Paroles / Lyrics

Every time I meet a guy like you
I think I can I think I can do… x2

It’s unfortunate
That unfortunate
This unfortunate meeting

I try to nurse and help you
But I get the wound instead of you
I find a carpet to cover you
And i get the cold instead of you

It’s unfortunate
That unfortunate
This unfortunate meeting

Sooner or later, I’ll have to change the way I do
Sooner or later, I’ll have to stop caring about you
Sooner or later, I’ll have to shun people like you

Every time I meet a girl like you
I think I can I think I can do…. x2

It’s unfortunate
That unfortunate
This unfortunate meeting

We are, what we are

We were what we were oooh

We are what we are
We missed what we missed

We were what we were oooh

We will be, we will be

Be be be, be the last one be
Be the mine be the one be the mind

We might be the soul of each others

Are we meant to be? are we meant te be?

Can we be we, will we be we, we will be we
Can we be we, will we be we, we will be we

So do we, so do we, do we

My girl is growing
My baby is a big girl, she grows & grows & grows
Come on bébé
« Walk walk talk talk walk walk

Look at you oscillating, standing up right up
impatient of meandering
You’re sometimes grumpy, but the moment you stand
Proud of yourself you smiling at me
Maneuvering confidently
Trying unremittingly, you’re not gonna miss it Missy

You no longer need my hand
You no longer need my help
No need hand

What do you say? Babbling amusingly, I think I get it
Your babble is clear, the tone you use imitating me
I think I get it
Gurgling confidently
Trying unresttingly
You’re not gonna miss it Missy

Have a little chat with me…
You’ve got the best speeches I’ve ever heard
The best singing I’ve ever heard.

Don’t tell me I’m wrong
For something like this
I am not enough strong

This is too hard for me

My self esteem is all ready low
My self esteem is despicable
I don’t disdain or hate myself
But in my eyes my reflexion is not always appreciate

This is unfair for me
If it’s not the truth
Don’t you tell me I’m wrong
The severity to myself is here for too long
It takes a long long time for me to feel fine
It takes me too much time for me to feel fine

This too hard for me

Ho oh oh oh

I found you weird this last day
I found you weird but anyway
I found you weird and I must say
The more I read the more I wanna go away

You must be kidding when you say
You must be lying or you play?
So good actress you are i must say
You swindled me bad but anyway

And i know, oh I know
I must be the cause, I think you said so
The cause of your pain your hard time your sorrow
I don’t think my back is big enough to carry it all

Oooh
Ho do you think you are, you’re the one
Unexpected bizarre, the weird one
I can’t believe I believed you this last time
But I thought you were sincere, I’m out of mind

You seemed so friendly and not cold
You looked even happy, but you were bored
You’ve definitely surprised me
Apparently, you have fun with nobody

You bitter girl, relentless chick
Sourpuss girl, raving lunatic
What we enjoyed now you criticize
Everything we’ve done, was it really that bad?

Like Buddha said «you’re anger is not mine»
Don’t put this weight on my shoulders

Ooooh oooh (i don’t want to talk to you…)

You bitter girl, relentless chick
Sourpuss girl raving lunatic
What we enjoyed now you criticize
Everything we’ve done, was it really that bad?
And i know, oh I know
I must be the cause, I think you said so
The cause of your pain your hard time your sorrow
I don’t think my back is big enough to carry it all

I’m doing this just for you
This is not a habit
This is not a hobby

Just just for you, I do it do it so it for you

You can count on my for this
I am not bored all ready
That’s what I wanna do
I will do will do will do
Just just for you, I do it do it do it for you

& you owe me nothing
No you owe me nothing
This is a due, this is a due

Maybe it’s natural
& completely normal
You naturally deserve it

It’s so special to have you
I’m so great I have you
we do it do it do it, because we love

Ooh hoo turn on the sound

Louder

Ooh hoo put on the sound

Louder

Ooh hoo keep it loud

Keep it keep it loud

Ooh hoo turn it into fire

Turn it into fire

Tout doux tout doux doux…

Still surprised I am, are you really growing
Still upground I am, increasing

(belly belly…)
Am i getting bigger? My heart fills up rapidly
Yes I’m getting bigger, very happily
I’m getting bigger, I’m getting bigger

I can tell, just as well

Still in zero gravity, someone’s taking place inside of me
Hard to believe hard to see, minuscule danse that I feel quietly

Tout doux tout doux doux…

It is you that I expect, you the finest
It is you that I expect, you the finest

(Belly belly…)
I can perceive you start to move, I all ready cherish you
I can perceive you start to move, the choreography you do
I can perceive you, I can perceive you

Tout doux tout doux doux…

(Belly belly…)
I am getting bigger, my heart fills up rapidly
I can perceive you inside me, I love you all ready

I love you all ready, I love you all ready
I can tell, just as well
I can tell just as well.

Where the hell are you? I just don’t have a clue
Where the hell are you? there’s noting in the flue
Where the hell are you? got no-one to pursue

No hidy-hole can take you out of my eyes
No hidy-hole can keep you out of my eyes
No hidy-hole can get you out of my eyes

Where the hell are you? I just don’t have a clue
Where the hell are you? there’s noting in the flue
Where the hell are you? got no-one to pursue

Is that too much to ask? Is that too much to ask?
Can you come down? can you come out?
Is that too much to ask? Is that too much to ask?
Can you show up? can you come out?
Is that too much to ask? Is that too much to ask?
Come along, will you come out!

Where the F are you? I am becoming blue
Where the damn are you? I am becoming blue
Where the heck are you? I am becoming blue

Pattern of blue, Pattern of blue
I know by heart this pattern of blue

Heyheyhey

Hoo oo oo Pattern of blue

I’m not interested in this pattern of blue
I am so sick of this pattern of blue
I’m getting tired of this pattern of blue
I’m irritated by this pattern of blue
I’m getting a headache, I’m getting a heartache, cause of this pattern of blue
I’m getting a headache, I’m getting a heartache, cause of this pattern of blue
I’m not interested in this pattern of blue
I’m getting tired of this pattern of blue
I’m irritated by this pattern of blue

Hey Lady of the sorrow..

You’re so close to freedom
So close to free your soul..

Detach yourself lady of the sorrow

Don’t let them play again, don’t let them

Hey lady of the sorrow.. (kicking their arse, kick their arse)

It’s closing time for you
Don’t let them come inside
Your mind

Shut you door
Will you shut your door.

Album Review

Duet, sixième album de l’enchanteresse Rivkah (cinq ans après Birthdayz), creuse le sillon de l’épure, du silence entre les notes, du pouvoir alchimique que pourrait provoquer chez l’auditeur une incantation sonore qui évacuerait le moindre surplus, la moindre fausse intention.
