Track Name: Welcome
Track Name: Spring
All the way on my journey so far
I was searching for your essence
Now I know you were here all the time
But I could never catch your presence

Join me now, there is no worry
I'm your present, you're my fairy
The path we walk is neverending
All we have is the beginning

I will show you trees and mountains
Brooks and rivers, mystic fountains
Plant your seeds, this field is ours
Show me spring, burst into flowers

Hold my hands, I will take you home
Here you'll find your peace, here you will find your soil
We will show this world the truth
That lies in our hearts, the unity of me and you
Track Name: Safe Here
I hear them calling
But they can't reach me here
I'm in my shrine
In the forest I've known for long

Why would anyone ask me to leave
Oh can't they see
That I have reached my home, my peace,
It is caressing me

So I will do my best
To explore all mystery
Of this world of beauty
Until I reach you pretty

There is so much
I haven't done before but as I see
I have found the source of all
Divine vitality

What happened to my senses
They have become so clear
Like I could see Creation
In the light of an eye

Why would anyone ask me to leave
Oh can't they see
That I have reached my home, my peace,
It is caressing me

And I will follow my heart on this journey
Wherever it may lead me
I believe you will be there
at the place we're meant to meet
Track Name: The Tavern
We had a very rough winter that year,
The village was covered with snow,
I still remember the hard work of all men
Trying to clear the roads,
And although frozen through,
we filled the tavern with laughter and joy
At the end of the day

Drink some wine and forget your troubles
Drink more wine and leave all your tears
Cause we are here together and we will
Sing the songs of sweet memories
Laughing at the worries we carry
In the arms of maidens we marry
There's no grief inside our hearts
But pride of what we give our sons
This world of ours, the land we tilled
And all the faith our fathers built
We tell them all the tales of our people
The truth we know: your heart is your temple
Sail along the waves of the ocean
Let the north wind set you in motion
Taste the freedom, seize the day
Don't let it go, live it your way

So they sung, the brave ones
Simple man, but still, they were heroes to us
The passion they have put into everydays life
And their togetherness.. it led them out even from the darkest days
Some of us still remember, there is always hope for the better
As for me, it still brings peace to my heart
As the cold wind whispers the echoes of their songs in this wintry night
Track Name: Tragedy's Eyes
It's you, hiding in the shadows
Seeking life
It's you, banished by the living
A wicked strife
And you, trapped inside the mirror
You're breathing lies
Cause you are looking at your people
Through tragedy's eyes
Track Name: Serenity Rise
Feel my blazing heart
Let the breeze kiss your finest art
Already near
Do you see you're painting me
Oh with you it all will come I need you here

See the Sun go down
Do you feel me, I'm all around
Already here
My song is how I'm painting you
Oh with me it all begins for you too
Track Name: Traveller
I woke up to a fresh new morning, I could hardly move my limbs
A cold winter breeze touched my face, I shivered
A new day, a new beginning, so I took the few I had,
And I was back on the road again.
I've been travelling for long, seen many miracles,
The mysteries of the ocean's deep, the cloud seizing mountaintops,
The ruins of worlds passed away, and the masterpiece of blooming cultures.

Wherever I walked, life escorted me, wearing different masks every time,
And once in a while I was shown her mysteries, all the cunning games full of riddles,
Covered by secrets leading to simplicity, I have found the key to solve the puzzles of the way ahead
With every step, I left something behind, but I've taken many with me,
My bag is full of memories, each one picked carefully by me, so that I can have them with me all the time.
They seem to build me up. They paint a picture of a person.
Almost like the one I want to become, closer and closer. But the painting is still not finished.
Only for today, for today will it be, as I'll wake up tomorrow again.

I wanted to stop today, again. Sometimes I don't feel like changing anymore.
Perhaps I should rest, find peace for a while,
as long as peace embraces me with gentle arms, before loneliness welcomes.
Sometimes it traps me, and I want to avoid feeling bad. But then it's already bad.
I learned to head for the good itself, and wake up like this every morning.
I'll have a long day again, so it's time
It's time to depart, this world still has treasures unknown.
Track Name: Time
Time is weaving
It's silvery web
Outside it's realm
You think we're dead

What if you died
What if you could
You'll understand
I know you would

That we built time
We keep to it
To hide the things
We can't live with

But this moment
Soon you'll see
It's all we have
It's all we need
Track Name: Farewell
