An Pierlé is a theatrical musician who makes - seated on an ergonomic & transparent ball in a duel with her piano - very tense music, alternately controlled and energetic, sweet and violent. Born in 1974 as An Miel Mia Pierlé, she supposedly declared at a very young age that she wanted to "act and sing and make music and dance and if possible all together". She didn't like her classical piano-education though, and enrolled at the age of 17 at the art-school Studio Herman Teirlinck in Antwerp. In her third year there she made a solo-programme with songs of her own, alone at the piano.After a few cautious tryouts in small rock-clubs - to check if the combination Pierlé/Piano also had an impact outside of the shielded environment of art school - she took a bold step to send in a cassette to Humo's Rock Rally, edition 1996. Her participation was a success, because she went all the way to the final and was spoken about more than any other band (despite the presence of Arid and Novastar). Her impressive version of Tubeway Army & Gary Numan's "Are friends electric" became a radio-hit. The live-tape of this also was included in a British Gary Numan tribute "Random" (with contribution of Dave Clarke, The Orb, Moloko and Damon Albarn van Blur). Gary himself has stated he was mighty impressed with the version she did of the song. The result of all this was a modest "An Pierlé"-hype, but this didn't rush her into exploiting the situation: "After the rock Rally I had to slow down a little : it all came kinda sudden, everybody heard I supposedly was fantastic so they were expecting a lot from me... But I was lucky. My name was out and that gave me the chance to develop ... Nobody cares about local talent, you have to aim internationally from the start. And it has to be very good to do that. Music is a game, but a serious one at that: I want to do this for the rest of my life, so I'd rather make one really good thing than ten worthless things", she told Knack.

The waiting for a first album took some time, because she went on a tour with the theater play "Bernadetje" of Victoria for almost two years, and played a part in the television series "Moeder waarom leven wij". During this period she did play some solo-concerts in Belgium and Holland (eg. Gentse and Lokerse Feesten, Boterhammen In Het Park, Marktrock '98, Crossing Borders, Lowlands and Pukkelpop '98).A cooperation with Kloot Per W (In the Belly) didn't produce anything, a cooperation with Die Anarchistische Abendunterhaltung (DAAU) made it's way onto the CD "We need New Animals" as the track "Broken". So it wasn't until early '98 that she signed a record deal with Warner Music Benelux. After a few scrimmages to find a producer to her liking - in the end they opted to work with Karel De Bakker (soundman of Zita Swoon, A Group...) - they started the recording of what was to become "Mud Stories" in an attic above a theater hall in Ghent. On top of the takes with an electrical Yamaha CP-80 piano, they recorded extra takes on a grand piano with Jo Bogaert (Technotronic-fame). And as the official bio says: "The debut "Mud Stories" offers an multifaceted amalgam of surprisingly diverse and mostly brand new material. All in pure singer-songwriter tradition, with influences from Bach to John Cale to Dolly Parton and even Kim Wilde. An Pierlé uses delicate ingredients: an impressive voice, sometimes an electrical, sometimes an acoustic piano, here and there combined with highly effective"arrangements". To conclude from this that it is a "sweet" album would be wrong though: this "wild freshness" often hides a "distorted" side.. Pierlé clearly has has done "her own thing", and is proud of it too!"

Mud stories

Exit

Watching the entire night
Pictures of you I once took in my mind
Was it alright
Broke the rules by telling you
I liked you too much

You didn't wanna see me
Watching you at your best
As you thought you were perfectly
Answering my questioning
The perfect man

Tonight
I'm gonna make millions out of light
I'm gonna pretend I am alright

Eating the entire night
Raw fish
Trained 4 years
To kiss my lips as the main dish
Broke the rules by asking you
What I'd to do next

And I never thought you'd had
Such a small, small face
Though you always taught integrity
I find but disgrace
As you thought you were perfectly
Answering my questioning
The perfect man

Tonight
I'm gonna be questioning your rights
I'm gonna be strong enough to fight
(The wrong reasons why you wanna be in love with me)

Tonight
I'm gonna make millions out of light
I'm gonna pretend I am alright

Telephone

Hey little girl
I'm the voice in your head
I'm the portrait that hangs on the wall
I'm the treasure inside

Down the alley she goes

Hush
An don't tell anyone for the road
Take a biscuit and listen politely
To what I'm about to tell

Down the alley she goes
(She sings)

Go precious queen
You mean everything to mum and dad
They'll be sad when you're gone
But your target is higher

Down the alley she goes

Look at the stairs
And whatever they mean
It's a frightening thing to look up to
But it is your task

In the alley

And then she walks
On the telephone wire
To have her little chat with God

So far, so good
I am your friend
And if you get scared, just sing
La la la la la la

One cannot make omelets without breaking eggs
And the aimless are useless
So go on and fight for your dreams

In the alley

Hey little girl,
Are the voices still there?
Do you hear them from nowhere?
The set up was mean
Filial piety in the alley
She falls
Her final way to heaven

Mud Stories

I won't give in
I put fresh heart
Into myself
But I flee my thoughts

I won't give in
I've sealed my mouth
Won't say a thing
At least not out loud

Funny I'd like to seduce you
Funny how I feel
Maybe I'm lost on the tough side
Maybe this time it's for real
But I would like to be
But funny things for you
I'll manage a seven day working week
For your sake
As mary goes round on the playground
She is ever asking ever too much

I'm getting nervous
I hang around
It's no big deal
I'll sort it out

I'd like to tell you all my
Mud stories
Mud stories
Mud on my raincoat still
Much stories
Mud stories
Much on my raincoat still
Mud stories
Much fuss about a cheap thrill

I won't give in
I have no chance
I'll have enough
With one romance

I'd like to tell you bout my
Mud stories
Mud stories
Mud on my raincoat still
Much stories
Mud stories
Much on my raincoat still
Mud stories
Much fuss about a cheap thrill

Goddess

I squeeze my eyes
Pale blue and highlight
I wonder

I squeeze my eyes
Restrain Mr. Sandman
For I must love you anyway

I squeeze my eyes
I speak in tongues
I could never be the woman you want me to be
But it's so difficult ‘cause in my dreams
You do hold me

My sleeping isle
My mouth is too dry
But the sea too salty

For I must love you anyway
But please Morpheus
Take me in your arms
For I need to rest
Just to make the next day
Because tomorrow everything will be alright
Anyway

Tower

High on the tower
I freak on heights
With a tear in every corner of my eyes
Desert storm is over now
Nothing to fear
With the sailor near...

High on the tower
I have seen second sights
To discover my saviour nearby
For the sun won't burn my head
As I walk around my tower
For the wind would blow the lashes of my eyes instead

Here we come
Here we try
Here we settle down for ages
For the man who comes
To save our all guts

But the leppars lay ahead
Winning team by lengthless shoulders
Search the morning ground
Reach for the life bread

As I search for corners
Tired of the wide
I've been hissing at the angels
Who grab viciously at my eyes
Suzy sits upon her window
With her flaming thoughts and greedy thighs
The sailor wore a mark in the right eye

Here we come
Here we try
Here we've settled down for ages
For the man to come to save our all guts

See the level rises ahead
Sailor sits upon its shoulder
Soon enough he'll reach out
For the life braid
(i've grown for ages)

Dear sailor climb the braid
My hair will not break
It will just ache a little while
But it will not break
Dear sailor saviour climb the stairs
My heart will not break
(it will just ache a little while)

Sad Lover

Sad Lover
Would you like me leaving you?
Is it true I tell myself fairytales?
I pluck up my courage to see
If I stand straight in my shoes
To dance
To dance

With all the hungry wolves
I know
I like to get attention (much)
It's the affection I gain
That makes my head turn
And the strange belief you will

Leave me alone
I've written you a love on my own
So remind me
How much it means to me
To stay a little while on my own

Sad Lover it occurs to me we began
Our story lightly shoed
I used about a hundred feet
To find a license for you
To dance
To dance

With all the hungry girls
You know
You like to get attention (much)
It's the obsessive way
You make my thoughts go wrong

If you go, I will stay
If you come, I will stay
If you go, I will stay
If you come, I will

Leave you alone
I've written you a novel alone
Would you finally mind telling me
It's just another love affair done

If you come I will leave you

Siamese Twins

Siamese twins are separated
They couldn't stand themselves no more
They hesitated for a long time
They've had their doubts but now they're sure
They are sure

Summer was the cause of so much trouble
In the fall they didn't really talk no more
In the wintertime they thought their frozen hearts
Would certainly melt in the springtime
But of course
There wasn't warmth enough for both
For both

Played the happy freaks
For a long time
Saw enough sanguinary public
For a long time
I've been throwing up stones throwing up
For a long time
Played in secondhand circus side shows
Far too long a time

And though she falls
And begs for more
I'm sure we will never be
The way we were
Before

Nebraska

There's a train running through Nebraska
There's a cold running through my veins
And as far as I can see
It's all white there could no one be

There's a boy running through Nebraska
And it's cold in the kitchen I make some tea
For the rainy day's sake

And as far as my thoughts go
I see you running down the streets in some
Doomed town far away

And I ran my lonely way
I would die to catch on the train today
But you ran down the other way
(for the guilt of the wrongly prayed prayers)

There's a fire running through Nebraska
And it's cold in the kitchen I make some tea
For them rainy days I'd have loved to spend with you
I was lucky enough to escape in the nick of
Time will mitigate all wounds but I
Miss you anyway

And I ran my lonely way
I would've died to catch you on the train
That day
But we're both hurt
In another way

Fish

Fish in the sea swims backwards to me
He knows all about my desires

Sea turns to grout some clouds cried too loud
I'm tangled on corraloid wires

Maybe i'm drowning pretend i don't notice
I just can't admit i like drifting down there

Hey Mr Wind why don't you blow things
Over over

But instead he blows the coal
While with the waves he goes
Ripple babble babble ripple babble...
Cut the crap come on and
Flow me home
Things are sure to straighten out
Once more

Fish in the sea looks sideways at me
He thinks that i smell a bit fishy

Maybe i'm drowning self-pity takes over
While Mr Wing whistles a song in my ear

As before
Won't do it no more
Do it no more
Said that before

God in Cage

I wanna have god in a cage
Surrounded by angels
Through his wrought-iron railings
He can catch me

