AS LONG AS YOU ARE STILL ALIVE But if the water goes over the bridges and the fence Do you think an angel will come and take your defense Well I hope you will feel not too grim When the time comes to go for a swim And as long as you behave as God’s favourite child Little by little you’re turning back to the wild Counting on technology For not having to change your way to be Don’t you think it’s time to make a stand As long as you are still alive And if a flickering bird comes and tries to make a deal About the branches and the trees he needs upon the hill Will you take your gun and shoot him down Watching his body crashing to the ground And when the polar bears claim justice for their rights About the disappearing of the ice that you didn’t fight Will you still be able to stay blind Just to keep your perfect peace of mind Don’t you think it’s time to make a stand As long as you are still alive And as long as you dream to be a millionaire With a lot of baby dolls around you everywhere Your religion of more and more Will make you miss what you’re looking for Don’t you think it’s time to make a stand As long as you are still alive

WALL IN MY BRAIN When I was twenty I built a wall inside my brain I thought it would protect me from people’s emotions Cause my heart was bleading And my skin was burning I coudn’t see the enemy came from inside And kept me deaf in a prison cell I finally find the peace Nothing came in but nothing could come out I felt alone and miserable, because the wall in my brain was real and my heart was bleading And my skin was burning I couldn’t see the ennemy came from inside And kept me deaf in a prison… It cut all communications Driving me in isolation But emotions are the salt of life Take a breath and break the wall When I was twenty I built a wall inside my brain I thought it would protect me from people’s emotions Cause my heart was bleading And my skin was burning I coudn’t see the enemy came from inside Cause my heart was bleading And my skin was burning I coudn’t see the enemy came from inside And kept me deaf in a prison cell

tell me 03:30
TELL ME Tell me What do you do Now I’m gone Far away from you Do you ride on your rusty bike On the same dirt roads Do you still go to swim on that beach Where the water’s so clear Are you picking some blackberries in the hedge Like we used to do Was it yesterday Or a long time ago Tell me What do you see While I’m here Far away from you Is the oak tree growing bigger In front of your bedroom window Do you still hang your dusty blue shirt At the back of your door Have you stuck on the wall the picture we bought On a rainy afternoon Was it yesterday Or a long time ago Tell me What do you do Now I’m gone Far away from you Tell me What do you see While I’m here Far away from you

I CAN’T REMEMBER WHY Once I was in a circus It was fun and full of lights I really thought it was the best place to be But now, I can’t remember why Once I went on a merry-go-round It turned faster and faster I was laughing and was so excited But now, I can’t remember why Once I wished I’d be a big girl It meant sex, money and freedom I believed in work and rules But now, I can’t remember why Once I’ll reach the final cut I will turn back and stare I will smile and feel in peace Because then I will understand why Yes then I will understand why because I will understand why

TURNING AROUND THE SUN We’ve been friends We’ve been lovers We’ve been women and men all through these years We’ve been angels We’ve been demons We’ve all been good and bad at the same time I’m living my way My very own way And I’m doing my best day after day But like you And millions of us I would like to know what we’re doing here Turning around the sun Just turning around the sun Hoping somebody’s watching Turning around the sun Just turning around the sun Wondering who is taking care We’ve made wars And we’ve made peace We’ve had so many cries and so many smiles We’ve been flying We’ve been crashing We’ve had so many tries which finally failed But we’re still keeping on Rocking and rolling Among winters and springs and summers and falls While above Stars in the sky Keep the secret of how long we’ve been here Turning around the sun Just turning around the sun Hoping somebody’s watching Turning around the sun Just turning around the sun Wondering who is taking care

love song 1 03:34
LOVE SONG 1 Give me your arms say you’ll protect me Look at me friendly Teach me what love is A gentle touch A sweet attention A kiss from nowhere Teach me what love is You’ll never miss me Cause our souls are complete I’ll never miss you Because I have eveything A picture of us No smile, no tears But a taste of truth Teach me what love is A peace of your skin A thrill in my heart A growing desir Teach me what love is You’ll never miss me Cause our souls are complete I’ll never miss you Because I have eveything Something like eternity Something like unicity Something like ….love ?

MY LAST NEW SONG Life is like When you’re waiting for the sun Time goes on You don’t know really what to do You walk around the house Looking through the window frame Raindrops are falling down The shinny pavement of the street I will try What I can to make it right I will take The time it needs to wash away Clouds flying up above Racing and rolling in your eyes Light slowly fading out While the day silently dies It could be a pain killer Cherry jam on a hot morning toast It could be a night on the beach Under the moonlight glow My last new song When you’re down Night and day just feel the same You wake up You don’t have anywhere to go You pinch some magazines Already red for hundred times You watch again and again The same old movies in black and white It could be a pain killer Cherry jam on a hot morning toast It could be a night on the beach Under the moonlight glow My last new song

WHERE DID I PUT AWAY MYSELF ? You who wait all the time for a miracle Who believe that hapiness comes from outside You who run all over the planet to find a solution to your never-ending pain You should stop and take a rest God can not come God can not come God can not come and visit if you’re not at home God can not come God can not come God can not come if you’re not at home Once in a movie I saw an old indian saying to a cow-boy racing all over the country, for so many years : « I call you far rider not for your great races but because you ride far from yourself » God can not come …. When I was young I was so busy to show a perfect image to the world trying to be like a movie star I finaly lost myself I thought that I was not good enough to be loved but how could you be loved if you can not love yourself ? God can not come ….

THE SADDEST SONG We’re talking about a young Dubliner In love with a girl from New-York City Don’t ask me how they met each other It’s not the subject of the story He’s working in a bar night and day Dreaming of a flight over the Atlantique But he doesn’t have any money His situation is really tragic It’s sad so sad It’s a sad sad song Never ever written and sung It’s the saddest song They send to each other SMS Few words for such a big feeling Their only moment of happiness Is when the telephone rings a little ding They got some pictures of themselves Cheek to cheek on a sunny day Placed in the middle of the bookshelves Under a light which is cold and grey It’s sad so sad…. Someday I guess he will start to feel Lonely as a broken heart can be Living with so much time to kill Can drive you completely crazy So he will connect his computer On a web site on which you can chat With a girl from Patagonia or somewhere With whom he’ll fall in love in second flat It’s sad so sad….

SOMETHING ABOUT YOU I came into the room to look around And when I saw you my feet stopped touching the ground The air was full of sounds and full of lights I knew I could stay here till the middle of the night When I looked at you I knew you couldn’t see There was almost a crowd between you and me You were talking to some people and you seemed so very cool I started to feel my self like a fool There was something about you Something about you I tried to feel at ease while picking up a glass But the liquid in my throat missed a bit of ice I needed somebody around to have a talk A friend with whom I could make a joke But nobody except you was in existence And the room without your face wouldn’t make any sense The music at the back was a kind of melody That I could have written for you and me There was something about you It took me just a minute to breathe some air outside To cool myself down and know what to decide I came back in the room I was still not feeling strong Not knowing what was right or wrong And in a second I knew that you had gone The atmosphere was flat and the air had nothing on I walked around a while under the moonlight in the park Looking for the ghost of you hiding in the dark There was something about you

Oui mais comme s’il avait été produit par Lee Hazelwood !
Une certaine idée du bonheur...
