    Kiss Me


    the day has begun it's last struggle
    swallowed by supersonic fuming drag
    and through the walls of our homes
    wicked shadows reach in echoing and threatening i cave in
    shake and sweat and vascillate, urge my impossible exile
    awakening to the vicious coalition of addiction
    i wish i could be the robust kind.

     

    And if i look fine and if i sound in tune
    i'm aware there's no reason to get excited
    so far, all I'm sure of is the corrosiveness of me
    why should i bother? Why should i fear
    everytme that in my dreams all the guys try to squeeze me
    so far, all I find to say is ... Why don't you...

     

    each and everyone of us hear this
    endless symphony rumble throughout the city
    in harmonic dissonance we listen to its heartbeat
    confusing, provoking, I give in, smell and taste but soon realise
    that God has forgotten something
    i Can't imagine what is not
    must be the perfect time to call up faith

    note after note my mind is orchastrating
    the bended act of a sacrifice just to get excited

     

    and if i look fine and if i sound in tune
    so far, all I find to say is why don't you
    kiss me arse!

    How Many More Times


    how many more times will they call me
    and wake me to the sound of silence
    how many more times will they keep the truth
    and bare with all my arrogance
    how many more times


    will leave the strangers from my strange land
    and quiver to the brilliance of my loneliness
    how many more time will they hold on to
    the past frozen in lifeless photographs

    how many more, many more times
    how many more, many more times

    i don'T need more undending attempt
    after too many late consents
    and i don'T need more broken promises
    no i won'T give in, i won't give in

    i don'T need to dream of dying
    or only see the sunset bleeding
    if I need a little understanding
    doesn't mean i need them to
    kill me themselves

    and as the land is going virging and
    the ice too thick to be broken
    all I really need is to keep faith in me
    and in my dream... i shouldn't be scared
    wisdom has no face

    how many more, many more times
    how many more, many more times

    I Don't Remember Your Name Only Your Smell


    we have been connected at a time
    the heat would turn into sudden pain
    one tone into one instrument of madness
    and that's when i came to play in your town


    you were there watching with those always welcoming us all
    but i, devoured by passion, watched your every move
    met your smile then spoke to your deep persian eyes
    talked about works of art and natural beauty but

     

    i don't remember your name
    Only your smell
    i don't remember your stretch
    Only your smell
    i don't remember wich way
    Only your smell
    Your name
    Your smell

     

    could you habe been the only one
    the only one that made me crawl
    and could it be that i want you now
    and bring back the treasure of your unique flavor!

     

    through the coldest wind we walked
    once then drove around another time
    nearby the frozen river
    you know its name, " ciboire, la rivière chaudière, mon frère"

     

    untill came dawn, i wore nothing but the stars on my skin
    was grace shook in disgrace, or did i talked too much?

     

    i don't remember your name
    Only your smell
    i don't remember your stretch
    Only your smell
    i don't remember wich way
    Only your smell
    Your name
    Your smell

     

    could you have been the only one
    the only one that made me crawl
    could it be that i want you now
    and bring back the treasure of your unique flavor!

     

    solo

     

    and bring back the treasure of your unique flavour
    not live forever the day after... In the absolute, past and future...
    bring back the treasure of your unique flavour !

    Haunting You

    I believe that I through silver plains smelled the smell of your speech come through my skin...
    Hoping for a sign I walked through silver rain to find the key to cross an ocean of ageing fantasies.
    God forbid if one day I run in you and find a way to make this dream come through...
    Oh sometimes I can dance and sometimes I can sing thinking about you ...

     

    You don't know me and you don't know why your heart has been trying to see
    The mysteries and the legacy the wind whispers across the sea

     

    I believe that I through silver grace smelled the smell of fate come through my skin ...
    Dreaming on and on always I see your face and look for the key to cross this ocean of ancient history.
    God forbid if one day I run in you and find a way to prove this vision's true
    Oh sometimes I can't dance and sometimes I can't sing thinking about you...

     

    You don't know me and you don't know why, your heart has been trying to see
    The mysteries and the legacy the wind whispers across the sea...