Wanna have god in a cage
Through his wrought-iron gate
He spies on me
Beggin me to release him
Beggin me to set him free
I wanna recrucify jesus
While singin' bawdy songs
Just to see if he really can get
A hard on

Gonna remind him of
The resurrection while dancing naked
Just to make him come

And
My picassos on the wall
Are fighting dali in the hallways
They like to smash to smithereens
Everything
I wanna have god in a cage
For my private museum

Mad Dog Watch

Because I'm young and foolish at heart
I search the way to the stomach
To nutcrack the undigest thoughts
Mad dogs bite
Out of love
For the unborn adored baby

Because I'm young and foolish at heart
My head stands in my senses' light
I start eclipsing my lovers too soon
Mad dogs bay at the moon
Out of love
For the unborn adored baby

Bring me bring me hollow words to fill
The holes in my pockets
Run on dry

Because I'm young and foolish at heart
I won't leave to chance second chances
By trashing the muses before they arrive
Mad dogs sleep with open eyes
Out of love
For the unborn adored baby

Bring me bring me hollow words to fill
The holes in my pockets
Run on dry
Bring me hollow hollow
Hollow words to fill
The holes in the palm of my hands
Run on dry

Because I'm young and foolish at heart
I try to crash through the wall of sound
By breaking my voice on physical love
Mad dogs sing out above
To shut up
All the unborn adored babies
I gave birth to a dog
Baby

Pleasant times

Pleasant times
Pleasant dreams to keep
Nicely broken

Other ways
To recover from
Slightly broken

Visions of love
Precisely spoken
Words to fall asleep

Rest in purple shadows

I like the day that's been done
Precisely spoken
I'd like you to stay with me

Softly drinking
Through the night
Lonely in my life

Go to sleep
I'll be right there
Beside you thinking

Yours to keep
I will save us from
Slowly sinking

Visions of love
Precisely spoken
Words to fall asleep

Rest in purple shadows

I like the day that's been done
Precisely spoken
I want you to stay with me

 

Helium Sunset

Sorry

Say you will
Don't be shy
I'll ask nothing
But your time
In return
I'm concerned

I'm so sorry
I can't do this much better
In front of you
Though I try
I hurt you

By the strange things I never can tell
‘Cause i've got them all covered so well
You can't name them nor solve them
Without getting involved

I'm surprised
Never thought
I'd be shy
Always joke
Always smile
Showing off

I'm a jester
I'm not nice
I'm flirtatious
Made of ice
But I'm scared
Deep inside

Still the same things we never can tell
‘Cause we've all got them covered so well
You can't name them nor solve them
Without getting involved

Hahahahaa
Hahahahaa

No I'm serious
Though I try
It's my search for
The things I hide from myself
Stupid me

As sudden tears fall

Sometimes
I think you're a wealthy man
In your head
The way you deal with regret
But once in while
Now and then
Even you
Get upset

In trance
Listening to you
In suspense
Nothing else to do
But your ranch-style
Supersmile
To see through
For a while

As sudden tears fall
As sudden tears fall
As sudden tears fall
As sudden tears fall

I'd like to
Dry them all
Since you came
Lookalikes are never the same
The firstborn's to blame
And I connect
I expect
Recovery from
What I detect

Yesterday
It made a raid on me
Strange
I've still got this rage
Like some stomach ball
Striking me
Penalty
In my goal

As sudden tears fall
As sudden tears fall
As sudden tears fall
As sudden tears fall

As sudden tears fall
As sudden tears fall
As sudden tears fall
As sudden tears fall

I'd like to dry them all
I'd like to dry them all

Nobody's fault

I've done it again
Something
Forced me to
Another piece in my collection
Of plays with you

I've done it again
Even
Several times
I guess it really takes a lot of beating
Before you cry

Alright, i've been blind

But nothing ever happens
Some things won't ever change
And if I'm being inconsiderate
I'm ashamed

And it's always something different
The grass is greener on the other side
I guess i've always been a dreamer
With a dirty mind

But it's
Nobody's fault
And if
Someone arranged this for me
Getting his kicks out of it
It's not my fault

I've done it again
I was
Weak again
I guess I lost my chance of heaven
Before it came

Alright, i've been blind

If something ever happens
And i've no chance to say goodbye
This is my way to say I'm sorry
One last time
But it's nobody's fault

Sister

I haven't got the brains
To say wise things
To tell true things
When you laugh

I haven't got the strength
To tell you straight things
‘Cause they are different
For everyone

Message blows at the sun

Grace
I've got a pretty face
Which automatically implies I'm dumb
Wise Japanese Master says
No time for Roo Di Ments
He's in my head
And I just can't get him out

All is said
And done

Sister is calling
In my head where she sleeps
Longing for desire
She's afraid
It's never to keep
Sister is moving me

I haven't got the guts
To preach you blue things
To talk about true things
I don't know
‘Cause I'm a chicken in the worst
Sense of the word
About these harsh things
Wanna be a friend to everyone

Message blows at the sun

I haven't got the sense`
To say sound things
Nor profound things
I'm not strong
‘Cause I am far too afraid to
Be taken wrongly
Though I really say
Nothing at all

All is said
I'm done

Helium Sunset

Nothing counts
Anymore
Have no doubts
Shut the door
Climb this mountain
Take me dear
Please come over
Do come near

Helium sunset
Seriously wrong bet
Oh...

Nightly highway
Almost dark
Flashing streetlights
Angels bark
Drive too fast
Get me frightened
This won't last
Morning brightens

Helium sunset
Seriously wrong bet

You see,
Sometimes...

120 miles an hour
You'll get plenty of
Sweetly sour
Play some music
Singin' together
Kiss the crash-barriers
Together for
Ever

Medusa

Strange, in troubled water
I am drowning in a goofy way
Strange, how my perception
Is slightly coloured by a blue haze
Strange, how I even got here
I was dying to be still alive
Fished nibble at my body
As I'm a free meal floating by

If you dive on your own
You'll get lost in the sea
Lost your sense of direction?
Just follow me
I'll be near
If you dive, dive, dive

Strange, how under water
Sound is waves upon the air
strange, I hear myself breathing
I am rising as I lose air
Strange, it now feels stupid
Built on incense and mirrors
broken pieces on the bottom is the last thing we need
If you dive on your own…
If you dive dive dive…

Once again

I've never done anything strange
I'm just alive
I never got nowhere great
By surprise
All I do is silly things
With my life
I'm sorry already but
I think I'll survive

I have to walk
Though I'm gonna fall down again
the same as always
but I stay tough
Hope I'm gonna rise and remain
To swim through the rain
Once again

It's nice to see the girls swirl
Like flies around you
You say you don't notice, but
Well, I'm sure you do
And it's funny to see you father
Grow physically through you
You way you want action but
You've got too much to lose
If you don't choose to

Walk…
How are you gonna fall down again
And learn something, oh
Life's insane`
Hope you're gonna rise and remain
To swim through the rain
Once again

My mummy said
You get you head
Sorted out
It's for the best
My mummy said
Girl get you head
Sorted out
It's fot the best
My mummy said
Girl get your head
Sort yourself out
Before it's too late and there's no one around
Once again

Kiss me

Oh my love
Cover me
Melting down
Chemistry
High above
Touching your skin
Till the last of the distance
Fades in
I cover you up in your shell
Make us forget
Makes us well

Ooh Kiss me down

Oh my love
Come to me
Make us match
Makes us weak
For Mr. Coolwind
Offers to match at first sight
Sensory nerves say it's
Alright

Ooh Kiss me down

Sing Song Sally

Sing song sally
Hits the roads
She fled from everything
They foretold
So
Frankly spoken
They'd adore
To see her falling in her quest for
Love love love

Little sally
Shameless girl
They are just as jealous as you
Question their world
She'd say: “ok
I'll be going
All the way
But the hardest way of living
Is from day to day”

Lazy days
In the sun
It doesn't matter if your battle's won
If it's done
Living day to day

Ahaah
It's so sad
Little sally heads
Straight to heartache
It's been said
Silly sally
Heads straight to heartache
It's too bad
Silly sally asked for a heartache
Lazy days
In the sun
It doesn't matter if your battle's won
It's fun
Living life
Day to day
‘Cause it's better to burn out than to fade
Away
It's better to burn than fade to grey

It's so sad
Silly sally heads straight to heartache
It's so

Leave me there

Leave me there
By the fire
Cover me
With a blanket
Over me dead body
Hold on
Take a sandwich
And keep me company
‘Till I
Sleep
Over my dead body
I'm so cold

Leave me here
Think of nothing
Or tell me everything
About
Usssss
I'm so cold

We're walking
Closely together
In the park
At night
Almost full moon
For lunatics and lovers
I'm worthy of you

Darling
I'm looking for protection
After ten days of rain
Everything is soaking wet
Baby does make me
Forget
He said: “Oh what a love”

Walk

So if you'd walk
A thousand miles
Until you'd reach our home tonight
We'd set fire
To everything
So what do you think

Through heavy snowfall
And bitter cold
I hope you're packed
In solid clothes
Your shiny mooses
Don't need to rest
It's for the best

Maybe it is true
Love's to bleed
True love
Is to need
Sometimes
It flows to the sea
That's why you always come
Back to me

With jam & coffee
And toasted bread
On Sunday morning
We'll talk and sit
And we're surprised
That we are blessed
Such happiness

You're so attractive
Your salty smell
Is my favourite flavour
I live to tell
That by tonight
You will be here
Come, I'm in need

True love
To need, we have
Agreed
True love don't need no receipt

Here In The Woods

Here in the woods spirits can fly
Deep in the forest
It's theirs and it's my desire to scream
About happiness and things to believe
Spirits are haunting my thoughts and my grief
Desire to scream…

Try me baby
Won't you believe my love for you
I'll keep you warm in goods and in bed
I'll make your dreams come true

Here in the woods
Everything seems easy to solve
And easy to see
‘Cause distance makes much clear

About things we don't know
Or we just want to play hard to get
It's a negative fact
We sometimes seem such fools

Try me baby
Won't you receive my love for you
And I'll keep you warm in goods and in bed
I'll make your dreams come true

Here in the woods
Sunshine through trees
Wind blows my thoughts
If you know what I mean
And all things seem distant dreams
Desire to belong to you
Desire to scream…

*** Thanx a lot to Mansize for this one ***

 

