Track Name: When You Go Away
When You Go Away

Though the green grass decks the heather,
And the birds sing all the day,
There will be no summer weather,
After you have gone away.
When I look into your eyes,
I shall thrill with sharpest pain;
Thinking that beneath the skies,
I may never look again.

When you go away, my friend,
When you say your last good-bye,
Then the summer time will end,
And the winter will be nigh.

You will feel a moment's sorrow
I shall feel a lasting grief;
You forgetting on the morrow
I, to mourn with no relief.
When we say the last, sad words,
And you are no longer near,
All the winds, and all the birds,
Can not keep the summer here.

When you go away, my friend,
When you say your last good-bye,
Then the summer time will end,
And the winter will be nigh.

Life will lose it's full completeness,
Lose it, not for you, but me;
All the beauty and the sweetness
Earth can hold, I shall not see.

When you go away, my friend,
When you say your last good-bye,
Then the summer time will end,
And the winter will be nigh.
Track Name: Remember Me
Remember Me

If on my grave the summer grass were growing,
Or heedless winter winds across it blowing,
Through joyous June, or desolate December,
How long, sweetheart, how long would you remember

For brightest eyes would open to the summer,
And sweetest smiles would greet the sweet new-comer,
And on young lips grow kisses for the taking,
When all the summer buds to bloom are breaking

Would you remember
Remember me
Would you remember
...
Would you remember
Remember me
Would you remember
me

To the dim land where sad-eyed ghosts walk only,
Where lips are cold, and waiting hearts are lonely,
I would not call you from your youth’s warm blisses,
Fill up your glass and crown it with new kisses

Would you remember
Remember me
Would you remember
...
Would you remember
Remember me
Would you remember
me

Too gay in June you might be to regret me,
And living lips might woo you to forget me;
But ah, sweetheart, I think you would remember
When winds were weary in your life’s December

Would you remember
Remember me
Would you remember
...
Would you remember
Remember me
Would you remember
me
Track Name: Two Shadows
Two Shadows

I saw … two shadows walking
Yet I was there alone
Two shadows … softly drifting
As I walked on my own

Two shadows … in the sunlight
Two shadows there with me
As I turned … round to see them
One mine, the other she

But she was … not there with me
Not there, not by my side
Yet still … two shadows lingered
Though long ago she died

I saw … two shadows walking
Upon that lovely day
I saw … one softly drifting
Then slowly fade away
Track Name: Love Will Wane
Love Will Wane

When your love begins to wane,
Spare me from the cruel pain
Of all speech that tells me so -
Spare me words, for I shall know,

By the arms that still enfold
But have lost their clinging hold,
And, too willing, let me go,
I shall know, love, I shall know.

Love will wane. But I shall know,
If you do not tell me so.
Know it, tho' you smile and say,
That you love me more each day.

Bitter will the knowledge be,
Bitterer than death to me.
Yet, it will come to me some day,
For it is sad world's way.

Make no vows - vows cannot bind
Changing hearts of wayward mind.
Men grow weary of a bliss
Passionate and fond as this.

Love will wane. But I shall know,
If you do not tell me so.
Know it, tho' you smile and say,
That you love me more each day.

Know it by the inner sight
That forever sees aright.
Words could not but increase my woe,
And without them, I shall know.

Love will wane. But I shall know,
If you do not tell me so.
Know it, tho' you smile and say,
That you love me more each day.
Track Name: Surrender
Surrender

I was wise, I never gave
What they teach a girl to save,
But I wished myself his slave
When my love was gone.

I was all alone at night
When my love came home.
What thought of wrong or right
When my love came home?

The nights were dark and cold,
When my love was gone.
And life was hard to hold
When my love was gone.

I flung the door back wide
And I pulled my love inside;
There was no more shame or pride
When my love came home.

The nights were dark and cold,
When my love was gone.
And life was hard to hold
When my love was gone.
Track Name: Day Is Done
Day Is Done

The day's done and the darkness
Falls from the wings of Night
As a feather's wafted downward
From an eagle in his flight
The day is done
The day is gone

I see the lights of the village
Gleam through the rain and mist
A feeling of sadness covers me
And my soul cannot resist
The day is done
The day is gone

And I don't know why
And I don't know why ...

A feeling of sadness and longing,
That is not akin to pain,
And resembles sorrow only
As the mist resembles the rain
The day is done
The day is gone

And I don't know why
And I don't know why ...
But the day is done
But the day is gone
Track Name: We Have Long Been Lovers
We Have Long Been Lovers

Your eyes drink of me
Love makes them shine
Your eyes that lean
So close to mine

We have long been lovers
We know the range
Of each other's moods
And how they change

But when we look
At each other so
Then we feel
How little we know

We have long been lovers
We know the range
Of each other's moods
And how they change

The spirit eludes us
Timid and free
Can I ever know you
Or you know me?

We have long been lovers
We know the range
Of each other's moods
And how they change
Track Name: Isle Of Innisfree
Isle Of Innisfree

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,

And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,

And live alone in the bee-loud glade.


I will arise and go now,
and go to Innisfree,

I will arise and go now,
to the Isle of Innisfree,


And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,

Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;

There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,

And evening full of the linnet's wings.


I will arise and go now,
and go to Innisfree,

I will arise and go now,
to the Isle of Innisfree,


I will arise and go now, for always night and day

I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;

While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,

I hear it in the deep heart's core.

I will arise and go now,
and go to Innisfree,

I will arise and go now,
to the Isle of Innisfree,

Track Name: My Colors
My Colors

Life is dark and lonely,
I feel I'm the only
One standing all alone
In a world … I atone

The world’s so black
I just can't go back
To when it was so blue
And love … was so true

All my colors have gone
But it hasn't been long
Since the day was so bright
And the world … full of light

But happiness abounded
And I felt so grounded
Where has it gone?
And how … did it go wrong?

I see life all out there
As I sit here ‘n’ stare
It's passing me by
And I … don't know why
Track Name: The Riot
The Riot

You may think my life is quiet.
I find it full of change,
An ever-varied diet,
As piquant as 'tis strange.

Wild thoughts are always flying,
Like sparks across my brain,
Now flashing out, now dying,
To kindle soon again.

One broad, perpetual riot
Enfolds me night and day.
You think my life is quiet?
You don't know what you say.

Fine fancies set me thrilling,
And subtle monsters creep
Before my sight unwilling:
They even haunt my sleep.

Wild thoughts are always flying,
Like sparks across my brain,
Now flashing out, now dying,
To kindle soon again.

One broad, perpetual riot
Enfolds me night and day.
You think my life is quiet?
You don't know what you say.
Track Name: Do Not Love Too Long
Do Not Love Too Long

Sweetheart, do not love too long
I loved long and long
And grew to be out of fashion
Like an old song

All through the years of our youth
Neither could have known
Their own thought from the other's
We were so much at one

But O, in a minute he changed
O do not love too long
Or you will grow out of fashion
Like an old song
Track Name: New Love And Old
New Love And Old

In my heart the old love
Struggled with the new;
It was ghostly waking
All night through.

Dear things, kind things,
That my old love said,
Ranged themselves reproachfully
Round my bed.

But I could not heed them,
For I seemed to see
The eyes of my new love
Fixed on me.

Old love, old love,
How can I be true?
Shall I be faithless to myself
Or to you?
