1. Cover me with snow

 

I'm gonna lay this body down

Cover me with snow

Chill my burning flesh, it's scolding

Decency and pride

 

Cold war is over

Opening my pores

The flame each pore is breathing in

Is coming from my core

 

Sweet and gentle sleepiness

Coming from the cold

Come back faithful punishment

Cover me with snow

Cover me with snow

 

I'm gonna lay this body down

Cover me with snow

Walk these hours barefoot

Let the snowflakes be my gown

 

My fingers have no colors

Crystals in my hair

I feel so beautiful

My thoughts have turned to stone

 

Sweet and gentle sleepiness

Coming from the cold

Come back faithful punishment

Cover me with snow

Cover me with snow

 

It does for me what I could not

Even when I tried

It soothes my mind and leaves behind

All the times I've lied

 

I'm gonna lay this body down

Cover me with snow

Fall asleep with crystals

Falling silent from above

2. Daylight Is Short In Fall

 

Daylight is short in fall

Leaves turn to gold

Autumn and winter will enter in time

To colour a tired soul

Give me faith this year

To find and to know

Living is only what runs through an open heart

Living is letting go

 

So many words already spoken

Trying to explain

After sunny days come rain

Nothing ever stays the same

The grace in change

A gentle face

That looks upon a mending heart

As time passes by

 

Daylight is short in fall

Leaves turn to gold

Autumn and winter will enter in time

To colour a tired soul

Give me faith this year

To find and to know

That living is only what runs through an open heart

Living is letting go

3. Do You Know My Love

 

Do you know my love for you

How it always brings me back to you

It's the colour of my blood

Helps me always stay with God

Do you know my love for you

That your daughter’s dearest love is you

 

Do you know my love for you

How it always brings me back to you

It is hard growing up

When it means giving up

The greatest world that's holding only you

The greatest world that's holding only you

 

I've been looking for you ever since

Looking for your eyes in every prince

I know I can't give up

Knowing that a heart can't stop

From longing for the love I got from you

From longing for the love I got from you

 

I know I can't give up, knowing that

a heart can't stop

when beating with the love

I have for you

it's beating with the love

I have for you

4. Giant body

 

My giant body in this fine world of thin lines and elegance

With quick words behaved laughs

Tears that shine from hurts that are sore but sweet to soothe

My body knows just how to get

Greedy as it is

Greedy as it is

 

Kisses bread and speedy cars

Loud talks and clumsy hugs

I never, I never learned to wait

 

They mourn so sweet

They work so hard

They talk so slim

They walk so right

They love so proper

Hate so fine

If I could be like that

 

If I could cry like that

If I could laugh like that

If I could shrink, if I could put this body down

If I could chill my burning breast and turn myself around

This giant body, loud and rude

Is harbouring a storm

Of useless thoughts

Of petty moods

Blowing me all down

5. I've tried and I've waited

 

I've tried and I've waited so long

They say patience and will

Make you strong

But I've wanted and wished for it

Longed for it prayed for it;

The scent of the innocent.

 

Each time

I walked through that door

Hoping to see

What I'm for

I ironed my shirt and I polished my shoes

And I kissed all the feet of the world

 

Show me the times when I fail

Give me the strength to be frail

To ask and receive

To trust when in need

When I've tried and I've waited so long

 

I've tried and I've waited

So long

6. If only

 

As I was walking down third avenue

As I was feeling too much like a woman

As my back rose strong and straight

As a thought popped up I stopped

 

Looked around myself

 

To remember the size of this world

To remember I just want to be

Daddy's, Daddy's little girl

 

If only you could see his hands

If only you could know the corner of his arms

If only you could hear his voice when he said;

If there were only you and me

 

You little girl, you little girl

 

If only there were only us

And I would never grow up

If only I could hear that voice again

I'd stay the same

7. Powerless

 

I may be powerless

I may be all what you despise

I may not know my own best

I may not justify

All what I have said or

All what I have done

Or all that I posses

 

You're right, most probably

Suspecting me of insobriety

Swimming in a sea of vast indulgence

I know just how to get

Everything my hands

Can get of what you ban

I'm everything you damn

 

You're right, you're right most probably

I am, I am guilty of inability

To feel any kind of responsibility

I have no conscience

Speak only nonsense as you hear

I sure am powerless

Can't have what you posses

 

If you want me to say I am sorry

I'll do that, but those are your words

8. Say goodbye to what is gone

 

Stay the night

Let me feel my life has been all right

I have seen something today

And it left me so afraid

I have to give up all beliefs and I

 

Don't know where to stand

Where to turn

Who I thought I've been for all these years

Disappeared before my eyes

The memories where lies

And now the truth comes daring me, can I

 

Turn around

Break the bond

Say goodbye

To what is gone

Can I, Can I

Turn around

Break the bond

Say goodbye to what is gone

 

Will you stay with me

When I turn

Will you let me go without return

Can I trust I know the truth

Can I trust without a proof

I am to give up all beliefs can I

 

Turn around

Break the bond

Say goodbye

To what is gone

Can I, Can I

Turn around

Break the bond

Say goodbye to what is gone

9. The Art Of How To Fall

 

Yesterday I fell in love

And then again today

And the day before yesterday

And all the days before

I fall in love with everyone

And every time I fall

I fall in every way there is

With every little kiss

 

But today I fell in love again

Like I never did before

Deeper than I ever did

Could not have fallen more

Who it was I fell for

I really can't recall

I simply want to truly know

The art of how to fall

 

I am falling

Again and again

I am falling

 

The sweetness of a Hershey kiss

Is nothing to a fall

To lose is everything there is

To have another ball

It's nothing less than heavens bliss

To know a moment's time

That all there is to know is

In the art of how to fall

 

I am falling

Again and again

I am falling

10. Virgin's Lullaby

 

It's sinfully late and I'm sinfully drunk

I've sinfully spoken a whole lot of junk

But I'm sinfully happy with things as they are

I haven't yet fallen asleep

 

And I didn't do it, I really did not

Go off to lose the one thing I've got;

The idea that I have, whatever that means

The chastity belt of a queen

 

And that ain't easy

With all these men everywhere

And all the love in the air

No that ain't easy

 

I'm sure gonna know all the day after lows

With pains and ills and neurotic chills

But I'm perfectly safe, thank God I am home

Thank God I'll be waking up alone

 

And that ain't easy

When there are so many men

And I love all of them

No that ain't easy

With all these men everywhere

And all the love in the air

 

Yes it's hopelessly late and

I'm hopelessly gone

Thank God I'll be waking up

Thank God I'll be waking up

At least I'll be waking up alone

11. Worriless

She comes to me, when i can’t sleep

She whispers so sweetly my name

When I can’t sleep

When I can’t sleep

 

I hear her voice

The smell of her hair

The drop of a tear

She comes to me

When i can’t sleep

 

I close my eyes and if I try to fall asleep

She comes to me

We og to all the thousand worlds we ran into

When we were girls

 

Worriless, worriless

Where will we og

Worriless, how did we know

 

I close my eyes and if I try to fall asleep, she comes with me

We og to the thousand worlds we ran into when we were girls

 

Worriless, worriless

Where will we og

Worriless, how coud we know

Worriless, worriless

Where will we og

Worriless

How could we know
