A LITTLE TALK WITH THEE

2003

Lord I'm a sinner, I can pray
Sure I can do it night and day
A little talk with thee
Jesus, grant it to me

I love to shout, I love to sing
I love to praise my precious king
A little talk with thee
Jesus, grant it to me

Up in Glory Land, we'll live eternally
The Saints on ev'ry hand are shouting victory

Thou did tell me once before
To go in peace and sin no more
A little talk with thee
Jesus, grant it to me

BABY, I WANT YOU SO BAD
Marty Vickers / Matthieu Boré ©1997

My girl, cool and sexy, she sure drives me crazy
Answers to the little name of Daisy
Spends her days in bed, she's so damned lazy
Who cares if I give her all my money
Baby, I want you so bad

I've known lots of chicks with loads of education
Practised in the art of captivation
But they couldn't make the right equation
Now I got a girl with good vibrations
Baby, I want you so bad

Yesterday my middle name was trouble
Just a kid out acting like a fool
Girls would always quit me on the double
Your love's got me playing by the rules

They said we would never work it out together
Break apart if there was stormy weather
It could be they're jealous of our treasure
We're in heaven making love at leisure
Baby, I want you so bad

BYE BABY BYE-BYE
Suzie Blackstone / Matthieu Boré ©2001

There's only sand as far as eyes can see, I'm wasting my life, I wanna break free
I kwow each word you're gonna say, it breaks my heart but I'm on my way

I want to get over the hills, see what's hidden right behind
I can hear the call of the wind, it blows from the other side
The time has come when I must go, bye, baby, bye-bye
You're not alone, he loves you so, bye, baby, bye-bye

I dreamed we were crossing the line, I had wings and I could fly
Do you think that I was so blind I would never see your crime
The time has come when I must go, bye, baby, bye-bye
You're not alone, you love him so, bye, baby, bye-bye

BY MY SIDE
Matthieu Boré ©1996

I wanna sing for you my love
It feels like you are by my side
I call your name out to the never land
Can you hear my cry?

Kept company by my loneliness
I really need you by my side
My voice will go through all the barricades
Please hear my cry

You're a long way from me
Will my song surmount the seas?
When I see you in my dreams
There you are next to me

I promise you happiness
Always by my side
There won't be no more lonely nights
For you and I

DON'T TRY TO SEE ME AGAIN
Suzie Blackstone / Matthieu Boré ©1995

If I was standing over you, baby
Would you confess you were cold and gloomy?
Gave you my heart then what more could I do
You've gone too far and now we're through

Don't try to see me again, I'm gonna make a new start
Don't try to see me again, I'll free my broken heart

You say you love me, you say you're sorry
No need to cry, the game is over, baby
You had my life but you wanted my soul
You've gone too far now you're alone

Don't try to see me again, I'm gonna make a new start
Don't try to see me again, I'll free my broken heart

DOWN IN OLD SHANGHAI
Suzie Blackstone / Matthieu Boré ©1995

I met a girl on a saturday night at the Monkey Bar, down in Old Shanghai
Sailor on leave for a couple of days
Lonesome stranger in town, I walked into the first bar that I found

She seemed like an angel lost in that joint, didn't have wings, just a Chinese dress on
With a terrifying dragon sewn on the back
When I looked into its eyes, it came alive, breathing fire

There was smoke everywhere, was I in heaven or hell?
Mystifying music started to play

The clock is striking quarter to ten, I'm waking up in an opium den
I stand up and stagger out, still stoned
Then my heart skips a beat, my angel's walking down the street

She turned and gave me a sign, I felt her lips kissing mine
And everything faded away

I met a girl on a saturday night at the Monkey Bar, down in Old Shanghai
Sailor on leave for a couple of days
Lonesome stranger in town, I walked into the first bar that I found

I DO THE BEST I CAN
Suzie Blackstone / Matthieu Boré ©1996

Girl, did I ever treat you bad, did I hurt you and make you sad?
Don't you know that I'm a loving man, I do the best I can
You got your faults and I got mine but as we move on down the line
I know things will work out fine, we do the best we can

Ain't got no money to buy you cashmere gloves
Darling, I can't give you anything but love
No, I will never, never let you down
You don't have to worry, I'll always be around

