Deuxième album dans la même année, j’ai clairement moins accroché à celui-là. Peut-être parce qu’il est venu trop rapidement après Song For A Friend ?

Tracklist

Truth can be difficult to take and sometimes you should wait, before you speak
Before, saying what you feel or sharing your thoughts, truth or lie

I know you never meant to lose it, but something happened in the past, long ago
They never should have sent you roses, the flower never seems to last, so long, so long

The memory that’s haunting you will pass
Give it time, you’ll see
Trust in me

How much how much can you take
And how long can you wait, to be alive

I know you never meant to lose it, but something happened in the past, long ago
They never should have sent you roses, the flower never seems to last, so long, so long

See the most beautiful girl in the world
Staring straight at you, what to do

How long, how long will you wait
And how much can you take before you go
The suicide line

It’s a game game game game , it’s a game game game game, it’s a game game game game, it’s a game game game game

Please, do it not for me
You should know, it’ll abuse your soul
The truth is that i, i can’t seem I can’t seem to cry
I don’t believe all of it’s true
I transmit this call onto you

Yes there’s a million reasons why and no one ever knows you’ve tried, until it’s too late
Is it too late?
You got an awful lot of things to say and the problem is that nobody’s listening anyway, any day

See the most beautiful girl in the world
Staring straight at you, what to do

It’s a game game game game, it’s a game game game game, it’s a game game game game, it’s a game game game game

The suicide line

I see a light, shining on me, it’s fading
And I feel the life training out of me
And I’m a long way from home and I can’t sleep at night
I try but I can’t sleep.

I’m say stay til the end, but I don’t feel so good
A thousand times a day
And my hands are shaking, but I’m here for good
Don’t worry about me.

I won’t be leaving
I don’t need another morning
I’m taken heed, I hear the calling
I don’t want you to see me crawling
To the next life, next life, next life.
 
I’ve been forgiving
Make aware of my feeling, make well aware
In back and all directions, but I’m standing still
Waiting for my alibi.
 
I won’t be leaving
I don’t need another morning
I’m taken heed, I hear the calling
I don’t want you to see me crawling
To the next life, next life, next life.
 

The snow lies on Tenessee mountains

dark nights, happen too soon

blue skies are a distant memory

and I’ve got nowhere to hide, from you

 

Until the summer I will wait

until the summer I will wait

maybe my loss can be my gain, so I’ll wait for you

until the summer

 

I’m three times higher than the stars

trying to find out where you are

so I just hold on to this memory

all day long cause I

I can see and I can’t breathe, without it

 

Until the summer I will wait

until the summer I will wait

maybe my loss can be my gain, so I’ll wait for you

until the summer

 

Until the summer I will wait

until the summer I will wait

maybe my loss can be my gain, so I’ll wait for you

until the summer

 

I will wait, here each day for you, until

the cold and unapproachable know

what it is to feel

 

Forever and always, I’ll try

Forever and always, I’ll try

 

You and I are the same

cold and unapproachable and distant

and no one is to blame

it’s desire on the whole, that’s non existent

it’s no mystery at all

it’s obvious and as plain as can be

like the nose on your face

the more we try, the more we can survive, without it

one another

 

Forever and always, I’ll try (life can’t hide it)

Forever and always, I’ll try (you can’t disguise it)

cause this world belongs, to those who are strong

and stand to face it

and your enemy, will cease to be

you’re almost erase it

just worship the sun

 

Forever and always, I’ll try (life can’t hide it)

Forever and always, I’ll try (you can’t disguise it)

cause this world belongs, to those who are strong

and stand to face it

and your enemy, will cease to be

you’re almost erase it

just worship the sun

 

 

I forget
It’s all so vague
Time and distance
Makes me think of home
And it makes me wonder
Makes me think of home
I recall
These same four walls
I felt surrounded
Close my eyes
And thougth of light
Nowhere to run
I can’t forget
No time to explain
It’s all regret
No broken vows
No words left unsaid
No crying
No thoughts in your head
No fear in me
No blame no hurt
No walking away
No crying that’s absurd
It all seems so distant
Days grow longer
And it makes me wonder
Makes me think of home
It all seems so distant
Days grow longer
It makes me wonder
Makes me think of home

I bought a house in the highlands

I have a life and three children

I’d like to share my thoughts and feelings with you

if I may

 

Well I came here to get away from southern city life

I’ enough and started losing my whole appetite for life

decided one day, it’s time to walk away

never too late, to get up and make the day

 

I live in hope but don’t have time to make the most of it

One thing I’m sure of is that I will make some sacrifices

I guess I need a break, get up and face the day

shout out, I’ve had enough

I’m packing my bags and off

amen to that

 

amen (amen to that) x4

 

I promised myself never to say never

it’s hard to know just what the future holds

the life I had is floating down the river

I’m standing here waiting for the next boat

 

I wrote a thousand words explaining how I feel today

I’ll write a thousand more tomorrow and a thousand more the next day

and one day you’ll read the book, come in and have a look

at my whole sorry life

good luck goodbye goodnight

amen to  that

 

amen (amen to that) x12

 

You got something on your mind

and some things take a long time

an eternity of years

 

You sleep in the day time, come alive at night

with drugs and alcohol

feeling your blood

takes you on a journey

oh if only, you could escape, from this one

 

And forget it, it forgives you not

that’s all you’ve got

and you live in a way

think your invisible

but you’re not invisible, you see

 

Underline soul, underline pain, underline sin

understand why only you know where to begin

haven’t found hope heaven lone knows where to begin

a life worth living, is worth living

 

And so on reflection, you say

this is my world

and it’s my world, that I live in

So to anyone out there, who’s listening

you should hear me, not fear me

 

Underline soul, underline pain, underline sin

understand why only you know where to begin

haven’t found hope heaven lone knows where to begin

a life worth living, is worth living

 

Underline soul, underline pain, underline sin

 

Don’t wait (for me)

 

Don’t wait for me 

so finally

a twisted thought

that can’t be bought

 

(And) you can’t understand 

what makes my world

go round and round

just take my word.

 

Don’t wait for me

(I want you)

so endlessly

 

Don’t wait for me

(I want you now)

it’s not for me

 

(And) you can’t understand

it’s not for you

 

Don’t wait for me 

so finally

a twisted thought

that can’t be bought

 

(And) you can’t understand 

what makes my world

go round and round

just take my word.

 

Don’t wait for me

See the world
A different way, maybe
Philosophise
Boy genius the hope of mankind

The monsters underneath the bed
As spaceman spiff flies overhead
Is not enough

A time machine
A cardboard box
A stripy furball’s homework plot
The teacher’s joy

A tiger and a boy
Whose days are just packed with fun
When minds go out to play
It’s different every day

What no one sees
Is the invisible world is good
Where make believe
Is the place i would be if i could

But Susie is the girl for this
The waterbombs, the playing tricks

She beats them all
And Calvin with his best friend Hobbes
Just playing games forget the jobs
They’re not as fun

A tiger and a boy
Whose days are just packed with fun
When minds go out to play
It’s different every day

Little boy
With your soft and furry friend
He’s just a toy
But no one will ever guess

The secret life of unaccepted ones

carefully hidden from your view, buy you knew

it was a secret worth reflecting on

a life’s work in one place

that no one knows

 

I’d like to ride off the sunset

like a cowboy, like a cowboy

just disappear into the wild west

like a cowboy, like a cowboy

like a cowboy

 

I’d like to trust but it’s too dangerous

and I can’t risk anyone knowing about

I only wish there was place for us

to call home, call home

a loving home

 

I’d like to ride off the sunset

like a cowboy, like a cowboy

just disappear into the wild west

like a cowboy, like a cowboy

like a cowboy

Très très chouette. De belles chansons, une ambiance calme et plutôt acoustique et une très chouette reprise de Pink Floyd. 

