B i o g r a p h y
 (by Jon O'Brien)

Inspired by troubadours Lou Reed and Leonard Cohen, old-school musicals and quirky singer/songwriters Björk and Tori Amos, Paris-based Aussie chanteuse Nadeah Miranda has become the go-to girl for French cabaret acts while also pursuing a solo career of her own. Developing a passion for music from a young age, a victory at a school talent contest inspired her to write her own songs, and later, to travel to Europe to seek fame and fortune at the age of 18. While working in a Parisian cafe, she was introduced to guitarist Art Menuteau, and under the guise of the LoveGods, the pair relocated to Brighton, England where they supported Nick Cave on his U.K. tour and released one album, Between Dogs and Wolves before going their separate ways. In 2008, she was invited by Marc Collin to contribute to his '80s film soundtrack's cover project, Hollywood Mon Amour, and to replace Camille & Phoebe Killdeer in the French collective Nouvelle Vague, where she appeared on 2008's 3 with a rendition of Magazine's "Parade" with Barry Adamson. After appearing on B for Bang's The Beatles Rewired project, she began work with Italian composer Nicola Tescari on her own solo material. Self-described as lyrically twisted, dark cabaret pop and featuring the single "Odile," her debut album, Venus Gets Even, was released in 2011.

Venus Gets Even

Odile

My name is Odile
And I am a deep-sea diver
Though I don't get my thrills
From the cat fish in China

I've been a thousand dreams
So many I have dived down
But still I'm all alone

Can't you see it's possible
And oh, oh, oh so probable
And by, by the way, by the way
He must be incredible
Yet oh, oh, oh so bedable
In every, every single way

With a little luck, he'll be home before
The day can turn, can turn to night
With a little luck, I'll be blown away
By my own Mr Right

And I don't wanna fight
No I don't wanna fight
All I want is to love him tonight

Name? Doctor Brown
I am an open heart surgeon
Though under my gown
My blood has been a surging

I've held so many hearts
That seemed to be a yearning
But still I'm all alone

Can't you see it's possible
And oh, oh, oh so probable
And by, by the way, by the way
He must love me and need me
And never deceive me
And make my day every single day

And I don't wanna fight
No I don't wanna fight
All I want is to love him tonight

With a little luck, with a little luck
With a little luck, with a little luck

With a little luck he'll be waiting there for you
Before the day turns into night
With a little luck she'll waltzing right down
Wedding aisles in that virginal white
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
With a little luck he'll be waiting there for you
Before the day turns into night
With a little luck she'll waltzing right down
Wedding aisles in that virginal white...

With a little luck, oh with a little luck...

Suddenly Afternoons

Suddenly afternoons seem much longer
As I ponder
The reason for these five paper maché walls

And suddenly perfect nails seem quite useless
As I undress
For no one but the shower

We wore our love so proud
You wore that smile too loud

And suddenly afternoons make me call out
To those boy scouts
"Be prepared for those sandstorms and cyclones"
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And suddenly I get caught
Hiding in a teacup
You say "stand up, and be the woman I love, again"

We wore our love so proud
You wore that smile too loud

A little time, a little time, a little time
To remember the plan
Look straight ahead, straight ahead, straight ahead
Through that faded tin can

A little time, a little time, a little time
A little time
What was the point my friend
Chicken you run again
Chicken you run

And suddenly all I see is your green raincoat
And that sailboat
And your umbrella that both of us hated to use

Suddenly all those love songs don't seem foolish
And I notice that I'm singing every goddamn word

We wore our love so proud
You wore that smile too loud

Whatever Lovers Say

I come to see you in the market
Where the buyers buy and sell their wares
I want to reach into your apron
Take your hands and save you from this fate

Like to invite you to my lighthouse
Show you boats and woo you like the sailors do
But I can only see you in the marketplace
With a little ring I'll probably never bring to you

We'd watch the early morning street cleaners cleaning streets
With eyes wide awake until the vampires hit their sheets
And we'd find a way to turn the hours into weeks
And then we'd say whatever lovers say
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Want to impress you with my palace
When I make money I'll buy a little place for two
But I just rent a bed-sit here in Paris
Could it be good for a prince like you

