Excuse me ? Excuse me ? What the hell is this place ? I don’t think I’ve ever been here before Waoh, I feel so tired And there is this guy asking me my name You know I’m not gonna tell you my real name, boy Yeah I’ll take another drink The bar tender looks terrible Thank you And there is this old lady sitting next to me Boy, she smells really bad She says that normally the bar tender works with his boyfriend And they are so funny and beautiful when they are together but she says he is very sick and is probably gonna die. And everybody keeps smile and smile and smile Everybody keeps smiling And I keep dancing Did I take something tonight ? The guy… He is still here and is looking at me I’m so scared, I’m so scared Excuse me boy, this sofa is incredible don’t you think ? I mean it’s really soft don’t you think ? It’s really soft don’t you think ? And my skin is really soft as well I can feel it all over my skin People seems to have fun The music is so bad Can you put something else ? Excuse me ? Can you put something else ? Excuse me ? Excuse me ? Aaaaaaaah Listen, I’m sick of you, I’m sick of me, I’m sick of everything

A little girl with a blind blue cat Playing straight piano in the courtyard Falling snow Meowing cat A little girl feeling blue Singing at the moon Crying my name Playing minor Singing loud The blind blue cat is sleeping down Snores minor. Dreaming blue Snow is falling. Falling blue Moon is shining. Shining blue Then she lies down. Falling snow She screams my name. Falling snow I’m listening baby. I can hear you You know I love when you’re singing blue The piano feels warm And the cat is shining And there’s blood in the snow A small red sparkle in the night A little girl feeling blue It comes from her shirt And the snow is covering all And the cat is meowing all And the white turns blue I’m listening baby. I can hear you You know I love when you’re singing blue And the snow is falling And the piano turns white And everything turns blue

Here I go, going down, down, down,  My mind is a blank, My head is spinning around and around, As I go deep into the funnel of love. It's such a crazy, crazy feeling, I get weak in the knees, My poor old head is a reelin', As I go deep into the funnel of love. I tried and I tried, to run and hide, I even tried to run away, I just can't run from the funnel of love,  It's gonna get you someday. -------------- I went into a church, once On a sweaty morning I thought I would rest inside I saw her in a bench She was so pretty I was petrified o You lie… I walk to her and I made a joke… o Oh, no, he was so shy, he just stayed at the back We looked at each other… o and we laugh… He was so… Dirty, unshaven, proud, I never saw a priest like him Oh Mrs Jackson You make me feel so guilty o Oh little boy You make feel so young

This is a story of a young black girl She was feeling sad and lonely And everything was just so boring And she knew her dad’s LP were just there And she knew that nobody would come So she played it really loud And shook her head and sang like this NaNaNaNaNaNaNa She just blew her mind away NaNaNaNaNaNaNa She was like this singing singing singing NaNaNaNaNaNaNa And everything was just so fine NaNaNaNaNaNaNa and everything was just all right Now she works at a coffee shop She’s all dressed in black She is still a bit drunk from yesterday It’s gonna be a long long day, boy You don’t have to be such an asshole You don’t have to say it to me now and shake your head and sing like this NaNaNaNaNaNaNa And shake and shake your head like this NaNaNaNaNaNaNa And everything was turning white NaNaNaNaNaNaNa She was dancing like a queen NaNaNaNaNaNaNa she just shouted and screamed out hurray NaNaNaNaNaNaNa And everything was just so fine NaNaNaNaNaNaNa and everything was just all right It was the story of a young black girl Whose life was changed by the Motown And everything was just so pure And nothing was going wrong She was dancing like an angel And she was screaming : « Close your eyes Shake your head and sing like this »

Just me With all my ghosts It’s such a big town When no one’s there Just dust and shadow And I keep moving on Rely on me / Rely on me Just me Walking on the road With nothing left behind You used to be mine I should have been better And I’m still on my own Rely on me / Rely on me Don’t be scared Rely on me She used to say that If you think you’re alone If you don’t feel safe If you’re sad If you feel scared Listen carefully Don’t panic Breath deeply Focus on my voice Picture yourself in another place Make some coffee Eat some sugar Take your time Be a good boy Focus on my voice Focus on my voice Sing a song Write some thoughts Take a picture of something pretty Be yourself Drink some wine Take a picture of something strange Find a river Find a big rock Throw the rock as far as you can Blink your eyes Kiss the moon Enjoy the silence Feel the air Break your phone Set something on fire Do something stupid Do something wrong Disobey Make your own rules Be yourself Don’t do what I say Stop listening to me Don’t do what I say Stop listening to me Blink your eyes Kiss the moon Take a picture of something strange Write some thoughts Find a river

Oh Lord… Oh Lord… Oh Lord… Oh Lord… Are you waiting for a ride? Are you waiting for the sunset ? Are you looking for the bride ? Are you running from the widow ? You are bleeding on an arrow… You are leaving in the wide… Don’t you wanna have some fun ? Don’t you wanna close your eyes ? Don’t you wanna reste in peace ? Don’t you wanna hang on clouds ? You are bleeding on an arrow… You are leaving in the wide… Oh Lord… Oh Lord… Oh Lord… Oh Lord… You are bleeding on an arrow… You are leaving in the wide…

about

Sombre Lyon, France

Sombre s’amuse à juxtaposer des couleurs musicales comme des petites touches de peinture. Au chant, un duo homme-femme à la Lee Hazlewood/Nancy Sinatra, soutenu par une section rythmique capable de passer d’un raz de marée de rock bruitiste et sauvage à une ballade douce et épurée. Sombre, c’est un animal fragile surpris par une lumière crue, à l’image de leur pochette d’album. R.Lujah / GONZAI ... more
