It has never been this quiet
And we have never seen a storm
Though you really made things quiet
I think I will stay calm

'Cause I can't move the slightest finger
Let alone raise my hand
I'm sure we lived like lovers
But you dreamt of becoming a happier man

And I can't tell what I had chosen
If no choices of this kind can be made
I was happy for a long time
But that's not what I feel today

It has never been this dreamlike
And we have never seen a ghost
Though you are bringing me a nightmare
It's not what frightens me the most

You make me go through my visions
And what it was that we achieved
You make me ransack love for it's goodness
And if love ever leads to harmony
If love ever leads to harmony

I like "Once" off the "Sing and dance" album much better. The duet with Freddie Wadling makes up for her hushed voice.

Cute voice, nice butterfly, dull song {#Sleep}

In my opinion not a lot of diversity in the content coming off of her work.  Many songs have the same cadence and hushed vocals.

More poetic and less teeth-gnashing yodel. 
 


Never heard the rest of her stuff but I like this tune.

Thanks, but no thanks.

I really like!  This has a great, easy sound that complements this snowy Colorado morning perfectly.  Ahhh...

Not bad.
We already had one Jewel.

meh
Never heard of her, and this is pretty good.
First!

AMG sez:  "With no musical background and without ever having performed in public, Zelmani rose to the top of the charts with her debut album. In spite of being known as very shy, she soon reached an audience all over Europe and Asia with her tender singer/songwriter country."
