STORM BIRD - by Kamila Nasr

Vocals: Kamila and Sara Nasr
Guitar: Kamila Nasr

silently you step out of the night, making sure no one can see you,
swiftly you climb up a tree,
and watch with eyes that devour the night,
you're perched waiting for the storm to come

the sky lights up, the trees are like shadows on a yellow sea,
you lift up from your perch,
when the sky lights up again,
you are hovering above me,
in darkness you circle lower and lower,
till i can feel the breath of your wings on my shoulder,
but there's nothing i can do till the storm is over.

silently you return from where you've come,
waiting for the day to be done.

REVERIE - by Sara Nasr

Vocals: Sara and Kamila Nasr
Guitar: Sara Nasr
Flute: Kamila Nasr


Do you dare disturb my little reverie?
After all you done to me, won't you leave me here in peace?

Because i haven't felt this good in years,
the sun's come out and dried up all the rain as well as my tears
and i'm going out into the world once more
gonna find out for myself what all this living's really for.

If you must come by and take a seat by me.
Are we both going to pretend that this sorrow's at an end?
Or are we gonna scream it to the skies up above,
crying to each other about the torture of being in love?
Because my eyes are open now i'm ready to admit
that we have got a problem here, we're both in charge of it.

Well I guess that maybe it would be ok if you didn't go away.
I might like it if you stayed,
but let's not dwell on mistakes of the past.
We've gotta get ready now the future's coming fast
So love me and leave one more time, friend of mine
from now on this whole world is gonna rhyme.
Love me and leave me one more time
from now on my whole life is gonna rhyme

SPIRIT OF THE FOREST- by Sara Nasr

Vocals: Sara and Kamila Nasr
Guitar: Sara Nasr

Where, where are you now,
Spirit of the forest, now that they've cut it down?
I wait to hear you speak to me, to feel you pass right through me
but i don't hear a sound.

And oh, i used to walk along here,
following the river down into the sea
but now my heart lies broken, scattered on the ground with stumps
and branches stretching as far as i can see

They told me this might happen, they said that this could happen
but i was not prepared for what i've seen.
and i fall down to my knees shouting out "Who are they?
Who did this? the killers of the green."

I look up through my tears to see a young man watching my sorrow
he's waiting to be seen and he holds a broken mirror
and says "I wish i could make it clearer that we are
a cog in the machine we're all a cog in the machine."

And he takes my hand and leads me to the river,
and i close my eyes and try to change my reality
and he stares up to the skies and prays for his sanity.
We sit there side by side, we can no longer
say another word to each other
I look back across my life to see i was mistaken
for what i've taken, so much for granted.

Where, where are you now?...

BOUND TO GET A RIDE SOON - by Kamila Nasr

Vocals: Kamila and Sara Nasr
Piano: Kamila Nasr

he smothered you with affection, so you went out there and waited,
you say finally, finally i don't feel so loved,
i say finally i don't feel so alienated.

but then i left this morning grabbing only my guitar,
he told me you don't have to run from paradise,
but just as he's always getting into somebody's life,
i'm always getting into somebody's car

now i'm alone tonight just off the trans canada highway
wandering through some unknown town,
and i'm bound to get a ride soon
i'm winnipeg bound
continued …
but winnipeg ain't getting any closer,
so i stop turning down the sleazy rides,
and it hurts what they say to me,
but i swallow my pride

it's been a crazy year for us,
our paths keep leading us apart,
i was blown out to the west coast

when you finally came somehow i had gotten lost
lost in a crazy city lost in other people's realities,
so you headed for the prairies

so i took off this morning grabbing only my guitar,
he told me don't run from paradise,
but just as he's always getting into somebody's life,
i'm always getting into somebody's car

now i'm alone tonight just off the trans canada highway,
wandering through some unknown town,
and i'm bound to get a ride soon,
i'm winnipeg bound

PRAIRIE BOY - by Sara Nasr

Vocals: Sara and Kamila Nasr
Guitar: Sara Nasr
Mandolin: Sara Nasr
Violin: Ariana Nasr
Brushes: Andy Flinn

In Winnipeg i left my love, i left my love.
I left my love in Winnipeg
He's my prairie boy, I'm calling out his name
calling out his name, from my valley so low
to the mountains up above, i am calling out for love,
calling out for love, calling out for love.

I'm dreaming of that city here in my country home
the ocean here is pretty, but i am on my own
I'm tending to the fire, staring out to sea,
does the man that i desire ever think of me?
In Winnipeg...

I'm waiting for the day when he'll be mine again
until that day my heart is closed to other men.
I'll wear a dress of black and dance down in the bar
till i can make the money to take me back that far.
In Winnipeg...