Mother, did I ask for my dad when he left us all high and dry?
I said "Now, for me, you are the only one, we do the best we can"
Through the years we held on tight, even in the darkest nights
But today we're walking in the light, we do the best we can

Ain't got no money to buy you cashmere gloves
Darling, I can't give you anything but love
No, I will never, never let you down
You don't have to worry, I'll always be around

I DON'T DENY IT
Matthieu Boré ©2003

It's true that sometimes
I stay on my own
Well, I don't deny it
But I look for some peace and quiet

It's true that sometimes
I turn in on myself
Well, I don't deny it
But I need to find who I am

Time passes by and I realize
That things are not what they seem to be

It's true that sometimes
I give no reply
Well, I don't deny it
But I have to think twice before

MY LITTLE CHILD
Matthieu Boré ©2007

Many years I said no
I was wrong, didn't know

Nights can be hell, you little demon
But when you wake up in the mornin'
You give me a lovely smile
My baby, my little child

Oh, I could find a resting place
But I prefer your sweet little face
Hold that cuddle for a while
My baby, my little child

Your mum is a queen
She has borne me a dear son, a king

Just as you came into the world
My life has changed, cute little bluebird
You're the apple of my eye
My baby, my little child

Don't mind the tigers, don't mind the lions
I am your dad, I'll kill the dragons
I will soothe you when you cry
My baby, my little child

THE PARTY
Matthieu Boré ©2003

Artificial lights, smoky atmosphere
I look around and find a bottle of beer
People are dancin' to the radio
I run into a funny guy named Moe, he says

No I don't care about tomorrow
Light as a bird, without any sorrow
No I don't care about tomorrow
Time passes by like the rivers flow, he says

May I introduce you to Miss Pearly White
She's a sweet girl I met the other night
She has a quick dance on the floor
This is the kind of party I adore

No I don't care about tomorrow
Light as a bird, without any sorrow
No I don't care about tomorrow
Time passes by like the rivers flow

When I go off and I'm losin' my mind
I'll be higher than the trees and the clouds, I'll be fine
I wanna stay up there oh, it's so nice
To live forever in paradise
I'll be waiting for the ones I love

No I don't care about tomorrow
Light as a bird, without any sorrow
No I don't care about tomorrow
Time passes by like the rivers flow

SATISFY MY SOUL
Matthieu Boré ©1995

I walk along the highway, I feel such sorrow today
The tears run clear down to my chin
The four winds blow hard on my skin

Your eyes are empty and your promises too
Why don't you care how I feel about you
Just look at me once, you will satisfy my soul

You don't see me at all when I crave a smile
I have a fear deep inside, you could never be mine

I howl at the moon, my affection is strong
I will sing everyday that same old song
Just look at me once, you will satisfy my soul

SHE
Matthieu Boré ©1996

I was hunting in the clouds like I used to everyday
When she ran into me

I was happy with my catch, what a capture by the way
I had a smile on my face

She is now out of sight, gee but I don't know what to do
She has taken to her heels, slipped through the net

Very often I recall the day she ran into me
She had a smile on her face

THANK YOU GIRL
Suzie Blackstone / Matthieu Boré ©2008

My love had gone, my life was a mess
It did hurt me more than I could guess
I was burnin' inside when dying of cold
What has happened to me, I've never been told

I've found a friend, a true warm embrace
A woman of heart, a smile on her face
Now I can count on her to lend me an ear
Each time I break down and fall into tears

I just wanna thank you girl for all the time you offered me
Hope your love will set me free

I was missing the past, all the things I had lost
I wanted them back whatever it cost
But I feel, when you talk, I gotta let go
And should better think about tomorrow

TOO MUCH IN LOVE TO SEE
Suzie Blackstone / Matthieu Boré ©1995

You cheated on me and though I tried to forget your deception
You did it again, I was too much in love to see

You drive me crazy, give me the reason why you treat me so bad
I just can't go on, I was too much in love to see

Get drunk night and day and though I try to forget your deception
I'm wasting away, I was too much in love to see

But, man, if this stands, I'll be a wreck by the time I'm fifty
Ain't that a shame, I was too much in love to see
