Track Name: Surrender
Rain coming down on me
It's washing away my security into shades of pain
Wind spinning fast and wild
But from where this storm comes
There's nowhere to run
You can't run from yourself

Lies confessed
More guises shed
No more strength to hold up who I am

So I surrender my my heart
I surrender my ways
With a little faith I surrender

Waves crash with endless grace
While the tide and the moon stay so perfectly tuned
They have nothing to prove

Why do I insist on fighting
Can't let go of who I need to be

So I surrender my my heart
I surrender my ways
With a little faith I surrender

But there's no choices left
I'm cornered in by my pride
Something inside is dying
Track Name: Can You Hear
Just one step
To one last ride
Have you said your last goodbye
Dangerous games between what feels good and what is right
Have you ever seen a lion cry

Can you hear
Hear the voices
Can you hear the voices too

Has the tiger lost his sight
Hhs your hunger tasted night
Would the darkness feed the light
One fine line between child's play and suicide
Track Name: Goodbye
Close the window, winter speaks
now the wolf must sleep
Wind so empty, his echo won't return
Time won't cry for you
But, I do
Still, I do

Kissed by the night, held in the sea
Is where you are
all you ever dreamed?
Here I am
I'll reach out my hand
to give you this one last goodbye

Listen closely
there's a new song that's just begun
For a while angels share
what we have lost
I know now you touch what's real
Just know I've been touched by you

Kissed by the night, held in the sea
Is where you are
all you ever dreamed?
Here I am with one wish, one prayer
you hear this one last goodbye

Goodbye my friend, goodbye
Give me just one sign
Let me know you see
There's much more of me
Because of you

Kissed by the night, held in the sea
Wherever you are,
you're inside of me
Here I am,
please reach out your hand
and take this one last goodbye
Kissed by the night, held in the sea
Is where you are
all you ever dreamed?
Here I am, reaching my hand
To give you this one last goodbye
Can you hear this one last goodbye?
Track Name: Written and produced by Dina Fanai - Na Kupenda Maliaka
Time To move on
Child sacrificed here way too long
The slave is buried far beneath the ground
Now you're free to rise
and hear the words

Na Ku Penda Malaika

Higher roads to softer prices
Virgin eyes safely guided
Gentle are the angels arms of change
Let them sing through me and sing to you
They're calling calling

Na Ku Penda Malaika

You came to me
So listen
Track Name: Purify
I lay across an open field
and wish the word away
Greater men and woman than I
Come to you as I do today

I feel the crisp cool breeze
Through my hair and everywhere
I feel the sun dance on my knees and I

I breath the air you purify

I breath the air you purify
Confuse the point you clarify
Complicate the life you simplify
I breath the air

I walk into the water
To wash my sins away
I long to end all self destruction
With these imperfect hands I pray

I swim your tranquil sea
Life's a wonder twenty feet under
When I feel your spirit rescue me
and I breath the air you purify
Track Name: Find A Way
Do you cry our tears
Of children lost in a dream
Hard to have faith in what's unseen
Hard to believe in what's unknown but

We will find a way
God help us find our way

Do you hear our prayers
Do you pray for the same
That we remember who we are
How have we fallen this far from home but

We will find a way
God help us find our way

Wispher the secrets we have forgotten
We're all the same here just want to be loved
Track Name: Silence Speaks The Night
He sleeps
So far away from every day things
He don't know
how to cross the line to what's been missing

Painting themes on the man he tries to be
Why strokes of sweat and blood keep him lost at sea
Then the lights go down and

Silence Speaks the night
He'll rise into his sail
Uncovering what is real
When silence speaks the night
Silence Speaks the night

She has found
A pretty life a pretty upside-down frown
Secret dreams
Still hidden underneath her cotton sheets

Keeps it clean and safe
in this place she calls her home
But when the chess boards melt
the horses start to roam
and the lights go down

Silence Speaks the night
It plays her through her soul
and she becomes revealed
When silence speaks the night
Silence Speaks the night

Too late it's clear
You've been tempted by the taste
This circus you call fate
Only you have locked your own cage
Why? why?

Then silence speaks the night
A gentle lulabye
A voice that you will hear
When silence speaks the night
Her song becomes her dance
Her dance becomes your voice
When silence Speaks the night
Track Name: Safe In The Wind
So far away
Still you are here
We come from so long ago
and I know you feel me there too

Two eyes, one heart
Only have seen the same
and we are not alone

You shine my hero, my star
Thank you for everything you are
and this sacred thread you've let me hold and share
Must be stronger than the wind
Forever like the wind
Safe in the wind

This child that's grown into you
I've traveled far too
Seems space has given me
More room to love more of you

Now I feel you everywhere
Closer inside of each prayer

You shine my hero, my star
Thank you for everything you are
and this sacred thread that stretched so far
Must be stronger than the wind
Forever like the wind
Safe in the wind

So far away
Still you are here
Track Name: The Dove
Alone
A familiar place
and why is nobody home

Few more years
Still the same child
Once again left on your own

But now you're given the chance
To rise from the shade
Your shadows will fade away

Fragile wings spread your grace
Broken heart claim you pride
Gentle winds will guide you far
Like you the dove
Sometimes flies alone

Tears held so safe inside
While your shame silentely cried
and you feared in your ocean of pain
That the waves might take you away

But now you're given the chance
To see that you fears
Never were really there

If for one moment
You begin to question your flight
Find strength in my love
For the one who's given me life

Please just look through my eyes
and see all you are
See what you've been to me
Track Name: Lost In Paridise
Thinking in color
but speak in black and white
Such dissonance between heart and mind
Blind to the magic behind the circumstance
Dreams fade like diamonds in the sand

Moving still, we chase the wind through the avenues
for answers in our hands that we don't yet understand

Holding the sight
Holding the candle to the light
Still we decide to stay lost
Lost in paradise

There are no more victims when there's nothing left to blame
Pointing fingers point back from where they came
Where milk and honey used to feel so free
Such a shame this gift turned bitter sweet

But there's a place where love won't mean compromise
and forgiveness won't mean such sacrifice
if we just could look inside

Funny how we're looking for a place we're already in
Already there
and we belong
