Perfect Love 04:44
A wild bird flies onward through the night crossing lands unknown And should it pass through all the trials of distant flight In the end its' instinct brings it home. What is the reason for this clear unblemished sky? I never dreamed that all my searching might end in a love so pure it's never going to die.

Whose heart is this, whose heart is this 
that beats just next to mine, that beats just next to mine I know now You're the one who's always watching over me and if I love You, don’t blame me, 
When you're the one who came to set me free.
 I know now that Yours is the perfect love I've always waited for And if I search through all the stars far above 
I don't believe I'll find anything more. 
Whose heart is this, whose heart is this 
that beats just next to mine, that beats just next to mine
 So long in darkness did I walk but love still drew me on I wandered far within your realm of ancient light 
listening to the distance for Your song. I know now that Yours is the perfect love I've always waited for And if I search through all the stars far above I don't believe I'll find anyone more beautiful than You.

No Distance 04:42
You said no distance is too great No time too long to wait If you’re sure your love is true I will always want to be Part of your reality Let the memory survive Till the moment I arrive In the world behind your eyes Until I realise That you are me too When I see the stars so high above I’m reminded of Your love and I wonder where you are..... You are all I want to be, I’ll never let You go You’re everything to me I will always want to be Part of your reality Let the memory survive Till the moment I arrive In the world behind your eyes Until I realise That you are me too You are all I want to be, I’ll never let You go You’re everything to me You are all I want to be, I’ll never let You go You’re everything to me I’m waiting here so patiently, for when You look at me, You take my thoughts and set my spirit free I don’t think I imagined it, I heard you speak to me with words of love and sacred mystery Hold me tight, I fear the way ahead may take me from my place, Blissful here in Your embrace. Even in the darkest night When all hope seems lost from sight Of ever seeing my love again I know A time will come when all will be resolved And all my love returned A thousand fold, A thousand fold

Remember Me 05:14
Why are we talking, careful lest the spell we've wrought be broken Words all too often mar the magic of a love unspoken Where am I walking, with no sky above, no earth beneath my feet as I stumble, through this world you’ve made, so full of love? What is the reason for this flight of love, these stars above that change with the seasons? Do you remember me? I don't believe I'll ever forget you If You could only see how long I searched for someone just like You A soft voice in the silence when I'm sorrowful or feeling lonely A shoulder I can cry on with assurance that you love me only A child in those joyful moments when I want to play and tease you Someone to accept my gifts with joy when i just want to please you Like dancers in the sunlight, hand in hand we run so light across the world, Love in the moonlight, sharing secrets as the stars unfurl You are my sunset to sadness, let the softness of your night enfold me, I'm so glad that in the darkness You are here to hold me See how the angels wing protects us when we least expect it, tears fall forgotten, shining in the silver moon reflected. Do you remember me? I don't believe I'll ever forget you If You could only see how long I searched for someone just like You

Stone stares at my face, two paces to the left, two right Though stone meets my outstretched hand, this is where my heart must flame again. Here I sit before my cell wall, seeing far off faces, in far off places, painting secret dreams of times to come On the mountain peak he dared, straining in the burning air, Firing arrows, flaming hair, suns a'falling everywhere Hou Yi shot the suns, shot the suns. Freedom, how they loved their freedom Crying for Salvation But now it’s lost again For Freedom cries the heart For Freedom cries the heart For Freedom, all across the world I still see a sea of faces Shining with a new hope Of freedom Filling all Tiananmen that day. A thousand hands in protest raised A thousand stars that briefly blazed Do you remember anyone Who marched there in that scarlet sun? Hou Yi shot the suns, shot the suns Hou Yi, Hou Yi, Hou Yi, Hou Yi Hou Yi shot the suns, shot the suns Freedom, how they loved their freedom How they cherished freedom All across the world For Freedom cries the heart For Freedom cries the heart For Freedom, all across the world

