Track Name: What's left of dreams (+ Denise)
It's time to take what's left of dreams
dreamed the last night
a whisper of fear, a prayer for a god
who won't make it right

Light is so dim, can't see through the wall
of confusion
The only word written on your hands
is illusion

Searching for something so bright
I hope flying beyond the night

Letters in the sand, the worlds on your command
everything has faded
trying so hard to catch memories, in vain
Holdin on some important details

Here's what's left of your dreams
some little tires sunbeams
Track Name: La nuit (+ Alexandra Dadier)
La nuit nuit à celui
Qui ne vit pas la nuit comme celui
Qui la vit avec envie de vie.
La nuit ennuie
Celui qui vit une vie
Ennemie à celle-ci.

Nuit et jour, jour et nuit,
Amis, ennemis, toujours unis,
Nuit et jour, jour et nuit,
Ennemis, toujours unis.

La nuit à toujours
Depuis la nuit des temps,
Nuit à l’envie de tant

De vivre une autre vie
De vivre une autre vie

Nuit et jour, jour et nuit,
Amis, ennemis, toujours unis,
Nuit et jour, jour et nuit,
Ennemis, toujours unis.

La nuit
