Track Name: Marielle
Down by the beach

Here for a week

Cast off our worries away

Like the waves floating away

To sea

All of the girls on the beach

Talking with me

Lips sweet like cherries in May

Can we stay floating away

We can be together in the sun

For awhile, when you smile

I think to myself no one else is like you

Oh, it’s true

No one else matters, it’s clear

When you’re near

Marielle I love you so, you should know

Down by the beach

Bright as can be

Follow me out to the pier

You’ll go home, I’ll be alone
Track Name: Genevieve
Genevieve arrives at three

Put down her coat to have a seat

She waits for me

Genevieve of twenty-three

She has no home, she has no family

She waits for me

How she waits for me

How she waits for me

How she waits for me

How she waits for me

Genevieve belongs to me

Put on a song and dances slowly next to me

By the window where she sleeps

The smell of lilac in her leave

In her leave

How she waits for me

How she waits for me

How she waits for me

How she waits for me

Genevieve lights up a smoke

Put down her drink

Put on her coat

Away she goes

How she waits for me

How she waits for me

How she waits for me

How she waits for me
Track Name: Elena
On a train from Cambodia

Traveling by night

Citing vows plagued by paradox

Unraveling in time

Once in love like two turtle doves

And later torn apart

Elena, I have come to win your heart

We were wed by the river

Where the water lilies grow

Then we drove to Massena

On an old dirt road

Intertwined like the dragon flies

Mating in the marsh

Elena, I have come to win your heart

Lend me your ear

Elena my dear

I’ve come back to give you my love

I was untrue

Ungrateful to you

I’ve come back to give you my love

While the band plays The Byrds

We Turn, Turn, Turn

Soldiers in their uniforms

Girls are in their skirts

You didn’t wear your ring

Has our love grown apart?

Elena, I have come to win your heart


With your picture in my pocket

I carried through the war

Through the night with the light from above

Know that I will always love you

Like I’ve done from the start

Elena, I have come to win your heart
Track Name: Ainsley
The world spins round

The world spins round us, Ainsley

I, I don’t need anything

Lots of money

Cause I, I’ve got you

Live on love

Sweet like honey

Hold me close to you while the world spins round

The world spins round us, Ainsley

I, I don’t need all my dreams

They’re put away

Cause we can start a new

Wild and true

Me and you

That’s what we do

Hold me close to you while the world spins round

The world spins round us, Ainsley

The world spins round

The world spins round us, Ainsley
Track Name: Sofia
Once I lived in a cave

Yes that’s how I spent my days

Shadows on the wall

Carried by a flame

Everyday was the same

How I longed for your embrace

If you come to stay

Careful in your haste

I will take thee for my only

Dear Sofia

Dark it may be

I’ll love you always

Come back to me

Signed, Sincerely

Once I lived in a dream

By the weeping willow tree

In your Sunday dress

Taking in the stream

There I took you for my only

Dear Sofia

Dark it may be

I’ll love you always

Come back to me

Signed, Sincerely

I will take thee for my only

Dear Sofia

Dark it may be

I’ll love you always

Come back to me

Signed, Sincerely
Track Name: Violet
On the way to the square

See her everywhere

In a park with a dog

Strolling through the market

And there I was

She saw me there, I didn’t care

She turns away

Now she’s the one

I think it love

Now she’s the one

I hear her name is Violet

That’s all I really know

Oh, how she comes and how she goes

Follow her through the fair

People everywhere

Carousel, fortune teller

Show me where to find her

And there she was

Beside the lake, I couldn’t wait

I go to meet her

But yet again, she slips away

Oh, yet again

I hear her name is Violet

That’s all I really know

Oh, how she comes and how she goes

Long, the day is quiet

Wild are my dreams

Oh, how she comes and how she goes

Looking back, years ago

You were always beside me

All the girls on the beach

They don’t mean a thing

I don’t need all my dreams

Now you’re the one

Once I lived in a cave

You turned away

Now we live, live on love

Sunlight for all of our days

Sweet like the cherries in May
