Under My Shell

Under my shell
Where the skin's mild and smooth
I hide a place
Of tender warm flesh

Welcoming as a young tender shoot
Under the flexible pressure of your palm
Arrived in the course of a dull time
To reveal my senses at the root

I couldn't fall
Silent anymore
My life was in a vice
Tensing my skin on my bones

Making worrying and fierce
The cockrow at dawn and the stench of the ponds
Scaring every noise, everything,
Leading me to pray for a magic wand

Under my shell...
Under my shell...

Under my skin...
Stirred by squars in rythm
My body, my twin
Was tense as a reed

As under a green turtle's skeleton
At least delivering its fragility
Out of its hospitable peel
Free and staying out in the sun

I'll keep my shell
My shedding skin
In a quiet spot of my head
Only known from me

In place of it i'll wear this gracious truth
That's asking to be born again
And will be given a new youth
Under the caress of your hands

Under my shell...
Under my shell...

Une base de pop à la Beatles, un zeste de rock à la Bowie ou à la PJ Harvey, une pincée de jazz, de reggae ou de musique latine: pour un voyage musical qui s'invente dans une ambiance de courts-métrages...
