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

Real Life 03:14
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

Old Rockers 03:26
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

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

about

Pollyanna Paris, France

A (French) indie-folkster. Her honest songwriting and her heart-warming voice has led her to share the bill with riot grrrls stars (Sleater Kinney), sophisticated indie pop (Wilco), chanson (Françoiz Breut), rootsy folksters in Tennessee and shanty choirs in Germany. Her experiences as an outsider (in Europe and the Americas) open up her musical field to all things pop, rock, folk and folklores. ... more
