about

Grand March Strasbourg, France

Grand March shows an obvious passion for folk-rock music, a literary and cinematographic inspiration, a love of the great outdoors and a fondness for characters damaged by life...
As on a musical road movie, the duo draws from the worlds of Joyce Carol Oates, Cormac McCarthy or Terrence Malick: a wild ride that ends in abandoned old houses in the middle of nowhere...

Track Name: Running On My Own
I hold it in my hand
It’s spinning in my head
And now I’m on my own
I know I just can’t make things right
I’m running on my own, running away from this plight

Oh I’m running on my own
And I blame you
‘Cause you blew it all

Oh and I blame you, I’m running on my own
Yes I blame you, I’m running on my own

Oh I wanna go home
I don’t wanna roam
I’m done here, I’m blown

I knew it well you’d dig my well in this way, yeah
See you all fucked it up with no aim
Ah, and I’m sorry yeah that’s what I’ll claim
That’s all I’ll say (yeah) you set me up, you stabbed me in the back

Oh and I blame you, I’m running on my own
Yes I blame you, I’m running on my own

Oh I’ve had it all
It’s a deathblow
Heaven’s gone, I’m done

Oh and I blame you, I’m running on my own
Yes I blame you, I’m running on my own

Oh I wanna go home
I don’t wanna roam
I’m done here, I’m blown
Track Name: The Dark Horse
They call me a dead loss
Some kind of a useless twit, a washout
And in the end, when bets are placed
I’ll remain the unexpected
The dark horse
After all, after all
The victory to the strong
After all
Tell me how you bet

---
They call me a dead loss
Some kind of a useless prick, a washout
And in the end, when crossing the final straight
I’ll remain the unexpected
The dark horse
After all, after all
When you go for a ride
Is this worth another bet?

--- BREAK---
When the day goes by in slow motion
Then sometimes I hear ancient voices
They pull me apart
And slam me back
Two strikes are enough to put me at speed
The dark horse
After all, after all
The victory to the strong
After all
Tell me how you bet

---
You call me a dead beat
Some kind of a loser, a washout
And in the end
The dark horse
After all, after all
The greatest gamble in your life
After all
A bet for a lifetime
Track Name: Lady Belle
When I saw you I wondered
How long did it take you to come back
It seemed you suffered all the way long
Save your time and get some rest for now... Lady Belle

---

One drop of love is all you need
One drop of love would have sustained you / would keep you going on / would help you move on
Don’t you look away from me
I’m the one woman you can trust... Lady Belle

--- BREAK ---

I wish you would have healed the wound
I feel the pain deeply in your heart
I wish you would have left it (all) behind
You seem to know the truth now... Lady Belle

---

It was a long way to go (through the woods)
Running and hiding among the ghosts
More than once the world turned to dark
You’re safe now, come and rest in my arms... Lady Belle

---

How good is good enough
For a soldier of fortune?
Oh, it’s a long way to go
Eyes open, mouth shut… Lady Belle
Track Name: Let There Be Light
Oh Sun, I’m waiting for you
Where have you been, all night long?
Come on up, wash away the night
And let there be light!

---
Oh Love, wake up now
Bitter I feel by myself
Shine a light over my pillow
And let there be love!

---
Oh Mother, hear me please
Every last one of us, feel pity
Mare, save me from my night
And let there be life!

---
Oh Son, keep on sleeping
It’s time to light my way (baby)
With your golden curls and smile (baby)
And let there be hope!
Track Name: Walk It Down
Girls you’ll never gonna make it !
Walk this avenue down…
And get out safely !

Walk it down, walk it down…

---

There’s a robbery in the corner,
You’d better find your way out !
Can’t stay, no longer,
You broke in, just break out !
So help me sisters !

Get it out, get it out…

---

Foxfire’s in the building,
Girls hanging around,
Talking, laughing, cheating, fighting…
Who’s gonna run them to ground ?
For a blessing in disguise !

Foxfire, Foxfire…

---

Foxfire burns and burns
Track Name: Pistols And Guns
When you come along
With your pistols and your guns
Take a look at me son
Now you tell me what you’ve done
So you’ll save another day under the sun

I just wanna know
What brings you here my boy
As I guess the word is out
My son is back in town
And this ain’t no good, no good at all

--- REF ---
If you come in my home
You gotta wash your hands
If you take me in your arms
Don’t get me wrong

When you come along
With your pistols and your guns
You didn’t ask for what you got
But you got it anyway
Life ain’t fair, no fair at all

Gunshots on the radio
There’s a robbery going on
If nothing gets to you
If nothing’s left to loose
Every day, in every way, under the sun

--- REF ---
If you come in my home
You gotta wash your dirty hands
If you take me in your arms
Don’t get me wrong
Track Name: On My Mind
You’re always on my mind
I pray and hear the voices
You’re always on my mind
I raise my head, my hands

---
You… always in my shadow
I cry for you
You… always in my head

---
Oh, my sweet sorrows
They fade away
Oh, my dark shadows
They turn to grey

---
You… always in my head
I cry for you
You… always in my heart
And you’re always on my mind
Track Name: Sister Beware
Drink with me, Oh sister
And don’t look back
This is what we wanted
Of course we feel like hell
In the meantime, we go on
One day is the same as the next

---
Sister beware
It’s a hard life to live
A journey on its own
Sister beware

Oh girl you’re on a dark path
And you’ve been on it for a while now
Where does it lead?
Turn away from darkness!
Here is your chance
Get back on your horse

---
Sister beware
It’s a hard life to live
A journey on its own
Sister beware

Oh girl you step up now
And make your way
It’s a hard life to live
But here is your chance

Oh yeah, we had a good run
But no more excuses
No more apologies
No more lies on top of lies on top of lies

---
Sister beware
It’s a hard life to live
A journey on its own
Sister beware
Track Name: Hard Times To Come
I’m walking down the streets
Chasing away my stranded soul
Running away from my dark shadow

I couldn’t only see your face
I could now hear your voice
Stuck, in the middle of this mess

---
We knew right from the start
Everything was gonna blur
This was gonna lead to tragedy

We should have known
Bad memories
Have long shadows

---
I’m standing on my two legs
Still hard times to come
Better burn out than fade away

My broken and bleeding heart
Raw and hollow
Nothing left to loose

---
I was always on the run
Eager to get through these dark hours
A lifetime torn to pieces

A man carries his burden
Wondering what tomorrow would bring
Never so much joy, waiting for the next day

---
There comes a time in life
When all is said and done
You think you’ve earned yourself a name

But in the cool light of a coming night
I shiver with cold
I shiver with fear
