In Norway, Anneli Drecker is known as the Queen of Arctic Electronica. Her ethereal voice became known through the music of her band, Bel Canto. At age 17, Anneli left her Arctic home town of Tromsø with band members Geir Jenssen (aka Biosphere) and Nils Johansen, for the pulsating indie scene in Bruxelles. Signed to the legendary Belgian label Crammed discs along with Zap Mama and Tuxedomoon, Bel Canto captured the Zeitgeist of European electronic music in the late eighties. Their two first albums, White Out Conditions and Birds Of Passage were released internationally through Nettwerk and IRS/MCA, and later, in the 90´s, they were signed to Sony France and Lava/Atlantic Records. Bel Canto toured France, the Benelux and Germany many times from 88-94 and also became the winner of Rock En France in 1991. They have won the Norwegian Grammy award “Spellemannsprisen” three times, and are regarded as the great pioneers in the Norwegian electronic pop music scene. With her characteristic experimental singing style, often compared to such wonderful singers as Lisa Gerrard and Liz Fraser, Anneli has had the possibility to collaborate with many great artists. She participated in projects with Hector Zazou, Jah Wobble, Gavin Friday, DJ Krush, Tim Simenon, Simon Raymonde of Cocteau Twins, and Guy Sigsworth. Anneli has also cooperated with ECM artist Ketil Bjørnstad and recorded three albums based on poems by John Donne and Hart Crane. Few can claim that they have been singing duets with Morten Harket, but Anneli joined a-ha on two world tours as their guest singer.

In 1999, Röyksopp - consisting of Torbjørn Brundtland and Svein Berge, also from Tromsø - released their debut album Melody AM. As Torbjørn had been a co-producer and live member of Bel Canto for a couple of years and also a co-producer of Anneli´s first solo album Tundra, it was natural for them to have Anneli as their singer when they went out on what would be the start of one of Norway´s biggest pop adventures. The song Sparks, which Anneli wrote with Svein and Torbjørn was the third single from Melody AM and featured on several movies and tv-series. She continued working with Röyksopp for more than ten years, touring the world and co-writing several songs with Svein and Torbjørn including True To Life, Vision One and You Don't Have A Clue. In 2012, Anneli left Röyksopp to return to her own music, and her new solo record, Rocks and Straws, is a homecoming song, an ode to her native town and region. Tromsø sits deep in the Arctic but still has a very vivid cultural life and is home to many of the great artists from Norway. The long, arctic winters have no sun, but there is still light – the glassy blue of the dusk-like midday glow in the south, and the flickering green and red aurora that can be seen across the horizon on many days.

Rocks and Straws is based on lyrics by the North Norwegian cult poet Arvid Hanssen, translated into English by artist and writer Roy-Frode Løvland. Hanssens poems are strongly influenced by the mysterious and powerful nature of this arctic region, like the writings of Knut Hamsun, born only a few miles from Hanssens birthplace. Man and nature, and man in nature – Hanssen captures the interaction of Northern Norwegians with their merciless but beautiful surroundings, and the sometimes-deadpan observations that follow. It is a great personal pleasure for Anneli to make Hanssens work known to a wider audience, especially outside of Norway, as he has had a great influence on her. In 1982, as a child, she starred in a major motion picture based on Hanssens book Søsken på Guds jord (Siblings on God's Earth). She met Hanssen during the shoot, and he and his works made a great impression on her. Rocks and Straws is influenced by the arctic soundscapes that Anneli has always carried with her, but is above all an acoustic record. In a world of ever-simpler electronic recordings she has moved in the other direction, and made a record based on recording techniques from the seventies. The music is played live, acoustically, with the best musicians Norway (and the world?) can offer: Eivind Aarset, guitar God and well known for his collaborations with Nils Petter Molvær, and Rune Arnesen, infamous drummer who has played with everyone, are the musical backbone of the album. Ole Vegard Skauge, acclaimed bass player of Röyksopp, and Tromsø's orchestra, The Arctic Philharmonic, also contribute to the album. Apart from singing Anneli plays the piano and organ, and has produced the recording with the musicians. As a Ph. D. candidate at the Arctic University of Tromsø, she is doing a research project on the voice techniques of indigenous people, and this is apparent especially in the song Ocean´s Organ, with a Maori group singing kapa haka songs that Anneli recorded while in Auckland, New Zealand. The title refers to the voices of sailors that have drowned in the ocean, a subject that the Maori singers could easily relate to. A global reference. Something that we all are connected to: Water. And rocks. And straws.

