the berkshires. 29 june 2013.

Oh honey, I really miss you
Oh honey, though it was only yesterday you kissed me
And that kiss, that kiss was so, so true

I guess I should know better
When it comes to falling
Yes, I should know better
When it comes to falling

Oh honey, I really miss you
Oh honey, if only you could hold me now
‘Cause you hold, you hold me, oh, so well

I guess I should know better
When it comes to falling
Yes, I should know better
When it comes to falling in love again

Oh honey, I really miss you
Oh honey, though it was only yesterday you kissed me
And that kiss, that kiss was so, so true

I guess I should know better
When it comes to falling
Yes, I should know better
When it comes to falling in love again

I know places we can go babe
I know places we can go babe
The high won’t fade here babe
No, the high won’t hurt here babe

I know places we can go babe
I know places we can go babe
Where the highs won’t bring you down babe
No, the highs won’t hurt you there babe

Don’t ask me when but ask me why
Don’t ask me how but ask me where
There is a road, there is a way
There is a place, there is a place

I know places we can go babe
Coming home, come unfold babe
The high won’t fade here, babe
No, the high won’t hurt here babe

So come lay and wait
Now won’t you lay and wait
Wait on me
I know places we can go babe

Coming home, come unfold babe
I know places we can go babe
Coming home, come unfold babe

flatiron district. may 2013.

I can see in your eyes that you mean it.
I can feel in your arms that it’s true.
And though I just heard myself say it,
Baby, I’m lying to you.

All of these years you’ve been lonely,
And not knowing not what you should do.
And though you are right, I’ve been looking as well.
Babe, I’m not looking for you.

I’m just as damn disappointed as you,
Only I just do better to hide it.
And the one thing that keeps me from falling for you,
Is I’m truly alone and I like it.

As we lie in bed I feel lonely,
Though we’re young, I feel eighty years old.
And your arms around me are keeping me warm.
But baby, I’m still feeling cold.

And girl you must know you are lovely,
You’re kind and you’re beautiful too.
And I feel in some way I do love you
But babe, I’m not in love with you.

It may seem strange that still I stay with you,
If it’s true you’re not really the one.
And why don’t I just keep on looking for her?
Because I found her and now she is gone.

I don’t want to get over you, my darling.

Sorrow found me when I was young,
Sorrow waited, sorrow won.
Sorrow that put me on the pills,
It’s in my honey it’s in my milk.
Don’t leave half a heart alone
On the water,
Cover me in rag and bones, sympathy.
Cause I don’t wanna get over you.
I don’t wanna get over you.

Sorrows my body on the waves
Sorrows a girl inside my cave
I live in a city sorrow built
It’s in my honey, it’s in my milk.
Don’t leave my half a heart alone,
On the water,
Cover me in rag and bones, sympathy.
Cause I don’t wanna get over you.
I don’t wanna get over you.

Don’t leave my half a heart alone,
On the water,
Cover me in rag and bones, sympathy.

Cause I don’t wanna get over you.

I don’t wanna get over you.

I enjoy being somewhere between Rio and Marseille.

Silhouette seasons and far-away reasons are all I have now
Borders can keep me if Rio will have me to dance and to drown
Take to the harbor like sails to set
Sleep for the evening in failed regret
Hold on to skylines of pale and coal
Clouds on horizons and love to grow old

On the way I will go
Where the days left to breathe
Are not gone, are still long
I am traveling on

Love is a hazard in lower Manhattan
You cannot escape, and musn’t be saddened
By men who abandon your eyes for another’s
There are always Brazilian boys to discover

Set your sights straight now
Don’t forget pain
Drink ’til tomorrow becomes yesterday
Think of the shorelines you have yet to see
Men who will hold you with eyes you believe

On the way I will go
Where the days left to breathe
Are not gone, are still long
I am traveling on

On the way I will go
Where the days left to breathe
Are not gone, are still long
I am traveling on

montmartre. 02 april 2013.

The best part about planes is that they contain people going somewhere. But the worst part is that those people are leaving something behind… every single one of them, even if they refuse to admit it.

It’s a fear, it is near. the shape becomes ever clear.
It bares teeth, extra sharp, that’ll cut you in the heart.
It attacks really quick, try and fight it with a stick.
It’s no use, give it up, this is life and this is love.

You are my alligator

Edith Piaf always hits the nail on the head…

Des yeux qui font baisser les miens
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche
Voilà le portrait sans retouche
De l’homme auquel j’appartiens

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
Je vois la vie en rose

Il me dit des mots d’amour
Des mots de tous les jours
Et ça me fait quelque chose

Il est entré dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause

C’est lui pour moi, moi pour lui dans la vie
Il me l’a dit, l’a juré pour la vie

Et dès que je l’aperçois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat

Des nuits d’amour à plus finir
Un grand bonheur qui prend sa place
Les ennuis, les chagrins s’effacent
Heureux, heureux à en mourir

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
Je vois la vie en rose

Il me dit des mots d’amour
Des mots de tous les jours
Et ça me fait quelque chose

Il est entré dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause

C’est toi pour moi, moi pour lui dans la vie
Il me l’a dit, l’a juré pour la vie

Et dès que je l’aperçois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat
