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...

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

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

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!

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

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!

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

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

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

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.

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”

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

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

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
