Track Name: Crush!
CRUSH!

(lyrics by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende
music by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende, Raphaël Léger)

D’you remember what I said?

Is it still ringing in your head?
Just tell me when it stops

When you feel the pressure drop
But don’t think I’m waiting
Cos I’m onto something better!
(Oh girl!)
I take all the blame
(C’mon girl)
I’d do it again

D’you remember what I said?

As you lie awake in bed

You run around the block

With all the tricks you had in stock
I hear my phone is buzzin’
And I know it’s you calling


(C’mon girl)
I can’t bury the hatchet

Oh I know you’re not supposed to feel ok
But you’re not helping me in any way

Oh I know this has to be an all time low
But guess what it’s your own scenario
I was a fool to let it go

I should have said no a long time ago

I remember what you said

It’s still ringing in my head

I thought it’d never stop

I’d be forever the bad cop,

So please don’t keep it coming
I just wanna get going

(C’mon girl)
I can’t bury the hatchet

Oh I know you’re not supposed to feel ok
But you’re not helping me in any way

Oh I know this has to be an all time low
But guess what it’s your own scenario
I was a fool to let it go

I should have said no a long time ago
I was a fool to let it go

I should have said no a long time ago

It’s been a long time since you crushed my soul
And I’ve been working my way out of that hole
It’s been a long time since you crushed my soul
And I’ve been working my way out of that hole

Oh I know you’re not supposed to feel ok
But you’re not helping yourself in any way
Oh I know this has to be an all time low
But guess what it’s your own scenario
I was a fool to let it go

I should have said no a long time ago
I was a fool to let it go

I should have said no a long time ago
Track Name: Love By Numbers
LOVE BY NUMBERS

(Lyrics by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende
music by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende, Raphaël Léger)

Number 3, she was just like me,

But I’ll never know why she left so suddenly
Number 4 was a total bore

She spent so many nights knocking at my door

If it’s love by numbers

I really feel less than zero

It’s a one plus one kind of rumba
It always ends below zero
I’m way too old to give it a go

I remember number 9

I think she was dating a good friend of mine
Number 7 was a match made in heaven

She wanted too much and I couldn’t get even

If it’s love by numbers

I really feel less than zero

It’s a one plus one kind of rumba
It always ends below zero
It’s way too cold for me to go

I’m way too old to give it a go

It’s far too late for me I know oh oh

If it’s love by numbers

I really feel less than zero

It’s way too cold for me to go
I’m way too old to give it a go

From day one oh I always knew

You’d be on top of my list oh my number 2
Where are you?
Track Name: Coldest Summer
COLDEST SUMMER

(lyrics by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende
music by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende, Raphaël Léger)

Take a look at my life

There’s so much that I wanted to live
I may be twisting the knife

But I feel something’s gotta give

It must have been the coldest summer

It looked to me like the loneliest winter

But I don’t care cos now I’ve found you

I will be there as long as you will want me to
(As long as you will want me to)

I’m like a broken cast

I can’t think of something else to do

I wanna get it fast

I’m gonna start something new with you

It must have been the coldest summer

It looked to me like the loneliest winter

But I don’t care cos now I’ve found you

I will be there as long as you will want me to
(As long as you will want me to)
It must have been the coldest summer

It looked to me like the loneliest winter

But I don’t care cos now I’ve found you

I will be there as long as you will want me to
(As long as you will want me to)
Track Name: T.D.K
T.D.K

(lyrics by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende
music by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende, Raphaël Léger)

I became good at lying

(You did your best to believe in me)
Or maybe when I was trying

(You kept acting like you didn’t see)

I’d love to break down and cry

But I’ve never really learnt how to
And I managed to take you on a ride
And now we’re through

I became good at lying

(You did your best to believe in me)
Or maybe when I was trying

(You kept acting like you didn’t see)
I became good at lying
(You were pretty good)

Or maybe when I was trying
(Did you try hard enough?)

