Track Name: If I Give You Everything
If I give you everything
Will you open your heart and let me in
If I give you everything
Throwing my soul against the wind
Would you let me sing
My inside out
All the love within,
If I give you everything
If I give you everything

If I give you everything
All of my dreams and hidden fear
If I give you everything
My craziest laugh and saddest tear
Would your feelings grow
The more you know
Would they disappear
If I give you everything
If I give you everything

She stares at the mirror
She's seen that face so many times before,
She knows every line, every pore,
Poor souls been tattered,
She's been round and round but still some how,
You hear her say...

If I give you everything
Will you open your heart and let me in
If I give you everything
Throwing my soul against the wind
Would you let me sing
My inside out
All the love within,
If I give you everything
If I give you everything...
Track Name: Can I Reach You
Can I reach you,
Are you there?
Can reach you
Do you care?
Can I reach you
If I let down my hair,
If I sit here and stare..

Can I reach you
If I try?
Can I reach you
If I cry?
Can I reach you
If I show you my eyes
If I wear my disguise
Can I reach you?

What'll it be
Longing or sorrow?
What'll it be
Beauty or light?
What'll it be
Honesty, passion?
What'll it be
Tonight..

Can you hear me
Through the dark?
Can you hear me
Where you are ?
Can you hear me
How I give you my soul
How I swallow you whole
Can you hear me?

What'll it be
Frailty or anger?
What'll it be
Purity or pride?
What'll it be
Sanity, madness?
What'll it be...

Can I reach you
With my voice?
Can I reach you
With my words?
Can I reach you
With my dreams..

Will I be happy?

What'll it be
Longing or sorrow?
What'll it be
Beauty or light?
What'll it be
Honesty, passion?
What'll it be
Tonight..

What'll it be
Frailty or anger?
What'll it be
Purity or pride?
What'll it be
Sanity, madness?
What'll it be?
Track Name: Explain the Night
Explain the night to me
Explain the stars
Explain the way I feel
Explain the scars
Explain the outline of the trees against the sky
Explain the tangled words of love we can?t untie

Explain the night to me
Explain the black
And how the light was lost
And how to get it back
Explain the rising of the waves to swallow sand
Explain how difficult it is to hold your hand

We are wrapped around our needing
In a drunken trance
Will you swing and sway me slowly
And pretend to dance
We are wrapped around our sorrow
In a strong embrace
And between your temple and your eye I hide my face

Explain the night to me
The pregnant moon
Explain the sudden urge
The empty room
Explain the way to blue
And all the space
Explain the makeup swiftly streaked across my face

Explain the night to me
Explain the past
Explain the thrill of love
And why it cannot last
Explain the rings that slowly spread across the lake
And how to someday learn to live with my mistakes

We are wrapped around our needing
In a drunken trance
Will you swing and sway me slowly
And pretend to dance

We are wrapped around our sorrow
In a strong embrace
And between your temple and your eye I hide my face.
Track Name: Home-Made Religion
Stop.
It's 3:15
You have one minute.
Are you ready?

Now think of all things created
Think of those that you care for
Think of what you've been blessed with
And everything that makes you afraid

Wish for anything
Let yourself dream
Wish for things to get better
Until 3:16

There's a stone in my garden that keeps me committed
And close to the ground when I feel I should run
There's a branch in my window that helps me remember
To reach out my arms and touch the sun..

There are two million ants that live in my sidewalk
Working together to nurture and feed
And the old TV set, with the sad evening news
So I never forget how much love we need

Home-made religion
(In my kitchen)
Home-made religion..

Think of how you've been feeling
And how you've made others feel
Think of what you've been given
And what you need to heal

Wish for anything..
Try to keep still
Wish for things to get better
And maybe they will


There's a plant in the corner that helps me remember
All of the beauty that grows from a seed
And the old TV set, with the sad evening news
So I never forget how much love we need

Home-made religion
(In my kitchen)
Home-made religion..

Stop.
Track Name: Wrap it Up With Love
Every moment we decide
What to open, what to hide
Every moment we decide
How to live our lives

Every moment we can learn
How to better understand
Who to follow, where to turn
How to find a friend

I?ll wrap it with love
Every day and night
Wrap it up with love
Watch it fill with light
Wrap it up with love
Every way is right .

Wrap it up with love, love, love..

