Track Name: The poison in your eyes
I’ve waited too long, I can’t act deaf-and-dumb
A man is a man even if he’s treated like a bum
I’m just a poor guy, I know I don’t have many means but
Since we've been living under the same roof, I’ve never done bad things

I work to death seven days a week
I carry breeze blocks on the site, well that makes me sick
I asked for a pay rise ‘cause I have done overtime
But the boss said times are bad and I won’t get paid a dime


Yet I can see hatred, poison in your eyes
And I can see dislike, don't tell me no lies
Yeah I can see the feelings that you wanna hide
And the more you keep it inside baby Well the more It comes outside


I do everything a man must do to prove his worth
Is there anything here I wouldn’t be accused of?
You want nice clothes, diamonds and rubys
But let me tell you baby, life ain’t a bed of roses

I wasn’t born yesterday, I know how you feel
I’m not in a good situation, I’m becoming a bad deal
I won’t change the world baby but I know what’s good for me
And it’s livin’ in this old world with a little dignity

I just wanna live in this world with my dignity

You know all year long, I’m drowned in troubled waters
'Cause you give me hell so I don't wanna go further
I also have rough times, now I can’t stand it anymore
Right at the back of my mind, there’s another way I’m praying for.


Yet I can see hatred, poison in your eyes
And I can see dislike, don't tell me no lies
Yeah I can see the feelings that you wanna hide
And the more you keep it inside baby, well the more it comes outside
And the more you hit me hard now baby, the more I die
Said the more you hit me hard now baby, well the more I die
Track Name: Something a little bit new
You have lots of ideas
You know vocabulary
You have theories, political biases
Explaining your opinions, drawing conclusions

You have such a full life
With a sweet housewife
And what about philosophy?
Yeah you know the story... Teach me, teach me

I got it but otherwise
Do you have some values?
I mean under this disguise
Do you have some virtues?

You have silicone
Big shoots of hormone
You do body building, liposuction
And you have collagen, skin tanned without sun

A botox forehead
So it looks half-dead
Now you’re talkin’ about the look
Your private life is an open book, flaunted on facebook.

I got it but otherwise
Do you have some values?
I mean under this disguise
Do you have some virtues? I don't think so...

'Cause I just wanna know you
Something a little bit new
Well I just wanna see you
Through all which is déjà-vu (Bis)

You have Eden Park
Hugo Boss from Hallmark
You might be a star in your big racing car
You totally show off, it’s so easy to scoff,

And for a pathetic doll
You start a street brawl
Without an ounce of decency
Lucky at all but unlucky, always busy busy.

I got it but otherwise
Do you have some values?
I mean under this disguise
Do you have some virtues?

You have magazines, skin-tight blue-jeans
You go window-shopping,
You might be a queen, dreamin’ up the ideal man
He’ll be your number one fan

Just a bit more than your dog
He’d like to go for a jog and he would unclog the bog
And when at night you say « heel! »
He’d wag his tail for real !

I got it but otherwise
Do you have some values?
I mean under this disguise
Do you have some virtues? I don't think so..

‘Cause I just wanna know you
Something a little bit new
I just wanna see you
Through all wich is déjà-vu
Yeah I just wanna know you
Something a little bit new
I just wanna see you
Through all wich is déjà-vu
I just wanna know you!
Track Name: Judge and Condemn
Oh my enemy, my fellow
We share a weakness
A jail for a soul and a cage for a sparrow
A curse for justice

Oh my enemy, my fellow
We know a refuge
Nestled in the arms of a sorrow
Against the nature of things, we accuse

Cruel is the fate, cold is the rain,
Dust covers our feet, we accuse again.

Time’s always at our heels but never tired
But we hide the truth babe for a bitter break
Strugglin’ with our own beliefs and doubts
While voices are calling from our deepest ache


The ache of the end
The end we can’t relieve
Things we don’t understand
The aim we can’t achieve
So we continue to blame
Whereas God forgives
We always judge and condemn
Without a reprieve.


