Tapes 03:29
Watching all the tapes from that old camera Family memories put in front of my eyes I can see the profiles and even hear the voices Of people gone for good now, invisible today I suddenly realize It seems we are as happy as we could have been back then From what i remember In this film I’m the little kid Telling lots and lots of nonsense Making funny faces In this film I’m the little kid celebrating every significant dates every birthday, declaration of faith way too many cakes, way too many glasses for a few hours or more we’d be all together, repeating tradition it seems we are as happy as we could have been back then from what i remember in this film i’m the little kid telling lots and lots of nonsense making funny faces in this film i’m the little kid talking lots and lots of nonsense my brother would direct it watching all the tapes, from that old camera : family memories

the sun is rising up, sooner today it is, a new one it’s been years now since we have been in peace you and me Cause now we’ll be free, And walking hand in hand we’ll smiles so stupidly New world is coming and we don’t want much order, right ? Feeling the change, in the tiny little things How much we care, for small magic Today we feel as new, it’s like we are born again A new world, a new us A new world, a new us Cause now we’ll be free, And walking hand in hand we’ll smiles so stupidly New world is coming and we don’t want much order, right ?

Avalon 04:02
You’re such a dreamer with stupid ideas Don’t get me wrong, I like you a lot You should wake up, before it’s late It’s not a lie, it’s what you are You wish to find your Avalon A place where peace is all around You wish to find your Avalon A place no one but you can ever find I disagree, I’m just a child I don’t see the world, the way you do And I prefer to live in there It’s way better, maybe safer I wish to find my Avalon A place where peace is all around I wish to find my Avalon A place no one but me can ever find

The rain has fallen on the green valley Birds are quite only the trees are happy to be Happy to be Cows are feeding, rather fast They look so small from there Under their the grass makes a particular noise A particular noise Cars are passing so very far They seem to fly the land Noise free, noise free How did I get there ? I should get in now

Here’s the living room in wood and clay A table too big for myself The yellow shelf and there crawl too many books The dog is here with me at night What a perfect picture : a companion when I write When I’m down Too many songs were born in there Can’t explain what gives me these words and melodies I never ask I’m just a bag full of sorrow and full of regrets And I don’t know what to do I feel alone in the busiest crowd in the heart of London but who the hell are you people? I’m unable to write something good I’m just filling the lines The notebook is almost full, I need a new We’ll be together in a while Do I feel special, simply glad ? It’s so difficult to say Now, I should get going it’s late The eyes are closing by themselves The living room is so quite Where is the dog ? I’m just a bag full of sorrow and full of regrets And I don’t know what to do I feel alone in the busiest crowd in the heart of London But who the hell are you people?

Have you ever been to the isle of time ? I’ve heard that’s where you can become a child again What if you could go back in your past Will you do the same, will you change nothing at all ? What if we say we can do it all again, Would you like to take that ride again ? Have you ever fear to vanish away ? Crushed by the wheels, or just getting ill, so stupid What if you could go back in time Will you meet the people you did in this life ? You’re no sure What if we say we can do it all again, Would you like to take that ride again ?

Such A Waste 05:48
Hello friend, we haven’t talk in a while Where have you been ? We’ve been searching for you You say you are happy the way you are And we all know how you burn inside You’re such a waste Oh such a waste And you drag yourself down Oh my friend, you don’t seem to see the love There is for you to take, if you dare to You say you are happy the way you are But we all know how you’re torn appart You’re such a waste Oh such a waste And you drag yourself down

Wake Me Up 03:15
Wake me up in the morning when I can’t get out of this bed I’ve been alone for way too long, mind-trapped in dark land Wake up my soul, in the night When it’s cold, when I can’t ask for help For you’re a diamond and I’m just a stone, waiting to be crafted Show me the way, or lend me the tools Take my pain away Wake me up, in the night When it’s cold, when I can’t ask for help Wake up my soul, in the night When it’s cold, when I can’t ask for help

Seul avec son ordinateur et ses bidouilles, Vincent Retg s'emploie à créer des chansons pop/electro à la frontière entre les Kings of Convenience et Postal Service, servie par une voix touchante et sur le fil.