Tracklist

Alone in a bar in a old part of town 
Facing the house where Anne Frank Lived
Rain hitting of the window pane
And dancing in the street like children
Memories of war seem long gone
Something bout the atmosphere
Felt like I was in an old movie somewhere
And over on the shelf lay an old book

Looked like it had been there for ages
Stains on the pages
Parts all rewritten and some pages missing
The book had clearly been read
Many times before

Slipped it inside my man bag
Not really sure if he’d happened to see it
I tried to look away when the bar man looked at me

I guess he had seen that before
And simply ignored it
Laugh on the inside
As I tried to hide it
The book mark was worn at the edge
I guess this book had been read
Many times

Looked like it had been there for ages
Stains on the pages
Parts all rewritten and some pages missing
The book had clearly been read
Many times before

I don’t think about you much these days
It’s over twenty years now, since we went separate ways
I hope you’ve found some place to graze
And someone who’s a slave, to your every need
And over my dead body I’ll see you again
Pretending we were friends
Over my dead body, looking down on me
Pretending to grieve

All That time you knew it, something had to give
Struggling to live, facing up to it
You had your chance and blew it
You threw it away
And who would have thought it
You had the whole thing figured

And you living with regrets
Smoking cigarettes and staring into space
And asking where it all went wrong
And why am I alone
Saying God what have I done, so wrong

Too much, no forgiveness and all that monkey business
What is done is done
Over my dead body
You might think it funny

At the time you knew it, all the world’s a stage
And you were getting laid and calling everybody baby
You had your chance but screw it, you threw it away
And who would have thought it
You had the whole thing figured

All That time you knew it, something had to give
Struggling to live, facing up to it
You had your chance and blew it
You threw it away
And who would have thought it
You had the whole thing figured

So, here we are back at the atart
One angry and one slightly scarred
And one on the outside, asking why ?
Why? A good question, I don’t know
I hear it’s offfen, I Live in hope
That one day you’ll hear what I say

Cause when you’re down and out, there’s no one to help
You just have to sit there feeling sorry for yourself
And the rhyme and reason should be clear, but it ain’t
But in the cold day of light
You won’t see me

Fire, it always burns brightly at night
It’s burning inside you, that’s why
You cannot sleep
Or greet the day
And every day seems like the last one
And it ain’t too much fun
Can’t you learn
Learn to forgive and forget

Don’t you think it’s foolish to burn all of the bridges?
Don’t you have a better plan that’s based on forgiveness
I guess the weight you carry on your shoulder’s today
Will ease given time
Well that wish is mine

Don’t you think it’s foolish to burn all of the bridges?
Don’t you have a better plan that’s based on forgiveness
I guess the weight you carry on your shoulder’s today
Will ease given time
Well that wish is mine

If you look over there, that’s where I was born
And if you close you eyes and visualise,
you’ll see me kick a football down the road
I had a happy childhood, I always loved to dance
And all the boys would make a fool out of me
But the girls would take a chance
And it all feels like yesterday
It’s amazing how the time just drift away
I love sea air

If you look over there, that’s where my old ma worked
Every day at 5 am she’d get up
So that she could take care of us
There was never a day going by
Where we could not rely on our old mam
i can’t imagine life wothout her,
I can’t imagine now
She made everything perfect
She was just the best mam in the world
Don’t you love sea air

Oh oh, oh oh oh

If you look over there, that’s where i will die
I’ll take this old chair of mine and drive into the sea
And all the fishes they will laugh at me
And seagulls they will snap at me
But I , aye, I will find my peace again
Oh I love the sea air
Oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh I love the sea air

Only the lonely, know how i feel today
Crying, I’m dying, deep down within my soul
Now when I look at me, just can’t see myself anymore
How long is too long
I’ll never know for sure

Lord there must be something
Must be something more than this
I don’t think that I can take it anymore
Oh no

Careful, it’s loaded
You’ll cause the crime of the century
And I will expose it
If you hang around and wait for me
Cause I’m just a man, no more or no less
And I tried my best but failed it seems
And only the lonely know how I feel today

Lord there must be something
Must be something more than this
I don’t think that I can take it anymore
Oh no

Is there no way out of this
This is no way to live
I fight everyone, I fight on my own
Fight for myself, I’m helpless

Lord there must be something
Must be something more than this
I don’t think that I can take it anymore
Oh no

Only the lonely, know how i feel today

If you find the will then I’ll find the way
Cause those things you need are never too far away
For some it’s too tough, for others it’s too late
I don’t want to see you making that mistake

You have your feet on solemn ground, but know that you’ll be fine
Cause I won’t let those demons get to you
I’ll help you when you’re low and lift you from the ground
And hold you really close until you calm down

Cause sometimes what you need is not so far away
Even if right now it doesn’t seem that way
So while you’re pacing up and down and talking to yourself
Do a little dance to see if that helps

It’s fun, to laugh, smile a little , it will pass
There’s no shame, to feel afraid
The fear will fade away, just like yesterday

And look at your own self, as someone who’s beyond help
I used to feel that same way
And don’t analyse the bad points and hear them though the loud noise
In your head

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh yeah

And while you’re pacing up and down and talking to yourself
Do a little dance to see if that helps

It’s fun, to laugh, smile a little , it will pass
And say no, to it all
And somehow you just take control

And look at your own self, as someone who’s beyond help
And alone
And don’t analyse the bad points
Remember that the good things
Only come to those, who fight to win the day

Ah ha, yeah yeah

A thousand years of silence is what i need
Let it be
Slipping, sliding, never really saying what you mean
just echoing

A picture paints a thousand words or more
You always paint a picture to ignore
The more you say, the more I think
Who on earth is listening to you
It isn’t me

Reeling, writhing
All of this bad timing, don’t you see
Let it be
Backseat driving
trying to ease my mind and get some peace
I’d give anything for this

You see the pained look on my face
The darkness round my eyes from stress and strain
I say again
Take a break to stop and think
Be hero or be heroine but please
Let it be

A picture paints a thousand words or more
You always paint a picture to ignore
The more you say, the more I think
Who on earth is listening to you
It isn’t me

It isn’t me

Trying to read the signs
Don’t you know your own mind
Just live each day to day
As you were
Do just as you please
Take some time to grieve

It’s a lie
I hope you see it is
There’s a line , they say you never cross it
They see you like
Parallel souls, that never seem to meet

You were made this way
Unique one and only
Shining like a light
In the mist

More than just a glow
omni parent, ever knowing
You broke the mold

Is that why, you olways fail to see it
There’s a line , they say you never cross it
You’re not alone
Parallel souls, that never seem to meet

Hey I
i know you know so don’t say that you don’t
Why aye, at first you said you see it now you don’t
Cries, will go unheard unless you save a life
Nothing will seem right
It’s a suprise to you\i see this

Parallel Souls that never seem to meet
Parallel Souls that never seem to meet
Parallel Souls that never seem to meet
Parallel Souls that

Li da di , li da day, li da di, yeah yeah

Am i little too young to be waiting up all night?
I should be out having fun and getting home before the sunrise
What you’d expect me to say , when this is how you behave
It happens time and time again
I’m not about to become just another one of your tried and failed

It might seem like I am telling you no
Sometime you gotta know which way the wind blows
Then brace yourself, for the storm

Li da di , li da day, li da di, yeah yeah
Ah ah ah
yeah yeah

Ah ah ah
Ah ah ah

Li da di , li da day, li da di, yeah yeah

You might think that I’m saying all this, it don’t mean anything
it’s just a shot across the bow
But from this moment on I’m not going to be a you tried and failed

Li da di , li da day, li da di, yeah yeah
Ah ah ah
yeah yeah

Ah ah ah
Ah ah ah

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun

Along the Long Road and on down the Causeway
Do they still meet there by the Cut

There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps
Running before times took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
With friends surrounded
The nights of wonder

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force of some inner tide

At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There’s a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Though down this road we’ve been so many times

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river

Forever and ever

J’ai cet album, et foi d’Administrateur-éminent-tout-plein, je m’en vais vous en parler sous peu !

