1Moi... Lolita [watch video]4:27 [ FR EN ]

Moi... Lolita

My name is Lolita
Lo or even Lola
It's all the same
My name is Lolita
When I dream of wolves,
It's Lola who bleeds
When my tongue slips,
I let out such a wild giggle
As a phenomenon
My name is Lolita
Aqua vitae, Deluge of Love

It's not my fault
And when I give up
I see all the others
Ready to throw themselves on me
It's not my fault,
If all around me I hear
L. O. L. I. T. A.
Me, Lolita...

Me, my name is Lolita
Schoolgirl in stockings
Dyed methylene blue
Me, my name is Lolita
Hot-blooded, or not;
Partly-cotton, partly-wool
Secretive lips that hide
From mom that I am a phenomenon
My name is Lolita
Aqua vitae, Deluge of Love
2Lui ou Toi4:18 [ FR EN ]

Lui ou Toi

Where is "HE"
When he abandons me
my whole life is
so far away

Where is "HE"
I love his manly voice
Without him, "HE" is nothing

"He" is older
I wear his sea-blue pullover
The tears from his eyes
are blue, a blue as from the Chinese seas

"HE" is mysterious,
in his own stratosphere
Between the two, I would like
both

I have in my heart like this weight
In my throat a thorn
From not having made a choice
"HIM" or "YOU"
The windows are wooden
and these raindrops deadly
that flow deep within me
"HIM" or "YOU"...

Where is "HE"?
When there is nobody around
The whole city goes dark

"YOU" and "HIM"
My two halves of a man
Without them I
am nothing

"HE" is so strong
I giggle when he tires
When he is wrong,
then, I love him even more, he says:

that "HE" is so in love,
as water loves the waves
Me, without both, I live
with a void in my soul

I have in my heart like this weight
Tears as of Chinese ink
that condemn me for eternity
"HIM" or "YOU"
Finding in the depths of myself
childish whims
Yet the horses on the merry-go-round
are lifeless
3L'Alizé [watch video]4:18 [ FR EN ]

L'Alizé

All the winds,
Sweep away the heartaches
Me, I’m like the wind:
My spirit running at a thousand kilometers per hour,
I judge much too fast no doubt
It’s Ok, no problem
It’s justified there, I rouse,
I grow up, as does love

It’s at the winds whims
That I love to drift along,
Me, I’m like the wind
I kiss an entire army
Of dreams and flowers,
Plunge myself inside it
I know what I know
Even if I’m always crying
So say…

Stop
Telling me the wind has shifted
It’s not true
Please
Stop
Saying that adolescence is:
What we don’t know, because I
Have found my love
It’s a slight gust, it's a sweet wind of love:
It’s soft, it’s l'Alizé,
I say that love
Is drunk all the way
What she wants, A-LIZEE always gets it…

Like the wind
Carries the heartaches
In an Hurricane
Swirling at a thousand miles per hour
I’m like it no doubt
It’s ok, I am
At the doors of my life
I grow up, so does love

It’s among the four winds
That I love to live
Me, I’m like the wind
I carry all my secrets with me
In a garden of Eden
Growing ever bigger within it,
I know this connection
Will persevere
So say…

Stop
Telling me the wind has shifted
It’s not true
Please
Stop
Saying that adolescence is:
What we don’t know, because I
Have found my love
It’s a slight gust, it's a sweet wind of love:
It’s soft, it’s l'Alizé,
I say that love
Is drunk all the way
What she wants, A-LIZEE always gets it…

J.B.G., Bikini
Her codename is
J.B.G., J.B.G. J.B.G.,

Oh,she is a cannon
Calibrated and wears the pants
An icon of beauty

Canon, for we
Have got to give her
The Good God without resistance, for...

Without a bit of tact
Her blood is not milk

5Mon Maquis5:44 [ FR EN ]

Mon Maquis

It is an inextricable maze
Impenetrable also
It is my bed:
It is my place of rest

It is a refuge, room without sight
Where the air is pure, so pure
Is my place of rest my bed
It is my place of rest

It is inextricable maze
Of laughter, brightness also
It is my place of rest here:
It is my place of rest

It is a den, sure as a father
Secret paths, glass paths,
Small brother... it’s... also
Your room and your place of rest

It is an inextricable maze
Impenetrable also
It is my place of rest my bed:
It is my place of rest

It is a garden, of which the road
Is well his also
It is my place of rest here
It is its place of rest

Share everything, talk about everything
And to protect also
It's my Maq... here
It's his maquis

Hiding-place room, room with duvet
Of pirouettes in marionettes
Small brother, you here
I am your friend.
6Parler tout bas [watch video]4:42 [ FR EN ]

Parler tout bas

On rainy days
my toys are alive
The bigger ones have claws
like little cement bits
How to tell them
when one's not even sixteen
that the bed one defaces, no longer
tastes of "zan"

What's the point of
these old, living rags,
these words of love
that are much too short
I dream big,
as big as an elephant;
so immense are my dreams
Gentle womb
Profound eyes
My teddy bear says, "What's the use?"
His friendship,
it's hard to say
if it will last a lifetime
So...

