Track Name: Eikon
I will make you a eikon of silver
I'll make you gold
If through them you'll show me the doorway
Away from this cold

I'll direct all I feel up towards
The white clouds above
If behind them you will reveal
The light of love

I will light you a candle in the temple
Build a hearth in my home
If with fire you'll hang up a star
Inside this dark dome

I will burn all the doubt I feel
Align my heart with the dove
If on its two wings you will reveal
The light of love

Please believe me
I'll be faithful to you
But the silence it rings around me
So how can you be true?
Track Name: Feet
I can reach you
Your head is on my pillow
I can touch you with my fingers or my mind
Our bed's an island
Our sheets are soaked in tears
Lay down with me and we'll dry them with love's fire

Remember that your feet they touch the floor
And move swiftly and hold close the things you adore
Let your eyes fill the night with the tears
And don't make war with the sadness which flows through the years
For this love goes on coursing through the Earth's beating heart
And tonight you are here in my arms

I am naked
I sent back all I borrowed
I am empty, my body is reborn
Here is my heart
It's all I have to offer
If you'll take it, I'll beat forever more

Remember that your feet they touch the floor
And move swiftly and hold close the things you adore
Let your eyes fill the night with the tears
And don't make war with the sadness which flows through the years
For this love goes on coursing through the Earth's beating heart
And tonight you are here in my arms
Track Name: Love's Spring
Ask me no more
Why the moon in my eyes waned
Why when winter was over
The light of love did fade
For love's spring has returned
And my heart still yearns
To feel the sun in your eyes
Make the moon in mine grow full

So ask me no more
Why the thorn of sadness grew
Why love's blossom did fall
When once it was in bloom
For love's spring has returned
And my heart still yearns
To feel the rose of your lips
Make the lily 'neath my hips grow full
Track Name: Valley
My open eyes once were closed
And blind to wonders of the world
Like love between man and wife
This is a glimpse towards eternal life
And so a longing in my breast grows
To open up my heart to know...

The place where my home is found
One where I can rest
Of all the places I've lain me down
It's in your arms I love the best
So take me to yon valley low
Where trees do bend, in arches grow
And hold me there, where bells do chime
Together 'til the end of time

Across the gap I'll stretch my arm
To reach your lovely hand
And when our fingertips do meet
We'll join the circles of the land
So take me to the place on high
Up to the blue unclouded sky
And there together our souls will fly
Ascending 'til the end of the time
Track Name: Altars and Thrones
I can see your face in the glistening wash of the ocean
And the mist hangs mute and moist around my hair
What death is this, or is it just some kind of question?
What sacred loving voice could break my heart?

These altars and thrones I built with my bones
They left me all alone
Some spirit, some death, some breath on my neck
Some barren and nauseous crone
Now a system of dreams is all I can see
And the crosses are split into three
And the river runs on, its battle is won
It'll carry the blood to the sea

The rolling tide will catch you when you are weakest
And it'll bury you, just like the flood of tears
It'll gather up every last shred of warmth that's within you
And leave you face to face with all your fears
Track Name: Just Like
Just like the falling of a star
Or as the flight of falcons are
Just like the lightning on the spire
This spark of absolute desire

To fall into love
And I love my love
And my love loves me

Just like the dreaming of a dream
Or as the forming of a stream
That feeds the growing of the brier
The seed that sowed this true desire

To fall into love
And I love my love
And my love loves me

We will sing
As the birds
On the wing
We will sing

Life me up towards the silver sounds
Hold me close and don't let go
Climb the ladder to the highest ground
Leave behind all worldly woes

Beneath a foaming sea of stars
The winter dies, the frost departs
A springtime love is near at hand
A celebration throughout the land

To fall into love
And I love my love
And my love loves me

We will sing
As the birds
On the wing
We will sing
