Track Name: mono no aware
lorsque au soleil couchant les rivières sont roses
un conseil de goûter

when we move over,
all waves to the tomb

in my skin, lay all these ends;
slough and fade into the breeze
tick away slowly,
i am still frozen in forms to comprehend
andoule mon coeur trouble

when we move over,
all waves to the tomb

lorsque au soleil couchant les rivières sont roses
un conseil de goûter

when we move over,
all waves to the tomb
Track Name: coquette
nous venions de voir le taureau,
trois garçons, trois fillettes,
sur la pelouse il faisait beau,
et nous dansions un bolero

c’est la passione

dites-moi, voisin,
si j’ai bonne mine

your thoughts will undo me
i dream of your touch
my love, your kiss is burning
but fades in the dark

c’est la passione
Track Name: asturius
por ver si me consolaba
arrime a un pino verde

empathy, give to me power that won’t crumble
apathy’s not blind,
won’t stop this grieving

promise me, promise we,
we will survive
“When you see what this can be,
we can build a castle”
but bricks and bones made this home
and we can’t unsee it
opening our eyes doesn’t have to sting

find our earth right in front of our feet
strengthening, strengthening, collective breathing

por ver me llorar, lloraba
por ver si me consolaba
Track Name: harlot
The price of lust is stained,
question my innocence, I pray
give me just one glance,
i pay for it and bow my neck

but your hands lie open in the long fresh grass,
your finger points run through me like rosy blooms,
your eyes smile peace

your lips a swollen threat,
let’s find our way through projected consequence

ricordame

oh clasp we to our hearts,
for deathless dower
this close companioned inarticulate hour
when two-fold silence was the song -
the song of love
Track Name: madame
when my ship appears in port,
i rumble, I rumble, my insides cease
chi dirà, chi dirà, hide your heart
chi dirà, chi dirà, hide away

un bel dì, vedremo, levarsi un fil di fumo
over far, over far, the sea
butterfly, butterfly, survive me