Tundra

All I know

I wasn't ready for this
You left me here on my own
So, this is where I stand
I wasn't ready for this
The bright days all suddenly turned dark
Walking here all by myself
Wondering what went wrong
Wait what I said or didn't say?
How did I get in this mess
In being so alone
All I know is that you disappeared
I wasn't ready for this
You left me here on my own
I wasn't ready for this
To house a cold, eclipsing heart
Ooh, a cold heart
Walking here all by myself
Wondering what went wrong
That I couldn't know of
Didn't see
All those dreams now fullfied
Why did they stop to glow?
All I know is that you disappeared
Everywhere I turn and go
I feel the ghost of you
Memories haunt my ever troubled mind
How I wish for this to end
Find peace and start a new ..
All I know is that you disappeared

Sexy Love

I know your kind, I know your score
One foot in sea and one on shore
I see you now, I feel you now
And I just want you more and more
Must be love
Sexy love
Oh, diorific plastic shine
Oh, won't you kiss these lips of mine?
I see you now, I feel you now
Oh, honey, won't you be so kind
Must be love
Sexy love
All this lifetime
What's it for
If not for us to share anymore?

Fire alarm

I've been ignoring you
Oh, why
Looking the other way as you pass me by
I've been exploring truth
Sometime
Finding out what went wrong
Why you made me cry
But if this fire alarm should start
I'm gonna run to you
We'll find the exit, climb the stairs
Into the sky so blue
And if this building now should fall
I will be crushed with you
It's just a reflex after all
But I wanna be with you
I've been ignoring you
Oh, why
Looking the other way as you pass me by
I've been avoiding you
Oh why everything's amber-lit
Since we said goodbye
But if this fire alarm should start
I'm gonna run to you
We'll find the exit, climb the stairs
Into the sky so blue
And if this building now should fall
I will be crushed next to you
In case you should forget to ask
I'm still in love with you
Aaahhh!!!!

Who on earth

Far away the sky is turning grey
Although the sun is shining above right here
No, I won't let the fish eat you...
And of course I know they wouldn't do!
But you're too little to understand that
Say, who on earth can guide us
Help us stear this boat on shore?
The stream might drag us under
Soon we'll hit the waterfall
Say, who on earth can save us
From the thunder in our hearts?
I swear to you, no matter what
We'll never be apart! far away
There is a clear new day...
But it's gonna rain first in our heads
Let's take the car down the highway
And park it down by the bay
Dip our toes into the water
Say who on earth can guide us
Through these misty, curving roads
And lay their hands upon our shoulders
Point out where to go?
Say who on earth can save us
From the thunder in our hearts?
I swear to you, no matter what
They won't tear us apart!
Who eavesdropped behind my chandeliers...
The trolls have all popped out
Everything is here
Easy-peasy lemon time
Tout va bien, cherie
I'm a concubine
I'm a concubine

Woebegone

Oh, my heart
Why did we part?
Life has lost it's bloom
I am sunk in gloom
I've been such a fool
I have been oh, so cruel
Sleep has gone
Grief has made me wan
I am stooped from woe
And my head hang low
How can I go on?
I am woebegone
Oh, this hurt
Longing
Hoping you'll send word
All my thoughts are blurred
Broken is my heart
Oh, why did we part?
Hiding when I'm not dreaming
Hiding when I'm not dreaming

