The Best of the Indonesian Sessions

by Colin Bass

Denpasar Moon, shining on an empty street I return to the place we used to meet Denpasar Moon, shine your light and let me see That my love is still waiting there for me I saw you standing there Through the rain I saw you turn and smile Were you waving to me? Through the rain I ran across the street But you were gone, there was no one You had vanished with my dreams Denpasar Moon... But you were gone, there was no one You were gone, flying homewards You were gone, there was no one You had vanished with my dreams Denpasar Moon...
Sumbawa 06:26
Sumbawa, ke Sumbawa, naik mobil ke Sumbawa Perempuan, laki-laki, saya capé, saya mudah Perempuan, laki-laki, lima hari tanpak tidur Boleh boleh, bersama sampai pagi Boleh boleh, coba coba coba sekali lagi Sumbawa ke Sumbawa, nail mobil ke Sumbawa - lyrics: Colin Bass

Sailing Home 05:33
Last night I dreamed of falling leaves That lay around me like a golden sea Last night I dreamed of waterfalls And from behind the rushing stream I heard you call I walk the crowded streets without believing The superstitious worlds of simple men But as they call to God from silver towers I feel the fear inside of the final hour And I'm sailing home to you And now I see the distant shore come into view Sailing home to you I want to find the light that shines inside of you

Artur Asaki 06:05
Artur Asaki was a very funny man All the people in England and what was Great Britain too They knew his song about the bumble-bee Hello Playmates was his catch-phrase Everytime he was on the BBC Artur Asaki was a very funny man La Milagrosso was a very good woman They say that she could heal the sick Help you put your horse before your cart She could help you find your true love Chase away dark shadows from your heart La Milagrosso was a very good woman
Twilight is fading over the bay Night throws its shadows over the day Strange birds are flying out of the trees Over the rooftops, down to the sea Night brings the spirits here from afar Gods go out walking under the stars And the wild voices call As the warm rain falls And we are so small in this world
Habibeh 05:22
