Track Name: A Million Acorns
I take your hand
Give you a million acorns
And all my faith
I don't want this to end

I say I want to live with you
I see cardboard boxes, pictures and toys
I don't want this to end
My love, your love
Prevails
Yes it does
Track Name: Like Nightingales
Love
Who do you think of
Everytime you sing?
I'd like it to be me
I'd like us to sing

'Cos you're my song
And I'm your voice
'Cos we are one
We're harmony

Love
Do you still listen to my voice?
Despite I'm gone for good
I'm a desert without you
Cry, rain on me
Your pain and your joy
I will always be

The steady mast
In your storm
We are one
We're harmony

Love, we are meant to be
Track Name: If I Were Your Man
I don't have much but a heart
Full of desire and good will
I don't have much but this heart
I need you to tell me
If this is a good heart
Or I'm wasting my days
I don't have much but my love for you
I don't have much but a bunch of mistakes
I hope you, good woman
Could see what I'm made of
See into my heart
And forgive all these things I've done

I don't have much but a heart
Full of desire and good will
I know it'll never be enough
To change the things I've done

If I were you man
I'd never go wrong again

I don't have much but a heart
And it is yours
Track Name: Practical Magic
You've seen my shades
You've seen my sun
You've seen the worst of me
And now you leave
With no remorse
You say I've been poisoning your thoughts
It's all so wrong
'Cos we are magic
Magic never dies
Whether you love me or not
See, we can turn dust into gold
Numbers into sounds
Music into love
Magic, we are
Magic never dies
Whether you love me or not

If you run away I'll fly to you
If you turn your back on me
I'll disappear, 'cos you are everything to me
Magic, magic never dies
Whether you love me or not
We can turn numbers into sounds
Darkness into light
Music into love
Water into gas

'Cos we are magic
Magic never dies
Whether you love me or not
Track Name: This Is Our Playground
I look in your eyes and I see a child
Just want to show you mine
Hold my hand, let's take a walk
Under the Sun

We're not supposed to be here
But it feels good, it feels right
It feels home
Sun
Right
Home
Love
Right

There is no why
Just you and I
Track Name: Man On Fire
You are the light I've been searching so hard for
You are all I need
'Cos your are the light I thought that could light my days
One day I found you, then I lost you, later you lied to me
There's a fire no one can deny
And that's where we came from, my love
Maybe one day we'll meet again and then we'll just kiss
Maybe one day we'll meet again and then we'll start to live

'Cos you are the light I've been searching so hard for
You are all I need
I thought you were pure
Like ribbons of childhood or grandma's cake
But I was wrong as usual
Baby I'm always wrong when it comes to women
When it comes to you
'Cos you are my light and I am yours
'Cos we are the light and I am yours

There's a fire no one can deny
And that's where we came from
There's this fire
I know you're gonna stay here
And that's where I'll burn
I'll burn alone

But you're still the light
The light I thought that could light my days
Yes you are the light I've been searching so hard for
You are all I need
One day I found you, then I lost you
Later you lied to me

Why did you lie to me?
When I never lied to you?
Nobody needs to do that
When you love someone
When you really love someone
You're always clear and strong
But maybe I was bound to burn
On my own

Now
At the end of the song
I know we'll never meet again
I know I'll burn alone
When the end of this song comes
I know I'll burn alone
So maybe I wasn't wrong, there's a light afterall
Track Name: Watercolor Paintings
I met a girl
We couldn't stop smiling
Her head was full
Of watercolor paintings

I wish she'd let me stay beside her
Forever
I never thought I'd turn into
A rough sketch

I met this girl
I will never forget her
No
Track Name: Cinnamon & Honey
The world has been cruel to us
But you still call him by his name
The world has been lying to us
But you still listen to his voice

I don't know what to do
But to wait and burn
Just like they taught me to
I don't know what to say to you
How to love you without harming you

One day you will see
Who I am
Just like I saw
Who you are

And the world won't change a thing
Not anymore
'Cos I'm your man
And the world can't change what we feel
Not anymore
'Cos I'm your man

'Cos there's a good way
The sweet way
An easy way
Just you and I
Track Name: Blonde On The Tracks
I feel weak, I feel dirty
Of trying
To move on without you
Of all these girls
None of them mean a thing to me
And that's when I feel weaker, dirtier
I'm tired of lying to myself
I just want you
To come back into my arms