Tundra (Manaiga)

Two people of youth were flying
Two people with futures were competing
Over the great white tundra
They got carried away
Blinded by speedrush
Captured by the forces
Of the magic trollsled
Over the great tundra
To the tundra
On the tundra
They went

It's all here

If only I could open up my heart
You would be the first to enter
Together we could reach for another day
Seek possibilities
The next thing then we'll have to do
Is to get out
Out of reach and out of center
So no one in the world can disturb the feeling
Of being you and me
It's all here in my heart
It's all here in my dreams
All here in my heart
I could show you what you got
I could show you what you need
It's all here in my, all here in my heart
I've had to take some time all to myself
To restore and to re-enter
Been trying to break out
But I am still too scared
Of being hurt again
My friends keep telling me I must try to let go
But who are they to tell me to do such a thing
When you know that all I want
Is to have him here with me
It's all here in my heart
And it's everything I got
You know, it's all here in my heart
It's all here in my dreams
All here in my heart
You could show me what I got
You could show me what I need
It's all here in my heart
Oh, you know
It's all here in my heart
I could show you what you got
I could show you what you need
It's all here in my, all here in my heart
All here in my heart

Still waters

Still waters run deep now
I've been watching you so long
I know that something's twisted
I know that something's wrong
How long ago
Did you consult your heart
You consult your heart
Tend it, as I
Should do too
My true and tender comfort
That is what I offer you
Ooh, it's so easy not to say that
It's so easy not to do
How long ago
How long now
Will you remain apart
Split your head and heart
Keep them not apart
You must consult your heart
Tend it, as I should do too
Tend it as I wish I could
Tend it, as I should do too
Tend it, as I wish I could do too..
This isn't my fault
It is a why-mode

Rainstorm

Have I not been fooled again?
I know I must have
I thought such joy could never end
I thought I would
Keep you with me
Eternally
Now, I turn a painful red
When people pass me
Avert my eyes and drop my head
Afraid they might
See what I see
My destiny
I just want the rain to come
To console me, to pour over me
There's nothing like a rainstorm
To wash away the rain
My crying in vain
Autumn leaves and butterflies
When winter's due
They all turn weak, they all just die
In multitudes
Invisible
Nothing at all
My, oh, my the wind did turn
I lie awake in bed
I sweat, I toss, I burn
With agony
This emptiness
It's so meaningless
I just want the rain to come
To console me, to pour over me
They say there's nothing like a rainstorm
To wash away the rain
I just want the rain to come
To dissolve me, to pour over me
You know they say there's nothing like a rainstorm
To wash away the rain
My crying in vain
My crying in vain..
Have I not been fooled again?

Song of the sky loom

( Lyrics from a Native American poem from Tewa )

O, our mother the earth
O, our father the sky
Your children are we
And we bring you gifts you love
Then leave us a garment of brightness
May the warp be the white light of morning
May the weft be the red light of evening
May the fringes be the falling rain
May the border be the standing rainbow
Thus weave for us a garment of brightness
That we may walk fittingly where birds sing
That we may walk fittingly where grass is green
O, our mother the earth
O, our father the sky

Frolic

You Don't Have to Change

There you go
In and out again
Of my life
It happened once before
But you should know
I still feel the same
Just be yourself
In every way you are
You don't have to change
In every way you are
Time goes by
People come and go
But we remain
The way we used to be
Well, I saw you
Walk away from love
I need you so
In every way you are
You don't have to change
In every way you are

Safe now

Cold, as the wind slows you down
From the edge of town
As a weakened stranger lies before your eyes
As the wind slows you down
You're chilled to the bone
As the neon lights light up the night
And I, da-di-ya
I feel safe now
Tell you why, da-di-ya
I feel safe now
Stormy skies
Lonely nights
They can wait now
Only I, mm I
I feel safe now
Yes, I do
Cold, as the wind slows you down
In this restless town
As the wind sweeps the icy ground
Tonight you are hurrying home
You're chilled to the bone
As a weakened stranger lies behind
And I, da-di-ya
I feel safe now
Tell you why, da-di-ya
I feel safe now
Stormy skies
Long goodbyes
They can wait now
Only I, mm I
I feel safe now...
And I, da-di-ya
I feel safe now
Tell you why, da-di-ya
I feel safe now
Stormy skies
Lonely nights
They can wait now
Only I, mm I
I feel safe now
Yes, I do

