Track Name: There is a lightness
There is a field I go to when I am clouds
There is dream I run to when I cant breathe

Oh I need to find a wintervoice
to fly me away from this place
to break these chains

There is a lightness on the water
it soothes my soul
There is a fire on the mountain
and I need to go there
Track Name: Before I became a wind
I was in love with the world
with a man
that was before I became a wind
I could dream of anything
cause I had gods confidence
that was before I became a riverstone
I could feel the warmth of a hand
explosions in my head
that was before I became a blue bird
blue bird
blue bird

That was before I became a wind
That was before I became a riverstone
That was before I became a blue bird
blue bird
blue bird
Track Name: Buried
How do I find my soul
is it on the bottom of the sea
deep
How do I find my soul
How do I find my soul
is it on the bottom of the sea
is it deep
under
is it deep
under

How do I find my soul
is it on the bottom of the sea
How do I find my soul
is it buried under the sea
Track Name: Wounds
There is a place that I go to when I am sad
it flows like the river of life

There is a tree I sleep under
it sings to me in rythm

There is a man I talk to when I am blue
with his wounds and words he saves me

There is a song that I have lost now
I am trying to find it again
Track Name: When the sun is warm
He kisses me but I stay strong
but I stay strong
but I stay strong

He kisses me when the sun is warm
when the sun is warm
when the sun is warm

He misses me when I am gone
when I am gone
when I am gone
Track Name: Butterflies and graves
When I was a child I thought like a child
I wept my tears I kept
I could never think of you as someone
who would fly away from me
and leave me all alone
and leave me all alone

When I was a child I played with butterflies and graves
my heart was a mess
I could never dream of you as someone
who would fly away from me
and leave me all alone
and leave me all alone
