We could have seen so many colours
We could have stridden so many roads
But keep on breathing
And keep on living behind this door

I sometimes hear you singing at night
I sometimes hear you laughing hard
But what if I enter?
What if I take you in my arms?
What if I enter?
Am I going to collapse into time?

We could have built a world together
We could have shared some silver smiles
But what they gave us
Was only smoke and mirrors
So watch me suffer
Please watch me turn the doorknob

I spell your name, make a step
Among the ponies, among those children pals
I slowly lay down on the bed
And staring at the braid I see them surround me
White birds
And black birds
Sure he was there

The one armed man Strasbourg, France

"Il n'a pas de nom, juste un surnom, The one armed man.
Le manchot. Manchot, mais as du manche, musicien mystérieux tout droit sorti d' un film de David Lynch.

Fils spirituel de Tom Waits, il a préféré son âme à la gloire facile. Ami, si The one armed man passe par chez toi, prépare le whisky et les amplis, et laisse faire la magie."

Emmanuel Didierjean