Tracklist

Real life isn’t always what you want
Isn’t always what you need
The fear I express in what I write
In such a way as to believe it
I hope you know I mean it when I say take it slow
Why? cause you need to feel it in your soul
So take it slow man
Sometimes in a different state of mind
I seem to feel things more
It’s no lie, that given space and time
All the pieces fall, into place
I hope you know I mean it when I say take it slow
Why? cause you need to feel it in your soul
Take it slow
You’ll have everything you want
Real life feeling
All you want, all you need
Freedom
I hope you know I mean it when I say take it slow
Why? cause you need to feel it in your soul
So take it slow
 
 
The sun is shining through the trees, I’m gazing at the sky
Not long ago the winter freeze was taking its toll on me
And there are people all around me, struggling to make ends meet
While those who are responsible are living down on easy street
They didn’t cause it, we only said they did
They got it wrong and we have to pay for it
They sold a lie and then got away with it
Cause it’s easier that way
Easier that way
If there’s justice in the world I guess
It must be hard to see
We should focus on togetherness
It’s the only way to change things
It’s not easy staying faithful
To hold on to belief
When your whole damn world’s been stolen and you’re trying to catch the thief
They didn’t cause it we only said they did
They got it wrong and we have to pay for it
They sold a lie and then got away with it
Cause it’s easier that way, easier that way
Why in the world do our leaders turn away from it
Knowing full well that we all need a cure for it
Time and again the poor people pay for it
Cause its easier that way, easier that way
Ok let’s take a moment to reflect
They didn’t cause it, we only said they did
They got it wrong and we have to pay for it
They sold a lie and then got away with it
Why in the world do our leaders turn away from it
Knowing full well that we all need a cure for it
Time and again the poor people pay for it
Cause its easier that way
Easier that way
Could you turn it off for a second?
Chasing rainbows, grieving angels
Timeless moments of broken silence
I’ve been on the road so long
I keep a picture of you here, inside
No horizon, forgets me, forgets me
Follow the lie
What’s the use of worrying about it
You always have a song to sing
Somewhere that your hopes belong and fears don’t win
They can never win
Focus on the life you have
Walking that fine line between what’s good and bad
Trying to find the courage and learn to be still
Learn to be still
Chasing rainbows, no surprises
Just looking out and hoping for
Someone who’s in need of love
Keeping your hopes alive
Long before it is too late
Follow the lie
What’s the use of worrying about it
You always have a song to sing
Somewhere that your hopes belong and fears don’t win
They can never win
Focus on the life you have
Walking that fine line between what’s good and bad
Trying to find the courage and learn to be still
Learn to be still
Chasing rainbows
No surprises

For some unknown reason
I’ve been shouting in my sleep
Losing concentration
And I’m shaking like a leaf
Harbouring feelings of
Not being bold enough
I hope that I can find the strength
To get from underneath
This emotion???
For some unknown reason
I’ve been shouting in my sleep
Losing concentration
And I’m shaking like a leaf
Harbouring feelings of
Not being bold enough
I hope that I can find the strength
To get from underneath
This emotion

Lately, you’ve seen the best of me
Maybe, i’ve nothing left to give
Time just takes it’s toll
Life tells you to go
Love it fades away
Why? it’s hard to say
Don’t see it as the end it’s the start of something new
If a feeling lies within
Then Keep it close to you
Allow yourself to be and go at your own place
Be Patient and be true and wait for better days
Sorry, if i don’t share regret
I don’t feel it’s all been meaningless
People come and go
Feelings fade and grow
Don’t see it as the end it’s the start of something new
If a feeling lies within
Then Keep it close to you
Allow yourself to be and go at your own place
Be Patient and be true and wait for better days

What’s the use of worrying, won’t change a thing

that look of anxiety, when the door bell rings

time and time again you say, you know better

one things that your friends all claim, to the letter

 

she don’t feel so loved

and the longer you wait the worse it becomes

she don’t feel so loved

and you feel like here’s nobody listening

and given time, any given place

you can feel that life is escaping you passing you bye

she don’t feel so loved

and you’re stuck in the middle

 

you’re not gonna waste your life, anymore

looking at the left and right, love or war

you really got me freaking out

hurting hating, your soul’s on fire

can’t put it out

 

she don’t feel so loved

and the longer you wait the worse it becomes

she don’t feel so loved

and you feel like here’s nobody listening

and given time, any given place

you can feel that life is escaping you passing you byes don’t feel so loved

and you’re stuck in the middle

 

maybe when he time comes, you’ll awaken

step outside yourself, looking in

you seem caught between the old and new

nobody can change things for you

like it or not, that’s just the way it is

don’t be taken for a fool

 

she don’t feel so loved

and the longer you wait the worse it becomes

she don’t feel so loved

and you feel like here’s nobody listening

and given time, any given place

you can feel that life is escaping you passing you byes don’t feel so loved

and you’re stuck in the middle

 

She sleeps alone to forget all
She hurts so much, in dreams she cries
She sleeps alone, her world has gone
Rhianne x3
You’ve got to belong again
She wanted more than he could give
She cries inside
But no one wants to know
Cause they all told her so
Rhianne x3
You’ve got to belong again
Life must go on
You’ll find your way in time
Don’t be afraid to feel alive
You’ve got to belong again
Rhianne x3
You’ve got to belong again

She was put on earth to complicate my life
To question the decision that i made
To be there where i feel alone at night
And when i wake
She knows every choice i make i make for her
And without a doubt it only makes things worse
When i ask her get no answer that means no
And that’s for sure
I’m aware that i can only go so far
And afraid to reach the point of no return
The reactions are instinctive and in live
With life resigned, what’s sure his mind
She’s a queen
She’s a queen
She’s a queen
She never tells me what been on her mind
I just look around to answers all the time
There’s a million different reasons and i try so hard to find them
Just because, she’s the one
She’s a queen, much more than a lady
She’s a queen, she will always be my baby
She’s a queen, there could never be another one
She’s a queen, always
Can’t imagine life without her
Since we met it just gets better
There could never be a way
I could ever just forget her
From the first day i would show
And it hasn’t change since then
My life was so unclear
And now it all makes sense again
I would struggle to find anyone
Who has any given reason
Why i shouldn’t feel the same
Why i shouldn’t keep believe in
There’s a million different reasons
And i try so hard to find them
Just because, she’s the one
She’s a queen, much more than a lady
She’s a queen, she will always be my baby
She’s a queen, there could never be another one
She’s a queen, always
Always, always, always, always

