Alex Seldon Was lucky enough to find a vinyl copy of this release, From 'Bracken', which I cherish. Wonderful vocals often layered, wonderfully fragile sounding at times but with a strong sense of heart. Was a fine introduction for me to Haruko's music and was even happier to find the rest of her music here on Bandcamp, essential listening.

Track Name: Welcome to Loveland
close your eyes and take my hand / follow me to a place where night has no end / the night shows all the secrets that the daylight is trying to hide / when we are asleep we have to fight against / all the monsters and dragons that are hiding from the light / but don't worry my lover it's going to be alright / our love will protect us from the dangers of our dreams / it will take us to places where nothing is how it seems / it will be our personal wonderland / no white rabbits and no labyrinth / a fairytale with happy end for me and you my beloved boyfriend / so let's go let's go / trust your heart and follow me to this hidden place / just in case you love me as i love you
Track Name: Spring in Our Lungs
The air smells like the spring will come soon / and we will take our clothes off in the full moon / we'll watch the stars and see the sunrise / and in the dawn we'll hear the field mice / the wind plays harp on the trees around us in which the birds sing along to the sound of the sea and the rain and the melody of woken love / the morning comes with hope and new life / the blossoms wait for the sun to arise / the dewdrops shine like silver gemstones / and everything looks just like new-born / the wind plays harp on the trees around us in which the birds sing along to the sound of the sea and the rain and the melody of woken love
Track Name: Man in the Moon
where is your smile and where are your shining eyes / you used to be my melody, my sun, my light in the dark / now where have you gone? you have gone into the dark / now when i think of you i think of sad eyes / i think of dark coulds and gray skies / i think of shadows and moonlight and i think of tears and of dark nights / won't you come back into / won't you come back into / won't you come back into the light / you used to sing me songs about the moon / now you have gone so far away into the night / and sometimes when the moon is shining bright i think i see you sitting there / now when i think of you i think of sad eyes / i think of dark coulds and gray skies / i think of shadows and moonlight and i think of tears and of dark nights / won't you come back into / won't you come back into / won't you come back into the light
Track Name: Autumn, Golden Trees
In the forest you can see the magic of harvest when the trees are giving their fruits to the animals and the men / what a pleasure it is to see the treasures falling out of brown leaves and turning to gold as they fall / wind come and take me to the island where autumn lasts forever and where i can sleep in the trees / don't come looking for me i'm outside searching feathers to build a pair of wings and let the wind take me away / oh, take me away come take me away to a place where i can live and where, where i can breathe / oh, the wind came took my feathers away to bury them in the ocean and i've got to stay and dream...
Track Name: The Bright Lights
let go, let go of the magic birds / let go let go of the magic birds / they are asleep now but soon they'll wake / they'll spread their wings and then they'll break the cage / you don't know what a bird's heart feels / you don't know what a bird's heart feels / well, i remember a time when the owls were singing / now their song has turned into a cry / they cry about their broken wings / and they cry cause they cannot fly / oh, how i wish i could fix their broken wings / oh, how i wish i could fix those broken wings / but the bright lights have frightened the owls / the bright lights have frightened the owls / and the cages have broken their wings / now they will never fly again / and they will never sing again
Track Name: Morning Dreams
i told the birds to sing me to sleep and i told the moon to watch over me / and i fell asleep so very gently my dreams felt like god's own fantasy / and then the morning light pulled my dreams aside i was wide awake and i heard a voice that cried / wake up wake up this day's not waiting for you / wake up wake up my love / i know i know dreams often feel better than life but you cannot hide / i got up to welcome the sunlight / my cat was asleep cause she danced all night / on the rooftops and in the backyards with shining eyes and soundless paws / and she sang life is beautiful don't you see / life is beautiful come with me / life is beautiful when you dance! / come and dance with me now / come and dance with me / we're gonna dance all night long and then we'll sing the dancing song / we're gonna sing the dancing song / and then the wind will be singing with us and / the stars will be dancin with us and / the moon will be laughing with us and all the night will be happy with us
Track Name: The Mountain Adventure
