Peter Gabriel

Had enough of this
Out Out Out Out
I seen a crazy dog, crazy dog
in the flowers in the wood, crazy dog
I’ve seen a crazy dog, crazy dog
crash through flowers in the big wood
Do not know why it is that everywhere I go
I’m seeing tall trees, tall trees
They cover me
All around me
As they’re standing up all around me
with their big leaves, small leaves
They cover me
I’ve had enough
I want out out, out out

Gotta do something, can’t do nothing
Cause I know these people, they don’t know me at all
I want to hold you in my arms
I want out, I want out, out out
I want out, I want out, out out

When I’m home I look around me in a room
I see the white walls, stone walls, so solid
and in the lonely night, watch the disappearing light
on white walls, stone walls, swear they’re moving in

Gotta do something, can’t do nothing
cause I know these people, they don’t know me at all
I want to hold you in my arms, again
I want to hold you in my arms
I want out, I want out, out out
I want out, I want out, out out
out out out Hey Hey Hey out out
out out out Ho Ho Ho Ho…

Come out of the night
I want out, I want out
Come out of the shadow
Out of fear, out of fear and pain
Into the warming sun
Into the warming sun
I will be with you again, will be with you
Out of the shadow, out of fear and pain
I will be, I will be, I will be, I will be
I will be with you again
Out Out, out, out
Drain away the blood, out of darkness
Out of shadow, out of the night
Out of all the pain I’m going
Ho Ho Ho Ho, out out…
Out Out out out out Hey Hey…

4/5

Encore une compilation qui pourrait être un nouvel album. Peter fait ses fonds de tiroir pour ressortir ses chansons utilisées dans des films. Il en manque bien sûr. Notamment Lovetown et Out Out qu’on aurait préféré à la place d’une nouvelle version de In Your Eyes… 

Tracklist

A kind and steady heart can make a grey sky blue
And a task that seems impossible, is quite possible for you

A kind and steady heart, is sure to see you through
It may not seem like very much right now
It’ll do, it’ll do
When you find yourself in the middle of a storm
And you’re tired and cold and wet
And you’re looking for a place that’s cozy and warm
You’ll make it; you can never forget!

A kind and steady heart, can conquer doubt and fear
A little courage goes a long, long way
Gets you a little bit farther down the road each day
And before you know it, you’ll hear someone say
« That’ll do, Babe, that’ll do »

A kind and steady heart, is sure to see you through
A little courage goes a long, long way
Gets you a little bit farther down the road each day
And before you know it, you’ll hear someone say
« That’ll do, that’ll do, that’ll do, Babe, that’ll do

Did you think that your feet had been bound
By what gravity brings to the ground?
Did you feel you were tricked
By the future you picked?
Well, come on down

All these rules don’t apply
When you’re high in the sky
So come on down
Come on down

We’re coming down to the ground
There’s no better place to go
We’ve got snow up on the mountains
We’ve got rivers down below

We’re coming down to the ground
To hear the birds sing in the trees
And the land will be looked after
We send the seeds out in the breeze

Did you think you’d escaped from routine
By changing the script and the scene?
Despite all you made of it
You’re always afraid of the change

You’ve got a lot on your chest
Well, you can come as my guest
So come on down
Come on down

We’re coming down to the ground
There’s no better place to go
We’ve got snow up on the mountains
We’ve got rivers down below

We’re coming down to the ground
We’ll hear the birds sing in the trees
And the land will be looked after
We send the seeds out in the breeze

Like the fish in the ocean
We felt at home in the sea
We learned to live off the good land
We learned to climb up a tree

Then we got up on two legs
But we wanted to fly
Oh, when we messed up our homeland
And set sail for the sky

We’re coming down to the ground
There’s no better place to go
We’ve got snow upon the mountains
We got rivers down below

We’re coming down to the ground
We’ll hear the birds sing in the trees
And the land will be looked after
We send the seeds out in the breeze

We’re coming down
Comin’ down to earth
Like babies at birth
Comin’ down to earth
Redefine your priorities
These are extraordinary qualities

We’re coming down to the ground
There’s no better place to go
We’ve got snow upon the mountains
We’ve got rivers down below

We’re coming down to the ground
We’ll hear the birds sing in the trees
And the land will be looked after
We send the seeds out in the breeze

