Track Name: Traveller
Traveller

Read a letter on these pages
From a friend I haven’t seen in ages.
The earth has turned around
And life is upside down.
What has happened to those dreams
We had yesterday?

And the truth is
I am seeing the world
As a traveller.

Things are not the same
This side of yesterday.
Seems like there’s more pain;
Laughter is sweeter
Than the sugar cane
I lived in
Before

And the truth is
I am seeing the world
As a traveller.

If I could ask you just one question,
oh mother of mine,
does it ever stop?
Or does the pain
Go away with time?

I’m so far from home.
I’m so far from home.
Track Name: Table light
Table Light

Table light, I gave
to you my tale.
Though the fire dies!
Tears flow rough and new.

I went to town to see
a trusted friend of mine.
Gin, it poured - too fast -
Till soon I was blind.

Calm, my brother, calm;
Tears flow rough and new; the snow-
Outside it blows
But here I need you.

Know I did not fight,
For then I should have won!
Feeble on that night,
My mind was like a stone.

Breathe, my sister, breathe;
Your comfort is my guide.
The snow outside – it blows!
The fire brings us light.

Blue and black,
The skin was torn and tough.
Had I that night back,
Would I push him off?

Oh, my family tree,
Could daylight clear my mind?
When someone takes your trust,
They cannot take your life.
Track Name: All that I lose
All That I Lose

I can hear a downpour.
It’s breaking outside these walls.
Its fury cuts and then it busts, outside my door.

Can you feel the earth quake,
Or hear its mighty breath give out?
Oh, It rips, it turns, and then it fakes....death.

All that I lose I will win;
and all that I lost I will win.

Take me past the alley gate
And burn me up in these hills.
Oh I’m afraid to watch you break...again.

All that I lose I will win;
all that I lost I will win.

I’m scared that hope has found a home,
That it’s nestled deep inside my bones.
It takes, it eats, it tears and breaks... my crust away.

All that I lose I will win
And all that I lost I will win
And all that I lose I will win
Yeah, all that I lost I will win
