tonight she's leaving (free) 02:00
born from a twinkle in her eye tonight she's leaving soon she'll be far away tomorrow she'll be sleeping and i don't wanna hear you tell a lie and i don't wanna watch you say goodbye it's a matter of star-crossed lovers but there's a moon in the way i wonder if we will see each other i wonder if you will stay born from a twinkle in her eye tonight she's leaving soon she'll be far away tomorrow she'll be sleeping and i don't wanna see you in the sky and i don't wanna long to hear your sigh it's a matter of fact or fiction but i'm just too tired to read i wonder if we will see each other i wonder if you will stay born from a twinkle in her eye tonight she's leaving soon she'll be far away tomorrow she'll be sleeping

people come people go i see them everyday i was lost in the cold until the end of may didn't think i would find someone quite like you it's like you stepped out of time and all i saw was true and i won't ever know how long it has been since one of us lived just to die without sin and i won't hold you back and i won't bring you down and i won't be afraid of the earth spinning round

alone 01:44
i alone will always hold you tight i alone will get you through the night

here you stand with your heart in tow and oh, i know you loved him so such a loss when you can't let go and oh, i know you loved him so time stands still in this picture show and oh, i know you loved him so

wind calls 02:19
lost and broken not forgotten and the wind from the mountain top it calls my name mind divided soul derided and the wind from the mountain top it calls my name clouds of thunder over under and the wind from the mountain top still calls my name the wind it calls my name it had to fall all the same
8.
i can feel a softness deep under your skin silence takes away the dark as light begins i love you i love you and i want you to make it rain i love you i love you not a thing remains the same i can feel a presence deep within my soul no more will i need the reigns of self control i love you i love you and i want you to make it rain i love you i love you not a thing remains the same i can feel a softness deep under your skin silence takes away the dark as light begins i love you i love you and i want you to make it rain i love you i love you not a thing remains the same

why must we be so afraid when nothing's left to know or say light a fire from the start it must be love it must be from the heart every moment out of time is infinite but always dies light a fire from the start it must be love it must be from the heart

still 02:12
give us our daily bread that's what the lady said she opened up her arms the sun turned red green leaves will turn to brown rest lightly on the ground she opened up her arms without a sound my dear do you listen do you hear? do you sit down in the night with all your doubt and all your fear? give us our daily bread that's what the lady said she opened up her arms the sun turned red she said there's so much pain in your head maybe stillness is the answer that will end all your dread
11.
this time the wind won't blow away from me it took a lot but now i have to see the fear of loss will tear your head apart there's nothing i can do to free your heart if there's no love right now there'll never be all that i long for is a part of me if there's no love

lullaby 01:38
goodnight, little one, it's time for your dreams to wake i hope this lullaby will always be yours to take

about

"There is pop that placates, and pop that pleads, but Ottesen’s pop engages. It’s a reaching out that isn’t tainted by desperation or mixed motives, a reaching out that implicitly demands as much patience and inner stillness from the listener as it contains within itself." - Identity Theft
