« Waiting » Calirezo & ddooo


Calirezo: lyrics – music – vocals – album cover
ddooo: music – mix

Read the lyrics
Waiting for the sun during a cloudburst
Hoping for the rain on a heat wave
Always looking forward to the next day
Constantly expecting a sign, from you

Nothing else matters
‘Cause you are not here
Nothing else is real
‘Cause I’m now on my own

Waiting for a new light everyday
Searching for a clue all night long
What I have done to be left alone?
Frozen with sorrow, I’m still waiting

Your absence leaves a bitter taste
Why am I keeping hope?
Passing time, doing nothing
Why am I keeping faith?

Waiting for a sign from a dead ghost
Living with shadow memories
What have I done, why disappear so suddenly?
As always I’m waiting, for something,
For nothing, I’m waiting

Read the lyrics

I’d like to be a toy with a plastic neck
Or a weird doll wearing a red wig
And with my yellow button eyes
I’d stare at children and remain motionless,
A black smile sewn on my pretty face

And a small record, hidden in my stomach,
Keeps playing this haunting melody…

C’est quand les amours mortes
Détruisent tous nos désirs
Que la terre qui nous porte
Nous fait le plus souffrir

All dressed up as a princess,
I’d share plastic fruit
With fluffy dogs and velvy cats
hidden in a funny shanty

… A black smile sewn on my pretty face

And the small record, hidden in my belly,
Keeps playing this haunting melody

C’est quand les amours mortes
Nous poussent à repartir
Que la terre qui nous porte
Nous fait quitter le pire

And my head is flying away
Close my eyes, see the ocean
How can I smile with a plastic mouth
How can I love without a true heart
How can I see with fake eyes

One day, all worn and dirty,
I’ll be put away in a drawer
And there, in the warm and quiet darkness
… A sad sad smile on my pretty face

… The little record broken in my stomach,
I could sing forever to myself…

C’est quand les amours mortes
Deviennent des souvenirs
Que la terre qui nous porte
Recommence à fleurir…

Read the lyrics
What do you think of me, chéri?
What do you see in me?
Am I your little love, sweetie?
Am I your’s for la vie?

Since the day we tamed each other,
I claw at you, my safety belt
From the start, you’ve been my only rock,
I claw at you, my safety belt

Ho do you need my smile, honey?
May I remain blottie?
Can you stay with me, baby?
Forever, mon mari

« My River » Calirezo & Mahel di Menuna


Calirezo: lyrics – music – vocals – album cover
Marie Martin: music
Mahel di Menuna: piano – guitar & mix

Read the lyrics
A delicate breeze on my bare skin
The smell of curry from everlasting flowers
Buzy buzy bugs brushing against wild grasses
I’m lying peacefully, surrounded by blue sky

On the river, time has no meaning,
Swimming on the air… slowly,
Floating on water… gently

Playing with pebbles under water
Warm granite boulder under my sleeping body
Tiny tiny waves splashing against the border
I’m rocked by the quiet lapping of the torrent

Near the river, thoughts seem groundless,
Diving in my head… deeply,
Flowing into me… freely

Lazy time, doing nothing, just enjoying,

without a small word, just a faint sight
Thanking for being … surrounded by blue sky

« Heartache Ballad » Calirezo & Mahel di Menuna


Calirezo: lyrics – music – vocals – album cover
Mahel di Menuna: lyrics – music – piano – vocals & mix

Read the lyrics
They spoke about this and that
Under a quite painful rain
Trying to ignore water as they chat
Soaked to the skin, suffering from strain

The heads are dizzy
The steps are clumsy
They walk in life aimlessly
Their path shall be blurry

Suddenly she felt burning hands around her face
And warm lips kissing her cold neck
Time stopped, her heart frozen in a moment of grace
She bursted into tears, drowning as a wreck

The heads are dizzy
The steps are clumsy
They walk in life aimlessly
Their path shall be blurry

Her mind played the scene over and over again
It was the one of a puppet in an endless loop
She grew sadder and sadder then
Cause of butterflies in her stomach she began to droop

Will his head be dizzy ?
Will his steps be clumsy ?
Will they walk in life aimlessly ?
Can their path be less blurry ?

