01 – Prologue (Revolution)
Music & Lyrics copyright by C.K. Brooke

[REBELS]: They give us a famine while they feast
My sons are paupers, theirs are kings
And they take it all away
And they give nothing back
And they take it all away
And they give nothing back

Revolution
Cleanse the streets of their royal pollution
Revolution
Is the solution
To cleanse the streets of their royal…royal pollution

Brother, toss me a farthing in the street
Even with wages, I can’t eat
And he riles the people up
And we’ve got to tear them down
And he riles the people up
And we’ve got to take them, take them, take them down

Revolution
Is the solution
To cleanse the streets of their royal pollution
Revolution
Is the solution, the only solution

Let her go, let her go…


02 – Fifteen Years Later
Music & Lyrics copyright by C.K. Brooke

[MAXOS]: What makes you think you can find her
And bring her back to us?
Need I, need I remind you
That she is dead to the world?

[GATSPIERRE]: Oh, yes I think we can find her
Have them bring her back to me
Need I, need I remind you
That she is family?

Let the games begin…

03- Dainy of Beili
[Instrumental]

04 – The Lover’s Ditty
Music & Lyrics copyright by C.K. Brooke

Love, it so tears me asunder
When I am apart from thee
But my heart doth roar like thunder
When your face is smiling at me

Hum ditty ah-ah, hum ditty ah-ah
Hum ditty ah-ah, hum ditty ay

Yea, I love thee like a river
Yea, I love thee like a fire
Thou art lovely like the summer
Lover of my heart’s desire

Hum ditty ah-ah, hum ditty ah-ah
Hum ditty ah-ah, hum ditty ay

05 – Rake
Music & Lyrics copyright by C.K. Brooke

[BOS/MAC/PASCALE]: Tell you, that one
Stay away from him
You don’t want his kiss
Don’t want his crooked grin
He’s a wolf in a cotton cloak
Not someone you want to get to know

Watch your back, girl
He’s a tease
He’ll try to charm you
Try to please
But he’s a predator on the run
Don’t indulge his wicked fun

He’s a rake
He’s a fake
Comes to take, hustle, and lie
He’ll only break your heart
And make you cry, cry, cry

[JON]: Darling, never
Heed that blather
Why, it’s just fodder
Heartless slander
My intentions, oh they’re true
And I only have eyes for you.

06 – Priya’s Song
Music & Lyrics copyright by C.K. Brooke

My love who hath given his hand unto me
Has left me in darkness this night
He left on the thunderous tides of the sea
Extinguished the stars of their light

My love, o but how could you leave me as such
With naught but my dreams shattered so
I long for the curve of your face but to touch,
The life which we never shall know

Each night by the seashore I’m searching for you
I thought that our love could not die
Return ye, return ye until I monsoon
Drenching all with the tears that I cry

But love, I await ye with unshaking faith
And up to the moon I do pray
That someday you will return back to this place
And here in my arms, ever stay.

07 – Storms
Music & Lyrics copyright by C.K. Brooke

There will be storms
There will be storms in our life
It’s how we handle them
It’s how we make the ship right

Will we sail on? Will we go back?
Will we laugh with the rain at our neck?
You can be sure there will be storms.

08 – The Answer’s in my Eyes (Jon & Dainy)
Music & Lyrics copyright by C.K. Brooke

[DAINY]: Could someone like you love someone like me
With all I am, and all I’m not?
A brush of your hand, a note in your voice
Does things to me that I know shouldn’t

And ei-ei-ei…the answer’s in my eyes
The answer’s in my eyes
And ei-ei-ei…the answer’s in my eyes
The answer’s in my eyes.

[JON]: Could someone like you want someone like me
With all I am, and all I’ve done?
I’ve given it time, I’ve tried to talk myself
Out of feeling the way I’m feeling

Ei-ei-ei…the answer’s in my eyes
The answer’s in my eyes
Ei-ei-ei…
[DAINY]: I’m looking in your eyes and I can see it
[TOGETHER]: The answer’s in my/your eyes
The answer’s in my eyes
Ei-ei-ei…the answer’s in my eyes….

09 – Over Now
Music & Lyrics copyright by C.K. Brooke

[JON]: It’s over now, it’s over now, it’s over now
And I’m so over
So for now, let’s go for now, I’m sober now
And I’m so over

[DAINY]: Oh, I know…I’m so over…
Oh, I know…I’m so over you

It’s over now, so over now
I’m so over

Oh, I know…I’m so over…
Oh, I know…I’m so damn over you.

10 – Not Afraid
Music & Lyrics copyright by C.K. Brooke

[DAINY]: I’m not afraid anymore, I’m not afraid anymore
Another day dawns on me
Another day I shall see
I’m not afraid anymore

I’m not afraid anymore, I’m not afraid anymore
Yes, I was made to be me
Yes, I was made to go and see
So I’ll be brave ’cause I’m not afraid anymore.

Another day dawns on me
Another day I shall see
So I’ll brave and be me
Yes, I’ll be brave
I will believe
That I am brave and I’m not afraid anymore.

11 – What We Need (Mac)
Music & Lyrics copyright by C.K. Brooke

[MAC]: Sometimes we need what we need
Sometimes we need what we need when we need it the most
Even if we are trying to push a round peg into a square hole
Sometimes we need what we need until we don’t
x3

I can do no great things
I can’t do anything
And even trying makes me mad
I’m so frustrated that I never do succeed
I keep on trying though I’m mad

12 – Dainy’s Rescue (Say My Name)
Music & Lyrics copyright by C.K. Brooke

[DAINY]: If you want you can steal the sunshine out from my hands
You can take the rain, the snow
All I want to know is your voice

Will you say my name?
I want to hear you calling
Will you shout my name?
So I can hear you calling

(Ah, ah, ah…)

If you want you can steal the thunder from under my feet
You can have all the stars in my sky if you’d just speak to me

Will you say my name?
So I can hear you calling
Will you shout my name?
I want to hear you calling

13 – Inheritance (Own It)
Music & Lyrics copyright by C.K. Brooke

Ba bada-dada ba ba ba-da
Ba bada-dada ba ba ba-da
Ba, bada, bada, bada
Ba, bada, bada bada…

Well, the choice is really down to you
So choose just what you want to do and own it
Own it, own it

You don’t need someone to tell you so
A finger pointing where to go, you know it
Own it, own it

You don’t need somebody else’s admission
You don’t need someone’s permission, own it
Own it, own it

You don’t need someone to say it’s alright
You just walk in your truth and light, own it
Own it, own it

14 – The Harper’s Meadow
Music & Lyrics copyright by C.K. Brooke

I found the harper’s meadow
His music called to me
For I’d wandered days through the hills and mazes of dreams

I found the harper’s meadow
And so renewed my soul
For I’d wandered lost with the albatross of my woe

O harper’s meadow
Where I’m joyful once more
For there is no ailment
That his harp cannot cure

He strummed his chords so sweetly
His angel voice so soft
Where I once felt buried his music carried me off

O harper’s meadow
Where I’m joyful once more
For there is no ailment
That his harp cannot cure

O harper’s meadow
Where I’m joyful once more
For there is no malady
That his harp cannot cure
