Like sunshine after rain Gone the cold, gone the snow The days are long, the winter’s warm Gone the tears, the fallen leaves I feel the sunshine It feels like sunshine after rain You’re everywhere, I lay my head You feel like home to me, you’re like a tree Going places, mending pieces I feel the sunshine I feel your sun shine on my skin Where the rivers go And the flowers show Where the flames grow I flow to you Laying still, in the field All around, cicadas sing And in the hay, in the marsh’s maze I feel the sunshine I feel your heart in the summer heat Where the rivers go And the flowers show Where the flames grow I flow to you I flow to you You’re everywhere, I lay my head You feel like home to me, you’re like the sea Going places, finding peace I feel the sunshine It feels like sunshine after rain Where the rivers go And the flowers show Where the flames grow And the birds know Where the oceans glow And the dancers row Where the winds blow I flow to you

She-Wolf I feel desire pouring down my legs I feel it racing from my toes to my head Soft like the tingle of rain on my skin It whelms me over, I’m caving in It’s coming to me Like a rising tide Takes over the shore It’s coming to me Like a she-wolf the moon It calls me to you I’m flooding inside, I’m under water I’m slowly drowning but my river’s for you I was a pond, now I’m filled with lilies You make me blossom into a sea of swans It’s coming to me Like a rising tide Takes over the shore It’s coming to me Like a she-wolf the moon It calls me to you It’s coming to me Calls me to you To you I’m gonna knock down the walls That I built around me Give them to the tides Let the waves break me free I’m not gonna hide How I feel about you I give you my all Give you my all I feel desire like I never did I feel my body, sink and bleed My heart is sliding to the ocean floors You know it’s you I do I adore It’s coming to me Like a rising tide I ache for your shore It’s coming to me Like a she-wolf cries Calls out to the moon I call out to the moon

By my side Flying high Touching the sky Like I never have before I’m here I’m there I don’t know where I’m burning to the ground All I want is you, by my side, by my side All I want is you Here Raindrops In my eyes We’re caught between the lines Sunshine Thunderbolts Mixing in my mind All I want is you, by my side, by my side All I want is you, by my side, by my side All I want is you It’s you Sinking slow Feeling snow Where will my angel go Should I close my eyes Or shut my door The only thing I know All I want is you, by my side, by my side All I want is you, by my side, by my side All I want is you Here

Ancien Combattant Tu m’as sortie sur un brancard Du champ d’bataille de ma mémoire De l’uniforme qui m’emprisonne Tu m’as couchée sous tes lilas Et sous les fleurs de mon combat Je n’ai plus peur je m’abandonne A l’instant Comme un ancien combattant Car je sais qu’chaque baiser Pourrait être le dernier Ni le passé ni l’avenir M’importent autant que le présent Que je bafouille bien trop souvent J’passe à côté parfois j’oublie Qu’elle est bien trop courte la vie Alors ton parfum dans le vent Me ramène à l’instant Comme un ancien combattant Car je sais qu’chaque baiser Est une part d’éternité J’retournerai pas dans cet enfer J’préfère me jeter à la mer J’déserte même si on m’encloisonne Là-bas sous les buissons de mûres J’ai retiré toutes mes armures Au loin j’entends les cloches qui sonnent Elles me rappellent à l’instant Comme un ancien combattant Car je sais, qu’chaque baiser Pourrait être le dernier Elles me rappellent à l’instant Comme un ancien combattant Chaque baiser j’te le fais Comme si c’était le premier

Into the sun You shine on me like a crazy diamond Shine on me like an angel, a demon With you I will jump off the highest mountain Into the sun I cry for you like the wind on the ocean Cry for you I’m so filled with emotion With you I will jump through eternal silence Come, take my heart, take my hand We’ll fly above the planes Take my heart, Let’s fall again You shine on me like a crazy diamond Shine on me like an angel, a demon With you I will dive through the air, be a falcon Come, take my heart, take my hand We’ll fly above the flames Take my heart, Let’s fall again Into the sun Into the sun Take my heart, take my hand We’ll fly above the flames Take my heart, Let’s fall again

