lyrics

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
And 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
Because it is somehow relieving
That some things are left untouched,
Unshattered, uncorrupted
By your will to disappear

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