An Pierlé & White Velvet

*** Thanx a lot to Luke for these lyrics ***

Jupiter

Jupiter looks good tonight
But I fear to fall into the sky
Let it be for what it's worth
Let it bleed into a mild surprise

I mustn't make you call
Any way at all
I mustn't make you call
We ain't got a future, that is all

Let the game start
A dogfight in the backyard
We must face reality
To impress me you need more that action hero clothes and sex appeal

I mustn't make you call
Any way at all
I mustn't make you call
We ain't got a future, that is all

I don't know the way love flows
In other words it's dangerous to me
All my future hopes could be destroyed
In less than, one, two, three

And I know, and I know this ain't built to last
And I know, and I know that all good things must pass
But this one flees too fast

I mustn't make you call
Any way at all
I mustn't make you call
We may have a future after all

How does it feel

Anything lost
Anything broken I'll share the cost
But I wonder how does it feel
After the fight
Panting, still shaking off melting ice
We are wondering how we should feel

Hoping that we will receive
Evidence for our belief
Life is worth as much as you rate it
Burst out laughing, lick your wounds
Don't bear malice but assume
Life will be as well as you make it
Promise you will never stop wondering
How does it feel

When I seem blind
To all the dark thoughts stirring your mind
Please forgive me, I try to see
You're like a seal
You can hermetically shut down your ears
Makes me nervous, come on, get real

Hoping that we will receive
Evidence for our belief
Life is worth as much as you rate it
Burst out laughing, lick your wounds
Don't bear malice but assume
Life will be as well as you make it
Promise you will never stop wondering
How does it feel

How does it feel
How does it feel
How does it feel

Good year

Once in a while we should freeze time
To look back sober and rewind
Good for us
We try to live at present, well
Glimpse of the pearl, re-shut the shell
Memory graph

It's been a good year for us
It's been a good year for us
Good year hunters

What's done is past but for a while
It was the absolute present time
Mind fucks us
Because if now is all there is
I'm philosophically quizzed
When does time
Take time to look behind

It's been a good year for us
It's been a good year for us
Good year hunters
It's been a good year for us
It's been a good year for us
Good year hunters

Time's a long chain
Knitting, knitting on a chain
Knitting
Time's a long chain
Knitting, knitting on a chain
Knitting on a chain, chain
Knitting on a long chain
Knitting on a long chain
Knitting, knitting on a chain
Knitting on a chain, chain
Knitting on a long chain
Knitting on a long chain
Knitting, knitting on a chain
Knitting on a chain, chain
Knitting on a long chain
Knitting on a long chain

I really try to realise
To capture time
By living twice
Now and now
'Cause now is now but yet it's gone
When the future turns into things done
Just in time

We're not surprised
It's never been foreseen
Exactly how it seems to turn out

I love you

You'd better pray
The souls that you save
Will earn you a place up in heaven
If I have my share
I'll be rotting in hell
But I'll definitely have had much more pleasure

You'd better watch out for a lost cause
You'd better watch out for yourself

'Cause I love you any more
Let's not believe you get everything dropped in your hands
'Cause I love you any more
If I save your neck it's to break your back
If I save your neck it's to break your back

You'd better pray
The price that you paid
Is worth at least seventy times seven
If I have my share
I'd be lost in despair
But I'll grant you your safe place in heaven

You'd better watch out for a lost cause
You'd better watch out for yourself

'Cause I love you any more
Let's not believe you get everything strewn at your feet
'Cause I love you any more
If I save your neck it's to break your back
If I save your neck it's to break your back

Not the end

Will I be full of doubts or full of deeds
And have the guts to still believe
You have to fight for the right cause
When all seems lost, when judgement's poor
When god and bad melt into one
Could I be someone you could count on

As for myself, I've no excuse
I'll gladly win, I'll badly lose
It's in the choices that you choose
To dare to press where you've been bruised
You can't predict how you'll react
Till cruel fiction turns into fact

If I could believe this is something new
Well, I don't believe this is something new
This must end, this won't end
If this don't end we'll be through

Will I find, will I find unsuspected strength
Would I be capable of killing with my bare hands
Would I be thrilled when flooded with adrenaline and fear of death
Will I sense guilt or be dragged along by unexpected kicks

And while the people on the streets
Exceed all records that we keep
I close my eyes to what they need
I lost all sensitivity
We do not want this status quo
While our purses yawn for
For always more, more, more
More, more, more
More, more, more
More, more, more

If I could believe this is something new
Well, I don't believe this is something new
Shame on me, shame on me
Shame on me and shame on you

And, no, I don't think that I overstate
One fears monsters one creates
And with so many things to lose
It gets important how you choose
So easily drawn to certainty
'Cause what I fear is often what's unknown to me

And you can, and you can say she nag, nag, nags
She speaks in tongues, she waves with flags
That don't help nothing, don't do good
Well, tell me how you think it should
Be better done, what can we do
I'll leave the question up to you

I don't believe this is something new
I don't believe this is something new
This won't help, this don't help
This won't end, this don't end
This don't end, this won't end
Shame on me and shame on you

Many roads

Don't ask me in
Eyes glittering
I might stay the night

Many roads that lead to you
Might lead me off the path
I don't want to leave behind

Come tuck me in
I long for sin
Wish me nighty-night

Many roads that lead to you
Lying in my bed, biding my time
Many roads that lead to you
Saw a shooting star fall and disappear

I wish you were mine
To kiss the day goodnight

Tenderness

You can't retreat when life goes wrong
You can't imagine what to do when this is done
Did you expect to see
That you're still nowhere near finding the best of me

You've been unable to dream
You've been unable to see
If there's no tenderness

You don't give up when life gets tough
You can't imagine what you'll do when the sea gets rough
'Cause if the big black wolf is surely going to come
You can't just mess things up then pray you've done nothing wrong

You've been unable to dream
You've been unable to feel
If there's no tenderness

You've been unable to dream
You've been unable to see
If there's no tenderness
If there's no tenderness

It's got to be me

I don't care for what's coming next
It's a matter of saying, of seeing the right context
I give up
The hindmost dog may catch the hare
But I never catch nothing, it's startlingly unfair
I give up, it's enough

It's got to be me
And I don't want to waste more time
I want to roam freely
With the best designed
But I collapse, yes, I collapse in my own traps

I don't think you'll ever understand
By what I mean when I say that i'm Alice in wonderland
I give up
I share my life with the deadly doubts
I'm the ostrich girl, grow my head in a hole in the ground
I give up, it's enough

It's got to be me
And I don't want to waste more time
I want to roam freely
With the most enlightened
And I go blind, yes, I go blind with jealousy
I give up on my own luck

It's got to be me
And I don't want to waste more time
I want to roam freely
With the most refined
But I collapse, yes, I collapse

It's got to be me
And I don't want to waste more time
I want to roam freely
With the best designed
And I collapse, yes, I collapse in my own traps
I give up on my own luck

Poor Danny

Poor Danny
I lost your heart

Poor Danny
I came for you
I came to see you
Lots of times

And then you loved me
You loved me
And you laughed my jokes away

Poor Danny
I came for you to hold me
Look
I drown

I walked the seaside, I walked it sideways
How we hurt ourselves to sleep
I watched the stairways fall into the cellar door
But you, you came for more

Poor Danny
I came for you to love me
But then you said
You needed to explore

I walked the seaside, I walked it sideways
I'd walk a thousand miles to dance you again
But damn you, love me well
You said you'd get with me again

How we search for some future

Snakesong

Do the best things come first I was in two minds
So I tried my luck in the garden of dusk where the wise snake presides
How was I to know I'd be badly advised
Before I fell from the blistering sky with eyes opened wide

"so," said the snake, "what brings you to me"
He sizzled about lust and the small fare he'd charge as a favour to me
So warm was his breath but so cooling his skin
That I forgot every warning I got, my resistance grew thin
And he said, "soon, baby, soon, baby"

I guess you wonder
I guess you wonder

The best things come first, where was my mind
I should have known that a snake on a throne is bound to beguile

I guess you wonder
I guess you wonder

And the instant you left I knew what not to decide
And the instant you left I knew what not to decide
Lost my innocence due to my otherwise much revered pride
How stupid I was to rely on the snake's advice

Mexico

A better place than Mexico is hard to be found
Being a long, long way from home eases your mind
It's hard to take courage with no one around
But the deeper you dig the more you'll find without doubt

'Cause how would you feel without best friends
Who'll notice you're there and need a hand
Every day in the morning light
I'm waiting for you to arrive

How would you save me if you would sense I was falling apart
Would you rise to the occasion
How would you know I was living a special all time low
You'd make me believe that you know

'Cause how would you feel without best friends
Who'll notice you're there and need a hand
Every day in the morning light
'Cause everything's easy when you know how to treat me right

A better place than Mexico is hard to be found
Being a long, long way from home eases your mind
It's hard to take courage with no one around
But it's healthy for one's self when you're down

How would you save me if you would sense I was falling apart
Would you rise to the occasion
How would you know I was living a special all time low
You'd make me believe that you know

'Cause how does it feel when you best friends
Notice you're there and need a hand
Every day in the morning light
Everything's easy when you know how to please me
Again and again and again and again till i'm fine

Cold winter

She searches her doubts
And she turns over stones
She wonders where could it have gone
She ploughs her subconscious
She shouts at the mountains
Until she provokes avalanches

Through that cold, cold winter
That cold, cold winter long

She races through tunnels
To catch the white flashes
She hopes they will take her to him
She counts down the seconds
She's nervously waiting
Till sleep will allow her to dream

Through that cold, cold winter
That cold, cold winter long

He waits across the river
She jumps in the water
Gets caught by the current
But she hears him calling her name
Every night the same scene
As he comes to visit
And she comes to watch him
How she longs to touch him
She jumps in the water
Gets caught by the current
And she drifts away from him again

Baby, how I want to be with you
Baby, how I ache to be with you
Throughout that cold, cold winter long

Baby, how I want to be with you
Baby, how I want to be with you
Baby, how I want to be with you
Baby, how I want to be with you
Baby, how I want to be with you

Softly the river flows to wash her persona

Through that cold, cold winter long

Closing time

Should we get straight to the essentials
Will I be strong enough to cope
Should I reply to tricky questions
When I know my answer's wrong

This is a one-way situation
You cannot speak of what you did
And while you left so many questions
We must guess that this is it