Whatever happened to, people you meet and never see again

is it the end or just the beginning

into a different life

making new mistakes always wondering

if a new life is something worth having

Now I got something new to understand

I’ve got something I can’t comprehend

I need someone who can help me out

it’s all so simple, let’s all shout it out

Whatever happened to, people you meet and never see again

is it the end or just the beginning

Whatever happened to, people you meet and never see again

is it the end or just the beginning

 

She masks her faith

hides it from the world

there’s too much at stake

she made that mistake before

the truth sets you free

but not in the world she sees

 

In love, in life I want to see it all, all for myself

No need for lies, it’s all I’m living for

just to be free

Reading the signs, but no one knows where or why

saying so long to the days, she needed an alibi

you can shoot me down in flames if you want

the decision is yours to make

I just see things differently

I feel it another way

 

In love, in life I want to see it all, all for myself

No need for lies, it’s all I’m living for

just to be free

 

Look and you’ll see it in my eyes, keeping my hopes alive

in truth I might be lonely all my life

but at least I’ll be free

Fight for freedom

 

In love, in life I want to see it all, all for myself

No need for lies, it’s all I’m living for

just to be free

 

 

She sold her life, a few times every night

and no use to complain, there was nowhere she could hide

the reason was the game

there’s no choice you have to play

and all you’re left with is your soul

 

It’s the life of someone, equal under god

it’s the life of someone, whether you like it or not

you don’t have to agree, cause there are two sides you and me

I’m not too proud to ask for help

for the life of someone else

 

To live, in shame, bout to know you’re not to blame

and your muted screams, cause the walls are closing in

it’s not some romantic tale, it’s a piece of living hell

you can wish, but never tell

 

It’s the life of someone, equal under god

it’s the life of someone, whether you like it or not

you don’t have to agree, cause there are two sides you and me

I’m not too proud to ask for help

for the life of someone else

 

To behold and to belong

to be faithful to all

for my love of everything

and my mama back home

if she could see me like this

she would die a thousand deaths

if there was something I could give

to make this change it

 

It’s the life of someone, equal under god

it’s the life of someone, whether you like it or not

you don’t have to agree, cause there are two sides you and me

I’m not too proud to ask for help

for the life of someone else

 

I know where hope belongs

placed in the window for observation

not in the back of someone’s head

in the past or buried with the dead

and the crime remains to be

giving up or losing faith in thee

trust yourself, believe in yourself

hold on to all you know true

life is yours to keep

blame uncertainty and hatred

no dreams are made of this

 

No dreams are made of this

look in my eyes, can’t you see it

no dreams are made of this

for better or for worse, I mean it

 

I’ve had regrets, handled the curse

stared at the face of defeat

been told it’s my fault every time and

you’re not my friend of mine, but

that enemy lies within

no day is too long, no words can’t become a song

I need some way to release

trust yourself, believe in yourself

never surrender

no dreams are made of this

 

No dreams are made of this

look in my eyes, can’t you see it

no dreams are made of this

for better or for worse, I mean it

no dreams are made of this

I want to believe you, really I do

but I don’t

 

It anyone asks you why

say it

 

My name is

My name is

My name is

don’t forget me, don’t forget me

 

My life is

my hopes are

My worlds not, all wrong

I’m still holding on

still holding on

not sure for how long

 

I hope for all time

J’ai cet album, et foi d’Administrateur-éminent-tout-plein, je m’en vais vous en parler sous peu !

Tracklist

The silence of night, street light through the window. I’m sitting here alone, me and my shadow. AN empty glass and three more cigarettes. I’ve been here before, but this one’s the toughest yet. My mind can’t sleep, to forget about it all. I’m still here alone, me and my shadow. I wish I could remember before, the way I used to feel. I’ve written it down somewhere.

Accidents will happen.

I guess it’s all about time that I should be leaving, a change of scenery. Sitting here’s just a no win guarantee.But first I’ll draw he curtain, get some rest or sleep. Just a little time for me. I hope that you are watching. I hope that you can see me. From afar I look ok.With no thing really left and no need to be right. There’s only dust down the centre of life. And I don’t have a peaceful moment.

Accidents will happen (I fight, alive, I must) (I’m down and broken) (no use to fade or die) (It would be hopeless)

Breath with me, I try to awake youth stop you leave. I scream at the heavens, why won’t you help me. I knew it was too late. No hope no answer. With I had remembered to say. I love you.

Accidents will happen (I fight, alive, I must) (I’m down and broken) (no use to fade or die) (It would be hopeless)

 

From the west side to the east, south side to the north. Life begins to sing. A melody you know, with rhythm from the Gods. Peace and harmony, is still aware of you. While you wait for something worth. It’s a gift in a year of hope. It helps you from your knees. Don’t ever feel alone these days. It’s all about face.Smile you will be there. 

Pour light on my life. Light on my face. Light on my head. For there I should be. Here in the place. Don’t need a reason. Leaving’s more than just a memory for me. 

You know you really feel the curse. Teeter on the edge. But never look down. Just listen to the words, the ones that you should say to yourself. And if things really get unclear, a little too unclear. Remember it could be much worse. I can tell you this here and now. When you start to count the days, till you feel better now. It’s all about to change. Smile and you will be there.

Pour light on my life. Light on my face. Light on my head. For there I should be. Here in the place. Don’t need a reason. Leaving’s more than just a memory for me. 

Looking inwards, from the outside. You see it clearer. A tower of strength is waiting. All the words you think you want to say. No not me, yeah you. From the west side to the east, south side to the north, and everywhere around you, all around you.

Pour light on my life. Light on my face. Light on my head. For there I should be. Here in the place. Don’t need a reason. Leaving’s more than just a memory for me. 

 

On the seventh day, the sunlight had melted the ice. The steam on the window, had crystallised the night before. And you reached out for the warmth in my hand. On the seventh day.

And now you know my heart can be broken. And I wait a lot and I wonder about what you’re doing now. And I guess I’ll never know it. I look into my mind and ask why. Nothing seems to change. Not anymore for me. On the sixth day I saw you cry for the first time. The day before you realised time was running out. The fourth day, I felt it, I was alive. The third day, Time just few by. And now I feels like life is over. And so I wait a lot. And I wonder about what you’re doing now and I guess I’ll never know it. I look into my mind and ask why. Nothing seems to change. Not anymore for me.

Crazy Girl, you’re crazy. On the second day we both knew. We’d have to forget. The last day are the promise. The promise I regret and you let go of the warmth in my hand. On the last day. And I guess we both know. It’s over !

So we wait a lot. And we wonder about what we’re doing now. And I guess we’ll never know it. Look into your mind and ask why. But nothing seems to change, not anymore for me.

And I followed my heart, like you told me to and I’ve given you all. Every friend I have can see it. Shouldn’t be alive without a reason. That reason was you. Not anymore for me.

Lay down your life they said
Let me inside your soul
Always remember this
It’s for the sake of us all
American Beauty, tell me what’s going to become of me
What have you done to my head?
It feels like you’re living inside of me
American Beauty, living a lie, I shouldn’t be
I want to believe it instead
And never will erase the memory
If I can’t see, why not?
Have I been blinded by trust?
Or are you testing me, I feel this desperately
Cause I seem to pray a lot
I’m I lost, in my fear
Cause the more that I look, the less I believe
In something I don’t want to see
American Beauty, tell me what’s going become of me
What have you done to my head?
It feels like you’re living inside of me
American Beauty, living a lie, I shouldn’t be
I want to believe it instead
And never will erase the memory
Do I believe in myself, or just don’t know me
I’ve got the world at my feet and a family
The only fight I have’s with people I don’t know
And the truth is, I don’t like where I’m going
American Beauty, tell me what’s going become of me
What have you done to my head?
It feels like you’re living inside of me
American Beauty, living a lie, I shouldn’t be
I want to believe it instead
And never will erase the memory
But what have you done to my head
I feel like you’re living inside of me
I want to believe it instead
And never will erase the memory

Hey Ma ! I wanna be a rock star.

