ordotupikos Difficile de choisir une piste tant cet album est homogène : "Runaway" c’est pour l'intro et le refrain mais j'aurais pu prendre un titre au hasard sans que le résultat en pâtisse.
Les mélodies, les arrangements (en particulier les claviers) tout est excellent.
Une pop d'une qualité que je n'avais pas entendue depuis longtemps, toute nationalité confondue.
Un réconfort bienvenu en cette triste année 2020 ce qui n’empêchera pas d'écouter encore cet album en 2021
Une réussite, vraiment. Favorite track: Runaway.

My mother in law's here again I don't tell you where she's a pain The baker thinks he is very cute Excuse my shirt covered with puke My hemorrhoids just came back I don't have time for you to chat My frankenpussy is repaired Bob wants to fuck but i am too scared Honey you have become a milk Your little stories make me sick Please be aware that i don't care When he has lost his teddy bear Here is a picture when he walked A recording of when he talked Here is a nice drawing for you Yesterday he made a big poo I think he's allergic to nuts I hate my third baby sitter He doesn't really sleeps at night You'll get it when you have a child Honey you have become a milk Your little stories make me sick Please be aware that i don't care When he has lost his teddy bear X2 Don't bring your brat at my parties I don't want to see your titties Don't cry hours for your poor kid Everytime you're separated Everytime you're separated Everytime you're separated Everytime you're separated

Have you ever seen someone like me ? I'm so classy I've been to Rome and Miami Been shopping in London City, do you think i'm a poor lassie ? Summertimes in PortoFino, next time i'll see Monte Carlo One star hotel i dont think so, i only drink champagne you know I would like to see Los Angeles, i'm a princess I think i could be an actress I'm a self made, i'm no heiress, are you suffering from blindness ? I just wear the best designers, i do my best for looking better I spend thousands in hairdressers, now i look like a New Yorker _ Hey you ! Please believe me it's true All the things That i do I do them to please you You just need to be rich I'm a precious bitch _ Are you gonna try satisfy me ? Hypnotize me ? Do you think i'm someone easy ? I'm nô redneck i'm a fairy, i was born to be successy Always perfect on the photo, painted nails and red stilleto I live in a loft in Soho, i'm a platinum girl you know _ Hey you ! Please believe me it's true All the things that i do I do them to please you You just need to be rich I'm a precious bitch

Break Up 03:57
We have been togethet all these years now  You should know what I feel But all the things I'm about to reveal babe  Will make you end up in tears    I know we have had our precious moments  Sweet and pretty crazy memories  But it's time to end our romance  If you love me , let me close this chapter  This cannot go on forever I know that your world is crumbling down  But don't behave like a fool There's no such thing as a second chance when  There's nothing left to improve You know we have had ominous moments  Bitter nasty silly memories  So it's time to end our romance  Hey you know me , I have closed the chapter  This could not go on forever    I know we have had our precious moments  Sweet and pretty crazy memories  But it's time to end our romance  If you love me , let me close this chapter  This cannot go on forever

Make Way 03:31
I am dancing everything's fine When I can feel right in my back Spine-chilling looks they're freezing time  I don't even dare turning back I try to think what I did wrong My wearyness is getting strong You know one day I'll set you free  You will go on but without me  No one should keep a heavy heart  Bitter feelings bring you down  Please make way cos' I don't need a man to be with night and day I'll do what I want no matter what you say  We are talking tension is high When I can see that in your eyes You're not listening your heart is hard I don't even dare talking back I try to think what I said wrong And my sadness is getting strong You know one day I'll set you free  You will go on but without me  No one should keep a heavy heart  Bitter feelings bring you down  Please make way cos' I don't need a man to be with night and day I'll do what I want no matter what you say

Runaway 04:43
She was pretty she was 15 and she liked painting and reading She was just like any kid cos' she could also be annoying On a hard day she got angry and decided she had to leave  She packed her things and walked the streets away from where she used to live She's a runaway And she doesn't have anywhere to stay And she often talks to herself and says " Why do they look away" ? Look into her eyes And you will see there the reasons she cries She misses her friends family and now She is lost somehow She was tired she was afraid and she was fed up with begging All her street mates told her "think twice,  you can still go back to your life" On a sad day feeling empty , she decided she had to breathe She packed her things and walked away from the streets where she used to sleep She's a runaway And she doesn't have anywhere to stay And she often talks to herself and says " Why do they look away" ? Look into her eyes And you will see there the reasons she cries She misses her friends family and now She is lost somehow

