Track Name: Northern Citylights
hi, it’s been a long way home
i’ve seen the light
i’ve seen your dark eyes too
if you want me to close mine
let me do

hi, i’ve walked through ancient lines
i’ve seen your mind
i’d paint it all in blue
if you want me to close mine
watch me do

tie your hair to my skyline
we’ll walk through time
we’ll break it all in two
we’ll paint it all in blue
Track Name: Make Them Windows
tip toeing in while i tiptoe out
what streets you’re taking
echoeing in, echoeing out
the space invading

you’re giving me so much
with these tiny moves of yours
everytime you touch
the wall with these delicate hands of yours

of yours

you gather from the citylights
the beat you’re living on
i could stand there and watch you all night
only keeping on

you’re giving me so much
with these tiny moves of yours
everytime you touch
the wall with your delicate hands

of yours
you make them windows
you make them windows

when i go in circles
each time i am amazed
you hold the keys
to the end of the maze

you make them windows
Track Name: Mary
mary, mary was a child once, mary
mary, mary had fair eyes once
and they were too big for her
but they, but they, but they closed once
but they, but they closed, once

mary, mary was, mary was, mary was a child

for all i know, she could still see the red flames burning through the screen
for all i know she could still feel the coal between her fingertips, crumbling

mary, mary was, mary was, mary was a child

and she shall never see again
for an eyelid is enough of an open gate
and a hand enough to feel the pain
she shall never see again
for the naked truth is always easier to bear
with rain smothering the flames

i’ll keep on smothering the flames after you
i’ll keep on smothering the flames after you

one two three four, & when you set the house on fire, you
leave our chests to
heave, our hearts to
bleed, our homes to
burn ; the way you let them burn
and get away with it

i’ll keep on smothering the flames after you
i’ll keep on smothering the flames after you

one two three four, & when you leave me in the corner, you
use our tired
faces, our broken
voices, our dust to
ashes

ah, ah
Track Name: Crowds (feat. Lukaz)
ils sont tous là l’matin
dans l’tintamarre de l’aube
pêcheurs et mouettes, marins
c’est toute une foule qui fraude
combien sont-ils ici
combien sont illicites
ils partent pour aujourd’hui
avec leur coque qui gîte
et demain, quoi ?
est-ce qu’ils vont revenir
est-ce qu’on les reverra
c’est pas l’moment d’mourir

crowds, they make my world, oh
crowds, they fill my world
as they fill my house

crowds, i see them swirling, oh
crowds, i see them dancing, oh

and i
i'm standing there
i'm standing still

and i
i’m standing there
i’m standing still
i’m on your way

au bar t’étais mon pote
rencontré dans la bière
tu pars et je sanglote
reviens ou j’f’rai pas l’fier
j’vous vois
bateaux, et puis des points
tout au bout de mes doigts
en pointillés distincts
bande de traits d’union
imposteurs de l’azur
imitateurs d’alcyons
y a une chose qui est sûre
vous r’viendrez

crowds, they suffocate me
crowds, i cannot breathe
too many people, too much noise

crowds, how do i tell you
that i’m there too

and i
i'm standing there
i'm standing still

and i
i'm standing there
i'm standing still
i’m on your way

crowds, i see you leaving and i

i wanna shout you all to come back
get the hell back here

revenez
depuis l’enfer des pôles

i wanna shout you all to come back
get the hell back here

revenez
on ouvre à la même heure

i wanna shout you all to come back
get the hell back here

pour remplir le café
et laver
les futurs les corps le sel
les lendemains cornés
et la couleur du ciel
Track Name: Nevermind The Cold
c’est l’hiver entre les douces lueurs nordiques
perchée sur les épaules de ce grand voilier
la fumée de la cheminée se mêle à celle qui se forme devant ma bouche quand je respire

tu viens de pointer le bout de ton nez pour vérifier que tout va bien
et tu m’a proposé ton manteau, à porter par dessus mon vieux pull

i guess
i must
have been feeling pretty cold
less than five minutes ago
but skin
and brains
are what they are and i
forgot what cold feels like

& i’m feeling so good it’s like i could stay here forever
nevermind the snow
nevermind the cold
warmth is in people’s hearts and eyes
up here
and when the sun is up
it shines so completely
on everyone’s face
i’ve never felt more at home

eyes hooked on
the horizon
it looks like i’m contemplating
but ego
and brains
are what they are and i
i’m concentrating
hard on
where the sweater ends
and where the coat begins
but i don’t have a clue
cause skin don’t reach out there

& i’m feeling so good it’s like i could stay like this forever
nevermind the snow
nevermind the cold
warmth is in people’s hearts and eyes
up here
and when the sun is up
it shines so completely
on everyone’s face

i’ve never felt more at home
haven’t had enough of it
but i’ve got to deal with it
the time’s gotta come

but don’t you worry i’ll be back
don’t you worry i’ll be back

my sweet, sweet citylights
i'll be back
