Biography

"Regularly since the 60s, in all corners of the world, you come across "white" artistes who have all the sensitivity and charisma of a good R&B musician.
In France, one of the main figures in this category is Pierre Sibille. Through the gift of a husky voice typical Southside, a Hammond organ played naturally with "a dirty sound" and some very well written music..."
(Nova magazine-Sir Ali)

Lyrics

If You Don't Mind

Written By: Pierre Sibille

I just needed to know, if you donÕt mind, babe
Shall I let myself go, stir up my love, darling?
I heard that you plan to leave, oh, how many days
I just needed to knowÉ

Baby, why donÕt you set me free?
And show me your love just one time for me.
Baby why canÕt you understand,
This love light in my eyes, donÕt make me wait in vainÉ
I canÕt tell you my heartÕs desire,
Rainy days are back, I need more sunshine.
If you only, care one night for me,
Come on speak love and set me free.

I just needed to know É

Last night dreaming in my bed,
I saw walking to me, on the ceiling while I stared.
White night, one more for the bed,
Now I have you by my side, and not a word can be said.
I canÕt tell you my heartÕs desire,
Rainy days are back, I need more sunshine.
If you only, care one night for me,
Come on speak love and set me free.

I just needed to know É

Oh baby, donÕt leave me on a smile,
DonÕt be this shadowÉ
Let me bring you, bring you to the sunshine.
I believe you can be mine;
DonÕt leave me on a smileÉ

To Be With You

Written By: Pierre Sibille

How many more years IÕve got to pray to be with you
How many more weeks IÕll keep your face in my mind too
How many more days will I see your eyes when I close mine
How many more years have I got to pray to be with you?

Running through my mind, you keep running,
Running through my mind
Hiding in my heart, you keep knocking,
Hiding in my heart

When day after day, you keep trying to say, youÕre sorry soÉ
The wind blow my tears as they fall and disappear, as you just go
How can I be happy to live and strong to go;
When day after day I keep trying to say IÕm sorry so

Running through my mind, you keep running,
Running through my mind
Hiding in my heart, you keep knocking,
Hiding in my heart

When I wake up to find, the sun doesnÕt shine, where can I go?
Call my love in vain when I hear the rain, but I still donÕt know
How many more days will I see your eyes when I close mine?
But I wake up to find the sun keeps shining on my sorrowÉ

Running through my mind, you keep running,
Running through my mind
Hiding in my heart, you keep knocking,
Hiding in my heart

Some People

Written By: Pierre Sibille

Some people stay so good minded all the time
They canÕt believe what goes down in town
They wait for the life as children play around
Finding good news the rest is not their plan

I had young days living by JoÕs farm
Catching life and keeping good times
IÕm proud to say that IÕve walked on ground
Good minded all day with Jo behind

Someday I will let my reason go blind
The skyÕs grey but thereÕs always something gonna shine
If you smile, youÕll light all faces around
Someday I will let my reason go blind

Some people donÕt talk about yesterdayÕs time
CosÕ yesterdayÕs dead, heÕs buried by now
Tomorrow will be good if todayÕs fine
Homesick Blues is not our side

I try today to push out of my mind
The dark souls that predicting bad time
I remember the way that IÕve walked on ground
Good minded all day with Jo behind

Someday I will let my reason go blind
The skyÕs grey but thereÕs always something gonna shine
If you smile, youÕll light all faces around
Someday I will let my reason go blind

Ain't Worth A Damn

Written By: Jack Robinson

Sundown
A Long , slow night ahead without sleeping
And you on my mind all the time
I can't seem to find no peace of mind
Ain't worth damn without your love

Sunrise
The day's/ startin wrong/ without you baby
Alone in our bed
I cry
Why'd you have to go?
All that I know
Ain't worth a damn without your love

Noon Time
Can't eat a bite / ain't hungry , babe
With you out of sight/ can't fight the fight
It's hard to move on
Now that you are gone
Ain't worth a damn without your love

No Time
a' day or night without you, baby
I Just can't seem to get things right
I Can't see straight/ I can't concentrate
Ain't worth a damn without your love..

(GOT TO TELL YA NOW)
MY OBSESSION
WON'T TURN ME LOOSE
GOT YA ON MY MIND ALL NIGHT AND DAY
( I REALLY MEAN IT GIRL)
I TRY TO FORGET YOU
BUT IT AIN'T NO USE
ALL I DO IS HOPE AND PRAY

Since I Ain't Got You

Written By: Pierre Sibille

Some will say youÕre flying
Leaving me the sky, and the blues
Some will say youÕre flying
I ainÕt got no wings, I ainÕt got you

Some will say youÕre still running
Leaving me untrue
Some will say youÕre still running
AinÕt got the way, running to you

Days canÕt shine my way
Since night turned all blue
Days canÕt shine my way
Since I, ainÕt got you

Another day keep on passing
Ç God bless the child È, where is the truth?
Another day keep on passing
I must believe to shine on you

When The Rain Comes

Written By: Brad Scott

When the rain comes falling down
And there's no one left around
When you're feeling so alone
So very far away from home

I will be there for you
Together we will stay
I will be near to you
You will here me say

Cry your tears, dry your tears
You feel much stronger now
Take my hand I know the way
Take my hand I know the way

For you are beautiful and young
And for you life has just begun
And it should all be so much fun
But baby sometimes it goes wrong

Then I will be there for you
Together we will stay
I will be near to you
And you will here me say

Cry your tears, dry your tears
You will be stronger now
Take my hand I know the way
Your darkest thoughts, your deepest fears
They are all over now
The blackest cloud has gone away
The blackest cloud has gone away

When the rain comes falling down
And there's no one left around
And you're feeling so alone
So very far away from home
