From Brittany with love

Reprise

Des balades en mer
Vite! Le soleil est éphémère
Des randonnées dans la fôret
Des villages enchantées
Des églises séculaires
Des hommes révolutionnaires.

Guingamp III

Step by step
Brick after brick
Stone by stone
Time after time
Me after you
Little by little
You after me
Day after day
Again and again.

Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that’s easy. What’s hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.

Charles Mingus

Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things.

Ray Bradbury

Guingamp II

Explorador
De mares e oceanos
Navegante
De rios e afluentes
Aventureiro
Por planícies e montanhas
Descobridor
De caminhos nunca antes percorridos
Turista acidental.

A hint of Ireland

Reprise

Am I stil in Brittany?
As I go down the street
It looks like Ireland to me
Good old memories
Dancing in my mind
Green valleys
Sheperd hills
Stone houses
With colourful eyes
Mystic fog and humid air
Redhead children playing outside
And sunny days sometimes
The pub around the corner
Is missing from the pictures
Was I dreaming?
Oh, so it is France indeed
I hoped it was Ireland instead
I shall drink a bitter cider
Wishing it was a Guinness pint.

Saumur

Ville magique bercée par la Loire
Protegée par le château en haut de la coline
Rien nous échappe, on veut tout voir
Au pas, au trot, au galop
Les chevaux sont libres
De chasser leur destin
Les humans eux, sont plus lâches
Et se contentent d’un bon verre de vin.

Time is rushing me

I remember so well my childhood
Good old times!
Now my children are the ones that shrive me
I remember when life was made of endless Summer days
Although I’ve always preferred Autumn evenings
I remember playing with my brother and sisters
Monopoly would last all night long
It’s still the case
Certain things will never change
I remember when my skin was firm and my body flexible
My smile is not gone but my face is slightly wrinkled
And my brown hair is smoothly turning to gray
Here and there
I don’t mind aging
I wouldn’t change 45 for 22
Every birthday should be celebrated
Because we are alive
I just feel that time keeps rushing me
And there’s nothing I can do to slow it down.

Reprise

Promenade en famille
La Rance nous accompagne
Tout au long du chemin
Les oiseaux chuchotent
Et les fleurs se balancent doucement
Les pierres des maisons
Au bord de la rivière
Racontent des histoires séculaires
Elles sont notre havre de paix
Notre protection
Mais nous sommes trop pressés
C’est dommage…
Pas de temps pour les écouter
Nous n’avons toujours pas compris
Que la vie ne tient qu’à un fil.