Every moment we grow old
Trust in no one, so were told
I won?t live my life in fear
Rather disappear

Wrap it up with love
Every day and night
Wrap it up with love
Watch it fill with light
Wrap it up with love
Every way is right

Wrap it up with love, love, love..
Track Name: Angel
Angel with a broken wing
Never leaves the ground
Angel, trying hard to sing
But she can't make a decent sound.

Angel with a broken wing
Feeling so alone
Angel, she's tried everything
But she can't find her way back home.

So she wanders in disguise
With a longing in her eyes
And she looks up to the skies
But there's nothing there but grey
She looks down and turns away...

Angel with a broken wing
In our neighborhood
Angel, look how things turn bad
When you're so busy being good

So she wanders in disguise
With a longing in her eyes
And she looks up to the skies
But there's nothing there but grey
She looks down and turns away...

Angel with a broken wing
Feeling so alone
Angel, she's tried everything
But she can't find her way back home.
No, she can't find her way,
Her way back home.
Track Name: Haunted
Don't haunt me anymore
Don't haunt my days and nights
Don't haunt me anymore
I want to be free of your love gripping me tight
Don't haunt me anymore
Don't follow where I walk
Don't eavesdrop on my heart, screaming silently inside
While my mouth pretends to talk

Don't haunt me anymore
Don't haunt the things I do
Don't haunt me anymore
I want to be free of the memory of you
Don't haunt me anymore
Don't wander through my rooms
Don't peek behind my eyes
And laugh at all the lies I wear to hide my wounds
Don't haunt me anymore

I want to sleep without dreaming
Let nothing in
Eyes that were crying are seeing
How to begin
How to begin...

Don't haunt me anymore
Don't haunt my days and nights
Don't haunt me anymore
I want to be free of your love gripping me tight
Don't haunt me anymore
Don't trace my footsteps home
I?ll live the life I have
Not as crazy or as mad
But my soul will be my own

Don't haunt me anymore...
Track Name: Again and Again
How many times I say the words
Again and again and again and again
A thousand different ways I say I love you

And I tell myself I can and I can
If I say the words again and again
A thousand different ways I say I need you

When I'm with you walls will crumble
I sit down I stand I stumble
Every word I mumble comes out wrong

And again I try, trip and fall,
Burn inside and again I call your name...

And I want to dance this dance with you
This crazy dance for two
And dancing I?ll pretend
Everything's alright
And you, stay with me tonight
Baby...

Lately I've said these words
Again and again and again and again
Don't know if there's anyone to listen

And I tell myself I can and I can
'Cause I didn't run when the others ran
And never really cared what I was missing

When I'm near you I'm the queen or I'm nothing
Or I'm in between
Always running not so sure where to...

And you, again your face
Touch me but you won't embrace me
Why?

And I want to dance this dance with you
This crazy dance for two
And dancing I'll pretend
Everything's alright
And you, stay with me tonight
Baby..

And I want to dance this dance with you
This crazy dance for two
And dancing I'll pretend
Everything's alright
And you, stay with me tonight
Maybe..

Again and again and again
A thousand different words for keeping still

And I tell myself try something new,
There are a thousand things that you can do
And I know I can...
And I know I never will.
Track Name: Long Coat in Winter
Grow into me like a vine through a sidewalk
Struggling to reach for the sky
Grow into me like the veins on my forehead
that stand out whenever I cry

Oh, I will wrap my arms around you like a long coat in winter
Oh, will you stay with me on thinning ice and trust me to lead?
Will you be everything I need?

Climb next to me up the trail, up the mountain
Even though times running out
Night falls around, there's no light in the distance
Only my shadows of doubt

Oh, I will wrap my arms around you like a long coat in winter
Oh, will you stay with me on thinning ice and trust me to lead?
Will you be everything I need?

Will you be everything I need?
Track Name: Blue Touches Blue
Blue touches blue
Touches grey touches brown
I look down at my feet, they've been with me for years
I take one step for you and then two for myself
Oh, I need to be stronger
I need to be stronger

Blue touches blue
Touches black, then expands
All the tears and the years in the palm of my hand
Do you think you can tell me what?s wrong and what's wronger?
I need to be stronger
I need to be stronger

I want to twist in your arms
Like a snake that's been charmed
Like a baby newborn with his arms groping out
I would shout but there's always a song and
I need to be stronger
I need to be stronger

Blue touches blue

I look down at my feet

I take one step for you

I need to be stronger

Blue touches blue
Touches gray, frothy white
Where my face is all blurred and reflecting the night
If I tell you I feel like a bird in the cold
And I need you to hold me?
I need you to hold me