And now i'm lost and overruled
My eyes sore and
As time was closing in on you
Fear stroking

Would you still like me if I blew it
If I deceived you in your grief
Though I can't know how you have suffered
'Cause we live things differently

And now i'm lost and overruled
My eyes sore and
I gently lay my hands on you
Fear stroking

Let's believe
I try to release you
You call on me
But I can't receive you
Come on and share this thing with me
I know you can't
I know you can't

Why can't you share this thing with me

And now i'm lost and overruled
My eyes are closed and
As time was closing in on you
Fear stroking

And now i'm lost and overruled
My eyes sore and
I gently lay my hands on you
Fear stroking

I know you can't

 

Hinterland

Little by little

Caught between two worlds I lie
Baby I can't sleep
Baby you can rest assured
That I would never leave

It's so hard to keep the line
Between what used to be
And what the future bears in mind
The secrets haunting me

Oh here
We're running into dark clouds
But if we try to stick to solid ground
We'll find our way
And sort it out

Even in the middle of the darkest doubts
If we tread lightly, feel our way about
Little by little we will sort it out
Little by little we will sort it out

Close your eyes and shut the blinds
Float upon the sea
Let your worries drift away
Upon tranquillity

Baby we all make mistakes
That is how we learn
But sometimes we need water to
Soothe the aching burns

Oh here
We're running into dark clouds
But if we try to stick to solid ground
We'll find our way and sort it out

Even in the middle of the darkest doubts
If we tread lightly, feel our way about
Little by little we will sort it out
Little by little we will sort it out

We walk on thin ice
While we'd like to roll
In the soft white blanket of fluffy snow
We wonder if we lost the way home

And though you mostly
Tend to see what's best
For you to do for such a needy me
I know we lost a little control

Oh here
We're running into dark clouds
But if we try to stick to solid ground
We'll find our way and sort it out

Even in the middle of the darkest doubts
If we tread lightly, feel our way about
Little by little we will sort it out

Oh here
We're running into dark clouds
But if we try to stick to solid ground
We'll find our way and sort it out

Even in the middle of the darkest doubts
If we tread lightly, feel our way about
Little by little we will sort it out
Little by little we will sort it out
Little by little we will sort it out
Little by little we will sort it out
Little by little we will sort it out

Where did this come from

Where did this come from
It suddenly pops its head
I thought it so wonderful
Heart to heart with you in the unmade bed
We'd make the difference
We'd go all the way, never settle for less
So in love, so obsessed

We climbed a mountain
We fell like we flew
Too fast, too soon
We drank from the fountain
I fed on your words,
I was drunk with you
But just when I was mellow
Words like poisoned arrows

You think you think ugly thoughts
You think there's no one with such a black heart as yourself
You hate yourself for losing
You hate yourself for seducing me when you felt down
How, do you think I know so well what's going on

I know I've hurt you too
And turned my back on you
I've been letting us fall apart

Is it really so embarrassing
To be truly naked darling
Show me you've got the heart

Where did this come from
I see you are hurting
Your burden is bending your back
Could it be undone
Don't you see I'm just trying to talk
When you think I attack
Then stay undercover
Poor ungrateful lover

Hide & Seek

Then you're dark and then you're clear
Of course you're far
When you're not near, oh oh

Then a wolf and then too meek
Your favourite game is hide and seek
Oh oh

You're isolated
All wired wrong
Whatever timing's
Wrong

Then you're cursed and then you're blessed
Your favourite game
Is being obsessed, oh
Then you're cool and then red hot
Of course you are when you are not, oh

You're isolated
All wired wrong
Whatever timing's
Wrong

Mixed up heartbeat next to mine in sorrow, oh
Sugar sweet with lots of bile and sorrow
And I hope you'll find a way through this ordeal

Johnny
Johnny you're mine

Broke my Bones

You just broke my bones
You've just thrown up stones
Whenever you fear a lonely walk
You come scratching at my door
Like a guilty dog

Hell, I should have known
You would break my bones
Whatever I do, it's never right
You just grunt and holler
While you feed on fights

Let it rain down
On the playground
Which is stained now
I just cut your throat

You just broke my bones
One too many toes
Whenever you fear it's going too fine
You come crashing like a bull at my china spine

Let it rain down
I've no shame left now
Shut your game down
I will pack and go

And there's, no Further delay possible
No further excuse to postpone it
I've got to move and I've got to get on with it now

I've regrown my bones
Your true face has shown
And maybe I'm glad you crossed the line
Now I know for sure I must grow a much stronger spine
You'll be caught in tangled shadows
Of your own design

Jungle

It's a jungle
It's a city forest built
I don't wanna stand still
And I don't wanna move on

It's a jungle
Made of concrete and stone
Better not roam here alone
But I don't wanna move on

It's rather cold
It's rather dim
I can't escape the fear within
And you can walk
Whatever way
You're overwhelmed by all this grey
And I don't wanna move on
I don't wanna move on

It's a city
It's the nightmare complete
Scaring me off at will
But I don't wanna move on

It's a city made of flesh and bone
I've build it on my own
So I don't wanna move on

It's rather cold
It's rather dim
I can't explain the fear within
Whatever way
You wanna roam
You're overwhelmed by grey and stone

Red lights on
Red lights on

It's a jungle
It's a city forest built
I don't wanna stand still
But I don't wanna move on

It's a jungle
Made of concrete and stone
Better not roam here alone
But I don't wanna move on

I don't wanna move on
I don't wanna move on
I don't wanna move on
I don't wanna move on

Lonely One and Only

And we move
Running back and forth
The landslide
Let it loose
Or you'll end up with a sore backside

We've really got a knack for the bizarre
Now everything looks backwards from where we are

Someone like you
Lives wildly
Someone like me
Benignly
Tries to defuse
Whatever bomb
You played with today
All debris goes down, down, down, down
Mowing down the lawn
Shaving off the skin
So whatever worms and shame will be revealed

And we move
Surfing down the road
Landslide
It will prove
We won't tumble overboard, damn right

How to keep a mountainside from tumbling down
Just try to keep the chaos from the neighbour's lawn

Someone like you
Lives wildly
Someone like me
Benignly
Tries to defuse
Whatever bomb you laid for me

Now all debris comes down, down, down, down
Ploughing through the lawn
Shaving off the skin
And whatever worms and shame revealed like sin

The scenery is floating by
Wiggling my toes and thumbs
Enjoying the ride

My lonely
One and only

Fort Jerome

Saved by the bell
I came close to drowning
Saved by the bell
I was hosed while drying

Waiting at Fort Jerome
Black gulls crying
Waning at Fort Jerome
And I can't go
No, no

Waiting at Fort Jerome
I just caught an angel sighing
I want to know when you'll come home

Rain
Tons of rain
Diamond bells
All summer

Waves
Endless waves
Shave my nerves
To the bone

Waiting at Fort Jerome
Dark horizon
Waning at Fort Jerome
And I won't go
No, no

Waiting at Fort Jerome
I just cut an angel's silence
I sent him back for what he told

Everything is new again

Breathing
Slowly
Heartbeat rolling
I never thought we'd turn to be
So disillusioned

We've got
So much
Still not
Happy
When are we finally fulfilled
When is it enough
I wonder

I see
You're exhausted
Restless
I'm truly sorry I can't help
You should go to bed real soon

I sense you being near
Awake next to me
But we're pretending to be fast asleep
Not to have to talk again

I sense you being awake
Awake next to me
But we're pretending to be fast asleep

What do you want me for anyway
Can you remember
Can you remember
What it was you wished me for
Anyway
Anyway

What do you want me for anyway
Can you remember
Can you remember
What it was you wished me for
Anyway
Anyway

Doubting
Your true
Motives
Translates
What do I guess you're thinking of
Ten to one I'm wrong again

We should
Go to
Sleep now
For to-
Morrow there's another day and when we wake
Everything is new again
Everything is new again
Everything is new again

Wakey Wakey

I can't sleep
This motorcycle spins
Around
My house
On and on and

I must keep
Watch over those
I love

Wakey wakey
Open your eyes
Can't you see there's lots of things
Happening around here
Lately

Shakey shakey
Aren't you concerned
That it's getting out of hand
And you're not even looking slightly
Worried
Wake up, hurry

I can't sleep
My mind is slowly
Closing in
On me
On and on and on
My head must weigh a thousand pounds

When I think of you
The lights begin to shake
An army guards my wake

When I think of you
The sky is falling down
I feel the world turn 'round

I can't keep my head
I can't keep my head
On my Shoulders

I can't keep my head
On
I can't talk with you

See it now
See it now
See it now

Mean Reds

Here's to my lovers
I loved you all
I liked you best
Yet, I confess

I've longed for others
Now I've done nothing I regret
Yet, something stirs

'Cause life's a rumble
It blew to the moon
What more can I do
Than fall apart for you

The silent raids
The mean mean reds

Chaos and order
I must rename the cat called cat
Yet, that's much too late

Find out, discover
I told you never love a rat
Yet
One can't choose

Beware of carefree ramblers
They're loosening too soon
What more can I do
Than fall apart for you

Silence reigns
The silent raids
The mean mean reds
The mean reds
The mean reds

 

Strange Days

The House Of Sleep

In hiding
Once more lying low
Until it blows over
So help me God to slowly recover
Since you're nowhere near on the scene
I'm wandering the empty spaces in between
Now I know the deal
I find it too hard to face reality

In hiding
Explore on the go
The tideland shores
Deciding
What can be done
But I don't know
'Cause there's no one here to explain
What I already know, the knowledge I have gained
For blindness, guilt and shame
Have caused me to investigate the same old things again
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Blown apart
I am standing in the ashes of my heart
Thrown off guard
I have elevated hardship to an art
Disgusted by violence
I've been looking for guidance
Subsidence
Angel of guidance
Behold
Angel of guidance
Behold
Angel of guidance
Behold
Behold

Strange Days

Please believe in what you do
Don't let them change you
Don't let them touch your soul
Because it's beautiful
But they won't let you know

And please believe in what you do
Don't let them break you down
Don't let them fool you 'round
Because that's all they know
Because that's what they do

Strange days
Why let them lead the way
They choose the games you play
They got stuck inside the day
Don't let them think they'll save the day
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Don't let them think instead of you
Don't let them chase you
Don't let them frighten you
Because your weakness make them suck the best from you

