Lyrics

Move to a Better Place

 

The rooms are too small but the rent is real cheap

There isn't anywhere for the children to sleep

It takes a long time to get us anywhere

I guess we'll look around and move to a better place

 

Chorus

There's a nice new apartment on the other side of town

Maybe there it'll be better if we only settle down

You know we'll stay together, it's just another phase

The little things in life keep tryin' to get us down

It's a hard day today but tomorrow'll come around

We'll do what it takes, and move to a better place

 

The hallway's dark and dirty, the dog is always sick

The car's stuck in the driveway, the ice is real thick

The days all run together, the nights I'm never there

I guess we'll look around and move to a better place

 

 

The house is cold and empty, we're living far away

The snow just keeps on snowing, they towed the car away

The icy wind is blowing it's like a slap in my face

I guess we'll look around and move to a better place

Lyrics

You’re Driving Me Away

 

When I come home at night, gotta turn on the lights

How come you’re never home, why am I all alone

I’ll bring the baby in, from the neighbour’s where he’s been

You’re out with your girls again, drinking with all your men friends

Woman, hear what I say

When you treat me this way

You’re driving me away (x3)

 

When we’re driving down the street, and some of my friends we meet

Can’t just give them a shout, without you spinning out

Every girl you see walking by, turns into a big fight I don’t know why

It’s not the way it has to be, it could spell the end for you and me

Woman, hear what I say

When you treat me this way

You’re driving me away (x3)

 

 

You know I’m working day and night, just to keep things together and we’re not so tight

Looks like it’s going down, baby now it won’t be long

You‘ll go your way, I’ll go mine, such a shame after all this time

In my heart I know I’m wrong, but I can only take it so long

Woman, hear what I say

When you treat me this way

You’re driving me away (x3)

Lyrics

The Bird Is in the Tree

 

On a summer day down at the bay, In the shade green and the clear sky blue

In the morning dew

Went for a walk down the fire lane, In the tall woods where the blue jays play

At the break of day

 

The bird is in the tree and he’s signing for me

The bird is in the tree and he’s signing for me

 

Then a little sprite came into my life, Jumped from a box and made me smile

I saw the light

And the night hawk flew in the summer sky, Then I knew for the rest of my life

The reason why

The bird is in the tree and he’s flying for me (x2)

The bird is in the tree and he’s signing for me

 

The kookaburra laughs at the end of the day, In the land down under so far away

Where they’ve gone to stay

I’ll be there one day and it won’t be long, Just like I was going to all along

And hear his song

 

 

The bird is in the tree and he’s laughing for me (x3)

The bird is in the tree

Lyrics

Darkest Day

In the darkness of this little room, there’s nothing left to see

All of life’s joy is now turned to gloom and all is misery

Was a time when we were young and life was so carefree

Then the day comes when all is taken and it all just fades away

 

Chorus

Weep, weep into the night

Wail, wail in the morning light

Cry, cry, cry, till your tears run dry

Have you seen your darkest day

 

Face down lying on the cold hard floor a deadweight crushing me

Empty hearted behind closed doors in quiet agony

Goodbye dream child, my heart’s delight, go to your destiny

On this dread day when all is scattered and only pain will stay

  

Lalala, lalala

When the day comes when all is broken there’s nothing left to say

Lyrics

The Girl with Clouds in Her Eyes

 

I saw her sitting there

Alone upon a hill

The wind was in her hair

So fair, so sad, so still

The girl, with clouds in her eyes

The girl, with clouds in her eyes

 

Above the battle cries, I heard her call to me

We both soon realized it was our destiny

We tried to break the ties, so plain for all to see

That I would, if I could

Set her free

 

Where babbling brooks do fall, in forests dark and deep

In secret hidden halls, our love we tried to keep

Then came that fateful call, how sorrowful did she weep

Close the door to ever more to

Our bond cast to sleep

 

I saw her sitting there alone upon a hill

The wind was in her hair

To wed one day we will

Lyrics

Je partirai

(paroles: Paul Savoie)

 

