Seabird 03:41
There's a road I know I must go Even though I tell myself That road is closed Listen lonely seabird You've been away from land too long Aw, too long I don't listen to the news no more Like an unwound clock, You just don't seem to care This world isn't big enough To keep me away from you Aw, from you Seabird, seabird Fly home Seabird, seabird Fly home Like a lonely seabird You've been away from land too long Aw, too long Suddenly you're with me I turn and you're not there Like a ghost, you haunt me You find warmth in a 1-night bed Sunsets, full moons Don't turn you on Like an untied dog You just had to run Like a lonely seabird You've been away from land too long Oh, no, too long Seabird, seabird Fly home Seabird, seabird Fly home (repeat)

Lyrics Debout devant ses illusions Une femme que plus rien ne dérange Détenue de son abandon Son ennui lui donne le change Que retient elle de sa vie Qu'elle pourrait revoir en peinture Dans un joli cadre verni En évidence sur un mur Un mariage en Technicolor Un couple dans les tons pastels Assez d'argent sans trop d'efforts Pour deux trois folies mensuelles Elle a rêvé comme tout le monde Qu'elle tutoierait quelques vedettes Mais ses rêves en elle se fondent Maint’nant son espoir serait d'être Juste quelqu'un de bien Quelqu'un de bien Le cœur à portée de main Juste quelqu'un de bien Sans grand destin Une amie à qui l'on tient Juste quelqu'un de bien Quelqu'un de bien Il m'arrive aussi de ces heures Où ma vie se penche sur le vide Coupés tous les bruits du moteur Au-dessus de terres arides Je plane à l'aube d'un malaise Comme un soleil qui veut du mal Aucune réponse n'apaise Mes questions à la verticale J'dis bonjour à la boulangère Je tiens la porte à la vieille dame Des fleurs pour la fête des mères Et ce week-end à Amsterdam Pour que tu m'aimes encore un peu Quand je n'attends que du mépris A l'heure où s'enfuit le Bon Dieu Qui pourrait me dire si je suis Juste quelqu'un de bien Quelqu'un de bien Le cœur à portée de main Juste quelqu'un de bien Sans grand destin Une amie à qui l'on tient Juste quelqu'un de bien Quelqu'un de bien J'aime à penser que tous les hommes S'arrêtent parfois de poursuivre L'ambition de marcher sur Rome Et connaissent la peur de vivre Sur le bas-côté de la route Sur la bande d'arrêt d'urgence Comme des gens qui parlent et qui doutent D'être au-delà des apparences Juste quelqu'un de bien Quelqu'un de bien Le cœur à portée de main Juste quelqu'un de bien Sans grand destin Une amie à qui l'on tient Juste quelqu'un de bien Quelqu'un de bien

You talk like Marlene Dietrich And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire Your clothes are all made by Balmain And there's diamonds and pearls in your hair, yes, there are You live in a fancy apartment Off the Boulevard St. Michel Where you keep your Rolling Stones records And a friend of Sacha Distel, yes, you do But where do you go to, my lovely When you're alone in your bed? Tell me the thoughts that surround you I want to look inside your head, yes, I do I've seen all your qualifications You got from the Sorbonne And the painting you stole from Picasso Your loveliness goes on and on, yes, it does When you go on your summer vacation You go to Juan-les-Pins With your carefully designed topless swimsuit You get an even suntan on your back, and on your legs And when the snow falls you're found in St. Moritz With the others of the jet set And you sip your Napoleon brandy But you never get your lips wet, no, you don't But where do you go to, my lovely When you're alone in your bed? Won't you tell me the thoughts that surround you? I want to look inside your head, yes, I do Your name is heard in high places You know the Aga Khan He sent you a race horse for Christmas And you keep it just for fun, for a laugh, ha-ha-ha-ha They say that when you get married It'll be to a millionaire But they don't realize where you came from And I wonder if they really care, or give a damn I know where you go to, my lovely When you're alone in your bed I know the thoughts that surround you 'Cause I can look inside your head

Cracks In the Ceiling Align I connect all the shapes while you play like a tape in my mind Did you mean the things that you said have you already told them to somebody else instead Finally I'm falling and the thoughts fade away but every other night will go the same I cant believe I've Fallin' You want me 10 times a day tell me who are you trying to madly love away? and where do we go from here you say don't let go and then you disappear finally I'm falling and the thoughts fade away but every other night will go the same I can't believe I've fallin' Darling, where's the line? Whats yours? Whats mine? I can't decide.. I should leave I'll probably stay what feels dark in the nights often easier come the day Tomorrow I might not agree first I know how I feel then it stops making sense to me Finally the morning comes and the thoughts fade away, but every other

about

Coquette is an exploration of the elusive balance artists must find between their work, mental health, and the unromantic nuts-and-bolts duties of life. Containing both originals and covers, it touches on both Hailey’s love of the darker side of jazz, accents of dreamy folk-pop, while maintaining her evocative playful story-telling, and introducing her audience to a new internal creative strength and maturity.

A bit of you's the only drug I must abuse
A bit of you is the only substance I cannot refuse
When I walk on spring
Beneath the stink a bit of you is all I smell
Upon the shelf a bit of you I ask "They sell?"
When I walk on spring
But there ain't no style
No there ain't no style
Well there ain't no style
And in fact there is just one other problem
You live up in Harlem
Of course I had no knowledge of this at the time
That came après July on the Upper West Side
Waiting for the fall
When from the Battery on up to your front door
From mother ship the rocket launching twister whores
Would blow up it all
'Cause there ain't no style
No there ain't no style
Well there ain't no style
And in fact there is just one other problem
I would have spared Harlem
Affections sent straight to Chekhov
Say you need me
Don't you need me
Wait I thought we were on Broadway
No, my daddy said so
"Still outside of Moscow"
Affections sent straight to Chekhov
Say you need me
Don't you need me
Wait I thought we were on Broadway
No, my daddy said so
"Still outside of Moscow"
And so the days creep up to my big final show
And not a word from you the hours I must blow
So I walk and see
Upon the streets a faded island press on eyes
A big old pool of yous, zillions I realize
And just one of me
But there ain't no style
No there ain't no style
Well there ain't no style
And in fact there is just one other problem
You've infected Harlem
Guess I won't be waiting several hours
Before nightfall for that A train
Just the hiss of the dues band play
