Lyrics

Smitten

Written By: Conor Lyons and Indira Ortiz

Is it the way you're smiling
even when sunshine turns to grey
Is it the way you hold my hand
and say it's okay
Well all that I can say is that when
I look into your eyes I see
a brand new day that's full of promise and possibility

Is it the way you give me
without expecting in return
Is it the gentle loving way
you teach me to learn
Well all I can say is that when you
look into my eyes you'll see
a brand new day that's full of
promise and possibility

Nostalgia

Written By: Conor Lyons and Indira Ortiz

English:
In a sigh , in a dream
as the evening falls
breeze of the sea
In the solitude I find
memories of a home left behind

Your voice
calls out to me
I miss you so
return to me

In a sigh , in a dream
as the evening falls
breeze of the sea
Things that lead me to believe
that my island's calling
to me

Para ti una cancion

Written By: Conor Lyons and Indira Ortiz

Cuando yo pienso en la maravilla que eres tu
Sale di mi alma para ti una cancion
Siento la paz que solo tu me puedes dar
Y siento el gozo de tu amor.

Y aunque suba el alta mar
Se que en tus manos voy a estar
Y asi como la flor del campo
Las quez del cielo y el pez el mar
Yo solo se que tu eres mi pastor
Y nada me faltara

Cuando yo pienso en la maravilla que eres tu
Sale di mi alma para ti una cancion
Siento deseos de danzar y de reir
Y alzo mis manos en adoracion
