HOUSE OF RAINBOWS

1. Some people say, life is a crosswalk:
Black stripe, and white stripe, then black – and white.
Some people say, it’s a box of chocolates,
Never know what you get till you take a bite.

Chorus:
Well, I say, life is a house of rainbows
Catch one and ride it, if you can
red and orange and golden yellow
green, blue and indigo, and violet rain

2. You may wonder if I’ve lost my mind
You’ll ask: “But what about sorrow and loss?”
But there’s still color in grief and suffering,
Scarlet is anger; but laughter’s turquoise.

Chorus.
Instrumental Solo
Chorus.

3. You say dreams are purple; I dream in silver.
Words can deceive us, but colors don’t lie.
Light turns to shade; the sun dissolves in the water…
Let the color of magic into your life.

CHOCOLATE

1. What is this scent coming down the street?
It reminds me of honey and wine…
I think my heart just skipped a beat.
It’s mysterious, soulful, divine.

2. Little chocolate chips, how they tease me
Like a young lover’s touch on my skin
Like a bite on the lips, like a wave of the hips,
I indulge in my favorite sin.

Chorus (repeat twice):
Chocolat, шоколад [shokolud], ciocolatta,
All your names on my tongue – ah, so sweet…
Chocolate truffles with cognac or latte,
How I melt in your delicate heat.

3. I’m in a fever, your kisses corrupt me
Like a vampire, I crave your delight
In the middle of the night, it’s my magical rite,
Your perfection – so dark and snow white!

4. My head is swimming,
And my reason’s gone…
Your taste is calling to me
To your flame I am drawn…

Chorus. (repeat twice)
Instrumental Solo

GOOD MORNING

1. Hey…
Good morning!
Hello!
Wake up!
You’re not dreaming,
We’re in heaven.

2. All your worries are gone,
The ocean’s singing a song.
We’ll have pancakes in bed.
Today is the day
When all your dreams
Will come true.

Chorus (repeat twice):
Don’t trust him, don’t trust anyone,
Just pack your bags and run away from here.
If you stay, you’ll lose yourself
And you’ll forget about all your dreams.

Hey…
Good morning!
Hello!
Wake up!
You’re not dreaming,
We’re in heaven.

Instrumental Solo

Spoken Chorus
Chorus (repeat twice)

Hey,
Good morning!
Hello!
Wake up!
You’re not dreaming,
We’re in heaven…

THE ROAD

1. One day you wake up
The road calls you to the door
The sky is clear; your life is full of choices.
You carry the blessings of home
A bird cries out your name
You follow the call of your heart.

Chorus:
And then you turn into a valley
Moving sand creeps to your feet
And nothing seems too clear or too certain
All you hear is the laughter
Of unfamiliar gods.

Vocal Interlude

2. Remember the banners of gold?
Remember the crumbling walls?
I remember nothing at all.
Remember, the gun in your hand?
Remember, people fell?
I don’t remember. There’s nothing to tell.

Chorus:
D’you know who held your hand when you were dying?
Who pressed the lips to your fevered cheek?
And someone prayed so quietly in the corner
While all you heard was the laughter
Of unfamiliar gods
Vocal Interlude

3. And then you wake up
Under crisp and clean white sheets
Your fever’s gone, and the war is won.
Remember, the gun in your hand?
Remember, people fell?
I don’t remember. There’s nothing to tell.

Chorus:
D’you know who held your hand when you were dying?
Who pressed the lips to your fevered cheek?
And someone prayed so quietly in the corner
But all you heard was the laughter
Of unfamiliar gods.

DON’T FEAR, DEAR

Lyrics by Maria Deykute/ Music by V. Brofman &G. El Bacha

1. You say there’s someone watching you
Out of the corner of your eye
A shadow friend, a silent tune
Another trick of light
You are afraid he’ll come for you at night.

But don’t fear, dear, fear nothing at all
It’s just the wind tossing leaves, just a sign of the fall
Just a memory, fading from you
I’ll take care of you.

2. You tell me there’s a crooked bird
Inside a hollow tree
Its eyes are red; it moans and croaks,
And beats you with its wings.
You are afraid it’ll tear out your soul.

Well, don’t fear, dear, fear nothing at all
It’s just an old umbrella, just a child’s call
Just the cold wailing softly for spring
Don’t be afraid of anything.

Instrumental Solo

3. You say these hands are cages
And the cupboards are traps
You say when I turn off the light,
You see nowhere to run.
You are afraid I’ll love you and stay.

Well, don’t fear, dear, I never loved you that way.
It’s just the winter is brutal and the nights are so long,
It’s just I needed somebody to address in a song,
Let’s sit together and holler for spring –
Don’t be afraid of anything.

DEAR JOHN

1. To you, dear John,
You made me smile again,
You made me laugh again,
You made me live again.

2. Johnny, my darling,
You made me see the moon,
Dream of blue lagoons,
The sunshine in your arms.

Chorus:
But if you leave me, I’ll go mad.
And I will read your mail and follow every trail.
I’ll find that other girl
And cut her pretty curls.