My Emily

All I need is some time alone
Away from here, away from home
Place where I can be far away
From that dry, from that dry
Even if I seem stronger
I'm thinking of her
The way she smiled
Our summer nights
Even if it is long ago
I don't know, I don't know
All I need is some time away
Time to find some peace of mind
Even if I seem stronger
I'm thinking of her
And now she's torn away
We couldn't let her stay
The sea and the sights and the stars in the sky
I miss my Emily
She was the love in me
Her eyes, the sea
My Emily
Say you'll stay by my side tonight
And hold me tight, hold me tight
Oh, I know that you understand
Please hold my hand, hold my hand
Even if I seem stronger
I'm thinking of her
The way she smiled and now, she's torn away
We couldn't let her stay
The sea and the sights and the stars in the sky
I miss my Emily
She was the love in me
Her eyes, the sea, the stars, the sky
And now she's torn away
We couldn't let her stay
The sea and the sights and the stars in the sky
I miss my Emily
She was the love in me
Her eyes, the sea
My Emily
Out in the sky

Stop this

It isn't black, it isn't white
So honey, let's not start a fight
It wasn't all a big mistake
It's just your loving came too late
'Cause i've had these demons inside my heart
They've been pushing me from the start
And now they're right here in your face
They've come to put you in your place
It's that radio
Too many broken-hearted songs
They make me zip, I know
I gotta stop this, I gotta stop this
It's the TV-shows
Too many sad, regretful mums
They make me flip, I know
I gotta stop this, I gotta stop this
Yeah
They make me flip, I know
Yeah
They make me flip, I know
It isn't black, it isn't white
So honey, let's not start a fight
I wasn't all a big mistake
It's just your loving came too late
'Cause i've had these demons inside my heart
They've been pushing me from the start
And now they're back, what can I do?
They tell me i'll stop loving you
It's that radio
Two many broken-hearted songs
They make me zip, I know
I gotta stop this, I gotta stop this
It's the TV-shows
Two many sad, regretful mums
They make me flip, I know
I gotta stop this, I gotta stop this
The hip hop videos
The wiggly bikini-clad bums
They make me trip, I know
I know, I know, I know that
I know we could have made it
I know, I know, I know that
Somehow we could have made it

Strange Little Bird

Strange little bird
Caught on a wire again
With her hair hanging down to her hips
Now she's glazen-eyed only because she had
To have it and feel it again
Didn't she turn
Didn't she go
Didn't she rise above it all
Didn't she learn
Didn't she see
This was not meant to be
No, no, no
I was the one who squeezed her demons with my hand
Yeah, I was the one
I thought she'd always understand
Strange, strange little bird
Didn't she turn
Didn't she go
Didn't she rise above it all
Didn't she learn
Didn't she see
This was not her destiny
No, no, no
I was the one who squeezed her demons with my hand
Yeah, I was the one
I know I thought she'd understand
Didn't she turn
Didn't she go
Didn't she rise above it all
No, no, no
Strange, strange little bird

Painted black

The road is painted black
Maybe I don't want you back after all though I said I did
It can't be just like that
Maybe I don't want you back after all that is said and done
Do you lie
You shine
Ain't you the baby I know
It's time to figure out
Do you lie
I know, I didn't know what to do
The road is painted black, painted black, painted black
The road is painted black
Maybe I don't want you back after all I have said and done
I know it for a fact
It is a vicious crack
And it melts my skin down
I know I know we're only waiting it out
That's how I see it now
Do you lie
I know, I didn't know what to do
I live on a lie
Yes, I know what I'm all about
Today is a shining
I live on a lie
Yes, I know it's the way I am until
The road is painted black...
I know I know we're only waiting it out
That's how I see it now
Do you lie
I know, I didn't know what to do
The road is painted black, painted black, painted black

