Track Name: Wishin' you luck
TONIGHT IS THE NIGHT MY FRIENDS
I JUST TOOK 50 EUROS FROM MY CURRENT ACCOUNT,

I’VE BOUGHT SOME CIGARETTES
AND I’VE SHAVED MY FACE
I LOOK LIKE A GOD NOW, I LOOK LIKE A GIANT NOW.

MY SHOULDER SCREAMS ETERNITY
AND MY VOICE SOUNDS LIKE CHIMES,

I DON’T FEEL NERVOUS,
COME ON FELLOWS
LET’S MEET THE DESTINY,
LET’S SEARCH FOR THE GOOD LUCK.

A FLEMISH PARK
BRINGS US TO HELL,
THERE WE CAN LAY ON DEVIL’S HAND,

LET US EMBARK THE LAST SHIP
THAT FLIES SO HIGH,
TO THE FOREIGN SEAS.

MY SHOULDER SCREAMS ETERNITY
AND MY VOICE SOUNDS LIKE CHIMES,

I DON’T FEEL NERVOUS,
COME ON FELLOWS
LET’S MEET THE DESTINY,
LET’S SEARCH FOR THE GOOD LUCK.

THEN I MET A DYLAN’S GIRL,
SHE WAS 17 BUT SHE LOOKED
OLDER THAN ME,

IN THE CENTRE WHERE THE RIVER FLOWS,
OUR BRIDGES MELT
LIKE A FLAKE ON SARAH’S LIPS.

MY SHOULDER SCREAMS ETERNITY
AND MY VOICE SOUNDS LIKE CHIMES,

I DON’T FEEL NERVOUS,
COME ON FELLOWS
LET’S MEET THE DESTINY,
LET’S SEARCH FOR THE GOOD LUCK.
Track Name: She Believes in my Eyes
WHEN I MET YOUR HEART
I WAS JUST A DREAM,
AND IN YOUR NIGHT
I WAS ALONE
AND I WAS SO TIRED,

DAY BY DAY AND TIME TO TIME
I GREW UP,
NOW I SEE YOUR PRINCESS FACE
AND I KNOW

SUN IS GREYER THAN SHADOW’S FALL
WITH RED SKIN WITH SOME LONELY WORK,
AND THEN THE PEOPLE TOLD ME,
YOU’RE CRAZY FOR LOVE,

AND WHEN YOU TOUCH ME
WITH YOUR WITH SWEET LOVE I SING

SHE BELIEVES IN MY EYES
SHE BELIEVES IN MY SOUL
SHE COULD DREAM IN MY ARMS
SHE COULD FEEL JUST MY LOVE.

WHERE ARE WE WALKIN’ TONIGHT?
STARS AREN’T SHINNIN’,
BABE I USED TO THINK
I WAS SAFE UNDER YOUR SKIN,

KISS ME TIL THE END OF THIS NIGHT,
SIT RIGHT HERE BEHIND A SHINNIN’ LAMP.

NOW I’VE MET YOUR HEART
AND I AM JUST A DREAM,
AND IN YOUR NIGHT I AM ALONE
AND I AM SO TIRED,

AND THE DAYS ARE GOIN’ ON SO FAST,
BUT I SEE YOUR PRINCESS FACE AND I KNOW

I BELIEVE IN YOUR EYES
I BELIEVE IN YOUR SOUL
I COULD DREAM IN YOUR ARMS
I COULD FEEL JUST YOUR LOVE

SHE BELIEVES IN MY EYES
SHE BELIEVES IN MY SOUL
SHE COULD DREAM IN MY ARMS
SHE COULD FEEL JUST MY LOVE.

HOW CAN I SAY THAT I LOVE YOU?
HOW CAN I SAY THAT I NEED YOU?

YOU BURN IN THE NIGHT
LIKE THE FIRE OF THE STARS
YOU SHINE IN THE RISING SUN
LIKE MY CRY,

SO BELIEVE ME UPON YOUR DOOR
SO BELIEVE ME UPON YOUR ROOM.

