Track Name: Nepali Song
Nepali Lyrics:

Santa Di Mach
Lax Cha
Atma Beswas

English Translation:

Peace of Mind
Self Confidence
Track Name: Nishta
Headin' up the road to Chame
Got these mountains at our side
We're on a Himalayan journey
To bring some sense into this life

We met a didi along the way
Leading monks all through the night
She said
We're on a Himalayan journey
To bring some sense into this life

Nishta sing your songs for me
Nishta sing your songs for peace
Give'em to the sky
To bring the rain
And sunshine
Track Name: The Memory
Here we are
At this moment in time
Here we are
Sharing our lives
These little moments
We seldom forget
But who knows
If we'll ever meet again

We stumbled upon each other in the rain
Happily singing songs
Strangers no longer
A friendship grows stronger
But bound to be movin' on

So please don't
Don't pretend that we'll write back
Or send messages
Cause we know
In our hearts
It's how life goes
And it happens

Just take the time to remember

A glance, a smile, a cup of tea, a little while
It's gone
Insights, in dreams, in everyday, the memory lives on
Track Name: Take
We take
A little photo
We take
A glimpse, then go
7000 miles away
But do they receive?
What do we leave?
Do we give back
For all that they gave?
We take what we want
But what do we trade?
Track Name: White Flag
Can you hear it?
Among those trees
Above the river
About 14, 000 feet

Close your eyes
Just try
To imagine what you'd find
If you listened
If you listened....

If you really saw
What's been sitting there all along
It's not yours
It's not mine
But it'll sit there
For quite some time
A tiny fragment
In our minds
That we just don't seem to see
Because we don't know
What it means
To take responsibility..

For our backyard

Can you see it?
Check out that white flag
Can you hear it?
It's just the wind
In that plastic bag...
