal your heart?
do you go to the trees?
do you go far from me?

where do you go to come alive?
do you go to the shore?
do you go wanting more?

and if you find yourself, can you ever come home?
