Frank Cet album est absolument magique de bout en bout. Un pur bonheur à écouter et réécouter en boucle non stop. À titre personnel, il révèle beaucoup d’émotions et de sentiments très profonds. Kelly McFarling a atteint avec cet opus, une maturité musicale incroyable. Et la tessiture de sa voix a encore gagné en puissance et même en sensualité. Quelle artiste ! Quelle voix ! Quelle perfection ! Un vrai diamant musical... Favorite track: Easy As I.

Delicate 04:28
1. Delicate Out on the streets of what you told me there are buildings falling down on both sides i’m holding steady on my feet telling you, telling me it’s alright Sometimes I think that we just say it We wanna hear what it sounds like out loud But be careful this is delicate What we say is gonna follow us around The word can have so many layers One for you, one for me, one for us I pay attention to the teller How it moves is the truth physical Sometimes I think that we just say it We wanna hear what it sounds like out loud But be careful this is delicate What we say is gonna follow us around I can’t walk away from this I mean what I say with this And I know that it's delicate You keep saying never always Every time ever since absolute But I was there for the grey space I was living in the bright lights of you Sometimes I think that you just say it You wanna hear what it sounds like out loud But be careful this is delicate What you say is gonna follow you around I can’t walk away from this I mean what I say with this I know that it's delicate The world is made of words The families and the herds To be known is to be heard
2.
Follow me down Follow me down I can’t go up I wish I could I wish I could not see I wish I could not see the cracks But I’ve been looking I’ve been looking And then I find Find myself paralyzed Find myself paralyzed by other lives But I’ve been moving I’ve been moving
3.
Birds 03:50
I am a late morning sleeper When I leave my mind alone A dream you haven’t finished Can become a longer one Birds out on a wire like a bracelet on the blue How long can you decorate deciding what to do You’re never gonna choose When you stacked your patterns I became an open line Of what do we inherit Of what do we leave behind Birds out on a wire like a bracelet on the blue How long can you decorate deciding what to do You’re never gonna choose But you’ve got those eyes And they look good to me Even when they are closed Even when they’re wandering
4.
Got to knowing every word in its passing All that I have In the kitchen tap it out on the table All that I have North Decatur and a forest behind it All that I have Oh magnolia painting light on the window All that I have My collection deep the habit my memory All that I have
5.
Am I The last The last of my kind I know how this instrument is designed And I’m standing on the edge of past my prime And everyone can ask me, yeah that’s fine But I don’t really know Am I The last The last of my kind I can say I do not want it all I prefer the mystery unfold But if I let it go well, its gonna go And I can’t get it back Will it be lonely? In a way that I cannot see? Am I The last The last of my kind
6.
Century 05:45
Out in the garden where we started We are two strangers trying to understand We just want to know how the locals grow Before the sun comes up we go out Before the sun goes down we come out When the light is changing that’s when we go outside to find our way I am exposed Wearing nothing but my clothes And my companion she is blooming I can see it on her skin Before the sun comes up we go out Before the sun goes down we come out When the light is changing that’s when we go outside to find our way And the ghosts out here don’t mind They see it all the time On the edge you cannot hide On a sea bed out in the moonlight
7.
Now We Know 03:54
I can’t shake the feeling that this ship is sinking Casual as a curve Lower and lower It’s a shame we cannot use All the little maps we drew Back when the world was new Now we know about the details Now we know about the dark Now we know about the details Now we know about the cost
8.
Some fill it up with aliens Some fill it with mermaids I fill mine with vanity and mistakes that I have made While I ache for what is coming and I ache for what is gone Out on the open sea with your batteries and the stars Can you see just how small you really are While we ache for what is coming and we ache for what is gone While the mountains keep on spilling into rivers we keep drinking from How do you populate the void?
9.
Relevant 03:37
The vision of what’s relevant is getting crowded, getting strange All I see could scatter me It doesn’t stop it doesn’t wait But the longer I look at you The longer I want to I look both ways Crooked straight Back and forth across your face I’ve seen the range Watched it change I’m leaning in I’m leaning in Cause the longer I look at you the longer I want to
10.
Easy As I 04:00
I am moving through the rooms Touching everything I knew Pick it up and put it down let it pass through Light comes crimson in the fall I put stars up on the wall I was given my own vision I recall I want to let things go as easy as I pick them up Oh release the physical Carpet woven on the floor We wore dresses fell asleep on furniture I wanna let things go as easy as I pick them up