I told all my friends and bought myself a guitar.

Well the voice of disbelief was deafening.

They look upon their faces, almost threatening.

All that you could hear were cries of laughter.

Someone even said I was a disaster, can you believe it ?

Hey Ma ! I wanna be a rockstar.

I told all my friends and bought myself a guitar.

Well the voice of disbelief was deafening.

They look upon their faces, almost threatening.

All that you could hear were cries of laughter.

Someone even said was a disaster, can you believe it ?

Maybe you’ll be pleasantly surprised, you’d be right to trust me.

I believe the ghost of good news is gonna be haunting me. Why ?

I’ll never know.

Maybe soon I’ll find out, I guess I’m in with a shout.

Never know if you don’t try.

I don’t know I don’t ask why.

 

The voice of Disbelief. Said the voice of Disbelief. 

Hey Ma ! I wanna be a rockstar.

Hey Ma ! Why are you not listening ?

Why are you not listening ?

 

If she erupted always another day,
Don’t be hard on yourself
You wake up and dust yourself down
You say « Never again »

Forget it, it’s too late now
You’ve still got me as your friend
So why don’t you come stay tonight
It’s better for you that way

Focus on love, focus on real
And know that you’re a friend of mine

If you need a little time for yourself
You know where to find me
If you need a little hope for your soul
Give me a call
No love in darkness, only in light, only in light
Today is the first day of chang

Try to remember, try not to regret
No one never said peace was easy to get
Someday you’ll be lonely and I will appear
Just like a ghost, but don’t fear me

Forget it, it’s too late now
You’ve still got me as your friend
So why don’t you come stay tonight
It’s better for you that way

Focus on love, focus on real
Just know that you’re a friend of mine

If you need a little time for yourself
You know where to find me
If you need a little hope for your soul
Give me a call
No love in darkness, only in light, only in light
Today is the first day of change

 

Focus on love, focus on real
And give yourself a chance next time
If you need a little time for yourself
You know where to find me
If you need a little hope for your soul
Just give me a call
No love in darkness, only in light, only in light
Today is the first day of change.

 

In a small town, somewhere on the eastern side of the Elbe
A girl looks at the sky, believing that someday she could learn how to fly
And held within this vision, where her secrets lived and breathe
With an inner desire to be free
And they all new she was special, from her first years as a child
Almost like an inner glow, only visible with faith
But you don’t ask many questions and you don’t reveal your fear
It’s here that you belong, there is nowhere else to be
And to light up your life, you have your family and friends who never listen
You can fall into line, just like your mama did and her mama before
It begins as an obsession and ends in misery
Till you’re faced with the decision, to stay or to break free
And the choice is never easy, so you have to take and give
Either learning how to die or learning how to live
And to light up your life, you have your family and friends who never listen
You can fall into line, just like your mama did and her mama before
With all your inhibitions increasing inside and no one to talk to
The time has arrived to go your own way, if you don’t you’ll just regret it
Oh Lord, what else can you do
No one understands how it feels to be
All this indecision is killing me
And to light up your life, you have your family and friends who never listen
You can fall into line, just like your mama did and her mama before
With all your ambitions increasing inside and no one to talk to
The time has arrived to go your own way, if you don’t you’ll just regret it
If you don’t you’ll just regret it

Are you mystified by what I say?
Do you understand it takes a lot to feel that way
Are you leaving now, please don’t look back
In many ways your presence makes it harder to ask
Will you take the feeling of loss away with you
Never to return, you know I would be grateful
Please don’t think that I’m not grateful, ’cause I can feel it

I’ve been mystified by my sacrifice
But I wanted to belong to you
But I was too young

I remember that time, sleeping in the back of a car
Parked on some side street, so people couldn’t see us
We were living day to day, the kids too young to remember
Some things just seem to stay inside throughout the years

And if the fears I had haven’t changed
I guess it’s not the best way to behave
And if it’s all that I can have
You really should remember
That I can feel it

I’ve been mystified by my sacrifice
I wanted to belong to you
But I was too young
And I could write the book about my sacrifice
I wanted to believe you
But I was too young

Too young, too naive
Seems so long ago
But I remember you
Just like yesterday
Like a nightmare I can’t wake
I just go on sleeping

And I’m mystified by my sacrifice
I wanted to belong to you
But I was too young
And I could write the book
I could tell you all
I wanted to believe you
But I was too young

I wanted to believe you
But I was too young

She flies into space, he just waits and counts the days
There’s so much he needs to say to her
The crime is not to believe, given time it eats away
Until you feel that you can’t take no more

You brace yourself for something worse, just in case she’s gone
Nothing makes you safe, you can’t rely upon
You hate to admit to yourself, you’re hanging on a prayer
Nowhere you can run, something you’re depending on

The fear is here again (The voices in my head, ghosts within my soul)
I’m lying in my bed, waiting for a friend
She flies, she flies (Waits and counts the days)
Till you feel that you can’t take no more

Your self-belief and dignity is there but only just
A cradle holds her soul, you just can’t let it go
A crime, even impunity are dreams you hold so dear
For the sake of love, for the sake of all of us

Pour some dark on me, I don’t feel so good
Hold the light up, I need to see you

You brace yourself for something worse, just in case she’s gone
Nothing makes you safe, you can’t rely upon
You hate to admit to yourself, you’re hanging on a prayer
And for the sake of love, for the sake of all of us

Guns of God, cause it’s not your god. Take it away from, eliminate all of. Praise your Allah. Guns of God, giving no hope of. Draining the life out. Killing the soul of. The Fool is in me, driven by love. I’m hungry and older with fear and anger, playing the part. It should have been the role of peace and hope.

Shallom. I ease into your sleep. And count the lives like sheep. Our hopes go up, in flames. But spirits never die.

In the calm of the day I feel the heat of the sunlight. The old bones may be frail now. But miming still hates what they did to my family. And all they took from the people here. Left with nothing but memory. And fear and hunger. Playing the part. She could have been the rose in my garden of eden.

Shallom. I ease into a sleep. And count the life like sheep. our hopes go up, in flames. But spirits never die.

Guns of god, cause it’s not your god. Take it away from, eliminate all of. Parise your Allah. Guns of God, giving no hope of. Draining the life out. Killing the soul of.

Old man, take a look into the mirror and what do you see.

Young boy. Keep an eye on the side line.

 

Life is a prison, not what you make it and somebody sentenced me.

And now with the age I’m showing, nobody helps me.

Look at my portrait, lines on my face.

The many years, the windom. 

And you ask me.

Is anything worth knowing ?

I found no good in anyone or anything at all, until I found me.

Old man, take a look into the mirror and what do you see.

 

Some people, some people, think they know it all.

And wherever you stand, be the soul of that place.

That’s what my friend used to say, in so many different ways.

Am I satisfied ?

Yes, I’m satisfied.

 

I found no good in anyone or anything at all, until I found me.

Old man, take a look into the mirror and what do you see.

Young boy. Keep an eye on the side line. Keep an eye on the side line.

 

In spite of this, I still see. 

Alive in bliss, heavenly.

I found no good in anyone or anything at all, until I found me.

