Carmen Seguí Torres Las letras. A veces son divertidas y algo surrealistas, como Quantum Monkey (love it!) pero también hay canciones de amor muy chulas (You are the river). Las voces suenan muy bien juntas y los instrumentos se combinan genial. Adorable el violín y la guitarra española. En resúmen, música suave y creativa que no te deja indiferente. Favorite track: The Corner Of Your Mind.

Track Name: Time (Will Take Our Love Away)
What were the lights that fell through the sky ?
Now the forests they burn as the dinosaurs die.
Lets hide underground in the roots of the redwood tree.

Now time it will come and speed us away.
Don't ever look back, now I am holding your hand.
Our love's like the code that runs through our DNA,
We're practically the same.

The days and the hours, I´m scared,
That time will come and take our love away.
'cos when I look around
I see the change of the seasons I dodge the second hand,
it'll skewer us and lead us to decay.
Cause time will come and take our love away. 

I see the second hand./Tick, tock, it never stops
Run from the hour glass./ Tick, tock it never stops
But I know I ll make you mine./ Tick, tock it never stops
In time. /In Time. 

Now time it will come and speed us away.
Don't ever look back, now I am holding your hand.
Our love's like the code that runs through our DNA,
We're practically insane.

The days and the hours, I´m scared,
That time will come and take our love away.
'cos when I look around
I see the change of the seasons I dodge the second hand,
it'll skewer us and lead us to decay.
Cause time will come and take our love
I know time will take our love
Time is gonna take our love away
Track Name: I Keep Holding On
If I lit a fire and sent out smoke signals,
Do you think you'd reply?
You like a burglar alarm that rings just to wake me up,
I don’t remember the code.
Time cuts us so softly, we're falling apart.
If I hold out my hand, and count to ten,
Will you be there?

I keep holding on, I keep holding on, I keep holding on to you.

Is this hope lost? Will this pain stop?
As the city gets dark,
Like the fire in my heart that lights up those melodies,
It never goes out.

I keep holding on, I keep holding on, I keep holding on to you.

If I lit a fire and sent out smoke signals,
Do you think you'd reply?
Track Name: The Corner Of Your Mind
Now that you have gone I have your smile, I carry on.
It’s such a long time ago, are you alright?

I see your picture, it's so familiar, its like you never went away.
Now I am hungry, I miss you baby. I need you with me, night and day.
In the corner of your mind, am I with you?

The girl on the train, she had your hair, am I insane?
I can’t resist the sight of you, but I am alright…

I see your picture, it's so familiar, its like you never went away.
Now I am hungry, I miss you baby. I need you with me, night and day.
In the corner of your mind, am I with you?

Am I with you, am I with you, am I?
Track Name: Slipping Under
Here I go again, I don’t know where to start it
While the light of hope is guiding up my way
Here I come again; I know that I can make it
Looking for that place where satellites collide

Slipping under, slipping under

Here I go again and this time is the one
The bit of my heart is drumming loud and clear
As the fire starts it burns the pain away
Let me take you to the valleys of desire

Slipping under, slipping under

If you walk away, you walk away
I’ll follow you, I’ll follow you

Slipping under, slipping under
Track Name: Laser Guided Bombs
Do you hear the sound of the train?
It’s fading out and coming back again.
This landscape and its digital scars,
And the fading light in ones and zeros.

Did you feel the temperature change?
And you shouldn’t raise your voice in darkness.
Since I fell from that military plane,
I hover over ponds and watch birds fly.

But I am used to guiding bombs
Use lasers to drive them home.
I am strapped to the belly of a plane.
Put away until they need me again.

Do you see the trails in the sky?
Are they like me with a camera-eye?
The tall reeds and the elegant winds
They dance together; they sway, like old friends.

And do you know what time it gets dark?
That’s when I siphon fuel from parked cars.
Since I fell from that military plane,
I study insect’s eyes with laser beams.

But I am used to guiding bombs
Use lasers to drive them home.
I am strapped to the belly of a plane.
Put away until they need me again.

