certain parts (1999)

01 CAN'T RELATE TO OUR RELATIONSHIP ANY MORE
02 FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND
03 MAN FOR CERTAIN PARTS
04 AGE OF NEW PLEASURE
05 YOUR FAMOUS BED
06 FROM ABOVE
07 AWAY
08 WHEN THE SUN SHINES
09 LOOKS GOOD BUT IT'S SAD
10 DIFFERENT FACES
11 WHO WILL PAY YOUR FARE?
12 THE SAILS OF MY SOUL

12 THE SAILS OF MY SOUL

The sun is going down
The fishermen are dragging
Their boats to the water, my love
Upon the promenade
All kinds of people swagger
They’ve come from the hotels above

And as I turned my eyes
Towards the horizon
I saw all the sails on the sea
I was sitting there enraptured
By the spirit of silence
That came across the waters to me

Your life was an open book
When we came from our small towns
Your love was a secret though
Until you took my arm
In order not to fall down
On Lisbon’s streets of cobblestone

You opened up your heart
You showed me your weak side
Your strength and your passion too
There’s nothing that I know
That compares with your sweetness
There’s no-one I trust more than you

There’s people in the country
Laughing and reeling
Dressed in their sunday best
The early days are gone
But still there’s a feeling
I get when I think of the west

My horses are unsaddled
My music’s on hard disk
Everything’s under control
Now all I gotta do
Is wait for your dark eyes
To shine through the sails of my soul