We'd watch the early morning street cleaners cleaning streets
With eyes wide awake until the vampires hit their sheets
And we'd find a way to turn the hours into weeks
And then we'd say whatever lovers say

We'd live a longer life than candles
That everybody buys
At local discount stores

We'd watch the early morning street cleaners cleaning streets
With eyes wide awake until the vampires hit their sheets
And we'd find a way to turn the hours into weeks
And then we'd say whatever lovers say

At the Moment

While living out the boot of my hire car
I drove across the ocean of a charcoaled heart
Freefalling from the edge of a packet of 10ml nitrazepam pills
I guess I misplaced my taste for survival skills

Sat thinking 'bout the ways of suicide
And how lovely it would be to take that ride
Right here with a bottle of wine and that pack of nitrazepam pills
Till I saw my messiah rolling down them hills
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And then he was telling me that our love
Was something from above
And something I could hardly see
A love not held by space or time
A love that was divine
A love that I could hold and keep

Hey Girl would care to rescue me
I think I'm kinda busy can't you see
Well what about tomorrow maybe
We could have us a breakfast for three
He seemed kinda strange and yet I just agreed

And then he was telling me that our love
Was something from above
And something I could hardly see
A love not held by space or time
A love that was divine
A love that I could hold and keep

And so I decided to give love a try
But I didn't even get one night of teenage kicking highs
Instead I got the laptop, the car and that pack of nitrazepam pills
Stolen by a pseudo-punk-messiah rolling down them hills

An Asylum on New Year's Eve

An asylum on New Year's Eve is not quite what you hoped for
But you got one and they stuck it on your record for free
Confiscated your new guitar kept it safe behind the matron's bar
So you sat in the courtyard singing songs by Jeff Buckley
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
"Why am I in here?" I ask the nurse
"Provocative clothing and your star-spangled words
Refusing medication, when we tried our very best to help you"

An asylum on New Year's Eve, number 24 looks at me knowingly
Says "Involuntary?" "Yes" I say with pride "Well take some good advice"
"Beyond these walls a thousand eyes are watching you for your sweet demise
Do what they say and be precise"

It's mystery, mystery, mystery, mystery
It's mystery, mystery, mystery, mystery

"Why am I here" I ask the nurse
"Provocative clothing and your star spangled words
Refusing medication, when we tried our very best to help you"

"Threatening the doctors, they were terrified
Through you said nothing they all saw it in your eyes
Refusing medication when they tried their very best to help you"

Tell me

And tell me
Was it like they told you
All the movie stars
With their hand me down charms

And tell me
Did you walk outside
And make daisy chains
With their cold business cards

While the road had to wait
Red carpets, don't be late
So find yourself
At a railroad station
In a backstage bar
In a hotel waiting
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And tell me
That you're making something
Beautiful
With that second hand heart
And tell me
That you'll try to remember
When all the lights
Grow far too loud

While the road had to wait
Red carpets, don't be late
So find yourself
At a railroad station
In a backstage bar
In a hotel waiting

It's in your hands
This romance
It's in your hands
This romance

It's in your hands
This romance
It's in your hands
This romance

So find yourself
In a railroad station
In a backstage bar
In a hotel waiting

Scary Carol

I was walking through the green, green grass just minding my own affairs
When I came across a bright green ever hungry polar bear
He took me by my empty hand and took me with his stare
And then we started dancing in the howling midnight air

We keep on pushing, we keep on rushing, oh
Out of the darkness, out of the madness
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
He drove me to a city bright with shiny city lights
And I was blinded by the gleam and all them promised heights
Each window danced before me like sweet girls in underwear
There was nothing I could do, I'd walked into his lair

He pointed out some shiny boots he knew would fit me fine
And I could barely keep myself from screaming "how sublime"
High heeled, black, up to my knees just how I like em yeah
He knew just what'd fit me, he knew just what I'd wear

We keep on pushing, we keep on rushing, oh
Out of the darkness, out of the madness
Oops shiny lady, oops shiny lady
Oops shiny lady, oops shiny lady
Oops shiny lady, oops shiny lady
Oops shiny lady

And sure enough they fit me fine just like he said they would
And I felt like a queen divine just like I knew I would
But the price I paid was all I had and all I ever was
I lost myself amidst the greed-filled, howling midnight fog