And please don't wait until you see
It's time, take action now
Don't let them think they know
'Cause when you're small and sweet
They want to keep you so

Strange ways
Why let them lead the games
They choose they way you play
They got stuck inside the day
Just let them think they'll save the day

Strange ways
Why let them lead the games
They choose they way you play
They got stuck inside the day
Just let them think they'll get away with it

Heart Of Winter

In just a moments time
It'll be hard to remember
Where it went
Precisely how it felt in November

So gentle talk to me
In the faults of remembrance
Once in a while I will
Tenderly unpacking what you still

Love true for you
Truly you
Let my fingers trace
Find familiar faces in you

You took me by surprise
Growing inside me for ages
Making me fall apart
Yet binding me with strings around my heart
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
When everyday you changed
As you grow so clever
Beautiful girl you see
Straight into the deepest part of me

Love true for you
Truly you
Let my fingers trace
All the familiar faces in you

All for you
You're my destiny
All for you
You're my love, my need
But you're but your own
You're but your own
You're but your own

Winds

Blow your winds of fortune
I paid the highest toll
My life has slowed to static
I want it on a roll

I've waited for the longer days
I prayed for light and warmth
But now the days are brighter
I'm still longing for your arms

I feel the waves of cold and grey
Break upon my shore
And all I ever wanted
I crave it even more
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I suffer from your icy palms
I'd suffer for your bed
I went to please the crowds
Got loneliness instead

Forlorn
I'm eternally tearing apart
From the hope
You stitched upon my heart

Blow now, winds of fortune
I paid the highest toll
I've earned my share of happiness
Now I need to take control

I want to turn the page now
I deserve a brand new book
I'm ready to erase
All the effort that it took

Forlorn
I'm eternally tearing apart
At the seams of hope
With which you stitched my heart

I know I should get up now
I've got myself to blame
But I'm paralysed to pieces
Inflamed with utter shame

I should have loved you more
When I still had a chance
I should have cleaned the floor
Before the ballroom dance
There are a million ways
In which I could have changed
But then I couldn't escape from what was prearranged

Oh, I'm eternally tearing apart
From the hope you stitched upon my heart

Forlorn
I'm eternally tearing apart
At the seams of hope
With which you stitched my heart

Let go, let go
Let go, let go

This Burning

I feel your blood inside my veins
I hear your voice inside my brain
I hold your heart inside my chest
I feel your anger in my breast

This burning is so harsh
It's a rash on my skin
This yearning goes so far
I'm burning up from within
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Your thirst inside my mouth
I breathe the air you're breathing out
I clothe your body when undressed
My eyes close with your need to rest

This burning is so harsh
It's a rash on my skin
This yearning goes so far
I'm burning up from within

I feed your ego with my love
I think the thoughts you think too rough
I keep your secrets in my ear
I keep your dirty conscience clear

This burning is so harsh
It's a rash on my skin
This yearning goes so far
I'm burning up from within

This burning is so harsh
It's a rash on my skin
This yearning goes so far
I'm burning up from within

Such A Shame

( Talk Talk Cover )

Such a shame
To believe in escape
"A live on every face"
And that's a change
Till I finally left with the "8"

Tell me to relax
I just stare
Maybe I don't know if I should change
A feeling that we share

It's a shame
Number me with rage
It's a shame
Number me in haste
Such a shame
This eagerness to change
It's a shame
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The dice decide my fate
And that's a shame
In these trembling hands my faith
Tells me to react "I don't care"
Maybe it's unkind if I should change
A feeling that we share

It's a shame
Number me with rage
It's a shame
Number me in haste
Such a shame
This eagerness to change
Such a shame

Tell me to relax
I just stare
Maybe I don't know if I should change
A feeling that we share

It's a shame
Number me with rage
It's a shame
Number me in haste
It's a shame
Write across my name
"Such a shame"
This eagerness to change

It's a shame
Such a shame

Solid Rain

The solid rain is punching these
Holes into the cardboard scenery
The colours dissolve like tears rolling down
Now the mountain view mixes with the lake and the lawn
And I save what I can with the tip of my gown
But a watercolour painting gets worse when redrawn
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
For I lost you again
Maybe I'll have to find you again

We got a taste of sweet success
The brilliant lights and the shitty mess
There was a silent code, a master plan
I was to be the sweet loving angel
You'd be the beastly man
But it grew out of shape
Now we're tired of charades
And we started loathing the roles we'd to play

Oh, I lost you again
Maybe I must try to find you again

There was a silent code, a cunning plan
I got to be the sweet and lovely angel
You'd be the beastly man
But it grew out of shape
Now we're tired of charades
And we started loathing the roles we'd to play

Oh, I lost you again
Maybe I must try to find you again
I lost you again
I must find you again

Secret Thoughts

The secret thoughts I harbour within myself
Were safely chained and anchored, secured my health
I cannot hold them back much longer
They're burning through my skin
Yet I suppose a raging hunger devours you from within
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I went to war unarmored
I felt the rain
Then in the slowest of motions
The smell of pain

The lights are low and nothing hurts me now
Nothing hurts me now
Yet I suppose they turned me inside out
Turned me inside out

The changing of the guard
The fear to miss the start
The trumpets call you
The sick, the moans, the calls
The fire turned them all to leather statues
Warped views

I cannot hold it back much longer
It's eating through my skin
Yet I suppose a raging hunger
Will chew you from within

The changing of the guard
The fear to miss the start
The trumpets calling
The sick, the moans, the calls
A pyre for us all
The men are falling
Falling

Suburban Skies

Excellent view
I fly in the sun and think of you
My heart in my boot
I've been told what to do
Just following orders

The world seems so small
Marklin trains moving miniature dolls
I'm blinded by light
While I cut through the blue
Will I fall for the good of us all
Live to marry you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
For a while
The suburban skies turn burgundy
After the fire
I'll return to my own desires

Down here we've been told
About burning birds and hearts of coal
Could it be true
In my mind there's only fire
For you, only for you
Always in fear
Always expect to wake and hear
The sirens and drones
We will hide in the ground
Pray to God
Not to be found
Not to fall here

For a while
The suburban skies turned burgundy
After the fire
We were left with burned out desires

The old world's gone
There's no return to what's been
What different memories we shall have
And we'll both have to go on
'Cause what's been done has been done
The guild, the anger, the cost
The future, the happiness lost
The turning

For a while
The suburban skies were burning
After the fire
We were left with estranged desires

Coming Of Age

I should try to try less hard
Let things come by themselves
Don't grasp at what is there
Let go and be confident

There's always something coming
I know it so well
But only for others
A curse, a spell

It is hard to make the start
Deciding what it is you want
There are so many risks to take
So many mistakes ?? to make

And there's always something coming
I know it so well
But only for others
A curse, a spell

Is it the dread of losing youth, coming of age
Pulling to shreds the need to please, coping with change
Is it the beauty taking on different shapes
One has to truly learn to appreciate the taste
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
When the critic in my inner ear
Shouts louder than what I'm trying to hear
When I'm fighting to prevent myself from being
My one and worst enemy

There's always something coming
I know it so well
But only for others
A curse, a spell

Is it the dread of losing youth, coming of age
Pulling to shreds the need to please, coping with change
Is it the beauty taking on different shapes
One has to truly learn to appreciate the taste
The taste, the taste
One has to truly learn to appreciate the taste

You Just Wait

You just wait
Take your time before anticipating
I will shortly bleed to death
Don't you know silent tears follow laughter

Baby
Save me
Pave the way for me

You just wait
Take your time before anticipating
I will shortly leave for Echo City
Don't you know silent tears follow laughter

Baby
Save me
Break the waves for me

Always unsure what we're waiting for
The sad truth we're waiting on
Always unsure what we thrive upon
When the foul mood lingers on
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Sour
Grapes
Poor
Babe

You just wait


Strange Ways EP

The Cold Song

What power art thou
Who from below
Hast made me rise
Unwillingly and slow
From beds of everlasting snow

See'st thou not how stiff
And wondrous old
Far unfit to bear the bitter cold
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I can scarcely move
Or draw my breath
Can scarcely move
Or draw my breath

Let me, let me, let me
Freeze again
Let me, let me, let me
Freeze again to death

Let me, let me, let me
Freeze again to death

Wounded Heart

I hear the darkness appear
Inside my wretched heart
As cold and blackness come near
We don't learn how to part

A wounded mind
A wounded heart
A wounded mind
A wounded heart

It's unavoidable dear
There's nothing you can do
So don't feel sorry for me
This is my shade of blue

A wounded mind
A wounded heart
A wounded mind
A wounded heart

Baby please, come back to me
Have we lost all possible possibilities
Once for all, all at once
Only took you a split second to lose it all
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
If my heart were a dartboard
You hit the bull's eye close
I opened up for love but
Reaction spoiled the cause

A wounded mind
A wounded heart
A wounded mind
A wounded heart

Baby please, return to me
Have we lost all possible possibilities
Once for all and all for one
Only took you a split second to quit it all
Only took you a split second to quit it all

Weather Chemistry

Yellow sky
Where the clouds hang upside down
The heaven's broken
Weather chemistry

Rub me dry
Warm me up and give me cups of tea to blow in
Turn the heat to three

I will be better off in time
Elegant youth
Always defiant
Why trust your instincts over mine
We dance along the fracture lines

We defy
The force of nature plague the giant with a blowgun
Vengeance guaranteed
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Quite a fight
Ending up with being throw into the ocean
Shiver like a leaf

And I know it's getting dangerous
The touchdown of the storm
I'm such a long time hunter for tornadoes
I get excited when I feel the deadly calm

When the wind starts blowing
And the reeds flatten on the ground
And the rain starts roaring
I'll just lie down low and turn off the alarm

We skip our duties, take our rights
Arrogant youth, always defying
Why trust your instincts over mine
When it comes to dancing along the fracture lines

We stretch the boundaries of humankind
Yellow sky
Where the clouds hang upside down
Heaven's broken
Weather chemistry

Acting Modestly

Acting modestly, I bulge inside
I'm gonna be invited by the king tonight
Seasons change, I kept my waning glory
Inside a glass house where it slowly fortified

Move over baby, let's pretend
I give you time to run
When things are over, it's called end
Blow you to kingdom come

