- Lyrics - Can you feel my pain ? When you meet me on the avenue And it’s such a shame for me Feel like a fool when I’m with you. You could be on top of the world oh If you wanted to But I don’t need no favor from you You believe in nothing at all Yeah I feel like a cannonball, rolling on. I’m not the chosen one I feel like a monkey in a zoo People keep passing by But all the stories are true, I’m a full time fool. We’re all just hangin by a thread It only tears us apart We all stop moving on I got the groove but I can’t move You could be on top of the world oh If you wanted to But I don’t need no favor from you You believe in nothing at all Yeah I feel like a cannonball, rolling on. Don’t be lazy Don’t be sad Take a step back Don’t be lazy, don’t be sad. You could be on top of the world oh If you wanted to But I don’t need no favor from you You believe in nothing at all Yeah I feel like a cannonball, rolling on. If I could change one thing It would be something about you I’m not the chosen one I feel like a monkey in a zoo People keep passing by But all the stories are true, I’m a full time fool.

Palm Tree 05:19
- Lyrics - If you ask me to come And to wipe the slate clean I will be someone new I will bring you the moon And for sure I’ll be there For your smile, for your tears I will never let you Loose yourself in the gloom Oh I should be there for you But I waste my time I was obsessed with myself Then I lost my mind for gold and fame But I had you If we try to start again I will tell you the truth I will build you a house With a palm on the roof I will take off my blindfold Just to see someone new You can get on my back If we fly to the moon Oh I should be there for you But I waste my time I was obsessed with myself Then I lost my mind for gold and fame But I had you I would be your palm tree Your garden of love If we only take the time I wanna prove it to you You gave me the best years So can we go back I would like to hear you laughing And watch you dance my love My love for you is real It has always been I need you to be my girl Like you used to do Oh I should be there for you But I waste my time And for now and for ever You will be the one I was obsessed with myself Then I lost my mind for gold and fame No I won’t let you down again So let me kiss you in the rain ‘cause I love you

Navel Cord 04:57
- Lyrics - My eyes keep searching for you but you are gone I guess I never knew how that feels I wanna walk on the street all by myself Even if it’s dark and strange You build me a wall made out of love But I grew up, enough to climb You’ve always been standing by my side You gave me more than I deserve, I love you mum but I’m a grown man The safety-glass has been broken, I’m alone Bringin’ together my doubts and dreams Floating like a feather I’ve got a lot to learn No one here to treat me like a baby boy Never again You build me a wall made out of love But I grew up, enough to jump You’ve always been standing by my side Mama I would feel the rain, ain’t got no coat but I’m a man Now I Want to be part of everything So give it all, give it all Now Just let me eat the world But you Call me on phone, ask me if I come home Oh give it up, give it up Please Mummy I’m still your son So give me back my cigarettes And wish me all the very best You know sometimes I’m such a mess But I’m never gonna stop loving you.

Contract 04:04
- Lyrics - I have some trouble but I never mind I play guitar with a broken hand I pay the bill, for all whose eatin around I ain't got no money but it's a state of mind Don't put a dime on me You shouldn't bet on my name 'cause I will never be fine With the rules of this game It's too hard for me Don't put your blame on me Maybe it's takin' so long 'cause you've got so many lies In the back of your mind When you talk to me You should be humble but you have never tried You got your eyes on the Queen when you say "yes" to the King You pay the bill, but you are running the place Your friends, your money, does it make you really glad Don't put a dime on me You shouldn't bet on my name 'cause I will never be fine With the rules of this game It's too hard for me Don't put your blame on me Maybe it's takin' so long 'cause you've got so many lies In the back of your mind When you talk to me With pen and paper you gonna seal my fate My signature on the back, your initials on the front, that's it We make a deal, but we are sneaking around Even if you screw me I will screw you twice

about

Tracklisting - EP ‘’Holding The Universe Together’’
1. ‘’Full Time Fool’’ | 2. ‘’Palm Tree’’ | 3. ‘’Navel Cord’‘ | 4. ’’Contract’’ |
-
Created under the leadership of singer Adam Wood, BLESSINGS was established to highlight the bond between a group of close friends and musicians with an already impressive track record: Yann Clavaizolle (Elderberries, H-Burns), Jamie Pope (Elderberries, Sungraze), Benjamin Tessier (Kissinmas, Balzane), Morgane Imbeaud (Cocoon) and Mathéa Triniac (Orchestre National de Lyon).

The music behind BLESSINGS is consequently deeply influenced by the magic of atmospheric pop melodies, the bliss of folksy vocal harmonies, the pure energy that emerges from the many genres of rock, as well as the iconic arrangements from the classic albums of the 70s. A medley of universes and influences that allows the sextet to wander in a timeless space between the Laurel Canyon of the Byrds and the Australia of Kevin Parker and his pals.

This first EP, recorded at Mikrokosm studios in Lyon, opens with the exhilarating and refreshing nonchalance of « Full Time Fool », a dreamy, sunny and enchanting trip under the californian sky. This dreamlike feeling continues with « Palm Tree », which introduces the mellow tones of a tender melancholy that Matthew E White would not have been able to ignore. The band then takes a more direct approach and launches « Navel Cord » and its massive rhythmic beats on a journey through outer space at the speed of light. The outcome of this voyage leads to « Contract », where psychedelic wanderings are revealed amidst the energy of a futuristic rhythm and blues, where Jack White’s America is only a short distance away.