One day she gathered her courage
To ask him shyly if he remembers that kiss
But he was as silent as a blank page
He won’t recall any of this

Her head is dizzy
Her steps are clumsy
She will walk in life aimlessly
The path is more and more blurry

Her arm has raised in the dim light
She reached him and threw herself on his chest
He gripped her shoulders like the other night
And let his head fall heavily on her breast

The heads are dizzy
The steps are clumsy
They walk in life aimlessly
Their path is now blurry

Gravity pulled him down to the concrete
He dropped from life, as he fell apart
Her beloved prince was lying at her feet
with a knife in his heart…

BrokenDoll-540px

« Broken Doll » Calirezo & Mahel di Menuna


Calirezo: lyrics – vocals – album cover
Mahel di Menuna: music – instruments – mix

Read the lyrics

Baby girl is running on the grass
Singing louder under a dark sky
Baby girl is dancing with a doll
Crying beside an old cherry tree

Little girl is lying on the grass
Sleeping deeper and deeper
Little girl with the doll on her chest
Dreaming beneath the drizzle

Sweet doll, you know my secret
You never dropped me… but
You never helped me… but
I’ll always keep you in my heart

Pretty girl you’ll never run fast enough
To leave the grey clouds
Pretty girl you’ll never climb high enough
To fly away and kiss the sky

Sweet doll, you broke yourself
When you let me down… but
I never blamed you… but
You never spoke since you forgot to cry

You just forgot to cry.

« Little Angels » Calirezo & ddooo


Calirezo: lyrics – vocals – album cover
ddooo: music – guitars – backing vocals

Read the lyrics

Little angels lived on the ground
They had big smiles on their faces
And laughed all the time even in the dark
And laughed all the time even if it was cold

Little angels were lost among humans
They had big smiles in their eyes
And laughed all the time even if they were weeping
And laughed all the time even if they were bleeding

It’s no laughing matter
My sweet little angel lives next to me
Tries to take me up
on the verge of tears
Don’t want to give up

Little angels thought they’d be helpful
But one day, they shut their lips
And pulled a long face even in the light
And pulled a long face even under the sun

Little angels disappeared one day
Their sad smiles vanishing last
Washed with tears under the rain
Drowned in the deep night

It’s no laughing matter
I lost my dear angel (dear, dear angel)
I’ll deal with this loss later
But my life will never be
Never be the same

Never

A-land-to-rest
« A land to rest »
Calirezo & Marc Houri


Calirezo: lyrics – vocals – album cover
Marc Houri : music – guitar
Yves Smadja : harmonica

Read the lyrics

They say you have to be happy
You ought to be ashamed of your tears
They say, now you have a family
And a roof, life is gonna be so easy
No right to cry
‘Cause you have enough to eat
You must smile
‘Cause you have friends and family

They say you’re so demanding
So you always feel guilty
They say, you have a family
And a roof, you gonna see life is gone be so easy
It’s not fair to complain
‘Cause you make a living
You have to face
‘Cause you are smart and young

But you can’t stop thinking of this pain inside
You need to let the scream go out
You’re so tired of being strong
Just so tired of being wrong
You can’t stop searching for
A land … to rest (just a land to rest)

They say you’re so demanding
You ought to be ashamed of your tears

But you can’t stop thinking of this emptiness
This need to yell like an animal
You are exhausted of being strong
You’re just so tired of being wrong
You can’t stop searching for
A land … to rest (just a land to rest)

They may say what they want
You’ll never be different
No right to judge you
‘Cause you are not playing
No right to judge you
‘Cause you are not lying
No right to judge you
‘Cause you stay sincere
No right to judge you
‘Cause your heart is pure

And you can’t stop thinking
Of this light inside
This need to enjoy life
You’re so tired of being sad
This land is deep inside you,
and one day you know
You’ll find…

« Lipstick on my cheek » Calirezo & Marc Houri


Calirezo: lyrics – vocals – album cover
Marc Houri: music – guitar

Read the lyrics

Did you sleep last night ?
Give me your coat, she said
Did you eat something ?
Night is so long on the road…

Then I folded her in my arms,
a lump in my throat
I gripped her close to me
deeply moved, violently lost

Did you drive too long ?
Never seen dark rings
Under your blue eyes before
Please take a seat my dear…

Then I folded her in my arms
too many tears in my eyes
I held her very close to me
and kissed her on the cheek … softly

Did you put lipstick on my face ?
She asked with lost eyes
I can’t go out with a stain on my cheek…
Did you hear the church bells ?

They put flowers everywhere, my dear
they sent letters everyday, my child
Don’t you think winter is early this year ?
Do you think he feels the cold on his grave ?

Then I folded her in my arms
a broken heart on my chest
a broken soul next to mine

Did you put lipstick on my cheek ?
She asked

« Soft Pebbles » Calirezo & ddooo


Calirezo: lyrics – vocals – album cover
ddooo: music – guitars – backing vocals

Read the lyrics

Small rocks and pebbles
Dancing in the water
Tighten like an old couple
In spite of heavy clouds

Tears are tumbling down on my cheek
Sweet as secret whispers
Gleaming river of soft memories
Sinking into oblivion

But deep inside
Everything becomes clear
Yes deep inside
I turn to ashes

Soft wind on my burning skin
A gentle kiss from heaven
Caressing an empty soul
A lost shell in the desert

Soft pebbles are crying recklessly
For an almost love they never felt
Like a blind trying to smell the red
Like a child longing for his mother

But deep inside
Everything becomes clear
Yes deep inside
The world turns to ashes
