01. Highland

Looking out and I'm wondering where I am
While I'm stuck in the daily traffic jam
I decide to get out and leave the car behind me
Everywhere there are people passing by
Empty faces and not a friendly smile
Under stress, loneliness, a part of our city
Now I finally have decided
I will leave it all behind
And discover something better
And l know where I will find
Find a place of harmony, of laughter and of dreams
It you want me, that is where I'll be
I'll be waiting on the Highland
With its wonderful serenity
Where the stars glow and the brooks flow
That's my way of life
When the mountains on the Highland
And the nature is surrounding me
When the wind blows
That's all I need, all I need
On the highland when I was a child
l would play with my friends and we were wild
And we all loved the moors, the nature and it's freedom
And we went for ghost hunt in the mist
l remember the first time I got kissed
By the shy neighbour guy, who whispered "be my girlfriend"
But I longed for some excitement
So l travelled 'round the world
After that I settled down and
l became a city girl
Want to parties every night and lived intensively
Now l know it's not a life for me
I'll be waiting on the Highland
With it's wonderful serenity
Where the stars glow and the brooks flow
That's my way of life
When the mountains on the Highland
And the nature is surrounding me
When the wind blows that's all I need
Bonnie Highland, Bonnie Highland, you're sweet
Oh my darling, out of date to leave it without you
I'm sure you love the highland too
If you join me I can promise
You'll stay until eternity
I'll be waiting on the Highland
With it's wonderful serenity
Where the stars glow and the brooks flow
That's my way of life
When the mountains on the Highland
And the nature is surrounding me
When the wind blows that's all I need
Bonnie Highland
Bonnie highland
All the mountains on the highland are embracing and surrounding me


02. Vagabond (Make A Princess Of Me)

There's been many a crooked path
That has ended me here
Tired, broken and wearing rags
Wild eyed with fear

There's much more to this vagabond
Than the eye can see
You can see me through different eyes
Make a princess of me

Door to door with a heavy heart
Try to stave off the cold
In the distance a gypsy cart
Filled with thieves and rogues

There's much more to this vagabond
Than the eye can see
You can see me through different eyes
Make a princess of me

Sing for supper and sing for pence
A song's all I have to give
With a fiddle and with no rest
Singing only to live

There's much more to this vagabond
Than the eye can see
You can see me through different eyes
Make a princess of me

Through the window a golden glow
Families gather 'round
Here outside it starts to snow
Silence the only sound

There's much more to this vagabond
Than the eye can see
You can see me through different eyes
Make a princess of me
You can see me through different eyes
Make a princess of me


03. Journeyman

Many years I've been away from home
I have faced too many battles
Hours here upon the endless road
Have left me bruised and battered
I have heard the secrets of the streets
But I keep them to myself
On display but here inside my soul
Like a trophy on the shelf

Hand upon my heart I know
The moon will light my way
Oh my friend the winding road
Will the life of a journeyman never change?

Round the corner down the narrow trail
My boots are wearing thin
I can feel the heat upon my back
The sun against my skin
Far away I could've sworn I heard the ringing of a bell
Through the miles you know it's hard to tell when it's you against yourself

Hand upon my heart I know
The moon will light my way
Oh my friend the winding road
Will the life of a journeyman never change?

None of us will ever know
What lies around the bend
All the world becomes your home
On the road that never ends...

Hand upon my heart I know
The moon will light my way
Oh my friend the winding road
Will the life of a journeyman never change?


04. Believe In Me

It's a reflection that you see in me
But I know it's not reality
Beneath the glitter and beneath all the lace
Do you see my face?

I'll be the mirror the spaces in between
It's not the truth it's just a dream
But I guess we all have to believe in something
In anything

But do you love me just the way I am?
Do you need me? will you take a chance?
Do you see me for all that I can be
Do you believe, believe in me?

Sometimes you need to be lost just to be found
You need to go to come back around
You need to set someone free for them to return
You live and learn

I've heard it said that true love is blind
All this is just a state of mind
If you're not looking you will never find
You'll be left behind

But do you love me just the way I am?
Do you need me? will you take my hand?
Do you see me through the mystery
Do you believe, believe in me?


