1.Kites
Kites high, high in the sky blue sky
Kites dancing with me
Driven by the wind.
Pulling me,
Leading me,
Changing me,
Teaching me,
(High, high, high)
I learn to read the wind
And where the wind goes,
Eternity is waiting.
Driven by the wind.
Pulling me,
Leading me,
Changing me,
Teaching me.

2.Cards
Dung do do do
Dum ba dung
Ka do do do
Ga do ga
Da dum dum dum
Dun ga ding

Shuffle the deck,
Pick a card
I’ll show you a trick
Show you a great trick
Take you on a magical journey
Illusions: Holding us for a brief moment,
The wonder of it, the surprise.

Shuffle the deck,
Pick a card
I’ll show you a trick
Show you a great trick
Cards full of patterns, chaos,
Full deck, mixed up deck
Everything makes sense in a magic trick.

3. Constellations
The stars are bright and so are you
On a clear night all is clear,
All is understood
When I look up into the dark,
Brilliant, unfathomable Universe
I see magical patterns,
Logical impossibilities.
Questions no one will ever answer.
I am so small but love makes me magnificient
Reaching out and burning into infinity
Like a star,
Like a brilliant star