We’re coming down to the ground
There’s no better place to go
We’ve got snow upon the mountains
We’ve got rivers down below

We’re coming down to the ground
We’ll hear the birds sing in the trees
And the land will be looked after
We send the seeds out in the breeze

Redefine your priorities
These are extraordinary qualities
To find on earth

Comin’ down, comin’ down
Comin’ down, comin’ down
Comin’ down, comin’ down
Comin’ down, comin’ down

So then, up upon this high wall
Looking at the street lights
All spread out like a banquet
Why is this room so silent?
Only when I’m moving
No direction chosen
Rolling over emotion
Guess I’m your party man.
p p party man, p p partyman
I’m your party man

The book of love is long and boring
No one can lift the damn thing
It’s full of charts and facts and figures
And instructions for dancing

But I
I love it when you read to me
And you
You can read me anything

The book of love has music in it
In fact that’s where music comes from
Some of it is just transcendental
Some of it is just really dumb

But I
I love it when you sing to me
And you
You can sing me anything

The book of love is long and boring
And written very long ago
It’s full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes
And things we’re all too young to know

But I
I love it when you give me things
And you
You ought to give me wedding rings

And I
I love it when you give me things
And you
You ought to give me wedding rings
You ought to give me wedding rings

Contenu d’accordéon

It’s not the place that I grew up in
It’s not the body I was born with
They’re not the trees that I once played in
That now surround us, us in a prison

Every bird was born with feathers
Every wing was shaped to fly
We spin around ’til we stop all motion
Let the heart move ’til the earth can touch the sky

In my hunger deep in my bones
In a thousand deserted homes
Any time that you feel alone
I will find you where you are
Go where you are

In a garden behind the wall
Spinning coins and I watch them fall
Though I’ve lost all the wherewithal
I will find you where you are
Go where you are

I sing like the earth as you dance on my skin
Then memories release the future
So this living can begin

Not in the ship that charts the heavens
Not in the words that fall like hail stones
Not in the light you disappear in
I’ll be the mirror you can see through

Every bird was born with feathers
Every wing was shaped to fly
We spin around ’til we stop all motion
Let the heart move until the earth can touch the sky

In all the lines that churned your face
In a stretch that can open space
Any place that you leave a trace
I will find you where you are
Go where you are

In a city inside the wall
Where you watched all the embers fall
Though we’ve lost all the wherewithal
I will found you where you are

Go where you build this nest with lot of feathers
Build a world to bring back life
Build the place that holds the future
Can hold the future
For all who come when we are gone
When we are gonespeeee

Walk through the fire
Walk through the fire (walk through the fire)
Through the dust and ashes
While the building crashes
Walk through the flame (walk through the fire)
No trace of indecision
Lion keep his vision clear

Moving out
Across the water
The wet leaves quiver in the heat
Darkness heavy on my shoulder
Smell the smoke, sickly sweet
The body’s weak, the shadow’s strong

Walk through the fire (walk through the fire)
Through the dust and ashes
While the building crashes
Walk through the flame (walk through the fire)
Lion show no sign of fear

Walk through the fire (walk through the fire)
Through the dust and ashes
While the building crashes
Walk through the flame (walk through the fire)
No time for doubt or caution
Taken by the strong emotion
Walk through the fire (walk through the fire)
No trace of indecision
Lion hold his vision clear

(Walk, walk, walk)

Walk through the fire (walk through the fire)
Walking in the path of angel
Walk on down below, walk on down below
Walk on down below, walk on down below

Bol
Bol
Bol ke sach zinda hai
Bol

In terms of time’s heavy storm
Say what you have to say
History holds you time is blown
Say what you have to say

In a silence so strong that it makes you its own
Stand up and speak out

Let the crows call
Let the stones fall
Say what you have to say
Bol zubaan ab tak teri hai

When those rocks break
(Tera sutawaan)
When the dreams break
(Jism hai tera)
Let the words call from within
From within

It can come to strange you
Come to mould and change you
Let the words flow from your lips
Speak your truth now
It’s the only way out
You can be what you can be
Say what you have to say
Bol ke lab azaad hai tere
Bol ke lab azaad hai tere
Bol ke lab azaad hai tere
Bol ke lab azaad hai tere
Bol ke lab azaad hai tere
Bol ke lab azaad hai tere
Bol ke lab azaad hai tere

