Track Name: Call
High on a mountain
Over sound of a misty morning you can hear him
Clear more than crystal
Ringing over the heights of laughter even sadness

Sound of perfection
Singing through daylight
Sound of the sunset
Silencing night

Ties all abandoned
And you follow his call so surely never doubting
You never wonder
If the sound that you hear is real or an illusion
Sound of perfection
Singing through daylight
Sound of the sunset
Silencing night

Floating like a cloud
Rising slowly
Takes you to a land
No one sees yet
Anchored by a breeze
Seeking beauty
Taking you above, nearer, closer, nearer, closer, now

Then as you see him
There is nothing so bright
and you have been so blinded
Dance to his music
And you know that your life has never been so rounded

Sound of perfection
Singing through daylight
Sound of the sunset
Silencing night

Floating like a cloud
Rising slowly
Takes you to a land
No one sees yet
Anchored by a breeze
Seeking beauty
Taking you above, nearer closer, nearer closer, now
Track Name: Meniña Moça
The sun and moon and stars my love, they always sparkle in your eyes
Lighting up the night so bright like jewels in the sky
Come and sing this song with me
I'll wait down by the sea
Fill my empty thoughts with dreams
That speak of only you and me

You say that you’re not certain that your heart can count on me
That you’re afraid to toss your love away so carelessly
But if you look into my eyes
You’ll see with certainty
You’re the one in my eternity

Whenever there is sunrise
Or at night
When day
Turns out the light
If it’s dark
Or it’s bright
Forever I will sing to you

What can I do my love to make you change your mind and stay
What could I have said or done to make you feel this way
I never meant to make you cry
Now I wonder why
I only want to make you smile
Smile until the day I die

I’ll love you more and more and more each day
Until the end of time
So dry away those tears my love
And help me with this rhyme
Come and look into my eyes
You’ll see with certainty
You’re the one in my eternity

Whenever there is sunrise
Or at night
When day
Turns out the light
If it’s dark
Or it’s bright
Forever I will sing to you
Track Name: Connections
Something in the wind, the trees
The falling leaves
Something in the changing seasons
Makes me wonder

Something in a flash of light
That tears the night
When I hear the silence first
And then the thunder

Dewdrops glow
In the early morn
And I’m singing a lonely song at dawn
All the while that I am lost
I wonder why
My love you have tossed
In this burning and churning sad sea of love

Take me back
Don’t want to be alone
Don’t want to be the one that’s left there crying

Can’t you see
That we were meant to be
Always and forever one
There’s no denying
Track Name: Bluesette
Poor little, sad little, blue Bluesette
don’t you cry, don’t you fret
You can bet
one lucky day you'll awaken
and your blues will be forsaken
Some lucky day lovely love will come your way

Get set Bluesette
True love is coming
Your troubled heart soon will be humming
< humming >

Pretty little Bluesette
Mustn't be a mourner
Have you heard the news yet
Love is 'round the corner
Love wrapped in rainbows and tied with pink ribbons
To make your next springtime your gold wedding ring time
So dry your eyes, don’t you cry no more
Pretty good times are coming your way

Long as there’s love in your heart to share
Dear Bluesette, don't despair
Some blue boy is waiting just like you to
Find a someone to be true to
Two loving arms you can nestle in and stay
Track Name: Refuge
Dark as the night
What is that screaming?
I hear a sound inside my head
Am I just dreaming?

I’ve come undone
Can’t find the pieces
Until you put me back again
The hurt never ceases

Give me this chance, please to make this right
I need you my love to take me back tonight
Will you let me start again, replay my part
I wanna to find my refuge inside your heart

There will be no more divide,
‘cos I’m done with all that pride
Don’t you leave my side
Be my sanctuary
Be my refuge
Our love, it hasn’t died

Flight, or stay and fight
You are my shelter
No running helter-skelter now
Now that I’ve found you
Track Name: Almost Like Being in Love
When I woke up in the morning
Oh the sun was shining bright
I knew at once that everything
Was gonna be alright
I put away the sadness and I
opened up the gladness
Ready for a day I knew would
Be so filled with madness
And baby I was right
Yeah I sure was right
You know that I was right

What a day this has been!
What a rare mood I'm in!
Why, it's almost like being in love

There's a smile on my face
For the whole human race
Why, it's almost like being in love

All the music of life seems to be
Like a bell that is ringing for me
And from the way that I feel
When that bell starts to peal
I would swear I was falling
swear I was falling
It's almost like being in love
Track Name: I Only Have Eyes For You
Are the stars out tonight
I can’t tell if it's cloudy or bright
'Cos I only have eyes for you, dear

Now the moon may be high
But I can't see anything in the sky
I only have eyes for you

I don't know if I'm in a garden
Or on a crowded avenue

You are here, so am I
Maybe millions of people go by
But they all disappear from view
And I only have eyes for you

Are the stars out tonight
I can’t see any light
Is it bright
It’s so far out of my sight

Long as you are in my thoughts there’s
Nothing that can come between us
I see that everything just
Vanishes from sight

Is it cloudy or bright
Are the stars a-shining
In the sky my darling
Can't you see the light?

Are the stars out tonight
I can't tell if it's cloudy or bright
'Coz I only have eyes for you
Track Name: Watermelon Man
Hey, watermelon man!
Hey, watermelon man!
Bring me one that rattles when you lug it
One that's sweet and juicy when you plug it
Do you understand, watermelon man?

Hey, watermelon man!
Hey, watermelon man!
Hot and bothered, need a little cooling
When I hear your call I start to drooling
Do you understand, watermelon man?

Watermelon cool your head
They’re so sweet, and so cool, and so red
And so green, and so nice
They’ll cool you down, just like ice

Just take a chance, a glance
You'll see why
If you’re hot a lot or you’re dry
Just take a slice, twice
Eat your fill
Cool it down, yes it will

Hey, watermelon man!
Hey, watermelon man!
Hot and bothered, need a little cooling
When I hear your call I start to drooling
Do you understand, watermelon man?
