steveinsocal "... "Ferme les lumières" is the most seductive of poetic - post-coital - love songs. Acoustic guitar and percussion steer a pop-infused course as the uplifting chorus sees Veronica pleads with her lover to turn out the light to leave an indelible image of two bodies intertwined in bed... Trust me, Veronica Winter is an artist we're going to be hearing a lot more of in the future..."

Track Name: Le moucheron
Le Moucheron

C'est l'histoire du moucheron
Un peu bête, mais loin d'être con
Y'est tombé dans le vice
Souffrait d'alcoolisme

Mais ça bourdonne
Mais ça bourdonne
Quand est-ce qui va décoller?

C'est l'histoire du moucheron
Qui s'en crisse et tourne en rond
Y'est tombé dans l'vide
Peut-être ben dépressif

Mais ça bourdonne
Mais ça bourdonne
Quand est-ce qui va s'envoler?

Les pattes collées aux fleurs
Le moucheron manque de noirceur
Mais comme dans chaque histoire
Y s'rend compte qu'y'est déjà trop tard

Mais ça bourdonne
Quand est-ce qui va s'arrêter

Mais ça bourdonne
Track Name: Monsters
There will be a time for you and I
There will be a time for us to breath
Between the lines, we'll figure it out
There will be a time for you to see
I keep on repeatin'

Friends say I'm a mess 'cause I'm waiting
For things to fix themselves up
Oh, Running again
Should I take my time
What are your thoughts
You'll probably say what you usually do

Don't bow down to my monsters
Don't bow down to anyone
Don't bow down to my monsters
Look away and they'll be gone

Maybe you're right
I shouldn't bow down to my monsters
Maybe you're right
You shouldn't bow down to my monsters
Maybe you were right
All along
I'm all alone

There will be a time for you and I
There will be a time for us to read
Between the lines, we'll figure it out
There will be a time for you to leave
I keep on repeatin'

Don't bow down to my monsters
Don't bow down to anyone
Don't bow down to my monsters
Look away and they'll be gone

Maybe you're right
I shouldn't bow down to my monsters
Maybe you're right
You shouldn't bow down to my monsters
Maybe you were right
All along
You're all alone

I wonder in all places of thoughts
I sometimes feel you don't get it
But I can't explain myself
Is it a matter of fear
Is it a question of lies
Is it a matter of fear
Is it a question of time

Keep on repeatin'

Is it a matter of fear
Is it a question of light
Is it a matter of fear
Is it a question of time

Keep on repeatin'
I'll keep on repeatin'
Track Name: Ferme les lumières
Tu m'écrivais des poèmes
Comme on se met nu

La première fois

M'as-tu vu (x2)

On se dessinait des images
Sur le corps

Mais devine c'que j't’ai dessiné

Au creux du noir (x2)

Ferme les lumières 

Qu'on s'entende respirer

Ferme les lumières 

Le soleil va décider

Ferme les lumières

On va apprendre à rêver

Ferme les lumières

J'ai le souffle coupé

Au fond des draps

Les jambes entremêlées

Tu noircis mes idées

Tu noircis mes idées

Refrain

Ferme les lumières (x2)

Ferme les lumières 

Qu'on s'entende plus penser

Ferme les lumières 

Le soleil va décider

Ferme les lumières 

On va apprendre à rêver

Ferme les lumières 


On va s'faire mal à s'aimer (x2)
Track Name: Goodbye
You forgot the way we used to fly
Under the bridge and upon the sea

And I wish you could find your way back

After that cold winter we've been through.



Colors all faded to black and white

I wish you knew that they turned to grey

Guess its easier to fly away from me

I spread my wings while I'm still fighting your insecurities



From where you are now
I hope you feel free

Remember when we used to burn down the city

I think it's hard for me to fly through goodbyes

But isn't it better than a storm in our life



The waves are still crashing my mind this time

Though the ship' sinking, my wings are dry

If we must cross a hundred seas a thousand times

You better escape for this to work and so do I




Remember when we used to fly upon the city

I'm not so sure reaching the moon was the priority

Across the ocean you can always hear me whistle

Still isn't it better than a storm in our world



From where you are now
I hope you feel free

Remember when we used to burn down the city

I think it's hard for me to fly through goodbyes

Under the bridges and over the clouds

So I/high
Track Name: Crystal Clear
She told me she was scared
I told her I wasn't
I thought it might save her
But it clearly didn't