Aazad hai tere
Wanna drag it and you are rattling inside
(Bol Zubaan ab tak teri hai)
Say what you have to say
(bol)
As so in life you can no longer hide
Say what you have to say
(bol)
Abandon your fear and you bring back your pride
(Aadam)
Stand up, speak out
Aadam bol
Aadam bol
Aaadam

(Tera sutwaan jism hai tera)
Let the crows call
(Tera sutwaan jism hai tera)
Let the stones fall
(Bol ke jaan ab tak teri hai)
Say what you have to say
(Bol ke jaan ab tak teri hai)
(Bol)
You speak your truth now
(Bol)
Its the only way out
(Bol ke lab aazad hai tere)
Let the words flow out of you
(Bol Zubaan ab tak teri hai)
Stand up, speak out
Bol ke sach zinda hai
I dream of birds, birds without wings
Children who grew up to be dangerous things
I was known as the postman, I worked through the night
I made my deliveries sink out of sight

We would wrap them, wrap them up
Anything to shut them up
Had to stitch them, stitch them up
See how they fly
See how they fly

We’d hold them in the center ’till we were all done
We’d turn up the music and have some fun
You’re on your way out, that’s what they were told
And we’d mock them and drug them, ’till our stupor took its hold

We would wrap them, wrap them up
Anything to shut them up
Had to stitch them, stitch them up
See how they fly
See how they fly

Fly out low, some way offshore
The sacking covers up their heads
Don’t want to look into their eyes
As I push them through the open door

Pour fêter les 25 ans (avec beaucoup de retard puisque Peter est TOUJOURS EN RETARD !) de So, Peter Gabriel a décidé de recréer la tournée de l’époque. Les musiciens d’alors sont rappelés (David Sancious et Manu Katché) au côté de ceux qui ne sont jamais partis (David Rhodes et Tony Levin). Petit à petit la Set list évolue pour intégrer des morceaux composés après So. Peter Gabriel intègre même deux inédits, donc un morceau pas fini (le premier du concert). À la fin du concert, juste avant les rappels, So est joué en intégralité et dans l’ordre. 

Concert géant, techniquement parfait, comme d’habitude avec Peter…

4/5

Peter Gabriel a, avec cet album de reprises, décidé d’abandonner les guitares et la batterie et d’utiliser un grand orchestre symphonique. Il en résulte un choix artistique surprenant et la déstructuration totale des arrangements d’origine. En effet, même en connaissant les versions originelles, on a parfois du mal à reconnaître les morceaux que l’on connaît et que l’on aime. Le pire étant peut-être Street Spirit de Radiohead. L’album est lent, affreusement lent, même pour des chansons plutôt rythmées à l’origine comme The Boy In The Bubble. Et sombre, noir, lourd, plein de spleen. Et du coup long, peu varié et répétitif (The Power of the Heart et surtout My Body Is a Cage) ce qui fait que la digestion est rude. Néanmoins cela reste beau, très bien fait et puis c’est Peter qui chante. Quel dommage par contre, que la plus belle des reprises ne soit pas sur l’album mais seulement sur le cd bonus « Waterloo Sunset »… Bref, un projet artistique avec un cahier des charges respecté et poussé à son paroxysme. Rien que pour cela, ce disque mérite le détour.

Tracklist

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be heroes, just for one day
And you, you can be mean
And I, I’ll drink all the time
‘Cause we’re lovers, and that is a fact
Yes we’re lovers, and that is that
Though nothing will keep us together
We could steal time just for one day
We can be heroes for ever and ever
What d’you say?
I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever
Oh we can be Heroes, just for one day
I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be Heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day
I, I can remember (I remember)
Standing, by the wall (by the wall)
And the guns, shot above our heads (over our heads)
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall (nothing could fall)
And the shame, was on the other side
Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever
Then we could be Heroes, just for one day
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
Just for one day
We can be Heroes
We’re nothing, and nothing will help us
Maybe we’re lying, then you better not stay
But we could be safer, just for one day
Oh-oh-oh-ohh, oh-oh-oh-ohh, just for one day
It was a slow day
And the sun was beating
On the soldiers by the side of the road
There was a bright light
A shattering of shop windows
The bomb in the baby carriage
Was wired to the radio
These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all
The way we look to a distant constellation
That’s dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don’t cry, baby, don’t cry
Don’t cry
It was a dry wind
And it swept across the desert
And it curled into the circle of birth
And the dead sand
Falling on the children
The mothers and the fathers
And the automatic earth
These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all, oh yeah
The way we look to a distant constellation
That’s dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don’t cry baby, don’t cry
Don’t cry
It’s a turn-around jump shot
It’s everybody jump start
It’s every generation throws a hero up the pop charts
Medicine is magical and magical is art
Think of the boy in the bubble
And the baby with the baboon heart
And I believe
These are the days of lasers in the jungle
Lasers in the jungle somewhere
Staccato signals of constant information
A loose affiliation of millionaires
And billionaires and baby
These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all, oh yeah
The way we look to a distant constellation
That’s dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don’t cry baby, don’t cry
Don’t cry, don’t cry

