Track Name: Corner of the Earth
Little darlin' don't you see the sun is shining
just for you, only today
If you hurry you can get a ray on you, come with me, just to play
Like every humming bird and bumblebee
Every sunflower, cloud and every tree
I feel so much a part of this
Nature's got me high and it's beautiful
I'm with this deep eternal universe
From death until rebirth

This corner of the earth is like me in many ways
I can sit for hours here and watch the emerald feathers play
On the face of this I'm blessed
When the sunlight comes for free
I know this corner of the earth it smiles at me
So inspired of that there's nothing left to do or say
Think I'll dream, 'til the stars shine

The wind it whispers and the clouds don't seem to care
And I know inside, that it's all mine
It's the chorus of the breakin' dawn
The mist that comes before the sun is born
To a hazy afternoon in May
Nature's got me high and it's so beautiful
I'm with this deep eternal universe from death until rebirth

[chorus]
You know that this corner of the earth is like me in many ways
I can sit for hours here and watch the emerald feathers play
On the face of it I'm blessed
When the sunlight comes for free
I know this corner of the earth it smiles at me x5

This corner of the earth, is like me in many ways
I can sit for hours here and watch the emerald feathers play
When the sunlight comes for free
I know the corner of this earth it smiles at me
Track Name: Agua de Beber
Eu quis amar mais tive medo
E quis salvar meu coraзгo
Mas o amor sabe um segredo
O medo pode matar o seu coraзгo

Бgua de beber
Бgua de beber camarб
Бgua de beber
Бgua de beber camarб

Eu nunca fiz coisa tгo certa
Entrei pra escola do perdгo
A minha casa vive aberta
Abri todas as portas do coraзгo

Бgua de beber
Бgua de beber camarб
Бgua de beber
Бgua de beber camarб

Eu sempre tive uma certeza
Que sу me deu desilusгo
Й que o amor й uma tristeza
Muita mбgoa demais para um coraзгo

Бgua de beber
Бgua de beber camarб
Бgua de beber
Бgua de beber camarб
Track Name: Infant Eyes
No poet beneath the skies
the voice will never rise
that could sing of my love
for my dear infant eyes

infant eyes you are my own
without you stars would fall
the moon would lose it's glow
rivers would cease to flow

I wish you'd realise
the flow I have inside
a love that never dies
for my dear infant eyes
Track Name: Tangerine
lyrics are hard to come by for this one, they are considered copyright. I'm going to go with the flow, you can write 'em down as you listen :)
Track Name: Corcovado
Corcovado

Um cantinho, um violão
Esse amor, uma canção
Pra fazer feliz a quem se ama

Muita calma pra pensar
E ter tempo pra sonhar
Da janela vê-se o Corcovado
O Redentor, que lindo!

Quero a vida sempre assim
Com você perto de mim
Até o apagar da velha chama

E eu que era triste
Descrente desse mundo
Ao encontrar você eu conheci
O que é felicidade, meu amor.
Track Name: Catching the Wave
Catching the waves with my eyes I see love
Up in the stars, bliss in the heart of the night I see love
Deep in my soul there's a story waiting to be told
Of a million delights, starry starry nights, wrapped up in waves of gold

Light in your smile like sunrise I feel love
Raphael's crown, eyes burning green and brown imbuing love
Peace resides in a pool surrounded by fire
I'm completed by you in everything I do, decidely I'm in
love with you, with everything you do, takin' a chance on love
Track Name: The Man with the Child in his Eyes
I hear him
Before I go to sleep
And focus on the day
That's been.
I realize he's there
When I turn the light off
And turn over.

Nobody knows about my man.
They think he's lost on some horizon.
And suddenly I find myself listening
To a man I've never known before,
Telling me about the sea,
Oh his love is to eternity.

Ooh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
Ooh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.

He's very understanding and he's so
Aware of all my situations.
When I stay up late
He's always with me
What I feel when I hesitate.
Oh I'm so worried about my love.
They say "no, no it won't last forever".
And here I am again my girl,
Wondering what on earth I am doing here.
Maybe he doesn't love me,
I just took a trip on my love for him.

Ooh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
Ooh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
Track Name: Moonlight in Vermont
Pennies in a stream
Falling leaves, a sycamore
Moonlight in Vermont

Icy finger waves
Ski trails on a mountain side
Snowlight in Vermont

Telegraph cables, they sing down the highway
And travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely

Evening summer breeze
Warbling of a meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont

You and I and
Moonlight in Vermont
Moonlight in Vermont

Telegraph cables, they sing down the highway
And travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely

Evening summer breeze
Warbling of a meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont

You and I and
Moonlight in Vermont
Track Name: I Concentrate on You
Whenever skies look gray to me and trouble begins to brew
Whenever the winter winds become too strong
I concentrate on you

When fortune cries "Nay, nay" to me
And people declare "You're through"
Whenever the blues become my only songs
I concentrate on you

On your smile, so sweet, so tender
When at first my kiss you do decline
On the light in your eyes when you surrender
And once again our arms intertwine

And so when wise men say to me
That love's young dream never comes true
To prove that even the wise men can be wrong
I concentrate on you
Track Name: Unforgettable
Unforgettable, that's what you are
Unforgettable though near or far
Like a song of love that clings to me
How the thought of you does things to me
Never before has someone been more

Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay
That's why, darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too

Unforgettable in every way
And forever more, that's how you'll stay
That's why, darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am unforgettable too
