Track Name: The Rambling Girl
one day I'll find love 'til then I'll wander, she said
in search of songs and thistledown on which to lay my head
a fire and stars will hold me close when alone at sunset I stand
the evening breeze caress my face instead of a lover's warm hand

a rolling minstrel I will be, I'll sleep on borrowed floors
I'll find new ways to see what there is to see
the road, an open door
I don't know if I'll ever find a place that I can call my home
your arms could make me stop and stay
but until then, I will roam

I will find thoughts belonging to me underneath far away skies
I'll fall into a life for a moment, but after a time again I will answer the cry
of the road going ever on and on, the only safe place to set my feet
cities crumble and nations fade, but the highway never sleeps

a rolling minstrel I will be, I'll wander far and wide
I'll find new tales to tell, new sings to sing
echoing the drifter's cry:
I don't know if I'll ever find a place that I can call my home
your arms could make me stop and stay but until then, I will roam

until then, until then, until your arms hold me close again
until that day, I will roam
Track Name: Western Wind
come and take me, western wind
wrap me in your warm embrace
gentle caress, hold me close
come and take me, western wind

fly me around the world
all the way back to western shores
my haven forevermore
bear me away, take me home

stir the leaves on the grey trees
send the clouds along their way
turn the sky as blue as the sea
come and take me, western wind

fly me around the world
all the way back to western shores
my haven forevermore
bear me away, take me home

no more twilight, lilac and silver
bring me to midsummer's eve
golden magic, sparks and embers
warm breeze rustles the leaves

fly me around the world
all the way back to western shores
my haven forevermore
bear me away, take me home
Track Name: All Things Must End
when I think on these the happiest days of my life
I wish that they would never have to end
for us the time runs short, though we will meet again
someday broken hearts will mend

unwritten notes of songs are drifting through my head
our hands, they fall apart
I go my way
my path it still goes on to these untraveled roads
I go my way and softly say to you -
all things must end

all the harm I've ever done, it was to none but me
to stay and rest my time is not yet come
but since it falls unto my lot, I leave these loving days
these wonder days
these days for now are done

unwritten notes of songs are drifting through my head
our hands, they fall apart
I go my way
my path it still goes on to these untraveled roads
I go my way and softly say to you -
all things must end

there are still whole worlds to find
and though this is all I want, I know there is still more I must do
and because your world is not the one I seek
I still won't set my hopes on you

unwritten notes of songs are drifting through my head
our hands, they fall apart
I go my way
my path it still goes on to these untraveled roads
I go my way, but I'll be back one day -

even wandering must end
