Track Name: The Light That Follows Me
The light it follows me all the way home
All the way home
All the way home

The light is shining through
Through the window
Through the window
Through the window

This light that follows me
where I don't know
And I don't know
Where it will go

The light that follows me
To the meadows where I sleep
To the places that I weep
Please do not go

The light that follows me
To the meadows where I sleep
To the places that I weep
Please do not go

The light it follows me
All the way home
All the way home
All the way home
Track Name: My darling, my sweetheart, my dear
My darling, my sweetheart, my dear,
I have watched you for so many years
and though my kingdom, so different from yours
we spot alike so many shores

And from high in my tower I see
I don't know what all of this waiting is for

Will I know then?
Will I be contended?
Will there be an end?
Will I know then?

I am so wilted
I need a nightingale
Some sweet bird to sing to me
To be carried to the sea
Softly sailing on those many shores
My darling, my sweetheart, my dear
My darling my sweetheart, oh my dear
Track Name: Ode to the Sun
Hear the lark sing his song
Let the sun shine down on me
If this is all there is in life
Let the sun shine down on me

I won't let it get the best of me
I want nothing more than to be free
So let the sun shine down on me

Watch the mayfly live his day
Filled with endless memories
If this is all there is in life
Let the sun shine down on me

I won't let it get the best of me
I want nothing more than to be free
Let the sun shine down on me
Track Name: Cold Water
Deep, dark, cold water
I am tired, worn
Wash me to the shore
I thirst for sunlight,
blooming flowers,
and a small garden like the one I would dream
Oh...

Sweet sky, shining underneath
the deep, dark, cold water
Ease my troubled mind
and fearful wonder
Let me plant meadows like the one I would dream
Oh...
Track Name: Another Day Come
Another day come
and another day gone
Oh, Where will tomorrow be?

The sun is returning
and spring has now sprung
And I am feeling a shift in me

I feel I have said
All I can sing in song
But I vow to go onward
In search of the dawn
I will tend to all of these weeds
This garden waits for me
And I am bound for thee
Track Name: In Calico
Last night I dreamed in calico
With simple hues of blue
I maundered through a sweet meadow
And rested on It's wool

Before I drift to sleep
I mourn the memories
that are mere memories
Straying to the deep

Before I drift to sleep
A somber tear may weep
A saddened song of grief
That was my memory
Track Name: Sun song
I am glad to see the sun came out
I am glad to see my garden sprouting
Up the seed from underneath

I am glad to see the sky is blue
And time I dare not waste
It is too sweet to live in fear

I watch the foxes leap for joy
The tiny blossoms falling from the trees
It is too sweet to be asleep
Track Name: Dream
I call to the mountain, mountainside
I am tired and worn but it is justified
I could sing, sing, sing, oh

I carry my basket through the hay
The oak tree tells tales and the birds serenade
They sing, sing, sing, oh

This is all I could ask for in life
To not fear to die

I nap on the field where the daisies lay
and dream that my life would consent to this day
I will dream, dream, dream, oh
I will dream, dream, dream, oh
