Track Name: I'm In Love With You
As the wind that hugs the tree
As the moonlight that is touching your hair
So my heart will touch your heart, my love
They’ll dance in a pair

Let me be your bed at night
Let me be your shadow in the day
Let me give you all I that can give
Sweet lover’s play

I’m in love with you
As the sun spreads its rays to the earth
My kisses will too

Let me be forever yours
Let us grow together old my love
Only you can fill my soul with joy
You are my joy
Track Name: Nokjva Dojdi Mi
Ноќва дојди ми, мир донеси ми
копнежот во гради што ми вие, смири ми
Уште донеси, медни бакнежи
сушава во душава ти со нив натопи

И доближи се, не стој далечна
да те гледам, да те допрам, да те чувствувам
Ти подари ми, топли мигови
и во зори како птица ти одлетај ми

Ако доаѓаш, свила облечи
да ми бидеш како вила, к'о самовила
И накити си сјајни гердани
да си лична, да си мила, како богиња

Ако не идеш, писмо прати ми
да го читам, да те мислам, да те сонувам
И напиши ми, зборо'и убави
да ме галат, да ми милат, да ме разнежат
Track Name: I'm Waiting
I’m waiting, I’m waiting for you
I’m longing, I’m dreaming of you
I’m crying, never dying
I’m waiting for you

The sounds of my heart are so blue
The tears of my soul – for you
I’m lonely, I wish only
I don’t wake again

And again I kneel and pray for you
And again – I talk to you
To you, to you

I’m praying, I’m begging - for you
Can you hear me, can you hear my heart blue
I’m calling, I’m calling
I’m calling for you
Track Name: The Light
As it rains, slow down the street,
Tears from my eyes roll down my face
As the rain, washes the street
So my heart is, cleaned by the tears

Sometimes I feel, presence of Light
Beauty inside, I know it's gift, given to me
Sometimes I do, see through that Light
See deep inside, and what I see, is you and me.

As the sun, spread out its rays
So is the Light, lighting in me
As the warmth, comes from the sun
So I feel warmth, from the King of Suns