SHE BELIEVES IN MY EYES
SHE BELIEVES IN MY SOUL
SHE COULD DREAM IN MY ARMS
SHE COULD FEEL JUST MY LOVE.

I BELIEVE IN YOUR EYES
I BELIEVE IN YOUR SOUL
I COULD DREAM IN YOUR ARMS
I COULD FEEL JUST YOUR LOVE.

SHE BELIEVES IN MY EYES.
Track Name: She's not the only one
SHE’S PHENOMENAL, AND SHE ALWAYS UNDERSTANDS
WHAT I WANNA SAY
UNDERNEATH HER TREE.

I LIKE HER SPECIALLY WHEN SHE DOESN’T LOOK AT ME,
SHE’S THE JUDGE.
I DO BELIEVE IN WONDERS ‘CAUSE SINCE WE’VE MET
EVERYTHING SEEMS COLOURIZED IN GREEN.

SHE’S BECOMING IMPORTANT IN MY LIFE
AND I THINK I’LL HAVE TO DECIDE FOR THE FIRST TIME.
SO I’LL BRING HER TO MY SECRET ROOM
BEHIND A PALACE OF PROMISES,

SO I’LL PRAY HER, DO YOU WANNA TRY SOMETHING MORE?
IT’S OKAY TO TASTE IT,
IT’S GOOD, IT’S ALRIGHT, YEAH.

SHE’S NOT THE ONLY ONE, IN MY HEART

BUYING SOME SPECIAL CLOTHES FOR THE MAGIC OCASION,
I’LL SING THAT I LOVE HER BUT I DON’T,

‘CAUSE I’LL KISS HER FLESH, I’LL GET IN HER PATH
LIKE A SWORD ASKING HER TO FEEL GOOD,

BECAUSE ALL THE MEN WERE BORN
WITH THE BEST AND THE WORSE,
WE HAVE THE POWER OF PLEASURE.

INSIDE A KINGDOM OF FATE
WHAT AM I SUPPOSE TO FEEL
WHEN SHE CRIES UNDERNEATH ME?

I’LL SAY IT’S GOOD,
IT’S ALRIGHT,
YEAH.

SHE’S NOT THE ONLY ONE, IN MY HEART.

YOU’RE NOT THE ONLY ONE, IN MY HEART.

SHE’S NO THE ONLY ONE IN MY HEART.
Track Name: Give me love (Sonnet 100)
WHERE ART THOU MUSE THAT THOU FORGET’ST SO LONG
TO SPEAK OF THAT WHICH GIVES THEE ALL THY MIGHT?
SPEND’ST THOU THY FURY ON SOME WORTHLESS SONS,
DARKENING THY POWER TO LEND BASE SUBJECTS LIGHT?

RETURN, FORGETFUL MUSE, AND STRAIGHT REDEEM
IN GENTLE NUMBERS TIME SO IDLY SPENT;
SING TO THE EAR THAT DOTH THY LAYS ESTEEM,
AND GIVES THY PEN BOTH SKILL AND ARGUMENT,

RISE, RESTY MUSE, MY LOVE’S SWEET FACE SURVEY.
IF TIME HAVE ANY WRINKLE GRAVEN THERE:
IF ANY BE A SATIRE TO DECAY,
AND MAKE TIME’S SPOILS DESPISED EVERY WHERE.

GIVE ME LOVE.
Track Name: Sumday
IF YOU HOLD MY TEARS THEN I’LL BE THERE
TO CATCH YOU WHEN YOU FALL
AND TO WAKE UP BESIDE YOU.

TODAY IS SUNDAY, THE SKIES ARE GREY,
I JUST DRINK COFFEE TRYING
TO UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY,

PROBABLY NOTHIN’,
I’M SURE THAT NOTHIN’,

PROBABLY I DON’T
HAVE NOTHIN’ TO REGRET,
BUT MAYBE I WOULD LIKE TO.

I’M WAITING FOR YOUR CALL
YOU SAID LET’S MEET TOMORROW,
ANYWHERE, IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER.

