Track Name: Soweto
I just sit tight
Waiting for an extra end
And my summer’s going
Very very warm

So you dance to Paul Simon
And you think to Chris Andrew

I just sit tight
Wondering why I’m home
And our summer’s going
Very very warm

I can see you dance to Paul Simon
And you think to Chris. Andrew

Now the room is full of thinkers
Waiting for the fifteen fifty break
And all their classmates left before they had to tell the joke
When they ask a 30 / 30 well I ll lost again
I’ll go
Maybe one more blonde one for the sunny road
My nba posters going yellow on the wall
And my name when it gets closer to last call
And your name when it gets closer to last call
Track Name: Rainy May
Most of the time locked on one speed
Down the same old road
Counting the signs and the sidelines
When your voice springs
Two parallels lines a heart’s racing
There’s a quiet place

Sleepless I’m gonna watch old photographs
So long since I haven’t seen the sun

Most of the time
It’s simple maths
My daughter’s the same
We look alright
but it changes so fast

Sleepless I’m gonna watch old photographs
So long since I haven’t seen the sun
It’s like rainy days
When it hits the window
I’d rather raise a woody shed
On the outside of Lyon

We try to breathe another night in Lyon
We try to change, another night in Lyon
Track Name: Tête d'Or (Le parc)
You speak too much alone but it’s alright
I’m leaving a few things at your place
A white shirt and some jeans
I’ll never pick ‘em up
coz I’m gonna live with you
I know these days are over
Wished they stayed a little longer
Accept the water has flown
Or you’ll sink like a stone
Track Name: Small talks
I can’t write it down
The joke’s not funny
I can’t spell it out
Your name’s uncanny
I don’t exactly know what I’m supposed to do
It’s a little silhouette that is fading out

Bitter problems, small worries.

Small talks are made out of little jokes
You probably don’t like
Sorry I didn’t get your name right
Oh whatever
So you decide to leave
Cuz all they do is talk, talk, talk.

I can’t write it down
The joke’s uncanny
I can’t spell it out
Your name’s not funny
Let’s sustain our agin’
and the way we’re trying
We are little silhouettes
that are fitting in
Track Name: Queen size sea
Standing outside watching the cars go by
I don’t really know if I wanna be here now
In the early morning rain I’m overthinking once again cause I feel no rush
I’d fall from a giant tree I’m lost in a queen-size sea

We’re paving our way to well-known borderlines
I really know I do want to be there now
On the early morning train I’m on everything
Because I stepped real nice
I’d fall in a thousand leaves


Winter spring summer fall repeat fun hoops
Drive runout lake swim reapat how do you say ?
High low bored psyched repeat how do you cope ?
Love learn watch die repeat nice to meet you
Track Name: In rilievo
A teenage dream of a ride supreme
We can talk about anything
Except the weather
The living room is so silent,
dead quiet like my stiffed muscles
I can’t stand anymore

There’s so much more that we can talk about
There’s so much more that we can talk about

The shape of water is the only thing
My eyes can see when they open in Michigan
It keeps me it keeps me up to the cold white tile
Now sing me something like smooth operator

There’s so much more that I can talk about

It keeps me up / It brings me down
Track Name: Pliocene
I’m naming every pain after anything I read on a webpage
I don’t sleep well too much anxiety piled up in me
I speed read my screen for techni-color dream and smoother nights

Shaking cold at night, there’s a part I can’t see right

Don’t wanna sleep to
Don’t wanna dream to
The sound of confusion

Hey doc, do I need a light prescription?
Hey doc, would you give me medication?
Help me to sleep well
With something else than pills
I just need to see you
And I feel better

Shaking off at night there’s a part I can’t see right
Shaking cold at night there’s a part I can’t see right
Track Name: Hey John
John Coltrane get out of my head