    Little Girl


    Little girl, watch your step
    Little girl, take my hand
    Follow the feelings
    Of the woman and the friend next to you
    Yes we can groove along
    We can go where the river meets with the sky
    Little girl, make your smile shine on me

    (Don’t be at odds with everything
    Beat the mascarade)

    Let me in, please let me in
    Share with me your identity… somehow

    Here is my hand, my distress
    Follow the feeling
    Have all you can from my caress
    Please don’t carry the pain infinitely still
    You will come to understand
    Why I love you and I love the whole world

    (Don’t be at odds with everything
    Breathe Little girl)

    Let me in please, let me in
    Share with me your infinity
    Let me in please, let me in

    In the Middle of the Ocean

    in the middle of the ocean somewhere near the sky... i look up and I look down
    in the middle of nowhere... indefinitely i meet the rudeness of me...
    above the one world we share... somewhere between day and night... i'm going further than despair... my rhythm change...

    while resolutions hang... and the distance sustains... i guess I become alive...

    i look up and I look down... in the middle of my life... indefinitely i see the real beginning of me...
    beyond the questions we share... somewhere between first and last... i'm racing up with the winds... time modulates...


    while resolutions hang... and the distance sustains ... i guess I become alive ...

    if I had the gift to paint with words all the good and the great... all the wrong and the bad, the paper would weaken and burn...
    under the pressure... pressure ... pressure...


    While resolutions hang... and the distance sustain...
    I guess I become alive... thirty five thousand feet in the air !

    Rage


    There's nothing you can do
    To make me change my mind
    I'm just a crazy fool
    Who's got no place to hide
    My nature is of fire
    My temper's border line
    So don'T try to seduce me
    You could not endure me

    I guess love is the language of my rage
    Dressed too soon for a requiem
    As time, I guess, captures my loneliness
    Indifference has become my different rage

    Maybe nothing is real
    Maybe time is a feeling
    But I know what I need
    I know what I crave for
    Authoritarians all fear
    The shadow of my thoughts for real

    II guess love is the language of my rage
    Dressed too soon for a requiem
    As time, I guess, captures my loneliness
    Indifference has become my different rage

    ( Different rage ) Different rage ( Different rage )
    As time, I guess, captures my loneliness
    Indifference has become my different rage

    And I'm trapped in love that I cannot share
    Trapped in shoes you would not want to wear
    Trapped in flesh, trapped in days,
    And I need a break, need a break
    Trapped in you, I refuse to rejoyce' cause of you
    or forget about you
    I guess love is the language of our rage
    ( Forget about you)
    Dressed too soon for a requiem
    ( Forget about you)
    As time I guess captures  ( About you )
    Our ( About you ) Loneliness ( About you )
    Indifference has become our different rage....

    Reverse Conciousness


    Ah ha...

    Forget about time... reverse consciousness
    Forget about me...  and a  conspiracy

     

    You surf  the years passing by
    Open the doors to sanitize your mind
    You shut the hidden wounds by racing
    The dirt until your old place shines
    You rise in existence while thunder
    Keeps roaring over my bed

    He gets its hands on me just to wear me out
    While you turn your head just to pray outloud
    It strikes again on me but you know how to

     

    Forget about time... reverse conciousness
    Forget about me .... any conspiracy Forget about  pride... we all live or die

     

    Always control always more and more
    You want, you have always in the back 
    The whole neighborhood  and more sit tight
    Untill the end of the night
    He gets his hands on me just to remind me
    While you turn your head just to pray outloud
    He strikes again on me but you know how to

     

    Forget about time - reverse consiousness
    Forget about me any conspiracy
    Forget about pride we all live or die
    Forget about  me .... I always exist

    Memories


    it's one thing to get high,
    but to put-up with cruel lies
    while i try to reach for your sky
    doesn't make me wanna fly
    your ego deprives you from sanity
    and puts me back down underground
    you disagree but I dream
    I don't even wanna keep , keep the

     

    memories... no honor holds you to me babe
    memories... you went too far today

    don't sing me a lullaby
    just try to wave me good-bye
    and find the one true light
    the blaze of noon or twilight !
    when your unblinking eyes so envious
    get down on me I just can't feel free
    you disbelieve but I don't wish to mind
    I don't even wanna keep, keep the

     

    memories... no honor holds you to me babe
    memories ... you went too far today
    memories... no honor holds you to me babe
    memories... and nothing's gonna change my mind
    I'm holding on

     

    don't even wanna keep the
    memories
    no honor holds you to me babe
    memories
    you went to far today
    memories
    no honor holds you to me babe
    memories
    and nothing's gonna change my mind
    memories
    no honor holds you to me babememories
    and nothing's gonna change my mind
    memories
    no honor holds you to me babe
    you went too far today

    The Call of the Night

    I have something to say... look out... I have something burning... viciously in doubts...