BUT FOUR DAYS HAVE PASSED
AND I’M STILL FAITHFUL
TO THAT PROMISE YOU CANNOT CARRY OUT

AS MY BOSS ALWAYS SAYS
DON’T CARE THAT MUCH FOR ANYONE,

I COULDN’T SEE ANY PAIN,
INTO HIS EYES
WHILE HE WAS FIRING ME OUT

BUT MAYBE I WANTED SO.

WANNA SMOKE AND DRINK
WANNA TOUCH AND FEEL
WANNA PLAY MY SONGS
WANNA SHOW MY VIEW
WANNA THINK ABOUT THE UNTHOUGHT.
Track Name: Touch
SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD,
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHERE,
JUST TO BE FAR AWAY FROM HERE,

FROM EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE,
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NATURE.

I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE
IN ONE HAND THE SEA
AND IN THE OTHER THE HILL.

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL COMBINATION OF THE WORLD,
I WOULD LIKE TO WAKE YOU UP,

IN A BEAUTIFUL MORNING TO SHOW
YOU THE DAWN,
ASKIN’ YOU NOT TO BE SCARED BY CLOUDS,

I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE
IN ONE HAND THE SEA
AND IN THE OTHER THE HILL.

TO SHOW YOU THE DAWN,
AND THEN I’LL BE HOLDING YOU BACK
INTO MY ARMS,
YOU SHOULD KNOW YOU STILL INSPIRE ME.

THE FIRST SUNSHINE STARTS TO WARM ME,
OPENING THE WINDOW,
THE SONG OF BIRDS,
FONDLE MY EARS
AND THEN I REALISE
THAT IT WAS JUST A DREAM. YEAH YEAH
Track Name: O, know sweet love
WHY IS MY VERSE SO BARREN OF NEW PRIDE,
SO FAR FROM VARIATION OR QUICK CHANGE?
WHY WITH THE TIME DO I NOT GLANCE ASIDE
TO NEW-FOUND METHODS, AND TO COMPOUNDS STRANGE?

WHY WRITE I STILL ALL ONE, EVER THE SAME,
AND KEEP INVENTION IN A NOTED WEED,
THAT EVERY WORD DOTH ALMOST TELL MY NAME,
SHOWING THEIR BIRTH AND WHERE THEY DID PROCEED?

O! KNOW SWEET LOVE I ALWAYS WRITE OF YOU,
AND YOU AND LOVE ARE STILL MY ARGUMENT;
SO ALL MY BEST IS DRESSING OLD WORDS NEW,
SPENDING AGAIN WHAT IS ALREADY SPENT;

FOR AS THE SUN IS DAILY NEW AND OLD,
SO IS MY LOVE STILL TELLING WHAT IS TOLD.
Track Name: Agnès
ELLA CREIXERÀ FINALMENT,
DESPRÉS DE TRAVESSAR
LA LLACUNA DELS ÀNGELS,

ELLA SOMRIURÀ
QUAN LES PRIMERES NAUS
SE’N VAGIN,

DES D’UN PONT FORADAT
LES ONADES DE SANG
S’EMPORTEN ELS COLORS
AMB QUE UN DIA VA PINTAR,

CREUS QUE SABRÀ MOLT MÉS
QUAN ESTIGUI TAN AMUNT ON
NO HI HA NIT,

CUIDA EL QUE ENSENYA QUAN RIU,
GUANYA EL SEU POLS AMB LA NIT,

ELLA DUU AL FRONT L’ULL
QUE LI VAS DONAR EN MORIR.

TOT IRREAL, FOSC I DELIRANT,
EL NEGRE POLZE DEL TEMPS
CAP A BAIX.

LA MORT NO ÉS SENZILLA,
PERÒ ÉS FÀCIL MORIR,

L’ÀNIMA FABRICA SOLS
EN TAÜTS ENNUVOLATS.