Ah que la nuit vienne me surprendre

Je resterai là seul sans me défendre

Je partirai en grand voyage            

Je coulerai sur un rêve, sur un rivage

Et puis après, je reviendrai peut-être

Et personne ne pourra me reconnaitre

 

Ah que le rêve vienne pour me prendre

Ne restez pas là à m’attendre

Je suis maintenant en évasion

Sur une barque, sur une aile, sur l’illusion

Et puis un jour je reviendrai peut-être

Et personne ne pourra me reconnaître

 

La pluie frappe à ma fenêtre

Le vent frappe à ma porte

Je n’ouvrirai pas, je ne bougerai pas, je resterai là

Pour que le rêve m’emporte

 

Ah que la nuit vienne me surprendre

Je resterai là seul sans me défendre

Je partirai en grand voyage

Je coulerai sur un rêve, sur un rivage

Et puis après, je reviendrai peut-être

Et personne ne pourra me reconnaitre

Lyrics

Emmène-moi

(paroles: Paul Savoie)

 

 Fais–moi oublier si tu peux

Je veux m’éparpiller, être en feu

Disparaître un peu, je joue le jeu

Je veux planer, fais-moi voler

Je veux m’en aller au large à cause de tes yeux

Je veux m’éclipser, emmène-moi

C’est toi qui as le feu, fais-moi partir encore une fois

Si tu veux

Emmène-moi, emmène-moi, emmène-moi, ah

 

Il n’y a pas de nuage

Il n’y a pas de limite

Nous faisons un long virage

Et nous entrons en orbite

L’Univers s’aggrandit

Nous voyons la Terre au loin

Nous planons sur l’infini

Nous reviendrons demain

 

 

Et fais-moi swinger si tu peux

Je veux m’écarteler, être deux

Me multiplier, je veux danser

Je tourne en rond, J’oublie mon nom

Je veux m’en aller au large à cause de ton corps

Je veux démarrer, emmène-moi

C’est toi qui est le port, laisse-moi te retrouver

Une fois encore

Emmène-moi, emmène-moi, emmène-moi, ah

Lyrics

Bonne route ami

 

 

 

Refrain

Mais çà ne sert à rien, c’est comme ça que je m’en souviens

Tous ces instants, tous ces liens, dans cette d’où il ne sort rien

Quelques fois dans une vie, s’ouvre une fenêtre et on respire

Mais quand c’est fini, bonne route ami.

 

L’Oncle Tom , Henri Burger, Macon rouge, Barton et Guestier

Le Louis IX, Le Pied de Cochon, sortons ce soir il fait si bon

Sans dessein, sans chimère, c’est quand il fait noir qu’on y voit clair

Danse de nuit, danse assis, danse jusque dans mon lit

 

 

L’art dans l’art, Béru, San A, Rougon Macquart, Emile Zola

Michel Serrault, Denner, Lino, perdons nous ce soir dans le métro

Toute une vie, La Bonne Année, larmes aux yeux, les yeux fermés

Images de vie dans nos coeurs épris, qui se ressemblent s’assemblent en s’aimant tendrement

 

 

Dyonisos, Brel, 10cc, Offenbach au St-Denis

Oxygène, Kraftwerk, Vangelis, Lucky Man au Stade Olympique

Grand voyage dans le petit bonheur, la vie est belle, partons sans peur

Coeur battant, au même moment, hors du temps, au même rythme

Lyrics

Hotel de Ville

 

 Sitting in my empty room on the second floor

The smell of stale perfume after another empty score

I’m not even trying to see where I‘m going, parts unknown

Just an endless stream of days and nights here on my own

 

I I don’t care what I, what I find behind, behind that door

All I had is gone, been taken away from me

My home, my life, my love, my little family

 

I get into a fight almost every night

My friends are asking me what’s gotten into me

There’s no answer just an empty space

A dark shadow across my face

 

 

I’m back in my lonely room, rue Hotel de Ville

Sitting in the gloom, shadow on me still

What’s it going take to get back home

Help me here for God’s sakes, hmm the telephone

 

Hello…..yeah.. no I, no I don't think so... no, no, for few months?..No, I don't think so.... maybe for good though.... yeah.... yeah for good