Since I fell from that military plane,
I hover over ponds and watch birds fly.
And study insect’s eyes with laser beams.
Track Name: You Are The River
I am in Rain, standing all alone.
Lonely nights, waiting for you to phone.
As I search for coins, watching midnight trains
Rumble and rolling by.

I am in the rain, searching for words to say.
The city lights, they don’t help me find my way.
But I look down to the river,
There’s my life floating by…

But you, you are the river and you carry me.

Just take me away,
Turn night into day,
Don’t leave me now,
Just don’t leave me now.

I am in the rain,
But I know that you re by my side.
You and me, struggling against the tide.
But every river, winds into the sea,
Just stay with me.

But you, you are the river and you carry me.
Track Name: The Quantum Monkey
Step one, I smuggle through the gates,
Got a ripe pear and overflowing dates, yeah!
Oh my god, from where I am sitting,
I am finger tips from monkey city.

Step two, when nobody is looking,
I use my left hand, see my monkey fruit fly, oh!
I feed baboons, I feed the gibbons,
I earn my place in monkey heaven.

I am searching high and low for the monkey strings,
Are you the hundredth monkey, are you?
High and low for those monkey strings,
Did the monkey wash his apple, did he?

Step three, I´m counting all the monkeys,
Got a notepad and a tally chart for cleaned fruit.
I left my wife for this monkey theory,
The quantum world never seemed so hairy.

And I see their cold stares; I know they hold the answers,
As they wave their hands, holding up bananas.
- A ripe one first, then black then yellow,
this quantum code’s a crafty fellow.

The quantum strings that connect your fridge,
To eleven new dimensions, I close my eyes…
Track Name: The River Goes
Into the space, into the stars, into the universe itself
Out of the dark, irradiate all your mystery away
Get in the track, follow the clues, get to the place where you belong
Find your way home, 76-destiny lane

The river goes into the blue sea
Or it flows up the mountain high
The river goes into the blue sea
Or it dies where the sun goes down

On the inside and on the outside, travel the valleys of your soul
Adrenalize, anatomize every molecule of yours
Get it in the game, go get your kicks, life is too short to play it soft
Fasten your belt and ride on this spinning carousel

The river goes into the blue sea
Or it flows up the mountain high
The river goes into the blue sea
Or it dies where the sun goes down

The river goes, where does the river go?
Track Name: The Desert Rain - Part I
The dust cloud that stifles all sound.
The hooves of his horse, the wind how it roars!
This is time to keep moving, no time to feel old,
Just push through the cold desert night
The wind howls and oh! how it roars!
They are not far behind;
How they'll hunt down an outlaw.
He's in between worlds, the ghost of a man,
The fresh rain on sand.
The silent storms that pour their rain through canyons
and cut through stone.
The cactus towers that hide their flowers till dawn
- they’re all alone.

Have you ever smelt the desert rain overhead in clouds?
Or wondered why the desert heat plays those tricks on your mind?
Track Name: All Is Silent
To the morning light that lights the clouds and falters when you've gone.
To our footsteps as they melt in ice concealing where we're from.

To that restless fear inside of me; draws blood when you're away.
All is silent here, without you now.
To the embassies and their dignitaries and their fireworks in the sky.

To the pendulums and harbour tides, that sway from side to side.
To the sewing machine and it's empty reels, as we roll across the floor.

All is silent here without you now

If speed is no sensation, but distance over time.
Give me the heartbreak of a nation, for every petty crime.
And those fireworks that light the sky; mere distractions all the same.

Now that all is silent here without you.

Without you now.
Track Name: Better
Today you looked up to the sky
To see if you could find yourself reflected
It seems it’s been a long, long walk
You’ve gone lost in your way to nowhere and back

Better you sing your song put your words on
Better you dream out loud dreamer dream on
And you never compromise what you want to be.

Hey you now tell me how’s your life?
Is this the place you wanted your head to lay?
What’s this? Another boring job
Did you take it cause you were told to do so?

Come close to me, reach out through me
Open wide the window to your soul
Take your time and rewind
Back to the day where it all went wrong

I do feel better now - I feel better
