Les duos

Spoon - Drift away - Faith - Hope - Innocence - 1974

 

1 Spoon

(Dave) Spoon in spoon stiring my coffee

I thought of you and turned to the gate

And on my way come up with the answers

I scratched my head and the answers were gone

 

From hand to hand wrist to the elbow

Red blood sand, could Dad be God

Crosses cross hung out like a wet rag

Forgive you why you hung me out to dry

 

Maybe I'm crazy but luaghing out loud

Makes the pain pass by and myabe you're a little crazy

But laughing out loud makes it all subside

Holding, I'm holding

I'm still falling, I'm still falling

 

Spoon in spoon stiring my coffee

I thought of this and turned to the gate

But on my way, crack

Lightning and thunder

I hid my head and the storm slipped away

 

Well maybe I'm crazy and laughing out loud

Makes it all pass by and myabe you're a little crazy

And luaghing out loud makes it all right

 

Laughing out loud

 

(Alanis) From time to time

Some move ahead while, some lag behind

It's like the balloon that rise and then vanish

This drop of hope that falls from his eyes

 

(Dave) Spoon in spoon stiring my coffee

I think of this and turn to go away

But as I walk there are voices behind me saying

Sinners Sin come now and play

 

Laughing out loud

Come now and play

(Extrait de l'album de Dave Matthew's band 'Before these crowded streets')

 

4 Drift away

 

Day after day I'm more confused

But I look for the light thru the pourin' rain

You know that's a game that I hate to lose

I'm feelin' the strain

Ain't it a shame-oh

 

Give me the beat boys and free my soul

I want to get lost in the rock and roll

And drift away

Give me the beat boys and free my soul

I want to get lost in the rock and roll

And drift away

 

Beginnin' to think that I'm wasting time

And I don't understand the things I do

The world outside looks so unkind

I'm counting on you

To carry me thru-oh

 

Chorus

 

When my mind is free

You know a melody can move me

And when I'm feelin' blue

The spirit's comin' thru to soothe me

 

Thanks for the joy that you've given me

I want you to know I believe in the song

And rhythm and rhyme and harmony

You helped me along

You're makin' me strong

 

Chorus

 

9 Faith

Paroles d'Alanis en français

Je ne suis pas encore née

Vous n'êtes pas encore nés

Moitié colère

Moitié le choix

On est pas encore nés

 

10 Hope

Paroles d'Alanis en français

Je ne suis personne

Toujours là

Inspirée

J'ai envie de tout sonner

J'ai envie de tout donner

Car je suis tranquille

Je ne suis personne

Et j'ai envie de tout donner

 

Je ne suis personne

J'ai envie de tout donner

Je suis tranquille

Je suis inspirée

J'ai envie de tout donner

Je suis tranquille

Je suis inspirée

Et tout donner

Je suis tranquille

Je suis inspirée

 

11 Innocence

Paroles d'Alanis en français

Eh, je suis petite

Je ne suis personne

Petite

Ma mère petite, ma mère si grande

Trouver les cloches

 

Je ne suis personne et je..

Je suis tranquille, j'attends

Et je suis, parceque la cigogne existe

Et mon bateau erre

Continuer, continuer..

 

13-1974

 

R:

I was born in 1974

on a calm meticulous street

someplace in the sun

oh the air was sweet

and enough lights sprang sparks

through the window of the room

not as raw to a ridiculous tune

slightly out of key in the mother hour

 

R&A:

So leave me alone

So leave me alone

So leave me alone

I'm busy breaking bones

 

A:

I was born in 1974

in a breached feet-first way

my twin opened the door

my very first dose of chivalry

I was dawned princess potential potent

with gold star and matching impression

big between two doors

small and loved and proud and unthreatened

 

R&A:

So leave me alone

So leave me alone

So leave me alone

I'm busy breaking bones

 

R:

I bet you were strong

when you should have been weak

like a dam that wanted to break

I wish I were the stones

your river learned to roam

in whispering gaze

 

A:

You were told in a kind North Carolinian way

to slow down, back up, or be hated

thank god you did not

and thank god you did

an angel either way

 

R&A:

So leave us alone

So leave us alone

So leave us alone

We're busy being grown