So next time you meet a bright-green ever hungry polar bear
Don't dance with him, don't shake his hand, don't meet his hungry stare
He'll only lead you way astray and far from who you are
So don't get fooled by shiny boots or get in strange bear's cars

He bit me hard, he bit me deep, he bit me to the bone
Was like I blinked and then somehow I lost my way back home
I've paid my price, I've paid my dues and now I stand here telling you
Don't dance with bright green polar bears they only lead to deep despair

We keep on pushing, we keep on rushing, oh
Out of the darkness, out of the madness, oh
We keep on pushing, we keep on rushing, oh
Out of the darkness, out of the madness, oh

Oops shiny lady, oops shiny lady
Oops shiny lady, oops shiny lady
Oops shiny lady, oops shiny lady
Oops shiny lady, oops shiny lady...

You better not pout
You better not cry
You better not shout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

Hurricane Katrina

Two by two we're living sober
Hands behind our backs
With no care for the hurricanes
Or hairline cracks

Though we don't live near New Orleans
I can feel the winds
On the fifth floor of anywhere
We've ever been

But rainy Wednesdays
Don't quite seem right
Without you

But rainy Wednesdays
Don't quite seem right
Without you

Taking time
But never seeing
Eye to eye to eye
And I get scared by the thunderstorms
That tear you up
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Slowly, slowly you disarm me
I can take it yeah
We're not searching for goldmines
Just some tandem stairs

But rainy Wednesdays
Don't quite seem right
Without you

But rainy Wednesdays
Don't quite seem right
Without you

Two by two, we can walk
Four by four, we both talk
Out of plans, out of faith
No one knows the way back

Two by two, we both lie
Four by four, skinned alive
Out of plans, out of faith
One more hurricane

Two by two, we both run
Four by four, spinning guns
Out of plans, out of faith
One more hurricane

Two by two, we both lie
Four by four, skinned alive
Out of plans, out of faith
No one knows the way back

Song I Just Wrote

Got me a prescription for perfect living
But I lost it on the breeze
So I ran down to the crossroads winter stinging
And I tried my very best just to breathe

Now I know it's not the way
That it was meant to be
But right now I don't think I can see
Would you lend me your eyes for a little while
So I might remember how to smile
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Got me a friend named Peg, she taught me knitting
Gonna knit me a new man
And even though, I don't know his perfect fitting
Well I'm sure he'll understand

Now I know it's not the way
That it was meant to be
But right now I don't think I can see
So would you lend me your eyes for a little while
So I might remember how to smile

Does everybody feel like this sometimes
Where every word they say, sounds like recycled rhymes
And contrived and out of date, it's nothing new
But it's all I've got to say to you

I stare at the right side of my double-bed
Books and medicines instead of you
And you know, yeah you know
Cannonballs hit hard when you're not sleeping
And time takes time, it's true

Now I know it's not the way
That it was meant to be
But right now I don't think can see
So would you lend me your eyes for a little while
So I might remember how to be

I Burned a Cowboy at the Melbourne Airport

I burned a cowboy at the Melbourne airport
He said he didn't mind because he was terribly bored
He struck a light, held a whiskey on high and said 'pour'
Oh I burned a cowboy at the Melbourne airport

Why nobody believed me
Why nobody believed me
Why no, Sir
Why nobody believed me
Why nobody believed me

Oh no, Sir
I did not think about the law, Sir
I did not realise that this could be a felony
Oh no, oh uh, oh uh

I found an angel at the Melbourne airport
He wore disguise looked like any old guy to be sure
Told me to light that dear cowboy of mine
So I burned him alive, he was scorched
Cheers to the angel at the Melbourne airport
What's become of him, my little runaway
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Why nobody believed me
Why nobody believed me
Why no, Sir
Why nobody believed me
Why nobody believed me

Oh no, Sir
I did not think about the law, Sir
I did not realise that this could be a felony
Oh no, Sir
I did not mean to do it, no Sir
I did not mean to take his life away
And now I'm all alone

Even Quadriplegics Get the Blues

Even quadriplegics get the blues sometimes
I don't mean to talk about it
When they're lying there alone at night
Not quite breathing

Even quadriplegics get the blues sometimes
You can be almost certain
All the suction in the world won't make it fine

I've been sitting in an empty room
Trying to make sense of what's happening to you
I've been wishing on retired stars
Just breathing

Won't you hold me in your arms, please
Don't you cry now, don't you cry out
Hold my hand and hear my heart speak
You can't hold me, you can't hold me
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Even quadriplegics get the blues sometimes
You can be so sure about it
All the movies in the world won't pass the time

And even quadriplegics get the blues sometimes
It's hardly surprising
All the doctors in the world can't make it right, this time

I've been sitting on an empty bed
Trying to remember the pretty words you said
I've been wishing on retired stars
Just breathing

Won't you hold me in your arms, please
Don't you cry now, don't you cry now
Hold my hand and hear my heart speak
You can't hold me, you can't hold me

Pinot Noir And Poetry For Breakfast

I drink pinot noir and poetry for my breakfast
And I eat little girls in perfect pearls for my breakfast
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And if the boys don't like it
I couldn't care a less for what they say
Because Baudelaire and Fred Astaire
They was all cooking poetry

I don't do toast and jam
No toast and jam for my breakfast
I don't do eggs and ham
No eggs and ham for my breakfast

You see because
J'aime les jolies filles
Autour de mon lit comme petit dej
Et je bois le pinot noir
Et de la poésie comme petit dej

And if the boys don't like it
I couldn't care a less for what they say
Because Baudelaire and Fred Astaire
They was all, oh they was all cooking poetry
Oh yeah

And if the boys don't like it
I couldn't care a less for what they say
Because Baudelaire and Fred Astaire
They was all, oh they was all cooking poetry

Met a Man (Radio Edit)

Met a man with a crack pipe and a gun in his hand, in his hand
What a scene but it seems to me he's done all he can, all he can
All he knows is the dragon's throat and the master plan, master plan

So I followed him down
Followed him down
Followed him down

Knuckle white in the dead of the night no place to run, place to run
Yellow past, no surprise, he'd been having no fun, having no fun
Tunnel vision down a rabbit hole, well it's all he knows, all he knows

Still I followed him down
Followed him down
Followed him down

Still I followed him down
Followed him down
Followed him down
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Gun starts, but it starts again but he want it to end, want it to end
Need relief from a heavy grief but I'm at it again, at it again
Misery, she smiles for free, as you set yourself by her side

Still I followed him down
Followed him down
Followed him down

Still I followed him down
Followed him down
Followed him down

Still I followed him down
Followed him down
Still I followed him down
Followed him down

Still I followed him down
Followed him down
Still I followed him down
Followed him down, followed him down

Met a man with a crack pipe and a gun
Met a man with a crack pipe and a gun
Met a man with a crack pipe and a gun

Still I followed him down
Followed him down
Followed him down

One Way Lie

High pitched wake up
A two tonne shake up
You catch me by surprise
What I find dear boy
Is that I never knew you at all

You turn my white to black
Like a heart attack
I try not to fall apart
But the truth of the matter is
A broken heart

You know my heart starts trembling babe
When I think of it
And all the times you could have let me know
Keep it to yourself, honey that's no lie

You know my heart starts trembling babe
When I think of it
And all the times you could have let me go
Keep it to yourself, this one way lie

Been stripped of a heaven
That once was a given
I'm broken by this ride
You know that I ain't showing the world
I got far too much pride

And so I wake up, make up
Slap on a smile
Boy you'll never see me cry
Because the truth of the matter is
You're just some guy

You know my heart starts trembling babe
When I think of it
And all the times you could have let me know
Keep it to yourself, honey that's no lie
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
You know my heart starts trembling babe
When I think of it
And all the times you could have let me go
Keep it to yourself, this one way lie

You know my heart starts trembling babe
When I think of it
And all the times you could have let me know
Keep it to yourself, honey that's no lie

You know my heart starts trembling babe
When I think of it
And all the times you could have let me go
Keep it to yourself, this one way lie

You know my heart starts
Oh when I think of it
And all the times you could have let me know
Keep it to yourself, honey that's no lie
You know my heart starts trembling babe
When I think of it
And keep it to yourself, this one way lie

