Track Name: Valentino
Bright, of all wonders laid under the sun,
the light in the eyes of María the chosen one,
my chosen one

Time will be mine to be squandered and sold,
to burn, or to turn from,
I touched, but I could not hold, I could not hold

We come not for riches
We come here for love
The world and its mistress will not be enough
We live for tonight and we die for our art
We come here to break your heart

Ella canta, María
Ella canta del sol,
la luz de la luna,
locura del corazón,
mi corazón

We come not for riches
We come here for love
The world and its mistress will not be enough
We live for tonight and we die for our art
We come here to break your heart
We come here to break your heart

El canto,
María,
bright with the Andalucían light,
blue with Andalucían night

Pale moon or burning sun,
faster, how we will run

We come not for riches
We come here for love
The world and its mistress will not be enough
We live for tonight and we die for our art
We come here to break your heart
We come here to break your heart
Track Name: Come To The Fabulon
A life, blessed and divine, may never be mine
but oh what a feeling you just couldn't buy
Sound of all sounds!
Sight of all sights!
Come to the Fabulon!
Come see the lights!

High in the night, we delight everyone,
and all down the carnival midway they'll run
Pure as the fire,
as sure as our knives,
now for the moment,
the time of our lives

Sister Rosalia, child of the fair,
high wire, twist, a roll, a reel,
was lighter than air
How love kissed as though there was a lifetime to spare
Oh come, child of my child, come to the light,
tell me the tale of your day, of your night

And how we must burn like the stars just to light up the night
We must barter with fortune,
with all of our might,
the grace of the dancer,
the art of the mime,
for bread on the table and peace for a time

Sister Rosalia, child of the fair,
high wire, twist, a roll, a reel,
was lighter than air
How love kissed as though there was a lifetime to spare
Oh come, child of my child, come to the light,
tell me the tale of your day, of your night

A life and a world ago
Gentle and quiet as snow
all the old dreams, they will pass and will go,
the wish for the world,
for to never grow old,
the wish for the tale of all tales to be told

Sister Rosalia, child of the fair,
high wire, twist, a roll, a reel,
was lighter than air
How love kissed as though there was a lifetime to spare
Oh come, child of my child, come to the light,
tell me the tale of your day, of your night
oh come,
come to the Fabulon,
come see the lights!
Track Name: Marie Claire
Ingénue,
from and to another rendezvous
Do we run away from yesterday?
Are we only passing through today?
We drift our way through the scenes
And the more we kiss the less that it means
Is it easier the more you sell?
Oh, you’re talking so, it’s hard to tell
So farewell to you Marie Claire
It’s like a part of you will always be there
I was turning as you called my name,
drew me closer to the light,
to the flame.

Hazy days,
I was falling into lazy ways
And I thank you for the compliment
ah, but handsome doesn’t pay the rent
I see within from without
and my enemies I know all about,
oh but who will save me from my friends?
In the emptiness of when it ends
what depends on you Marie Claire?
It’s like a part of you will always be there
I was turning as you called my name
drew me closer to the light,
to the flame

Oh Marie Claire,
it’s like a part of you will always be there
I was turning as you called my name
drew me closer to the light,
to the flame
In a dream of a place that I knew,
a TV dinner in a room with a view
In another world
You passed me by,
now you’re the latest high
Good luck,
goodbye.
Track Name: Under The Candle Window
Hush in the branches, high and slow
Rush in the icemelt water aflow,
down the west coast,
out in the world we'll go,
hey ho!

Oh, Kyleakin, so far to go

Down to the end or the bend of the road
Hey, did you know this way?
Hey, did you know?
Cold to the toes and warm is the hand I hold

Oh, Kyleakin, so far to go
Twisty road,
high in mountainside and snow

I have called out to find you,
in shadows behind you,
in wind over moorland,
in spray by the shoreline,
hello,
bright as the golden dawn,
warm where the sun still shone,
oh what it is to be gone,

I will always come and go,
always so,
always be leaving,
and never know just how you'll grow,
and how you'll grow

See you under the candle window
Track Name: I'm Your Kinda Guy
Eyes invite,
bright and hazy by the candlelight,
light and lazy ‘til we’re out of sight,
out to all the things you want tonight

Well, don’t you want to disappear?
Get your coat, adieu and let’s get out of here?
With another view, another atmosphere
I’ll say all the things you want to hear

Don’t you want to hear
I’m not the kinda guy to see you home and dry?
Not the kind who’ll wrap you up and hold you tight?
But I’m your kinda guy
I’ll get you through the night
And you can bet you can forget me with the morning light

Don’t you want to get away?
And return to grace, return to yesterday?
Through the latest face, another holiday?
Lost in all the things you want me to say
Don’t you want me to say
I’m not the kinda guy who’ll see you home and dry?
Not the kind who’ll wrap you up and hold you tight?
But I’m your kinda guy
I’ll get you through the night
And you can bet you can forget me with the morning light