In this land my spirit is ever free, Iron chains can never hold me long You think that you are free, but there’s a world that i know to be more real than this dream and we all belong there. In this land my spirit is ever free, Iron chains can never hold me long You think that you are free, but there’s a world that i know to be more real than this dream and we all belong there. I don’t regret my 12 year fight, we fought you well, we had the right But could not win, for we were new To you harsh world Walk with me, but cast a veil before my eyes, filled with tears by a sight too sad too see Take my bleeding land and, make it whole again, green like the time when our world was filled with trees. In this land my spirit is ever free, Iron chains can never hold me long You think that you are free, but there’s a world that i know to be more real than this dream and we all belong there. In this land my spirit is ever free, Iron chains can never hold me long You think that you are free, but there’s a world that i know to be more real than this dream and we all belong there. The chant began and built a sound That spread far up through and around, The flowing streams and gum tree glades into the mountains far away. Where warriors dead spirits walk In the bush, across the hills Amidst the memories and ghosts With my secret war my dreams are filled. A song that echoed on and on drew me back where I belong i lay there wounded in a trance But in the dreamtime world I danced. Walk with me, but cast a veil before my eyes, filled with tears by a sight too sad too see Take my bleeding land and, make it whole again, green like the time when our world was filled with trees.

A Dream 05:04
Once I had dream in which all of the alphabet ordered themselves in a book, with an ancient and mystical look Then I turned around and walked into that hidden place where I’d not yet dared to look, surprised at the courage it took. If you ever see me alone Don’t rest easy Cause it means I’m far from my home. I heard that you’re everywhere, I know that theory But ‘till I feel Your hand in my hair I remain weary Wanna always be with You Wanna stay close to You Never wanna go anywhere if you aren’t there too Wanna stay right by You Never wanna leave you behind Never wanna go any if you’re not there. If I ever want to see through the dark glass clearly Into the world full of light, Its centre incredibly bright Do I even want to see through the dark glass clearly Into that world full of light, there waits a wonderful sight If you ever see me alone, just rest easy Cause it means I’m dreaming of home I see now, you’re everywhere It’s not just theory I can feel your hand in my hair If I ever want to see through the dark glass clearly……. Wanna always be with You Wanna stay close to You Never wanna go anywhere if you aren’t there too Wanna stay right by You Never wanna leave you behind Never wanna go any if you’re not there

Lake Gardens 03:33
Today I went to your house In the hope to see you there I searched but could not find You, but something in the air Took my heart and lifted me into that special place Where I could feel Your warm embrace Every room contained a memory so painful yet so sweet I could not help but linger in the hope that we would meet If I close my eyes I see that smile that time cannot erase And I can feel Your endless Grace Why did it take so long to see That I’m in You and You’re in me I looked up to the stairway where You often used to wait And pretend that You were busy or that someone else was late If I could just recall exactly how you said my name Everything would be the same again Why did it take so long to see That I’m in You and You’re in me Why did it take so long to see That I’m in You and You’re in me That I’m in You and You’re in me That I’m in You and You’re in me

Sitting on the broken steps of the earth waking up the sleeping sky It took a long time getting here, I dont know why Looking out on a strange and troubled world Talking to the burning sea I hope you're going to stay nearby to comfort me I remember the first promise ever in the world In the beginning all around was magic shining like a sea of pearls You opened new doorways, smiling on the world I beheld You in the heart of dreams This time the magic will never die. Ch With the return of the magic to this world, We will run to you, and find hope again With the return of the magic to this world, We will love you, and shine again Gazing out on a wild and stormy sea There's a man in a boat and I wish it was me Risking everything in order to be free You opened, new doorways, shining on the world I beheld you in the heart of dreams this time the magic will never die With the return of the magic to this world, We can run to you, and find hope again With the return of the magic to this world, We can love you, and shine again You opened, new doorways, shining on the world I beheld you in the heart of dreams this time the magic will never die With the return of the magic to this world, We can run to you, and find hope again With the return of the magic to this world, We can love you, and shine again