Acting modestly, I bulge with pride
I'm gonna catch my breath, go into overdrive
Meet me, near me
Where I'm standing outside of myself
I'm bursting through my brain
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Acting courteous while so rude inside
I will extract your elixir of power tonight
Please me, please me, I'm your past and future
Dusk and dawn, I'm thirsty for your crown

Wrong Things Done

We try hard to still believe
Better than today, today

My dear love, I know that grief
Can't be cut away
Too deep
Poor pain relief
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Wrong things done wrong to please you
Try me again my baby blue
Sweet revenge when I forgave you
Try some forgiveness on me too

I ran fast to pass myself
You let me get away
But dear love, I'm still attached
Cut me off, release the latch
Or run to catch me

Let me turn, let me turn, let me turn
Let me turn, let me turn, let me turn
Let me turn, let me turn, let me turn
Let me turn, let me turn, let me turn, let me turn

Wrong things done wrong to please you
Try me again my baby blue
Sweet revenge when I forgave you
Try some forgiveness on me too

Let's Move

Keep me on your bedside
I will just wait here till you're done
Patience, a sea of patience
Till then I'll rest alone
I'll rest alone like no one should

Plant me in your garden
I'll try to grow out of your head
Sow me, so you can mow me later on when you're dead
I'll go ahead while no one should
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Isn't it unkind
How the echo of our life stays behind
To slowly flow away with time
Oh, while no one should

Take me as an extra
I'll take great care not to weigh you down
Let me, can't you just let me breathe your air like my own
I rest alone, like no one should

Look At Me Now

Look at me now, again
Don't make a fuss about my odd behaviour
Temptation often
Lies hidden in trust
Would you tempt its patience

If we don't stay here
In these memories, will you appear out of place
But I must keep calm
In a while, in the end, after all
It shouldn't mean a thing
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
If there's nothing wrong with me
Nothing's wrong with you

Everyone waits for something
Everyone waits for something
That's never to come
Why change the ways of nature

Everyone waits for something
That's never to come
Why change the ways of nature
The game is over, the game is over
The game is over, the game

Don't make a fuss about my odd behaviour

Arches

Feel for the Child

The tempest of your grief
Left
Nothing but debris
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
You thought that coming clean
Would
Offer relief

I feel for the child in you
I feel for the child in you

The last words that you said
Cling on the covers of our bed
An animal that shed
Its hair
Frightened to death

It's a solitary fight

I feel for the child in you
I feel for the child in you

And you drown
Yourself
In silence

You defeat
Your loneliness
And your prayers
Defy your violence
And you're caught up
In your own regrets

I feel for the child in you
I feel for the child in you

I feel for the child in you
I feel for the child
In you

Certain Days

In certain ways
I hope my hope's holding on
On certain days
I so desire to go on
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Leave the shelter of what I have known so well
And drown in you and live to tell
That all things worthy turn like dirt in a shell
Pearls in oysters may take years to swell around the sand

If sometimes life's upon a shelf on hold
Let's keep boldly ploughing on
If sometimes truth
Is hard to see
Will you open my eyes for me

Leave the shelter of what we thought we knew so well
And explore and live to tell
That all things worthy turn like dirt in a shell
Pearls in oysters may take years to swell around the sand

Will you open your eyes for me

Leave the shelter of what we thought we knew so well
And explore and live to tell
That all things worthy turn like dirt in a shell
Pearls in oysters may take years to swell around the sand

Vibra

If you say so
You're probably right
If you say so

You're probably right
You know everything
Ahead of its time
Way before

And I fear to fall
As I'm hanging down
Though I
need to follow
My own mind

Free me free me free me and save me
From my own wasted time
Teach me teach me
I need to regain it
Bear my own life
In mind
As I see it
The pressure mounts
The pressure mounts
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
I forget
That what you lose
Can turn you 'round

If you say so
You're probably right
I am play-dough
In the hands of your mind
I have taught myself
To fear fights
And elope

Free me free me free me and save me
From my own wasted time
Teach me teach me
I need to regain it
Bear my own life
In mind
As I see it
The pressure mounts
The pressure mounts

I forget
That what you lose
Can turn you 'round

Birds love Wires

I've been crying for no reason but the pain remains
So there you go
Birds love wires

In the deep dark vault where the night remains
Oh, there you go
Girls play lyres, oh

I've been pulling at the strings of departing dates
So there you go
Birds love wires

In the deep dark sea where the night remains
So there you go
Washed away we flow

And the little things of life
Were surprises
Were surprises in shadows

I've been told to grow
I've been told to be silent
Oh, there you go
Wrongs to choose from

I've been crying for no reason but the pain is the same
Oh, there you go
Birds love wires, oh

So there's things that I don't understand
That is why this beautiful earth
Runs haywire
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Haven't thinking of God
Haven't thinking ahead
Oh, there you go
Washed away we flow

It's the lesser Gods
That hunt for prayers
That hunt for love with fire

Great
I'm so lost
And crave

Craving
I'm so damnlost
I turn and crave

Great
Thy slow sorrow
Oh, I can't face

It's a day in hell but the warmth is good
So there you go
Caught by wires

Having straight to heaven
Having taught to run
So, there you go
Girls play lyres, oh
Oh, there you go
Birds love wires
Oh, there you go
Birds love wires

The Road Is Burning

We're driving in silence again
This turning point reached once again
Hope for the best and for change
Lightning shatters the rain
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
The answers we found came too late
We've almost closed up the gates

Though we hope
For the best and for change
Lightning shatters the rain
Again gain gain gain gain gain

Close to nowhere

Though we hope
For the best and for change
Lightning shatters the rain again
Close to nowhere

There Is No Time

There is no Time enough
And there is no time enough
For sour love

Let us be gentle
Against the grain
Why let go
We could decide to change

Let us be gentle
Let's not fight
Be brave
Till the morning light

It might just save the day
'Cause there is no time enough
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
So there is no time enough
For sour love

We're an example
Of opposites attract
It's a known fact
But we love to play the game

We trigger and gamble
We scramble
We pay
Do it anyway
We might just make another day

When there is no time enough
There is no time enough for sour love

Why do we crumble under weight
Maybe the finest of debates
Can help us
Why do we spend each other's days
Picking mine dust
Mind dust
Reminds us

That there is no time
Enough
So there is no time enough
For sour love

Dragon JM

I remember the days before the flood began
When the land of my father spilled its blood
I ran

I throw my flames
In the dark
I cannot control my
Fiery rage
Spitting sparks
Guardian of the goldmine
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
I remember the ways to count my luck on both hands
Now a force has controlled my dawdling life my last chance
And it's watching you
And it wants you out
It's roaring
Inside my mind
And it drives you to madness
And it wants you out
It's roaring
Inside my mind

I throw my flames
In the dark
I cannot control my fiery rage
Gritting sparks
Guardian of the goldmine

I throw my flames
In the dark
I cannot control my
Fiery ways
Flicking sparks
Guardian of the goldmine

I throw my flames
In the dark
I cannot control my fiery rage
Gritting sparks
Guardian of the goldmine

Changing Tides

I'm pulled towards the sea
The great waves rolling towards me
Sucked into the deep
A sailor's grave
Prey to
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Gravity
Don't forget about me
Hey
Don't forget about me

I force against the wind
Fighting
Running for the thrill
Drawing in the sand
Wash away
The burning of your hands

Don't forget about me
Hey
Don't forget about me

How am I supposed to keep up with
The changing tides
When the winter drives us along the frozen seaside
Don't you ever say never again
As you heat the plate
You decide my fate
As a dancing bear

Don't forget about me
Hey
Don't forget about me

I don't often see
A landscape rolling away from me
As a dancing bear

Don't forget about me
Hey
Don't forget about me

Cluster

The Golden Dawn

The traveller's prying like a fox in the rain
The black star sounds sharp when its light is drained
Familiar strokes but delusional reasons galore
Trying to find a revolution worth a war

He's insane
He's insane

He said "hey sweet babe I am the killer of a system that fails"
Scared a girl on a folding bike slipping on the tramway rails
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
He said hey
Don't run away from me
For now you're scattered
But soon you will see

The golden dawn is on its way
We dream, keep dreaming on
The golden dawn is on its way
We keep believing

Some people are thriving
On other's people's pain
Some people are thriving
Where other people fail

What are you waiting for

The golden dawn is on its way
We dream, keep dreaming on
The golden dawn is on its way
Just keep believing oh

The golden dawn is on its way
We dream, keep dreaming on
The golden dawn is on its way
We dream, keep dreaming on

Huntifix

Sixteen traces of you
I return your call
You say "Nowadays most mysteries reach an end"
This new land is not much fun
If I stored you under my bed
Would you stay

Sixteen faces of you
My heart is pressing my throat again
You say "Nowadays is our history's deep end"
This new land is not much fun

My return here will it teach me where I stand
I'm well rested kept my wrought iron shoes on in bed

If I stored you under my bed
Would you lie still
Could I force you to stay attached
No leash you say
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
She's been giving it up
She's been giving it up
There's no God-given chance
She'll stay untouched by his golden hands

She's been giddied all up
Danced herself into trance
She'd been caught up in his golden hands

And the tower was crumbling
Upon Suzy and her greedy thighs
Could the sailor still be wearing her mark
In his right eye

She'd been trying to escape
But her hair was cut short
He couldn't climb
So there's still no reward

And she know it's just a phantom
But her limbs do really hurt
She'd been caught up
In this addictive world

It's been like living on drugs
But it was wearing her out
She's been caught up in this
Golden doubt

Do you really want to go
Do you really want to do this
Do you really want to know
What will happen when we blow this

Do you want to undress me
Do you really want to see
Would you want to caress me
Do you want me, entirely

Could you bear to see me cry
Would you bear with me
Would you love me long-time
Could you see me
Could you see me

Could you live up to my dreams
Would I be able to live up to yours
Do you really wanna hold on
Will it always stay this much fun

Do you want to feel me
Could you bear to need me

Bedroom Dust

He's got an awkward question
It may seem far-fetched
He's quite ashamed but
It needs to be done

He sayd
"Everybody's got a really dark place
I've come to bathe in the light of your face
I know I'm strange to you but
You make me hold on"
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
You may believe I'm looking forward
To bedroom dust
You might think I'm totally bonkers
But you're just the only one I can trust

He says he's never ever gonne be able to tell me
To what point he went through hell with the "record me"
And the safety, the solace and the frail, cool
Sound of my voice

