Beautiful Sun

Like a Feather

You’re so afraid to take the step
But it’s making you heavy
With a weight enchaining your feet
Everyday you’re unconscious
You’re not a little child anymore
Just let it out of yourself
It’s time to make a change
Leave the past for present
For your deliverance

Like a feather
Every minute you think about forgiving
Like a feather
Every second you think of all the freedom you seized
You feel…

You will see
when it’s finally done it’s easy
Old fears were holding you back
Everyday you’re now conscious
You’re not a little child anymore
You let it out of yourself
It’s time to take a chance
Leave the past for present
For your deliverance

chorus

That’s not right to ignore
All that you you care for
You’ve achieved steep roads before
You see, you’ve opened the door

Everytime you’re thinking… you feel

chorus- (everytime you think of all your relief)

Beautiful Sun

Where have you been
Did you come out to keep me warm
I just close my eyes
And my spirit flies
You relieve me from the storm
Hey beautiful sun
Don’t let me run
How would they survive
If they didn’t have your light
I can hear they say
You’re so dangerous
But I know they are delirious

Hey beautiful sun
Don’t let me run
Hey beautiful sun
Don’t let me run
Why do they stay away from you
They will live in gray and turn into shade
You make everything so pretty
Keeping me so happy
Hey beautiful sun
Don’t let me run
Hey beautiful sun….
….Don’t let me run

You help me thrive
You keep me alive
You take me high
In the sky

Hey beautiful sun
Don’t let me run
Hey beautiful sun….
….Don’t let me run
Why do they stay away from you
They will live in gray and turn into shade
Why do they stay away from you?

Thank You

When I lie down by the tree
The sunlight beaming through the leaves
Onto my skin
Clear mind softened by Nature
This is my home, this is my garden
I wake up in the morning
I play on my grand piano
To feed my soul
Quietly sweet melody
This is my life, this is my freedom

Thank you for all I received
The strongest power of all
I see it so clear
Thank you for letting me believe
Cos I truly deserve it all
I have no fear
Everybody deserves what the heart wants
Everybody deserves what the heart wants

I’m falling asleep on the beach
The stars are reflecting
Onto the sea
Staring at the Universe
This is my home, this is my silence

Thank you for all I received
The strongest power of all
I see it so clear
Thank you for letting me believe
Cos I truly deserve it all
I have no fear
Everybody deserves what the heart wants
Everybody deserves what the heart wants

The complete freedom to create what my heart is crying
The complete freedom to create what my heart is crying
I am so grateful

Thank you for all I received
The strongest power of all
I see it so clear
Thank you for letting me believe
Cos I truly deserve it all
I have no fear
Everybody deserves what the heart wants
Everybody deserves what the heart wants

The complete freedom to create what my heart is crying
I am so grateful, I write this song for you.

Try to Remember

Listening to this old song
You start to sing it along
Lyrics of heaven and light
Didn’t you use to believe in that
Whispering all night long
You regret the times you were wrong
There is no reason to fight
Didn’t you use to see it all bright
Ahh-ahh Ahh-ahh

Just try to remember
It’s still here, it’s still you
Just try to remember
How much it means to you
You can go further in everything that you do
You can go further until your dreams… come true

Listening to this old song
You start to sing it along
It talks about age and time
You don’t have to believe this lie
Whispering all night long
You pray you will be strong
There is no reason to fight
you know you can see it all bright

Ahh-ahh Ahh-ahh

Just try to remember
It’s still here, it’s still you
Just try to remember
How much it means to you
You can go further in everything that you do
You can go further until your dreams… come true
Come true…

Living your life all depends on you
They don’t have to understand you

Ahh-ahh Ahh-ahh

Just try to remember
It’s still here, it’s still you
Just try to remember
How much it means to you
You can go further in everything that you do
You can go further until your dreams… come true

The Only One

You forget all your heartaches
That’s really brave
Everything isn’t set to break
It’s never too late
You forget all his mistakes
That’s very sane
there’s no need to drift away
Always a new day
And there is someone you really like
That knows how to open up your heart
Cos he’s…

The only one
Who makes your eyes bright
The only one
Who makes you feel yourself
The only one
As you had no hope left…
The only one that makes you believe…
You could love again
aaah…

Got away from the fray
No reason to stay
Everything isn’t full of pain
Always a new day
And there is someone you already like
That knows how to take care of your heart
Cos he’s…