Oh my enemy, my fellow
We use the same ploy
Refusing to reap what we sow
For a sense of solace without joy

My enemy, my fellow
Shall we go along with the gist?
And never know ourselves in the raw
The mind where we touch the mist.

A will to disarm, A way to exist
It works like a charm to lower the fist

Time will always push us forward
As a friendly call to say what’s done is done
From a distance, memories may seem stalwart
But everything will be swept away by the run


The run to the end
The end’s an echo
So that we understand
There’s neither ally nor foe
There’s a flame
A long time ago
No need to judge and condemn
I just want you to know
That we share a flame
A long time ago
No need to judge and condemn
What we have to know
Is that we share a flame
A long time ago
We just have to play the game
We gotta let it grow !
We gotta let it grow !
We gotta let it grow !
We gotta let it grow !
Track Name: Africa
It’s a song about a land from old times
A far away plain dried by the clime
I see the sun risin’ up in the bush's colors
Tree stumps on the low side, and tasty flavors

I feel the wind's mixing with the ashes
And there, zebras run along the marshes
Well, blow my shadow, would you rock me mama
Beause I've got to go, I’ve got to go

AFRICA... I will come back to you again.
AFRICA... I wanna get you out of pain, get you out of pain.

Now I’m drivin’ slowly on a dusty trail
I see the old man's crowned when the young hears his tales
Walking barefoot for three miles, a woman carries a bowl
She looks at me a bit shy with a grin under a shawl

I see flames whirl in the night
And then, twigs burn on the campsite
You can hold me in your arms, so I can keep faith
I feel love baby, when I see your face

AFRICA... I will come back to you again.
AFRICA... I wanna get you out of pain, get you out of pain.

You know I just have one shame
And it’s still playing the same old phoney game
While you're showing me the way to hope and smile within misery
I’m just wondering, do we deserve a glow of sympathy?

AFRICA... I will come back to you again.
AFRICA... I wanna get you out of pain.
AFRICA... I will come back to you again.
AFRICA... I wanna get you out of pain, get you out of pain.
Track Name: Yours
You have so many forms of adress
But only one Is the good one
Yours
So many words to say yes
But only one Is the good one
Yours
So many women to cherish
But only one Is the good one
Yours
So many lives you should wish
But only one Is the good one
Yours

So many runs for a stream
But they all lead To the ocean
Blue
So many starts for a dream
But they all need An engine
It’s you

'Cause you have so many ways to be yourself
So many ways to be yourself
So many ways to be yourself
But only one is the good one and it's yours!

You have so many purposes I guess
But only one Is the good one
Yours
So many gods to be blessed
But only one Is the good one
Yours
So many mountains to climb
But only one Is the good one
Yours
So many truths for a mind
But only one Is the good one
Yours

So many chances in a throw
So why do you think this one
Ain't for you?
So many guides to follow
But the good one must be found
In you, babe!

'Cause you have so many ways to be yourself
So many ways to be yourself
So many ways to be yourself
But only one is the good one and it's yours!
Track Name: Give it all
The day has come
You find a way to hold on
Hard stone, roll alone
Your heavy head drags on the ground

Stars may shine above baby
Your mind is always blue
I’m sure that you can dig a hole
But tell me where it leads you

And I know sometimes the road’s crumbling
Well it’s the same for everyone
Even if some old cruel ghosts are laughing
It should never stop you from givin' love

So give it all now baby
You gotta give it all now
A whisper in your ear
Just give it all now baby
You gotta give it all now
‘Cause it weighs on you for years

Don’t close your eyes
Turning back when someone calls
You know I’ve seen men pray to see your smile
You gotta listen to your soul

‘Cause there’s nothing to lose
And so much to give
Some are trying to prove it
When others find a way to believe, there’s one way babe!

