Honey, listen to the story of that girl who is trying to see what life has next for her. This story of that girl, I think it might be mine, did I learn from the past, did I run too fast Am I the one that I pretend to be, trustin’ the empathy and the humanity, Honey, teach me the humility that I can trust people when they say they love me Honey, life is such such a long long turn, made of guns n’ roses, made of fuck n’ fun. I can’t forget I’m an old punkie doll and I forget all but rock n’ roll. Honey Life is such such a long long run, made of fears and doubts, made of twist and turns And I’m scared of so so many things, that I’m not even sure the way I have to live with Am I the one that I pretend to be, trustin’ the empathy and the humanity, Honey, teach me the humility that I can trust people when they say they love me Give me the ticket that I join the race, the winner ticket that I find my place That I reach that thing I’m looking for, me a girl of nothing but fighting for all Am I the one that I think I should be, trying to raise my spirit, or just trying to be Honey, let me fly to the bright side where people knows that love never die Honey, Love is such such a long long turn made of fuck and run, made of tears and learn If I let my deep thoughts allowed to come out, At the top of my voice, you can hear me shout Those are dry thoughts from an old baby doll, trying to prevent from a long long fall I know what about I’m asking for, Love for all of us more and more Honey, honey, that I can rely on the humanity Honey, teach me the humility That I can trust people When they say they love me.. Honey learn I the simplicity that I can love people when the say they love me Honey, honey…. Honey.. that I can love people when they say they love me

Boy there is wire pluggin’ me in the ground Boy there is a wire pluggin’ me in the underground And boy there is a line linkin’ me up to the sea Linkin’ me up to the cedar tree And you know, there is a string boy, Joinin’ me up to the Stars, Joinin’ me up to the fairy tales Once upon a time when I used to be Cinderella Once upon a time when I used to live in Shangri-La I wish i could find the right time, the right place, I wish I could find You say I’m the white queen Riding a black horse in your golden fields Breaking hearts and breaking the rules Sowin needs of a brigadoon Boy there is a wire pluggin’ me in the dusk Boy there is a wire pluggin’ me in the underworld And boy there is a line linking me up to the silver bells Linking me down to the cockleshells And you know, there is a spire pluggin’ me to those broken walls pluggin’ me to those freaky falls When I used to dance along the fence at night over the city lights I wish I could find the right man, the right game, I wish i could find You say I’m the white queen Riding a black horse in your golden fields Breaking hearts and breaking the rules Sowin’ needs of honeymoons You say I’m the white queen Connected to your deepest thrills Sowin’ seeds of ambiguity Breathin’ poetry as a certainty You say I’m the white queen Connected to your ecstasy Sowin’ needs of eternity Breathin’ confidence as an evidence boy there is a fire burning me soul and skin boy there is a fire burning me & my pumpkin

I bled my body dry, as a bone And I walked through the desert, naked alone I sold my soul for a midnight dance, a game to chance For a taste of the light of the moon You say you want to pull the strings of my fate I say I’m sorry, it’s too late You say you want to pull the strings of my fate I say I’m sorry, no regrets to replace THose days went back from the past Sure your branded me for life and you come back to the fold - Just for love Give me a smile, not a kiss, I just get by No cry my eyes anymore, Weeks & days You say you want to pull the strings of my fate I say I’m sorry, it’s too late You say you want to pull the strings of my fate I say I’m sorry, no regrets to replace My body is sick of being the shell of inarticulate words left unsaid Love could be starting again, anytime You say you want to pull the strings of my fate I say I’m sorry, it’s too late You say you want to pull the strings of my fate I say I’m sorry, no regrets to replace You say you never loved with such a grace I say I never wanted to loose your trace You say you only want a drink of my lips And I watch my ghost drift off in a phantom ship

Have you been around all that’s shining but t’is not gold Have you let destiny messing around with your soul Trying to do the right thing, trying to do the right thing, man I feel here & there T’is not really the same How long could I be still dealing with that game Burning me deep inside Burning all things through my life So much confusion, It has never been because of you but I confess to a liking of love. I’ve enough clouds are piling up. Don’t my hopes bite the dust. Trying to do the right thing, trying to do the right thing, man I still have to find out what could patch things on, how long could I be still fighting, fighting for LOVE And I’m trying things deep Inside Trying all those things through my life So much confusion, I need a little hush just need a little hush

