Track Name: There Goes Your Man
With your last tear your really flooded my heart
Despite the fact you are made of desert
With your last tear so fake and corrosive
Dry under my light, you reptile lady

I thought I knew you
I thought I liked you
I thought I loved you
I thought you loved me
But I don't know anymore

I think you lied to me
Now I know for sure

See, there goes your man
And he's never ever ever coming back
Track Name: Kite
I was holding gently your kite
But I guess the wind
Was stronger than your will

I saw you running so many times
But I hoped you'd get back
Back into my arms

And now that you've met somebody new
Someone who'll never love
The way I love
Or hold your kite
Firmly against the wind

And now that I know that I'll die alone
Forever tangled up in your string
In your game
Like a marionette

I saw you running so many times
Now I know you'll never
Never come back
Track Name: 24
Twenty-four
It's the number I have seen
In my latest dreams
So young
So pure
Twenty-four
You know I've been waiting for
So long
So young
So pure
Twenty-four
Track Name: Almost a Ghost
I met her when she was twenty-two
One month later she turned twenty-three
Now she's twenty-four and she's gone forever
She wants to know everything
Everything but who I am
I said "baby, you won't find a man filled with fire this good-hearted"

Now I'm back again in the middle of the road
Lonely, loveless, hopeless and lost
I guess I'm nothing more than a ghost
Circling life looking for love

A hungry ghost
How in the world could you explain that?
A dead lover crawling back to life
You are the one
You are home
Wait up for me
Say you'll wait
I'll never give up on you
'Cos you are my one and single love
You are the one

I met her when she was twenty-two
One month later she turned twenty-three
Now she's twenty-five and she's gone forever

Forever
Track Name: Rōnin
It's over
It couldn't be love
Not if you don't know me
At all

I told you
You were to be the last girl
I guess you didn't care
Care at all

Are you evil
Or just lost?
I still care for you though I know
You laugh at me with scorn

It's over
Has always been
I just hope I'll find my peace
Since there's nothing left there for me

I told you
I'd give you anything
I guess you thought I was
Full of sweet nothings
But my word's my law
It's all I have by now

It's over
Yes it is
Track Name: Lost In The Woods
Everywhere I'll go
I know I'll be seeing you
And everywhere I'll go
I know I'll be looking for you
Like a hunter flooded with hunger

And everywhere I'll go
I know I'll be sensing you
Everywhere I'll go
I know your scent will linger
Like a hunter flooded with hunger
Like a ghost who can't move on
Like a lover loaded with lust

A chant she sings
Bathed by the creek
I don't know anymore
Who or what or where I am
But deep in the woods
I get lost
No matter what
Stars shine up above

Deep in the woods
Track Name: From Nine To Nine
Where are you tonight?
I guess you're smiling at strangers
See all those men waiting in line
They only crave for your charms
But I didn't come for that
I want more from you, child
I intend to work hard
From nine to nine

From the craddle to the grave
If I got a second chance
I'd build a world where you could dance
From where we met until death
I'd sweat my sins and faults
I'd understand
I'd listen and wait
I'd stand aside if you need me to
From nine to nine
From the craddle to the grave
Track Name: First Time Ever I Saw Your Face (Ewan MacColl)
The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the endless sky, my love

And the first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move through my hands
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command

And the first time ever I laid with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I know our joy would fill the earth
And last till the end of time, my love

The first time ever I saw your face
Track Name: When I Rocked You To Sleep
Baby, we're safe at last
Close your eyes, I'm holding you
Listen closely to my voice
There's nothing to worry about
Keep close, hold me tight
We're almost home, enjoy the ride
If you ever fall down I will be there to pick you up
I feel your body, I feel your warmth
I can feel what you keep inside
