Track Name: My Favourite Song
I turn on the stereo
I play my favourite song
It's funny how it sounds the same
Funny how it hasn't changed at all
Since you left
With all the shatters and breaks
Now I'm just proud to stand here
And hum to this song
So Bonnie still beats the drums
Sings of an impossible love
I close my eyes, I know it's over
I pretend I'm just two months younger
As I haven't met you
I'm haunting a fading town
I'm lonely like a hunter
Lonely but strong

Outside, spring is blooming, ivy leaves are breathing in
And here we are, and it's a mystery
I hope that sparrows don't mock me
I know they're like people out there
They don't know and they don't care
And hopefully, summer will let me
Sing with them and dance again
Cause it's somehow relieving
That some things are left untouched,
Unshattered, uncorrupted
By your will to disappear
Track Name: Real Life
I’m not a book, I’m just looking for meanings
I’m not a painting, trying to colour up my life
I’m not a song, I just want to speak my mind
I’m not a movie, starving to look dark and sexy

Don’t take my pain for a piece of art, I’m moving on
Don’t take my hunger for desire, I’m moving on
Because I want a real life

I covered the pages of a lifelong diary
With all the little things that I wished for you and me
Our best friends at my birthday party
Your arms that made me feel both so loved and free

Don’t take my pain for a piece of art, I’m moving on
Don’t take my hunger for desire, I’m moving on
We’re all fighting the same battle, equally noble
Trying to stand on a slippery ground
Track Name: Old Rockers
They come from a time
When youth was young
When hope was easy
And revolution not gone
Beware! Old rockers are coming back
They're not even close to giving anything up

Their shining guitars, their glittering suits
Their teenage girlfriends and curly haircuts
Beware! Old rockers are coming back
And I'm not even sure they ever left at all

Standing on the tube walls, two meters high
They'll never clear the stage before they die
And you'll be too old then, already too old
I tell you their grandkids are ready to take it on

So all you can do is sing for yourself
In your room, sitting on your bed
It makes you feel better but it's just a selfish design
That's not much but it helps kill some time
Before time kills you, it helps kill some time
Track Name: You're A Tiger (Kitchen Session)
I'm not even in love with you
But I shiver when the phone rings
And if it happens to be you
My feet start weirdly shaking
I'm so happy when I find a way
To drop your name in a casual conversation
And get a chance to discuss you with my friends

I like to let them bring up the subject
We often talk about this anyway
And I'm not even in love with you
It hasn't started yet
So be careful !
Don't go break my heart
Like it doesn't matter to you
With this charming smile of yours
Darling you're a tiger with soft skin
Darling you're a tiger with soft skin
Track Name: Real Life (Kitchen Session)
I’m not a book, I’m just looking for meanings
I’m not a painting, trying to colour up my life
I’m not a song, I just want to speak my mind
I’m not a movie, starving to look dark and sexy

Don’t take my pain for a piece of art, I’m moving on
Don’t take my hunger for desire, I’m moving on
Because I want a real life

I covered the pages of a lifelong diary
With all the little things that I wished for you and me
Our best friends at my birthday party
Your arms that made me feel both so loved and free

Don’t take my pain for a piece of art, I’m moving on
Don’t take my hunger for desire, I’m moving on
We’re all fighting the same battle, equally noble
Trying to stand on a slippery ground
