PIECE OF ME Sure, I'll do my best I'll folow the advice, do as you wish So don't panic 'cause you are free You don't want to act Just watch and see It's not a fairy tale for me Sure, I'm not the last sweet prince that you will see And all I can give to you Is around in the air Go ahead Shoot me! I was in front of you But behind him But don't panic 'cause You are free Don't wanna loose myself 'Cause of that daydream Where is the fairy tale? Tell me! Sure, I'm not the last sweet prince that you will meet And what I can offer you Flyes in my head You don't want to be No you don't want to be a piece of me There's no sweet symphony No more sweet melodies in my mind You don't to be No, you don't want to be mine Let's try again honey Don't use a machine gun This time just fucking tell me! That you're panicking But you are free It's kind of ennoying when it is too easy Let's live the fairy tail Trust me Wish I am the last sweet prince you will see And all I can give to you Flies in my head... You don't want to be No you don't want to be a piece of me There's no sweet symphony No more sweet melodies in my mind You don't to be No, you don't want to be mine Well... Are you happy? The last frame fades to black Nothing around, Nothing Except a big scar on my heart Except a big scar on Come over to me! I have already lost myself 'cause of that dream... Our fairy tail is ending sadly Can I take back my bloody horse... Quicky? Who wrote the end? Tell me! 'Cause it's unfair You don't want to be No you don't want to be a piece of me There's no sweet symphony No more sweet melodies in my mind You don't to be No, you don't want to be mine

Considering the script, I've changed my plans I choose to run away from my own lines All my surrounding ghosts should stay, it's fine Let's discuss the new try And take our time Grazing the page, The ink as knife Rewrites my life Pushing away what matters for tonight, Dreaming myself as a knight Fighting, beeing brave and saving many lifes Beeing good without even trying Why can't I be this hero sleeping in my mind? 'Cause it's too late to break the curse, Of course... Pages and pages until daylight The ghosts whispered ideas to me all night Learning from my mistakes I'm doing fine Becoming someone wise On our unreal side Stroking the page, The ink as a friend, Writting the change Pushing away what matters, all the signs Considering myself as a crime Burn down the codes, run away with the bride Is it too late to decide? I'm thinking like a fool but I'm never acting like one 'Cause it's too late to break the curse, Of course, 'Cause it's too late to make it yours, Of course...

It is clear that something has grown I feel awkward everyday I know it's not a good sign 'Cause I'm thinking about it The monster is still in my mind Your smile can get it awake It is just another fight But I'm afraid that you could win... I would like you to disappear But I kind of like you don't It is just another round And I'm feeling like a fraud The monster is still in my mind Your eyes can get it awake Taking myself to a new fight I know you own the battlefield It is just another You are just another Temptation 'cause I'm feeling down it is just another You are just another one It is clear that something has grown, But you know I won't call for help I know it's not a good sign And I should run the other way Your picture is still on my side Like a shadow staring at me Walking towards you in the dark If I find you, maybe I'll stay... It is just another, You are just another, Temptation coz I feel down, It is just another, You are just another one...

Fearing what's coming as I can see Mistakes have been made And now we are facing the worst chemistry Buildings to high and the sky's missing Sinking among the crowd Draged down by their calls I just feel like running Trapped in the web, tied to the whole thing Thinking about the time I wasted beeing productive Do we fit in? I'm still wondering Laying on the grass, beeing sure of nothing Isnt it the proper thrill? It is just a bloody wall We are talking to I have to preserve the essential What is true Can't U see we have it all? And we are not fools Let's sail away from this harboug We pushed aside the certainties Staring at a brand new horizon Let's behave like stupid kids It's like missing a day at school 'Cause we feel like playing Forgetting what is around, We deserve so Even if everything goes mad We found a role Belonging to our own side While the world falls We have enough time to loose some And I don't want to run a race, but the one I run with you Have enough smiles to give some away And the rest doesn't matter as long as you are smilling too

Standing away from the noise I feel would love some rest A step aside from this mess Locked in my room rocked by your voice

about

I am Stramgram Bordeaux, France

Pop folk anglo-saxonne saupoudrée d'électro, conjuguant l'urgente folie d'artistes tel que Born Ruffians/Beck/Eels, avec les élégantes parenthèses des dandys Bowie ou Yorke. La part belle est, comme aux origines folk, faite à la voix et aux textes. Joyeuse et mélancolique, débraillée et exigeante, une musique à l'image des paradoxes qui nous habitent. ... more