The only one
Who makes your eyes bright
The only one
Who makes you feel yourself
The only one
As you had no hope left…
The only one that makes you believe…
You could love again

aaahhh
One day you said there are only fools
When you declare this you will lose
When he come around you’re never down
When he’s around, you’ll never drown
Cos he’s…

The only one
Who makes your eyes bright
The only one
Who makes you feel yourself
The only one
As you had no hope left…
The only one that makes you believe…
In life
He makes your eyes bright
In life
He makes you feel yourself
The only one
As you had no hope left…
The only one that makes you believe…
In life
In life

Don’t Wait

If you think about today
Thinking it will be very long
You envy them when they say
There’s nothing wrong
If you think about tomorrow
Welcome what you’re meant to draw
Release what you suppress
And the bitterness

Please don’t wait
Life will not come to you
Let your heart say
What’s deep inside of you

If you finally awake
Listen to your inner voice
Forget all your mistakes
It’s your own choice
If you’re sorrow returns
Remember you don’t have to burn
Gather all your desires
And in the light

Chorus

We can go flying
Along the wind
On the wings…. of an angel

Chorus

Bliss of my Soul

Streets lights reflecting on my lyric page
Into this Spanish frame
I think about the time we met
I was looking for the cliff house
You helped me find it
Turned my head and gazed at the Pacific Bay
Moving and rolling at a slow pace
One wave would have its whole life
To break into the haze

The bliss of my soul
Carried by a wave
Would take away
All the tortures that were made
The bliss of my soul
Wanna reach the open space
Where the land ends
And the infinite stands

Couldn’t find the old castle
Only a postcard image
You said it’s been ravaged
In front of me only angry water
Captivating all my senses
I feel its power
I lay down by the sea
Like a lonely river
Moving and rolling at a slow pace
One wave would have an endless time to reach my face

chorus

I will let its strength
Unclutter my head
Like the shells on the sand
I will let the ocean wind
Whisper its secrets
Follow the motion
And come back to life
One more time

chorus

Oh Brother

Written/composed by LiLi Roquelin & Sam Scozzari
I will always remember
All the things that you would say
And the time we had together
And all the games that we would play

Oh Brother you were always there
To hold my hand
Oh Brother you were always there
To understand

And I remember every season
All the sun, all the snow
And sometimes rain
And all the sand upon our beaches
Brother are you lost somewhere in that sand far away

chorus

And one day you had your dreams
They seemed so real
When they told you
You’d see the world
What was the deal

And when I finally get my way
I will tell them that you’re gone
Because you thought they had told you the truth

Chorus
(Oh brother you have gone away at the darkest hour)
(I’m gonna say a word or two for you)
I will tell them that you’re gone
Because you thought they had told you the truth.

N’attends Pas (La Vie)

Si tu commences le matin
en pensant ce jour n’a pas de fin
Tu envies ceux qui sourient
Et seul tu te perds
Si tu songes a demain
En accueillant ton destin
Oublie ce qui t’aneantit
Et les mots amers
N’attends pas
La vie ne viendra pas a toi
Mais quand tu poursuis
Ce qui est au fond de toi
Si tu te reveilles enfin
En ecoutant ton instinct
Tu regardes ce qui t’inspire
T’es pas seul sur terre
Si ton chagrin revient
Tu n’sais pas, tu est incertain
Rassemble tous tes desirs
Et dans la lumiere

N’attends pas
La vie ne viendra pas a toi
Mais quand tu poursuis
Ce qui est au fond de toi
Ne prends pas la nuit comme un signe de froid
Tant que tu poursuis
Ce qui vit au fond de toi

On ira voler dans les etincelles
Des ailes d’un ange….

N’attends pas
La vie ne viendra pas a toi
Mais quand tu poursuis
Ce qui est au fond de toi
Ne prends pas la nuit comme un signe de froid
Tant que tu poursuis
Ce qui vit au fond de toi

 

Will you hate the rest of the world or will you renew your life?

Come and hear my story

Written/composed by LiLi Roquelin & Sam Scozzari

I walk the dusty streets alone
Without a home or a breath of my own
But deep inside my heart I’ve known
It’s a dream of mine I can’t let go
But it’s the way that you are different
Not just the way you are the same

I am here to stay
Come and hear my story
It’s in my heart every day
Come and hear my story
Every day, every day

Every time I take my measure
Every metre and mile and hour
It’s your love I’ve come to treasure
It’s your love that gives me so much power
When you live right in this moment
Understand it’s the way you play the game

I am here to stay
Come and hear my story
It’s in my heart every day
Come and hear my story
Every day, every day

lalalala…

I am here to stay
Come and hear my story
It’s in my heart every day
Come and hear my story
Every day, every day, every day

When you live right in this moment
Understand it’s the way you play the game.


