Please don’t go away Written & composed by Johanna Saint-Pierre You say you want your freedom It’s too much for you a kingdom You say you should go away And you think that you can’t stay Don’t you want to keep your woman? I feel my heart had been stolen I dream about a long story How can I trust you finally? This is not your kind of life But I want to be your wife Please don’t go away (4) Hearing the sound of my city Especially when I’m not sleepy I’m not going to beg you But we feel better together I’m just telling the truth Believe me it’s for ever Why do you always want to run? Far away and have some fun This is not your kind of life But I want to be your wife Please don’t go away (4) It’s not so difficult I promise it won’t hurt Don’t hesitate Let’s celebrate Today Please don’t go away (4)

Emily Joe 03:42
Emily Joe Written & composed by Johanna Saint-Pierre I was playing with Becky I remember it was early The night before I'd seen a movie About kids who freed animals I told her the whole story And even though it was silly We decided to do the same With the zoo of our city Before leaving we had candies That smelled of peach and strawberries I was afraid of falling in the hole Of escaping through the window I wanted to go now Hey! No sliding on the roof Young girl, you don't have a broom Said Becky from my bedroom Emily Joe This is my name You can't take my pain You can't read my brain Emily Joe This is my name It's not a blame Let me explain We had just arrived to the zoo Ready to start our Freedom Tour But the sky was all red and blue There was no time to unlock doors My dad was there waiting for us With a policeman... What a fuss! "Hey, no more messing around Come, I'll take you to the candy store."

SHOW ME THE WAY Written & composed by Johanna Saint-Pierre I was sitting alone Lost in my home I was feeling sad Was certainly mad Switch on the TV Listen to the music Bake a cherry pie Play with our child Show me the way Somebody saw him Kissing her somewhere She was a very good friend But she took my man Drove on the highway Willing to go astray Feeling betrayed What can I say Show me the way I asked my man To choose Between her and me But he has to promise Never to see her again No more pain Finally he chose me I'm so happy Show me the way

The Storm 04:07
The storm Written & composed by Johanna Saint-Pierre She was seventeen In 1964 She was promised to him To her sailor They talked about the ocean About the devotion She always asked him for And the storm Took the man of the sea And the storm Broke her all their dreams And the storm Took the man of the sea And the storm Didn’t feel sorry So she said goodbye To a life of love They looked for him Day after day Now the sun is high Nothing above the waves She continues to pray And the storm Took the man of the sea And the storm Broke her all their dreams And the storm Took the man of the sea And the storm Didn’t feel sorry She is dizzy Cries like a fury And the storm Took the man of the sea And the storm Broke her all their dreams And the storm Took the man of the sea And the storm Didn’t feel sorry

Alice 04:09
Alice Written by Johanna Saint-Pierre and MKL Composed by Johanna Saint-Pierre Alice’s husband’s away Time to play She laces up her high hell boots Rush to Jacky’s bar Switch your personality With your sexuality Alice makes a slide Fell to the dark side Searching within herself Looking at someone else She should be scared Pinned to the rainbow wall Feels like a butterfly Now she’s high Switch your personality With your sexuality Alice looses her head Looking at the stars Button up her blouse Off to bed

Childhood friend Written & composed by Johanna Saint-Pierre I’d love to see her again Sometimes I don’t understand For me it was wonderland She was living next door We used to play at the store But we don’t go anymore We were growing up No more birthday parties Witch were prepared by mummy Childhood friend (4) We gave up fairy tales And preferred e-mails We were looking like hell While we prepared cupcakes We dreamed of escape And tried to open gates My feeling were hurt She fell in love the first And disappeared like a bird Childhood friend (4)

Wake Up 04:03
Wake up Written & composed by Johanna Saint-Pierre It is so cold this winter I’m living with my sister We look like each other We are four in the family She is younger than me And falls in love Falls in love Her boyfriend tries to whisper That it’s time for him to prefer Another girl She falls to the ground I cry and look around So I said to her Wake up My mother was french and never She has talked about my father Mummy was so strong I told my sister That it was the wrong boy She didn’t enjoy Didn’t enjoy Wake up Don’t let you go She was drinking in her bed A coffee with sugar cane Supplicates to Mary Jane To call this boy again It’s a dangerous game Out of your brain ( bis) Wake up
