“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

“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.

Random Rain 04:26
“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.

Attachments 03:48
“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)

Dream Child 02:59
“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

“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

“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

"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.
