Track Name: Rise
Broken heart, broken head, broken ice,
Broken like a Cinderella slipper,
Dashed like a fallen shooting star,
Open up your mouth like a secret,
Out pour broken diamonds splinter in your heart.

Dashed a thousand hopes, a thousand loves, a thousand dreams.
Fragile is the glass that holds your image.

Rise, arise, rise, arise.
Gather up the splinters to re-create your eyes.
Rise.

Not every card of death only shows the end.
Not every hurtful laugh is the honesty of friends.
Rise.

Girl. Phoenix, phoenix. Girl. Phoenix, phoenix.

Let the fire take hold. Let the fire take hold.
Throw the bones. Throw the bones.
Ash to gold. Ash to gold.

Rise. Arise.

You were running, running scared.
You were running, running scared.
So you beat out your heart,
So you beat out your heart.

Rise, arise.
Rise, arise.
Rise.
Track Name: Rainbow Moon
I let the pieces fall away, try to catch them in my hands:
Paper birds to the wind,
Pluck a feather from the tail,
To adorn my hair in pictures of the past,
and times that have never been.

I have no regrets, tears mixed into the rain.
The wolf cries but the moon comes round again.
Petals from a flower heart carried by the river -
maybe it could carry me on a raft made up of memories.
Time may pull me forward,
but the waves they roll me back again.
I'll splash my reflection and turn my face to a night sky.

Think I'm looking for a rainbow moon,
Think I'm looking for a rainbow moon.

How deep can you swim before the sun comes up again?
Do you fear sea monsters in the quiet, in the shallows?
There are voices on the air,
They call for you to follow.
Or was that just the echo of a song that you sang long ago?

Think I'm looking for a rainbow moon.
Think I'm looking for a rainbow moon.
Track Name: Bambino
White haired lady waits in the garden,
Drawing aside the curtain,
She is smiling for me,
Smiling for me and my lover.

Chestnuts grow in the garden,
The caterpillar climbs to the highest leaf:

Papillon, papillon,
Papillon, papillon.

I hold a little bird caught in my hands,
Little heart beats so fast,
Away you want to fly,
To stand with your family on the wire,
But you are not ready yet, my little bird.

Little bird, little bird,
Little bird, little bird.

Lovely lady walks in her garden,
Rocking her babe in her arms,
Her face turned toward the sun.
She is smiling for me,
Smiling for me and my lover.
Sunflowers grow in the garden,
The flowers reach up toward the light.

Bambino, bambino,
Bambino, bambino.

I hold your spirit little flower, inside of me.

I hold a promise to you.
You are a promise to me.
