Your heart is wearing a furcoat, its feet bear icicle marks; your mind is sunbathing madly, its hands are waving at sharks. The buttons are hard to get rid of the toes tend to wander astray; glasses are just a distraction, fingers are fish on a tray. Don’t you wish to break it and burn all the pieces that never fail to daunt you. Your heart is painting a blizzard, its eyes like grateful sunbeams; your mind is walking a tightrope, its ears too far, so it seems. Don’t you wish to break it and burn all the pieces that never fail to daunt you.

Your face 01:30
It's true that I have seen your face before, it's true that I have held your hand before, but it's new that I may kiss your lips and more... You have never heard of me, I guess, and you have long forgotten us, I guess, but if You could be the only one this mess can't beat... It's true that I have seen your face.

Don’t wait too long in that eerie night, with a glass in your hand, silent, despite the glass being empty and the Moon being full. Don’t think too long of the crossroads missed, with a map in your mind of girls never kissed. The heart may be heavy, and the Moon still full, pour your heart into that glass in your hand, drink it slowly, don’t even try to pretend that you could apply some filter, the percentage of full Moon’s too high. Don’t wait too long in that eerie night, with a glass in your hand, silent, despite the glass being empty, the heart being drunk, and the Moon always full.

Chaos and order* (free) 01:26
Aim to be good, that’s better than great; aim to be more, not deteriorate. Aim to grow, it’s the best form of winning; aim to journey the deepest within; and dare to walk the path dividing chaos and order. Aim to listen a hundred per cent; aim to say what you really meant. Aim to act when your conscience is on; aim to stop what the dragon feeds on. Dare to walk the path dividing chaos and order

The Wave 02:22
Your voice is near, that ancient new, it cannot disappear in the Big Old Blue waves. Your voice is clear, that ancient true, and now we can hear the Big Old Blue waves. Your voice is here, the ancient You, deep, strong and dear Big Old Blue Wave

The monster 01:04
The monster opened his mouth, he was shaking with genuine fear, for he had apparently never been to a dentist so near. The dentist opened his eyes, he was smiling from ear to ear, for he had admittedly never had a nightmare so dear.

She took off her glasses, I put down my glass… some sweet temptation came over us. She asked me a question, I heard a request, a warm invitation from inside my chest. Then we moved and felt we could stay still so long… So we stayed to freeze and melt. She put on her glasses, I refilled my glass, a year’s sensations came over us. She asked me no question, I heard no request, nor sweet hesitation. That’s all for the best. Then we moved and felt we couldn’t stay still. So long.. So we moved to freeze and melt.

Returned 02:52
The Moon is gone, dreams have been replaced in your eyes. The spell is gone, words have been reformed in your mouth. The tune is gone, notes have been removed from your sighs. The light is gone, stones have been released from your doubts. The gone is here, love shall be returned to the skies.

You know, she had a thousand faces, and he was in love with each one of them. Now, that he's no longer at the races, once in a while he recalls some of them. like when she was wrapped up in her drawing, when she argued with her hair; when she felt a letter pausing, when she found the blue unfair. when she tamed the ukelele, when she heard some crazy line; when she was dazed in the alley, when she waltzed over with wine. You see, she had a thousand faces, and he was in love with each one of them. Now, that he's no longer at the races, once in a while he recalls some of them. like when she came across a spider, when she failed to sneeze; when she turned into a writer, when she played her vocal knees. when she grimaced for the Sun, when she picked a lucky shirt; when she let the horses run, when she refused to have dessert. You see, she had a thousand faces, and he was in love with each one of them. Now, that he's no longer at the races, once in a while he recalls some of them. like when she dropped a glass of laughter, when she created a new dish; when she read about the rafter, when she opened a you wish. when she bumped into a kitten, when she could nonchalantly guess; when she wept the daylight hidden, when she silently said yes. You know, she had a thousand faces, and he was in love with each one of them. Now, that she dreams of different places, he's still in love with every single one of them.

There are places You haven't left, there are times when I see You at those places You haven't left from moving pictures to still... There are traces of You I discover again and I feel You in those traces I rediscover I'm choosing moments to spill... from yesterday's Moon into today's.
11.
Do You sleep enough, my dear and your dreams are made of feather? Do You wake up with the Sun in synchronized beaming? Do You then embrace the moments, the joyous and the broken? Do You go to bed serene, grateful for what's been? Do You live enough, my dear, and your days are made of silver?
