Calliope 04:30
You were golden A timeless princess An angel in shining armor In white pearls and silver grace You were the star Came down like a feather You took their breath away But now you come here All naked and bare As I lay you down I lay you down Ease off Let your hair down No need for make-belief Just open up your arms Shut your eyes And let me come inside Lose who you were before It’s just you and me

Is het dan niet goed misschien Kijk de horizon. Morgen Morgen zon Over de daken. Over wolken Over wolken jij Zo ver gekomen En nu, Verward in dromen Is het tijd, is het spijt, Die jou heeft bevroren? Jij Jij verandert Vertaald Al mijn woorden tot Geen woorden meer Geen woorden meer kwijt Je speelt verstoppertje Je speelt verdwaald En ik kom je niet tegen Kom daal uit die bomen Je hebt jezelf voorgelogen Wacht niet meer, smacht niet meer Naar de dag die nog moet komen

Across the ocean lives a girl in a tree Her eyes are colored both brown and green And from the branches she carves a crown Until one day, she climbs on down She crossed the water of the deep blue sea And on bare feet she came to me Skin as soft as a velvet gown She made me king with her wooden crown Cross my heart and hope to die She’ll stay with me til the end of times I showed her a song that i wrote She learned how to play it note by note This girl she has the finest groove Her bracelets rattle with her every move Baby now baby don’t stop Keep on moving me until I drop Across the ocean there stands a tree Its leaves are colored both brown and green There we reign with our wooden crowns I don’t think we’ll ever climb down

Aphrodite 03:53
The salt has vanished from the tears that I cry And these words that I speak, they don’t define My shadow got cut off from my feet All my thoughts seem so obsolete And all my friends can’t seem to remember my name Can someone please stop this wind from breezing through my veins I’m not now, I’m not here anymore You’re the reason that i disappeared I’m the drug you can’t ignore Make you crawl back for more You’re not the man you used to be As you wrap yourself around me I’m the drug you can’t ignore Call me love, call me whore Crushing all integrity Hear me laughing hahaha hihihi So I keep on breathing, keep on trying But i’m not living, i’m just complying to you I surrender, I can’t succeed Hook me up to make me feel complete And all these memories I can’t extract from my brain They rule and ruin my life, again and again Once had cravings, once had fears But i’m too afraid to lose you if they reappear

La Vedette 04:37
Juste un égard, encadré, enscèné Il faut me regarder. Que je me sens aimé. Par vos yeux inconnus et masqués Tout tournicotant, dans le mirage que je m'invente. A la recherche d’amour négligé Vient le temps de monter sur scène, allumer les feux. Tout nu et sans gêne Je m'éblouis, oh belle illusion, de me pouvoir lâcher Alors tombe la nuit, la solitude se reconstruit Un peu d'abri merde , ce n'est pas trop demander.Non? La traînée de mon espoir se répand par les trottoirs Oh mais demain, sacré demain Vient le temps de monter sur scène, allumer les feux, tout nu et sans gêne Je m'éblouis, oh belle illusion de me pouvoir lâcher Juste, un petit coup d'œil, pour combler le creux, pour nourir le vide, le fringale, et l'orgueil Je vous en prie, un petit coup d'œil, pour combler le creux, pour nourir le vide, le fringale, l'exigeance, la manie, l'abattement et l'orgueil Vient le temps de monter sur scène, allumer les feux, tout nu sans gêne Je m'éblouis, oh belle illusion, de me pouvoir lâcher Juste un égard, encadré, enscèné

Feathered creatures woke me, with the stomping of their feet. I was feeling hazy, strange creatures passing through these streets I hear a distant drumming, the drone pierces through my brain Oh medicine man please tell me, am i alright or am i insane Come join the masquerade, Come join the death parade There I saw Damballah dancing, around his neck, a creature serpentine Then it dawned upon me, how could i not have read these signs. I saw my dear mother in a pale white dress, a gris-gris bag and a blade Around the fire, Baron Samedi, almighty Oya, and everybody swayed. It was down on Congo Square, where I last saw my sweet Marie As i kneeled down to ask her: stay with me for eternity So darling build me an alter, bring me cigars, flowers and rum And I will dance and sing with the loudest voice, for you Marie, until the day you come

Oh Katie dear, go ask your momma If you can be a bride of mine If she says yes, come back and tell me If she says no, we’ll run away Oh Willie dear, ain’t no use in asking She’s in her room-a taking rest And by her side lies a silver dagger To slay the one, that i love best Oh Katie dear, then go ask your poppa If you can be a bride of mine If he says yes, come back and tell me If he says no, we’ll run away Oh Willie dear, ain’t no use in asking For he’s in his room-a taking rest And by his side lies a silver dagger To kill the one, that i love best So then he picked up, that silver dagger He stove it through his troubled young heart Saying goodbye Katie, goodbye darling I’ll die for the one, that i love best Then she picked up, that bloody dagger She stove it through her lily white breast Saying goodbye momma, goodbye poppa I’ll die for the one, that i love best

Am i only dreaming Or awake in fear and dread In my head there’s monsters creeping And thoughts hiding under my bed Ballerina’s dancing High on top of trees When the wind comes breezing They fall down to their knees And it’s all inside your head But it’s not there It’s all inside your head Distant voices whisper Pulling like the undertow My mind keeps stacking up memories Under which I’m being buried below

Zomerdromen 03:38
Appels hangen in de boom, wiegen zacht, in jouw droom Zoete adem, zoete geur Ochtendzon, ochtendkleur Proef je lichaam, smaak van zilt Ochtendroes, ochtendschild Nimmer wakker, nimmer slaap Jij en ik, droom en daad Het leven kabbelt voorbij Een seizoen in een eeuwigheid Begrensd door de horizon Ik wou dat ik je kussen kon Ogen zinderend in zweem, Heel dichtbij, en zo ver heen Dieper rakend, wij in zwijm Onbegrensd, ons geheim Zoals wind door de bladeren waait, Mijn hand door jouw haren draait Het zilt op jouw lichaam proef Met jou in zomerdromen vertoef
