Track Name: My Pony and I
With a coin in my pocket
A trumpet in my hand
I am travelling with my pony
to a far happy land
Where the flowers smell like spring
And everyone sings songs of love

Everytime I travel far
I bring a little coin
My trumpet, pony and I

But nothing seems to change
Things stay the same
There is no one to blame
But me and my coin

The road is long but I am strong
I hold on to my coin

Everytime I travel far
I bring a little coin
My trumpet, pony and I

But nothing seems to change
Things stay the same
There is no one to blame
But me and my coin

At the end of the journey
Me and my pony
We have arrived in this land
And my trumpet plays the song

Everytime I travel far
I bring a little coin
My trumpet, pony and I

But nothing seems to change
Things stay the same
There is no one to blame
But me and my coin

With a coin in my pocket
A trumpet in my hand
I am travelling with my pony
to a far happy land
Track Name: Parrots in London
I moved into a new home
there's a garden out at the back
with my suitcase it's time to unpack
I am here to stay until I have found my way

In the garden out at the back, there are plants, things I don't know
I met some parrots I think they followed me from the other side of the world

Only the parrots in London know, where they have come from
They know yes they know where they have come from
They know yes they know where they belong

Some say they came from Spain
Some say they came with the rain
Some say they escaped from Jimi Hendrix's cage

Only the parrots in London know, where they've come from
They know yes they know where they have come from
They know yes they know where they belong

They look after me on my way home
Make sure I don't roam alone
I see them fly, they give me hope

Only the parrots in London know, where they have come from
Track Name: Mr Sparrow
Oh Mr Sparrow
You know how I feel
You come to my window
and sit on the tree

Oh Mr Sparrow
You know how I feel
You come to my window
and sit on the tree

I look far in the sky
I see you flying away
But I know in my heart
I will see you one day

Oh Mr Sparrow
It's now summertime
Don't be shy
You know how to fly
On this sunny day
Please come my way
Track Name: The Wind Song
When I was a child
I thought I could touch the wind
I would put my hand in the sky and say

Blow blow blow wind blow
Blow all my worries away
and let all the pretty ones stay

Today I saw your face
I thought I had something to say
But when I looked at you everything blew away
I blame the wind
It blows so strong
It wiped all my thoughts away
Or maybe it's your face, so beautiful it blew all my words away

Blow blow blow wind blow
Blow all my worries away
and let all the pretty ones stay

You are the one that blows my mind away

When I was a child
I thought I could touch the wind
And I'll tell you something
I still can touch the wind
Track Name: Rain
How heavy fell the rain today
From the clouds on a lonely bay
The wind moved them high

The wind sings with you stillT
The young fox on the hill
And your mind with her has gone

Rain Rain Rain please pour on me
Rain Rain Rain sing with me
Rain Rain Rain hide your tears
Rain Rain Rain joy for your ears

Rain Rain Rain in the dark there is your sorrow
Rain Rain Rain comes with you tomorrow
Track Name: Freedom
You know why the caged bird sings
He sings of beautiful things
He spreads his wings towards the blue sky
And dreams of freedom

How did we get it wrong?
I want freedom

You know why the cackatoo cries
Everyday he becomes more wise
The outback tree is my home
So why am I caged all alone?

How did we get it wrong?
I want freedom

I see the other birds fly
High in the sky
Playing in the breeze
Hide and seek behind the tree

How did we get it wrong?
I want freedom

You know why the caged bird sings
He sings of beautiful things
It's not so hard to do
He doesn't want to be in the zoo

How did we get it wrong?
I want freedom

You know why the caged bird sings
He sings of beautiful things
He spreads his wings towards the blue sky
And dreams of freedom

How did we get it wrong?
I want freedom

How did we get it wrong?
A life is not at all without freedom
Track Name: Who Will Take The Blame?
Who will take the blame if the sun doesn't rise
The clouds are lonely without nothing to hide

Who will take the blame if the cherrytree doesn't blossom
When it's time for spring..

Who will take the blame if the fish are looking for a new home
In colder water far from the heat

I have seen the ocean in your heart, there were fish, there were cherrytrees
We all cared more!

Who will take the blame if the music doesn't play
The room is quiet and there's nothing left to say

Who will take the blame when it's time to go home
It's cold outside and there's no one by your side

Who will take the blame if we all go home
To watch our screens and don't hear our friend's screams

I have seen the ocean in your heart, there were fish, there were cherrytrees
We all cared more!

Who will take the blame if the trees are all gone
To a better planet, where their roots aren't torn

Who will take the blame when it's time to go to bed
And no stories to read are left

Who will take the blame if the poet lost his pen
And this song doesn't have an end

…We all take the blame, we all take the blame
We all must give an hand to care for this land

Who will take the blame? Who will take the blame?
Track Name: The Mouse Song
A Mouse went walking on a fine day
Later he arrived to a lovely house
He entered inside and found somewhere to hide
He was quietly looking for some bread crumbs
The house was very clean nothing to be found

Later at night, the lady came back
She went to the kitchen looking for a snack
Cutie little Mouse ran across the floor
He scared the lady without a roar!
She hid in her room and said: 'Thankfully I am not dead!
I will catch you mouse you bet!'

After an hour the house was full of traps
She put some bait with cheese and traps
The traps didn't catch the Mouse
The lady did not know why
(But I know why)

The Mouse did not like cheese!
Track Name: Fireflies
Hello world will be night soon
In the bush there is me and the moon

Fireflies light my way
I will look for them everyday

Fireflies a moment in the night

Hello moon so bright tonight
Turn my loneliness into light

Hello light glimpse of joy
Clear the world from the sorrow

Hello sorrow you are hurting us inside
Free your spell from the mind

Fireflies light my way
I will look for them everyday

Fireflies a moment in the night

Hello world will be morning soon
In the bush there is me and the moon

Fireflies light my way
I will look for them everyday

Fireflies a moment in the night

Love is the king of tomorrow
Free our minds from the sorrow
Track Name: Prisoner
Walking alone at night
I forgot how it feels to be loved
But If I close my eyes
I feel like you are here

Your hand touches my hand gently
Your voice whispers slowly
I open my eyes and you are here
The falling stars are crying
The noisy birds laughing

Please come and take my to your planet
I want to be..
Your Prisoner, Your Prisoner
I want to be your Prisoner, Your Prisoner, Your Prisoner
I want to be your..

Take me, Take me high to Venus, Mars and the Sun
I am not going back
I want to be where you are

Your Prisoner, Your Prisoner
I want to be your Prisoner
Your Prisoner, Your Prioser
I want to be your..
Track Name: The Whale Song
I have lived 27 years
I have travelled more than one million miles
I have met beautiful smiles
But there is something I have never seen

I have never seen a whale
Have you ever seen a whale?

The whale that wonders around the world
The whale that follows the sun
The whale that jumps in the sky for fun
The whale that goes back to where life begun

You can leave one hundred years
You can travel more than one million miles
You can meet beautiful smiles but there is something you will never see

I have never seen a whale
Have you ever seen a whale?

The whale that wonders around the world
The whale that follows the sun
The whale that jumps in the sky for fun
The whale that goes back to where life begun

If you ever meet a whale
You should never touch his tail
because if you ever touch his tail
You will never meet another whale!