Should get mad

Should you get mad
The real mission
Nothing but occupy
Should you get mad
They’ll repeat again in a new time

I had a strange dream last night
Flying in space to a star
We landed easily
We had evolved, we could breathe
Is it the only way you think, Tell me
Everything was grey with dirt, I saw Earth

Should you get mad
The real mission
Nothing but occupy
Should you get mad
They’ll repeat again in a new time

I had the worst dream last night
Lying in a place so far
They invaded easily
A new Empire to ruin
Is it the only way you think, tell me
On my left I remember I saw Earth

Should you get mad
The real mission
Nothing but occupy
Should you get mad
They’ll repeat again in a new time-They’ll repeat again in a new time
ooh-ooh-ooh

Should you get mad
The real mission
Nothing but occupy
Should you get mad
The motivation to monopolize
Should you get mad
They’ll repeat again in a new time

Give you my love

Long days I’ve been waiting
For you to ring my phone
When I wake up in the morning
I know I’ll be alone
My chest aches from my heart, screaming and crying inside
But don’t worry I am fine
I have this life
I’m not lost on my own

All I wanted to ask
Was to have one night to hold you
Give you my love
Why didn’t I ask
To have one night
To stare at you
Give you my love.

Long years I’ve been waiting
To write another love song
My soul was told it was wrong
It wanted to keep creating
The words for heartaches really don’t describe
But don’t worry I am fine
I have this life
Not empty on my own

All I wanted to ask
Was to have one night to hold you
Give you my love
Why didn’t I ask
To have one night
To stare at you
Give you my love.

I thought I knew sorrow
The tears from the past were below
Please don’t refuse, don’t refuse to see
Without you it’s misery…

Chorus.

Keep this for you

I’m skipping stones on the river
From the other side
You hear a sound
I can see you talk
But I can’t hear a word
You’re too far from the shore
And I won’t cross

Shambles in your mind
Keep this for you
Let me climb up the hills
I won’t do it for you

I’m running thru the dark woods
When the moon is full
I won’t change my mood
I hear the calling
The wind blowing
I’m too far from this world
And I won’t return

Shambles in your mind
Keep this for you
Let me climb up the hills
I won’t do it for you

Bridge:
No drowning dreams
In your conscience

Shambles in your mind
Keep this for you
Let me climb up the hills
I won’t do it for you

Never go

Where is your dream, you lost it again
In this madness, it can’t sustain
Aaaah
Where is the muse, assassinated
What to do, to resurrect it
Aaaah

So I will never go
And I will never flow
In this life so monotone
I can’t be just typical
So I will never go

Where is your dream, it slipped away
With thieves around, you can’t keep it
Aaah
What did you lose, when you let them choose
What to do, when destitute
aaah

So I will never go
And I will never flow
In this life so monotone
I can’t be just typical
So I will never go

Is this a part of it
Is this a part of this way
Do we have to take it alone to stay
Is this a part of it
Is this a part of this way
Do we have to travel alone to stay on it

So I will never go
And I will never flow
In this life so monotone
That’s not me being, ordinary

How we grow

It’s like it was yesterday
That we were fifteen
What happened to all of us
Some disappeared
Some followed their dream
Some blamed their friendships
Have you ever wondered…

How we grow
We never know where we’ll end
How we grow
We never know where we’ll stand
We thought we knew each other
We’d always be in touch
We forgot… we’re not immune to change
We’re not immune to change

It’s like it was yesterday
School seemed too long
What happened to all the words
Drawn on the tables
Some got erased
Some stayed in our heads
Have you ever wondered…

How we grow
We never know where we’ll end
How we grow
We never know where we’ll stand
We thought we knew the Future
We’d always be in touch
We forgot… we’re not immune to change,
We’re not immune to change

When I talk to you, I see careless moments
Trying to understand
to be independent
Is it surprising, to see what we have become…

How we grow, we’ll never know where we’ll end…

Sally’s song (French)

© 1993 Buena Vista Music Company.

