Track Name: Doux lendemain
DOUX LENDEMAIN
(A/C: Meemee Nelzy)

Couplet 1
J’ai toujours dans la tête
Ces notes de trompette
Que j’entendais pour la dernière fois
Dans cette chambre au chaud contre toi
Tes lèvres encore humides,
Mon regard dans le vide
Parfums de rose et de jasmin
Mes doigts dans tes cheveux bruns
Moments mélancoliques
Tendresse et musique
J’aurai voulu pouvoir te garder
Ce matin là pour l’éternité…
Oohhh, je te l’avoue
Que si nous étions jeunes aujourd’hui,
Nous serions heureux et unis
Oohhh, ce monde est fou
D’avoir voulu plonger dans l’oubli
Ce soupçon de paradis

Chorus

Ce doux lendemain
ohhh..
L’un blotti contre l’autre…
Ce doux lendemain
Cadeau du destin
Je ferme les yeux,
Et revis ce moment à deux…à deux.

Couplet 2

A-t -elle parcouru le monde ?
Est –elle rousse, brune ou blonde
Celle qu’elle a pris l’homme de ma vie
Dis-lui surtout que je l’envie
Moi, j’ai trainé mes valises
Et assumé toutes mes bêtises
Dois-je faire le deuil de mes regrets
Pour retrouver enfin la paix ?
A la lueur des bougies
Je coiffe mes cheveux tout gris
Et me raconte une dernière fois
Ce matin-là avec toi

Oohhh, je te l’avoue
Que si nous étions jeunes aujourd’hui,
Nous serions heureux et unis
Oohhh, ce monde est fou
D’avoir voulu plonger dans l’oubli
Ce soupçon de paradis

Chorus
Ce doux lendemain
Réveillés enfin
L’un blotti contre l’autre…
Ce doux lendemain
Cadeau du destin
Je ferme les yeux,
Et revis ce moment à deux…à deux…à deux

Ce doux lendemain
Track Name: No one needs to see you cry
NO ONE NEEDS TO SEE YOU CRY (A/C Meemee Nelzy)

Everyday is a cloudy day now
My feelings are so heavy and painful
When no words can ease me
and no breath can let it go
Modern Life. Growing pressure.
Don't want to fall 6 feets under
So I constantly multiply activities
Too fast. what kind of stupid life is this?



Not strong enough to trust yourself
How can you believe in me?
Seeking some unjustified affection
I can't receive this love with dignity
This mist is floating ahead, hooo
Our heart is full of negativity
Where can we find some peace of mind?
Something to keep us shinning and inspired. Just alive.


But when we pass each other on the street
I can feel the same in your eyes
But you'll do the same icy smile lookin’ up to the sky
Cause you know that no one needs to see you cry X2

Standing tall and finding beauty everywhere...
We all need some peace of mind
Let the sun shine on your life
Stand strong, stand tall
Beauty is everywhere
