Track Name: Extraordinary
I say that you're extraordinary
But you're afraid that you are not all that you could be
Well you don't have to make it on your own
‘Cause I am on your side

And here, in this ordinary moment
On this, a very ordinary day
I see with you a life that flows with wonder
So take my hand, let's let it carry us away

You say that I'm extraordinary
But I'm afraid that things are not what they appear to be
Now I don't have to face it on my own
'Cause you are on my side

And here, in this ordinary moment
On this, a very ordinary day
I see with you a life that flows with wonder
So take my hand, let's let it carry us away

Take my hand, let's let it carry us away
Track Name: Nova Love
Even in your silence it rings out
The tallest endless wall of screaming sound
I'm exploding

Even in your hiding it can't be helped
Brilliance spills out underneath your guarded door
And it's so warm

So when you're near me
It's like I'm swallowed by the sun
And in your eyes I am burning

Fireflies in the summer sky
A white flash like a thousand dreams alive
And if you try you might just catch a few
So why keep your world apart
A star-bursting blast about to start
Burning hard my nova love

Even when you're searching in the dark
Answers fly like lightning bolting through my heart
And I'm found

So when you're near me
It's like I'm swallowed by the sun
And in your eyes I am burning

Fireflies in the summer sky
A white flash like a thousand dreams alive
And if you try you might just catch a few
So why keep your world apart
A star-bursting blast about to start
Burning hard my nova love

Let me into your world tonight
I wanna feel your soul ignite

Let me into your world tonight
I wanna feel your soul ignite
(I can feel you, I can feel you
I can feel your heart I can feel your soul)

I can feel you, I can feel you
I can feel your heart, I can feel your soul
(Love burning hard)

I can feel you, I can feel you
I feel your heart, I feel your soul tonight
(Love burning hard)

Oh and when you're near me
It's like I'm swallowed by the sun
And in your eyes I am burning

Fireflies in the summer sky
A white flash like a thousand dreams alive
And if you try you might just catch a few
So why keep your world apart
A star-bursting blast about to start
Burning hard my nova love

Burning hard my nova love
Burning hard my nova love
Track Name: Still the Tulips
There were stars in the kitchen of my heart
And we swilled wine like lifeblood, sacredly
Will you remember when you've grown old?
And all your friends have gone on home?

I'm not asking for you to stay here
There's no here here anymore
All the stars are spreading faster than your memory can run
But still the tulips
And still the time

There are scars on the seashores of our love
But just like glass, they're smoothened by the tides
And I am sorry I let you down
And made things harder for you now

I'm not asking for you to stay here
There's no here here anymore
All the currents in all the oceans cannot bring back what was lost
But still the tulips
And still the time

(Oooo)

There's a car on a train that never stops
Its windows show the things that we have dreamed
And there's a station where no one waits
To see the light grow through the haze

I'm not asking for you to stay here
There's no here here anymore
But it won't matter ‘cause I'll remember
'Til they come to take me home

But still the miles
Still the miles
Still the miles
Track Name: Slow Dance Slow
Maybe it all ends
Right here tonight
And all that's left will be
Me and the starlight
Maybe I'll float away from here
Without you dear
Hold me anyway

Slow, dance slow with me
Heart to heartbeat
Slow, dance slow
One more time

Sing me a lullaby
In my ear now
The moon is black tonight
And my head is full
Make it all fade away
Like only you can do
Say it'll be okay

Slow, dance slow with me
Heart to heartbeat
Slow, dance slow
One more time

My hand in yours
Your cheek on mine
Time's restless sand can fall
Around us tonight

When I was a child
Long before we met
I twirled alone with you
I could feel you there
So if you now must go
Let me have this one hope
You'll come meet me there

Slow, dance slow with me
Heart to heartbeat
Slow, dance slow
One more time
Slow, dance slow with me
Heart to heartbeat
Slow, dance slow
One more time

I dreamed that we were in a ballroom
Dressed up tie and gown
Tethered and winding, spinning and shining
Like angels floating down

We danced the night away
We danced the night away
We danced the night away
We danced the night away

We danced all time away
We danced all time away
We danced all time away
We danced all time away

Slow, dance slow
One more time
Slow, dance slow with me
Heart to heartbeat
