Track Name: Lost Road to Heaven
There is a harmony to all that I see
An unopened window to eternity
Still kept bolted shut by a fear of the dark
A fear for things that have yet to be

There is a map that keeps record of the song
The keys from divinity, untouched so long
They're enfolded deep in the veils of the sea
Now could it be that to free them was wrong?

For they are our
Road to heaven, lost forever
Our only chance to catch a fleeing swan
A stream of sorrow, dream unbidden
Just an unremembered feather drifting in the sea

Your love unfolded seven oceans to me
There's three made of glass, three made of melody
And we saved the last for our midnights alone
They were my window, my map and my key

Love, this is our
Road to heaven, lost forever
Our only chance to catch a fleeing swan
A stream of sorrow, dream unbidden
Just an unremembered feather drifting in the sea

But I never threw my anchor when I could
I feared, and inevitably
The keys were lost, engulfed by frost
Wrenched from my fingers
Gone, our

Road to heaven, lost forever
Our only chance to catch a fleeing swan
A stream of sorrow, dream unbidden
Just an unremembered feather drifting further
Every moment

Road to heaven, lost together
Our chance is gone, the swan has flown away
A stream that longs to be a river
Just an unremembered feather drifting in the sea
Track Name: From a Windchime to Its Long-Lost Owner
where the robins flew
late last summer, eggshell-blue
ripped asunder, call me too
softly call me back to where you lay

asleep in dew
dreaming of the answer to
why the truth is never true
why the winter's colder everyday

I hope you're free
how far westward lies the sea?
tell me, do you dream of me,
nameless tune forever-left-behind?

why do I sing
when my world is shattering
when I've broken everything
are these tears or am I only blind?

where's that winding war
by the tide beyond the shore
I have tried to try before
but I was so blinded by the sun

you tell me for-
ever now for never more
will I bear what once I bore
have you thought the glass might hide the gun?

I know you're free
have you gone beyond the sea?
I still hear you call to me
Even though you'll never find me now

And still I sing
for our summer, for our spring
for a world that's shattering
till I fade, till I've forgotten how
Track Name: Sparrows by the Door
Singer 1 (Girl): The baby sparrows sing into the stormy sky
They will never see a tree before they die
Here in a window by the door so far from home
The baby sparrows dream of learning how to fly

I heard a tale that our home
Stands where a forest stood
Mum, tell me where that forest went
I never understood

Sometimes I wonder how it used to be before
Why do the sparrows build their nests beside our door
I hear them singing of a forest from the past
Where is their home, the home they lost forever more?

Singer 2 (Sparrow): We built our nests high in the trees
Thinking that they'd remain
Then in a flash, you with your saws
Tore them from vein to vein

Sometimes I miss the way it used to be before
When we built our nests above the forest floor
We once knew joy, the shift of leaves across the past
But at your hands our secret forest lives no more

1: I wish I dream into a stormy sky (2: It's far away)
That the sparrows by the door will learn to fly (The home I won't return to)
But in this city, in this broken, treeless world (This hell is where I'll stay)
Oh will they ever see a tree before they die? (Until the day I die)

1: Their only chance, we took away, forever more.
Track Name: High Spirit
No way
No way to know
Fate's what you want it to be
Bend the wind, don't follow

Don't say, no
Don't say you'll just let it go
Fate's what you read from its signs
Bend the wind and

You will be right where you're meant to be

Fire, thunder, lightning
This euphoria of the sky, my true-born
flier! Stars igniting
The sunrise in your eyes
The highest

Fire, thunder, lightning
This euphoria is your birthright, true-born
flier! Stars igniting
Arcadia in your eyes
The highest spirit

Don't say, no
Don't say you'll just let it go
Fate's what you read from its signs
In the thunder

You will be right where you're meant to be

Fire, thunder, lightning (lightning)
This euphoria of the sky, my true-born
flier! Stars igniting (igniting)
The sunrise in your eyes
The highest

Fire, thunder, lightning (lightning)
This euphoria is your birthright, true-born
flier! Stars igniting (igniting)
Arcadia in your eyes
The highest spirit

Take the wind don't take any burdens with you
Take the wind you'll never forget this feeling
Take the wind don't take any burdens with you or you'll fall
Entrust it with your heart and soul and spirit

Storm grey burns the light away,
Where dreams are lost and reasons are found
But chase the silver anyway
Into the caves of midnight, caves of starlight
From the ground

Rainstorms, new beginnings (you're my love)
Don't let go yet, touch the sky, my true-born (you're my heart)
Flier stars igniting (you're my wings)
The sunrise in your eyes
The highest

Rainfall, thunder, lightning
Don't you dare forfeit your birthright, true-born
flier! Lights are writing
Your story in your eyes
The highest spirit

Fire, thunder, lightning
This euphoria is your birthright, true-born
flier! Stars igniting
The future in your eyes
The highest

Fire, thunder, lightning
This euphoria is your life, my true-born
flier! Lights are writing
Arcadia in your eyes
The highest spirit

Forever
My flier
Of thunder
High spirit
Track Name: You Are You
You're a blessing, you are you
You are someone's light
You're a wish that someone had
Each time she cried
You're an angel, you're the sky
You're the joy that you deny
And there's nothing, nothing that can
Change that now

You're a blessing, you are you
You are someone's light
You're a wish that someone had
Each time she cried
You're an angel, you're the sky
You're the joy that you deny
And there's nothing, nothing that can
Change that now

I watch you walk without a light
Hopeless, lost, tangled in the night
Is it that someone rained on your show?
Grief can be sharp as a knife, I know
But tell me, why do you hurt yourself
And tell me, who left these scars
You say your sky is black and dead
But in your eyes, I see the stars

You're a blessing, you are you
You are someone's light
You're a wish that someone had
Each time she cried
You're an angel, you're the sky
You're the joy that you deny
And there's nothing truer,
Don't you know?

You're not nothing! you are you
Let them tell their lies
In this world, you are the world
In someone's eyes
Don't you say it's not deserved
You're the axis of their love
And there's nothing, nothing that can
Change that now

There may be questions the world will not answer
And there may be pain you don't understand
But till you've known pain, then you haven't lived and
You haven't known, don't
Say you're worth nothing
Some would give the world for you
You have your flaws but you're no mistake
Take a deep breath, and forget all you've heard

And look up above
It's the sky you love

Can't you
See your starlight?

My dear, please be my light
Oh my dear, it's still the night
Don't think you are any less
Than wonderful

You're a blessing, you are you
You are someone's light
You're a wish that someone had
Each time she cried
You're an angel, you're the sky
You're the joy that you deny
And there's nothing, nothing that can
Change that

Angel of the skies,
Let them tell their lies
Don't you know that you are heaven
In my eyes
Don't you say it's not deserved
You're the axis of my love
And there's nothing, nothing that can
Change my mind
