Track Name: Come Back
Come back ! There's so much waiting for you here,
Come back, and just see for yourself my dear
A bright sun is clearing the fog, sap is rising
And spring's turning everything beautifully green

Come back ! It's too hard to be keeping
Come back ! All this joy to myself
I wish oceans could shrink, that my could reach over
And lift you up to pick up right where we left it...

The other day, I heard
A freely improvised love song from a bird
I witnessed the wedding of two Westmount pigeons
The ground was all covered in rice, I could swear

Come back, there are so many things to share
Come back, 'cause it's only for you I care
I need a good reason to cook for an army
And I know that you are so hungry, oh baby

Come back ! Light is pouring from everywhere
Come back ! Tell me, why are you still there?
I thought about paving a bridge between Brisbane and Montreal
But it might fall

I can only dream about the day when you'll be here
But meanwhile, I can still try my best to make you come back

The other day, I heard

I need a good reason to cook for an army
And I know that you are so hungry, oh baby

Come back ! Tell me, why are you still there?

But meanwhile, I can still try my best to make you come back

There's so much waiting for you here,
Come back, and just see for yourself my dear
A bright sun is clearing the fog, sap is rising
And spring's turning everything golden and green.
Track Name: Leap of Faith
I'm so sorry I let you down
Time lies waiting, I hear no sound from you
I called you baby one last time
Binding, breaking, I turned away from you,

And I took a leap of faith
A heap of love, and so much more from you
I took a leap of faith
A heap of hope, and left you none

I'm so sorry I had to go
Body failing, mind opening to a 'no'
Buried deeply, longing to hide
Softly singing, I hear the sound of me,

And I took a leap of faith
A heap of love, and so much more from you
I took a leap of faith
A heap of hope, and left you none
Track Name: Va et vient
Va et vient
Va et vient

À la fermeture, je m'acharne à labourer
Le coeur de mon bois silencieux
Je me contracte et rêve de l'écorce lisse
D'un tronc qui n'a jamais, jamais vécu l'hiver

Va et vient
Va et vient

À l'ouverture, je laisse la blessure des saisons
Faire entrer la lumière
Une famille entière s'installe au nid douillet qui est le creux
Le creux de mon coeur vivant

À l'ouverture, je laisse la blessure des saisons
Faire entrer la lumière
En me relâchant, je sens
Le bec acéré d'un picbois creuser ma paroi

À l'expiration, je suis plus grande que moi.

Va et vient
Va et vient
Track Name: Lullaby
Close your heavy eyes
Time to go
Fold in the night
Today's woe

Wind down
Down you go, way below
Your mind sounding like
A distant flow

Let yourself be carried far from your home
Let your wings take you to the peaceful unknown
And you'll be walking in strange places
And you'll see houses so peculiar yet familiar
And you'll be dreaming

Of lynx talking and pianos burning in wild fires
Crazy elevators falling,
Hovering over a childhood scene
As if the wind suddenly lifted your body slowly

Could it be just the same
When we
Surrender to a final sleep? (repeat)

Close your heavy eyes
Time to go
Fold in the night
Today's woe

Close your heavy eyes
Time to go
Drop in the night
All you know