And I know sometimes the road may be long
Well it's the same for everyone
Even if some old trains are whistlin' a sad song
It should never stop you from givin' love

So give it all now baby
You gotta give it all now
A whisper in your ear
Just give it all now baby
You gotta give it all now
‘Cause It weighs on you for years
Yeah give it all now baby
You gotta give it all now
If you need to shed a tear
To give it all now baby
You gotta give it all now
And live with no fears
Track Name: A family
I got a family
The Lord is with me
He gave me a family
Who cares about me
Said I have a family
Lord, it's good to be
With the love of my family
So man, share in family
Girl, take care of your family

Well, I used to get away,
To find my own way
I’ve wandered along streets
Deceived by the cheats
Their fights for thrones
The big clock and the hourly fees
Hurt me to my bones
They had no mercy for my pleas

So when I found myself lost and lonely
I've prayed the good lord to send me somebody
Then who came to me? It was my mother, my father, my sister, my brother

A family
The Lord is with me
He gave me a family
Who cares about me
Said I have a family
Lord, it's good to be
With the love of my family
So man, share in family
Girl, take care of your family

From my low rent to a bedouin tent
I’ve fled my everyday
Always attracted by a new scent
In Mali or in Mandalay
But in every sip of wine
A taste I can’t abide
And in every sense of mine
A knot was on the inside

So if you're lost and you’re a stranger
And you do a prayer to never be lonely
I just wanna give you what I have and after
We may be brothers, sisters, from the same

Family
Lord, it's good for me
To build a new family
I care about you, you care about me
And we're a true family
Lord, it’s good to be
From the mankind family
So man, share in family
Girl, take care of your family.
Track Name: Mr Groovy
If you wanna keep movin’
You have to tap your feet now
If you wanna keep swingin’
You have to put the sound loud
If you want this world to change
Well you should change your mind first
And if you can't live with others
You have to be brave and prepare for the worst babe

If you wanna keep movin’
You have to snip your fingers now
If you wanna keep smilin’
You have to let your hair down!
If you want things to work according to your scheme
Remember all ain’t modeled on your pattern
If you want a lover for your self-esteem
True love is a thing you still have to learn.
You still have to learn it babe!


But if you want a good time
If you wanna take it easy
If you are past your prime
And you feel no sympathy


Just call me, call me, call me !


Call me Mr Groovy !
Early in the morning
Mr Groovy !
When it’s late in the evening
Yeah Mr Groovy !
From the dusk to the dawn
I'm your Mr Groovy !
Just call your Mr Groovy now !


If you wanna keep growin’
You have to trust in you now!
If you wanna keep beamin’
You have to give a hug now!
If you want all the people to know your name
Then you might be a stranger to yourself
And if you don’t believe you can play the game
Then you should remember time will tell.
Time will tell babe!


But if you want a real time
If you wanna make it right
If you are past your prime
And no one wants to hold you tight


Just call me, call me, call me !


Call me Mr Groovy !
Early in the morning
Mr Groovy !
When it’s late in the evening
Yeah Mr Groovy !
From the dusk to the dawn
I'm your Mr Groovy !
Just call your Mr Groovy now !
Track Name: Make a wager
I make a wager, I make a wager on life
‘Cause I’m free, free to build a future babe
So I make a wager, I make a wager on life
And I’m welcome to a world without strife

I'm free, a bird on my shoulder
Take me to the top, a river runs wild in me
I got Love, it's givin' me power,
My soul is a rock, I have the will to live.

I can see clearly from all sides, I look like the cat that's got the cream
As I leave the mistakes to the past
I can do whatever I want, I can realize my dreams
from the first to the last

You told me (that) I should pick up the phone
Now I'm just thinking I should find my own tone

So I make a wager, I make a wager on life
‘Cause I’m free, free to build a future babe
So I make a wager, I make a wager on life
And I’m welcome to a world without strife

You’re free, with or without conditions
You gotta feel it, a fire runs in your veins
It gives you love, it roars like a lion
Takin' you high, it's like a hurricane !