Time 05:24
Time is not on your side You're doing your best to hide Things we can't see with our eyes No one's blaming you to try The crime is not that you lie Just try to enjoy your life There is no excuse to find Your wrinkles are in your mind Fine your make up is fine You're doing your best to shine Glossy lips and smoky eyes There is no way that you cry Style's always on your mind Match things and accessorize You breathe as much as you buy You match your clothes with your guys Keep on trying to look like a star Cos' nobody knows who you are And your name is not Kate Claudia nor Scarlett Keep on fighting fot things you won't have Cos' you live in a world apart Try to live for yourself Don't get trapped in your shell Time is not on your side You're doing your best to hide Things we can't see with our eyes No one's blaming you to try Style's always on your mind Match things and accessorize You breathe as much as you buy You match your clothes with your guys Keep on trying to look like a star Cos' nobody knows who you are And your name is not Kate Claudia nor Scarlett Keep on fighting fot things you won't have Cos' you live in a world apart Try to live for yourself Don't get trapped in your shell

So what my skirt is too short And you don't like my make up But I came here to have fun And may be have a good fuck If you don't feel like partying You should follow my advice Baby just go pack your things I have plans for tonight So what you think I'm too drunk You fear I'm going to fall down But I am straight on my heels Cos' I've been roaming downtown If you think you won't manage Just find yourself a new girl I don't care about your age Just don't want a loser I am crazy I'm so wild I'm always out of my mind I take drugs and I drink wine Baby I'm one of a kind You can call me any name I don't really give a down I will never feel ashamed I'm a queen without a crown Oh my god you're so little That you can speak to my nipple Stay here and be a good boy I may tickle your pickle I can't believe you are crying I'm sorry I can't avoid it I have a career as a bitch That's why I don't give a shit I am crazy I'm so wild I'm always out of my mind I take drugs and I drink wine Baby I'm one of a kind You can call me any name I don't really give a down I will never feel ashamed I'm a queen without a crown

Let me one night in your arms , don't worry I'll be gone  In the morning I'll rush outside leaving at dawn , yes at dawn  Anxiety is on your brow, your hands are moist, you wish you flew  Away from me and make no vow, nothing to give, nothing to do  I don't want to run in the fields , Followed by birds and butterflies ,  I like you when you're strong  And when your eyes are really wild  No strings attached, no strings attached  This is the clause of our contract  Feelings in their protective pack  When it's over we don't look back  No emotions are on display  Exploration of all our zones  Just look at me as we make love   And make sweet moans  Let's pretend we did nothing, nothing real ever counts I'm not the kind to wait and sing a fairy's , silly song  Seeing your face so close is sweet and you know what I like you too  But you will never hear me sing « I love thee true, I love thee true » I don't want to run in the fields , Followed by birds and butterflies ,  I like you when you're strong And when your eyes are really wild  No strings attached, no strings attached  This is the clause of our contract  Feelings in their protective pack  When it's over we don't look back  No emotions are on display  Exploration of all our zones  Just look at me as we make love   And make sweet moans

He was someone simple She was quite a wild girl He fell in love at once and he fought to get a smile on her face One day she fell all the same and this tiny little flame grew stronger every day like a crazy endless hurricane She was the love of his life And he liked to make her laugh But he knew that it wasn't enough He's still thinking of her eyes Their color changed when she cried Memories are so painful sometimes , but vanishing is not a crime Then everything fell down Destiny was unkind He found an empty house, no letter was anywhere to be found He didn't speak for a year and this simple little man went crazy and declared he would never ever love again She was the love of his life And he liked to make her laugh But he knew that it wasn't enough He's still thinking of her eyes Their color changed when she cried Memories are so painful sometimes , but vanishing is not a crime

Don't say a word Don't say anything Don't say a word I'm not even listening I read in the papers about their escape They be two bitter kids from a bunch of sour grapes You better watch your step Watch who's knocking on your front door Now you know that they're watching What are you waiting for? Think you're young and original Get out before They get to watch your step Ev'ry day is full of fun and family spice They're making heroes out of fall guys They say it's good for business From Singapore to Widnes You better watch your step Broken noses hung up on the wall Back slapping drinkers cheer the heavy weight brawl So punch drunk, they don't understand at all You better watch your step Ev'ry night Go out full of carnal desires End up in the closing time choirs When you're kicking in the cot room And you're drinking down the eau de cologne And you're spitting out the Kodachrome You better watch your step Bye I send you all my regards You're so tough You're so hard Listen to the hammers falling in the breaker's yard You better watch your step You better watch your step Ooh, watch your step

One day she thinks she will try to be nice in the parties Cos' she makes many people cry and she can't help being nasty If she is drunk and high it is worst than anything People are dreading her bites they feel like killing the lady She knows she should be nicer But her attemps always fail And in fact she thinks « whatever » Cos' life's not a fairy tale She is getting on your nerves but you want her on your knees Cos' in spite of her behaviour she is quite hot and sexy You'd better hide the champagne cos' it's driving her crazy She will ignore all your pains , her sense of humor is icy She knows she should be nicer But her attemps always fail And in fact she thinks « whatever » Cos' life's not a fairy tale