QUE VAN EN UN PARATGE
DE PASTURES ESTELARS

ON ANIMALS DE LLUM
ES RECULLEN EN RAMATS

I UN ARTQUITECTE DE NÚVOLS
ELS APROPA CAP A OBAGUES
INMORTALS,

PERÒ QUAN OBRES LA CARPETA DE QUART
ET DEMANES SI EN EL QUE ÉS BREU HI HA ETERNITAT

I ELS VELLS RECORDS CANVIEN
EN POBLES PER LLUNES EMMURALLATS

I EL PERFUM DEL BUIT
QUE ET VA DEIXAR

L’OLORA LA DONA QUE TENS AL COSTAT,
TREU UNA MÀ ENDINS DE L’AIGUA
QUE ET RODEJA I T’OFEGA
ELS DIES CLARS,

I MALGRAT GIRIS
PER CAMINS EQUIVOCATS,
ESTÀ ORGULLOSA
QUE HO VAGIS INTENTANT

SEU AMB TU UN MOMENT QUE ET BESA I DIU,
L’AGNÈS ET FA UN PETÓ
QUAN JO TE’L FAIG.
Track Name: True Minds (Sonnet 76)
LET ME NOT TO THE MARRIAGE OF TRUE MINDS
ADMIT IMPEDIMENTS. LOVE IS NOT LOVE
WHICH ALTERS WHEN IT ALTERATION FINDS,
OR BENDS WITH THE REMOVER TO REMOVE:

O NO! IT IS AN EVER-FIXED MARK
THAT LOOKS ON TEMPESTS AND IS NEVER SHAKEN;
IT IS THE STAR TO EVERY WANDERING BARK,
WHOSE WORTH’S UNKNOWN, ALTHOUGH HIS HEIGHT BE
TAKEN.

LOVE’S NOT TIME’S FOOL, THOUGH ROSY LIPS AND CHEEKS
WITHIN HIS BENDING SICKLE’S COMPASS COME:
LOVE ALTERS NOT WITH HIS BRIEF HOURS AND WEEKS,
BUT BEARS IT OUT EVEN TO THE EDGE OF DOOM.

IF THIS BE ERROR AND UPON ME PROVED,
I NEVER WRIT, NOR NO MAN EVER LOVED.
Track Name: Damberd Ballad
WE ARE JUST LIVING IN DREAM AND TASTES,
WHY DO YOU WANT US TO READ YOUR LINES?

IN DAMBERD TONIGHT IS FULL OF ARTIFICIAL ARTISTS,
AS YOU CAN SEE YOU’RE NOT THE ONLY ONE,

HOLD ON, HOLD ON NOW, HOLD ON,
YOU AREN’T LESS THAN ANYONE,

AND SO FAR THE ROOMS OF LOVE
ARE FULL OF VOICES BUT
YOU DON’T HEAR ANYTHING
AND SO FAR THE ROOMS OF LOVE
ARE FULL OF PARTIES BUT
YOU DON’T FEEL ANYTHING,

AND EVERYBODY IS INVITED EXCEPT FOR YOU,
YES EVERYBODY EXCEPT FOR YOU.

YOU SMOKE A CIGARETTE
IN A LAZY WAY,
CIRCLES AND VERSES AROUND YOUR MIND,

YOU NEED SOME TIME TO THINK
WHAT YOU WANT TO BECOME,

SOMETIMES YOU’RE SAD
BUT YOU SHOULDN’T LOOK BACK.

AND STOP THINKING TOO MUCH

AND SO FAR THE ROOMS OF LOVE
ARE FULL OF VOICES BUT
YOU DON’T HEAR ANYTHING
AND SO FAR THE ROOMS OF LOVE
ARE FULL OF PARTIES BUT
YOU DON’T FEEL ANYTHING.
Track Name: Far and further
WE’VE WALKED INSIDE THIS ROOM
AND THIS ROOM WAITS FOR US,
A PIECE OF ETERNITY BLOWS
LITTLE BY LITTLE YOUR TIME,

YOU SPEAK WITH THE EYES IT’S TRUE
THE BEST ANSWER NOW,
IS THIS SILENCE,
THE BEST TRUTH IS THE MOMENT
AS OUR CLOTHES FALL DOWN.

