Track Name: Nothin'
Nothin

It’s been a long time my friend so I’ve come back again
to claim which once was mine, you better step aside
The time is right my call is this,
got my life back, I’m through with this
Ain’t no player gonna hate on me
‘cause I’ve been set free

And I know, yes I’ve been known to
And I chose, yes I’ve been chosen to
So I can’t, no I won’t, be held back, no I won’t
Yes, I will rise from the fall

Nothin’s gonna stop me now, ain’t no way, ain’t no how
Nothin’s gonna stop me now and I said
Eh oh eh oh oh, Eh oh eh oh oh
Nothin’s gonna stop me now, ain’t no way, ain’t no how
Nothin’s gonna stop me now and I said
Eh oh eh oh oh, Eh oh eh oh oh

I don’t believe in revenge, only justice
Treat people right, don’t fight,
you throw a punch you miss
‘Cause life ain’t about power,
it’s about who you are.

I decided a long time ago
to let go of control and roll with the flow
So I can’t, no I won’t, be held back, no I won’t
Yes, I will rise from the fall

Chorus

I’ve been a victim, that’s why I’m so insecure
I’ve said I’m sorry to you time and time before
so no more, no more, no more
No more, no more, no more, no more

Chorus
Track Name: Natural
Natural

Heart stop pounding, it’s just another day in another café
Another coffee with another man
It ain’t nothing new but
oh darling, my baby, you

Chorus
You make me shiver, crumble in your hands
Like gold dust to a minor well you seem to understand
All my energies and my ways to be
Darling lovin’ you, is coming so naturally

Naturally, Naturally
Yeah, just listen to me

‘Cause walkin’ down the street gets easier each day
with all these brave women and men comin’ my way
Darlin’ I know I could ask you to stay, here with me
but lovin’ you it’s coming so naturally

Chorus

A new time to continue and a new time to go on
I have been away for oh so long
Now I’m coming back to you in all this glory
and in this morning dew
You and I shall live in paradise and everything will be so nice and

Natural, Natural, Natural to me
Yeah, it’ll be so natural

I may see you tomorrow, maybe in the rain
Darlin’ I know that this will happen over and again
and again and again and again
But I can’t win this game
cause in my mind I’m going insane
Your love is like sugar to me baby
Ain’t it obvious that lovin’ you
it’s coming so naturally

Chorus
Track Name: Hold on
Hold On

I’m keeping my dreams in front of me
but not so much that I can’t see yes
I’m keeping my dreams in front of me
but not so much that I can’t see oh

Chorus
Hold on, Never let go
I hold on, I’ll never know
Hold on, Never let go
I hold on, I’ll never know

I got say it hasn’t been easy
pressing on the way that I do
But faith has kept me on the right track
and best of all I get to do it with you

Chorus

And I want it so bad that I can taste it
And I want it so bad that it’s running through my veins
And I want it like a baby who wants it’s milk
I want it like a silkworm that wants it’s silk
It’s my force to live, the reason why I breathe
It’s my everything I want and my everything I need
So I...

Chorus
Track Name: Le Temps
Le Temps

Je suis fatiguée, à ramaser
A la petite cuillère - - ère
Je suis épuisée
Cette fois c’est la der des der
Comment me sortir de cette affaire
Comment me sortir de cet enfer
Est-ce qu’on est arrivé?
Je suis si fatiquée
Je sais pas quand ça sera seulement moi je compte sur toi
Car toi tu sais mieux que moi que

Refrain
Le temps est entre tes mains
Le temps est entre tes mains
Aujourd’hui je le voudrais bien
Réussir à partir pour voir le monde
Juste ma guitare et mon sac-a-dos
Le temps est entre tes mains
Oui, le temps est entre tes mains

Le pourquoi du comment
On en fini jamais
Mais tout les petits détails
Toi tu les connais
La liberté c’est vrai je la voulais
Mais la suite ça restera secret
Est-ce qu’on est arrivé?
Je suis si fatiquée
Je sais pas quand ça sera seulement moi je compte sur toi
Car toi tu sais mieux que moi que

Refrain

Oh oh oh oh! Oh oh oh oh! Oh oh oh oh! Oh oh oh oh!

