erk magosh This ep will stand on it's own. A raw emotional recording, it may in a way be more exciting that Bui's later more polished records because it highlights the pure talent and the ability of Bui to put every part of herself into a recording. You can hear the real emotions that it took to write and record this record. One must question their own humanity if they are not moved by this recording. Favorite track: I Love You.

Track Name: Smile
Smile
For we've only a short while
To dance and sing
To dance and sing
So dance and sing
With me

Kiss me
And I'll try not to wonder if you'll miss me
Tomorrow, if you'll miss me tomorrow
(Will you miss me tomorrow?)
Just kiss me
Today

Hold me
But remember to let me go
In the morning
I must go in the morning
It is fate we shall meet again
Some day

We are all connected by a cause
We'll never be alone as long as we
Grow

Healing
When it's done with sincere feeling
It could only bring
Out the best things
In you and
Me

Breathe in
Let the things that you can't see in
Then transform him
Form the words and
Sing with me

We are all connected by a cause
We'll never be alone as long as we
Grow
Track Name: I Love You
The first step to happiness
The first step to happiness is
Believe it, believe it
Believe it, believe it

The first step is happiness
The first step is happiness
We need it, we need it
We need it, we need it

In this room
Where I first held you
Lies a truth

In this womb
Where I once held you
Grows a truth

I love you
I love you
I love you
Track Name: Wildfire
This love is a' burnin'
Just you try and control it

Though rain is a fallin'
Can't ya hear the thunder callin'?

You could duck for cover
If that would spare you pretty lover

This heart is a chainsaw
Well-sharpened for a fall

Is this life or limb
Worth the tourniquet
Or just burns to admit
That I, I love him

These flames are a ragin'
Ten thousand men couldn't tame 'em

These skies are so gray and
We're havin' trouble breathin'

Is this life or limb
Worth the oxygen
Or just burns to admit
That I, I love him

The mountains are screamin'
The deserts are seein' red

But here in my small tent
I'm tryin' not to get wet

I though I could prevent
What hadn't happened yet
Tryin' to forget
That I, I love him

Is this life or limb
Worth the oxygen
Or just burns to admit
That I, I love him
Track Name: Shadows
If the shadows on the wall aren't real
How does it feel to be
Blinded by the light?

Do we choose to believe
The new truth that we see
Or do we
Close our eyes?

If the shadows on the wall aren't real
How does it feel to be
Dreaming through the night?

Do we choose to believe
The new truths that we see
Or do we
Analyze?

Hold me, please
I've seen my wildest dreams
Never to be
The same again

If the shadows on the wall aren't real
How would it feel if I
Kissed you in the light?

Would we know that it's real
The love that we feel
Or would we
Yield in pride?

Kiss me, please
You're in my wildest dreams
Never to be
The same again

If the shadows on the wall aren't real
How does it feel to be
In the line of fire?

Do we choose to believe
What we do would bring peace
Or do we
Stand and fight?

Join me please
I do believe in peace
This world could be
The same again
Track Name: So Long
Baby's here
Baby's gone
Ain't no use
In hangin' on

So long

Ain't no blame
In who you are
It's just a shame
You need to be so far away from me

Honey bee

The one's I love
Are shooting stars
They're in my heart
Even while I'm in the dark

In the dark

Unknown road ahead of me
So much world out there to see
That sometimes it's heartbreaking
Cuz I know
Someday I'll have to go

But listen friends
Just listen friends
Nothin' never
Really ends

Heaven
It happens
In moments
Just like this
Even when
We forget

But listen friends
I'll say it again
Nothin' never
Really ends

Heaven
It happens
In moments
Just like this
Even when
We forget

Baby's here
Baby's gone
Ain't no use
In hangin' on

So long

So long
