Ballaké Sissoko & Vincent Segal Lyrics


I'm hearing images, I'm seeing songs
No poet has ever painted
Voices call out to me, straight to my heart
So strange yet we're so well acquainted
I let the music speak, with no restraints
I let my feelings take over
Carry my soul away into the world
Where beauty meets the darkness of the day
Where my mind is like an open window
Where the high and healing winds blow
From my shallow sleep the sounds awake me
I let them take me
(Let them wake me, let them now, let them take me)
Let it be a joke
Let it be a smile
Let it be a farce, if it makes me laugh for a little while
Let it be a tear
Let it be a sigh
Coming from a heart, speaking to a heart, let it be a cry
Some streets are emptiness, dry leaves of autumn
Rustling down an old Alley
And in the dead of night, I find myself
A blind man in some ancient valley
I let the music speak, leading me gently
Urging me like a lover
Leading me all the way into a place
Where beauty will defeat the darkest day
Where I'm one with every grand illusion
No disturbance, no intrusion
Where I let the wistful sounds seduce me
I let them use me
(All illusion, no disturbance, no intrusion)
Let it be a joke
Let it be a smile
Let it be a farce, if it makes me laugh for a little while
Let it be a tear
Let it be a sigh
Coming from a heart, speaking to a heart, let it be a cry
Let it be a tear
Let it be a sigh
Coming from a heart, speaking to a heart, let it be a cry
Let it be the joy of each new sunrise
Or the moment when a day dies
I surrender without reservation
No explanations
No questions why
I take it to me and let it flow through me
Yes, I let the music speak
I let the music speak

Je suis bourré et je sais que vous ne lirez pas ce message. Mais actuellement je suis à Reykjavik, et j'écoute cette chanson et je trouve ça fabuleux. Cette kora enchanteresse vos regards sur cette video en disent beaucoup sur la musique que vous faites. Une musique puissante, forte, gracieuse, simple dans un sens. Je pars dans un délire en écrivant cela mais je crois que vous avez écrit la musique de ma naissance, une sorte de racine, avec une lumière bleuté. Ces cordes frottées et ce violoncelle. Quelle beau mélange. Vous avez crée les ingrédients parfaits pour nous donner la musique. Quelque chose qui traverse le coeur, qui nous raconte en l'occurrence une histoire. J'ai l'impression de ne pas être bourré au vue de ce que j'écris mais sans doute que ça se voit. En tout cas votre musique me touche beaucoup. Allez bisou.

Avec du Brennivin et de l'Opal, et sans doute pas mal de pintes. La preuve c'est que je me souvenais même pas d'avoir écrit ce message ahah !

Avec quoi avez vous réussi à vous bourrer en Islande ? ;-)

@dfperrault - Yes, I was there too, in the second row! I only now just found this on youtube. What an unforgettable performance, but this video does it so much justice (when connected to the serious sound system!) We were lucky to have been there in front of these two souls. Peace.