Je sais pas quand ça sera seulement moi je compte sur toi
Car toi tu sais mieux que moi que

Refrain
Track Name: In Your Arms
Where do I go from here?
Seems as I've walked a miliion miles.
Where do I go from here?
How do I get back my smile?
Where do I go from here?
Can't I just forget the past?
Cause I'm a long way from home
At some point I'll have to rest

Chorus
In your arms, see joy through the tears
In your arms, there's no more fear
In your arms, your arms
I know where to to go from here

How did it get so hard to fight with hope and kindness?
Why do I try so hard to be loved in this crisis?
Can we break down these walls so that you'll feel the difference?
Cause I'm a long way from home
At some point I'll have to rest

Chorus

You say don't worry for tomorrow
That day will worry on it's own
You say, trust in me, just believe
I need the truth to set me free

Chorus

In your arms, I feel the love
In your arms, rain down from above
In your arms, your arms
I know where to go from here
You show me where to go from here
Track Name: J'ai Grossi
J’ai Grossi (I got fat)

C'était à la maison quand j'ai eu ce frisson
Je ne me sentais pas bien et puis j'avais l'impression
d'avoir grossi, grossi
des bras, des fesses et des cuisses aussi
Et à ce moment précis, je me suis dit
bientôt je ne verrais plus mes chevilles
Mon corps est envahi, mes pantalons m'ont trahis
Je voudrais prendre du répit, alors c'est parti...

Je monte sur la balance pour me torturer
un peu sado-maso mais il faut la chiffrer
2 kilos et 200 grammes
Oh my God, c'est un vrai drame
Que vais-je faire avec ce gros souci?
Messieurs, dames je vous en supplie
aimez – moi pour qui je suis
J'ai grossi

J'ai grossi babadapba

Quel horreur! Je suis la plus grosse de Paris
Je vois les pubs dans le métro je culpabilise
Je peux oublier ma carrière sur la scène
Pour être la plus belles des Parisiennes, Franco-Américaine

J'ai grossi babadapba

Je jure d'arrêter de manger, enfin j'essaie d'arrêter
Mais déjà j'ai trop la dalle et ça commence à m'angoisser
Je ne voudrais pas faire un régime raté
Mais je suis fatiguée et complètement affamé.
Je m'arrache les cheveux, je trouve ce régime monstrueux
Je reste là silencieuse...

C'est trop douloureux de se priver de ce qu'on aime
J'aimerais maigrir mais franchement j'ai trop la flemme
C'est un terrible dilèmme et puis j'ai pas vraiment de stratagème
C'est pourquoi je vous chante ce requième

J'ai grossi babadapba

Finalement, il y'en a des chanteuses avec des belles rondeurs
Et moi qui suis là avec toutes mes pudeurs
Je suis une globe trotteur eh non j'ai pas peur de grossir
Il faut sourire, il faut partir pour reconstruire
Il faut partir pour construire

J'ai grossi babadapba
Track Name: Storm of You
Storm of You

The rain is tapping on my window
I close my eyes, the moments go slow
You my love rest in my dreams
listen to the thunder puts me to sleep

Chorus
And a storm of you is all I need
To get me through
Let your skies pour down on me
A storm of you

Is ecstasy

Tick, tock, time goes by
I let your vision color my mind
An hour for this and ten bucks for that
Feels like I’m losing getting nothing back

Chorus

Makes my days feel sunny
I can’t live without you hunny

Pour it down with a storm of you
Makes all my sunny days feel blue
And in the robin sky
I can see you, walkin’ by me, winking your sweet eye

In ecstasy

This life is so good to me
With misadventures and all
You are my sunshine baby but I like the fall
Day to do I go my way, and you know
You can come out to play
Track Name: Unpredictable
Unpredictable

The way you came and touched my heart
I knew it was a start to something beautiful
Something out of my control
And once I let that tiny spark
Light up what once was in the dark
I began to feel whole
I let go of my control

Chorus
Your plans are
Unpredictable
yet so full of love
Unpredictable
and that’s why I love you

And I can’t believe you changed what I’d become
You turned me around
Yeah you turned me around
And evey day’s a gift to me
It’s a chance to celebrate life and to be happy
I’ll share my harmony

Chorus

You made so many promises
It’s hard to imagine I guess
What you’d be getting out of this, it’s either hit or miss
But thanks to your precision
I can make any decision
And now I’m feeling so strong
With you I can’t go wrong

Chorus
Track Name: La Flamme
La Flamme
(The Flame)

La flamme en moi s’est éteinte
La machine d’amour est en panne
C’est comme si j’ai perdu mon âme
Oh la flamme suis-je femme ?

Nos corps s’en mêlent
Aux couleurs des arcs-en-ciel
Est-il réel ?
Cet amour qui m’ensorcelle

La flamme..

La flamme en moi se termine
Mon cœur il cri famine
J’aimerais croquer la vie avec ma triste mine
Oh la flamme, suis-je digne ?

Une allumette, une étincelle
Pour faire rougaïr le feu intérieur
Rallumer les cendres trop inférieures
A la Flamme

La flamme...

Partons pour une île desserte
Où l’amour c’est la seule chose qui sert
Partons pour le désert assoiffé
Pour que nos corps puissent enfin s’emmêler

La flamme...

