Track Name: Time Spy
Why do I feel like a spy all the time?
When I die wonder will I fight crime?
And all my collective date, baby baby will it matter?
Matter of fact I distract you and fiddle around with my tie.
When you look back, I retract and propel to the sky.
I have everything I need, they didn't even bleed.

Somewhere in space, I'll leave not a trace.
Sigh, not a sigh.
You might look at my face but you won't find the place where I cry,
sometimes even I must cry.
Aye aye aye aye aye aye.

I'm so high.
Track Name: White Cloud
White cloud I'm so proud,
you're my spring squaw
hear the crow caw
see the sea wave
as the earth cave
and the wind blow
make the fire grow.

I never guessed,
I hold my breath and think it over
a treasure chest
I truly, truly blessed.

My light sees your light
please my sight
and it feel right

As you get dressed
I hold my breath and think it over
your treasure chest
I truly, truly blessed

White cloud I'm so proud,
you're my spring squaw
hear the crow caw
see the sea wave
as the earth cave
and the wind blow
make the fire grow.

You're my white cloud and I'm so proud.
Track Name: How Lovely Love Can Be
If somebody give me some money for something i do
I take a little diamond ring and I give it to you
Oh honey give me the cow I don't want the milk free
if they took this song right now and put it on TV
You would see how lovely, lovely love could be.

No it matter what we eat no difference where we sleep
true love honey come mighty cheap
but to be living the dream just you and me
it's like a laser love beam for the world to see
and you'll see how lovely, lovely love could be.

You know, to cry all them tears helps you see clear
Their fistful of fears won't find us here, no.
We could be at the start of a new life right now
I don't know how, gonna make you my wife somehow.

Come on in, come on in, the water's warm.
and the sea is calm for the coming storm
as the last few rays of the sun leap and prance
and our shadows dance as we make romance
you'll see how lovely, lovely love could be.
How lovely love could be between you and me.
Track Name: You Don't Know Her (Like I Do)
Child, you're not the only chosen one.
God smiled on every flower 'neath the sun.
I traverse the starry universe to disperse with your curse.
Time may try to turn backwards, leave you lonely behind.
And if you can't find the right words, when you talk about that gal o' mine.
You don't know her like I do,
you don't know the things we do.
Our love is sacred, you'll never take it.
You don't know her like I do.

We play so many parts in each other's hearts
don't throw any darts when your darkness starts
when you cast your spell, you poison the well where you dwell
can't you tell?
That I've found love i can live on for the length of my years
and man, you can just get gone
if you don't know the strength of your fears.

You don't know her like I do,
you don't know the things we do.
Our love is sacred, you'll never take it.
You don't know her like I do.

Why do you always start,
to break my heart apart?
You know you get back what you send
but I thought you were my friend.

You don't know her like I do,
you don't know the things we do.
Our love is sacred, you'll never take it.
You don't know her like I do.
Track Name: Cats and
She was the feisty type gettin' into fights, she was so heavy.
She was so heavy, she was so light, she was so heavy.
She was so heavy.
She'd capture cats and chop off their tails, she'd capture cats and.
Send you dead rats inside the mail, send you dead rats and, send you dead rats and, she'd send you dead rats, and..

She call you out into the night,
and you walk into her knife.
She didn't mean to take your life,
but she don't really care.
She don't care.

I try so hard to take her apart, but where does she end and..
where does she end and where does she start, where does she end and...
where does she end, and..
Where did she go?
she was just here and now she is nowhere.
Now she is nowhere, now she appear.
Now she is nowhere, now she is nowhere.
And now you are nowhere.

She call you out into the night,
and you walk into her knife.
She didn't mean to take your life,
but she don't really care.
She don't care.