I’m not the kinda guy to see you home and dry
I’m not the kinda guy to wrap you up and hold you tight
But I’m your kinda guy
I’ll get you through the night
And you can bet you can forget me with the morning light
Track Name: The Life And Times
On any other day,
from the clock that calls to take the dream away,
or in the night that falls and stumbles to the dawn,
through the moans and through the mumbles,
stretch and yawn,
well, won't you feel our time is workaday?
Or will you hear the birds and see the children play?
Should I find the words, the reason or the rhyme
I am glad and I am grateful for the time,
and just to wake again to any other day
a not so complicated any other day,
I never wanted all that I was meant to chase

Time will travel light,
from memory consecrated,
years ago, in flight,
to where you're still frustrated,
shying from the light,
from the name that you would call out in the night
But I can hear the running underway,
through city streets, unparkable,
the tarmacadam grey of Monday unremarkable,
you walk me to the door,
barely dressed,
and how I wanted you once more,
and all the world could wait ‘til any other day
A not so complicated any other day,
I never wanted all that I was meant to chase
and all the world can wait
and I am not afraid

All the world can wait
and I am not afraid
of any other day
Track Name: The Land Reforms
All for the land and land for all
All for the land and land for all
Or the wage in our hand and the windfall we may call our own

I know the enemy
I burn the effigy
Work and the family
We are never alone
We are never alone
Now as will always be
We are all for the land and land for all
All for the land and land for all
Or the wage in our hand
and the windfall we may call our own
And to fall as we stand
from the soil and seed to bloom full grown,
and joy to the world

Daughters and sons,
in all we have done
We were all for the land and land for all
All for the land and land for all
Or the wage in our hand
and the windfall we may call our own
We are all for the land and land for all
All for the land and land for all

By the grace of our hand,
daughters and sons,
in all we have done
always remember we,
we were all for the land and land for all
All for the land and land for all
We are all for the land.
Track Name: Our Time Was Like A Dream
We laid a flower, goodbye
where memories never die
A table in the sun,
to life!
to everyone!

As surely comes the dawn,
as when you're far and gone,
to high and homeward climb,
I shan't forget the time
I heard the angels sigh,
a thousand kisses high,
I'd take the lonesome chance,
if only for one dance
to hold you Paris, France.

We're once around the lights
and lost to strange delights
We howl the moonlight down,
the only show in town
The roads are ours to roam
and when you're far from home
in places never been,
the spaces in between,
I'll hear the angels sigh
a thousand kisses high,
I'd take the lonesome chance,
if only for one dance
to hold you Paris, France

As far as I can see
this night that winks at me
I’d take the lonesome chance,
to hold you Paris, France

How strange the days will seem
Our time was like a dream.
Track Name: Tenterhooks
Bird of the morning, sing for me
Flower of the garden, spring for me
High in the arms of the hideout tree
So sorry, olly olly oxen free
What will I find out?
What will I see?
Turning the handle, turning the key,
time to be lost and time to be free
in a world as wide as awake can be

I will make good time
I will read good books
on tenterhooks,
on tenterhooks
I will see the sights
I will leave good looks
on tenterhooks,
on tenterhooks
I will take what's mine to the next stop,
waiting in line.

In a clockwork world could I clockwork be?
Far from the arms of the hideout tree,
in a shocked, awed world,
should I shocked, awed be?
In an opt-out world with an opt-out me?

I will make good time
I will read good books
on tenterhooks,
on tenterhooks
I will see the sights
I will leave good looks
on tenterhooks,
on tenterhooks
I will take what's mine to the next stop,
waiting in line.

For the okay life,
for the okay dream,
for the okay lie,
on the okay scene
I will take what's mine to the next stop,
waiting,
on tenterhooks.
Track Name: When I Walked The World
Time runs away,
but should I find you again,
come some happy day,
shall we raise our glasses then,
talk of the old days and stolen horses,
long gone affairs,
short and sweet divorces?

Fall where we may, forsaken, broken,
Now shall we say the words never spoken?
Bright was the day,
sweet was the moment,
when I walked the world, when I sailed the ocean

As all things come to an end,
just these parting words,
in turning to go, my friend,
though we be burned,
or be bound and chained,
our time spent loving will be time regained

Fall where we may, forsaken, broken,
Now shall we say the words never spoken?
Bright was the day,
sweet was the moment,
when I walked the world, when I sailed the ocean
Track Name: Come The Revolution
I never wanted to rule the world and I didn't want to be king,
but oh, how I wanted to change the world, I wanted to change everything
Change everything,
we will change everything

Jesus Christ and his lunatics,
they always meant nothing to me
but, Jesus Christ and his lunatics,
they won't leave a good heathen be

Leave a good heathen be!
Leave a good heathen be!

We storm the palace, we eat the rich,
we promise an Eden, and then,
when we own the palace
and we are the rich
there'll be murder all over again

Murder over again!
Murder over again!
There'll be murder all over again!
