Track Name: I Feel Fat
I feel fat I feel fat today What am I gonna do What am i gonna do I feel fat today I ate too much last evening I ate too much this morning Now it’s noon It’s lunch soon I already feel as big as the moon And I feel fat today
I can’t help having food Filling my stomack is so good I know it’s more than I should But I can’t help having food So I feel fat I feel fat today What am I gonna do What am I gonna do I feel fat todayI ate too much last evening I ate too much this morning Now it’s noon It’s lunch soon Day after day I inflate like a balloon And I feel fat today What am I gonna do What am I gonna do as long as I feel fat today Now it’s noon It’s lunch soon I already feel as big as the moon And I feel fat today
Since my wolf left me in the woods Lost, heartbroken, without love goods I need substitutes in my blood I would prefer being eaten Like Little Red Riding Hood Than feeling fat Feeling fat today Being fat Being fat today
Track Name: Les Fauves
Tu n’es pas un empereur, je n’ suis pas la fée des bois
Tu n’es pas un gladiateur, je ne suis pas une diva
Ni toi ni moi ne sommes les héros … d’une romanesque saga

Nous ne traversons pas les landes, pas de chevauchée épique
Nous sommes dans l’arène, livrés à nous--m’aime
Nos peurs se croient au cirque
Carnaval, Catastrophe, Catapulte, Cafouillage, …Cataclysme

Plus de grille, exit les dompteurs
Ca part en vrille, fuite des spectateurs
Les fauves sont lâchés Vont s’entre-déchirer L’odeur du sang les excite

Tu es l’homme de mon cœur, et moi la femme qui te pique
Nous sommes dans l’arène, livrés à nous--m’aime
Nos peurs se croient au cirque
Catafalque, Camisole, Caprice, Camouflage, …Catharsis

Plus de grille, exit les dompteurs
Ca part en vrille, fuite des spectateurs
Les fauves sont lâchés Vont s’entre-déchirer L’odeur du sang les excite

Les fauves sont rassasiés Entre-dévorés Leurs dépouilles encore palpitent

Allons les achever Sur leur peau dépecée À nous aimer je t’invite

Alanguis devant le feu de joie, les charognes cuisant sur la braise
Au banquet de nos émois, de nos gouffres et de nos ivresses
Toi et moi sommes les héros… du pataquès

Camembert, Carpaccio, Cardamome, Capuccino, Calisson,
Carcadet, Cassoulet, Calembour, Carmagnole, …Calumet
Track Name: Stay Away
Stay away, stay away, stay away
Stay away from me, leave me with my pain
Don’t tell me how to think, I don’t have to explain

You drove me mad Never was your falt Thirsty and weak I licked all this salt You drove me mad Staggered and confused You froze my mind I drunk as I was used

How could I imagine the one who says he loves is the one who hurts ?
How could I imagine you’d try to steal my light to lead you in the darkness of your fears ?

Stay away, stay away, stay away…
Stay away from me, leave me with my pain
You don’t want to talk, you want to wash my brain

You drove me mad Never was your falt Thirsty and weak I licked all this salt You drove me mad Staggered and confused You froze my mind I drunk as I was used

You say you regret but this is just another trap
We’ve been there before, soon you will push this on my back

So stay away, stay away, stay away…
Stay away from me, leave me with my pain
I know how it works over and over and again
Yeah stay away from me, ‘cause I’m over with pain
Take a look at yours, you ‘ll stop being insane
Track Name: After Such A Long Time
After such a long time I’d forgotten the taste of love
After such a long time I’d forgotten the life in me
After such a long time Protecting myself and fearing this overwhelming feeling

After such a long time Used to habits and lonelyness
After such a long time Dreaming is wishing in vain
After such a long time Almost believing it would never happen again

But there you are This is called love at first sight
There you are Sweet and sunny breath in my heart
There you are An intimate conviction
That you are… What was just meant to happen

After such a long time People keeping on telling me I’m too demanding
After such a long time Should I try an affair and hope « it » will come ?... I’m really wondering even…
After such a long time No, no always listen to the inner voice, it’s clear now they were wrong !

‘Cause there you are This is called love at first sight
There you are A sweet and sunny breath in my heart
There you are An intimate conviction
That you are… What was just meant to happen

After such a long time Not even frustrated or unhappy, no…
After such a long time I guess I was not already ready
After such a long time While you were coming to me, so suddenly…

There you are This is called love at first sight
There you are A sweet and sunny breath in my heart
There you are An intimate conviction
That you are… What was just meant to happen
Track Name: MyShell
This is strange oh so strange
This is strange
Like a pearl in an oyster
Like a poppy on a bunker
Like a boat on the sea
Like a flame in the dark
You’re the hope not a lark
Trunk not branch of the tree
This is strange oh so strange
Just my head on your shoulder
Just a smile on your face
And I become better
And I’ll be fooling death

Just won’t fall in the trap
Take the road without a map
Sure to find not look for
Any key to a door
There’re no walls anymore
Jump and fly from the shore and
I become the laughing seabird
And you’re my shell
Yes you’re my shell

Just won’t fall in the trap
Take the road without map
Sure to find not look for
Any key to a door
There’re no walls anymore
Jump and fly from the shore
And I become the laughing seabird
And you’re my shell ,
Yes you’re my shell
And I become the laughing seabird
And you’re my shell
Ha – ha – ha – ha – ha – ha
We share the same rock
Where rolling waves slowly knock
We share the same rock
Where rolling waves slowly knock
And you’re my shell
You’re my shell

Sure to find not look for
Any key to a door
Sure to find not look for
Any key to a door
There’re no walls anymore
And I become the laughing seabird
I become the laughing seabird
Yeah I become …….. Laughing Seabird
Oh this is strange…
Track Name: Tous Les Mots Du Monde
Tous les mots du monde, ne suffiront pas
Les sens se confondent et glissent sous mes doigts

J'ai préparé encre, plume et papier
Pour que mon cœur puisse vers toi s'envoler
T'expliquer ses combats, ses tentatives vaines
Réussir à comprendre et alléger ma peine
Sans que pour un reproche tu le prennes

Mais tous les mots du monde, ne suffiront pas
Les sens se confondent et glissent sous mes doigts
Comment te dire les peurs anciennes
Qui à moi aussi tenaient lieu d' étrennes

Dès que je peux je détourne les yeux
Pour que tu n'y vois pas l'eau prendre feu
Tu vois je ne suis pas si forte et si sereine
Le bon petit soldat, du sacrifice la reine
Plus j'essaie et plus l'océan se déchaîne

Et tous les mots du monde, ne suffisent pas
Les sens se confondent et glissent sous mes doigts
Aveuglée par le sel d'un voile de pluie
Je me suis retournée, la source s'est tarie

Et tous les mots du monde n'ont pas suffit
A me retenir quand je suis partie
Sans appel ni sursis, fuir, alors
Qu'au cœur brûle l'envie et qu'on aime en corps...
