Track Name: Owl Girl
Hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo

Porcupines are awfully nice
But you risk a little prick
And foxes are so cool and sly
But you might just get a trick
Myself, I'm more an owl girl
High-flying, night-time chick

Hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo

Bears and bobcats are just fine
If you like that sort of thing
And squirrels and mice they do alright
But they can't really sing
Myself, I'm more an owl girl
Come slip under my wing

Hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo

The night is yours
Owl girl
Hoo-hoo, to the wind
Drop to the floor
Owl girl
Hoo-hoo, to begin

Hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo (x2)

Curl those claws and
Take a pause
Become like darkness, too
Feathers flutter
Rabbits mutter
Don't let those nasty bunnies
Get to you

The night is yours
Owl girl
Hoo-hoo, to the wind
Drop to the floor
Owl girl
Hoo-hoo, to begin

The night is yours (Hoo)
Owl girl (Hoo)
Hoo-hoo, to the wind (Hoo)
Drop to the floor
Owl girl
Hoo-hoo, to begin
Track Name: Orpheus
He sang me a song
Said I was his muse
He asked for it all
How could I refuse?

Oh, he charmed all the rocks to dance
No, I did not stand a chance
I gave myself over to lust
Orpheus

A widow he was
But true he remained
Why did he wind me up
Only to refrain
I thought he sang to me
But she thought the same
And yet another one
Thought he called her name

Oh, not even the sirens could win
He never let anyone in
But sang all the love out of us
Orpheus
Orpheus

Could not go on with that voice in my ear
Taunting and teasing, but never near
Me and my sisters, we pulled him apart
One took his hand and another his heart
Put them in his grave
For the nightingale to serenade
But the mournful song
Kept singing on and on

Now his lyre plays on in the sky
His voice in each whisper and sigh
I beg to return to the dust
Orpheus
Orpheus
Orpheus
Orpheus
Track Name: Are You Listening?
Hello? Are you listening?
I wanna tell you something
Gotta get it off my back
I did a bad thing
I did a bad thing
And I wanna make it right, I do
But I need a little help from you

Oh, how do I start again?
When no one's there to be my friend
How do I start again?
When I already know how it ends?

Hello? Are you still listening?
I went and married you
Because I couldn't break your heart
I did a bad thing
Oh, what a bad thing
And either way we're gonna lose
What is there left for me to choose?

Oh, how do I start again?
When no one's there to be my friend
How do I start again?
When I already know how it ends?

And I can't find a way
To have it both ways
And it hurts me to say
I'm leaving today

How do I start again
When you're not there to be my friend

How do I start again
When I already know how it ends?
How do I start again
How do I, how do I, how do I
Start again
How do I, how do I, how do I, how do I
How do I start again
When you're not there to be my friend
Track Name: The Key
A long time ago
I locked something away
I can't remember what it was
But I know I'll find it someday
And when I do
I will come for you and say
I remember

I have tried every key that I own on this door
But it won't open for me
It won't open
I have knocked real loud
I've rung the bell, ding-dong
It still won't open for me
No, it won't open

Oh, won't you please help me
To find the key?

Wait a minute, now, it's comin' back to me
The day you left I locked myself
And now I am as you see
But if I can, I'll return to be
As I remember

But I have tried every key that I own on this door
And it won't open for me
No, it won't open
I have knocked real loud
I've rung the bell, ding-dong
It still won't open for me
No, it won't open

Oh, won't you please help me
To find the key?

Maybe I'm better off not knowin'
What it was I left inside
Maybe I'd better be goin'
Leave that key among the others to hide
And maybe I've thought all of this before
And maybe I will do it all again
Maybe I'll find another door
Maybe I'll finally get in

I have tried every key that I own on this door
But it won't open for me
It won't open
I have knocked real loud
I've rung the bell, ding-dong
It still won't open for me
No, it won't open

Oh, won't you please help me
To find the key?
Oh, won't you please help me
To find the key?
Track Name: Galapagos Song
Where you goin' little bird?
Where you goin' little bird?
All alone in all the world?
All alone in all the world?
Flyin' low across the sea
Flyin' low across the sea
Far from where you oughtta be
Far from where you oughtta be
Don't you even know you're lost?
Don't you even know you're lost?
Underneath the Southern Cross?
Underneath the Southern Cross?

Divin' deep will get you nowhere now
Nowhere now, don't you see?
Nowhere now
Nowhere now's what you need

Where you goin' little girl?
Where you goin' little girl?
All alone in all the world?
All alone in all the world?
Flyin' low across the sea
Flyin' low across the sea
Far from where you oughtta be
Far from where you oughtta be
Don't you even know you're lost?
Don't you even know you're lost?
Underneath the Southern Cross?
Underneath the Southern Cross?

Divin' deep will get you nowhere now
Nowhere now, don't you see?
Nowhere now
Nowhere now's what you need