 

Days are going.

Days are long gone.

Life ain’t holding.

Life’s dissolving.

Counting down the days.

I Pray, I Pray.

I found no good in anyone or anything at all, until I found me.

Until I found me.

 

Old man, take a look into the mirror and take a look into the mirror, and keep an eye on the side line.

Keep an eye on the side line;

 

You ought to be resting, believe it or not
The dream is finally over, the culprit has been caught
The winds of change are blowing, a chill is in the air
And to the left and to the right, defeat rings everywhere
A flame put out with water, was suffocated first
It’s freezing cold or excessive heat and it’s hard to know what’s worse
You’re caught up in the system, it’s controlling all your days
Your motioning is irrational, and your thinking out of phase
You ought to be resting…

Well the key to my survival
was never in much doubt
the question was how I could keep sane
trying to find a way out

Things were never easy for me
peace of mind was hard to fin
and I needed a place where I could hide
somewhere I could call mine

I didn’t think much about it
til it started happening all the time
soon I was living with the fear everyday
of what might happen that night

I couldn’t stand to hear the
crying of my mother
and I remember when
i swore that, that would be the
Last they’d see of me
And I never went home again

they say that time is a healer
and now my wounds are not the same
I rang the bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he’d say

He sat me down to talk to me
he looked me straight in the eyes

he said:

You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
You walked out, you left us behind
and you’re no son, no son of mine

oh, his words how they hurt me, I’ll never forget it
and as the time, it went by, I lived to regret it

You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
but where should I go,
and what should I do
you’re no son, you’re no son of mine
but I came here for help, oh I came here for you

Well the years they passed so slowly
I thought about him everyday
what would I do, if we passed on the street
would I keep running away

in and out of hiding places
soon I’d have to face the facts
we’d have to sit down and talk it over
and that would mean going back

they say that time is a healer
and now my wounds are not the same
I rang that bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he’d say

He sat me down to talk to me
he looked me straight in the eyes

he said:

You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
When you walked out, you left us behind
and you’re no son, you’re no son of mine

oh, his words how they hurt me, I’ll never forget it
and as the time, it went by, I lived to regret it

You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
But where should I go and what should I do
You’re no son, you’re no son of mine
But I came here for help, oh I was looking for you
You’re no son, you’re no son of mine – oh
You’re no son – ha yeah, ha yeah, ha yeah, ha yeah
You’re no son, you’re no son of mine

I must’ve dreamed a thousand dreams
Been haunted by a million screams
But I can hear the marching feet
They’re moving into the street.

Now did you read the news today
They say the danger’s gone away
But I can see the fire’s still alight
There burning into the night.

There’s too many men
Too many people
Making too many problems
And not much love to go round
Can’t you see
This is a land of confusion.

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth living in.

Ooh Superman where are you now
When everything’s gone wrong somehow
The men of steel, the men of power
Are losing control by the hour.

This is the time
This is the place
So we look for the future
But there’s not much love to go round
Tell me why, this is a land of confusion.

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth living in.

I remember long ago –
Ooh when the sun was shining
Yes and the stars were bright
All through the night
And the sound of your laughter
As I held you tight
So long ago –

I won’t be coming home tonight
My generation will put it right
We’re not just making promises
That we know, we’ll never keep.

Too many men
There’s too many people
Making too many problems
And not much love to go round
Can’t you see
This is a land of confusion.

Now this is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth fighting for.

This is the world we live in
And these are the names we’re given
Stand up and let’s start showing
Just where our lives are going to.

Just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I’m wrong, when I thought I was right
s’always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all
I could say day, and you’d say night
tell it’s black when I know that it’s white
always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all

I could leave but I won’t go
though my heart might tell me so
I can’t feel a thing from my head down to my toes
but why does it always seem to be
me looking at you, you looking at me
it’s always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all

Turning me on, turning me off,
making me feel like I want too much
living with you’s just putting me through it all of the time
running around, staying out all night
taking it all instead of taking one bite
living with you’s just putting me through it all of the time

I could leave but I won’t go
well it’d be easier I know
I can’t feel a thing from my head down to my toes
why does it always seem to be
me looking at you, you looking at me
it’s always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all

Truth is I love you
more than I wanted to
there’s no point in trying to pretend
there’s been no-one who
makes me feel like you do
say we’ll be together till the end

I could leave but I won’t go
it’d be easier I know
I can’t feel a thing from my head down to my toes
so why does it always seem to be
me looking at you, you looking at me
it’s always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all

But I love you
more than I wanted to
there’s no point in trying to pretend
there’s been no-one who
makes me feel like you do
say we’ll be together till the end

But just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I’m wrong when I thought I was right
it’s always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all
Well I could say day, and you’d say night
tell me it’s black when I know that it’s white
it’s always the same, it’s just a shame, that’s all

That’s all

A little piece of something
Falling gently down down down
No one understands you like I do

I’d rather be beside you
Everything we know so well
Tell me what you feel now
Show me what you think of it

It’s not about us anymore
It’s all about the reasons
That we think we’re fighting for
It’s not about hate
It’s not about pain we always feel
I know we have our problems
But we’re not the only ones
It’s not about you it’s not about me
It’s not about anger
It’s more about the loneliness we feel

How can I begin to
Ask for some forgiveness
For all that we have taken
There’s nothing left now

Just a little piece of something
Falling gently down down down
No one understands you no no
Like I do
There’s nothing left now

It’s not about us anymore
It’s all about the reasons
That we think we’re fighting for
It’s not about hate
It’s not about pain we always feel
I know we have our problems
But we’re not the only ones
It’s not about you it’s not about me
It’s not about anger
It’s more about the loneliness we feel

It’s not about us
It’s not about hate
It’s more about the loneliness we feel, can you feel it
It’s not about anger
It’s not about wanting
I know we have our problems
But we’re not the only ones, we’re not the only ones
It’s not about you, it’s not about me…

There is lambswool under my naked feet.
The wool is soft and warm,
– gives off some kind of heat.
A salamander scurries into flame to be destroyed.
Imaginary creatures are trapped in birth on celluloid.
The fleas cling to the golden fleece,
Hoping they’ll find peace.
Each thought and gesture are caught in celluloid.
There’s no hiding in my memory.
There’s no room to avoid.

The crawlers cover the floor in the red ochre corridor.
For my second sight of people, they’ve more lifeblood than before.
They’re moving in time to a heavy wooden door,
Where the needle’s eye is winking, closing in on the poor.
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
« We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out. »

There’s only one direction in the faces that I see;
It’s upward to the ceiling, where the chamber’s said to be.
Like the forest fight for sunlight, that takes root in every tree.
They are pulled up by the magnet, believing they’re free.
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
« We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out. »

Mild mannered supermen are held in kryptonite,
And the wise and foolish virgins giggle with their bodies glowing bright.
Through a door a harvest feast is lit by candlelight;
It’s the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight.
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
« We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out. »

The porcelain mannikin with shattered skin fears attack.
The eager pack lift up their pitchers – they carry all they lack.
The liquid has congealed, which has seeped out through the crack,
And the tickler takes his stickleback.
The carpet crawlers heed their callers:
« We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out
We’ve got to get in to get out. »

I’m a million miles from anywhere, where can I be
Somewhere out on the ocean
Just take a look out on the horizon, what can you see
There’s nothing there for me

I feel shipwrecked, I might as well be shipwrecked
I’m helpless and alone drifting out to sea
I can’t believe what you said to me

