Track Name: Will Love Grow?
Maybe you have a lover waiting for you
and she's the reason for all that you do
But the way you're looking over at me
has me believing we could be lovers too
Ah ah ah, Ah ah ah, Ah ah ah

Don't tell me your secrets I don't want to know
where are the darkest parts of your soul
I wonder how you feel in a tender caress
and could you bring me happiness
Ah ah ah, Ah ah ah, Ah ah ah

Well I may never see you again
You may become my dearest friend
Who knows, who knows
Whether love will grow who knows

Ah ah ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah

So I smile at you as you pass on by
Cause who knows you may be the love of my life
Who knows you may be the love of my life

Ah ah ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah
Who knows
Track Name: Lovely Isabel
In an old house she sits
With a book in her hand
One candle lit penning her plans

Writes I want adventure and I want romance
I'm gonna run this world someday
Soon as I get the chance

Along comes a strapping young man
Says just as you wish Madame
Here I am, here I am
Pretty young thing you'll be easy to love
With your wide-eyed stare and Anne Gregory hair
It's just a shame you don't see the truth
It's just a shame you've wasted your fleeting youth
On things that will always remain the same

Lovely Isabel thinks she knows so well
Why the earth spins and the apple fell
Lovely Isabel thinks she knows so well

Well poor jaded man you have it all wrong
I don't care if you love me or my yellow hair
Just so long as I'm on your mind
I'll be fine I'll be fine
So if you don't understand me
It's not because I'm young
You see I, I was written in a foreign tongue

Well the world didn't turn the way she thought it would
People didn't see the change she believed they could

So in her rage she threw her book to the wall
Hoping from the page the words would fall
Well that old house creaked and it rattled the door
But from that book leaked one story more

Lovely Isabel you thought you knew so well
Why I spin and the apple fell
Lovely Isabel there are secrets I'll never tell

Mm, mm, mm
Mm, mm, mm

It's coming to an end now my good friend
You've walked a long way
Don't look so sad darling
I warned you things would not change

Still she cried and she cried cause no one cared
That the pretty girl with the yellow hair
Was lying cold there
Track Name: Siren
Siren sing me a song
Save me from these rocks
The waters are eating my heart
I'm being pulled to the underworld

I know loves done you wrong
So now you keep yourself under lock
The waters have stolen your heart
And now you belong to the underworld

But beautiful maiden of the sea
Let me show you how nice love can be
If you allow my ship safely to shore
I swear only you I shall adore

Sailor I've seen many lands
And been promised love by many a man
Your words are nothing new to me

I'm merely a maiden of remorse
You won't find love on my shores
You won't find love on my shores

I'll guide you safely by the light of this song
But to one man I shall never belong
Yes I'll guide you safely by the light of this song
But to one man I shall never belong

So sail on safely to the shore
There lives a pretty haired girl
And I know that she will be adored
Yes I know that she will be adored
Track Name: The Name of Sin
Did you like it when I danced for you
With my lips painted red?
Did you like it when I danced for you
And came alive in your bed?

Cause I tried so hard to be what you desired
But you never tried at all to be whom I admired
Hid us away in the dark
If as they say making love is an art
Why do I feel so ugly?

Kiss my body, kill my soul
When did I get so old?
When did I get so old?

I never loved you but I love you all the same
And you never loved me but I guess that's the game
Cause pleasure is knowing the name of sin
And still longingly calling out to him
As I call to you, as I call to

Kiss my body and kill my soul
When did I get so cold?
When did I get cold?

If you thought I was a real woman back then
Baby you really had no clue
Cause I was just a little girl
Tryna be a woman for you
Oh I was just a little girl
Trying to be woman enough for you

Did you ever feel bad
For taking something I never knew I had?
Did you ever feel bad?
Did you ever feel bad?

As you kissed my body and killed my soul
When did you get so cold?
When did you get so cold?

There you go with a new one in tow
Bet she's as naive as me
There you go with a new one in tow
She'll pay for what she gives away free
Yes she'll pay for what she gives away
I paid for what I gave away
But you'll pay the most
For what you take away
Oh you'll pay the most honey

Kiss her body kill my soul
We all come to know
Kiss my body kill her soul
Him by the name of sin
Track Name: Tale of a Troubadour
There is a man who has travelled many lands
He sings of what he sees and the people he meets
Through his song you can travel along
Across the lines of time

Oh there is the pharaoh and his concubine
There sits Mary with her lover divine

Can you see it?
Can you hear it?
The tale of the troubadour
The tale of the troubadour

Smell the spices of the West
Breathe in the seas of the East
Put to your mouth this moveable feast
But be wary not to feed the beast
Be wary not to feed the beast

Can you feel it?
Can you hear it?
The tale of the troubadour
The tale of the troubadour

Oh and he weaves world's words in a wondrous way
Listens to what the skies have to say
Travel on troubadour
Travel on travel on
Travel on troubadour
Travel on

Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah

There over the mountain side
Stands a man singing far and wide
There over the mountain side
Stands a man singing far and wide
Can you hear him?
Can you hear him?
Track Name: The Lost Years
It ends as it began
Whenever that was
Won't bore you with the story
I'd rather get buzzed

I know that is not profound
but there is not a single sound
That would explain the depths of my pain to you

I've lost my best years to my fears
And now father time owns the greatest regrets of mine
Oh father time owns the greatest regrets of mine

Spring is in the air
I can feel it in my lungs
And I know there
Are many songs to be sung
But not till this one's done
Not till this one's done

This melody is all there is
This melody is all there is
This melody is all there is

You've lost your best years to your fears
And now father time owns the greatest regrets of mine
Oh father time owns the greatest regrets of mine

The words on my lips and ink on my fingertips
All lead to regret
The words on my lips and ink on my fingertips
Won't let me forget

That this melody is all there is
This melody is all there is
This melody is all there is

So sing it in your proudest of voices
This is the product of all of your choices
This melody is all there is
