Track Name: My Extraordinary Life
1. I’ll disappoint myself if I go away
I have so much to do, need to stay
Who will take care of the children?
Who will make their dreams come true?

2. Quite frankly I don’t need a saviour
I don’t need noone to pull me through, yet
If I were drowning and you were too
Who would throw the rope, who would save you?

I’m living in a maverick town, sometimes it makes me cry
So many masks, so many clowns
Torn between truth and facade, makes me laugh
So many broken hearts
But through the shadows of my ordinary day
I’ve learned to breath in an extraordinary way
I’m terrified but i’m alright
Living an extraordinary life

CHORUS
Between the black and the white I find clarity
Between the darkness and light you resurrect me
I am a vision in white, serenity
Come inside my extraordinary life

3. I’ve been to the belly of the whale, the treasure lies within
The road is long, i dream quietly, where do i belong?
In a moment of time I realize everything is as it should be
I submerge in

I deconstruct the ego hut
Every moment a brand new start
Try to look ahead but I’m denied, living an extraordinary life

CHORUS (above)

Bridge:
Expression, repression, contemplation, illusion (breathing in and out)
deception, introspection, separation, confusion
Will you come with me, will you come deep inside?
Will you live with me, in my extraordinary life

Solo

CHORUS (above)

LAST CHORUS
Between the self and the cure I find dignity
Between abundance and few, anonymity
I’m in search of the truth, simplicity
Come inside my extraordinary life
my extraordinary life, life, life, life...
Track Name: Release Me
1. I don’t think I don’t think I don’t think… we should speak
I don’t want I don’t want I don’t want emotion… makes me weak
I don’t care I don’t care I don’t care you’re never there, but

I’M WANTING YOUR TOUCH
I’M FEELING YOUR FIRE
I’M HOSTAGE TO MEMORIES
I’M NOTHING….TO YOU
SO RELEASE ME

We loved we loved we loved we loved, struggled and fought
Why, why, why, why do you haunt me so, lost in the meaning of “the one”
I don’t care I don’t care I don’t care you don’t forgive, but

I’M WANTING YOUR TOUCH
I’M FEELING YOUR FIRE
I’M HOSTAGE TO MEMORIES
I’M NOTHING….TO YOU
SO RELEASE ME

We never met, we never knew one another
We never kissed, we never shared we never cared, we never...
And if I saw you on the street, I’d pass right by you
We never had the chance to really meet, we are like strangers, like strangers...
I don’t care I don’t care I don’t care if you hate me.

WANTING WANTING WANTING

I’M WANTING YOUR TOUCH
I’M FEELING YOUR FIRE
I’M HOSTAGE TO MEMORIES
I’M NOTHING….TO YOU
SO RELEASE ME
Track Name: Hollywood
1. So I landed in Hollywood, and here I have stood where I can be me
I’ve dreamed all of these years and worked through my fears
To be the best I can be
Some time has past, I’ve arrived at last to a place of clarity
But my inward heart has torn apart
Between illusion and real

CHORUS
I don’t wanna be far from you
I’m missing you
In Hollywood
I don’t wanna be wasting my time
Without you by my side
In Hollywood
In Hollywood, In Hollywood, In Hollywood

2. I could be taking my time, watching the signs till they all believe
Maybe, maybe, maybe I’m faking I’m fine,
Saving my dignity
I’m doing my best it’s a life long test for a girl like me
And I’m not against this town had my ups and downs my greatest story
Is I’m - still – here

CHORUS

‘Cause you know I’ve been searching
And you know I’ll never turn my back no you
But I’m waiting for my resurrection, so come on
Save me from this fantasy tell me I don’t need to be
Here Anymore / or Any one but me

In Hollywood, In Hollywood, In Hollywood

3. How will my story end, do I have to pretend or will I see from afar
that no matter the place nor the change in my face - I’ll always feel - like - a - rockstar

LAST CHORUS
I don’t wanna be far from you
I’m missing you In Hollywood
I don’t wanna be wasting my time
Without you by my side In Hollywood

Cos no one will be there if I fall
They’re all busy answering their own calls In Hollywood
So if I say goodbye, please don’t cry

Cos I’ll always love you, I’ll always belong to you
Singing my songs of you - My Hollywood

In Hollywood, In Hollywood, In Hollywood - In Hollywood, In Hollywood, …. In Hollywood
Track Name: Evolution
1. Burning, churning, thinking everything is
Running through my head suffocating
Learning, breathing communicating
Nothing’s coming out, and I’m
Trying, sighing, visualizing
Everything is coming out lying
Sleeping, dreaming, procrastinating
Feeling rather blue.
I’m a

