Call Me Out

I glance your way
And catch you looking mine
So I turn away
I laugh at your jokes
But never look in your eyes
So maybe you don’t know

I wish I was more brave
I wish I was just a little less shy
Wish I had the courage
To wiggle my little white flag

But I’m afraid to make a fool
(Of myself)
So I’m afraid I’ll need you to
(Make me tell)

Call me out
Call me out on my bluff
Call me out on my heart
Doing cartwheels and somersaults
Call me out
Call me out cause I blush
Call me out cause my heart’s
Dying to lead this love assault

I dream of us
And a house we call home
But then I wake up
I say I love you
To your photo on my phone
But with you I go mute

I’m not good at love games
It’d be simpler if you could read my mind
I wish you’d take the reins
And drive me to confess all night

Cause I’m afraid to make a fool
(Of myself)
So I’m afraid I’ll need you to
(Make me tell)

Call me out
Call me out on my bluff
Call me out on my heart
Doing cartwheels and somersaults
Call me out
Call me out cause I blush
Call me out cause my heart’s
Dying to lead this love assault

With a little daring I’d walk right up to you
With a little more guts I’d bare my heart to you
But with a little luck you’ll pick up on my truth
And you’ll

Call me out
Call me out on my bluff
Call me out on my heart
Doing cartwheels and somersaults
Call me out
Call me out cause I blush
Call me out cause my heart’s
Dying to lead this love assault

Call me out cause my heart’s
Dying to lead this love assault

Call Me Out

No Party Girl (Om shanti)

Go call me a party pooper
It won’t be the first time or the last
I bet you’ll look back when you’re older
And remember your youth as a flash

You say the more the merrier
That’s just one way to view the scene
I say the more the messier
Look at all those dishes to clean

I’m no party girl
Hear all these voices in my head
No need to add your own
I’m no party girl
I play all these songs in my head
Like to dance on my own

I’m no party girl
I’ve tamed my inner animal
No time for human zoos
I’m no party girl
I’ve got my act under control
Don’t care for smoke and booze

Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)

Go ahead and tag me as shy
But shyness is insecurity
Plugging into the higher Wi-Fi
Is how I recharge my batteries

When I’m alone, I’m not lonely
Like those who crave companionship
When I’m quiet I’m not angry
That’s just how I reload my ship

I’m no party girl
Hear all these voices in my head
No need to add your own
I’m no party girl
I play all these songs in my head
Like to dance on my own

I’m no party girl
I’ve tamed my inner animal
No time for human zoos
I’m no party girl
I’ve got my act under control
Don’t care for smoke and booze

Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)
Om shanti (shanti, shanti)

I’m sorry your fun depends on me
That seems to be typical of your kind
You see, you’re a dopamine junkie
While my kind runs on acethylcholine
We’re the 3 in 10 minority
Whose pleasure drug is a little more kind

A little respect for the girl with the buzy front lobe, please
A little patience with the girl with the hightened senses, please

Om shanti, om shanti...

I’m no party girl

Taste Like Regret


The magic's lost
The spark died out
You didn't say it out loud
But it was easy to figure out
Something was lost
Our love was stained
You thought you needed a change
And now things will never be the same

I am no fool and you know
So you kiss me and hold me close
I am no fool but I know
It'd be harder to let you go

I try to move on
I try to carry on
But your eyes tell me something's wrong
I try my hardest
But it's hard to forget
When your kisses taste like regret

The magic's gone
The well dried out
Happened that night you went out
And came home after the lights went out
The moment's gone
When love was bright
And we thought we'd win the fights
But some wrongs can never be made right

I am no fool and you know
So you kiss me and hold me close
I am no fool but I know
It'd be harder to let you go

I try to move on
I try to carry on
But your eyes tell me something's wrong
I try my hardest
But it's hard to forget
When your kisses taste like regret

Oh, I try my hardest
But it's hard to forget
When your kisses taste like regret

The magic's lost
The spark died out
You didn't say it out loud
But it was easy to figure out

Hold me and I will pretend
That the whole thing never happened
Hold me and we can pretend
That we're not coming to the end

Là-haut, l’étoile

Quand les hommes vivaient soumis
Au vice et au péché
Un miracle se produisit
Un signe incontesté