He held on to the one thing nobody told him
You can choose tomorrow
Still
Just one more day to kill
Just one more day to kill

You may believe I'm looking forward
To bedroom dust
You might think I'm totally bonkers
But you're just the only one I can trust

I just wanna thnak you
Thank you

You may believe I'm looking forward
To bedroom dust
You might think I'm totally bonkers
But you're just the only one I still trust

You might think I'm
You may believe I'm looking forward
To bedroom dust
You might think I'm
Only after lust

It's like

It's like bleeding
Without a sight of blood
As if I'm seething inside
Without feeling hot

It's like freezing
Without feeling cold
But I've been told

This is not the way
You're supposed to mourn

As if I'm fighting dragons without feeling brave
As if I'm holding on for dear life
In a freshly dug grave
As if I'm looking for shelter in an open space
It's a lifetime's work

Like knotting
King-size ned sheets out of lace

It's a sweet kind of loneliness
'Cause you're still here
To feel your way out of the darkness
'Cause the light's too clear
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
It's like running till exhaustion
Without the runner's high
While shedding bitter tears
Without ever being gratified

It's like being strangled by the softest of hands
Like being hanged by the ankles
On elastic bands
As if I'm waiting
For an everlasting day to end
It's like the bends
I'm being blown from the inside
Till I'm burst and spent

We gravitate

Speak low
In the softest of lights

Move slowly
Find your own pace
Your own time

We graduate
Procrastinate

Don't go
Where you don't belong
Don't know
What you might find
Beyond

I welcome change
But need to rearrange

We gravitate
We grow
With the turns of our lives
It shows
We're the wondering kind
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
We gravitate
We navigate
We gravitate
Procrastinate

Road to nowhere

Living in someone else's shoes
Nothing I say
Can help you
Can't you take care of yourself
I wonder if doubt left you so helpless

Road to nowhere
The choking
Sure hope the road don't come to own me

Road to nowhere
The choking
Sure hope the road don't come to own me

Wallow in someone else's blues
Caring too much
For past news
Can't you discard your regrets
I wonder if life rewards repentance
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Road to nowhere
The choking
Sure hope the road don't come to own me

Road to nowhere
The choking
Sure hope the road don't come to own me

Road to nowhere
Road to nowhere
Road to nowhere
The choking
Sure hope the road don't come to own me
To own me

Sovereign

I
Who holds
Love in my hands
Engrave your bones
To make sure
Your love will be
Unwavering
For all time

My senses move and grow against the wall

Why extend
What's wrong and wry

There's no excuse
I take the blame
And I just play
It's all great
Let the doves soar away
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Have never enough
Time to spare
Shy
In the dark
To make sure my love

Won't
Be wavered
By desire

There's no excuse
I'm sovereign
I chose to play
Now it's getting grim
Let the dogs do me in

Monkey

Hand in hand
We travel the land
The wide green grass
It's the summer of our lives

And shadows
In bloom
The years roll and mill
The armour and violins

My hopes, my will
Four hundred
Years of laughter
And ardent fighting

I heard the rain
Sing
My name
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Hand in hand
We travel the land
The wide green grass
It's the summer of our lives
With shadows
In bloom

The years roll and mill
The armour and violins

My hopes, my will
Four hundred years of laughter and
Ardent fighting

I heard the rain
Sing
My name
Thy name
My name

18 nicotene

( Sing Song Sally EP )

Eighteen nicotene teeth are brown
Brush them up at you, as I frown
And the two pounds of weight she put on

Sweet sixteen she burns her candles
Waiting with her birthday cake
She thinks no one is gonna come

She says she leaves down drowning on a sea of tears
And she waves with her eyes but she can't lose her fears
Cause something always happens but you don't know when
She thinks if it's late again

So she turns around fate
She turns around fate
She turns around fate all night

Mirror up mirror oh who the hell
Stands before you is she well
She spies on her face
But then she counts down
She smashes the cake with the candle curls to the wall

Twelve 'o clock this midnight hour
Honestly well become her best
As she suddenly hears the bell ring

She says sometimes pal I got a waist to tell on
And I leave you drowning on the summer tree
So I go I'm afraid that you can't follow me
Cause something always happens but you never show when
So I guess I'll go because it's time then

So she turns around fate
She turns around fate
She turns around fate all night

*** Thanx a lot to Mansize for this one ***

Anytime you leave

If you say no
Say you go
And I will do so
Anytime you leave

Any wiser
I couldn't take it
I will uhuh hu
I will die from greed

Anytime you leave
Ah ah ah ah…
Anytime you leave
Ah ah ah ah…

If you say I
And
You do try
To forget you
I will treat you mean

Practise voodoo on you
And your latest lady
That's what you'll receive
Anytime you leave

Ah ah ah ah…
Anytime you leave
Ah ah ah ah…
Anytime you leave
Ah ah ah ah…

I wil set your house on fire
Drown your clothes
And crush your cds

I wont leave you
(rest) in peace
‘cause I believe that's
What you really need

Anytime you leave
Ah ah ah ah…
Anytime you leave
Ah ah ah ah…
Anytime you leave
Ah ah ah ah…

Hey, I warn you
I wont be ashamed to ask you aching
Why you have to leave
Anytime you leave
Why you make me bleed
Anytime you leave
You should leave for good
Why you're coming back
Stay away from me
If you ever leave
You should leave for good
Will you leave me be
Anytime you leave

Are friends electric

It's cold outside
And the paint's peeling off of my walls
There's a man outside
In a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette

Now the light fades out
And I'm wondering what I'm doing in a room like this
There's a knock on the door
And just for a second I thought I remembered you

You know I hate to ask
But are friends electric

So I open the door
it's the 'friend' that I'd left in the hallway
I said "Please sit down"
A candle lit a shadow on a wall near the bed

You know I hate to ask
But are friends electric
Only mine broke down
Down, down, down, down
And now I've no one to love

You know I hate to ask
But are friends electric

Broken

I'm broken
All over
Mean daylight
While sleeping
While sleeping

Ding dong wishing/with a ship(?), nobody's going away
I'm heading where storm lays its head
Ding dong wishing/with a ship(?), going down staying aware
I'm heading where the storm lays its head

I'm broken
All over
Mean daylight
While sleeping
While sleeping

Ding dong wishing/with a ship(?), nobody's going away
I'm heading where storm lays its head
Ding dong wishing/with a ship(?), going down staying aware
I'm heading where the storm lays its head

I'm broken
All over
I'm broken
All over

No time to precociously decide of functions
For I, a huge mountain to climb but to fall 'til
The daylight leaves the dark behind
Shameless intercourse of mine

And there's no hurting this time of your for I cannot be
Caught because I go faster than wind blows
The daylight leaves the dark behind
Shameless intercourse of mine

I'm broken, I'm broken
I'm broken, I'm broken
I'm broken, I'm broken
I'm broken, I'm broken
I'm broken, I'm broken

Build a better life

Build a better life near the Hot Hoods
Buy a new suit matching your Revived Mood
Find yourself some New Friends
And this will depend
On the kind of money and the lack of Time You Don't Spend
A relative success, you become obsessed
Watch what people say and then your Private Life is a Mess
But don't give up
Unless you do stop
Drop the conversation causing awkward situations
If not, you can come back if you want
That is if you want
That is if you want

I'm a Toasty Girl of a Strong Race
I can't help it if I throw it all in your Face
One more thing
I don't tend to ring to Snobbish inhabitants of Mordernista Buildings
I caught a slight disease, Freezy Breeze
I pull the Poker Face and look into the sun till I sneeze
Don't you ever give up unless I do stop
Drop conversation causing awkward situations
Knock knock
Knock knock
Can I come back?
No, you can't
That is if you want
That is if you want

You always whine about My True Me
You are your Parents
You've to work for other ones to be
Come on what's up with you Cool Heroes
Seem to suffer slightly when I strike your Egos
But then I only recall what sounds well
Start to think that I better ring someone to be help
A coffee cup
And now it's enough
Drop the conversation causing awkward situations
Knock knock
Knock knock
Do you wanna come back?
No, you can't
That is if you want
That is if you want
That is if you want

*** Thanx a lot to Mansize for this one ***

C'est comme ça

( Rita Mitsouko Cover / Live )

C'est comme ça
Ah, la la la la
Ouais le secret ça coupe et ça donne
Oh, oh, faut que j'moove
Sans fin du venin
Qui me fait mal au cœur

Quand le serpent chaloupe et console
Oh, oh, faut que j'moove
L'ami Sadi s'enlise
Et là ça fait peur

Si c'est ça
Ah la la la la

Ça le susurre à mes entournures
Ah, ah, faut que j'moove
Ça le grince juste pendant la nuit

Ah, c'est comme ça ça plonge et ça vire
Ah, ah, faut que j'moove
Et ça gêne quoi, quand y a pas de plaisir

C'est comme ça
Ah la la la la la
La lala lala lala lalala...

Je ne veux pas t'abandonner, mon bébé
Je neveux pas nous achever, tu sais
Oh c'est pas que je veuille tenir
Ni que je veuille m'enfuir
Il me faut prendre le frais, c'est vrai
Hé, hé, hé

Hé, viens près de moi que je te le dise
Faut que j'moove
Ce secret qui me tord le cœur
Ah, la la la...

Coeur Blessé

( Petula Clark Cover )

Cœur blessé, torturé
Par tout le mal que tu m'as fait
Au fond c'était perdu d'avance
Il ne reste aucune chance
Alors adieu moi je m'en vais

J'ai le cœur blessé
A tout jamais

Il y a de quoi vous rendre fou
Quand on a tout perdu d'un coup
Adieu je m'en vais le cœur gros
Il faut croire que c'était trop beau

Cœur blessé, torturé
Par tout le mal que tu m'as fait
Rien ne pourra calmer ma peine
Je sais, quoi qu'il advienne,
Je ne pourrai plus t'oublier

J'ai le cœur blessé
A tout jamais...

