DANCING WITH MY DAUGHTER John&Betty - album Do souls wander The earth is trembling somewhere Volcanoes boom, tackling planes on the ground Economies collapse as we still claim for our pensions in the streets False prophets announce the end of the world in 2012 if we don’t change the way we live if we don’t understand, rich or poor, we’ll finish in the streets I can’t escape fear and anger But this morning, I’ve been dancing with my daughter TV counts the number of dead people each day, Mothers cry for hunger as children die in their arms People are begging for a harvest outside in the streets I can’t avoid sadness and sorrow but I’ve been joking with Annie on the phone tonight English politics sinking in the Thames Beef and veggies poisoning my blood Silent factories pushing job seekers In the streets I can’t get out of ageing and sicknesses But I’ve been writing a song with my love in the couch today I can’t escape fear and anger But this morning, I’ve been dancing with my daughter I can’t escape fear and anger But this morning, I’ve been dancing with my daughter We cannot save the world today but let’s try at least to save our souls

without you 03:16
WITHOUT YOU It was another lifetime I couldn’t see my future Didn’t know what I had to give Didn’t know what I needed to get Without you Now tomorrow is coming fast I can see clearly what’s ahead It makes me feel good How could I have spent so much time Without you Whatever happens I’ll take it babe I’m not afraid It’s a long long winding road On which I wouldn’t like to drive

love song 2 03:40
LOVE SONG 2 You took my words respectfully It moved me so completely I told you : give me an A Then we’ve been flying away I love the way you love me May be it’s the way you see me I love the way you love me When will you take the whole of me A phantom introduced us It was in paradise Since that time silences grow In your songs and in your eyes I love the way you love me May be it’s the way you see me I love the way you love me When will you take the whole of me It’s a long distance love Walking slowly from heart to heart Something I try to keep apart Something that sticks me like a glove I love the way you love me May be it’s the way you see me I love the way you love me When will you take the whole of me

too far gone 03:04
TOO FAR GONE Time has come and gone Filling my brain with memories I try to keep them all deep inside Like a golden ring in a safety box But yesterday won’t make tomorrow And all that we’ve got is what we’ve got now You’d better be quick you’d better be fast To catch any second that will pass Gone gone too far gone All these pieces of life Gone gone too far gone Who will keep them alive We walk on this track without a map Knowing there’s no way to come back We take pictures and we write songs Like we leave footprints on the moon Gone gone too far gone All these pieces of life Gone gone too far gone No way to keep them alive

THE NATURE OF LOVE You twist the reality to make it fit your own story You refuse to see the trouble you’re in cos you think you’re the trouble itself Unchained in the movie you made up, You lose your time justifying yourself You make us hostage of the wrong choices you’ve made You’d rather kill your own child than give up your inner lies You practice yoga as you swallow a prozac to pretend you’re alive You know you should ask for help but you always choose bad therapists because you love your neurosis better than your freedom You can’t stand your misfortune, so your brothers have to pay You push your darkest sides outside splashing your neighbourhood Your friends have the faces of your weaknesses don’t you understand ? Tup tup tulup tuptulup tup tup tulup You twist the reality to make it fit your own story You refuse to see the trouble you’re in cos you think you’re the trouble itself Unchained in the movie you made up, You lose your time justifying yourself You make us hostage of the wrong choices you’ve made You can’t stand your misfortune, so your brothers have to pay You push your darkest sides outside splashing your neighbourhood Your friends have the faces of your weaknesses don’t you understand ? Tup tup tulup tuptulup tup tup tulup Why should I carry your burden ? If you don’t break the curse, who will ? Clean your own side Then we’ll be friends

SHE BELIEVES SHE IS FREE She lives by herself Raising two kids and a dog And a silent sorrow In the house and the garden She can fix anything But the leak in her chest She drives like a man She can light any fire She is almost never afraid except of spiders She keeps her body perfect Sometimes she has sex But what she needs is tenderness She works all the time She has lots of very good friends Loneliness is one of them She always chooses alone The movie she wanna see And so o she never goes She believes she’s free She believes she’s free She lives by herself Raising two kids and a dog And a silent sorrow

berlin song 02:59
BERLIN SONG Hello my love so far away Did you walk in those Berlin streets all through the day Did you learn how to take the U bahn While I’m here on my own thinking of you Is the sky above your head as blue as mine Does the sun make your skin turn brown Will the wind bring me some news of you While I’m here on my own dreaming of you You’re so far, You’re so far, You’re so far You’re so far While I’m here dreaming of you Schoenlinestrasse Intersuppe Riverside lodge Oranien strasse Schokoladen Ackerstrasse Alexanderplatz Mitte Kreutzberg Check point Charlie Prenzlauer berg Tacheles So take a deep breath and make a wish I’ll do anything to make it real when I come back Close your eyes and sing a song for me While I’m here on my own dreaming of you You’re so far You’re so far You’re so far You’re so far While I’m here dreaming of you

BURNING STONE First I kiss your lips Fresh and ferm Then I pull your hand between my legs Then I hold my breath My ear on your chest I can feel the beat under your skin You wake up, stand up and leave I stay in bed like a burning stone Dreaming of lands that I’ve never seen Han han Dim light and shadows On the wall Naked skin under the sheets Cheek to cheek we fall asleep While outside the children play While outside the children cry You wake up, stand up and leave I stay in bed like a burning stone Dreaming of lands that I’ve never seen Han han,

lucky day 03:03
LUCKY DAY I took her hand then I painted her eyes I was sure right from the start She is the angel of the backstage Waiting for me for centuries I was burning But then I met her That’s what life owes me La la la I was the king of the break-up I coud not give up my dreams She understands my wanderings She can feel my deepest wills I couldn’t grow up But then I finally met her That’s what life owes me

DISASTER IN THE BATHROOM I woke up this morning, naked What the hell is going on Why I am lying Next to my children’s ducks In the bathroom It stinks The air is wet It seems somebody has been crawling around And I can’t stand this feeling In the bathroom I realize I lost my mind I was just thinking about brushing my teeth Just remember my face in the mirror My god it’s a real disaster! In the bathroom ad lib

about

Johnandbetty Paris, France

Dogme Lo-Fi oblige, JOHN & BETTY, adeptes de la scène anti-folk (Moldy Peaches, Jeffrey Lewis, Herman Dune…) chantent des chansons qu’on dirait réchappées du Velvet Underground N°3.
Oui mais comme s’il avait été produit par Lee Hazelwood !
Une certaine idée du bonheur...