Ordinary Colours

Hear me out before you walk out
Don't be who you are, don't be proud
Frowning angel, you're not listening
Only reaching for the next thing

How can we
Be here again I'm sorry
I thought that
You'd want more than these ordinary

Stand before you, fall to pieces
Tell you what I think, it's useless
I see nothing, only darkness
Lying through your teeth, the clock ticks

How can we
Be here in spite of all these tears
I cry, diluting ordinary colours

Tie you over, drag me under
I see nothing of who you were
Skeletons and paper armour
Wake me up when this is over
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
How can we
Be here again I'm sorry
I thought that
You'd want more than these ordinary

Thought that you
Were out of it forever
This time
Your God's become these ordinary
Colours, colours

How can we
Be here again I'm sorry
I thought that
You'd want more than these ordinary

Help me now
For I'm not strong
You know I did best
To swim against these ordinary 
Colours, colours
Colours, colours
Colours, colours
Colours

Kansas

Hiding away from another fine day
I got nothing to do or say
Sit here mending my heart
Which plain fell apart after midnight

But sorry it seems you got caught in this web
But I'm done Tip-toeing around you
'Cause it's tearing you apart
And it's turning me bad
To be loved by you

Instead of breaking my bones
You know you're breaking my heart
With a silence that stings like a viper
Though I'm not down on my knees
I'm begging you pretty please
'Cause I'm a long long way from

Funny the way things they never quite go
The way you think they should
Still I keep my head high
Do my best to get by
That's the truth
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I look at the floor as you stare at the walls
My God, things shouldn't be this way
Though we both know it's gone still were trying to hang on
But the love is dead

Instead of breaking my bones
You know you're breaking my heart
With a silence that stings like a viper
Though I'm not down on my knees
I'm begging you pretty please
I'm a long long way from Kansas

Though there's no whip in your hand
I feel the wound on my back
With a silence that stings like a viper
Though I'm not down on my knees
I'm begging you pretty please
I'm a long long way from
'Cause I'm a long long way from
Yeah, I'm a long long way
Yeah, I'm a long long way from here

Unknow

Bored
Get out of here
When we dance
No one dares
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Summer's gone
From this place
Do not stay
Come seek your grace

I said go
Be on your way
Though these arms cry
I walk away

And I
Will follow you
Dig my own tracks
In search of truth

And try
To forget
To unknow
Such sweet regret

And I said go
Be on your way
Though this heart cries
Walk away

And we'll ride
Out of here
Cause no one knows
Just where I've been

And try
To forget
To unknow
Such sweet regret

I said go
Be on your way
Though this heart cries
I walk away

Run

All the stones and papers in a pile
On your bookshelf say
Stay away 'cause I ain't got the space or time

Broken glasses, windows never clean
Your safety belt
So let us walk down to the river
Take a night stroll by the water
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
And then you run
And still you run

Plastic bags are splitting out the seams of fading cupboards
Lego blocks all packed up in a box
So what you're building now
Now that we are standing at the edge will you retreat
Or come and walk out on the water
It's not that hard please remember

And then you run
And still you run

And though the seeds of change they start to call your name
And what will it take boy for you to be a man
What are you fighting for, do you run just 'cause you can

Heavy as you wake up in the morning
What's your story
Summertime just don't feel like she used to do
Whistle, smile, pretending that you're fine
But I see through
And will you hold on forever
Waiting for perfect weather

And then you run
And still you run

And though the seeds of change they start to call your name
And what will it take boy for you to be a man
What are you fighting for, do you run just 'cause you can

Darling

With all the love in the world we couldn't make it work
With all the love in the world we couldn't make it worse
Though we tried to believe we never seemed to learn

With stars in our eyes no one could foresee us getting burned
We shot arrows in the sky hoping we wouldn't get hurt
But the truth of the matter is said and done
The truth of the matter is no one won, my love

You know, darling, darling can't you see the light
With your back turned to the sun I'm not surprised
You know, darling, darling can't you see the light
With your back turned on our love you're black as night, night, night

When the black cats crawled out we laughed at the thought of bad luck
We danced under ladders, two diamonds both caught in the rough
But the truth of the matter is we both ran
Far from the love we could have shared my love
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
You know, darling, darling can't you see the light
With your back turned to the sun I'm not surprised
You know, darling, darling can't you see the light
With your back turned on our love you're black as night, night, night