The day's go by so slowly, i don't know what to do
I pray to God that maybe he's thinking of me too
So Lord if you can hear me, i'm down upon my knees
begging you to tell him to wait for me, wait for me please
In Winnipeg...

SONG FOR MY SISTER - by Kamila Nasr

Vocals: Kamila and Sara Nasr
Guitar: Kamila Nasr

my mind is all whirlin'
you're spinning and swirlin'
through my thoughts since the day i left you,
my body feels hollow i thought you would follow,
you'd follow me through like i told you to do,

now you're gone, so far from my body so close in my mind,
it's so long 'fore i'll see you again
take what i left behind in your memory, in your love

i've gotten so used to the noises around me
their voices surround me and i always hear,
you gave me the love and the friendship i needed
to start in a new life without you here.

but it's hard to make these decisions
to know how to get through,
my guitar i sing with it always
but never with you since we parted open hearted

CALLING ME HOME by Kamila Nasr

Vocals: Kamila and Sara Nasr
Guitar: Kamila Nasr

i left you in arizona, still haven't figured out why,
but flying through those deserts made me cry,
i end up in Victoria, i stayed in all the shelters,
took me two thousand miles to realize that i love you,

but i don't know why i came here, now i don't know why i'm leaving,
maybe it's all fate or maybe i'm still sleeping,
i won't leave here from depression, cause it'll follow me home for sure,
but when i'm feeling lonely i know there's a cure
Nova Scotia's calling me home.....

you told me that i'd miss you I said not half as much as you'll miss me,
but i think about you all the time, you're probably off getting married,
but we knew it wouldn't work out cause we were both in different stages,
i want freedom, you want children, you've been travelling for ages,

but i don't know why i came here now i don't know why i'm leaving,
maybe it's all fate or maybe i'm still sleeping,
every time things get too difficult i take off across the country,
this time i left my love waiting for me at the library,
now arizona's calling me..... continued….

i left you in arizona, i didn't even tell you i was leaving,
but i didn't know my self till i was already flying,
and i wish that i could contact you but i don't know where you're keeping,
i wish you'd contact me but i understand your reasons

i still don't know why i came here, now i don't know why i'm leaving,
maybe it's all fate, but there's gotta be a reason,
i wish that i could justify all these things that i do
but i'll never understand the reason that i left you,
freedom is calling me....

BEAUTIFUL - by Sara Nasr

Vocals: Sara and Kamila Nasr
Guitar: Sara Nasr
Bass: Kamila Nasr, acoustic fretless and bass guitar

If I came here naked, in front of all of you,
what would you say, tell me, what would you do?
Would you say to yourself "This girl, she's got something to prove,
I think she should move, yeah, let's make her move."
Or maybe when you look at me, you'll fill with jealousy,
or maybe you'll just smile to yourself and say;

My god she's beautiful, she's beautiful, she's beautiful
My god she's beautiful, she's beautiful, she's beautiful.

Hey there lady in your skirt and your tie
deep down inside i think you know the reasons why
but you look upset, are you afraid to let me fly?
or are you just offended by the size of my thighs?
I realize i don't look like all the friends you know
from every single night on your favorite TV show.
You've read the labels, we've all seen the signs,
that say their bodies are more beautiful than mine.

You know they're beautiful, they're beautiful, they're beautiful...

We all love the model, she's sitting there so pretty
and the famous, famous man who designed her bikini.
She knows what to show, and they tell her what to cover
so all of her secrets won't be discovered.
But if you look real closely at her face
you'll see a gaping hole, where she removed from it
her only hairy mole
she felt she had no choice, and that if she let it show
everyone around her would pick up some stones to throw, cuz
they know

They know what's beautiful...

I found the messiah, I told him my name, he smiled at me
and he said "I'm really glad you came, because things were getting boring,
I was starting to complain and I think time, time that we all felt a little rain
So we went on a journey, I showed him my disguise
and I wondered what it looked like through his eyes.
He said "Your world is just a reflection of yourself
you only see what you already know,
and you know who you are inside." Then I realized
I had nothing left to hide so I knelt down
to the ground where I laughed and I cried and I laughed

Because we were beautiful...

GO ON YOUR WAY - by Kamila Nasr


Vocals: Kamila and Sara Nasr
Guitar: Kamila Nasr
Piano: Kamila Nasr

i could just forget everything i spent the whole night crying about,
it's so easy to fall into your arms
into your love, into your life
into a reality that justifies a man who beats his wife,
i now know better than this

so go on your way my fellow,
pack up your bags and go,
i'll give you a shove with my broken love
and i'll show my strength and where you went wrong

you spent so many years creating all these stories
about my accidents inflicted on myself
why i was bruised why i was broken
even i began believing you for your words were the only that were
spoken
i have my own voice now

so go on your way my fellow
pack up your bags and go
i'll give you a shove with my broken love
and i'll show my strength and where you went wrong

it's funny how easily i recognize all these patterns,
in relationships in which i'm not involved
constant denial their cries for help
but how can i help other women
if i can't protect myself
we don't stand alone anymore

so go on your way...