Gimme Shelter

( The Rolling Stones Cover / Live Radio 1 Stones Session 2013 )

Oh, a storm is threat'ning
My very life today
If I don't get some shelter
Yeah, I'm gonna fade away

War, war, war, war

Oh, the fire is sweeping
Our very street today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost its way

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

The floods is threat'ning
My very life today
Gimme, gimme, gimme shelter
Or I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Shot away, shot away

It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Shot away, shot away

I say, love, sister, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Love, sister, it's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away

It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

I say, love, sister, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

Hi

He said hi, he said, how do you do?
I say, you don't care so why do you ask?
He said, jesus what's wrong with you?
I said, the mood is on fire
He said, I only try to be polite
I said you should have come before
He said, hey lets start all over again, this conversation is getting way out of line
I said, you started it remember?
He said, hey dont bite my nose
I said, I'm sorry!
He said, I only said hi…

I said, yeah, I guess I sometimes overreact
He said, I seem to remember that…
I said, look who's starting it all over again!
He said, oh no we ?????
I said, go fuck your brains Professor Pseudo
He said, I started from here. He said, I said hi

I said, oh baby you still as starring as before
He said, maybe the lady's having a period.
I said whatever next!
I said, and as a matter of fact!
He said, I know you dont think you're overreacting,
And I said, and then another thing, there are different ways of saying hi

So I said hello, I said, how do you do?
He said, fine I'm having a great time!
I said, oh I'm happy for you!
He said what exactly do you mean?
I said, nothing… I only said hi

He said, you're doing it on purpose,
I said, no look my nose is bleeding
He said, okay, let's just presume I believe you
I said, baby cut the crap
He said, baby you're a bitch!
And then I slapped him in the face and I said, go and annoy somebody else,

Il est cinq heures, Paris s'éveille

( Jacques Dutronc Cover / Live )

Je suis l'dauphin d'la place Dauphine
Et la place Blanche a mauvaise mine
Les camions sont pleins de lait
Les balayeurs sont pleins d'balais

Il est cinq heures
Paris s'éveille
Paris s'éveille

Les travestis vont se raser
Les stripteaseuses sont rhabillées
Les traversins sont écrasés
Les amoureux sont fatigués

Il est cinq heures
Paris s'éveille
Paris s'éveille

Le café est dans les tasses
Les cafés nettoient leurs glaces
Et sur le boulevard Montparnasse
La gare n'est plus qu'une carcasse

Il est cinq heures
Paris s'éveille
Paris s'éveille

Les banlieusards sont dans les gares
A la Villette on tranche le lard
Paris by night, regagne les cars
Les boulangers font des bâtards

Il est cinq heures
Paris s'éveille
Paris s'éveille

La tour Eiffel a froid aux pieds
L'Arc de Triomphe est ranimé
Et l'Obélisque est bien dressé
Entre la nuit et la journée

Il est cinq heures
Paris s'éveille
Paris s'éveille

Les journaux sont imprimés
Les ouvriers sont déprimés
Les gens se lèvent, ils sont brimés
C'est l'heure où je vais me coucher

Il est cinq heures
Paris se lève
Il est cinq heures
Je n'ai pas sommeil

Jours Peinards

("Le Tout Nouveau Testament" OST)

Pili Groyne :

Nom de dieu, je prends la route
Loin de mon père amer que je redoute, écoute!
A vrai dire, il aimerait que je me casse la figure
En cherchant l'amour vrai, ouais!
Another copy paste from aotr
J'me suis dit, faut qu'j'me casse
Faut que j'me barre de cette putain d'impasse
Plus sur place!
Je m'envole, sans retour
Je veux danser la farandole et vivre au jour le jour!

Jours peinards, au soleil
Qu'importe les coups de barre je m'emerveille
J'essaye de cueillir l'amour

Ch'ui pas triste
Même si sur ma piste, y a du chagrin
C'est vrai dis, moi je le défis, le destin
Sans limite, je me précipite sur mon chemin d'amour!

Jours peinards, au soleil
Qu'importe les coups de barre je m'émerveille
J'essaye, la belle vie, la bravoure
Car je préfère bruler mes ailes à l'amour
Que vivre dans le noir et jamais voir le jour!

Little Red Riding Hood hit the road

( Robert Wyatt / Cover with Joe Bogaert )

Orlando not tell me, oh no
Don't say oh God
Don't tell me
Oh dear me
Heaven's above
Oh no
I can't stand it
Stop please
Oh deary me
What in heaven's name ?
Oh blimey !
Mercy me
Woe are we
Oh dear
Oh stop it
Stop it

You've been so kind
I know
I know
So why did I hurt you ?
I didn't mean to hurt you
But I'll keep trying
And I'm sure you will too

Ouragan

( Stéphanie de Monaco Cover / Live )

Vision d'orage,
J'voudrais pas qu'tu t'en ailles.
La passion comme une ombre,
Fallait que j'y succombe.
Tu m'enlaçais,
Dans les ruines du vieux Rome.
A part nous, y a personne.
Seul le tonnerre résonne,
M'emprisonne,
Tourbillone.
M'emprisonne,
Tourbillone.

Vision d'image
D'un voyage qui s'achève
Comme une nuit sans rêve,
Une bataille sans trêve,
Cette nuit à Rome.
Ton absence me dévore
Et mon cœur bat trop fort.
Ai-je raison ou tort
De t'aimer tellement fort ?
De t'aimer tellement fort ?

Comme un ouragan
Qui passait sur moi,
L'amour a tout emporté.
T'es restée, l'envie
Et l'accent d'furie
Qu'on ne peut plus arrêter.
Comme un ouragan,
La tempête en moi
A balayé le passé,
Allumé le vice.
C'est un incendie
Qu'on ne peut plus arrêter.

Désir, trahir, maudire, rougir,
Désir, souffrir, mourir, pourquoi ?
On ne dit jamais ces choses là.
Un sentiment secret, d'accord,
Un sentiment qui hurle fort.

Comme un ouragan,
La tempête en moi
A balayé le passé,
Allumé le vice.
C'est un incendie
Qu'on ne peut plus arrêter.
Comme un ouragan
Qui passait sur moi,
L'amour a tout emporté.
T'es restée, l'envie
Et l'accent d'furie
Qu'on ne peut plus arrêter.
Comme un ouragan,
La tempête en moi...

Register

Just another cigarette drowning
Standing on my own in the toilet
Nicotene sunset
Flushing the last down the loo
How did I really get into this?
It's all about forgetting

For I register everything
Ever said by anyone
But sometimes I give in
I like deleting everything

It's only a kind of illusion
Another day another conclusion
It's too messy in my head man
No use of telling me something
I'll remember but one thing
I go mad

For I register everything
Ever said by anyone
But sometimes I give in
I like deleting everything

I'm easy on the outside
Easy every other day
Watching for star sign
Watching every little damned thing falling off
Look at me forever
Look at me for I won't mind
Love me forever
Love me just a little once in a while
Love me just a little once in a while
Just a little of a life time

Register everything
Ever said by anyone
But sometimes I give in
I like deleting everything

I'm boring you to tears
Driving you crazy complaining
Eagerly in all ears
Now is the thing I hear
Head over heels in love with you
Crashed completely dear

For I register everything
Ever said by anyone
But sometimes I give in
I like deleting everything

The days of Pearly Spencer

( David Mac Williams Cover - Live JukeBox Memories - 01-01-2005 )

A tenement, a dirty street
Walked and worn by shoeless feet
Inside it's long and so complete
Watched by a shivering sun

Old eyes in a small child's face
Watching as the shadows race
Through walls and cracks and leave no trace
And daylight's brightness shuns

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

Nose pressed hard on frosted glass
Gazing as the swollen mass
On concrete fields where grows no grass
Stumbles blindly on

Iron trees smother the air
But withering they stand and stare
Through eyes that neither know nor care
Where the grass is gone

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

Pearly where's your milk white skin
What's that stubble on your chin
It's buried in the rot gut gin
You played and lost not won

You played a house that can't be beat
Now look your head's bowed in defeat
You walked too far along the street
Where only rats can run

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

The days of Pearly Spencer
The race is almost run

Try a little tenderness

( Harry Woods Cover / Live JukeBox Memories - 01-01-2005 )

Oh, she may be weary
Young girls they do get weary
Wearing that same old shaggy dress, yes
But when they get weary
Try a little tenderness, oh yeah

You know she's waiting
Just anticipating
Things that she'll never ever ever ever possess, yeah
But all the times that she is without them
Gotta try a little tenderness

Oh but there is one thing
It's not just sentimental, yeah
She has her grief and care
But the words are so soft and gentle
And it makes it easier
Yeah it makes it easier to bear, yeah

Oh you won't regret it
Cause some girls they don't forget it
Cause love is their only happiness, yes
And it's all so easy
Come on and try a little tenderness

You've got to hold her, move,
Just prove your love to her
Make love
And try try try try
Try a little tenderness, tenderness

You've got to hold her, squeeze her
Don't tease her
Make love
Just try, just try, just try
Try a little tenderness, tenderness, oh
You've got to, oh oh yeah, oh oh yeah
You've got to, you've got to, you've got to...
Try a little tenderness, oh oh oh
You've got to, oh yeah, oh yeah
Baby, baby, waouh waouh
Baby, baby, ah ah !

Un beau roman (Une belle histoire)

( Michel Fugain Cover / Live )

C'est un beau roman, c'est une belle histoire
C'est une romance d'aujourd'hui
Il rentrait chez lui, là-haut vers le brouillard
Elle descendait dans le midi, le midi
Ils se sont trouvés au bord du chemin
Sur l'autoroute des vacances
C'était sans doute un jour de chance
Ils avaient le ciel à portée de main
Un cadeau de la providence
Alors pourquoi penser au lendemain

Ils se sont cachés dans un grand champ de blé
Se laissant porter par les courants
Se sont racontés leur vies qui commençaient
Ils n'étaient encore que des enfants, des enfants
Qui s'étaient trouvés au bord du chemin
Sur l'autoroute des vacances
C'était sans doute un jour de chance
Qui cueillirent le ciel au creux de leurs mains
Comme on cueille la providence
Refusant de penser au lendemain

C'est un beau roman, c'est une belle histoire
C'est une romance d'aujourd'hui
Il rentrait chez lui, là-haut vers le brouillard
Elle descendait dans le midi, le midi
Ils se sont quittés au bord du matin
Sur l'autoroute des vacances
C'était fini le jour de chance
Ils reprirent alors chacun leur chemin
Saluèrent la providence en se faisant un signe de la main

Il rentra chez lui, là-haut vers le brouillard
Elle est descendue là-bas dans le midi
C'est un beau roman, c'est une belle histoire
C'est une romance d'aujourd'hui
