Wind 04:42
Here comes the wind from the Northwest bringing clouds, bringing rain You'll never know how the day is going to end And in the night you hear it shout outside your house It speaks to you: “come with me open the window, let me in” I'm going to show the world I'm going to change you forever I'm going to show you the pain I'm going to change you forever Ok Here comes the wind from the Northwest bringing clouds, bringing rain Don't walk away, stay with me Let the rain fall in your head Bedtime childhood memories then hearing you made me afraid I'm going to show the world I'm going to change you forever I'm going to show you the pain I'm going to change you forever Ok

Winterland 07:43
Winter came by surprise in the middle of summer Our walnut tree froze in the snow Now a year has gone by in Winterland and I can’t remember the taste of the nuts it used to give and the color of the leaves changing with the seasons Birds sit on the tree and they always sing: “Is this all there is?” Winter came by surprise in the middle of summer I saw you walking outside wondering why is the time taking its time in Winterland Why can’t we recall the taste of the Birds sit on the tree and they always sing: “Is this all there is?”

The Day 05:52
Another day has gone through the door and I stay here and clean where he once stood on It’s harder for me to let it go than it is for you You come and go You forget and I remember how the day touched my knee I always feel alone when days are gone. The silence in this place is hanging ‘round the air and it’s so loud sometimes I cannot sleep wondering how You come and go You forget and I remember how the day touched my knee And it changed me

Interlude II 02:54
5.
All of a sudden I am hearing you instead of seeing you and all of a sudden I am seeing you for the first time Take my old eyes and throw them away I can’t believe how many years I’ve wasted All of a sudden I am falling in love and all of a sudden I am seeing someone new in the mirror too Take my old eyes and throw them away I can’t believe how many years I’ve wasted All of a sudden I am hearing you
6.
Softly try it now I won’t tell Shouldn’t take so long Don’t forget it’s all about to change and fall back long before the spell, I tried to say it right We were all scared to death I tried to change the ways all the ways But it was long before the spell Quietly try it Just keep trying now Don’t forget Don’t hold back It was long before the spell It’s taking you so long

Wasted Light 05:31
This is the place where I used to sit in front of the window waiting for the sun I remember this house used to have such a beautiful light Oh, wasted light! turned into dark in our hands We changed the house the color of walls and moved the furniture but the light was gone and so was our youth And in silence you smoked and we missed each other getting old and wasted time turned into dust in your lungs And in silence I choked and we missed each other getting old and wasted time turned into past in my eyes Who is the one in front of me? Whose is the face I see in the mirror? In front of the window waiting for the sun I remember the light in your eyes shut down like a fire Oh, wasted light! could have enlightened this house we changed it all the color of walls and moved the furniture but the light was gone and so was our youth And in silence you smoked and we missed each other getting old and wasted time turned into dust in your lungs And in silence I choked and we missed each other getting old and wasted time turned into past in my eyes