RIOT IN MY OWN LIVING ROOM
AND I’M NOT SO GOOD AT COMMUNICATION
BETTER SILENT AS MY OWN GOLDEN RULE
I JUST DON’T FIT IN TO EVOLUTION

2. Tick, tock, think about the clock
I’m waiting here at the starting block.
No one told me the race has already been won..
I’m running out of time 31, 32, 33, 34, 35
I should be home, put the children to bed,
kiss the hubby good night instead I’m just a

RIOT IN MY OWN LIVING ROOM
AND I’M NOT SO GOOD AT COMMUNICATION
BETTER SILENT AS MY OWN GOLDEN RULE
I JUST DON’T FIT IN TO EVOLUTION

ahhhh….. woo ho.

3. I like my own company, whether
here whether there it’s all about me.
You can stay for a while if you like ‘cause
I like you near…
I’m not so good at what’s ahead I
Live in the moment… instead,
and Past experience tells me so I’d
Rather go with the flow.

I’m a
RIOT IN MY OWN LIVING ROOM
AND I CAN’T PUT THINGS INTO MOTION
BETTER SILENT AS MY OWN GOLDEN RULE
I JUST DON’T FIT IN TO EVOLUTION

I’m a
RIOT IN MY OWN LIVING ROOM
AND I SEEM TO SPARK A LOT OF FRICTION
BETTER SILENT AS MY OWN GOLDEN RULE
I JUST DON’T FIT IN TO EVOLUTION
I JUST DON’T FIT IN TO EVOLUTION
I JUST DON’T FIT IN TO EVOLU……….TION!
Track Name: Undone
I wait in silence for the beauty

Nothing I hear nothing tell me something

Time heals all wounds they say

I’m here restless to love again, will someone



Kiss me, ease me, feel me, shelter me

Touch me, I’m needing, desperately and tenderly

I’m coming undone, coming undone



I’ve been a victim of succumbing to the dark

Moments so draining, senses paralysed

Listed to your heart beat racing, wanting

I’m here restless to love again, will someone

Kiss me, ease me, feel me, shelter me

Touch me, I’m needing, desperately and tenderly

I’m coming undone, coming undone
Track Name: Circus Of Life
CHORUS
I don’t wanna die in the suburbs
I’d fly in the sky like a bird being free
I’d live on the bottom of a deep blue sea
than drown in suburbia that’s killing me.
The circus of life gets you lost then found
Going up going down and round and round
A game you can play again and again
Back to the beginning my friend
It’s a circus, circus, circus, circus of life

1. Can be hard to get ahead
You feel it’s one long road going wrong instead
Two steps forward three steps back
But every clown knows to keep on smiling
Every cloud has a silver lining

CHORUS short
I don’t wanna die in the suburbs
I’d fly in the sky like a bird being free
I’d live on the bottom of a deep blue sea
than drown in suburbia that’s killing me.

2. You could be chasing your tail
Or you could be spiralling high and touching stars
It all depends on how you see it
Every child has imagination
Life’s gift is improvisation.

CHORUS full

Bridge:
When I get old I wanna swing from the trapeze
Never be afraid to hang from my knees
‘Cause life’s too short, and I’m not that sort
…. to die…

solo

CHORUS (breakdown)
I don’t wanna die… in the suburbs
I’d fly in the sky .. like a bird being free
I’d live on the bottom.. of a deep blue sea
Than drown in suburbia!
Track Name: Spaceship
1. I can remember you and me kissing in our spaceship alone
We dreamt alone,
in the silence we hoped love would solve it all
I can remember the joy, the tears, the light, the dark,
everything…
Lying in our spaceship alone,
hoping love would solve it all.

I was wide open like an ocean I crashed on the floor
I struggled to stand in the sand and I have..
You stood by helpless unable to jump in the sea
You weren’t ready for me, but now

HERE YOU ARE, FACING ME ONCE AGAIN
TIME TRAVELLING TO MAKE AMENDS.
HERE YOU ARE TESTING THE WATERS MY FRIEND
TIME TRAVELLING, BACK INTO OUR SPACESHIP AGAIN

2. Newton had a theory about gravity, light and speed
But what about time?
Did he know that time heals wounds.
Standing at the crossroads with out heart in our hands,
breathing it all in, letting it go
Healing the past
Can we heal the wounds?

