Martin Zarzar – Petite Fleur

Petite Fleur

“I have hidden
Better than anywhere else
In the garden of my heart
A little flower

This flower
Prettier than a bouquet
It secretly keeps
All my childish dreams
And the love of my parents
And all these clear mornings
Made of happy distant memories

When life
At times betrays me
You remain my happiness
Little flower

If I could
Recall my twenties for a moment
To breath
This perfume that I loved so much

In my heart
You will always bloom
In the grand garden of love
Little flower

Take this gift
That I always kept
Even when I was twenty
I have never given it away

Don’t be afraid
Plucked from the bottom of one’s heart
A little flower
Never dies”

Here’s a more original style version, a wonderful old Mouloudji chanson version & quiet sad but beautiful James Dean homage … enjoy!

Patrick Watson – Blackwind

“Don’t try too hard to catch the winds,
Where they are going and where they have been,
Don’t try to outrun what the winds are showin’,
Just gotta give in to where they are blowin’,
Cause who are we?
Who are we without the ones we love?
All alone.

Sometimes it blows you down,
And weathers your face and leaves us no trace,
And you find yourself far from home.
Well it’s better to move than it stands to when you don’t know
While the rooftops will open the air
For the answer to our lives is blowin’,
Around and flying out of control.

Alot of things blowin’ us up above the ground
Everybody hold on to the ones that you love
Blackwind’s blowing in sight of everyday,
Don’t waste your time with lonely yesterdays.
Everybody smile while the wind blows us around
Can’t control the weather just gotta be what you need,
Higher in the air everybody give in to the storm
Don’t try to hide.
To get yourself away from where we are going.
Everybody just climb up today and we’ll go away.”

Here is a nice live version :)