Il y a une ombre dans le vent…
Je crois qu’une tragédie m’attend…
Comment lui avouer comme je l’aime
Sans lui faire part de mes problèmes ?
Le pire est encore à venir…

Sait-il que pour lui je donnerais ma vie ?
Je rêve souvent qu’il m’aime éperdument…
Même si c’est un tourment

Que deviendra mon bon ami ?
Où nous conduira sa folie ?
Autour de moi, tout le monde l’acclame
Mais je brûle d’une tout autre flamme
Parfois, la vie me semble un drame

Saura-t-il un jour m’offrir son amour?
No I think not… It’s never to Become…. For I am not… The One.
(Saurai-je lui plaire ? Ce n’est pas mon destin
Et je l’espère… En vain)

Renew

Mmmh… I’ve been wondering, should I write about this?

You couldn’t stand her bliss
You had to do your best
To destroy it, turn it all black
You manipulated everyone to put her in a trapt
Ooh

Cos everything she has you want to own it
Everything she sings you want to write it
What you see she had to fight for it
She had no fear of changes
Will you hate the ret of the world or will you renew your…
Life.

You wanted her dismissed
You thought you’d just persist
Look, you can find the strength for that
Can’t you use this drive for your own rise

Chorus

Did you like it, implosion
Like an angry wind blowing in your face
Did you like being cruel?
You didn’t win – she’s still vivid

What you see she had to fight for it
She had no fear of changes
Will you hate the ret of the world or will you renew your…
Life.

LiLi Roquelin THE EP

Blues Alone

Is it the only night you cry cos I lied
What did you do again to deserve this
I know you’ll never go and I don’t know why
And it’s putting me down
And it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright

I got the blues alone
Is it such a bad thing?
Noone’s here to help
So I will just complain, again and again
I got the blues blown,
Is it a terrible thing?
Noone’s here to tell
Another time again, again and again.

All the reasons why I sigh everytime
On my way you place something bad
I know you’ll never grow and I don’t know why
And it’s putting me down
And it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright

Chorus

And I’m scared of this too
I don’t care what you gonna do…

I got the blues alone
Is it such a bad thing?
Noone’s here to help
So I will just complain, again and again
I got the blues alone… again…
When noone’s here, noone’s here, noone’s here to help…
Is it a terrible thing?

Your Imagination

When I’m sleeping on a train
The motion picture can play
With the drama and the script
When the scenery arises
I wake up with a smile
Oooh

If you keep your imagination safe
Soon you’ll realize
It’s faster than your words can speak
If you keep your imagination safe
Soon you’ll realize
It’s faster than your mind can think
It’s faster than your self can breathe

You life can eat you away
The same round everyday
Look at what date it is
When the shiniest sun rises
Don’t sleep on the running time (repeat)
Ooh

Chorus

Je voudrais peindre le paysage
Ajouter a ce gris un peu de bleu rivage
Du noir et blanc passer a la couleur
Et donner a la vie un peu plus de bonheur

If you keep your imagination safe
Soon you’ll realize
It’s faster than your heart can beat.

Dare

N’est-ce pas assez clair?
Tu prends ton chemin, un nouveau depart
Meme s’ils n’ecoutent toujours pas
Il n’y a rien d’autre a faire
Ecris-toi une liste
De ce que tu desire
Meme si tu pars demain

It always seems to be the end
Everything hoped suddenly falls
It’s not supposed to happen
I have to find a way to leave
This place of paleness and grieve
And remain forever the dreamer
the dreamer

It’s not always fair
Just take a new start, a brighter path
Even if they still don’t listen
Is there anything to dare
Write down a whole list
The things you wish to live
Even if you’re not a trend

It always seems to be blend
When something good has an aftertaste
There’s no shortcut to make it happen
You have to know this evidence
You’re not happy and maybe tense
Just remain forever a dreamer
A dreamer

aaaahhhhh……

I Saw You

Forever on the road you stand
the little town where you stay strong
all alone you walk
Are you scared to make a plan
ooh

I know
All your reasons
they carry the tides to enlighten
I saw you.

forever you lay on the sand
Near the ocean where you belong
All alone, you talk
Are you at peace in this land

I know
All your reasons
they carry the tides to enlighten
I saw you.
I know
All your passions
they bury the past to enlighten
I saw you.

I understand:
You’re in your Mother Land.

I know
All your passions
they bury the past to enlighten
I saw you.

I saw you
Living the life you care
I saw you
Living the life you care.