3. Johnny, my love,
You know how much you mean
To my heart of a queen.
I’d rather see you blue than with somebody new.

Instrumental Interlude

4. Johnny, my love,
You know how much you mean
To my heart of a queen.
I’d rather see you blue than with somebody new.

Chorus:
So if you leave me, I’ll be bad.
And I will call your boss, and say that you got lost.
And I will call your mom
And tell her: “John is dead!”

UNEMPLOYED

1. Unemployed,
Don’t ask me what I do, I am just
Unemployed,
Don’t ask me for how long, I think
I lost the count when my insurance ran out.

2. Unemployed,
Don’t ask me where I live, I am just
Unemployed,
Am I homeless yet? I think
I lost my house just when Wall Street got bailed out!

Chorus:
I used to be a writer, long ago.
He was an engineer.
They told me literature is out of print.
And told him: “You’ve been outsourced!”

3. Unemployed
I don’t know if I’ll eat tomorrow
Unemployed
I don’t know where I’ll sleep tomorrow…
All I know – I’m at the end of the line!

Instrumental Solo

Chorus:
I used to be a writer, long long long ago.
He was an engineer.
They told me literature is out of print.
And told him: “You’ve been outsourced!”

4. Unemployed,
Don’t ask me what I do, I am just
Unemployed,
Don’t ask me for how long, I think
I lost the count when my insurance ran out.

Instrumental Interlude

I’ve been waiting here, waiting here, waiting here.
I’ve been waiting here, waiting here, waiting here.
At the end of the line, at the end of the line…

LA BELLE DU JOUR

1. Et toi qui as cherché, qui as désespéré
Qui t’es perdu mille fois, sur les sentiers des sots
Tu chantes a haute voix, dans la lumière plus bleu
Tu donnes des nouveaux noms, aux fleurs aux animaux.

Chorus (repeat twice):
La belle du jour
Belle de la nuit
Maintenant elle est
La belle dame de ta vie

2. Et toi qui a passé, mille et une nuits
À penser au regard, qui t’emmenera la paix,
Tu dors comme un enfant, qui rêve au Père Noël
Ton sourire est si grand, j’en voix un arc-en-ciel.

Chorus (repeat twice)

Instrumental Solo

3. Sous le regard si doux de tes yeux souriants
Le monde renait pour toi, tout jeune et merveilleux.
L’amour sera ton guide, ta fleur et ton épée
Pour conquérir le monde: la terre, les eaux, les cieux.

Chorus (repeat twice)

TWO BIRDS

1. Well, it was a long
It was an endless winter
My love, you have slept
For a hundred years.

You dreamt of silence,
Snow and poisoned needles,
Nothing could awake you
From your fears.

Chorus (repeat twice):
Now we’re just two birds
Flying in the moonlight
In the uncertain light of spring

2. You sent me away
For a lifetime and a day
Well, perhaps I came back
From the dead.

See the world clearly
Maybe for the first time
Nothing is yours or mine
The wind has changed

Chorus (repeat twice)
Instrumental Solo

3. I’ll break your ice with thunder
Tear the veils asunder
I’ll warm the fox and rabbit
With my breath

See the sky glowing
Hear the river flowing
Smell the first snowdrops
In the wind.

Chorus (repeat twice)

NOT GOOD ENOUGH

1. I wanted to be a lawyer, but I couldn’t tell right from wrong.
I wanted to be fighter, turns out I’m not that strong.
I wanted to be a sailor, got the ground knocked from under my feet.
I wanted to be a restaurant chef, but I just couldn’t stand the heat!

I huff and puff – not good enough.
Each time I try – not good enough
It’s ringing in my ears – not good enough,
Feeding on my fears – not good enough.
Not good enough, not good enough, not good enough!

2. I wanted to be a painter, but they told me I’m color blind.
I wanted to be a Rabbi, but God said you’re out of your mind.
So I turned to my final passion, and I sold my soul on a bet.
The devil keeps his promises, so now my life is all set.

I’m as charming as Marilyn, am I good enough?
As profound as the Bible, am I good enough?
I bribe and steal, am I good enough?
I’m the realest deal, am I good enough?
What do you think, am I good enough?

Instrumental Solo

3. My public support is growing, I’ve never felt so well
The President is calling me, I’m such an easy sell.
My rating polls are rising, the campaign is almost won.
The White House isn’t far now, my opponents are all gone.

I’m as charming as Obama, I’m good enough,
as profound as Lincoln, I’m good enough.
I bribe and steal, I’m good enough,
I’m the realeast deal, I’m good enough.

I’m good enough, I’m good enough, I’m good enough.
Yes, now, for the first time, I’m good enough.
I’m good enough, I’m good enough. Hell, yeah!

SMILE MY LOVE

Speak, my love,
Speak, my love,
Tell me what you’re thinking of,
Tell me what you’re dreaming of.
Smile, my love.
Smile, my love.

I know it’s hard
To live apart.
I’ll call you every night on skype.
You’ll feel me near you all the time.
So smile, my love.
Smile, my love.

Da-ba-da-ba-da…

When you’re back
When you’re back
We’ll be the richest people in town,
We’ll buy a cow and I’d like it brown,
So smile, my love
Smile, my love!

Instrumental Solo

When you’re back
When you’re back
We’ll be the richest people in town,
We’ll buy a cow and I’d like it brown,
So smile, my love
Smile, my love!

Da-ba-da-ba-da…
