i love to hear you sing and every word has meaning so why are you silent tonight? we used to talk for hours sitting among the flowers but now we just stare out the window you know the way you feel now love is much too real i can only help you along hen you finally told me that your heart was empty i think i already knew that everything was ending because our paths are bending apart now where do i turn? you know the way you feel now love is much too real i can only help you along you ask me to go and on my way out you shed one final tear one last tear for all of the years i thought we’d spend forever more you know the way you feel now love is much too real i can only help you along you know the way you feel now love is much too real i can only bring you down

i wonder if you’re sleeping there tonight and if you might be allright i wonder why i’m still missing you when those days are through but did you feel it too? even more than yesterday i hope tomorrow brings sunny days and warmth and all the songs the robin sings bells will chime and the air will carry me with swelling strings cos i’ll never fly away with broken wings i always thought that we could skate away until the day i heard you couldn’t stay though you know i wanted to see you again i couldn’t face you then to see the end how could i let you slip away? do you think that you might ever give me a chance someday? i hope i can tell you what’s in my heart before it starts to fall apart now every day feels like walking in the rain now you’re on that plane and only tears remain

Hiding Away 03:12
we went walking after dark watching lamps light in the park waiting for the stars to re-appear never speaking of what we know that soon you’ll have to go back to the world where you belong but do you think if we pretend that this day will never end all of our dreams will come true? riding the subways everywhere knowing you’d always be there safe from all the things we used to fear when i see you cry or sigh some awful sigh i know you’re hiding away some sad simple thing a bad memory will bring and won’t let you go but do you think if we pretend that this day will never end all of our dreams will come true you’ll remember that one day we all have to go away but till then i will stay with you and keep you company just think of what we’ll see sitting underneath the cherry tree

walking through the sand when you held my hand i would pretend that it would never end though it’s much too late to change our fate you should know that i loved you so and you are always on my mind cos you always treated me so kind was it because you feel the same way that i do? that when we’re together each moment seems brand new? and even now i don’t know how i could let you go without letting you know to make it clear that when you were here my heart was beating fast and when i think of the past you are always on my mind cos you always treated me so kind was it because you feel the same way that i do? that when we’re together each moment seems brand new? now i’m hoping that my feelings will reach you and you’ll tell me that you’ll always love me too
5.
i saw you staring at the starlight then it carried you away to a place i’ll never find you still i’ll try to find a way you told me that i shouldn’t worry but i know that’s just a lie cos when i look into your eyes now you know i’ll start to see you cry no, no, no i won’t let you go we could live inside a song dear one that goes on for so long maybe then we’d be together in a world where we belong

Kira-Kira 02:42
as i dream of days gone by the sun will turn its head to shine on you another day and dry the tears you shed the snow will settle on the ground and whisper through the trees but cold and dark are far away as you stare out at the sea do you think it’s true that when the morning dew turns into day all our dreams will fade away? there’s beauty in the rolling hills and in the turning tide but all those things just fade away when you run and hide every time i think like this i don’t know what to do and so i’ll lay my head to rest and dream my dreams of you
7.
Cartoons 02:58
i guess we’re through there’s nothing we can do say it isn’t true cos i still love you i could visit you we could watch cartoons i would stay awake to hear the breaths you’d take i know it’s over now but i don’t know how i said that i love you but you just laughed and said goodbye
8.
i fell in love with the words that you sang even if i could not understand i wanted you to sing them to me i wanted you to take my hand and at night when i hear your voice it echoes in my heart so true and you know i would give anything if i could spend one day with you and though my dreams may bring me to you the morning always takes me back when i feel the wind is blowing cold and my dreams are so far away i stare off into the ocean waves to try and see your face through the gray and though my dreams may bring me to you the morning always takes me back so if i tell you that i love you will you tell me you love me too?

September 03:23
say goodbye to our hopes and dreams say goodbye as they fall apart at the seams no, i never meant to see you cry and you can’t say i didn’t try fly away from the winter snow fly away to the places that you know and it felt like there was nothing i couldn’t do just as long as i could be with you if you only knew and if i cannot dream of you then how will our dreams come true? every day comes and goes every day the wall between us grows but it felt like there was nothing i couldn’t do just as long as i could be with you
10.
there was a time i thought i knew i would always be here with you night spent in summer watching the waves making memories we’d save sleeping underneath all the stars dreaming of a world that is ours sure as the daylight comes with the dawn i thought our love would carry on i never thought there’d come a day when all our love would fade away and so i gave my heart to you and all my dreams came true as time went by it became clear that you would not always be near and as the summer turned into fall i did not even know you at all so now when i think about you and the dreams we thought would come true i will remember the words you said next year summer will come again
11.
Rêve 02:53
i’m all alone in my room and you far away but when the falling snow speaks of you i know there’s sunshine behind the gray and in its golden light we will be waiting for the night when our dreams will bring us closer once again i think i loved you much too much i put my heart into your hands like a flower picked and set aside, without the sunshine, will it die? and if it comes to an end would you be happy just to pretend that everything will be okay?
12.
the air is quiet here today because the birds no longer sing your name and all the leaves have blown away so all the branches bow their heads in grief though our time has slipped away i’ll always think of all the things we’ve done and live in dreams of yesterday when i still believed that you were mine when i look into the hazy sky of blue i still think that i could be with you and everything is new like the flowers and the dew if you only knew
