Criminal Girl

Written By: Danielle Hebert

It started when I was young
When I wanted some gum
Mommy wouldn't give me the money
So I did things my own way
Took a pack of chewy cherry gum
That was a lot of fun

Because I'm the criminal girl
I need want I want
I got a criminal mind
I want what I need
In a criminal world
I'll do what I need
To get what I want

So I didn't go to school
Hey I'm no fool
Don't wanna hear them preach
About the goals I could reach
I need to feel the rush
When it comes down to the crush
Get my hands on the loot
Cash and goods to boot


They took me to the police
They took me to the priest
They took me by the hand
Told me I was a friend
Told me I was a thief
But I don't feel no grief
I don't care who I scare
Who I hurt, who will pay
Hey, hey, hey

Aventuriere Accidentelle

Written By: Danielle Hebert

Aventurière Accidentelle

Il n’y a plus de temps

Plus de boussoles

Plus de règles qui tiennent

Il n’y a plus de peur

Plus de violence

Plus de laideur qui me retiennent

Aventurière accidentelle

Cœur de pomme

À bout de bras lancé

Il n’y a plus d’excuses

Plus de tourments

Plus de doutes qui m’étreignent

Il n’y a plus de gens

Pleins de raisons raisonnables

Plus personne qui me retienne

Aventurière accidentelle

Cœur de pomme

À bout de bras lancé

Aventurière tu es si belle

Cœur qui bat

À bout de rêves lancé. Tu t’envoles

Ouvre les yeux

Trouve le cœur

Sème les mots

N’aie pas peur

Ouvre les yeux

Lève la tête

Rêve tout haut

N'aie pas peur. Tu t'envoles

Trois Fois Passera

Written By: Danielle Hebert

Trois Fois Passera

Trois fois passera la dernière, la dernière

Trois fois passera la dernière y restera

3 jours à courir

3 jours à me cacher

Des hommes, des Dieux, des animaux

Des chemins trop faciles qui ne mènent nulle part

Jai perdu un soulier

J’ai déchiré ma robe

J’ai rien n’eu à manger

Mais surtout tout à gagner

Trois fois passera la dernière

Trois fois non, non, non passera

La dernière y restera…

Je suis tombée du ciel

D’un Boeing éclaté

La tête la première

Et tous mes rêves dedans

Et pendant qu’on hurlait, faisait un dernier chapelet

Là où il y avait la terre, c’est retrouvé sous l’eau

Duel dans la houle, volutes marins

Les sirènes se moquent de nous

Les requins j’escamote

Je ne comprends plus rien

Y’a plus rien à comprendre

Trois fois, la dernière

Je me suis réveillée sur une plage abandonnée

Mes cheveux sel et sable, ma peau un peau fripée

J’ai pris un grand 'respir'

Je me suis dit : ‘Bonjour’

Oh! Crabe qui va là, mais qui donc vit ici?

Le crabe m’a ignoré

J’ai même cru qu’il a ri

Et c’est là que j’ai commencé à courir…

Trois fois passera

La dernière, la dernière

Trois fois passera

La dernière y restera…

Ugly Girl

Written By: Danielle Hebert

Ugly Girl

Feel the
Love I
Feel for

Want to
Feel You
Want me
For you

Need to
Share my
Need for you
With you

But you'll never know
The colors of the sounds that I made for you
But you'll never know
That rain is falling for you know
But you'll never know
The passion burning inside me now
But you'll never know
The Ugly girl loved you

All the times I think of you
The lights grow dim the air grows thin
In your space I long to be
But it's impossible for me

The love I have could burn the sun
Tear the sky the world undone
But silence is my residence
You'll see my stance as innocence

And I'm running from you
Yes I'm running from you
Running from you
Yes I'm running from you
Cause I could not bear the pain

When you love Ugly goes...

The Way Home

Written By: Danielle Hebert


I have been lost
Eons passed me by
I crawled the mud whence they said I came
I believed I trusted

I have been a warrior and wife
I killed, I healed
Beautiful and ugly
I crossed bridges
And blown others

I know truth, I know lies
Unburdened I know now
The way home

I have been seeking the truth
As a bigot and a fanatic
Through the oblivion of drugs
Sold by my brothers or sold by me

I have been my bodies my wealth my titles
I have been cold and uncompromising
I have been my undoing

I know truth, I know lies
Unburdened I know now
The way home

Beat It To Pieces

Written By: Danielle Hebert

Beat It To Pieces

Take my head and beat it to pieces
Take my heart and beat it to pieces
Take my back and beat it to pieces
Take my hands and beat 'em to pieces

Come on, go ahead
See what you can destroy
Go ahead, just try
To quell this fire of mine

Take my life and beat it to pieces
Take my dream and beat it to pieces
Take my name and beat it to pieces
Take my will and beat it to pieces

There is no one, nothing
No engine, no conspiracies
that can touch me,
That can break me,
That can quell this fire of mine

'Cause I'm not from this world
No I'm not from this world (repeat chorus)
