Track Name: Don't You (Forget About Me)
“Don’t You Forget About Me”

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ohh

Won't you come see about me?
I'll be alone, dancing you know it baby
Tell me your troubles and doubts
Giving me everything inside and out and

Love's strange so real in the dark
Think of the tender things that we were working on
Slow change may pull us apart
When the light gets into your heart, baby

Don't you, forget about me
Don't, don't, don't, don't
Don't you, forget about me

Will you stand above me?
Look my way, never love me
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down

Will you recognise me?
Call my name or walk on by
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down, down

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ohh

Don't you try or pretend
It's my feeling we'll win in the end
I won't harm you or touch your defenses
Vanity and security

Don't you forget about me
I'll be alone, dancing you know it baby
Going to take you apart
I'll put us back together at heart, baby

Don't you, forget about me
Don't, don't, don't, don't
Don't you, forget about me

As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
As you walk on by
Will you call my name
When you walk away?

Or will you walk away?
Will you walk on by?
Come on, call my name
Will you call my name?

I say
La la la
When you walk on by
And you call my name
Track Name: Grandmother Tongue
“Grandmother Tongue”

Your first Pacific flight
Will be your last.
Kiss your motherland goodbye
You’ll never be back.

Your husband won’t find you
In the home you had together.
You may love your in-laws
But even they tell you to “Desert!”

Grandmother tongue
You left in time
Before counterrevolution.
Grandmother tongue
In a world where
You don’t understand anyone.

Your children forgive your old ways
As they professionalize
Grandchildren follow your ways
As you shamanize.

Your husband won’t find you
In the home you had together.
You may still love him
But he will never come again.

Grandmother tongue
You left in time
Before counterrevolution.
Grandmother tongue
In a land where
You don’t understand anyone.
Anyone.


Grandmother tongue
You left in time
Before counterrevolution.
Grandmother tongue
In a world where
You don’t understand anyone.
Anyone.

Your first Pacific flight
Will be your last.
Kiss your motherland goodbye
You’ll never be back.

Your husband won’t find you
In the home you had together.
You may love your in-laws
But even they tell you to “Desert!”

Grandmother tongue
You left in time
Before counterrevolution
Grandmother tongue
In a land where
You don’t understand anyone.
Anyone.
Track Name: Random Rain
“Random Rain”

In the wettest of days
Amid the blur of city lights
(Walked) in the local cafe
Dried the days tears from my shoulder

Alone in a corner
Reading yesterday’s paper
Cold coffee in your hands
Waiting too long for your lover

If there’s anything I could say
To help you not feel afraid
How good solitude can feel
It’s the only thing that’s real.

Days like this
I live for the rain
Friends and lovers far from my embrace.

Your pride wears thin
As you begin to see the mess you’re in
“How many times,” you ask,
“Can this happen? Why so fast?”
Seeing you there I felt a little sad.

I approach the counter
You look up as I order
Ask the waitress for soya
For my favorite cuppa chai latte

Slipping my jacket off
I sit beside the window
Watching you as I watch the rain outside
Watching you try to hide

If there’s anything I could say
To help you not feel afraid
How good solitude can feel
It’s the only thing that’s real.

Days like this
I live for the rain
Friends and lovers far from my embrace.
Track Name: Attachments
“Attachments”

Je ne peux pas vivre
Je ne peux pas mourir
Pris entre la vie et la mort
Deux vies, deux amours

Your untouchable young face
I cradled your confidence and faith
Too much I just didn’t know

I remain on earth without you
Are you looking down or up from under?
Do I follow you through to the sea?
Communing each week in the valley

The earth, the moon and the sun
All the things that we envisioned
Now all that world is gone
All that time you didn’t let on
The end had come, you were done

I remain on earth without you
Are you looking down or up from under?
Do I follow you through to the sea?
Communing each week in the valley

I cannot live
I cannot die
Caught between two worlds
Life after life after life afterlife afterlife afterlife…

I remain on earth without you
Are you looking down or up from under?
Do I follow you through to the sea?
Communing each week in the valley
(repeat)
Track Name: Dream Child
“Dream Child”

Waited so long in my solitary hell
Dragged my cup against this iron cell
Heard you stepping faintly through the wall
Dream Child

Couldn’t lift my face off the ground
I was just as sad as a hound
Then I saw the softest glow come ‘round
Dream Child

Be mine
Dream Child
Your smile
Turns night into day
All I am hangs on you
Don’t leave
You’ve got to pull through

Squabbles less than petty fall away
All that matters is you’re here to stay
When you’re ready you just come my way
Dream Child

Be mine
Dream Child
Your smile
Turns night into day
All I am hangs on you
Don’t leave
You’ve got to pull through
Track Name: Ai Oboete Imasuka (Do You Remember Love?)
“Ai Oboete Imasuka (Do You Remember Love?)”
Translation of lyrics from Japanese:

Right now, I hear your voice
Saying, “Come here to me,”
Just when it seemed loneliness had beaten me.
Right now, I see you
Walking over to me.
I close my eyes and wait for you to come.

Till yesterday, it seemed filled only with tears,
But now my heart is…

Do you remember the time when our eyes first met?
Do you remember the time when our hands first touched?
That was the very first time I set out on the journey of love.
I Love You So

Right now, I can feel your gaze
Though you’re not here with me.
And in my body a warmth begins to glow.
Right now, I believe in your love
So won’t you please
Watch over me from so far away?

Till yesterday it seemed filled only with tears.
Now the world is…

Do you remember the time when our eyes first met?
Do you remember the time when our hands first touched?
That was the very first time I set out on the journey of love.
I Love You So

I’m not alone anymore
Now that you’re here with me
Track Name: High Maintenance Man (Ricochet)
“High Maintenance Man (Ricochet)”

My thoughts ricochet
As you have your say
My thoughts ricochet
As you have your way

I always think, can’t act
A heart attack of lack
Something is stopping me
Some demons over me

You explode inside
No longer hold your pride
No time to feel the pain
My neck in your hands

My thoughts ricochet
As you have your say
My thoughts ricochet
As you have your way

I hear no sirens call
As I’m against the wall
It’s hand-to-hand combat
There is no turning back
Track Name: Alone Again Or
"Alone Again Or"

Yeah,
I said it's alright
I won't forget
All the times I've waited patiently for you
And you'll do just what you choose to do.
And I will be alone again tonight, my dear.

Yeah,
I heard a funny thing
Somebody said to me
You could be in love with almost everyone
I think people are the greatest fun
And I will be alone again tonight, my dear.
