great great music. i'm convinced that cynthia's the philippine's queen of acoustic guitar. rate this album a nine.
------------------

i listened 2 the cd first @ music1 b4 i bought the album.i was glad 2 find lyrics printed on the in-lay card. b4 i knew it i was tapping my fingers and moving my body to the melodies.  but because my budget was low(i only receive allowance) i opted for the cassette tape. i excitedly went home. in my room i ripped the plastic. guess what?! no lyrics on the in-lay card. aughhhh!!!why? why? why?..cynthia?

Maybe you can write n/a records and they can send you the cd booklet or something. see http://www.narecords.com

I heard cynthia once on the radio saying that she intended not to put the lyrics on the cassette sleeve since it's available online check out http://www.cynthiaalexander.com
Her album's great man, good food for the soul :)

Yeah, but they're on the CD sleeve anyway! Maybe it's a sneaky incentive to buy the CD :)

no lyrics on cynthia's website. there used to be a page meant 4 the lyrics. i tried to click it be4 but was empty. i thought it was just under construction. now,  they've reformatted the website and the lyrics page is gone. well, here's the chorus of "DAisy CHain" that still lingers in my mind.
 
        "Do you need somebody
         Do you need someone
         Who will make the sunset
         Last forever
         Who will daisy chain you
         To the summer"


if anybody finds a source 4 the album lyrics please email me: sir_tsarlz79@eudoramail.com. THanKS!

Tower records bro ;)  One of the best or perhaps the best na narinig kong female artist as a whole !! .  ..Song writer...guitarist... ..bassist. . .her voice. . syet san ka pa !

Ok ang Comet's Tail. .

What have you lost that you are weeping ?
What have you found that you have lost ?
What have you built that has been broken ?
You have not anything.
We have come emptyhanded
We will go emptyhanded.

kung kukuha kayo timing nyo na si Cynthia din ang on-stage that night so pwedeng-pwede ipa-autograph.  :-)

i remember mike pedero sampled this one when we were doing a workshop..
sabi ko ganda ng mix, comment nya lubog daw boses ni cynthia.. hehehe .. which was true din , he did a simple eq'ing and the vocals were suddenly more upfront although syempre mixed down na yun eh.. so pati iba damay.. hehehe

I was cut by the cruel axe
In life I was silent In death I sweetly sing

i'm guessing this was the artist's preference ;)
