/// EP "MAKE IT TOGETHER" ///

" Tel un cliché de polaroid, ce disque représente la capture d’un instant. Il n’a pas été pensé et préparé comme le sont normalement les albums. Mais un soir de mars, il y a eu Franck,  Manu et Dorian réunis dans mon salon autour de moi et mes chansons. Des notes ont volé, des arrangements se sont posés et l’idée de saisir cet instant a germé. Deux semaines après nous étions en studio, tous les trois dans une pièce et nous enregistrions. Tout a été saisi en l’état, le cœur, les respirations, les idées qui venaient, la voix cassée de l’émotion, les mouvements, les petits défauts… tout comme dans le salon. On l’a fait, ensemble. Et maintenant, vous n’avez plus qu’à vous assoir avec nous."

Magic Passerelle

(Paroles et musique : Mary Reynaud)

 

Last night a comet crashed in my dream

I first thought it might be a real bad thing

Then strawberry fairies gave me faith

And I understood the Universe just sent you back to me

 

Meet me on the magic passerelle

Meet me, I know our souls already knew each other well

 

Last night I let a piece of my heart in your bed

Please be careful it might be a little scared

Find a place where it can be safe

Open that door deep down into your chest

 

Meet me on the magic passerelle

Meet me, I know our souls already knew each other well

 

Make it together

(Paroles : Franck Carducci / Musique : Gilles Carducci)

 

Close your eyes and stop your cries

‘Cause I will always be there

To dry your tears and take your fears

And keep you warm with me

Take my hand until the end

I’m gonna take you away

Hold me tight all through the night

We’ll be together again

We’ll ride around the world

Nothing we’ll make us return

No need to try and you don’t need to cry

‘Cause we’re gonna make it together

 

Take your time, open your mind

Now all your dreams will come true

Say goodbye we’re going to fly

Let the feeling come through you

All your troubles are now over

And the best it’s to come

The sun will shine and you’ll be mine

Life has only begun

We’ll ride around the world

Nothing we’ll make us return

No need to try and you don’t need to cry

‘Cause we’re gonna make it together

No need to try and you don’t need to cry

‘Cause we’re gonna make it together

 

Sad for nothing

(Paroles : Mary Reynaud, Christian Labonne / Musique : Mary Reynaud)

 

The sky is blue and I'm in a cloudy mood

I say I'm cool but my face don't move

I'ts warm and hot but I'm freezing inside

So I stand here praying for my holy guides

 

My belly's full but I feel so empty

Sheryl is singing but I can't hear a thing

It's seems like everything is fine

But right my mellow heart can't figure it out

 

If only I was suffering, but I don't, I am healthy, strong and you know me

If only I was despairing, but I don't, I have a bright future in front of me

If only I was lonely, but I'm not, I have a lover, friends and family

I just can't help it, I guess I'm just sad for nothing.....Why ?

 

I'm bored while that list is extending

I'll overcome when it's time to begin

It puts me off to see all that I miss

I'm feeling weak as the day just begins

 

If only I was suffering, but I don't, I am healthy, strong and you know me

If only I was despairing, but I don't, I have a bright future in front of me

If only I was lonely, but I'm not, I have a lover, friends and family

I just can't help it, I guess I'm just sad for nothing

 

And while I'm feeling blue, guilt comes flooding in

There's nothing sadder than being sad for nothing

 

Why?

 

I know I should get up and trust my divine light

When so many struggle and still keep on the fight

I know I have no good reasons to complain

But right now my blanket is my only friend

 

If you don't understand, well I don't give a damn,

But it tortures me to feel like this

I 'm striving through the haze I thought could not be found

It hurts my pride to say it but I'm completely bound

 

I know! I’m just sad for nothing

 

No way you can guess

(Paroles et musique : Christian Labonne)

​I think I have a crush on you

It seems like I am falling for you

I know I’m wrong, I’m so young

But there’s not much that I can do

When I know that you’re around

My heart beats not quite the same

When I hear you sing your blues

Or hum a gentle lullaby

And there’s no way you can guess how people fall in love

There’s no way you can read it in the stars

‘Cause it blows so strong

It knocks you off your feet

And leaves you without much belief

 

Being in love makes me sad

And so happy at the same time

I wish that I could kiss your eyes

And make that magic carpet fly

I picture us in any frame

Hand in hand down lover’s lane

If it’s a daydream, it’s my dream

And I wouldn’t be me without it

But there’s no way you can guess how people fall in love

There’s no way you can read it in the stars

‘Cause it blows so strong

It knocks you off your feet

And leaves you without much belief

​I think I have a crush on you

It seems like I am falling for you

I know I’m wrong, I’m so young

But there’s not much that I can do

But there’s no way you can guess how people fall in love

There’s no way you can read it in the stars

‘Cause it blows so strong

It knocks you off your feet

And leaves you without much belief

 

Under the figtree

(Paroles : Mary Reynaud, Christian Labonne / Musique : Mary Reynaud)

Let's spend the afternoon under the figtree

I'm Alice in wonderland and you are a pixie

Undercover of the leaves, there is a distance

Where my asylum turns noise into silence

                            

When Mum comes she peaks her heart

How she feels when times get hard

A pie she'll bake tonight

Happiness of those days passing by

Weariness of sweet childhood life

 

Let's spend the afternoon under the figtree

I'm Alice in wonderland and you are a pixie

Undercover of the leaves, there is a distance

Where my asylum turns noise into silence

 

With my Sweet’s soft words of love

Muttered in our shady nest

About plans we dare not plan

See them fly  those sweet birds of youth

See them shine those sweet dreams we share

 

Seems like yesterday that tiny branch was duk. in the ground

One chance in many that it might become such a tree

He listens to nighbirds & howls at the moon when it's around

And when the moon is bright, she sends him regards from outer space

 

Let's spend the afternoon under the figtree

I'm Alice in wonderland would you follow me?

 

3 chords and the truth

(Paroles et musique : Mary Reynaud

Stuck in front of that white page

Wondering what you’d want me to say

I’m lost, in an ocean of question marks

 

Time to give a piece of me

To your radios, to your TVs

And what if you don’t like the part I choose?

 

So I take a deep breath and connect with my light

Roots  deep in the ground and head high in the sky

Then I wonder what Deacon Claybourne would do?

He’d say, give them your 3 chords and the truth

 

I wish i could satisfy everyone

Friends or strangers in the dark

But then I forget who I truly wanna be

 

It works well when I trust my senses

And I love drawing smiles on your faces

But I can’t help fearing everything could stop

 

So I take a deep breath and connect with my light

Roots  deep in the ground and head high in the sky

Then I wonder what Deacon Claybourne would do?

He’d say, give them your 3 chords and the truth

 

Put in front of a big audience

Thinking about nothing but being myself

Naturally embodying my soul     

 

Channeling all the love that I can

Using my voice, my heart & my hands

Those are prisms, spreading Light on you all

Finally, it seems like I can take it all