Floating in space we could erase the forwards and back
I’m wanting but I’m holding back
You stood by helpless unable to jump in the sea
Are you ready for me?

CHORUS

Bridge:
We were once best of friends
But we stood behind enemy lines..
What would they all say if we escaped in our spaceship again?

…… time traveling…

HERE YOU ARE, FACING ME ONCE AGAIN
TIME TRAVELLING TO MAKE AMENDS.
HERE YOU ARE TESTING THE WATERS MY FRIEND
TIME TRAVELLING, BACK INTO OUR SPACESHIP AGAIN

HERE WE ARE FACING THE ISSUES ATAIN
TIME TRAVELLING, LOSING THE CHAOS MY FRIEND
HERE YOU ARE TESTING THE WATERS MY FRIEND
TIME TRAVELLING, BACK INTO OUR SPACESHIP AGAIN
Track Name: Bye Is Such A Lonely Word
1. I believe there's just one step in coming together.

I believe we can make it last forever

And if we really try we wouldn't have to say goodbye coz

Bye is such a lonely word.



CHORUS

So don't say bye, bye bye, bye...

Bye, bye, bye...

No don't say bye, bye is such a lonely word

Bye, bye, bye...



2. I believe there's no need to part like this.

Yeah I believe we needn't have to spoil our bliss

But if you say bye bye, that love you gave would have been a lie and

Bye is such a lonely word.



CHORUS



Bridge

Don't just stand there half here, half there!

Stay by my side, that's all I care,

Coz if you say goodbye...tears in my eyes...

And I love you....Oh I love you, love you!



CHORUS
Track Name: The Kiss
In the stormy weather
I reach out to you
Keeping the demons at bay
Restless, silent longing

Believing in our destiny
A place not so lonely
My time for deliverance
Peaceful tenderness

Kiss me, like it’s our last
Kiss me over and over
Kiss me endlessly
So I can live on and on and on and on
In the Kiss.

It’s dark inside and outside
I watch the lights go out
People racing, looking
Searching for a way back home.

Do we notice in our loneliness
We are surrounded by kindred hearts
Reach out towards me
I’m ready I’m ready I’m ready I’m ready

Kiss me, like it’s our last
Kiss me over and over
Kiss me endlessly
So I can live on and on and on and on
In the Kiss.

I’m ready I’m ready I’m ready I’m ready
Track Name: The Enchanted Forest
1. every day i give myself the authority
to be who i am, 'cause i can.
and anytime i need a little energy
i reach for your hand, 'cause i can.

in another world i would have been six hundred feet tall
but i grew small and feisty.
i never look back and i feel alive
inside.. i am mighty.

CHORUS
take my hand and i'll guide you
take my hand and i'll show you
the enchanted forest

2. sometimes i climb from the outside in and get lost in a
thousand leagues under, 'cause i can.
i swim through mud blinded by comfort, cling to the ladder,
passing the thunder, 'cause i can.

in a prophet's world we would never look back, never look back
there would only be you and me

CHORUS
take my hand and i'll guide you
take my hand and i'll show you
the enchanted forest
take my hand and i'll nourish you
i can give you
the enchanted forest

(Bridge)
don't be dismayed by my unencumbered strength
i know.. what's... true
and when i seem a little distant
i'm just taking it all ... in ... all ... of ... you

'cause i know what's right for me... female intuition
and i know what's going on with you... woman's suspicion
getting from point A to B, trust in ...

CHORUS
... my hand to guide you
(the enchanted forest)
... my hand to show you
(the enchanted forest)
the enchanted, the magical, the ever wonderful forest
(the enchanted forest)
my hand to nourish you
(the enchanted forest)
my heart to guide you
(the enchanted forest)
my love to show you that nothing else matters, but seeing the forest through the trees.
Track Name: Little Boy Lost
1. I’m still searching for the man, he has a tale to tell me,

Hidden in the forest among the trees.

The trees disappear, then comes the fear,

The man is no longer there.



2. In a cold, cold world with no thought of hope,

He says only that thought in his despair.

Nothing is right and everything costs,

In the woods is a little boy lost.



CHORUS

Little boy, why do you hurt so?

Can’t you realise you must flow?

See what you want to see,

Be what you want to be,

And the forest will set you free...



3. His dream is so wide, it destroys him inside.

He is the only one who really knows.

Inside it’s real, his eyes are moist.

But in life, he is a little boy lost.



