Lyrics

Because of You

Written By: Lucie Blue Tremblay

Because of You

Because of you, everything that I touch turns into love
Because of you, everything that I touch turns into love

I don’t care if I make money
I don’t care if they say I’m crazy
All I want is to be happy
Live a life that’s long and healthy
And I think of this possible space
Everything will fall into place.

Because of you, everything that I touch turns into love

They can take their games and their plans
They can hide their heads in the sand
The can even talk about me
I am not who I used to be
I have found a light in myself
And put my pain on a shelf

Because of you, everything that I touch turns into love

I believe in freedom and bliss
I believe that love is all this
I believe in being truthful
Tell no lies, won’t be deceitful
Lead a life that feeds my spirit
Heal the angry parts that need it.

And all the ghosts take up too much room
I just want to keep them in tune
Put some chains around their ankles
So that I can hear them rattle
Just before they come crawling by
I can understand and know why.

Because of you, everything that I touch turns into love
Because of you, everything that I touch turns into love
Because of you, everything that I touch turns into love
Because of you, everything that I touch turns into love

When You Can't Hear the Music Inside

Written By: Lucie Blue Tremblay

When You Can’t Hear the Music Inside

Chorus When you can’t hear the music inside
You lose all the strength of your soul
And life is a long episode,
We are told that time will go by

I have seen a broken heart
“Forever” written from the start
With no end in sight
Doubting in your honesty
The words remain but incomplete
And trust? And trust?

I remember times we had
The things we wished for but never had
I didn’t care,
I had you
Now I know that I was wrong
When you love you can’t belong to anyone

Chorus

Love and war
The costs are high in the making
Together we stand
But alone is the fall

Le Vent du Sud (Southern Wind)

Written By: Lucie Blue Tremblay

Au fil des jours, je pense à notre amour qui nous hante
As time passes I think of the love that has put a spell on us
Une si belle amitié que je n’ai point trouvé avant que tu m’enchantes
Such a beautiful friendship I could not find until I met you
Je suis ensorVelée, enivrée de baiser et de ton corps qui danse.
I am enchanted, drunken from your kisses and your swaying body.

Chorus:
Mon amour je t’aime et j’attendrais ton retour
My love, I love you and I will wait for your return
Je sens ta présence malgré le silence
I feel your presence, regardless of the silence
Qui me joue des tours
That plays tricks on me

Je sais que tu arriveras bientôt les yeux pleins de sourires
I know that you will be here soon, your eyes filled with smiles
Et lorsque je te verrais je vais m’abandonner à de plus profonds plaisires
And when I will see you I will abandon myself to the most profound pleasures
Quand je suis avec toi, ce qui s’éveille en moi si je pouvais te dire
When I am with you, I wish I could tell you all the things that awaken in me

Mon amour je t’aime et j’attendrais ton retour
My love, I love you and I will wait for your return
Je sens ta présence malgré le silence
I feel your presence, regardless of the silence
Qui me joue des tours
That plays tricks on me

Et le vent du Sud soufflé dans mes cheveux
The southern wind blows through my hair
Et un ciel si bleu, qu’il devient tes yeux
And the sky so blue, that it becomes your eyes

Tendrement mon amour au doux levé du jour ma bouche sur tes lèvres
Tenderly my love, in the morning sun, my mouth on your lips
Quand tu prendras ma main tu toucheras mon coeur ce cœur que tu libère
When you take my hand you will reach for my heart and set it free
C’est si bon de t’aimer toucher la vérité que tant de gens espèrent
It’s so good to love you, touching the truth that so many can only wish for
Mon amour je t’aime et j’attendrais ton retour
My love, I love you and I will wait for your return
Je sens ta présence malgré le silence
I feel your presence, regardless of the silence
Qui me joue des tours
That plays tricks on me

Getting Old

Written By: Lucie Blue Tremblay

Getting Old

There's nothing like getting old
Remembering the way things used to be
And as the years unfold so many things still left to see
The winter's much too cold
I let my children go
I think I'm getting old.

So much to understand
You have a child who thinks of you like no one can
And as the seasons change
So many things to rearrange
They let go of your hand
Become a woman or a man
Time to learn and understand.

Changes of a lifetime
Never knowing where you go
Or where the end of the line is

I learn to take their hand
To help me down the stairs and to the car
It hurts so deep inside
Tears and anger mixed up with my pride
When I used to be strong, when I could do no wrong
I think I'm getting old

Changes of a lifetime
Never knowing where you go or where the end of the line is

No reason to be sad
A very special time is what we have
So live it preciously
Truth and love is all we really need
So take care of yourselves then you can love somebody else
And you can think...
of getting old, together.
