lyrics

I woke up into the fire
In the sweet morning light
Howling loud for my desire
To keep her forever in my arms

She said, “we could leave this city”
We could find another place
Where the stones are covered with moss
Where the girls have flowers in their hair

We’ve got nothing but the face in the ground
Nothing but the face in the ground

We got packed and greeted the past
We said “Holly take your toys”
We’re about to have a long ride
All along the fields of gold

We’ll let the sun be our guide
And the rain wash our souls
We will lay down on the grass
And let the moon be our mum

We’ve got nothing but the face in the ground
Nothing but the face in the ground

We were driving through the lands
In this sweet summer day
Holly said” please make me laugh”
And I had something in my hand
I fold some paper the bird was blue
And said “Holly that’s for you”

about

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