Your Design

You think you can judge me
Or everything that I’m doin’
you’re giving me directions
About something you can’t recognize
you don’t leave me any option
Making me feel I’m unwise
you think you know it all
Ce qui compte c’est le control

when are you gonna open up your mind
I can’t be what you’ve defined
Stop being blind
open up your mind
noone cares if you reply
You always deny.
the world never becomes your design.

You think you set the limits
and I heard your critics
there’s no right time for action
And I can do what I decide
I don’t wait for the motion
to take me for a ride
I think I can do it all
Ce qui compte c’est ma parole

when are you gonna open up your mind
I can’t be what you’ve defined
Stop being blind
open up your mind
noone cares if you reply
You always deny.
the world never becomes your design.

aah, your plan is falling down
aah, you’ll end up in the ground

when are you gonna open up your mind
I can’t be what you’ve defined
Stop being blind
open up your mind
noone cares if you reply
You always deny.
the world never becomes your design.
the world never becomes your design.

Neverending Sundown Lyrics


Erase It Slow

Is it ever gonna quit confusing
aaah
Your nightmares mix
The sun from there and the people from here
You find the light in your intuition
aaah

For all you missed for so long
For the same road you walk on and on

Is it ever gonna quit confusing…..aah
Your nightmares mix
The sound from there and the voices from here
You take the light from your intuition
You survive with your inspiration

For all you missed for so long
For the same road you walk on and on
For all you missed for so long
For the same road you walk on and on
Is it the only right, is it the only right

Look down the deep ravine as the red rocks roll and fall
Where you threw the souvenir, the vibration still calls
Take care of your sorrow, erase it slow.


Bitter End

eeee-eeee-eeeeh
A mask of the weakness to not face
That everything you wish is always less
At the end you failed: you were sent to Hell
Yes in the end you failed, you were sent to

Seize what may fall, souls will never lift like before
Seas that may flow, words will never twist like before

A mask for your success to not face
At the end you failed: you were sent to Hell
Yes in the end you failed, you were sent to Hell.

eeee-eeee-eeeeh

A mask for your uses to not face
Yes in the end you failed, you were sent to

Seize what may fall, souls will never lift like before
Seas that may flow, words will never twist like before
Seize what may fall, souls will never lift like before
Seize what may fall

eeee-eeee-eeeeh


These Four Walls

On the top of the blinding white kingdom
They imprisoned the queen of freedom
In a room only filled with walls of stone
Leading to the loss of the world
She’s locked in this keep with all the wisdom
Waiting for the dove to hear her wish and come
Together they would slip away
Catch the dream of a final escape

Is this time to break all the chains?
Is this life just a masquerade?
Time to turn the page, all what bled was Hate

She’s locked in this keep with all the wisdom
Together they would slip away
Catch the dream of a final escape

Is this time to break all the chains?
Is this life just a masquerade?
Time to turn the page, all what bled was Hate.
Is this time to break all the chains?
Is this the key to a new age?
Time to turn the page, all what bled was Hate

We’ll never let it out
Even when it screams so loud
We’ll never let it breathe
Liberty needs to be free
We’ll never let it out
We’ll never let it out
Let it out.


Just Blessings

I tell you old stories
To have you dive into my soul
I call the endless seas
To embrace you and me
Look at the vision of my imagination
You’ll write the tale book of a revolution
Look at the vision of my imagination…and please

Come with me
Don’t follow them
Get into my reverie
Run with me
To the seventh gate
Return my memories

I tell you old stories
To have you dive into my soul
I call my old memories
To embrace you and me
Look at the vision of my imagination
You’ll write the tale book of a revolution
Look at the vision of my imagination….and please

Come with me
Don’t follow them
Get into my reverie
Run with me
To the seventh gate
Come with me
Don’t follow them
They all lie their pain
Run with me
To the seventh gate
Return my memories.

It’s not just blessings
The power is all in front of you
Now just don’t come back to find yourself by yourself

Come with me
Don’t fall in
Get into my reverie
Run with me
To the seventh gate
Come with me
Don’t fall in
They all lie their pain
Run with me
To the seventh gate
Into my reverie…


The Secret

Aaah
You’re standing in this room
Wondering
How you can make him disappear
The evil plan you’re starting to see
Will now begin your sleepless nights

To satisfy your sick desire
And camouflage the whole inside
To satisfy your sick desire
And camouflage the hole inside

You’re standing in this room
Wondering
How you can make him disappear
The evil plan you’re starting to see
Will now begin your sleepless nights

To satisfy your sick desire
And camouflage the whole inside
To satisfy your sick desire
And camouflage the hole inside

Aaah
Aaah


Shadow Of Doubt

Another place, another time, another sky
I walk right there now
Ooh

They buy your dreams and steal your southern star
To draw the scar and identify the beginning

This sour note telling me return to you
You are only one, you are only one.

