Reflections





















01. Orpheus Τραγούδι: Raining Pleasure
Μουσική: Μάνος Χατζιδάκις | Στίχοι: Dorian Rudnytsky
Soul on fire I dared the gods | My shadow is your guide | Through the hollow and I came, you pause | Follow me | Up the hill, so hard, so hard | To keep you from my eyes | Have to turn around and see your face | Follow me | Come star of dawn | Come fall of night  Come follow me | I follow you through a broken dream | I’ve set my sail | So hard to wait | To see your face | Though I’ve been warned «never turn around»

02. The Day Τραγούδι: Raining Pleasure
Μουσική: Μάνος Χατζιδάκις | Στίχοι: Brian Corrigan
Sitting in the time of day when the sun is very warm | Dreaming in a kind of way that a dream is always born | Drifting with the things I feel when I put away my will | Sleeping in the time of day when the sun is very still | I’m alone here with you | Take my time, take me too | Leaving in the time of day when the sun is getting cold | Walking in the kind of way when a story has been told | Walking through the things I love and my heart is very still | Hoping that I’ll dream again and I cannot live until

03. Love Her Τραγούδι: Raining Pleasure
Μουσική: Μάνος Χατζιδάκις | Στίχοι: Brian Corrigan
Love her | Love her from the spring time | Love her for the days that you live | Kiss her | Kiss her when she’s laughing | Kiss her for the nights that you love | And you will know | How very special | It’s to love her | And she can feel | The loving grow | With every day you live | Know her, | Know the way she’s feeling | Know that if you love her she’s yours | Hold her | Hold her when she’s crying | Hold her till your hearts mend the wound | Keep her till she’s smiling | Never let it rain on your love | And you will know | How very special | It is to love her | And she can feel | The loving grow | With every kiss you give | Love her, | Love her | Love her from the spring time | Love her for the days that you live.

05. Kemal Τραγούδι: Raining Pleasure
Μουσική: Μάνος Χατζιδάκις | Στίχοι: Martin Fulterman
This is the story of foolish Prince Bass Fiddle and wise Jerry Kemal. | As you remember, last time, the Prince was found without a dime on the Ponce Valdez while Jerry watched from a tree... | In the land of Ali Baba near the Sea of Babalee, | Lived a man who played the zither with a pronoun on his knee | He would dance among the fuzzy trees and bring the birds to life | And his name was Prince Bass Fiddle and he loved his ugly wife. | He would sing the songs of Lutvee in his very special way | And he puffed tea with his lumpy head and sleep all night and day. | With his turban and his Leicester faced the thieves of Germany | But beware great Prince Bass Fiddle, you I’ll be hanging from a tree. | Fifty days and nights they waited for a sign from old Ratan | To pretend to wear the colours of the Emperor Charlie Chan | So they strolled into the forest with a song and energy | To find bay leaves in the cauldron of the mad witch Betty Lee. | Came the answer from a leaf top that was found upon the ground | "Only time and Prince Bass Fiddle will repair your bellies round. | Search the highlands search the lowlands, cruise the Sea of Babalee, | But remember that your children need the food from filigree." | Then one day in Abalone came a messenger to say | that onion-head Bass Fiddle broke in half no more to play. | Will we lose our land of Lutvee to the bearded men of Cleaves? | Only miracles can save us and some tricks inside our sleeves. | From the sky there was an answer to the question of the plebes | "You will meet a tall dark stranger wearing black and blue cannives. | Who is Lucy, who is Nestor? We should only be there now. | Why it’s Aphrodite Milton and his keeper Prince Kemal. | Goodnight Kemal. This World will never change…Goodnight.

06. Dedication Τραγούδι: Raining Pleasure
Μουσική: Μάνος Χατζιδάκις | Στίχοι: Clifton Nivison
Feels like I’m getting older | I’m not afraid | All though I’m worlds apart from yesterday | And yet I can’t believe I’m old enough today | To be in love, and feel in love | And see if love is the way | I don’t need fancy places | To spend the time, | I’m happy just to be here | With you tonight | And yet I’m not so sure | The time is really right | To be in love, and feel in love | And see if love is alright. | And you will sing | As long as there’s a song | The feeling’s never gone | It was the first time to be in love | Maybe tomorrow I’ll never sing again | But I’ll remember when | It was the first time to be in love | The picture’s slowly fading | And now it’s gone, | The letters we remembered are old and torn | And although the time has passed | The memory lingers on | To be in love, and feel in love | And know when love is gone

07. The Three Answers Οργανικό
Μουσική: Μάνος Χατζιδάκις

08. Street Song Τραγούδι: Raining Pleasure
Μουσική: Μάνος Χατζιδάκις | Στίχοι: Brian Corrigan
Everyone is laughing together and the day is passing | Merry like a party laughing, sidewalks overflow | Over the crowded streets the people dancing | Singing as the go | Dance through the shops on the streets of all the parties crazy | Whirling like a spinning daydream, spinning you away | Over the crowded streets, the music is soaring | While the people play.

09. Bitter Way Τραγούδι: Raining Pleasure
Μουσική: Μάνος Χατζιδάκις | Στίχοι: Brian Corrigan
Walk me to a window | and I’ll show you what I hear | Hold me in thimble | And you’ll hold me very near. | I’ve been up and down | Experience it is something that you can buy | Cause the arms that held you yesterday | Where telling you a lie | Maybe I’m a dancer | Out I wish could stop for you dear

10. Noble Dame Τραγούδι: Raining Pleasure
Μουσική: Μάνος Χατζιδάκις | Στίχοι: Dorian Rudnytsky
She was a lady once of noble name, noble dame | She has a silver ring from her king | Give her a nickel, take her out to dine, give her wine | Comfort her if she sighs and then cries | Look for her by the fountain on the road, say hello | Don’t be afraid to smile and then go | And if you see her talking to herself all alone | Leave her alone, her heart is at home | She was a lady once without a care, golden hair | She was the only friend of the king | Maybe she’ll come and ask you for your name, noble dame | We’ll give our love to her on her way