Speak softly to him
Find the necessary words
Speak about everything, speak about me
To find rest (in)
His arms: sweetness
He has a heart inside
that is the target of my own heart
It's for him
this poem of mine
in an Inanimate World

On rainy days
my toys are alive
The bigger ones have smirks
that slap you
while passing by

What's the point (of this)
love that melts away
I have a friend
I would like to say,
but not for you to laugh, (that)
even if it's stupid...
I love him,...

Speak softly to him
Find the necessary words
Speak about everything, speak about me
To find rest (in)
His arms: sweetness
He has a heart inside
that is the target of my own heart
It's for him
this poem of mine
in an Inanimate World
7Veni Vedi Vici4:22 [ FR EN ]

Veni Vedi Vici

A twist of happiness
A temperament that makes you laugh
Because anything can happen,
Time tells us it’s easier
If you put:

A twist of Lemmon in the water.,
To change the taste without changing it’s nature
Live is beautiful spiced, and vigorous
The life that pricks
That raises like a Wheatfield

Veni, Vedi, Vici
It’s also a stroke of luck
By and by
The bird that makes its nest, a soft place
Veni, Vedi, Vici
My lucky star has shone, I don’t
Have any regrets
I’m fine and I love it

A twist of femininity
On a young girl’s body
The languages come easily, sworn
I love Latin in its shirt,

A peel of stammering
When I tell myself: It’s all going too fast
That’s where the mumys are watchful, I hear
The bells of the town far away,
Long live the wind...

Veni, Vedi, Vici
It’s also a stroke of luck
By and by
The bird that makes its nest, a soft place
Veni, Vedi, Vici
My lucky star has shone, I don’t
Have any regrets
I’m fine and I love it
8Abracadabra4:08 [ FR EN ]

Abracadabra

ABRACADABRA
My mood and me
Become different
Every time

WHAT AN ABRACADABRA
See my heart confused
My mood is coloured
Car en sac

ABRACADABRA
When my heart, it beats
I cast a spell, which
Leaves them speechless

FOOLISHNESS
Maybe...but for me
It's very enchanting, with no
Colouring

ABRACADABRA
My mood and me
Become different
Every time

WHAT AN ABRACADABRA
See my heart in pool
My mood is coloured
Tagada

A BRAS RACCOURCIS
If someone sets upon me
If it's a concern
I eat more

ABRACADABRA
Patipatata
Some sorcery
Even if it doesn't work
9Gourmandises [watch video]4:15 [ FR EN ]

Gourmandises

When you think of me
You, the wolf of the steppes (/plains)
Deep inside of you
Do you feel the rapture?
I'm so hungry for you
You say it without end
And take care of me
Tell me if it hurts
Oh wolf, are you there for me?
You make the promise
And if I offer myself to you
It's with thousands of tender kisses.

There are the kisses
The first
Taste of spray
Taste of sadness
There are the kisses stolen
In the trains of tsarinas
The kisses of a summer
Where the hand will move forward
But the kisses of Alizée
Are the true confections (/gourmandeses)

When I think of you
You, the wolf of the steppes (/plains)
I'm not afraid of you
Does this oppress you?
Take this road there
You say it without end
Oh! Lie down close to me
And devour me with your eyes, my princess

For kisses
The first
Taste of spray
Taste of sadness
For kisses stolen
In the trains of tsarinas
For kisses of a summer
Where the hand will move forward
But the kisses of Alizée
Are the true confections (/gourmandeses)

Oh! Wolf are you there?
10À quoi rêve une jeune fille4:09 [ FR EN ]

À quoi rêve une jeune fille

What does a young girl dream of
Sitting on the edge of the Nile
That she will blend into an echo
That will take her far, to the very top

What does a young girl dream of
From Africa or Manila
That she will offer to herself in sweetness
A coat, the velvet of a bird’s wing

It’s in the open air...
Without having air...
That she gets drunk on a new breeze
And never again from the ripples in the water
And in the open air...
Flying over the earth...
Stir the wind, the hour and the words
This girl had a gentle heart

What does a young girl dream of
When the evening grows dark
That the dawn will bring her a present
That she will raise herself like a bird

What does this young girl dream of
Sitting on the edge of bed
Of a river a hundred colors, a painting
Even so, in the interior it’s a fake

It’s in the open air...
Without having air...
That she gets drunk on a new breeze
And never again from the ripples in the water
And in the open air...
Flying over the earth...
Stir the wind, the hour and the words
This girl had a gentle heart
