Track Name: The day
THE DAY


For everyone there is the day
The day of the meeting
The hoped but unexpected encounter
The day you meet the one

When all the chances gather
To re-unite two souls
And bring them together
The day


How could I be so rude when I met
You on this boat?
I just laughed at you and said “Oh no! Another French
Boy on this boat!”

I was more the kind for
Love at second sight
I was young and blind
That day


Now I would give everything that I have
To live that day again
I would look deep into your eyes and say
“That’s just a start my friend!”

I would jump on you
To clearly let you know
This the day weirdo
The day!

Track Name: The words I sing
THE WORDS I SING


I go where
The golden glints gather
I follow
Their lights and I whisper

The words I sing
Carry hope like spring
I’m fed up with the gloomy, the dark and the grim

The words I sing
Carry hope like spring
I wanna have the sun everyday on my skin


They’ll take me
To the borders of the world
Where the seas
Fall in the Milky Way

The words I sing
Carry hope like spring
I’m fed up with the gloomy, the dark and the grim

The words I sing
Carry hope like spring
I wanna have the sun everyday on my skin

I will kiss
The sea drops in the air
Should I jump?
Please just remember that …

The words I sing
Carry hope like spring
I’m fed up with the gloomy, the dark and the grim

The words I sing
Carry hope like spring
I wanna have the sun everyday on my skin

Track Name: My superior World
MY SUPERIOR WORLD


The clouds are bright
Shadows are weak
Hurdles disappear

Smooth are my hands
My lifelines change
They seem to expand

What is this scene?
Where my voice screams
“This is happiness”

Hills are glowing
Is this still real life?


Sheltered in our love
Like sparrows in their grove
You will always be
My only family
My superior world

Your thousand laughs
Echoe and spread
Music in my head

Within our hearts
Words are flying
Strangely different

How come our fears
Their raging noise
Are now fading out?

We are one blood
We are just one soul

Sheltered in our love
Like sparrows in their grove
You will always be
My only family
My superior world

Track Name: Our groovy untuned love
OUR GROOVY UNTUNED LOVE


It’s not those mics called the “overheads”
And it’s not those crystals that fit into the palm of my hands
No they won’t crack the safe where I piled hundreds of words just for you
Will you try to keep me even if I never break the silence ?


You’re my “doudou” boy, you’re my hut, you are my intimate shed
I like our groovy love even if we are obviously untuned

We’ll have to gamble
Conceal our secrets
We’ll have to set aside
Our rusty strings
Lead and metals pointed upon us
Our dislocated concerto
Shine and shine with our groovy frequencies
Shall we try to keep on even if we’re never in tune ?

You’re my “doudou” boy, you’re my hut, you are my intimate shed
I like our groovy love even if we are obviously untuned

And if it was a perfect love, it wouldn’t be the same tune
Wouldn’t you miss those dirty sounds… untuned ?
Untuned…

Track Name: Juggling with 3 hearts
JUGGLING WITH 3 HEARTS


I’m juggling with 3 hearts in my hands
2 will fall and I guess 1 will stand
No one knows how long I can pretend
No one knows if this game ever ends

My heart bounces again
Damages in sight
Will I ever bend?
I wonder if I might

I’ll have to set my 3 hearts on fire
This is a dizzy trick in a weird fair
And around me curious people gather
They drool when hearts do burn in the air

My heart dances again
Damages in sight
Will I ever bend?
I wonder if I might

Track Name: I'll take you underground
I’LL TAKE YOU UNDERGROUND


One day if you don’t mind
I’ll take you underground
Where the freaks dance around
Under the vaults of a forgotten cave

There’ll be crazy bands
Acting extremely strangely
There might be monster gangs
Who knows what arises when you’re open to change?

And we’ll be sliding in the dark
With magnifying glasses
It all seems to be so stark
But we love seedy places

And this black will be as bright
As the rays of the sunlight
And the colours of their smiles
Will paint our lips in mauve
And I’ll stop holding back
Those words “I love you”

A flood of words will gush up
We’ll speak and speak endlessly
We’ll fill our eyes with passion
Under the vaults of the forgotten cave

Lifted up by the moment
Overwhelmed with emotions
Our hearts will skip a few beats
Who knows what arises when you’re open to change?

