Jil Is Lucky – Album

Winter is over

We’ve seen storms, and hurricanes too
But we’ve been through
Hidden paths and buried towns
Still waiting for december to be gone
Now that winter is over
Now that our parents are older
Let's live our life
Let's live our life

J.E.S.U.S. said

J.E.S.U.S said “Love the one who’s next to you, then the one who’s next to you will love you too”
Then J.E.S.U.S said “Love your neighbours” but he didn’t know who’d be my neighbours

He didn’t specify
Oooh / Oooh / Oooh
No he didn’t specify
Oooh / Oooh / Oooh

J.E.S.U.S said that "It can be easy to walk on water"
But even on the ground I feel myself trapped like a fly in a glass of water
J.E.S.U.S multiplied breads for all his brothers but he forgot to give the recipe and let the world in a complete misery

He didn’t specify
Oooh / Oooh / Oooh
He didn’t specify
Oooh / Oooh / Oooh
He didn’t specify

J.E.S.U.S said “Love the one who’s next to you, then the one who’s next to you will love you too”
Then J.E.S.U.S said “Love your neighbours” but he didn’t know who’d be my neighbours

He didn’t specify
Oooh / Oooh / Oooh
No He didn’t specify
Oooh / Oooh / Oooh

When I'm alone

Tell me why when I’m alone
My room looks bigger than it is
My left hand is stuck on the phone
The other one scratches my knees
I press my face against the window
And my ears against the wall
I hear the rain and see the snow
I’m not bored, not at all
When I’m alone
When I’m alone
Across the country my baby knows there’s something wrong
When I’m alone
When I’m alone
She calls me on the phone

She plays the trumpet Well I just miss her so much
That I could write an entire book
So I wrote down this song
So that she can have a look
At me on my own, quietly growing old
My eyes staring at the shirt
The one I didn’t fold
When I’m alone
When I’m alone
Across the country my baby knows there’s something wrong
When I’m alone
When I’m alone
She calls me on the phone
And says
"Jil, you seem pretty tired
You seem to be worried
‘cause I am not behind you"
She says
"Jil, go and tidy up your room ‘cause I am coming soon"
Yeah Yeah Yeah

Judah Loew’s mistake

When the sun rose up today and banish shadows out of town
A little boy was found, lying on the ground
No one knew his name, you know what it means
It means we will be chased so let’s wake the clay machines
Mothers close your doors and fold your babies' arms
Hide your babies' bed, please close your babies' eyes

After all it must be told

Our land's being attacked we must have something to protect
Ourselves against the heads of state
Who still deny deny deny
They can cross the wall and fight the power of the men
But before long, at the break of dawn, the golem will be strong

We turned around around around all night long
Dancing, shouting antic prayers not to do it wrong
We wrote the name of God on the forehead of the beast
I asked him to stand up, to walk and to resist

After all, it must be told

Our land's being attacked we must have something to protect
Ourselves against the heads of state
Who still deny deny deny
They can cross the wall and fight the power of the men
But before long, at the break of dawn, the golem will be strong

Unfortunately he did more than chase them out of town
He first crossed the line and he killed them one by one
When he returned I had to erase the "aleph"
On the forehead of the beast now the only word you can read is "death"

Our land's being attacked we must have something to protect
Ourselves against the heads of state
Who still deny deny deny
They can cross the wall and fight the power of the men
But before long, at the break of dawn, the golem will be strong

I may be late

I promise to do my best to arrive on time
For our first date, our first kiss, our first night
I may be late sometimes

Don’t worry if I’m quiet, if I don’t say word,
I can be the rudest guy in the world
I may be late sometimes

Well my head is a trashcan, and I forget everything
My mind isn't clean, and my brain is a washing machine

Now I love you more than you hated me,
And I’ll try to show you how sweet I can be
I may be late sometimes / I can be sweet

Now one thing is for sure
I’ll try to be there the day you will marry me
I may be late sometimes / I'll try

But my head is a trashcan, and I forget everything
My mind isn't clean, and my brain is a washing machine

The Wanderer

There are flowers in my room
And they don’t need a job
They just need time
To grow and die
And the lovers on their cloud
don’t give a shit about the money
They're here to try
To stay side by side
But it’s so hard

'Cause the morning always comes to kill the dream
You had the night before

Well I’m dragging myself all along the pavement
Up in the sky, there’s someone behind
And he’s guiding my steps
Up and down the life stairs
Helps me thereby leaving again

And I’m walking all damned day
Day after day
But it’s okay
I’m on my way
Wandering again from the West to the East
I try to resist
But it’s so hard not to fall

'Cause the morning always comes to kill the dream
You had the night before

Well I’m dragging myself all along the pavement
Up in the sky, there’s someone behind
And he’s guiding my steps
Up and down the life stairs
Helps me thereby leaving again

Without you

This morning I took a sheet of paper and a magic pen
To draw a big white sun and a little man
And he's smiling as the sun shines in a sky deep and blue
What would he do without you ?

And then well I wanted to draw something nicer
I bought some guitar strings and a white computer
Then I wrote down a little poem and composed something new
What could I record without you

Then I was really hungry and I needed something to eat
And I ordered my favourite dish on my favourite seat
But I can not swallow anything if you're not eating too
I could be a bit thinner without you

But in a week you will be gone and that's a disaster
My belly is already empty and my eyes are on fire
And a big black beard is growing up to my crazy hairdo
Maybe I should write folk songs without you

Don't work

You don't have to work that hard
You don't have to love the money
To live for the money and work that hard

Be content with flowers blooming
And children growing
And don’t work that hard
Just because your time is running
Now you're missing all

Please don't let the seasons go away
Try to make them stay
Five weeks in a year
It's like one second in a day
Please don't work that way

Please don't work so hard
Just because the time is running
Now you're missing all
Please don't let the seasons go away
Try to make them stay
Five weeks in a year
It's like one second in a day
So please don't work

Supernovas

I always wanted to become a good good boy
Now I know I am not
They say "Boy you're living on the moon"
But I swear I am not

If I could I surely would take a plane
And watch the world from the bright side, from the good side
And make an air pocket in my cloudy mind
Where burning supernovas seem like dying candle lights

I always wanted to become a real real man
Now I know I know I know I am not
The say "Boy you should try to keep your feet down on the ground"
But I swear I can not

If I could I surely would take a plane
And watch the world from the bright side, from the good side
And make an air pocket in my cloudy mind
Where burning supernovas seem like dying candle lights

I always wanted to become a good good boy
Now I know I am not

Hovering machine

Sometimes I want to show you what's in the attic
Of our relationship
Time has made a picture turn in yellow
And I want you to know

You want to know where I have been
You want to know what I have seen
While my hovering machine
Was flying me down
I wonder if you will ever know

Back to the times when we used to try
It turned it all to this
Back on the pillow where we used to lie
You want to know

You want to know where I have been
You want to know what I have seen
While my hovering machine
Was flying me down
I wonder if you will ever know
