Track Name: And So It Begins
AND SO IT BEGINS

And so it begins dear one
You’re such a sweet surprise
It’s the kindness in your touch
The longing in your eyes
And so it begins dear one
With your voice so late at night
So bare the mysteries of your soul
Cause it’s you I want to know
Now I don’t know, my dear
‘Cept I fall more every day
Falling deeper like your kiss
And I miss you deeper still
Won’t you call my name
Don’t you see I’m not the same
You’ve taken me by storm
And the eye of the needle is your face
Won’t you hold me down
In your arms I will be bound
In this trust I cry again
And the thread is your embrace
And so it begins dear one
You’re such a sweet surprise
It’s the kindness in your touch
The longing in your eyes
And so it begins dear one
With the calls late at night
So bare the mysteries of your soul
Cause it’s you I want to know
Cause it’s you I want to know
Cause it’s you I want to know
Track Name: My Old Friend
Hey there I remember you
You were just 18 at the Science Library in Providence
I liked you even then
Hey you, I wondered about you
But you’re so much better than I ever could have imagined
I’m on fire because of you

Chorus
And all of that time gone
When I knew you just as a friend
but now it’s so much more than that
And all of my mind blown
Who knew it’d be you to undo me, My old friend

Hey there, what you doing now,
Want a good reward for waiting until the time was right
Say, Let’s give thanks tonight

Hey there, everything is changed
But you’re no longer married to that girl so I can call you mine
boy you’re looking fine


chorus

Hey there, what you doing now
How about you come here
We should make up for lost time
Dear old friend of mine
Track Name: Don't You Think You Want To
Don’t you think want to, I think you want to?
Don’t you think you want to have my heart? My heart
Don’t you think you want to feel the inner places? Don’t you think you want to have some slowly?

It‘s not a race to feel the joy in darkness
Covered in your perfume

Don’t you think want to, I think you want to.
Don’t you think you want to, I think you want to.
Don’t you think you want to, I think you want to.

the sky has turned from white to blue
Came upon a midnight dream

Don’t you think want to, I think you want to
Track Name: Would You Care To Dance
You put on your boots
let’s go out to tonight
And you brush your hair
Tell me I’m looking fine

Tease me with secrets
And you sure can romance
Comfortable in your skin
You know how lucky I am

Chorus:
The party’s on, all our friends are there
But you’re so free, you don’t care
And then you take my hand and ask
Would you care to dance?

The smell of your neck
And your perfect kiss
the sound of your voice
The way that you say “YES!”
Track Name: Flowers in Springtime
Long delicious nights
My body is electric
The sweet and bursting smells
That draw me in your garden
You set my on heart on fire
You opened me again
You Flower in springtime again

Opening again
In this tiny beauty
And every flowers knows
The song within the pollen
The most creative stuff
Arrives in perfect time
Just like the flower in springtime again

Long delicious nights
My body is electric
The sweet and bursting smells
That draw me in your garden
You set my on heart on fire
You opened me again
You Flower in springtime again
Track Name: Legacy
We should have been the best of friends but all things end
And you and I
We justify one more night
And now it’s all fallen apart

The closer we get, to the airport
You withdraw
Time got away from us.
It was our fatal flaw

Chorus 1:
So come and be my lover tonight
For the last time
Everything turned out Unlike everything I planned
I will be your woman tonight
For the very last time
Everything I hope be all right
It will be all right

I wish the radio wouldn’t be so sad
Then I’d get mad
Head in the sand
your yellow room
you’re leaving soon
What will we do about it

Chorus 2:
So come and be my lover tonight
For the last time
Everything turned out unlike everything I planned
I will be your woman tonight
For the very last time
Everything will be I hope it’ll be all right
I hope I will be all right

You look at me,
sweet and sincere,
Please don’t disappear
Here at gate, B-Nine
Won't you write and call me
Track Name: How Did I Get Lucky?
Found a silver dollar
Met a millionaire
bet a winning pony
Won a double dare
How did I get lucky?
How did I get lucky?

Found a 4 leaf clover
Won a teddy bear
Since I saw your brown eyes
Nothing can compare
How did I get lucky?
How did I get lucky?

Never gonna bet
Never gonna bet
Never gonna bet against you
Never gonna bet
Never gonna bet
Never gonna bet against you

How did I get lucky?
How did I get lucky?

Found a broken horseshoe
Fixed it to my door
Now when you come knocking
I know what luck is for
Track Name: Open It Completely
Ne fait pas semblant, tu sais, tu sais mon amant, car c’est ta gentilesse.

Voler dans la nuit et puis 1’ouvrir mon amant, et puis l’ouvrir, complètement

Je vous verrai comme personne d'autre, tu es le seul pour moi

TRANSLATION:
Don’t pretend, you know, lover; it’s because of your kindness.
Fly into the night, Open it, completely

I will see you like no one else does
you are the only one for me
