LES NUITS


Les nuits

Sont noires

L'envie

L'espoir


Le nom

De Dieu

Il pleut

Toujours


A time to weep

A time to laugh

A time to speak

A time to keep silence


Les jours

Sont blancs

L'oiseau

L'enfant


Les nuits

Sont noires

L'envie

L'espoir


Et moi

Je suis

Colère

L'envie


A time to born

A time to die

A time for war

A time for peace


Les nuits

Sont noires

L'envie

L'espoir


Et toi

Tu es

Le jour

La nuit



THE RISING SUN


Black

When the night is falling down on me

Grey

I see the outline of the tree


Mylove and I were walking

Through a waving wood

The sky was blue

My love and I were walking

On a frozen lake

The setting sun


Blue

Every morning is a mystery

White

In the outline of my door


My love and I, we fall asleep

In white rooms

Of our memory

My love and I, we disagree

On temperance

And destiny


How can we change?

What can we do?

Our hands are black

Our soul are blue


The long long years

What have we done?

We turn our heads

The rising sun



THE EIFFEL TOWER


Here I am with my child on the Eiffel tower

Looking down

When the light disappears

Paris is a frozen town


Now she turns her face to the camera

A photograph

And the river is a diamond snake

Around her head


I can't see it anymore

Nobody's knocking on my door


And e dream that we fall with a parachute

Like angles do

We look at the world through the eyes of birds

Feather words


I can't feel it anymore

Nobody's knocking on my door


We land in a street where poets live

Where painters died

The smell in a shop

Vinagar and artichoke


I can't taste it anymore

Somebody's knocking on my door


We sleep in a night on the stones of Père

Père Lachaise

We look at the names of Jim Morrison

And Chopin

THE LONG SONG


Each day I start

Thinking about it

We know by now

There's no love without it


Why is it taking so long

Till late in the evening?

Did I just wake up again

Or was I not sleeping?


And hold me hold me hold me

Till the time has come

Hold me hold me and hold me

Till it's done


So hold me hold me hold me

Till the time as come

And hold me hold me hold me

When it's done



THE LAUNDERETTE


Saw the angel

Falling down

Near the laundrette

On the sidewalk

Falling down

Saw the angel

Falling down

Near the laundrette

On the ground


Oh verything's frozen

In my soul

I am sleeping

Oh everything's frozen

In my soul

I am sleeping

Sleeping

Mmmmmm


It falls like the rain in my eye

The icicle from the sky

I am frozen

I see the light in the sky

And the clouds

The icicle falling down

Through my heart

I am frozen


It falls like the rain in my eye

The icicle from the sky

I am frozen

I see the light in the sky

And the clouds

The icicle falling down

Through my heart

Frozen


The sound of a train

On the railway arch

Through my head

I'm sleeping


Frozen angel



THE PIZZERIA


I had a terrible dream

The hour was early

I walk in my neighbourhood

I turn a corner


I see a river blood

With angels drowing

Devils with black parachutes

Fall down with bare feet

On the street

With sound of a thunder

Incredibly loud

My hands are on my ears


I had a beautiful dream

The hour was late

I felt incredibly light

A hundred keys in thousand pieces

Were flying like dragonflies

Over my head into the street

It was a beautiful sight

Like icicles in light


I had a terrible dream

The ovens in the pizzeria

Were burning like hell

The dryers in the laundrette

Werre turning red

It was a terrible sight

I heard the barcodes beep



THE KEY SHOP (WAR & PEACE)


The streets are red with raindrops

Falling from the crying sky

It's in my ear

It's in my eye


A man outside the laundrette

Is falling on the rainy street

It's in my ear

It's in my eye


War and peace

Live together like siamese twins

One stops

The other begins

War and peace

War and peace


I am a believer

In the things I can see with my eyes

No burning hell

No paradise


A man outside the key shop

He stops and waves goodbye

It's in my ear

It's in my eye


War and peace

Live together like siamese twins

One stops

The other begins

War and peace

War and peace


Dead man on the sidewalk

Raindrops from the crying sky

It's in my ear

It's in my eye


War and peace

Live together like siamese twins

One stops

The other begins

War and peace

War and peace



THE WIND-UP BIRD


Somebody said that it's red

But she knows it's blue

There are so many things in her life

That she wants to do


Sometimes she cries

Waving her sad goodbyes

She says "Life is a mystery

It a tree with a wind-up bird"


With a wind-up bird


Sometimes she smiles

Sometimes she's Charlie Chaplin

She's Charlie C. for a while

She says "Life is a mystery

It a tree with a wind-up bird"


The change in the weather

Is changing her mood today

With a wind-up bird

There are so many things in her life

That she has to say

With a wind-up bird


Sometimes she hurts

Sometimes she can be a dying tree

Using bitter words

She says "Life is a dying tree

Look at me

I'm a wind-up bird"


I'm a wind-up bird


Her head is an attic

Packed with broken things

She cannot remeber them

Only when sh sings


Somtimes it rains

Somtimes it raining diamonds

Diamonds in her brain

She says "Life is a mystery

It a tree with a wind-up bird"


Wind-up bird

With a wind-up bird

Wind-up bird

With a wind-up bird

Wind-up bird

Ahhhh



THE HOLE


Into a town

Into a street

Into a house

There's a hole


Into a room

In a wall

There's a hole


The cloud on a lake

The comma of the World

There's a hole

There's a hole

In my heart


She looks at me

As if I were a mirror

There's a hole

There's a hole

In my heart


I saw the sky and the stars

I saw the trees and the leaves

There's a hole

There's a hole

In my heart


Lokk at this town

Lokk at this street

Look at this house

Look at this wall

There's a hole

There's a hole

In my heart


I see the wall

I see the room

I see the house

I see the street

I see the town

There's a hole


Black crows in a yellow field

A window with a thousand keys

There's a hole

There's a hole

In my heart


I saw the child on a beach

I saw the rain on the leaves

There's a hole

There's a hole

In my heart


And it falls like the rain in a forest

It falls like rain in our hearts



THE MILKMAN


Oli told me

When we walked down

He was the milkman

In his hometown


I wish that life was always simple

I wish that it would never rain


Every morning

Or should I say night

He delivered the bottles

Before the first light


He was the milkman

And she was the cook

It sounds like a story

From some old-fashioned book


I wish that life was always like that

Never a cloud above our head


They fell in love

As simple as that

He brought the milk

And she baked the bread
