Track Name: Medea
I have missed the blossom on the trees beside the avenue,
Where I have walked in tangled roads of sadness all for you,
And services rendered,
For disappointment, disillusion, and your words meant
Nothing to me, anyway.

And this wild love has consumed me,
And all of your pleas will not sway me,
But I will weep until my eyes do not see,
But at least, my love, your pain will have set me free.

Oh but you were just a body in the night,
A hand to clasp in desperation in the morning light,
And memories left to me now,
Are bound all up in twine, with words I have uttered in vain,
Intruding on your peace of mind,

And this wild love has consumed me,
And all of your pleas will not sway me,
But I will weep until my eyes do not see,
But at least, my love, your pain will have set me free.

Oh lover, we have been blind,
Dust motes dancing in our eyes,
So leave me, go on your way,
But don't for one moment think I will stay.

And your wild love has consumed me,
And all of your tears have assuaged me,
So I will run, and leave my grief at your door,
But at least, my love, the pain will be yours no more.
Track Name: Leaving
Oh my lover, sweetest one,
You must stay, whilst I will run,
Do you hear the train wheels rolling in my ears?

Oh I must depart,
And you must stay strong of heart,
But, darling, leave a month or so
'Til you forget the stitches we have sowed.
Track Name: Waking
I met him once, and loved him, that is all,
Both rusty hearts were shattered from the fall,
And we could see the glory flee
From the truth of our love growing old.

The endless weary days we spent alone,
And firelight on skin under the gloam,
The flowing light of sun and sky
Will replace all the hatred we've known.

But do you know these shining lanes and towers?
I was not the only one, I too was overpowered,
But we made our decisions in the cold light of day,
And we stayed, and we swayed, and forgave.

The warmth we share is tangled, troubled, and torn,
Our years, our past, our sweetnesses,
Yet no remorse I hold,
And I will awake from a dream of gold,
And I'll wait for the years to unfold.
