Track Name: Strange Daze
I’m climbing a mountain
Sailin’ the sea
Lookin’ for an answer
That nobody knows
But me

And she says listen
Listen to me
‘Cause it’s a strange daze
But you’ll find peace
You’ll find peace
You’ll find your place
You’ll find your place

Keep going in circles
Runnin’ around
Trying to catch up … but
I just keep falling down

But she says listen
Listen to me
‘Cause it’s a strange daze
But you’ll find peace

Don’t tell me
What to do [ echo don’t tell me anything ]
You can’t tell me
Where to go
Don’t tell me
What to do, no [ echo don’t tell me anything ]
Can’t tell me,
What I already know…

I’m climbing a mountain
Sailin’ the sea
Lookin’ for an answer
That nobody knows
But me

And she says listen
Listen to me
‘Cause it’s a strange daze
A strange daze
It’s a strange daze

Track Name: Angel of the Morning
There'll be no strings to bind your hands
not if my love can't bind your heart

And there's no need to take a stand
for it was I who chose to start.

I see no need to take me home,
I'm old enough to face the dawn

Just call me angel of the morning angel
just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby
Just call me angel of the morning angel
then slowly turn away from me

Maybe the sun's light will be dim
and it won't matter anyhow

If morning's echo says we've sinned,
well, it was what I wanted now

And if we're the victims of the night,
I won't be blinded by light

Just call me angel of the morning angel
just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby
Just call me angel of the morning angel
just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby

Instrumental Solo

Just call me angel of the morning angel
just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby
Just call me angel of the morning angel
Then slowly turn away from me...

Just call me angel
Just call me angel
Track Name: Gypsy Butterfly (feat. Trance Blackman) - Take Me Away
Take me away with you
Take me away

You fill me with your passion
Breathe new life into my dreams
Make my spirit soar to heaven
All else fades away, so it seems...

Take me away with you
Take me away
Take me away with you
Take me away

Through your eyes I saw your soul
In a single moment, time it froze
No words spoken, yet in a glance
Your heart revealed, left me in a trance...

Take me away with you
Take me away

Instrumental Solo

Take me away with you
Take me away
Take me away with you
Take me away

Track Name: Trance Blackman (feat. Gypsy Butterfly) - Butterfly
CHORUS/INTRO
White butterfly dances free on the breeze
For a wandering heart goes anywhere it pleases
See the butterfly dancing soft on the wind
Searching for a bed of roses...

'Cause I believe what I see, when I see you
It's the deepest of understanding
Oh would you believe me, if I told you
That I believe in you...

CHORUS

'Cause I see clearly now I see, these thoughts that were mine
Found a deeper understanding
Oh would you believe me, if I told you
That I believe in you...

INSTRUMENTAL SOLO

BRIDGE
Don't believe the words uttered out of fear
Don't believe it
You shall find, discover what it is I see in you...

CHORUS

'Cause I believe what I see, when I see you
It's the deepest of understanding
Oh would you believe me, if I told you
That I believe in you...

CHORUS

Track Name: Trance Blackman (feat. Gypsy Butterfly) - Soul Survivor
Soul Survivor
By Trance Blackman

I was given no warning
I was given no chance
To say... good-bye.
And now all that remains, is the question: Why?

I awake in the morning
See your picture on the wall
It makes... me cry
But I know with some time, that I will get by

BRIDGE
Only want to hold you once more
To tell you “I Love You”
Only want to see into your perfect eyes again...

CHORUS
‘Cause I am your soul survivor
You will never be too far from me
I am your soul survivor
Your memory will live on inside of me... always

So what awaits me tomorrow?
Should I go on with my life?
I’ll live for you...
Sometimes I hear your name, how I do miss you...

Now I laugh and I can sing
There is love still in my heart
And it makes me cry...
But I know you are safe, no regrets, no lie

Track Name: Real Me [The Fantabulous Mix]
Real Me
by Trance Blackman & Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly)

I was trying to find my own place
Wondering where I'd fit in
Playing your game didn't work for me
So I made my own rules to win

A small child with such big dreams
Lost in a world of fear
No one to come stand beside me
To show me that they believed

Now I believe

CHORUS
I was good enough just being me
Who I was and what was inside
Good enough just being me
And that's something just couldn't see
The real me
Oh, the real me

An angel came and touched my pain
Showing me someone cared
Leaving a life far behind me
That no one even seemed to share

Now I compare

CHORUS

INST. BREAK

BRIDGE
Good enough
Yes I was good enough

CHORUS

I'm good enough just being me
Who I am and what is inside
I'm good enough just being me
And it's something I want the world to see
Yeah, the real me
Yeah, the real me
Oh, the real me
