{Not an EP nor an album, but something in between}

credits

released November 4, 2015

Hi. My name is Tim and I'm 28. This is the end of Summer 2015. This is not an EP nor an album, and it can be whatever you want it to be. Have a beautiful time listening to it.
It will tell you its nine tales and then wander till spring.

Everything was recorded @ the Flower Travelling Cinnamon Studio between summer 2014 & summer 2015 by myself with kind help from Rémi Mencucci. Drums were recorded by Rémi Mencucci & Jérôme "Nîm" Trachet.

Nîm mixed and mastered the whole thing, and we produced the album together.
I wrote all the music and lyrics, except "Iron Hand", which was written by Mark Knopfler.
I also edited and put together the pieces of the album.

It would have sounded very different Without a Little Help From My Friends, so here you go :

Fabrice Martin is our live sound-buddy.
David Laurie is our Light in the Dark

Tim & Nîm play on instruments made by Franck Claise + www.claise-guitares.com

The cover is a picture called "J'aperçois La Lumière" by InFravez / Mikael Broidioi. infravez.com
Artwork and design put together by Dimitri Toebat / Groogbag / www.groogbag.com

Track Name: Soon Enough
Soon Enough

And I don't remember how it ends
But I've seen this before
Only this time my sweet friend
You're the colors that I mend

And soon enough
I'll fall out of us
But soon enough
I'll miss missing you

And yes I can hear what heart refuses to heal
But I'll hide in your salty skin
And life will strike back in the morning
But I'll seek your salty skin

And soon enough
I'll fall out of us
But soon enough
I'll miss missing you

Life will strike back in the morning
The sheets soaked up your salty skin
Soon enough

Summer 2013
Track Name: Yous In Mornings
Yous In Mornings

This airport coffee tastes like meat
But I don't care about breakfast
Here comes the countdown of heartbeats
(54321 : Go)
Flight from the presents to outrun the cast
None of us know what's left to breathe
Air turns into Lead, leaving us tethered

How did I manage to get this far
While putting "u"s in mornings?
There once was someone righteous, someone now dead
The sweetest someone inside our heads
I tried the lack, tried the lack of us
I said "hope" and you said "quicksand"

How can you be sung this much ?
Finding the reasons down my tears
I miss the heat of my heart
We never trained to be that happy
I thought I was alone
Routine told me not to cry about it
I thought I was alone
It was once true as I recall it


How did I manage to get this far
While putting "u"s in mornings?
There once was someone righteous, someone now dead
The sweetest someone inside our heads
I tried the lack, tried the lack of us
I said "hope" and you said "quicksand"

Based on a song
written in march 2008)
Track Name: (You Are) Home
(You are) Home


As we're snapping out
It feels like a good time to desert
Not from anybody
Not even from a real country
We would just find a place
Where I wouldn't find myself
In the eyes of the shrieking common sense

And each night that they fed
Bares the devil's number on a license plate

I think I'll feel home when I'll feel safe
And if I never do
Then the blank tapes will
How do I get to raise the odds of the everyday fight?
If I'm just this sport
For the bored survivalists

And each night that they fed
Bares the devil's number on a license plate

But I get to come back to you
I'll feel home
As long
As they let me come back



(24/06/2014 - 23/02/2015)
Track Name: Iron Hand
Iron Hand

Was written by Mark Knopfler
And originally recorded
for the "Which Side Are You On?" compilation.
It was changed a little bit since then.

This version is dedicated
To everyone fighting
For what feels
Fair and true
To their heart.

It is not dedicated to anyone
Promoting ANY kind of
Segregation or hatred
Between human beings though.
Even if it feels
Fair and true to them.

Fuck them.
Track Name: Endemic Laughters
Endemic Laughters

Carve the oubliette
Into smiling ambers
And wet wood scents

Hum the song shaped-hatch
To sweep us right in
Right in

The most comfortable doubt
Won't keep us from
Peering out

Hand in hand
Within the wet wood scents

We'll blend right in
Right in

Downsizing the Springs
Of clueless bliss
All the endemic laughters
And their golden frames
Will be freed from sunday afternoons
Booked up from three'o clock
We'll follow the silver stream
Squint your eyes and shake your soul
Until the reckless supply of demands
Folds up and rests on your lap

There are no doubts here
It stands to reason
It sits with the heart
With fears as pets
Within the wet wood scents
In the open garden of Us

Track Name: Mono No Aware
Mono No Aware

It's all over now you know
We can come out and laugh
Now that it's safe to glow

Holding hands while we sleep here
This is not where it all ends
But where new Love appears

The skin that was shed
Is now a shell for the heart

This song is a striped flag
On the Moon of Time
And there is no such thing
As a small step my dear

Now take a friend into your arms
Tell him that trust is so rare and pure
And that not giving up on a romantic soul
Is the noblest quest of all

The skin that was shed
Is now a shell for the heart