I plant the kind of kiss
That wouldn’t wake a baby
On the self-same face
The wouldn’t let me sleep


And the street is singing with my feet
And the dawn gives me a shadow I know to be taller
All down to you dear, everything has changed

My sorry name has made it to graffiti
I was looking for someone to complete me
Not anymore dear, everything has changed
Everything has changed

You make the moon our mirrorball
The street’s an empty stage
The city’s sirens, violins, everything has changed
Everything has changed

So lift off love
So lift off love


We took the town to town last night
We kissed like we invented it
Now I know what every step is for

To lead me to your door
Know that while you sleep
Everything has changed

You make the moon a mirrorball
The street’s an empty stage
The city’s sirens, violins, everything has changed

So lift off love, lift off love
Lift off love, lift off love

I’m my mother’s only one
It’s enough
I wear my garment so it shows
Now you know


Only love is all maroon
Gluey feathers on a flume
Sky is womb and she’s the moon
She’s the moon

I am my mother on the wall
With us all
I move in water, shore to shore
Nothing’s more

Only love is all maroon
Lapping lakes like leary loons
Leaving rope burns, reddish ruse
Reddish ruse

Only love is all maroon
Gluey feathers on a flume
Sky is womb and she’s the moon

She’s the moon

She’s the moon
She’s the moon
She’s the moon
She’s the moon

Mojique sees his village from a nearby hill
Mojique thinks of days before Americans came
He serves the foreigners in growing numbers
He sees the foreigners in fancy houses
He dreams of days that he can still remember now
Mojique holds a package in his quivering hands
Mojique sends the package to the American man
Softly he glides along the streets and alleys
Up comes the wind that makes them run for cover
He feels the time is surely now or never more
The wind in my heart, the wind in my heart
The dust in my head, the dust in my head
The wind in my heart, the wind in my heart
Come to drive them away, drive them away
The wind in my heart, the wind in my heart
The dust in my head, the dust in my head
The wind in my heart, the wind in my heart
Come to drive them away, drive them away
And Mojique buys his equipment in the market place
Mojique plants devices through the free trade zone
He feels the wind is lifting up his people
He calls the wind to guide him on his mission
He knows his friend the wind is always standing by
Mojique smells the wind that, that comes from far away
Mojique waits for news in a quiet place
He feels the presence of the wind beside him
He feels the power of the past behind him
He has the knowledge of the wind to guide him on
The wind in my heart, the wind in my heart
The dust in my head, the dust in my head
The wind in my heart, the wind in my heart
Come to drive them away, drive them away
The wind in my heart, the wind in my heart
The dust in my head, the dust in my head
The wind in my heart, the wind in my heart
Come to drive them away
You look for sun and I look for rain
We’re different people, we’re not the same
The power of the sun
I looked for treetops, you looked for caps
Above the water, where the waves snap back
I flew around the world to bring you back
Ah, the power of the heart
You looked at me and I looked at you
The sleeping heart was shining through,
The wispy cobwebs that we’re breathing through
The power of the heart
I looked at you and you looked at me
I thought of the past, you thought of what could be
I asked you once again to marry me
The power of the heart
Everybody says love makes the world go round
I hear a bubbling and I hear a sound
Of my heart beating and I turn around
And find you standing at the door
You know me I like to dream a lot
Of this and that and what is not
And finally I figured out what was what
It was the power of the heart
You and me we sweat and strain
The result is always the same
You think somehow we’re in a game
The power of the heart
The power of the heart
I think I’m dumb, I know you’re smart
The beating of a purebred heart
I say this to you and it’s not a lark
Marry me today
You know me I like to dream a lot
Of what there is and what there’s not
But mainly I dream of you a lot
The power of your heart
The power of the heart

