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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
