Rick Calhoun There is something compelling about this woman's voice. I fell in love the first time I heard her, several years ago. She's front and center here, along with some seductive percussion - I think the word is "transcendental". Favorite track: I will follow.

Track Name: Thin air
Been around the world
trying to find the new wave
but this soul, it couldn't save

I looked up and down
and I asked around
nothing seemed deserving of my faith

Give yourself to me
You don't have to be free

Now I'm outta luck
and it's me I trust
there's no help from you
and for this I'm certain

Now I'm kinda stuck
and I should give up
cause you don't hear my words
you're not there

Now I'm outta luck
and it's me I trust
there's no help from you
and for this I'm certain

Now I'm kinda stuck
and I should give up
cause all my prayers
go into thin air

I don't mind thinking for myself
I don't mind making my mistakes
Yes, eternity is looking good now
but I'd rather live in the now

Now I'm outta luck
and it's me I trust
there's no help from you
and for this I'm certain

Now I'm kinda stuck
and I should give up
cause you don't hear my words
you're not there

Now I'm outta luck
and it's me I trust
there's no help from you
and for this I'm certain

Now I'm kinda stuck
and I should give up
cause all my prayers
go into thin air
Track Name: A knack for these...
Like a silent bell
and a dim light
I am free in this trap
with no windows in sight
Lost my voice yelling, screaming out loud I
have a knack for these empty fulfilling(s)

The first time, you were nothing at all
just one more mine I should mind
not to step on
The second time, you had turned it on
and the flattery felt like it fit me so well
and the game went on
and the game went on
and the game went on and on and on ....

The third time, things were moving along
but your pleasant predisposition was no more
so I backed off but you said "no, no"
it would feel like abandonment
what you've been scared of all along
all along, along, along, along, on and on and on...

Like a silent bell
and a dim light
I am free in this trap
with no windows in sight
Lost my voice yelling, screaming out loud I
have a knack for these empty fulfilling(s)

The fourth time, I was faced with a choice
I could pretend to save your life
or run to save my own
I almost broke, you see I'm not so strong
but I managed to use every muscly and bone
so now I'm gone, gone, gone, gone, on and on and on...

Like a silent bell
and a dim light
I am free in this trap
with no windows in sight
Lost my voice yelling, screaming out loud I
have a knack for these empty fulfilling(s)
Track Name: Wings
I fly in the air
the sun shines above me
I fly in the air, the air

Tell me how
many times do I
have to look at you in the eyes
to see if you're really there
your mind is always someplace over there, I swear

You cut my wings they don't fly
the don't fly nowhere I go
You cut my wings they don't fly
the don't fly nowhere I go, far away

Some day you will see
that life is really better
it's better down here, down here
the twists and the turns
they add all the essence
they add everything that you see

You cut my wings they don't fly
the don't fly nowhere I go
You cut my wings they don't fly
the don't fly nowhere I go, far away

(spoken word in Greek)

You cut my wings they don't fly
the don't fly nowhere I go
You cut my wings they don't fly
the don't fly nowhere I go, far away
Track Name: I will follow
You are the first
and the last
the last thing that I see, ooh

My friends and family ask
why don't I take good care of me

Where you will lead I will follow
this heart has nowhere more to turn
oh, the bridges I have burned

Cause every path I discover
leads nowhere that I'd rather run
no not one, don't want anyone
anyone at all

Where you lead, I will follow
I will follow, I will follow
where you lead, I will follow
I will follow, I will follow

Where you take me, you can keep me
you're allowed the way you treat me
where you lead, I will follow
I will follow, I will follow

In darkest times I see your light
I just have to open my eyes don't look down
gotta see what's around
to see which way I go

Cause where you lead, I will follow
I will follow, I will follow
where you lead, I will follow
I will follow, I will follow

Where you take me, you can keep me
you're allowed the way you treat me
where you lead, I will follow
I will follow, I will follow
Track Name: Oh so gray
This pain that I feel deep inside
the darkest places of my heart
is something that I'm used to now
I'm not concerned with who and how

Tears covered with a laugh
a drink, a song to pave the path
of forgotten desires
desires...

Sun through the window wakes me
all of you are nothing but
a cloudy day that's oh, so gray
Sun through the window wakes me
all of you are nothing but
a cloudy day that's oh, so gray

I can't imagine what it would be
to stay here locked up, wanna be free
the clouds keep me in captivity
I need the sun to carry me
bring me to a different world
different dimension, don't want to go home
I want this dream to swallow me whole

This pain that I feel deep inside
the darkest places of my heart
is something that I'm used to now
I'm not concerned with who and how

Tears covered with a laugh
a drink, a song to pave the path
of forgotten desires
desires...

Sun through the window wakes me
all of you are nothing but
a cloudy day that's oh, so gray
Sun through the window wakes me
all of you are nothing but
a cloudy day that's oh, so gray
Track Name: Ghosts
Lights out the ghosts are coming out
one by one, one by one
it turns out I'm not so powerful
they have won, they have won
I swear I swear, I looked everywhere
I swear I swear

Step two, step two I try to remember
all the things you've said
they seem, they seem so far and distant
please don't be upset
I swear I swear, I looked everywhere
I swear I swear

I will turn on the lights
and I will make the ghosts, run away
and I will live every moment
and I will make it stay, make it stay
when the ghosts come out
no, I won't hide
won't be inside the closet
won't be under the bed
when the ghosts come
I will open wide
let it in, soak it in
let me feel instead
when the ghosts come out
no, I won't hide

The way I feel sometimes
I'm so confused, don't know why I do this
could be I'm just so used
to feeling bad and the skills I've never had
to fight it off, and the battle starts
but it never ends
but now I feel like

I will turn on the lights
and I will make the ghosts, run away
and I will live every moment
and I will make it stay, make it stay
when the ghosts come out
no, I won't hide
won't be inside the closet
won't be under the bed
when the ghosts come
I will open wide
let it in, soak it in
let me feel instead
when the ghosts come out
no, I won't hide