I’VE TRAVELLED FAR AND WIDE,
FURTHER THAN,
THE COLOURED SEAS, FURTHER THAN
THE LOVELY DAWNS,

AND IN THE NORTH COUNTRY
THERE’S AN ANSWER THERE’S A TRUTH,
I CAN NEVER WIN,
BUT I WILL TRY AT LEAST,

I KNOW WHAT YOU SHOULD DO,
YOU WATCH ME NOW,
WHAT DO YOU SEE?
MY EYES ARE BROWN
AND YOURS ARE SAILING,

WE’VE WALKED INSIDE THIS ROOM,
I WISH YOU WERE HERE,
CAUSE I JUST TAKE OFF ALL MY CLOTHES,
AND BURN IN YOUR HUG,

YOU CAN TELL ME NOW
THE FEELINGS THAT YOU KEEP,

YOU CAN NEVER WIN,
BUT YOU WILL TRY AT LEAST,
I KNOW WHAT YOU SHOULD DO,

YOU WATCH ME NOW,
WHAT DO YOU SEE,
MY EYES ARE BROWN
AND YOURS ARE BEAUTIFUL,

I HAVE SOME TIMES TOO MANY MEMORIES, LIKE,

WHY AM I SO ALONE
UNDER A RAVEN SKY?

I KNOW THE TOWN IS BEAUTIFUL,
AND THE CHIMES ARE HORN,
BUT I’M KISSING THE DARK
IN SINT LIEVENSPOORTSTRAAT.
Track Name: She left my heart and the light shines
SHE LEFT MY HEART,
NOW I’M STRANGER THAN A RAINBOW
IN THE WIND,

I FEEL SAD AND DEAD,
LIFE CAN’T HEAR ME BUT I CAN TOUCH
THE WINTER TREES,

IT’S WHEN THE LIGHT SHINES
I’M GOIN’ DOWN TO THE DARKNESS
OF YOUR HEART,

IT’S WHEN THE WIND STOPS
I’M GOIN’ DOWN AND I TAKE
ALL WHAT I CAN.
AND I WON’T BE BACK HERE AGAIN.

I HAVE REALLY NO HOME,
NO WAY OR SORROW,
ALL THAT I NEED
IS TO BREAK HER SKY,

THERE’S NO HERO IN THE MEMORY,
ONCE IN THE STAR OF LOVELY TRIES;

SWEET SORROW COMES,

IT’S WHEN THE LIGHT SHINES
I’M GOIN’ DOWN TO THE DARKNESS
OF THY HEART,

IT’S WHEN THE WIND STOPS
I’M GOIN’ DOWN AND I TAKE
ALL WHAT I CAN.
AND I WON’T BE BACK HERE AGAIN.
Track Name: El Do
AMB LA MATEIXA MIRADA COM DESPULLA LA TARDOR
ENS DEIXEN ELS TEUS FANTASMES
DEL SEU PAÍS D’IL·LUSIONS

I A L’ESQUENA CARREGUEN PORTS
MARS I VELERS,
LES HISTÒRIES O MENTIDES PODEN SER TAN REALS
COM EL NOSTRE MÓN QUE S’ESTRENY
AMB LA PARTIDA,

COM EL NOSTRE MÓN TAN TRIST
QUAN TE’N VAS,

QUI CANTARÀ ALS PIRATES QUE CONEIXIES TAN BÉ?
QUI INVOCARÀ PARAULES D’UN PASSAT D’INNOCENTS?

QUÈ SE SENT EN CONÈIXER TANTES MITGES VERITATS?
QUÈ SE SENT EN CANTAR-LES I EN RESPOSTA

REBRE TANTES ABRAÇADES QUE SEMBLAVES
REI DEL MAR,
MÉS QUE EL JOGLAR QUE HAS ESTAT?
QUAN TE’N VAS,

DÓNA’M EL DO
DE DIBUIXAR
EL PAÍS ON VULL VIURE,
EL PAÍS ON VULL MORIR.
Track Name: The Ghent Season
THE MUSIC WILL BRING US
WHAT WE SEEMED TO DESIRE,
AND WE HAD LONG DESIRED
ALL THESE THINGS,