Blue touches blue...
Track Name: Carefully
A sad mistake
A strange coincidence
Two fields were crossed
I lost my innocence
Stood staring straight into the sun

An orange flame
To break the black of night
He calls my name
But doesn''t say it right
I stay in place
When I should run

Carefully, carefully now
Don't let it fall and break
Hold it tight, with both hands
For sadness sake

I know you're there
But I can't see too well
I touch your hair
Inhale your earthy smell
I try to feel
Beyond the glass

Carefully, carefully now
Don't let it fall and break
Hold it tight, with both hands
For sadness sake

A sad mistake
But I'm recovering
The birds of prey
No longer hovering..

Carefully, carefully now...
Track Name: Dala Dala
transliteration:

<strong>Free translation from Yemenite by Noa</strong>

Slowly, slowly my love
Keep still, so they don't hear you...

For if they do, they'll throw you in jail,
And cut my throat!

Slowly, slowly my love
Keep still, so they don?t hear you...

For to my throat they'll bring a knife
For loving you,
I give my life.
Track Name: Morning (Boker)
transliteration:

Yom rishon baboker ve'ata omer li,
Kama tov lehitorer kan letzidech.
Shemesh melatefet ben hatrisim u-
vli siba muchedet ba li lechayech
Kumi kumi mami, kach ata omer li
Numi numi od enayich atzumot
Veharadio mekashkesh bisfat hakodesh
Al ha'omes sheben rishon leganot
Shir katan mitnagen baboker
As the day begins - shir muar.
Od daka chadashot nekave sheze beseder
Good morning good morning
'Tishmei hechlateti' kach ata omer li
Ani ve'at nos'im velo la'avoda
Ulai nivkok et hamiflas al haKineret
O bishvil shoko nitgalgel ad Yotveta
Shir katan...
Boi nikach et haCharade hameubeket
Ga'aguim od dvukim al hashimsha
Nisa le'at ki hahistoria lefanin
Ma yetze lanu im na'akof ota
Shir katan...

<strong>Free translation from Hebrew by Noa:</strong>

Monday morning and you tell me:
Waking up beside you is living in style
I feel the sun caressing, softly through the shades, and
For no particular reason, I think I'm gonna smile!

Wake up, sweety, wake up!
(That's just what you tell me)
Sleepy, sleepyhead,
Your eyes are still afloat
And the radio carries on in the holy language
About a million traffic jams from Rishon to Ganot

There's a little song playing as the day begins
Bright and clear
Any minute now the news
God I hope today well hear
Good morning, good morning, yeah..

Listen, I've decided
(That's just what you tell me)
Both of us are going, but not to work, hurrah!
We could check the water level of the sea of Galilee
Or make a run for chocolate-milk
Down in Yotvata

There's a little song playing as the day begins
Bright and clear
Any minute now the news
God I hope today well hear
Good morning, good morning

Let's take the dusty charade
Our heartache and longing still stuck on her glass
We can take it slowly, for history?s before us
What good would it do us to speed by the past?

There's a little song playing as the day begins
Bright and clear
Any minute now the news
God I hope today well hear
Good morning, good morning, yeah!
Good morning!
Track Name: The Beauty of That
When I look into your eyes, I don't know what to say
It's been so very long we've been waiting for this day
When you give me that smile, I don't know what to give you back
So I say oh, look at that
Look at the beauty of that

When I look into your eyes, I see your universe
And how much better your life could be, and how much worse
I see all that you've done to try and keep your hope intact
And I say oh, look at that
Look at the beauty of that

Oh, look at that
Look at the beauty of that

Oh, I guess I was blind
Until I realized
The sun only shines
When it shines in your eyes...

I say, oh, look at that
Look at the beauty of that

Oh, look at that
Look at the beauty of that
Track Name: Beautiful That Way
Smile, without a reason why
Love, as if you were a child
Smile, no matter what they tell you
Don't listen to a word they say
'Cause life is beautiful that way

Tears, a tidal-wave of tears
Light that slowly disappears
Wait, before you close the curtain
There?s still another game to play
And life is beautiful that way

Here, in his eyes forever more
I will always be as close as you remember from before.

Now, that you're out there on your own
Remember, what is real and what we dream is love alone.

Keep the laughter in your eyes
Soon, your long awaited prize
Well forget about our sorrow
And think about a brighter day
'Cause life is beautiful that way
