Track Name: Where Life Was Meant to End
I wonder where I would be now,
had you not been on that bridge too
My broken heart was completely lost,
all without hope and out of moves

Open your heart and look at me
Life’s not as dark, as dark as it might seem
There’s so much more, much more for us to see,
So much more, so much more for us to feel
This is not the end

I guess the dust, the dust that I am
Had lost its way home, midst all the pain
My fading strength reached only so far
But there were you, my saving light

The raging waves so tempting
Would’ve been my lowly rest
The wind, the rain my final
and so cold embrace

Had it not been for you
Had you not been there too, in my night

Open your heart and look at me
Life’s not as dark, as dark as it might seem
There’s so much more, much more for us to see,
So much more, so much more for us to feel
This is not the end

Open your heart and look at me
Life’s not as dark, as dark as it might seem
There’s so much more, much more for us to see,
So much more, so much more for us to feel

Take my hand and come with me
I’ll take you home and we will share a life
Here’s not where it ends
This is something else
This is a new start.
Track Name: Who Am I?
Who am I, for a girl?
A girl from a picture-perfect town
Who am I, for a child?
A child from a loving home

Yes, who am I, for a lady?
A young lady of a dazzling cloud mansion
So, who am I?
As the centre of a crowd filled with joy

I know the seasons of the Years
And the journeys of the Winds
The secrets of the wild I've seen

I know the cycles of the Stars
And the stories of the Trees
To the edges of the World I've been

Still this one escapes me Who am I?

Who am I, for a girl?
A girl with an ordinary life
Who am I, for a child?
A child in a perfect place

But who am I, a princess?
A princess of the greatest sand castle
So, who am I,
As a host of tea parties to people I call friends?

I know the seasons of the Years
And the journeys of the Winds
The secrets of the wild I've seen

I know the cycles of the Stars
And the stories of the Trees
To the edges of the World I've been

Still this one escapes me Who am I?

What is it, that makes me?
That makes a heart beat?
What is it, that moves me?
That makes a soul breath?

All I’ve seen...
Where I’ve been...
Who am I?
