Moments 01:05
Pour avoir plus à faire que de regarder en l’air Et attendre que le ciel tombe J’ai remplacée mon cœur par une bombe Pour avoir plus à faire que de regarder par terre Les gens se piétiner tous en trombe J’ai remplacée mon cœur par une bombe Et elle va exploser d’un moment à l’autre Et quoi qu’il advienne, sans peine Affronterons-nous le rouge du ciel De tout son fiel Sans être retardée elle va exploser d’un moment à l’autre Et faire de moi une pluie de petites flammes Le feu réchauffera vos âmes de sa lame Mon cœur est une bombe Remplie d’amour à l’infini Lorsqu’elle explose nul ne tombe C’est un baume qui guérit Plus besoin de se fondre à l’ombre J’ai remplacée mon cœur par une bombe Nul ne tombe, s’éteint
Given 04:06
A brand new day as come The last we’ll ever know complete As we see it I dreamt of a better place With no one in distress Oh please, make it real All the words written And all the steps chosen For those who were broken To guide them in the right direction I rest my head so I can see you better Up there seeing clear You know the world shook today The land has been washed away To sea, with parts of me There will be no more fear And no hunger Please, come here And whisper in my ear It’s time to leave
Mouths 03:29
There something I meant to say yesterday It’s lost its meaning What’s inside I don’t want to hide I’m afraid it might make my river run dry I’ll just let go I’ll just let go my head I’m fighting against my fears Once again I’ve lost my patience And I’m struggling With the things that I can control from happening Then just let go, I’ll just let go My heart knows the way to flow To untangle the knot down my throat And let the light glow So I can tell you what I know And say what I mean Do you know what I mean?
Circle 04:19
Did you ever wonder why everything happens for a reason? Did you ever wonder why everything happens for a reason? For every boy and every girl there’s a place in this world For every boy and every girl a way to provide for this world Did you ever wonder why somehow you feel empty inside? Did you ever wonder why you feel something is missing inside? There’s too much surrounding you Too much is around There’s too much surrounding you Too much is around There are too many colors in you That can’t seem too find a way through Let it out, let them out, let it out, and let it all out!
Courir 04:25
J’avance avant l’homme, avant de n’être qu’un point Je croque la pomme par envie d’aller plus loin Je veux être de taille à me mesurer à mes ambitions Plonger et avoir assez de souffle pour toucher le fond Ici le silence n’est pas encore habité Comme si son essence tenait à se conserver Je danse dans le vide au milieu du salon Je chante en silence pour habiter ma maison C’est pas parce qu’on va mourir qu’on va vivre Mais on va tout faire pour y arriver Moi je voudrais courir et surtout pas suivre Laissez-moi m’essouffler, laissez-moi y arriver Le vent frappe à ma porte et m’emporte loin De ce qui me tient par l’intérieur Cette frayeur, je la chanterai fort une fois dehors Une fois dehors, j’aimerais Pouvoir chanter dans toutes les cages d’escaliers Et résonner, résonner jusqu’à perpétuité Mieux encore, dans toutes les Églises Sans s’annoncer pour garder la surprise C’est pas parce qu’on va mourir qu’on va vivre Mais on va tout faire pour y arriver Célébrer la vie sans se déconstruire Aller dehors s’il va pleuvoir and we’ll be signing in the rain, just signing in the rain Parce que si le destin de notre Terre est de rejoindre un trou dans l’Univers, rien ne sert de mener une vie amère.
Like a summer rain Like a day that lasts all night Like never before Like I forgive you, I forget Like it never really happened Like everything is still in motion In the stillness of the room Of the moment Look something is going on There’s no need for me to claim that I’m not to blame When the fingers are all pointing at me, they’re pointing at me Sometimes it all seems right to take it all upon ourselves and not to deny I think it adds a certain quality to life And I see everything as a new beginning Like a fresh scent of jasmine in a garden Like a bird singing its melody in the early morning Like a new table for old chairs Like a glimpse of hope in the middle of despair Like how long it takes now to climb up the stairs Like…like
Hold my hand 04:59
I’m so stunned by how we people Seem to like to stand in the mud And seem to enjoy the way our sticky feet try to walk But stays in the exact same place Try to read my face as you try to justify Try to read my eyes as I see you sink to the bottom again Can’t you respect yourself? Love yourself? I see the grace that god gave But each time we try to hide it Each time we try to erase it If you’d fit the gloves of your acts You know it wouldn’t be that bad But the thing is they are way too small And you try to put them on They are so tight, it squeezes all the rain out of you It squeezes all the rain that’s been sleeping deep inside of you How many vows will you have to break? Aren’t you suppose to live by those you take Maybe I don’t understand you know, it could be my mistake Because I won’t dive in your waters no, I prefer to skate Can’t you stay intact? Do you really have to live like that? Enter your bubble And start patching each and every hole Then install the mirrors Try to read the wrinkles on your face These cuts are only minor So please try to find that sparkle of grace Once you get a hold of it, help it grow and never let it go…never, never let it go
I’m being followed by the sound Of the wind telling me to calm down But by the time I turn around It’s gone and I’m missing the words to calm down Some teachers of my past have past away Leaving at sea their treasures of sounds and I pray To be connected to the life I see To sing its feelings and hope it will come down on me Come down on me
I’m here, still, you know You can’t see me, but it is me that you feel I won’t haunt you by doing that creaking sound on the floor I won’t be living here anymore Remember to always be strong Because you know I can’t stay too long I need to leave now, but you need to go on If you need me I’ll be in the breeze And it will be me, playing with your hair It will be me, caressing your face It will be me, drying all your tears There in the breeze, you will feel me Don’t be afraid now I never was there to tell you what to do You were the one who knew all along That you could survive on your own You can always ask yourself What would she do? But believe when your inner voice says: She trusts in you