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

My body is a cage

That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

I’m standing on a stage
Of fear and self doubt
It’s a hollow play
But they’ll clap anyway

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You’re standing next to me
My mind holds the key

I’m living in an age
That calls darkness light
Though my language is dead

Still the shapes fill my head

I’m living in an age
Whose name I don’t know
Though the fear keeps me moving
Still my heart beats so slow

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You’re standing next to me
My mind holds the key
My body is a…

My body is a cage
We take what we’re given
Just because you’ve forgotten

 


That don’t mean you’re forgiven

I’m living in an age
That screams my name at night
But when I get to the doorway
There’s no one in sight

I’m living in an age
They laugh when I’m dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You’re standing next to me
My mind holds the key

Set my spirit free
Set my spirit free
Set my body free
Set my body free


Set my spirit free
Set my body free

The book of love is long and boring
No one can lift the damn thing
It’s full of charts and facts and figures
And instructions for dancing
But I
I love it when you read to me
And you
You can read me anything
The book of love has music in it
In fact that’s where music comes from
Some of it is just transcendental
Some of it is just really dumb
But I
I love it when you sing to me
And you
You can sing me anything
The book of love is long and boring
And written very long ago
It’s full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes
And things we’re all too young to know
But I
I love it when you give me things
And you
You ought to give me wedding rings
And I
I love it when you give me things
And you
You ought to give me wedding rings
You ought to give me wedding rings

Broken windows and empty hallways
A pale dead moon in a sky streaked with gray
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it’s going to rain today


Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles
With frozen smiles to keep love away
Human kindness overflowing
And I think it’s going to rain today

Lonely, lonely
Tin can at my feet
I think I’ll kick it down the street
That’s the way to treat a friend

Bright before me the signs implore me
Help the needy and show them the way
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it’s going to rain today

I, oh, must go on standing
You can’t break that which isn’t yours
I, oh, must go on standing
I’m not my own, it’s not my choice
Be afraid of the lame
They’ll inherit your legs
Be afraid of the old
They’ll inherit your souls
Be afraid of the cold
They’ll inherit your blood
Apres moi, le deluge
After me comes the flood
I must go on standing
You can’t break that which isn’t yours
I, oh, must go on standing
I’m not my own, it’s not my choice
Be afraid of the lame
They’ll inherit your legs
Be afraid of the old
They’ll inherit your souls
Be afraid of the cold
They’ll inherit your blood
Apres moi, le deluge
After me comes the flood
Be afraid of the lame
They’ll inherit your legs
Be afraid of the old
They’ll inherit your souls
Be afraid of the cold
They’ll inherit your blood
Apres moi, le deluge
After me the flood

Sometimes I think that I know
What love’s all about
And when I see the light
I know I’ll be all right


I’ve got my friends in the world
I had my friends
When we were boys and girls
And the secrets came unfurled

City of brotherly love
Place I call home
Don’t turn your back on me
I don’t want to be alone
Love lasts forever

Someone is talking to me
Calling my name
Tell me I’m not to blame
I will not be ashamed of love
Ashamed of love

Sometimes I think that I know

What love’s all about
And when I see the light
I know I’ll be all right, all right

Rows of houses, all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things into position
All these things we’ll one day swallow whole


Fade out again
Fade out again

This machine will, will not communicate
These thoughts and the strain I am under
Be a world child, form a circle
Before we all go under

Fade out again
Fade out again

Cracked eggs, dead birds, scream as they fight for life
I can feel death, can see its beady eyes
All these things into position
All these things we’ll one day swallow whole

Fade out again

Fade out again

Immerse your soul in love
Immerse your soul in love

Dirty old river, must you keep rolling, flowing into the night?
People so busy, make me feel dizzy, taxi light shines so bright
But I don’t need no friends

As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset, I am in paradise

(Sha-la-la) Every day I look at the world from my window
(Sha-la-la) But chilly, chilly is the evening time
Waterloo sunset’s fine (Waterloo sunset’s fine)

Terry meets Julie, Waterloo Station, every Friday night
But I am so lazy, don’t want to wander, I stay at home at night
But I don’t feel afraid
As long as I gaze on Waterloo sunset, I am in paradise

(Sha-la-la) Every day I look at the world from my window

(Sha-la-la) But chilly, chilly is the evening time
Waterloo sunset’s fine (Waterloo sunset’s fine)

Millions of people swarming like flies ’round Waterloo underground
But Terry and Julie cross over the river where they feel safe and sound
And they don’t need no friends
As long as they gaze on Waterloo sunset they are in paradise

Waterloo sunset’s fine
Waterloo sunset’s fine
Waterloo sunset’s fine

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.