CANDLE LIGHT by Sara Nasr

Vocals: Sara and Kamila Nasr
Guitar: Sara Nasr
Flute: Kamila Nasr

Won't you give me back the time, won't you give me back the time,
won't you give me back the time she took the night and made it mine.

She led me down the path in the middle of the night,
she led me down the path by candlelight, by candlelight.
We knelt down by the water in a dark world void of colour
as we slipped into the water we held tightly to each other

And the waves were our blankets and they formed a flowing veil
we laughed and played like the mermaids till our bodies would fail

She held me in the darkness, said her life was soon to change
I thought of him asleep, i asked her if she thought it strange
She said she loved him with her whole heart
he was dependable and kind,
but she knew she had to leave him before she lost her mind
and i showed her my heart of sadness
and she showed me there was good
and as she left to sleep beside him
i cried into the woods

And the waves know the feeling and the waves know my fears.
I surrender my body to the water, let the waves wash away my tears

BAGEL GIRL by Sara Nasr

Vocals: Sara and Kamila Nasr
Guitar: Sara and Kamila Nasr
Clarinet: Ariana Nasr


i am your bagel girl, i'm pleased to serve you bagels.
i'll get you a small coffee too
to go with your cream cheese and bagels

serving bagels is my life these days
and i don't know what i'd do without it
maybe i would get to use my brain and be creative,
but i doubt it

cause i'm just your bagel girl
and i'm pleased to get you bagels
i'll get you a small coffee too
to go with your cream cheese and bagels
continued …
isn't the weather strange,
first the sun shines and then it rains out side,
i've been serving bagels since six thirty this morning
and i'm feeling - i'm feeling very tired,
but there's so much more to do,
to keep serving you,
and i'm just grateful i was hired,

to be - to be your bagel girl
to be pleased to serve you bagels....

oh you ordered soup - oh i'm sorry i forgot,
i would do much better here if i were a robot,
and i'd probably get a promotion
for being more efficient without all this emotion,

but i'm just i'm just your bagel girl...
and i'm pleased to serve you bagels,
i'll get you a small coffee too,
to go with your cream cheese and bagels

well the problem is, you see the problem is that i care too much,
i care too much about how you feel
and it hurts me when you ignore me and just walk away while i say
"i hope you enjoy your meal"

but i'm just, just your bagel girl
and my feelings do not matter,
i'm just here to get you bagels and cream cheese,
to make you happier and fatter

cuz i'm just your bagel girl...
and i'm pleased to serve you bagels
i'll get you that small coffee too
to go with your cream cheese and bagels

i've been serving bagels all day long,
and my life is as monotonous as this song
but i'm not complaining no don't get me wrong
but is this bagel shop really where i belong

to be your bagel girl,

WINTER-FREE GYPSY - by Kamila Nasr

Vocals: Kamila and Sara Nasr
Guitar: Kamila Nasr
Piano: Kamila Nasr
Flute: Kamila Nasr
Violin: Ariana Nasr

i'm off through the desert, i'm off to the mountains,
i'm riding by the moonlight i'm off 'til they find me
'til they find me

but you are the love of my life
you're my travelling winter-free gypsy still travelling on
but you are the love of my life
and no matter the distance between us i can't stay away long

i'm writing this letter to ask that you meet me
we didn't meet in this lifetime i've loved you for eternity
but to meet you on this evening means to leave my home and
family

but you are the love of my life
you're my travelling winter-free gypsy still travelling on
but you are the love of my life
i'll meet you in secret by morning they'll find that i've gone

i've heard news of the traitor in a letter to my daughter,
he'll meet her by moonlight and steal her away,
we can't let this happen we must go and surprise them

i'm off through the desert i'm off to the mountains
i'm riding to my loved one i'm hiding

and i hope to find you there
i'm praying to the gods
i'm praying to the goddesses
i won't be lost alone there

but do you wait alone i now see you in the distance
i try to give you warnings but they're fighting my resistance
their eyes are full of hatred they whisper to me traitor
their weapons full of anger as they plunge into a stranger

the sun will rise tomorrow but i will not rise with her
my soul will fly free
my soul will fly free

we're off through the desert
we're off through the mountains
we're riding by the moonlight.