The flame inside my soul is dying now
You know we’ve got to keep it going somehow
And if we ran away together could we keep it from going out?
Flame inside my soul, you make me whole.
Track Name: Seasons Change
Seasons Change

In autumn the leaves turn red and brown
Sometimes purple and yellow
Then they fall down, they fall down
A time of season has crept in to begin
A system of natural spinning
The Earth on it’s access and winter sets in
Let it begin

Oh I got cold on my bones
Oh I got cold on my skin
Wind break my back and lay me flat
on the ground nobody move or make a sound
Hold my hand if you will
Hold my hand if you dare
Try to understand if you care
The leaves have all fallen and the trees are bare

Chorus
Oh how are the colors at night?
When the sun slips away,
what are the colors like?
How are the colors in the night?

In springtime the flowers they pop up and poke out
They open their pretty petals and wonder what this life all about
Springtime is here

Oh I got cold on my bones
Oh I got cold on my skin
Wind break my back and lay me flat
on the ground nobody move or make a sound
How can I go on without you?
My love, oh I feel so cold
I don’t know where to go or what to do today
Sometimes I see in shades of grey

Chorus

Oh seasons change
Oh let it begin
Oh seasons change
Track Name: This Town
This Town

It’s been such a long long day
I feel like I’m worlds away from you
and all the things that we went through
and I know that deep down inside
this’ll help us grow
yes I know, they say that distance makes the heart grow fonder

Chorus
How come it took so long to figure this out?
I thought for sure that our song would last forever and we’d be together
Now the moon’s risen, the sun’s gone down
There’s no light shining on this town.

And it all seems so quite abstract
Me rambling on and on
I’m thankful that I met you
So many stars we wished upon but you see
Life seems so much easier when you’re looking at someone elses
You’re so wrong, you’re so wrong...

Chorus

But don’t say it ain’t so
I’m ready to let go.
Forgive and forget is all it would take
but there’s too many details, there’s too much at stake
and I know that I’m ready to let you go!

Chorus
Track Name: Je t'aime
Je t’aime

Bonjour mon coeur, je suis heureuse de te voir
Tu sais je rêve de ton visage chaque soir
Je sais que parfois tu ne me comprends pas
C’est pour cela je te chante tout bas.

I love you, I love you, I love you
C’est trois petits mots peuvent sembler si fou
Mais il faut le savoir que pour moi t’es une star
C’est pas kitsch c’est pas faux
I just want you to know

Que tu es celui qui me fait vibrer
et rire tout au long de ma journée
Jamais je ne pourrais imaginer
sans toi ma vie sera incomplète

I love you, I love you, I love you
C’est trois petits mots peuvent sembler si fou
Mais il faut que tu saches qu’à mes yeux rien ne se cachent
C’est pas kitsch, c’est pas faux
I just want you to know

Toi, tu es la prunelle de mes yeux
Soudé ensemble tout roule pour le mieux
Ton baiser, il a un goût délicieux
Tu es mon prince charmant, mon cadeau des cieux

I love you, I love you, I love you
C’est trois petits mots peuvent sembler si fou
Oui la vie est rempli de surprises
Tu es mon soleil, t’es ma petite cerise
Oh oui pour moi, aucun mec n’est meilleur que toi

Oh I love you, I love you, I love you
Track Name: 5300 Miles
5300 Miles

I can’t believe it’s over
felt like it would last forever
5300 miles later, I wanna drive some more
It’s like we’ve got cabin fever
but we’re always on the move
5300 miles later, I wanna drive some more
but what for?

Chorus
It’s just you and me, a couple of guitars
Two French boys and Buick car
We let it ride, we let it ride
Ain’t got no money, no needs, no room to breathe
We just let it slide away

How many bad road meals can you eat?
How long can you hold this dream do you think?
It’s all coming pouring out of me like a waterfall of love
I wanna drive some more, but what for?

Chorus

We both wanted this so bad
A feeling of satisfaction that we never had
Almost had enough, damn we’re tough
just a couple miles more, but what for?

I said goodbye to you as you drove away
Our time is up, I got nothing to say
Maybe you and me, we’ll do this again some day
We’ll let it ride, we’ll let it slide away

Chorus
Track Name: Stop
Stop

Stop calling me beautiful, cause I’m not
Stop saying I’m worth your time, cause I’m not
It’s written all over me, it won’t let me be

Stop saying my world’s all grey
I’m ok
Stop saying I’m down
I’ll just say I’m ok
It’s written all over me, it won’t let me be

Chorus
But please get me outta here
oh please get me outta here, outta here
I’m alive, so alive
I’m alive, so alive
And get me out of here.

Stop pushing me ‘round, I won’t go
Stop saying it’s my time, cause you don’t know
It’s written all over me, it won’t let me be

I don’t like what’s inside
I’ve done my best to hide

Chorus

Say goodbye, say goodbye
Say goodbye, say goodbye
And get me outta here