5/5

Up… Dix ans d’attente, et ca vallait le coup. Pas besoin d’y aller par quatre chemins : le disque est excellent. Les chansons sont délicieuses à souhait… Les mots me manquent un peu pour décrire la beauté de Darkness, Sky Blue, The Barry William Show ou encore ce qui est peut etre la plus belle chanson écrite par Peter : Darkness ! C’est beau, c’est mélodique, c’est sombre, c’est envoutant… du bonheur en digital !

Tracklist

(Gabriel)

The wretched desert takes its form, the jackal proud and tight
In search of you, I feel my way, through the slowest heaving night
Whatever fear invents, I swear it make no sense
I reach through the border fence
Come down, come talk to me

In the swirling, curling storm of desire unuttered words hold fast
With reptile tongue, the lightning lashes towers built to last
Darkness creeps in like a thief and offers no relief
Why are you shaking like a leaf
Come on, come talk to me

Ah please talk to me
Won’t you please talk to me
We can unlock this misery
Come on, come talk to me

{Chorus 1:}
I did not come to steal
This all is so unreal
Can’t you show me how you feel now
Come on, come talk to me
Come talk to me [x2]

The earthly power sucks shadowed milk from sleepy tears undone
From nippled skin as smooth as silk the bugles blown as one
You lie there with your eyes half closed like there’s no-one there at all
There’s a tension pulling on your face
Come on, come talk to me

Won’t you please talk to me
If you’d just talk to me
Unblock this misery
If you’d only talk to me

{Chorus 2:}
Don’t you ever change your mind
Now your future’s so defined
And you act so deaf and blind
[And you act so deaf so blind]
Come on, come talk to me
Come talk to me [x2]

I can imagine the moment
Breaking out through the silence
All the things that we both might say
And the heart it will not be denied
‘Til we’re both on the same damn side
All the barriers blown away

I said please talk to me
Won’t you please come talk to me
Just like it used to be
Come on, come talk to me
I did not come to steal
This all is so unreal
Can you show me how you feel now
Come on, come talk to me
Come talk to me [x2]

I said please talk to me
If you’d just talk to me
Unblock this misery
If you’d only talk to me
[Chorus 2]

(Gabriel)

[Aaaaahi, byeeee]

So, you know how people are
When it’s all gone much too far
The way their minds are made
Still, there’s something you should know
That I could not let show
That fear of letting go

And in this moment, I need to be needed
With this darkness all around me, I like to be liked
In this emptiness and fear, I want to be wanted
‘Cause I love to be loved
I love to be loved [x2]
Yes, I love to be loved

I cry the way that babies cry
The way they can’t deny
The way they feel
Words, they climb all over you
‘Til they uncover you
From where you hide

And in this moment, I need to be needed
When my self-esteem is sinking, I like to be liked
In this emptiness and fear,
I want to be wanted
‘Cause I love to be loved
I love to be loved [x2]
Oh I love to be loved

This old familiar craving
I’ve been here before, this way of behaving
Don’t know who the hell I’m saving anymore
Let it pass let it go let it leave
From the deepest place I grieve
This time I believe

And I let go [x2]
I can let go of it
Though it takes all the strength in me
And all the world can see
I’m losing such a central part of me
I can let go of it
You know I mean it
You know that I mean it
I recognize how much I’ve lost
But I cannot face the cost
‘Cause I love to be loved

Yes I love to be loved
I love to be loved
[x3]

I love to be loved
I love to be loved
Yes I love to be loved

(Gabriel)

I caught sight of my reflection
I caught it in the window
I saw the darkness in my heart
I saw the signs of my undoing
They had been there from the start
And the darkness still has work to do
The knotted chord’s untying
They’re heated and they’re holy
Oh they’re sitting there on high
So secure with everything they’re buying

{Chorus:}
In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
We wanted the union
Oh the union of the woman
The woman and the man

