Track Name: 01 - Bold And Brave
I've a strange foreboding
I think someone is coming
and will pass the threshold
which makes me cold

Once again, I was right
I'd like to say "Get out of my sight!"
but taken by a heat stroke
I'm starting to choke

My heart is full of rancor
but i must keep a safe distance
I can't even take a quick glance
so I keep my eyes on the floor

I seem to lose everything
and I stay here complaining
I'm getting lost in a host of ghost

I fall and relapse on and on
I've never felt so alone
I wish I could really cry to finally feel alive

My heart is full of rancor
but I must keep a safe distance
I can't even take a quick glance
so I keep my eyes on the floor

I don't recognise myself anymore
I'm moping on a dull grave
I used to be bold and brave
I had faith like I never had before
Track Name: 02 - With Our Own Words
They gave us this chance
we grasped with full hands
cause they believed in us
cause we trusted them

Forever, acknowledgments, in their prayers
Forever, my brother and I, in their hearts

I admit, it wasn't "god's right way"
but it was the best direction
that our lives could have gone to
and here I can say :
"You're not unconscious, just a good mother.
You're not crazy, just a good father."

Forever, acknowledgments, in their prayers
Forever, my brother and I, in their hearts

We will reciprocate
with our own words
with our own world
every time we'll play
Track Name: 03 - First Winter Snowflakes
Looking through this window
I can see the first winter snowflakes
landing in the door-yard
All is gray above, no rainbow

Looking through my window
I can see my everlasting lovely folks
wandering in the fog
They're all my friends, so I bow

And at dusk they glimmer
like a garland of light along the street
Each of them serves as a beacon guiding me to my fate

Looking down from this tower
I can see my footprints in the snow
getting smaller and smaller
All's being swept by the wind

Looking down from my tower
I can see many of fuzzy regrets
giving way to relief
All has become easier

And at dusk they glimmer
like a garland of light along the street
Each of them serves as a beacon guiding me to my fate

But am I worth the trouble ? I think so
My future's been already mapped out
Track Name: 04 - The Attic
Remembering is a hard feeling
I think it was slow tide
you had helped me to run my kite through the wind
I'll miss you, but I understand your pain
so I persevered even in the rain

But your body is sick
and your mind is without hope
So you go upstairs to the attic
and you climb a chair to hang the rope

Remembering is a good feeling
I think we were so far
you offered me that guitar to play with
I'll miss you, but I understand your choice
I'll always hear your voice

But your body is sick
and your mind is without hope
So you go upstairs to the attic
and you climb a chair to hang the rope

It seems that you had to bury yourself all alone
but you're a family member, more than anyone
Now your heart is in peace like a dove, and your neck is broken
so we all give our love, to bring you up to heaven
Track Name: 05 - Heartfelt
So pretty outside and such a treasure inside
She makes me laugh and shares my delight
She can't be by my side
but maybe she can be my light ?
cause with her I feel safe
and this, in any place

I'm not allowed to love her
because she's not free
so if i can't be her lover
I will be what I must be
cause with her I feel at home
like everything else has gone

I rush against a wall and I don't care
On the same wavelength and with the same passion
I'd like the rare moments we share
to happen in slow motion
cause with her I feel safe
and this, in any place

The slightest sign from her amazes me
As friend, I could'nt imagine better
She means a lot to me
and I hopefully mean something to her
cause with her I feel at home
like everything else has gone
Track Name: 06 - My Sentence
One day I wake up with handcuffs
Gradually, I focus my life on this lie
without realizing that I'm drowning in you
And next day it still gets worse

One night I can't fall asleep with this hatred
I'm locked up alone in a jail of which you've got the key
but you won't cross the door to join me
Dreams become nightmares, my nightmare come true

When I try to put things straight
you cowardly pull the rug out from under my feet
Sure, I know you don't love me but I need you to confess it
So please, no beating around the bush with me
So please, just say it

Today I get it, it's over, I've served my sentence honestly
So I'm sawing the bars with my file to escape from your influence
And I hope never to be fooled again because it's my whole heart that i bet on
Track Name: 07 - Plagued By Guilt
Last rays of light are fading slowly
while the time burns quickly
A child is still lying
afraid of forgetting

It's hard to be fine
when living in fear
It's easy to be sad
sheltered behind a tear
Plagued by guilt, he becomes bad

In his wretched life time goes by
No more things to do outside
he almost stopped breathing
Is there a way to stop thinking ?

It's hard to be fine
when living in fear
It's easy to be sad
sheltered behind a tear
Plagued by guilt, he becomes bad

The day is nearing its end
No more belief in morning
He just needs a new land
to finally have feelings