Je ne sais pas pourquoi je pense a
Cette image qui me renvoie vers le pass
Le me sentiment qui me torture parfois
Toujours fi
Oh regarde-moi, presonne dâ autre ne peut le faire
Oh regarde-moi

They buy your dreams and steal your southern star
They identify the beginning

It’s closer than you think
You are only one.


Neverending Sundown

Believe she’s gone
When you’ll see her lying down
You’ll believe she’s gone

Everyone has wonders about life
Losing someone you love when you’re five
Is this the right thing to keep you alive?

Grow up as time goes by
When the sand glass gets at half
The loved ones fall into the past

I heard the words been denied
The truth says she gave out
I heard the words been denied
The truth says she gave out

Believe she’s gone
When you’ll see her lying down
You’ll believe she’s gone
For the never-ending sundown

Losing someone you love when you’re five
Is this the right thing to keep you alive?
Grow up as time goes by
When the sand glass gets at half
The loved ones fall into the past

I heard the words been denied
The truth says she gave out
I heard the words been denied
The truth says she gave out

Believe she’s gone
When you’ll see her lying down
You’ll believe she’s gone
For the never-ending sundown

Everyone has wonders about life
When you get older
Everyone around you wither
They’ll be gone forever.


They Say

They say he brings serenity
They say he keeps away insanity
He will never bring us back to reality

Your voice resounds
Like a scream through the wall
Arising from the daydreams
Your spirit plays
On a pipe organ and makes
These slow and long notes
Not far behind you

Anywhere, he is everywhere
They chose the wrong messenger
To kill the eternal scare

Your voice resounds
Like a scream through the wall
Arising from your daydreams
Your spirit plays
On a pipe organ and makes
These slow and long notes
Not far behind you

Anywhere, he is everywhere
They chose the wrong messenger
To kill the eternal scare
Anywhere, he is everywhere

They say he breathes serenity
They say he gives away insanity
He will never bring us back reality


Soldier

It’s a quarter now to the hour
Where I’ll find out who’s in power
It’s not my former, it’s me
Come closer now to find out
Who’s the one I heard about
It’s not my former, it’s the soldier in me

Chorus:
All those prayers
Won’t repair what’s done
The people are waiting, a savior can you save me just once

I can tell it’s getting to you

It’s a quarter now past the hour and I found out I’m in power
It’s not my former, it’s me

Chorus
I’ve done what you stated
This safety has betrayed us, we fall
Because the people are waiting
A savior can’t sleep safely
He led them down the wrong road
I’ve done what you stated
This safety has betrayed us, we kept it from them all along.
Ooh.

A Taste of Departure Lyrics


Wall around you

When you feel your heart is right
You wanna believe it’s in the past
Why don’t you look at me
Why don’t you look at you
Listen to your feelings, they’re trying to get out
They’re sending an SOS
Chorus:
You built a wall around you
A frozen fence between you and me
You built a wall around you
I’ll melt the ice of your heart
You built a wall around you
Tell your soul it can trust my might
You built a wall around you
I’ll bring summer in your life

When your arms hold me tight
I can hear your heart beating so fast
Why do you lie to me
Why do you lie to yourself
Listen to your feelings, they’re calling out loud
They’re sending an SOS
Chorus
When you feel your heart is right
You wanna believe it’s in the past
Why do you lie to me
Why do you lie to yourself
Listen to your feelings, they’re calling out loud
They’re sending an SOS
Chorus

SALSA NUMBER 4

I drive down to a club tonight
The Dreamers in Marbella
On la costa del sol
I enjoy
A nice sunshine
I want some spanish songs
To move me all night long
But I don’t wanna be on my own ooh

Chorus:
Quiero que vengas conmigo
Esta noche a bailar la salsa
Los Angelitos han cojido mi Corazon

You’d like a great party
Then follow me, to Ibiza
It’s a famous island
To dance hours
Till the break of dawn
I want some spanish songs
To move me all night long
But I don’t wanna be on my own ooh

