Track Name: Everywhere I go
Everywhere I go

I traveled to the pyramids, the Taj Mahal
To great cities like Paris, Tokyo, New York
But everywhere, Ooh, I go
I see the same two initials, a D a heart an S
Did you come here before me, to make me think of us
It wasn’t me, Ooh, was it you?
Wish it was you, tell me it’s you

Throw a penny in a fountain, for good fortune
Look at the sky catch a shooting star, make a wish
Light a candle in a sacred place, a fire on a cairn
There’s a thousand different ways, to send you my love
From everywhere, Ooh, I go
Everywhere, Ooh, I wanna go with you

I’ve seen our initials, carved on trees
Tagged on a bathroom door, dug into a beach
I’ve seen them hieroglyphed, on Oscar Wilde’s tomb
On someone else’s body, they were tattooed
Everywhere, Ooh, I go
Everywhere, Ooh, I see signs of you
Everywhere, Ooh, I go
Everywhere, Ooh, I leave signs for you
Track Name: Your love through her
Your love through her

Just one kiss
Is not enough
Feels like a piece of candy that melted in my mouth
You left me dry
Wishing for more
You come and go like the wind in my hair
with you I never know

I wanna be her lips, be her skin
Feel your love through her
I wanna be her thighs, be her bliss
So you think of me instead

A second of peace
Another blow
This time you hit me off the ground right into the core
What did I do to you, I feel
Like a scarecrow
You run from me, to her, every time you get real close

I wanna be her lips, be her skin
Feel your love through her
I wanna be her thighs, be her bliss
So you think of me instead

Just one kiss
That was enough
You took the piece of candy, left the wrapper in my mouth
Did you come to me
To better toss
Away the love, that you know
I’ll always have

I wanna be her lips, be her skin
Feel your love through her
I wanna be her thighs, be her bliss
So you think of me instead
Track Name: In parallel
In parallel

You drive down your highway
I wander on my dirt path
You sail with the sky
I can find neither north or south
You know where you’re pointing
I’m threading in circles
You got your head on your shoulders
Mine’s been up in the clouds

To each our road
Wish ours ran close
Enough that we could
From time to time
Walk it hand in hand

You’re down to earth
I get caught up in fairytales
You know fiction from real
I cry at drive-in movies
Your pace is steady
I can’t read speed limits
You choose to ride alone
I can’t be without you in my life

To each our road
Wish ours ran close
Enough that we could
Get to a crossroad again

You lost me in traffic
I got stopped at a red light
You raced around a curve
So fast I couldn’t catch up

To each our road
Hope ours runs close
Enough that we can
From time to time
To each our road
Hope ours runs close
Enough that we can
From time to time
Walk it hand in hand
Or side by side, in parallel
Hand in hand or side by side, in parallel
Hand in hand or side by side, in parallel
Track Name: Quelle grâce
Quelle grâce

Toi qui bouffe la vie, tu me mets en appétit
T’as réveillé ma chair, trop longtemps endormie
Toi qui me donne soif, merci tu as guéri
Mon mal d’être sur terre, et mon coeur endolori

Je veux tout goûter, jouir à en crever
Plus jamais souffrir ou tout envoyer chier
Y a déjà trop de misère, j’en crache j’en vomis
Malgré toutes les prières, y a pas encore de paradis

Tout est là ici bas, tout s’allume quand tu danses avec moi
Tout est là ici bas, inlassablement je me perds dans un tourbillon de toi

J’attendrais pas l’au-delà, je ferais plus semblant
Le bonheur n’est pas là-bas, mais dans mon corps et dans mon sang
J’veux croquer à pleines dents, me goinfrer de sensations
Chialer de plaisir, quelle grâce
D’être vivant

Quelle grâce
D’être vivant, d’être vivant
Quelle grâce

Tout est là ici bas, tout s’allume quand tu danses avec moi
Tout est là ici bas, quand j’me perds un peu plus contre toi
Tout est là ici bas, tout s’allume tout s’illumine en moi
Tout est là ici bas, inlassablement je me perds dans un tourbillon de toi
Inlassablement je me perds dans un tourbillon de toi
De toi
Track Name: Kiss me instead
Kiss me instead

Don’t trash me
The way you do
Don’t kill me
Before I’m dead

You did it so many times
I won’t take it
I’m on my seventh life
I won’t survive it

Stop ragging
On everything I do
You know I’m hurting
Do you want me to

You did it so many times
I won’t take it
I’m on my seventh life
I won’t survive it

With you I’ve gone through heaven
I’ve gone through hell
I stepped in and out of paradise
I tried to swim, to slide, to learn, to climb
To lift us up to the other side
I’ve been looking in between the lines
Between the words, between our lives
I’ve been holding on to paradise
Holding on to hell, holding on to love
I feel like running, running, running
To stop drowning, drowning, drowning
But I keep staying, staying, staying
Cuz I keep hoping for the other side

You did it so many times
I won’t take it
I’m on my seventh life
I won’t survive it
You did it so many times
I won’t take it
I’m on my seventh life
You know I’ve had it

Don’t trash me
The way you do
Don’t kill me
Kiss me instead
