Track Name: Rise
I came to lay me down/In silence I shall sleep to dream of you and me and the freedom that we breathe/Through our wandering days and all the nights awake to the sounds of stars that slowly drift away/This life we chose to rise like fire to guide our way through the dark/We're travellers in time/We're writers of our dreams/There's so much more to life if only we believe/We're gatherers of flames/We're riders in the wind/There's so much more to life/As long as we believe/So come and put me up to the test of life/Race against the time/It’s an upward climb/So just hold on tight and swing with all your might/Now’s the time to shine and leave the past behind/We're travellers in time/Agile in our stride/There's so much more to life/So don't give up the fight/We're carriers of light/We're riders in the wind/One day we'll be free/So just trust in me
Track Name: 櫻桐 (Parting Blossoms)
Track Name: Tomorrow
How are we to keep on trying in a place where hope is fading?/What is left is what we have to share, to believe/When the night seems never-ending and the sky too far to reach/There is light within our hearts to share and to give/So don't give in, so don't give in, I will never let go/It doesn't matter if we're near or far/We are never apart/Tomorrow, tomorrow's another day and I pray/I pray there will never be/Another, another broken heart/Tomorrow is when the sun will rise again/How are we to keep on going when it seems like all is dying?/What is left is what we have to share and to grieve/When the hurt seems never-ending, seems like peace will never come/There is strength within our hearts to bring and to give
Track Name: One Force
Too many people pushing/Too many people shouting/Too many voices fighting in me/I'm trying to find some reasons/I'm trying to keep the volume/When I'm playing I play for keeps/She went too far/I've lost her/You could not be bothered/Lighten up and listen/Only takes a second/Fighting with one force inside me/I'm shouting with one voice inside me/I'm running with one breath inside me/Believing with one heart inside me/It's all the finger pointing/I think this isn't working/I can't make any sense of this place/I'm sick and tired of rituals/World War III's habitual/Where were you when you were replaced?/I pulled up front you're breaking/Don't know what you're thinking/I'm the queen of patience/Sit and wait for silence/I'm fighting with one force inside me/I'm shouting with one voice inside me/I'm running with one breath inside me/Believing with one heart inside me/Do you see this broken heart?/I'm reaching out but it's so hard/I'm afraid to take this remedy when I'm waiting for the tragedy/I’m pushing with one force inside me/I'm crying with one voice inside me/I'm charging with one breath inside me/I'm living with one goal inside me
Track Name: 櫻桐 (Acoustic)
Track Name: Shine (Acoustic)
You came to me when I was lost/Couldn't find where I belonged/You came along/You stopped my fears/Whispered words that make me strong/You held me tight throughout the highs and lows and complicated times/You stayed behind in my heart so I know that I can fly/I will shine for you/For everything that you have tried to pull me through/I will shine even when all lights have turned away from me/Deep inside, I know/I will shine for you/You came to me/Gave me resolve/So I'd find where I belong/You came to mind/You saved my soul so I'll leave the scars behind/I will shine for you/For every promise that you've kept and being true/Deep inside I know, I'll shine for you
Track Name: Take Me Away (Live)
So dark a sky I've stood in wait for rainbows to rise from shattered tears/I thought I saw your grace/Won't you come to me and tell me what should I believe/Enlight me, devour me, when all I see, has drawn out my soul and I'll give it all for another grant of mercy/Before the last rose weathers away, will you take me away today?/Take me away today/So dark a sky I've tried to reach for somebody hearing out for me/I thought I saw your face/Won't you come to me and tell me what should I believe
