Track Name: Wind
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
Track Name: Winterland
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?”
Track Name: The Day
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
Track Name: All of a Sudden
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
Track Name: Before the Spell
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
Track Name: Wasted Light
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

This is the place
where I used to sit
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
