Moon (free) 05:04
when we know not  when we feeel much when we have none and when we loose touch and the light fills the space blessing it with its early grace  wounded  /but happy to embrace the same another day another place the southern heat of the day will leave way to the warm night the shift will be a breeze the giant moon will look on when we know not  when we feel much when we have none and when we loose touch and the light fills the space blessing it with its early grace (trace) wounded but happy to embrace the same another day another place the southern heat of the day leaves way to the warm night the shift is now just a breeze the giant moon looks on i remember it long ago wait was it just now i see the crowd, the lights and the show the players they all take a bow i remember it long ago or wait was it just now i see the lights, the crowd and the show the players they all take a bow

Je sais qu'un jour viendra Où je perdrai de vue cette terre La vie prendra congé de moi, en silence Après avoir tiré le suprême rideau sur mes yeux Cependant les étoiles veilleront dans la nuit L'aurore surgira comme la veille Et les heures encore s'enfleront Pareilles à des vagues marines Apportant plaisir et chagrin Quand je pense a cet arrêt de mes instants La digue des instants se brise Soudain pour moi s'éclaire à la lumière de la mort Ton univers avec ces trésors nonchalants Exquise en est la plus humble demeure Exquise y est la vie la moins prisée Les biens que j'ai souhaités en vain Et les biens que j'ai possédés qu'ils s'en aillent murdered days where fear and god be found the veil of ignorance darkens the brightest sun weakness sets the rain is falling dry each moment runs as if shot through the barrel of a gun waisted stars in dark and senseless skies explode in a flash and then wait for eons to die

Hey Now 04:03
the fall and rise of nations and states the war games dont matter much under the sun the goods the bads your heavens and hells your gods  wont be standing the test of space and time the clothes your marketplace your car the toys just dust floating in the ray of morning light the love the hate your sacred your faith misunderstood equations in the bedroom field or a shrine so hey now wont you come along and sing me my favorite song and make it loud now, we'd like to wake up the angels who've been sleeping for too long the road your path to wisdom sold for dollars and cents on your supermarket shelves your four wheel drive revelations on middle class tree lined freeways exit to suburban dreams air conditioned prayers, higher taxes Sunday salvations Monday's fears cell phones and laptops your posted comments pictures and thoughts bottles thrown up to the satellite sea so hey now wont you stroll along and sing me your favorite song and make it last now you know we like to shoot down the clock and kill time once and for all
4.
mid spring in twilight the fire is burning beneath the clouds once again i sit here and wonder as the music plays i'm feeling younger the fancy living, the simple dying the sound of laughter and of crying our time of work and of leisure let the void speak as the preacher i'm building castles in the sand the words of love and hate foolish pride and the shame our pace shaken or in stride they all go away with the tide building castles in the sand
5.
incapacitating your mental horizon the planted seeds of hatred they're rising all sensible action now frozen time awaits for your will to be broken you can't find any truth at all just make your way through the crowd and call there's no freedom in stars and stripes when mothers weep and fathers cry
6.
i came to the place where the sun's late shade fell into the cool summer lake and you stood there, on it's shore's edge called my name a sky red, the day bled i took another breath of life again the weight of things fell upon me when i couldn't see you, hear you call my name i came to a place where the sun's late shade cast its spell against the lake and you stood there on it's shore's edge called my name i couldn't hear you call my name
7.
Softly 03:10
leave all the roads behind you go where the sun will find you you know they'll never reach you let the hand that invites you  softly in leave all the doors behind you you know they'll never find you lay the moon right beside you let the hand that invites you softly in i have my nowhere to lay me down leave all the roads behind you go where the sun will find you the calls will never reach you let the hand that invites you softly in i have my nowhere to lay me down
8.
You were that all to me, love For which my soul did pine A green isle in the sea, love A fountain and a shrine A  dream too bright to last A starry Hope that did arise  But to be overcast For alas For, alas alas with me The light of Life is over No more—no more Shall bloom the thunder-blasted tree, And all my days are trances And all my nightly dreams Are where your grey eye glances, In my ethereal dances

Cygnus 03:11
the pose is dangerous spilling air used for thrust until the wings still frozen in a simulacrum of triumphant flight shorted by the cooling body the next morning an effulgence blows in through vine soaked alabasters the feathers stick to the spit where she turns the bird a terrible prime mover whose fat cracks and snaps the light reveals the limit of your orbit this time you've landed where they eat their gods

Juillet 01:34
C'est l'angoisse de la séparation qui s'épand par tout le monde et donne naissance à des formes sans nombre dans le ciel infini. C'est ce chagrin de la séparation qui contemple en silence toute la nuit d'étoile en étoile et qui éveille une lyre parmi les chuchotantes feuilles dans la pluvieuse obscurité de juillet. C'est cette envahissante peine qui s'épaissit en amours et désirs, en souffrances et en joies dans les demeures humaines, et c'est toujours elle qui fond et ruisselle en chansons.

Outspoken 05:33
winter of life is so unkind when we've played all summer long you say goodbye to your friends and your foes you walk that line as darkness falls i have been always heartbroken somehow always outspoken

about

Deleyaman

Deleyaman is a French-American band founded in 2000 by Aret Madilian, Beatrice Valantin and Gerard Madilian. Their sound can't be pigeon-holed into a single genre, it has been described as enigmatic and poetic. They are the first alternative band to have included the duduk (an ancient wind instrument) in their permanent line-up.