I know your heart is different
You don’t resemble what you are
So one day if you don’t mind
I’d like to take you underground

Where the black will be as bright
As the rays of the sunlight
And the colours of the smiles
Will paint our lips in mauve
And I’ll stop holding
Those words “I love you”

Track Name: My remedy
MY REMEDY

Good bye
Farewell
Today I leave
I can take a plane to anywhere
I wonder where you are and if you care

I think I’ll go to Salta
A city located in
Argentina
I was told there is a Moon Valley
You might be sleeping there wearily

I’d wake you up with a kiss you’d be my magical dream

Life is quite curious
Love is fairly vicious
I’m kind of hilarious
All the time
That’s my remedy
To this huge comedy
I laugh and I pee
On the time
And I walk on space
To ward off my silly fate


If you’re not in Salta
I’ll move up to South Bolivia
To Uyuni
You might be waiting on l’Isla Del Sol
Sitting on a giant cactus tree

And if I don’t find you there
I will take a chance on the
Easter Island
It all comes down to magic over there
It’s full of stones and undiscovered caves

There’ll be a gentle spirit to interfere

Life is quite curious
Love is fairly vicious
I’m kind of hilarious
All the time
That’s my remedy
To this huge comedy
I laugh and I pee
On the time
And I walk on space
To ward off my silly fate

Track Name: A precious moment
A PRECIOUS MOMENT


You wake up
Wrapped in your dreams
You start to stretch like a cat

The sun shines
It’s Sunday morning
And I feel free as a bird

And I love you
The grain of your skin
Spreads sparkles in me

We’re lazy
We share a few kisses
Embrace tenderly

We’ll leave the world behind and keep lying in the sun
Is time really passing by or are we kind of eternal?

In the air
Flavours of fresh bread
And delicious coffee

The bell rung
Eleven times
It could have been billions more
(and)
Outside
Children are playing
We hear them laughing

I know
You enjoy it
Though you’ve never really loved me

Whatever we are and whatever we feel
There are precious moments we should never throw away

In the beauty of this morning, we’ll just pretend to be one
We’ll try to find a name for the kids we’ll never have
Whatever we are and whatever we feel
There are precious moments we should never throw away

Track Name: Can we change ?
CAN WE CHANGE ?

There ain’t nobody that I know
Can claim he always acts freely
Under pressure we surrender
Can’t we speak out against it ?

We’re like stuck in a winter
Where the cold pinches our skin
The wind does squeeze in everywhere
Freezing our faces with fear

Can we stop ?
Can we change ?
Can we try to do something useful in the end?

I‘ll bring the sun and warm you up
I’ll say “Don’t give in, keep it up”,
Have some food and have a rest
And let your soul just do the rest”

I know your hearts are different
Please stop smothering their beats!
I know your inner nature man
I know you could be innocent!

Can we stop ?
Can we change ?
Can we try to do something useful in the end?

In all my dreams you stand up free
And proudly give that look at me
I would see how life is strong
Flowing from your gigantic eyes

I’d say “Happy, I’m so happy!
I’m gonna paint myself in green
I’m gonna jump like a hopper
Above the seas above the skies”

Can we stop ?
Can we change ?
Can we try to do something useful in the end?

Track Name: Taste everything
TASTE EVERYTHING


Nathanael
Grows a new skin
Alters his pigments
One can change…

Forget it all
Feel everything
Be a filter
By yourself

And I will travel in
The fruits and the flavours
I will taste tangerines
I’ll put my tongue in yours

I will try everything
I’ll learn it all myself
I’ll keep on digging in
I’ll swallow all the earth

Track Name: The mighty Bogatyr
THE MIGHTY BOGATYR

The legend of the marvellous
Journeys and heroic deeds
The many adventures
Of Prince Bova

The mighty Bogatyr
Begins with the tale of his insidious mother

Militrisa Kirtiervna
Plotted the death
Of her husband
Tsar Guidon
So she could marry her secret lover Tsar Dadon

But when Dadon threw
Bova into a dungeon
Militrisa’s maternal heart
Was deeply touched

The mighty Bogatyr
And so she helped Bova to escape

His two great powers:
Unparalleled strength
And unearthly beauty
Enabled him
To defeat the forces of evil and find his true love:
Druzhevna Zenzeveyvna

He then married her
And he too became a Tsar
They had a son
Whom they also called Bova

The mighty Bogatyr
Ends with the tale of his handsome boy

Bova the elder
When his son grew up
Returned home
Craving for revenge
He beheaded Dadon and his son was crowned Tsar in his place

Auteur: Guillaume Cousin
Track Name: Wait for me
Wait
Wait for me
Wait for me my friend
I’ll be back again

I watch you walk
Down from the windowsill
Cause I have to meet my devils tonight


Wait
Wait for me
Wait for me my friend
I’ll be back again


I hope you won’t hold it against me
Cause I swear
I’ll make it up to you


Auteur: Guillaume Cousin
Track Name: Let us be friends
LET US BE FRIENDS


Hey baby, I don’t think that you understand
You’re turning, you’re turning,
You are turning around me but I’ve got a man

Well do you need a written notice as a fact?
Are you rea, are you rea,
Are you really stupid or do you just pretend?

I’m already taken and I say
Let us be friends, let us be friends again


Don’t you see that you ain’t deceiving nobody
Your uncea, your uncea
Your unceasing sempering ways get on my nerves

Don’t put on such airs showing so much soppiness
Please relax, have a rest,
And then come back to me when you get over it

You’re nice and cute oh little boy
Let us be friends, let us be friends again


Let us be friends, don’t try to charm me
Let us be friends, don’t put the blame on me
Let us be friends, please keep it cool baby
Let us be friends, just find another lover!