Desire

Loving you means everything to me
And I'm doing it baby from my ship
Let my crew help you on board
I'm their captain and I'm sure you're gonna like it
What i'll do to you
I wanted you right from the start, boy
Come on baby, feel my fire
Desire
I'm gonna prove it
Learning to be better 'till the morning
If you feel just like
If you yearn for something higher
Honey, that's all right
You're the one that I desire
So you better make a move
And shove my back against the wall
'Cause honey, you were special born
Special born for me
Let us hop upon the bump, bump bunk
Hop upon the bump, bump bunk
Ah, Desire
If you're all alone
If you yearn for something better
Honey, I'm the one
You're the one that I desire
Come on baby, feel my fire
Desire
I'm gonna prove it
Learning to be better 'till the morning
If you feel just like
If you yearn for something higher
Honey, that's all right
You're the one that I desire

Angel Bossanova

Where has my angel gone
Far across the seas
To my europa's land
I can't believe he's gone
I hope that she will see me through
I love you so
You're all that I need
Oh, then you go
Please, just stay with me
I love you so
No, don't walk away
Sleep-walker stole my night
Cute was the danger
In a stranger's land
I can't believe she's gone
I do so hope that she will see me through
I love you so
You're all that I need
Oh, then you go
Please, just stay with me
I love you so
No, don't walk away
I love you so
You're all that I need
Oh, then you go
Please, just stay with me
I love you so
No, don't walk away

Rocks & Straws

(Poems by north Norwegian author Arvid Hanssen / Translated into English by Roy-Frode Løvland)

Alone

Alone no man should wander
When moon shines down
And makes altar silver
On mountains crown
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
One should not endure the burden
To seize and own
An ocean of stars all alone

That oar wasn't meant for rowing
That only gives
A landing ashore
Where no one lives

One should not endure the burden
To seize and own
An ocean of stars all alone

One should not endure the burden
To seize and own
An ocean of stars all alone, all alone
An ocean of stars all alone

Circulating Light

Darkness comes early, comes early to the hills
Soon she is here
Covering mountains and loosening winds
Filling her sphere

In dark, shallow water a beacon shines
Circulating her light
Guiding the ships, safely over the waters
Leading them through the night
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Evening comes early, comes early to our town
Working men stay
Bending their necks over oars as they frown
Little girls pray

In dark, shallow water a beacon shines
Circulating her light
Guiding the ships, safely over the waters
Leading them through the night

Night comes early, comes early to our home
Rests in a nook
Sits at the bedside, no want to roam
Closing her book

In dark, shallow water a beacon shines
Circulating her light
Guiding the ships, safely over the waters
Leading them through the night

Come Summer's Wind

From pale days a prayer is lifted
Where cold winds of winter blow
Let live all the seeds about to grow

Come summer's wind
Come summer's wind
Come summer's wind

A boat is pulled down to the water
On even the coldest night
A hope that grows higher than morning light
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Come summer's wind
Come summer's wind
Come summer's wind

The night closed our doors for shelter
But winter will still remain
Let songs yet be sung where the hoarfrost reigns

Come summer's wind
Come summer's wind
Come summer's wind...

