about

This homemade EP was a real joy to make. Made of collaborations between super talented musicians from Toronto (Canada) & Nancy (France). There is not a specific direction for this album, there is 4 different directions. We pushed the boundaries of style and tried a couple different ones, making each song unique.
This project wouldn't have been possible without the precious collaboration of Brian Vegas & Christophe Maltin.

Chris would like to thank:

Merci à Josee de m'avoir renouvelé sa confiance en me permettant de participer à ses nouvelles créations, et merci à tous ceux qui ont croisé ma route, musicalement, amicalement, amoureusement, familialement, et qui ont toujours laissé de la place à la basse dans ma vie.

Josee would like to thank:

A BIG BIG thank you to my friends, both online and around me, for your support during the last few months. It truly means the world! I can't thank Brian Vegas, Christophe Maltin & David O'Leary enough for their precious help. Brian did tremendous work on 4 of the songs of this album, and without him it wouldn't have been possible. Chris was always available to help whenever we needed a bass track, and it is a real pleasure every time to discover your melodies. David stepped in for one last song, taking it to heart and creating magic for it. That song wouldn't have happened with you.
Thank you seems so little for all your hard work guys! Please know that I am very grateful and feel blessed to have such generous and talented people in my life.

Track Name: It's A Strange World
It all started well and in good fun
Until being good was not enough
You had the talent to take it far
But you wanted to be his star

All the attention cannot compare
To that one like and that one share
So you did what you had to to be seen
What does it matter if it's not real

What a strange world
Where all that matters Is your number of followers
Since you can buy them, no need to worry
You'll have enough to show your popularity

It's a fake life, in a fake world, behind a real screen
But in real life you'd never live up to the dream
We create an illusion and have people believe
In our fake lives, in our fake world

You had the look many only dream of
But it didn't make you happy
You wanted it to fit your personality
Cause being yourself was not enough

You decided to take things up a notch
That your look needed a touch up
You started with your face and now you see
No one recognizes who you used to be

But in this strange world
It don't matter as long as you have the followers
You're unhappy? Just change your body
Who cares what you'll look like when you're 40

It's a fake life, in a fake world, behind a real screen
But in real life you'd never live up to the dream
We create an illusion and have people believe
In our fake lives, in our fake world


What made you decide that being yourself wasn't good enough?
That you have to wear a mask to get the attention and love?
You seek to be well known rather than worth knowing
You want to become a star without having to do anything

It's a fake life, in a fake world, behind a real screen
But in real life you'd never live up to the dream
We create an illusion and have people believe
In our fake lives, in our fake world
Track Name: I'm Sorry
I used to care
But I can't right now
I can't pretend to give a damn

I used to smile
But I need some time
You can't fill up my empty heart

It's been too short
And now I'm cold
Heartless

I've figured out
What I didn't want to know
It's so obvious

It hurts me so
To have to let you go
So I just thought I'd you know

I'm sorry, I'm sorry to see you pull away from me
I'm sorry, that I am not the one you need around to carry on

I don't know
What else there is to do
How can I get through to you

You climbed so high
You're leaving me behind
The wall you built is way too high

I'm sorry, I'm sorry to see you pull away from me
I'm sorry, that I am not the one you need around to carry on

And I think that you should know
That I'll be there for you
Through tick and thin like I used to
I'll never let you down
And baby...

I'm sorry, I'm sorry to see you pull away from me
Please hear me, don't let me go so easily
I'm sorry, please don't pull away from me
I promise that I will be one to stick around when they're all gone
Track Name: What If...
In your life
There's never been a second thought

Every time
You give it everything you got

You justify
Your choices by a little love, a little love

In your mind
You imagine the perfect life

And every time
You fall in love for the first time

You can't deny
And you don't even want to try
You're addicted to love

Never alone
You cannot be on your own
Never alone
Don't wanna be left alone
On your own, all alone

What if the war inside your heart
Could come to a silent stop
Would there be something left to hear
Would there be something left to feel

In your mind
You need to change to make it right

And every time
You live your life like it's a lie

You only see
What you allow yourself to see
Becomes your reality

But you're still alone
Deep down inside you're on your own
You're still alone
But you so don't want to be all alone
On your own, left alone

What if you looked inside your heart
Could you see the broken parts
Would there be something left to save
Would there be someone left to blame

What if you searched inside your soul
Would you find out that it went cold
Would there be someone left in you
Would there be something left of you

In this life
You can't give more than what you've got

In your heart
You can't become someone you're not

You can only be
The man that you were meant to be
And that's reality

But you're not alone
You should never feel like you're alone
Cause you will never be on your own
All alone, left alone

And when the love inside your heart
Finally heals the broken parts
You will have something left to give
Just need to put away your fears

And next time you open up your heart
It won't be falling apart
There will be something left of you
There will be someone left in you

Oohhhh oohhhh

What if there's no one left to blame, what if you are the one to save...
Track Name: Lullaby For An Angel
It’s my lullaby for the angel by my side
Tonight
It’s been a long time since I had you in my life
Alive
I’ve been waiting for so long to hold your hand
Again
And at this moment I just wish we had the time
To spend again

Tonight, I just need to hold you tight
Tonight, I can feel your heart next to mine
Tonight, I just need to have you right by my side and sing to you

The lullaby of my life with you
This lullaby I will sing to you
It can go on and on
I will sing my heart to you
For you to know that I love you

You’re a treasure, I’ve been blessed to know your name
Your strength
Is a reminder that I just have to remain strong and carry on

Cause tonight, I can hold your hand in mine
Tonight , I can see the sparkle in your eyes
Tonight, I can have you right by my side and sing for you

The lullaby of my life with you
This lullaby I will sing to you
It can go on and on
I will sing my heart to you
For you to know that I miss you
I miss you
I miss you

I never knew it was the time
You were gone in the blink of an eye
I never knew how to say goodbye to you
To you

I sing this lullaby for the angel by my side
Tonight
I’ll never know why you had to go so far away
Why you couldn’t stay

But tonight, I just need your hand in mine
Tonight, I can feel your heart next to mine
Tonight, I just need to have you right by my side and one last time

Sing this lullaby of my life with you
This lullaby of my love for you
It will go on and on
Please just take it away with you
And then I’ll know
That I’m with you
I’m with you
I’m with you
