Track Name: A little house on the moon
I'm living in a little house,
A little house on the moon,
Little house on the moon,
Little house on the moon

I guess you think it's just a funny house,
A funny house but soon,
Funny house but soon,
You'll join me on the moon


I had to walk a long long way
To reach heaven in my lifetime,
Heaven in my lifetime,
And now I've found :
A place with no money,
No possession, no god, no need,
Nothing to bind my mind,
And now I'm happy !


I have tried so many times
To find a suit that'd fit,
That would not be too tight,
But as I could not, as I could not I
Took a rocket-plane,
Flew above the rain,
Right up to the stars !
And now I'm happy.


I've been alone for many years,
Hidden in my tree,
Stuck in my cocoon,
But I know that, but I know that soon,
I will get used to me,
I will learn from silence,
I will learn from absence.
Now I have to be happy.
Track Name: Tell me
Give me the sun for a day
And I will share it with you
'Cause there is nothing more sad than being alone
On a sunny afternoon


Give me a tree to sit under
Give me some grass to lie on
And I'll tell everybody
To come and have a good time here
Whoever, whenever, whatever

Give me a smile, just one smile
And I'll spread it, mile after mile,
'Cause it wouldn't mean a thing
If I couldn't laugh with you
Whoever, whenever, whatever

Give me the world and I'll try
To deserve it, I don't lie
'Cause I can't imagine me
Stealing wealth from you
Whoever, whenever, whatever

Give me a life, and I swear
I will spend it to find you
'Cause I can't even dream of
Living it without you
Whoever, whenever, whatever
Track Name: Give me the sun
Give me the sun for a day
And I will share it with you
'Cause there is nothing more sad than being alone
On a sunny afternoon


Give me a tree to sit under
Give me some grass to lie on
And I'll tell everybody
To come and have a good time here
Whoever, whenever, whatever

Give me a smile, just one smile
And I'll spread it, mile after mile,
'Cause it wouldn't mean a thing
If I couldn't laugh with you
Whoever, whenever, whatever

Give me the world and I'll try
To deserve it, I don't lie
'Cause I can't imagine me
Stealing wealth from you
Whoever, whenever, whatever

Give me a life, and I swear
I will spend it to find you
'Cause I can't even dream of
Living it without you
Whoever, whenever, whatever
Track Name: All I want
All I want is to dream of a better place to live in
All I want is to dream of a better world to build
'Cause I have no home of my own, nowhere to feel safe, and warm


All I need is someone by my side
'Cause I can't walk on my own, can't sing all alone


All I want is to cry, but my eyes have been dry for a while,
All I want is to try, but they won't let me loose time
'Cause we have not a minute to waste, not a second left, for free


I just want to believe but I lost my faith long ago
I just want to be free to choose and think on my own
'Cause I'm no monkey you can pay with peanuts and faces, then laugh,
I will walk my way right or left, whatever happens wherever the wind blows
And I'll sing


All I want is to dream of love and peace for us all
All I want is to light a great fire that would warm
'Cause we live in a world so cold, our hearts are filled with stones, but I know


All we need is someone by our side
'Cause we can't walk on our own, can't sing all alone
Track Name: Song for a murder
This is a song for a murder
'Cause I ain't that brave,
I'd rather kill her 'cause it's easier than telling her
That I don't wanna be her lover


I went out to the grocery store,
'Cause I had no ammunition anymore
Looking for happiness in a bullet !
I bought a rope and I bought a knife
What a nice day it was to take a life :
A sunny sunday morning for a crime


On my way home I met a guy
He said : “I can help you if you want her to die,
It will cost you a bunch of roses.”
“If you wanna help why don't you mind your own business !
I may call you at the end to clean this mess :
A murder is a family affair !”


I tried the poison but she wouldn't drink,
I tried to drown her but she wouldn't sink
I guess she is the waterproof woman.
I shot her down but she stood up again
I got a machine gun but used it in vain :
I guess she is the bulletproof woman.


I finally offered her to go for a walk,
Just a little walk on the path along the cliff
And she came ! Oh God ! She's so stupid !
Telling her about the sea I slowly led her to the edge,
And, violently pushed her, but she avoid me at the last minute ;
Now I'm flying with the angels.