05. Sake Of The Song

The moon must be an angel
Her halo surely heaven sent
Watching from above should the bells forget to ring
And we but lonely travellers
Following a ray of light
All become the same when we begin to sing

Round and round we all go
Where we stop nobody knows
Heaven meets on the earth
For the sake of the song
For the sake of the song

Could you ever fly without the fear of falling?
Does the nightbird cease just because it's dawn?
Could a candle burn with any less resilience?
Should we never love for the fear that it may fade?

Round and round we all go
Where we stop nobody knows
Heaven meets on the earth
For the sake of the song
For the sake of the song

Could you ever be just for the sake of being?
Could a melody ever be wrong?
Could you ever sing just for the sake of singing?
Set your spirit free for the sake of the song

Round and round we all go
Where we stop nobody knows
Heaven meets on the earth
For the sake of the song

For the sake of the song


06. Song And Dance (Pt 2)

[Instrumental]


07. Celluloid Heroes

Everybody's a dreamer and everybody's a star
And everybody's in movies, it doesn't matter who you are
There are stars in every city, in every house, on every street
And if you walk down Hollywood boulevard their names are written in concrete!

Don't step on Greta Garbo as you walk down the boulevard
She looks so weak and fragile that's why she tried to be so hard
But they turned her into a princess and they sat her on a throne
But she turned her back on stardom because she wanted to be alone

You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood boulevard
Some that you recognize, some that you've hardly even heard of
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain

If you covered him with garbage, George Sanders would still have style
And if you stepped on Mickey Rooney, he'd still turn round and smile
But please don't tread on dearest Marilyn cos she's not very tough
She should have been made of iron or steel but she was only flesh and blood

You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood boulevard
Some that you recognize, some that you've hardly even heard of
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain

Rudolph Valentino looks very much alive
And he looks up ladies dresses as they sadly pass him by
Avoid stepping of Bela Lugosi cause he's liable to turn and bite
But stand close by Bette Davis hers was such a lonely life

I wish my life was a non-stop Hollywood movie show
A fantasy world of celluloid villains and heroes
Because celluloid heroes never feel any pain
And celluloid heroes never really die

Everybody's a dreamer and everybody's a star
And everybody's in show biz, it doesn't matter who you are
And for those who are successful be always on your guard
Success walks hand in hand with failure along Hollywood boulevard


08. Keeper Of The Flame

Once was a legend of old
In a time of days long ago
The clattering beat of a horse on the street
He appeared from the fog like a ghost

I could feel him heading this way
A storm was filling the air
If truth will be told when the winds blow cold
They are warning you to beware

No the wild cannot be tamed
Keeper of the flame

We wondered what devil is this
Who appears from out of the mist
With a crack of a whip and a wave of his fist
He was cursed and I was bewitched

Haunted by seeing his face
Through the mirror, the smoke and the haze
So hard to see through the dark mystery
The illusion was part of the game

No the wild cannot be tamed
Keeper of the flame

Be careful of what you wish for
And make sure when it knocks at your door
It'll be what you need, not some fantasy
That will haunt you forever more
Let it be what you need,
Not some fantasy that will haunt you forever more


09. Night At Eggersberg

[Instrumental]


10. Strawberry Girl

Through the long days of summer
Where the air was as sweet as perfume
We walked through the golden meadows
And danced by the light of the moon

She was a lonely angel
Sitting there by the side of the road
On the edge of the forest
That's where the wild things grow

And blue skies of promise opened before us
There in her eyes held the dreams of the world
Blue skies of promise rained down upon us
Life is so sweet with a Strawberry Girl

In her hand was a basket
Sticks and branches were woven as one
She smiled bright like a child
Bright as the afternoon sun

It was filled with her treasures
A whole cradle of nature's bounty
Wild flowers were chosen
To lay amongst forest berries

And blue skies of promise opened before us
There in her eyes held the dreams of the world
Blue skies of promise rained down upon us
Life is so sweet with a Strawberry Girl

"It's a great day for a gatherer
You can say that I told you so
In these uncertain days
It's the simple things you need the most"

And blue skies of promise opened before us
There in her eyes held the dreams of the world
Blue skies of promise rained down upon us
Life is so sweet with a Strawberry Girl


11. All The Fun Of The Fayre

In and out of a thousand stories
Here I stand somewhere in between
Kings and Queens, knights and glory
Flash before my eyes unseen.