THE SENSATIONS ARE READY
TO BE OPENED NOW,
AND THE KEY IS RIGHT HERE
WHEN YOU’RE DOWN ON
YOUR KNEES,

AND AFTER ALL THE ANCIENT CITY WILL
MAKES US FREE,
AND DON’T YOU KNOW IT’S YOUR LIGHT
THAT MAKES ME BELIEVE,
WITH YOUR ANSWERS
WITH YOUR MYSTERIES,

AND WE BELONG TO THE GHENT SEASON
AND WE KNOW WE’LL DRINK ALONG,
AND WE’VE TOUCHED BEAUTY
EVERY TIME WE’VE KISSED,
OUR LAKES OUR SHORES ARE ONE,

AND IT’S ALRIGHT NOW.

LET YOUR HORSE RIDE YOUR SOUL
FAR AWAY,
AND KEEP YOUR CONSCIENCE
FAR FROM EVERY PAIN,

‘CAUSE YOU CAN CLOSE THE EYES
AND SEE THE EMPTINESS
AS IF PLEASURE MIGHT PERSIST.
AND YOUR EYES SHINE NOW
WITHOUT MYSTERIES.

AND AFTER ALL THE ANCIENT CITY WILL
MAKES US FREE,
AND DON’T YOU KNOW IT’S YOUR LIGHT
THAT MAKES ME BELIEVE,

AND WE BELONG TO THE GHENT SEASON
AND WE KNOW WE’LL DRINK ALONG,
AND WE’VE TOUCHED BEAUTY
EVERY TIME WE’VE KISSED,
OUR LAKES OUR SHORES ARE ONE,
WE ARE BETTER NOW.

AND WE BELONG TO THE GHENT SEASON
AND WE KNOW WE’LL DRINK ALONG,
AND WE’VE TOUCHED BEAUTY
EVERY TIME WE’VE KISSED,
OUR LAKES OUR SHORES ARE ONE,
WE ARE GOING HOME.
Track Name: O me (Sonnet 148)
O ME! WHAT EYES HATH LOVE PUT IN MY HEAD
WHICH HAVE NO CORRESPONDENCE WITH TRUE SIGHT:
OR IF THEY HAVE, WHERE IS MY JUDGEMENT FLED,
THAT CENSURES FALSELY WHAT THEY SEE ARIGHT?

IF THAT BE FAIR WHEREON MY FALSE EYES DOTE,
WHAT MEANS THE WORLD TO SAY IT IS NOT SO?
IF IT BE NOT, THEN LOVE DOTH WELL DENOTE
LOVE’S EYE IS NOT SO TRUE AS ALL MEN’S;

NO, HOW CAN IT? O HOW CAN LOVE’S EYE BE TRUE,
THAT IS SO VEX’D WITH WATCHING AND WITH TEARS?
NO MARVEL THEN THOUGH I MISTAKE MY VIEW;
THE SUN ITSELF SEES NOT TILL HEAVEN CLEARS,

O CUNNING LOVE! WITH TEARS THOU KEEP’ST ME BLIND,
LEST EYES WELL-SEEING THY FOUL FAULTS SHOULD FIND!
Track Name: A Valediction Forbbiding Mourning
AS VIRTUOUS MEN PASS MIDLY AWAY,
AND WHISPER TO THEIR SOULS TO GO,
WHILST SOME OF THEIR SAD FREINDS DO SAY,
“NOW HIS BREATH GOES”, AND SOME SAY: “NO”.

SO LETS US MELT, AND MAKE NO NOISE,
NO TEAR-FLOODS, NOR SIGH-TEMPESTS MOVE;
“TWERE PROFANATION OF OUR JOYS
TO TELL THE LAITY OUR LOVE.

MOVING OF THE EARTH BRINGS HARMS AND FEARS,
MEN RECKON WHAT IT DID AND MEANT;
BUT TREPIDATION OF THE SPHERES,
THOUGH GREATER FAR, IS INNOCENT.