Now I’ve done it so many times
It’s not like something new

Oh I wish I kept the truth inside
It’s a pain to get used to

Let me take you down

To the memory hole

It’s the start, the middle and the end
It’s everything I own

Use your imagination

I became good at lying

(You did your best to believe in me)
Or maybe when I was trying

(You kept acting like you didn’t see)
I became good at lying
(You were pretty good)

Or maybe when I was trying
(Did you try hard enough?)
Track Name: The God Of The Horizon
THE GOD OF THE HORIZON

(lyrics by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende
music by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende, Raphaël Léger)

I am here

And I feel no fear

I’m like the god of the horizon
You are the queen of the corazon
I need a view

I want a place for two
Why does it take that long
To become so headstrong

You took all my trouble

And you made it a double

We’re going straight into the wall
But I don’t seem to mind at all

You’ll soon be there
It’s gonna clear the air
It only took one song
Resonating like a gong

Just take all my trouble

And make it a double

We’re going straight into the wall
But I don’t seem to mind at all

Why don’t you take all my trouble
And make it a double

We might be going into the wall
But I don’t seem to mind at all

I’m like the god of the horizon

You are the queen of the corazon
Track Name: Missing
MISSING

(lyrics by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende
music by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende, Raphaël Léger)


Coming out of a radio you hear my voice
It’s loud and clear

And you feel it’s gonna ease your fear
It’s playing on the stereo you’ve got no choice
Coming out of a radio you hear the voice

You say you’ve got time to spare
But no, you’ve got none to share

It’s like a rodeo in a Rolls Royce
It’s big and strong

And you feel it will never go wrong

You say you’ve got time to spare
But no, you’ve got none to share

I’ve been looking for the perfect chord
Ever since I was five year old

Some say I’m not here at all
I’ve been searching for a heart of gold
Ever since I was ten years old

Some say I’m not here at all

I’m not here at all

Coming out on video people rejoice
It’s loud and clear

And you feel it’s gonna ease your fear
In mono or stereo you get the choice
Coming out of a radio you hear the voice

You say you’ve got time to spare
But no, you’ve got none to share

I’ve been looking for the perfect chord
Ever since I was five year old

Some say I’m not here at all
I’ve been searching for a heart of gold
Ever since I was ten years old

Some say I’m not here at all
I’m not here at all

I’ve been searching for a heart of gold
Ever since I was ten years old

Some say I’m not here at all
Track Name: Back 4 More
BACK 4 MORE

(lyrics by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende
music by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende, Raphaël Léger)

You’re coming back for more
They won’t open the door

You think you’re gonna make it (x3)
You think you’re gonna make this time

You dream of wilder shores
(You just want a taste of it)
About the girl next door
(You can’t get enough of it)

You think you’re gonna make it (x3)
You think you’re gonna make this time

You’ll never find a cure
There’s so much to explore

You think you’re gonna make it (x3)
You think you’re gonna make it this time

What you are and what you wanna be
Doesn’t really matter at all

You think you’re gonna make it (x3)

You think you’re gonna make it this time
Track Name: Roberr
ROBERR

(lyrics by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende
music by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende, Raphaël Léger)

Hitting Rock Bottom
I don’t wanna make it OK
I just wanna hit the big TIME
I’m gonna be a star in no time
I know what it takes
It’s gonna be fine
Just watch me go far,
It’s alright
I know what it takes
It’s gonna be mine
Track Name: Seven Seas
SEVEN SEAS 3:04

(lyrics by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende
music by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende, Raphaël Léger)


I took the road to my earliest memory
As I stood a chance to have you come with me
We’re clouds on a windy platform
We fly over seven seas

A little piece of land may appear out of the blue
A castle on the sand might steer into view
A little piece of land
It’s our chance to start anew
I’ll cross the coral strand
Settle down forever with you
(forever with you)

Halfway through our journey
You said you had different names
You’re hard to follow but I’m gonna try again
On the wings of our good vibrations
We fly over seven seas

A little piece of land may appear out of the blue
A castle on the sand might steer into view
A little piece of land
It’s our chance to start anew
I’ll cross the coral strand
Settle down forever with you
(forever with you)

It’s all clear in my head
A room with a view
It’s all clear in my head
Forever with you

A little piece of land may appear out of the blue
A castle on the sand might steer into view
A little piece of land
It’s our chance to start anew
I’ll cross the coral strand
Settle down forever with you
(forever with you)
Track Name: Solid Gold
SOLID GOLD

lyrics by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende
music by Xavier Boyer, Médéric Gontier, Sylvain Marchand, Pedro Resende, Raphaël Léger

Now that she has put your life on hold
You can’t hardly wait to see the stars
You know that you’ve found your solid gold
But she’s left you with a few more scars

And when, when things go bad
It’s like free falling into this hole
Inside your mind
And you hold on to what you had...
You go out of sight, out of reach,
Wrong or right, out of speech...

You were not obsessed with getting old
You were waiting for a new set of cards
The queen of hearts is back into the fold
The song has found its missing bar

And when, when things go bad
It’s like free falling into this hole
Inside your mind
And you hold on to what you had...
You go out of sight, out of reach,
Wrong or right, out of speech
