Track Name: At The End Of The Day
Wish that I had no fear
Sometimes I try to hide from the deepest love
I’m calling out why can’t you hear
I was a man who was just passing by

At the end of the day
I’m going to sing you this song
As the memories go on
At the end of the day

Sit on a couch, get warm by fire
The candle lights are glowing still
Three in the morning, the night is dark
Now let me start to tell a story

At the end of the day
Can you play me that song?
Before the memories fade
At the end of the day

Wish that I had no fear
Sometimes I try to hide from the deepest love
I’m calling out why can’t you hear
I was a man who was just passing by
I was a man who was just passing by
I am the one who wants to be loved
Track Name: Lost In The Traffic Lights
Sing that song,
To keep this dream floating
Now I'm standing here
But still missing this place somehow
We've got lost in the traffic lights
We'll never know, it just comes and goes
But the morning comes

The end is near
But the night is still dark
Just touch my hand
Before the morning comes
We've got lost in the traffic lights
Just hold my hand, to feel our existence
But the morning comes

The nights of the summer,
The sounds of the city,
I was just watching the people crossing streets
Don't fade away, the glowing lights
I wish everything real was gone,
And left me alone
But the night has gone

But the night has gone
The night has gone
That's all we know
The night has gone
That's all I know
All alone
Track Name: Snowbirds
Just like white snow has no reason,
It always comes and goes without reason

Just like the sun shines from that window,
You're the light that asks me out of this room

I was just sitting on a fence
I thought I could do anything I want
I was just looking over the world
I thought I could go anywhere I want

Just like raindrops soak into parched ground,
I was drenched in the sweetness of hope and fear

Just like the light at the end of a tunnel,
Hope you are standing at the end of this road

I was just sitting on a fence
I thought I could do anything I want
I was just looking over the world
I thought I could go anywhere I want

Can you feel it?
The north wind brings the beautiful season
Can you hear it?
I was just listening to the snowbirds singing outside

Where are we now? Where will we go?
The colors of the sky seem strange today
Where are we now? Where will we go?
The snowbirds don’t even know where to go
Track Name: Scent Of Lavender
I don’t know what is real, what is the dream you are seeing
No tears coming down, but I just want to see your dream

I will never see the things you have in your sight
Maybe they are just forgettable things, but I want to know

I got far away
It is hard to believe
Here is, silence of the night,
The scent of lavender, without your voice

I don’t know what is real, what is the dream I'm seeing
I just want time to pass by, but I know

I will never feel the things you feel in your heart
We are far away, but we can swing to the same song

I got far away
It is hard to believe
Here is, silence of the night,
The scent of lavender, without you
Track Name: The Night Fog
I was passing through the deepest woods
I was listening to the sound sequence of the wheels
In the night train, in the empty compartment,
Outside the window, there was mist covering the night

I was wondering where were we last night
I was thinking about the words I should have said to you
In the night train, in the empty compartment,
Outside the window, there was mist covering the night

The night fog, take me away from here
But I know my hope is just to be mystified
The night fog, cast her in the night
But I know my dream is just to be mystified
I was writing a letter to my dear
The words I can't speak in front of you
Tore up the pages that I filled with words
And threw into the night,
And they're gone in the mist

I was watching the river reflect the moon
I was listening to the sound of the rain and the wind
In the night train, in the empty compartment,
Outside the window, there was mist covering the night

I was wondering where were we last night
I was thinking about the words I should have said to you
In the night train, in the empty compartment,
Outside the window, there was mist covering the night

The night fog, take me away from here
But I know my hope is just to be mystified
The night fog, cast her in the night
But I know my dream is just to be mystified
What I can do is just write about love
With words I can't speak in front of you
Tore up the pages that I filled with words
And threw into the night,
And they’re gone in the mist
Track Name: 13 Inches Monitor
Don’t let me be a poor and helpless one
Don’t make me feel like a shivering scared one

What was right?
Now I'm left with this 13 inches monitor
Drink a glass of water, turn off the light,
Drift into the dream

I saw their smile which I’ve never seen before
I saw their words which I’ve never heard from them

What’s going on?
The world seems strange through this 13 inches monitor
Drink a glass of water, turn off the light,
Drift into the dream

What was right?
Now I'm left with this 13 inches monitor
Drink a glass of water, turn off the light
Drift into the dream

Why do you feel like connected to the world?
Why do I feel like connected to your sight?
Track Name: Head In The Clouds
I was just getting out from that back door
To the rain outside, to the cold night

The pride ate you up, and it froze up all your heart
Are you feeling these raindrops? Do you feel it?

I could never really be grown up
In that way, some people told me
I could never really understand
What I'm doing wrong, like you said
You always know you’re right

I could never really be grown up
In that way, some people told me
I could never really be understood
From those people trying to teach me the way
You always know you’re right

But I’m not going to follow your way
The fear grinds you up, and now you’re gone
Track Name: To My Heart's Content
I’ve kept passing by, casting down my eyes
Tried to pretend I don’t know anything

But I realized,
To my heart’s content,
Just like a new born child

I realized,
To my heart’s content,
Just like years ago

Although I knew that there's a vernal hope outside
Stuck in the trench I made, shaking before the leap

But I realized,
To my heart’s content,
Just like a new born child

I realized,
To my heart’s content,
Just like years ago
Track Name: Reborn Rapture
Countless stains on the wall start to peel off
Colors of the void, they're faint and reckless

Shine, just breaking off
Sounds, just leaking out

Oh dear, why is it over?
Oh dear, when is it over?

Revival of recognition, It’s taking over
Afterglow of penetration, that’s what we’re waiting for

Shine, just breaking off
Sounds, just leaking out

Oh dear, why is it over?
Oh dear, when is it over?
Track Name: October
Walking through woodlands, all yellow
Little early to lift up the collar
Faded old pictures ended up with misnomer

Swinging with the mildest zephyr
Too early for Indian summer
While the west wind blows I’ve got to go

I saw the light,
Golden light,
That was the sunlight of rapture
Makes me blind until it gets dark

I saw the light,
Golden light,
I was in the silence and couldn't close my eyes

Breathe in the air of sweet October
Melting into sweet surrender
Thinking of how are you feeling in this sweet season

Time squeezes me in the sense of wonder
In the golden field, I saw a gossamer
Under the pale blue sky, I’ve got to go

I saw the light,
Golden light,
That was the sunlight of rapture
Makes me blind until it gets dark

I saw the light,
Golden light,
I was in the silence and couldn't close my eyes

Since my love starts to get deeper
Deciduous trees start to turn to faint red
Hope to keep sleeping in this mellow daydream longer

Autumn leaves are whirling tender
The golden shine makes me a stranger
Before the moon starts to glow I’ve got to go
