Track Name: Slow Burn
Fast talkin slow burn
Hot lovin takes a cold turn

I been walkin along the edge
I been too close to the flame
You know the nights callin out my name
You know my mama told me not to do
Get lost in the cold dark city
But my heart it remained so true
The darkness to the pity

Fast talkin slow burn
Hot lovin takes a cold turn
Track Name: Contaminated
Verse 1:
Made a deal with Pilate;
30 silver pieces.
And he got his very own
Personal Jesus.

Verse 2:
He died for our sins.
That’s why He walked the Earth.
If He died for my sins,
He got His money’s worth.

Chorus:
It’s not my fault, you know.
Tried to tell Him.
I didn’t ask you to be born.
Tried to tell Him.
I didn’t ask you to be born.

Verse 3:
So now I’m the bad guy.
Well, here’s my defense.
Yeah, you might have got screwed.
You at least got kissed.

Verse 4:
He died for our sins.
That’s why He walked the Earth.
If He died for my sins,
He got His money’s worth.

Chorus:
It’s not my fault, you know.
Tried to tell Him.
I didn’t ask you to be born.
Tried to tell Him.
I didn’t ask you to be born.
Track Name: Wise Man
Have you figured it out
There is some doubt lingering
Till you've walked a mile in my shoes
Find out for yourself
You don't have to believe me
You don't have to receive anything from me

Wise man understand
Believing that you can

I completely have given in
With everything within me
I begin
You're my friend
I tell it to you straight

Wise man understand
Yes you can
Track Name: Back to the Dust
Back when E-
gypt in her glory
Building sphinx
and pyramids
Did they think
when they began
To make kings
Their dieties?
History
Is full of lies
So many crimes
And so much shame
History
is full of shadows
The gods themselves
have gone insane

[Chorus:]
Turn a page
It’s all the same
The book of fate
Can’t be explained
And when you
Die upon the wheel
You go back to
the dust again

When the Ro-
mans burned the towns
And raped the women
And made them slaves
Salted fields
killed all the men
Returned and won
the Caesar's praise
Did they know
what they had won,
And the mea-
sure of their fame?
Did they know
That they were pawns
In an old
Eternal game?

Turn a page
It’s all the same
The book of fate
Can’t be explained
And when you
Die upon the wheel
You go back to
the dust again

When the French
were trapped in splendor
And the pea-
sants starved for bread
When they built
the Queen a palace
Of the hun-
gry and the dead
Did they think
that they were better
Than the sor-
row and the pain?
Did they know
The guillotine
Waited at the end-
ing of their Reign?

Turn a page
It’s all the same
The book of fate
Can’t be explained
And when you
Die upon the wheel
You go back to
the dust again
Track Name: Obsession
You stand in disbelief
At the loving memories
That we share
But you don't care
I try to find my way in
Is that such a sin
I know where we began
Why did you run

Away from me, away from me
Can you not see, can you not see
My loving heart
Is there for you
We can see this through

All that time we took in Paris
The side-walk cafes
You were in such a playful mood that day
I will never forget what you said
The love we shared
The feelings laid bare
To this day you're my obsession
You can not escape
The power of my heart
All the longing, the longing oh

Away from me, away from me
Can you not see, can you not see
My loving heart
Is there for you
We can see this through

You're my obsession
Track Name: Secret Language of the Wind
In the dead of night
when the moon is just a crescent in the sky
and the leaves begin to move, you wonder why
there is a voice that speaks within
in the secret language of the wind

At the break of dawn
the morning sun will seem to pull the blue along
and everything you knew may turn out to be wrong
so you listen to the transcendental song
of the secret language of the wind

When the storm arrives
and you lie on stones your face up in the rain
and you wonder could this be the hurricane
and then the whisper of the water hits your skin
in the secret language of the wind

Listen to the sound
of the black tornado as it touches down
you will hear the cyclone fury that surrounds
and in the air there is a message there within
in the secret language of the wind....
Track Name: Only Time Will Tell
must it be farewell
only time will tell
only time will tell

will we know ourself
only time will tell
only time will tell

will we find the place
a place where we can live
and all can be forgiven

will it be forever
will we know whether
or not we can ever get there

can we survive
will love still be alive
and the life we share

was it true what we felt
only time will tell
only time will tell

will the ice ever melt
only time will tell
only time will tell

you and I have something special
something that transcends all fear
will we come to where we should be
will we ever make it here

are we from Paradise
to be forever expelled
and grace withheld

must it be farewell
only time will tell
only time will tell

will we know ourself
only time will tell
only time will tell
Track Name: Cold Wind
Cold Wind-Lyrics

Verse

It’s been hard to make ends meet
Been a long, long day now the kids are all asleep
Outside the little minds tell a story too
Of all our mysteries so tried and true

Chorus

I’m with you my friend
The lights are dim
We let it all begin
Outside the cold, cold wind

Verse

Night at the ball, strike twelve o’clock fall
We delve into the change of heart
Torn apart I can’t believe
We finally started down that path

Building up while it’s tearing down
Thin walls of light
Drowned out by hard cold sound

Chorus
Bridge
Violin Solo
Chorus
Track Name: The Unbearable Lightness of Blue
I fell into the sky
when I looked into your blue eyes
guess I never knew
the unbearable lightness of blue

I never guessed the true
what a love could do to you
didn't know that I could be
swept away by what I see

falling through my heart
out of control right from the start
didn't know that love could do
whatever it wanted to

lost inside your smile
I became just like a child
guess I never knew
the unbearable lightness of blue

how could I have seen
life could be just like a dream
didn't have a clue
the unbearable lightness of blue

you were standing there
where I was I don't know where
everything was gone but you
in the unbearable lightness of blue

I couldn't look away
you were all I felt that day
and now we are one made out of two
in blue
Track Name: Money Leads The World
Money leads the world

I’m searching for the treasure
So completely…

The story goes
Where your heart is…

All that money makes the world go round
And round and round and round

Money leads the world
Track Name: Your Smile
Your smile
Brightens up my days
Your smile
Chase all my blues away
(1)
In my wildest fantasies
I never thought
You would belong to me
But in reality
You are right by my side
So much joy
So much pride
(2)
It must have been your smile
That sparkle in your eyes
It must have been your smile
That made me realize
(3)
I couldn’t live without you
No, not another day
So I took the chance and asked you
Are you looking for romance

“Your Smile” Lyrics by Darlene P. © Jan 11, 2011
Track Name: Saint Margaret of the Park
Walking barefoot in the grass
tickling babies as she pass
mothers worry not at what she does
she is radiating love

She is what she is
nothing about her dark
she is everything
she is a soul apart
so very like an angel
like a work of art
Saint Margaret of the park

Laughing dancing in the sun
she brings joy to everyone
in the air the perfume of her
like a flower blooms
and fills the afternoon
then she is gone too soon

She is what she is
nothing about her dark
she is everything
she is a soul apart
so very like an angel
like a work of art
Saint Margaret of the park