Wash When you look back, back in time And you don’t know why you still sigh Just let the ocean When you don’t know what to say Don’t know what lies behind that gaze Just let the ocean Just let the ocean, wash it all Away When you forget how to smile When you’ve gone that many miles Just let the sunshine On all those years that flew by The memories you put aside Just let the sunshine Just let the sunshine, wash it all Away When you’re afraid ‘cuz you grew old When inside you feel small Just let your love And when the world around is warm But in your heart it is cold Just let your love Just let your love, wash it all Away

Revolver Je vais me laisser couler Je vais me laisser glisser Je vais toucher le fond Prendre de l’élan Au grand bleu me donner Au néant me jeter À son silence À son calme blanc J’vais plonger, garder les yeux ouverts J’vais descendre, suivre tes lampadaires M’accrocher à l’ancre aux mille lumières Me laisser sombrer comme une pierre Noyer le cafard dans ma chair Je vais rendre mes larmes À la mer Je vais rendre mes larmes À la mer Quand je suis les courbes de la vie Quand je ne sais plus où j’en suis Quand je tourne le globe à l’envers Que j’me retrouve encore à terre Laisse-moi laisse-moi laisse-moi À la mer À la mer Je vais rendre mes larmes À la mer À la mer Je vais rendre mes larmes À la mer J’vais donner toutes mes larmes À la mer J’en veux plus de ces larmes J’en veux plus Je vais rendre les armes Je vais me laisser couler Je vais me laisser glisser Je vais toucher le fond Prendre de l’élan

Untie my hair Untie my hair, unlace my corset Resuscitate me with your lips, bring me back to lightness Give me a reason to live Through these rainy days A reason to stay I wanna fall in love again Break the levee that’s been stopping my heart from beating Cast-off the mooring that’s been holding me ashore Give me a reason to live Another sunny day I wanna fall in love again over again I’m tired Of breathing I’m tired Of giving Of hoping Of falling Of longing For you So tired Of waiting Of hurting Of aching Of failing Of burning Of drowning My heart For love Unbind my eyes, undo the ribbons of my dress I’m choking inside I need room to take a breath Give me a reason to live Through these rainy days A reason to stay I wanna fall in love again Give me a reason to live Another sunny day I wanna fall in love again, again, again Over and over and over and over and over again

Star-filled sky With you I’d jump over a fire Walk barefoot on broken glass With you I’d do anything Lay all night naked in the grass And watch the star- Filled sky In your eyes Watch the stars So bright You make me high I’d swim across the Hudson River Count the petals of a bourbon rose With you I’d dance into the morning Spin around until I fall Into the star- Filled sky In your eyes Into the stars So bright Take me higher I stepped with you into the summer Into a meadow of green I fell asleep out in the open Over my eyes your gaze Is like the star- Filled sky Above Like the stars So bright You make me high Like the star- Filled sky Above Like the stars So bright You take me higher Like the star-filled sky above

Beads of morning dew Walking in high heels Eating just one meal Wanting to be pretty like the girls in magazines She’s the girl with the bellyache The girl with the heartache Caught up in her head In a spider’s web In a spiral dream Frozen by the rain It’s driving her insane Wake up sleeping beauty Keep the beads of morning dew From falling from your eyes You can fly like a butterfly Swim like a white swan Mirror on the wall can you show her all She wishes for She’s the girl with the cherry dress The girl with her sadness Wake up sleeping beauty Keep the beads of morning dew From falling from your eyes Keep the beads, of rain, of morning dew Keep the beads, of reds, of gray and blue Keep the beads, of rain, of morning dew Keep the beads, of reds, of gray and blue From falling from your eyes