But I feel weak, I feel ashamed
And it doesn't matter how hard I try
I'll always miss your smile
I'm tired of trying to sleep
Of that noise
I just need some rest
Somewhere near your head
Don't you see how perfect we were?
When we were in love

There's a speeding train coming at us
But I'm not afraid
'Cos I promised you back then
I'd never let you go

There's a blonde on the tracks
And I'll never move aside
There's a blonde on the tracks
And I'll never, never, never
Move aside
Track Name: A Million Thimbles
You take my hand
Give me a million thimbles
And all your faith
I don't want this to end

You say you want to live with me
I see cardboard boxes, pictures and toys
I don't want this to end
My love, your love
Prevails
Track Name: Naked Knees
I was waiting for you
Across the street, for many years
You came lightly and then you kissed me
Without saying a word

And every time I feel I'm going down
I go back to that day
Then I hold your face
And I kiss you for the first time

I was waiting for you
You were kissing the wind
With your naked knees
You were healing this lonely kid

And every time I feel I'm going down
I go back to that day
Then I hold your face
And I kiss you for the first time

And then I know the feeling will remain

You will always be on my mind
Clean and magic as the springtime
Track Name: Funhouse
So you think it's easy to write a song
Fit the truth into words
Set the facts straight
Tell the whole thing
When your mind's eye is bending like a spoon
But see, I cannot

So you think it's easy to love
When you're squeezing my heart like a fruit
You say it's moldy
But it's ripe
And sweet, yes it is
But you cannot taste it 'cos you're dead inside

So you think it's easy to write a song
Fit the truth into words
Set the facts straight
Tell the whole thing
When your mind's eye is bending like a funhouse mirror
I'm telling you now
No, I can't

All I wish
Is we could laugh at this
As if we were children
Who never lost their innocence at all
Track Name: Come Meet Love
Many men have said before "you are the one"
But I believe most of them were wrong

You keep sayin' I'm no good
You keep runnin' away from me
You run so fast you're barely touching the ground

Don't you see I'm on my knees?
Asking you to raise it with me
That is love, come to love, I am love, you are love

Do you remember when we sweated?
Can you still feel my skin over yours?
Can you still sigh to me while we yearn
And time has no power over us?

You keep runnin' away
You keep sayin' I'm no good
You say there's a book somewhere
That gives you all the answers
But you keep runnin' away
You keep sayin' this must end somehow

Can't you see I'm standing on my knees?
Can't you see I'm love?
Can't you see this is love?
It has always been
Come to love, come meet love

Do you remember when we were lovers?
Can you still feel me movin' inside your heart?
The way we were dancing
Like two lovers
Can you still feel me singin' to you?
Can't you see this was written long before you came to me?

Come meet love, come meet me again
'Cos we know one day we will love us
Can you still feel my sweat bathing your pure white skin?

Stop runnin' away
Stop sayin' I'm no good
Stop runnin' so fast
Your feet are barely touchin' the ground

Come meet love
Come with me
Again
Track Name: Scorchin'
There is no room for us
For our love
For our bodies
But I can smell you from here
I'm going to town
I'm gonna do some bad things to you

I got no money or car
I'm not the boyfriend type
I was made to love
I'm all good for love, I'm going to town

You'll still feel me for days after I'm gone
I'm gonna do some bad things to you

Do you want me to be sweet and tender?
I can do that for you
But later on I'm gonna do some dirty stuff to you

I got no money or house
I'm not your boyfriend type
I was made to love
From dusk to dusk
Nobody can love you the way I do

Lay your hand on my chest
Feel it beatin'
Strong like a horse
I'm gonna ride you all night long
Gonna do some dirty things to you
My love
Track Name: Intertwined
Love, don't be afraid
I'll never hurt you again
But I can't keep caressing you
Through these thick walls

Love, there goes your fear
The moment I wrap you in my arms
Your tiny warm body

Love is not slavery
But a caring hand
Unlocking a cage

And even if you meet somebody new
We'll always be right here
Sleeping in this bed of ours
Track Name: G'night, My Dear
Good night, my dear
Do you remember the way I look at you?
Sweet dreams, baby
Whenever you want me to
I'll be here singing to you
Because when I say always
I mean I'll always
Be here for you