Even standing on the corner of a busy city street
I still feel so lonely
Why do you say you want to be with me
But the next day say you don’t

I’m shipwrecked, I might as well be shipwrecked
I’m helpless and alone drifting out to sea
I can’t believe what you said to me
Without you I feel shipwrecked
But I can’t let it show
A million miles away from anywhere, ooh, ooh, ohh

Is it my imagination
Or is it getting darker, are the waves getting higher
I’m a million miles from anywhere
A million miles from anything I know

You know that’s why I’m shipwrecked
I might as well be shipwrecked
I’m helpless and alone drifting out to sea
I can’t believe what you said to me
You know that’s why I’m shipwrecked, shipwrecked
Losing my direction
Please come and rescue me (shipwrecked)
Shipwrecked
Shipwrecked
Shipwrecked
Shipwrecked…

Stay with me,
My love I hope you’ll always be
Right here by my side if ever I need you
Oh my love

In your arms,
I feel so safe and so secure
Everyday is such a perfect day to spend
Alone with you

I will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing year

With the dark,
Oh I see so very clearly now
All my fears are drifting by me so slowly now
Fading away

I can say
The night is long but you are here
Close at hand, oh I’m better for the smile you give
And while I live

I will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing year there will be

I will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing year…

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing stretching every nerve
Had to listen had no choice
I did not believe the information
[I] just had to trust imagination
My heart going boom boom boom
« Son, » he said « Grab your things,
I’ve come to take you home. »

To keepin’ silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Tho’ my life was in a rut
« Till I thought of what I’d say
Which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going boom boom boom
« Hey » he said « Grab your things
I’ve come to take you home. »
(Back home.)

When illusion spin her net
I’m never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No on taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don’t need a replacement
I’ll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going boom boom boom
« Hey » I said « You can keep my things,
they’ve come to take me home. »

Making the most of it
Turning a light up and
Breaking the back of a
Killing the negative
Finding the faith isn’t
As much as I’d like it to be
Follow the path set by
Somebody else’s hand
Craving addiction and
Living in fear of me

But I don’t think that I can change
I’ve been feeling this way for so long now
And this feeling inside still remains
I aint gonna change
Aint gonna change

Bent on destruction I
Have no intention
Black into day into
Dark into Night I go
Blaming myself like I
I’m in control of it
I Turn it around for a
Just for the fun of it
Back to the start I go
I Wish I had learned from you

But I don’t think that I can change
I’ve been feeling this way for so long now
And this feeling inside still remains
I aint gonna change
Aint gonna change

Ray Wilson raconte une histoire courte

You see the face on the TV screen
coming at you every Sunday
see that face on the billboard
that man is me

On the cover of the magazine
there’s no question why I’m smiling
you buy a piece of paradise
you buy a piece of me

I’ll get you everything you wanted
I’ll get you everything you need
don’t need to believe in hereafter
just believe in me

Cos Jesus he knows me
and he knows I’m right
I’ve been talking to Jesus all my life
oh yes he knows me
and he knows I’m right
and he’s been telling me
everything is alright

I believe in the family
with my ever loving wife beside me
but she don’t know about my girlfriend
or the man I met last night

Do you believe in God
cos that’s what I’m selling
and if you wanna get to heaven
I’ll see you right

You won’t even have to leave your house
or get outta your chair
you don’t even have to touch that dial
cos I’m everywhere

And Jesus he knows me
and he knows I’m right
I’ve been talking to Jesus all my life
oh yes he knows me
and he knows I’m right
well he’s been telling me
everything’s gonna be alright

Won’t find me practising what I’m preaching
won’t find me making no sacrifice
but I can get you a pocketful of miracles
if you promise to be good, try to be nice
God will take good care of you
just do as I say, don’t do as I do

I’m counting my blessings,
I’ve found true happiness
cos I’m getting richer, day by day
you can find me in the phone book,
just call my toll free number
you can do it anyway you want
just do it right away

There’ll be no doubt in your mind
you’ll believe everything I’m saying
if you wanna get closer to him
get on your knees and start paying

Cos Jesus he knows me
and he knows I’m right
I’ve been talking to Jesus all my life
oh yes he knows me
and he knows I’m right
well he’s been telling me
everything’s gonna be alright, alright

Jesus he knows me
Jesus he knows me, you know…

All I need is a TV show, that and the radio
Down on my luck again, down on my luck again
I can show you I can show you some of the people in my life
I can show you I can show you some of the people in my life
It’s driving me mad just another way of passing the day
I, I get so lonely when she’s not there
I, I, I…

You’re just another face that I know from the TV show
I have known you for so very long I feel you like a friend
Can’t you do anything for me, can I touch you for a while
Can I meet you another day and we will fly away

I can show you I can show you some of the people in my life
I can show you I can show you some of the people in my life
It’s driving me mad it’s just another way of passing the day
I, I get so lonely when she’s not there
I, I, I…

Turn it on, turn it on, turn it on again
Turn it on, turn it on, turn it on again I can see another face
Turn it on, turn it on, turn it on again I can see another face
Turn it on, turn it on, turn it on again

I’ve been thinking a lot these days
And trying to make it work between us
I sense you slowly moving away
Not taking me with you
If aill the years amount to nothing
With the future so unclear
Is this what it was all for ?
Do you want me to leave here ?

I’m done with waking up alone
And tired of being cast aside
Still hurting from your promises
The ones you couldn’t keep and didn’t try to
And maybe I trusted you too much
I’d like to take it all back now
Start over again
Having learned from my mistake

Constantly reminded of you
Everywhere I look I see your face
It’s painted on my mind
I’m still lonely
And constantly reminded of you
I just had to let you know

You’re all that I wanted
I’m not lying to myself
I’m entrusting somebody else
To make it ok
I want to be there with you
I want to hold onto you
Will you stay with me tonight ?

Constantly reminded of you
Everywhere I look 1 see your face
It’s painted on my mind
I’m still lonely
And constantly reminded of you
I just had to let you know

I live ln fear, constantly
I never know why
I don’t even know me
I’m a shadow of myself
To be here, constantly
Following me
I’m gonna make it out

Constantly reminded of you
Everywhere I look I see your face
It’s painted on my mlnd
I’m still lonely
Constantly remlnded of you
I just had to let you know
Constantly reminded of you
You’re painted on my mind
Constantly reminded of you
I just had to let you know

A fading photograph
The one I thought was mine
You’re always there, always there
Are you there ?

5/5

Un excellent album. Le retour de Ray Wilson acoustique après la parenthèse (à mon goût ratée) de She. D’excellents morceaux, notamment la chanson titre, Razorlight, Frequency. Seule le single, le tout premier morceau est paradoxalement en dessous. Bref, dans la ligne droite de Change, cet album est un vrai coup de coeur.