Je t'aime, mon amour
Pour toujours, mon amour
Je suis incomplète sans toi
Et on est fait l'un pour l'autre
Et c'est pour toujours, mon amour
C'est pour toujours
I love you, my love
Forever, my love
I'm incomplete without you
And we are made for each other
And it's forever, my love
It is forever

You know, darling, darling can't you see the light
With your back turned to the sun I'm not surprised
You know, darling, darling can't you see the light
With your back turned on our love you're black as night, night, night

Get Out Of Your Head

I'm not saying that I know all of the answers
To the problems and feelings that hold you down
And I'm not asking you the reason why baby

'Cause you'll never know and knowing won't fix it somehow
Don't you see the only enemy is in your head
Find a better way don't listen to a word they've said

Get out of your head and make it right
Get out of the way and see the sky
Get into your heart and start to find a better way

Get up on your bike and start to ride
Get up on the wind you will be fine
Get up on this day then make it beautiful my love

In my opinion you are perfectly whole
But my opinion's my opinion, it don't mean a thing
I'm not letting up and letting you fall down
Don't know why but you got me I don't need a ring

I'm not saying that you're ready but I know you are
Step aside and you'll arrive, you know it's not that hard

Get out of your head and make it right
Get out of the way and see the sky
Get into your heart then start to find a better way

Get up on your bike and start to ride
Get up on the wind you will be fine
Get up on this day and make it beautiful my love
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I'm not asking you to stay with me another night
I'm not asking you to love me babe or hold me tight
I'm not saying we're forever and a day
Come on baby

Get out of your head and make it right
Get out of the way and see the sky
Get into your heart and start to find a better way

Get up on your bike and start to ride
Get up on the wind you will be fine
Get up on this day and make it beautiful my love

She Said

She said, 'I'm falling I'd like to get out of this bed'
And she said, 'I'm waiting for something that you've never said'
And light up the candle and watch till it burns to the floor
Wait up you're moving so fast I can't see you no more, more

You've paid fortunes got nothing to show
I knew you'd find out
But the truth it doesn't hurt when it's done right
And I could drag it out or have it done tonight
She says, 'What would you know about right?'

He said, 'I'm longing to see us just get through this day'
She said, 'I like you much better when you're far away
And I ride a bike with such grace when both my hands are tied'
He said 'I'm longing to help you get out of this bind, bind'
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Do you want my body tonight
If so please go slow
'Cause the truth it doesn't hurt when it's done right
And I could drag it out or have it done tonight
She says, 'What would you know about right?'

She said, 'I'm longing to tell you what you don't wanna know'
He said, 'We never go dancing perhaps I should go?'
Then she writes the letter that makes it all better, I call
She says, 'I live at the top that's the 40th floor, floor'

Jump off we'll get sore feet you know
No pain, no gain right
'Cause the truth it doesn't hurt when it's done right
And I could drag it out or have it done tonight
She says, 'What would you know about right?'

RH Jam

Step by step I'll meet you
At the crossroads one more time
So don't be late

And hitch your pretty little skirt up
Though your wearing pants
Please take the chance

And tell me, finally
What you think about the master plan
Just take my hand

You will be fine
You will be fine
You will be fine

One day you'll be sorry
Reaching for that pack of Kleenex
I'll place my bets
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Brick by brick
But don't go
Wasting time
'Cause taking time's a waste of time

You will be fine
You will be fine
You will be fine

Someday you will pass them by no longer on your knees
And say
It's my time

You will be fine
You will be fine
You will be fine

You will be fine
You will be fine
You will be fine
You will be fine

Pocketful of holes

Who can tell me where my baby lays
And who could tell the stars far from the sky
And who could be the one who would forget the things I've done
Yes who could tell the stars from the rain

Pocketful of holes is where I've been
Pocketful of holes is where I've been
The two of us between the colours of life
And I confess we're two of a kind
I long to see you sleeping in the night