on my way to the mountains i felt like i'd lost a million dollars but all i lost was my heart / i think i gave it to you on my way but you didn't want it and you threw it away and i was lost and alone / in the noman's land with nothing in my hand but a little candle that i found in the sand and i cried cried cried / until the night had come and i had to find a place to sleep but the fog made me blind and i didn't know where to go / so i followed the traces of the dogs that led me to some giant rocks where i sang myself to sleep for a while / until i decided to walk another mile or another day but then i heard some voices say / lay down lay down we'll be your security / we think you should stay oh we know you should because the night is dangerous in the wood / and i said no let me go let me go / i am restless and i am sad and i'd rather be walking instead / then suddenly a hundered wolves came out of the dark / their jaws wide open like hungry sharks / and i said noone must get hurt tonight / noone has to die / let me go i'll be your friend / just let me go please let me go / they told me i could go away / they would turn around and i shouldn't stay / they would close their eyes i shouldn't hesitate / when they opened their eyes it would be too late / i ran as fast as i could / as they turned around i was hidden in the wood / but behind me i heard their mournful cry / and i prayed to god i didn't want to die / then suddenly i was surrounded by silence / so i sang a song for the mountains / they answered with an echo that grew louder / so loud that i could barely move / so i walked with my head between my shoulders / afraid that my ears would explode / and so i shouted and cried be quiet / today is not the day to die / i will beg on my knees / would you be quiet please / and then the wind came took the noise away / but still i had nowhere to stay / and i walked on and on until i came / until i came to a path that looked alright and i walked alone through the cold cold night and my heart filled up with loneliness / so i reached for the candle but what i found instead was a little glowworm's shining head who's light was hidden in the grass / i asked him if he could help me find back home he said yes and i did not feel so alone in this frightening dark anymore
Track Name: Winter
silence, snow falling / could you hold my hand, could you hold my heart / while we fall like stars from the sky / hand in hand in the golden light / with open mouths with open hearts / your smiling eyes / make me feel like home / oh, make me feel like i'm home / and snowflakes fall like feathers / silence, snow falling / could you hold my hand, could you hold my heart / while we fall like stars from the sky / hand in hand in the golden light / with open mouths with open hearts
Track Name: The Dragon's Tears
i walked a thousand miles through the desert to look for the sun cause i thought i'd find it there / all i found was the same old darkness just like everywhere / i saw myself fading away in the dust of the day / i felt myself drowning in the sand in the noman's-land / sand was in my mouth and my hair and i searched for water / the water was toxic and it made me sick / i saw waterfalls in the middle of the desert / and i saw a golden sun and i started to run / one, two, three, don't look behind you / four, five, six just go your way / said the voice inside my head / i'd be there at the end of the day/ on my way i met with a dragon who was breathing fire / he said he was called the master of the desert but i called him a liar / he said he could burn everything and so he was the king / he told me with his breath he could turn life to death / so he was bound to stay in the desert for all his life / and he said he would never, never find a wife / tears dropped out of his eyes and he said he prefered to die than being alone for all of his life / and i said one, two, three, don't look behind you / four, five, six, just go your way / you'll find your love in the desert, you'll see she is not far away...
Track Name: Goodbye my Love, Goodbye
my friend my love i've got to leave you now / to go to the town where i was born / my friend oh, my love i've got to leave you now to go back to the town where i was born / to where my mother and my father wait for me to come back home to them / to where my mother and my father wait for me to come back home to them / and i know that it will break my heart, oh i know that it will break my heart / i'll have to go over the mountains / from where i came to live with you my dear / but my heart will be heavy and my legs will fail and all the valleys will be filled with my tears / and all that's left now is just that tiny bird you gave to me / to lead my way back home / and all that i could give was just my heart and a kiss and the tears that i cried on your shoulder / all that's left now is just that tiny bird you gave to me / to lead my way back home / and all that i could give was just my heart and a kiss and the tears that i cried on your shoulder...
