Eric Dartel Biarritz, France

Eric Dartel compose au piano sous l'inspiration d'harmonies riches qui s'assemblent naturellement en mouvements fluides sous ses doigts. Il enrichit parfois sa musique du timbre d'autres instruments acoustiques, voire électro. Libres de toute contrainte, ses propositions mélodieuses aux couleurs multiples sont autant d'invitations au voyage. ... more

Track Name: At dawn one day
AT DAWN ONE DAY

I chose these words
To talk about your life
At dawn one day
All disappears

You’re not the fruit of this love
Who gave you the life?
Small child wand’ring alone

REFRAIN
But I’m carried by the wind
All the way to you
Poor little boy who was left behind
Without their love nor tenderness
But I’m carried by the wind
All the way to you
Try to forget the sadness, the past
Keep the good, and throw the bad

I chose these words
To tell you how I’m proud
Time is running
Do you see what I mean?

You are the fruit of this song
That I made for you
You’ll never be alone

REFRAIN
But I’m carried by the wind
All the way to you
Poor little boy who was left behind
Without their love nor tenderness
But I’m carried by the wind
All the way to you
Try to forget the sadness, the past
Keep the good, and throw the bad

I chose these words
To explain you how far
Music takes you
Like a wonderful mum

You are the fruit of these hopes
No more inner anger
Enjoy the happiness

REFRAIN
But I’m carried by the wind
All the way to you
Poor little boy who was left behind
Without their love nor tenderness
But I’m carried by the wind
All the way to you
Try to forget the sadness, the past
Keep the good, and throw the bad

I hear, your voice
Beating musical time
As piano
The rythme of your heart
And now your life
Is the most beautiful sun
After the rain
At dawn one day.







Track Name: Don't
DON’T

Don’t tell me now
Don’t tell me now, to wreck it all
Oh, Oh, please try to understand
I picked up pieces every day

No, No don’t tell me now
Don’t tell me now to be balanced
Oh, aren’t you blind anymore?
I was falling hard in the dark

I hope my dreams will come true
All the past is gone

Don’t, please don’t tell me now
Oh leave me, leave me alone
Tell me now, tell me now go away

Don’t hurt me now
Don’t hurt me now, ‘cause it’s too late
Oh, Oh please try to understand
I’m trying to see the bright side

No, No don’t hurt me now
Don’t hurt me now, to be patient
DON’T ( continued)

Oh aren’t you blind anymore
For me all our love is wasted

I hope my dreams will come true
All the past is gone

Don’t, please don’t hurt me now
Oh leave me, leave me alone
Hurt me now, hurt me now, go away







Track Name: Sweet Dream
SWEET DREAM

The sun offers the night
To the moon and the moon
Gives the day to the morning sun

That day only one witness
See so beautiful
Which hugs in its wave
All lights of the starry sky

And makes us smell her sweet spices
Like the breath of sleeping children

Sometimes as in a deep dream
Always, she opens her blue azure eyelids
Reflecting all the colors
Of the sky her only love

Planets and heavenlies
Are her musical score
That always remind us how
We are different
And links this so chaotic world
To a more quiet univers

(pont)

SWEET DREAM (continued)

Sometimes as in a deep dream
Always she rises above just to see if
The earth embraces her coasts
Like two lovers who slumber

Early morning, alone
Moon is waiting for sun's
Greetings before setting dawn
And see reveals her last secrets
And draws back down
Peacefully to the horizon

We must all take care of sea
She is the breast of the whole human nature
Try to protect her each day
Like a mum with her newborn
Track Name: JJ
J.J

I woke up, one morning
Ready for a nice trip
At that time the phone rang
Suddenly the news came

Wait for me my J.J
I'll stay and I'll help you
You'll be fine I'm ready
I hang up and I screamed

(refrain)
J.J my friend for twelve years
I always watched on her
J.J my friend for ever
She always watched on me

At the bottom, of the stairs
I felt this inner rage
That by which I went upstairs
To hug her in my arms

You'll have to be strong you know
You can call me night and day
Together it will be a success
Come on J.J be strong

(refrain)

I saw her scattered hair
Poisons and everything
Do not beleive in a joke
This disease is for life

I wanted someone to ask me
My body to treat my J.J
I've even offered my soul
In order for her to heal

(refrain)

This story is to tell
How J.J matters to me
We're always together
On the way hand in hand

One day maybe I'll give you
Some news from my J.J
I'll then write another song
But never forget this one

(refrain)
Track Name: Somewhere
Somewhere

Somewhere in human hearts
Something is off for ever
The earth has set apart
the love she felt, remember

Men believe themselves stronger than her
And claim to be «masters of the world»

Don't be so sure of you
She's full of surprises
And no time to argue
When her sweetness becomes rages

We've already lived these moments
So painful for many of us

Somewhere in human heads
Something has burst forever
As pierced by a blade
Never to think, oh never

What allows you to destroy the earth?
What is the future for oceans?



