Astrid Young - Matinee

A text inspired of the atmosphere of her Cd "Matinee (Buy it)


 


Astrid,

This morning the window broke under too much pressure
A tentacular sky covers the corn field
Two crows from a Van Gogh cross it
The sky is still white without your presence close to me

The waves squabble and splash themselves like turbulent lovers
On the horizon our train is passing, is it too late to take it ?
Are we still bold enough to set a launch afloat ?
The sea is still white without your presence close to me
 
The film turns in the vacuum and the heroes are extinguished
 Their last will is to live again to love better
I don't forget than the dead are in the wrong like the absents
Then let us not be in the wrong too long, let us brighten our white screen
The colours cruelly lack life without your presence close to me
Yes life singularly lacks colours without you