My grip is surely slipping
I think I’ve lost my hold
Yes, I think I’ve lost my hold
I cannot get insurance anymore
They don’t take credit, only gold
Is that a dagger or a crucifix I see
You hold so tightly in your hand
And all the while the distance grows between you and me
I do not understand

[Chorus]

At my request, you take me in
In that tenderness, I am floating away
No certainty, nothing to rely on
Holding still for a moment
What a moment this is
Oh for a moment of forgetting, a moment of bliss
Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

I can hear the distant thunder
Of a million unheard souls
Of a million unheard souls
Watch each one reach for creature comfort
For the filling of their holes

In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
In the blood of Eden
We wanted the union
Of the woman and the man

In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
I feel the man in the woman
And the woman in the man

In the blood of Eden
Lie the woman and the man
I feel the man in the woman
And the woman in the man


In the blood of Eden
We’ve done everything we can
In the blood of Eden
Saw the end as we began
With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man
It was all for the union
Oh, the union of the woman, the woman and the man.

[extra lyrics from the « film mix »]

The blood of Eden keeps running through me
running through my veins
the blood of Eden keeps rushing through me
when I’m sure there’s none that remains
the blood of Eden keeps running through me
I can feel it in my bones
that blood of Eden keeps rushing through me
taking back what it owns

(Gabriel)

Stand Back!
Stand Back!

What are those dogs doing sniffing at my feet
They’re on to something, picking up
Picking up this heat, this heat

Give me steam
And how you feel to make it real
Real as anything you’ve seen
Get a life with this dreamer’s dream

You know your culture from your trash
You know your plastic from your cash
When I lose sight of the track
You know the way back
But I know you

You know your stripper from your paint
You know your sinner from your saint
Whenever heaven’s doors are shut
You kick them open but
I know you

Give me steam
And how you feel to make it real
Real as any place you’ve been
Get a life with the dreamer’s dream

Stand back!
Stand back!
Can’t you see I’ve lost control I’m getting indiscreet
You’re moving in so close ’til I’m picking up
Picking up this heat, this heat

Give me steam
And how you feel to make it real
Real as anything you’ve seen
Get a life with this dreamer’s dream

You know your green from your red
You know the quick from the dead
So much better than the rest
You think you’ve been blessed
But I know you

You know your ladder from your snake
You know the throttle from the brake
You know your straight line from a curve
You’ve got a lot of nerve
But I know you

Give me steam
And how you feel to make it real
Real as any place you’ve been
Get a life with the dreamer’s dream

Everybody nosedive
Hold your breath, count to five
Backslap, boobytrap,
Cover it up in bubblewrap
Room shake, earthquake
Find a way to stay awake
It’s going to blow, it’s going to break
This is more than I can take

Oh yeah, I need steam
Feel the steam all around me
Ah you’re turning up the heat
When I start to dream aloud
See you move your hands and feet
Won’t you step into this cloud of steam
This steam

Give me steam
And how you feel to make it real
Real as anything you’ve seen
Get a life with this dreamer’s dream

Help me yeah
Ready to steam out the log jam
Stir crazy from the freezer to the boil
Water’s bubbling, it’s b..b..b..bubbling
bubbling [x4]
like it’s coming to a boil
Give me steam, lady
Give me steam around me now
Aah coming alive [x2]
Said give me some steam

(Gabriel)

Only Us [x3]

It wasn’t in the words that kept sticking in their throats
It wasn’t with the angels in their quilted coats
These battered wings still kick up dust
Seduced by the noise and the bright things that glisten
I knew all the time I should shut up and listen
And I’m finding my way home from the great escape

The further on I go, oh the less I know
I can find only us breathing
Only us sleeping
Only us dreaming
Only us

I hear you calling me
Yes I hear you calling me
Home from the great escape
Yes I can read you loud and clear

The further on I go, oh the less I know
Friend or foe, there’s only us

The further on I go, oh the less I know
I can find only us breathing
Only us sleeping
Only us dreaming
Only us

I’m coming home again, home again
And I hear you calling me home again
I am coming home again

Only us [x8]

(Gabriel)

River, river carry me on
Living river carry me on
River, river carry me on
To the place where I come from

So deep, so wide, will you take me on your back for a ride
If I should fall, would you swallow me deep inside

