about

"Pick of the month ... is Englishman Richard Lewis, exiled in France for five years. Classically trained under minimalist composer Brian Wilshere and by turns jazz drummer, folk guitarist and composer of scores, [he] has created a perfect synthesis of his various influences and experiences. His new album, "Untitled" is a small marvel, full of hidden treasures, for which he summons not only flighty bursts of avant garde piano and folky guitar picking but also organ, accordion and banjo. The talent and technical prowess of this top-level musician are placed beyond doubt: a kind of UFO in a world of self-produced work in which a garage tendency is the norm. After all these years of work, Richard Lewis has found the magic formula for a complex and extremely rich pop that one never tires of listening to. Difficult to single out a track, such is the success of all of these 11 titles, each of which is marked by the footprint of different musicians (there are ten guests on the album), who bring their touch of violin, oboe, theremin, flugelhorn or cello. Lovers of music and melancholy, this record could very quickly become your new favourite album ..."

Track Name: Brink
she's on the brink
life goes too fast
for her
if she goes for help
they'll take them away
they're all i have
all i have
all she has
Track Name: Secrets
sweet child of light
don't force that key
prayers answered with lies
a forced confession of grief
that's not god

oh my treasure
don't tell them anything
all your secrets
they're your secrets
they're not for sharing

peace, peace of mind
these things are free
don't pay their bills
no matter what they say
you don't owe a penny
for your soul

oh my treasure
don't tell them anything
all your secrets
they're your secrets
they're not for sharing
Track Name: Warm rain at the funfair
warm rain at the funfair
blue jeans and wild hair
i saw you first

sad dreams in a small town
all those breakdowns
don't you think it's time
you put them away
to bed, put them to bed

don't you ever shut up shouting?
i can't hear you speak

god fears and salt tears
all those dark years
don't you think it's time
you put them away
to bed, put them to bed

don't you ever shut up shouting?
i can't hear you speak
Track Name: I'm your cash
memories are meant for keeping
the fairy tales passed you by
so cut my vein and leave me weeping
cause life is an exchange
when all is said and done

no doubt about it
i'm your cash

you've got no taste for celebration
all you do is search for proof
living by manipulation
cause love is an exchange
now all is said and done

no doubt about it
i'm your cash
Track Name: Furieux pays
tranquille et calme
j'aurais pu tout avoir
mais seul je fonçais
rouvrir la page
sur une tragique histoire
qu'est-ce que je pensais ?

changer un avenir
par amour le guérir

tirer la ficelle
sur une boite oubliée
humide et moisie
des vieux souvenirs
abîmés par l'odeur
d'un parfum trop fleuri

et naïf et transi
j'aurais tout investi

mais qu'est-ce qu'on ne ferait pas
pour l'amour de soi ?
prendre n'importe quoi
tant qu'il y a d'émoi
jeter esprit et corps
au gouffre sans fond
flirter avec la mort
de ses rêves

j'ai tout de même rebondi
dans ce blême pays
tout de même rebondi
dans ce furieux pays
Track Name: Lie
you say it's nothing
but it weighs so much
the children are laughing
but you're cold to the touch
i loved you anyway
you wouldn't trust in me

someone was playing
a gypsy guitar
it seemed to be saying
we'd come too far
you went another way
i wouldn't follow you

lie lie lie lie lie
that's all you know
lie lie lie lie lie
there's nowhere to go

running from winter
takes us to hell
words crack and splinter
place st michel
you went another way
i wouldn't follow you

lie lie lie lie lie
that's all you know
lie lie lie lie lie
there's nowhere to go
Track Name: Sunchild
you're feeling weightless
at the border
check your papers
all in order
this foreign place
may seem colder
under the surface
something smoulders

don't look back
you're coming home

they will ask you
what's your business
your lineage
and origins
you can tell them
someone called you
from high above
their filthy city

don't look back
you're coming home
Track Name: All the good men
all the good men
gone by the wayside
all their portraits
leave marks on the wall

all the young days
lost in the country
the hurting and shame
the guilt and the blame

to each his own cross
secrets unburdened
the love and the loss
of what came before

now all the good men
are gone by the wayside
there's only the hurt
and the guilt and the blame

we are the stones
washed by the sea
we are the wind
the leaves on the trees
we are the soil
the stars and the moon
we are the fire
the light and the sun
we are the one

and the north wind will blow
your garden won't grow
for the skies they will know
the seeds that you sow
Track Name: Wings
lovers laugh
along the path
she walks to work
every morning
a fearful heart
she keeps apart
her careful art
of bright lights
yawning

take me with you

patient hands
feed dreams and plans
she stays awake
all night long
an empty space
she fills with grace
a foreign place
is calling to her

take me with you
Track Name: White tulips
in the morning
in the daylight
i hear her
she moves through
from the kitchen
to the bathroom
white tulips
from the market
and she sings

all your gold rings
all your green mantles
yarrow and yon
bonny pale woodbine
all your gold rings
all your green mantles
tatters and threads
all your old fragments all

in the morning
in the daylight
i hear her
she moves through
from the bramble
to the briar
white hyacinth
from the meadow
and she sings

all your gold rings
all your green mantles
yarrow and yon
bonny pale woodbine
all your gold rings
all your green mantles
tatters and threads
all your old fragments all
