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.

Tell me 04:19
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

All I want 03:32
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

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.