You can see clearly from all sides, you look like the cat that's got the cream
As you leave the mistakes to the past
You can do whatever you want babe, you can realize your dreams
from the first to the last

They told you (that) you should not do it alone, no!
Well I just think that you have found your own tone!

So let’s make a wager, let’s make a wager on life
‘Cause we’re free, free to build a future
So let’s make a wager, let’s make a wager on life
Yeah we can do it, do it together !

We gotta make a wager, yeah make a wager on life
‘Cause we’re free, free to build a future
I said let’s make a wager, let’s make a wager on life
And we’ll be welcome to a world without strife
We gotta make a wager, let's make a wager on life
‘cause we’re free, free to build a future
I said let’s make a wager, let’s make a wager on life !
Yeah yeah Babe !
Track Name: So real
Night is falling
The candle licks your skin
What a soft blessing
Your lips put me in a spin

I’m just lying in the lightness
The heat rises in a soft embrace
All the beauty, all the grace
In your shining curls and lace

Hold me strong and forget the lost causes
Crazy man thinks he can order the land
I’m a man but I don’t want those pledges
Just the touch, the sweet touch of your delicate hand


‘Cause it makes me feel so real
Everything’s hot and it drives me insane
And it brings to my senses a seductive appeal
And I want you to do it
I want you to do it
I want you to do it again.


From the couch to the bed
We float high and light
No words need to be said
As our spirits unite

Lie down and look at me fondly
And draw me in your palm
Inside of you, where you want me to be
Carried away by a delicious charm

Hold me strong and never let me go
Crazyness ain’t so far away from me
For I know the burden of tomorrow
And the grief that makes you want to flee

So please make me feel so real
Make my thing hot and drive me insane
‘Cause it brings to my senses this seductive appeal
And I want you to do it I
want you to do it
I want you to do it again.

Oh baby make me feel so real
Make my thing hot and drive me insane
‘Cause it brings to my senses this seductive appeal
And I want you to do it
I want you to do it
I want you to do it again

When you get closer like this
Divin’ your eyes into mine
I get a shiver that twists
And runs down my spine.
When you get closer like this
Divin’ your eyes into mine
I get a shiver that twists
And runs down my spine.
Track Name: Each time I was wrong
The old branch is hard
And clouds drop the rain
Gently on the bare bark
By watering the plain

The cold winter ends
And leaves appear
The sea rolls on the sands
As I love you my dear

Love is a wild intimacy
Just like the wind when it sings in a tree
But If you leave my body
I will taste my own misery, I’ll be on my knees, well


'Cause I’ve been waiting for you for so long
I was waiting for you each time I was wrong
I was waiting for you, for you babe, for you.


Once my nights were blind
And the moon was missing
Memories far behind
It was one of those things

But my sun turns over
Now I’m back in its glimmers
I feel that dazzling fire babe
All around my shoulders

My feelings in poetry
Come in a sweet melody
But If you give up my mind
There’s no bliss I can find, I won’t find my bliss, no!


Well I’ve been waiting for you for so long
I was waiting for you each time I was wrong
I was waiting for you, for you babe, for you.
I was waiting for you.
Track Name: Lullaby for isaac
I'm still here
Walkin' in shining spaces
Into the clear

And 'till the end
Just one life to live
With our souls to blend

‘Cause you know my song
You know me better than I do
And I should be strong
To put my thoughts out of blue
So what’s right or wrong?
Man’s fears may fade out
In the eyes of his son.

Without bravery
The man who forgets the child he was
Betrays his memory

Remember honey
You're the best part of my world
You're the one I see

'Cause you know my song
You know me better than I do
And I should be strong
To put my thoughts out of blue
So what’s right or wrong?
Man’s fears may fade out
In the smile of his son.

Let your hand on me
Your spirit shines all around
Your cries, my army
Make my rage fall to the ground
For It's not only pretending
That I'll be yours 'till the end.


Well you know my song
You know me better than I do
And I should be strong
To put my thoughts out of blue
So that will never be wrong
My fears may fade out
In your eyes
In your laughes
In your pretty smiles
My son.
