Lyrics
Je faisais la manche dans le Métro Porte des Lilas
I was panhandling at Porte des Lilas Station
 
elle brûlait les planches face aux caméras
she was a star on stages in front of cameras 
 
moi je n’étais qu’un zonard elle une étoile reine de Saba
I was just a tramp she was a star as the Queen of Sheba
 
est-ce le fruit du hasard entre elle et moi Loretta
is it mere coincidence you and me Loretta
 
un jour de décembre dans le Métro Porte des Lilas 
one day in December at Porte des Lilas Station
 
j’ai croisé le regard de Loretta pour la première fois
we made eye contact for the first time
 
fleur de fuchsia d’ébène et d’ivoire blottie contre moi
fuchsia-ebony-ivory flower nestled against me
 
elle fuyait la scène et la gloire loin des caméras
she was fleeing stages and glory far from cameras
 
elle m’a dit je pars au bout du monde viens avec moi
she told me I’m leaving to the ends of the earth come with me
 
je l’aimais trop j’ai dit adieu au Métro Porte des Lilas
I was so much in love I said goodbye to Porte des Lilas Station

Je faisais la manche dans le métro Porte des Lilas
I was panhandling at Porte des Lilas Station
 
elle brûlait les planches face aux caméras
she was a star on stages in front of cameras 
 
Loretta dans ton regard tant de barrières volent en éclats
Loretta in your eyes, so many barriers explode
 
nous nous aimons quelque part au bout du monde oh Loretta
we love each other somewhere at the ends of the earth oh Loretta

New song
Great to come back here Vic ! Thanks for your comment…
This song was a little bit laborious for me, I had not sung for a long time, I abandoned Garage Band so I grope again on Logic and I've still a lot to learn, but I will persevere.

This is awesome, Marc...
A nice folk/pop feel, and as Vic points out, nice transitions from the solo piano vibe to the band feel...Overall, a nice feel of 'just enough' to the arrangement...

I like your vocal as well.

Just enough
Ed ! It’s nice to see you here and what a good surprise to read your comment on this song.
OK folk/pop, I was no sure of the good genre of this song, so I check "other"...
Thank you so much for your support, encouraging and very appreciated…

Salut de la fin du monde!
What a great post Marc! I guess you've been spending some time inside during winter, and what better way to make use of your time than this. I can picture you at your desk looking out at the garden making this happen ;)
I really like the sound of the song - the words, your voice, the instrumentation and the excellent production all work so well together. I especially enjoyed the "band" section where things get lively.
C'est vraiment bien Marc!
Salutations de l'Australie à vous deux (Jan dit "Salut" aussi).

Salut du bout du monde !
Hello Neil ! Thank you so much for this positive words. I’ve to say that I’m pleasantly surprised by the content of these first comments. As I write to Vic, it was however a little bit laborious for me. The next time you come in France, would you give me any tips ?
I agree, the winter is a favorable season to stay inside warm and play music. I will send you soon news pictures with the snow in the garden…
Amitiés de France, bonjour à Jan et salut aux kangourous

We have been in touch with Bertrand, and may be able to stay a little longer in la rue d'ecluse next year - it will be great to spend some more time with you and Brigitte (et Lilou of course). I will of course be very happy to help with Logic then (and now if you have anything you might need to know).
Amitiés,
N

Merveilleux!

Bon d'entendre une chanson de vous. Une belle chanson, magnifiquement joué et chanté.

Mais une question. Brigitte ne savoir sur Loretta ?

Amicalements

Une question ?
Chuttt Dick... Brigitte doesn't know nothing concerning Loretta, please don't tell her, keep the secret !
Ah ah ah but It's not my story. However, if a nice girl insist, maybe I could accept to go with her to the ends of the earth !
Thank you to be there Dick. It's always a great pleasure to read your comments, especially in a good French !
Once again, if you project to come in France, we hope to see you at home (of course if you promise not to talk about Loretta).
Amitiés.

impressionnant
Amazed by the songwriting, performance and production! Soothing. Takes you back to simpler time. Are you playing all the instruments? And your voice sounds better than ever. And to see our friend Vic use a word like 'wonderful'... :)

blaky smith said 300 days ago (February 20th, 2017)
Thanks Parichayaka !
Thanks for your kind words. I'm touched by this "impressionnant" from you, as this "wonderful" from Vic...
I'm just playing guitars, all the others sounds with virtual instruments on keyboard.
Cheers

Un jour de décembre
Lovely song, Marc. I really like how it "flows". Your vocal is warm and engaging. Love the subtle arrangement and the way it builds, too. The dominant lead piano lines are a great "hook". Terrific post. Merci.

Hook !
Thank you so much for the kind words about this song Peter. Glad you enjoyed it. However, as I write above, it was a little bit laborious for me, not sung for a long time and missing practice, groping on Logic PX....
Cheers. Marc

Welcome back Marc!
It's been awhile.

You pull no punches here. Nicely arranged. Beautifully sung. Lovely piano. Very melodic.

Even without the translation I think I would have understood this at some level.

Enjoyed very much!

Be well friend!

Excellent!
Thanks for posting your material her at MJs.
The production here supports the material. The vocals are wonderful.
Might seem remote for you but this recalls commercial music I heard in the Benelux in late 80s, has that particular air and bounce...

Thanks for coming
and commenting Daug, really too kind...
I missed a lot of songs. At this moment, I'm just listening to your "Oh Caroline, No", which sounds very cool, very original... I've a lot of time to make up !

Superb monsieur! C'est une chanson du coeur sans doute.

Je croix que les paroles sont un peu différentes de celles ci-dessous?

Très chaleureux. Merci Marc!

You and me, Loretta
I have a feeling the barriers these two need to surmount entail more than just class : )

But, hey, love is strange.

You may have been on a break from songwriting and recording, but this deft piece shows your sensibilities are intact. The phrasing, both vocally and musically, is warm and wonderful.

Nice one Marc
thanks for including the translation. You are a talent. It's nice to hear songs in other languages... the structure adds to the composition. Love the changes through out, so pro sounding. Thanks for sharing.
