Track Name: Intro~
Oh, hello
How are you?
Are you ready?
Its Mild Orange.


So you want me to stay?
But I should go…
Oh lead me astray where I know.

‘Cause you got me in circles
And I just don’t know what to do

Explode…
Track Name: ~Outro (feat. B.)
Going back to the way we knew,
We never really knew that you knew how.
Well I’m sure that you felt before
And you never really had the doubt
That I hold a place in your heart
You solved the special place in my arms

[B.]
I roll deep - like the ocean
No hurry, no fuss, no commotion
My love, my devotion
Rolls deep like the ocean
Rolls deep like the ocean.
The funk-jazz style kinda motion
Rip, split, splatter
I look at her
Feelings scattered,
Offered on a platter
Chit-chatter
Forget the latter.
In the end, does it even matter?
Track Name: Stranger
Oh I’m a stranger to you girl
For two more minutes
Yes its true
Then you may see
That you know that you want us to be
Oh you and me
Looking for love what will be done?
Oh you’ll see

A stranger to you

Oh I’m a stranger to you girl
Oh look at me
The things we’ll see
I see me with you
You know it’s me
Oh dreams are free
Looking for love what will be done?
Oh it’s me

A stranger to you
‘Cause you know its you
Lucky you

Oh I’m a stranger to you girl
Yes its true
Looking for love
What have we done?
Oh it’s true
Yeah me and you
Then you may see
That you know that you want it to be
Track Name: Some Feeling
[Introduction - B.]
Hello again
Remember me?
We were making love…
But just getting started
This is ‘Foreplay’.

Yeah I’ve been looking for some feeling
But you’ve been looking other ways
Yeah I’ve been holding for some time now
And you’ve been going astray.

Yeah I’ve been holding on for way too long
Trying to solve it all
And holding on forever
Oh, to learn

Yeah you’ve been on a different wavelength
And I just don’t know what to do
But every time I see you yeah
You’re getting me all confused

Yeah I’ve been trying this for way too long
Trying to solve it all
And holding on forever
Oh, to learn

It seems some things don’t change
And I don’t know why
But every time I see you, yeah
Ouuhhh…

‘Cause you been on another wavelength
While I’ve looking for some feeling
‘Cause I’ve waiting on…
I’ve been waiting for…
…Waiting for you.
Track Name: Mysight
I see everything
That lies in front of me
When you’re getting near
That’s just when I disappear

Well hold on - 'Cause you know there’s
All these things inside my head
I told you I don’t know
I don’t know why these feelings show
But it’s all good

No you can’t change the past
You know it’ll never last
You can fight for these things
You can do what you will
But in the end you know,
It doesn’t even really matter

'Cause I see everything
That lies in front of me
I told you I don’t know
I don’t know why these feelings show
But it’s all good

No – you can’t change the past
You know it’ll never last
You can fight for these things
You can do what you will
But in the end you know,
It doesn’t even really matter

'Cause I told you not to wait
'Cause I made the same mistake
I made it for myself
Now I do just what I do
'Cause I do it all for you
Listen here

'Cause I told you not to wait
Now you fall the same
Oh listen here
'Cause it's alright
Track Name: Down By The River
Down by the river
I lay sculptures for you
For you it doesn’t matter
I’ll wait for you

And down by the mountainside
I build snowmen for you
For you it doesn’t matter
I’ll wait for you

‘Cause you’ll be gone for a few
And I will wait two
For you…
It doesn’t matter how long I wait for you

And I’ll wait for you
You know its true
Track Name: Selfish Lover
Well I swear to God that I need ya
And all your little quirks too
Well after all, it’s what made me fall for you
Yeah I’m quite strange too

Well I’ll think of the places you want to go
Yeah I’m thinking tomorrow
Oh and where are we going to steer this ship?
‘Cause without you I can’t handle it

Well maybe I’m a selfish lover, huh
The last heart you’ll uncover
Or maybe you’re a selfish lover, huh?
And I’ll never love no other

Or maybe I’m a selfish lover, huh
And you’ll never love no other
Or maybe you’re a selfish lover, huh?
The last heart I’ll uncover
Track Name: Losing Time
(Time…)

You hardly find
In your mind
The time to
Relax and recline and unwind
The time to
See and fly
As though your life
Is loved living in two

Sink or swim,
Then you will
Find that
You can provide in your mind
The things to
Think and find
In your life
You love living in tune

Losing time
You’re moving through my mind
I know
Come on baby
Lets get crazy,
Shake me I know
Oh maybe there’s a reason
You could call this home
Then you’ll see in time
That I will know

You hardly find
In your mind
The time to
Relax and recline and unwind
The time to
Losing flight,
Though you’re life
You love living in two

Sink or swim,
Then you will
Find that
You can rewind
Through your mind
To think to losing time,
Though your life
You loved living in tune

You hardly find
In your mind
The time to
Relax and recline and unwind
The time to
Losing flight
As though your life
You loved living in two

Sink or swim,
Then you will
Find that
You can rewind
Through your mind
To think to losing time
Though your life
You love living in two

Losing time
Losing touch
Yeah you find,
Yeah you feel
That you’ve arrived
Into your mind
Losing time
Track Name: In The Living Room
Hello
Come on in…
Go ahead…
The living room.

You fly
You rise
You cry
You sigh

You fly
You rise
You fly
You sigh

You rise
You fly
In the living room
You fly
In the living room
You sigh
Track Name: Where Are We Now?
I will sail oceans
Just to see your face again
And I took a breath underwater
To lie on your side

But where are we now?
‘Cause it’s not over
But where are we now?
‘Cause it’s not over

Yeah I saw lots of things
Frozen lakes inside frozen seas

But where are we now?
‘Cause it’s not over
Where are we now?
‘Cause it’s not over

But where are we now?
‘Cause it’s not over
Where are we now?
‘Cause it’s not over
Where are we now?
‘Cause it’s not over
Where are we now?
‘Cause it’s not over
Track Name: Terandara
Many moons across my sky today
Feel the rain
Forces lie on bays all painted grey
Feel today