Chorus

You wanna see real Spain
We can stop in Sevilla
You will forget your pain
I promise, you’ll be alright
I want some spanish songs
To move me all night long
But I don’t wanna be on my own ooh

Bridge

82MPH

It’s 10 pm and it’s been a long day
I’m driving alone and far away
82 on the highway
I think I’m gonna get caught again
Oh-oh now he’s coming
I’m pushing through the speed limit
Chasing me for one more mile
I guess I will just give that smile
Some say that I am

Chorus:
Eeyaeeyaeeya-ah, eeyaeeyaeeya-ah
Eeyaeeyaeeya-ah, eeyaeeyaeeya-ah
Eeyaeeyaeeya-ah, eeyaeeyaeeya-ah
Eeyaeeyaeeya-aaaah eeyaeeyaeeya-ah

1 am I enter the Bliss Bar
The One on East 49th Street
I got a quarter in my pocket
But I want one or two or three drinks
Oh-oh there he’s standing
In front of me he starts smoking
I want a beer and I like his style
I guess I will just give that smile
Some say that I am

Chorus.

Bridge.
It’s 5 am and it’s been a long night
I’m driving in the morning light
82 on the highway
I hope he will get me again
Oh-oh now he’s coming
I can see he’s right behind me
I will show him where to follow me
I guess I will just give that smile
Some say that I am

Chorus-end.

Gotta Go Now

You want me here close to you
And my happiness?
You think just about yourself
Please understand me

Chorus:
I gotta go now
And be on my own
I’ll never let you down
But let me be
I gotta go now
Can’t you let me be
I know you love me
But let me be
I gotta go now
It’s time to move on
On what I’m hanging on
So let me gooo
Oh set me free
I was born to live

You tell me I’m not normal
To believe in dreams
I just wanna reach my goal
So, leave me alone

Chorus

I will across the ocean
Live my real passion
Just leave present for future
A taste of departure.

What is she looking for?

Why she always turns up boys
That are in love with someone else
Why she treats them like toys
She don’t know they are human(s)
She shouldn’t have tried to pick him up that day
Cos he’s my friend’s boyfriend

Chorus:
What is she looking for?
She thinks we are blind
She says she’s not so bad
She’s every night with a new guy
What is she looking for
Why she throws away boys
As she wakes up in the morning
Tellin’ em she won’t hear the phone ring
Main thing: she enjoys
She shouldn’t have stayed in this Irish Cafe
Drinking her Chardenet

Chorus

Why she breaks up with boys
Only after few hours
It’s too late to start a relation
She don’t wanna know passion
She don’t see her reputation getting worse
But I see her play

Chorus

What is she looking for?

Summer rain (pluie d’été)

It’s so warm, there’s a heat wave
Strong wind shakes the trees
It smells like wet soil
The sunrays hit my skin
Until a dark cloud gives some shadow
The wind stops, calm before storm
Birds quit singing
And here’s the first drop… Of a summer rain

CHORUS
Une pluie d’été
Un amour passé et tu racontais
Qu’on s’envolerait
Loin pour notre monde parfait

The freshness of this rain
Will give some life to Nature
As the flowers were let to die
They’ll open again
And roses will bloom and shine
The wind stops, calm before storm
Birds quit singing
And here’s the first drop
Of a summer rain

CHORUS

Une pluie d’été
Mon amour je sais que la destinée
Peut nous amener
Dans ce rêve que l’on dessinait

Bridge……

CHORUS:

Summer rain
A love passed
And u were saying that we’ll fly away
Far, for our perfect world
Summer rain
My love I know that destiny
Can take us
In this dream that we were drawing…in this dream…summer rain.

Deep Love

Portraits of true love around me
Like two lovers walking and talking:
I can’t live my life without you
Nobody told the same to me
I’m so lonely in this paradise

Love’s not in my direction
Heartache’s my destination
I’m so empty inside, I need some Deep Love

Love songs played on the radio
I turn it off cos it kills my heart
I don’t know where I will find love
Nobody could give it to me
I’m so lonely in this paradise

Chorus:
Love’s not in my direction
Heartache’s my destination
I’m so empty inside, I need some deep love
There’s nobody by my side
To hold on through the night
I’m so empty inside, I need some Deep Love
I heard many times the same old line
Rain was here to help me to cry
I know someday it will change
Someone will come and I will be saved
And right now I stand alone

Chorus

Some deep love
Some deep love – deep looove

A day in L.A.

