about

A song about how hard it is to let our dreams and childhood references behind to become a man or a woman in a society where nothing seems to be made for us.
This "black" moment should be use with respect for our dreams and the child inside us to make it turn beautiful and full of hope for the adult we want to be or need to be.

lyrics

- BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL -

Twenty-five year's street Mr cabdriver
Twenty-five year's street Mr cabdriver

Oh yes you're great you know it's for real
People like you some adore 
Yes you're the one without compromise 
Lost in a circle of love

Everybody got to see you're curly hair
Your brand new clothes, kitsch way of life
Life , watch your life !

Everybody got to see you walking
'Cause black is beautiful
The world is not clean as it seems 
Don't you aware of it ?
Everybody like to see you dreaming 
Could you escape like you would ?
The nightmare start to let you know...
Could you sing like you should ?

Like a stranger in your own town
You keep on running on you own
Your favorite watch is overwhelmed
Your friends are working all the day
Day, after days !

Everybody got to see you walking
'Cause black is beautiful
The world is not clean as it seems 
Don't you aware of it ?
Everybody like to see you dreaming 
Could you escape like you would ?
The nightmare start to let you know...
Could you sing like you should ?

Your teenage times are "fade away"
You must be working like a slave 
and be one of them in the crowd
Crowd , crowd !

Everybody got to see you walking
'Cause black is beautiful
The world is not clean as it seems 
Don't you aware of it
Everybody like to see you dreaming 
Could you escape like you would
The nightmare start to let you now
Could you sing like you should ?
Your teenage times are "fade away"
You must be working like a slave "
And be one of them in the crowd
Crowd , crowd !
