2/5

Un best of et un greatest hits. Assez décevant en fait. Pour découvrir Peter par le biais d’un best of Shaking The Tree est bien plus pertinent à mon avis. La liste des chansons est bonne, aucun doute la dessus, mais il y a peu de surprise. Le Cd de hits, fait double emploi avec Shaking the tree et le cd de Miss aurait pu être plus aventureux… Heureusement qu’il y a des choses pour relever le tout comme de nouvelles versions de No Self Control ou I Have The Touch, ou encore la version live de Downside Up et évidemment Burn You Up Burn You Down et Lovetown.

(Gabriel/Sparkes/Wallinger)

Straight as an arrow, you carry your intentions through the wind
Dogs all around you, but you’re going to get the message to your friend
At every rendezvous you keep on looking around
Nightime in the city and the rain keeps falling down

Let me tell you how it all works out
Never thought we had so much time to loose
Just learning how to twist and shout
Doesn’t matter much which damn beat you use

Let me tell you how it all works out
Never thought we had so much time to loose
Just learning how to twist and shout
Doesn’t matter much which damn beat you use

Pilgrim knows the road to go – how many times we told you so
Burn you up we gonna burn you down, burn you up we gonna burn you down
With no rhyme or reason, no way to make it easy ‘till it’s done
Burn you up we gonna burn you down, burn you up we gonna burn you down
Saw you crossing to the other side of the street
Burn you up we gonna burn you down, burn you up we gonna burn you down
Should know better but you keep turning up the heat

Let me tell you how it all works out
Never thought we had so much time to loose
Just learning how to twist and shout
Doesn’t matter much which damn beat you use

Let me tell you how it all works out
Never thought we had so much time to loose
Just learning how to twist and shout
Doesn’t matter much which damn beat you use

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Make me feel this
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Make me feel it
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

When they lose you, they can’t use you to burn you up, burn you up
Burn you up we gonna burn you down,
Break me open I need someone to save me
Burn you up we gonna burn you down, burn you up we gonna burn you down
Make me feel it, make me feel

In the city and the rain is falling down
Burn you up we gonna burn you down, burn you up we gonna burn you down
You can make it happen with your eyes, your eyes alone

Let me tell you how it all works out
Never thought we had so much time to loose
Just learning how to twist and shout
Doesn’t matter much which damn beat you use

Let me tell you how it all works out
Never thought we had so much time to loose
Just learning how to twist and shout
Doesn’t matter much which damn beat you use

Break me open – make me feel it
Break me open – make me feel it

You can make me feel it, you can make me, you can make me
You can make me feel it
You can make me feel it

People go naked,
and follow these trails,
someone before me,
lay down these rails,
and it’s loaded up too heavy,
this engine fails,
in Lovetown,

can’t seem to settle down,
and do the teeth still match the wounds ?
take a good look around,
in Lovetown.

This is Lovetown.

Looking in Lovetown.

Sometimes you’re troubled waters,
on which I pour my oil,
in each others shadow,
the roots reach into the soil,
pull these knots so tightly tied,
we cannot uncoil,
in Lovetown,

no place to settle down,
and do the teeth still match the wounds ?
take a good look around,
Lovetown.

This is Lovetown.

Looking in Lovetown.

Whose lonely lips,
will find these hidden scars ?
Who’s seen the kisses,
left in dim lit bars ?
Who’s out on the streets,
looking for love like ours ?
Whose looking in lovetown
Tonight ?

Have you got what you want ?
Did you get what you need ?
With what you did,
and what you saw,
Did you find,
you needed more ?

Have you got what you came for ?

Are you really sure ?
Are you really sure ?

Living in Lovetown,

Lovetown.