Green Leaves In The Snow

I have a minor field
A field where I can sow
But long is our winter
And springtime comes so slow

It's now the midst of summer
And I sow while birches grow
With green leaves in the snow

The sea is dark grey
And northern winds blow
And my next door neighbour, Thomas
Comes wandering, you know
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
To tell me there's no use
To sow while birches grow
With green leaves in the snow

I am just like my neighbour
As little as I sow
As little as I'm hoping
For better times to show

Give I was like the birches
Who even dare to grow
With green leaves in the snow
The snow

With green leaves in the snow

Fishermen's Blues

It's early morning
Northern winds are bleak
Latest news from fishing
Fishing's weak

But no matter any forecast
There's no time for complaints
Seawater's in my veins

Early morning
Dark around my shoes
Walking down the seaside
Fisherman's blues

Getting in the boat
Belated by the ice
Got to use the shovel
Don't think twice
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Yeah, I know I'm getting older
Need a foothold when I row
Not to end where seaweeds grow

Early morning
Dark around my shoes
Get the engine started
Fisherman's blues

Backwards out the cove
I hear the engine rap
I set the coarse as ever
Never need a map

I've been fishing these waters
Since I was thirteen or so
Always know just where to go

Early morning
Dark around my shoes
Light a cigarette
Fisherman's blues

Ocean's Organ

An organ is playing in the ocean
Mighty and strong
About the days you once had
And those that are gone
In the ocean
In the ocean

An organ is playing in the ocean
Plays loud and wide
About hopes being lit
And hopes that have died

An organ is playing in the ocean
Playing a verse that you know
An organ is playing in the ocean
About the days you once had
In the ocean
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
An organ is playing in the ocean
With thunderous tone
Playing a verse that you know is your own
In the ocean

Te waka
Hei runga hei raro, hi ha, hi ha
Toia mai, te waka
Ki te urunga, te waka
Ki te moenga, te waka
Ki ti takotoranga i takoto ai te waka
Hi

Rain

Why should you complain in the rain
You should think like this
Every seed has its bliss
In the rain
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Why should you complain in the rain
It's in the rain you can see
That a rainbow can be
In the rain

Rain, rain
Summer's on its way

Why should you complain in the rain
Raindrops moulded your soul
Shine like silver and gold
In the rain

Rain, rain
Summer's on its way

Rocks and Straws

A rock is a rock
Is hard and cold
Is rock to know
And rock to hold
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Straws are straws
You throw about
Are straws, you say
Not being worth a doubt

Rocks are rocks
Straws are straws
But rocks and straws
Are for a cause

Rocks are rocks
Straws are straws
But rocks and straws
Are for a cause

Seagull's Melody

Creation has made it like this since beginning
Where harsh winds precluded the birds from singing
The only song we could hear by the sea
Was a seagull's melody
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The nightingale came as a guest in July
Never to lift her voice to the sky
Leaving the ice covered branch on the tree
And a seagull's melody

Creation has made it like this from the start
That those who could sing from a tender heart
Left us behind with a winters decree
And a seagull's melody

Waiting For A Boat

Evening comes alone
Rowing towards land
Finds its way to port
Without boat or man
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Evening is an offering, granted free or owed
No one knows while waiting
Waiting for a boat

Evening comes alone
By my door, prevails
Silently filling my home
Wearing its bleak veil

Evening is an offering, granted free or owed
No one knows while waiting
Waiting for a boat
Waiting for a boat
Waiting for a boat

Evening is an offering, granted free or owed
No one knows while waiting
Waiting for a boat
For a boat
Waiting for a boat
For a boat

Waiting for a boat
Waiting for a boat
Waiting for a boat

Little Tree

Little tree, little tree
Do you stand in the woods awaiting
Asking with your cold and naked twig
If there will be much more waiting

Little tree, little tree
Do you stand in the woods awaiting
Remembering sunshine and summer's heat
Do you stand in the woods awaiting
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Little tree, little tree
Do you stand in the woods awaiting
The frost covers branches and stones, can you see
How many are standing awaiting
Little tree
Little tree, little tree
Little tree, little tree

Revelation For Personal Use

Revelation for personal use

And I shall enter
Another room
And a new light
Shall come over me

And my joy shall grow
Into high trees
And my heart blossom
Like vineyards

And lovely songs shall fill
Every inch of my soul
And no bitter memory
Shall I own