Somewhere (continued)

(refrain)
Life is not a dream
We should try to understand what it means
Peace without fights, find again our rights
All together

We've already lived these moments
So painful for many of us

Somewhere near the borders
Something breaks the silence
The wars in large number
Killing the people with indifference

Men sit in the kingdom of contempt
And claim to be «masters of the world»

Don't be so sure of you
She's full of surprises
And no time to argue
When her sweetness becomes rages

We've already live these moments
So painful for many of us

Somewhere (continued)

Somewhere we have to find
Something to stop the slaughter
A real strength of mind
To bring us all together

It's only with the wings of an angel
That men can soar higher and higher

Life is not a dream
We should try to understand what it means
Peace without fights, find again our rights
All together

We've already lived these moments
So painful for many of us

Somewhere it is written
Something like a warning
A message from heaven
That explains its deepest feeling

We've already lived these moments
So painful for many of us
And for those who still haven't understood
The answer is somewhere …...
Track Name: Mask
MASK

Memories of our love fade gradually
But I’m already dead so many times
Dreams are often hard to follow with one guy
So stay out of it

I only came to live alone with you
But quite often we were not two but three
I never imagined that inside of your mind
There was another man

I don’t understand why you do it
But I think you have your reasons

I have learn there’s an inner peace I own
I can say anything I want to say
And when I think of our untimely end
Something’s clinging to me

You seem to be lost in uncertainty
Nothing can ever be sincere with you
I can describe to you for hours and hours
But it’s no good for me



REFRAIN
Come on, Come on show me who you are
And be yourself when you stay with me
Come on, come on show me who you are
And quit your mask so I can see you

Biboubiboubi……

You play, you cheat and lie time after time
Your Angel should throw your Devil out
Don’t you want bring a new meaning to your life
A real part of you

Now I found a love I can call my own
And when you’ll hear this song you’ll understand
That I don’t ever want to worry about you
Just live with a sincere guy

I don’t understand why you do it
But I think you have your reasons

Now will you be able to stay yourself
Will you be able to show you as you are?
I’d really like you to be face to face with yourself
To discover the truth


I decided to leave you the day
I realized that you will never change
Explaining also that freedom can’t be bought
Everyone deserves it

REFRAIN
Come on, Come on show me who you are
And be yourself when you stay with me
Come on, come on show me who you are
And quit your mask so I can see you

Biboubiboubi…………………………..

I hope someday you will hear my message
And you will reflect on the sense of life
Maybe at this time, could we become friends
And finally drop the mask.













Track Name: Stealthy
STEALTHY

Turn and listen to this song
Which will remind us
As we danced together
And used to laugh

Think and listen to this song
Which will remind us
Our beautiful sibling
And all our friends

REFRAIN
All my life, I’ll need you
All my life, I’ll need to hear you
My Angel…………………
Stay with me, don’t fly away
You are so stealthy

Cry and listen to this song
Which will remind us
That our father left
I still need you

Look and listen to this song
Which will remind us
The pictures of our life
In spite of you

REFRAIN
All my life, I’ll need you
All my life, I’ll need to hear you
My Angel…………………
Stay with me, don’t fly away
You are so stealthy

(pont)
My Angel
Stay with me, don’t fly away
You are so stealthy

(pont)
Stay with me, don’t fly away
You are so stealthy

(chant)













Track Name: Swing song
Swing song

What do you need to make good music
What do you need to make good melodies
You need colors, rythms and lyrics
It don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing

Can you tell me if you feel the heat
Can you tell me if you feel that it's sweet
You can feel a great joy in singing
It don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing

(refrain x 2)
Believe me your life will not be the same
And keep your breath to keep the tone
Let yourself burn through the notes like a flame
The swing is essential

What do you need to make good music
What do you need to make good melodies
You need to feel a little comic
It don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing

Can you tell me if you feel passion
Can you tell me if you like variations
You can feel a great joy by bouncing
It don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing

(refrain x 2 + 2 dernières phrases du refrain)
Track Name: Mea Culpa
MEA CULPA

Je suis une citoyenne déracinée
Et Boboland est ma cite
J’ai le pied gauche dans l’monde bohême
Et le droit dans le monde des bourgeois

Je vis en milieu protégé
Je cultive une passion pour les
Légumes bios et les gadgets technos
Je n’bois que du thé certifié

Et oui je suis une Bobo
Mais je n’suis pas une Bonobo
Je tague avec sociologie
De toutes les couleurs mes amis

Je possède une vieille 4L
Pour faire le rallye des Gazelles
Avec ses coupons d’réduction
Mon bonhomme se paie une collation

J’ai fait des études supérieures
Des opinions je suis leader
Et quand je rentre dans mon beau quartier
Du digicode il faut s’rapp’ler

Ma défiscalisation est géniale
Sur les énergies renouv’lables
Si t’as 15 000 euros à placer
Un panneau solaire va t’chauffer

Chez nous on adore la pédagogie
Mes enfants ont d’la répartie
Tout cela n’est pas compliqué car
J’les éduque comme je l’ai été

J’aime le slam et les quotas
Je roule en vélo’v et surtout
Je porte des tongs et des bermudas
Je mange souvent du quinoa

J’ai pris de bonnes résolutions
Je sépare plastique et carton
Je m’éclaire à basse consommation
Histoire de rester dans le ton

Je suis le gardien d’la pensée unique
D’une bonne soupe idéologique
Si t’es pas d’accord avec moi
Je te fais mon MEA CULPA.
