about

An original song by Noëlle Rollings. All rights reserved.

lyrics

Je, tu, il, elle, nous, vous, ils, elles.
Sous une lumière blafarde
Court, danse et se tord sans raison
La Vie, impudente et criarde.
Aussi, sitôt qu'à l'horizon
La nuit voluptueuse monte,
Apaisant tout, même la faim,
Effaçant tout, même la honte,
Le Poète se dit: “Enfin!”
Mon esprit, comme mes vertèbres,
Invoque ardemment le repos;
Le coeur plein de songes funèbres,
Je vais me coucher sur le dos
Et me rouler dans vos rideaux,
Ô rafraîchissantes ténèbres!
— Charles Baudelaire
(J’ai aimé, tu as aimé, il a aimé, elle a aimé, nous avons aimé, vous avez aimé, ils ont aimé, elles ont aimé)

I’m on my French Exchange,
The teacher’s left, there’s no one to explain
But I’ll get by, I always do,
Examining the difference between the vous et tu.

Je, tu, il, elle, nous, vous, ils, elles.

I’m on my French Exchange,
The teacher’s left, there’s no one to explain
But I’ll get by, I always do,
Examining the difference between the vous et tu.

about

Noëlle et les Papillons Exeter, UK

An adventurous soul, I re-work my observations and experiences into songs and soundscapes. After performing on Jazz circuits abroad and at home for many years, I have finally created my first original body of music, French Exchange.

This debut album brings together talented friends and musicians; les Papillons and explores my musical journey via recent travels. Thanks & enjoy, Noëlle Rollings
