Track Name: COMING TO
COMING TO
How I lived in the past, the moment stood still
It hung around my head in shades
For the longest time I didn’t care about the nows
I was on pause….on then
It was so beautiful, so pretty
Never can say goodbye, now can I?

Coming to slowly
Coming to slowly
Yeah you don’t wake up after such a kiss
You come to your senses
You don’t just wake up after such a kiss
You come to
You come to

The trip home isn’t so grey now
Is it even there?
Your lips are permanently printed on
My heart, my soul and my mind
It was so wonderful, so sexy
Never can say goodbye, now can I?

Coming to slowly
Coming to slowly
Yeah you don’t wake up after such a kiss
You come to your senses
You don’t just wake up after such a kiss
You come to
You come too

SOLO
Coming to, Coming to
It was so beautiful, so sexy
Never can say goodbye now can I?

Coming to slowly
Coming to slowly
Yeah you don’t wake up after such a kiss
You come to your senses
You don’t just wake up after such a kiss
You come to
You come to
You come
You come
Track Name: SO BEAUTIFUL
SO BEAUTIFUL

One, two, three, four
As I fly over land and sea
As I want your intimacy
Your beauty is immortal
Adorn yourself with shiny things
You’re

So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive
So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive

Ballerina grace incarnate
The way you smile and stare at me
The way you love and please me
My greatest mortal fantasy
You’re

So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive
So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive

You’re alive, you’re alive, you’re alive!

So beautiful to me
More beautiful to me
Than anything I know, you’re alive
So beautiful to me (And it doesn’t get better)
More beautiful to me (Now even more than ever)
Than anything I know, you’re alive
So beautiful to me (And it doesn’t get better)
More beautiful to me (Now even more than ever)
Than anything I know,

One, two, three, seven!
Track Name: VELVET ALPHABET
VELVET ALPHABET

I should write a dictionary
I should be a visionary
All the sweet words you inspire me
Turn them into a complicity

Teach the ABC of your body
As the normalcy of my century

Velvet alphabet, velvet alphabet
Love lunacy endlessly
Velvet alphabet, velvet alphabet
Words that say ‘destiny’
Velvet…..alphabet

I should write a dictionary
I should be a visionary
Share souls and so much more
Vocabulary of intimacy

Teach the ABC of your body
As the normalcy of my century

Velvet alphabet, velvet alphabet
Love lunacy endlessly
Velvet alphabet, velvet alphabet
Words that say ‘destiny’
Velvet…..

Velvet, velvet, velvet, velvet alphabet
Love lunacy endlessly
Velvet alphabet, velvet alphabet
Words that say ‘destiny’
Velvet alphabet.
Track Name: IT ALL REVOLVES AROUND YOU
IT ALL REVOLVES AROUND YOU
Word and music: Eloha Bouchard © 1997

Without you the mood is grey
Without you my life is stale
Without you there is no day
Without you the sunlight feels so pale
And the night descends upon me like a veil
Funny how I seem to lose myself
How in the end

It all revolves around you, It all revolves around you
It all revolves around you, It all revolves around you

You put the blood in me
I’m only half of thee
You are vital to me
How in the end

It all revolves around you – I see my life in you
It all revolves around you – I see my eyes in you
It all revolves around you – Everything I love is you
It all revolves around you – How in the end

SOLO

You put the blood in me
I’m only half of thee
You are vital to me
How in the end

It all revolves around you – I see my life in you
It all revolves around you – I see my eyes in you
It all revolves around you – Everything I love is you
It all revolves around you – I’m losing faith in me
It all revolves around you – I lost autonomy
It all revolves around you – I’m losing sanity
It all revolves around you.
Track Name: SURE KNOW SOMETHING
SURE KNOW SOMETHING (KISS)

I've been up and down, I've been all around
I was mystified, almost terrified
But late at night I still hear you call my name

I've been on my own, I've been all alone
I was hypnotized, I felt paralyzed
But late at night I still want you just the same

I've been a gambler, but I'm nobody's fool
And I sure know something, sure know something
You showed me things they never taught me in school
And I sure know something, sure know something
No one can make me feel the way that you do
And I sure know something, aha

I was seventeen, you were just a dream
I was mesmerized, I felt scared inside
You broke my heart and I still can feel the pain

I've been counted out, I've had fear and doubt
I've been starry eyed, never satisfied
'Cause late at night I still need you just the same
Just the same

I've been a gambler, but I'm nobody's fool
And I sure know something, sure know something
You showed me things they never taught me in school
And I sure know something, sure know something
No one can make me feel the way that you do
And I sure know something, aha

AAAH, AAAH...

I've been counted out, I've had fear and doubt
I've been starry eyed, never satisfied
'Cause late at night I still need you just the same
Just the same

I've been a gambler, but I'm nobody's fool
And I sure know something, sure know something
You showed me things they never taught me in school
And I sure know something, sure know something
No one can make me feel the way that you do
And I sure know something, sure know something
No one can tell me till I hear it from you
And I sure know something, sure know something
I've been a gambler, but I'm nobody's fool
Sure know something, sure know something
You showed me things they never taught me in school
Sure know something, sure know something
No one can make me feel the way that you do
