LYRICS: [spoken] And the flowers desert the branches for the Fall of Winter And my soul is left to pine for the beauty of Spring Hope for the warmth of the touch of Summer To bring him a full circle back to me. [sung] Nothing's quite right, nothing's enough for you babe Something's in spite, when you're not in sight, are still the same The seasons change. Nothing's seemed fine it wasn't divine for you babe I was in flight for some things in sight weren't still the same The seasons change. So long ago, the trees will grow, My heart won't show That I've been there too, But I still wait.

Verses : In a flight of fantasy. On the tail of a moonbeam I step into your world A silver spoon in my mouth A morsel of heaven (I taste the place) You come into my world. Bridge : Was lulled into a longing for, in my imagination I'll take the high road, you take the low road Chorus : In the eye of the beholder (gotta have you now) Scenes of la dolce vita. They flit through my hands of wonder They steal the thunder (steal my thunder no matter how, I wonder) I caught the wave of fate to see If my search is truly complete (I wonder).

about

Shueh-li's 3rd album released under the Xenovibes concept.

"I like to be trying something new, always finding a fresh perspective to music. How can one built a new piece from the same 12 notes?! So I concentrated on building new sound, putting my voice and theremin through ‘awkward’ moments and fine-tuning my style of synth performance. I allow my music/sound to remove all stereotyping of my gender/genre/ethnicity/training. I am appreciative of this avenue to be whatever I want to be without being condemned.

The 1st album was a sampler of what I do as a composer, arranger, multi-instrumentalist and producer/engineer. The 2nd allowed me to inch closer to showing off what XV is all about; the melding of my background and persuasions, and my philosophical approach to my work. In Crossing Paths (XV III - Xing Paths) I get to relax and have fun!

I invited John to contribute 3 ideas that I could transform for this album; these became tracks 8, 10 and 12." ~ Shueh-li

REVIEWS:
"It's Ong's best stuff yet. Lush blend of quirky electronica driven by strong melodies and lots of imaginations. If there's one thing that Xing Paths demonstrate as a whole, it's that Ong isn't a one-trick pony, and her vocals are appealingly polished."
Rated 'A.' - Chris Lim, The Business Times Singapore May 2009

"The world needs more Good Vibrations and these are some of the best. Creative, artistic use of technology is a beautiful thing, especially when it is this well done." - Chris Stack, MoogMusic

"The overwhelming feeling I got at the end of listening to Xing Paths was one of freshness. New, original and engaging sounds are abundant throughout this wonderfully crafted album."
Rated 9.6 out of 10. - Mark Eliot, Usaprogmusic
