Track Name: Sea Shell Rock Me
Sea shell rock me,
Sea shell rock me to my sleep in my dreams,
For another day.

Have you seen the sun,
Makes me feel at one with everything.

Sea Shell sway me,
Sea Shell sway me like the wind sways the trees,
on a restless day.

Dancing in the sun,
Like a child I run back to you.


Spring is changing she is waving
Her many coloured arms at me,
And the sights and the sounds run down over my eyes,
And the memories and the places will hypnotize me.


Cos I love you,
Cos I love you like the sun loves the wind,
On a restless day.

Dancing in the sun,
Watch me as I run back to you.
Track Name: White Angel
In your eyes sunrise, all the colours of a new day.
In your hair, sunswept, does reflect the glimmer of a warm sun.

And you gaze out your window from an empty room,
wondering which way to turn.
But the night has given you new eyes to see,
your future by the light of the moon.

You see a world there... in a grain of sand,
You see a heaven... in a flower,
You see the future... in the sky,
You see a rainbow... in your mind.

Whatever colours are in your mind, I will paint them for you,
Red, green, blue and yellow, red, green, blue and yellow,
Red, green, blue and yellow;
White angel, mistress of my dreams,
Many times I have asked you this before;
Show me the lessons of mood...

Track Name: Swan in the Evening
In the darkness of the night,
I will sing this song for you.

When the swan in the evening moves o’er the day,
And the sun and the moon are one and the same,
All on the light, pray for me.

In the golden ashes of the dawn loves rises,
And though the shadow of the night before fails your heart.
Though you don’t reveal another love that lies,
It moves in your body it glows in your eyes.

Bird is gone will make my mind to wander,
In fantasy into the forests of folklore.
Well I can dance and sing,
With the dwarf and the elvin king.


In the darkness of your dreams,
I will come to you.

When the swan in the evening moves o’er the day,
And the sun and the moon are one and the same,
All on the light, pray to me.

Phoenix she is gone in the ashes of dawn,
You fly your love so high you wish you were down.
Well I can dance and sing,
And stand naked under the sun……under the sun,
…under the sun...
Track Name: Sing on the Sunlight
Outside the people fast on their holy day,
Inside the vicar and the lords dine on the gifts that the peasants brought;
But they wont bless, but they wont bless,
They know not how to give, they know not how to love,
And they won’t rest their ways.

The spring is changing the flowers in my field,
A million colours floating through the field,
And the winter its magic is waxing,
And the sun is giving its energy to me,
Giving to me,

Sing a song sing on the sunlight, sing a song sing on the sun,
Sing a song sing on the sunlight, sing a song sing on the sun,
Sing a song sing on the sunlight, sing a song sing on the sun,
Sing a song sing on the sunlight, sing a song sing on the sun,
Sing on the sun.


Ring a ring a-rosies the gentry with their posies,
Trot down rotten row watch them go;
But they wont bless, but they wont bless,
They know not how to give, they know not how to love,
And they won’t rest their ways.

Sing a song sing on the sunlight, sing a song sing on the sun,
Sing a song sing on the sunlight, sing a song sing on the sun,
Sing a song sing on the sunlight, sing a song sing on the sun,
Sing a song sing on the sunlight, sing a song sing on the sun,
Sing a song sing on the sunlight, sing a song sing on the sun,
Sing a song sing on the sunlight, sing a song sing on the sun,
Sing a song sing on the sunlight, sing a song sing on the sun
Track Name: Sea Shell Rock Me (alternate version)
Sea shell rock me,
Sea shell rock me to my sleep in my dreams,
For another day.

Have you seen the sun,
Makes me feel at one with everything.

Sea Shell sway me,
Sea Shell sway me like the wind sways the trees,
on a restless day.

Dancing in the sun,
Like a child I run back to you.


Spring is changing she is waving
Her many coloured arms at me,
And the sights and the sounds run down over my eyes,
And the memories and the places will hypnotize me.


Cos I love you,
Cos I love you like the sun loves the wind,
On a restless day.

Dancing in the sun,
Watch me as I run back to you.
Track Name: Earlie in the Morning
As I was travelling out one day; Earlie in the morning,
I met a maiden beneath the tree; Earlie in the morning.
Young man she said why don’t you stay, I can see no law or reason.
I cannot said I for I’m pledged to the winds and the sky;
Earlie in the morning.


As I was travelling out one night; Earlie in the evening,
I met the full moon shining bright; Earlie in the evening.
Young maid I say, will you always, be my constant mistess.
I cannot said she I am pledged to the tides and the sea;
Earlie in the evening.


As I was travelling out one day; Earlie in the morning,
I met a maiden beneath the tree; Earlie in the morning.
Young man she said why don’t you stay, we could spend the night together.
So I did and I would, yes I’d do it again for the pleasure...
Of the lay - ay - ay..... of the lay - ay - ay,
Of the lay.
