Track Name: Encantamiento
vocal sound voice
Track Name: Paper Planes
Start out in the morning before it starts to rain
I have saved up sticky papers for my paper aeroplane
I will climb the tallest mountain wave down to the cars
The fingers in the engine that wind around the bars
The wheels will soon start spinning as the tyres fit the road
The tiny paper plane will fly into the cars window

Drive along the road with each others company
The tiny paper plane he is striving to be free
He is winding down the window with his tiny paper wing
It is only half ajar but enough to catch the wind
And sing and sing la la la la la etc

Flying to the city the rain was falling fast
The people in there raincoats were sitting on the grass
There tiny bird was falling she never could survive
The people in there raincoats had turned around there eyes,
there tiny paper plane that they hoped one day would bring
There freedom for to ride upon its paper wing and sing la la ala la etc

The people turned around and asked the reason why 100 paper planes were falling from the sky
They landed in the factories into the streets they moored
The people saw the reason and quickly climbed aboard
They sat upon the paper and flapped the tissue fast they flew out of the city there freedom came at last to sing la la la la etc

Track Name: Loosing Game
There ain’t no doubt that its time for me to go,
Even though I still love you so,
I keep on moving so the days don’t seem so long
There ain’t no doubt that my love for you is strong…very strong

You telephoned to say you won’t be back,
I built a home made of kings and Queens and jacks
Your mother said it wasn’t very nice
It made you think about it once or twice…once or twice

I’m so tired of feeling lonely; I’m so tired of feeling blue,
Lay your head on my shoulder, take away these lonesome blues.

Your name it will always be with me now,
Although it’s useless it’s useless anyhow
So I will say my last farewell
It didn’t work and I knew that you could tell…you could tell

So take good care along the old highway
There’s nothing more I can really say
Except I’ll always think about your name
I wont forget I played a loosing game …loosing game

I’m so tired of feeling lonely; I’m so tired of feeling blue,
Lay your head on my shoulder, take away these lonesome blues.

Though time has flown and we went our different ways
I caught your eye at a Central Park café
It seems today you are a stranger to me now
What can I say except I played a loosing game…loosing game

There ain’t no doubt that its time for me to go,
Even though I still love you so,
Except I’ll always think about your name
I wont forget that I played a loosing game…loosing game
Track Name: I will be with You
I will be with you forever and a day
I will be with you come what may
I can’t stop loving you
Couldn’t if I tried
I will be with you
Until the heavens fall from the sky

You will never be lonely
I’m always in your heart
Till the stars stop shining
We will never grow apart
I can’t stop loving you
Because we are one
I will be with you
Until the sky is lit up by the sun

I will be with you
There’s nothing to fear
I will guide you from your star to here
I won’t stop loving you
Should all the seas run dry
I will be with you
Always and forever until I die

I will catch you if you should ever fall
If I should lose you your name I would call
And I will be with you when my day is done
I will be with you as we head out for the sun
I will be with you forever and all time
I will be with you
I will be yours and you will be mine
Track Name: Ragamufin Child
Tiny Orphan of the street
Your shallow eyes and your dirty feet
Little raga-muffin child
With baggy socks and fading smile
With your dirty nose and your clothes of second hand
Your mother brought from the market last Sunday

Broken toys they are always stuffed with rags
Sticky sweets in paper bags
You are walking home with a tarnished spoon
A broken cup and a gas balloon

City puddles filled with rain
You have only cracks to ease your pain
Gather speed and join as one
Along the gutters waters run
With your garbage news
And your prints of second hand
The headlines gave out in the guttered weeds
For all to see

Drink your cup the one that is chipped
Squint your eyes and you can make them fit
Through the eyes of a city clown
Lifted up when he is broken down
He kicks the ground with his city boots
And falls asleep in his city boots
And he goes home.
Solo piano
Through the eyes of a city clown
Lifted up when he is broken down
He kicks the ground with his city boots
And falls asleep in his city boots
And he goes home.
Track Name: The Manavu
If you leave me it would break my heart
Love is why we should never part
And if you should ever say goodbye
Then you know that I would surely die

For you are my very soul
Our love will grow and grow
Our love will grow

For you are a rose to me
Deep in the garden we will always be
Our love will grow

And I know I have said it a hundred ways
But you know I just can’t help it love is here to stay
And when we dance the Manavu
We reach the heights of what love can do
Our love will grow

If you leave me it would break my heart
Love is why we should never part
And if you should ever say goodbye
Then you know that I would surely die
Our love has grown
Track Name: Ancient Lands
No more will your army’s patrol our lands
No more will your oil be drilled from our sands

No more will your soldiers use there force
No more will our sons & daughters be blown off course

Chorus
It’s no good you know war is a sin
It’s no good you see you will never win

No more will our children pay the price
No more will our country be used like dice

Chorus

No more will weak politicians speak as fools
No more will your governments break the rules

Chorus

One day your armies will leave our lands
Till then the blood of all children will always be on your hands

Chorus

No more will your armies patrol our lands
No more will your oil be drilled from our sands.

One day your army’s will leave our lands
Till then the blood of all children will always be on your hands

Always be on your hands
Always be on your hands
Always be on your hands
