1   Fairy Tale 04'42 Nakamura Akikazu

Mislead moonlight
Hit the distant fairy-land
Long time ago, Sleeping Beauty and dwarfs
Went for a voyage deep in the misty woods

Chasing the colorful birds to the east
Over the mountains of some red-eyed beast

Searching for the fairy queen
To dew orbs upon the green
Her magic golden wand

Creeping fowler eyes shine
Took the life of captain dwarf
Leaving dwarfs and Beauty in the dark
Cruel mother smiling with the red apple

Moonbeams on sleeping eyes
Poison-apple in the hand
Mind fading in blue maiden meditation
Beauty sang sweet lullaby in dreams

* repeat

Mislead fairy
Appeared and swang golden wand
Sleeping Beauty opened her eyes and closed
Knowing the Prince is on his way to her

5   Snow that Falls on Vancouver ヴァンクーヴァーに降る雪 05'04 Nakamura Akikazu

White days and nights
I can see again all of the lights
Glistening snow reflects, oh so bright
Take me back to memories of a time
When winterland was oh so grand
I can see that you know it, too...

Skies clear and azure
Summer heat brings no promise dear
Sunshine only hastens my fear
Love is like the snow that falls and collects
Then melts away oh too soon
Ephemeral love Vancouver snow

White days and nights
I can see again all of the lights
Glistening snow reflects oh so bright
Love is like the snow that falls and collects
Then melts away oh too soon
Ephemeral love Vancouver snow
