Track Name: Never Known
NEVER SAID
ALMOST TOLD
EVEN THEN
LATER
NEVER KNOWN

OUT OF WANTING
OUT OF HUNGER
HELD IN SECRET
LATER
NEVER KNOWN

IN A DIFFERENT CITY
IN ANOTHER TIME
WHAT A DIFFERENT STORY IT WOULD BE
NEVER KNOWN

LEFT TO BREAK
LEFT TO ROAM
LEAVING EMPTY
LATER
NEVER KNOWN

THOUGHT AND ACTION
DUST AND MOTION
FADE A SECRET
LATER
NEVER KNOWN

IT WAS NEVER SPOKEN
NEVER GIVEN BREATH
STILL THE SOUL WILL WONDER WHAT HAD BEEN
NEVER KNOWN

Track Name: In Those Eyes Resides My Heart
AND WHEN HIS EYES FLASHED
LIKE LOOKING IN A MIRROR
I COULD REMEMBER
HE KNEW IT AFTER ALL

AND WHEN HE TOLD ME
THE WARMTH OF HIM BESIDE ME
WHAT A RUSH OF THOUGHT
TO KNOW HE KNEW IT AFTER ALL

AND IN HIS LOOK
THE MEMORY OF A LIGHTER TIME
A TIME OF SPRING AND COLOR
LEADING TO THE FALL

AND IN THOSE EYES
RESIDES MY HEART
AND IN THOSE EYES
RESIDES MY HEART

AND WHEN HIS EYES FLASHED
LIKE LOOKING IN A MIRROR
THE ME I'D FORGOTTEN
REFLECTED BACK SO DEEP

AND I REMEMBERED
THE TIME BEFORE THE DISTANCE
WHEN THERE WAS BEAUTY
WE DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TO SPEAK

AND IN HIS LOOK
THE MEMORY OF WHO WE HAD BEEN
SUDDEN REVELATION
SUMMONED UP AGAIN

AND IN THOSE EYES
RESIDES MY HEART
AND IN THOSE EYES
RESIDES MY HEART

AND IN HIS LOOK
THE MEMORY OF A LIGHTER TIME
A TIME OF SPRING AND COLOR
LEADING TO THE FALL

AND IN THOSE EYES
RESIDES MY HEART
AND IN THOSE EYES
RESIDES MY HEART

Track Name: Where He Walked
I WALK WHERE HE WALKED
LOOKING FOR THE TRACES
THAT HE HAD BEEN HERE BY THE SHORE

I WALK WHERE HE WALKED
THE FADING LIGHT AT DUSK
UNEVEN LINE OF LANE TO EXPLORE

HOW
HOW THEN TO FIND
LOCATE A SIGNAL
SOMETHING TO COMFORT AND SOOTHE

TIME
THE ELEMENTS EVADE
THE FEAR I COULD FORGET
THE MEMORY OF THE WAY HE WOULD MOVE


I WALK WHERE HE WALKED
HAND TO THE HORIZON
SENTINEL OF WHAT HAD BEEN KNOWN

I WALKED WHERE HE WALKED
SEASONS SLOWLY PASSING
MUTED SENSE WITHOUT HIM ALONE

HOW
HOW THEN TO FIND
LOCATE A SIGNAL
SOMETHING TO COMFORT AND SOOTHE

TIME
THE ELEMENTS EVADE
THE FEAR I COULD FORGET
THE MEMORY OF THE WAY HE WOULD MOVE

I WALKED WHERE HE WALKED
A SINGLE SET OF FOOTSTEPS
NEON SURGE OF EVENING ARRIVES

I WALK WHERE HE WALKED
LOOKING FOR THE TRACES
WHILE HE HAD BEEN RIGHT HERE BY MY SIDE

I WALK WHERE HE WALKED

Track Name: The Beauty of a Spring Night
THE BEAUTY OF A SPRING NIGHT
UNCOMPROMISED
TREES BURSTING WHITE
ME SWEET AGAINST YOUR SIDE

NATURAL SENSATION
THE BEAUTY OF A SPRING NIGHT

SOFT AND PEARLY MIDNIGHT
MOON SO LUSH
YOU MOVE EVEN CLOSER
NIGHTBIRDS HUSH

GENTLE BREEZE EMBRACE US
THE BEAUTY OF A SPRING NIGHT

JASMINE 'ROUND THE WINDOW
WHERE WE SLEEP
YOU DRAW ME EVEN NEARER
HOLD ME DEEP

NATURE SEEMS TO BLESS US
THE BEAUTY OF A SPRING NIGHT

IT MIGHT BE MAY
EVEN LATE APRIL
KISS ME AGAIN...
AND AGAIN...
and again

Track Name: Into The Light
AND WHEN THERE WAS NOTHING LEFT TO BE SAID
SUDDENLY A STILLNESS SO SERENE
THEN THE SUN BROKE THROUGH THE CLOUDS
AND THE WORLD WAS AGLOW
EVERYTHING HARMONIOUS, SUPREME

NOW IT IS THE TIME
WHEN YOU KNOW IT IS RIGHT
A MAN, A WOMAN AND... INTO THE LIGHT

AND WHEN THERE WAS NOTHING LEFT TO DEFEND,
SUDDENLY A COURSE BEYOND COMPARE
AND THE WAY WAS CLEARLY SHOWN
BY THE RIVER AND TREES
AND THE ROAD AN ANSWER TO A PRAYER

NOW IT IS THE TIME
WHEN YOU KNOW IT IS RIGHT
A MAN, A WOMAN AND... INTO THE LIGHT

AND WHEN THERE WAS ALL THE REST TO BE SHARED
TENDERLY THE SADNESS FELL ASIDE
AND THE VIEW WAS GRAND AND VAST
OF THE MOUNTAINS AND STREAM
LEADING TOWARDS A PEACE BEYOND DIVINE

NOW IT IS THE TIME
WHEN YOU KNOW IT IS RIGHT
A MAN, A WOMAN AND... INTO THE LIGHT
