Un Baiser D'enfant Lyrics (French/English)
What it's about: Un Baiser D'enfant is a French language version of The Infant Kiss. Based on the movie The Innocents, it's the story of a governess who is frightened by the adult feelings she has for her young male charge (who is possessed by the spirit of a grown man).

Suspended In Gaffa Lyrics
What it's about: Seeing something you really want (God in this case), then not being able to see or experience it ever again unless you work very hard. (It's a thematic first cousin to Sat In Your Lap, with a more religious bent.)
Running time: 3:56
This single, exclusive to Canada, has become pretty difficult to find.  (I didn't even know it existed until recently!) Scan courtesy of Tristan Alzial.
