lyrics

How do you sleep, keeping the thoughts that you keep?
And how do you stand, when you’ve two feet off the ground?
How can you see, when you never look at me?
And how can you grin, when you’ve no good thoughts…

Within you you’re guarding a secret you cannot expose,
Though you know that you want to
And hiding it deeply you’re thinking that nobody knows
But I do.

What would you say, if I told you this one day?
And what would you do, if I told you I’m standing by you?
What can it be, that is holding you back from me?
And what would I see, if I looked deep inside…

Within you you’re guarding a secret you cannot expose,
Though you know that you want to
And hiding it deeply you’re thinking that nobody knows
But I do.

Tu penses être une étoile tombée du ciel
Ne me prive pas de cette lumière

Why can’t you speak, to me telling the thoughts that you keep?
And why does it seem, that you’re living some kind of bad dream?
Why don’t you take, a hold of the love that’s at stake?
And why must I stay, outside when I should be…

Within you you’re guarding a secret you cannot expose,
Though you know that you want to
And hiding it deeply you’re thinking that nobody knows
But I do.

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
