Lonewolf 02:57
Lonewolf wannabe, watch out for dead ends The kind one, the wise one, said ‘be good friends’ Armies of one have won battles, and lost them And all that was left was a ticket to nowhere Or back to square one We woke up streets apart at the same time Middle of the night, still synchronized Acres of loneliness seemed like a treasure But lately I’ve wondered if it’s just a wasteland Where pleasure’s not fun Lonewolf wannabe, watch for dead ends The kind one, the wise one, said ‘be good friends’ Armies of one have won battles, and lost them And all that was left was a ticket to nowhere Or back to square one

Don’t make me over, don’t paint me blue Please understand me baby, please let me through You tell me that you love me - did someone tell you too? If this is what we’ve come to, baby Don’t tell me not to weep We woke up, strangers - we missed the cue Life can do that to you, babe When dark words come true You tell me that you love me - did someone tell you too? If this is what we’ve come to, baby Don’t tell me not to weep

If you did stumble into promises that fall You missed the point about it all Don’t understate a girl with love for simple hearts If you dismiss her mind about a simple fact If you dismiss her mind about Summer’s here again, with its smell of sweet parades She’s kissing back the things you said She makes you wonder if she could be anyone If you dismiss her mind about a simple fact If you dismiss her mind about And you can bother to connect and try To travel across a mountain top Consider all the losses, mind about it all Our small destruction and the sadness of it all It wasn’t what it seemed to be it turned out to be such a keen distraction, after all

Second Best 03:50
They sink in the burst of summer nights Their eyes seem to fall upon the stars They smile to themselves, the lovers’ chime They’re swinging along and keeping time And they may travel across the land, hey But they can’t choose to travel light They sway ‘tween romantic poetry And the lure of polyamory Consider the whole, we’re built to last Consider the worst, I hope you lied And they could choose a second best Somebody not too hard to tack

700,000 records Couldn’t keep me away from you But 300 of those records Are the songs that speak about you 700,000 records Could have sucked the life out of me But the fact is all those records Are the things that set me free So that’s the matter with me You can have me either way, oh baby But please consider the love I feel for all these precious 700,000 records Couldn’t keep me away from you But the novels, clothes and jumble May be blocking the point of breakthrough 700,000 records Could be lots more, I’m telling the truth But I’d keep just one of them now For the things that I find in you So that’s the matter with me You can have me either way, oh baby But please consider the love I feel for all these precious 700,000 records

Tu es toutes les femmes et aucune Tu emportes la gloire et la ruine Si ce n’est pas trop tard Peut-être je pourrai tenter fortune Je suis la force qui allume Les avenirs, celle qui parfume Les crépuscules barbares J’adoucis dans le coeur les amertumes Si tu sais répondre aux pourquois Ce qui coule dans les ombres Des gens à deux mille visages Je veux me tourner vers toi Tu es une chance inopportune Qui monte sur scène à la brune Si je ne suis pas vantard Je pourrai bien te demander la lune Tu suis toutes les femmes et aucune Et de tout ça, tu gardes rancune Peut-être, par hasard Tu pourras d’entre les miennes aimer quelqu’une Tu es toutes les femmes et aucune T’emportes la gloire et la ruine Si ce n’est pas trop tard Peut-être on pourra tenter fortune Oui, je sais répondre aux pourquois Ce qui coule dans les ombres Des gens à deux mille visages Peut-être on va tenter fortune On pourrait demander la lune D’entre les miennes aimer quelqu’une

Real Change 04:51
Messing-it-up-again was speaking to a kind of friend I’m turning up with Jane, she’s gone out to buy some ‘caine Hovering over flames turned into a risky game But while breaking up the chains the Benzedrine took the blame Broken boy can sometimes beget the highest wonders So please don’t ask him to change range Lonely boy will never be where the polite are yonder So please don’t ask him for a real change Lovers were in the mend, but shot arrows with no aim Robbie did make a stand, he’s now in a different frame Broken boy can sometimes beget the highest wonders So please don’t ask him to change range Lonely boy will never be where the polite are yonder So please don’t ask him for a real change So you’re getting back from hell, so you’re getting back again So you’re feeling down - it wasn’t nothing lyrics can’t tell Take me down and back my friend, so you’re getting back again So you’re feeling down - it wasn’t nothing lyrics can’t tell Take me down my friend, take me down and ask my name Who’s feeling lonely? I am not the one, you can tell

I walk the streets without your shadow, down in the summertime You seem to be in every corner at the same time Too fast, too young, too soon, too many things to take in now Too sad, too much, too cool, too damned it’s cold in the summertime An angel crossed the threshold Deep down we’re breaking down and crying But you’ll be within us forevermore Sweet prince in a white suit, too cool for the jackboots My sweetheart said ‘this is not right - you’re way too good for this’ And then farewell, and I thought of the child in you It’s hard when they break your heart in two in the violent summertime ‘Gone but not forgotten’, I know you’ll always smirk from a shootin’ star An angel crossed the threshold Down here we’re breaking down and crying But you’ll be within us forevermore Sweet prince in a white suit, too cool for the jackboots

Blank piece of paper with only your name You avoid my eyes each time I look at you Why don’t you kiss me and put my mind to rest? Are you trying to ignore me or is it something else? So please put your lips, your lips, your lips Put your lips and fulfill the soul of me It’s been a while since you caught my eye And I can’t think of anything else Sometimes I wonder ‘what is the matter?’ You fulfill me like no one else So please put your lips, your lips, your lips Put your lips and fulfill the soul of me There’ll come the day, I hope not too far When you and I will walk hand in hand Heaven has made us to be as one Everyone seems to know that you’re my dear Looks like my mission to make you understand I am your destiny and you’re my fate So please...

Now that I’m looking at youth from afar From the other side, from the other side And I’m looking back from the other track Blinking at the light gleaming from the stars From rhinestone to limestone From Starman to Blackstar From temporary ex to millenial sex Now that I’m looking at those very same eyes That have loved me back from the other side Now that love’s on track, California style I will follow you into hell and back From Bitter to Glitter From stranger to stronger From Raspberry Beret to Percocet And I’m thinking of the decades of our love And the things we’ve gone through when push comes to shove Some of our friends are here, some are dead and gone But I still have you, the greatest of all From Vince Clarke to Gene Clark I miss Meyer more than ever From Bye Bye Pride to the great divide From the heart’s echo chamber To frozen in amber From teenage crush to Proustian rush

about

El próximo 20 de marzo se publicará, por fin, "Love and Squalor", el primer álbum de J'AIME (Jaime Cristóbal de Souvenir). Un disco que, precedido por el adelanto de "700,000 Records", lleva la obra de J'AIME a su continuación natural después de los dos EPs (“My Cigarettes” y "En la noche eterna") de la década pasada. Una evolución que amplía su, de sobra conocido, eclecticismo a terrenos nuevos y apasionantes. A su habitual destreza para el pop y la emoción, se añaden novedosas e imponentes orquestaciones de cuerda, una variedad de estilos deslumbrante (desde retro-tecno-pop o country hasta pelotazos de power-pop) y en general el habitual sonido twang-pop del artista, aumentado y perfeccionado. La grabación en los renovados Estudios Lúnula con la participación de músicos de renombre internacional, como Françoiz Breut en "700,000 Records", que pronto iremos desvelando, ha servido de estímulo y contribuye a que sea el trabajo más delicado y a la vez contundente de J'AIME, con una producción espectacular. En resumidas cuentas, a lo largo de las doce composiciones que integran "Love and Squalor", J'AIME explora en clave de pop, twang y drama 'badalamentiano' las luces y sombras del amor y de la mortalidad.