You can find Sue in a blue dress Fishnet stockings over her long legs Floatin’ red hair, and playing chess A white skin of silk, a ponytail, a sunny face Sue is a bookworm setting her mind at rest Readin’ the book of Powers, the 2 brothers’s quest Readin’ george Orwell, as well “1984” (nineteen eighty-four) she says, hé hé hé And You penetrate the secrets of my days “The Time of our singing” she says, hé hé hé And You penetrate the secrets of my days Obviously, Sue is not a « readymade » Obviously, she’s out of reach of the average She’s got Stiletto heels and long legs A blackpearl necklace, such a fancy face Sue loves readin’ Burgess & William Blake And she offers books to her lovers Could they ever understand She put her life in their hands Could they ever understand You will catch Sue at the first look Walking the flea market for second hand books Sue is driving her life for chess and books Just found Borges just found Easton Ellis, thanks Bret And she offers books to her lovers Could they ever understand She’s got their life in her hands Could they ever understand And Sue slaughters all her lovers They could never understand That she ‘s got their whole life in her hands Could they ever understand And every day ; Sue’s lovers say What’s hot im my days , hé hé hé “American Psycho” she says, hé hé hé What’s hot im my days , hé hé hé “Dreamtigers” she says, hé hé hé What’s hot im my days , hé hé hé “A clockwork orange” she says, hé hé hé What’s hot im my days , hé hé hé “1984” (nineteen eighty-four) she says, hé hé hé Never mind the book she says…

No place like home There is no place like home And I hope it won’t take too long To find each other In the final chapter Love is the question,Love is the answer To find each other You’ve mentionned your fears We have to learn to live with And never look backwards At the garden of paradise No place like home There is no place like home We’ve been friends and lovers for a long time Have you saved a part of me In the back of your mind Still strong Inside No place like home and no place like your heart No better land to seed Those pretty kind of words I need Love is the question Love is the answer To find each other In the final chapter

I should have been an architect dreaming of construction, upon my deck, step by step I should have built a house of my desire with walls of glass and golden spire I should have been an architect But I’ve built my life more carelessely Listening to the best of Chet Baker I ‘ll make it last forever Listening to the best of Chet Baker I should have built a palace in the sky and lain on a balcony of stars making love until the day I die on a king-sized bed of fiery meteors I would have seen the man who’s dancing on the moon My lover once but he lost the tune I’ve built my life more carelessely Listening to Chet Baker LIstening to Chet Baker I should have been many other things like a church bell ringer A jet set swinger, a flower smeller, a carol singer But I will sing, NON je ne regrette rien Non je ne regrette rien Listening to the best of Chet Baker

They keep speaking about all the Madness Volcanoes gone crazy on the planet But Madness has nothing to do With the end of the world Birth is a land out at sea And we are all sailors, we are all sailors The rock of time keeps taunting me It’s not about clocks, timetables not about ferries Ships on a cruise which come or don’t come It’s time, time, time Time as a whole, And that is the great mistake And we are sailing away My sailors and me On a sea without hope Madmen stand here at the helm Screaming with laughter, screaming with pain But Madness has nothing to do With the end of the world .. And we are sailing away My sailors and me On the deep green sea of history The rock of time keeps taunting me But I keep running, I keep dreaming idle fancies Plotting my own true stories which come or don’t come It’s time, time, time Time as a whole, And that is the great mistake

Sous le pont des hasards, coule la scène étrange De mes tranches de vie qui défilent et se rangent Selon une mise en scène où n’entrent pas les anges Tout d’abord je cherche ce qui ressemble À chaque pièce du jeu que malgré moi j’assemble Mais je ne vois pas les choses dans leur ensemble Dans un premier réflexe je réfléchis Es-ce que çà infléchit le cours de ma vie De choisir mon camp quand je ne sais pas quand Ni dans quelle mesure j’ai la vue sur la vie Moi qui croit toujours être libre de mes actes Je constate que je marche sur un fil à la patte Alors sur le fil du rasoir je vais m’asseoir Je cherche l’essentiel en regardant le ciel Mais sous la pluie des comètes où êtes-vous Faites vous partie des loups partie des fous Qui me gardent au bout de mon ombre Pour éviter que je ne tombe Dans un premier réflexe alors je me souris Est-ce que çà infléchit le cours de ma vie Je table sur l’instinct, je reconnais l’instant Inimitable, indubitable Cet instinct de survie Est-ce que çà infléchit le cours de ma vie Est-ce que çà infléchit le cours de ma vie There is something to be said for giving love another chance Another chance Call my name again Call my name again and again From where you are, call my name again

Everyone of us sometimes learns When things go wrong and they sometimes do Everyone of us never can tell how close we are and yet so far Love is never under control It may fly from a distant soul a blind confidence with no defense, that makes all the difference, that makes all the sense Like strangers trying to tempt our fate we just carry on without a break Looking for something beyond the wall a glimmer of hope and grounds for love Life goes on for good or ill and we are like a sail that only love can fill Looking for what we are missing most A glimmer of hope and grounds for love

Watine Paris, France

Mozart disait : Je cherche les petites notes qui s’aiment ...
Quelque part entre le spleen lumineux et le soleil noir, Watine invite son piano épique au milieu des cordes et des vents à partager les sons electro et ses enregistrements de musique concrète . La liberté dans la solitude, la solitude dans l'amour. Un hymne à la vie. ... more
