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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 ..."