    I've heard whispers as I never heard before coming out the graves so glorious and frail... but I was so scared that I couldn't understand
    that of my own language all along I've been a slave... love ... grim chords of love freed your essence into mine... and now like a lone predator, I heed the call of the night...


    But I swear its not too late... I can govern on my every want... I swear... it's not too late... I swear ...

     

    From left you passed to the right then moved on but suddenly what you've enjoyed transmuted... as abundance remains what's appealing to you I come to understand that I should now embrace change... won't look when your life will run into the next one...
    I hang on to mine from habit I believe that something can shift the scene in time but still I greed the call of the night ... Love... grim chords of love freed your essence into mine... and now like a lone predator I heed the call of the night


    But I swear its not too late... I can govern on my every want... I swear... it's not too late... I swear ...

     

    Here comes the beauty of romance, mon cher, and I'm falling, I'm falling for it...
    I can see what I've become, I own the love that can destroy...
    Forever burning viciously in doubts I can't tell the world I'm there and I ache...

     

    I swear it's not too late... I swear it's not just fate... I swear it's not too late... or just fate or too late... I swear, I swear, I swear

    Nostalgie


    Si j'avais compris plus tôt, beaucoup plus tôt
    Jamais je serais resté troublée devant l'inévitable
    Et si se prolonge ma nostalgie c'est que ma tête
    Programme à résolution séquentielle
    Ne peut s'empêcher d'être trouble face à la route qui me poursuit

     

    Ma vie insolite dévale une pente obscure
    En attendant qu'elle s'éteigne
    J'aimerais ne pas être si terne
    Plus j'ai de peurs et plus j'ai de mals
    Je meurs dans tout ce que j'espère.

     

    Le privilège de voir le temps qui se dérobe
    Je ne le comprends pas quand je pense à la catastrophe
    Devant mon miroir je fais face à l'évidence
    Ma réalité change à chaque instant qui s'endort

     

    Ma vie insolite dévale une pente obscure
    En attendant qu'elle s'éteigne
    J'aimerais ne pas être si terne
    Mais quand je ferme les yeux
    L'humiliation me ravage
    Plus j'ai de peurs et plus j'ai de mals
    Je meurs dans tout ce que j'espère

     

    En attendant que j'en revienne
    Je pleure de porter mes chaînes
    Mon regard brille, mon regard brille sur ma misère
    Ma vie insolite dévale une pente obscure
    et en attendant qu'elle s'éteigne
    J'aimerais ne pas être si terne
    Mais quand je ferme les yeux
    L'humiliation me ravage
    Plus j'ai de peurs et plus j'ai de mals
    Je meurs dans tout ce que j'espère


Sense of Doubt (Remastered)

Released 2016
Released 2016
Composed in the late 80s and early 90s, these songs caught the attention of many. A singular sound emerging from nothing else than the blend of two great female musicians: a Folk Rock singer and a New Wave guitar player.
NOTES
These DEMO songs are a must in your collection. Their the upshot of a musical journey between two passionate composers that knew how to rock the creative process and catch the attention of many. Among them, the well known Canadian artist, Jane Mcgarrigle. Amazingly the fresh and bright guitar tracks and the arrangements of Marie Martine Bédard put the spotlight on the solid and attractive melody lines of the singer Elana Harte.

NOTES
A note from the artist :

Years ago I looked like someone able to weather any storm, even the attack I lived through on Saint-Denis Street. As expected, I bravely moved forward in strength, like many victims. I needed to be successful at it. I kept my demons out of reach, a battle that would never really end.

My physical pain was real and my soul silenced for having lived through a sudden, arbitrary, unpredictable event. …