Though she did not know
How to stay, how to breath
Though she did not know
How to fix things
Though she did not know
How to stay, how to leave
She kept hoping

She told me she was afraid
But who isn't my dear?
I thought it might save her
But it clearly saved me

Though she did not know
How to stay, how to breath
Though she did not know
How to fix things
Though she did not know

How to stay, how to leave
She kept hoping
Though she did not know
How to stay, how to breath
Though she did not know
How to fix things
Though she did not know
How to stay, how to leave
Track Name: Hope this finds you well
A question of timing, maybe just your point of view
I guess I'm missing the middle of the story
But baby, maybe I'm missing nothing at all
To be safe and empty and tell me how safe is it?
Tell me how safe is it

He has more potential than what he gives himself credit for
Guess I'm missing the reason why, is there any reason at all?

I'll tell you over and over again
'til it's stuck in your head
What we are promised to and what we get
Is pretty different in the end
And one day you'll see
This is just what life is all about

I'm glad you promised nothing to me, not even to try
In the depths of winter, you'll find yourself broken and lost
And even though it's hard to say and that
I'm trying to convince myself not to, anyway

I'd still give you my hand when life gets hard x2
I'd still give you my heart when life gets hard
I'd still give you my hand when life gets hard

It's a place to fall and a place to grow cold
And i hope this finds you
And i hope it finds you after all
Damage's done and this situation's getting old
And i hope you find yourself
And I hope this finds you after all
Track Name: Raconte-moi
Raconte-moi l'histoire comme tu la veux
Tout dépend de comment je l'entends

J'ai plus l'goût d'entendre les mêmes conneries

Les contes de fées qui se terminent en bébés



Raconte-moi l'histoire comme tu la veux

Tout dépend de comment je la vois

Y commence à avoir de l'espoir au fond d'tes yeux

Peut-être parce que t'as décidé de croire en toi



J'allume le réverbère chaque nuit
Mais réchauffe-moi au creux de ma vie

J'allume le réverbère chaque nuit

Mais réchauffe-moi au creux de ma vie

Raconte-moi l'histoire du mal en dépit du bien

Et surtout n'oublie plus les histoires sans fin

Pourquoi faut-il penser tout bas pour espérer un jour 

Viser plus haut, viser plus haut



Les grands méchants loups sans aucune pitié

Les p'tites filles prêtes à se déshabiller

Y'a des histoires qui se terminent en cauchemar

Mais le p'tit prince, bien j'voudrais y croire

J'voudrais y croire



J'allume le réverbère chaque nuit
Mais réchauffe-moi au creux de ma vie

J'allume le réverbère chaque nuit

Mais réchauffe-moi au creux de mon ennui



Raconte-moi l'histoire du mal en dépit du bien

Et surtout n'oublie plus les histoires sans fin
Track Name: Let it go
I was wondering if paint
Could cover it up
But the walls are still dirty
And the sun never comes up

Those plastic flowers are
Never gonna grow
When will I learn to let this go
When will I learn to let you go

Paint can't remove dirt
From the walls
They said it covers it up
But it's still dirty as fuck

We still can't seem to figure out
If there's enough light
That comes into the room
To fill the darkness in our heads

I was still wondering
If paint could cover
Everything up
Can it cover it up?
The lies, the pain, the struggle
Of not being good enough
Of not being good enough
Who do you wanna be?

And even though
The flowers across the room
Are just made out of plastic
I'm only waiting for them to bloom

But we always
Seem to lose
I'm only waiting for them to bloom
But we always seem to lose

Those plastic flowers
Are never gonna grow
When will I learn to let it go
When will I learn to let you go
Track Name: Is the tide coming in or going out
Do you remember how you used to smile so much
I think back to those days of summer past

And I still love you, oh I still do



And I hope you smile when you think of us

And I hope you smile when your hands are touched



Oh darling, why are you so afraid?

It's not like we've thrown ourselves in jail

So now tell me a story that won't make me feel alone

Standing in a place that I can't call my own/my home



And I hope you smile when you think of us

And I hope you smile when your hands are touched



I hope you learn to trust yourself

I hope you can hold someone's hand again

You deserve a place filled with love and hope

Where love is great and does not hurt your soul 



And I hope you smile when you think of us

And I hope you smile when your hands are touched