The two of us between the colours of life
And I confess we're two of a kind
I long to see you sleeping in the night
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Who can be at the edge of the stream
Oh it's a marvellous night
For you and me
Who can be my dancing queen this time
But if you terrify me in the sweetest way
You will never see what could have been
And I would hold you gently in the night

Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)

( Christopher Cross - Hollywood mon amour LP )

Once in your life you'll find her
Someone who turns your heart around
Next thing you know
You're closing down the town

Wake up and it's still with you
Even though you left her way across town
Wondering to yourself
Hey what have I found

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it's crazy but it's true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do
The best that you can do is fall in love
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Arthur he does what he pleases
All of his life his master's charms
Deep in his heart
He's just he's just a boy

Livin' his life one day at a time
Showing himself a really good time
Laughing about the way
They want him to be

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it's crazy but it's true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do
The best that you can do is fall in love

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it's crazy but it's true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do
The best that you can do is fall in love

Exterminateur

( Odile EP )

J'ai des animaux dans ma petite tête
Des petites bêtes, des petites bêtes
Tu me demandes quel type, quel type
Je sais pas, je regrette, je regrette

Peut-être qu'elles sont énormes et laides
Peut-être qu'elles sont toutes comme ça
La seule chose que je sais c'est la couleur de leurs pattes
Elle gratte, elle gratte, elle gratte

Peut-être qu'elles sont génériques
Peut-être que je suis très sale
Peut-être que les bêtes elles ont ??? de me faire du mal
Peut-être c'est elles qui glissent
Peut-être je ne suis plus
La seule chose que je sais c'est la couleur de leurs pattes
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Je vais appeler l'exterminateur
Il va savoir comment faire
Si il arrive à les tuer
Oh peut-être que je penserais
Peut-être je penserais tout bas

Ces animaux dans ma petite tête
Des petites bêtes, des petites bêtes
Tu me demandes d'où est ce qu'elle vient
C'est toi qui me les aies données peut-être
Ou alors c'est un mauvais mec ou même l'air du métro
La seule chose que je sais c'est la couleur de ma peau

Je vais appeler l'exterminateur
Il va savoir comment faire
Si il arrive à les tuer
Oh peut-être que je penserais
Peut-être je penserais tout bas

Je vais appeler l'exterminateur
Il va savoir comment faire
Si il arrive à les tuer
Oh peut-être que je penserais
Peut-être je penserais tout bas

Forbidden Colours

( David Sylvian - Hollywood mon amour LP )

The wounds on your hands never seem to heal
I thought all I needed was to believe

Here am I, a lifetime away from you
The blood of Christ, or the beat of my heart
My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes

Senseless years thunder by
Millions are willing to give their lives for you
Does nothing live on

Learning to cope with feelings aroused in me
My hands in the soil, buried inside of myself
My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes in you once again
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I'll go walking in circles
While doubting the very ground beneath me
Trying to show unquestioning faith in everything
Here am I, a lifetime away from you
The blood of Christ, or a change of my heart

My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes
My love wears forbidden colours
My life believes in you once again

Friendly Fire

There's a friendly fire in the Gaza Strip
Missiles flying high in the Gaza strip
Babies in a pile in the Gaza Strip
But don't you worry about it

It's the way it's supposed to be
A long way from you and me in Tennessee
And the back porch don't mind
All them people turning blind
'Cause molasses makes the masses so
Homogenised
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
There's a friendly fire in the Gaza Strip
Missiles flying high in the Gaza strip
Babies in a pile in the Gaza Strip
But don't you worry about it

Get A Grip On Yourself

( The Stranglers Cover / Nouvelel Vague )

Nadeah Miranda :

Didn't have the money round to buy a Morry Thou
I've been around and seen a lot to shake me anyhow
I'm begged and borrowed sometimes I admit I even stole
But the worst crime that I ever did was play some rock and roll

But the money's not good
So just get a grip on yourself
I said the money's not good
Ah so just get a grip on yourself

You know I've been suffering convictions on a two-way stretch inside
The air in here is pretty thin, I think I'll go outside
Commited for insanity and crimes against the soul
Oh the worst crime that I ever did was play some rock and roll
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
But the money's not good
So just get a grip on yourself
I said the money's not good
Oh so just get a grip on yourself
And you should know

Grip on yourself
Just get a grip on yourself
Grip on yourself

Now I find from week to week the sentence sticking fast
Turn the corner, rub my eyes and hope the world will last
Stranger from another planet welcome to our hole
Just strap on your guitar and we'll play some rock and roll

But the money's not good
So just get a grip on yourself
I said the money's not good
Ah so just get a grip on yourself
And you should know

Grip on yourself
Grip on yourself
Just get a grip on yourself...

