about

Recorded at Studio des Quatre Chemins, Pantin, Paris 23 January 2015 after a couple of weeks of spontaneously meeting musicians at venues like the gorgeous Coolin and Paris Open Mics, in tiny bars busking afterwards, annoying the barmen who wanted to go home but pleasing tired sozzled customers, and on street corners in the dark hours of dawn while roaming the streets, stopping to make music wherever we were, shouting philosophies and singing to whomever would listen...

Track Name: Blue Butterfly
I love my blue butterfly
He walks the streets with me at night
He speaks about the revolution
Blue eyes brightly determined

We find music in small corners
Tattooed arms and graffitied words
We stamp the pavement with umbrellas
Gathering men to sing our chorus

(Ly di dy di dy dy)

I stop under street lights to kiss him
But there's so much he needs to tell me
The city that has just been broken
Opens wounds that must be spoken

So we greet the early morning people
Who work to keep the streets clean
We shout that there is always love
A protest song above the traffic

Ly di dy di dy dy)

The key turns the door is open
The cold wind blows in through the curtain
Through the shutters hints of the sun
Another day just begun

But we the overtired soldiers
Curl up softly into each other
This war is softened with a whisper
With gentle song it falls asleep

(Ly di dy di dy dy)
Track Name: Falling
I can hear the words falling from my mouth
Falling falling for you
I can see the words falling from my mouth
Falling falling for you

If I fall asleep tonight
outside your door
Will you take me inside?

If I call seven times tonight
will you answer
every time?

Painted questions
Coloured stones
Look what I found
A love full grown

Sleep inside my caravan
Let's watch skies
go round again

I can hear the words falling from my mouth
Falling falling for you
I can see the words falling from my mouth
Falling falling for you