And unrest and anxiety
Shall be no more
And no night, and no darkness
And nothing else
Of what burdens me here

'Cause I shall go
To the new room
With all I have of faith
In what is good
Together with you

Becoming more like god

(Jah Wobble's Invaders Of The Heart : Wobble/Adams/Reynolds)

 I've just remembered who I am
More than a long lost anagram
I've just remembered who I am
Slightly more than just a woman or a man
Becoming more like god
Becoming god
I've just seen who you really are
Impossibly funicular
I've just seen who you really are
An astonishingly accomplished avatar

When the storm comes

(Jah Wobble's Invaders Of The Heart: Wobble/Adams/Reynolds)

Wait until the storm comes
Out here in oblivion
Wait until the storm comes
Make it pure as platinum
When I look in your eyes
I see the whole world
I feel like I'm falling
In love with the world again
Let your love wash over me
Cleansing waters run
Thunder rolls at last I'm free
Let your love wash over me
Let your love rain down
No-one ever knew it
Because we didn't show it
No-one ever knew it
They didn't want to see it
Lying in a dark room
Such a turbulent womb
Lying in a dark room
Where wild flowers could never bloom
Love love love love love

I'll strangle you

(Hector Zazou - Sahara blue : Rimbaud/Zazou/Laswell/Drecker)

J'ai tendu des cordes de clocher à clocher
Des guirlandes de fenêtre à fenêtre
Des chaînes d'or d'étoile à étoile
Et je danse
Let me
Penetrate all of your memories
Let me, let me
Bet that
Woman who can bind you hand and foot
I'll strangle you
I'll strangle you...

Une matinée couverte en juillet
Un goût de cendres vole dans l'air
Une odeur de bois suant dans l'âtre
Les fleurs rouies
Le saccage des promenades
La bruine des chanaux par les champs
I have strung ropes from steeple to steeple
Garlands from window to window
And golden chains from star to star...
And I dance
J'ai tendu des cordes de clocher à clocher
Des guirlandes de fenêtre à fenêtre
Des chaînes d'or d'étoile à étoile
Et je danse
Let me
Penetrate all of your memories
Let me, let me
Bet that
Woman who can bind you hand and foot
I'll strangle you
I'll strangle you...

Avivant un agréable goût d'encre de chine
Une poudre noire pleut doucement sur ma veillée
Je baisse les feux du lustre
Je me jette sur le lit
Et tourné du côté de l'ombre
Je vois, mes filles!
Mes reines!
I have strung ropes from steeple to steeple
Garlands from window to window
And golden chains from star to star...
And I dance... 

Until I'm in you

(Angel Baby Soundtrack)

Bright and shiny lonely star
Take my prayer
Under your wing
Blow a kiss, a magic spell
Gently roll the clouds away
If god .. 
An angel sings
Your very soul is mine to keep
Gravity's imaginary
With your white big fluffy feathered wings
Hold me closer
And closer, closer still
Until I'm in you
Secret world
Heaven sent
Is calling you
And me
Where blue and green can never be seen
With all the colour in between
Hold me closer
And closer, closer still
until I'm in you
Until I'm lost in you

Angel, don't be sorry, don't worry
This would happen anyway, I guess
Summer came, and we shared the days
Now winter's here and the wind has changed
Soon I'll be here on my own
Feeling like a


Monsoon baby

( With Inoran )

Monsoon baby
A complexed maybe
Rain - rinsed lady

Navigating towards you by airplane
Eating a local London-time supper
Winter went and the days were strange
But summer came and the wind did change
Finally you'll get to meet
Out little wonderful

Monsoon baby
Monsoon baby
A ten moon lady
Monsoon lady

Monsoon baby
Monsoon baby
A seawind lady
Monsoon baby

Monsoon baby
Monsoon baby
A ten moon lady
Monsoon lady

Monsoon baby
Monsoon baby
A seawind lady
Monsoon baby

Monsoon baby
Monsoon baby
No more maybe
Monsoon baby