Comme dictait la prophétie
De l’Ange Messager
À Joseph et à Marie
Le Sauveur était né

Quand il a vu
Là-haut, l’étoile
Le monde a su
Qu’était né l’Enfant-Roi

Quand les hommes allaient, perdus
Vers les gouffres de feu
Une étoile est apparue
Un fanal dans les cieux

Tel que Dieu l’avait promis
À toute l’humanité
Pour ouvrir le Paradis
Le Messie était né

Quand il a vu
Là-haut, l’étoile
Le monde a su
Qu’était né l’Enfant-Roi

Quand les hommes étaient caprice
Orgueil et volupté
Dieu envoya son Saint Fils
Expier leurs péchés

Quand il a vu

God, You’re Beautiful!

Say, you must be a magician
Because every time you walk into the room
Everything around you disappears
I’d like to know how you do it

Say, would you be a comedian?
Because I can’t help smiling when I’m with you
You make all my troubles disappear
You must tell me how you do it

There’s no doubt about it
You must be God’s favourite

Wingless angel
Don’t think I can be fooled
I know God is in you
Cause God, you’re beautiful!

Ethereal
Is a word coined for you
No doubt God is in you
And God, you’re beautiful!

I close my eyes and I see you
Your soft hair, your deep, bright eyes, your striking smile
All so real, I could almost touch it
Say, is there any chance of it?

I dream at night and I’m with you
On a date, on a cruise ship, a theme park ride
On the moon, watching the sky map shift
How could I not be swayed by it?

Your secret’s been unhearted
You weren’t born on Earth

Wingless angel
Don’t think I can be fooled
I know God is in you
Cause God, you’re beautiful!

Ethereal
Is a word coined for you
No doubt God is in you
And God, you’re beautiful!

Say, you must be a musician
Because every time you step into the light
I can hear a hundred voices sing
In the most glorious symphony

Wingless angel
Don’t think I can be fooled
I know God is in you
Cause God, you’re beautiful!

Ethereal
Is a word coined for you
No doubt God is in you
And God, you’re beautiful!

Yeah, God, you're beautiful!

God, you're beautiful!..

God, You're Beautiful!

Never Say Forever

If the way that I feel
Was a decision that I made
Then I would choose right now and right here
To take you with me to the grave

But I am not naive
People have called me cynical
And since you share the air that I breathe
You know I’m always rational

Although I love you now
And I hope I will tomorrow
I can’t promise you now
That I will love you tomorrow

So as a precaution, because there's no way to be sure
I will tread with caution, speak my words with measure
And as not to risk being caught in a lie later
When I say I love you, I’ll never say forever

If I am not able
To pledge my endless faithfulness
Please don’t read it as an oracle
That I’ll go find somebody else

You know you make me blush
I just don’t want to deceive you
With bold predictions that don’t mean much
Until we can make them come true

Although I love you now
And I think I will tomorrow
I can’t promise you now
That I will love you tomorrow

So as a precaution, since feelings aren’t set in stone
I will tread with caution, in case I’ve got it wrong
And as not to risk being caught in a lie later
When I say I love you, I’ll never say forever

God knows I love you now
And I pray I will tomorrow
But only He knows now
If I will love you tomorrow

Yeah, God knows I love you now
But only He knows
If I'll still love you tomorrow

So as a precaution
I will tread with caution
And as not to risk being caught in a lie later
When I say I love you, I’ll never say forever

At the end of the road
If we made it through thick and thin
Then you can tell me I told you so
And I'll gladly concede your win

Then you can tell me I told you so
And we can celebrate our win

J’étais un garçon triste
Avec des rêves d’artiste
Qui les a négligés
Pour une part de marché

Ma mère ne m’disait pas
Qu’j’étais l’plus beau des mômes
Mon père n’était pas là
Quand j’ai eu mon diplôme

Plutôt qu’faire des histoires
J’imprimais celles des autres
Des ballets de fils noirs
Au fil des planches couleur de chaux

Dans ma vie douce-amère
Aux espoirs illusoires
Et bonheurs éphémères
T’as ouvert un tiroir
De mille et une couleurs

