Track Name: Sweet Sister Starlight
Sweet sister starlight
Setting out your stall
In the sunlight
Smile at them all
Hypnotise the little ones
Neutralise the bigger ones...

Dealing with the demons
Always at the table
Healing with the angels
As long as she is able
Hypnotise the little ones
Neutralise bigger ones...

All for that better day
Hope and faith half gone
Still for that better day
For everyone
Hypnotise the little ones
Neutralise the bigger ones...

Sweet sister starlight
Drink your sacred wine
In the moonlight
Till the end of time
Hypnotise the little ones
Neutralise the bigger ones
Paralyse the little ones
Pay off the bigger ones.
Track Name: Chez Tina
hang the clouds down low upon me
let wind blow softly on me
where the river meets the sea
in whispered evening melody

sunset on the beach betrays me
sand and stone will not upraise me
angel voices come to guide me
where the harmony will hide me

chez Tina
chaque soir
on decouvre
l'espoir

now the rolling rocks are ringing
run right through by Tina singing
joy and pain and dancing, spinning
back again to the beginning

chez Tina
chaque soir
on decouvre
l'espoir
Track Name: Spellbound
Spellbound,
But I'm still standing
I look into your eyes.
And then away, I cannot stay, will not claim this prize.

See I fucked up,
I've been fucked over
I just can't take the heat
I should get right out of the kitchen, moaning, bitching,
But it's all too sweet,
And anyway...

I'm spellbound, spellbound.

All hung up
Hung up and left dangling
In my own sweat, in my own shit, in my own piss
And yet
Somehow I'm still angling
For a safe path out of this

And I'm spellbound
But I'm still moving
And I will still be free
You cannot win with grace nor sin
Please just let me be

Spellbound. Spellbound.
Track Name: Mistress Song
by turns my mistress harsh and gentle
wrapped in unfamiliar mantle
trapped by all that sets her free
beneath the grey forbidding sky

by choice my mistress for a song
will sell her secrets to the one
who bids the best but not the highest
burning bridges in the forest

bring my mistress poison ivy
she will make from it a gravy
for the evening sacrifice
then throw the plate back in your face

by turns my mistress gentle harsh
and loving, with the simple force
of one whose right is always wrong
will answer every bell you rang

by choice my mistress in the sea
did cast away her jewels so
earned her keep another day
and let the leaning lesson lie

now bring my mistress finest wines
to wash her face as evening wanes
splash upon your carpet floor
break the glass and disappear
Track Name: Wander In A Dream
Wander in a dream
Everything I've ever seen every place I've ever been
It all was in my dream.

I don't know where to go.
I don't know what I know.
Cannot see what time will show what will happen to me so
Maybe I will never know.

I suppose I'll continue writing to you
Even if you won't write to me
Everybody knows I'll continue thinking of you
Even now I am free.

I'm running far away.
Nowhere I can stay, nothing left to say
I'm just running far away.

And I'm wishing on a star.
I've forgotten who you are.
So very long so very far I was wishing on a star
I've forgotten who you are.

Little way down the road I met a man who loved you
Such a sad and lonely place
Little way down in time I'll be beyond you
But that man will always wear my face

And I suppose I'll continue writing to you
Even if you won't write to me
Everybody knows I'll continue thinking of you
Even now I am free.

I wander in a dream
Everything I've ever seen every place I've ever been
They all were in my dream.

I don't know where to go.
I don't know what I know.
Can't see what time will show what will happen to me so
Maybe I will never know.
And I hope I never know.
And nobody ever know.
Track Name: Storm's Over
Storm's over, rain gone.
Storm's over, rain gone.
Storm's over now.
I'm on my way home.

Raging storm is over,
Wind has ceased to moan,
The rain has stopped, the penny's dropped
And I'm on my way home,
All rain gone.
Storm's over now.
On my way home.

I feel the summer coming.
I feel it in my bones.
Feel that summer coming
On my way home.
All rain gone.
Storm's over now.
On my way home.
