Track Name: Primrose
A primrose grew in my garden.
Its small petals reflected the light towards me.
I was amazed.

It sings a soothing song
To a world that has gone wrong.
It shook a ghoul.

A blizzard fled before that tiny little flower,
The winds have gone behind the tower
And the snow had melted into a flood.

Blood starts boiling in my veins
And my limbs are moving again
Because of a primrose,
That enhances my body
With magic to us unknown.

It stands on a plain that's coloured in green and white
Surrounded by the ones alike
And brightens up the sight.
Track Name: Late Dawn
Stone cold morning.
The chill of winter and freezing wind,
In my domain they're roaming.
Through clouds a ray of sunlight
Beats me with warmth.

Disseminating landscape like the one in the painting,
Late dawn with my eyes is twitching.
Scattering grace through the nature,
Sunshine acts like it's fiction.

Spreading the allure of the winter,
Late dawn acts like it's fiction.

Shine on!
Warm up my heart! Warm up my heart!
Track Name: The Maiden Of The Yellow House
...And she dances forever
In the field of my dreams,
Where the slopes of her golden hair
Fall over her pale gentle shoulders.

With her smile she succumbed me
To herself like a hound.
Her diamond eyes shine bright like thousand suns
And bind me to her soul.

And she dances forever
In the field of my dreams,
Where the slopes of her golden hair
Fall over her gentle pale shoulders.

When she lays with him,
My illusions are violently shattered
As she smiles in the hands of another.

She dwells where angels reside
And I am hers forever.
Through my heart flows the never-ending love.