Laughing and loving and living for summer
Dancing romancing the moon like a lover
Secrets and mysteries kept undercover
All in the fun of the Fayre.

I have entered through the gates
To see the Queen in her finery
Playing chess with the King of the spades
It is all part of the fantasy.

Laughing and loving and living for summer
Dancing romancing the moon like a lover
Secrets and mysteries kept undercover
All in the fun of the Fayre.

Painted ladies with haunted eyes
Dance for you as they hypnotize
I can feel your heart beat faster
When the gypsy becomes your master.

I see you but you're not the same
The eye can see what it wants to see
Through the veil anything can change
You can be what you want to be!

Laughing and loving and living for summer
Dancing romancing the moon like a lover
Secrets and mysteries kept undercover
All in the fun of the Fayre.
All in the fun of the
All in the fun of the
All in the fun of the Fayre!


12. Darkness

Once upon a dark autumn night
I was so very far from sleep
I longed to walk beneath the stars
Into the forest, so dark and deep
Neither myth nor faerie tale
Could keep me from the path to the maze
But eyes upon me I could feel
Hidden in the shadows, watching always

Something in the darkness pulled me deeper
Something in the madness eased my mind
Was I awake or was I dreaming
Cut the strings that bind me to mankind

Once while I was sitting in my room
One cold and silver winter's day
I could hear an otherworldly call
Try as I might, I couldn't turn away

Something in the darkness pulled me deeper
Something in the madness eased my mind
Was I awake or was I dreaming
Cut the strings that bind me to mankind

Somewhere in between
The moss and the stone
The wind and the wood
Became my home
I lay myself down upon the green
When the ivy overgrew
I could never leave

Something in the darkness pulled me deeper
Something in the madness eased my mind
Was I awake or was I dreaming
Cut the strings that bind me to mankind


13. Dance Of The Darkness

14. Health To The Company

Kind friends and companions, come join me in rhyme
Come lift up your voices in chorus with mine
Let us drink and be merry all grief to refrain
For we may or might never meet here again

So here's a health to the company and one to my lass
Let us drink and be merry all out of one glass
Let us drink and be merry all grief to refrain
For we may or might never meet here again

Our ship lies at harbour she's ready to dock
I wish her safe landing without any shock
And if we should meet again by land or by sea
I will always remember your kindness to me

So here's a health to my company and one to my lass
Let us drink and be merry all out of one glass
Let us drink and be merry all grief to refrain
For we may or might never meet here again

My footsteps may falter my wit it may fail
My course may be challenged by November gale
Ere fortune shall prove to be friend or be foe
You will always be with me wherever I go

So here's a health to the company and one to my lass
Let us drink and be merry all out of one glass
Let us drink and be merry all grief to refrain
For we may or might never meet here again


15. Barbara Allen

Twas in the merry month of May
The green buds were a swelling
Sweet William on his death bed lay
For the love of Barbara Allen

He sent his servant unto her
To the place where she was dwelling
Saying you must come to his bedside now
If your name be Barbara Allen

So slowly, slowly she got up
And slowly she drew nigh him
And the only words to him she said
Young man I think you're dying

As she walked slowly o'er fields
She heard the death bell knelling
And with every stroke it seemed to say
Hardhearted Barbara Allen

Oh mother, mother make my bed
Make it long and narrow
Sweet William died for me today
And I will die for him tomorrow

They buried her in the old churchyard
They buried him beside her
And from his grave grew a red, red rose
And from her grave a green briar

They grew and grew to the steeple top
Till they could not grow higher
And there they tied in a true love's knot
Red rose around green briar