Au roman noir et gris
Des histoires de ma vie
Tu t’es dictée auteure
D’un passage de bonheur
Comme les encres d’Asie
Tu as marqué ma vie
Et signé sur mon coeur
Une page en couleurs

J’étais un vieux garçon
Qui manquait d’ambition
Dont les jours s’enfilaient
Comme les perles d’un chap’let

Les filles me r’gardaient pas
Comme elles r’gardent les rockers
Les gars se passaient d’moi
Dans les soirées poker

Et dans ma chambre noire
J’dév’loppais pour les autres
En A4 blancs et noirs
Leurs pans de vie en marée haute

Dans ma vie claire-obscure
Aux contours un peu flous
Et aux contrastes trop durs
T’as taillé un bijou
De mille et une couleurs

Dans l’album noir et gris
Des clichés de ma vie
Tu as posé des fleurs
Un bouquet de douceur
Et quand, seul, je soupire
Je revois en souv’nir
Imprimée sur mon coeur
Ta photo en couleurs

J’étais un garçon triste
Avec des rêves d’artiste
Qui a vu en ton coeur
Sa palette de couleurs

Au roman noir et gris
Des histoires de ma vie
Tu t’es dictée auteure
D’un passage de bonheur
Comme les encres d’Asie
Tu as marqué ma vie
Et signé sur mon coeur
Une page en couleurs

Dans l’album noir et gris
Des clichés de ma vie
Tu as posé des fleurs
Un bouquet de douceur
Et quand, seul, je soupire
Je revois en souv’nir
Imprimée sur mon coeur
Ta photo en couleurs

Quand mes jours étaient gris
Tu as bercé mes nuits
Et fait rêver mon coeur
De mille et une couleurs

You must be God’s favourite

Wingless angel
Don’t think I can be fooled
I know God is in you
Cause God, you’re beautiful!

Ethereal
Is a word coined for you
No doubt God is in you
And God, you’re beautiful!

I close my eyes and I see you
Your soft hair, your deep, bright eyes, your striking smile
All so real, I could almost touch it
Say, is there any chance of it?

I dream at night and I’m with you
On a date, on a cruise ship, a theme park ride
On the moon, watching the sky map shift
How could I not be swayed by it?

Your secret’s been unhearted
You weren’t born on Earth

Wingless angel
Don’t think I can be fooled
I know God is in you
Cause God, you’re beautiful!

Ethereal
Is a word coined for you
No doubt God is in you
And God, you’re beautiful!

Say, you must be a musician
Because every time you step into the light
I can hear a hundred voices sing
In the most glorious symphony

Wingless angel
Don’t think I can be fooled
I know God is in you
Cause God, you’re beautiful!

Ethereal
Is a word coined for you
No doubt God is in you
And God, you’re beautiful!

Yeah, God, you're beautiful!

God, you're beautiful!..

God, You're Beautiful!

Never Say Forever

If the way that I feel
Was a decision that I made
Then I would choose right now and right here
To take you with me to the grave

But I am not naive
People have called me cynical
And since you share the air that I breathe
You know I’m always rational

Although I love you now
And I hope I will tomorrow
I can’t promise you now
That I will love you tomorrow

So as a precaution, because there's no way to be sure
I will tread with caution, speak my words with measure
And as not to risk being caught in a lie later
When I say I love you, I’ll never say forever

If I am not able
To pledge my endless faithfulness
Please don’t read it as an oracle
That I’ll go find somebody else

You know you make me blush
I just don’t want to deceive you
With bold predictions that don’t mean much
Until we can make them come true

Although I love you now
And I think I will tomorrow
I can’t promise you now
That I will love you tomorrow

So as a precaution, since feelings aren’t set in stone
I will tread with caution, in case I’ve got it wrong
And as not to risk being caught in a lie later
When I say I love you, I’ll never say forever

God knows I love you now
And I pray I will tomorrow
But only He knows now
If I will love you tomorrow

Yeah, God knows I love you now
But only He knows
If I'll still love you tomorrow

So as a precaution
I will tread with caution
And as not to risk being caught in a lie later
When I say I love you, I’ll never say forever

At the end of the road
If we made it through thick and thin
Then you can tell me I told you so
And I'll gladly concede your win

Then you can tell me I told you so
And we can celebrate our win
