Track Name: Magical cynical (single edition)
Morning breaks in the warmest place

Always luck choose the opposite lane

But we are rather Ok


The more that we try is the more that we find we can't get inside

We don't give it up as the sun is still high


You may think is silly I hope you feel fine that magical cynical way

Though everything flows I swear We will prevail


I've done enough, now please put your arms down

Let me go home and I'll lend you my crown

Till the end of time

It all will be great
It all will be great
As I wait you smiling from a silvery old fashioned frame

You may think it's silly I'm sure you still smile that magical cynical way
Though everything flows yes I swear they'll fade away

Oh dear, Oh dear Oh!

I'll be so kind I'll show
I'll be so kind I'll show
Track Name: You and I (alternate version)
Well, I smile
for you and I would feel alone on the top of the world
and anytime,anywhere would feel the same
Now I wonder
Am I at the beggining
or the very end
of anytime, anywhere
I know That midnight stroke
was only a joke,
Just to make me laugh
Yes I did laugh so much


Now please smile
for you know you and I would feel alone on the top of the world
Your midnight breeze passed me by
It was so cool…
I could hit you so strongly…
No I wouldn’t do you harm
And I’d wake up with no stone in my heart
So grab my hands
Grab my hands and pray
“Oh blood don’t spread,
Please run through me again”


You know I could breathe happily into a suitcase
But you know It would be better if you turned the light on
I know you were only trying to look be kind
Please let my heart start beating again, and again


But actually I know I should not care that much
for I'm sure you could easily undo it again and again

How long will you treat me this way

Track Name: A long hereafter (alternate mix)
A LONG HEREAFTER

I might have been haunted by the moon
To get glum
But nothing could make me bring down my brightest song
Though I’d loved before several times
Had I know I’d be awaiting so long just to wish you a long hereafter on your own
I wouldn’t have been so kind
On your own

Feels like I’ve been always watching you
Well I don’t
But I caress you from time to time when you are off guard

I’ve found calm before a couple of times
But it’s so sad it won’t take me so long. Would you wish me a long hereafter on my own?
I shouldn’t have been so kind
On my own
And it all feels so smooth ,once it’s far gone
On my own
There is no need to go nowhere
On my own

But nothing would keep me ‘round
To unfold you out
To pull that gloom out of your eyes
To soothe you down
We are on our own

Someone watching
Late at home
Maybe all those sparkling sounds will sigh for good
