The striking live performances where the true expression of the music is best displayed /

In fact... all of this and more make Dress a different and addictive band..!

BRIGITTE BUHLMANN-POGET, vocal
A natural and soulful expression in her voice, an attraction of a sort... inspiring and addictive...

LAURENT POGET, guitar
He’s able to get a f.... tone out of anything that’s got strings on!! Holds the band together... A little shy but never with his guitar...

LIVE BAND with

CHRISTOPHE CALPINI, drums, percussions, piano, sampler
The play master and the most iconoclastic bastard in the world!! Awesome...!!

MIMMO PISINO, bass
Fragile as a child hidden in a big italian frame, he’s a very charming guy!!Beside that, he lays down a powerful bass...

DANIEL PEREZ, guitar
His gipsy attitude is strikingly original and unexpected in this format... a perfect balance in the Live band... far out man !!

Lyrics

Misunderstanding

Written By: Brigitte Buhlmann-Poget, Laurent Poget

So many traps we fell into
We lost the count of two and two
So many hopes are gone in vain
After all we had the same aim

So many times the same mistakes
But I guess that’s what it takes
So many nights not a word to say
I’ve got a black hole in my heart today

It’s a big big misunderstanding
We don’t mean all the things that we say
I’m on the verge of going insane
But I love you just the same

I’ve seen them all and got their words
Why do I feel I’ve never been heard?
The time has come for you to see
I’m just a woman and you know me

You should look for another target
Cos’ somehow I’ll never forget
The distance you left me so cold
Now I need to come home

It’s a big big misunderstanding
We don’t mean all the things that we say
I’m on the verge of going insane
But I love you just the same

Give a Hand

Written By: Brigitte Buhlmann-Poget, Laurent Poget

Can you send out those vibes you’re feeling too?
What’s your mirror reflecting back to you?
Don’t you need nobody’s help to reveal your soul?
Do you have someone to call?

Give a hand to your sister, leave your cares behind
Give a hand to your brother, for a new state of mind

We live in a world of pretence
But what can you do to give it a chance?
It’s got to make sense... it’s got to make sense

Give a hand to your sister, leave your stares behind
Give a hand to your brother, for a new state of mind

I don’t know what you are talking about
Don’t you hear anybody’s shout?
Is there no way out ?

Give a hand to your sister, leave your stares behind
Give a hand to your brother, for a new state of mind

Keep a smile on your face
No need to fall in disgrace
You know time is on your side

This Time

Written By: Brigitte Buhlmann-Poget, Laurent Poget

This time,
Lookin’ outside my window
Feeling so down,
Wishing I could get this sad mood out of me
Every flake of snow makes me feel damned,
Put a shade of pale on my world, on my sanity
This time...

No one knows what we’re talking about come on
Talk about conscious
The sun goes down It’s getting late for the world
Think about precious

This time,
You hope that so many things will happen
But if you dig hard enough in your soul
You will find a way out
You can consider you’re not wasting your time
Time to share your life

No one knows what we’re talking about come on
Talk about conscious
The sun goes down It’s getting late for the world
Think about precious

Please You

Written By: Brigitte Buhlmann-Poget, Laurent Poget

Every day I try my best to hear you
But all the things I do are meaningless
Every single minute I wonder
How could I be right for you?

I can’t help myself but wonder why
What used to be so easy feels so hard now?
We’re wasting the time that passes by

All I want is to please you, nothing but please you
It’s so hard to please you, nothing but please you… it’s so hard

I need to know what’s goin’ on
Cos’ every time I look at you I feel all alone
Your life seems to go on without me
Tell me now what I gotta do

I give the best I can but it’s not enough
It looks like I’m always a step behind
Whatever I say is misunderstood
Why don’t you hear me now?

All I want is to please you, nothing but please you
It’s so hard to please you, nothing but please you… it’s so hard

Got to understand we’ll share this future together
But we won’t need to dream the same story
Life is too precious to tear it down
Cos’ all I want ... All I want...

...Is to please you, nothing but please you
It’s so hard to please you, nothing but please you… it’s so hard

Walk Out

Written By: Brigitte Buhlmann-Poget, Laurent Poget

Walk out that door
Don’t say no more
Leave me alone
Don’t stay so close
I’m askin’ you
I know so many fears
But I’ve reached a point
Where you fade away...

How many chances
I’ve got to take
Will I survive
Tomorrow’s fate

No tears no cry
Give me more time
How can I believe in love,
in life when I’m so scared
So what became of me
I need your help
Is anybody there ?
Anybody who can stop it before I die

How many chances
I’ve got to take
Will I survive
Tomorrow’s fate

Give it Up

Written By: Brigitte Buhlmann-Poget, Laurent Poget

We got to make it
We got to make it now
It's time to make a change
Time to look beyond our pain

So much emotion, hopin’ to find
In dreams a real faith Just to run away

Freedom is all we need
But don’t forget you’re not alone
Your ragged face let everybody see
You ride too many white horses

Feelin’ down, tryin’ to find
In your eyes the right time Just to run away

Give it up before you lock up your mind
You believe things are under control, don’t be so blind
Everybody’s free to choose what they need
Everybody’s free what they need what they want
But don’t forget to take a deep breath...

Walkin’ down the road
Askin’ for myself
I’m waitin’ for nothing else
But a sign of hope

Why should people go
Against the flow
No matter what they say
Just run away

Give it up before you lock up your mind
You believe things are under control, don’t be so blind
Everybody’s free to choose what they need
Everybody’s free what they need what they want
But don’t forget to take a deep breath...

Everybody’s free... Cos’ Everybody’s free...
