Track Name: Andrómeda
Hoy no quiero irme a la cama
para despertarme un día más vieja
Afuera los árboles ya sueñan
con acariciar a las estrellas

Yo soy una cosa delicada
Sé que es para mí esta tormenta
Así como sus labios un día,
cuando sea que ellos aparezcan

La masa de tu galaxia no se puede calcular
Pero a veces juro siento que en mí te enredás

Me ves a través del universo
Caminar a salvo en mi impermeable
Andrómeda, Andrómeda
Andrómeda

La masa de tu galaxia no se puede calcular
Pero a veces juro siento que en mi te enredás

Andrómeda, Andrómeda
Andrómeda
Track Name: She Sleeps Alone (Dreams Of The Archer King)
She sleeps by herself
every single night
Whether she’s happy
Happy or sad
Don’t send your army
to camp beneath her sheets
She wants to sleep alone

She sleeps alone ´cause she’s tired
Tired of trying, tired of running
When she knows, she’s aware
That there’s only one thing that can
wake her
and make her

Step out of the rain
and into the rain again
Kneel by the stream
and again begin to dream

Sometimes she feels
She’s already gone
But don’t send your soldiers
to brush off her snow
And slow down your horses
Unless they grow wings
She’s blowing in the wind

She sleeps alone ´cause she’s tired
Tired of trying, tired of running
When she knows she’s aware
That only the archer king can wake her
And make her

Step out of the rain
and into the rain again
Kneel by the stream
and again begin to dream

(Only the archer king)

Out of the rain
Into the rain again
Kneel by the stream
Again begin to dream

of those pink
plastic shoes
Track Name: Lotus Song
This moment is like spring
and I’m a lily
In a marigold field
Losing all my memories

A sweet wind took me
for a little ride
I knelt by the water
So clear it was the sky

Another lonely lily
swam deliciously
It whispered “Eat me, drink me, taste me”
So I did

It all went away
Years and years and years
Just taste a water lily
And forget everything

a sunflower I should’ve been
Track Name: This is Winter
This is Winter
Summer’s fling
Can’t you leave her
Anything?

Can’t take back the apple tree
Can’t take back the orchard scene

No, I can’t take them home with me

There are snowflakes
on my iceskates
Can’t recall how
violets taste

Can’t bring back the smell of things
Like fresh mown grass from sunny windowsills

No, I can’t take them home with me

Under the snow
Inside the mist
Everything’s lost
In Winter’s kiss
Igloos and coats
Boots on my feet
Won’t keep me warm
Inside his kiss

No I can’t take them home with me

This is Winter…
This is Winter…
Track Name: Nicotine
Nic nic nic nicotine
Nic nic nic nicotine
Can you make choices
From down where you are?

Nic nic nic nicotine
Nic nic nic nicotine
Can you even see me
Through your little window?

You don’t have enough space
In your armour for two
You don’t bounce off these clouds
You can’t breathe me in too

This scarlet pearl
In the palm of my hand
Your absence hurts when you leave
While you stay
December will come
Even if you don’t come
Please tell me when
I don’t have you anymore
Please tell me when

Nic nic nic nicotine
Nic nic nic nicotine
Nic nic nic nicotine
Nicotine or me

Can’t you just see the reason
Feel the reason why
Here in my eyes

Nic nic nic nicotine
Track Name: Floating (balloons and feathers)
Floating

Orbiting

Floating, floating
Feathers in the air
Orbiting, orbiting
In whose milky way?

Locked my blue balloon,
our blue balloon
down in the basement
Where they used to keep the moon
next to the fool who tried to steal the stars
and almost made it

No need for a spaceship
to visit my galaxy
So he came
back for tea with our monsters
With a frog in his hand
His hand

If the sky was in a bag
Would the sun still shine?
If your sin was in my bag,
Would our sky not die?

Floating, floating
feathers, up they went
Orbiting, orbiting
In whose milky way?

floating…
floating…
Track Name: Cobarde
Se acordó que lo esperaba
mirando por la ventana
Se acordó que ella bailaba
como las hojas en el viento esa mañana

Y volvió como si nada
pero ella ya no estaba
Se voló mientras buscaba
en el bosque una manzana
O al menos eso le dijeron
Cuando por ella preguntaba

Se acordó de cómo lo miraba
como di no hubiera más nada
Se preguntó si él hacía lo mismo
o de cobarde lo ocultaba

Ya es muy tarde. Es muy lejos.
Ya no tiene remedio.
O al menos eso le dijeron
Cuando por ella preguntaba
Pero él no lo aceptaba
Ya no quería ser cobarde
Se ató a un barrilete
y voló a buscarla
Track Name: Julian
Julian
Julian
Anchored eyes in the past
If you smile when you smile
You shimmer, you glow
No grudge in your clarity
Things are melting now

Drenched in blue
But it doesn’t match your eyes
Could you guess the songs you’re in?
Staying low to escape the catcher in the rye
Never understanding why

Julian
Julian
The sunset’s gonna start
In a space empty of light
Sometimes things are upside down
No hole in your clarity
It’s all melting fast

Drenched in blue
But it doesn’t match your eyes
Could you guess what songs you’re in?
Staying low to escape the catcher in the rye
Has he found diamonds in the sky?

You know this storm is for you
I know that it is for you, this time
Postcard leaves are changing
Bleeding seasons ending
Closing paper cuts

Julian
If only we could meet
I wish that we could meet
by the seaside
in September
Track Name: Hadas
Son duendes o caminan
las flores solas
Los árboles suspiran
a las nubes naranjas

Bajo el agua las rocas ríen
en burbujas de silencio
Por no despertar
por no despertar las hadas

Con los ojos bien abiertos
con cuidado de no pisar un sueño
Que se apaga
que se apaga el jardín

Por el bosque con cuidado
de no cerrar la mente
Que se rompe
Que se rompe
que se rompe la magia
Track Name: Irrompible (flores para los vivos)
Flores, flores

Flores para los vivos
A ellos les duelen
Las cosas que ya
Nunca colverán

Dentro, me lastima el tiempo
El cambio lo siento
No quiero dejar
Nada atrás

Yo no quiero ser frágil
Quiero ser irrompible
Yo no quiero ser frágil
Quiero ser invencible

Tengo un estornudo
Es que sufro de alergia
A nuestra extinción

Todo debe marchitarse
Odio desintegrarme
Hola, llamo para
mi turno cancelar

Se van, es decir nos vamos
Llorando y pateando
Tal como llegamos
Hay quien tira de la correa
para ver si aún le queda
algo de libertad

es que yo no quiero ser frágil
quiero ser irrompible
yo no quiero ser frágil
quiero ser invencible

Yo no quiero ser frágil
Quiero ser irrompible
Yo no quiero ser frágil
Quiero ser invencible

Yo no quiero ser frágil
quiero ser invencible
Yo no quiero ser frágil
quiero ser irrompible
