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

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

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

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!

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

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

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

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
9.
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

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...
