Track Name: WATER'S EDGE feat. KAREN LUKE
He has gone
Heaviness lifts like mist
On a crisp, spring morning,
Letting light lengthen
Into the corners of the room.


Time returns with thoughts
That bounce along the lily pads,
Laughing and skipping,
Singing and dancing,
As a butterfly rests its wings


I breathe
In and out, to and fro,
The balloon bobs in the air,
Shaking loose the leaves
That quiver and fall into the water.
He has taken the road
Long and lonely, it winds, relentless.
Wretched, it stretches,
Deeper and darker,
Wider then narrower,
Long and lonely,
On and on.


The water ripples
Winds whisper the season’s changing clime,
Thinning the branches
Thickening the gorse,
As the butterfly disappears.


He's out the other side
The beaten track burning
The place where the rivers merge, spin
That mountain
That ocean
That city where the lights dance, sing
The rhythm of a different beat.


Winter's in the water
A dance in ice laced with snow
Freezing that taste of where your thoughts go
Along the valley
And up the spine
Within, without
The bracken, the vine


The white carpet cakes the heath
Now I can see this,
Now he has gone.

I breathe
In and out, to and fro,
The balloon bobs in the air,
Shaking loose the leaves
That quiver and fall into the water.


He has taken the road
Long and lonely, it winds, relentless.
Wretched, it stretches,
Deeper and darker,
Wider then narrower,
Long and lonely,
On and on.


That mountain
That ocean
That city
Where the lights dance...
Track Name: SIGNIFICANT OTHERS feat. COCO JONZA
It's a brand new day
Get a coffee anyway
It's the order of the day
Is the sun already up ?

(mysterious french spoken words)

Tatoue-moi les contours de ma ville
Détoure-moi la peau des buildings au pastel gras
Le ciel du matin, gris le jour, peau-de-chagrin
Carreaux givrés, un grain de beauté
Boots en Hiver, sandales en Eté
Noam, tu cherches les saisons
Partir à l'heure, partout ailleurs...
Track Name: DREAM IT feat. AWA SY
I like to dream, at night
because I can be whoever I want
do what I wish to do
my nightmares are cool too

my boyfriend hates, that situation
because when I ask him to go to bed
it's never for that sweet temptation
but always for what's gonna be in my head



What I wish to do
If only I had known about it

What I wish to do
I wish I could have stayed that magnificent in the morning

What I wish to do
I wanna keep those green eyes

What I wish to do
As brilliant as in that dream, let me be that way even if it's unwise.



Automatic, happiness seeker
Down through the ages, throughout the world
Set the alarm for one hour later
Baby please take me at my word

Beautiful counting rhyme
Every night in every corners of the globe
Snooze it one more time
As I can fly, fly a little more



What I wish to do
If only I had known about it

What I wish to do
I wish I could have stayed that magnificent in the morning

What I wish to do
I wanna keep those green eyes

What I wish to do
As brilliant as in that dream, let me be that way even if it's unwise.



Dream it
The day I walk in town, the night I rule the world

But each time a loved one passed away
I was waiting for the night to meet again
We danced and laughed through a shiny day
The day I walk in town, please let me be that way
Track Name: IN BETWEEN feat. CAMILLE DELAGE
I was right, you are not that soldier
who was going to make us go trought the storm
Overseas ain't no express carrier
to proclaim my love ain't no shortened form


For that reason, I am starting to wonder
On the high seas, things are not as they should be.


Distance is just a space in between
Chance is to see your name on my screen
your hidden feelings, your shy words, please make it deeper
baby please, baby please don't fall on your sword

Anytime, anywhere
Track Name: RING ROAD
Let's go fast
Before it's too late

One hour left
Is it a matter of fate


Swirl of smoke
And car radio

You take the ring road
No other way to go


You are jumping
Far into the night

Mystically reflecting
All the city lights


One-way street
Hypnotic trance

You're dying with sleep
But could you just give it a chance



Please go fast...
Track Name: 133 feat. VALLI
When you dream about heaven
It makes you wanna die



You gotta feel the vibe
But you will play it down
Was the talk of the town
You're inspiring jibes, cause you're a bit strange

You gonna live at night
And you gotta make it right
You gotta bring me down
Cause like a water sprite, you're a flood of light
That's right



When you dream about heaven
Tt makes you wanna die


You gotta feel the vibe
But you will turn round
You gonna let us play
You gotta bring me down, tied and bound

You gonna hold me tight
And yvou gotta make it right
you gonna reach the sky
cause like a water sprite, you're a flood of light
That's right




When you dream about heaven
It makes you wanna die

Ask for the 7th destination
But do it on the sly

'Cause if your mum sees you smiling
She will keep you by her side

A sense of hope abounds
She ain't gonna cry

On the high seas of loneliness
I'll take you for a ride

The curtain drops
I swear I'll remember you
As the one who reached the shores of a strange new land

Let's go...