DULL SUBLUNARY LOVERS’ LOVE
(WHOSE SOUL IS SENSE) CANNOT ADMIT
OF ABSENCE, BECAUSE IT DOTH REMOVE
THOSE THINGS WHICH ELEMENTED IT.

BUT WE, BY A LOVE SO MUCH REFINED
THAT OURSELVES KNOW NOT WHAT IT IS,
INTER-ASSURED OF THE MIND,
CARE LESS, EYES, LIPS, AND HANDS TO MISS.

OUR TWO SOULS THEREFORE, WHICH ARE ONE,
THOUGH I MUST GO, ENDURE NOT YET
A BREACH, BUT AN EXPANSION.
LIKE GOLD TO AIRY THINNESS BEAT.

IF THEY BE TWO, THEY ARE TWO SO
AS STIFF TWIN COMPASSE ARE TWO:
THY SOUL, THE FIXED FOOT, MAKES NO SHOW
TO MOVE, BUT DOTH, IF THE OTHER DO;

AND THOUGH IT IN THE CENTRE SIT,
YET WHEN THE OTHER FAR DOTH ROAM,
IT LEANS AND HEARKENS AFTER IT,
AND GROW ERECT, AS THAT COMES HOME.

SUCH WILT THOU BE TO ME, WHO MUST,
LIKE THE OTHER FOOT, OBLIQUELY RUN;
THY FIRMNESS MAKES MY CIRCLE JUST,
AND MAKES ME END WHERE I BEGUN.
Track Name: Dream of a Blessed Spirit
ALL THE HEAVY DAYS ARE OVER;
LEAVE THE BODY’S COLOURED PRIDE
UNDERNEATH THE GRASS AND CLOVER,
WITH THE FEET LAID SIDE BY SIDE.

ONE WITH HER ARE MIRTH AND DUTY;
BEAR THE GOLD-EMBROIDERED DRESS,
FOR SHE NEEDS NOT HER SAD BEAUTY,
TO THE SCENTED OAKEN PRESS.

HERS THE KISS OF MOTHER MARY,
THE LONG HAIR IS ON HER FACE;
STILL SHE GOES WITH FOOTSTEPS WARY
FULL OF EARTH’S OLD TIMID GRACE.

WITH WHITE FEET OF ANGELS SEVEN
HER WHITE FEET GO GLIMMERING;
AND ABOVE THE DEEP OF HEAVEN,
FLAME ON FLAME, AND WING ON WING.
Track Name: La Noia de l'Astrolabi
PRIMER VA SER DE NIT, EN UN BAR DE LA CIUTAT,
FUMANT FUMS DE POETES, ON PRÍNCEPS NO PODEN ENTRAR,

LA VAIG VEURE ADORMIDA, EN UN RACÓ I AMB ULLS CLARS,
LA VAIG VEURE ADORMIDA, NI TAN SOLS EM VA MIRAR,

DIGUE’M SI SERÀ PER SEMPRE O SI S’ACABARÀ.
VAIG TROBAR A LES BUTXAQUES MONEDES I PAPERS,

PAPERS AMB PARAULES I RESTES D’ORGULL DESFET,
VA FIXAR-SE EN MI, MENTRE JO TANCAVA ELS ULLS,

I DESPRÉS DE PERDRE-LA, AQUELLA NIT DE SOMNIS BUITS,
DIGUE’M SI SERÀ PER SEMPRE O SI S’ACABARÀ,

DIGUE’M SI ET TINDRÉ PER SEMPRE O SI TE N’ANIRÀS,
LA VAIG TROBAR UNS MESOS MÉS TARD I LA VAIG ESTIMAR,

ABRAÇAR-LA ERA TENDRE, I TAMBÉ DONAR-LI EL MAR,
HAVIA DE MARXAR LLUNY DE LES MEVES MANS,
SI CREUES LES FRONTERES SEMPRE EM PODRÀS TROBAR

DIGUE’M SI SERÀ PER SEMPRE O SI S’ACABARÀ,
DIGUE’M SI ET TINDRÉ PER SEMPRE O SI TE N’ANIRÀS.