Tracklist

Bless me said the lonely boy,
Bless me said the lonely boy,
Why am I so lonely
Why does no one love me
Why does no one want me in their life
Bless me said the lonely girl,
Bless me said the lonely girl,
Why does no one love me,
Why does no one ever tell me why
Bless me said the lonely man,
Bless me said the lonely man,
And now that my wife’s left me,
Who is going to fill my dreams at night
I try but, I don’t succeed,
It’s a lonely life,
I wait for changes,
And there for the rest of time
Bless me for the love of God,
Bless me for the love of God,
Can’t you understand me,
Try to make a difference in my life
I just don’t belong here,
Everyone can see it in my eyes,
Bless me
Bless me said the lonely man
Bless me
I can’t feel loved
I can’t feel loved
Bless me
Bless me
Bless me
I can’t feel loved
Bless me
Bless me
Bless me
Lately I’ve had so much on my mind
Patience, must be patient, give it time
Hold on to this moment, hold on tight
You say, time waits for no man
I’ll wait I will trust in destiny
Place faith in my own ability
Lately I’ve had so much on my mind
Maybe life will bring to me what’s mine
Hold on, to this moment, hold on tight
You say, time waits for no man
And the less I think about it, the better
It only makes me feel what I don’t want to feel
Holding onto memories of you
Save me, save me from myself, please
The fear I have is real fear
That everyone and everything feels
It’s not a love thing
It’s like a special gift to me
Something I wanted
But left behind and never found again
The sentence doesn’t fit the crime
Imprisoned by the gift of time
And knowing I’m alone again tonight
Awake me, I sleep inside this memory
I need to find a new dawn
A sun that lights this misery
It’s not a love thing
It’s like a special wish to me
Something I wanted but left behind
And never found again
And I can see it so clear
I know it’s there I try to bring it near
I only wanted to believe and hold on
The special feeling’s all I have
I really feel the meaning of
Inner strength might fall away but
I know I’ll get it back some day
And I can see it so clear
I know it’s there I try to bring it near
I only wanted to believe and hold on
And the less I think about it, the better
Razorlite, see a different life
You’re running wild through the death of night
And from the days of your crisis
Are memories that you can not forget
But you’ve got so many reasons to get high, tonight
Foolish dreams, won’t change anything
All you’ll ever have is what the future brings
The blossom has gone, with every season
And you’ve got so many reasons to ask why, tonight
Is all you wanted, anything you need
The voices in your head all dissagree
Razorlite, it’s all black and white
You know that’s it’s up to you, if you live to die
But you’ve got so many reasons to get high, tonight
Close your eyes
Razorlite
Raise a light Razorlite, see a different life You’re
Running wild through the death of night And from the
Days of your crisis Are memories that you can not
Forget But you’ve got so many reasons to get high,
Tonight Foolish dreams, won’t change anything All
You’ll ever have is what the future brings The blossom
Has gone, with every season And you’ve got so many
Reasons to ask why, tonight Is all you wanted, anything
You need The voices in your head all dissagree
Razorlite, it’s all black and white You know that’s
It’s up to you, if you live to die But you’ve got so
Many reasons to get high, tonight Close your eyes
Razorlite
Raise a light
Just another lie
On a different day
Something to believe in
For evil to embrace
And to feast on, bad ideals
Just to wipe out all these infidels
Propaganda man
Propaganda man
In a sorry state
Forlorn man
Practicing his faith
That you don’t understand
Looks for answers, material
He’ll wait until time in memorial
Propaganda man
Life alone is no match for dreams
Looking through the mist
Will not allow you to see clear
Why owe, a debt to your soul
You will always reap what you have sewn
Propaganda man
Propaganda man
Propaganda man
When life’s door is closed in your face
And you have taken steps
To wipe out all the human race
Wash away the blood from off your soul
Let it flow into the promised land
Of propaganda man, propaganda man
Propaganda man
Propaganda man Just another…
The death city radio,
Pours out of the open window,
Static fires into the atmosphere
And moments and memories
Are lost to the frequencies, in the air.
And the sad face on reality
Is no longer sitting next to me.
A smile appeared to dry the tears away
The demons and angels
Are tolling on the iron bell, in the street.
Alive to me,
Love heals me
Fills all lost souls
These days are golden once more
And I’ve been forsaken too often.
It’s all inside me
Beter to live life I’m sure you’ll agree.
I save myself, from me again.
Go on and fight another day
No door left unopened
I know you must be looking for the way ahead.
Alive to me
Love heals me
Fills all lost souls
These days are golden once more
The death city radio,
Pours out of the open window.
The static fires into the atmosphere
And moments and memories
Are lost to the frequencies, in the air.

You once were trusted friend
Relied on your every word
Just like a modern day miracle
They could not find a cure for
A last and final wish
Just something maybe worth living for
I wish that could erase
Put myself in a different place
This felling is washing right over me
It cuts right to the core
Don’t have much left to give
It’s maybe something woth living for
I dont’t ask for too much,
Just bring me back from the dead.
Don’t break my spirit, hold a gun to my head.
Your act was so selfish, it was greed.
I’m sorry i tried my best
I’ve given up, I#m out of this
In time you’ll remember just what you had
Much later much too later
You must be mesmerised
You say it’s a sign you must follow it
Fool
Your mistake
No regrets
Your mistake
Forgiveness

I don’t want to wait around too long
You better not let me down
You better not leave me here
You better not try to change things
You better not disappear
You better not take revenge
You better wait till the end
You better not back the loser
You better not try to see her again
You better not try to see her again
I don’t wanna wait around too long
The life was made for me
This life was meant for me
You better not make mistakes
You better not fool around
You better not make me pay
You better not no you better not
You better not find your peace
You better not get release
You better not fall on stony ground
You better not let your guard down
The life was made for me
I don’t wanna wait around too long
You better not make mistakes
You better not fool around
You better not make me pay for this
You better not no you better not
Cosmic baby, cosmic baby
You better not let me down
You better not leave me here
You better not try to change things
You better not disappear
You better not make mistakes
You better not fool around
You better not make me pay for this
You better not no you better not
Cosmic baby
The life was made for me, cosmic baby
I don’t wanna wait around too long
Cosmic baby
The life was meant to be, cosmic baby
I don’t wanna wait around too long
I don’t wanna wait around too long
Things don’t stop
Just because life gets tough
You feel like giving in
Pleasure or pain
Live without foolish intentions
Things don’t stop
Certain as sure enough
You’re not a falling rock
Breaking to pieces
Scattering over the ground
Things don’t stop
If you fall down stand up
Brush off the grains of rust
Be good to yourself
I hope you hear what I’m saying
Things, things, things, things
Things don’t stop
Don’t even think you’ve lost
Mindfull of all you have
Pleasure or pain
Live without foolish intentions
Things don’t stop
Run once you’ve learned to walk
You’re not a falling rock
Breaking to pieces
Scattering over the ground
Things, things, things (2x)

Through a troubled life, an indifferent gaze
A bleeding tortured mind, a failure to amaze

Propaganda man, propaganda man, propaganda man

When life’s door is closed in your face
And you have taken steps to wipe out all the human race
Then wash away the blood from off your soul
Let it flow into the promised land of propaganda man

Propaganda man, propaganda man, propaganda man… Through a
troubled life, an indifferent gaze A bleeding tortured mind,
a failure to amaze Propaganda man, propaganda man,
propaganda man When life’s door is closed in your face And
you have taken steps to wipe out all the human race Then
wash away the blood from off your soul Let it flow into the
promised land of propaganda man Propaganda man, propaganda
man, propaganda man…

If I was a stranger,
I’d still call this home,
Even through the changes,
In Life I have known
What lies in the future now,
Is Destiny’s game,
There’s no point asking questions,
The answer doesn’t change
I just want to live a life,
That teaches me the dark and light,
And discipline the part of me,
That needs to run away
And, don’t forget the memories,
The fear hasn’t gone,
The loneliness of night time,
And distance until dawn
Finally, I understand,
Won’t be going there again,
It’s confined to my history,
I hope it’s there for good
You and me on the other side, alone
You and me on the other side, alone
You and me on the other side alone
Alone, alone
No loneliness with you
If I had a need… I…
I would surely need you,
To help me through the changes,
That Life puts me…