On my own Up I ride, down I go Above the waves, then below My heart it hurts Once more I slid again, off the board When will I learn, to stay afloat To swim back to the shore On my own On my own, oh on my own Where does it end, or does it begin The story’s lost within If I could leave, I would I just don’t know to what page ‘Cuz my heart won’t stop, beating for you But if I stop my heart, then I can go On my own On my own When it stops I’ll go Leave this raging sea Feel the ground, right under my feet I’ll walk out, through the autumn fields I’ll make snow angels in the leaves Oh when I’ll go, I won’t, turn around ‘Cuz if I do, I’ll run back to you Swallows left, I see my breath I’m skidding on your ice If I could leave, I would Skip right to the end ‘Cuz my heart won’t stop, beating for you But if I stop my heart, then I can go On my own On my own When it stops, I’ll go I’ll go… I’ll go… I’ll go. I’m gone

Comme un fleuve J’sens le feu du printemps Le réveil du jasmin dans mes veines Tu l’sais pas dans le creux de mes reins Des couleurs tu sèmes La douceur qui m’effleure comme un fleuve elle me saigne Dans tes yeux, j’veux courir, couler Je les aime Laisse-moi toucher, le bleu de ton infini Laisse-moi partir, dans le ciel de ta nuit J’sens la sève monter en moi, la marée éclore Le soleil se lever dedans Tout brûle dans mon corps Dans ton silence j’entends mon coeur Battre plus fort Emmène-moi dessus, dessous encore Laisse-moi toucher, le bleu de ton infini Laisse-moi partir, dans les vagues de ta nuit Laisse-moi toucher, le bleu de ton infini Laisse-moi partir, dans le ciel de ta nuit Laisse-moi toucher, le bleu de ton infini Laisse-moi te suivre, au bout de ta nuit J’sens le feu du printemps Le réveil du jasmin dans mes veines

Walk the wire I’m getting off, my bed of nails I’m climbing up, onto the tightrope I’m gonna walk the wire of my life I’m gonna fly on a cloud swing into the sky I’m gonna somersault out of my act I’m gonna breathe your fire I’m getting out, with the tigers I’ll throw knives, I’ll swallow swords I’m gonna walk the wire of my life I’m gonna fly on a cloud swing into the sky I’m gonna somersault out of my act I’m gonna breathe your fire Tonight I’m your ring mistress. I’m your illusion. Orchestrate the impossible. Make your dreams come to life Close your eyes. Look inside. There are no boundaries between imagination and reality. Be the lion, the elephant, the snow leopard, the unicorn. Be the hobo, the freak, the acrobat, the contortionist. Be the trapeze, the human cannonball, the big top, the ropes. Be the lights, the laughter, the children wondering at Mister Pennygaff. Get out of your mind Become the circus Come into my mind Become the circus I’ll get on stilts, I’ll touch the stars I’ll pull out doves, from my scarf I’m gonna walk the wire of my life I’m gonna fly on a cloud swing into the sky I’m gonna somersault out of my act I’m gonna breathe your fire

about

Originating from the Boston underground rock scene, Swiss native Christine Zufferey is releasing a new opus "Like sunshine after rain" in her own folk alternative rock style, featuring songs in both English and French. On this album, Zufferey twists the traditional acoustic female singer / songwriter genre by combining the unique tones of her altered twelve string guitar as well as electric, with a few eclectic guest musicians to highlight her tonal dexterity. Her full-length album is dedicated to the seasons and the emotions tied to the ebb and the flow of change. The acoustic, sober and raw quality of her solo performances is kept, while depths and colors are added in the subtle arrangements, moving it from electric to floaty, from melancholic to warm to eerie. Antoine Delecroix recorded the album and collaborated on the arrangements. Catherine Capozzi (Axemunkee) added her e-bow orchestra and unearthly guitar sounds; Jean-Pilippe Audin contributed his full-bodied cello. The CD cover and each song are illustrated by the talented artist Bahadir Isler, from Istanbul. In addition to MARY ZOO, Christine is part of the Trance/House/Dance duo Heliophase with recent releases on Joyride Music, and of the multi media series "Bring Us Your Women" (Boston, USA).
