Track Name: I Who Have Nothing
I who have
Must believe in spring

I used to visit
All the very gay places,
And joy and happiness
Were among my habits.

Now I have lost
All my folks,
My line is cut.
All I keep
Is all my hopes
For the wheel of life.

I was a young girl,
I was your sister,
Young lady,
And dignity and respect
Were among our habits.

I used to visit them all,
My fellows on the hill.
Such beauty on our faces,
And now the wheel of life.

Here I am,
Landed far away,
I who have
Track Name: There Was A Child
There was a child, looking for his grandmother’s house.
He never had a chance to look into her eyes
And see what was deeply inside her soul.
He knew she had something special,
And went to see her house.

He crossed the borders of the South,
Dreamed of those windows,
From where she could see the streets,
Full of people living there
From the beginning of time.

That street surprisingly full of sounds:
Children, pedlars, horses, stagecoaches,
That street full of life.

He had dreamed of those sounds,
And could clearly imagine those
Who were living there
From the beginning of time.