River, show me how to float
I feel like I’m sinking down
Thought that I could get along
But here in this water
My feet won’t touch the ground
I need something to turn myself around

Going away, away towards the sea
River deep, can you lift up and carry me
Oh roll on though the heartland
‘Til the sun has left the sky
River, river carry me high
‘Til the washing of the water make it all all right
Let your waters reach me like she reached me tonight

Letting go, it’s so hard
The way it’s hurting now
To get this love untied
So tough to stay with thing
‘Cause if I follow through
I face what I denied
I get those hooks out of me
And I take out the hooks that I sunk deep in your side
Kill that fear of emptiness, loneliness I hide

River, oh river, river running deep
Bring me something that will let me get to sleep
In the washing of the water will you take it all away
Bring me something to take this pain away

(Gabriel)

Something in me, dark and sticky
All the time it’s getting strong
No way of dealing with this feeling
Can’t go on like this too long

{Chorus:}
This time you’ve gone too far [x3]
I told you [x4]
This time you’ve gone too far [x3]
I told you [x4]

Don’t talk back
Just drive the car
Shut your mouth
I know what you are
Don’t say nothing
Keep your hands on the wheel
Don’t turn around
This is for real
Digging in the dirt
Stay with me, I need support
I’m digging in the dirt
To find the places I got hurt
Open up the places I got hurt

The more I look, the more I find
As I close on in, I get so blind
I feel it in my head, I feel it in my toes
I feel it in my sex, that’s the place it goes

[Chorus]

I’m digging in the dirt
Stay with me I need support
I’m digging in the dirt
To find the places I got hurt
To open up the places I got hurt

Digging in the dirt
To find the places we got hurt
[x7]

(Gabriel)

From the pain come the dream
From the dream come the vision
From the vision come the people
From the people come the power
From this power come the change

(Gabriel)

[Aah, yeah]

Jump in the water

Sweet little princess
Let me introduce his frogness
You alone can get him singing
He’s all puffed up, wanna be your king
Oh you can do it
C’mon [x6]
Lady kiss that frog

Splash, dash heard your call
Bring you back your golden ball
He’s gonna dive down in the deep end
He’s gonna be just like your best friend
So what’s one little kiss
One tiny little touch
Aaah, he’s wanting it so much
I swear that this is royal blood
Running through my skin
Oh can you see the state I’m in
Kiss it better, Kiss it better
[Kiss that frog]

Get it into your royal head
He’s living with you, he sleeps in your bed
Can’t you hear beyond the croaking
Don’t you know that I’m not joking
Aaah, you think you won’t
I think you will
Don’t you know that this tongue can kill
C’mon [x6]
Lady kiss that frog

Let him sit beside you
Eat right off your plate
You don’t have to be afraid
There’s nothing here to hate
Ah, princess you might like it
If you lower your defence
Kiss that frog, and you will
Get your prince [x2]
[Huh!]

Jump in the water, c’mon baby jump in with me
Jump in the water, c’mon baby get wet with me
Jump in the water, c’mon baby jump in with me
Jump in the water, c’mon baby get wet [get wet, get wet]

Kiss that frog, lady kiss that frog [x4]

Jump in the water, c’mon baby jump in with me [x3]
Jump in the water, c’mon baby get wet
[get wet, get wet] [x6]

(Gabriel)

I stood in this unsheltered place
‘Til I could see the face behind the face
All that had gone before had left no trace

Down by the railway siding
In our secret world, we were colliding
All the places we were hiding love
What was it we were thinking of?

So I watch you wash your hair
Underwater, unaware
And the plane flies through the air
Did you think you didn’t have to choose it
That I alone could win or lose it
In all the places we were hiding love
What was it we were thinking of?

In this house of make believe
Divided in two, like Adam and Eve
You put out and I receive

Down by the railway siding
In our secret world, we were colliding
In all the places we were hiding love
What was it we were thinking of?

Oh the wheel is turning spinning round and round
And the house is crumbling but the stairways stand

With no guilt and no shame, no sorrow or blame
Whatever it is, we are all the same

Making it up in our secret world [x3]
Shaking it up
Breaking it up
Making it up in our secret world

Seeing things that were not there
On a wing on a prayer
In this state of disrepair

Down by the railway siding
In our secret world, we were colliding
In all the places we were hiding love
What was it we were thinking of?