Oublions L'Amérique

( Wunderbach Cover / Nouvelle Vague )

Nadeah Miranda :

Oublions l'Amérique et son Coca-Cola
Son président fasciste et son impérialisme
T'as pris tout ce qu'il y avait de bon là-bas en Amérique
Marylin, le rock, la cocaïne et les sodas

Et moi je veux voir leurs missiles atomiques
Leurs danses, de leur disco, et leurs putains d'ordinateurs
John Wayne était un faf qui chassait les sorcières
Fini le rodéo, la danse du scalp, vive le pogo
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oublions l'Amérique, oublions l'Amérique
Oublions l'Amérique, oublions l'Amérique

Oublions l'Amérique contre les fanatiques
Fini les bons ricains contre les méchants rouges
Bien sûr il y a Cuba et puis l'Afghanistan
Mais ils ont aussi la Chine et puis le Vietnam

Oublions l'Amérique, oublions l'Amérique
Oublions l'Amérique, oublions l'Amérique

Oublions l'Amérique, oublions l'Amérique
Oublions l'Amérique, oublions l'Amérique

Parade

( Magazine cover / Nouvelle Vague )

Nadeah Miranda et Barry Adamson :

They will show me what I want to see
We will watch without grief
We stay one step ahead of relief
You tell me that we've been praying
For a bright and clever hell
I think we've been forced to our knees
But I can't tell

Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position
Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
It's so hot in here
What are they trying to hatch
We must not be frail, we must watch
Now that I'm out of touch with anger
Now I have nothing to live up to
I don't know when to stop joking
When I stop I hope I am with you

Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position
Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position

What on earth is the size of my life

Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position
Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position

And my position is omewhere between a waitress and this table

So Lonely

( The Police cover / Nouvelle Vague )

Nadeah Miranda :


Well, someone told me yesterday
That when you throw your love away
You act as if you just don't care
You look as if you're going somewhere

But I just can't convince myself
I couldn't live with no one else
And I can only play that part
And sit and nurse my broken heart
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely

Now no one's knocked upon my door
For a thousand years or more
All made up and nowhere to go
Oh welcome to this one man show

Just take a seat, they're always free
Oh no surprise, no mystery
In this theatre that I call my soul
I always play the starring role
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely

So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely

So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely

So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely

Together in Electric Dreams

( Philip Oakey - Hollywood mon amour LP )

I only knew you for a while
I never saw your smile
Till it was time to go
Time to go away

Sometimes its hard to recognise
Love comes as a surprise
And it's too late
It's just too late to stay
Too late to stay

We'll always be together
However far it seems
We'll always be together
Together in electric dreams

Because the friendship that you gave
Has taught me to be brave
No matter where I go
I'll never find a better prize
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Though your miles and miles away
I see you everyday
I don't have to try
I just close my eyes
I close my eyes

We'll always be together
However far it seems
We'll always be together
Together in electric dreams

We'll always be together
However far it seems
We'll always be together
Together in electric dreams

We'll always be together
However far it seems
We'll always be together
Together in electric dreams

We'll always be together
However far it seems
We'll always be together
Together in electric dreams

When Doves Cry

( Prince - Hollywood mon amour LP )

Dig if you will, a picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling, can you picture this
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Dream if you can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
Oh they feel the heat, the heat between me and you

How can you just leave me standing
Alone in a world that's so cold
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Or maybe I'm just like my father, too bold

Maybe I'm just like my mother
Oh she's never satisfied
How can we scream at each other
And this is what it sounds like when doves cry

Touch if you will, my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You've got the butterflies all tied up
Don't make me chase you, even doves have pride

How can you just leave me standing
Alone in a world that's so cold
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Or maybe I'm just like my father, too bold

Maybe I'm just like my mother
Oh she's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like when doves cry, cry
When doves cry, oh
