Welcome to the land of the permanent sun – Where the flowers are melted and the future is fun

There were spotlights flying, through the sky – From a winter wonderland, catching out 

The beasts hiding in the clouds, no future, bad man in the valley where you wake up every beautiful day 

And the world you created in your image is golden – Valley made of mirrors – the light is so bright – You can feel like a pagan


Well I don’t want no demon to tell me what it’s all about – No black magician telling me to get my soul out

Don’t believe in violence, I don’t even believe in peace – I’ve opened the door and my mind has been released

So believe what I tell you, it’s the only way to fight in the end – Just believe in yourself, you know you really shouldn’t have to pretend

Don’t let those empty people try and interfere with your mind – Just live your life and leave them all behind

[Junior Boys]

Life, love, like time don’t end – Left right, they spin within – Come to me, I come your friend

Those hopes, they’re growing old – Love waits for you to bond – Come to me, I’ll rest your soul


Spend lots of time dreaming – All through the day – When love look in your eyes you turn away

You like to stay free – That’s what you told me – That’s all in life you ever want to be

You like to sit high on a hill – Count the daisies in the field – It’s your own way of playing solitaire

You won’t answer no question – Or say where you’ve been – The last thing you think you need is a friend

Such a pretty face – There ought to be somebody there to fill the space

[Ashford & Simpson]

Nothing’s gonna change my love for you – I wanna spend my life with you

So we’ll make love on the grass under the moon – No one can tell, damned if I do – Forever journeys on golden avenues

I drift in your eyes since I love you – I got that beat in my veins for only rule – Love is to share, mine is for you

[Sebastien Tellier]

Music you’re making me blue  – While I’m alone with out you  – Fill my heart and fill my soul with tenderness 

Music fill my loneness  – Music is still all around  – It’s time for changing all the sounds 

How about your inspiration  – It’ll never end  – Seasons all will choke a man

[F.R. David]

Like the face of a flower in the rain – And  before us the silence as loud as my flames

At the port when you leave for the last time – Built  a pyre that’s going to be seen for miles

Because  I am, I am daylights

[Songs of Green Pheasant]

I’m looking up – I see the sky – I look and wonder 

I see the lightning – I hear the thunder – It brings the rain

[American Spring]
