Loss 03:16
I wish I could write a good song to everyone Who suffered from loss, who cannot bare much anymore It's complicated to confess what we feel inside our hearts Hang smiles on your face we'll make up the good life Most of the time Praying to the gods or fucking 'till the death We search for peace and happiness Waiting for the call, before the final rest We search for peace and happiness We search for peace and happiness I wish I could write a good song to everyone

Five Summers 03:42
Five summers we spent hanging on To dreams of something better Illusions and friends kept us On the good side of life Now we have to move Now we have to move on Now I don't see you around Where did you escape ? I sitting frustrated Not good for anything at all The rain keeps falling on The window seems to liquify Now we have to move Now we have to move on I suppose we should move on Where did you escape ? Five summers it's all that I can recall from you

The Shame 04:06
Empty your pockets You're under arrest You will remain here You'll remain silent We know that you done wrong to innocent people You're not ashamed We won't, we will never forget Bad guys from movies Hurt in real life Stop any business Stop for dignity We know that you done wrong to innocent people You're not ashamed We'll never forget

I wake up again way way too early I've already forgotten my dreams I'm going downstairs don't wanna disturb You can find me crying in the kitchen I live in a world I cannot understand : Connected glasses to the great worldwide Microchip in the arm so we can't disappear Buy and throw it away, buy and it throw away You're either with us or against Family breakfast I won't say a word The kids wagging loud I'm already bored My woman talks lot, answers to herself And I rumbled nothing pretty bright I will go to work to pay me a life A life I didn't meant to be that way Let's go somewhere far, I'll pick you at 9 We won't know at all where the hell to drive I get trapped in this nonsence though i don't buy the pretty words i spit the images of these women honey money silver and gold won't buy you a paradise like everyone you'll die You're either with us or against

Saint-Briac 03:46
Mon vieil ami dans les nuages Où es tu passé moi j'enrage Sous ce soleil radieux je n'sais si je dois être malheureux Enfin un peu quand même Quand même Toi l'entravé te voilà libre Après des années de douleur Ce fauteuil n'est plus qu'un souvenir Je sais que tu n'avais pas peur Mon vieil ami, t'es dans ta boite et ton esprit demeurera Et dans des temps meilleurs on sentira cette douceur Nous enlacer, nous protéger et le souvenir de nos fous rires Pour réchauffer nos coeurs blessés Nos coeurs blessés Sur la plage de Saint-Briac, le printemps était en avance Ton regard restera intact, et ton souvenir m'inspire une danse Je sais que tu es mieux là haut Courant derriere une comète Fin du clavaire du chemin de croix On pleure on rit et on te rejoint D'ici là... j'pense à toi Tu penses à moi ? Dis tu penses à moi ?

Dust 03:40
I looked upon your grave There was nothing here but dust I tracked your steps but I couldn't find you In the end Wish you'd still be here I checked every pictures It's funny how you look so young And cooked you a plate But I'll eat on my own, once again Hopefully time will heal The wound that's leaking from our hearts But none could ever tell How long it can take Wish you'd still be here Wish it was not for real I look upon your grave... there's nothing here but dust

Orange 03:21
J'ai écrit ces mots sur ton ombre J'ai laissé la peine m'envahir J'ai compté les heures les minutes les secondes Je n'te vois pas revenir Tu es parti depuis longtemps explorer d'autres paysages Le ciel est rouge, incandescent et la terre ne reçoit plus mes messages J'ai dessiné sur une orange Un visage qui n'veut rien dire Tu n'réponds pas, j'te dérange ? Je ne vois rien, laisse moi venir Tu es parti depuis longtemps explorer d'autres paysages Le ciel est rouge, incandescent et la terre ne reçoit plus mes messages Le temps s'efface, et nous laisse Ici, las, insensés, seuls et sans soupirs J'ai dessiné sur une orange Un visage qui n'veut rien dire Tu n'réponds pas, j'te dérange ? Je ne vois rien, laisse moi venir

Walls 04:00
I know that place i've been here before If only walls could talk they would tell you What it was in here : laughters and drinks The people and the food I know that sound it's like when you would Laugh at something stupid I would say But I turn my head back up And all that I can see is a reflection of myself There's a ghost who lives in here I swear I saw him Floating in the corridor I know that place i've been here before If only walls could talk they would tell you What it was in here

Landscape 03:55
Is there anywhere we can go ? I need a landscape, I want a landscape For sure I've been too far into dark This path I had to choose, you win and you lose Don't escape mirrors when you lie But accept who you are, accept who you are We learn, we love We learn, we try We love we cry I would love to say something nice But I remain silent you remain silent And I looked the sun on your face It's never been so bright, never been so bright We learn, we try We love, we cry But we'll never stop until our last breath of thin air It's time to renew yourself

about

Un album composé entre mars et juillet 2014. A peu près finalisé l'année suivante, je l'ai retenu longtemps... avant d'oser m'en séparer en ce début 2018.

Rempli d'approximations, et d'impuretés, il est tel qu'il est sorti quelques années auparavant, après un choc. Impossible d'en faire plus, mais j'avais envie (et sans doute besoin) de me détacher de ces titres.

Cet album est dédié à la mémoire de Matthieu Vial, aka "Monsieur Pouce", dont j'ai eu l'honneur de croiser la route entre 2009 et 2013. La rencontre la plus incroyable de ma vie jusqu'à présent.

----

An album I made back in 2014, barely finished demos in 2015 and held back until this beginning 2018. It's full of mistakes, noises and I just can't work on these tracks any more.

Dedicated to Matthieu Vial, my dear friend for about five years. Probably the biggest encounter in my life so far.

about

Vincent Retg London, UK

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.