When I open my window this morning
On the shiny Beverly Beach view
I guess it’s gonna be
A relaxing day
I wear my little
Black suit
I take my convertible keys
And let’s go
Oh no, I won’t take Harbor Freeway
Now’s your time
Get work outta your mind
I’ll bring you one day in L.A.
Let the wind come to you
Come with me for a day
A day in L.A.
A day in L.A.
Just in the middle of Sunset Boulevard
As I’m stoppin’ at the traffic lights
That guy on the left
Beeping his horn
He’s cute and he’s got
Nice sunglasses
He thinks I’ll let him move off
At the first
He’s wrong, I give him a smile and bye-bye

Chorus guitar solo

Chorus

No more rules
If you wanna be free
I’ll bring you one day in L.A.
Let’s go to the seaside
Enjoy the sunshine
A day in L.A.

Bad Blues

Don’t wanna get out of bed
I feel like I’m wasted
I think I haven’t slept
For a while
Last night I was out so late
I was in a blue bar
And playing the little rock’n’roll star

Chorus:
Please don’t call me
I feel I have a bad, bad blues
Please forget me
I feel I have a bad blues
All I wanna do today’s go down to the river
Lay down on the grass,
Under the sun
I’ll listen to Stillwater
And let the time pass
This is how I wanna have some fun

Chorus

Solo

Chorus

All I’m gonna do today
Just smoke a cigarette
Don’t want anybody
To hang around
Then I can go downtown
To the old music store
This is how I wanna have some fun

Chorus

I MISS

I miss the ocean
And the sparkling waves on the sand
I miss the blue sky
And the morning walk to the wild island
I miss the silence
Of the pretty purple Provence
I miss the small city
And the late night train
Where I would write a song, just like this one
You wanted a song for you, well it’s this one

Chorus:
I don’t want to forget you
Unless you forget all about me
But when I think about there, a million miles away
It seems like it was… A million years ago

I miss everyone
Carry you everywhere in my heart
I miss seeing you
On every holiday of the year
I miss sharing with you
Running away on the Bay
I really do miss you
And will you come here one day
When will I hold you, I have no clue
I won’t come back, and you know why

Chorus.

Bridge.
A million years ago
I miss the ocean
And the sparkling waves on the sand
I miss the blue sky
And the morning walk to the wild island
I miss the silence
Of the pretty purple Provence
I miss the small city
And the late night train
Where I would write a song, just like this one
You wanted a song for you, well it’s this one

Lovely child

You wanna part with each other
You’re sure it’s the better choice
As your life became deadlock
But don’t forget how much he needs his father
And the protection of his mother
If you let him all alone
Here, he could drown

Chorus:
This lovely child
He’s not the one to blame
Lovely child
You’re not here to relieve his pain
He’s lost, he’s hurt
He’s wild
When are you gonna care about this
Lovely child

He watches his face in a mirror
His eyes full of rain and storm
Thinking that’s all his fault
Can’t find the way to feel like a feather
He’s trying to divide in two
His soul wanna stay one
He remains strong

Chorus

Betrayal

I thought you were a friend
But you hurt me a lot
I’m still suffering inside
I feel hatred inside
Thank you, now I can realize
Who are my endless friends
They never make me cry

Chorus:
Betrayal, Betrayal, I trusted you
Betrayal, Betrayal, I helped you
Betrayal, Betrayal, you can not lie
Betrayal, Betrayal, you can not hide

I forget I’ve ever met you
Cos you don’t deserve me
I don’t care about you
I must achieve my dream
I want, people to smile
And go find the light
They need love and music

Chorus

Bridge:
I must achieve my dream
It’s the only way to guide me
To people who need my music to light up their life
I must achieve my dream
It’s the only way to guide me

Little Picture

I was nervous before seeing him – mmh
I played a nice love groovy music – mmh
How could I imagine we’d go steady
The look you gave me when you came to me
From this moment on I realized there was something
How could I know I didn’t dream?

Chorus:
Just a little picture
Would prove to me our lives, crossed one sunny day
Just a little picture
An image to show it’s with me you stayed
Just a little picture
Where I’d see how much your look means a lot for sure
Just a little picture
That shows it’s not over I’ll know it forever

Spending the afternoon close to you – mmh
I didn’t keep out of the limelight – mmh
It was very easy to act naturally
We were in complete harmony
Your smile, the sweetness of your kiss were the best signs
How could I know I didn’t dream?

Chorus

Just a little picture *3