CHORUS



(Bridge) Can you hear the wind - something to tell me

The man in the forest - has gone away

Cause the wind knows more - knows more than me

Fate will guide the boy and me....



CHORUS



Only you know

Tell us your tale

“Can’t see the woods from the trees”
Track Name: We Can Work It Out
1. Thinkin’ ‘bout the the rain, thinkin’ who to blame, thinkin’ what a shame

To lose you.

Guess I’m gonna miss when we used to kiss, that’s the way it is

Or the way it should

Never gonna let it go

This feeling we used to know

Let the rain fall away

Make me feel the same way - ‘cos



WE CAN WORK IT OUT

WE CAN FIND THE RIGHT CONNECTION

IN A SEA OF DOUBT, KISS ME AGAIN

‘COS WE CAN WORK - IT OUT



2. Sitting In the park, way after dark, tight in your arms

Soaked in your laughter

Wasn’t it a thrill holding on so still, loving you until

We swam under water

Love is what I feel

There’s nothing love cannot heal

You and me, me and you

It’s something we can get through, ‘cos



WE CAN WORK IT OUT

WE CAN FIND THE RIGHT CONNECTION

IN A SEA OF DOUBT, KISS ME AGAIN

‘COS WE CAN WORK - IT OUT



And when the planets align with Mars

It’ll all be written in the stars

I wanna swim in your sunshine

All we need is a little time



WE CAN WORK IT OUT

WE CAN FIND THE RIGHT CONNECTION

IN A SEA OF DOUBT, KISS ME AGAIN

‘COS WE CAN WORK - IT OUT
Track Name: Deconstruction
I hold my breath I catch myself

It oozes from my pores

I resist

I put up walls

‘Cause I fear to fall

But what is this fear I feel

An inability to stand tall

Never lose my sense of self

Rigid in my id

You come to me open arms

and I deconstruct all ego

Deconstruct the self - Surrender deconstruction.

Surrender to swimming

Underwater upside down

Deconstruct the fear

Dip into the well

Clean out the cobwebs

Decompose addiction

Surrender deconstruction.

Let it come.



Who am I but no one special

Perfection doesn’t make me.

I float and be the bag

Wherever wind takes me.

Be mine, my sweet wine,

As I disassemble the priority line

I’m facing a highway and feeling

Tender in my convictions.



Am I alone in this dualism of creation?

We’re born alone, we live alone we die alone.

That’s what the angel sang to me but I resist

I want more than this.

I deconstruct the symbols and the signs

And find metaphors to guide me to unity

Clarity

Together, another, love beyond the borders

Of my own heart.

Can there be two hearts that beat like one?



Many paths I’ve traveled, many roads have led me here.

I cry I laugh I shout I retreat

Circumstances created fear.

I’ve lived a thousand years and spoken with devils and angels

I run the mile, the lonely mile

Path least traveled through the ages.

And in my rhetoric

Of this moment being mine

Past present future

It’s one delicious glass of wine

Solitude is comforting

But it’s not where I want to be

I’m blindfolded ready

Into the abyss you guide me

Goddess, mother, warrior, man,

Lover, mermaid, phoenix, wife

Husband, father, sister, brother,

Jump into my extraordinary life
Track Name: The Wind
I don't wanna be some maid on the shelf

I don't wanna be a part time lover

I don't wanna be fooled by tempters and sorcerers

I know I will weather the wind



I'll take it as it comes, I'll take it without sugar

I'll take it as it comes, I'm not afraid

I can be surprising, connected to my destiny

Surrendering, surrendering everything....



I don't wanna be some casual thing

I don't wanna be one of the others

I don't wanna lose my sensual mystery

My secrets remain with the wind



I'll take it as it comes, connected to my senses

I'll take it as it comes, breathe in breathe out

I can sleep alright, even in my solitude

Surrendering, surrendering everything...



Be mine, my sweet sweet wine

Slowly tenderly we cross the line

And all is forgiven, all is forgiven... in time....



Paz y tranquilidad volvieron a mi vida. No quiero verte más.
Soy feliz sin ti.
No quiero saber nada más de ti.
Todo se terminó. Ya es el fin.
Te mando al viento!



I'll take it as it comes, tossed by the tumbleweeds

I'll take it as it comes, I AM THE WIND

Life is surprising, connected to my destiny

Surrendering, surrendering everything



I'll take it as it comes, I'll take it without sugar

I'll take it as it comes, I AM THE WIND

Letting you go, you wash right through me

Surrendering, surrendering everything....



I don't wanna be fooled by tempters and sorcerers
