Track Name: Comme Si
J’ai tout voulu tester
Jamais rien demander
Je me suis bien plantée
Trop fière pour être aidée
Je sais, c’est dur d’encaisser
De m’regarder tomber
Oui, mais tu devrais me laisser
Y a qu’ça qui peut me désinhiber !

Comme si c’est toi qui pouvais changer ma vie
Comme si c’est moi qui en avais l’envie
Comme ci, comme ça, on peut fuir à l’infini
Comme quoi, laisse-moi gérer seule tous mes soucis

Sans arrêt harcelée
Se sentant observée
A force de te mêler
Tu n’as fait qu’aggraver
Tout c’que tu vas proposer
J’vais nier en beauté
Je n’suis toujours pas disposée
Pas disposée à t’écouter, non !

Comme si c’est toi qui pouvais changer ma vie
Comme si c’est moi qui en avais l’envie
Comme ci, comme ça, on peut fuir à l’infini
Comme quoi, laisse-moi gérer seule tous mes soucis

Comme si, c'est toi, comme si, c'est moi, comme ci comme ça, comme quoi, laisse moi!
Y'a qu'ça qui peut me désinhiber X3

Comme si c’est toi qui pouvais changer ma vie
Comme si c’est moi qui en avais l’envie
Comme ci, comme ça, on peut fuir à l’infini
Comme quoi, laisse-moi gérer seule tous mes soucis
Track Name: Dreamland
You'd think, after all this time dreaming,
all the courage that it took to sail away
Once my ship was on its way, I'd be cutting through the waves,
the favorite of the race

But all the horizon surrounding me
Is plain uncertainty

Sharks, storms, sails torn
Wind blows hard against my faith
I drift, row, search for (hold on, stay strong)
A dreamland still so far away...away

So lost, miss the feel of solid ground,
it's been so long since I heard someone say my name
Did I take the right direction? Out of ammunition
Every sunrise looks the same

Sharks, storms, sails torn
Wind blows hard against my faith
I drift, row, search for
A dreamland still so far away...away

Won't leave this ship, even if it sinks,
built it with my own two hands,
I'm on my way, I'll find my people and my land
Track Name: I Don't Need No Lover
Playful, adventurous, they come my way
I'm foreign fruit, a challenging root to tame
If you want to entertain, I won't complain
Move your pawn, take me out of the mundane

But let's just go ahead and make something clear
I'm no beginner in this game my dear
So if you think I'll let you in, so you can go and flatter your ego on the fantasy I'm serving you on a silver platter, you're well deluded I fear

I don't need no lover
Just someone to hold me through the night... from time to time
I don't want no lover
Just a conversation in the moonlight... a vacation from my mind

Oh I've learned the rules; wisely choose colors and moods
Give out a few clues, keep the score tied, just smile and elude
A small wave in my ocean of solitude
You seem confused as I show you my cards and my next move

If you give me some care, I'll give you the same
But don't be fooled it's just a friendly game
So don’t you say you wanna love me like I deserve, it’s fire consuming what I paint my mirror, I know better, and yes I’ll take the blame

I don't need no lover
Just someone to hold me through the night... from time to time
I don't want no lover
Just harmonization, a flicker of light... a desertion from my mind

No I don't need no expectations
I don't need no frustration
No unbalanced situation
My heart in your hand, my hand on a rock
Spare me the spiel, spare us the culture shock
No more fine promises buried under the sheets
Won't waste my burning kisses on latent cold feet

No I don't want no lover
No I don't need no lover
No I don't...
Just someone to hold me together... just for tonight
Track Name: A Reason To Hate Me
He said "you're the one I was waiting for
I swear, I never felt this way before
You got eyes deep enough to take a midnight swim
Inside you’re fine-tuned like a Swiss clock and when
You open that mouth, how could I ever get bored

He said, you’re different and I’m longing for a bite
As if I was to surrender to his appetite
We had a good ride 'til I saw a red light
I tried to be polite, said "I don’t think I’m your type"
Then he shook me like a tree whose fruits aren’t ripe

I let him vent his spleen, spit his love to my face
Could taste his Xanax drowned in Chianti
It was high time to close the case
So I gave him, oh yes I gave him ... a reason to hate me

He yelled "I am the one you need, don’t you see
I know you don't but this is meant to be
Good luck finding another man with feelings so pure
I must admit, he got me thinking, 'cause he seemed so sure
Blinded by the picture he was painting on me

He cried "you’re playing me with your charm
My mind's going wild without you in my arm
Oh all I’d do to you, just give me a chance"
"You wouldn't want me, I smiled, to give in to skilful hands"
Then we did the worst routine I’ll ever dance

I let him vent his spleen, spit his love to my face
Was choking on chocolate, stoned by candy
It was high time to close the case
So I gave him, oh yes I gave him ... a reason to hate me
